This two level mahogany and sandstone villa is located directly on the Caribbean ocean. The villa has two master suites with double sinks with another top level bedroom and bathroom. There is a large second level deck that overlooks the ocean, with a comfy hammock and seating for four. We have a two-person kayak available for your use - just ask Sergio, our caretaker, to bring it out for you! Plus, two new bikes to ride around. And, during your visit, we have a local Belize cell phone available for your use - just ask Miss Raquel, our housekeeper.
The lovely pool is shared by the four villas of Los Encantos, Villa La Jolla is Villa #1 on the oceanfront. We have an onsite caretaker, Mr. Sergio, and his wife and our housekeeper, Ms. Raquel; she is happy to prepare a Belizean meal, should you wish.
There is a terrific grocery behind the property that will provision the villa ahead of your arrival - look up Mata Grande Grocery on Google.
Scuba, fishing and snorkeling galore - tours will pick you up at the Los Encantos private pier. The local guides will barbeque the 'catch of the day' on the beach, should you wish.
Close enough to San Pedro town, but still private. San Pedro can be accessed via regular water ferry, private water taxi, golfcart or bike. And, there are nice restaurants and bars that are a short stroll up or down the beach from Villa La Jolla.
Villa La Jolla is a comfortable, welcoming private home from which to start your Belizean adventure. Ours is not your choice if you seek 'state of the art kitchens' or 1000 count bedsheets. If you want somewhere you'll feel comfortable in which to live and enjoy, we're your choice. If there is anything you need or would like, our onsite caretaker and his wife, our housekeeper, will assist immediately. And, our on-island rental manager, Mary, is a phone call away to arrange tours, golf carts rentals, restaurant bookings - anything you wish.
We are very grateful for the nice reviews that our guests have sent and you can read these at 'Reviews'. Also, many guests have sent us comments which we've posted for your review. VRBO has recently changed their system so that guest comments are no longer shown in 'Reviews' but are shown in another area - please see 'guest comments' directly above 'Photos'. We want you to have as complete a picture as possible of your Belizean vacation spot.
Keywords: Directly on the Caribbean, this large custom-built house, two levels, three bedrooms and 3 baths, is your gateway to adventure and relaxation.
We wanted a retreat on the ocean, close to diving and other water sports and we found a perfect place here at Los Encantos! We go into San Pedro town regularly, but often enjoy staying here and barbequing or simply relaxing.
I wanted to thank you once again for helping us to enjoy a marvelous trip on Ambergris Caye! What a gem you have!
“We are close to San Pedro town but far enough away that you have your 'private Caribbean'. All dive shops and snorkel and fishing guides will pick you up from our private pier, shown in the photo. Restaurants and bars are a walk up or down the beach.”
Local guides and dive shops will pick you up from our private pier and take you for a day of adventure: snorkel, fish, SCUBA, beach barbeque. Also, day trips to inland Belize and Mayan ruins, cave tubing and jungle tours are easily arranged through our on-island rental management company. We have a caretaker and housekeeper that live on the property - ready with answers to any questions. All the privacy of a home, within easy reach of San Pedro town and other adventures.
A note about getting around on the island. We prefer going by water - private water taxi or Coastal ferry - or by bike or by foot. Some of our guests have rented golf carts and our on-island rental manager can assist you with that. Having said that, the road for the golf carts is a little rough. And, golf cart rentals tend to be expensive. You can always rent a golf cart after you arrive.
