"We have enjoyed our stay in the master suite of Beachfront Suites so much these past 2-1/2 weeks (Feb.-Mar. 2015). We enjoyed trips to Placencia Village, to shop at market stalls, and just for looking around; a trip for snorkeling to Laughing Bird Caye; several meals at Maya Beach Bistro (very good); a visit to the Spice Farm down near Indian Creek (very interesting, especially for my husband who cooks with all those spices), and, today, a trip back to Maya Center for a cacao farm tour and chocolate-making adventure (wonderful!). But it has always been good to come back "home" at the end of our days, to relax in the comfort of this lovely abode. We have even made friends with a couple of the neighborhood dogs (one dark, probably older, with white eyebrows and maybe some arthritis; the other blond with a black muzzle and also some arthritis -- both are sweethearts), and have given them a little of the doggie kibble underneath the island sink in the kitchen, as well as a little fresh water. While they seemed grateful for the food and water, they seemed to want human love and contact even more -- we did not hold back!
The people of Belize that we have encountered have been friendly, helpful, and genuine, traits that are elusive at best in our own fast-pace culture. Luselie has checked in with us several times, making sure we have everything we need -- she's a gem.
Thank you for providing such a comfortable and lovely home-away-from-home for us!"

"We stayed at the Harbour Hideaway for four nights the first week in June. Jim picked us up at the airport and gave us a tour of the small town of Placencia. The pictures of the studio apt don't do it justice. It's much larger with a great view of the dock and canal behind it. The property is full of beautiful landscaping with a large mango tree which was full of ready to eat mango's. Included in the rental were bikes, which is all you need for transportation, and kayaks we used every day to explore the canals and mangroves. The view from the 3rd story lookout is spectacular! Cindy worked most of the time but Jim was available for anything we needed. We also learned a lot about the area, over a few beers, and the difficulties of building a home in a different country. We highly recommend the Harbour Hideaway and want to thank Jim & Cindy for the great time. S&C"

"My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 lovely nights in mid-October at this wonderful property. It has an excellent location on a very quiet street with canal access and lagoon/mountain views. Having access to bikes was a huge plus as we were able to navigate the village with those. Golf cart rentals are nearby is biking is not your thing. The property owner, Carol, was quick to respond and incredibly patient with my numerous questions. She had many great suggestions and is very knowledgeable on the area. Her neighbors, Jim and Cindy, are equally as wonderful and even shuttled us to and from the airport and drove us around the village upon arrival to familiarize us with the area. The property itself was comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything we needed. We would stay in the house again, and hope to when we return to Belize. The village itself is very welcoming. We found ourselves completely relaxed not long after our arrival. This property also has a roof top Palapa which provides great views of the sunset and we also found it perfect for bird watching while sipping a Belikin. The description of the property/area are accurate with what you get. I can't say enough about the friendliness of everyone we encountered.
My only suggestion is to spend more than the 3 days we did, as that is just not enough time to explore all you can from Placencia Village.
While there be sure to try the Rum Fish grill for dinner & Tuitti Fruity for dessert. Delicious!!
Thank you Carol for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!!!"

"Starfish Villa is 100% paradise inside the paradise of Placencia. The villa is perfect for two, two couples, or a family with kids old enough to enjoy the full experience. From the private pool, the grounds inclusive of the outdoor kitchen, to the two private palapas and the villa itself are all the very best Placencia has to offer. Add to that the owners (Paul and Gail) that are not only courteous and happy, but they go out of their way to help you book any excursion, to spa treatments, to reservations at any restaurant, and paradise is truly found. The town of Placencia is perfect for the adventureous tourist whether you love to dive/snorkel, explore Monkey River with Percy, or visit ancient caves and the Mayan ruins. The town, a bit quaint, is a wonderful escape from the traditional resort town as it is a mixture of the wonderful people of Belize to fine dining restaurants, to two of the greatest bars (Barefoot Bar and Tipsy Bar) ever. All of this and the price is as reasonable as you will ever find. If I could give more than five stars to this property, I would."
