If you have have interest in San Pedro Belize rentals – this post is for you. Robert who owns a house on our street is renting the upstairs 2bedroom apartment. Location is lagoon side about 1.5 miles south – 2 streets past the sausage factory.

I am always interested to see what places are like inside so I decided to go have a look – the apartment is clean and cozy. I really liked custom wood spice rack – eating bar and futon couch that was made in Belize with local Belize wood. Bathtub and Boat canal in back yard both great features too – tubs are not as common here.

This apartment is a great example of what you can rent and what it will cost you – including basic bill pricing.

$600usd monthly with a washer and dryer $500usd without
Utilities extra – electricity runs about $150 bzd and water $22bzd – based on one person estimate
$22bzd Cable tv split – Direct tv – 108 channels
$ 60bzd Propane for gas stove per tank

To see the apartment please call Robert McBride – 626-1486

$ 60bzd Propane for gas stove per tank

I know alot of times I am reading either a post you have or some other info and they talk about say the “San Mateo or DFC” area…….how are where are the districts broken down. Would love the clarification.

I am in the rental property business and I can tell you this is less expensive than here in Texas. Utilities way cheaper also, I pay $150 US a month for cable and internet. (broadband, very fast, $45 a month of that $150) minimum charge on water at least $50 (includes sewer and garbage collection)
This place looks pristine! Well taken care of.

tacogirl November 16, 2010 - 6:25 am

If you add internet cost that cheaper factor could all go out the window. $129 bzd was coral cable middle speed and we pay about $410 bzd for 1mb [they recently doubled everyone’s speed on BTL]

EEEYOW! An outdoor tub in Canada with no hot water! I think I would be taking one bath a year on Aug. 1st. LOL. You Canadians are some tough hombres!

tacogirl November 16, 2010 - 6:27 am

ha ha we used to fill it much earlier than we wanted to use it and let the sun plus a few pots of hot water worth closer to the time help make it more enjoyable.

WoW!! A bathtub AND a boat canal, right in the backyard!!!!!!!!! Awesome.

tacogirl November 15, 2010 - 5:14 pm

lol Mystery I am fond of backyard tubs. Back in Canada we had a nice claw foot one in our garden and often enjoyed a nice soak out there – unfortunately we did not have hot water hooked up to it.

Bob November 15, 2010 - 2:11 pm

Wow Laurie great info! A couple of questions, do you happen to know approximately how many square feet it its and is that the utilities cost with A/C?

tacogirl November 15, 2010 - 5:04 pm

I do not know exact square footage Bob – somewhere between 750 – 900 range. Electricity would be higher with ac – how much depends how often you run it.

Renee November 15, 2010 - 12:20 pm

Thanks for the great information. Is $600 a month about standard for a two bedroom apartment and how much do one bedroom, one bath apartments usually run? Keep up the great work tacogirl; your blog is awesome!

tacogirl November 15, 2010 - 5:07 pm

Not totally standard Renee – it is all relative to location and type pf place – condo vs house/apt. Not sure price on one bedroom apts these says we used to pay $450 usd for one bdrm when we first arrived and lived in town. Thanks for the compliment glad you enjoy my blog.
