About the Owner

We landed in Belize in 1973 while vacationing. We fell in love with Placencia and the rest is history.

Placencia Beach Front House On The Caribbean Sea

Escape from Winter

  • 5 of 5
I spent most of January and all of February at this property and have already reserved for 2016. Several friends visited me during my stay, as did my daughter and her husband and young grandsons. Everyone was delighted with the house, the yard and beach, and Placencia. The house is situated for ideal air and light. It is comfortable and has the "non-fussy" vibe you want in a vacation house and so seldom find. Miss Lou was in Placencia for most of my visit and was fun to talk to when we could persuade her to sit down and visit. Everything - restaurants, groceries, activities - was within easy walking distance. I always felt safe at the house and everywhere in Placencia, even walking home after dark by myself. This is a magical place.

The moment you walk into this very bright and open ocean front beach house with a cathedral ceiling and large windows facing the sea, you realize that this is a vacation dream come true. Here you can truly relax in this home away from home. The house comes with everything you need. Outside you will enjoy a large deck, complete with patio furniture and hammocks, with steps down to a huge sandy beach. I am certain that this home has the largest ocean front lot in the village. The yard has many coconut trees and has been meticulously maintained.

My husband and I were fortunate to discover and rent this beach home for 5 weeks. We spent hours enjoying the ocean breeze and the view from the deck. We definitely ate out more than we cooked at home, however, the kitchen is well equipped and using the charcoal bbq was fun. There is ample closet space and plenty of bedding and towels.

We certainly appreciated the cell phone, which was available to us, for contacting the airline (one lost suitcase), calling cabs and arranging tours. The wifi also works very well. The water is heated with solar panels, which is hot and you will never run out. (Our two adult children joined us for the Christmas holidays and we always had plenty of hot water.) Even doing laundry was a pleasure as there is a washing machine available and a clothesline under the deck with a spectacular ocean view.

The house is located near the end of the famous sidewalk, which is convenient for walking to the many delicious restaurants and friendly bars. One of the best grocery stores in the village is very close by.

Ms. Lou and her hired hand went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay.
Placencia is such a friendly village to visit and staying at this beach house made our vacation incredible. That said, we have already reserved this house for our holiday next winter.

We will always have Belize, thanks to Lou

Bogart and Bacall will always have Paris and my wife and I will always have Belize. We took a romantic vacation and could not have found a better location. The village of Placencia is a wonderful place to relax and get away. It offered great food options, wonderful people and access to a lot of great day tours. That said it was made extra special by this vacation house as well as the presence of the owner Ms. Lou. It was a house that she and her husband built on the beach in the 70's. The yard was full of coconut trees and the beach was fabulous with sandy shores that gently slope out to sea. We would shop for groceries at a near by store and fix meals to eat on the porch while watching the ocean, the sky (sun, moon, stars) and the activities farther down the beach. The boardwalk sidewalk that runs through town ends right by her property which makes it easy each day to start a new adventure. We even wandered down the beach, away from the village, to a resort operated by Francis Ford Coppola for a very special night. All in all it was an amazing vacation and our vacation house really gave us wonderful memories that will stay with us for a lifetime, including my proposal on the beach in front of the house to the woman I married.

Super beach house

Best location in Placencia - large property private but near the town. Great being right on the beach - good for swimming, kayaking and some snorkeling. Well equipped, slightly funky house at the end of the boardwalk with fabulous views of the ocean, sunrises and sunsets. Comes with resident iguana and geckos. The owner was very helpful.

