About the Property
Romantic one bedroom house high in the canopy above the river: 2 bicycles & cano
Over the past three years, while building the Howler House, I have fantasized so much about this little house. To see my daydreams coming true is a constant feeling of joy — and now that the house is finished, I am ready to share my dream and welcome you to the Howler House — a unique luxury tree house vacation rental by owner.
Ideally the Howler House is a romantic spot for two, and my rates are based on this. If you have kids or want to bring along extra friends, they are welcome to sleep in the two hammocks on the screened in decks or in the living sitting area and the extra single bed on the screened in porch. The shower is hot and the breeze is constant - and there are five ceiling fans and a floor fan - so you will stay cool no matter what time of year you visit.
You can find the Howler House with a quick search, and you will see more photos and videos.
The Howler House is located in the little village of Burrell Boom, about 30 minutes from the international airport and centrally located. You will find the local people extraordinarily friendly and happy to meet you — if you take a moment to say hello. Remember, while people in the village may speak Creole, Spanish, and even Chinese and Mayan – they all, also speak English. So wander up to Miss Carol’s for a fish dinner and stop for cold beer or soda next door at Yellow Man’s traditional style pub with thatched roof. Maybe even play a game of dominoes with some of the locals.
CLOSE BY you will find
The Amazing Belize Zoo
The Howler Monkey Sanctuary
The Atlun Hu Mayan Ruins
Local exotic wine makers
Bacab Eco Nature Park with Pool
Quiet sandy beach and unique Garifuna village at Hopkins Beach
The Caye Caulker Ferry, where you can spend a day with the laid back locals, rent a sail boat, go diving or snorkeling and be home before dark relaxing on the deck.
I recommend going for a trip to the reef with Ras Creek if you like to chill and swim with the rays.

Burrell Boom is the sweetest little village on the Belize river and just 20 minutes from the international airport and central to every adventure or peaceful spot you might want to visit in Belize.
What makes this little spot so sweet? In no particular order, I’d say the people of Burrell Boom, the river, the wildlife, the song birds, the location, the fire flies, the frogs -- and of course the Howler Monkeys The people are sweet because they are kind and shy and wonderful storytellers — who love their baseball, horses and music. And, they are also famous for their wine making skills.
The river is sweet because when it is green it sparkles like an emerald and invites long lovely evening paddles. And when the river is flooding, it slips along in eddies and whirlpools a muddy rich brown color, and it is full of fish and lobster and Manatees too.
The wildlife is awesome . Burrell Boom is a photographer’s dream and a bird-watchers paradise. The people of Burrell Boom live in wonderful harmony with the monkeys and crocodiles. They are proud to protect and happy to share their local knowledge of this amazing jungle wildlife.The location of Burrell Boom is as sweet as the people and wildlife.
Boom is only 20 minutes from the international airport. And, you can travel from the front door of the Howler House to Caye Caulkers, by boat via Belize City, in 90 minutes — from the jungle to the reef, now that is pretty sweet.
I can help you to arrange all your adventures – to anywhere to do anything you might dream-up. And, you’ll find that Burrell Boom is wonderfully central to Mayan ruins and Temples, amazing caves, Hopkins beach, Crooked Tree Bird Sanctuary, the Belize Zoo, the Howler Monkey Sanctuary, Baclar Eco park with horses and bicycle trails, Cave Tubbing and Ziplinning, the most remarkable diving sites and river or ocean fishing.
All the things you can do without leaving the Howlerhouse deck:
Photography, bird-watch, wait for the crocodile(s) to surface and perhaps sun themselves on the bank, get to know the howler monkeys (they like Reggie music), sit still and a Blue Morpho butterfly with an 8-inch wingspan will eventually float by. Play the stock market on-line on high-speed Wi-Fi. Lie under a gentle fan, swing in the hammock and read a good book.
Write a poem, a song, a book or a blog. Watch the sun rise and the river float by, caste a line and catch a fish – yes, right from the deck when the river is flooding.
Make origami. Paint a picture. Star gaze while fire flies light up the sky. Sip on rich local organic coffee in the morning, and exotic local wines in the afternoon. Watch for manatees. Skype your family, your boss, your best friend and show them the howlers in the trees. Stay cool and be prepared to wake up early because all the songbirds and parrots believe it is their daily duty to serenade the rising sun.
All the things you can do if you decide to leave the deck: Paddle down the river, go fishing, ride a bicycle around the village, go to the local baseball games – join the locals on Friday evenings when people gather in the park after dark with music and drinks and snacks for sale. Go to the horse races on Sundays and holidays, Boom has the largest racetrack in the country, and we love our horses as much as our Reggie music. Have an ice-cold beer at Yellow Man’s local Pub along with a juicy burger or fried fish from Miss Caroline — while you are there, play a game of pool or dominoes with the villagers. Go horseback riding -– you could ride as far as the Howler retreat and learn more about these monkeys. Take a short drive to the Belize Zoo and visit the Jaguars, or join a tour to the Mayan Ruins. Hopkins Beach, just an hour down the road, has surf and white sand beaches rimmed with palm trees. Enjoy a delicious meal at the Black Orchid restaurant and then pass the evening in the Jungle Café listening to music and sipping local wines.
