“Perfect Christmas Vacation”
Reviewed 5 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017
people found this review helpful

From the moment you step off the plane Tony,Alfred, and Dianne have helped you plan your wonderful vacation. We picked up wine and liquor in the duty free store and were met by the boat transfer in front of airport. They loaded the luggage and were happy to stop by the grocery store on way to marina.
The boat transfer was beautiful and a great way to start relaxing. The boat takes you directly to the house where you are met by Alfred. He and Dianne will have the house all prepared and if you have Dianne cook the welcome meal she can have the house stocked with all the essentials.
Dianne’s meals are fabulous and would recommend her cooking for at least the welcome meal. Her meals are the best tasting and best valve on the island.
Alfred had 2 golf carts waiting on us and helped us plan our daily excursions to include Caye Caulker, snorkeling, fishing and diving.
We enjoyed afternoon snacks and drinks at Rojo bar just a few steps north. Mambo and Rain were our favorite restaurants... these are close by. Cannot miss a meal at the Sundeck cafe... Jamaican jerk meal. San Pedro town is a 20-30 minute drive south. There is a toll to cross the bridge into town. $2.50 US each way. There is a lot to see in town and worth the trip but not necessary as everything you need is available north of town.
Last but not least is Poe. He will visit daily and loves a belly rub.
I have traveled world and this was a very special vacation. This is primarily due to the care that Alfred and Dianne take to make sure you have a fabulous time. Cheers to Tony, Alfredo and Dianne. Until next time.

“Wonderful, Fantastic, Beautiful.”
Reviewed 21 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

“Perfect” place to celebrate 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grand kids, 7 of us, 5 adults 2 kids, 8 & 10.

First saw photos of the house on line, searching for a place to stay, the photos looked great!

And when we arrived and saw everything in person, “WOW”, it was even better than the photos on line showed. NOW THAT JUST DOESN”T HAPPEN very often.

Everything was perfect, very well kept property, house, pool, grounds. WONDERFUL

Enjoyed the large covered front veranda, comfortable, shady place to sit and watch grandkids swim in the pool and see across the beautiful aqua blue ocean at the same time.

The Grass roof covered patio, close to pool, was nice, has large dinning table, small frig, for beverages and sink.

The two large covered balconies on the second floor, front and back, perfect for sitting out, dinning and enjoying a view of the water. FANTASTIC

Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen.
Daytime there is a wonderful breeze that comes though the house.
AC, (only used it at night).

Care takers Alfred & wife Diane and Christian do a wonderful job.

Diane food was delicious. First night Diane cooked the Belize national Sunday meal for us. “Stewed chicken, rice and beans, potato salad and fried plantains”. Also had her kabobs one evening. Her food was “ DELICIOUS” and each time we had enough for another meal.

Being able to stay at the house and have delicious home cooked meals was fantastic.
Thanks Diane! LOVE your potato salad! Wish we could have brought some back to US, with us.

Christian for keeping the grounds so nice and clean. THANK YOU!
Lots of sea weed washes up on the beach, along this side of the island.
But Christian did a wonderful job of cleaning it up, several times a day.

Alfred and his pleasant personality, goes out of his way to help you with what you need & want.

Last but not least, Thanks to the owner Tony, for the wonderful house.

“Perfect place for families!”
Reviewed 22 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017
person found this review helpful

Baja Mar is a beautiful beach house that was ideal for our two families with six adult children. There were ten of us, in all, and the five bedrooms and five bathrooms proved to be an ideal set-up, especially with the extensive outdoor areas to congregate in. With a group of ten adults, it's important to have plenty of room and privacy and Baja Mar provided both. The house is in a great location, close to fun restaurants and bars but far away enough from town that you feel you're away from it all. Another huge asset that comes with this house is the the dynamic duo of Alfred and Dianie. Alfred, the caretaker, literally takes care of everything! He had golf carts waiting for us(the best and most fun way to get to town), set up our snorkeling and fishing excursions, set up dinner plans for us and was a great source of advice and help. Dianie cooked for us three different nights and it was such a treat, very reasonable prices and delicious meals. It's a nice thing to do the first and last nights you're there. Alfred also arranged for massages at the house one day that were some of the best we've ever had. As far as transportation, we took a water taxi over and flew back and we all far preferred flying. There are safes in the room which is helpful with passports and valuables, we felt very safe the entire time and met lovely people. In the morning, people would ride down the beach selling breakfast burritos and tamales which we always took advantage of, less cooking and cleaning up! We always go to a different warm weather spot every year and for the first time ever, we are thinking of returning to the same place because Baja Mar was that good!!!

“Everything As Advertised & More”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016
person found this review helpful

When we planned our Belize trip, we chose Ambergris Caye (island) & soon found Casa BajaMar. Search Over!! BajaMar's a beautiful, custom built, 2 story, 5 BR, 5 Bath "villa" on its own secluded beach (raked daily) opening onto the crystal clear Caribbean & renowned Belize Barrier Reef, a short kayak paddle away. When I heard from owner Tony Whitehouse, & property mgr. Alfred Chable, I knew we'd made the right choice. After all the "1st time tourist" questions, Tony & Alfred said "don't worry, we'll take care of everything", and they did. From our Nautilus water taxi team meeting us on arrival @ Belize Airport to our return 9 days later, all was friendly, professional & on time. We & our luggage were taken straight to the boat for a 1 hr ride up the coast (w/complimentary rum punch), to San Pedro marina (Ambergris' biggest & only city). From there, another 20 minutes up the coastline to BajaMar's private dock where Alfred, "PO" the wonder dog & staff welcomed us. We were on vacation in paradise. Later we enjoyed a Chef Dianie homemade "welcome dinner" that was tremendous. A variety of "catch of the day" seafood, fresh vegetables, great corn & rice, plus iced Biliken Beer. Alfred also supplied coffee, fresh pastries, milk, orange juice, etc for the next morning. He also arranged for two 4 person golf carts, fully gassed, for our 8 day stay (price was right). Be sure to schedule a snorkeling trip to Chol Han with "Coral Divers". Capt “Genie” & 1st Mate Reuben were great, beautiful sea life & then lunch on Caye Caulker. Alfred will sched. Ambergris also has nice places to eat & drink, hop in your golf cart & ask Belize's friendly people. You’ll find BajaMar hard to leave though. A book & beverage under the palapa or on 1 of the spacious front porches may be all the vacation you need.
Rely on Tony & Alfred for advice. Their #1 concern is your enjoyment. In closing, you’ll feel no pressure to pay more than the actual cost of things that Alfred arranges, but I’m sure you will want to show your thanks as we did for our new friend. Enjoy your Casa BajaMar adventure. R.S. Colorado

“11 People Family Trip”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Alfred and Dianie made for an excellent family trip to Belize. Their recommendations were all terrific. We stayed comfortable in all the rooms with privacy, yet enough large outdoor spaces to all be together at one time. We took advantage of Dianie's meals. Which we think are the best on the island. Spot on cleanliness, and attentiveness by the entire crew. Including the freshly racked beach everyone morning. Keep up the good work. If you get a chance, ask Alfred about bottle ball. It's the best game on the island! But Dianie is better than Alfred.

“Fantastic House”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2015
person found this review helpful

9 of us stayed in this house last summer and it was fantastic. The house is clean and spacious. All the rooms have their own AC. The 3 suites on the bottom floor are same level as the pool which sits directly on the beach. Alfred and his wife do a great job tending to any of your needs. She will cook for you every night if you wish or just pick a night or two. Make sure to get golf carts so you can head into town and to also look around the island some.
