Maya Beach cottage description
Located on the magnificent southern coast of Belize on the northern end of the Placencia Peninsula, Maya Beach is a small village surrounded by water on all sides, and can be conveniently reached by car or by plane. It is a hidden jewel on the road less traveled and Cashew Tree Cottage is centrally located right in the heart of Maya Beach. See available dates below.
November 2, 2013 - January 11, 2014.
The cottage sits on a quarter acre in a lush tropical setting with abundant bird life. Unlike most hotels and resorts, you have the option of complete privacy and independence - or the convenience of community a short walk away. It is a fully furnished one bedroom plus den with A/C and ceiling fans in every room. It has a separate fully equipped kitchen, provides linens and towels, drinking water, hot showers, free cable t.v.and internet and a washer and dryer. Our weekly rate is all inclusive - you will not be charged for anything extra.
Our rates remain the same all year round including peak season. We maintain a smoke free cottage and provide designated outdoor smoking areas.
Across the street is an unspoiled white sandy beach known for its snorkeling and swimming so bring your gear. We leave lots of tour excursion pamphlets inside the cottage for our guests. If you take five minutes to walk up our tree lined back road you will reach a bus stop, a grocery store, ocean view restaurants and bars, an internet cafe and an art gallery. A short bike ride up the hill and you will reach an outdoor patio and pool serving happy hour drinks and appetizers. One of the unique things about the village of Maya Beach is that there are more bicycles than cars.
You can throw out a fishing line from the private boat dock in the backyard of the cottage overlooking a large canal at the mouth of the Placencia Lagoon. Or, you can chill out in a hammock overlooking the canal from the heights of our screened in veranda. If you want a little more exercise, you can rent a kayak and paddle up the lagoon and through the maze of canals that make up Maya Beach - - and finish your excursion at the dock in our backyard.
We cater to retired and mature couples wanting a relaxing and romantic getaway, since we are located in a safe village that is quiet at night. This year, Maya Beach gained a police post manned by two officers in a discrete wooden station house located on the corner of our private back road, so we could not be any safer! The cottage is surrounded by trees and is a cozy 860 square feet, just perfect for two adults. When you desire a change of pace hop on the local bus to a nearby tourist town which will expand your choice of restaurants, bars, shopping, and beach scenery. When you return to Maya Beach at the end of the day, you will no doubt feel thankful to be staying on a property that is quiet, safe and gorgeous - - full of charm and local flavor with the coziness of home.
The exchange rate in Belize is 2:1, two Belizean dollars for every American dollar making your money stretch twice as far, allowing you to enjoy the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean at Central American prices. Maya Beach can be reached in half an hour by connecting with Tropic Air at Belize International Airport on one of their many nonstop flights into Placencia Airstrip, or you can rent a car and take a road trip down the newly paved Hummingbird Highway known for its breathtaking views and reach in three hours.
Over time word will travel in tourist circles about the extraordinary beauty and affordability of Southern Belize. It is inevitable that change will come to the area so come and enjoy it before it changes too much.

Why the Owner Chose Maya Beach:
I am part of the baby boomer generation and was forced into an early retirement. When the economy went south, I too went south ... all the way to Belize. Now I get to spend part of the year in California with my grown kids and grand kids, and part of the year in sunny tropical beautiful Belize, where I sometimes feel like a kid myself! Maya Beach can be reached in half an hour from Belize International Airport by connecting with Tropic Air who offers several nonstop daily flights to the Placencia Airstrip, or on a three hour road trip of breathtaking scenery along the newly paved Hummingbird Highway.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Maya Beach is presently unspoiled and inexpensive but won't be for long. It is bursting with Afro-Caribbean, Mayan Indian, European and Spanish culture and remains one of the best kept secrets on the road less traveled ... without sacrificing all the comforts of home. It is a bird watcher's paradise and a haven for water sports on its beach side, with fishing and kayaking an added bonus on its lagoon side. The weather is breezy and sunny, the residents cheerful and generous, and the local government very welcoming of foreign retirees. We maintain a smoke free cottage and provide outdoor disignated smoking areas.
