Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Back in 2013, we started on the project that eventually became Laura's Lookout and Sandy's Secret. Sandy's Secret, a two bedroom apartment, is located on the first floor of the house; Laura's Lookout occupies the floors above. Sandy's, however, has its own separate entrance from the front of the house; Laura's is accessed by an entrance around the back, done purposely so that each house would retain it's individuality and privacy. In addition, Sandy's was built using sound insulation in reinforced concrete, minimizing any noise from outside or above. We have a 24 hour security guard on site and during the day, our office hours are 8:00am - 5:00pm and Michael our manager lives onsite, so someone is always on hand to help with your needs. The apartment is light and airy, with incredible, impressive views of the beach, dock, sea and the reef beyond. It offers easy access to the Beach Road, which will take you right into the center of town by either a 5-10 minute bike ride, or a 10- 15 minute walk, but the location remains quiet and secluded; a bit of the Caye Caulker of old!!! Completed by Mennonite craftsman, the workmanship is exceptional. Like Laura's above, it includes hand crafted wood floors and furniture that evoke the hardwood forests Belize is known for. The floor plan includes two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds that can be made into a King upon request. For convenience, depending on the group, mattresses are available for those who would rather not share a bed. All linens are 400 thread count; the full bathroom is always stocked with thick, plentiful towels and beach towels. Air conditioning is available as needed in all rooms and with individual preference in mind, each unit has a separate remote control. The kitchen is roomy and modern, stocked with whatever appliance you should need. The living area, which commands awesome views of the sea, has a flat screen TV, games, wi-fi and a movie library. A few steps from the front door are all that is needed to bring you to our man made beach, jutting 50 feet into the sea. It converts into a volleyball court, but it also provides an area in which to relax and enjoy the sun. Immediately beyond the beach area is our recently renovated 300 foot dock. 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. If you prefer your water fresh, Sandy's also has a 35 x 15 foot 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. Bikes are available on site for US$5.00 per bike, per day.

We absolutely LOVED this house. It was perfect. Very clean, helpful and kind staff, right on the ocean, and a short bike ride to town. AC worked WONDERFULLY and our rooms got very cold at night. Will definitely be returning

Reviewer Comments:

Excellent location, great manager, very nice place - overall very satisfied and kids had a blast. One thing not clear in the posting is that this is the bottom floor of a two story house. Depending on who is upstairs there is potential for banging on the ceiling, running, or loud talking from balcony. Also, this place is much more expensive (2-3X) than many I had seen elsewhere on the island.

Reviewer Comments:

The only qualm I had with this rental was that there was a lot of seaweed that was washed up agains the shore the entire time we were there. This was unfortunately pretty smelly, so that diminished part of the enjoyment of being right at the ocean. Not sure if that is constant or come and goes, though.

Reviewer Comments:

A very well equipped rental that includes everything needed to enjoy time in Caye Caulker. The unit is very clean and the grounds are well kept and just steps to the ocean. Very secure location. The staff very nice and they take care of everything involving arrival and departure. The dock is very nice and inviting. The patio furniture provided for guests is high quality and comfortable. If ever you want to get away, I would highly recommend Sandy's Secret or any other property they have to offer.
