BTB Gold Standard Private Heaven is located on Lark Caye, an island 6 miles off Placencia in the Caribbean Sea. Right in front of the house a breathtaking coral reef, perfect for snorkeling or taking the kayaks. On the backside a beautiful lagoon. The eco-lodge is powered with solar (+ backup generator), AC in both bedrooms, TV with Netflix, Wii console, hot water, well equipped kitchen, BBQ, 2 King Size beds, huge bathroom & shower, ocean deck, Wifi, USB-outlets, HQ Bluetooth speaker, hammocks.

Le logement
The 35 feet front side of the eco lodge offers a panorama view to the Caribbean Sea with a breathtaking coral reef just a few steps into the water. The coral reef is very special as it is located only in shallow water, absolutely perfect for snorkeling. Diving wouldn´t make any sense at this reef, however it is full of sea life with all kind of tropical fish, spotted eagle rays, permits, tarpon, jacks, giant crabs and lobsters. On the back side of the lodge you will find a totally different eco-system thanks to the lagoon. The lagoon is surrounded by mangroves and gives shelter to herons (including green herons), ospreys, pelicans and close to the lodge you will sometimes find hummingbirds and the very rare bright red vermillion flycatcher. The calm lagoon is perfect for kayaking, bird watching and with some luck you will be able to meet gentle manatees right next to your kayak.

Everything is set up as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible: the eco-lodge is powered by 12 huge solar panels and 24 deep cycle solar batteries.
Your fresh water for the bathroom and kitchen is collected rain-water, stored in 5 water tanks with a capacity of 660 gallons each. There is a 3-tank water treatment system with an irrigation field into the small garden. In this little oasis you will find banana trees and other tropical plants. Every drop of fresh water counts and I even use the condensation water from the air conditioners to grow tomatoes. Even if you are coming because of the nature and tranquility, most of us love to share our experiences via social media. Therefore I have set up a high speed internet system with a dish to dish communication (island to mainland). It´s a flatrate and your data usage is unlimited, very special on an island in the middle of nowhere and high speed. Even the upload of live videos works. In the living room you will find a smart TV with Netflix, YouTube and other streaming apps.

In addition I am providing a tablet with a communication app, where you can text, call or even video-chat with me. On the tablet you will also find a dashboard for your solar system to monitor how much energy is consumed compared to the collected solar energy. This is really fun and you will be surprised how little things - that don´t have any impact in your comfort - will safe up to 90% of power.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a toaster, blender, coffee maker, bar shaker, a huge fridge/ freezer combination, an electronic high quality gas stove and color changing LED lights. All rooms have ceiling fans, both bedrooms in addition ACs.

The bathroom provides a very comfortable and large open shower without any sticky bathroom curtains. You will be amazed how it feels to take a shower with pure rainwater. The toilet works like your toilet at home, there is no need to separate the toilet paper, you just flush it down thanks to the water treatment system. Both bedrooms provide high quality king size beds, ceiling fans and as mentioned AC.

Before your check in: a professional cleaning team prepares the lodge for you which takes a day. My place follows the Belize Gold Standard and Airbnb Covid-19 enhanced cleaning protocols. Sanitizing is a must.

If you need any assistance you can text Kenroy via the tablet communication app. His house is 400 feet away with mangroves in between and next to the boat dock. The house is positioned towards the North, your lodge to the East, you won´t see or hear each other. Privacy for you and Kenroy has the highest priority on the island. From the front side there is no way that boats can approach, it´s too shallow because of the amazing coral reef. Overall you have around 1 acre just for you but whenever you need assistance Kenroy be there for you. Kenroy is a top notch tour guide from Placencia Wildside Tours and with him you can decide depending on the weather and your budget if you want to do a small fishing tour or explore the Belize Barrier Reef and the Silk Cayes. His rates start at 100 USD for the whole group up to 500 USD if you want to do the breathtaking trip to the Silk Cayes. Tours are not included and you will have to pay cash (USD or Belize dollar). Your boat, your captain and tour guide always available for you if you are in the mood, it can´t be better. He will also help you to get fish and seafood and clean it for you.

Overall: if you love nature, snorkeling, privacy, seclusion, kayaking and adventure: this is the perfect place for your vacation and you will fall in love. Whatever problem you have I´ll try to solve it and there is nothing that I won´t do for you if it´s a reasonable concern.
BUT: if you are a spoiled brat, need room service, freak out if you find ants inside the lodge (we are talking about an island where all species share the same land), throw a temper tantrum because of sand flies during wind blowing from the west, if you get annoyed if fishermen on the ocean get close from time to time trying to feed their families or if you expect a room in the Trump tower with daily cleaning and maid services: then you will hate it. If you love nature, snorkeling and hide some kind of adventurer inside you, don´t think twice, this is the real thing.

Où se situe le logement

Placencia, Stann Creek District, Belize

You will be completely on your own on the one acre. It is not possible to walk to neighbors or talk to somebody, total seclusion. The only person who will be available for you - in case you need something - will be Kenroy, your personal top notch tour guide (tours are paid separately). He will be staying 400 feet away in his own house next to the boat dock. That way you are protected and at the same time enjoy total privacy and seclusion. And if you want to explore the Belize Barrier Reef or just go on a cheap fishing tour Kenroy will always be there for you. The only other friends out there are cute hermit crabs, pelicans, ospreys, colorful fish and the (healthy) coral reef. When you are on the ocean deck you may see the most beautiful daily visitors: a family of spotted eagle rays! With some luck you may watch manatees or even snorkel with them - don´t push it, they come if they are interested in you. Sometimes also dolphins get close. With some luck you may meet them when you are kayaking.

Pendant votre séjour

It´s the ultimate adventure to stay on an undeveloped island 6 miles off the coast, maybe you never experienced that in your whole life. But you will never feel lost, I´m close enough to help you in case of an emergency 24 hours the day. If you are coming with kids, it will be my pleasure to plan a funny treasure/ scavenger hunt between your house and my house. Absolutely safe, but with some funny aspects related to sustainable energy and our vulnerable environment. Main goal is to have fun, a bit of adventure and of course with safety as highest priority.
