We found Picololo through Caye Caulker rental property listings, and were so glad we did! The lovely owners (Hilary and Pike) live right upstairs, so the property is very well cared-for. The location is quiet south end and felt very safe and private. The free bikes were great to use, and the apartment itself is roomy and extremely comfortable (especially the bed) and includes a full-size and well-stocked kitchen. We highly recommend Picololo to anyone traveling to Caye Caulker who wants access to the amenities and restaurants of the island, but wants to come "home" each night to a quiet apartment rather than a standard motel.
