This is about a block away from the strip. Not sure what the comments about the location are about as Caye Caulker town is about half a mile long so its about two mins walk if that to all the bars and restaurants. The owner and all the staff are really nice, the room had a big fridge which was good. CC is stinking hot which you may want to bear in mind - the room is not a/c. CC is very safe. Personally though I loved having my own quiet apartment after months in backpackers at a great price!
It is a fine place if you just need a clean room but it is just slightly too far away from the main strip and the center of town. The Wifi is super fast (surprisingly) and the room was always very clean with fresh sheets every day. The fridge and coffee maker worked fine but not much in the way of cups and silverware. There are no plates ... not that you can cook but would have been nice anyway. The upstairs room gets a little more breeze when it s really hot... but also gets more sun.
It's in the residential area, so we weren't surprised. Anyone that pays the small charge but complains about not being right on the beach needs a reality check. The room (we had #1, upstairs) was very clean, Raul, his family and the woman that cleaned the room were very nice. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching life on the island go by, and by that I mean the residents. Had an issue with sulphur smelling water but Raul immediately corrected it. We enjoyed being away from the beach.

We have been staying in hostels travelling through Mexico and Belize so it was nice to have a private ensuite room for a few nights. It's not particularly glam but it's clean, in a good location and the room is cleaned daily, including fresh bed sheets. There's wifi too and it's cheap. Raul was friendly but don't take his restaurant suggestions unless you want food poisoning!
Raul is a charming man, always ready to help or just have a chat. There are only two rooms, on top of each other: Good size, huge fridge, TV, nice balcony for a sundowner and watching the locals go by. Located in a quiet street, a short walk away from Caye Caulker's main drag with all its shops, restaurants and tour operators. Excellent value for money.
Lovely family-run business where we feel like living with the locals. Room was cleaned everyday very well, had a fridge and cable tv and wifi. Great find as it was very busy the time we were there. Would definitely stay here again.
Well we made a mistake & got no sympathy. We are travelling with a 13m old baby so always book aircon rooms. For some reason we didn't see this one had no air con & didn't check the room before we handed over our money. BIG MISTAKE!! After looking at the room we went straight back to the owner to say we can't stay without air-con, our baby won't sleep! She said we should have checked the cancellation policy & she will charge us 50% if we cancel any nights! So we had 3 miserable hot nights here!
