This charming newly built 40 foot x 20 foot house sits on an good sized lot measuring just over a third of an acre in the sought after Caribbean Way neighborhood at the north end of the Placencia Peninsula. The size of this lot adds potential for a swimming pool and/or further structures.
The house is constructed from beautiful Belizean hardwood, which continues throughout the interior in the form of stunning floorboards, surfaces and doors. The main part of the house is a large open plan gourmet kitchen featuring a nine foot mahogany island with a prep sink and all new GE Appliances including a dishwasher and microwave oven. In the kitchen area you will find beautiful Italian tile backsplash, floating shelves with lighting, pull-out cupboard shelves and a nice sized pantry. The island is shared with the living room and will seat up to 10 people, a great space for entertaining!
Separating the living room from the master bedroom is a beautifully carved sliding barn door made of Santa Maria wood. Santa Maria is a native hardwood and is also found throughout the house on its floors and siding.
The home has one en-suite master bedroom with a very large walk-in closet. The walk-in closet features built in shelving and rods for hanging. The closet offers a small window for ventilation. The bathroom features a shower and a large double-slipper bathtub. Downstairs is partially finished with the possibility to add another bedroom and bathroom as well as extra storage.
Another great feature of this home is the rain catchment system and large water tank; saving money on water bills.
Great views are one of the many features of this home. There are views of both the sea and the sunsets over the Maya Mountains. Access to the beach is only 200 feet away.
All this can be yours for just US$270,000

Life in Caribbean Way
Caribbean Way is on the northernmost end of the Peninsula, part of the affluent Plantation neighborhood. Building a home here offers you the opportunity to take advantage of both sea and lagoon views and enjoy the serenity of this largely undeveloped section of the peninsula.
To the south of the Caribbean Way we journey down the peninsula first to Maya Beach. This relaxed section of the peninsula is favoured by expats and features some of the best restaurants in the area. 10 minutes drive from Caribbean Way we reach Maya Beach Bistro, a hot spot for gastronomic delights, famous for the best breakfast in Placencia, Tapas Happy Hour every afternoon and romantic beachfront dinners.
Maya Beach is also well known for having the only bowling alley in Belize! Also just 10 minutes away from Plantation Estate, head down to Jaguar Lanes for fun nights of bowling, wings and Belikin beers, the national beer of Belize. Join the locals for weekly poker nights, sign up for the bowling league or just enjoy their big screen TVs which always have the latest game playing.
Further south, a leisurely 25 minutes drive from the Caribbean Way, you will find yourself in the heart of the action, Placencia Village. A quaint village with all the excitement of one of Belize’s major tourist destinations. Enjoy the famous Sidewalk, a beachside promenade lined with bars and restaurants offering. Here you will find Placencia institution, Barefoot Beach Bar where you can sit on the beach and sip on the best (and strongest!) margaritas and stuff yourself with their famous Lobster Grilled Cheese. Placencia Village is also where you’ll depart from to go on any one of the many exciting tours on offer from some of the most knowledgeable tour guides in the country. Some of the best include taking an exciting boat ride up Monkey River into the heart of howler monkey territory, heading into the mangroves to go manatee watching, or taking a guided food tour around the village to taste local delicacies and if you’re up for it, braving a rum sampling session.
Let’s now take a journey off the peninsula! Heading up north we leave the peninsula and head inland. Only 20 minutes away we reach the famous Cockscomb Basin Forest Reserve. Nearly 100,000 acres of protected forest on the slopes of the Maya Mountains is yours to explore. This is the land of the elusive jaguar so keep your eyes peeled. The expertise of the local guides will help you spot his tracks and if you’re lucky, you may even spot him among the tropical rainforest. Here you can also take the opportunity to interact with Mayan community where they’ll guide you through traditional chocolate making techniques; you’ll even get the opportunity to make and taste your own! Finish the day with a hearty Mayan meal before heading back to the Peninsula.
