Luxurious The Beach Villa at Cocoplum represents one of the finest accommodation options available on the Placencia Peninsula. Nestled in the lush environs of the Cocoplum Residential Community, the Beach Villa offers travellers a truly unique blend of privacy, luxury and accessibility to the area’s many attractions.
Private Fronting on a mile of secluded Caribbean beach, each bedroom has its own entrance, making it ideal for people who wish to share their Belize adventure, but who also value their private space. The master bedroom is perched above the living/dining area and boasts a stunning view of the sea and nearby cayes from its spacious veranda. The two guest bedrooms are actually larger than the master and boast oversized tub showers as well as one of a kind outside showers.
Sustainable and Safe All three rooms surround the inviting waters of the villa’s swimming pool. The Beach Villa sports the best in Belizean hardwoods, including black poisonwood bedroom floors, mahogany cabinets, and deck made from sapodilla – the tree tapped for chewing gum. The kitchen area features granite counter tops, and comes complete with all appliances and utensils to provide for a carefree luxury holiday. The adjacent living area features a 32” flat screen LCD tv with 105 channel cable and wireless internet. Hot water for the villa is generated using a large capacity solar heating system. The 224 acre community employs its own 24 hour security staff.
Location, location, location Cocoplum is a ten minute drive from the Placencia airstrip, and is conveniently positioned between the laid back bustle of the village and the more upscale eateries of the northern peninsula. We provide free transfers to and from the airport and are more than happy to arrange a car rental or taxi for your forays into the village or one of the nearby fine dining establishments.
Adventure Land and sea adventures abound on the peninsula and it is our pleasure to connect our guests with the best the country has to offer. This includes world class SCUBA diving, snorkelling and fishing, invigorating hiking and tubing at nearby national parks as well as the exploration of thousand year old cities of the ancient Maya.
Personalized Service We know that when it comes to rental homes there is a wide selection. What makes this home special is that the level of personalized service matches the physical quality of the Beach Villa. Your host is not a hired caretaker; he is a resident and principal of the development where the home is located. Think of him as concierge and good neighbor rolled into one.

Cocoplum is a lushly landscaped, secure and tranquil neighborhood nestled between the fine dining of Maya Beach and the laid back bustle of the villages of Seine Bight and Placencia. The Placencia peninsula itself straddles two worlds: to the east lies the world's second largest barrier reef and all of the wonder it possesses both above and below the waves. Head west and you will find the Maya Mountains and surrounding rainforest, beckoning travelers to lose themselves in the mystery of a time forgotten. The peninsula is an attraction in itself, boasting some of the best meals the country has to offer, a genuinely friendly and laid back populace, and beaches that are not overcrowded.
Year Purchased: 2011
About: In December 1973 Stewart Krohn had just finished his third semester at University of Michigan Law School and figured it was time for a well deserved vacation. He booked a seven day sailing charter on a 50 foot locally built “yacht” based in the remote fishing village of Placencia in British Honduras. When that memorable week of fishing, diving and cruising the barrier reef was over the captain said “My first mate is leaving to go lobster fishing. Would you like the job?” The 23 year old immediately said yes before his brain could even begin to process the ramifications. Close to 40 years later Krohn is still on a leave of absence, having managed to acquire a family, a fascinating career in journalism and adopted country in the interim. The beach villa at Cocoplum is a prototype home that is part of a larger residential/resort venture being developed by Krohn and local partners. He maintains a permanent residence just around the corner from the beach villa and his two grown sons, Adam and Aaron, both work for the company.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The Beach Villa is a beautiful home by any standard, and features like the outdoor showers and amazing local hardwood finishes give it plenty of extra wow factor. However, the old adage 'location, location, location' holds very true here, and places the Beach Villa in a league of its own. Being in a home in Cocoplum is very different than being in one found right on the main highway. Traffic and noise here are minimal, and privacy and security are held in high regard by our 19 staff members. The difference here is immediately recognizable once you step onto the grounds. We look forward to the possibility of hosting you here and showing you an amazing time here in Belize.
