About this listing
This cute cabana is located in a quiet and green part of the island. It's the only house on the property which provides lots of privacy. The large deck, hammocks and tropical yard make you relax immediately.
This cabana is situated in a spacious fenced in yard full with tropical flowers, plants and trees and with lots of privacy. Two bicycles are complimentary so it's easy to explore the island and bike your way around.
The cabana is a studio-like house, built on posts about 10 feet above the ground. This means more breeze, better views, less bugs, a shady place under the house and dry feet during a tropical shower. In the house is one queen bed and a futon couch. The futon can be used for 1 adult or 2 children under 12. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove/oven, fridge, coffee machine, blender, toaster and all the other necessary utensils. There's a private bathroom with hot water shower.
The breezy veranda offers a beautiful view over the green neighborhood and is a perfect spot to read, watch birds or have a chat with the iguana pet that visits often. Under the house are some comfortable hammocks and in the yard are several shady seating areas with beach chairs. There's also a grill in the yard on which you can grill your own caught fish or lobster.
If you have enough of the diving, snorkeling, fishing, swimming or other activities you can entertain yourself with a small library, a selection of board- and card games, cable TV and wireless Internet. Or just hang out on the veranda with a cold beer or some Caribbean rum.
The Sunny Cabana is the only house on the property and the whole yard is yours.
Interaction with Guests
As your host I can help you with finding your way on the island, booking trips or just leave you alone and let you enjoy the 'go slow' mentality of Caye Caulker. My husband and I live on the other side of the island near the split, on the same property as our restaurant Wish Willy Bar & Grill, and are always available for questions/advice. You can ride by on the bike, call us or send an e-mail.
The cabana is located just outside the village in a mostly residential area. Caye Caulker is a small island and all the restaurants, shops, supermarkets, dive-/snorkel tour operators are only a 10 minute walk/5 minute bike ride away. The sea and beach are a 3 minute walk away and within 10-15 minutes on the bike you're at 'The Split', where the island is split in two and which is the most popular spot for swimming, snorkeling or hanging out at the famous 'Lazy Lizard Bar'.
There are no paved streets on Caye Caulker, just a few sandy roads. Way of transport is either by foot, bike or golf cart, cars are not allowed. If you're tired of walking or cycling you can catch a golf cart taxi which are readily available for 5 BZD (2,50 usd) pp to everywhere on the island.
Other Things to Note
Check out the special weekly and monthly rates and in the slow season (September - October) prices are lower (if you fill in the dates, the right prices show up automatically). This cabana is available for short and long term rent. Prices are based on rental periods up to 3 months, if you want to stay longer, ask for the special rates.
Also check my other listings on Caye Caulker: the COZY CABANA and the CARIBBEAN GUEST HOUSE. They are located in the backyard of our restaurant, Wish Willy Bar & Grill, one of the most popular and unique restaurants of the island (on the North side of Caye Caulker, close to 'the split'.)
In the house smoking is not allowed, if you want you can smoke on the veranda or elsewhere in the yard. Only guests are allowed in the cabana, unless approved otherwise by the owner.
The Sunny Cabana is a self catering rental and during your stay it will not be cleaned. We provide linens and towels and it's your own responsibility to clean/do laundry. If you stay longer than a week, we provide cleaning services -if wanted- for a small contribution.
This place was awesome. It is a beautiful house set back and close to everything you need since the island is so small. Me and my friend stayed here and with 2 people it's perfect. If you stay here with 3 or 4, make sure you rent bikes since the place just comes with 2. The bikes were ESSENTIAL to getting around and made it super easy to go anywhere. We would sometimes lock them up outside Wish Willy ' s and walk around town from there.
1) there is hot water! Just make sure to turn the right knob on first in the shower.
2) it seems hot at first but when sleeping at night with the windows and fans it's not bad. Just make sure to close them in the AM. Few affordable places have AC on the island so the fans were awesome.
3) go to Ragamuffin for the 3 stop snorkeling trip. It was amazing!!!
4) if you can try to coordinate to come during lobster fest, do it!!! Great time.
If i come back to Caye Caulker I'll definitely stay here again. We had a blast. #goslow #onelove
We had an amazing stay here, Monique and Maurice were very welcoming. The cabana is lovely and we especially liked the hammocks and the bikes are great for getting around Caye Caulker. We'd definitely recommend staying here.
The sunny cabana was Perfect! Wir haben dort eine wunderbare Woche verbracht. Es war sauber und für alles war gesorgt. Monique ist eine tolle Gastgeberin - hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Auch Caye Caulker kann ich nur empfehlen, es ist eine wunderbar entspannte Insel. Wenn ihr auf der Suche nach guten Essen seid, geht zu Moniques und Maurices Restaurant "wish Willy" - ihr bekommt den besten gegrillten Red Snapper auf der Insel. Wir würden jederzeit wieder in der sunny cabana wohnen!
Excellent experience at the Sunny Cabana!
The place was very clean and beautiful. We had a dog friend that was coming from time to time!
The bike were very useful to get around town. The instruction that were left in the cabana gave us a lot of info on the island and how to get around. Wish Willy restaurant was very good and Maurice was very kind to us.
Monique was lovely and made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was pleasant and comfortable and the location ideal (pretty tree-lined street close to the airstrip) Would definitely recommend.
Great moment in the cabana, everything is there for your stay.
Monique is a very pleasant person and very disponible available.
Thank you for this moment.
We had a lovely time in the cabana, it has two bikes which are amazing to explore the island. The cabana was comfortable and had everything you needed as well as being located in a lovely quite street only minutes from the beach front with shops and restaurants. Also don't miss out on a chilled out tasty experience at wish Willys restaurant!!!

About the Host, Monique
Originally from the Netherlands and now living in Belize for almost 10 years. Next to helping out my husband in his restaurant I rent out 3 houses/cabanas on Caye Caulker (Belize), a small tropical island in the Caribbean Sea. I'm enjoying the 'go slow' mentality of the island and live by the day.
