Belize Airbnb & Top Rental Property
Belize Tourism has been on the rise, and the vacation rental market on Ambergris Caye has been booming!
Belize has full foreign ownership (where foreigners have the same ownership rights as locals), and when you buy a home or Belize land, you own it outright with a fee-simple title. The high occupancy and nightly rental rates make Ambergris Caye Real Estate a popular destination for Airbnb investors.
Rental Property Amenities
One of the driving factors of a strong Airbnb rental property is the amenities a home offers; this includes but is not limited to the following:
- Number of Bedrooms
- Private Pool
- Large Bedrooms with Ensuite Bathrooms
- King Size Beds
- Hot Tub or Spa
- High-Speed Internet
The other driving force is how well the property photographs. A well-furnished and decorated property will outperform something more standard. Take pictures that capture the character of the place, the surrounding area, and any amenities.

Bedroom Count for Airbnb
The units with a higher bedroom count often outperform the lower bedroom count homes. Below, you can see the inventory of rental units by bedroom count on Ambergris Caye;
From an investment standpoint, 3 or more bedrooms are a great opportunity due to the lack of inventory on the island of Ambergris Caye. There are 12 homes in the lodging inventory with 4 bedrooms. There are 9 houses with 5+ bedrooms. The lack of supply and high demand creates a high-yield rental income property.
Mahogany Bay is one of the most popular locations for development and investment in Belize (and Ambergris Caye). Mahogany Bay has a rental management program that generates hands-off passive income for owners and investors.
One of the reasons so many investors and owners love Mahogany Bay is the high degree of ownership control. You own the property outright with a fee-simple title (the strongest form of property ownership). As an owner, you have the peace of mind of having professional rental management rent out the property when it is not in use while also having unlimited use and enjoyment.
