Overview
Villa -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
San Ignacio, Cayo
The Villa is situated on a well-maintained, securely gated property 3 miles from town, encompassing orchards, duck ponds, an infinity pool, and tons of wildlife. There is fantastic birding from the Penthouse Suite, and it is typical to witness a passing flock of White Fronted Parrot and Parakeet at eye level within 20 feet everyday.
Other daily viewing includes but not limited to: Wild Duck, Osprey, Hawk, Egret, Fly Catcher, Swallow, Groove-billed Ani, Tanager, Warbler, Manakin, Hummingbird, Woodpecker, Falcon, Owl and many more. Red-Lored, Toucan and Aracari can be seen weekly or when certain fruits and seeds are in season.

Because of the size of Avana Villa, also more affectionately known as the “Castle in the Tropics,” this 4-story, 5000 sq. ft. home has two individual apartments for rent. See other listing for Garden Suite.

My wife, 21 yr. old son and I just spent 4 nights in the Avana Villa Penthouse for the first stage of our 12 days in Belize. Owners Martha & Murray proved to be fantastic hosts and the villa was the perfect basecamp for our daily adventures. Guests should plan to first arrive while it is still light out since...

Hi Randi and Tom, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Yes we are 3 miles from town and half of it is that wonderful drive to our jungle. Our road is better than many around here, and we do not own a four-wheel drive commuter vehicle ourselves. The tour companies pick-up here regularly and we keep a list...

I really enjoyed my stay here. The owners were wonderful and friendly. Had so much fun talking Canadian football and hockey while swimming in the pool. The owner also took me to watch as she fed the animals. It was so nice to go out exploring and come back to swim and cook our dinner. The sounds of parrots and...

Just had a great stay at Avana Villa. Located 5-10 minutes out of town (but too far to walk) we did just fine using taxi's/ tour group pick-ups, without a rental car. Penthouse was clean and with AMAZING views of the surrounding areas. No issues with noise at night and saw a flock of about 40 parrots on our fourth...

Map
About the neighbourhood
Located West of the vibrant and expanding community of San Ignacio Town (3 miles), Xunantunich (5 miles), one of the most popular ruins in Belize, Buena Vista Ruins (1mile), and the Mopan River(1.5 miles), there is plenty to do and see during your stay in Belize. Avana Villa is also located in an area known as the hotel district, so you are just minutes away from massages, fantastic meals, jungle tours, and more!
Transportation to the Villa is available via rental car, shuttle, or taxi. During your stay, Belize has an extensive taxi and bus system, which can be reached on the Western Highway, a short 1.5 mile walk from the Villa. Most taxis will pick you up at the villa, if you ask them to, although cell phone reception here is challenging and you may not always be able to call for one

How to get there
Driving Directions:
When you come through San Ignacio heading west towards Benque Viejo you will come to the last traffic circle just past San Ignacio resort. There is an UNO gas station on the left and grocery store on the right. We are 1.5 miles west from the UNO..as you crest a small hill you will see a big sign that says LaPrimivera Wildlife Observation , there is a gravel road on the right, turn there and go another1.5 m to the big white gates. Voila!
There is also a sign for Avana and one that says No Dumping. Real easy! GPS is pinned to the map
