Stunning Belize Townhouse with Rooftop Palapa on it's Own Island

Stunning Belize Townhouse with Rooftop Palapa on it's Own Island


Property Details

Updated: May 19, 2015
2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with stunning ocean view and dine in your own Palapa!

Congratulations—you’ve found the exact geographic spot in the world where all stress completely fizzles out. It simply can’t survive here!

Accessed only by boat, our three-story Belize townhome is surrounded by water on all sides. Here, the clear, Caribbean Sea meets a blue-green lagoon, where dolphins and manatees make frequent appearances and a pontoon boat waits to take you into Placencia Village.

After a quick boat ride across the lagoon, you’re just a 5-minute walk from some mouthwatering seafood restaurants, local live music and “Grand Slam” fishing excursions. In town, we also recommend exploring Placencia’s calm and enchanting waterways. Additionally, we provide kayaks and bicycles to our guests (accommodates four).


Perched on top of this three-story Belize townhome, under the cover of a palapa—an authentic thatched hut—you can watch the sun rise over the water. And set over the water, too. Our unique island geography makes it possible to see both!

Here at our townhome, we have another big plus, too: our wonderful, welcoming caretaker, Edwin. Many of our neighbors here in Placencia are jealous that we get to have Edwin all to ourselves—you truly won’t meet a kinder man in all of Belize.

With his caretaker’s cottage adjacent to the townhome complex, Edwin is available in case of emergencies or when you need advice on adventures or places to eat. He speaks perfect English and is happy to help.

At the ultra-safe townhome complex, there are just four neighboring units. We aren’t a sprawling, packed resort. This means our big, sparkling, private swimming pool is never, ever crowded. And we always keep it at a flawless 72 degrees. This matches Belize’s own perfect temperatures, which hover around 75-80 degrees year-round.

Our complex also has outdoor pool showers for rinsing away the chlorine and a grilling hut surrounded by fragrant tropical plants. There’s no better way to spend an evening than flipping some burgers in the sea air at sunset.


Inside the townhome, everything is cool, clean and modern.

The rooms are large and flooded with natural light.

In the kitchen, we’ve provided all the necessary cooking utensils, plus stainless steel appliances. There’s also a laundry room with a washer and dryer in the unit, so you can pack light and throw a load of laundry in at the end of the day at the beach.

The modern bathrooms include marble sinks and huge walk-in showers.

In addition to the rooftop palapa, with is shared with the neighboring townhome, you also have two separate verandas that are all yours—one accessed through the living room, and the other through one of the bedrooms.


The options are many.

Among our world-class offerings are unmatched sport fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling along the barrier reef. You can also charter a boat on the Monkey River, where howler monkeys play and crocodiles slink around and sun themselves on rock.

A little further afield, about an hour away, you will find the breathtaking Mayan ruins. Just a bit up the road from there, you can try your hand at ziplining, soaring above the forest floor and cascading waterfalls of Belize.

Or, you can just spend the day lounging around. There are many places to do just that—from the townhome’s pool to the sugary sand beach just a 5-minute walk away.


We’d love to have you in beautiful Placencia, Belize. There’s nowhere in the world like it.

About the Owner

I’m originally from Louisiana, but consider myself an Oregonian after 25 years here. I like the proximity of Belize to the US. It’s a quick escape from home into the quiet warmth of Belize. When I walked into Placencia Village I immediately fell in love with the remoteness, yet closeness to everything I would need while relaxing. I like to fish, snorkel and scuba dive. The warm, clear water in Belize makes all of these activities awesome. In fact, when I don’t want to get in a boat to fish, I can fish right off my boat dock outside my townhome. Even better, after I catch fresh fish off the dock, Edwin (the on-site caretaker) and I throw it on the grill. I bring the fish and he brings the mashed potatoes. Good thing we both enjoy BBQing and the outdoors.

I have a background as an owner-operator of hotels and restaurants. I’m a believer in superb customer service and a good product for a fair price. I have an excellent reputation where I live as both a hotel owner and restaurateur. I like to believe I serve the best Thai food locally. While in Belize, I get my fix for Thai food at Thai Friday in Placencia. Please say hello to SiriPohn for me – tell her Max sent you.

Amazing place and an amazing time

  • 5 of 5
3 friends and I booked 8 days for a trip to Belieze, trust me it was not enough and as soon as we saw this place that would be home for those 8 days we knew we should have booked for longer. The house was awesome and is in a great spot. If you like to have quiet nights at home but like to hit the beach and the bars then this is a perfect spot. everything is within a 5 to 10 min walk. great accommodation and a great property manager as well. we had the whole island so to speak to ourselves and did have to share the pool with a sole!. House has everything you need and is perfect for 2 couples. now if your are going with friends, then hopefully you can work out the sleeping situations. there is a rollout bed, but once we saw what it looked like.. we declined and made the best of the couch. All you need is in the house when it comes to cooking and such. water is good to drink and the place keeps nice and cool. Totally worth it!! we were the envy of the town! Construction was going on next to us as two more units were going up, but we hardly heard and thing and were not bothered by it at all. the little blue punt works and ferried us back an forth without having to bother the property manager very much. Kayaks worked great.. could do with one more as we had to borrow one for the 4 of us. all in all a great place and great time and a place to revisit.

We shared this gorgeous townhome with another couple. It was exactly what we expected, beautiful. The grounds are spotless and landscaping is gorgeous. The inside furnishings in great condition and has all the luxuries of home. Edwin the caregiver lives next door and is a wonderful man!! He is there to bring you back and forth on the pontoon but we enjoyed taking the little boat that is supplied for this unit across ourselves. It was perfect having the bicycles! We biked to town everyday for dinner. We would definetly recommend this place to friends!

