Punta Negra cottage description

Constructed from Belizian hardwoods these two self-catering studio cabanas were designed to blend into the environment. Both units run off clean solar energy, use a rain water collection system for their water supply and are equipped with butane stoves, refrigerators and on-demand water heaters.

While we do have two cabanas available for guests part of the appeal of Sabal Beach is the privacy and quiet offered here. To ensure that our guests are able to appreciate the setting we only rent the first floor cabana in conjunction with the second floor. Bottom line: you will never have a neighbor unless you are traveling with others and choose to be together.

The studios are fully furnished and kitchens are equipped with everything needed. Each studio has a queen size bed, full bathroom with hot & cold running water, table & chairs and outdoor seating/hammock area on the deck. Large windows on all sides, multi-speed ceiling fans and insulated roofs maximize the natural ocean breezes to keep the units cool.

The village of Punta Negra (which consists of about 20 villagers) lies approximately 2 miles south. You can walk for 5 miles north along the beach and encounter nothing manmade or 7 miles south and pass only a handful of houses. If walking is not your style we also have 2 sea kayaks available for guest use.

If you enjoy being part of nature this is a unique opportunity but it is not for everyone. If you need TV, a hairdryer, dishwasher, and a local bar this may not be the place for you.

If, however, the idea of a cocktail on the dock or from your hammock under the palms without other tourists around appeals to your sense of travel then you will love Sabal Beach.

              Car: Not Necessary

              Sabal Beach is on a 12 mile strip of undeveloped beach sandwiched between a marine reserve to the front and a national park to the rear. For those that like being immersed in nature, both on land and in the water, this is an incredible spot!

              The fishing here is literally world-class whether you are going for the grand slam of permit, tarpon and bonefish while fly-fishing, chasing a bigger catch out at the reef, trolling the rivers or simply casting a line off the dock or shore.

              With the second largest barrier reef in the world and hundred of small islands (cayes) Belize is a dream destination for divers and snorkelers. The amount of aquatic life easily accessible locally is truly hard to beat and trips can be arranged leaving directly from our dock in the morning and returning that afternoon.

              While many of our guests come for the fishing, snorkeling or diving that Belize is best known for an equal number come simply to sway in a hammock without external distractions. There are few places left in the world where one can truly disconnect without throngs of tourists tagging along but this is one of them. We hope to see you here.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We are typically on-site at Sabal Beach and will be there to get you settled in, help you plan any trips if desired and answer questions. Originally we are both from the mid-Atlantic region in the US and have lived full-time in Belize since 2006. Our initial intent was to open a jungle lodge here in Belize but the more mud we trekked through and the more mosquito bites we endured looking for jungle property the more we started to shift our focus to the coast. Fortunately we found a beautiful and unspoiled place just north of Punta Negra in the Toledo District of Belize in 2007. After obtaining our residency we completed construction of the cabanas and beach house in April of 2010 and have enjoyed renting the units to travelers looking for a spot off the typical tourist route.

              Why the Owner Chose Punta Negra:
              The natural beauty of this spot is very hard to beat.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We chose Sabal Beach because it is nestled between a marine reserve to the front and a national park to the rear. No traffic, no noise (other then waves and birds), no hassles. What is not to like?
