“Pretty good”

I liked the house itself but maybe not for the cost. Unfortunately some of the amenities were not available like it touted. After traveling for 2 weeks we were looking forward to being able to do some laundry but their washing machine was broken. Also the air conditioning wasn't working at all the first day or so by the end we got it going fairly well. Also has tall ceilings which is nice but the air conditioner has to work harder to cool things. Not the property owners fault but the power went out for over 6 hours 2 out of our 4 days there. This made things miserable in the evenings if you are staying in and not visiting town. The area was a quiet location and the porches were really nice to sit & relax. The kitchen was also what we were after in order to cook for ourselves. It was basic and fine.
So bottom line - if you are looking for must haves like A/C then maybe get a smaller place.

Management Response

We have two powerful a/c units cooling the house and they're serviced regularly. It's unusual that they didn't work or cool the house quickly. It may be that the remote control was malfunctioning. We'll look into this and be sure to show future guests how to use the system efficiently.
With regard to a washing machine, please note we do not include this amenity in our listing because of past experience with guests who brought loads of dirty laundry from previous travel. There are several economical laundry facilities and options on the island.

We enjoyed our stay in the house. Appreciated that there were maps, guidebooks, and board games stocked in the house. There was a hammock available to hang on the lanai. Wi-Fi, refrigerator, cable TV, all the amenities listed in the booking description were available.

The house is on the Back street towards the airport, so it was a 15 minute walk to get to the main center of the island, but it was a nice way to go slow and see the island. We didn't mind the daily stroll.

Do be aware that there are no "ceilings" above the rooms except the bathroom. This is so the air conditioning (one in the living area, one in the main bedroom) can circulate throughout the entire space. So downside was that sound travels and there wasn't privacy in that sense.

The property managers Levita and Amie were pleasant and easy to work with. Booking was straightforward with communication via email before and after we arrived. While we were on the island, we also were able to email them to request a taxi ride.

Overall a nice experience.

“The perfect place to "go slow"...”

Sapphire House was everything we hoped it would be for our first trip to Caye Caulker, Belize. Our family of 4 was perfectly comfortable in this great little beach getaway. Communication with both the owners and the property manager was fantastic - even with our last minute rental request. The water and airport were only a short walk and there's a quiet, cozy little neighborhood bar just a couple of doors down. Walking to town was a bit longer but very doable - if it's not too hot. The house was fully equipped so we could even stay in and make a meal if we chose to do so. Wi-Fi was a little sketchy but when on vacation - who needs to be on the computer anyway? It worked if we needed to check emails but not for much more than that.
Overall, Sapphire House was exactly what we needed for a relaxing family trip. We will definitely stay again the next time we need to "go slow" for a while on Caye Caulker.
