Our luxurious home

Belize jungle estate vacation rental! AirBnB and VRBO standards, only 20 minutes by car from the Placencia Peninsula. Our two storey luxurious home was fully renovated in 2023. It is ideal for a large family or small group looking for a very private retreat, with two king-sized and two queen-sized beds. The large living and dining area has a cathedral ceiling. The fully equipped kitchen has an island with beautiful quartz counter tops. We have a ten-person dining room table. The decor throughout our home is accented with Belizean hardwoods, including mahogany, most of it hand made. A sliding door connects the living/dining area to a huge balcony from which you have a marvelous view of a big garden, the rainforest, the Mayan mountains, and fabulous sunsets. The enormous wrap-around balcony with swinging loveseat overlooks the fruit plantation. Its Western exposure guarantees lovely sunsets most evenings, and by night, you have first-rate stargazing. Original art by the best Belizean artists decorates our home (Anton Leslie, Ernesto Gomes, Erwin Chan, Sami). Watch the parrots, toucans and other exotic birds direct from your deck around the pool! Or if you wake up early morning and just lie in bed, most days you will be treated to a beautiful avian concert! Our solar farm provides the electricity for our farm, except for during long stretches of cloudy weather, the grid serves as a back-up. Our farm manager and his wife, who live in a separate house 3 minutes walk away, are also on standby to make your stay as enjoyable as possible!
