Property description

This elegant, private, and truly beautiful villa is set in a gorgeous tropical garden complete with large pool and two palapa docks right on the Caribbean Sea. The walled estate offers complete security, luxury, and privacy yet is but a short walk (5-8 minutes only) form the centre of Placencia Village with its many artisian shops, fantastic local and international restaurants and fun beach bars.

The interior space is the lower level of the Villa and is approximately 2,000 square feet and offers every comfort of home. There are two bedrooms and two large bathrooms, one with a beautiful outdoor shower complete with its own small private garden as well as large walk-in indoor shower. There is a fully equipped indoor kitchen complete with a gas range, a large refrigerator with an ice maker, blender, microwave oven, dishwasher and all other equipment necessary to produce a gourmet meal which can be enjoyed in the dining area. The lounge area is complete with all you need to enjoy a relaxing evening watching television (flat screen) or listening to music.The entire area is tastefully decorated with local art and crafts and is very well maintained. Of course it has central air conditioning, free wi-fi (Skype quality) and cable television for your comfort and enjoyment.

The garden and pool area is truly beautiful! There are many paths to explore to discover its lush foliage, bountiful flowers, including many orchids, numerous types of palms and flowering shrubs, climbing vines and even fruit trees. When swimming in the large salt water pool, gazing at the large palms and flowers surrounding it one feels as though they are truly in the Garden of Eden! There are several cushioned lounges and chairs in the pool area where you can choose to rest in either the sun or the shade. Near the pool area is also an outdoor kitchen complete with a new (2015) gas BBQ to prepare those more casual meals. There is a nearby eating area with its own fireplace and large mosaic table top, featuring what else, but starfish!

The palapa docks which go out several feet from the shore are perfect spots to enjoy the sea breezes and watch the sailboats in the harbour and the local boats, visiting yachts, and dolphins go by. There is also a rooftop deck area with its 360 degree views of the sea, the canal and the distant mountains and is the perfect spot to sip a drink and watch the most gorgeous sunsets the Caribbean has to offer!

All this comfort and luxury is an ideal place to spend a relaxing day or to come home to after a day in the pool or on Placencia's white sandy beaches, or on one of the many day trips, snorkeling, diving, hiking, or exploring nearby rain forests or Mayan ruins.

Bring your e-book for reading in your hammock, your hiking shoes for local tours, flip flops for dining out and your sweetheart for the best honeymoon, anytime, anywhere.



Keywords: Starfish Villa is a large, beautiful Mediterranean style villa with water on both sides of the property.

Complete privacy and security within a beautiful walled estate which is a short walking distance to the quaint and colourful Village with its many shops, beach bars, fantastic restaurants and Placencia's famous white sandy beaches .

The indoor space of the rental property is approximately 2,000 square feet. The grounds include a private beach area, two palapa docks, large pool with a waterfall, outdoor kitchen and dining areas, rooftop terrace with 180 degree views, set within a beautiful tropical garden.

The land and sea day excursions companies pick up and deliver our guests at the Villa's gates at no cost. We gladly pick up our guests at the Placencia airport and deliver them back there for their return flights. While vehicle rentals are available, the great majority of our guests do not rent one during their stay or, if they wish to do some independent exploring, they only rent a vehicle for a day or two. A considerable cost saving.

The property owners may be in residence during your visit, however there is always resident caretakers present on the property in a separate cottage ensuring your comfort and security.
