Villa Sand is designed using native non-endangered materials for dark mahogany floors and hand hewn walls in an open 2 bedroom 2 bath layout. The villa is a single story modern building with fine finishes, thatched porches and high mahogany ceilings in the local style.

Villa Sand features a wide wooden deck at the entry along with two screened porches facing the ocean off each bedroom. Decor is rustic/modern with authentic Guatemalan antiques, artisan crafted wooden tables and artworks. Villa Sand features a unique driftwood art piece and handmade lampshades using linen paper on a natural wood base. Furnishings and linens are tasteful and classic using light-toned linen, cotton and canvas fabrics suited to the casual Latin – Caribbean beach environment. Bedrooms are air conditioned.

Each large bath has warm toned rustic terrazzo floors, hand painted walls and hand crafted mexican tile. Both baths have tiled walk in showers, indigenous antiques and custom standing wooden sinks. Each bath has a window looking out on palms and sand.

Villa Sand has been designed, constructed and furnished with an artist’s eye and keen attention to detail. You will enjoy this relaxing and unique home. Your front yard is white sugar sand and turquoise blue water.

A luxury vacation villa in the Caribbean is something many of us dream of – we hear of celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio buying a private island and the rich and famous spending time at private beach villas. So we think it’s available only to the very wealthy. Yet, in fact, the cost per person at a vacation villa is often less than staying at a hotel.

The Villas at La Perla Del Caribe are a case in point. These high-end, private homes situated on prime beachfront property on Ambergris Caye, one of the unspoiled gems of the Caribbean, are now available for rent – and they’re very affordable. This resort offers you and your family the experience of a luxury Caribbean beach vacation, without breaking the bank.

Each villa is distinctively designed with a Mediterranean-style architectural motif that is unique in Belize, and each villa’s appointments and aesthetic effects have been customized to the tastes of the respective villa owners.

The homes are situated on a 4.5 acres site which slopes gently to the water’s edge and features an absolutely magnificent stretch of sandy beach. Close offshore is the Belize coral reef, the second biggest barrier reef in the world, rated as one of the top ten dive sites.

The property also features a tropical pool and has a 350 foot pier. La Perla Del Caribe offers a tranquil environment in which to relax and enjoy your holiday in paradise.

Very secluded but beautiful property

  • 4 of 5
We came to stay at La Perla as our second choice. We had booked Solaria for two families which was a large 4 bedroom closer to town. However this property was inadvertently double booked and we had to scramble to make other arrangements. We had to rent two villas to accommodate our two families and we booked both Villa Sand and Villa Topaz. When we arrived we were happy with the accommodations. Villa Sand is on the beach and is very relaxing. Overall the property was how it was described, however it was missing some furniture and lamps. There is only one couch in the living room and the photo showed more furniture. This resulted in very limited seating in the living room. The master bedroom was very dark even with the light on and had to use a flashlight to see the safe at night. The bed in the master was very hard however the other room had a nice mattress. There were lamps in the second bedroom in the closet but none of them worked. Make sure you bring flashlight with you as the property is dark and the path lighting was turned on sporadically or not at all. The property could use a little sprucing up. The drapes were dirty and stained as was the couch. We ran the air conditioning even though it was December and don't think the villa would stay cool if it was any hotter outside. There were many good things about the property. The shower amenities were of good quality and there were enough towels for the shower and pool that we did not have to worry about drying them out. The villa was cleaned every day and overall it was very clean. The staff of Rene and Toshiva were very attentive and tried to meet all of our needs. For example there were 5 kayaks for use but only 3 sets of paddles. We pointed this out and they did order more but they did not arrive till the day of our departure. The pools could use some better and more lounge chairs as all the villas were rented and the pool got crowded. The grounds were very well maintained and they worked every day to remove the sea grass from the beach. The location is very secluded and to get to San Pedro you had to take the water taxi which only ran about every 2 hours and it was $11 per person both ways. The resort had a very nice boat which picked us up from the airport but it was not available for other uses. Overall I would recommend this location if you were not renting in high season. The cost over Christmas was high and did not feel the property warranted the Christmas price.
