Staying at Pause is a real pause from the ordinary tourist track. With your own private deck, a boat roof to enjoy the sunset from, and a clean, fully equipped studio flat to call your home in Caye Caulker - what more could you ask for?
Friendly helpful hostess? - Check!
Free coconuts? - Check!
Best sunset spot on the island? - Check check!
Staying with Madi was great - the place is very clean, she herself is very informative and helpful, and being on the west side, you get the sunset, unlike many other places that are on the 'main street'. Caye Caulker is so small, being "on the other side" is literally 2 short blocks away - another bonus is that it's on the leeward side so the nightly 'storms' don't bother you at all. The beachfront flat is also air-conditioned, so very comfortable.
There are plenty of pets here, it is a cat sanctuary, after all. Madi offers this accommodation to pay for cat food, but despite having 85 of them, she's certainly not your ordinary Crazy Cat Lady ;-) Very welcoming, very helpful and kind.
The dogs were absolutely lovely too!
I loved staying at Pause, it felt closer to 'real' Belizean life than I think most other places ever will.
You might want to bring earplugs, in case there's a sad cat around, otherwise you're definitely in your own private bit of Caye Caulker bliss at Pause.
Loved it here!
