Can anyone help? - 03/16/03 03:07 AM

Hello! My best friend and I were planning a trip to Caye Caulker. My grandma's been spending the winters down there forever (except for this year!) and she only ever has wonderful things to say about the island! I was wanting to stay for six months... Does anyone know if we can rent (for cheap!) a place on the island. We're not picky, and don't need anything fancy! As long as there's a roof, we'll be happy! We were looking to leave in November. Any information would be appreciated! Thank you all so much for your time!

What is your price range? (in U.S. dollars)

Dear WW: Try Tina's: @ $7.50 per night you will not be able to beat it.

Tina's is a party but is not the cheapest place to stay. You can rent a room with two beds in a private room at Sandy Lane for US$10. Tina's is a bed for one in a dorm room.
From there you can ask around and find a house for US$400 or so in that time frame.
Finding a good deal may depend on your choice of friends. Many young people make friends with the easiest guys to speak with. These are the hustlers and the landlords will shut you out of the good deals if you appear to be friends with that crowd.
Eventually you will have problems and home owners here don't want to sort that out anymore.

You might want to ask about the cabanas at the Sandy Lane Hotel. Ms. Elma sometimes rents the cabanas out to monthly tennants.
