They each have a lockable entrance from the screen porch, as does the adjacent bathroom. We live in the main part of the house and you are welcome to visit with us, and use our stove and refrigerator.

Where you’ll be

Orange Walk, Orange Walk District, Belize

We are not in town but have 4 permanent neighbors along our dirt road. All are friendly and all are Belizean to the bone. Please note that IF you are community minded, we have a friend who is starting village library nearby and if you want to slip a few gently used books for young people in your suitcase, we can find them a good home. ( especially biographies!)

We are dual citizens as my husband was born here in Orange Walk, myself in Pennsylvania. We met when I was a Peace Corps volunteer here in 1979. I have worked as a dental hygienist and a mom, Bart as a teacher and in conservation here and a secondary ag. Teacher in the US ( Arizona). We are pretty easy to get along with, as long as we are fed and dry. We enjoy receiving visitors who know more than we do about anything, except maybe Satan worship and Fried Twinkies. We have two grown sons who live on the property. See the profile picture for whole family - daughter and grandson and one son live in the US.

During your stay

We have lots of family and friends in OWT, so if we don't know something we at least know who to ask. Most of our guests want to go to Lamanai and we will direct you to tour operators who can take you there. Other places that are well worth seeing are the Programme for Belize conservation area and Blue Creek and Shipyard. Sarteneja is a quiet fishing village next to the Bay and it is easy to catch the bus from Orange Walk out to there. Plan on spending a night or two there if you do go by bus. Another way to get to Sarteneja if you are coming from Mexico is to stop at Corozal for the night and take the water taxi to Sarteneja the next morning. Spend a day and night at Sarteneja and the head out to Orange Walk by bus early the next morning. From Orange Walk you can go off to Lamanai that same day. The north has a lot to see and you can't really say you have seen Belize until you see it all!
