“Great vacation and accommodations”
Reviewed 12 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at Playa Villa #2 for 8 nights over Thanksgiving. We had 12 people, 6 adults and 6 kids. The accommodations are exactly as shown/described. We were very impressed with the quality of the accomodations and enjoyed our stay very much. The villa has a pool in the front. The depth is quite shallow, mostly for wading, but we had several young children so it was perfect for us. We were able to use the pool to the adjacent villa for when we wanted to swim which was great, but may or may not always be available. Corrina, the property manager was great with coordinating our arrival/departure as well as assisting us with booking excursions. The private catamaran tour is a must. Dino, the caretaker was also a great help throughout our stay. He is onsite 24/7 and always accommodated our every need. He shuttled us to/from San Pedro as needed and was always available at a moments notice. The property is located on the lagoon side. We did not swim in the water itself, as it is quite rocky and shallow. We visited beaches in San Pedro as we desired. The only challenge to the location is access to restaurants and food. As mentioned, we ventured to San Pedro (2 minutes by boat) on many occasion to buy groceries and/or eat at a local restaurant. We also utilized the chef services recommended by Corrina. The name of the company is belizegrocery.com. They can provide grocery shopping as well as chef services. We utilized the latter. The food quality was excellent and well worth the price. Teresa and Kevin, the chefs, were great. If you are comfortable with being somewhat removed, this is a great villa. There was really no negatives to our trip. We had an excellent vacation and hope to visit again some day.

“incredible vacation experience for 5-8 people at a surprisingly accessible price point for such a luxurious villa!”

Villa #2 was spacious, modern, and immaculately clean place that comfortably accommodated 8 adults (4 couples) on our weeklong family vacation. We had a great week here and would highly recommend it to other groups of 5-8 people. We really enjoyed the quiet seclusion from the hustle of San Pedro, but also enjoyed being just a 5 minute boat ride (included) away from San Pedro. Corinna helped us figure out all the details beforehand and arranged all our excursions for us and made helpful suggestions for where to go and what to do, including: reef fishing, got massages at the Villa, hired an excellent chef to cook 3 meals for us 1 day (ended up being $45 per person), explored Ambergris Caye by golf cart, hired a boat to take us to Caye Caulker and Hol Chan for snorkeling, and went cave tubing and zip lining on our last day. All were great experiences!

Corinna kindly provided us with a crib for my 9 month old baby (at no additional cost). Dino (on site grounds keeper) kindly helped us with our daily questions and kept the place clean and even did a great job of grilling up our fish dinner! Also there was 24/7 on site security included. Also a mobile phone was provided which was very convenient. We also appreciated the borrowable kayaks, norkels, goggles, and fins.

Downsides:
The 4th bedroom doesn't have AC (but it does have a ceiling fan). Three of the 4 bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom.
The wifi was solid, but not great for streaming HD video (but Corrina mentioned that she intends to upgrade to a faster connection).

Overall I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an incredible vacation experience for 5-8 people at a surprisingly accessible price point for such a luxurious villa!

“Wonderful villa for large group!”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Corrina was a fantastic host, surpassing our expectations with her concierge services as well. The villa was as pictured, clean and spacious for our group of eight. Dino, the caretaker on site and boat captain, was ever available for boat rides into town, for last minute supplies and even for cleaning the fish we caught. Our family vacation to celebrate my dad's birthday was smooth and stress free due to all of Corrina's help in planning excursions including reef fishing and a private catamaran for snorkeling and sunset ceviches. We enjoyed cooking large meals for the whole group in the kitchen, as well as eating terrific meals by chef Theressa.

“Cliche-BEST VACATION EVER!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our concierge, Corrina provided outstanding service from booking the ferry to the Tropic Air flights to greeting us, arranging for golf cards, having dinner with us on night one so we wouldn't have to navigate a strange place. Arranged for kitchen to be stocked. Arrange for Chef Kevin, in home spa treatments, snorkel and scuba reservations, took us to secret beach, navigated lost golf cart key, provided and topped of a fully functioning local phone which proved to be invaluable. I probably should have asked for two phones since we needed them a few times during the week because of different dive times, etc. We stayed in Playa Villa West which was delightful because I swim and the lap pool was a bonus! The cleaning service every other day and laundry by Jessica meant the world to me because on vacation I don't want to have to cook, shop or clean. The functionality of the a/c, bbq, fans, all top notch. Dino our boat Captain went above and beyond, cleaning porch daily, keeping bbq clean, transporting us at a moment's notice, taking my adult children into town and making sure they arrived safely home, showed us the fish market, took my husband for a haircut, filled in with missing groceries, made sure house was locked when we all left together. Lit a bonfire for us on our last night, and the Tiki torches. I'm sure I'm leaving details out but I absolutely would return and re-rent. If you're interested you'd better reserve early as this place is a HOT RENTAL>
