Property description

Our 'Garden View' condo #5A offers all the wonderful beachfront, poolside amenities of Los Porticos Villas property at a more visitor friendly cost. 310 ft of beautiful barefoot Caribbean beach! There are 2 clean and refreshing pools but guests staying in villa 5A only has access to the main pool.

Flexible rental configurations are available for up to 4 guests. # 5A can rent as a generous 2 bedroom/2bath unit, or as a 1 bdrm/1bath, or as a studio w/ bath and pocket kitchen, depending on your needs. Rates are scaled accordingly.

We are 3 blocks from Splash Dive Shop, with all new equipment, premises, boats, and a personable staff. Consider to get you PADI SCUBA Open Water Certification while you stay with us. Seahorse Dive Shop has quoted a modest cost for the PADI course with dives.

We are close to the airport, and the township of Placencia. Check out Wendy's, The Tipsey Tuna Bar and Grill, the volley ball court, Da' 'Tatch, The Barefoot Bar, Rumfish, Maya Beach Hotel, Mango's and other good eating establishments. Rent a Kayak, or take a guided tour on the sea, or in the lagoon. Check out pristine islands, or visit the howler monkeys up the Monkey River. Prospect for an affordable Caribbean winter home along 18 miles of Caribbean Seafront and lagoon front. Kayak, cycle, or walk the beach to town. Life is rich and beautiful in Placencia, and at Los Porticos Villas.

Since you are on the mainland, you can reach the Mayan Ruins, the Belize Zoo, or the Jaguar Preserve by car. Go cave tubing or Zip Lining. Spend a couple of nights in the jungle or in the hills. Check out Belize from Placencia. You may want to visit again.

Car: Not Necessary

Close to Placencia Town, next to the Caribbean, close to the airport, steps to the lagoon, three blocks to Splash Dive Shop. A reasonable drive to many inland activities, that would require air or water taxi transit from the keys and islands, - Placencia is the place to be! We recently enjoyed our trip to the Belize Zoo,

Spanish Lookout, and an overnight stay in St. Ignacio, close to Mayan Ruins at the Guatemala Border. Doctors make house calls. Clinic at Independence, across the

lagoon.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We have traveled in Mexico and the Caribbean for 5 years, and we were immediately impressed with the warmth and friendly atmosphere at Placencia Village, and particularly by the developer manager,and residents we met at this property. Friendliness, warmth and civility are notable qualities of all the people we have met in this small piece of paradise on earth, Placencia, Belize.

Why Placencia Village:
Los Porticos Villas, is a new development built to high standards, on a gorgeous strip of beach. LPV is neither too close, nor too far from an amazing little town. The amenities in the unit and on the property are second to none, Our unit #5A is just a few steps further to the beach and to the pool than others on this site. But that made it affordable to us, and we hope to you as well. You will not regret a visit to Belize, or Los Porticos Villas. And like we snowbirds from B.C., you might easily decide to become regulars, as so many others are doing.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There is abundant opportunity to explore the rest of Belize by air, water, and land from Placencia township. But once you get to Placencia, you may not want to travel as much as you think. There is plenty to do right there, or in town, or on convenient day trips with excellent guides, who are proud to show off Belize. People we have met are gentle, civil, and polite to one another and to visitors. The climate is second to none, and the Caribbean Sea is the clincher. We are happy to become part time Belizeans, and to share our property experience with you.
