If you are considering buying real estate, moving to, or investing in Ambergris Caye, Belize, I want to let anyone and everyone know about the highest quality construction project I've seen in the hot spots of the Carribean, etc. in several years.

I know a little bit about real estate and construction in these kinds of places. I owned, and recently sold, a yacht/sportfishing charter business out of Boca Raton, Florida. Over the past 5 years, and before that, I have been fortunate enough to visit most of the vacation/resort hot spots in the Bahamas, Mexico, the U.S. & British B.V.I.'s, Costa Rica, etc., and have been looking for a place to buy to escape to, recover, and, perhaps, one day live permanently. I found that place on Ambergris Caye.

The Villas at Del Rio are located just North of San Pedro and across the "Pull Ferry" where "Bob's Flats" meets the beautiful beach. All of the units are 2 bedrooms/2 baths and they are being built to bulletproof U.S. standards wherever possible.

Louis Capello and his business parnter, Chris, definitely have it together when it comes to selling and constructing a quality product!

Chris is an Architect by trade from the U.S. who has designed and overseen several major construction projects in San Pedro over the past several years. Recently, he and Louis, the sales and marketing arm of the operation (what a great personality!), became partners and decided to buy a choice piece of property and to design and build a project that met their high standards of quality construction and beauty. Believe me, they are achieving their goal!!

I visited the Del Rio site... and was so impressed by them and the ongoing construction, that I immediately put down a deposit on a second floor unit in the second building of the 2 to be constructed.

All I can say is..... What a location! What a view! and What a great price for the quality finished product I will soon be the proud owner of! There are very few of the 10 total units left.

If you need information about the project, call Louis at 011-501-603-6686. You can also reach me for a reference at fladbw@aol.com.

Finally, I'd like to say "HELLO" to my upcoming new neighbors and .... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

seashell replies: "What marketing!"

Hi Doug:

As Cloe Said "What marketing?" Yes, the place almost sells itself. Therefore we work Louis's ass off in other ways.

Hi Gang: I'm seldom on the board now that I live here. YES, live here permanate full time. And I was the first buyer in this beautiful project. I must say everyone who has bought in is very nice. I look forward to living in a beautiful place with a bunch of good people.

Louis says bullet proof is an understatement. I say, since I'm from California, this would stand up to any earthquake. I also know it is as hurricane proof as one can get here.

Looks good, and still some affordable units left, interesting floor plans. Another place to add to my growing list of places to check out. Thanks.
