This must be the easiest way I've ever seen to own waterfront property here on Ambergris Caye, Belize. If you thought you could never afford it think again!
This beautiful lot sits in a new subdivision just north of San Pedro Town. These waterfront lots all sit on the clear, shallow waters of the San Pedro Lagoon just 5 minutes away from the ocean and the reef but very protected.
Having a vacation home or retirement home here will give you the opportunity to have your boat right at your front door. If you want to build now you can do so using rain water cisterns for water and solor or wind for power. However if you wait a year or two all utilities will be available. So build now or wait. It's your choice.
The lot is priced at only $80,000 which for those of of you who know Ambergris Caye know this is a great deal. You can pay cash (the seller would probably prefer it) but if you can't afford the who amount right now you can put as little as 10% down and make low monthly payments.
Just about anyone should be able to afford this. If you've always wanted to own waterfront property on a Caribbean Island this is your chance. What do you think?....is this "the one"?

Percentage wise most of the people that contact me regarding real estate are women and many of them are looking to get a womans perspective on buying property and living here.
So, my wife came out with this great idea to shoot a video series that gives a womans perspective on Ambergris Caye. What does she like about living here? Why did she choose Belize? What are the pros and cons of living on an island in the Caribbean?
Over the course of this series Steph will answer all of these questions and many more. If you have any that you'd like to ask her feel free to email me and I'll have her tape her reply and upload it to YouTube.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy this series!

The furniture is in!! Check out the video to see the finished product.
Real estate options on Ambergris Caye have just been taken up a notch. Check out this 3 bedroom waterfront home in the hottest new subdivision called South Ambergris Caye Subdivision. Homes in this subdivision offer the finest in luxury and technology.
Here is a little more info about the development.....
When looking at how best to develop the land where the South Ambergris Caye Subdivision is now located, the developer and his team were inspired by conservationists and their efforts, such as: WWF (world wildlife fund) and were inspired to make this development a step above the norm. The developer assembled a team of environmental, hydraulic, civil, mechanical and architectural engineers, marine biologists, botanists, geologists and world-class architects, together with the departments of the environment, forestry and geology to come up with an innovative plan.
It was determined that this land, which was formerly stagnant and largely void of vegetation, could be transformed into an area to establish mangrove planting. Experts suggested and agreed that by opening up this area with a series of canals the entire ecosystem would improve because of increased water circulation.
In addition to providing better circulation, a team of engineers designed special seawalls called habitat walls which allow for the planting of new mangroves and form a cave like habitat for fish once installed throughout the subdivision’s miles of waterways. This will be one of the largest planting of new mangrove in the world. As seen by this Google earth time-lapse, the improvement in mangrove density is clearly visible. Once completed, the community will enjoy the sanctuary-like qualities of the mangroves.
Homeowners in the subdivision will be required to keep the mangrove trees along the designated sections of the canals and their restrictive convents will state that no removal of mangroves will be allowed within the subdivision.
In addition, the land developer and home builders are applying for not 1, but 3, different LEED certifications in the designs of subdivision, landscaping and house. All homes are being designed to conserve electricity and water. For example, homes are being built with LED lights, 12v inverter airconditioners, low flush toilets and showers to conserve precious resources.
In all areas of importance the development team of the South Ambergris Caye Subdivision has sought out qualified experts and together they are creating a world class neighborhood.
