We had the pleasure of staying here just the past week and it was an amazing experience from front to back. Before getting into the details of the stay, I want to provide a little background... We were set to arrive the Wednesday that Hurricane Earl was set to arrive. We were in constant contact with Hilary and Pike prior... More

We booked Hillary/Pike's apartment (duplex) via Airbnb. What a great choice! Hillary and Pike and very hospitable people who care a great deal about their tenants. Hillary was always very prompt in answering sms and emails. Even when our flight was delate by 9 hours, she managed to re-arrange our pickup from the airport. Pike met us at the water... More

****First, a great weather resource Hilary shared. Hydromet.gov.bz. Weather.com, wunderground, and other US forecast services aren't accurate because they may show very high probability of rain hourly in the rainy season, but that could just be for a trace of rain somewhere in the area. It's the coast, of course that will happen. Use hydromet and projected accumulations on wunderground... More

Picololo was our "home base" for a two and a half week stay on Caye Caulker. The apartment is spotless and spacious with everything you need. The kitchen was well-equipped (though we did very little cooking with so many great places to eat nearby). The bathroom was also very comfy with a huge shower. The bed was great, and it... More

I just returned from Caye Caulker after a short break from work and I just loved the time I spent there. I stayed in Studio 1 and it was awesome! Just can't beat waking up to soft sunlight and cool breezes. There are a lot of choices where to stay and I admit I looked at many before choosing Picololo... More

The 9 days I spent at Picololo Studio Apartments was outstanding. They are the perfect distance away from town - far enough out to feel secluded and quiet, but close enough that a 5 minute bike ride get you to the restaurants, bars, swimming and tour companies. The grounds are wonderfully shaded and make you feel that you are staying... More

We were on the tail end of a 6-week trip through Central America and decided to head to Caye Caulker for a week. This place was paradise.

Hilary and Pike were fantastic hosts during our three night stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
These are bright, brand new spacious studio styled accommodations located in the tranquil residential section of Caye Caulker. Hilary and Pike have lived here for all their lives and after years of busting and saving, they offer their dreams to you. These apartments are finished to a very high standard and offer many little bonus touches to give you that extra degree of comfort. The house is set in a tropical wonderland full of birds, plants and iguanas! Picololo is around 10 min walk south of the village or 4-5 mins ride on your complimentary bicycles. Piquitololo *NEW Piquitololo is the newest addition to the Picololo family. Just refinished to comfortable standards, this little gem of a room is perfect for the single traveller or discerning couple. Situated on the same grounds as Picololo, the room offers a private entrance and small patio separate from the other rooms. Coming with A/C, wi-fi, cable television and a small kitchenette, the baby of the family is as well equipped as her larger sister rooms. The owner, Judith, a 21 year resident of Caye Caulker, former nurse, counselor, care expert and artist has done a very nice job on this little hideaway. She is a veritable fountain of information on our little island in the Caribbean and would be happy to answer any questions you may have on Caye life. Be prepared to laugh, however, as every conversation we have had with her has been full of life. Each unit features: Queen Size Bed, Air-conditioning, Complimentary Bikes, FREE WIFI, Cable TV, South of 'town' in the 'quieter' part of the island, Kitchen with Microwave, Coffee Maker, Fridge, Toaster, Stove, Blender, Sofa - sitting area, Verandah, Ceiling fans in bedroom and bathroom, Bathroom with hot water shower.
