  • Beautiful location

    "This is lovely main floor condo unit located in the centre of the complex. The pool was 30 steps away and the ocean was about 60 steps. The unit is very spacious and very nicely decorated. We were with another couple and found the unit plenty big for all of us. Lots of room in the dining area and in the living room. Very nice covered veranda had a table with six chairs along with two lounge chairs. Nice pool with a little in water sit up bar area. You can walk out on to the beach and walk all the way to downtown Placencia, which is shorter than using the road and whole lot cooler. You need some form of transportation to get into Placencia as it is at least a mile away. Golf cart rentals are available. We had a car rental as we drove in from Belize city, which by the way was a scenic drive and well worth it (3 1/2 hours and you want do it in daylight). It was nice to have a vehicle to visit sites that were further away like the coskscomb reserve and mayan ruins. Overall loved the place and was one of the nicest places in Placencia. We highly recommend it."

  • Great house and great help!

    "We were a group of 5 couples staying at the villa for the first week of Nov. We arrived Saturday evening from the ferry and German and Edgar were there with 2 golf carts to greet us and a taxi to take all of our luggage. The golf cart ride was an adventure in itself in a fun way! We asked for German's wife, Margarite, to cook our first meal at the house (Belizean chicken and rice) and it was amazing after a long day of travel. It was so good that we had her cook a couple of other meals, one of which included ceviche! All were excellent! The villa was beautiful, had plenty of room, and was a perfect location for our group. We loved hanging out by the pool and relaxing on the private dock. German and Margarite (and their little dog, Belle) live directly behind the villa which was very convenient and helpful when we needed anything and never intrusive! Edgar, aka Champ, would rake the sand in the mornings and attend to the pool if it needed it (and helped with any other requests). One day he came by and cut fresh coconuts for us. He also assisted on our private tour to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley...a MUST DO! I was a little concerned initially about some of the reviews, but the owners have added new furniture and plenty of kitchen ware so we never had an issue. We did rent the entire house which included the owners suite. There are 3 full sized refrigerators in the house which was nice since we did buy a lot of groceries. The trek to town on the golf carts was always fun and only took about 15-20 minutes. The Lone Star Grill and Cantina and the Black Orchid were only 5 minutes and both had a fun atmosphere and good food and drinks. We always stay in villas when we travel with a group for the privacy and this did not disappoint. The house also had 2 large flat screen TVs if you want to catch up on anything in the states, but we didn't use them much. It also has free wifi which was very fast and convenient for checking email and facetime with kids back home. We had a great time at Villa Incommunicada!"

  • Best Family Vacation!

    "As we pulled up to the dock upon arrival, our 10 year old daughter hugged me and said, "THANK YOU, MOMMY!! THANK YOU!!" That set the tone for our entire trip. My husband, 2 daughters (ages 10 and 7) and I had a great trip. We've stayed in quite a few VRBO houses (and co-own one as well!)--so we've seen the good and the not-so- good in our travels. We found this house to be absolutely beautiful. It is extremely well- maintained, the view is gorgeous and Martin and his wife are truly lovely people. There are so many different activities for families to do in Belize--and the house is located where you can easily do anything you'd like: arrange for a boat to take you snorkeling, jet ski, walk to the yoga retreat, swim in the beautiful pool, ride bikes down the beach or catch a water taxi into San Pedro. Some people wrote in their reviews about the inability to swim or go to the beach outside the house. That was really helpful to know and set your expectation accordingly. You are not going to walk out to the ocean and swim in front of the house--that's just not what this vacation is about. We didn't find any part of Belize to be about being on the beach and swimming. There are so many, many more fascinating ways to spend your time. And, the beauty of this house is the pool allows you to do a whole host of exhausting--yet really cool and unbelievable things during the day--and then have a relaxing swim in the evening. One thing we didn't do--but I'd like for one of the guests to try and report on for the rest of us!!--is have a cook come and prepare food at the house. There are a few good restaurants (the yoga retreat and Aji's) within walking distance--but it would be really helpful to hire someone to cook and not have to worry about it for a couple of meals. Thank you Debbie and Nick for letting our family experience the wonderful home you built. It was one of our best family vacations!"

  • Great time!!

