A large kitchen with granite counter tops, bar with stools, all stainless appliances and fully equipped.

Bedroom #1 has a king size bed and a trundle bed, bedroom #2 has a queen size bed and bedroom #3 has a queen size bed and a trundle bed.

Belize Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Villa with our extended family last month, which included two families with young kids and some grandparents. The property worked very well because each family could essentially have their own living space while still affording ample communal area. The amenities and housekeeping were outstanding. Sitting on the couches in the breezeway, reading with some rum punch is definitely Belize at it's finest!

Family reunion and adventure holiday.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Ranguana for 3 nights as part of a family reunion / adventure holiday. What a perfect place for a large multi-family gathering. We all had most comfortable beds, luxurious bathing facilities and loads of privacy. Not always common for a party of 10.

The caretakers next door were friendly and helpful, and the dog in residence was a big hit with the kids and helpfully barked at strangers.

We only ate breakfasts at the villa as there were so many fantastic restaurants close by. But the kitchen seemed well-equipped. It was even equipped with fresh mangoes from the trees in the yard. Fantastic!

Of course, being a third world country, there was a problem with the electricity one afternoon, but the locals worked until 10 pm to resolve the problem. We took advantage of the little lending library, as we spent many relaxing hours on the covered patio chairs or hammocks, reading and enjoying the cool ocean breezes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful villa, unsafe area

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at the Villa Ranguana in June 2013. Our experience was mixed. The villa is large and beautiful, with amazing views. We did have some issues though, which is why I gave it a 3 star rating. The home itself is large and beautiful. The views are amazing. All of the information in the description is true.

We had a couple issues with the villa. First issue would be the safety issue. This is of no fault to the owners or property managers or the caretaker, but just a fact of life in a country like Belize. The home is a large gorgeous home in an area that has mostly poor people living in it. It stands out like a sore thumb to potential thieves. Locals know it is a vacation property and that tourists are coming in and out, so would be thieves are watching this place. I was aware that theft can occur, so we were careful to always lock all doors day and night. Also, the way the home is configured, the downstairs bedrooms are separte from the upstairs portion of the house (i.e. there is no internal staircase between the upstairs and downstairs levels). Our second evening at the villa I must have left a kitchen window unlocked. It was a little after midnight and we had just fallen asleep when we heard a noise. I sat up in bed and to my shock, a man was walking down the hallway toward the master bedroom. I yelled at him and he quickly ran back out the kitchen, climbed the counter and jumped out the window. Needless to say, we made sure all windows and doors were locked multiple times each night after that. This setup of not having access to the downstaris bedrooms from the upstairs is not the best setup for a family with young children.

Second issue was that some of the appliances didn't work. The refrigerator leaked on the floor and we were not told about this until after my wife slipped on the water and bruised her arm. The blender and other kitchen appliances didn't work either. Also, the A/C unit in the master bedroom went out during our stay and no one could repair it while we were there do to rain.

There are some great pluses to this property, but it is not without it's issues.

Pros: beautiful large home; great balcony overlooking the sea with gorgeous views; right on the beach; beach is virtually a private beach; wonderful caretakers next door(Alberto and Francine); most amazing dog (Sheba).

Cons: felt unsafe after the breakin described above; can be very windy at the property (we did visit during the rainy season); some appliances were not working.

Owner's Response: Doug, we are sorry you didn't have the 5 star experience most of our guests over the years have had. We certainly hope to improve if you come back again.

For others reading this review, the Villa is located a couple of miles to the North of Placencia and couple of miles South of Seine Bight. The 4 to 5 mile stretch between the 2 villages is where the Villa is located and has many high end resorts (like Coppola's) and private nice homes owned by foreigners to Belize.
We encourage all of our guests to lock doors and windows especially at night as the vast majority of crimes in this area of Belize are crimes of opportunity.
The Villa has a good security system that will alert you if someone comes up the stairs, and encourage any unwanted visitor to leave. For the best security, guests should not turn it off.

As far as the appliances we have replaced all of the problem appliances noted and now have backups in most cases, so if anyone has a problem with an appliance, it can be replaced immediately.

Each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit, so if one fails the other 3 will still be working. The problem unit has now been fixed.

Great spring break trip

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 8 had a very interesting trip to Placencia. The highlights were ziplining at Bocawina, a place recommended by Stan and Mary, snorkeling with Joy Tours, enjoying the beach, and experiencing the culture of the Belize people. Villa Ranguana was an excellent vacation house and was exactly as advertised. The villa's grounds were cleaned daily, which was very important since there's rubbish and sea weed that washes up daily. The beaches on either side are not clean at all. The housekeeping was very good, also. Stephen and Diana were very helpful with anything we needed. The house was clean, attractive, and spacious. Stan and Mary were most accomodating and helpful before and during our stay. Sheila, the villa dog, was a hit with all.
We enjoyed several restaurants in Placencia and Maya Beach to the North . The Bistro, Purple Space Monkey, and one at Robert's Grille were some of our favorites.
Two incidents disrupted our vacation, one not related to the villa. The last evening, when we were packing, doing laundry, and back and forth a lot to the downstairs rooms, someone entered a bedroom and stole a cellphone, Ipad, Ipod, and jewelry. Our entire family was upstairs at the time and did not hear or see the intruders. So you cannot leave the doors unlocked for even a few minutes. Be very careful about this, especially if you have small children.
If renting a car, do not expect American quality of equiptment. We had 3 different autos during our 8 day stay due to 2 breakdowns ,and ended up limping to the airport for our departure. Very high mileage on all--180,000 for the last one. We would take the short flight from Belize City if we were to go again, and rent a car in Placencia.

Spring Break 2013

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous week stay at Villa Ranguana. The villa is immaculate and has everything you can ask for on a vacation - comfortable lounging areas, stocked kitchen and obviously immediate access to the beach and sea for impromptu snorkeling and swimming sessions. It's very spacious and we enjoyed figuring out from where we would look out at the ocean each evening, especially with the breeze cooling everything off. We enjoyed identifying the various birds from the upstairs verandah, and Sheba the dog was a great companion to all of us. Another huge plus, for the fair skinned among us, was the ability to lounge in the shade and watch the kids swim, snorkel and kayak just a few yards away.

We were quite active and spent one day on a snorkeling tour out to Ranguana Caye; one day doing a waterfall caving tour with Ian Anderson's Cave Branch Adventures; and one day hiking up to a beautiful waterfall in Mayflower National Park.

In terms of restaurants and cafes in downtown Placencia, we became very familiar with Tutti Frutti for our daily ice cream fix. We also had dinner at La Dolce Vita and The Secret Garden, both of which we'd highly recommend. Make sure to have Spaghetti Carbonara at La Dolce Vita - it's amazing.

This is my third stay at the Villa Ranguana. A perfect getaway for a full tropical experience. Immediate access to snorkeling, airport, dining, and shopping. Secluded enough for a private stay. Full accomodations. Stan and Mary provided us with whatever needed to make our stay complete. Pets are welcome too!
