Beautiful and private
Happy returning guest here! My wife and I have spent quite a bit of time in Belize and on the Cayes, and this is our second stay at this awesome off-the-grid house. We have stayed in a couple of hotels in the village of Caye Caulker and also other private houses, and we think this is the best 'bang for our buck' because of the huge amount of personal private space this place has. Yes, it's a bit far from town (15 or 20 min bike ride) which can be challenging if its raining, but honestly its those cool experiences like riding our bikes home in the rain through the tropical rain forest that lead us to come back to Belize and not Cancun. The views and remoteness of this house set it apart from other personal rentals, and we have appreciated that the owners are very communicative and make sure that we know what to expect and who to contact if we need help. The caretaker Mac was awesome and had a lot of interesting stories. We will be back next year!
Indigo Pearl is certainly secluded as described. We chose this for exactly that reason. We enjoyed the covered 3rd floor porch with wonderful views of the Caribbean Sea and the lagoon right in front of the house. We could watch the fish and the crocodiles from our vantage point. We observed many different birds and identified them with the help of the book there, "Birds of Belize." That was delightful as we have not been "birders." We had no issues with the solar powered electricity. Linda was remarkably helpful with all her emails and advice prior to our arrival. That helped us feel comfortable from the beginning. If we get back to Caye Caulker, we would certainly consider staying here again.
We are so happy that you loved the seclusion and the excellent view from the top floor as much as we do. The privacy is something a traveler certainly won't find in the town area. No blaring music, no firecrackers, no barking dogs - none of that is nearby. The best guests are as you were - familiar with being remote and willing to be adventurous. We do not desire to rent our house out "as much as possible" Instead, we desire to rent our house out to other like-minded people - guests who appreciate oceanfront seclusion, privacy, peace and quiet, bike riding, adventure, and "something different" and unique. Thank you for your kind words~
My husband and I truly enjoyed our time at Indigo Pearl
The place was just as described. It met our needs perfectly. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. I even enjoyed using the cookbooks provided. We had no issues being off the grid. We are conservers by nature, but always had lights, hot showers, etc. Mack and Rebecca were there to get us started and although we didn’t need attention from them, we knew they were at the ready should a need arise. The bikes provided were invaluable. We so enjoyed our rides in and out of town. What a perfect way to travel. Views are great also. Sand fleas did eat us even though we tried the mentioned remedies but that’s just Mother Nature. If you like being off the beaten path and a little “roughing it” this is the place for you.
The two of you were a perfect fit for our house! You enjoyed being off grid, you liked the fact that we are not located right in town, and you enjoyed the use of the bikes that we provide for our guests! In exchange for not being right in town, you got one of the absolute best views of the sea on the entire island, peace and quiet, privacy and good exercise so that you can eat whatever you like. I'm glad you used the cookbooks I've put together - I've included many traditional Belizian dishes and recipes for seafood dishes too. I hope you can come again for another stay some day ~
Isolated Island Jungle Bliss
This place was perfect for the two of us. We wanted something simple and off the beaten path where we could chill and slow down: we got exactly that. Linda was very upfront about that and helpful in providing us with useful tidbits about getting what you need on the Island.
- slow gorgeous bike rides to and from town
- grilling lobster we bought directly from fisherman near Fisherman's Coop
- sand flies and mosquitoes
- couldn't swim in the the bay in front of the house; super mucky and shallow
Thank you for your kind review! We do everything we can to insure that our guests have a great stay. Yes, some things are beyond the control of anyone on Caye Caulker, such as the sandfies (that come out mainly just at dawn and dusk,) and the fact that the close proximity of the barrier reef prevents any measurable sand from washing in to the island shores. (Actually, I can't think of a single rental property on the entire island where you can just walk right in to the water from nice sand. It just doesn't exist.) If a Caye Caulker rental has a "beach" it is most likely a seawall beach, which is sand brought in, but with no access to the water itself. That is even the way it is at The Split. The only place where you find a typical beach of sorts on Caye Caulker is in the center of town, where you will see one or two small public beach areas.IF you love snorkeling, sailing, fishing, scuba and abundant peace, quiet, and relaxation, then our place is perfect for you!
I totally agree with you regarding the love of the beauty and peace of the bike ride to town. The pathway is full of interesting plants and birds and the sea follows all along the path. I go on a bike ride every day that I am there. So yes, the bikes are a great feature.
