About this listing
San Pedro is perfect for divers and lovers of nature. It's perfect as the last leg of a Belizean travel adventure when all you want to do is veg out on the beach.
Ambergris Caye has a lot to boast about. She lies just 1/4 mile west of the longest living barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere! The apartments are located on Princess Drive in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye...2 Great private 1 bedroom apartments available...nice and cozy and just a couple minutes walk to the beach. Modest and close to restaurants, Churches, shops, bars, clubs, resorts, and dive shops. A/C, fully furnished, full kitchen with utensils, living room, bathroom w/ hot/cold shower and towels, cable TV, private bedroom. San Pedro, Ambergris Caye is a tourist haven and famous for crystal clear diving and of course...the Blue Hole, Mayan Ruins and Rain Forest. We can arrange all tours/diving/activities. The caretaker, John Harvey, is very nice and extremely helpful. He even owns a restaurant and can provide meals if you wish...yummy!
Also for our guests wishing to stay for a while (over 3 days) we offer maid service for a nominal fee of $20/day. This can be arranged on site through our caretaker, John Harvey.
Internet when it's working (island life what can you expect?)
Interaction with Guests
Before during and after their stay
No smoking in the apartments, please. Do not leave your clothes on the line outside or other valuables outside. Turn off A/C when leaving. Lock up apartments and windows when leaving for the day. Have fun!
Unfortunately listing is not as described. The property is not on the beach but on a back road, unmarked. Wifi was spotty. We chose this because of the supposed location, but it was not walking distance fr the airport, beach, or water taxi. We left a day early. Way overpriced for what it was.
The place was exactly what we needed. It was far enough from everything that we weren't in the hustle and bustle of town, but could get there if need be. We were on our honeymoon and this gave us the perfect launching pad to go out and about with a nice place of our own to turn in for the night.
The caretaker gave us a meal at his place down the road Christmas day and it was excellent. All they do is jerk chicken and it was one of the best meals of our trip
Carmen's house is close to everything which is ideal as we like to walk. The kitchen is equipped enough for cooking though we ate out most of the time. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable. It would be nice to have a couple of lounge chair to be used outside to enjoy the breeze. Mr. Harvey was kind enough to invite and provide us our first dinner. It was so delicious. Thank you. The neighbour, Mr. Florencio was very friendly and offered his help if we can't get hold of Mr. Harvey. Overall, we have a good time here and will come back again.
This is a very comfortable place to stay. San Pedro is an absolutely great place to take a vacation and this is a great landing spot. If you're looking for luxury this is not your spot. The TV worked great with loads of cable channels. They also provided me with a mifi WI-FI which worked out great! DON"T pass on the opportunity to eat at Robin's kitchen. There is a grocery store around the corner if you need thing from the store.
Carmen's place in San Pedro is great - clean, comfortable and safe. It is about a 15 or 20 minute walk into downtown San Pedro, where there are a ton of restaurants, or about 3 or 4 minute walk from the beach! There are restaurants all along the beach, and a grocery/convenience store nearby as well. The kitchen is fully stocked - we cooked breakfast nearly every morning. Carmen's caretaker was very helpful in getting us settled and even took us out for a complimentary supper our first night (Robin's Jamaican jerk chicken - so good!).
-a/c in bedroom
-toilet works well
-far away from the main part of town. get a golf cart or bike rental or plan on taking a lot of taxis.
-shower has very low water pressure
-overall condition - it's not actually dirty, it's just old and rundown so no matter how clean it actually is it still looks dirty.
-infested with cockroaches - my personal best was killing 4 in one night
-kitchen was not equipped. there was 1 bowl and like 2 pans.
-tv never worked and we were there for 5 days.
-no washer or dryer but they are listed as amenities.
The trip was a success. Carmen and her caretaker took excellent care of us. We arrived early and phoned John and he met us at the property within 10 (website hidden) wasn't working, but a new one showed up a couple days later. We didn't spend too much time in the room, but it worked for what we needed it for. I would recommend this place to someone who is looking for an inexpensive place in San Pedro.
