Three Tips to Make Your Beachfront Vacation Rental a Success at Belizean Cove Estate
An oceanfront villa vacation in Belize has everything you need for luxury, relaxation, and adventure. When you stay at Belizean Cove Estates you get all the advantages of a beachfront vacation rental with the added benefit of front desk services and onsite amenities that help to make your getaway convenient and hassle-free. Three key components to this are ease of transportation via a golf cart rental, a fully-stocked kitchen with a provisioning service and a private chef for hire to cater perfect dinners in your villa. At Belizean Cove Estates, all three are easy to access and set up with help from the front desk.
Golf Cart Rentals on Ambergris Caye
Enjoy the freedom of adhering to your own schedule and exploring the island with a golf cart, one of the most popular forms of transportation. The island of Ambergris Caye is some 25 miles long, with San Pedro Town being the heart of things. There is a toll bridge for all motorized traffic (golf carts included) at the north end of town, and the road is paved to 3.5 Miles North at Belizean Shores Resort. Travel in island style as you explore local gift shops, dine at a variety of hot spots and check out the now-famous Secret Beach on the lee side of the island. Golf carts are considered motor vehicles and as such follow the same traffic laws- make sure only licensed drivers operate the golf cart and carry their valid driver’s license with, don’t drink and drive, and adhere to all traffic signs.
How to reserve- Contact the front desk either prior to your stay or on arrival to arrange for your golf cart rental. Advance reservations are encouraged during the high season to guarantee availability. No deposit is required to reserve your golf cart.

The charges for the golf cart will be posted to the room incidental for payment upon departure.
