We arrived via foot from the airport and Juan, the care-taker, immediately showed us our room and made us feel at home. He gave the low down on Caye Caulker and marked-up a map for us. The owners couldn't have hired a better guy to run the place in their absence, granted Colin was in and out at while we were there.
I love the fact that there is a full kitchen and fridge. It's nice to fix your own food as opposed to always going out to eat...sometimes ya just wanna chill and take in the view.
We enjoyed the place, Colin is a fun loving guy that is willing to help and wants to be sure you are set-up (Juan too). Personally, I really liked the fact that it is not smack in the middle of town. It's just on the fringes that make it feel like you are away from it all though you are only a 2 minute bike ride away.
Only low was that there was a nasty stink from the sea grass that had accumilated on the shore, that Colin and Juan both quickly shoveled up and dispersed of and solved the problem. Well done lads!!
Would we go back? Absolutely!!
