Thank you for your interest in our home in Consejo Shores, Corozal District, Belize. I am happy to provide photos and additional information about the property.
We lived in the house for almost eight years and thoroughly enjoyed the house, surrounding area, and Belize. The lot sits about 400 feet off of the coast line. The advantages of being close to but not on the water includes a nice breeze without the salt laden wind that inhibits plant growth. The orientation of the house is such that it is in the path of the prevailing wind and has a nice cooling breeze through the patio and great room and the master bedroom. We remodeled the kitchen which is now quite large and all of its cabinetry was custom designed and hand made of river mahogany. The house is wired for telephone and satellite service. Electricity is provided by Belize Electricity Limited. Domestic water is provided by two sources; there is a 30,000 gallon underground cistern, as well as being connected to the water supply provided by Consejo Shores, Ltd. It is in Consejo Shores, in northern Belize, which is quiet residential community of predominately expatriates from the U.S., Canada, western Europe. Consejo Shores has five dedicated parks facing the Caribbean and the Bay of Chetumal. Water sports and fishing are very popular. There is an executive golf course in Consejo Shores. Sited in the center of a one acre parcel of land, our home is surrounded by old trees and a wonderful variety of tropical fruit trees. The back of the property faces a dedicated green belt and neither of the adjacent lots on either side is occupied. There is a fully enclosed garage with cabinetry and work space on three walls. Consejo Shores is adjacent to the village of Consejo.The village and surrounding area has a number of very nice restaurants and tourist resorts near by. Consejo Shores is about seven miles from Corozal Town, a population center of about ten thousand with markets, restaurants, doctors and dentists, and other shopping and services. It is about fifteen miles from the Mexican border and the city of Chetumal, Mexico. Chetumal is a city of 400,000 with all the facilities of a large urban center. Living in the area is reasonably priced. For example, we paid our maid and our gardener each the equivalent of US$25.00 per day. The annual property taxes on the land and house are under US$100.00.
