About the Property

Single island, main house (2 bedrooms) and cabana. Internet/phone service.

Bird Island, just 20 minutes away from the village of Placencia, Belize, is a small island inside a coral-reef. It's protected beautiful waters is what makes it unique. Its total privacy is what makes it truly special.

The central theme of Bird Island is a self-catering Robinson Crusoe type of adventure, yet with all the comforts, where one could get to do their own thing in total privacy. We offer Bird Island at an exceptional price for an experience best suited for the self-sufficient and resourceful in nature; it is not a resort. Minimum stay is 3 days, maximum 5 days.

Price includes:
1. One of the best snorkeling and fishing areas in Belize. (See aerial photo)
2. A well stocked kitchen with basic condiments. Guests need to bring basic staples such as favorite meats, vegetables and drinks.
3. Transportation to and from island from Placencia is included.
4. Kayaks (2).
5. Local phone and WiFi. CD player and an excellent movie collection.
6. Barbecue, sundeck, lookout tower and many other such amenities.

The island has a new main house at one end and a separate cabana on the other. It is surrounded by extremely shallow crystal-clear waters; you can snorkel, swim, wade or take the kayaks right from the island and cruise the entire nearly mile-long atoll or nearby islands.

It is a perfect setting for either a romantic get-away for a couple, a family reunion or a group of friends. The island also has exceptional weather, always cool even when the mainland starts to become hot and humid by early April.

Want to get-away from it all, even for the shortest of time, with your love one or some friends, then this is the place. Want to go swimming or snorkeling in crystal clear water in a beautiful unspoiled reef, you will be surrounded by one.

Spending time at Bird Island, even for the shortest of time, you will feel like you have done something special.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Retired not from work, but from the maddening crowd. Came to Belize in 2010. Started Bird Island in 2013. Military Service: Vietnam Era. Then traveled throughout Central and South America for 2 years, always thought I would be back. Went to Cornell University for 5 years. Lived in Sun Valley, ID area for 7 years and then in Prescott, AZ for 23 years until 2010. My two main hobbies have been fly fishing and bird hunting with my beloved English Setters which I had the supreme honor of having for three generations encompassing 37 years.

Why the Owner Chose Belize:
A unique experience. Where else can you find the experience of staying in your own island, at such an affordable price.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
No need to go on special tours, you can snorkel or fish right out your door.
