Private 1-br home with ocean views from every room and direct beach access.
Set in a groomed tropical lot, the Joya del Mar beachfront house boasts excellent sunrise views over the Caribbean. It's a private house with three options for rental; the Main unit being a large 1-bedroom King unit with a full kitchen and living room. But who needs the kitchen, as you'll be about 200 feet from the Maya Beach Hotel Bistro which has been awarded (more than once) the best restaurant in the whole country of Belize.
Use this private home as your base for exploring the area, whether it be by land or sea. The hotel staff next door offer concierge-type services to help you book activities like diving or snorkeling the Belize Barrier Reef, fishing, cave tubing, ziplining, jungle tours, cultural and culinary tours.
The house is stocked with practical amenities and as it had been a full-time residence at one point, it has the homey touch of its owners.
The King bedroom opens directly to the verandah and beach. So does the living room, which is decorated in tropical colors and furnished with easy-to-live-in sofa and chairs.
In the mood to cook? The kitchen has plenty of workspace and a fridge big enough to stock a week's worth of groceries.
Not in the mood to cook? No worries -- the award-winning yet casual Maya Beach Hotel Bistro is just 200 feet away, and the friendly restaurant staff will even bring meals to your room if you like.
Speaking of the Maya Beach Hotel staff, you'll also find a courteous team of Front Desk personnel who can give you advice about travel and tours around Belize. They have good working relationships with all the Placencia-area tour operators so booking your snorkeling, diving, fishing, ruins, river or jungle tours is a piece of cake.
(Did someone say cake? Don't miss desserts at the Bistro!) For more info about the hotel and restaurant, visit http://www.mayabeachhotel.com or the Facebook pages for Maya Beach Hotel and Maya Beach Hotel Bistro.
Finally, if the Main level of the house is not available, don't forget there are two other units in the house that are available for rent. One is the small 'Junior' unit great for backpackers, and the other is the 'Upper' suite that has one queen bed, a small kitchenette and a really big balcony looking over the beach.
Let us show you the best of Belizean hospitality while you relax in your private beach house.
