Description of the Ambergris Caye vacation home rental
This unique octagonal house sits atop a pedestal at tree top level right at the water’s edge on a quiet stretch of white sand beach 4 miles north of San Pedro; far from the tourist scene, but a short walk along the beach to wonderful restaurants, beach bars and a great little grocery store. The water shuttle will pick you up from a dock near the house and take you into town for shopping or a night out. This is the ultimate location for diving or snorkeling, or just relaxing on the veranda looking out at the crystal clear turquoise water.

Get up early and drink your coffee on the veranda as you watch the sunrise over the reef, and perhaps see an egret stand in the water watching for fish, or a spotted eagle ray swim lazily by. Take one of our kayaks out to explore the reef in front of the house. The kayaks are "sit-on-top" style. You can tie them to a buoy near the reef to snorkel and get back on board easily. We now have an ocean swim area off the end of the dock to protect swimmers from passing boats.

The Tree House is the ideal spot for a romantic getaway, or for two couples or a small family. You’ll be living in a house, not a hotel or condo, with all the comfort and privacy of home. The house is newly renovated. The fully equipped modern kitchen will inspire you to prepare fresh caught fish and tropical fruit as you enjoy the ocean view. Both bedrooms have queen size beds. The living room is a comfortable place to relax and look out at the ocean. It has a couch which folds out to a queen size bed. There is a 26 inch flat screen TV and DVD player, an iPod dock with speakers, and a land line. There is high speed Internet. There is weekly maid service (or more frequently upon request).
This unique eco-friendly house perched atop a 20 foot concrete pedestal was designed to withstand hurricanes and cause minimal impact on environmentally sensitive locations. Built of farm grown replenish able lumber, the octagonal design and floor to ceiling windows catch the ocean breezes so that our ceiling fans and air-conditioning are seldom needed. The wide veranda affords a spectacular view of the Great Barrier Reef. The vaulted ceilings and exposed beams create a sense of space. We are committed to providing a green environment. Our water supply comes from rain water stored in a cistern on the property. Linens and towels are laundered in biodegradable soap and line dried.
