Private jungle reserve could be yours…or mine…

Join me on a little excursion…deeper South…Belize

The heart of the once Mayan empire

where turquoise waters lap up to the jungle’s edge...

Where relaxation is fairly effortless

like maybe a big toe in the sand to move the slowing hammock

kan Heading toward what is reminiscent

of Mayan huts

Only a small spit of sand separates the cool pool

from the warm Caribbean waters

ahhh

We can each have an individual round cabana

thatched in Palm.

With windows picturesquely crisscrossed with local branches

to prevent neon-colored tropical birds

so bright they look gaudy

from stopping in

Trees…in their entirety…make chairs, railings, lamps.

The walls are colored by rubbing natural dyes into them with cloths

Kanantik reef

This resort is conveniently for sale…and could be yours for the asking.

Well… 8 million clams…

and the asking.

those thatched roofs are amazing...thanks for the exotic armchair trip...

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Hee pamela...probably "lost" in the same place mine is!

And, Farmhouse, counting over 8 mill clams might take a tad bit more time then you thought...maybe pour yourself a lemonade and find a comfortable seat...

Farmgirl Paints said...

Now if I only had 8 million clams... I would be so IN!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

...Maybe if 8 million of us bought in...and did a timeshare...reasonable then??

Deborah said...

Heck ya I'm in! I've got 38 cents in my pocket. I'll just sleep on the hammock. **blows kisses** Deb

Beyond my means, girl! Best I could afford was a week in a rented house (with plenty of amenities and good company)in Placencia. Got a good look at a wonderful little town...the locals were GREAT!!! Took us on tours through the jungle and on a float down a river...serene, baby, serene!!!
We'll be looking forward to your interview on Blog Interviewer, Linda...

I can see myself and hubby there right now. To get to Belize from Barbados I have to go via Miami now isn't that ridculous? I am still going to find out the cost though.

Ivy Lane said...

Oh Yeah.. IN LIKE FLYNN!!! Happy Weekend!

Karen Deborah said...

don't I wish? How much for a week?

Karen Deborah said...

Hey I like your idea of getting together 8 million of us, so we could all have a little bit of this place and I'm just needing a lounge by the water, or that hammock.

vicki archer said...

You really are a temptress....xv

for the love of a house said...

Lovely, but I'm afraid I will have to pass... too many lizards!! :)

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

You know I am! I went to Belize a million years ago and absolutely loved it. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Barbara said...

Oh yeah! It's calling me. WE need to get on island time. Love it.
We're going in August.

red ticking said...

Melissa said...

I made $800 selling junk on Craigslist and a yard sale last month. I was going to put it toward landscaping, but maybe I'll get this place instead. Now if only I could figure out how to get the rest of the $7 million and change...

Maria Killam said...

So beautiful, I really want to be there right now, I need a vacation!!

Linda Lou said...

I am IN...but I think I would rather purchase a resort in Tahiti or maybe Bali...know any for sale??

Eloise said...

Well, I'll come visit you after you buy that place! It looks lovely!

We went to Belize with a group from my husband's company several years ago. We took an outing to a "jungle spa" where we were treated to mud massages. The only problem was the lady massaged every inch of my body in a largely open air hut (where I could hear people passing by), then she handed me a tiny towel (think hand towel size) to "cover up" so she could walk me through the jungle to a room where she washed off the mud. I was mortified that we were going to pass someone from my husband's company on the way (and we may have - I stared at the ground the whole time). It was definitely not relaxing! The rest of our stay in Belize was lovely, however!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Oh Eloise....I am cringing for you!

Stephanie said...

yep...let me just run down to the corner drug store to buy my lottery ticket please.

Splendid Willow said...

I am not only in - I will carry ALL bags if necessary - I just need a little glimpse of this exotic haven!

Happy weekend dear!
