Imagine yourself living in a comfortable & spacious home perched on a hilltop overlooking the Belize River. You'll love the privacy and serenity of our secluded and secure location and excellent views of the surrounding rain forest. Abundant wildlife such as birds, monkeys and other animals will provide an unending source of amusement, wonder, and photographic opportunities. From the sidewalk outside our house, watch howler monkeys cross a rope bridge (see https://youtu.be/EpMd3OM5rQw) Hand-feed bananas to wild kinkajous (cute, cat-sized, raccoon cousins) from a feeding platform next to our house see (https://youtu.be/vPnW2r1_t40). Crickets and soothing river sounds will lull you to sleep and myriad bird songs provide a wake-up call in the mornings.
