Hi all,

I have kind of a unique request. My husband and I are coming to San Pedro June 7-14. We are looking to find a couple or family that lives in or near town that is interested in hosting the two of us. Our hope is to stay with and meet some locals so they can show us the ropes and life day to day rather than staying in a hotel chosen over the internet.

In exchange we would of course pay for our stay and or bring any items from the US (Seattle) that our host family would like that can't get in San Pedro. Also, my husband is a home builder and can really come in handy around the house!
We just fell in love with the lifestyle and rays of happiness that Ambergris Caye brings and are hoping to meet people that live there so we can get a better feeling of what our life would be like if we move.

We are a fun and outgoing couple that loves sports, the water, and of course having a good time. We also like the occasional rum drink.

If this sounds appealing to you or anyone you know I would love to chat further, and become facebook friends so you can get a better feeling of who we are.

Thanks so much & you guys are so blessed to be living in paradise!

Michael and Kellie Moi
Seattle, WA

Have you searched the couch surfing sites? I think there are some hosts on the island.

Amanda, thanks so much! I had never heard of that site, I will check it out.
Also I want to make sure it's clear that we are not looking for anything for free and certainly are planning on paying for our stay. We are open to lots of options, for example: buying a used laptop in Seattle and trading our stay for that if it's something that is needed. If you need help with a home improvement project, or just plain old US dollars!
Can't wait to get to San Pedro and meet you all!
Kellie

Here is some info on couch surfing:

Of course the couch surfing organization needs hosts too!

I hope you find a great host family and have a wonderful visit to Belize.

We are so so so happy to report that we have found a host family for our stay. Thank you to everyone for being encouraging and can't wait to get the heck down there and away from drizzly Seattle!
