Great location for a vacation home. Away from town and…
Guanaja, Bay Islands, Honduras, CA
When people think of the Caribbean, they often overlook one of its most gorgeous regions—the Bay Islands of the Southwestern Caribbean. Now you can own an island in this glorious, off-the-radar locale only four hours from Houston, Dallas, Atlanta and Miami. Nine-acre Half Moon Cay is being offered completely turnkey. The same family has owned the island for almost 40 years, and First American Title Insurance Company covers the title.
Half Moon Cay features white sand beaches, over 500 towering coconut palms, three furnished homes and nearly a mile of virgin beachfront, all surrounded by clear turquoise Caribbean waters. The island’s homes were carefully designed and built to excellent AIA American standards and feature large decks, vaulted ceilings and mahogany plantation shutters and floors throughout.
The expansive main home—elevated 12 feet above the ground on 75 concrete pilings—offers more than 3,200 square feet in three separate segments, connected by covered outdoor breezeways and living areas comprising another 2,200-plus square feet. The larger guesthouse consists of 900 square feet in two separate sections, while the beachside house (with all-mahogany interior) provides more than 700 square feet. Both guesthouses have ample covered decks with beach views.
The island also features a dock, a newly constructed helipad, several storerooms, a workshop and a freight elevator. Electricity comes via underwater cable from the local power grid on the island of Guanaja, and there are three diesel generators providing backup. Water comes from the cay’s more than 70,000 gallons cistern capacity as well as a water line from the main island.
Despite its seclusion, Half Moon Cay is wonderfully accessible, with an airport located three miles away on the main island of Guanaja, providing domestic connections to international flights.
With its location on the encompassing barrier reef system, Half Moon Cay offers phenomenal snorkeling, flats fishing and diving opportunities right off the shore. Excellent deep sea fishing is just one mile off at the 100-fathom curve. Price just reduced.
Owning a home is a keystone of wealth… both financial affluence and emotional security.Suze Orman
