Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Completed in 2014 Laura's Lookout is a beach front property located on South Caye Caulker, north of the islands airstrip. Conveniently located only a short 5 minute bike ride or a 10 minute walk to the downtown area, the house and it's surrounding area retain the unspoiled, quiet nature Caye Caulker is known for. The interior layout is perfect for either a family or group of friends, with two bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath downstairs and a more private Master suite upstairs, with two twin beds that convert into king bed if you would prefer, again with it's own full bath. The sheets are 400 thread count, and the towels plentiful, thick and lush. If needed, there are additional mattresses for singles who would prefer not to share beds. Additionally, air conditioning is provided for each room, with it's own separate controls for each room.The living area features an open floor plan that includes a newly modern kitchen with a full appliance range and extra drinks fridge, a washing machine area for your use, a dining area and lounge area with flat screen TV; a movie library and wi-fi are included. Built by a nearby Mennonite community, the workmanship is exceptional: quality hand crafted wood floors, ceilings and furniture that evoke the hard wood forests Belize is known for. Perhaps, however, one of the many great features of the house would be the full length, private front deck off the living area. Commanding unbelievable views of the sea and nearby (less than a mile away),world famous reef , it is truly breathtaking and not to be missed. It is only accessible through a door off the kitchen, ensuring privacy for all, with two Belizean woven hammocks for afternoon naps. As you leave the house down a short flight of stairs, you first encounter the 35 x 15 foot private outdoor pool, available only to guests, complete with rafts, sunken into a wood deck that respects the palm trees that were there before and many chaises for sunbathing. Turning the corner to your right around the house, you encounter the man made beach area, jutting 50 feet into the sea, which converts to a volleyball court when needed, but also provides another area in which to relax and enjoy the sun. Finally, just beyond the beach area, you come upon the 300 foot dock which has just recently been expanded. With three separate entrances to the water below, there is room to dock your boat (if you have one!!), 6 pods extending outward for more room and a palapa at the end of the dock if you require shade. Covered with chaise lounges, you would be hard pressed to find a better place on Caye Caulker to just sit and relax, or watch the incredible sunsets. Laura'a Lookout has also been fully designed with safety in mind. Featuring protection on all first level windows, there is only one entrance to the house, accessible from the pool deck, away from public paths. Additionally, we have an on site, 24 hour security guard. During the day, our office hours are 9:00-5:00, so that someone is always on hand to help with your needs.

A few recommendations:

Snorkeling, Deep Sea Fishing or Shark Alley: Carlos Tours, who is a longtime resident of Caye Caulker. He can take large groups and/or customize a day excursion for you. He will meet you right at the dock.

Dining: Rosie's, for fresh fish caught that morning; The Pasta Factory, for fresh pastas made daily, The Rainbow Restaurant, something for everyone; Caye Caulker Pizza, excellent for the kids or a light meal; Il Pellicano, more expensive, but terrific Italian food with a Caribbean flair; Habanero's is arguably the best food on the island but not as cheap as many other options such as Syd's, for traditional Belizean fare; The Caye Caulker Bakery, for some of the best, fresh daily cinnamon rolls you have ever had!

Don't Miss: The Split, located at the North End of the island. If you can tear yourself away from the sunsets at the end of the dock, this is a great alternative, and also fun for drinks all day, anytime!

Reviewer Comments:

This is the second year that we have stayed in a Gore Creek property on the beautiful island of Caye Caulker. This year we reserved Laura’s Lookout, a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with an awesome oceanside deck. The house was perfect for the whole family, which included my husband and myself, and our two adult children and their significant others. The accommodations were very comfortable and we enjoyed our mornings on the deck drinking coffee (and occasionally eating breakfast) and relaxing on the cozy chairs and hammocks, before beginning an eventful day. The kitchens are well stocked with the essentials for preparing meals if you choose. I made the comment several times that they have really thought through supplying anything you need to make your visit comfortable and to make you feel at home. The pool is awesome. It is nice to come back for a cool dip in the pool after a long hot day. The pool temperature is perfect and the pool is clean and inviting. A luxury that many properties do not offer. The beautiful secured dock is another enjoyable amenity, for relaxing, swimming, star gazing and enjoying the sunrise. It is well maintained with comfortable chairs for lounging. We love being able to select a bike from the numerous options available, right on the property. You can get anywhere on the island in a matter of minutes by bike. The staff is awesome. Always available and willing to help with anything that can make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. Very professional. Then there is always Max the neighboring dog. He has taken it upon himself to be the night guard and ensures that all the guests are safe. He will even escort you up and down the beach at night. He has a sense about intruders and will warn off unwelcomed visitors. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and safe place to stay, this is it! We will definitely be staying at Gore Creek again, in the near future.

This house had great views of the water and plenty of space. We enjoyed the front deck and the breezes were wonderful. Unfortunately the AC in the bedrooms did not work so it made for uncomfortable nights.

This is a location you can't beat for a wonderful experience on Caye Caulker. The owner was extremely responsive and helpful. The facilities were nice, clean and homey. The local manager and team were friendly and responsive. There were some spices and coffee left by previous visitors so we paid it forward and left some also. We were met at the water taxi terminal and taken directly to our place and then delivered a golf cart for our use during our stay. The owner put us in touch with a Jose's Tour which then hooked us up with the local scuba shop, French Angel. Most excellent scuba and snorkeling experience - Ash and crew were fantastic. Highly recommend Laura's Lookout or if you have a smaller group, Sandy's Secret, which is the lower half but doesn't have the view but you still have the dock for swimming or that great sunrise. There's not enough space to describe all the pluses of this location. One thing to note - if you can, buy groceries on the mainland - the local markets are pretty limited and a bit pricey. Thanks to all for a great family experience!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first trip to Caye Caulker. Laura's Lookout was a wonderful property. All of our interaction with the property managers were positive. Michael was extremely responsive prior to our arrival as was Cece during our stay. We were concerned about proximity to town and restaurants but that wasn't an issue. Michael and Cece helped with provisioning which was one of our concerns without having a vehicle. There is a path along the beach (as well as the road) that made it easy to get into town and our activities. I suggest packing a small flashlight although it was fairly well lit. The property was exactly as pictured and we would definitely chose it again for our next visit. The people were so friendly. Everything exceeded expectations.

Reviewer Comments:

We brought our two sons and teenage niece. The house was the perfect size for all of us and perfectly situated on the island. Just a quick walk to markets and restaurants but not in the middle of the most populated areas. There is not much of what Americans call a "beach" at Caye Caulker, but the beautiful nature, Belizean culture, and less touristy vibe were worth tradeoff. And the people who run this house and the surrounding houses are incredibly friendly and helpful.
