Cayo Espanto

Casa Estrella

Blue In Belize / Casa Estrella

Key selling points: Doors that open on all sides of this stunning bi-level villa afford 360-degree views of the shimmering Caribbean Sea. A personal plunge pool, outdoor shower, and two private docks complete the picture.

Standout service: For a guest who had forgotten his luggage, including an expensive timepiece at a hotel in Miami, the owner of Cayo Espanto personally flew out to the city and picked up the bags.
