If you’re a family looking to getaway to the Caribbean for your Easter or Spring break, vacation rentals may be your best option. After all, the much anticipated break involves a week-long vacation, and families traveling as a pod tend to look for vacation rentals that are as comfortable as being at home. And for a family of 8 or more, that means amenities like a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and even a pool. When the kids were young, a kitchen was essential for snacks, milk, breakfast foods, and overall budget savings. Today, with teenagers, that budget saving is even more critical. And for mom and dad, a few adult beverages in the fridge helps. Did someone say beveragino? Hotels are great, but it just isn’t the same as sitting on the back porch as your host breaks out a map of recommendations. Not to mention, the bottle of Traveller’s rum that greeted you in the rental’s refrigerator. Beachy vacation rentals are officially a space to call your own in Belize.
The Landings at Tres Cocos – North Ambergris Caye
The beachy Landings at Tres Cocos are the perfect vacation rental option for those ready to travel as a pod or as just a family; these beachfront condominiums deserve an honorable mention. Conveniently located just one mile north of the bridge outside San Pedro Town, two adjacent properties face the Caribbean Sea: Bermuda Beach and Bermuda Landing. However, choose up to 5-bedroom units – both equipped with an onsite management team that handles all the rest. After all, two fresh water swimming pools, a salt water swimming pool, and beach side BBQ cooking station also helps sweeten the deal.
Solaria by Sunrise Property Management – North Ambergris Caye
Your own private enclave: welcome to Solaria. With over 5,000 sq. ft of inspired living spaces, the Solaria Villas on Ambergris Caye offers beachfront living with a touch of luxury just over 3 miles north of town. Three stand-alone villas combine to complete the complex, with each standing at 3 stories tall as 4- and 5-bedroom units. Vacationers can enjoy the privacy of a beachy rental, with all the amenities you’d need in a home; although each boasts its own unique layout, their signature tropical atriums and sweeping custom crafted spiral wooden staircases offers an unforgettable warm welcome. Each gourmet kitchen is spacious, with large living and dining areas that flow seamlessly onto verandas overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Solaria Villas can be rented as one combined unit for groups of up to 24 persons, or individually just for your own private bubble.
Escape Away Belize – North Ambergris Caye
Three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a killer view all combine for the classic beach house of Escape Away Belize, although the new 450 foot infinity swimming pool doesn’t hurt. This vacation rental, found in the sunny town of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, makes privacy effortless: your own private resort-sized dock, 450-foot infinity private pool, private beachfront, and private chef would spoil just about anyone. Sleeping up to 10 persons just 8 miles from the San Pedro airport on a newly paved gravel road, you can enjoy complimentary airport transfers, WiFi, and 40% off bookings for November 2021 via VRBO. Bonus: Escape Away Belize can schedule testing on site to meet the USA’s entry requirements—right on property.

You’ll enjoy complimentary airport and boat transfers, WiFi, your own island cook for all meals, housekeeping, non-alcoholic drinks, and island-based activities.
