“Excellent Hosts! Beautiful views!”
Reviewed 20 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

While Wish Willy’s is technically in Santa Elena it is a very easy walk to San Ignacio and everything you could need. Julie and Gary go out of their way to ensure your trip goes smoothly including assisting with setting up tours and transportation. They even gave us a tour of town when we first arrived and had lots of helpful tips like how much cabs cost and the best way to get around. Their property overlooks the river and we saw multiple large green iguanas during our stay! Overall it was an excellent stay

“Amazing views!!!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Julie and Gary are the best AirBNB hosts! They are kind, fun, and welcoming. We loved our 3 night stay at Wish Willy. The room was spacious and clean. The property is well located, beautiful, and very secure. Walking distance from the river, the market, and a grocery store for essentials. Their dogs are very friendly and playful. Thank you again Julie and Gary for the wonderful experience! :) Anita & David

“Excellent accommodations and amazing hospitality!”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We absolutely loved our stay with Julie and Gary in Santa Elena! They were incredible hosts - as soon as we arrived they welcomed us into their home. Julie took us on a tour of the towns, to the ATM, pointed out the great restaurants and bakeries and even took us to the grocery store to shop!! Their property is so beautiful, overlooking the river and San Ignacio. Perfect for a romantic getaway and enough space to bring the whole family! They even have inner tubes and kayaks if you want to explore the river. We highly recommend staying with them on your visit to San Ignacio/Santa Elena!

“Fantastic hosts, location and cabana!!!!”
Reviewed 9 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We loved our stay at Wish Willy's. We spent 10 days and the location is perfect for us to easily get to and from all the amazing ruins and sights in the area. Gated property was perfect for our rental car. A./C is the bedroom was perfect, but sleeping with the windows open listening to the parrots, toucans and other birds is a fantastic way to start the day. Fish and otters in the river below, iguanas and squirrels in the trees above... a nature's lover paradise. Julie & Gary are great hosts and full of information. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip.

Thanks for making our trip so memorable!

“Beautiful apartment, wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 29 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This place is now known as Wish Willy River Cabanas and is owned by Julie and Gary who were amazing hosts to my new husband and me. On arrival we celebrated with a drink on their scenic porch and then Julie drove us around the area so we could get oriented. The apartment was perfect for us, little kitchenette and a nice patio where we had multiple meals and coffee. There is air conditioning in the bedroom which is a saving grace for being in the jungle. San Ignacio is across the river and we walked there for shopping, meals and to experience Belizean living. The walk is short but taxis are also plentiful. I never felt unsafe during my stay here. This was a wonderful experience for both of us. It was HOT but the river is right behind the apartment to cool down with tubes or the kayak. We absolutely loved our stay here!!
