Belize Resort Style Oceanfront Home for Sale
MLS # R121202CZ
Spectacular Ocean Front Resort Style Home in the Corozal District of Belize.
NOTE: SINCE TAKING THE GALLERY PHOTOS, BAYSHORE DRIVE HAS BEEN PAVED. SO, IT’S NOW A FULLY PAVED NEIGHBORHOOD!!
If you want to live in the nicest home in the best location, in beautiful and peaceful Corozal, then this is it! From the moment you enter through the remote control bamboo gate and drive up the circular driveway, you’ll feel like you’ve found your very own exclusive resort paradise. With a stunning waterfront, breathtaking views, and private boat ramp, you’ll easily forget the time of day as you soak in the warmth and splendor. Twin Palms simply oozes the Caribbean essence!
Offering many extraordinary features, Twin Palms is located on Bay Shore Drive, the most prestigious residential street in all of Corozal. Tucked away in a lovely corner of Corozal Bay, Bay Shore Drive is a quiet cul-de-sac street, guaranteeing privacy and peace. But, there’s a huge bonus: The location is still only a 2-minute drive to the quaint town center where you can buy fresh produce from the local market or fresh fish from the pier. Even three of the top restaurants in Corozal are literally just a walk around the corner (Corozol Blues, in particular, is like a mini day resort!).
With just under one acre of beautifully manicured land, the property is impressive in its own right, but it’s the talking points and special touches that make Twin Palms so unique. First and foremost is the awe-inspiring 30-foot mahogany tree trunk in the center of the great room. With the umbrella-shaped beam structures extending from this masterpiece, this work of art is truly a sight to behold. In fact, the entire house boasts enormous ceilings which create a relaxed and refreshing open-air atmosphere.
Then there’s the charming jungle style porch, the palapa hammock retreat, and the rainforest mural spanning the entire length of the perimeter wall painted by notable Belizean artist, Carlos Linares. Dotted throughout the house and the easy care garden are other artistic features, and you’ll be sure to make an impression on guests in the BBQ entertainment area as your friends sip cool drinks and sway on the unique palapa swing seats. The highlight of the grounds is the gorgeous in-ground pool with a rock waterfall cave and elevated deck area for maximizing the sea views.
For the guys, the property also boasts a separate two car garage with workshop, utility room, and substantial storage attic. For the kids, there are multiple play areas including an extra long concrete driveway and fun garden paths for rollerblading and scootering, plus a basketball/sports area, soccer “field,” and small private beach. For the craft-minded person, there’s a 240 volt extra large ceramic pottery kiln (included in listing price).
Whether you’re looking for the ultimate retirement sanctuary or an incredible tropical get-away to beat the winter blues, Twin Palms is the place to be. Don’t miss this opportunity to snap up your very own piece of waterfront paradise. Twin Palms is truly unique!

Corozal Town is a festive town with many parades and fairs throughout the year.
A 10-minute drive to the Belize/Mexican border and Free Zone shopping, and 10 minutes more to Chetumal where you can access all the modern conveniences you may need such as Plaza Las Americas (a large, beautiful western style shopping mall with a 13-screen movie theater) and big box stores like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club. Chetumal’s waterfront strip also offers a myriad of casual and fine dining options.
