What a view is a perfect description for this wonderful place. Everything was an A+ Amenities A+, Staff A+ and Food A+. This place has everything you possibly need when renting a private home for the week, you never have to leave. We had 5 couples that stayed for the week. This place offered a perfect balance of time for everyone we had privacy, entertainment & relaxation whenever needed.
The home is absolutely gorgeous! Joanne, the property manager and the entire staff were fantastic! BUT, I must give a huge shout out to Sylvia, the personal Chef.
It was the first time I saw my daughter and her friend, sit at the dinner table before anyone else, in anticipation of that night's meal. My daughter asked if we could build a home on our property and take Sylvia home with us....
The one night we went out for dinner, paled in comparison to any meal that Sylvia had cooked for us. Sylvia is a real treasure, and her assistant Claudia was very sweet and and her smile contagious. Sylvia made the trip beyond wonderful, and we are grateful she was part of our vacation!!
There is very little I can add to all the reviews that has not been written. The pictures and descriptions do not compare to being there. We were there for a week and never went out to dinner because the food, ambiance and as always the view, were so good.
The house seems too nice for a rental home. The attention to details were amazing. I do not want to give them out because discovering them just makes this rental house more unbelievable. 1 hint, check out the place setting for dinner. There was a different one every night including some fine china.
I do need to give Sylvia an extra mention. One of the people in our group had some very challenging dietary restrictions. She not only met the restrictions, but it was some of the best food this person was ever served.
This house is almost a destination to itself. It is like going to your own private extra high end resort. We cannot wait to return.

Wow! Wataview is an amazing place for a group of friends or a family vacation. The photographs are beautiful, but the property is even more gorgeous in real life. We hosted a group of 10 friends for a celebration weekend at Wataview. Many of us are world travelers and we all have high standards. Wataview not only met, but exceeded our expectations. The property manager is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. The house includes maid service so your rooms will be cleaned daily. There is a chef and assistant who can prepare your meals (you pay for provisioning depending on the foods you select). Sylvia is an outstanding chef. We had some dietary restrictions and she was able to make amazing meals for us. The manager will help you with logistics such as transportation from Belize to Amergris Caye if needed. She also helped us rent golf carts which were delivered by a cart company on the day of our arrival so we could explore the island. There is a private dock which is very convenient. If you want to arrange for a group diving/snorkeling trip, many dive companies will just pick up at the Wataview dock. Talk about convenient. I can't think of one thing that wasn't perfect about our stay at Wataview. All of our friends are still raving about it months after our trip, so I definitely needed to come back and provide a review.
My husband and I traveled to Wataview in San Pedro, Belize with our 4 sons, ages 15 - 21 years. We both were a little skeptical because we are accustomed to large 5 star all inclusive resorts, but we were beyond very impressed with the beautiful home and the lovely staff. Sylvia, the chef, made us feast upon feast, the food was amazing! She and her helper Claudia cooked the entire day of Thanksgiving to prepare us the most wonderful authentic Thanksgiving dinner. Edwin and his wife took care of the entire house inside and out! The grounds were immaculate and our every need or want wast attended to. The private dock allowed the boat to pick up my husband and boys for their daily dives which were phenomenal! This along with our golf cart rentals, and hopper flights to/from the international airport were all arranged by Joanne. Even though we rented the golf carts to tour about we hardly used them because we were so utterly blissfully content right at Wataview. We were totally spoiled the entire week by the most amazing staff! My only complaint is returning back to reality has been very difficult after experiencing a slice of paradise!

My husband and I decided the wanted to celebrate 50 years of marriage with our two children, their spouses and our four grandchildren, ages 6-17. There could have been no better place on earth to fulfill this dream than our week at Wataview. The house, grounds, pool, tennis court, beach and other amenities are so worth the cost. Having Sylvia prepare great breakfasts and dinners every day before and after our snorkeling, fishing, caving, etc. made the week a real vacation without the hassle of restaurants for our varied ages. Joanne is so gracious, answering all our questions promptly. Extras such as a cell phone to take to town to call the taxi were so thoughtful. We just had the best week ever making memories for years to come.

If you want to save time and not read this, just know this is the most beautiful, modern, and well staffed home to rent in all of Belize. It is 100% worth the money.
I rented this home for my family for a week in June. I originally was not going to spend this kind of money, but i couldn't be happier i did. Chef Sylvia was amazing. Breakfast and dinner every day. I made it a point not to ask what was for dinner every night, and the surprise was fun. Food was AMAZING. Everything in the house is modern, even though you are on a Central American island. Full house iPad ready audio, including outside, wifi, beautiful crystal and china and private tennis court. The staff asked constantly if we needed anything. Went diving and fishing several days. Boat picks you up at your private dock. I rented 2 golf carts. Could have made it with one 6 seater. Bedrooms and bathrooms are 5 star hotel quality. Our party was 10 people. The 5th bedroom is the only drawback because they are single beds…but perfect for kids. Weather in june was perfect. Some rain to cool you off, but 90% sun. Bottom line…come here for 7 days and have the most care free stressless vacation of your life. The staff truly wants to help. Not just lip service. Everyone speaks perfect english, and they know everything on the island-spa, fishing, diving. We did not make one reservation for dinner outside the house..why would we? Sylvia is probably the best Chef on the island! How about our last night we were treated to a massive sea turtle laying her eggs at the beach entrance to the home. After she layer her eggs, we roped off the area so no one could bother the nest. It was amazing! What an ending to an incredible 7 nights. Thank you Joanne for the memories you provided for my family. Cant wait to come back!!
