San Pedro house description

Welcome to Paradise....With all the amenities. This 2,200 s.F.Ocean Front Hacienda has just been completed in Dec.'06. Built with the family or up to 3 couples in mind. This home sits right on the beach, 6 miles north of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, where the 18th parallel crosses this beautiful island....Hence our name 18 Degrees North.

As you walk out the front door there is a 55' long verandah which offers you cover from the occasional tropical shower and the Caribbean sun, the 1st step down is to the pool which has built in seats so you can easily read and sun while in the water, ten strides past the pool deck and your across the sand and on our 250' pier which has 2 large hammocks set up under the 16'x16' grass thatched palapa, one step down at the end of the pier is a swimming dock for those who like the salt water of the Caribbean (large wooden steps afford easy ocean access)


Kitchen has most of the amenities of a modern home.We have hooked up purified water that runs through the refrigerator/freezer thus you will have a continuous supply of pure water and ice cubes. There is an island with a sink that faces the Caribbean and french doors overlooking the pool, so that whomever has cooking duty can enjoy the view and the breeze.

One bedroom has a king size bed and the other two queens. Large closets, 2 sinks and large walk-in glass block showers are part of each bedroom. Laundry room with washer and dryer. Iron and both beach and bathroom towels are provided. Each bedroom has a porch out the french doors with seating for two.

There is a spacious living room which also has French doors that open to the pool area. Here you will find a growing selection of reading materials, cable tv and internet, dvd, cd, and the xm radio receiver. The furniture throughout is built for people of above average size.( the owner is 6'5' and weighs 250 lbs) the day time temperature is usually in the 80's most of the year, but with the French doors open onto the front verandah and a usually steady breeze off the ocean you will stay comfortable .
Ernesto and Sammantha, our caretakers, are here on site to make your visit comfortable. Their home is located about 150' behind the Hacienda where you will stay. They can help you with knowledge of local activities,restaurants, shopping, etc. And for additional charges Ernesto will take you fishing, snorkeling or lobster diving, etc, etc. and when you come back Samantha will cook it in the Belizean way.


When you rent at 18 Degrees North it include pick up and delivery to the San Pedro Airstrip, as well as one boat trip to town and back each day. We hope to see you soon at 18 Degrees North.

                          About: Married couple with 3 adult children ages 22, 24, and 26 from Pearland Texas. I run my own business and Teresa is a high school math teacher looking to retire in a few years. When we first visited Ambergris Caye we knew this is where we wanted to retire and when we saw this property we fell in love with it. There is no better place in the world than sitting on the verandah looking out over the Caribbean, whether at sunrise, high noon or a starlit night....and when you happen to be there at full moon time...unBelizable! We have found our piece of heaven, we hope you can share it with us. Wes & Teresa
