My husband and I could not have been more happy with our choice of place to stay for two weeks on Caye Caulker. Cindy and Don were marvelous hosts who were gracious about sharing their own travel experiences with us; the place was bright, clean and wonderfully appointed with conservation-minded provisions; and their place -- being the farthest south on the path from town -- was mercifully distant from the action but close enough to join. John had a screened porch with a view of the sea from which to work on writing his second book, and I had a private dock and palapa, complete with floatie, from which to listen to podcasts, write in my journal and read back issues of my favorite magazine. Trips to town were either $10 US each way by golf cart taxi or free with the bicycles provided -- we are in our 50s and had no problem at all using provided headlamps to get home from town, even with a few frozen sangrias under our belts. With any luck we will be back.

If you're looking for a quiet spot to stay on Caye Caulker, then book this immediately. Beautifully decorated with all you'll need (we especially appreciated the kitchenette with plenty of cookware, bathroom stocked with lovely products and board games) it also has a private dock. I could not recommend this spot more, and have to shoutout to the owners Don and Cindy. Always friendly, accommodating, and so helpful, they're the best hosts you could ask for. I almost wish I hasn't been so I could discover it for the first time all over again.

Die Unterkunft liegt als letztes Haus im Süden von Caye Caulker. Wir suchten und fanden die absolute Entspannung. Zum nächsten Restaurant sind es ca. 20 Minuten Fußmarsch. Mit dem vom Vermieter zur Verfügung gestellten (total verrostete) Fahrrad 10 Minuten zum nächsten Supermarkt. Die Vermieter sind sehr zurückhaltend und dennoch immer hilfsbereit. Also der passende Ort um sich mal zurückzuziehen. Die drei Lieben Hunde passen gut auf , dass niemand dem Anwesen zu nahe kommt. Der ins mehr führende Steg mit einer Plattform am Ende ist ideal, den Sonnenuntergang bei einem guten Cocktail zu genießen. Allerdings, und dafür können die Vermieter natürlich nichts, gibt es ein großes Umweltproblem: Das Schwimmen macht wegen der großen Tangansammlung an den Stränden und insbesondere auch im Stegbereich keinen Spaß. Oft ist auch der Modergeruch zu stark. Von klarem Karibikwasser nichts zu sehen. Zudem sammeln sich Unmengen von Plastikabfällen im Tang. Deshalb muss ich wohl 2 Sterne abziehen.

Claudia, I was surprised when I saw that you subtracted 2 stars, but I feel you reviewed Caye Caulker Island itself more so than our rental apartment. I agree that the sea weed sargassum problem is awful, and it is affecting every island in the Caribbean, and Government must do something about it, but it also appears to be cyclic, as of today December 15/2018 there is none! That's not to say it won't be back, but it's out of my control. I do apologize for the rusty bikes, we live on the sea and rust is a part of life here, and causes continual maintenance. 2 of those bikes are less than 2 years old believe it or not. We will replace them of course. Thank you. Cindy, Comfortably Numb

We just loved our stay here; thanks so much to Cindy and Don for welcoming us so graciously into their home! Cindy arranged the transfer from the airport perfectly and from that moment on it was pure relaxation for 3 weeks! The flat is so lovely especially the screeed terrace and, of course, the dock! Two restaurants that Cindy recommended are quite near and really great if you don’t want to go into the center everyday. We enjoyed the opportunity of having the choice of peace and calmness at the house and the lively vibe of the center of the island that was fun to walk or bike to. Thanks again to our wonderful hosts!

My husband and I had the privilege of spending a week at Comfortably Numb. What a place!! The description, though truly accurate, doesn’t hold a candle to how truly amazing this place is! Don and Cindy were so helpful when we needed some local advice but were also very respectful or our privacy and personal space. We did so much exploring in our time there and truly believe this is the best spot on the island. Far enough away to not feel the crowds but close enough to access anything we needed. We’ve traveled all over the Caribbean and both agree this was in our top 5. The private dock and the bikes were the cherry on top. You will not be disappointed with the island, the accommodations and their sweet property pups, Beans and Rice. We can’t wait to go back!! Thank you for having us!!

