Private Heaven is located on Lark Caye, an island 6 miles off Placencia in the Caribbean Sea. Right in front of the house a breathtaking coral reef, perfect for snorkeling or taking the kayaks. On the backside a beautiful lagoon. The eco-lodge is powered with solar (+ backup generator), AC in both bedrooms, TV with Netflix, Wii console, hot water, well equipped kitchen, BBQ, 2 King Size beds, huge bathroom & shower, ocean deck, Wifi, USB-outlets, HQ Bluetooth speaker, hammocks.

El alojamiento
The 35 feet front side of the house has a panorama view to the Caribbean Sea with a breathtaking coral reef just a few steps into the water. It is a beautiful snorkeling area with all kind of colorful corals, fish and sea life. On the back side you will find a protected lagoon like in a documentary with birds including pelicans and a Mangrove forest.
The eco-lodge is powered by 12 huge solar panels and 24 deep cycle solar batteries.
The hot water comes from a solar water heater with an on-demand backup gas water heater if you need it. Your fresh water for bathroom and kitchen is collected rain-water, stored in 5 water tanks with a capacity of 660 gallons each. I will show you how to use the ACs not to run out of power. If you need more power, there is a 5 kW Diesel generator as backup, so you are always safe. The eco-lodge provides high speed internet with a dish to dish communication (island to mainland), it´s a flatrate and your data usage is unlimited.
In the living room you will find a smart TV with Netflix, YouTube and other streaming apps just in case that you have to hide inside because of bad weather. And your kids will love the Wii console, if they need a break from all the adventures on the island - or you need a break :-)
I am also providing a tablet with a communication app, where you can text, call or even video-chat with me. On the tablet you will also find a rain-radar application with storm warning notification, a dashboard for your solar system if you want to track how much energy is consumed compared to the collected solar energy.
The kitchen is fully equipped with toaster, blender, coffee maker, bar shaker, wine cooler, a huge fridge/ freezer combination, an electronic high quality gas stove and color changing LED lights. All rooms have ceiling fans, both bedrooms in addition ACs.
The bathroom provides a very comfortable and large open shower without any sticky bathroom curtains. You will be amazed how it feels to take a shower with pure rainwater and without any chemicals. The toilet works like your toilet at home, there is no need to separate the toilet paper, you just flush it down. The waste water gets purified by a real water treatment system which serves our plants.
Both bedrooms provide high quality king size beds, ceiling fans and AC.
Before your check in a professional cleaning team prepares the house for you which takes half a day to a day. If you need any assistance you can text me via the tablet communication app. My own house is out of sight, but it only takes one minute thorugh the mangrove forest to get to your lodge. Privacy for you and me has the highest priority on the island, I will never just show up - and my guests also respect this vice versa. I have a very cute Border Collie girl (dog) who loves my guests. At the same time she is a the perfect watch dog. If any stranger (on a kayak) would approach from the lagoon on the backside, she would bark and let me know that somebody is coming. Don´t get me wrong, in three years we never had a problem with any kind of crime, it´s just sometimes the case that folks from the other islands run out of cigarettes and then come asking. That does not happen any more with me and my dig protecting the dock. From the front side there is no way that boats can approach, it´s too shallow because of the amazing coral reef. Overall you have around 1 acre just for you and of sight on also an acre I got my own house to be there for you in case you need assistance. And whenever I had a good day with fishing I would let you know in case you like fresh fish out of the ocean, too. Of course for free. That´s how I get my food out there.. .

Acceso para huéspedes
Don´t worry how to get to the island and back, your booking includes the transfer from the mainland (Placencia) and back with my 25 ft two-deck boat. In case you run out of something, we will find a cheap way, how you can get what you need. Once again, the whole eco-lodge is yours, I have my own small cabana out of sight (you can´t see or hear me, and I can´t hear or see you).

Otros aspectos destacables
Please read this section carefully and decide if the place fits to your needs and expectations!!!
This is not an All Inclusive resort, you need to be able to cook on your own. You have to love nature and understand that the unique experience is based on the fact that you are on an island where everything is kept natural. It´s in the middle of nowhere, so from time to time you may also have to deal with insects like sand flies or beetles at night when you are outside (see below more information). The ocean can be rough sometimes. You should have some level of fitness for everything. Climbing in and out of the boat, no pavement, just nature and the ocean-front lodge. If you are not sure, send me a request, we will find out, if this Robinson Crusoe adventure is something for you ! Here the most important facts:

