TAKE A BREAK FROM THE WORLD AS YOU KNOW IT

We welcome you to the Compass Rose Guest House, a private sea front vacation rental located in Sittee Point, Stann Creek District, Belize, Central America.  The Compass Rose sits directly on the Caribbean Sea between the sleepy little fishing village of Hopkins and the exotic Sittee River. The Compass Rose Guest House is a open plan living cabin that is perfect for two people but can accommodate four. Modern amenities include; Hughes highspeed wireless internet, queen bed, full futon, air conditioning, ceiling fans, fully loaded kitchen w/microwave, fridge & range, bathroom with shower, plus a 14’x16′ wildlife viewing platform out over the water. Take your shoes off, kick back, gaze out over the sea, let the trade winds clear your mind.  Entertainment includes an iHome for your iPod along with books and games.

Kick back in a hammock hanging on the Compass Rose’s large wrap around deck and take pleasure in the never ending view of the  western Caribbean Sea and the many Cayes.  Watch local fisherman paddling handmade dugouts.  Feel the thrill when you see the shy  manatees feeding in the evening or a dolphin swim past.  Just steps from your door wade into the warm waters of the sea and become one with the Caribbean.  Wake up in the morning to a glorious sunrise and the sounds of the jungle welcoming another amazing day in paradise.

Belize a surf-n-turf country just waiting to be explored.  With the Compass Rose Guest House sitting half way down the coast line, most all the major tourist attractions are just a day trip away.  A 40 minute boat ride will take you out to the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and over 400 pristine Cayes.  The scuba diving and snorkeling are exceptional with Belize’s abundance of sea life along with some of the top dive sites in the world. On the mainland explore Mayan ruins, hike in the jungle and take a refreshing dip in the jungle’s infamous Blue Hole off the Hummingbird highway.  Tube through caves, catch a zipline, or learn drumming from a local Garifuna drummer.  Cook up some freshly caught fish or visit one of the local restaurants located just minutes from the Compass Rose Guest House. You might just end up “talking story” with the local Belizeans.
