About this listing
Rock Farm is close to Belmopan, and is home to Belize Bird Rescue. We have amazing grounds, river swimming, jungle trails and lots of birds and wildlife. Rock Farm is suitable for singles, couples and older families, and a perfect stopover en route to and from the airport. We are 1 mile from Roaring River Golf Course and centrally located for Cave Tubing, Mayan ruins, ATM Cave and the attractions of Western and Hummingbird Highways.
The Toucan room is a gorgeous sunny room with king-sized bed and fabulous closet space for the long-staying travellers. It is air-conditioned for that hot season comfort. There’s a double glass door opening out onto your private verandah with table and chairs. The en-suite bathroom has both a shower and a Jacuzzi tub, it’s fully tiled with double wash-basins and has piping hot water. The windows in your room have gorgeous garden views and you wake daily to the sounds of the parrots and other birds.
We provide a large bottle of mineral water on a dispenser, plus tea and coffee making facilities. An iron and ironing board are in the room should you need to get rid of any suitcase wrinkles. There is wifi throughout the house and also a wired internet access point in your room for more speed.
The Toucan Room guests have their private balcony and in addition the shared balcony and access to the shared lounge and dining area. Everyone is welcome to explore absolutely anywhere on the property apart from areas where birds are being rehabbed. We give guided tours of certain areas of the rehab centre and can certainly tell you all about our hands-on work with the birds and the projects we run throughout the year. Float down the lazy river or swim in the pools by the water wheel, walk the trails, sit by the pond, sunbathe on the roof... whatever takes your fancy.
Interaction with guests
Nikki and Jerry love to socialise with their guests, if that's what you would like! We can arrange tours and vehicle rental, find you a personal guide and give you our insight into living in, or visiting, all areas of Belize. And of course we can talk for England about wildlife and Belize Bird Rescue!

Nikki & Jerry are a husband and wife team, founders of Belize Bird Rescue and owners of Rock Farm 50 acre reserve. We have been in Belize since 2003 and fell into bird rescue entirely by accident. We now run the country's only licensed multi-species avian rescue centre, helping orphaned, injured or rescued birds of all species with a focus on halting the illegal trade in wild-caught parrots.
Rock Farm Guest House generates sustainable income to keep the rescue funded. Staying with us in our home will make you feel warm and fuzzy all over as, not only will you enjoy a beautiful property, you will be helping us to save the birds!
We operate a home-from-home with lovely rooms and great home cooking. We have 50 acres of fabulous grounds for you to explore, and a crystal-clear river to swim in.
Please note that we don't have AC or TV in the rooms and there are dogs on the property and the parrots are very loud in the morning!
