Imagine a man to so loved his house that he moved it from the mainland, across the Reef and unto the island where it sits today. It almost sank twice and pieces of it had to be retrieved. Amidst stories and legends, we bought this house a few years ago. It has been renovated and we are pleased to offer it to you for your island vacation.
This is a beautifully remodeled, 3 bedroom, 3-bath house directly on the beach, within sight of the incredible Belizean reef a mere quarter mile away. The views of the Sea are nothing short of spectacular and the crystal clear water is perfect for kayaking right from your private pier.
The Iguana House gets its name from a colony of iguana that lives in the stone retaining wall in front of the house: you can watch their antics from the front deck of the house. From this retaining wall extends a private pier for your personal use. From here, you have easy access to all the amazing sites for fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving: our guide can pick you up and drop you off just a few meters from your front door.
The huge front deck provides a great area for enjoying the views and the Caribbean breeze while you dine or sun bath or just hang out. Prepare your catch-of-the-day on the outside grill. A bottle of cold white wine from the local grocery and…what could be better!?
When you step inside the house, the first thing you’ll notice is beautiful woodwork. The house is completely air-conditioned, but most folks find the sea breeze more desirable than the A/C.
