not what we booked

  • 1 of 5
The entire grounds were under construction with at least 6 workers everywhere, walking through the house and on scaffoldings and the decks. None of the amenities listed in the description, like canoe/kayaks/ bikes, were available to use. As of 10/28/14, when we arrived, the house was not ready for guests. A family was also already living in one of the areas of the house that we reserved.

Great lodging for our family with children

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at Decked Out House. It is such a well designed home. I particularly appreciated its family safety features that are not standard for Belize such as baby safe railing and stair landing doors. There was even a crib and an infant life jacket for my 11 month old. The kayaks were fun and the our 4 years safely could fit in them when nestled next to an adult. A couple of the men fished using the canoe and caught one of our dinners. The bikes came in handy too.

The house is very lovely and extremely spacious with lots of windows, French doors. There was a breeze most of the time. So even though it was summer we didn't feel too hot. We hardly used the air conditioners. The mahogany decor is just a gorgeous as shown the photos on it listing.

Placencia is a relaxing and friendly Village, which not overly tourist, yet there is plenty to do. Several of us enjoyed snorkeling and the Monkey river jungle tour. There are many friendly and affordable outdoor bars and restaurants, that serve very good drink and eats. We hope to return to Placencia and again stay at Decked Out House.

Big enough for a our group of 15, Great stay

  • 5 of 5
I hesitated at idea of all 15 of us staying in one 5 bedroom house as we are non-couples. To my surprise Linda had 15 individual beds ready for us. Three of the bedrooms are huge and were set up with 4 beds each without being crowded. The table was also arranged for 15.

The swimming off the dock was a pleasure. We used the bikes canoe and kayaks. The location was perfect too. No car was needed.

The house is gorgeous and clean. The breeze there was greater than expected so been too hot without central air was a non-issue. Its rate is quite reasonable. I recommend it, especially for groups. for

Brilliant House

  • 5 of 5
We were in a party of five, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house itself is truly beautiful, with water front and back (ensuring constant breezes) loads of deck space and hammocks to relax on, and easy access to Placencia (a few minutes walk). I highly recommend this property, as we have all had a great 10 days here. The "house-sitter" Daryl was very helpful in ensuring we arranged great day-excursions at a fair price. There are free bikes to use downstairs, as well as a canoe and some kayaks. Free wi-fi is an added bonus. If you want to come to Placencia, this is the place to stay !

Perfect location, fantastic house, good value

  • 5 of 5
I was part of a party of 13. To my surprise, the house was big enough to accommodate us all. The dining area was prearranged for us with 13 chairs around one table. Three of the bedrooms are huge so sleeping more than 2 in those rooms was no problem. Decked Out House is even more attractive than its photos. The house is surprisingly breezy - we never turned on its air-conditioning. Linda and Darrel were quite helpful. I would definitely feel comfortable recommending Decked out house to a friend. I hope to return

Loved the house and Placencia Village.

  • 5 of 5
The location was terrific. We walked to everywhere we wanted to go in just a few minutes. The house had complimentary bikes which we used a few times. The kayaks were a hit - we explored the lagoon in them.

Placencia Village is a delightful and friendly place. It is not a tourist trap! I am ao glad that we choose to stay in the village where eating out is generally less exspensive than on the peninsula further north and not as convenient as the Village.

The house itslf was rather stunning . I particularly liked the tasteful use of interior fine woods.The owner and house-siiter were friendly and helpful. I will stay at Decked out house again if I am lucky enough to visit Belize again.
