About this listing
The Cozy Cabana is a cute and cozy studio, located in a quiet neighborhood and only minutes walk to the famous Split. The interior is basic, though comfortable.
The cabana hosts a maximum of 2 people and is a perfect hangout for snorkeling-, fishing-, sailing- or diving trips or just relax under a shady almond tree in the yard. Inside is a small living area with kitchen (stove/oven, fridge, all necessary utensils), half separate bedroom with a double bed and a spacious shower/bathroom. The cabana does not have hot water, but in a tropical climate you'll be happy to take a refreshing shower. Outside is a comfortable veranda with hammock.
Wireless Internet is free and there's a small library and some board games. If you like dogs, you're at the right spot, because we have 3. At day time you'll find them in the yard and they love it when you pet them. They're not allowed inside the rental, but if you don't mind, they hang out with you on the veranda.
Next to the house is our dock, which is a perfect spot for a morning coffee, sunbathing or a dip in the water. This dock also gives you a front row seat for the most beautiful sunsets.
The cabana itself is in the backyard of our famous outdoor restaurant 'Wish Willy' and from your veranda you look out over the restaurant. We're open every night for dinner, some days also breakfast and/or lunch is being served.
As a guest you have access to all the hammocks in the yard, the restaurant and our dock. We also rent out bikes and kayaks for reasonable prices.
Interaction with Guests
My husband (Maurice) and I live on the same property and usually one of us is around for questions or advice. When you arrive we will give you a short introduction and if you want to we can arrange private snorkeling- and/or fishing trips.
The cabana is just a moments walk to 'The Split', where the island is split in two and which is the most popular spot for swimming, snorkeling or have a drink at the famous bar 'the Lazy Lizard'. The main street -Front Street- is right around the corner. Here you'll find several restaurants, supermarkets, souvenir shops and food- and fruit stands and the local people you meet, are always in for a chat. The part of the island where the cabana is located is only 200 yards wide so the sea & beach are always nearby.
There are no paved streets on Caye Caulker and the way of transport is by foot, bike or golf cart. Cars are not allowed. Forget about fast pace: 'go slow' is the motto of the island.
Other Things to Note
There are special weekly and monthly rates and in the slow season (September-October) prices are lower (if you fill in the dates, the right price will show up automatically).
See also my other rentals: Caribbean Guest House (a 2 bedroom house on the same property) and Sunny Cabana (a very private cabana in a tropical yard, located at the other side of the village).
In the cabana smoking is not allowed, but feel free to smoke on the veranda. Unregistered guests are not allowed in the cabana, but are welcome to hang out in the restaurant which is located on the same property.
The cabana will only be cleaned after you leave, during your stay you're responsible for cleaning, including linens if necessary (for longer stays extra linens will be provided). No cleaning fee is charged.
