Casa Rana is a designer luxury home that for the last 7 years has catered to more than 200 immensely satisfied guests. It is the perfect place for your Caribbean adventure. Located 20 minutes north of San Pedro in the exclusive Mexico Rocks area you will awaken in your pillow top beds to amazing sunrises. Your choices each day ranges from doing absolutely nothing to fun experiences on the island or the mainland. Accessibility to all activities and restaurants is easy. Utilizing the principles of Feng Shui, our intention was to build the most beautiful home on the island, a place that would be in harmony with nature, a place of spirituality, and a place where one could nourish the soul. Our guests have confirmed that we accomplished our goal; Casa Rana has become the Number One luxury rental home destination in Belize. Please read the guest comments below; or Google us; the comments say it all. Day trips Include snorkeling, Beach BBQs, Catamaran Trips, Fishing, Kayaking, Visiting Mayan Ruins, Zip-Lining, Cave Tubing, and much more. For the last several years since 2016 we have been offering in-home meals served by our caretaker Bea. I personally trained her, as I have done with hundreds of other aspiring chefs. Bea is truly gifted, and she and I have created a menu of Belizean and Caribbean favorites, along with delicious Asian specialties. Our guests tell us we have the best food on the island. Don't miss her Key Lime Pie! The Unique Benefits of this villa: Our home includes spacious rooms and exquisite furnishings, in addition to unobstructed views of the Caribbean. Casa Rana is a living-breathing piece of art, dancing with energy twenty four hours a day. At night the unique lighting transforms the home into another dimension. Bring your family and friends and share with us a most memorable bare foot vacation. Staying in a stunning 3,000 square foot luxury home with its own private beach, plunge pool ( 10' x 14'), and dock, is an extraordinary experience very few people ever get a chance to do.. Just observing the water, the sky and the sea will occupy hours of your time. The power of nature is here in its full glory. Why the Owner Chose San Pedro: Belize is a land of many different cultures living in an unusually harmonious way. English is the official language and the country is governed according to English Law. It is a land of astounding beauty, and one of the last parts of the Caribbean to be fully explored. We were mesmerized with the beauty of the Caribbean water, the sky and the island of Ambergris Caye. This was a place where we knew we wanted to be. Our varied backgrounds includes (among other professions) design and building, and we wanted to build a home that was a 'work of art and spirituality', to be shared with all who chose to visit.
