“Great home and value”
Reviewed December 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The home is very well maintained and the grounds are immaculate. Be aware the beach is not ideal for relaxing or swimming, but the beautiful pool makes up for that! Our trip in October was during the rainy season and the mosquitos really made it difficult to be outside after dusk. I would recommend renting a golf cart because the house is a bit far from restaurants and downtown. All in all, the house is great and the pool was amazing.

“Truly and easily one of the best places to stay on the island!”

My wife and I (and multiple groups of friends) have been coming down to Ambergris Caye since 2007, and we have been lucky enough to stay at Calm Caye Villa about 10 out of the 12 trips. As all others have said, the house is very spacious and comfortable, and very well kept. The grounds are some of the most beautiful anywhere on the island, as David (caretaker) and his team have worked very hard with the owners to create a wonderfully tropical paradise. The location is perfect if you really want to feel like you are off the beaten path and in a private and secluded spot, but also be close enough to both town and some of the best bars/restaurants that are further north. With Mata Grande Grocery and Aurora's Grill (simple, but amazing local food) right behind the property; Sundiver Resort and Bar about 200 feet away; and Rojo Beach Bar & Grill (our favorite place, say hello to FIN for us!) and Mata Chica Resort/Bar about 5-10 minutes away by foot or cart - it's easy to keep your appetite and thirst under control with very little effort. And you'll be doing so with some of the best views of the sea and reef right in front of you.

The pool is amazing and always clean. The private guard is always there to keep an eye on things (we've never had a single concern or issue, but it's great to know someone is looking out for you). Brittany and Shane at Caye Mgmt are incredibly helpful and fun. The housekeepers are very friendly and keep everything looking great around the house. There isn't a single thing I can think of that isn't pretty perfect. Which is why we keep going back to Calm Caye Villa!

You can kayak out to the reef from the villa and see some amazing sea life while snorkeling. You can also easily book tours/day trips of any kind, and with Sundiver pier being one house away, your pick-up and drop-off is about as painless as it gets.

This place is heaven on earth, and the local neighborhood is made up of incredibly friendly people. You cannot go wrong if you stay at this house.

Liked best: The privacy and grounds are amazing, but you're still close enough to town (4.5 miles), and walking distance to some of the best food and drink on the island up the beach.
Liked least: The only thing i can think of is maybe adding a few more pool chairs.

“The Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Calm Caye Villa was the perfect getaway on Ambergris Caye. My husband and I vacationed with another couple for a week and it was the most relaxing trip we've ever had. The house has three bedrooms and each has it's own bathroom so it's perfect for multiple couples or a family. The kitchen is big and the market across the street is so convenient for buying everything you need to make meals and drinks. OR you can head off to any number of restaurants close by for your meals. Often we made dinner and sat on the porch overlooking the ocean and pool - it was amazing. The property caretaker was always available to help us with directions, call the water taxi, and find provisions for the house. The villa itself is located a ways north of downtown San Pedro so you'll need a golf cart if you're going to leave the property for meals and sightseeing. The road is bumpy but makes for a fun adventure and locals told us it will be paved in the next year or two.

My advice - book your Brazilian vacation here and make it at least a week - even that will feel too short!

“Beautiful spacious house right on the beach!!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My husband and I stayed here with another couple and we had the best time! The house is gorgeous, spacious and equipped with everything we needed. The house was huge, which gave us plenty of privacy but also had great common spaces where we could hang out together - including a porch looking out over the ocean with a hammock! There is a caretaker (David) who lives in a separate building on site who is so kind and helpful. He came right over whenever we had questions and even let us borrow his cooler for a few days when we went out adventuring. Brittany who works at Belize Management was also incredibly helpful and was so responsive over email in advance of our trip. She helped us coordinate our arrival (we were picked up at the airport and taken to the house in a water taxi for free!) and all our
