“Amazing Honeymoon - 10 Stars - Seriously!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Since we've been home we've been trying to think what to say for this review - we can only speak of the Casa, Casita, our host, the dogs, Eldon & Mirta, the beach, San Pedro, our tour, and all of Belize in non-descriptive superlatives - amazing, unbelievable (unbelizeable?), indescribable, awesome! We know that's not very helpful, so we ask that you trust us. We could not have picked a better place to celebrate our honeymoon!

We spent several nights in the Casa as well as the Casita, and both are clean, well-maintained, well-appointed, and luxurious. We cooked many meals for ourselves in the kitchens that were enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the Caribbean while staying at the Casa and the screened-in porch with a sea view at the Casita. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms and closets are of ample size and feel very upscale. The Casa has the benefit of the sea breeze coming through the windows facing the ocean, so it stays quite cool - we never had to turn on the AC. The Casita, being shielded by the Casa, is a little hotter, but the abundant fans and AC kept us cool.

The beach is great, the best in the area! We used the steps and the public dock to access the water. Great swimming, and clear water! Eldon and his helpers keep the beach and water very clean! We saw stingrays jumping and a dolphin(!) from the beach, as well as lots of cool birds (alas, no toucans).

Wolfgang was a great host, both before and during our vacation. He helped us book airfare through Maya Air and our golf cart from Carts Belize at a discount. His tour of San Pedro was invaluable. Afterwards, we were able to jump right in and go to the best places. He introduced us to Maria's fruit stand (home of THE juice), Neri's tacos (many mini tacos, we called them), the tortilla factory, the fish guy, Marin's grocery store, the coffee & rum house, the Blue Water Grill - great sushi on Tuesday - and the Pupuseria, home of THE lobster burrito (which is totally worth it)! Wolfgang, Eldon, and Mirta were always available to assist us and give us advice. We booked the all-day beach BBQ and snorkeling trip with Suya and had the best time - we'd highly recommend it! We also visited the Marco Gonzalez Maya site, which was excellent and a taste of the jungle on the Caye. We spent the rest of our time exploring town and relaxing on the beach, often with Cookie by our sides and Tiga watching us from above! We cannot wait to go back! Thank you Wolfgang, Eldon, Mirta, Tiga and Cookie!

“Honeymoon!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a great time staying with Wolfgang! We had a mishap with our luggage and getting there but Wolfgang was extremely helpful. The Casita was very nice and private- perfect for us and what we needed. The beach was wonderful and Cookie and Tiger were the best!. We'd definitely stay here again. Don't miss the tour with Wolfgand- very helpful. I'd also very much renting a golf cart. We used it multiple times daily. If you are going during the rainy season- don't forget your bug spray! Thanks for the wonderful vacation! We'd also recommend cave tubing and beach bbq while you are visiting!

“Our 30th Anniversary Trip”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My wife, Brenda, and I flew from Memphis to Belize City, then took a small plane to San Pedro, on Ambergris Caye. We rented a sporty looking gas powered golf cart from Carts Belize, loaded our luggage, and headed south for the short ride to Casita Buena Vista. When we arrived, we were cordially greeted by Wolfgang Wind, the owner. After settling into our beuatiful guest house, Wolfgang took us for a tour. We met local merchants, got the layout of the town, and ate soft tacos at a local vender down the street next to the airport. That evening, a festival was held in the town square, celebrating the last day of Lobsterfest. There was grilled lobster, lobster on a stick wrapped in bacon, lobster soup, and so many other choices I can't remember. What I do remember is that they were all delicious! During our 1 week stay, we ate more lobster than we have had in our entire life!
Our guest house was beautiful, with a large, shotgun style room that consisted of a living room with large, flat-screen tv and a kitchen. Through a door was our bedroom. The house was very spacious for 2 people. When you step out the door you are in a sandy yard, with chaise lounge chairs overlooking one of the most beautiful views of the Carribean Sea known to man, with palm trees swaying overhead. There was a two person kayak, an inflatable boat, and a grill available for our use.
Some of our favorite restaurants were:
Robins- serving Carribean jerk chicken
The Secret Hideaway- seafood with a romantic atmosphere
The Black Orchid- seafood
We took an awesome tour to the western part of Belize, where we went cave tubing at Cave Adventures, and toured the Xunantunich Mayan ruins.
The other tour we took was even more fun. The catamaran Lady Leslie picked us up at our pier at 7 AM, and took us, along with about 20 other guests to Hol Chan Reef, where we snorkeled with nurse sharks and sting rays. Then, after several glasses of rum punch, we arrived at Caye Caulker for lunch and sightseeing. We returned to our pier about 5 PM. It was a great day!
We enjoyed every second of our trip to Casita Buena Vista, and look forward to coming back!

“Second time here, won't be the last,”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

I stayed at the lovely Casita Buena Vista for the second time in May 2012. It was like coming home. I was greeted warmly by Wolfgang, Eldon and Merta, and or course, Cookie! The place, people, price... All can't be beat. You won't find a better value with as many amenities anywhere else on the island. Is it a 5-star luxury? No. But it's clean and comfortable. The kitchen is modern, the Internet access is always working, and the beach and fishing piers are steps away.

Suya tours is nearby and excellent for your water adventure needs. This last trip, i went on a fishing charter and had a blast. You'll be thankful for the Casita's close proximity to town (2.5 miles), where the markets have most anything you'll need. Be sure to stop by Maria's vegetable stand for fresh pineapples.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting Belize, and I'm looking forward to my 3rd trip next year.
