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

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

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 26, 2014
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).

WHY OUR PLACENCIA TOWNHOME?

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.

STEP INSIDE

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.

WHAT TO DO IN PLACENCIA

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.

COME AND SEE US!

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.

Excellent Condo In Placencia

  • 5 of 5
This condo was as advertised and more. The condo is beautifully appointed with modern kitchen appliances, utensils, glasses/plates, etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nicely decorated and there is an air conditioning unit in every room. The smaller bedroom was the coolest room, while the other rooms were comfortable. The care taker, Edwin, and his family is very nice and can provide extremely helpful information regarding Placencia and other parts of Belize.

I would recommend Pamela Solomon and her husband at Rumfish y vino to provision the condo. They coordinate with Edwin to ensure your food is prepared and awaiting your arrival.

We rented this condo for a week but the internet only worked for 1 and 1/2 days, which wasn't a big deal for us because we were usually out exploring Belize but be forewarned that internet service may be an issue if you're traveling with teenagers.

The condo also comes with a cell phone, which was very useful when trying to contact Edwin to coordinate your departures and arrivals via the pontoon boat that takes you across the small lagoon. It's also useful if you have to contact restaurants or other Belizean businesses.

The condo has parking, if you choose to rent a car or golf cart. This is very nice as well since we rented a car to explore areas outside of Placencia.

Max, the owner, and Edwin are great and very helpful. If rent this condo you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Dowdy -

Thank you for taking the time to write a thorough review. This feedback is helpful to me as an owner as well as to other future guests. Edwin and I pride ourselves on excellent service and accommodations.

I'm delighted to hear the local mobile phone I provide for my guests was helpful to you during your recent stay. Thank you for your kind words about our fabulous on-site caretaker, Edwin. Placencia Pointe residents and guests are extremely fortunate to have him and his family right there, as a wealth of knowledge and so very kind.

I want to specifically address the internet issue you mentioned. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Without your honest feedback I would not have known there was a glitch in the connectivity. Edwin immediately contacted the local technology specialist who has already resolved the connectivity issue. Beyond this, I am personally flying down to Belize next week. At this time, I will bring and install a second Apple Airporter Extreme so the townhouse will have two options for internet wi-fi connection.

Thank you for mentioning my friends, Pamela and John, the owners of Rum Fish. Their restaurant is so conveniently located in Placencia. They are there to be of service to the local community and visitors always serving great food at Rum Fish.

Again, thank you for staying at Placencia Pointe and thank you for your review. I look forward to welcoming you, your friends or family in the future.

Beautiful Condo

  • 4 of 5
We were greeted by Edwin, the caretaker. He was always ready to help us in any way he could. The condo was beautiful inside and outside. We enjoyed the palapa upstairs and the beautiful swimming pool outside. It was a short walk to town from the condo. It is probably one of the nicest accommodations in Placencia. You can see the lagoon and the ocean from the top floor palapa. It faces a canal (they call it a channel). Each time you come home, Edwin brings over a boat to pick you up. It is between the ocean and the lagoon but you can't get to the ocean because other condos are on that side. You can walk out to the lagoon, there is a boat dock just past the condos, but there is no ladder to get back in if you want to swim. That was our only disappointment.

Brand new, clean, with a pool and personal attention. What more an you ask for.

  • 5 of 5
My wife, my 90 year old mother and myself recently spent 4 days at this beautiful condo, and I can't say enough about the quality of the facilities or the personal services provided by Edwin, the caretaker. The condo is brand new with a large pool on site. As the condo is located on an the island, you need to take the small boat across the canal to go to town or to return home, but this does not create a problem as Edwin is always quickly available to shuttle you. I would recommend having Edwin set up a Monkey River tour with Percy, the Howler King. Percy's knowledge of the plants and animals in the jungle is unbelievable. There are plenty of good restaurants located within 5 minutes, and the Tipsy Tuna has a nice happy hour right on the beach. Make sure you get directions to the condo before you arrive for the first time.

hidden piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5
I have always heard my friends talk about how naturally beautiful Belize is but I had no idea what to expect from this country nor the people who call it home. I was blessed with the opportunity to stay in Placencia village which is located on a main peninsula of the country. In my opinion, there is no better option as far as places to spend time as it's surrounded by natural beauty yet close enough to shopping accomodations to ensure your stay is pleasant and to assist with whatever you might have forgotten while packing. The actual Placencia village is unbelievable in splendor and comfortable luxury. The caretaker Edwin is beyond hospitable and all requests for assistance are met promptly and resolved with a smile and tropical charm. For the outdoor adventurists there are boundless opportunities to fish or kayak. for those like me that just need a break from a chaotic work schedule, I couldn't think of a more beautiful atmosphere to kick off your sandals and relax in a land of beauty. Tons of local activities for those with children as well. Belize and Placencia Village..... I cannot see you soon enough. You will be consuming my thoughts until next time.

Traveling with teen kids, this place was perfect. Close to town and restaurants, and right on the water. Very contemporary interior, comfortable without being stuffy. We will return again next year Max! Thanks for sharing your home with the family.

TotallY awesome!

  • 5 of 5
I stay for just a short while, but was very impressed with the property, very upscale and comfortable and the views were just fabulous.

The beach walks were very relaxing, and the water very beautiful. The fishing was the best!

Hats off to Edwin (the caretaker) was superb, he was able to help me out with everything I needed.

Next time I stay, will have to check out the night life.

Location

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!

Amenities

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!
