We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. It is an easy walk to stores and places to eat, and a $5 us taxi ride to town.
My husband and I stayed at Mayflower Casita for 3 week, and it was perfect for a couple. Karen the owner is lovely and takes wonderful care of the beautiful tropical garden the Casita is located in. The Casita was very clean and unlike many rentals had abundant hot water and towels, a very comfortable bed, 2 flat screen TV,s, even HBO. It is located in a quiet area a 20 minute walk to downtown San Pedro, which is noisy and hectic and a 5 minute walk to restaurants, a bakery and a grocery store. The access to the beach is only 1 block away ad 2 pools at a nearby hotel are available to those who stay at the Casita. It was a perfect tropical retreat.
We just returned from Belize after spending our honeymoon at the casita. I am so happy we ended up choosing this as our getaway for the trip. Karen is the best! Her care and passion for her property, her guests and the island go above and beyond. The casita is close enough, yet secluded enough to give you a true sense of "living like a local". We were the first guests to stay after hurricane Earl, and it was like she hadn't missed a beat! Let the pictures entice you, but let my review and all the rest here convince you-GO! BOOK IT! You won't be disappointed!
My flowercasita is very nice place to spend your hollyday... The house is confortable and beatiful and the honour Karen is a very kind and lovely person. Is just little far from the center of San Pedro, but you can rent a bike from Karen and reach the town in 10 minuts cycling. The garden around casita is a kind of paradise, very relaxing place. And you can use the facilities of the closer resort. The beach is just about 5 minuts walk.
We highly recommend the Casita for a wonderful San Pedro Belize vacation. Karen is a great hostess- shares local information, answers questions, keeps the house and grounds clean and comfortable. What we liked: breakfast coffee outside in the adirondack chairs, evenings relaxing in the lounge chairs, very convenient location. Within a five minute walk, we enjoyed Belizean food at 2 local restaurants, more "formal" meals at Banana Beach Resort, beach, 2 pools, and the best Happy Hour on the island. Within 10 minutes, we walked to 3 grocery stores, the Tortilla Shop, fruit/vegetable market stand, and more restaurants. The "downtown" area of San Pedro is a easy 30 minute walk along the ocean- although we only went into town twice. We took 2 wonderful snorkeling trips. One included a boat ride to Bacalar Chico National Park and Marine Reserve (amazing!), the second included a sailboat ride to Caulker Caye.

You will be so happy to start your day eating breakfast outside as birds sing in the canopy overhead. And after a day of sightseeing, snorkelling or lounging by the nearby pool, you will be refreshed as you return to your little casita set in the beautiful and well maintained yard rich with shady foliage. Cool breezes coming through the screened windows will keep up your energy. The air conditioner will ensure you a good night's sleep as will the very comfortable bed. We found the location to be excellent - easy walking distance to a fruit/vegetable stand, a very good meat shop, two grocery stores, two places to get fresh tortillas, and of course The Baker. There are places to eat nearby too. Across the road is the Banana Beach Hotel where you can use the pools and beach area. The staff is very good and the women at the Monkey Business travel hut are exceptional. They will arrange tours for you and we found them to be very helpful in all respects. Taxis are readily available on the street by the hotel but we often walked up town as well.
Karen's casita is beautiful - we LOVED staying here for 1 week. The yard is very nice and well-maintained as well.
The casita is a little far out from the center of town, but for us it was a nice walk. You are also able to rent bikes or a golf cart if walking isn't your thing. Karen also picked us up from the boat in a golf cart, so we didn't have to carry our suitcases all the way to the casita.
The casita also gives you access to the amenities at the nearby resort: swimming pools, massages, etc.
Thank you for a wonderful San Pedro experience!
