About Your Hosts, Ken and Taunya
In 2014 we got a crazy idea!
Living in the shadow of the Colorado Rocky Mountains was fun, but we were getting cold! We noticed a significant change in our vacation choices. There was a lot more sand and salt involved. A turn of events in 2014 encouraged us to make a big life change, and in January 2015 we quit our high-tech jobs and bought a beachfront property in Belize. Since June 2015, we've been living in Belize, putting our time, talents and sweat into creating an intimate first-class resort from scratch. If you've found this site, we invite you to book your Best Belize Vacation and let us show you around the beautiful country of Belize!
We chose to live near Gales Point, a small fishing village on the Southern Lagoon peninsula. We are committed to supporting other Gales Point businesses, restaurants and shops. We buy locally crafted furnishings and products as much as we can, and some of those items are for sale here at our resort.
We're committed to supporting local farmers and fishermen and buy as much food as we can from the farmers closest to us. We buy fish from the local coop to ensure we are meeting Belize fishing regulations.
As world travelers, our love for the other animals on our planet is vast. Being a good steward is important to us. We are 100% solar powered and all water used at Leaning Palm Resort is collected from the sky (we do provide bottled water for drinking). Our clean beaches give nesting turtles an accommodating nursery. Sustainability is an important part of living on the planet and we believe that includes travel as well. Help us by bringing a reusable water bottle and environment-friendly sun screens and other toiletries.
