Corozal bed and breakfast description

Orchid bay offers a variety of accommodations including casitas, larger homes and the Crimson Orchid Inn. With one or more bedrooms available in each beach club home, you can either self cater or enjoy a relaxing meal at either the Tradewinds bar and grill, the Crimson Orchid or perhaps one of the other restaurants located within easy driving or cycling distance.

The Crimson Orchid Inn offers 6 rooms with queen sized beds and ensuite bathrooms, 2 rooms with two twin sized beds and ensuite bathrooms, and a palatial bridal suite that has a bathroom fit for a king and his queen. The rooftop terrace offers sunbathing by day and star gazing by night. Refresh yourself at the bar whilst gazing across the casitas thatched roofs to the bay and cerros peninsula, the jungle, or into the gardens of pescadores park. Or just relax in the shade on one of the other large deck spaces.

The casitas offer one bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. In addition many offer the added convenience of a loft with twins or a double bed and a futon in the living room.

A small onsite grocery store provides limited staples without going in to either the nearby villages or even corozal.

              Car: Recommended

              Orchid Bay is a peaceful, gated community located between the jungle and the placid waters of Chetumal Bay. It's position right on the bay offers the early riser the opportunity to watch sunrise over the jungle. Tropical days and nights are almost equal year round. The sun sets over the end of the bay in a myriad of colors that tug at the heart strings each day. By night you can enjoy the dark non-light-polluted skies from the rooftop bar at the Crimson Orchid Inn whilst sipping on an ice cold refreshment. During the northern winter-spring see both the North Star and the Southern Cross above the horizon and the Milky Way.

              We are located approximately 12 miles from the conservative Mennonite community of Little Belize. You can step backwards in time 100 years as you travel through this agricultural community that covers 100 square miles. Small tours are also available in one of their traditional carts pulled by a pony.

              We will arrange tours of Mayan city ruins - Lamanai, Altun Ha, Xibalba-the Mayan underworld in the caves of Actun Tunichil Muknal (Cave of the Crystal Sepulchre), boat or 'puddle-jumper' trips to the Cayes and the reef, cave tubing, and much more.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I am a native of England that like many of my fellow countrymen have traveled the world. By the age of 26 I had settled in upstate New York, but continued to travel in my public television career. After retiring at 55 from my first career I started my own small construction company. By 2010 I decided that life was to short to work all hours and so started investigating opportunities overseas. Having traveled to a number of countries in Central and South America previously and understanding the difficulties of blending into their cultures, I was heartened by my discovery of Belize. People understood me (I speak only English) and I discovered a culture that was an amazing blend of all the different cultures that have been melded together of centuries. The Queen of England still adorns the money and business, banking, legal matters, politics and the TV is all English. I had come home to a place where the weather is always great!

              Why the Owner Chose Corozal:
              I landed on this property by boat after crossing the Bay of Chetumal from the Yucatan Peninsular one November day in 2010. It was love at first sight! At the time the casitas (small homes) were under construction and therefore I couldn't even stay the night, but the seed was planted. After a subsequent trip a month later I decided to jump in with both feet. Within 6 months I had broken ground on The Crimson Orchid Inn, which today I now run as a unique, and growing more luxurious by the day, Bed & Breakfast with a rooftop bar. Many of the casita and other home owners have entrusted me with renting out their home-away-from-home when they are not fortunate enough to be here. This gives me the opportunity to meet a wide cross-section of fascinating travelers thereby giving me a view of the rest of the world without even having to live with 'the madding crowd'.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
              The cooling breezes of the trade winds make the rooftop terrace and bar a wonderful place to relax by day or night. The Crimson Orchid is just a 2 minute stroll from the Tradewinds Bar & Grill, the infinity edged pool, the beach in front of that, and the calm shallow waters of the bay. We are surrounded by jungle therefore see all sorts of wildlife including foxes, coatimundi, parrots, dolphin, manatee, and assorted wild cats. All of the casitas are within a five minute stroll and share all the benefits of The Crimson Orchid Inn.
