Avalon Partners has listed several properties located on a secluded peninsula in Belize at Cocoplum Residential Resort, a neighbor to Coppola's Turtle Inn Resort.
The largest property is an oceanfront three-bedroom villa with three master suites around a central court decorated with potted palms, a full sized swimming pool, and patio leading to the beach and ocean, with the property being located only 130 feet from the water. The owner has the option to put it in a rental pool to earn recurrent income or retain it exclusively for family use.
The ground floor of the villa includes a kitchen, dining, and living area with full sized appliances including dishwasher and washer/dryer. The open plan living area enjoys wall-to-wall windows and French doors that open onto the patio, pool, and two additional bedroom units. There are deep soaking tubs made of beautiful local mosaic tiles and separate outdoor showers. The expansive bedrooms offer enough space for an indoor sitting area if one does not want to enjoy the terrace or the living area in the main portion of the house.
A private staircase leads to the upstairs master suite which encompasses the entire top floor of the villa. A large balcony overlooks the crystal pool and bright blue ocean and the suite boasts an open air shower, walk-in closet, and king size bed from which one can see and hear the waves and watch the sun rise. It is for sale at $824,000.†
There are also Treetop Villas with ocean views. These villas are one or two bedroom and two and three bath floor plans with Mexican tile baths, hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, large verandahs, expanded living areas, outdoor tub off the master suite, and fully equipped kitchens with granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances including dishwasher and washer/dryer. Each villa is on a large lot with established landscaping adjacent to the site of the future luxury hotel and spa. There are plans to create a boutique hotel on a 20-acre beachfront site and a small marina on the lagoon. These are offered for sale from $329,000 to $373,000, depending on the floor plan.†For more information contact Grace Lappin (212) 717-5477 or visit AvalonPartnersLTD.com.
