Belize3:Barbara's Beach House

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Avenida Mangle Caye Caulker, Caye Caulker 00000 Belize

Completed in June of 2014 Barbara's Beach House represents the second phase of building that also makes up Laura's Lookout and Sandy's Secret and the Palmetto Garden Cottage. Located at the West End of our private pool, Barbara's is a three bedroom house, situated perfectly to ensure that you can enjoy the best that our quiet secluded lot has to offer while still having easy access to the airstrip or the main town of Caye Caulker which is just a 5-10 minute bike ride or a 10-15 minute walk away. The interior of Barbara's has a traditional island feel, built throughout with the beautiful hardwoods that Belize is known for. Floors, ceiling and furniture all reflect this craftsmanship, a perfect compliment to the palm trees and sun outside your door. The layout works for either a family or a group of friends and has two bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath downstairs; a more private Master Suite upstairs, with two twin beds that convert into a king if you prefer, again with its own full bath. All beds have pillow top mattress pads and super comfy the sheets are 400 thread count, and the towels and beach towels are plentiful, thick and lush. If needed, there are additional mattresses for those who would prefer not to share beds. Each room has its own air conditioner, complete with a remote control. The living area features an open floor plan that includes a modern kitchen, supplied with any appliance you may need, there is washing machine and clothesline and access to a dryer if the weather is not cooperating. The dining area and lounge area has a flat screen TV, movie library, wi-fi and games. As you exit the house, passing by the front deck that features ocean views and both hammocks and chairs to relax in, you go down a few short steps, running right into the pool. Available only to our guests. There are a variety of floating devices for you to relax on and the pool is sunken into a wooden deck that includes original palm trees to the lot and multiple chaises for sunbathing. Turning right, away from the house, you encounter our beach area that juts out into the sea. Usable as either a volleyball court or relaxing area to catch the sun, it continues straight on into our newly renovated 300 foot dock. With three separate entrances to the water below, there is room to dock a boat (useful for snorkeling trips or an adventure to the mainland of Belize), 6 pods extending outward for more room and a palapa at the end of the dock if you require shade. You would be hard pressed to find a better place on the island to relax or watch the sunrise over the world famous reef, barely a mile away!! Barbara's, as well as all our properties, was built with safety in mind. Featuring protection on all first floor windows, there is only one entrance to the house, equipped with an alarm. In addition, we have an on-site 24 hour security guard. Our office is open every day from 9:00am until 5:00pm, so there is always someone to help with whatever you may need. Bikes are available to rent at us $5.00 per bike, per day.

    Sarah M from Glasgow, Lanarkshire recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed here for a week and loved it. Comfortable house, well equipped, with tv, DVDs, board games and wifi. We appreciated pool towels being supplied. All the staff we dealt with (cleaners, maintenance and management staff) were friendly and helpful. We were met at the water taxi on arrival and transported by golf cart with all our luggage. I enjoyed lying on the sun loungers at the end of the jetty every afternoon. My kids loved the pool. Caye Caulker is a fantastic holiday destination.

    This house is obsoletely beautiful. 3 bedrooms 2 baths. You have a pool to cool off or private dock into the ocean. This was our 1st VRBO experience and we couldn't have been more pleased. If you plan a trip to Belize/Caye Caulker I highly recommend this house. My family and I will be coming back. The locals on the island are very friendly to vacationers. We always felt very safe. if you have any questions feel free to contact me at

    Gregg M from New Orleans, LA recommends this vacation rental

    We truly enjoyed our stay at Barbaras beach house. The deck was perfect for lounging, especially with the hammocks. The house was clean and exactly as described. I recommend renting the bicycles they offer. Michael and Cici were very nice and great hosts. If you're traveling during the high season I recommend getting your recommendations from Michael or Cici, and booking prior to your arrival.

    We will definitely be returning to Barbaras beach house!