Great place. I wanted to find a place on Caye Caulker to just hang out a bit, do some fishing, and generally lounging around. Cindy and Don have created just the spot. This place is very well done and super clean. The water is right there with your own private dock. I was there with my dad as part of an extended trip throughout Belize. But this is an excellent place for a couple to get away. Don and Cindy are such friendly and excellent hosts (thank you both!). We didn't really go anywhere, but despite being literally at the end of the road, you can get to town quickly and easily via bike, cart, or walking. Bottom line, if you like a really neat place to slip away and enjoy island life, this place should certainly be on your shortlist.

Scott, this makes me smile, thank you. I love that you and your Dad were content just to chill here (not even going to town) you felt at home. It confirms that we're doing something right.

My husband and I stayed here for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. Don and Cindy are very nice, helpful hosts.The apartment was clean and comfortable. My husband was not used to being without AC, but we did ok. It's a great off the grid place. We rented a golf cart for the week and was very glad we did. We were all over the island and by the end of the week felt as if we knew a lot of people. We went fishing twice with Ash at French Angel Expeditions and had the time of our lives. My husband caught lobster and by the end of the week we had our fill of eating lobster. We were also there for the Lobster Festival and that had the island hopping. We had a wonderful time and recommend a vacation there.

I feel so blessed to have found Cindy & Don's place. We had another placed booked. Unfortunately, the property manager had a family emergency. We couldn't get into the property. Don & Cindy happen to live a few places down from the property. They saw we were having some problems and not going to be able to access the property. Don graciously invited us to there rental. They happened to have no quests for the duration of our stay. Believe me after our long travels to get there we were so relieved to know we had a place to stay. Their place was amazing !!!!!! It was like having the island all to yourself.. Very private. Walk way out to the ocean. You can just sit for hours and look out into that huge gorgeous blue ocean. The home was adorable and had all the amenities we needed. You can ride the bikes into the village or have Don or Cindy call a golf cart taxi. Oh, I loved Beans and Rice. Not the eating kind. The two lovely dogs they have.They were wonderful to have around and make you feel at home. I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. It will be a memory we will cherish for the rest of our life's. We will be back again someday. If your looking for a relaxing serene atmosphere . Look no further. We were certainly comfortably numb. Hated to leave. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. GOD BLESS YOU BOTH, JIM & CHERI

Best place to end our trip to Belize. Don, Cindy, Rice and Beans were great hosts. Arranging snorkeltrips, a taxi etc. The house at the end of the road/island is awesome, a nice deck, a nice porch, great sea view and more. To get to town, just use the bikes, its just 10-15 minutes. Is you`re looking for an of the grid accommodation to get into the chill vibe of the island, go here!

This little slice of heaven is at the end of the island, away from all the tourist accommodations. It's the quiet, peaceful setting we were hoping for. When we wanted to head into town there were bikes available on the property to use, which was super convenient. The apartment is thoughtfully decorated and you can tell the owners take great pride in maintaining it. Don and Cindy helped us arrange our taxis and were great hosts. Awesome way to end our vacation and experience Caye Caulker. Would definitely stay here again!

About the neighbourhood
Our place is located in a residential part of the island locally known as South Point. Our house is the last house on the golf cart path from the Village a 10-15 min bike ride,and 15 min golf cart taxi ride. We are totally off-grid and rely on Solar power and rain water catchment, and while conservation is expected, you might not even notice and will want for nothing in our Eco-Chic boutique apartment. We are directly ocean front, you will have an awesome view from the screened in porch and deck. We have a brand new dock for fishing or swimming or having a cocktail and watching the sunset!
How to get there
We will have a golf cart taxi waiting at the water taxi dock for you and can arrange pickup at Belize International Airport also. I contact my guests before arrival to make arrangements
