We are so proud to share these amazing pictures with you, taken by Sondra Davis, who just started her own company called “Flash Focus Photography“.
Sondra was so kind for sharing her pictures with us, and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.
When Sondra emailed us, she also wrote us the following review:
“When I first met my husband, we went through the whole 20 questions stage. We discovered that vacationing on Ambergris Caye in Belize was on both our bucket lists. Now being a young married couple, we couldn’t afford it, but we were able to plan the most amazing 10th wedding anniversary trip to our “paradise”. While researching places to stay, I kept coming back to Portofino’s page. There was just something about the raw beauty of the property and I was drawn in. We visited in July of 2013, and it was by far the best vacation of our lives. The staff was extremely accommodating as well as congenial and simply amazing. I’ve in all my travels never encountered a staff like the crew at Portofino Beach Resort. They are ALL top notch. Our vacation was fantastical and effortless upon arrival. Our cabana was impeccably clean and fabulously decorated. The handmade soap was a very original touch, I fell in love with it as well as the fresh tropical flowers. And the food! Oh the food! Superb, we were never disappointed. We plan on making this a yearly tradition, so you should be seeing a lot of us. You may as well adopt us now ”

Did you spend all your time in your tree house as a kid? Or were you brokenhearted because you never had one? Well, these nine gorgeous hotels can turn your childish tree house fantasies into grown-up realities. These rustic-luxe (or just luxe) tree-house-style bungalows will let you live among the birds (and, in some cases, monkeys). Who says you have to give up on your childhood dreams?
Portofino Beach Resort, Belize owners Jan and Sandra van Noord opened this romantic hideaway in 2001, and today it has 16 rooms (many cabana-style units with thatched roofs, including the aptly named Treetop Suite) and one mansion for families and groups. The room decor is a mix of Belizean and Guatemalan textiles and furnishings, and the ambiance is unpretentious (the owners call the vibe “barefoot elegance”).
