Iguana house narrative
May 26, 2014

Imagine a man who so loved his house that he brought it all the way from the mainland, across 35 miles of sea, risking complete disintegration of the structure, and, finally, planting it in a beautiful spot on the Isla Bonita, 4 ½ north of San Pedro, where it was eventually renovated by an American architect from whom the current owners bought it, amidst stories and legends that had arisen around the house over its long life.

This is a totally renovated, 3-bedroom, 3-bath house with a spacious living/dining room, and a modern kitchen. it can accommodate up to six people comfortably. It has over a thousand square feet of deck which faces the reef just beyond the front gate. The sea breeze makes it a great place to hang out and enjoy the sun and the sea; and the reef beckons one to kayak and snorkel and fish. The private pier has been rebuilt and a modest swimming feature has been added.

Fishing trips, tours to amazing snorkeling and diving sites as well as adventures to the mainland to visit Mayan ruins, can be taken right from the front door of the iguana house. Or you can take out a kayak and have your own adventure on the reef.

This is a neighborhood house and, although you are about four and a half miles from San Pedro, you’ll find friendly neighbors, great restaurants and a convenient grocery store within walking distance. If you need to go to town, there is a regular coastal ferry service which makes the run to and from town. Private water taxis are also available. Golf carts can be rented by the day or the week and, although the roads can be rough, are often the most convenient option. The most cost effective option will be determined by how many people are traveling together.

It’s private at the iguana house, but not remote.

Some of the rates you might anticipate are as follows:

Weekly rate for golf cart: $350.00us

Coastal express: $7.00us, one way, per person, to or from San Pedro

Private water taxi: $40us (up to six persons), one way to or from San Pedro

The owners, Jim and Nicky, are committed to providing you with the orientation, support and availability that will make your Caribbean vacation wonderful.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: The Iguana House is a team effort: Christina does the bookings, sends out the rental agreements and directs the payment options. She works for CNF Catering, a lovely company owned by my sister, and her main love is fashion. We (Jim and Nicky) are on the island and make sure our guests are properly oriented and settled in. Nicky is from Rugby, England ("...where the game was invented") and I'm from Santa Fe, New Mexico. We met in Santa Fe 10 years ago while Nicky was visiting. Between us, we have 6 grown kids and four grandchildren (and counting). I bought this house in 2008 when Nicky and I were visiting. We looked at condos and apartments, but wanted something with more character and possibilities, and also a fence for our dogs. Only a free standing home could offer that and the Iguana House was perfect. We discovered how much it sucked to be without water and we added a fifty thousand gallon cistern which provides filtered rainwater year round. And as the Iguana House became more popular, we added an owner's cottage at the rear of the property. Nicky is happiest when engaged with people and she offers our quests information with charm and humor. In fact, our guests often mention her in the reviews. She makes the guests feel as though they were the only ones to ever visit the Iguana House. She is well-loved and well connected on the island. Together, we want to provide our guests the best Caribbean vacation possible.

Why San Pedro:
Have a real, home from home caribbean vacation.
