This three bedroom beachfront home is located on Ambegris Caye, the largest & northmost island off the coast of Belize, about five miles north of San Pedro. It's "out front"-- directly on the water with an unobstructed 180-degree view up and down the beach. It shares a beautifully landscaped private 20' x 40' fresh water pool detailed in tile and stone that match those found in the house. The house is a two-story structure with tiled roof and stucco walls framed and accented in Belizean hardwood, almost exclusively mahogany. The full time gardener/groundskeeper makes sure that the house remains well integrated into the natural environment of this one-time coconut plantation that's still dotted with both mature and younger palms. The first floor consists of three bedrooms. Two bedrooms face the water, each with a queen size bed, a full bath—brightly tiled, double sink basins-- and a private entrance out to the terrace facing the ocean. The north bedroom bathroom has a large step-in tiled "garden" shower area, which looks out onto a garden within a privacy fence.The rear bedroom has two single beds with frames specially constructed so that the beds push together and form a king without a mattress gap. It has a half bath and its own private entrance out to the pool or outside shower just around the corner. Each bedroom is individually air conditioned (as is the upstairs Great Room) should one desire, but the breeze off the water and each room's ceiling fan keeps the air fresh and cool. The upstairs features a Great Room with a vaulted hardwood ceiling and a covered terrace that runs the full length of the house, large enough to accommodate both a hammock and furniture for lounging or lunch, and a perfect place to soak up the panoramic ocean view. From the terrace you can easily see the reef that runs all along the coast of Belize, just a few hundred yards offshore, which makes for calm water at the shore, and some of the best diving, snorkeling, and fishing in the hemisphere. Your transportation to and from the San Pedro Airstrip is included in your rental. In addition maid service is provided every other day of your stay.
Belize is a country shaped by contrasting forces. Tiny in land area, just 8,867 square miles (22,966 km2), it nevertheless has one of the lowest population densities in the Western Hemisphere and one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Those two facts alone allow for great adventures--with plenty of elbow room. Locals never fight for a spot on the beach.Read more about luxury homes in Belize
