Welcome to our lovely home. The large bedroom with king sized bed comes with a hammock for you to relax in, as well as an ensuite bathroom for your privacy. We have a lot of open space for you to enjoy. Whether you are looking to have a nice conversation or enjoy a book on your own, our home will offer you both privacy and communal space. Included is a big breakfast freshly cooked for you at the time you desire!

The space
This is one of the most unique home-stays you will ever call home. With the many inviting rooms and spaces like the long deck looking over the street, three story large veranda overlooking the jungle canopy, a massive 500 sq ft master bedroom, and a lovely dining room, you will be surely enjoy the comforts of your relaxing vacation. The room is set up with 1 king size bed, but if you are 3 we can set up another bed in the same room upon request for an extra charge.

The Matus family invites you to their home. We are offering a large, freshly cooked breakfast for you in the morning. Breakfast includes a nice selection of local fruits, eggs (sunny side up, scrambled or omelet), ham, refried beans, vegetables, and fried jacks. Coffee or tea is available as well.

The home is located in a very safe neighborhood, however as added extra security you will have a key to the front gate and front doors.

We are a family with 2 grown children who study at university and one teenager-all are great appreciators of music and world interests so they enjoy a conversation as you pass through while also giving you the space you need to relax and enjoy your vacation. We are also very familiar with the area and can assist you with your planned activities and tours. For example, our neighbour Henry does a great canoe tour along the Macal river with swimming points along the way.

We are blessed to live right near the river and bridge in a quiet neighborhood and are only a few minutes walk across the bridge to the market and San Ignacio town. We are also near a bus line to take you west, south or north of Belize.

The bus lines run frequently especially on week days. No need to even cross the bridge, as you can simply hail the bus from the road side. Taxi's are plentiful and we can also occasionally offer an airport pick-up if we are available at the time you are coming in.

Enjoy a BBQ up on the top veranda, lay out in one of our many hammocks, play the piano, people watch from the deck or just read a book - it is all here for you.

We also offer basic Spanish lessons for whoever is interested.

Smoking is allowed in designated areas (balcony and roof top terrace).

Guest access
The home is in a safe neighborhood and we will have a key available for guests for both the outer gate and front door.

You are welcome to use the kitchen, BBQ up on the large veranda up top and share the common space.

Other things to note
There is a number of places to relax on your own or with the company of others. We have a BBQ on the third story veranda, books, music, games and internet/wi-fi on site.

We are happy to clean your linens and towels every 3 days upon request or when needed.
