Plenty of room

  • 3 of 5

Pros....there was plenty of room in this large home for family and friends to come and go. The pool was wonderful and was cleaned for us everyday The beach was warm and sandy Daniel came almost everyday to rake that nasty sea grass out Kayaks and pool toys worked well. Location is great for walking the beach and to restaurants Having the additional ice maker helped keep the drinks cold Beds were comfortable and clean

Cons.......that being said be prepared to bring everything needed to do any type of cooking. We rent villas so we don’t have to eat out all the time most are stocked with the basics for the kitchen. No salt and pepper no cooking oil no napkins no sugar no flour no tin foil or plastic wrap When we got there the dishwasher had the last guests dishes in it which we had to empty. NOT cool. Counters and floors were dirty with sticky spill stains everywhere. We enjoy cooking together very disappointed that nothing in the outdoor kitchen worked Would have been great to not have to run back into the house every time you wanted to refresh your cocktail Grill was a mess even the garbage can out there was broke When you pay this price to rent a villa everything should be in exceptional condition and clean Guests should not have to clean appliances etc before being used

Owner's Response: Upon arrival to a very clean home the guests rearranged all of the furniture. In addition they cut up our new dish towels as they wanted smaller towels. A full upper cabinet in the kitchen was unloaded of dishes, etc. so that the guest could use it as a pantry. A pantry already existed in a below counter 360 degree swivel cabinet which apparently was not utilized. The floors and counters were mopped and cleaned the day of arrival as is done with all guests. Tatiana did accidentally forget to empty the dishwasher however all items in it were clean. The floors and counters only became dirty once the guests started cooking in the kitchen. We do provide housekeeping service every other day of each stay and the house was definitely in need of cleaning for each service. As the former manager of over 25 homes on the island I can personally say that the kitchen in Casa Layla is the most well-stocked kitchen by far I’ve ever been in. Every pot, pan, utensil and serving dish is available including a full set of outdoor dining items. Salt and pepper are next to the stove however we do not provide other perishable goods. We do provide paper towels for all of our guests as well as cleaning supplies, towels and linens. The grocery stores in San Pedro all sell small quantities of spices, oil, etc as they know many people are only shopping for a week. In addition Tatiana, our caretaker, offered to go shopping for the guests to make it easier for them. Tatiana offers this to all of our guests and most if not all of them take her up on it. There is also a grocery store about a mile south of the house, Mata Grande, which offers online ordering and delivery service. Casa Layla has a great outdoor kitchen with swim up bar. I’m only aware of one other private home on the island with a feature quite like this. The guests are correct in that one item (the outside bar refrigerator was not working) but was rectified as soon as we were made aware of the situation. The grill was used daily by the guests. There is also a sink in this outdoor kitchen so it’s easy to rinse dishes, hands etc while cooking. We would kindly ask you to read our previous reviews that cover the last four years. We have enjoyed hosting many guests and do everything we can to ensure their stay with us at Casa Layla is enjoyable and just as comfortable as being home if not more so!

Wedding at Casa Layla

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Casa Layla for our wedding in March. Brittany was really helpful with connecting us with local vendors and renting us golf carts. Tatiana was wonderful to answer questions throughout our stay--and we had a lot! My only regret is that we didn't ask her to cook for us, which other reviewers have said was a good choice. We did, however, get some local caterers (Chefs for Hire) to cook dinner for the wedding reception. They were able to jump right into the kitchen and made an incredible meal for the guests.

It was so nice to have the private dock. We used it for water taxi rides to/from San Pedro and for a pickup to a catamaran snorkel tour we had booked one of the days.

We had 14 people in the house, but it felt plenty spacious with the outdoor and rooftop space. We had about 4 guests in each bedroom, so that might have felt tight to some who are used to their privacy. And some of our guests stayed right next door at La Perla del Caribe, which was perfect.

The days flew by, and we were never short on entertainment around the house. The music system is awesome once you figure it out. And our Spotify playlists worked on it! The pool, dock, and rooftop are all incredible. It's a once-in-a-lifetime rental, and I highly recommend it.

Amazing home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and very well kept. If you're there as a group to just hang out peacefully this place is perfect. There are several resorts you can walk or take a golf cart to and everything else on the island is just an easy water taxi away. Tatiana (caretaker) made some of the best food you could imagine and she took care of whatever we needed. It's a little off the beaten path but perfect for couples or a family trip where you just want to get away.

Great Stay in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the amazing experience we had at Casa Layla for my 40th Birthday celebration w/great friends! Brittany was a pleasure to work with during the booking process, and Tatiana was amazing during our stay; she cooked an amazing spread for dinner the night of my birthday, including carrot cake!! The house, pool and beach are beautiful! Couldn't have asked for a better stay!!

Our stay at Casa Layla could not have been better. The setting is absolutely breathtaking! The home is just that... like HOME only in PARADISE -with a picture perfect view from all places in the house! Warm, inviting, gorgeous, and unbelievably clean. You have all you need to make your stay very comfortable. Everything is the top of the line throughout the house. Beds were so comfy! Decorated beautifully! Perfect home with great entertainment- including the beautiful pool, fun swim-up bar, outside kitchen & spacious deck. The location is perfect because it is very private, yet easy to get to restaurants, stores, and bars/casino- if you choose. Cayaks were fun to take out for some beautiful snorkeling!! Daniell & Tatiana (staff) are so friendly & made sure we were well taken care of. Such a precious couple! Tatiana spoiled us with delicious breakfast & yummy fresh ceviche!! Brittany (property manager)was an incredible help by providing our family with numbers for rides when we needed taxis and directed us to some golf cart rentals with good rental prices. She also was so generous in sharing fabulous suggestions for our family to go eat & fun entertainment spots during our stay! We were not disappointed!! We did not want to leave paradise!!! Can't say enough good about Casa Layla!! :) Already looking forward to returning in the future! Amazing place!!!!

BEST spot on Ambergris Caye

  • 5 of 5

Casa Layla is spectacular!! I've been visiting the island for many years and stayed at numerous places, this was by far the best experience I've ever had!! The house is super clean and spacious. It was great for our large extended family. Of course it is beach front so super easy access to boat taxis and reef guides to scoop you up. The north end of the island is so peaceful and private. You have the beach all to yourself! Tatiana and Daniel (staff) were so helpful and accommodating. Honestly, I don't have one complaint about our entire experience, except I wish it could have been longer!! I highly recommend Casa Layla to anyone looking for a relaxing and/or adventurous vacation! You can make it what you want!
