Steppingstones is a relatively new resort,owned and run by us, Chris
and Sue Harris, originally from England.

We are the ideal resort for nature lovers who want to really get
away from it all, or of course for anglers - we offer some of the
best permit fishing in the world, not to mention, bonefish, jacks,
tarpon, snook and much more.

We are located about a mile north of Monkey River Village, a Creole
village of around 200 people. Accessible by boat, there are a
couple of small cafes and they organize fascinating jungle walks.

Steppingstones is only accessible by boat, there isn’t a road. We
have a 26ft long skiff which we use to go back and forth.

We are set in a bay, with a small Caye (island) opposite. We have
around a mile of beach, backed by jungle, with no neighbours. In
one direction our friends are building a holiday cabin, in the other
there is an unoccupied cabin, and that’s it. The beach is small
but has lovely velvet sand, and is pretty good for shell and coral
collecting. In front of us the swimming is lovely, a sandy bottom
and shallow. About 100 yards off the beach is a mini reef which
people like to snorkel.

Lively Waters is our first floor apartment. It has a private
veranda with armchairs and hammocks. Inside there is one open plan
living space, with a kitchen/dining area, the kitchen has a fridge,
stove top, hot water, and is well equipped with pots pans and
utensils. There is a sitting area with armchairs and coffee table,
then a half wall divides off the sleeping area, which has two double
beds. Then of course there is a separate bathroom with shower, wash
basin and wc, with running hot water. There is plenty of hanging
and storage space, and a fan for each bed. Lively Waters is nice
and airy, and catches every breeze.

Our top floor apartment has the same layout but is a little larger,
and has some of the best views in the Caribbean.

You can use our holiday library; we also have a selection of jigsaws
and board games. We can organise excursions to nearby Maya ruins,
beauty spots, nature reserves, adventure trips and more.

We run on solar power, which provides ample power for all, though if
we have several overcast days (not likely) we may ask you to go a
bit steady on the power. We do have generator backup, but in over a
year we have never lost solar power, so have never had to use it.
We also have solar hot water which provides loads of piping hot

The apartments are self catering, but we can offer you meals by
arrangement in our own house which is next door, should you get
tired of cooking. We serve delicious tropical drinks right on the

We should mention the pets. We have three dogs, one small old one
who came from the UK with us, and two rescue dogs. We have two cats
who live outside, and we keep free range chickens for eggs.



Lovely beach right on your doorstep. Kitchen is equiped with
fridge, stove top and plenty of utensils. Fans, constant hot water,
solar power. Restaurant meals by arrangement. World class fishing,
jungle walks, birding. Fresh free range eggs.



This is a beautiful spot, genuinely off the beaten track but not
isolated. It's a real Robinson Crusoe place where you can shrug off
the day to day worries of the world in peace and quiet. There is a
very warm welcome from English owner/managers Chris and Sue Harris,
well known authors of "An Encyclopaedia of Lures" and late owners of
harris Angling in the UK.
