This was the second time we stayed with Shirley and it was good to be back. It's very simple remote and cozy and that's what be love about it. Shirley is a wealth on knowledge if you want to learn more about the island. We stayed in the main cottage. While here is no dock you can use the dock...

The cabin was simple and clean. Shirley told us she would not go into our cabin but to let her know if we needed more towels or bedding. We had a problem with our toilet at one stage, but Shirley came to the cabin and sorted it out immediately. There was a fridge in the room, which was very useful...

Firstly, it's worth mentioning that we called 14 different hotels/hostels/guesthouses the day before we arrived on Caye Caulker, as it was so difficult to find anywhere with availability. In other words, make sure you call and book in advance, especially if you're on a budget. We were happy with our stay at Shirley's as she was a great host and...

As of 1/2011: This place is very simple. No tv, AC or Internet, but it's on a great, secluded part of the island. Open the windows and the ocean breeze comes flying in! These are basically cabins, 2 separate rooms sharing a bathroom. Some are singles. It's clean and Shirley keeps the place looking nice. It has a big open...

Shirley was helpful but not intrusive. The cabin was basic but clean. The grounds were the best. Shade and lounging chairs in the sand. Hammock on the porch was the best. Near the airport, but frequent small planes in and out were fun to watch. Shirley pointed out Good places to eat and even shared a book when I finished...

I recently stayed in Shirley's for 5 nights with my partner and a friend. We had both sides of the duplex cabin, each with private bath, hot water shower, refrigerator and coffee maker. The two of us had also stayed in the same cabin in 2004. Shirley's place was just as beautiful and relaxing as we remembered it. The cabins...

We stayed at Shirley's place for two nights. The rooms are clean, with hot water, a small fridge and a fan which we didn't even use. There are only a few cabins located at a good distance from each other. The common area has chairs under palm trees with great ocean views. If you are an early bird you can...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shirley's. It's located in a peaceful part of the island and is a fantastic place to chill out. Shirley was extremely kind and helpful. She gave fabulous advice about which trips to do and places to eat. The cabins were cozy and comfortable. We had our room made up every day and were given...

Our recent stay at Shirley's was wonderful. Having researched the island, we were able to walk directly to Shirley's right off the water taxi. It was a bit of a hike but worth it to us to be away from the village. The rooms are clean and basic. The hot water is well worth the wait. (It takes several minutes...

When we first arrived at Shirley's Guest House and saw the room, my friend and I were impressed with how quiet it was, the cleanliness of the rooms was acceptable, and we were so weary from checking out room after room that we decided it would be a relief to just pay and set down our bags so we could...
