Discover the tranquility of your own Caribbean villa with its panoramic view of the sea. Relax in the privacy of your own swimming pool. Stretch out in a hammock and dream to the rustling sound of the palm trees swaying above in the gentle breezes. Measure time…by sunrise and sunset.
Because of the beautiful and peaceful location of El Castillo de Arena, its thoughtful and handsome design and décor, and its overall commitment to excellence and subdued elegance, the “Sandcastle” is regarded as one of Belize’s finest 2-bedroom oceanfront villas. This private home is located 5 miles north of San Pedro town in the sought-after Mata Grande area on beautiful Ambergris Caye, Belize, .
By day, El Castillo de Arena is drenched in sunshine and the view from your villa and rooftop patio is of turquoise sea and the second largest barrier reef in the world. Take a quiet stroll down the beach, fish or snorkel off your own private pier or take a refreshing dip in your own pool on your 3rd floor patio after sunbathing.
At dusk as the sun sets and the lights slowly fade, the villa undergoes a magical transformation. Relax on the rooftop and watch some of the most beautiful flaming sunsets you will ever see. Further into the evening, have a romantic dinner while gazing at the stars that seem impossibly bright and close in the clear night sky or watch the passing cruise ships on the horizon.
The unique design of this private home features 3 separate units with 3 fully equipped kitchens and air conditioned living and dining areas for ultimate privacy for your multi-family vacation. During the winter months, the owners reside on the second floor and can offer a wealth of information during your stay. They look forward to being your hosts.
