The SpaceThis condo is located on two floors of Building A, which faces the pool & the sea. On the ground floor, there's a porch with a view to the pool, a bedroom with queen bed, a full bathroom, full kitchen, and living/dining area with queen sleeper sofa. On the 2nd floor, there's a bedroom with a queen bed, a full bathroom, a loft area with 2 twin beds, and a veranda overlooking the pool and the sea.
The Belize Barrier Reef is only ½ mile (1 km) away and you can see the waves crashing over it from the resort. Soak up the view from the veranda or the beach!
Because this condo is on two levels, two couples or a larger group of people will find that there is some privacy still, even while all under one roof.
Enjoy wireless internet, phone, central air conditioning, ceiling fans, cable TV, and tiled floors throughout. You’ll have a fabulous vacation here! Guest AccessAt Sunset Beach Resort, you have access to:
•200 feet of sandy beach
•a pier with “palapa”, swim ladder, and swimming/snorkeling area with floating tubes & small artificial reef
•a fresh water pool (with “bar stools” at one end so you have easy access to the outdoor dining area while still in the pool)
•hammocks & hardwood beach lounging furniture
•Covered outdoor dining area
•Complimentary kayaks (single & double)
There is so much offered – please make sure you have time to take advantage of everything, but most of all make sure you have time to relax in one of our hammocks on the beach! ☺
And should you need to do laundry, there is a token-operated washer and dryer on the premises (or a pick up/drop off laundry service can be arranged). Interaction with GuestsOnce booked, I’ll send you a multi-page document with further information on the condos, the resort, and the area. And of course I’m happy to answer any questions at all via email or phone!
In addition, you are connected with our concierge who can help you with island flights, golf cart bookings, tours, etc. Our concierge is from the U.S. but has lived on Ambergris Caye for several years and can answer any questions you may have before your arrival and during your stay! We also have an on site caretaker at the resort who can help with any questions or issues that may arise. The NeighborhoodAmbergris Caye, “La Isla Bonita”, is a popular tourist destination. San Pedro is a quaint little town of about 13,000 residents that has retained its charm while handling the growing number of visitors. Sunset Beach Resort is located 2.5 miles/4 km south of the town core, which means you are away from the crowds yet still within easy reach of everything. Not only will you be able to enjoy a restful day on a quiet beach, you will have a quiet night as well – no bar or restaurant noise, just swaying coconut fronds and the occasional fish jumping in the water!
Town is not far away when you want to go in for some live music, shopping, restaurants, etc. But there are things close by too; here are a few things within walking distance of Sunset Beach:
--Suya Tour operators (1 minute walk)
--Marin’s, a small grocery store (2 minute walk)
--Restaurants: Lone Star Grill & Black Orchid (4 minute walk)
--Island Time Beach Bar & Grill (10 minute walk)
--A beach yard filled with coconut sculptures! (5 minute walk)
The Belize Barrier Reef, the longest in the western hemisphere, is just 1/2 mile (1 km) off shore. Sit on the beach or your veranda and you can see the waves crashing over it! The water is warm and crystal clear--ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing.
It's also easy to take a day trip from the resort to visit Maya sites such as Altun Ha and Lamanai; or a trip to observe some of the 500 species of birds found in Belize and/or catch a glimpse of monkeys, manatees and crocodiles in the wild! Getting AroundMost people rent golf carts when visiting Ambergris Caye (it’s not possible to rent a car). Our concierge team can arrange your golf cart rental and have it waiting for you at Sunset Beach on your arrival if you wish. Rental costs depend on the cart size and time of year but start at about US$300/week.
As mentioned, there are also complimentary bikes & kayaks available at the resort. It’s about a 10 minute bike ride into town.
It’s also possible to walk to town, either via the beach (40 minutes to an hour, depending on how fast you walk) or via the road (slightly longer).
Taxis are also available. Other Things to NoteWe partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with the Saga Humane Society and Ambergris Caye Elementary School & would love to have your help!
