- Happy in Wisconsin Birchwood, Wisconsin, USA Made us feel welcome
Margie and I want to thank you for making us feel welcome from day one, the Penthouse was great and we had great views from the roof. You always treated us as friends rather than renters and always showed interest in our safety and if we felt at home. The first few days when walking around Corozal we would say its time to head back to the penthouse but by the end of the first week we were saying its time to head home. We really liked the fact that we could walk to get groceries, fresh produce and lunch. We felt very safe no matter where we walked and were very surprised how friendly the people were. Best Regards and many thanks. Margie & Jerry

- Loretta M. Arizona USA Totally Perfect
As a woman traveling alone, I had done a lot of looking for the right place, where I could feel safe, still have private space if I chose to, yet not be "alone.. etc... I found this ad & contacted the owners Lilly & Iain, & after a few emails, this without a doubt was the "place", tho I'd know for certain when I got there...If your even considering this as a destination, this is the only place to stay..It is absolutely as shown..even better..the house was immaculate, I was there for 2 months & but for an occasional ant, saw not one bug..I had my privacy & yet never felt unsafe.as someone is always there....I was fine walking all over the town, very friendly, helpful people, good food, very laid back place to spend some down time..You feel at home immediately,.any questions you may have are answered promptly & any problem solved...They are most helpful, & could not have been nicer to me..I will go back & I would advise anyone looking for a place, to look no further..every morning, you can hear the little man on the bicycle calling out, eggs & fruit, so it's right at your doorstep if you choose to have fresh fruit!....the 2 cottages on the same grounds are constantly booked, & are precious...I loved my roof terrace..a great place to catch the breeze & read..the patio off the living room was a perfect spot to have morning coffee, you are surrounded by big trees & wonderful sunrise & sunsets...If I could go higher than 5 stars, this penthouse is a 10!,,,,

- Camma81 Oslo/Norway Beautiful penthouse
We stayed in Corozal in this penthouse for four months, and had a really lovely time here. The penthouse is very nice and well maintained, with a huge rooftop terrace - perfect for sunny days. Our landlords Lily and Iain made our stay perfect with all the tips and help we needed. We truly recommend this penthouse for a visit in Corozal!

- Puck Lexington, South Carolina Penthouse Stay
My husband and I were more than a little apprehensive about coming to Belize. When we finally met Iain and Lilly, after months of emails, all of our fears and misgivings vanished. They have made our stay in Corozal a unique and forfilling adventure. As a result, we are making Belize our retirement home. Lilly and Iain are exceptional hosts and friends. The Penthouse is lovely and very comfortable and has provided us with a home away from home.We have been here almost a year and all of our needs have been easily met and any questions we may have had have been answered by our hosts. The gardens are exceptional and are cared for on a daily basis. It is so lovely to sit out and enjoy the breeze. We have made many friends here and find Corozal very interesting with all of its unique characteristics. If you are looking for relaxation and at the same time access to Belize, then you cannot go wrong staying in Corozal and having Lilly and Iain as your hosts. Carl and Sharon from South Carolina

- GrumpyJohn Atlanta, Georgia, USA Dusty and grumpy
Well at first we did not like the town at all, the heat and dust the dry season brings, but we really had not researched much before booking our trip to Belize. We were pretty grumpy when checking in with the Penthouse. That's when things started to change, Lilly and her husband took all our stress away and welcomed us into their home. From day one we felt we had met friends long forgotten and immediately started to see Corozal through their eyes, that's when my wife and I really started to understand the slow friendly ways of the Belize people. In retrospective we now see Corozal with much appreciation, we think it all boils down to who makes the introduction. Our grateful thanks to your warm welcome and patience and support with us. You made our stay in Corozal totally worthwhile.

- D. Kuhr and pals Tempe, Arizona Pals getaway
We came as a group of 4 friends, we were looking for somewhere with enough space not to trip over each other. We were not disappointed, the Penthouse is simply stunning!! The help we received from Lilly was fantastic, a friend of ours surprised us on his way to Guatemala and we were not charged any extra for him to stay a couple days. We had a great time exploring up into Mexico. Thank You Lilly for your Belizean hospitality! - Hope we can come back and visit again some day. best, Diana.

- Velma and Heinrich Stuttgart, Deutschland Such a find !
We came for a much needed vacation and to consider Corozal as a retirement location. Both objectives were met at this lovely home. The Coral House is gorgeous and well equipped. The decoration is elegant and colorful. We really got a taste of what Belizean living would be like by just stepping outside and walking down the street, and so grateful to be in walking distance to the town. Didn't need to bother with a rental car. Our numerous questions about living in Belize and in particular Corozal were thoughtfully and fully answered by our friendly, charming hosts. Highly recommended! Can't wait to return! We would like to say that the photos do not do it justice, the Penthouse is very very spacious, as it was our first visit we felt that safety was our priority, we felt extremely lucky with our choice. Auf wiedersehen.

- Anneke Amsterdam, Netherlands Very Beautiful
Dear Lilly, I wanted to thank you so much for making our visit one to remember. All was exactly as you described, if not better! Your villa is very beautiful. We had a busy schedule in visiting all the historic sites but it all went very smoothly, Henrys car rental you recommended were such wonderful people. Corozal town, the people and the local fare suited us just great, we didn't want to leave! We hope to be back in Belize early next year. Thanks Again, Anneke.
