Please note that we currently have ten rentals available to suit different budgets and needs : ALL ON A GORGEOUS BEACHFRONT PROPERTY IN CAYE CAULKER, BELIZE.
We are located on a prime Caribbean beachfront property. Facing the reef, we are blessed with an almost constant cool North-Easterly breeze. Most nights star-gazing is amazing while listening to the surf breaking on the reef. Naturalists and children alike will enjoy the abundant species of migratory birds, reptiles and marine life.
We have a 175' pier with several private bathing areas. At the end of the pier is a covered palapa with 2 hammocks. Each guest is assigned their own private beach cruiser bicycle with basket which is ideal for cruising around town. Basic fishing hand-lines are available for those guests that want to try the local technique. 2 kayaks are also available on a first-come basis.
Interaction with Guests
Colin and Linda will greet you on arrival and show you to your cabana. You will be shown a map of the island and the lay of the land. In the event that Colin + Linda are away in Canada; Juan our manager and his wife Emilita will be your hosts. A staff member is always on-site to answer your questions or concerns.
Colinda Cabanas is located in a quiet serene area of the island. The edge of town is a short 5 minute stroll down the beach. Many guests take tours off-site and go snorkeling, fishing or kayaking. However many guests just love to hang out on our pier, read a good book, go swimming and enjoy the ambiance.
We are located about a 5 minute walk from the nearest store or restaurant. Or 2 minutes by bicycle.
Our exact location on Caye Caulker is as follows:
From the 2 water taxi piers located on the front of the island ; step off the end of the pier, take a left and walk 10 minutes South along the beach. We are just past the Anchorage Resort.
From the airport : Walk 400 feet to the beach. Turn left and walk North along the beach for 3 minutes.
From the back (water jets) pier walk 50 yards to middle street, turn right and walk 10 minutes along middle street.
Middle street dead-ends at our property.
If you arrive tired or with a pile of luggage; taxis charge U.S. $2.50 per person and only take a few minutes to get to our place.
Other Things to Note
Regional Disclaimer: The island of Caye Caulker is in the coastal Caribbean / tropical region of Belize. While this provides incredible beauty and natural wonders from sky to sea, it also means that, heat, humidity, sudden tropical squalls and power outages are common occurrences.
Living on a beach surrounded by jungle also means an abundance of Geckos, Iguanas, ants, and land crabs.
Occasionally sand flies and mosquitoes can also be problematic.
That said, we do everything we can to ensure your stay is comfortable and pleasant.....

We stayed at colinda cabanas for three days/two nights in June and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A great location quietly set off the main streets but close enough to be convenient. The small cabana (#6) was perfectly equipped for our stay. It's the details that make this property a great value and a comfort: Complimentary bikes were in great shape, enough fans to keep cool, quality coffee provided, WIFI, hammock on the porch, kayaks for use, the dock with hammocks and chairs, housekeeping service, the property is very well cared for and the owner/staff were very helpful. I can highly recommend these cabanas for any length of stay on Caye caulker and look forward to when we can return. Thanks Linda!
Had a great time at Colindas Cabanas! Colin was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was great, loved the little jetty. It also had enough fans to keep us cool at night! Thanks :)
Colinda Cananas is like a utopia - your very own colourful beach hut with your own hammock, located 3 meters from the sea.
The property has an own dock but the water has quite a lot of algas - like most places at Caye Caulker - so we ended up spending very little time here and swam at the Split instead.
Colinda is further from the "centre" but each cabana has two complimentary bikes and cycling 5-10 minutes actually feels great after a big seafood dinner :)
Colin was a 5* host - he gave us great recommendations, let us use the bikes after we checked out and even asked the stuff to put a bouquet of flower in our room for my birthday.
We 100% recommend you to stay here!
The experience at Colinda's was very good for us. Linda was extremely helpful and answered all the questions we had, and also at times went out of her way to ensure we got what we needed.
The room was clean, and comfortable, even without air conditioning. Added bonuses were bikes included, coffee in the room, and a beautiful dock with hammocks!
Would definitely stay again.
Caye Caulker is THE island to visit in Belize. Colinda's Cabanas is tucked away on North side of the island where we enjoyed access to a very clean room, swimming, hammocks and tables on the dock, canoes and quality bicycles. Our cabana was equipped with fresh coffee beans, coffee maker, basic need dishes, soap and shampoo, lots of fans, lots of drinking water and a fridge. It was tastefully decorated, bright and happy. We loved our 2 nights here and enjoyed biking around the island. On site managers Juan and Emilita were professional, friendly and even shared some of their mosquito spray with us. There was recycling and community sun screen available. A superb experience! Colinda's is a must. It's a nice refuge 10 minutes from the main strip to which you will enjoy returning after an active day of exploring and snorkeling!
Had an amazing time at the colinda cabanas. They where more than helpful showing us where to go on the island. We even decided to stay an extra night because we enjoyed it so much. Out of all the places we saw on the island we were so happy to have picked colinda cabanas! Very clean and beautiful!
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Colinda's Cabanas. Colin and Linda were out of town when we were there but had left Juan in charge to take care of us and the property. Juan was an incredible host and very helpful with any questions we had about tours or things to do on the island. The rooms were very well kept and freshened up daily, and the property always looked nice. One afternoon Juan offered to cut us down a couple of coconuts to try from one of the trees on the property! Having the bicycles available to use was quite nice and we enjoyed being able to go out in the water on the kayaks. We loved Caye Caulker very much and I'm sure we will return, and will definitely book with them again!

About the Host, Colinda
We (Colin and Linda) are from the Okanagan/Shuswap areas of British Columbia, Canada. We now call Lillooet B.C. and Caye Caulker, Belize our home. We were looking for a life-style change (needed paying jobs) and purchased this small beachfront resort in late January 2011. We spent the last year fixing it up and are now starting to enjoy Island living.
We welcome your visit to our little spot in paradise.
