Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: I'm a professional biologist and enjoy watching and studying animals in their natural habitats. Belize particularly fascinates me with its biodiversity and abundance. I like being on the water, in the water and around the water. I've never owned a TV but love to read and listen to music. As a guest I will likely leave early and come back after dinner. As a host I will do my best to make you feel welcome, comfortable, and safe.

Why Placencia Village:
The house is owned by our family. We fell in love with Placencia and its people many years ago when it was just a tiny fishing village at the end of a very long bumpy dirt road. Although it has grown, it is still charming and people still friendly. It is a wonderful place to relax, write, and offers a good base from which to launch Belizean or Latin American adventures (e.g., Tikal in Guatemala) After living in Alaska for 30 years, the long dark winters have lost their charm for me, and I look forward to seeing my Belizean family every year and spending time in the wonderful waters there. We chose this property because it had a terrific roof view and although it had been rather neglected, we saw potential. It had also survived one terrible hurricane and being on the lagoon side offered a safe boat harbor in contrast to the beach properties. It's location was ideal, close to the village but in a quiet private area with water bordering both the front and back of the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The view from the roof is wonderful, you can see across the lagoon all the way to the jaguar reserve (Cockscomb mountains) and on a clear day to the Guatemalan and Honduran mountains. I enjoy waking up to the tropical birds calling, and I always make sure to share my papaya skins with the resident iguanas that live in the big tree by the dock. They are shy but will get used to you especially if you feed them regularly. Its fun to see how many you can find in the area, I have counted up to 11.
