We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Abel is a great guy and host. Always making sure we were comfortable. Everything you need is here. Piece and quite, a big swimming pool, very large well equipped room, free use of bikes and a private dock to relax and swim. Free internet. Easy and fun bike ride to town along the beach. Airport is a 2 minutes away.

If you’re looking for value for money, Novelo is for you. It is basic but perfectly comfortable. Abel has built and furnished the apartments with great care and attention and you can tell. He is a wonderful host- he lent us bikes, head torches and even drove us to the harbour with our bags on our last day. Make no mistake, Novelo is far from the town but if you enjoy cycling it is actually a lovely bike ride along the beach- very scenic.

Close to the airstrip, The Novelo is a quiet refuge from the rest of the tourists and partying. A short walk to be in the middle of it all, this rustic retreat still has all the amenities and more, with a pool you can use, and free bikes. what??? How awesome. It is rustic and basic, but still clean and all you need.. Definitely well worth the money!! Best deal on the island. Awesome wifi and right on the beach!

My impression is that The Novelo is one of the best value for money you can find nowadays at Caye Caulker. It’s cosy and small ( only three apartments), with a perfect swimming pool you can consider private, with a table and chairs to sit down and relax reading a book or talking to Abel when he is around. This is a plus, since he can tell you interesting facts about the caye. All considered, you feel you are not a just a tourist visiting, you feel part of the island. The apartments are a stroll away from the village, which can be quite appealing to many, since the village can be noisy and crowded at nights. By bicycle is just 5 minutes from the airstrip. The private pier is also perfect just to relax and dream. I strongly recommend it

The novelo is on the southside of the island which is 10 minutes bike ride from middle of town. Its quite and secluded from the crowd which I appreciated. The golf cart taxi ride from water taxi to the house is covered by Novelo. The house has a very DIY handmade feel to it and the private dock was a plus. It gets dark at night so I recommend a flash light when walking or biking back to the room from town. I felt like some of the items in the room like bed sheets and towels could be updated but I think the entire island is bit outdated. I rented a golf cart to drive around the island but quickly realized biking is the fastest and the most convenient way to get around. Novelo offers free bike rentals, two thumbs up for that!!Good place for good price.

Great place to stay, a short 10 min bike to the center of the Village. Quiet, Clean and Abel was very accommodating to our needs. It was a relaxing stay and great value. He offers bikes to get around and the property is situated for the best sun rises on the island and at night for those who like to star gaze it is amazing.

We have been traveling with my wife around the world for several years. It`s really the most beautiful and tastefully decorated in which we stayed. All interior finishes, mosaics on the floor were made by the Owner of Abel. They are unbelievable. It is a pleasure to be in a wonderful apartment. Peace, quiet, privacy and beautiful views from the private pier. To the center of Placencia Village is about 1.4 km by legs through the beautiful mangrove forest and along the beach. You can ride a bicycle for free. A fully equipped kitchenette. Excellent WI-FI. Every day the we takes the energy in this place. Perfection in every inch. Thank You Abel. I hope that we`ll come back to You.

We rented a golf cart so we didn't need to take Abel up on the offer of the bikes. The view from the dock is incredible;a beautiful place to sit with your morning coffee. After dusk the fire flies dance around and put on a show. At night the sky is dark and makes for awesome star gazing. This place is off the grid (does have wifi). Abel's efforts at self-sufficiency are admirable. The town is close enough that you can enjoy the restaurants and of course the Split. Abel is very caring of his guests.

The yellow house at the south end of the island is worth the trip. Nice and large apartments with a rustic and colorful design. Cooking facilities, original decoration, the swimming pool will be completed beginning 2018 but you are a few steps from the ocean. Abel the owner is very attentive to the comfort of his guests and makes sure they will enjoy their stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Novelo, located in the South point area. Our apartment for 2 was fine, could have used more lights, but served well. The best was the location, which is very quiet with nice ocean views. Abel, the owner, provides his guests with the bikes which were a wonderful method to get around.
