2. on the water with a pool

3. less than $6000 for 10 days in August 2013

4. can kayak out to the reef for snorkeling

5. clean and not run down

We will be traveling with kids and adults.

Thanks everyone for any help.

There are a couple of places on VRBO that come close to your criteria. Check out http://www.vrbo.com/137649. It's 5 miles north of San Pedro but it appears to accommodate all your requests except for a kayak. Another choice to look at on VRBO, http://www.vrbo.com/54583

We walked from south of San Pedro up north to the Lazy Croc today for lunch. Walked by several rental properties.

In addition to the management company Katie mentioned above, we also saw several listed by Belize Management.


A couple of comments on your list of 'wants'. The further north you get on Ambergris the closer you will be to the reef. I live a mile south of town, and people do kayak to the reef from here.

As you get further north, you get further away from grocery stores. There is a store just north of the bridge. There is a small store about 4-5 miles north at Mata Grande. I've never been in it, don't know much they stock.

Most of the grocery stores are in town, or not far south of town. So are the bakeries, and the meat stores. Same for the produce stands.

South of town has easier access to town, the road is paved a couple of miles going south. Further south than that, it still isn't too bad. Right now the road is pretty good until at least Grand Caribe (about 1 1/2 miles north).

Once you get north of there, the 'road' conditions depend on the weather. Any more than about four miles north, your transportation to town will realistically be by boat.

We rented this place for 2014 http://www.vrbo.com/445946

Since we haven't stayed there yet, I can't tell you if it matches the reviews, but I've had good luck with most vrbo properties and it fits most of your criteria.