    This was our second time staying at this property. We stayed for a month this time. The house is convenient, safe and comfortable. We could not have wanted anything more. Cece was incredible! She checked on us daily, answered our questions and took care of all our needs. Needless to say we did not want to leave. However, we all agreed we will be back.

    Galen T from Windsor, Colorado recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great trip. Cici was most helpful and checked in with us a couple times to see how we were doing. We did not see any recycling so left our bottles on the kitchen counter. We advise you to take Nick (Jr.) off the taxi phone list as he was very inebriated when he took our family of 6 (including our 5 year old granddaughter)for dinner. We were quite fearful he might have an accident.

    CHERRI M from CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA recommends this vacation rental

    I came to Barbara's Beach House with 5 other ladies. We are all 55+ years old but only 25 at heart! This home was perfect for us! They left us a cell phone and charger at the house so we could easily contact Michael, Cici, or our tour organizers. We rented golf carts (which Michael set up for us in advance) and were able to get anywhere we wanted to be in no time flat. We indulged in the street food, ate a several of the fantastic island restaurants and cooked a little ourselves. (We bought one-pound lobsters right off the dock from the guy who caught them for $6 US each!) The private pier allowed us to fish, go hand-line crabbing and lie out in the chaise lounge chairs to enjoy the peacefulness of the Caribbean. Anytime the humidity started to get to us we could duck inside to the air conditioned house and cool off before heading out on another adventure. If you have questions, you can contact me through my travel website at www dot bucketlisttc dot com. I HIGHLY recommend Barbara's Beach House!

    a guest from Missouri City, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    Barbara's beach house was absolutely perfect for a resort-like feel without the crowds and price tag.

    First, AIR CONDITIONING. Each of the 3 bedrooms, including the main living area, come with remote controlled, wall-mounted AC units. This amenity in itself should sway you to book here. We researched other options in Belize City and Caye Caulker to find homes equipped with AC to be a scarcity.

    Second, booking at Barbara's Beach House allows you access to Michael, the property manager, who will go the extra mile to book you a golfcart taxi, offer dining/excursion recommendations, and assist with bike rentals.

    We LOVED cycling around the city, but food, the ferry, and tourism companies are within a 15-20 minute walk's distance.

    Everything in the house is as pictured. I'd 100% stay at Barbara's Beach House again.

    Barbara's Beach House is beautiful inside and out. My family enjoyed every minute of it. Having a pool was a plus for the kids. Even though hurricane Earl came right in the middle of our vacation we were safe at our location. Mike and Cece were awesome. It would be great if courtesy transportation to and from location be included in the accommodation. The location is a distance from the Main Street bicycles should be considered and available for rental. Consider purchasing groceries there is a fully equipped kitchen. It was an experience of a lifetime. Not many can say they experienced a hurricane and was not bothered one bit.

    We had a great time staying at this beach house! Really easy to get to everything on our bikes. Sure Caye Caulker doesn't have much for beach access but this house made up for it with its great dock. The house was very comfortable for 6 adults. The only negative was the mesquites were terrible so don't forget your bug spray.

    Christi G from Dallas, Tx. recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Barbara's Beach House for 8 days and enjoyed it very much. The house is new and well built. Very comfortable for six people. The pool is very nice and the proximity to the ocean and private dock/pier is also very nice. Michael, the property manager, took excellent care of us from our arrival and throughout our stay. We had a small problem with the main air conditioning, but it was quickly remedied without much fuss. Location relative to town is very close (the island is tiny) and only a short walk, bike or golf cart ride to restaurants, groceries, etc. We will definitely return to this house and highly recommend the property to others.

    My two pieces of constructive feedback would be to equip the kitchen with a slightly more robust set of cooking equipment. Second, it would be smart to set up a rinse station for sandy feet and sandals at the steps leading up to the pool, which would greatly reduce tracking sand onto the deck, porch, pool and into the house.