1. Everything is kept natural. There is no dock far into the ocean to keep the corals untouched. There is a deck with steps into the water, but the water is shallow when you get in. And there was no cutting of mangroves to protect the island and it´s wildlife.
2. There is no beach, it´s a coral rock ground with one of the most beautiful coral reefs in Belize! You need water sandals to protect your feet or use flippers.
3. Insects:
3.a. Sand flies: if the wind dies down or comes from the West instead of the prevailing wind from the East sand flies are getting out of the mangroves and may bite you. Most of the time there is no impact, but on rainy days or wind from the opposite direction sand flies love the porch to hide. I am providing mosquito coils in cases that you have to light up, the smoke helps a lot. I am also providing bug spray for your skin if the weather is really bad.
3.b. Ants: on some days before a heavy rain and with a special sea level there may get some ants into the house. They are hiding from the rain and the high tide and are searching for shelter. This may occur on 5-10 days per year and it has no impact on you. But of course I always keep a spray bottle against flying and crawling insects if you want to get rid of them.
3.c. Beetles: Once per year there is the season of some kind of beetles that are passing through the Cayes (islands). It´s just for 3 or 4 days and then it´s over. They don´t harm you, but the air is full of them at night if you keep the lights on. Once again, it´s nature and I won´t do anything to harm our environment.
4. Water: the house collects the rainwater via the roof and gutters and the rain water gets stored in 5 tanks with 660 gallons capacity each. With the rain water you can take your shower, brush your teeth, wash the dishes, no problem at all. For cooking and drinking you will use the bottled water that I provide in 5 gallon water bottles.

Additional information about activities:
You can book boat tours starting directly from the island. To cover this great opportunity I’m in cooperation with the best local tour guides and Captains. For example: the Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world, is just 30 minutes away. You could enjoy snorkeling with nurse sharks, spotted eagle rays, sea turtles or have a picnic on one of the small tropical islands.
And there are more opportunities what you could do depending on your wishes. We will discuss that individually.. .

You will be completely on your own on the one acre. It is not possible to walk to neighbors or talk to somebody, total seclusion. The only person who will be available for you - in case you need something - will be me in my own house next to the boat dock. We never had a security issue but I knew that this is the missing link to feel totally safe and still enjoy total privacy and seclusion. You will only see me and my dog, if you need something and the only other friends out there are cute hermit crabs, pelicans, ospreys, colorful fish and the (living) coral reef. When you are on the ocean deck you may see the most beautiful daily visitors: a family of spotted eagle rays! They only visit when you are out of the water but then they come as close as possible and it seems like they want to say "hi" to you! And with some luck you may watch a manatee or even snorkel with him - don´t push it, they come if they are interested in you. Sometimes also dolphins get closer or in the bay on the backside. With some luck you may meet them when you are kayaking.

Hi, I am Gigi, born 1974 in Austria. After 2 decades of a nice life in the upper management I understood something is missing and that my life is not fulfilling anymore. After my frustration got bigger and bigger - and at the same time my dream took all my attention 24 hours the day, I knew it was time to change everything. I took the maximum risk to achieve what I was dreaming of: my own island in the Caribbean with an eco friendly off grid beach house - without any neighbors. Just me and the pure nature. In 2016 I have sold all my stuff in Europe, my home, my car, every single DVD, all my beloved technical equipement, my Dolby Surround System, my 60 inch Full HD Flatscreen, my X-Box :-) And purchased a completely undeveloped island in Belize, Central America! In January 2017 I left everything behind and travelled without one single key to Belize, just one bag with my most important things. That was a very strange feeling, when you realize that everything you own is an undeveloped island. No cozy home to live in, no car, no friends. Nothing was left. From the first day on I started to build my dream house on Lark Caye, 6 miles from Placencia. 7 months later, end of July 2017 almost everything was finished. And it got better, than I could imagine in my wildest dreams. Pelicans around me, Spotted Eagle Rays, an unbelievable Coral Reef right in front of me that I did not really realize right from the beginning. All the money is spent now and everything turned out well, the place is so beautiful. I have new friends, I live in a beautiful apartment on the mainland (whenever I´m not on the island), I love my GMC Pick Up Truck, I have 3 boats and all the people here in Belize are so warmhearted and friendly. My first guests loved the place as much as I do. In addition I´ve registered a boat tour company, searched for one of the best Captains in Belize who is now my business partner and best friend. With this setup, my guests are able to enjoy the whole beauty of the Belizean waters - and the second largest reef in the World - the Belize Barrier Reef! My dream is reality now and I still can´t believe, that I am here. But if you trust your ideas and strength 100%, give 100% and dream 100%, then everything is possible. From a life behind the office-desktop to a life in the middle of the Caribbean. It is just unbelizable :-)

Durante tu estancia
It´s the ultimate adventure to stay on an undeveloped island 6 miles off the coast, maybe you never experienced that in your whole life. But you will never feel lost, I´m close enough to help you in case of an emergency 24 hours the day. If you are coming with kids, it will be my pleasure to plan a funny treasure/ scavenger hunt between your house and my house. Absolutely safe, but with some funny aspects related to sustainable energy and our vulnerable environment. Main goal is to have fun, a bit of adventure and of course with safety as highest priority.
