“A great time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

I just returned after spending a week with my sister, daughter,girlfriend and her two children. We had a great time! We are seasoned travelers and my girlfriend is an accomplished interior designer. The house is gorgeous, well maintained and very comfortable for all of us. Richard and Dianna are extremely personable and knowledgable about all activities and goings on in Ambergris. They hooked us up with one of the best fishing guides ever and a super catamaran sail boat rental for the day. They know the nearby restaurants, although we ate only one dinner out, as we caught lots of snapper from our 2 days of fishing. The long pier is great as you can thow out a fishing line anytime (although the fish are small off the pier) and they have two double Ocean Kayaks which are quality kayaks that are yours to use anytime. Mexico Rocks is an easy 1/3 mile only from the house and you can kayak to it from the house, tie up to a bouy and snorkle anytime. No need to pay the charge to have a boat take you there on their schedule, not yours. In summary, book Casa Rana..you wont regret it!!

We have a family of five and when we go away we typically rent homes to accommodate the size and rambunctiousness of our family. It is always difficult to find the right size, right location and amenities that please the adults as well as the children. Well Casa Rana does it to perfection! Firstly the home is simply beautiful, tastefully and very well done. The layout itself lends itself to both socializing and privacy. The location is wonderful, in a quiet part of north Ambergris Caye yet a quick boat ride to all you need. Our hostess Diana was great and answered all our questions and took care of all of our needs. For me, a busy mom, it was like being in my own personal Ritz Carleton in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. I highly recommend Casa Rana.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2010

We recently spent 8 wonderful days at Casa Rana. Owners, Richard & Diana are a joy to work with. Richard answered all of our questions quickly and helped us plan a great family vacation. Diana met us at the San Pedro airstrip and transferred us by boat to their secluded paradise on the north shore of Ambergris Caye. The feng shui villa was more beautiful than the pictures convey, with all the amenities you need for a memorable getaway. Each of the bedrooms are extremely large with private baths and huge walk-in showers with glass basins. The bedding is top notch and the towels are thick and soft. We used their recommended provision company and arrived with the kitchen fully stocked, beer chilled and all of our groceries put away. We loved having the White Sands Dive Shop pick us up on Casa Rana's private dock, taking us out for some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the world. We also enjoyed Sri Lanka, Diana's sweet island dog who does her part to make you feel at home. We have been to Belize several times and always stayed south of San Pedro, where getting around on golf carts and bikes makes for easier access. However, staying on the north end is simply beautiful and although remote, Diana took us to town in the Casa Rana boat anytime we wanted, and in the evenings we would take the water taxi to restaurants nearby. We highly recommend Casa Rana and certainly look forward to returning.
