San Ignacio house description

As of 8 November 2008, Casa Nan is equipped and ready for your visit

As of December 2009, we have a low mileage, excellent condition, Isuzu Rodeo, 2 wheel drive, 5 passenger with auto transmission and air conditioning for hire with our driver to tour guests at a reasonable rate. Please ask about it when enquiring about the house. And a clothes washer for your laundry needs.

San Ignacio and sister town, Santa Elana is Belize's second largest urban area with a population of about 20,000, separated by the Macal River. It is located about 72 miles west from Belize City, and 22 miles west of Belmopan (capital of Belize). 15 miles further west is the Guatemala border. San Ignacio is in the heart of the sight-seeing tours of rivers, waterfalls and Mayan ruins. Venture downtown to one of the local tour guides and plan your days of fun and sun. Their rates are excellent, and its cheaper than renting a car and trying to find your own way to the sights.

We have named the house 'CASA NAN' in honor of my mother. She is now 99 years young, and all through her years, she has always welcomed everyone into her home and hospitality. Our friends, our children's friends, and everyone else call her Nan or Nanny. So in her honor, 'Welcome to CASA NAN'

The house is ideally located on the small hill just 450 yards from the downtown, or just 225 yards from the renowned San Ignacio Resort Hotel. It is on a quiet side street, with paved roads, quiet neighbors and lots of lovely trees and flower gardens. The yard is fully fenced, with a gated driveway and security bars on the windows. Off the master bedroom balcony is a producing grapefruit tree, off the front balcony is a large plum tree. Young banana trees and a coconut palm at the front fence and a huge hibiscus beside the kitchen window. If the trees are in season, be sure to give the fruit a try. The property caregiver lives right next door. If you have any questions, ask him. He is a wealth of Belize and local happenings and history. Not sure where to go, or what to do, he will be most helpful. He will help you arrange a tour of what you want to see and do, and makes it a very personalized experience. He is a big reason why we came to love Belize, and in particular, San Ignacio and area. I am sure you will feel the same way as we do.

The house was purchased in May 2008 and comes with all new furniture and appliances. The kitchen has all the items you will need to feel at home. A trip to the store and the local outdoor fruit and vegetable market and you will be set to enjoy the serenity of your own space, sitting under the trees with a cool drink and listen to the birds. The bedrooms come equipped with their own air conditioners for a cool nights sleep. We have a gas hot water heater for the showers and kitchen.

We have made the house as safe, secure and equipped as possible. If there is something you might require, please feel free to ask the property host, Manuel, for help or advise. A pick up at Belize City airport can be arranged for transport to the house. At this time, the cost is $100 (US Dollars) and is payable to the driver. It fast and efficient and the rate is much cheaper than taking a taxi from the airport. Please advise me when booking the house if you wish to use his service. It is a 1.75 to 2.00 hour journey. He can make himself available at a very reasonable rate to hire him and his vehicle to take your party out and about to the local sights. He is very knowledgable of the area, history, and sights that you might not get to see on your own, or with a commercial tour.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              Why the Owner Chose San Ignacio:
              We have visited Mexico on numerous occassions, and never found all of what we were looking for in one place. On our first trip to Belize, we fell in love with the town and the people and the surroundings of San Ignacio. We cancelled the last half of our holiday and stayed in town to complete the dealings with the realtor on the house now know as CASA NAN.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Get some over ripe fruit out on the upper balcony for the birds. Just about sunrise, sit out and relax with a steaming cup of tea or coffee, watch the mist rise up through the trees, and the toucans and parrots come for breakfast.
