What Past Guests Are Saying
Our family stayed at agape House for one week in March. We had a wonderful time in amy’s home—it is just as advertised, well maintained, fully equipped, and absolutely beautiful. We found the location in Tres Cocos exactly to our liking; close to San Pedro but just far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of ambergris Caye.
During our stay the water in front of the house was filled with marine life, from rays to eels and even seahorses, not to mention the numerous species of fishes and crustaceans that we could even watch from the dock. We were in the water every day and saw something new each time. We also snorkeled Hol Chan and Shark Ray alley and highly recommend it if you have the opportunity. For us, it was truly an underwater paradise.
The mangrove swamps were wonderful for bird watchers, as is all of ambergris Caye. It’s well worth it to bring your binoculars!
We found the local food to be delicious and the people warm and welcoming. We had a great stay in Belize and agape House was the perfect home base for us.
Outstanding House and Great Location
We rented the house for the Thankgiving week, my wife and two grown children. The kids shared the bedroom witht two twin beds and my wife and I took the master bedroom. The house was just right for our size of group. The house is in a residental area with the ocean approx 15 steps from the house. The view is gorgious from either the balcony or the main level porch. The house looks quite new inside and out.
We really enjoyed the location and our stay. The Palamar Bar that sits over the ocean is a 3 minute walk and San Pedro is a short trip by golf cart (definetly advise rental of one). There is some noice early in the morning with foot and bicycle traffic on the path in front of the house and the boat traffic starts early as well if you are a very light sleeper.
We did have some problems with the wireless and the telephone but I believe that is Belize, not the house.
Also, take the owners advise on bug spray. You don't see them but they leave a mark that lasts about a week.
We'll be back!
Agape House is a gorgeous, meticulously maintained, updated home that provided more than enough space for our family. The tranquil beachfront location was definitely my favorite part of our stay! Agape House's two huge front porches provided comfortable places to relax and soak in the sea breezes, listen to the roar of the reef (1/4 mile offshore!), and watch boats go by in the distance. At night, the moon and stars were breathtaking. We loved sitting out on the private pier to star-gaze and watch the moon rise! We'll be back!
This was an amazing trip and an amazing place to stay! We rented the villa b/c the house was already booked. But we were still thrilled!
Once we committed to the rental, Mrs. Greene gave us contact information of greeters-whom-we-now-call friends. Jorge was there to meet us at the airstrip, help with luggage, take us to the grocery & beer depot to stock up on provisions, get the keys from Melly, get a golf cart for the week and then dropped us at the house, all within about 2 hours!
Both Melly and Jorge were available anytime we had questions or needed recommendations! Make sure you stop into Caliente to have a drink with both of them.
The villa and house are enclosed on three sides by gated wooden fencing that is open to the beach and the bay, with ample parking for the golf cart. The louvered glass windows allowed for a constant breeze off the ocean all day and night and were screened to prevent bugs. You will have the sweep every now an then because of the breeeze-blown sand.
The villa accommodates 4, has hardwood floors and 2 full baths. It was very clean and came with excellent cable. The wireless was a bit slow, but that was mainly a matter of Carribbean Cable's compatibility with Macs. Both aCs worked excellently in the bedrooms, the refrigerator and stove are full-sized and there is excellent water-pressure, something I find important. The kitchen is stocked with housewares and the supplied towels and bed linens were clean. But, bring your own beach towels or just buy a temporary one.
The beach and pier for the property were literally 50 feet way! At times, the water was only thigh-deep and the pier has it's own mini-reef system right there!! Who needs to pay to snorkel, when it's right off your pier!
The house was also conveniently located on the island between a quiet area and the downtown area. To the north and a short walk away was Palapas, which I highly recommend for midday cool-down drinks and sunset pre-dinner drinks! Farther up was ak'bol, a great yoga retreat, that offers 2 classes a day, drinks and food all day on the beach until 8pm. A little farther up was the Grand Caribe Resort, more drinks and food on the beach. Farther up from that was aji, another great food and drink restaurant. We used the golf cart to go to downtown, which was south of the villa. Must visits: Legends on Tuesday night, Caliente, Fido's, Ramon's, El Divino (steak). Although this area was busier and had a lot of large resorts, it seemed too busy and less special/private. And, although there was nothing unsafe about our location that I could see, we did have security.
We had to cut our vacation short by a day, but not to worry, Melly and Jorge were there to make sure that we made our flight on time.
All in all, I must say again that this location was amazing, fantastic and I will definitely recommend it to my friends as a great destination rental.
Great location with frigatebirds in the sky and reef fish by the
We stayed in agape Villa, behind the agape House. The area is great - a quiet "residential" neighborhood right by the water - away from the big hotels. With a golf chart you get into town in about 10 or 15 minutes. A 2 -minute walk North is Palapa Bar, which is the "bus stop" for water taxis.
A minute further North, we watched a nest of Ospreys perched in the water.
The owner gave us the advice to fly Tropic air to the island (15 minutes from Belize City), which was good, since the boats take much longer and might be unreliable.
When we arrived we were picked up by someone who represented the owners. The person was great and helped us get oriented and gave us many tips during our stay.
The space is great for four, a master bed room with a queen size bed, another bed room with two single beds. You can cook, or better walk to one of the places North that have great food. Or drive the golf chart into town.
The dock was great for star-gazing and during the day we spotted puffer fish, grunts, butterfly fish and even a lion fish. The water is a bit too shallow for snorkeling and there is boat traffic if you swim out too far. A boat ramp provides easy access so you can take quick dip and refresh yourself.
We all loved the agape Villa and from what we saw, the House is also very nice. Since the Villa is upstairs over a boathouse, it may not be ideal for people with disabilities or small children.
San Pedro on the island of ambergris Caye, is a delightful anachronism. There are no private cars and transport around this island is either by water taxi or golf cart, an experience that adds to the sense of timelessness that pervades this idyllic retreat.
Although the main roads in the town are metalled, the majority are still sand, and riding the golf cart into town at night to visit one of the many reasonable restaurants San Pedro has to offer, is to take a trip back in time to where I would imaging Cancun was in the mid 1950's.
Although improvements to the airport have modernised that particular experience, the island is very conservation minded and development, although taking place, is strictly controlled with no high rise being permitted.
Amongst the many attractions on the island are the world's second largest barrier reef which offers spectacular diving and snorkelling, and the salt flats, through the mangrove swamps, where fly-fishing for Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon may be carried out in a sub-tropical paradise.
Agape House is well appointed, bright and airy, occupying a superb spot five minutes north of San Pedro across the San Pedro "river?, which is in fact a mangrove lined channel from the lagoon to the reef, and benefits from its own jetty. Quiet, but just five minutes' walk from Palapa Bar, a unique place to enjoy a cocktail whilst waiting for the water taxi into town.
On the main land there are unmissable trips to the Mayan ruins of Lamanai and altan Ha.
Ambergris Caye has to be seen to be believed!
