There are well-stocked grocery stores in both Seine Bight and Placencia, so you can stock up the fridge and do some cooking OR, sample the many restaurants along the peninsula and in the villages.

Belize it!

You can get there from anywhere! Belize is about two hours by plane from Miami, Dallas (American) and Houston (Continental); about 2.5 hours from Atlanta (Delta). There's also a direct flight from Charlotte via USAir, about 3 hours.

From the Belize International Airport you can hop on Tropic or Maya Island Air for a 20-minute flight to Placencia. You also can rent a car at the Belize International Airport or in Belize City and take an incredibly scene drive, about 3-4 hours. Buses from Belize City are an inexpensive option for 'roughing it' along the route.

The Tourism Center in Placencia Village can provide resources and referrals for all kinds of activities close to Casa Edgell in elsewhere in Belize.

Lots to do and see -- or nothing at all

Because Belize is a small country, you can base yourself in Placencia and take side trips and excursions from there:

* snorkeling, fishing & scuba (including getting certified as a diver)

* guided or self-guided trips to Maya sites

* packages to inland destinations and activities (Cave tubing and zip-lining) or island resorts or destinations (our local cayes or keys)

Of course, you can just hang out on the Casa Edgell verandah with a good book, e-reader, or laptop.

About the Owner

This place is a labor of love by a family with deep roots in Belize. My brother, sister-in-law and I have taken on this project together. Our aunt and her husband live in Placencia Village and other relatives live in Dangriga (Stann Creek District) and Belize City.

Great alternative to expensive resorts

  • 5 of 5
Had a very relaxing five days at Casa Edgell while visiting Belize for the first time. The rental is just far enough off the road to be private, while still in walking distance of resort hotels & restaurants. Locals were also helpful with logistics & getting to town. And a fantastic view to boot!

Location

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Casa Edgell is located on a short lane off the the Placencia Road, just south of Seine Bight Village on the Placencia Penninsula in the Stann Creek District.

The house faces the Placencia Lagoon, with a view of the mountains beyond. Our neighbor on the Lagoon is The Moorings, a yacht marina. Across the Placencia Road are two resort hotels: Laru Beya and The Inn at Robert's Grove.

All Belize beaches -- including those fronting hotels -- are open to the public. Guests of Casa Edgell are free to use the beach at The Inn at Robert's Grove. You may also use the pool there, as long as you plan to buy food or a drinks.

The house is a pleasant bike ride, short drive or taxi ride from the local airport and both Seine Beight and Placencia Villages.

Other Activities: Excursions to Maya sites, zip-lining, cave-tubing, whale-shark viewing. Snorkeling and diving excursions.
