  • What a Beautiful Place

    "Ocean’s Edge is a wonderful place. My husband and I have enjoyed this place on several occasions. The beach is very private (as we like to lay out nude) and the house is very comfortable. It is so much fun to sit on the beach and watch the wildlife during the day and in the evening when the raccoons come to feed on bread that we leave out. If you are looking for a quiet and private place, with beautiful flowers and vegetation…Ocean’s Edge is the place for you. The owners Mike and Frankie are great to work with as well as the property managers. We have always rented a car and driven to Ocean’s Edge. It is a beautiful drive and Belize is a safe country to travel. The owners have a notebook filled things to see and do, so come and enjoy the hidden treasures of Belize….what a beautiful place!! ? We recommend the Monkey River Tour as well as Cyrila’s Chocolate, this is a great adventure back in time when chocolate was made totally by hand and the owners are wonderful."

  • Best vacation ever!

    "Well we just got back from a 7 day stay in this amazing home. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Orlando was a great, real friendly and helpful. We went with one other couple and everyone agrees it was the best vacation they have had. I highly recommend staying at this house, Kelli and Rob are a pleasure to deal with, very prompt and professional service. We booked a sailing and snorkel trip through Seaduced which picked us up right at the Palapa bar then took us to town where we got on a catamaran then we sailed to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and did some snorkelling then off to Shark and Ray Alley where we swam with sharks and rays then we sailed to Caye Caulker where we explored the island for 2 hours and had lunch. We then jumped back on the boat and sailed back to San Pedro. Another great thing to do is rent some bicycles and head north or south (we did both) and just explore. It was an unforgettable time, we are already thinking about going back!"

  • fantastic! great family residence!

    "wow! did this place ever impress! the residence was perfect in every way. we had our 2 children with us, ages 9 and 2, and everything was more than we could have dreamed of! the gardens were beautiful. the house was nicely appointed. the pool was refreshing every time we went in...and that was generally 3 times a day. upon arrival, paul met us at the airport and picked us up. upon arriving at the house, paul & gail took care of us that first nite as we arrived late and our 2 yr old was tired from two 18 hr days of traveling. they took great care of us. made sure we were fed & made sure we knew how things worked. after some sleep, we woke up the next morning & walked into town (10 min) and went to get our rented bikes (reserved by gail). for 2 weeks we simply rode bikes everywhere. what a fantastic location. no need to rent a car unless you are going to the ruins. got groceries on our bikes and returned beer bottles and cases on bikes. what activities we chose to do, gail arranged for us. this was like having our own personal assistant while on vacation. everything that was arranged was top notch! monkey river, snorkeling, fishing. the property was described accurately. the property was very clean & very well maintained. in fact, the only drawback for us was the constant care that has to go on to the property to keep it beautifully maintained. lots of gardeners, painters, etc. we felt badly swimming in the pool while they were all sweating away and working so hard. even though all the guys were working, they were respectful and very nice to us and our kids. they loved the kids! if we were going to placencia again, we would love to stay at this beautiful home. we were not disappointed at all and were very pleased with our decision to book and stay for 2 weeks. this was a definite favorite vacation for all 4 of us."

  • Honeymoon in Belize

    "My (now) wife and I just back from our honeymoon in Placencia and we're already hoping to get back as quickly as we can! Placencia is definitely off the beaten path and it will take a little extra traveling to get there, but it's well worth it. The people are wonderful, the food excellent and you have the flexibility to either take it easy or go on an adventure with a tour agency (we went up to the ATM cave with Pirate's Point Adventure Tours and Shane was excellent) or book through Francisco, who works at the condo and can help arrange most tours if you ask him. If you go fishing and decide to keep your catch, a place called The Shak has a "you hook it, we cook it" option - unfortunately we found out about that too late, so weren't able to take advantage of it. The condo itself was excellent. It's a bit large for only two people, but that didn't detract from our stay. Having the pool on site was also a big plus. The condo is at the very end of the peninsula, which makes it an ideal location if you want a quiet place to stay. You do have the option to rent a bike or golf cart to get to and from the main part of the village; we walked most of the time and didn't have any issues. (If you're looking got do some inland adventures, most tour agencies can arrange transportation. Yes, you will pay for it, but it is worth it.) It's maybe a 5-10 minute walk and, even during the hottest part of the day, it wasn't unbearable. We are very happy that we stayed here and would recommend this location to anyone else looking to visit Placencia."

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.
