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.

Amazing house! Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Baja Mar! 7 of us, two couples and three singles, were very very comfortable in the 5 bedrooms, 4 of which have ocean views. The house is just stunning and beautifully equipped. Alfred and Dianie and wonderful hosts, and were always available for anything we needed. Dianie is a fabulous chef and we highly recommend her home cooked meals. The house is 30 minutes by golf cart to San Pedro (which was fine with us), but if you're hoping to spend lots of time in the town it might be a bit far. We loved the easy beach access and use of the 4 kayaks.

Beautiful hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fabulous at Baja Mar, from the house to Alfred and Diannie. With 10 of us traveling, the home gave us plenty of room, and well as areas to all gather. Alfred was very helpful, and everything we requested was spot on when we got to the house! He had our golf cart waiting, and snacks, beers cold, and drink mixers ready for us. Diannie cooked us an incredible dinner the first night, as well as breakfast the next morning. The beach was beautifully groomed and cleaned every morning, and Alfred would check in daily to make sure we had what we needed. He arranged a fishing and snorkel trip for us, we brought our fish home and Diannie cooked it for a birthday dinner for one of our travelers. We requested lobster, conch ceviche, and the fish we caught...they even went above and beyond and brought a cake from the bakery in town. I highly recommend staying at Baja Mar, it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town...but a short drive in a cart, and close to bars/restaurants that are walking distance just up or down the beach. I hope on one of our future stays in Belize, we can stay here again.

Amazing and Incredible!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the top vacation our family has ever been on. The house was perfect!! We had a total of 7 on the trip. It was my wife and I and our 5 young adult kids. We highly recommend Dianne’s welcome dinner. She made us a lobster and chicken dinner. We cannot say enough about Alfred. He made the entire trip perfect. We waited until we got to the house and Alfred then set up a fishing trip, snorkeling trip, and our cave tubing trip. He had the trip excursions pick us up and drop us off at our dock. He also got us incredible prices on all he excursions. Do not set anything up prior to getting the house. Alfred takes care of it all. He also set it up to have our 2 golf carts delivered and picked up at our house. On top of setting up all of our activities, he recommended all the dining we did each night on the island. We were never disappointed. We surely got our fill of lobster and Belikin for the week. We highly recommend having lunch and sitting in the tubes at Palapas for drinks. The restaurant sends your drinks down to you in a bucket as you sit in large tubes in the ocean with great people and incredible fish swimming underneath you. We went to rebook the vacation again for next Christmas but it was already booked. We loved the entire experience. The pool, the ocean, the house, and the great breezes always coming off the ocean. It is impossible to not have an incredible experience. Finally, can’t leave out to coolest laid back dog on the island. Poe is awesome. He always hung out with us on the deck and we always wanted him hanging with us.

The view, food and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at BajaMar for 6 days in November. We were one of 5 couples. The home was very comfortable and the space worked well for us. The beach view was beautiful and never got old! Alfred, Dianie and the family take great care of the property, looked after us and took care of our needs. Dianie's food preparation was great and such a great value. We chose to have her make us breakfast every morning and had 4 dinners at the house. We opted not to do golf carts. The road into town is a bit bumpy and further than we expected. We did take a private water transport into town a couple of times which cost us $150 round trip so $30 a couple. We felt safe walking around San Pedro in the evening. Food at restaurants was more expensive then eating at the house. We walked to John's Escape to eat lunch a couple of times and the food was good. They have great pizza. Alfred would check with us daily and would pick up items we needed from the store. He gave us a bill once a day for food prep and groceries. We purchased our alcohol at the airport duty free shop in Belize City. We loved Po, the well behaved dog of Alfred and Dianie. Bring bug spray as there are bitting bugs around. We would definitely stay here again.

Well equipped, comfortable and convenient to restaurants. Eleven of us had fun and had plenty of space. No one felt on top of the others. Alfred and Dianie saw to our every need! Charming place.
