Amazing trip with friends!!!
We had a group of 10 visit Amanda's Place from Texas. Between different members of the group we actually rented all of the various rooms Amanda has to offer. The 6 of us who stayed at Casita Carinosa all really enjoyed ourselves, and the house was perfect for what we needed. The pool & newly refinished deck was the perfect place to hang out in the mornings and early afternoon before heading out to explore the island. Amanda is fantastic, and made our trip so easy. She coordinated our pickup from the airport to the ferry, and then was waiting when we arrived on the island to assist with getting our bags to the house. We also very easily coordinated the same in reverse for our trip home. I can 100% say we will stay with Amanda again when we return to the island.
Showers had very low pressure and not much hot water. Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Location is good and Amanda is helpful and quick to respond to any questions.
What a shame that Kevin didn't think to mention the low pressure when he was here as, now that I have read his review, I have been able to get to the bottom of the problem and he would have been a little more comfortable. With the full pressure the hot water works properly too. I am sorry that the beds were not to his liking though. I have found getting beds to match everyone's needs is almost impossible and went with the firm orthopedic ones with a 2 inch topper. If you like a really soft bed perhaps my place is not for you. Thanks for the review though so I could rectify one of the problems for the next guests. Amanda
Amanda has created a lovely guest house
Amanda is very helpful answering questions and making sure all details are taken care of including taxi from the airport, pick-up at ferry terminal, etc.
Location on Caye Caulker is excellent. Most restaurants 5 - 8 min walk. Split is about 10 mins if you walk with purpose...which is not you should do on Caye Caulker.
Sleeps 5 - 6 comfortably.
Bedrooms each have good AC - much needed at night time.
Cost is very much in-line with similar properties on the Caye.
Would be excellent for parents with kids traveling along.
What to consider:
Kitchen / living room area and the main bathroom remain very warm all day despite having windows open. Not a huge problem as when on Caye Caulker one should not remain indoors anyway!
Street lamps and the light on the AC units prevent the rooms from ever getting dark. The window shades are not black out shades.
Given the location you do hear people walking down the street at night though this is really a minor issue.
Pool area is very small with little space to lay out - additionally the ocean breezes do not reach this area so can be a very hot spot.
Just an awesome place, came down with my family and everybody had a great time.
Place was awesome and worked out exactly as planned. Everyone had their privacy but everyone could get together in the common room. We will be back soon!
Good Location, Responsive host
We rented all 3 rooms, it was clean. the pool is shared with the other rooms in the compound, so it is not private. Amanda is very friendly and helpful. A little bit noisy at night, in the far end room, but that is what you get when you are right in the middle of things- Pasta Per Caso is delicious and 75 feet away. Yum!
Go Slow So That You Have Time To Enjoy Amanda's Place
There were 8 people that stayed for 2 weeks at Amanda's Place and everyone had a good time and enjoyed the hospitality of the island. Actually one couple ended up adopting a little dog from the shelter who had a tough journey in his life. Amanda was real helpful in expediting his trip back to the states. Amanda was real helpful with any other questions or needs that we had. The two weeks went fast but was pleasant for the most part. The pool was a plus too. We all spent a lot of time around there.
The only negative things that we noticed was the noise late at night since her place was right on the street. The blinds in the bedrooms really didn't block out the light from the streets. Could use a little updating of kitchen pots and pans. Overall, the place was enjoyable and we would stay there again.
Caye Caulker er lille! Det er omkring 2 miles lang, om en mile nederst brede og øverst en simpel par hundrede fod. Det er formen på et komma. Den væsentligste del af øen er den centrale til nord sektioner, hvor hoteller, private hjem, købmandsforretninger, restauranter og barer er. Der er masser af dem alle. Der er ingen mærkenavn butikker her, bare små individuelle virksomheder. Revet er 1/2 mil offshore mod øst og giver de fleste af de "hvad man skal gøre er '. Snorkle, fiske, svømme, jet ski, vandski, kajak osv er alle her. Vandet er lavt ved kysten og kun omkring 15 fod med revet. De rolige farvande levere fremragende grobund for hummer og konkylie. Dovne dage kan forventes, og med rette! Der er altid noget at gøre, og fastlandet ture til Maya ruinerne, junglen, hulen systemer og bavian og Jaguar helligdomme er nemme at sortere ud også!
