Hatchet Caye is a Turn-Key Tropical Getaway

If you’ve watched more than a few episodes of Newhart and fancy yourself innkeeper material, but you prefer a tropical environment to the freeze-your-ass-off winters of Vermont, we have good news: Hatchet Caye Resort, a private island resort off the coast of Belize, is for sale. For $9.9 million, you can become the new steward of this 7 acre rock, which is encircled by some of the most scenic dive spots in the Caribbean, plus a fully-equipped spa facility, a restaurant (the Lionfish Grill) and a whole lot more.

The main house has five bedrooms, while additional cottages bring the total guest room count to 12. That should translate into a rather lucrative business, and who knows: Maybe during the Northern Hemisphere’s summer months, when there’s no snow and short days for us gringos to escape, you can close shop and have the whole isle to yourself and your friends/family. Or maybe you’re so loaded you don’t even need to keep it open as a resort and you’ll make it a private retreat year-round. A tough (but enviable) decision to make, that one…
