“Fantastic House”

9 of us stayed in this house last summer and it was fantastic. The house is clean and spacious. All the rooms have their own AC. The 3 suites on the bottom floor are same level as the pool which sits directly on the beach. Alfred and his wife do a great job tending to any of your needs. She will cook for you every night if you wish or just pick a night or two. Make sure to get golf carts so you can head into town and to also look around the island some.

“Loved BajaMar”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We rely heavily on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed! This was the most relaxing vacation I can remember! House was beautiful and well cared for, but Alfred & Dianne made our vacation! Tony was great to provide us with a wealth of information prior to our departure making traveling more relaxing. He was always prompt in responding and making great recommendations from places to eat, things to do, and how to get from Belize City to the house. It is quite a distance, but well worth the journey to paradise. We chose to take a boat and would probably travel that way again. It was windy & a little rough going out but return trip was smooth in comparison. We saw dolphins and manatees and being picked up at the airport and taken to BajaMar dock made the 90 min boat ride worth it. Regardless of how you get to BajaMar, I think it is well worth the extra journey! I think this was the prettiest part of Belize. We arranged for Dianne to prepare our welcome dinner and have groceries in the house upon our arrival. Dianne's cooking is amazing and we enjoyed it most evenings. I highly recommend you have her cook, especially your first night, as well as have her stock some food and snacks for your arrival. Sun or shade, there was always places to gather and enjoy the view. There are several porches and outdoor areas with seating and big tables. The pool was very relaxing and cool drinks were never far away with the outdoor refrigerators. Christian keeps the beach raked each morning and John is close by and quite helpful as well. The kayaks were a fun addition to take out for snorkeling. Alfred arranged for us to take a private snorkeling trip and we did that twice, it was so much fun. Our group was 6 adults for 8 nights and we loved everything about our trip. While at BajaMar we agreed to make it an annual trip. We have 9-10 adults already committed for next year. Just in case our group grows too big, Alfred can help arrange additional housing close by. Baja Mar was the best vacation house we have rented and the water in Belize is beautiful. Although most of our guests can dive, the water is shallow and snorkeling was amazing. We didn't feel like we missed out on anything by not diving. Alfred, Dianne, and Po (the dog) were like family by the time we left. Can't wait for next year and hoping we can stay for 10 days! I highly recommend BajaMar!

“Amazing beach home!”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Pictures do not do this property justice! Everything is well maintained and up to date. All bedrooms have king beds that can be split into two twins. There are three identical bedrooms downstairs facing the pool & beach with their own baths and kitchenettes. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, one with its own bath facing the pool and beach, while the other uses the living room bath and faces the back balcony. All bedrooms are spacious, air-conditioned and have sliding doors that open to large covered patios or balconies. The well-equipped kitchen and indoor living space are on the upper floor, as is the main dining area, which is on the rear facing balcony that also has a wet bar with refrigerator. There are large covered patios on both floors, lots of eating and relaxing space, including a palapa with adjacent wet bar and refrigerator at the front of the house across from the very clean and well maintained infinity-edge pool. There are staircases at the front and back of the house, neither of which are protected from rain.
The view from the house looking toward the beach screams "here we are in the Carribean", as you look past the thatch-roofed palapa on the left, the infinity edge pool on the right over the white sand, past the picture-perfect coconut palms and the house's dock to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Waves break about a half mile off the beach on the barrier reef that offers some of the most amazing snorkeling and diving in the world.
The attendants for this property, Alfred, Diannie, Christian and John are what make this property special. They are always available and attentive, but never in the way, living in a separate house on the back of the property. Alfred is well connected on the island and can make any and all arrangements you may need, including, but not limited to transportation, dinner reservations, excursions, supplies and groceries. Diannie offers excellent cooked meals (at additional cost). We found her meals to be excellent and a very good value. We typically had her cook one meal a day, usually the evening meal, while making our own breakfasts and lunches many times with leftovers from her meals.
If you have any concern, be sure to mention it to Alfred, as he will most likely resolve it with a smile.
Towels and linens were provided and were cleaned and exchanged during our stay.
Drinking water is provided in 5 gallon containers, although if you are like us, you will need more than provided and simply need to ask Alfred (at additional cost).
The owner, Tony was very good to deal with and always prompt and informative with his communication, which was entirely by email for us.
There are a few nice restaurants within walking distance and a few more that will pick you up by boat at the house's dock and bring you back after dinner. Alfred can make recommendations and reservations if you wish.
Every day the beach and property was raked and cleaned. Note that the neighboring beaches are not all as well maintained, with washed-up sea grass and trash making water shoes or sandals recommended for walks on the beach.
The property is fairly well secluded, although expect occasional walkers and vendors along the beach. The beach vendors were always polite, offering local crafts, as well as food items including tamales and burritos. If you aren't interested, just a wave and a "no thank you" will be returned by a smile and a wave as they continue down the beach.
Transportation on Ambergris Caye is primarily by boat or golf cart. While rental golf carts are available, we got around just fine by walklng or by boat. San Pedro is the closest town and is about a 30 minute golf-cart ride away.
We traveled to the property by flying into Belize City and chartering Nautilus Express Water Taxi (also reviewed on Trip Advisor) for round trip transportation from Belize City airport directly to the house's dock. Other transportation options are by small plane or public water transfer into San Pedro, both of which will require additional travel arrangements (water taxi or golf cart rental) to get to and from San Pedro and this property.
Some snorkeling equipment and kayaks are available on property, although not enough to serve 10 people if the house is full. Alfred can make arrangements for extra equipment if desired.
Expect to go through quite a bit of cash (US or Belize dollars), as all payments to Alfred and Diannie, as well as many local vendors are cash. ATM's are available in San Pedro when you run low. Nicer restaurants and some tour operators accept credit cards.
