As a filmmaker, David has traveled extensively producing and distributing movies. His happiest place though is writing songs in the breeze on this deck, overlooking the mountains, hearing the wind in the cohunes and spotting toucans in the mango trees. Shanita loves Central America life - even more than she expected. The kids have made the best friends and adapted easily; they're enjoying sports, dance classes and church plays.
Shanita purchased this House in 2015
Why Shanita chose Cayo
Located in the Caribbean, the small coastal country of Belize is just a few hours flight from major US cities; it’s main language is English; it has a stable banking system, and it abides by English law. Belize is perhaps one of the last frontiers of truly free living. Heaven Valley is 90 acres of fertile farmland and gorgeous views in the foothills of the Mayan mountains next to Spanish Lookout, in Cayo, 2 hrs. from the Belize City airport. This chunk of heaven has rolling hills with tropical fruit trees and pines. It’s in the Billy White area just 2.5 miles from the popular Mennonite community Spanish Lookout which is the center for local produce, fresh meat, fresh baked goods, and modern-day conveniences. Quaint, safe Spanish Lookout is 20 minutes from San Ignacio – a favorite of expats and tourists - which also has a hospital. The property is fenced completely; some is cleared for cattle, some for tree & farming and year-round gardening. The rest of the 100 acres is lush tropical vegetation. Heaven Valley has a pond and a freshwater creek running throughout. The property is accessible directly from the main road but maintains privacy and spaciousness. Brand new beautiful Swiss chalet with cathedral hardwood ceiling, hardwood floors and a homey log cabin style. Four spacious bedrooms, two baths with large river rock showers and natural tree-based fixtures. Approximately 2000 with a huge 600 square foot wrap-around deck with gorgeous views of papaya and coconut trees. Wake up to the charming white Brahma cattle grazing, monkeys and the tropical breeze. Deluxe appliances including fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave. Various kinds of hardwood are included, and detail you would see only from a master craftsman, including all hand-made cabinets.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy 90 serene acres with a jungle creek. Watch for Iguanas; toucans; monkeys; eel and crocs in the pond. Situated in Cayo district in between Spanish Lookout and San Ignacio, the home is a short 12 minute drive from the peaceful Mennonite Farming Community of Spanish Lookout which has all dining and shopping amenities.

We loved our time here!!! If you want to experience Belize stay here!!!
We had an amazing time with Shanita and her family. They were extremely welcoming and the house was perfect for our large family. We had nine of us sleeping comfortably. The house was set on a hill on the edge of the jungle. Our kids played with their animals, picked coconuts and went on a hike through the jungle. I can't recommend this place enough. If you want to stay off the "beaten path" and enjoy your time in Belize, stay with Shanita and her sweet family!!!
Beautiful Belize on the Mainland
Shanita and her family were very friendly and inviting. Their place is beautifully situated on about 90 acres of land with wonderful views of a river, fields, trees, etc. We enjoyed relaxing on the wrap around porch taking in the scenery. Renting a car at the airport allowed us to explore the surrounding area. Very centralized location to easily explore some of Belize's mainland attractions/excursions. I highly recommend this property and the hosts! Would defiantly come back.

Peaceful and quiet place to stay
We stayed here in February and really enjoyed the home. It's close to San Ignacio (ten mile drive) but far away from the noise and traffic. It's a very short drive to the grocery store in Spanish Lookout. One of the bedrooms has air conditioning, but we didn't really need it. The countryside around the home is very pretty. The owner and her family were very helpful. Highly recommend this property for a stay in the Cayo area.
Friendly people (and animals), beautiful house
Our family of five (parents with 21, 17 and 14 year olds) enjoyed our stay at this property. We loved feeding mangoes to the cows, and my son "moo-ed" at the bull who responded. The owners were present and accommodating- they even sent us off with fresh banana muffins when we left.
I will say that if you come visit in July, you need to be aware that there is no air conditioning, and it gets pretty warm. (There are fans, but if every bedroom had a stand fan to go with the ceiling fan that would be even better.) We mostly stayed outside on the gorgeous huge porch until after darkness fell and it got cooler inside, when we were home.
We visited Xunantunich and Calico Jack's Village ziplining and the Belize Zoo while staying here, and everything was within an hour's drive or so. The ice cream (and air conditioning) at Western Dairy in Spanish Lookout are not to be missed.
We had a great time and would definitely stay here again!
Our Stay in Belize
We traveled to Belize for a nephews wedding and wanted a house that would accomodate six of our family. I found this place online and I'm so glad we did!! It was perfect for us, a very quiet setting with pastures and cattle grazing below the house. The wraparound deck/porch was a lovely place to relax and view the beauties of nature undisturbed by anything.
We had the address in our GPS and it took us right to the correct place but since we could not see the house from the road, we were not sure where to enter from the road. The owners are very accommodating and we could contact them anytime for help with anything. We simply called them and they told us where the driveway off the road was.They were very gracious, if we needed anything at all, we felt very free to contact them.
We loved the location of the house also. It was behind the Billy White Village which is a picture of the life and culture of Belize. The locals are very friendly, they gave us smiles and waves as we drove by. The road past the house and village are gravel, but it is only 10 minutes or so to the blacktop road. There are many stores and places to eat in Spanish Lookout, a very lovely community there. We ate at Golden Corral, (not the chain as in US), and Western Dairies. The food and service was very good.
The interior of the house is very nice also. It is light and cheery due to the large patio windows and high ceiling in the living area. We enjoyed the ample room with the comfortable sofas n chair for relaxing and being together. We slept very well, the beds were comfortable. If we have occasion to go to Belize in the future, we would choose to stay here again.

Pine Ridge bumpy drive but the ice cream sold at 7 miles helps break it up (not open Sundays) St. Herman's Cave (Belmopan) we all loved this eery and cool experience Blue Hole National Park (Belmopan) so perfect for a chilly dip￼ San Ignacio Market (San Ignacio) I was amazed at the variety of items I saw. we love the NEW FRENCH BAKERY across the street. and THE ICE CREAM SHOPPE over on Burns Ave next to Tia Maria.
