Holiday Rental House
Welcome to The Howler Treehouse! This is a perfect ROMANTIC SPOT for two (but you are welcome to bring friends or family ). This sweet little one bedroom house sits high in the jungle canopy perched above the edge of the Belize River. With Howler monkey families in the trees, crocodiles in the pond, butterflies and songbirds in the air, and a brand new canoe in the river for your use, this is a unique piece of jungle paradise that offers you an amazing holiday destination. The house is new with high speed wireless internet and all new appliances. There are two bikes and a canoe. The Howler House is just a short 20 min drive from the international airport, and is central to so many of the adventures Belize has to offer.

This sweet little one bedroom house sits high in the jungle canopy perched above the edge of the Belize River. With Howler monkey families in the trees, crocodiles in the pond, butterflies and songbirds in the air, and a brand new canoe in the river for your use, this is a unique piece of jungle paradise that offers you an amazing holiday destination. The house is new with high speed wireless internet and all new appliances. There are two bikes and a canoe. The Howler House is just a short 20 min drive from the international airport, and is central to so many of the adventures Belize has to offer. In the village it is a 5 min bike ride or 15 min walk down a lovely village road along the river to the Black Orchid resort with SWIMMING POOL and live music at the Jungle Cafe on Friday nights. You are always a welcome guest at the Black Orchid, for a swim, or a great meal, or just lounge about in the Jungle Cafe that hangs over the river -- enjoying a local drink and meeting fellow travellers. It is also possible to arrange to have Miss Carol, a local eatery, to prepare food for you -- and even deliver with a call. As well as the main bedroom with new Queen bed, there is a double blow-up mattress, a single bed on the screened in deck. The house sits high above the river on 12 ' stilts -- which means we catch a sweet breeze and minimal bugs: mosquitoes do not like to fly above 10 feet. Along with the river breeze, there are five ceiling fans and a stand up portable fan to keep you extra cool. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom has a stand-up shower that looks out over the jungle. All your transportation needs can be arranged and designed especially for you. Andrew will pick you up and deliver you anywhere you need to go -- he is an amazing local full of knowledge. You can even get food or supplies delivered to the house. The house is brand spanking new with high speed wireless internet with Skype and Netflix enabled. It has a single bedroom with a majestic view over the river and a new queen size bed. The bathroom has a shower - no tub . The kitchen is fully equipped with a new stove, fridge and double sinks. The HOT water shower has been installed. This is the perfect vacation spot for : PHOTOGRAPHERS, BIRD WATCHERS, FISHERS, KAYAKERS, BICYCLISTS, WILD LIFE ENTHUSIAST, WRITERS, EXOTIC WINE ENTHUSIAST AND DAYDREAMERS, GOLFERS, DEEP SEA FISHERS, DIVERS, SNORKELERS, SAILORS, SPELUNKERS, MAYAN RUINS EXPLORERS, REGGIE LOVERS AND WANDERERS. Burrell Boom is a small village centrally located as a perfect stepping off spot for everything you might want to do while in Belize. In the village you can paddle the river, going fishing and bicycling, the wildlife is amazing - birdwatchers are in heaven here; the Howler Monkeys live in the trees above us. Star-gazing and sipping on local wines is magical. CLOSE BY you will find the amazing Belize Zoo, the Howler Monkey Sanctuary, Mayan ruins, Bacab eco-park with horses and hiking trails, local exotic wine makers, quiet sandy beach at Hopkins (an hours drive), 30 mins to the Cay Caulker Ferry, where you can spend a day with the laid back locals, rent a sail boat, go diving or snorkelling on the reef and be home at the Howler House before dark relaxing on the deck. Tony will deliver you to the water taxi and pick you up when you are ready. Close to home, there is a grocery store that sells local wines, rum and cold beer and a few groceries. And, the village pub a short walk away, serves ice cold beers, homemade juicy hamburgers and a delicious fried chicken or fish dinner for five bucks.. There is also a great Chinese Food restaurant in the village. And, people are soooo friendly here, if you want to, you'll make friends with the locals with ease. On Friday evenings people gather in the park to watch the teenagers play soccer and they have music and snacks and cold drinks for sale. And, there is a huge horse race track, with races on special Sundays and Holidays - people come from all over for the races -- it's exciting. The Black Orchid resort, just down the road, has live local music on Friday nights. All of your transportation needs can be taken care of at very reasonable rates! Just let me know where you want to go! If you want help with travel arrangements to Belize, just let me know.More

I have a great tour guide and transportation - Kenny and his wife Shana are a team and will arrange any tour - at any time - that you would like to take. They have been taking care of my guests for 3 years now - and you can see the reviews.
