We went to Caye Caulker as part of a two week backpacking trip through Guatemala and Belize, without much of a plan as to accomodations as we went. Caye Caulker was our final stop on our trip, and after a bit of walking, we found this place along the beach, almost to the end. We talked to Colin and got a rate quote, which wasn't bad at all. Being the pervasive bargain shoppers we are, we told him we were going to go take a look at the next set of cabanas down the beach. He chuckled, and told us "go check them out, and I'll see you guys back here in a few minutes." Not in a condescending way, just a fun way.
Sure enough, we were back in 4 minutes.
We ended up with a condo on the floor above his office, which looked out onto the ocean, and had a nice breeze blowing in off the water. The A/C unit was awesome, and our every need was met. He let us borrow his snorkel equipment for free, and we spent a large amount of time in the two large, comfortable hammocks at the end of the pier on the beachfront.
