“Great place to stay - quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

We stayed here with our two daughters and loved it. It was everything we were looking for - quiet, safe and clean. Kim of Caye Caulker Rentals did a great job of arranging everything - our transition from the airport was seamless. Picololo is in what we thought was the perfect location. Just to the south of town it felt really safe and secure and was very quiet and peaceful. Yet with the bikes that Hillary and Pike provided for us we were able to be in the town in just a few minutes. In fact, biking into town just added to our Caye Caulker experience. The suite itself was spotless, the private yard was raked clean daily. Hillary and Pike were great hosts -there to help us if we needed it, but not intrusive in any way. We'd highly recommend Picololo to anyone visiting Caye Caulker.

Just returned from our fourth visit to CC and our second stay at Picololo. What we liked -- clean studio apartment with everything you need to set up house for your visit; quiet neighborhood and street - apartment set back from street very little traffic noise; safe -- owners live on site and someone around most times; friendly, helpful owners -- Pike (owner) is very cheerful, engaging and a wealth of knowledge about things to do on the island; bikes - a great feature even though you can walk to the Split (north end) in 25 minutes in a go slow stroll. Not sure why this isn't listed under vacation rentals in Trip Advisor? We made our reservations through Caye Caulker Rentals but I believe you can also go directly through the owners picololo@gmail.com

We found Picololo through Caye Caulker rental property listings, and were so glad we did! The lovely owners (Hilary and Pike) live right upstairs, so the property is very well cared-for. The location is quiet south end and felt very safe and private. The free bikes were great to use, and the apartment itself is roomy and extremely comfortable (especially the bed) and includes a full-size and well-stocked kitchen. We highly recommend Picololo to anyone traveling to Caye Caulker who wants access to the amenities and restaurants of the island, but wants to come "home" each night to a quiet apartment rather than a standard motel.

My long-term girlfriend and I traveled around Belize for a few weeks. When we arrived on Caye Caulker, we were seeking some much-needed R&R - the very same that Caye Caulker is quite famous for. When we first arrived, our accommodations were sub-par, to say the very least (the place shall remain nameless). We had seen the Caye Caulker Rentals office on Front Street, and we decided to give it a go. Fortunately, the nice folks at CCR (very accommodating and friendly) found availability at the PicoLolo, just south of town. After a lovely 3-minute bike ride south of the main drag, we arrived at Miss Judy's PicoLolo and instantly fell in love with the place.

Enclosed in a gated property with 2 entrances, PicoLolo has a small handful of apartments for rent that certainly cater towards the "chill" crowd. As Miss Judy showed us around, she told us that each apartment rental came with free bike rental for everyone staying, which we used THOROUGHLY (it's so much fun to ride on Caye Caulker). Also, Miss Judy offered to drive us anywhere we needed to go on the island - via her handy golf cart - pro bono, anytime. She had even heard we were from Seattle, so she put an espresso machine in our room with a cup full of Seattle's Best Coffee... and this was only 10 minutes after knowing us!

Our room was very clean and cute (and quiet). The kitchen area was great; the plates were clean, the cutlery was quite functional, and there was soap to clean the dishes off to keep the bugs away. The bathroom was tiled and clean, complete with hot & cold water (etc.). The A/C was perfect (and much needed during our stay, as it was the rainy and humid season). If we needed anything, Miss Judy was there to accommodate - even an early morning toilet paper run, or an emergency late night dry towel.

Next time we come to Caye Caulker, we will definitely stay with Miss Judy at PicoLolo. We cannot recommend it higher!

Room Tip: Take a tour of the place - Miss Judy will show you around!
