Placencia Village condo description

Belize, Central America: Oceanfront Villa/Condo:

I invite you to enjoy my 2007 Caribbean water front villa in Placencia, Belize, Central America. This fully furnished, 2-bedroom 2 bath, one story villa sleeps 6 comfortably. All of the furniture is hand-made by local craftsman: mahogony bedroom furniture & wicker weaved right in front of our eyes! You will find everything you need for an extended weekend or weekly stay.

Several major airlines fly directly into Belize City (BZE). From BZE, you take a 35 minute flight at 1,500 feet right into our village of Placencia. Once in Placencia, you take a $8 cab ride, 5 minutes to our villa. In the village, you can walk to the many restaurants, Internet cafes, grocery store & market. You can rent a bike for the week or, you can hire a guide for the day. I have found that renting a car is a waste of money: They are often over priced, the 3.5 hour drive from Belize City to Placencia is half dirt road with poor signage, Belize rental cars are not up to US standards AND once you get to Placencia, you won't need it anyway.

In addition, I have a connection with the best fishing guide in the village, Alfred Williams, whose boat just won the 2010 LobsterFest! Alfred is a licensed Charter Boat Captain -- with his own boat, of course. Just tell Alfred what you want for dinner and he'll do his best to make sure that it's on the outdoor grill that night. He will even hand-catch lobster, if in season! For a day trip, you may consider a 18 mile boat ride to the private island of Ranguana. Alfred often drops the women & children on Ranguana and then take the guys out sport fishing for the day.

If you enjoy deep sea fishing, fly fishing for bonefish, spearfishing, snorkeling, diving or just relaxing on one of the many near-by, secluded islands, You/re going to LOVE Belize!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: This is my son, Will. He is 12 years old and he LOVES Placencia! He spends most of his time out of doors on the property looking for star fish, fiddler crabs, geckos & anything else that intrigues him! If he's not 'scouting', he's at the pool his local buddy, Ajay. Placencia is a relaxing place for ALL ages!

              Why the Owner Chose Placencia Village:
              Placncia ia a village of about 500 residents, and is unlike a tourist city in Mexico. There are no US chain restaurants, and the people are friendly. In addition, the worlds narrowest street is in Placencia....nicknamed 'the Sidewalk.' In short, it is a quaint, 2nd world, friendly village, at the end of a 23 mile dirt road, with the Caribbean on 3 sides. Truly a wonderful place. We drink the water piped in from the Maya Mountains, and eat the fish, conch, and lobster we catch within a few miles of the dock. The produce, and perishables are grown in the Cayo District, most by Mennonite farmers. Most homes, including ours, are furnished with mahogany and wicker, manufactured in Belize by hand. There is much to do, or nothing to do, your choice...did I mention they speak ENGLISH??

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              You can hire a fishing guide to snorkel, dive or fish. A tour can be arranged for pick-up in the village (hike to waterfall, cave tubing, zip lining, Mayan Ruin tours, etc) In other words: No need to rent a car
