Completed in 2014 Laura's Lookout is a beach front property located on South Caye Caulker, north of the islands airstrip. Conveniently located only a short 5 minute bike ride or a 10 minute walk to the downtown area, the house and it's surrounding area retain the unspoiled, quiet nature Caye Caulker is known for. The interior layout is perfect for either a family or group of friends, with two bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath downstairs and a more private Master suite upstairs, with two twin beds that convert into king bed if you would prefer, again with it's own full bath. The sheets are 400 thread count, and the towels plentiful, thick and lush. If needed, there are additional mattresses for singles who would prefer not to share beds. Additionally, air conditioning is provided for each room, with it's own separate controls for each room.The living area features an open floor plan that includes a newly modern kitchen with a full appliance range and extra drinks fridge, a washing machine area for your use, a dining area and lounge area with flat screen TV; a movie library and wi-fi are included. Built by a nearby Mennonite community, the workmanship is exceptional: quality hand crafted wood floors, ceilings and furniture that evoke the hard wood forests Belize is known for. Perhaps, however, one of the many great features of the house would be the full length, private front deck off the living area. Commanding unbelievable views of the sea and nearby (less than a mile away),world famous reef , it is truly breathtaking and not to be missed. It is only accessible through a door off the kitchen, ensuring privacy for all, with two Belizean woven hammocks for afternoon naps. As you leave the house down a short flight of stairs, you first encounter the 35 x 15 foot private outdoor pool, available only to guests, complete with rafts, sunken into a wood deck that respects the palm trees that were there before and many chaises for sunbathing. Turning the corner to your right around the house, you encounter the man made beach area, jutting 50 feet into the sea, which converts to a volleyball court when needed, but also provides another area in which to relax and enjoy the sun. Finally, just beyond the beach area, you come upon the 300 foot dock which has just recently been expanded. With three separate entrances to the water below, there is room to dock your boat (if you have one!!), 6 pods extending outward for more room and a palapa at the end of the dock if you require shade. Covered with chaise lounges, you would be hard pressed to find a better place on Caye Caulker to just sit and relax, or watch the incredible sunsets. Laura'a Lookout has also been fully designed with safety in mind. Featuring protection on all first level windows, there is only one entrance to the house, accessible from the pool deck, away from public paths. Additionally, we have an on site, 24 hour security guard. During the day, our office hours are 9:00-5:00, so that someone is always on hand to help with your needs.
A few recommendations:
Snorkeling, Deep Sea Fishing or Shark Alley: Carlos Tours, who is a longtime resident of Caye Caulker. He can take large groups and/or customize a day excursion for you. He will meet you right at the dock.
Dining: Rosie's, for fresh fish caught that morning; The Pasta Factory, for fresh pastas made daily, The Rainbow Restaurant, something for everyone; Caye Caulker Pizza, excellent for the kids or a light meal; Il Pellicano, more expensive, but terrific Italian food with a Caribbean flair; Habanero's is arguably the best food on the island but not as cheap as many other options such as Syd's, for traditional Belizean fare; The Caye Caulker Bakery, for some of the best, fresh daily cinnamon rolls you have ever had!
Don't Miss: The Split, located at the North End of the island. If you can tear yourself away from the sunsets at the end of the dock, this is a great alternative, and also fun for drinks all day, anytime!
