Property description

Unobtrusively distinct from it’s neighbors, this Modern beach house in Plantation / Maya Beach harnesses nature and the landscape
and provides a stunning backdrop for a dream Beach side retreat. High ceilings, large light-filled spaces, polished concrete floors, Wooden windows,
white walls, sublime views and sea breezes are just some of the features of this gorgeous home.

This off-grid home harnesses nature to run itself. A mass of solar panels housed on the separate caretaker unit provide enough power to run the electrical workings of the house including
energy star fridge/freezer, dishwasher, 2 bedroom-only air conditioners, ceiling fans and washer and dryer. A solar hot water tank provides a bountiful supply of hot water and 5 rain barrels store rain water collected
from the Round, Quancet style roof. An additional wind turbine supplies extra power if needed, harnessing the everyday cool beach side breeze.

The experience of this home begins the minute you arrive and step into the private front inner courtyard. Glass front doors open up and guide you into the main living space.
A fully equipped kitchen contains a vast concrete island, industrial gas stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, orange juice squeezer, stainless steel fridge/freezer with ice-maker and separate pantry.

A large and bright dining and living area with built-in sofas face the exquisite ocean front setting. 3 garage-style windows with additional screens open up to a stunning hardwood deck and lap
pool running the entire length of the house. The style of living in this house is easy and mellow as the outdoors and indoors become one with each other.
The house sits on a Beautiful white beach with clear blue water and invites you to take a dip or go for an ocean kayak. After time in the water, take a freshwater outdoor beach shower and relax under the pool pallapa or one of the beach lounges.

The main floor contains 1 bedroom with King Size bed, private courtyard and outdoor shower plus a guest bathroom for the main house use. Heading upstairs you find a large Studio or sleeping area with 2 glass garage doors and a set of French doors
which open up to a wraparound covered balcony. Hammocks and benches await as you doze off or keep a watch out for early morning Dolphins, Manatees or Pelicans diving for fish.

The main bedroom also has the same incredible view and a large king size dreamy bed to retire to at night. Use the AC or ceiling fan for comfortable cool sleeping or open the garage doors and listen to the waves. This room has a large wall of cabinets plus open shelves for storage. The bathroom on this floor is quite unique with an inner 2 piece and a private outdoor shower with a breathtaking framed view of the Maya Mountains and Lagoon.

ADDITIONAL
Free wifi, Sonos Music System, BBQ, filtered water for drinking, kayak and alarm system and safe in ground floor bedroom cabinet.
A golf cart is available at the house for a rental. If you are interested in renting the golf cart, please ask the manager for a daily or a weekly rate.

SUITABILITY
Balcony and stair railings are not child proof and therefore not suitable for unattended small children.

CARETAKER AND MAINTENANCE
The caretaker of Shebeen lives permanently on sight in a private separate apartment building and will look after guests basic needs. He takes care of the property, maintains the pool as well as the landscaping and will provide optional services like housekeeping, provisions and tour organization for an additional fee.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Carolyn and I have been to traveling to Placencia, Belize for over 20 years and have a deep connection with the people and the village. In 1997, we were married at the Dockside Bar surrounded by locals, friends and family. We've spent many incredible winter vacations on the peninsula. It has always been our dream to one day build a fabulous, modern beach home, and one that had as little impact on the environment as possible. Over the last three years we have researched, designed and incorporated solar and wind power to run our home, with the hopes of encouraging and promoting clean re-usable power as an alternative. Our home combines comfort and easy beach side living with a feeling of environmental awareness. Our hopes are that our guests will appreciate this concept the way we have envisioned.

Why Plantation, Belize:
Beautiful views of the ocean and the Maya Mountains
