The pale pink villa consists of 4,128 sq. ft. including 60 ft. verandas on both levels, facing the sea Located on the upper level are two large bedrooms, the living room, bar, bath, large kitchen, and two dining areas, as well as a third dining area on the veranda. The beach level includes three bedrooms, large open area, bath with tub and shower, and a 60 ft. veranda on the waterfront. For smaller accomodations, click here for our Pelican's Nest Guest House.
The pool is the largest private pool in Belize, measuring 38 feet long and 18 feet wide, plus an 8 1/2 foot wide circular alcove, which holds the 300 year old bronze horse fountain from Versailles, France.
The master bedroom, the Casa Tortuga Room, on the upper level has a king size bed. The closet doors are mirrored and the room is furnished in antique dark green Captain's furniture handpainted with clipper ships. This bedroom has two sets of french doors which open onto the veranda overlooking the Caribbean.
The second upstairs bedroom, the Jungle Room, is large, 14 ft. by 24 ft. with a king canopy bed of large bamboo. At one end of the room is a mantelpiece under a large carved mirror, flanked by paper mache animal masks. The wicker furniture includes an oversized chaise upholstered in cream with jaguar print pillows. This room also has a game table with a roulette wheel underneath and a sea view.
The living room has a white sectional sofa and a marble coffee table. It has two sets of French double doors opening onto the veranda. The antique walnut bar seats three at the front, and has a back bar with curved glass cabinets and shelving, while the ceiling of the bar holds the crystal stemware and lighting.
The Dining table is oval glass with a brass base and Parsons high back chairs with covered legs. A large leafy chandelier with white shades on the candlelight bulbs light the dining area. Blue and lavender hydrangeas in an Imari container serve as a centerpiece.
The kitchen is equipped with all G.E. appliances including a microwave. All of the cabinets, doors and ceilings are mahogany. The stove hood and kitchen counters are tile.

The beach level has three additional bedrooms. The Maya Room opens directly onto the veranda and beach. The view of the turquoise Caribbean from the half-canopied bed is wonderful. This room is accented with Mayan artifacts and paintings of jaguars. There are more jaguars in Belize than in any other country in the world. They inhabit the rainforest on the mainland of Belize.
The second beach level bedroom is the Palm Room. This room has a queen canopy bed and wicker furniture. It is surrounded by coconut palms outside with a western view of the sunsets and a partial sea view. The artwork reflects Belizean architecture, landscapes, and Caribbean scenes by renowned local artists. Since the sea view in the Palm room is indirect, there is a color TV built in as in the upstairs living room.
The third bedroom is the Seabreeze Room which has a queen bed and a beautiful view of the sea. This bedroom opens onto an open living area with an eight foot long mahogany bench carved with monkeys and tropical fruit trees. There are also tables and chairs in the living area and on the veranda.
