"We had an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable week at Barnacle Bills. We spent most of our time eating, drinking and hanging out under our very own beach huts. Some great restaurants, bars and a bowling alley within walking distance. The way the bungalos are built make for a perfect breeze flowing through the house. Not to mention waking up to the gorgeous sunrise. We enjoyed our daily morning coffees chatting with Bill. Bill and Adriane were very helpful hosts and we hope to go back!"

"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!"

"Could not have been better. Karen and staff helpful and friendly. Swam each day off pier. Kayaks were fun and when we when we traveled way to far (all the way into town!) Karen sent the truck to pick us up. Safe. Secure.
Tons of fun. 5 adults and we had tons of space and lots to do and see. Local food good and safe to eat. Women selling fresh bread in the evening in town--sweet bread the best. Fruit and veggie truck comes outside gate each Thurs afternoon with bargain prices. Watch the sunrise each am and wondered across the street to watch sunset in the evening. Belize Zoo very fun stop. Fish market in town is hidden so ask locals.
"John the Bakerman" is a must for local tarts and yummy banana bread. Donna at the pier in Placencia (I think it is Night Winds Tours) has good prices. Enjoy!"

"We arrived at the villa to find that the on-line pictures did not do the house justice. It was beautiful and so well kept. Stan met us to welcome us, show us around and to give some great advice on the surrounding area. We had a few days to prepare for a beach wedding and were most impressed when Albert and Francesca (house keepers) were so helpful and were more than willing to pitch in and help with some of the preparations. The wedding went without and hitch (having our own private beach was really a dream come true for our daughter). Then some time for fun in the sun. The beach was incredible; Albert raked it every day and Francesca just quietly went about her housekeeping duties. We loved waking up every morning and walking out into that warm sea breeze. Stan would stop by and offer suggestions for eating or other sites, which almost always met our expectations. The house had some great extras: beach chairs, kayaks, snorkeling gear, etc. which we were welcome to use. It was so nice to be able to watch the kids play from the house, the shaded veranda or on the beach with them. Albert, and his 2 super friendly dogs, was always around so safety was never a concern. I would not hesitate to stay at the Villa Ranguana again."
