About Katia Paradis
We built our dream house property in 2008 and feel it is the best place to live in Belize!
Katia Paradis purchased this House in 2008
Why Katia Paradis chose Santa Elena
The property sets on the top of a breezy hill with a majestic view we never get tired of looking at. It offers the privacy and intimacy of a resort while not being too isolated and close to the groceries store and bustling village life. In fact, we were not the first one to find this location as a premium spot, while building the foundations of the house, we found 2 ancient Mayan foundations laying one on top of another. We believe it is a great property for those who go for the car rental option, preferably a SUV, either in San Ignacio or Belize City and explore the area at their own rhythm without being bound to any schedule. The road access to the house is a dirt path, often bumpy, that gets muddy on rainy season. Drop-offs or pick-ups in town available.
What makes this House unique
On days where everyone complains about heat and humidity and get to our place, they are always surprised by how much more comfortable and cooler it is up there. The locations is ideal : close to town with spectacular views but it feels like far away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
20th Anniversary Get Away
My husband and I wanted to take the kids to do something amazing for our 20th Anniversary. This was the perfect choice. We saw much beauty and had some great adventures. The house was perfect and those associated with the house were very warm, kind and helpful. Thanks very much, we will never forget our time spent in Santa Elena.
Lovely residence with an amazing view.
The home, grounds, and staff were fantastic enough to make this a great rental, but the view from the porch and pool is magnificent. The fog between the hills at sunrise, brisk breeze from the Caribbean in the afternoons, the abundance of flowering plants and stone paths. There are several fruiting trees and bird feeders kept full that attract all sorts of colorful birds. We saw two different types of toucans everyday. It was almost too difficult to go out adventuring because the home is so comfortable and the landscape so beautiful. It is also very conveniently located to the amenities of town and all of Cayo districts sightseeing.
Beautiful vista, grounds and home!
Beautiful views, grounds and wonderful hospitality!
I would highly recommend staying at This home. It’s inviting, warm, and quiet.
The entire house is well equipped with anything you need, even coffee and olive oil. We had such a wonderful time. Consuela also cooked for us one night, fabulous meal for a fabulous day!!!! Thank you-
A great stay in Santa Elena!
We had a great time. The location is quite remote, making it a peaceful refuge to hang out on. Watched Mgr the birds on the backyard is great. The pool was a lifesaver on the heat.
A very unique and cool house.
Consuela was awesome as well. Cooked us a nice meal on our arrival.
Perfect house for a getaway with the family. My wife and our two young boys spent three perfect days at the house. Good location for day outings. One of the nicest and coolest houses we've stayed at....and the CD collection! Outstanding! Thanks again Katia!
