I am one of "those" new, lurking members looking for a shot of intel on a place I have never visited. Bear with me if you will.
My husband and I are looking to retire in a few years, and plan to be expats....somewhere. We are beginning to visit the places on our short list to check them out.
Ambergris Caye is next and I would like to spend a month around December (to include Christmas) there.
I have read a lot here (thank you) about the pros and cons of different locations, east vs west, etc. Now I have entered the fray by officially registering here, and would love to ask for help.
I would like to rent a home on the eastern side for approximately four consecutive weeks beginning the end of November, or any time in December and into January as long as Christmas is in there.
I realize I am a little late in the season doing so. I have been online exhaustively looking and filtering and whatnot and have some inquiries to homeowners and managers out.
Here is what I think I am looking for, if any of you own homes or know of rentals I may not find on my own:
Private home or something very close to it with a private feel
Waterfront or water view
Min of two bedrooms in case my children come for the holiday
Min of two bathrooms
Laundry on site
Budget I am a little unsure of. $1000 per night is too high, unless it were for a very few days right around Christmas. Hoping to find an owner who would value a longer rental period for stability and could offer a decent rate.
*** Access to a boat would be an incredible bonus as I am an avid and practiced boater*****
As I will be there for a month hopefully, I will also need to sort out a car situation.
Thank you for reading this, and for all the helpful information posted here. I hope I haven't missed something which causes this post to be super redundant or offensive in some way. I am a member of several forums like this and I know the eye rolling that goes on when another new poster comes on asking about something that has been covered a million times.