My own private hide out

  • 4 of 5
I really want to write this review, but please promise not to book it on my NEXT vacation.... This is the spot you are looking for... Some of the things that come to mind....
Quaint, private, tree house, breezy, easy living... This is the vacation home that dreams of a quiet getaway are made of.... whether you stay a week or a month this place works. The house had two bedrooms set up and the third was used as an office, very easy to convert for your trip i am assuming. The kitchen is well stocked with new appliances and all the kitchenware you need down to the garlic press... The bathroom is spacious and very open. The dining area inside is new and modern, the floors tiled as you would expect living on a beach. The whole house is breezy and open. No need for AC as the ocean breeze is non stop and plentiful ceiling fans keep it nice and cool. It is out door living at a most comfortable slow pace. The entire house is surrounded by a deck, washer and lines worked fine. Hi speed WIFI.. cable TV with 100s of stations if you need to find that show. I was able to watch a few of my college teams games from the east coast...
The beach property is huge, the neighborhood is friendly and the PRIVATE beach is all yours.
Shopping is very convenient and hassle free. No crowds no lines and none of the modern distractions of suburbia !!
Your hosts are the most Friendly and the most courteous interesting people. They are just an email away or if your phone works in Belize just call them. Lou is in the states very much and was so accommodating as our flights got pretty goofed up.
Joshlin is local and met us at the house and also arranged a driver from the placenia airport. She is kind and a hard worker with a smile that did not quit. Sam the taxi man !!! he knows every one and is always on time... Be sure to ask for him.
Fly into Belize city and take tropic air to pLacenia village.
The peace and tranquility i sought here is still felt writing this a month later. I am going back to this property, so please dont book my week. ( a month if life lets me ).
Thank you Lou, Joshlin, and Sam.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place for those looking for a home away from home. We were travelling with our 2 young children so it was nice to have a spot that was quiet in the evenings but a very close walk to the village for groceries, restaurants, shopping etc. Lots of room to unpack and feel like you're at home. House was very clean, nice linens and plenty of towels provided. Washing machine was also available which was a huge bonus for us. And the wrap around deck is something to be seen - loved sitting there with the gorgeous view of the ocean and the beach all around. It really is a wonderful place, we would recommend this house to anyone looking for their own private oasis. The owner is also a wonderful person who was around to answer any questions that we had.

From the Owner

This location is the best in the village. Close to all the action, but as private as you want to make it.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Placencia Airstrip at 2 Miles Nearest Motorway : Placencia Road at 0.25 Miles Car: not necessary

The wonderful thing about Placencia Village is you can be as high tech or laid-back as you want. There are computer repair services and internet connections or tranquil freedom from all the technology devices.

Placencia Beach House is located at the north end of the sidewalk, the world's narrowest road, in Placencia Village, within walking distance of all the restaurants, bars, and gift shops. The North end is quiet and private, but near the action. You can party all you want without a designated driver, or lie quietly in your hammock in complete privacy. The friendly villagers speak English and are always ready to lend a helping hand. Fitness training and yoga classes, as well as, spa services are available. You can explore the village on a bicycle or ride up the peninsula for lunch at Seine Bight or Maya Beach.

There are several full-service dive shops that cater to both the beginner and experienced diver. Instruction is available for certification at all levels.

Some choose to simply enjoy the snorkeling. The dozens of offshore cayes (pronounced keys) each have fringed reefs and the Belize Barrier Reef, 18 miles from Placencia, is second to none. Many of the wonders in tropical waters are only one foot below the surface.

Some claim that Placencia offers the world's best fly fishing. The fishing guides were born in Placencia and learned secrets from their fathers that have been passed down for generations. Besides catching bonefish, permit and tarpon, you can troll for kingfish and barracuda, or catch your own bait and simply hang out at the cayes with a drop line.

About 30 miles from Placencia, off the southern highway, is the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Reserve, the world's first reserve established to protect this endangered species. Don't expect to see a jaguar. but you can go river tubing, hike to the waterfalls at the top of Tiger Fern trail, or climb Victoria Peak, the highest peak in the Cockscomb!

A little further to the north on the Southern Highway, you can visit Mayflower Archaeological Reserve and hike to Antelope Falls or Bocawina Falls, or arrange with Bocawina Adventure Tours to go zip-lining through the canopy forest or repelling down the water falls.

To the south, on the Southern Highway, you can visit the archaeological ruins of Nimli Punit and Lubaantun. During the same day, you can take in the massive cave at Blue Creek Village where Maya artifacts were found by modern archaeologists.
