Escape from Winter
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
Super beach house
My own private hide out
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
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
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.
