One of the best vacations we've ever had. Belize was wonderful but this house was even better. We had our own deck into the ocean and paddle boards, kayaks and snorkeling gear to use. So fun. The house was clean with plenty of room. We actually never cooked there, not because the kitchen wasn't great but because just down the beach was one of the best most affordable restaurants I've ever been too. We just ate there everyday. Perfection.
Casa Beya was great. Read MUST at end. Caretakers Martin & Diana were willing to help with anything (phone calls, shopping, cleaning, cooking). Manager Midge emailed us a shopping list so we could stock the refrigerator. Kayaks, paddle boards and bikes! Decks, beach, hammocks & pier - great for lounging. The Maya Beach Bistro, just down the beach had the best food on the Peninsula,:coffee, breakfast, lunch & dinner, and you can use their pool. Rumfish in town was also a good place to eat. For lunch and night life, Tispy Tuna and Barefoot bars. You do need a car to get around, not a golf cart. There was a grocery store nearby but the best fruit stands (selection) are in Placencia near Rumfish. If you want fresh conch, fish, lobster, head to the docks about 3:00. There is a great locally made jewelry store across from Rumfish. Recommend hiking Antelope falls in Bocawina Rainforest. We rented a car from Barefoot rentals, which was a junker and eventually broke down the day before we left but they were nice enough to give us a ride to the airport for our flight and not charge us for not refueling the tank. If you need a large car for many passengers, you may want to rent in Belize City. We needed a car for 7 and Barefoot was the only one who could provide one. If you are interested in scuba diving, I recommend you say in San Pedro on Ambergris Cay instead. The boat ride to the best diving areas off Placencia are 1 hour and brutal (the boat driver goes full ahead and you are pounding the waves). Diving/snorkeling the "inner reefs" is not worth the price. Don't sign up for a manatee tour unless it's in the lagoon. Seagrape house can be rental with Casa Beya for a larger group. It has larger rooms, a screen porch and ping pong table. You MUST take precautions against the sand fleas. I took vitamin B12 staring a week before the trip and was slightly bitten. The others in my group did not take it and WERE bitten and suffered. Regular bug spray does not work. Coconut oil does. Read online for what else works. DO NOT try to pick up the fruit juicer with it's top on. It comes off and the container falls and you spill all the juice! The kitchen was wonderfully stocked. I'm a private Chef so that is a great compliment! If you are into cooking, bring your own chef's knife. We would recommend this place and stay their again. Enjoy!
The Casa Beya was truly a tropical Paradise! Gorgeous home with a perfect location to enjoy the beauty of the Carribean and explore the amazing country of Belize. My family of 7 (including my 90 year old Mother) enjoyed every minute of our comfortable, relaxing, and adventurous vacation. We would love to return to Belize and the Casa Beya!!
Pinch me!!! This vaction was perfect on every level!! If you have dreamt of crystal clear calm waters, views for days, family spot.... I HIGHLY recommend Casa Beya!
Myself- Megan (32), my husband- CURTIS (36), our daughter- Addison (8), and Son- William.... who celebrated his 3rd birthday while in Belize.... had the most amazing time EVER!!
Martin and Diana- We loved them!! They helped beyond belief!! Told us local flavor.... local villages to visit.... recommended the most amazing tour at IXCACOA - chocolate WILL save the rainforest!!
Recommended an amazing local spice farm.
I recommend renting an SUV.... main roads are great in Belize and can get you to amazing remote locations.... waterfalls etc!
The house had everything this momma needed to live and care for my family for 7 days.
We loved SUP boarding! My 8 year old and I swam with sharks, sea turtles, & sting ray!
Please go to this beautiful house! You WONT regret it ☺️
