Comfortable and Very Easy on the Eyes The 2 bedroom Beach Villa takes the vacation rental experience to a new level. Located on the beach in the lush yet wildly civilized Cocoplum Residential Community, the 2 bedroom Beach Villa offers our guests a truly unique locale to call home while in Belize. A folding glass door offers unparalleled views of the beach and nearby cayes, and opens onto a very large deck that surrounds the pool. The spacious living room is the perfect place to spend an evening having drinks around the granite topped bar while deciding whether to eat dinner inside or out on the deck.
Toes in the Sand and not a Care in the World The Beach Villa is located on a mile of secluded Caribbean beach. The only thing between you and the sea are a few seagrape and palm trees and a little over 100 feet of sandy beach. Even though all beaches in Belize are accessible to the general public, you may see 6-7 people walk by in the course of a day. So break out a kayak, go for a swim, or just relax with something cold in your hand. And don't worry. The 224 acre community employs its own 24 hour security staff for your peace of mind.
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.
A deposit of 25% of the total cost of the rental is needed to confirm a booking, with the balance due 45 days prior to arrival. Payment can be made either via credit card (VISA, Mastercard, Discover), or by direct deposit.
Travel with confidence
Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.
Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection, Carefree Rental Guarantee, and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.
Protect your payments in case you need to cancel.
Guarantee the rental meets your expectations.
Ensure you're prepared in case of accidental damage.
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: 2013
About the owner: 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.
