Property description

Heron's Rest is a small, well-appointed apartment inside a walled, owner-occupied residence about 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. The lagoon shallows dance in the tradewind breezes. Our black soil gardens and mangrove borders support birdwatching and birdsong from dawn to dusk. Fireflies in the 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 (500-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: movies, 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.

This vacation home is best suited for a couple or two friends but can accommodate 3 with permission, for short stays. 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.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

This home was built on the narrowest part of the island, where lagoon and beach are only meters apart. Prevailing winds keep us comfortable and bug-free most of the time. The surrounding jungle, shining lagoon, crashing surf on the reef and endless beach offer peace and space in all directions while town is just a 5 minute ferry ride, 15 minute bike ride or 30 minute stroll down the beach.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I first fell in love with Belize as a visiting anthropology student over 30 years ago. I was drawn back again and again by the perfect combination of sun, sand and sea; by the positive Mayan energy; and by the friendliness and laidback lifestyle of the residents. Ambergris Caye became my permanent home in 2010.

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro, Belize:
Building a place that suited the Belizean weather and lifestyle, and celebrated the local materials and plants has been a dream come true. The private rental apartment on the first floor also serves as guest quarters for family and friends, and it is personally maintained.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
As onsite hostess I am almost always available for any questions - grocery stores, gas, where to eat, which tour to take, etc. And as a lifelong sailor and diver I am happy to share what I've learned so far, of the magical spots and amazing opportunities among the islands, in the water and on the mainland.
