Hi, can someone tell me who owns and/or built the octagon shaped houses on the island? I am looking to build (on the mainland) and wanted to ask about any special building considerations and costs.

Lazy Iguana's website address is and their email is Mo designed the building, it wasn't a prefab octagon house, in case you're looking for prefab houseing. There are several octagon shaped houses in San Pedro also.

Nick Badillo - an island native, built the octagonal house(s) at:

"Tsunami Adventures"

I think they have a website you can find off this one -

I'm not sure if he built the ones across from the airstrip, but I'm sure he worked on them for a while.

John Marin, Jr, aka..Johnny builds wonderful houses. I believe that he built the house next to the bank which I though was beautiful. I "think" his contact number is 011-501-444149. Good Luck!

I met Alberto who is the mayor of the island he is still finishing his house. It is very nice. Definitely talk to him. He knows people and builders.

ARJ Design & Construction Offline
The most recent octagonal house constructed on the island is for Ms. Gay Wilentz, the house is located almost across from the Lazy Iguana. The village chairman, Mr. Alberto Villanueva, occupies the house. The building was designed and constructed by ARJ Design & Construction, who also constructed Auxillou Suites and Caye Caulker Condos. ARJ will be on the island in January to construct a private residence on the main street designed by an Architect from the Maryland College department of Architecture and Engineering.

If anyone is interested in plans or construction costs for this Octagonal building, they can contact me via email at or by visiting Or by calling the office in Belize City at 223-2088 or cel number 610-3931.