And I'm happy that you loved the location of our house - that it is indeed off the "beaten path" You don't have the noises of town such as late night music. We value our privacy and it sounds like you did too. Come back again and enjoy the beautiful views from our balcony and the total immersion in relaxation! Thanks!!!
Private and comfortable with spectacular views!
We so enjoyed our stay at The Indigo Pearl. We loved Caye Caulker, we loved the bikes being our mode of transportation, we loved the grill, and we loved playing Yahtzee by candlelight. This property was clean and perfect for our home-base. We lost electricity quite a bit, but that’s where the candles came in! Mack, the caretaker, was available and beyond helpful. I misbooked our dates and Joe and Linda graciously offered to extend our stay...a pretty sweet touch especially when traveling in a foreign country. We truly loved it all!
Thank you for the kind words ~ we're so glad that you loved your stay. We heard from Rebecca and Mack that you were very happy. Thanks for taking good care of the house and we hope you can come back soon ~
Indigo Pearl -- EXACTLY what we were looking for!
We have been back to the states (MA) for only a few days, and are already talking about our next trip to Belize, and specifically Caye Caulker. Our experience was fantastic, and all of the information provided by Linda before our trip (in addition to answering all of my questions) was invaluable as we both planned our visit, and lived each moment on the island to its fullest! My initial conversation with Joe was interesting, and useful -- as he had to "size us up" to determine if we could handle this unique vacation home. If you are looking for an adventure -- are in reasonably good health (can walk or bike), you will love your stay at Indigo Pearl. We had not ridden bikes for 20+ years, but had no problem riding into town 2-3 times every day. The house was perfect for our needs -- lots of hot water, functional kitchen, great views, clean and comfortable. We loved the seclusion, and didn't even notice we were "off-the-grid" (although we were aware enough to conserve both water and power).
The Indigo Pearl gave us the perfect home base to enjoy Caye Caulker. We felt like "locals" from our first night there, enjoying dinner at Fran's (unlimited coconut rum punch doesn't hurt either!). In general, the food was great -- from street vendors (you must find the "cake lady" across the basketball court) to the many restaurants in town. If you want to do your own cooking, we loved buying food at Chicken Depot (although they were often out of shrimp) and several other stores in town. The rum and hot sauce was plentiful and GREAT!
Perhaps the biggest surprise for us though -- was the quality of the snorkeling. Caveman Snorkeling might be the best "tour" on the planet -- and we have been on snorkeling tours in Australia (Great Barrier Reef), Hawaii, Caribbean, and Florida, but nothing beat what we experienced with Caveman Snorkeling. The barrier reef (evidently second largest) was vibrant, and alive (parts of Australia's barrier reef is dying), and much to my surprise, really easy to get to from Caye Caulker. We swam with sharks, rays, turtles, and lots of reef fish, and could not have been happier with the day we had (and it was supposedly a "rough" day out with more wind than normal). If we were in town for more than a week, we would have probably gone out another day or two!
The bottom line is that we loved our time on Caye Caulker and at the Indigo Pearl, and look forward to our next trip back! It was quite the perfect adventure for us!
Øen Caye Caulker er helt unik. Der er kun 3 vigtigste nord / syd gader, og alle er sand. Ingen brolagte gader. Meget få biler / lastbiler er operationelle på hele øen. Langt den vigtigste transport er ved golf cart, cykel, eller til fods. I byen er der flere gode vejledninger for fiskeri, snorkling og scuba ture. Disse ture plus stille enkle liv i Caye Caulker er de vigtigste attraktioner i denne ø. Du vil møde mennesker fra hele verden! Det kan tage dig en dag at få akklimatiseret til den ubekymrede tempo i Caye Caulker, men inden længe øen motto "Go Slow" vil blive din mantra også. Tag det roligt, ikke får alt for ophidset og slappe af og nyde! De lokale folk her er ikke i en fart på alle!
Hvis du går til Google Maps på computeren og skrive i Caye Caulker, Belize vil du se vores hus og lang mole i den sydlige (sydvestlige faktisk) spids af øen! Det er nær den lille ø lund af mangrover (en cirkulær prik) lige ud for kysten i den lille fjord der.