    Everything at the house was just as i saw on the pictures, nothing hidden. everything was clean. The manager Michael was sooooo nice! I loved the fact there was a cellphone to call the taxi. The AC on the living room didn't worked for 2 days but as soon as it was monday they came to fix it, very effective. We loved everything about the house and the manager, We will surely recommend a lot of people and know I have the security to rent on the other rentals in Vail because my experience here was perfect. the process for booking and the fast communication between me and the owner was great. The manager at Belice was very fast at replying emails too! He had a taxi for me when we arrived. Everything was wonderful!

    Sherry H from Independence, MO recommends this vacation rental

    There were 9 in our group and we rented Laura's Lookout and Barbara's Beach House. They were perfect and beautiful homes. The pool was a great bonus for everyone to rinse off or just hang out together outside. Michael was absolutely wonderful - very responsive for anything we needed. Water jugs replaced, golf cart rental contacts - you name it he could help. Too bad they aren't available for long term because we would stay for months! The only negative was Shirley (80 something lady next door) - to be fair there is a note from the home owner warning about her - but, we were in the pool in daylight hours (first time 10:30 AM) and she came over twice to tell us to keep it down. We had two small children and a large group - no blaring music or anything - just normal conversation. She is harmless but cranky. The house though has so many amenities and is beautiful.

    Alan M from Sun Prairie, WI recommends this vacation rental

    Barbara's Beach House lived up to our expectations. It is a new property and was an extremely comfortable base for our family group of six. It has a private 4ft deep pool shared with the adjacent house and a share of a private dock with adjacent properties which were great the times we just wanted to hang out. The caretaker, Michael Joseph, is very courteous and helped promptly whenever we needed help or advice. The house is on the east coast of the island & so really benefits on hot days from the almost constant onshore breeze. The house is a good ten minute walk (use the coast path for the breeze!) from the main part of town (restaurants/bars – try Belizean food like Fried Jack (from the House of Jacks), or stew chicken, rice and beans at The Spot; also try the products at the local bakery next to the bank; try Belikin beer and rum punches) and another ten minutes from the Split, but bike hire, golf cart rental or use of golf cart taxis (US$2.5 per person) are options if you don’t want to walk. We either walked or used taxis. We often hung out and snorkeled at the Split (lots of wonderful fish to see for free) but also took a couple of wonderful snorkeling trips with Carlos Arce and his team at Hicaco Tours. In addition we took an excellent tour of the Mayan site at Altun-ha on the mainland with Allen Dawson of Experience Belize Tours. Our only minor complaint was that three new buildings are under construction immediately to the side and the rear of the house and this caused an amount of noise during the day (work day was 8am to 5pm including weekends). But as no heavy machinery was involved and we were out of the house for most of those hours, we could tolerate this.
    Caye Caulker’s motto is “Go Slow” and anyone wanting a quiet relaxing vacation could do an awful lot worse that to rent this great vacation house on the wonderful island of Caye Caulker.

    Jacqueline B from Shelby, NC recommends this vacation rental

    To Michael,
    We enjoyed the stay at the pink house. We did notice the following that you may want to address. The washing machine has a balance problem- it vibrates the whole house and walks all over, the igniter for the oven did not work, two men slept on sofa cushions because they thought the beds were too hard.
    It is a very pretty house. The pool is great. There was an iguana that is pink (it maybe got into the pink paint), it was very cute. We could not call out on the local phone, but we had another phone we could use so it was not a problem. I suggest having plastic cups as an option, you don't want guests to take glass to the pool. We really did like the house and I only mention these details because I doubt very many people have had a chance to stay in this new house since the iguana still wears the pink paint!!! jacqueline

    • Manager Responded on 11/26/2014

      Slightly late response online on my part but just wanted to say that the washing machine, all be it 6 months old and without warranty, has been replaced as it has a mind of its own!! We have since purchased pillow top mattress pads, personally I like a firm bed but I know thats not for everyone, the pillow top can be removed for those who like a firmer bed. Glad you had a great time. Tim