The Perfect place in Placencia

  • 5 of 5
This townhouse was perfect for two couples. We all agreed we had the best place in Placencia. The island is beautifully landscaped and the townhouse is immaculate. There is sufficient air conditioning, the beds are very comfortable, bathrooms are large (both have double sinks). We loved the proximity to the village. We used the bikes, the kayaks, the fishing poles, the washer/dryer, etc.
A walk back to the condo after dinner (and Gelato) was a perfect evening stroll.
The pool was great for a little down time on the days we didn't go sightseeing.
The place is everything Max says it is, and Max gives you tons of information to help you enjoy your time in Placencia.
Edwin and his family go above and beyond to make sure you're comfortable.... and Always with a smile.
Thank you Max and Edwin for such an awesome relaxing vacation.

A beautiful place to relax

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on the property many years ago when it was a small resort with cabanas called "Soulshine" and it was much less developed. I confess I was a bit hesitant to stay here again because we were "trapped" a number of times on the other side of the lagoon while the caretaker was busy. This was never the case with Edwin or his family. Someone was always available to bring us across. They are wonderful people who keep the unit and the property pristine. I simply can't think of anything that could have made our stay more enjoyable other than for the construction next door to be completed! It is the perfect place to be picked up for sea excursions, fishing or snorkeling with many terrific places to eat close by. We loved having breakfast each day at Wendy's which Edwin recommended and as per his suggestion dinner at Rumfish was also outstanding. Our favorite meal was at Omar's but we really didn't have any food that was not exceptional. The kayaks and bikes got a good workout and they really made this place special. We used the BBQ for lobster one evening which was great and we tried to make it back for every sunset. The view here is the best in Placencia. And don't forget to go upstairs at night to see the stars, the sky here is amazing. Thank you Edwin and Emma for making our stay so perfect.

Lovely Townhome on the Lagoon in Placencia

  • 5 of 5
I'll give you the highs, lows, truths and myths.

Placencia Barracuda is absolutely gorgeous inside with beautifully furnishings. Both bedrooms have an individual bathroom with full-size washer and dryer in between, which is great. Beach towels and all linens are provided too and they are nice quality! The living room and kitchen on the main level are comfortable with fans, air conditioning and most of the amenities of home. The community BBQ grill was great, as it was covered so can be used regardless of weather in the day or night which is terrific. An exterior hanging clothes line would be nice in the unit, but I made do hanging swimsuits outside on the top deck or the either of the other two front patios. The rooftop pallapa has an incredible view just like the pictures show. I really like that the townhome has multiple points of entry, that was super convenient. It was wonderful that the rental unit came with new beach cruiser bicycles with locks and baskets. I unfortunately didn't get to use the kayaks due to weather, but that's super cool for a free amenity in this unit. Placencia is such a small village one can walk or ride the bikes almost everywhere. The beach is just down the road by bike or a walk (5 to 10 minutes depending upon which side of the beach you want to enter on). The townhome is SO close to all local restaurants and shops which was very convenient. A few restaurants will deliver to the lagoon (since it is so close) upon arrival or anytime during the stay. At night the unit is extremely peaceful. The wifi is excellent in the unit with wireless routers on each level.

The unit is on a private lagoon which requires "crossing" to get to the main road. It's fast and simple. This unit has a private paddle boat to cross or Edwin (on-site caretaker) will cross you in the pontoon boat. Edwin, his wife and family are wonderful!!!

While I was there in the low-season it rained almost daily, but it was warm rain. I couldn't change the weather and I still rode the bikes in the rain. The sand-flies come out after the rain. Be prepared with baby oil or essential oils which they don't like. The good news here on the lagoon side is the bugs aren't as prevalent as on the beach. I didn't use the pool due to the weather. At the moment, the developer is building new units next to the pool so it's a bit noisy, but once construction is complete it will be tranquility all the time 24/7.

Highly recommend!

We just returned from a trip to Belize during which we spent a few days at Max's condo in Placencia. The apartment is beautiful and pristine. It has everything one might need, including a washer and dryer which was extremely helpful travelling with three little kids! Edwin is wonderful and will help you with whatever you need. The location is within 10 mins walk to the village or a 5-minute bike ride. The bikes are on property and we used them every day. This is a wonderful place! Thank you Max and Edwin for a wonderful stay!!

From the Owner

Living in often rainy Oregon, I knew I wanted to purchase outside the US and near or on a beach. I looked at Thailand, Panama and Nicaragua initially. I happened upon Belize almost by accident, but perhaps it was really coincidence and meant to be. I immediately fell in love with the people and the country. Beyond falling in love with Belize, I liked that the national language is English which makes it easy to communicate and get around. The currency is also easy to convert. The exchange rate is a simple conversion of two-to-one (2:1) with the majority of businesses willing to take either US dollars or Belizian dollars. Placencia Pointe provides the type of seclusion that is lacking in our hectic western lives. It’s close enough to town for a refreshing, easy walk, yet secluded on a secure lagoon right on the sea. Additionally, I love that I can walk out the door and leave it wide open or unlocked without a worry. Yes, it’s that safe and private. And Edwin is the best!

From the Owner

I love that each unit is multi-level (three-story), without anyone above or below. The only thing above each unit is a covered rooftop palapa with an authentic thatched hut. The panoramic view from inside or the rooftop is breathtaking! It is serenely quiet by day, by night, at sunset or sunrise. I love the views from each veranda. Gorgeous and instantly relaxing!
