Why Invest in a Vacation Home on These Caribbean Islands

by Khaila Gentle

Dreaming of owning a vacation home in the Caribbean? You’re not alone. The good news is that buying – or building – your dream vacation property might not be as farfetched an idea as you may think. Travel publication Traveling Lifestyle recently shared a list of 8 Caribbean destinations where owning a vacation home is most affordable. Among them? Belize’s northern islands. Both Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker offer scenic landscapes, offshore adventures, and a wide array of affordable vacation homes for purchase.

Own Your Dream Vacation Home in the Caribbean Nation of Belize

Longing to live on the beach? Belize’s two northern islands are the perfect destinations for seafront living. This small nation has one foot in the Caribbean and the other in Central America, offering the best of both worlds to those who get to call it home. Voted one of the best nature destinations in the world by TripAdvisor users, Ambergris Caye has been enticing travelers for ages now. Meanwhile, the island of Caye Caulker, especially its northern half, is continuously growing while maintaining its unmistakable tranquility.

One of the best ways to secure that sought-after holiday home is by working with a local realtor. In Belize, Vista Real Estate is a full-service agency offering a wide range of listings across the country.

Belize’s most sought-after tourist destination is home to shimmering blue waters, a buzzing social scene, and world-class restaurants and accommodations. Venture further north on the island, though, and you will encounter another side of Ambergris Caye – one that is tranquil and paradisical. It’s here that one stunning vacation home property, nestled against the Caribbean Sea, sits awaiting the right buyer.

The Windmill House on north Ambergris Caye – listed by Vista Real Estate – is as luxurious as beachfront vacation homes could get.  Fully furnished and outfitted with a 310 ft Dock plus 357 feet of beachfront, this gated property sits on beautifully landscaped grounds.

Designed in the U.S., this Ambergris Caye home was built to withstand hurricanes. Boasting 7,500 sq. ft. spread over two floors, it comes complete with an open Living Room and Kitchen, screened sunroom, and a total of 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a garage.

Ambergris Caye’s much smaller cousin is just as alluring a destination.
