Discover the tranquility of your own Caribbean villa with its panoramic view of the sea. Relax in the privacy of your own swimming pool. Stretch out in a hammock and dream to the rustling sound of the palm trees swaying above in the gentle breezes. Measure time…by sunrise and sunset.
Because of the beautiful and peaceful location of El Castillo de Arena, its thoughtful and handsome design and décor, and its overall commitment to excellence and subdued elegance, the “Sandcastle” is regarded as one of Belize’s finest 2-bedroom oceanfront villas. This first-floor villa is located 5 miles north of San Pedro town on beautiful Ambergris Caye, Belize, Central America in the sought-after Mata Grande area.
Features that are particularly appealing include nature itself: quiet relaxation, picturesque views and privacy with easy access to calm, sparkling clear waters; an orange sun and shimmering moon rising out of the sea before you; colorful ever blooming flowers and lush green foliage that surround the villa; soothing tropical trade winds and a clean white sandy beach directly on the Caribbean.
By day, El Castillo de Arena is drenched in sunshine and the view from your villa and rooftop patio is of turquoise sea and the second largest barrier reef in the world. Take a quiet stroll down the beach, fish or snorkel off your own private pier or take a refreshing dip in your own pool on your 3rd floor patio after sunbathing.
At dusk as the sun sets and the lights slowly fade, the villa undergoes a magical transformation. Relax on the rooftop and watch some of the most beautiful flaming sunsets you will ever see. Further into the evening, have a romantic dinner while gazing at the stars that seem impossibly bright and close in the clear night sky or watch the passing cruise ships on the horizon.
Although you come for relaxation and solitude, the quaint town of San Pedro, with its shops and nightlife is only a 15-minute boat ride. There are also a couple fabulous restaurants and a grocery store within a 10-minute walk. Belize offers world class scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing and jungle tours. Visit an ancient Mayan temple, float on an inner tube through miles of caves, dive the amazing Blue Hole or get close and personal with the creatures of the sea at the marine park.
The 2-bedroom, air conditioned private villa sleeps up to six adults and has a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining area, covered veranda, thatch roof palapa with bar area on the beach, Sunset Tower with private pool and a private pier.
The 'Sunset Tower' is your third floor patio with a 360 degree view of paradise. Rejuvenate your body after soaking up the Caribbean sun with a refreshing plunge in the 4' deep 10'x14' dip pool. The patio furniture and table offer a wonderful spot for dining while viewing the beautiful turquoise Caribbean waters or breathtaking sunsets. Large French doors from the living area open to reveal beautiful views from the private outdoor covered veranda with table and chairs where you can watch the sunrise over morning coffee. Enjoy direct access to the beach right out the door. Across the white sandy beach lies your private pier with swim deck, perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing or to try your luck at reeling in your fish dinner.
A full-time caretaker lives on the property to assist with anything needed.
