Just five minutes south of the airport, along the beachfront path, you will find this lovely, unique, three-level waterfront property that would make an excellent full-time residence while offering income rental potential too!
The South area of Caye Caulker, past the airport, has become very desirable for both homeowners and renters as it’s only ten minutes from the main village but a peaceful beauty spot with lots of natural beauty.
There are a few more homes in this area but it stays quiet all day and night. Properties South of the airport utilize solar and rain catchment. This house has six batteries and solar panels to keep both residential floors running sufficiently along with two large rainwater catchment vats. The foundation of this property is cement with cement posts and beams on the ground floor, but both second and third floor has a wooden framing and hardwood sidings. The ground floor houses the bodega and a room that can be turned into a caretakers studio apartment with a little work and to the side is a drive-up garage, big enough for a golf cart.
Outside stairs lead you to the second and third floor each with their own private entrance. The second floor is set up with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a larger room which currently has three double beds. This space can be converted into a living, dining, kitchen or left as is for large groups. There are plenty screened glass sash windows on this floor, to let in the light and breeze so you will have no problem keeping cool.
From the bedrooms you will enter the private, covered, screened veranda, allowing for extra indoor/outdoor living space.
While enjoying coffee, lunch or an evening cocktail, do not be surprised to see dolphins at play in the distance. In the morning you will be woken up to birds singing as the sun rises over the sea (an awesome sight you will never get enough of) and at night lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean waves and the fresh sea air – it truly is island living at its best!!
Heading up to the third floor from the outside side deck, you enter into an open plan ‘U’ shaped living/kitchen/dining/bedroom area. The kitchen is small and modestly equipped and leads you to the dining area with six seating dining table. Two glass sliding patio doors face the Eastern side of this floor and allow a glorious clear picture of the beautiful views ahead.
So whether enjoying a formal dinner with friends in the dining space or relaxing on the bamboo sofa set in the living area the picturesque views will keep you in awe.
Two double beds occupy the South part of this U Shape living space. The current owners enjoy this open plan feel but a wall can easily be put in place, turning into a one-bedroom for privacy. The windows on this floor are wooden shutter windows, also fully screened. The bathroom is nicely tiled, giving a clean, fresh feel and has a nice size shower cubicle, toilet and washbasin.
Next to the bathroom is a large owners closet allowing lots of space for storage too. Another large veranda facing the East completes this floor again offering that million-dollar view of the azure sea for miles and Belize’s beautiful barrier reef in the distance. From this veranda, steps lead up to a rooftop crows nest where you will enjoy more spectacular, panoramic views of the island and excellent spot to stargaze at night. You will catch sunset up here and really feel like you are in another world, away from it all as you enjoy the ambiance of your beautiful surroundings.
