Beachfront, Playa Asunción, Caye Caulker, Belize District, Belize
Austrian-born owner Doris Creasey brings an eccentric flair and Teutonic cleanliness to this three-story colonial-style guesthouse, set back a ways from the sea. The decor mingles decades—silk flowers, a mysterious empty urn, faux stained glass—and the furniture can be a little resistant. But if you seek a quiet retreat, this is a well-managed, affordable option. Two third-floor suites, Sunset and Sunrise, have king-size beds and private balconies with views of the sea and reef. A small courtyard garden is a pleasant place to read or lounge in a hammock. Treetops is about 150 feet from the sea, within walking distance of most island restaurants, tour offices, and shops. A few guests rankle at the house rules and regulations enforced by the owner, who runs a tight ship: checkout is 9 am; no cooking in rooms, not even hot water for coffee or tea; no outside guests; water bottle refills are BZ$1. But most find this to be a charming guesthouse.
