Gold Standard Health and Safety Commitment

We are committed to providing you with a safe environment during your stay. Shallow Bay Beach House has developed a Gold Standard Policy to ensure compliance with the requirements of AirBnB, Belize Tourism Board, Ministry of Health and other governmental agencies related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We have developed an enhanced cleaning check list and allow 72 hours in between guests check ins. Our team will actively monitor the enhanced cleaning and safety standards as we focus on the health and safety of our guests and staff members.


Guests will have access to electronic copies of all sanitization and safety procedures. Guests will be provided a local cell phone to communicate with our Property Manager during their stay. We encourage limited physical contact to ensure health and safety of our guests and staff.

Temperature Check

Our staff will take the temperature (using a thermal scanner) of all guests upon arrival. We are required to document this information and make it available upon request of regulatory agencies. We will also check the temperature of all employees prior to the start of their shift in addition to a second check during the same shift. These temperatures will also be documented and available upon request by regulatory agencies. A formal Response Plan has been developed for suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19. This plan is available for guests to review electronically.

Social Distancing and Mask-Wearing

The Government of Belize recommends a minimum of six feet distancing when in a public space. Guests will find signage as a reminder of social distancing on our property. Guests are expected to follow local regulations which currently include wearing a mask in public spaces for all adults and children over the age of six. Fines for violators not wearing masks is BZ$5,000 (US$2,500).
If you test positive COVID-19 during your stay you will be quarantined at your expense at a rate of $120/night until you test negative. As these guidelines change, we will implement the changes accordingly.


Hand sanitizer is available prior to entering our Property Managers office. We have also provided hand sanitizer inside your apartment. We encourage you to disinfect your hands prior to entrance to your apartment

Ground Transportation and Tours

We can arrange ground transportation for you from the international airport, or you can rent a car with one of Gold Standard Car rentals operators.

You can catch connecting flight from International Airport to Dangriga via Tropic Air or Maya Island Air and hop in one of the Gold Standard taxis just outside the airport.
