Enjoy the perfect blend of beauty, convenience, privacy, and security at Stardust Sanctuary, a 57-acre property located at the foothills of the Maya Mountains in the Cayo District of Belize.
Known as the Stardust Sanctuary Farm, this retreat home is surrounded by natural beauty and within proximity to all the attractions that Cayo is so well known for. Located 11.5 miles southeast from the twin town of San Ignacio and Santa Elena and a few minutes away from the extensive Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and adjacent parks, Stardust Sanctuary's location is perfectly situated for rural living and an active lifestyle. An outdoor paradise spreads amongst the rolling fifty-seven acres where farming and nature come together with areas of wildlife habitat and agricultural areas defined by young fruit orchards and gardens. With the growing of Industrial Hemp being recently legalized in Belize, some of the crop fields could be easily converted to growing this very lucrative product.
The retreat includes, but is not limited to (special perks with asking price) the following:
The primary residence and secluded (off-grid water and electric) hilltop cabin with a private downstairs apartment for guests,
Two hillside, grid-tied bunkhouses with six separate apartments for numerous visitor accommodations, storage and group activities, one of which includes a 220 outlet for a kiln, and a shared outdoor shower and long-drop toilet (no septic system for bunkhouses);
The lower, main villa (its own septic and flushable toilets) complete with a fully self-contained, air-conditioned apartment, UV water filter, and a luxurious saltwater pool. The 4 buildings offer a combined 12 bedrooms, most of which had previously been used for short-term rentals. Additionally:
Two caretaker cabins, one is very rustic and off-grid, and one has it's own kitchen and bathroom and sizeable living area,
a snake and bat proof barn for up to three horses and a couple of hundred poultry,
a large workshop with 220 outlets and includes large woodworking tools (joiner, table saw, etc),
And two hoop-houses, one with shade cloth, and a hoop storage tent, all providing the infrastructure to develop your dream compound. To further complete the perfect ranch, the property is connected to the grid together with a complete rain-catchment system for backup (four 2000-3000 gal cisterns) and solar power to two of the homes along with two freshwater springs for irrigation. With room to roam, this spacious ranch would be the ideal home for a large family compound, a retreat, agricultural or tourism-based business. It can comfortably accommodate 22 people.
