Heron's Rest is a small, well-appointed apartment inside a walled, owner-occupied residence 1 1/2 miles north of San Pedro center. Some of the most beautiful views of la Isla Bonita can be seen from this lovely coastal location. And best of all, you are the only guest!
Heron's Rest was built by the owner to showcase the lagoon shallows and trade wind breezes. Our flower gardens and mangrove borders support endless birdwatching and birdsong - hummingbirds, herons and egrets oh my. Fireflies in the private woodlands follow spectacular lagoon sunsets.
Your accommodations offer every comfort and convenience, with a Pillow-top Queen bed in the bedroom and a Double Sofa-bed in the living room. The galley kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, 2 burner stove, microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, china, cutlery, pots and pans and essential staples. There is a flatscreen TV in the living area, the dining table serves 4, and garden patio is lovingly landscaped with local fruits, flowers and vegetables. The property is fenced, with secure parking for rental vehicles.
Imported luxuries (400-count linens and towels, technology and appliances) are combined with beautiful local hardwoods, textiles and crafts. Everything you could want for total relaxation is assembled for you: books, maps and guides, A/C, games, beach towels, hammocks, bicycles and kayaks ... if I've forgotten anything just ask.
There are a dozen bars and restaurants within walking distance ranging from BBQ to fine dining; our guests can enjoy sunning, swimming and snorkeling at the Ak'bol Yoga Eco-Resort pool, beach and pier across the street, which also has daily yoga classes and some of the best local food on the island. Sailboat and paddle-board rentals are steps away and pick-ups for fishing, diving, and adventure trips, as well as the coastal ferry to town are across the street. Owner offers customized massage, reiki and private yoga classes onsite.
This vacation home is best suited for a couple or two friends but can accommodate 3 with permission, for short stays. Well mannered dogs are welcome with written permission. I look forward to introducing you to the many joys and activities of Ambergris Caye, and to arranging sports, cultural and leisure activities suited to your particular taste.
