Set within the breathtaking views and magnificent mountain landscapes of the Hummingbird Highway, this impressive rainforest property provides a lovely eco-retreat set on 30 acres of natural forested land with a little over 850 ft of highway frontage just ¼ mile from the Caves Branch River. Its lush terrain gently slopes upward over 125 ft to hilltops roughly 650 ft back before falling off 50 ft downward towards the rear boundary approx. 1,600 ft back from the highway. Two limestone caves can be found on the property and multiple hilltop and hillside locations that would well suited for additional homesites offer for opportunities to explore and to expand.

The property boasts a 1,472 sq ft 1 bed, 2 bath main cabin with a loft that offers a large 830 sq ft outdoor deck and bar area at the back and opens out towards the gorgeous hillside landscapes that make up the property. The cabin has just gone through a complete renovation and has been upgraded and improved to offer a beautiful rainforest escape with vaulted ceilings, wet bar and attractive hardwood floors. The back deck offers a secluded outdoor area for entertainment and a delightful thatched palapa that can be used as an outdoor bar, dining area or a space to lounge in the shade.

In addition to the main cabin, there’s also a 468 sq ft caretaker’s cabin with a full bathroom, kitchenette and its own 100+ sq foot front porch that has also been completely renovated and provides an screened-in lower level that’s great for lounging in the evenings and provides additional sq footage that can be used as a storage area or “outdoor” kitchen/washroom.

Both homes as well as the filled in driveways and parking areas sit on roughly 1.5 acres of land that has been cleared and beautifully landscaped, leaving much of the natural rainforest and all of the towering hardwoods that stand right outside your doors intact. The remaining 28+ acres of the property is in its natural state; a tropical rainforest landscape filled with hundreds of cohune palms and towering hardwood trees scattered throughout. Its undulating terrain provides multiple excellent locations to build on, each with spectaculars views of the surrounding Maya Mountains.

Life along the Hummingbird Highway would give you many opportunities for adventure and a host of activities just minutes away. Enjoy quick trips to the St. Herman’s Caves and Blue Hole National Park just 2 miles down the road or brave the experience of the famous Black Hole Drop deep within the Caves Branch Nature Reserve. Spend your evenings dining at the Grove House Restaurant at the Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge and weekend trips to the beach at Jaguar Reef in Hopkins about an hour away. Other nearby attractions include the Five Blues Lake National Park, Dreaming Giant Waterfalls, Springfield Natural Pools as well as the Lamanai Chocolate Company located right next door.

For your everyday needs the village of Armenia is just 5 minutes away, where you can get fresh fruits and vegetables, along with basic necessities. For everything else the capital City of Belmopan is a quick 20 min drive northwest. Electrical power connectivity runs right along the front of the property and the location gets excellent cell phone service.

The size and location of this property offers both residential and commercial possibilities and would be perfectly suited as a private rainforest retreat or vacation home for you family as well as an outstanding opportunity to develop an impressive rainforest eco-lodge within the Hummingbird Hills that could be developed complete with nature trails, cave tours and hilltop lookout.
