Private Beachfront Villa with Rooftop Pool, Full Staff, Free Beach Rentals

Located in: San Pedro
Discover the tranquility of your own private Caribbean villa with its panoramic view of the Caribbean sea.
Because of the location of El Gran Castillo de Arena, its thoughtful design, beautiful décor, and its overall commitment to excellence, the “Sandcastle” is regarded as one of Belize’s finest 4 or 5 bedroom oceanfront villas. This private home is located just 5 miles north of San Pedro Town in the sought-after Mata Grande area, the closest area on Ambergris Caye to the fun and popular Secret Beach. And with it's 3 separate living areas within the home, it is perfect for your multi-family vacation to provide large areas to gather, yet private areas to unwind and relax as well. Our two full-time employees take great pride in assuring that you and your group have everything you need during their stay.

By day, El Castillo de Arena is drenched in sunshine and the view from your villa and rooftop patio is of turquoise sea and the second largest barrier reef in the world. Take a quiet stroll down the beach, fish or snorkel off your own private pier or take a refreshing dip in your own pool on your 3rd-floor patio after sunbathing.

At dusk, as the sun sets and the lights slowly fade, the villa undergoes a magical transformation. Relax on the rooftop and watch some of the most beautiful flaming sunsets you will ever see.

Inside this private home are 5 air-conditioned bedrooms and sleeps up to 10 guests. The unique design of this villa features 3 separate units with 3 fully equipped kitchens and air-conditioned living and dining areas for ultimate privacy for your multi-family vacation. Each unit is equipped with WiFi.

The upstairs unit features a spacious air-conditioned great room with soaring ceilings. It is tastefully decorated with an earthy Mayan theme in rich jewel tones with comfortable rattan furniture and locally carved mahogany tables. For your entertainment, there is a 55" HD TV with over 100 cable channels, a DVD player, and a Bose sound system. The beautifully designed fully-equipped kitchen has a dining and bar area that seats up to 10. There is plenty of room for the whole gang to gather. The master bedroom with king bed has an en-suite bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has a king bed that can be converted to two twins for versatility. There is also a second full bathroom in the upstairs unit.

The downstairs unit features a living area decorated in tasteful casual elegance with ceiling fans, ceramic tiled floors, and honey rattan furniture. Included is a 36” HD TV with local cable and DVD player. There is also an ever-growing video, book and game library. The dining table, along with the kitchen peninsula/bar that separates the kitchen from the living area, provide seating for seven. Each of the two air-conditioned bedrooms features large closets, ceiling fans and a king bed with under-bed drawer space that can be separated into two twin beds if desired. The full bath has brilliant white and cobalt blue ceramic tile decorated in bright “coral reef” colors.

Both kitchens are fully equipped with electric stove/oven, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and a blender for those luscious tropical drinks. The Belizean Mahogany cupboards are filled with china, dinnerware, cooking supplies, utensils, linens and kitchen implements.

The optional third private unit is the honeymoon suite connected to the south side of the house. This newly constructed suite was just added for that extra needed bedroom. It features lofty ceilings and air conditioning. The great room has a living/dining area with HD TV with cable, and a kitchenette. The large air-conditioned bedroom includes a queen bed and large closet. There is also a full bath. All kitchen amenities are included. The optional apartment rents for an additional $100 per night.

All towels, linens, iron/ironing board and a hairdryer are provided for your convenience. A washer/dryer is also available for use with a 7-night stay or longer.

The 'Sunset Tower' is the third-floor patio with a 360-degree view of paradise. Rejuvenate your body after soaking up the Caribbean sun with a refreshing plunge in the 4' deep dip pool. The patio furniture and tables, along with the shaded pergola offer a wonderful spot for dining while viewing the beautiful turquoise Caribbean waters or breathtaking sunsets.

Large patio doors from the living areas open to reveal beautiful views from the outdoor covered verandas with table and chairs where you can watch the sunrise over morning coffee. Enjoy direct access to the beach right out the door. Across the white sandy beach lies your private pier with thatch palapa and swim deck, perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing or to try your luck at reeling in your fish dinner.

Also right on the beach is your own private thatch-roof palapa to keep you cool and shaded while sipping your favorite libation at the “Carpe Diem” bar. A warm-water shower to rinse off after your day’s excursions is conveniently located right outside your front door. Located in the tropically landscaped backyard is a BBQ grill to cook that fresh catch of the day.

And to make an amazing vacation even better, all guests at El Castillo de Arena have complimentary use of all beach equipment. Included are bicycles, kayaks, snorkel gear, beach games including cornhole and volleyball, beach toys, baby needs and much more.

It has been said by past guests that our best feature, hands down, is our caretaker William. He and his loyal and friendly dogs, Tonester and Lady, live behind the house on the property. He is here to assist you with anything you need.
Marvin is William’s assistant and your housekeeper. He will do light housekeeping daily if desired and will help you with your luggage, etc. He takes great pride in keeping the grounds and beach looking immaculate!
The owners reside on the property during the winter months and can offer a wealth of information during your stay. They look forward to being your hosts.

Although you come for relaxation and solitude, the quaint town of San Pedro, with its shops and nightlife is only a 20-minute boat ride or golf cart ride. There are also a couple of fabulous restaurants and a grocery store within a 10-minute walk.

We are happy to assist you in any way to make your vacation memorable, from arranging tours, golf cart rentals, and transportation from Belize Goldson International Airport to San Pedro.
