Interaction with Guests
We are reachable at any time via phone, email or messaging.
Our home is located along the George Price Highway (formerly Western Highway), 6 miles west of the capital of Belmopan. We are along the major road in the district and public transport is at close proximity, enabling you to work in Belmopan or San Ignacio town. The village stores are just a 5 minute walk downhill. From this location you can easily make trips to the inland Blue Hole & St Herman's Cave, the beautiful Mountain Pine Ridge, San Ignacio Town, the Maya village of San Jose Succotz & Xunantunich, as well as to cave-tubing and zip-lining attractions. The property is right uphill from the pickup point to Belize's best known cave, the Actun Tunichil Muknal.
There are public buses in both directions on the Highway: Belmopan - Belize City and San Ignacio - Benque - Guatemala. During weekdays, buses pass every 30 minutes in both directions. There is also a local mini van which for just BZ1.50 take you into Belmopan for your market shopping or other activities.
Take good care of our place.
Our stay with Joseph was great! Him and his wife are very busy so often you'll feel as if you're staying a private house!
When they are around they are the friendliest people! Joseph went out of his way to answer my many questions before we arrived and picked us up in Belmopan taking us to grab beers or first night in town.
Their place is super convenient to get to ATM cave (a must do!), blue hole, St . Herman's cave, and crystal cave! If you want to do other tours Cayo adventure tours is the best company to book with. They charge only $15 extra a person for door to door pick up! (Ask for Louis as your guide! He's the best!)
You are walking distance to the grocery store so we didn't need a car.
This place is the perfect home base to see all the unbelizeable things the mainland has to offer! :)
Joseph was an amazing host who went above and beyond. Big pluses are his knowledge of Belize and his wonderful wife Marta. The place was nice and clean and their back porch was beautiful, perfect for relaxing on the hammocks.
I will definitely return and refer my friends who travel to Belize!
We had a wonderful stay with Jo and Marta, they were very warm and helpful hosts. I recommend them to anyone looking for a room in the Belmopan area.
This was our first Airbnb experience & we LOVED it. Joeseph & his wife were wonderful hosts. Their backyard & deck were the perfect place for a morning coffee or late night drink. This was also a great hub to see central Belize. It's about 200 yards to walk to the entrance of the ATM Caves (where you can meet your guide). A reasonable bus ride to Caves Branch where you can repel into caves, cave tube, etc. And a grocery store right down the street to pick up food to cook.
We had a nice time there...the house is amazing, we enjoyed the place, very peaceful. There is everything, wi fi, hot water...we felt at home. And Joseph and his wife Martha are lovely and friendly!!! I hope to go there again!!
Joseph´s place in Teakettle is a wonderful place where we spent a wonderful month with our two small kids. The porch is perfect to relaxation and bird-watching (including hummingbirds and parrots), and you can be lucky to see squirrels, agoutis and iguanas. Everything in the house is working – including good internet service.
The location is perfect for tours to the ATM-cave, Barton-Creek cave, butterfly-farm, San Ignacio, Mountain Pine Ridge, Spanish Lockout, Belmopan and other fabulous tourist sites in the Cayo district. It is best to have your own transportation.
Joseph (Dutch/Belizean) and his wife Marta (Belizean) were fantastic hosts – friendly, humorous and always very helpful.

About the Host, Joseph
Being for more than 22 years a Dutchman in Belize, I like good company and conversation on the back porch of our country-side house, exchanging ideas and experiences about global and local challenges and solutions. My hobbies are music (have played and recorded with bands over the past 3 decades) and motorcycle riding (made a trip from Belize to Argentina) in (phone number hidden).
I am looking forward to hosting visitors who have a good sense of humor and know how to see things in perspective. I am guided by the conviction that what goes around, comes around.
