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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Stayed six weeks, the condo was very nice. We got to know the property manager and family, they are the best. The Belizesian people are very nice. Our neighbors went fishing got a lot of lobster and we bbq it, so wonderful.We walked to a local bar on the water, listed to live music. Talk to some snow birds from Canada, some have built their houses here and some of them sail and moor their boats there,they have so much fun also.
