This desirable Caribbean Seafront property has served as a four bedroom, five bath single family residence and more recently as a boutique hotel, restaurant and bar in the upscale Southern Foreshore neighborhood of Dangriga Town, the “Culture Capital” of Belize. It is conveniently located two blocks from the town’s main commercial street and easy walking distance from banks, shops and markets. The popular seafront Alejo Beni Park is immediately north of the property and the Post Office and a Police Precinct is situated at the northwest corner of the that Park.
The building includes a large rooftop veranda overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea and is accessed by an outdoor stairway. It can serve as an outdoor lounge and eating area, a game area, or a pleasant family gathering spot. The second floor consists of three bedrooms and three bathrooms—two being ensuite baths—and are adjacent to the rooftop veranda. The first floor includes another bedroom and ensuite bath along with the kitchen and living area that can be rearranged to serve as restaurant and bar or family space. Two additional baths serve the restaurant/living area.
Dangriga is the largest town in Southern Belize with a population of approximately 10,000 persons. It is the birthplace of Punta Rock and related music and the site of regular Garifuna drumming and dancing in bars and other public houses. The North Stann Creek River runs through town and is the venue for fisherpersons and tour guides who conduct fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving tours of offshore waters and the many small islands including popular Tobacco Caye and South Water Caye.
Dangriga is centrally located at the beginning of the scenic Hummingbird Highway and near its junction with the Southern Highway. The national capitol of Belmopan is 50 miles northwest, the Placencia Peninsula 50 miles south, and many of Belize’s scenic mainland attractions are within easy driving distance. Surely the new owners of this unique property will play a role in the ongoing development of the Dangriga area as another center of Belize’s rapidly growing tourism industry.
