Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1full bathroom, sleeps 4-6

After many years of adventures in Belize, we realized our dream of building a home there. When we are not enjoying it, we choose to rent it to others interested in discovering the wonders of Belize. We love to explore Mayan ruins, snorkel on the barrier reef, enjoy local culture and food, bird watch, read and relax ! We also enjoy to working on our house and yard!

SEAcluded Sands is a privately owned, beachfront home, located one and a third miles north of 'downtown' San Pedro, in the quiet residential neighborhood called Tres Cocos. There is a new bridge but still are no cars (except taxis) on this part of the island. You can walk, rent a golfcart, ride bicycles, use the Island Ferry or water taxi services to get to town. For your adventures, you will be picked up and returned to the end of the dock in the photograph, which is right in your front yard.

House Layout: The house features two verandas and has all living spaces on the second floor. This arrangement provides a superior view of the Caribbean Sea as well as well as the lagoon, and takes full advantage of the tropical breeze. The veranda off the living room and dining room opens to a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. It is the perfect place to start your day with a cup of Belizean coffee and a book, watching the sunrise. Later, after a day of adventures, you can watch the moon through the palm trees and relax in the quiet of the evening.

Each bedroom has a queen bed with drawers below and a large closet. Both bedrooms open onto another veranda with a view of the lagoon, it's birds and spectacular sunsets! The futon couch in the living room opens into a double bed with closet space in the hall. There is also a twin size Aero bed available. This configuration can accommodate three couples on a budget, a family with children or be a spacious romantic getaway for a couple.

The kitchen is well equipped for those who want to explore cooking Caribbean cuisine with local fruits, vegetables and seafood. There is also a gas grill. The decor of the home is simple and features local crafts and woods. Both bedrooms have air conditioning and all areas have ceiling fans. We suggest renters reserve a golf cart for at least the first few days of their trip. Wireless internet is available for a charge of $60.00 USD. Cable TV, DVD player, beach towels, cell phone and bottled drinking water are included.

Management: Our home is managed by my niece and nephew who own and operate the award winning SEAduced By Belize tour company, as well as the Black Orchid Spa. Their staff can help with any and all of your plans and questions while you are in town. When you arrive in San Pedro, simply take a taxi the three blocks to their tour office. They will check you in then take you to the house and show you it's details.

Please note: This is a privately owned home and is not part of an apartment or condominium complex. There is a neighborhood security guard but not an on site manager. We are aware that many people are not familiar with travel in Belize. Feel free to call as we gladly answer all questions to the best of our ability..

About Carolyn

We are a semi retired couple from Oregon. Wayne is an environmental consultant and I am a hospital art teacher in pediatric oncology. I first traveled to Belize in 1973 when it was British Honduras and since 1994, we have been coming almost every year. In 2001 we started looking for property and Rebecca found this lot on 9/11. Because of the attack, all flights were grounded so we bought it sight unseen! We knew the area well and it had 7 coconut trees, that seemed fine enough with us! We designed and had the house built the house in 2006.

Carolyn purchased this house in 2001

Why Carolyn chose San Pedro

We loved the location because it is close enough to town that we can easily bicycle in for dinner or groceries yet, far enough away to be peaceful and quiet.

Beautiful House in Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us spent eight nights here and it was perfect. The house is beautiful, the location is just north of the bridge in a beautiful neighborhood. The town is really close. We rented a golf cart while we were there for our entire stay which I highly recommend. We were able to eat in most nights (which we preferred). The kitchen had everything that we needed. This did not feel like a rental but more like a home. AC in the bedrooms kept us plenty cool at night. The owner was quick to respond with my questions and very accommodating in every way. I can't say enough good things about this house. We will definitely stay there again if we go back!

Perfect spot! Close enough to town but still secluded

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here with another couple and it really was a perfect set up for us. It's close enough to town (you still need a golf cart) that you can go in and out of town when you want but sits on the beach far enough north that the beach in front of the house is typically pretty quiet. The house is basic but is everything you'd want for a week at the beach. We could cook a few meals here and there so we didn't have to eat out all the time. Bring a lot of bug spray as the island can be buggy and I wouldn't recommend this place for more than 4 people as only the two bedrooms are air conditioned (not the living room). But I would 100% stay in this house again next time I go back. A really awesome setup and the owner and their staff were really helpful. See ya next time seacluded sands!

Very much what I had hoped for. Neat clean and bonus items like spices and sugar and a couple left over beers. All and all a lovely stay.

Superb setting, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Secluded Sands. It is situated just enough out of town so that it is quiet and away from the bustle of San Pedro. With a golf cart it's an easy commute to town. The house is nicely outfitted -- there was nothing we lacked. I highly recommend this property.

Peaceful, Private, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything for a perfect stay. The views from this place are stunning, it makes it hard to leave the house. To avoid the toll we rented bikes easy ride to town. Nearby are fruit and vegetable stand, grocery store, tortilla stand and bakery, these are also an easy bike ride from the house. Plenty of good restaurants are a short walk. Wonderful to walk on the beach to restaurants to eat and drink. The house has very good WiFi and TV. The air conditioning and quiet made for a very comfortable sleep. Perfect vacation spot.
