  • The best family vacation ever!

    "HI, We were in Belize for 2 weeks in August we had the best time ever. Villa is just amazing fully equipped and beautiful. Swimming pool was just refreshing and having the palapa with the hammock was my highlight of the trip...just relaxing. My 2 girls 9 and 12 just loved hanging out in the pool and making sand castles on our private beach that was cleaned up every day. Listening to the waves at night from the bedroom was my god soooo relaxing :) I really recommend taking Alrin for a tour guide we did Monkey River and Snorkeling/fishing both days were just perfect. We did some hiking, visited chocolate and banana plantation, zipline, cave tubing, ATM cave... Belize was just the perfect family vacation. August was a perfect month beautiful weather and less tourist! Food in Belize is just WOW!!! Thank you Yvonne and David for your recommendations and renting out your Villa this was the best family trip ever!"

  • Better than the pictures!

    "We have used VRBO many times. Sometimes you don't quite get what you were expecting. However, this place was the real deal. Awesome views, crystal clear pool, cold A/C, clean comfy house and an amazing palapa on the lagoon. We had coffee on the balcony every morning and fished from the dock every night. Dolphins and manatees cruised by but we never saw the famous Croc. Dan was helpful and easy to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend a week. There are many beaches, bars and restaurants within a 15 minute walk. Maya Bistro and Mango's were by far the best. We decided to rent a golf cart and it came in quite handy. We cruised the entire peninsula in slow motion and it was so relaxing. The roads felt very safe. We were able to enjoy some of the Placencia night life without always having to call a taxi. The only problem we had was booking tours. The giude that was recommended (Alrin) was a complete joke. We'd book a fishing trip with him, he'd call at the lat minute to cancel and leave us hanging with no other options. We would run across the street to The Green Parrot and Leo would squeeze us on a trip or tour last minute. I'd recommend leaving Alrin out of the picture and just let Leo set things up for you. Alrin acually had the nerve to call me for the third day in a row, yell at me and cancel again. I know we had a few windy days that weren't good for reef fishing, but he could have taken us fishing on the lagoon or to the Monkey River. We ended up having his brother Efar take us on the Monkey River tour and I think that really pissed him off. But hey, I'm not going to force you to take my money... there are plenty of other awesome guides that work hard to please their clients. Even though we never got to fish on the reef, the trip was a great success. The snorkeling out there was phenomenal. Go slow and enjoy!"

  • Spring Breakers!

    "We got back last night from our week in Belize. We had a lovely time in Placencia! We drove down from Belize City and arrived at Casa Nettuno, after a 3.5 hour drive. Ignacio was there to greet us and show us the house and provide the keys. We ate dinner that first night at Wendy's in the village and loved our meal! Other places that we ate dinner at included Rumfish y vino, Habanero's in Robert's Grove resort (very tasty mexican dinner), the Cozy Corner (we also had a great beachside breakfast there one morning!) Jennifer cooked chicken and beans and rice for our dinner one night. The last night there, we made our own dinner w/ fresh caught fish that day from John and Chris's fishing trip. Some great lunches that we had were at Dawn's Grill and Go (really liked that place, and we met the owner Dawn who was lovely!), and another great lunch at Sweet Mama's in Robert's Grove resort, which was delicious. We ate lunch at DeTatch one day which was just so-so. We probably would not recommend DeTatch. Brenda's place at the dock was bustling and she provided us with fresh-from-the-oven, homemade macaroons, and lunch more than one day. John the Baker Man also provided us with yummy baked treats (cinnamon rolls and coconut tarts), as did the Above Grounds Coffee Shop (I loved the fresh juice blend for breakfast at Above Ground and the fresh breakfast doughnuts and muffins we had there!) We did a day of snorkeling through Splash, out to Gladden Spit to try to spot some whale sharks (they eluded us that day!) The sea was a bit choppy for snorkeling, but the lunch served onboard and the boat crew were all wonderful. We had a nice time swimming and relaxing in between snorkeling. Not sure it was really worth the price of $200 per person, especially since we did not see any whale sharks and did not see a really big variety of fish while snorkeling. In truth, both my son and I got a bit seasick. My husband really enjoyed his time on the water. Another day we did a Monkey River tour set up by Robert's Grove that was actually a lot of fun for us. We enjoyed talking with our guide,Terry, who lives in the Monkey River village and we loved the simple but delicious lunch served at the village restaurant. We loved the walk in the rainforest and saw MANY howler monkeys while on the hike. The price for the tour seemed like a real bargain for the amount of enjoyment we got out of it. We loved the house and its beach. Ignacio and Jennifer were both wonderful. We will come back!"

  • Belize is UnBelizeable

    "Our stay at Harbour Hideaway was the best. Jim and Cindy made us feel like family. Their studio was perfect for what we needed. They had everything: beach towels, kayaks and they even borrowed an extra bike from a friend so our whole family could have one. They were very thoughtful. It is in a great location and it is very clean. Our vacation will be remember for always."
