Why Tony Whitehouse chose San Pedro

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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Alfred and Dianie were the best! Dianie cooks the best food on the island. Recommend the snorkeling excursion with Geni and Rueben. You will not be disappointed. The pool was clean and beautiful and grounds kept up daily. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to Ambergris Caye.

Salt Lake City, Ut. USA


  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 were totally spoiled by Alfred and Diani. The house was very comfortable and gave everybody their own space. The beachfront views were both breathtaking and relaxing, the property was very well maintained and comfortable, but the highlight by far was the lovely caretakers. They were always willing and happy to make arrangements for any excursion we wanted to take, kept us well stocked on linens, water and other necessities, not to mention Dianies incredible authentic Belizean cuisine. We hired her services to prepare most of our meals, and every single one was prepared with love and care. They were lovely hosts and made our first trip to Belize a wonderful experience we will never forget.

Lovely Belize vacation

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our vacation at Baja Mar. It was a very comfortable and clean home with a gorgeous view. A few tips which would have been helpful: The flight on Air Tropic was a great way to travel to the island. Very efficient airline with flights leaving every 15 minutes. You arrive at the terminal and you leave on the next flight - regardless of your original booking time. Once you arrive in San Pedro airport, take a land taxi to the house. It is a short 15 to 20 minute ride for $35. Do not take water taxi as it is longer and more expensive if you have a larger group (there were 8 of us).If Alfred coordinates tours , always get quotes ideally in writing. He does have many connections and it is very helpful to have someone coordinate, but there were usually discrepancies in charges. We loved walking to dinner or breakfast at the Mita Chica Hotel. Great food and fabulous service. You can have breakfast for us $10 per person, so much less than having breakfast made for you at the house. Regarding golf carts - those are definitely the best way to get around the island! Visit Secret beach as it is lovely and never windy and rough. There are two restaurants on site with good food. We also went to shark alley to swim with the sharks and snorkel. That was a fabulous trip and worth the $60 per person charge.

Overall, we had a really nice time exploring Belize. They are lovely, warm people. The house was in a great location as we didn't have to drive for a meal if we didn't want to. Rojo's next door is pretty good as well. Great tacos. The house was cleaned twice during our 7 day stay, which was very nice. Beds were extremely comfortable. House could use some wine glasses, but overall well stocked with plates, pots and pans. Would recommend the home. And Tony - the owner is awesome to work with and extremely responsive!

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

Our group was 11 friends and we are all scuba divers. For us, the house could not have been better. Plenty of room for us to mingle and gather, but we all had our own privacy as well. The house was awesome, but the real treasures are the caretaker Alfred and his wife Dainie, who looked after all of our needs, including several home-cooked Belizian meals. With San Pedro a 20-minute boat ride away, and several nice resort restaurants just up the beach, this was the perfect getaway for us.

Memorable week at Bajamar

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to share our 50th wedding anniversary with my son and his family. There were 7 of us in all. The house was perfect. Everyone had their own bedroom and there were many places for all of us to gather. We rented two golf carts which allowed more flexibility. The only disappointment was the children couldn't snorkel and fish right off the dock due to the seaweed and rough water. The grounds crew raked and cleaned the seaweed at least twice a day as well as the sand leading up to the house. Alfred was amazing and met our every need. He recommended a private guide to take us snorkeling and fishing. He knew exactly where to go and everyone had a great time.

Dianne's welcome meal and all meals that she cooked for us were delicious.

We hope to return one day soon to Bajamar!

Bajamar is exceptional, and we have a wonderful in San Pedro!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Belize and I was not prepared for the gracious accommodations, the exceptional beauty and wonderful people there. Having a caretaker (and his family there) offered us incredible customer service and greatly improved our stay! I highly recommend this place and hope you have as wonderful a time as we did.
