Fun week

  • 4 of 5

Spent 1 week with 12 family members at BajaMar! Overall, it was wonderful & fun! House & staff were great. There are minor things in the house, that need attention.

Also, some of the outside things that come with the house, also need attention.

Staff was great helping us all week! Cheers to them!!

Incredible Week at Baha Mar

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (6 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 children) just returned from a fantastic week at Baha Mar!

Working with Tony, the owner, was an easy, seamless experience. This was my first time booking anything on vrbo, so I was a little nervous. Tony was attentive, responded to questions very quickly and offered great suggestions to the many questions I had. He even asked how we needed the beds arranged before we arrived.

The house and grounds are better than pictured. The house sits right on a beautiful beach. The view is amazing. The house is well appointed and everything we needed was provided. Note-the three downstairs suites are separate units. To go upstairs to the living quarters, you have to go outside. It wasn't an issue for us, we just weren't expecting it.

We LOVE the staff at this property and it's clearly what sets it apart from other properties. Alfred took care of everything...he booked excursions, transportation, golf carts-really anything we needed, or wanted. (The 9 year old in our group loves Frosted Flakes. He showed up one morning with a box for her.) We took a welcome meal from Dianie. It was so good that we booked four more meals throughout the week with her. Make sure you have her coconut rice and back beans! By the end of the week, we considered Alfred a friend and tried to convince him to come to Texas with us.

Overall, our experience far exceeded our expectations. I wish I was there now. :-)

Everything from start to finish was "over the top" regarding our stay at this property.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so beautiful and from the moment we arrived, Alfred was more than hospitable to all of us along with his helpers. The private swimming pool was very clean and perfect temperature. Would highly recommend that Dianie make a few meals for you as they were like high end restaurant style quality and she even made a birthday cake for our son. I am spreading the word on this place as it was more than I ever dreamed of. So clean, comfortable, well maintained and probably the best vacation I've ever had with the whole family. Alfred arranged all of our fishing and snorkeling excursions and set up our golf cart rentals for going out. When we went out at night (or day) he always made sure things were locked up and kept safe while away. So many wonderful restaurants close by as well. Enjoyed his dog Po as well whom goes wherever Alfred goes.

Wonderful Stay at BajaMar

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (5 couples) had such an amazing stay at BajaMar. The house is big and beautiful, but warm and inviting. It is right on the beach, and the view is gorgeous. The house and beach are well maintained and in great condition. The rooms are big and clean with comfy king sized beds. There is an adorable little dog (Poh) who hangs out at the house, and we loved it since we were missing our dog. But don't worry, if you don't like dogs, he will stay away from you and he is very quiet and well behaved.

Alfred was so helpful especially with booking excursions and for meal recommendations. Alfred's wife Dianie cooked a fantastic dinner for us on the first night, and we had leftovers for lunch the next day.

The house has kayaks that we used on several occasions to paddle out to the reef and snorkel, which was incredible. The house also has a private dock and all of the water taxis are familiar with the house, which made it very easy to go into town. We took a private water taxi from the mainland airport, which I highly recommend.

We absolutely loved our stay at BajaMar, I can't recommend it enough! Thanks to Tony, Alfred, Christian, and Dianie.

Excellent family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip to Belize for our father’s 70th birthday! The house itself was stunning – the grounds were very well maintained, and we enjoyed drinking coffee on the deck and watching the sunrise nearly every day. We also enjoyed using the pool quite frequently – we LOVED the bar stools! The peaceful setting of Casa BajaMar was perfect for our group, which consisted of five couples from across the United States (Alaska, Alabama, Michigan, and Texas). Due to our late arrival, Dianie had an excellent meal prepared for us when we arrived. Alfred and Tony were extremely helpful for coordinating our water taxi, golf cart rental, and other excursions (ruins, fishing, snorkeling).

Alfred and his family were excellent hosts and made us all feel very comfortable. The whole trip was impeccable – we would absolutely love to stay here again in the future!

BajaMar Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Four adults, two college students and one high school freshman enjoyed a perfect week at BajaMar. The house easily accommodated our crew in great comfort. Everything you read in other reviews and see in photos is as advertised--actually nicer. The beds are very comfortable, the linens high quality and the house has every imaginable necessity. Truly--you can't go wrong.

We particularly enjoyed sitting on the upper deck facing the ocean, enjoying the ever present breeze (March has a steady easterly wind blowing in) while reading books and relaxing in the warmth (82 degrees the entire week). I did find myself distracted, however, by the incredible view of waves breaking on the reef ~700 yards away. To see the waves, one has to look past the azure blue sea in between--tough problem.

Should you choose to be more ambitious, the four kayaks offer an easy and fun way to explore the nearby reef. After a ~500 yd paddle, you approach the reef and can tie up your kayak to a buoy near the reef (you can actually stand in ~4' of water at the buoy). From here we snorkeled all over and saw a surprising amount of marine life around the reef--very cool!

For event better snorkeling (we also went scuba diving), you should hire someone to take you to Mexican Rocks, Hol Chan Marine and Shark / Ray alley. All really fun spectacles in water ranging from 10'-30'. Other adventures we experienced: Secret beach, Fly fishing for tarpon and bonefish on the flats (bay side of Ambergris), Caye Caulker (touristy but fun stroll through town) and walks on the beach to various bars and restaurants. ALL of the events were organized and arranged by Alfred who is AMAZING. He was always available, extremely knowledgable, and his recommendations never let us down. He also has numerous stories which are guaranteed to entertain.

Alfred's wife, Dianie cooked us a welcome dinner--which was fantastic--and made things very relaxed on our arrival day. We had also pre-ordered supplies from Mata Grande grocery. The order was perfect, delivered as promised and drinks were cold upon our arrival. We mostly cooked our own breakfasts and a few lunches but went out for dinner.

Rojo lounge , just two docks north, is a very laid back beach bar with excellent food. Have fun with the massive jenga game! Two docks further north is Mata Chica a more stylish / chic resort that offers excellent food and a great vibe. The list of places you can go is endless. Have fun!

From the Owner

While all beautiful places have their individual charms, nowhere on earth has given me the same sense of a yearning to return than here at BajaMar on Ambergris, the “Isla Bonita”. As a brief background to the house, at the end of 2007 I bought the land, five miles north of San Pedro Town, to build BajaMar as a tropical home. The intention was to enable my wife and I to escape the cold winters of Europe; that I might fly-fish the surrounding salt water flats during my retirement and the decision was made with some vague and eccentric middle aged whim of investment. While the conceptual layout of the house was mine, the fine architectural design is entirely to the credit of local architect, Sue Courtenay. The house was completed in 2010 after a prolonged and challenging construction period of some two and a half years. Every single material for the construction was brought to the site by barge.
