Overview

Orchid Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The Orchid Bay Beach Club is a growing eco-friendly resort community on the Northern coast of Belize. It is a private and quiet getaway - perfect for those who need a retreat away from it all to relax and enjoy nature in style.

Our ocean front Casita is recently completed and located at the Orchid Bay Beach Club on the Bay of Chetumal. It is in a prime location in the resort and very well appointed. Parking, the Restaurant, the pool and the beach are only footsteps away!

The Orchid Bay Community is refreshingly different in feel and flow, much like the beautiful people and nature of Belize. Enjoy all the modern conveniences of home year round with gentle breezes that invite you to swim, sail, fish, paddle board and hike amidst Mother Nature's finest. Take a stroll through our preserved nature trails. Take a dip in the pool. Put your feet up and feel the breeze while sipping your favorite drink on our front porch, the beach, or under a Palapa swinging in a hammock. Whatever your pleasure, Orchid Bay offers an idyllic retreat from the Every Day.

The Tradewinds Restaurant is open for lunch, dinner and drinks for our guests from 11am-9pm 7 days a week. Most guests choose to cook some of their own meals, and grocery shop right outside the airport in Belize City before heading in to Orchid Bay. Our on site Guest Services Representative can also assist with obtaining whatever you wish.

Car or boat shuttles can be arranged to take you to the airports, Corozal Town, Chetumal, or wherever you want to go. A trip to Ambergris Cay for Cay Cauker is also a short plane ride away for the amazing diving, snorkeling, or taking in the sights of the bustling island and reef. There is information at the Welcome Center Kiosk right next to our Casita. The folks at the Tradewinds Restaurant are great resources to learn more and help set up excursions for you.

There are several ways to get into Orchid Bay. If coming by land, travel up the Nothern Highway then over dirt roads through farmland, small villages, and cross two barge bridges. Guests arriving by boat come directly to the end of our dock. Flying into Belize allows you to see the diverse landscape and waters this beautiful country has to offer.

The local currency is the Belize Dollar, and the exchange rate is pegged 2:1 to the US Dollar (so it doesn't fluctuate). Conveniently for Americans, the US Dollar is widely accepted and the native language of Belize is mainly English and Spanish.

About Nancy Baker Snowman

Mike and Nancy are from New England. 'We love spending time with family and friends while enjoying the beautiful coast of Maine.'

Nancy Baker Snowman purchased this house in 2010

Why Nancy Baker Snowman chose Corozal

'We often travel to warmer climates for business or pleasure, and have seen many beautiful places. We were invited to visit the Orchid Bay Beach Club in 2009 and instantly fell in love with the place. We knew right away that we had to buy a home there. Of all the resorts and developments we've seen over the years, this one is the most unique. It is a great place to either live, invest, or simply go for vacation. We're thrilled with our Casita, and hope those that stay there will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Orchid Bay is designed to be a peaceful community. The Caribbean Sea is always warm and inviting so you can enjoy swimming, sailing, fishing, boating, and paddle boarding anytime of the year. But the fun doesn't stop at the water! Hike through the lush tropical rainforests of Punta Alegre, home to unexcavated Maya ruins, an early 20th century chilero camp and crystal clear Barracuda Lake. Explore the Mayan Ruins at Cerros or visit the Butterfly Breeding Center at Shipstern Reserve just a few miles away. Take a stroll through our preserved nature trails or take a dip in the pool.

Extremely well appointed unit.

  • 4 of 5

The overall development has huge potential but needs hands on, active , qualified management. No sun beds or umbrellas on beach, what chairs and cushions exist are long overdue a cleaning. The restaurant has an extremely limited menu, having said that the operators and staff are exceedingly kind and helpful.

My advice would be to choose a direction, find some capital and go for it.

Very isolated but beautiful resort

  • 4 of 5

The casita was lovely but we were in thE one closest to the restaurant and pool. 1 good thing - we could pick up the wifi in casita but it was noisy. The resort itself is very remote and very beautiful! The staff was very nice. We hoped to do some fishing while we were there. But emails regarding this said to wait until we arrived to plan. Not sure. If we could have planned anything by then as it sounded like we needed to go back to Orange Walk to meet guide!!! But it was too cold for good fishing anyway so I cannot comment further.

Lovely quiet relaxing resort with very comfortable casitas.

  • 5 of 5

Although it is somewhat isolated, it is a pleasant place to relax. Night skies are amazing. People very friendly..a pleasant surprise. Bike rentals are great for exploring the few surrounding villages and other resorts. It would be best to have a car as then able to explore further afar. Grounds around casitas are nicely landscaped. Lots of areas to enjoy the water or to read. Cast as well equipped!! David and team provide info on interesting yours and trips as well as accommodate transportation. Very pleasant stay.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week of Christmas and it was absolutely beautiful. The casita has everything you will ever need except food. That's all on you and there is a restaurant right across the driveway. My only complaint was the showerhead but hey, things could be way worse. We informed the property mgr just in passing, no biggie deal. A $10 showerhead will solve that problem. I highly recommend this casita. You can sit at the kitchen table and see the water and the dock. It was very soothing. You will most definitely need a 4x4 to get here since Ferry Road is, well, let's just say, use it as an obstacle course. We made it a game every time we drove in and out. The 2 ferries to get in an out on Ferry Road are an adventure and makes for great memories and stories back home.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this Casita. It had everything we needed. Loved having the washer and dryer there so we didn't have to take home any dirty clothes. We will definitely come back and stay there again!
