MAY 2018 UPDATE:
Arregis Construction has been amazing to work with! From problem solving to finishing details, its all been a very positive experience. We broke ground late November last year and our crew worked thru rains, humid & hot seasons without batting an eye (we are currently finishing the punch list). We are also working thru licensing and government permitting and hopping to be opening the Oceanside Cabanas by September or October of this year- putting us right on schedule. Exciting times!
Details about the Oceanside Cabanas, (North and South cabanas as we call them): Each studio cabana is approx 600 Sq Feet, cathedral wood beam ceilings (close to 10 feet tall) Both floor and ceilings are made of local woods, hand-crafted in a traditional Belizean style. The glass folding style doors completely open the studio to the beach. The full kitchen includes a Brazilian Quartz counter overlooking the Caribbean ocean. Both cabanas will be set up with a King size bed, (the South cabana will be able to accommodate either a couple or 2 single friends, since the King size bed can be turned into 2 separate extra large twin beds). The beds will be overlooking the ocean, so you can wake up to the sun rising over the beach (off course!..). Each cabana has its own full bathroom with a marble counter top, a custom made vanity and the bathroom shower floor tile is made from Mexican river stones. The shower glass doors and walls are from Guatemala. The outdoor space is as amazing. There is a common covered wood deck, uniting both cabanas, overlooking the ocean on one side and the lagoon on the other (so we don't ever have to miss a sunset or a sunrise!) We are planning on being in Belize later this year to get the property ready for guests-Look for additional landscape pictures and additional details coming within the next few months- Well keep you posted....
JUNE 2017 UPDATE:
We have cleared and filled the lot and are in the drawing and planning stages of building the cabanas project.
We closed on purchasing our lot and couldn't be happier!....
MAY 2016 UPDATE: (We are under contract.....)
As we prepare to launch our new website, we received great news!
We found out that our offer on the beach lot for sale in Maya Beach-Plantation area (that we visited last April) has been accepted! We are anxiously waiting to hear back from the closing Agent in Belize telling us that both survey and title are clean and ready.
The Belize property is our latest project. We plan to build the beach cabanas by the Spring 2018 (keeping fingers crossed...). The property is east facing, sun rising over the Caribbean ocean and sun sets over the Mayan mountains, with unobstructed east and west views.
We have been traveling to Belize for the last 10 years and felt right at home with this beautiful small Caribbean country, that lies right below Mexico. The white powder sand, calm beaches and crystal clear water along the Placencia Peninsula, surrounded by palm trees, jungles, mangroves was enough to make us come back time....and time.... and again. The perfect 80 degree climate, friendly locals and proximity to Colorado (4 hour flight from Denver) makes Belize the perfect winter getaway for our family.
We will keep you posted....
