Or just relax in the shade on one of the other large deck spaces.
The casitas offer one bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. In addition many offer the added convenience of a loft with twins or a double bed and a futon in the living room.
A small onsite grocery store provides limited staples without going in to either the nearby villages or even corozal.

About Stephen Honeybill
I am a native of England that like many of my fellow countrymen have traveled the world. By the age of 26 I had settled in upstate New York, but continued to travel in my public television career. After retiring at 55 from my first career I started my own small construction company. By 2010 I decided that life was to short to work all hours and so started investigating opportunities overseas. Having traveled to a number of countries in Central and South America previously and understanding the difficulties of blending into their cultures, I was heartened by my discovery of Belize. People understood me (I speak only English) and I discovered a culture that was an amazing blend of all the different cultures that have been melded together of centuries. The Queen of England still adorns the money and business, banking, legal matters, politics and the TV is all English. I had come home to a place where the weather is always great!
Stephen Honeybill purchased this house in 2012
Why Stephen Honeybill chose Corozal
I landed on this property by boat after crossing the Bay of Chetumal from the Yucatan Peninsular one November day in 2010. It was love at first sight! At the time the casitas (small homes) were under construction and therefore I couldn't even stay the night, but the seed was planted. After a subsequent trip a month later I decided to jump in with both feet. Within 6 months I had broken ground on The Crimson Orchid Inn, which today I now run as a unique, and growing more luxurious by the day, Bed & Breakfast with a rooftop bar.
Many of the casita and other home owners have entrusted me with renting out their home-away-from-home when they are not fortunate enough to be here. This gives me the opportunity to meet a wide cross-section of fascinating travelers thereby giving me a view of the rest of the world without even having to live with 'the madding crowd'.
What makes this house unique
The cooling breezes of the trade winds make the rooftop terrace and bar a wonderful place to relax by day or night. The Crimson Orchid is just a 2 minute stroll from the Tradewinds Bar & Grill, the infinity edged pool, the beach in front of that, and the calm shallow waters of the bay. We are surrounded by jungle therefore see all sorts of wildlife including foxes, coatimundi, parrots, dolphin, manatee, and assorted wild cats. All of the casitas are within a five minute stroll and share all the benefits of The Crimson Orchid Inn.
