North of the city, in the tranquil part of the Island, this cottage on 'Turtle Beach' is a wonderful place for your dream vacation. The Barrier Reef that shields the island is just off shore and provides calm waters for you to relax beside or to enjoy the many colorful species of fish just below the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. The water is very shallow and perfect for swimming in. Sit on the edge of our pier and soak up the calm beauty. This unit is one of 2 onsite Cottages at Turtle Beach that share the property. This executive 1-bedroom Cottage, has its own wrap around porch perfect for lazing around and enjoying a morning coffee or a late afternoon nap (the unit can accommodate up to 4 people). Or you may choose to kick it up a notch and explore all that beautiful Belize has to offer; including, but not limited to, snorkeling, diving the 'Blue Hole', fishing, exploring the many Maya Ruins, cave tubing, or zip lining through the jungle to name a few. We can help you arrange all tours in advance. Please let us know and we would be happy to help. The cottage comes complete with 2 air conditioners (bedroom and living-room), 3 ceiling fans, queen bed with fresh linen, dresser, closet with hangers, security safe (large enough for iPads, 15 inch laptop computers etc. ), modern style granite kitchen complete with stainless steel fridge and stove and drinking water cooler, dishes, utensils, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, living room with 40 inch flat screen TV, DVD player, sofa, (sofa bed will be supplied if there are additional guests), table, chairs and plenty of books to read. Wi-Fi rechargeable card is available (nominal fee for data used). There is a modern indoor bathroom complete with sink, toilet, shower and hot and cold running water from our fresh water well. Also, the outside porch has plenty of seating for relaxation. Things to know about where you are: The distance from San Pedro Town to the cottages is 8 miles North a short golf cart ride, or a short boat ride by water taxi. Most guests prefer a golf cart rental which we can arrange for you in advance. It makes exploring the island that more adventurous. If you would like one arranged for you, just ask. Things to bring from home: Swim trunks, flip fops, snorkel gear, suntan lotion, mosquito repellant and a care free relaxed attitude! Also for those avid fisherman, this is a great spot for fly fishing for Bonefish (Albula vulpes), Tarpon, and Permit fish (Trachinotus falcatus) right off the pier, so bring your gear. Things you may wish to purchase in San Pedro: There are restaurants in near-by resorts. One notable mention would be John's Escape on the way to town. They offer take-out Pizzas and other great food and drinks. We recommend that you bring or purchase groceries for at least 1 day after you arrive. The fresh fruit here is excellent and we highly recommend the Mango, Papaya, and Dragon Fruit. Note that you do not need to buy drinking water since we provide you with a 5 gallon jug of water which can be refilled for a small fee and there is filtered fresh well water available on site for showers and washing. Please note that fresh fish and lobster can be bought off our pier from the local fisherman (ask the caretaker if you wish to purchase some). Notes about the on-site caretaker: We have an on-site caretaker staying in another smaller cottage at the back of the property. He is your contact to help you with your questions and help you have a great stay with us!
