Newly completed in 2016, this 4 total bedroom, 4 total bath rental building plus unique bonus flex space offers adaptable rooms, high ceilings, and rich natural light.
The units boast magnificent polished hardwood counters, exposed wood beam, & dynamic sconces which offer the perfect balance for casual and formal entertaining and vacationing alike. The verandas offer magnificent views of the tropical landscaping of the village along with the quiet and serene boating canals abutting the back of the buildings. Glass louvers open to a 180 degree views, and each unit comes equipped with all the appliances needed for immediate rental/vacationing accommodations.

How desirable are these units? Prior to the onset of the COVID pandemic these units were operating at 60-80% nightly occupancy rate and appear to be quickly climbing back to those pre-covid numbers now that travel restrictions have been lifted and tourism has started to rebound.
For the number crunchers among you, here are some cold hard facts you won’t want to miss: At $720,000 US sale price, the improvements (w/furnishings) on the property are being sold for $545,000 (since vacant lot prices in Mahogany Bay are $175K US. And climbing). The furnishings for a 4-plex of Keeping Suites (to Hilton standards) comes to approx. $88,000 US. So subtracting furnishings and land cost, we are left with $457,000 for the sale price of the 4-plex (4 hotel suites) improvements. That equates to a per door cost of $114,250 US for improvements. At 2,240 total sq.ft., that works out to a cost of $204 US per sq.ft. build cost! Do not miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own and invest in your own rental 4-plex in Mahogany Bay Resort and Beach Club - Ambergris Caye, Belize’s most popular resort destination.
