'I know I don't get there often But God knows I surely try It's a magic kind of medicine That no doctor can prescribe'
'But there's this One Particular Harbour Sheltered from the wind Where the children play on the shore each day And all are safe within' Jimmy Buffet
'One Particular Harbour' is an ideal vacation getaway for couples, families or small groups. This villa is located among a stretch of private beach homes in the quiet Plantation area on the Placencia peninsula. The home has convenient “lock-out” features allowing guests to rent as much or as little space as meets their needs. We will rent to only one group at a time so our guests will enjoy their privacy and we prefer to rent the entire home. The home is composed of three suites. The upper level living area is the 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' suite. It is composed of a master bedroom, full gourmet kitchen, living room, private bath with an open shower and two sinks. Vaulted mahogany ceilings and hardwood floors provide beauty and comfort. A covered 400 sq. ft. veranda runs the length of the home and provides views of the ocean from the deck and inside of the home.The living room has a comfortable convertible couch (from the states) allowing two more sleeping accommodations. Enjoy your breakfast on the porch watching the sunrise as the sea breeze gently cools you. The house is designed to allow the ocean breeze access to the entire house as the outside living space blends with interior living area. Two AC units cool the unit for your comfort. Ceiling fans throughout the home keep the air fresh. The ground floor offers two suites. 'Margaritaville' and 'Fins Left' Margaritaville has a queen bed suite along with well stocked kitchen and private bath. It sleeps two and is perfect for that 'right on the beach' feeling. The kitchen allows guests on the ground floor to have access to all amenities without venturing upstairs. 'Fins Left' has a nice living space and queen size bed and is identical except for the kitchen. The spaces connect through lockable doors into the kitchen for that early morning coffee or light night 'nightcap'. Both units are air conditioned and open onto a 800 sq. ft. covered veranda with pool. The swimming pool is perfect size to keep you cool while you enjoy the view of the ocean. Enjoy the decks and pool veranda to swim or sunbathe. You only have to venture a few steps in the white sand to your own private beach complete with chairs, hammock and covered palapa. Enjoy meals in the air conditioned home or out on the deck. Gas barbecue provided. There is an observation deck which allows simultaneous views of the sea and lagoon. This spot is perfect for breakfast coffee and an evening 'sundowner'. The observation deck provides truly breath taking views. Maid service and in house cooks are available. The property caretaker lives across the street. The home is unique in that it has Caribbean beachfront as well as shorefront on the scenic Placencia lagoon. This offers diverse recreational options including kayaking and fishing. Two fishing poles come with the house. The villa is less than 15 minutes form the Placencia airport. There are several transportation rental options; cars, SUV’s, golf carts and scooters. Lost Reef Resort Riversdale is 2 miles to the north and has a nice restaurant, bar and pool scene. The Maya Beach community is 8 minutes south with a grocery store and a variety of restaurants, bars and even a bowling alley.The Maya Beach Hotel has excellent cuisine and a wonderful atmosphere. Other eateries provide plenty of variety.The Placencia Village is 20 minutes from the house.

The Placencia peninsula is 16 miles long, beach on one side and lagoon on the other. This property has both. Plenty of things to do.
Why Plantation: We built ' One Particular Harbour' because this is our special 'Happy Place'. Placencia is a great vacation destination and our home is a wonderful way to enjoy this enchanted place. Once we arrive our blood pressure drops, our speech slows, cell phones disappear and we become one with the sea and our surroundings. The mellow 'non touristy' atmosphere of Placencia melds a unique culture with great restaurants and nightlife. No 'megaships' dock here. Action and adventure from jungle lodges, deep sea fishing and diving can challenge you or read a book on the beach in your hammock.
Life is slow, people smile, no one is mad, the beer is cold and rum is flavorful!
