The Etho-House: Off-Grid Experience
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."The Etho-House IS that difference! Slow down, unplug your devices, don't style your hair today, just be in the Rainforest! if you are looking for an affordable way to experience the Virgin Rainforest & natural beauty of Belize this is the place! A Basic Kitchen, Low-Voltage Solar Electricity, & Flushing Toilet ensure basic comfort while stepping off the beaten track!
This is a cabin with a spacious kitchen and a tiled spring fed shower house downstairs. Upstairs is a studio style sleeping accommodation with a Full size bed and four twin beds. There is also a flushing toilet with a hand sink, and a spacious deck upstairs.
The kitchen is equipped with a 4 burner propane stovetop and a 2 burner pancake griddle. There is also a huge sink with three seperate sprayers to make cleanup a breeze! A large array of stainless steel cookware is sure to meet your needs, as well as a variety of kitchen accessories like graters, sieves and even a tortilla press!
At the STAND Center everything is off grid and sustainable! Renewable solar and hydro electricity serves this permaculture farm and research Center. Your house has low voltage lighting and small reading lamp and rechargeable flashlight is also available for your use, while here. There is definitely no a/c so be prepared for the actual outside temperatures, generally a breezy 75-90 degrees F, though it can drop down into the upper fifties here in the mountains! We can also teach you about native flora & fauna, organic permaculture, primitive skills and natural living! This is definitely a one of a kind experience, not available anywhere else in Belize! We can set you up with local affordable tour guides and companies to visit the Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, waterfalls, rivers for tubing or kayaking and more, all within a few miles of our location! If stunning views of pristine Rainforest, natural sights like sinkholes, caves, and waterfalls, and waking up to the sound of parrots, toucans and howler monkeys sounds like your cup of tea, we've got what you are looking for! If on the other hand you want access to lots of night life like clubs and restaurants check out San Ignacio! And finally, we are not attempting to present ourselves as a fancy resort accommodation. We are a family-run not for profit business, and while every effort is made to ensure your safety and comfort while here, it is a simple but sufficient house to relax in after a day of touring, or to write that next novel!!!
