Sunset Pointe Top Floor Condo with Best Views and Breeze in Placencia Belize!

Sunset Pointe Top Floor Condo with Best Views and Breeze in Placencia Belize!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 25, 2015
2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with views of Caribbean Sea and Mayan Mountains

This is the best location in Placencia! Sunset Pointe sits on the southern tip of the Placencia peninsula and is surrounded by water on three sides. Our condo is on the top floor with gorgeous views and a wonderful breeze. When rented as a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo the max is up to 6 people. When rented as a 1 bedroom 1 bath condo the max is up to 4 people. Each room opens to a covered private outside porch through French doors.

The condo includes a shared swimming pool, hot tub, and thatched roof viewing dock on the Caribbean for your enjoyment. There is a caretaker on site to assist you, and a fishing/tour guide is available. The unit is just blocks from the center of Placencia Village which features restaurants, beach bars, and entertainment.

Rental of our condo includes the use of 4 bicycles and 2 kayaks.

Getting to Placencia...

Fly into Belize International Airport and then take a 35 minute flight to Placencia airstrip via one of the local Belize airlines (Tropic Air or Maya Island Air). The other option is to rent a vehicle at the international airport and take a scenic 3.5 hour drive to Placencia.

Belize is often referred to as one of the Seven Underwater Wonders of the World. The world's second largest barrier reef runs parallel to its coast. However, the barrier reef is not the only factor that makes Belize one of the world's most popular destinations for scuba divers and snorkelers.

Many of the small islands, known as 'cayes,' that lie off the coast of the Belizean mainland have their own coral reefs, with spectacular underwater gardens teeming with sea life of all types.

The clear turquoise waters (which average 79-84 degrees) and the proximity of the barrier reef make Belize a favorite destination for divers and snorkelers. The ocean floor ranges from 5 to 35 feet, so both divers and snorkelers have the opportunity to swim in what seems like an underwater aquarium, teeming with colorful tropical fish of all sizes and types and beautiful coral formations.

The 'cut' (channel) leading out to sea functions as a sort of 'fish freeway' for many large fish, including giant groupers, barracuda and nurse sharks, a timid and unaggressive shark species. Divers and snorkelers may enjoy a close encounter with a sea turtle.

Fishing in Belize

Belize is a mecca for those interested in fishing. All kinds of fishing: spin, fly, trolling - can be experienced all year long, and the abundance of game fish guarantees excellent sport.

The estuaries, inlets and mouths to the many rivers are known for their tarpon, snook and jacks. The lagoons and grass flats are known for the bonefish, permit and barracuda. The coral reefs support grouper, snapper, jacks and barracuda while the deeper waters off the drop off are home to sailfish, marlin, bonito and pompano.

Fishing is great all along the coast of Belize. Any of the many rivers which empty into the Caribbean along Belize's coasts can guarantee a daily catch. Most of your guides and boatmen speak English so learning where and what to fish will be no problem.

The waters surrounding Placencia abound with a great variety of saltwater fishing and the area boasts some of the best fishing guides in the country. Most types of fish, including bone fish and tarpon, can be caught year-round. Within 15 minutes of leaving the dock, you can be fishing in tidal flats or in blue water hundreds of feet deep.

Wonderful condo in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is in a beautiful location and has all the amenities you need for a week stay. The condo was clean, well stocked, and has the most amazing views! I enjoyed every morning sitting out on the large porch drinking my coffee and enjoying the view. We will most definitely try to make it back soon! The only thing I would say is that there is construction going on across the waterway and it was a bit noisy during the day.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the condo. The property owners across the canal are building. With growth in our village comes some construction noise. We hope the beauty, sunrises, sunsets, and tranquility of Placencia outweighed the nuisance of the construction noise that occurred during the day.

One of the most peaceful locations in Placencia

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Placencia many, many times, and this was our first time staying at Sunset Pointe. We were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the area was, and the accommodations were perfect for my wife and I, my wife's parents, and our 2 young children. Great views from the crow's nest, great pool for the kids, easy (and frequent) use of the bikes and kayaks. We ate outside on the front porch for every meal. Just a short bike ride or walk into the village, but far enough away to not have any noise. I would definitely consider staying here again on our next visit.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in several places in Belize, Placencia by far was the most relaxing place, great food, great fishing, scuba diving and zipping lining. The rental was the perfect place to unwind, beautiful views of the lagoon and sea, with all the comforts of home, bikes to ride and kayaks to go exploring, I could give this a number rating but better than that, I would stay there again and recommend it to my family and friends. it was a perfect vacation!

Peace, Relaxation, Great Food, Friendly People is what you will find

  • 5 of 5
The condo was clean and as exactly as described in a great location - pleasant walk into the town to walk the beaches or find a great restaurant. Great breeze at night. Pool was clean and enjoyable. For eats - enjoyed the Cozy Corner on the Beach for breakfast and the Purple Space Monkey for dinner. Used Splash for snorkeling adventures - had nice boats, licensed and knowledgeable guides and didn't overcrowd the boat. You can walk everywhere, no need for a car or even a golf cart. Dogs are unleashed everywhere, but don't seem to bother anyone. The only working bowling alley in Belize is just north of Placencia and worth a visit to get out of the sun for a bit. Bring an iron or blow dryer if you need one. Connie (the owner) was extremely helpful and well organized. Would recommend and return.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at Sunset Pointe in Placencia. It had everything we needed and worked both as a center point from which to base trips and as a place to just hang out and relax. The unit where we stayed has two bicycles, which are a great way to get around. Our favorite restaurants / watering holes in town were Purple Space Monkey and Barefoot Bar and our favorite outside of town was Maya Beach Bistro. The caretaker can hook you up with Alfred, who took us on some great snorkeling and fishing trips. The complex itself is very pretty, very quiet and has great views.

Picture Postcard Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our accomodations at the Sunset Point Condos. Everything look just as it did on the website to our relief. Roomy and very confortable like a home away from home. The grounds were kept immaculate. The setting is just picture postcard perfect. The groundskeeper was a great asset to our vacation, always willing to help in any way and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy Placencia. This place is truly a gem.
