We loved the large deck and open concept kitchen with the warm breeze and spectacular view of the ocean. The sleeping accommodations are spacious and beautiful. There is nothing lacking from this place! Biking (bikes available at the villa) to the local restaurants for a beer and a swim and a bite was wonderful, as well as walking along the sand at night to go for dinner under the starry nights. La Perla was a fantastic vacation villa in a beautiful enviornment. A wonderful escape from life :)

The property is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The house's second floor was the main floor (kitchen/dining/master bed) which provided wonderful elevated views of the water. There was a screened in porch off the master with a hammock. Very romantic.
The kitchen was adequately furnished. I understand that we could have had cooks come in and will try that next time. The house would be great for a family or for sharing by multiple couple as it is very spacious.
We were able to walk to 3 restaurants as well as a dive operation.
A slice of heaven. Would defiantly rent this property again!!!
What a wonderful way to spend a few weeks over the holidays. Relaxed, beautiful, and right on the beach, the house is bright, gorgeous, and tastefully decorated. Biking to nearby yoga classes was lots of fun, with a refreshing jump in the pool as reward upon our return. Definitely worth a visit!
We spent 5 glorious days at this beautiful villa - the decor and spaces are wonderful, the pool is perfect for relaxing or swimming or socializing, and the beach is super for exploring and walks or bike rides to local beachside restaurants and cafes for lunch or dinner. Or you can cook at the villa! All wonderful and fabulous - you wont be disappointed!
We spent two weeks relaxing in Villa Opal, La Perla del Caribe, Belize. At + 28C it is a long way from the -28C we left behind! La Perla is its own little neighborhood. Twelve private homes along the beach roughly 5 miles from San Pedro. A quick 20 minute ride on the Coastal Express and you are in the heart of town. Four restaurants within walking distance. A cool little grocery store about 15 min walk down the beach. Kayaks at our disposal; a beautiful swimming pool in which to escape the heat; fishing off the dock; a poolside barbecue to fry up our catch; fully equipped kitchen etc. Our family of 5 had a wonderful, relaxing time. We used the villas bicycles and rode to Ak'Bol for a little yoga on the dock. Another day we had a yoga teacher come to our spacious deck for a private yoga class followed by massages. We all enjoyed a snorkeling trip to Shark Ray Alley and then lunch on a neighboring island called Caye Caulker. The trip to Altun Ha and Marauba Jungle Spa is definitely worth the adventure. Belize is everything we read about on Trip Advisor and we understand now why Ambergris Caye was voted as the number 1 island in 2013.