    "Just got back from our visit. We had a blast! Condo was beautiful. Jerry picked us up at the airport and gave us a nice tour of town. He set us up with 2 golf carts to rent for the week. Was cheaper than the places in town! The condo was just as pictured. The pool was empty except for us most of the time. We used Searious scuba for our snorkling needs. they were the best! Picked us right up at our pier. Aji was our favorite restaurant. Its just just a couple doors down the beach path. Actually though, we never had a bad meal the whole time we were there. The location of the property is right in between multiple restaurants and bars. But far enough away that if feels secluded. No bugs at all! We were surprised by this. Guess the ocean breeze keeps them away. There is no phone. so we made all our plans the previous day so they could pick us up the next day. All in all a great trip. We had 7 in our group and there was plenty of room for all of us. We never felt crowded. Thanks for letting us use your condo!!!"

Belize Travel Tips

Looking for a getaway to unplug, reconnect and relax under the warmth of the sun? You'll find it all in Belize. This Caribbean locale is idyllic for all, from adventure seekers to nature lovers and everyone in between.

Whether you're looking to explore Mayan ruins and hike along rigorous trails or you can't wait to visit the local museums and experience traditional flavors each time you dine, Belize is sure to be a vacation spot you won't soon forget.

With its amazing, warm climate, you'll want to spend as much time outdoors as you can, and Belize features a host of national parks and wildlife sanctuaries to explore. You can see more than 500 species of birds as well as monkeys, crocodiles, lizards and other native creatures. There's also plenty of space to hike or bike and beaches to relax on. Belize is also an excellent spot to learn about history, as it was home to one of the world's most mysterious civilizations - the Mayans.

Things to Do in Belize

- Belize Barrier Reef: Explore the world under the sea at the Belize Barrier Reef, which is the second longest in the world. It's home to more than 100 types of coral and 500 species of fish, making it a huge attraction in Belize. Plan a snorkeling adventure to swim through the gloriously turquoise waters as you marvel at the cornucopia of life below the surface. As you get deeper, you can even check out underwater caves and walls, as well as the famous Blue Hole. On the surface, you can take out a kayak and paddle around from one islet to another, try windsurfing or simply lounge in the sound, listening to the relaxing sounds of the water.

- Altun Ha: Altun Ha is the most popular Mayan ruin to visit and easily accessible from Belize City. Here you'll find temples all around that provide plenty of information on the history of the Mayan culture. For 25 square miles, you'll be surrounded by forests and vegetation as you explore. In the Temple of the Masonry Altars, which is the largest, you'll find a jade replica of a Mayan sun god. This temple was used for religious rites and activities, and there's evidence of bloodletting and ceremonial sacrifices. The Temple of the Green Tomb is known for being a place where a Mayan priest-king made his funeral chamber, and it was found filled with treasures and offerings. It's called the green tomb because 300 jade pieces were discovered there.

- Museum of Belize: History buffs will love a visit to the Museum of Belize, which collects, preserves and displays objects with artistic, historical and scientific interest. You'll have the chance to see Belize's earliest stamp depicting Queen Victoria from 1937, a preserved jail cell and inmate, a Buenavista vase depicting the mythical Mayan hero twins doing a victory dance over the Lords of Xibalba and much more about the past and culture of the area.

- Xunantunich: This ancient archeological site is situated atop a ridge over the Mopan River. Xunantunich, which means stone woman in the Mayan language, is a major center for ceremonies that you can tour. It's accessible by ferry daily, and its name refers to a ghost woman many people have claimed to see who continues to haunt. She's said to be dressed all in white, but her most noticeable feature are her fire-red, glowing eyes. She's been known to appear in front of El Castillo, climbs the impressive stone staircase, then disappears into a wall. Take a tour here to see her for yourself!

Dining in Belize

- Riverside Tavern: One of Belize's most popular dining locations is Riverside Tavern, where you can enjoy a meal both indoors and outdoors. Steaks are a specialty here, but there ribs are just as tasty. For something a little lighter try the seared tuna, coconut or jerk shrimp, or grilled snapper. It's a laid-back sort of place, but after dark, shorts, sleeveless shirts and sandals are discouraged. So, put on your nicer dinner attire and treat yourself to a lovely meal overlooking Haulover Creek.

- Bird's Isle: Another favorite dining destination in Belize is Bird's Isle in Belize City. Step inside and it will feel like an oasis that locals and visitors alike enjoy. Sip on fresh-squeezed juice in the morning or a cold beer later in the day as you sample a stellar burger or snacks like conch fritters. Thursday nights there's karaoke, so warm up those vocal chords and get ready to belt out your favorite tune. Some nights there's also live music, so wear your dancing shoes just in case.
