Property description

Nestled peacefully between the Caribbean Sea and the Placencia Lagoon is the jewel of Maya Beach; Mi Sastun. This tropical haven will have a healing and rejuvenating effect on all who stay here. This charming house offers many amenities, such as east and west verandas, air conditioning, 32'television/100+channels, ceiling fans, fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms(2 queen size, two singles), spacious living/dining area and lush tropical landscaping. All this and it's only a 60 second walk to the sea. Lagoon access is a short kayak ride from the house. This house is not listed as beachfront, but just across the street from the beach. First class dining is also close at hand. The Maya Beach Bistro and the Green Parrot Beach Houses are only a brief walk away. There is a grocery store, several bars, and even a bowling alley in Maya Beach. Land and sea tours can be arranged through the Green Parrot Beach Houses. The manager, Leo Ramirez, and his friendly staff can see to your every need.

Just a short kayak ride from the beach, you will find False Caye. This small island is surrounded by coral heads, sea fans, many tropical fish and an occasional manatee will swim past. All you will need is a mask and snorkel to enjoy these colorful sights.

Just six miles to the south, is the village of Placencia. A bustling little town, filled with restaurants, bars, gift shops, grocery stores, banks(ATM) and friendly locals. There is a bus service and taxis to take you to and from Placencia. Rental cars are also available in the village.
Whether you are into reef trips, Mayan ruins, cave tours, bird and wildlife watching, zip lining or just walking the miles of white sand beaches, you will find it all at Mi Sastun.

Car: Not Necessary

Maya Beach is a 'laid back' little village in southern Belize. The pace slows down, as you step from the plane into a tropical paradise. No traffic jams, no clocks, just endless days on the beach or in a hammock sipping a cocktail or a local beer. Welcome to the Tropics, at their finest.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: I traveled extensively, in search of the 'right place'. Boating to Belize from Honduras, I saw Placencia on the horizon. Magic!! Coming ashore, I knew my search was over. As close to paradise as I had ever been, I was taken in. I began looking at properties and found a double lot in Maya Beach and Mi Sastun would soon become a reality. I am still working in the U.S., but try to get 'home' every two to three months. I have enjoyed this beautiful home since 2005 and have decided to share it with some of the lucky folks who find themselves in southern Belize. Come, stay, enjoy. Smitty

Why Maya Beach:
This property was where I wanted to be; close to the sea and the lagoon. Accessibility to all my needs. Great neighbors, good friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I feel the unique benefits of this home have to do with its location on the peninsula. You can take advantage of the proximity of the ocean for fishing, diving, snorkeling or beachcombing. Also, the access to the lagoon exposes you to some of the best fishing Belize has to offer. Here you will find snook, tarpon, jacks, Jewfish etc. Each one offers an exciting adventure and a tasty dinner that evening.
