Loved San Pedro and our Stay
The grounds and location of the property are fantastic, and the house is quite comfortable, made more so by the attention paid to it by the caretakers Naomi and Victor and their dogs Prince and Rex who all make you feel very safe and well cared for.
We were a group of 8, two parents and our three adult children with their partners. We have traveled as a group previously to Maui and Grand Cayman and everyone enjoyed this trip the most. We asked the owner to arrange golf cart rentals and they were waiting for us at the house and everyone loved scooting around the island on them.
Many great restaurants, we will have to go back just to get them all in, we loved the fresh fish, lobster, and latin cuisines. Some of our favorites were Marbucks (breakfast) Elvi's kitchen, Truck Stop (finished in the money on trivia night which was a blast for everyone) Tipsy Lobster, Neri's tacos (ate there after checking in for departure flight, less than twenty five for all eight of us including drinks), El Fagon, and Stellas sunset.
The pool and beach area at the house were fantastic, and the house is close to Secret Beach which we really enjoyed especially on very windy days as Secret beach is on other side of island and very calm.
We utilized the kayaks on good days and went all the way out to the barrier reef, one of the kayaks has an anchor and we tied the other kayak to it while we snorkeled. Lots of fish out there. Victor arranged an all day snorkel trio for us and the meal we had on the boat, lobster chicken, and fish was our favorite of the whole vacation cooked right in front of us on a tiny grill with coconut husks and bbq charcoals.
Beds were comfortable and Naomi cleaned every day which is a rarity for VRBO rentals. Large fridge for leftovers or groceries, we stopped on way to house from airport to pick up those.
Plenty of room to spread out in house, nice kitchen table to eat or play games on, living area with small TV and large couch, tv gets all the main channels on cable. Upstairs has table and couch to read or work on, wifi hotspot located upstairs for better reception.
All in all very happy and highly recommend.
A stay we will never forget
We loved our stay it was close to excellent eating. We loved our walk every morning on the beach. You can walk forever. Victor and Naomi where great host on the property. They always made sure we had everything we asked for. We loved their two dogs and always felt safe with them around. We always bought burritos from the guys that came by early in the morning on their bikes. The sunrise was beautiful every morning. Victor helped the guys with fishing off of the dock. We had the guy pick us up for fun snorkeling on shark alley. We also had a guy pick us up on the dock for a wonderful dinner at the Portifino. A wonderful Christmas vacation for our family we will never forget.

Perfect for Rest & Relaxation
We had a nice relaxing vacation at Villa Stella Marie. We were there for seven nights in November which is the end of the rainy season so there were a couple of maintenance issues related to the house and the listed amenities which I have shared with the owner to resolve for future guests but otherwise the house was a perfect set up for us. The outdoor pool and deck are awesome! We also enjoyed immensely the private dock for morning coffee and evening sunsets. But what really makes Stella Marie special are the caretakers, Victor and Noemi and their two wonderful dogs. In addition to their work on the grounds and housekeeping, they go out of their way to be friendly and kind. Victor made time to cut up a fresh coconut for us right from a tree on the property and also arranged for a snorkeling trip where we were picked up and returned to the Villa's dock and his sweet wife Noemi greeted us everyday with her beautiful smile and caring heart. One last word of advice: buy fresh seafood from the man that comes by on his bike and if you don't feel like cooking breakfast or going out the burrito guy that comes by with his burritos is a fun option.
We're happy to hear you had such a wonderful time. Please visit again soon and thank you for the feedback!
Our trip to Ambergris Caye was delightful, but too short... We will certainly travel back and stay again at Stella Di Mare. The home owner in the USA was so pleasant, easy to reach, accommodating, perfect. There are a husband & wife, Victor & Noami, who live on the 2+ acre property, in their care taker home. The Villa is lovely, while being a bit rustic as well. All 4 bedrooms are spacious. The setting is just breathtakingly beautiful. We arranged with the owner ahead of our arrival, to have Noami prepare a welcome dinner for the 8 of us. It was also a birthday celebration. I did ask for a cake to be there, not only was there a cake, but she had a few lovely decorations & a huge sparkler candle. It was great fun and delicious! I spoke with the owner before leaving the USA regarding Golf Cart Rentals. He recommended 2 carts for the 8 of us. The owner had Victor, set up the rental and they were waiting for us at our villa. I HIGHLY recommend that you take the flight to Ambergris Caye and NOT the Boat/Ferry - its way too LONG a trip! We boated over & flew back! Just a very short up the beach is a fabulous restaurant and bar - Coco Cabana!!! They're open for lunch, dinner, drinks and its soooooo good!!!! Also, Victor arranged a snorkling tour for us. We had 1 scuba diver, as well. Victor, had "Scuba Steve" pick us up at our private pier/dock for the afternoon adventure and we were brought right back hoem - PERFECT!
I highly recommend staying here. It wasDELIGHTFUL!!!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience! We hope to see you again soon!
