Caye Caulker House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Complete self supporting home next to Mangrove Reserve. Home is Solar powered, water is collected rain water.
Unplug from your hectic life and smell the ocean, waves lapping the shore, listen to the sounds of the Mangrove reserve; the birds, geckos, and the wind blowing through the coconut trees. Watch Iguana's take in the afternoon sun, Herons patiently stand in the water and suddenly snap for lunch, march of the blue crabs at dusk, a squadron of Pelicans glide along the shoreline, skimming the treetops....
Lazily swing in one of 3 hammocks while listening to a rain burst, or to catch a breeze during a sunny afternoon. Keep a camera handy. The Osprey is quick.
The bird watching is most unique. In the house is 'The Birds of Belize', but keep it handy while on the deck.
Beautiful house on tip of island. Watch the sunset from the front deck, or the sunrise from the back deck. Open floor plan, washroom (toilet/sink), lots of airflow from all 11 windows. House is tucked next to a mangrove reserve, so lots of bird and wildlife activity. It's 15 feet up, and catches every breeze.
Sit on the Crow's Nest and enjoy the unobstructed 360 view, lay in a hammock with a Belikin Beer or sit in the bar stools on the deck with dining rail and enjoy dinner by sunset.
Make a fresh rum drink with real banana's and pineapple in the hand crank blender while listening to Jimmy Buffet or Caribbean music on the XM satellite radio... if you want to gloat to your friend, upload photos via the wifi showing them your views....
There is a caretaker who will meet you on the island (get there by plane or water taxi) and take you to the house and get you settled in. A local phone is provided to call caretaker during your stay.
House has a full kitchen and there are several grocery stores on the island.
The house is on the south point of the island, the village is 1.4 miles away, which is 10-15 minutes by bicycle (a pair comes with the house for use by guests). From the crow's nest, you can see the village. It's not beachfront, but not much is on Caye Caulker (The Split on the north tip of the island is the public beach area), the shoreline at this part of the island is protected Mangrove shoreline.
To say this home is one of the most unique houses with breathtaking views on the island would be completely accurate.
As part of the community, a percentage of all proceeds goes to the Caye Caulker Ocean Academy, the island's only High School
Calendar is maintained off line and the house is only booked for 14 days a month. Please email for availability.
This is the place to experience the Caye Caulker motto; 'Go Slow'

About The Owner
Wife and I enjoy traveling around the world. Europe is always a must. In the states, we do road trips in our '67 VW Bus and hike with our Red Heeler.
The Owner purchased this house in 2010
Why The Owner chose Caye Caulker
First visited Caye Caulker in 2006 and kept going back. Discovered the only things more beautiful than the scenery of Caye Caulker are the people of Caye Caulker. I designed this house based on the architecture of native islander homes and it was built last year.
What makes this house unique
Besides the sunsets, I really enjoy watching the wildlife. the variety of birds, (Herons, Ospreys, Roseate Spoonbill and more). This house is right next to the Mangrove Reserve, so the wildlife is abundant. My first morning in the house, I woke up to an Iguana on a branch looking in the window at me!
This house is perfect for someone who is adventurous and wants to get unplugged but not too far away from the comforts of home,. Great snorkeling and the beauty of Belize.
Use the basic telescope for stargazing, reference the book 'Birds of Belize' to identify the birds that you see from the deck. Make use of the small but growing personal library including 'Belize: Reefs, Rain Forests, and Mayan Ruins'
Every morning my wife and I liked to drink coffee on the veranda and watch the birds fish for breakfast off the side of the house when the water was up, watch the ocean crabs, schools of fish, iguanas... we saw something new every day.
I like to lay in one of the hammocks with a rum/fresh juice drink and read, but I find holding the book up to much work!
