“Week with friends”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

people found this review helpful

My husband and I shared the villa with 4 other friends for a week in March2016. With that many roommates, the house was quite affordable. Everything we needed was there and groceries were just steps away. There were also plenty of food and beverage options within walking distance along the beach. We did rent carts for the week so traveled about the island at our leisure, and I would recommend others get carts as well because you are quite a ways from town. We had wonderful neighbors in other Caye Villas while there, and the pool was a great hangout for us since it was SO windy that fishing and diving trips were getting canceled during our stay. I would absolutely recommend this villa for a great experience on Ambergris Caye.

“Great villa!”

We stayed at this villa at the end of Feb 2016 and had a wonderful time. Everyone from the person who arranged our transportation to the groundskeeper were very friendly and helpful! The villa itself was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. We stayed with a group of 8 and even though there are only three bedrooms, there is a pull out couch in the upstairs living room so everyone had their own space and bathrooms! The pool was spotless and we barely ever saw any other groups using it so it is almost as if we had it to ourselves! The beach right in front of the property is wonderful as well. The water is very shallow but it made it easy to cool off. Sea kayaks are also included in the rental and there is reef you can get to if you paddle about 10 minutes out in front of the villa and tie onto a buoy. There was some neat snorkelling at that site! The villa is quite far from San Pedro itself but there is water taxi service to get you into town if you want. There is a small little grocery store right behind the property which was extremely convenient so we never had any issues with groceries. There are also a handful of restaurants within walking distance along the beach which was also a plus! Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this villa!

“Awesome”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We loved the location...a little ways out of San Pedro to be quiet, but close enough to go into town for dinner. Beachfront villa was well appointed and had all the essentials...easy access to the ocean, good Internet and a pool.
You'll need to get some golf carts to get between Caye Villas and San Pedro, but driving them is part of the fun. The villas are approx 20-mins by golf cart from San Pedro, so access to ocean activities is pretty easy.
Everything was well organized, from the pickup at the Belize Express water taxi to being dropped off at the airport upon departure.
The area in the immediate vicinity of the villas was very well maintained but we noticed trash in the streets in downtown San Pedro.

“Great home and value”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The home is very well maintained and the grounds are immaculate. Be aware the beach is not ideal for relaxing or swimming, but the beautiful pool makes up for that! Our trip in October was during the rainy season and the mosquitos really made it difficult to be outside after dusk. I would recommend renting a golf cart because the house is a bit far from restaurants and downtown. All in all, the house is great and the pool was amazing.

“Truly and easily one of the best places to stay on the island!”

My wife and I (and multiple groups of friends) have been coming down to Ambergris Caye since 2007, and we have been lucky enough to stay at Calm Caye Villa about 10 out of the 12 trips. As all others have said, the house is very spacious and comfortable, and very well kept. The grounds are some of the most beautiful anywhere on the island, as David (caretaker) and his team have worked very hard with the owners to create a wonderfully tropical paradise. The location is perfect if you really want to feel like you are off the beaten path and in a private and secluded spot, but also be close enough to both town and some of the best bars/restaurants that are further north. With Mata Grande Grocery and Aurora's Grill (simple, but amazing local food) right behind the property; Sundiver Resort and Bar about 200 feet away; and Rojo Beach Bar & Grill (our favorite place, say hello to FIN for us!) and Mata Chica Resort/Bar about 5-10 minutes away by foot or cart - it's easy to keep your appetite and thirst under control with very little effort. And you'll be doing so with some of the best views of the sea and reef right in front of you.

The pool is amazing and always clean. The private guard is always there to keep an eye on things (we've never had a single concern or issue, but it's great to know someone is looking out for you). Brittany and Shane at Caye Mgmt are incredibly helpful and fun. The housekeepers are very friendly and keep everything looking great around the house. There isn't a single thing I can think of that isn't pretty perfect. Which is why we keep going back to Calm Caye Villa!

You can kayak out to the reef from the villa and see some amazing sea life while snorkeling. You can also easily book tours/day trips of any kind, and with Sundiver pier being one house away, your pick-up and drop-off is about as painless as it gets.

This place is heaven on earth, and the local neighborhood is made up of incredibly friendly people. You cannot go wrong if you stay at this house.

Liked best: The privacy and grounds are amazing, but you're still close enough to town (4.5 miles), and walking distance to some of the best food and drink on the island up the beach.
Liked least: The only thing i can think of is maybe adding a few more pool chairs.
