2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo on the Caribbean Sea with views of Mayan Mountains
Best location in Placencia! Sunset Pointe sits on the southern tip of the Placencia peninsula and is surrounded by water on all sides. Enjoy the Caribbean Sea from one porch and the Lagoon from the other porch. Our condo is on the top floor with gorgeous views and a wonderful breeze. The rooftop palapa with bench seating provides a 360 degree view of water and mountains. The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo sleeps up to 6 people. Each room opens to a covered private outside porch through French doors.
All new living room furniture in February 2018.
The condo includes a shared swimming pool and thatched roof viewing dock on the Caribbean for your enjoyment. There is a caretaker on site to assist you, and local fishing/tour guides are available. The unit is just blocks from the center of Placencia Village which features restaurants, beach bars, entertainment, white sandy beaches, and grocery markets.
Rental of our condo includes the use of 4 bicycles and 2 kayaks as well as the use of a local Belize cell phone.
Getting to Placencia...
Fly into Belize International Airport and then take a 35 minute flight to the Placencia airstrip via one of the local Belize airlines (Tropic Air or Maya Island Air). The other option is to rent a vehicle at the international airport and take a scenic 3.5 hour drive to Placencia.
Belize is often referred to as one of the Seven Underwater Wonders of the World. The world's second largest barrier reef runs parallel to its coast. However, the barrier reef is not the only factor that makes Belize one of the world's most popular destinations for scuba divers and snorkelers.
Many of the small islands, known as 'cayes,' that lie off the coast of the Belizean mainland have their own coral reefs, with spectacular underwater gardens teeming with sea life of all types and sizes.
The clear turquoise waters and the proximity of the barrier reef make Belize a favorite destination for divers and snorkelers.
The 'cut' (channel) leading out to sea functions as a sort of 'fish freeway' for many large fish, including giant groupers, barracuda and nurse sharks, a timid and unaggressive shark species. Divers and snorkelers may enjoy a close encounter with a sea turtle.
Fishing in Belize:
Belize is a mecca for those interested in fishing. All kinds of fishing: spin, fly, trolling - can be experienced all year long, and the abundance of game fish guarantees excellent sport.
The estuaries, inlets and mouths to the many rivers are known for their tarpon, snook and jacks. The lagoons and grass flats are known for the bonefish, permit and barracuda. The coral reefs support grouper, snapper, jack and barracuda while the deeper waters off the drop off are home to sailfish, marlin, bonito and dorado.
Fishing is great all along the coast of Belize. Any of the many rivers which empty into the Caribbean along Belize's coasts can guarantee a daily catch. Most of your guides and boatmen speak English so learning where and what to fish will be no problem.
The waters surrounding Placencia abound with a great variety of saltwater fishing and the area boasts some of the best fishing guides in the country. Most types of fish, including bone fish and tarpon, can be caught year-round. Within 15 minutes of leaving the dock, you can be fishing in tidal flats or in blue water hundreds of feet deep.
A tour of the Monkey River where you will see crocodiles, howler monkeys and more, is a must. You will ride in a boat, but you will exit the boat to see the howler monkeys and have lunch. The lunch is an authentic Belizean meal of stew chicken with rice and beans.
If water is not your thing, there are many land tours available. Land tours include Mayan ruins, Chocolate Farms, Banana Farms, Spice Farm, horse-back riding, Mayan villages and homes where you experience an authentic meal. In addition there are zip lines, beautiful waterfalls, many hiking opportunities and bird watching.

Perfect location for Placencia adventures
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Placencia, Belize! Many thanks to our gracious and communicative host who provided this relaxing and convenient base for our adventures! In addition to the incredible views the home provided from its expansive balconies, we found the condo to be very clean and tastefully appointed with lovely furnishings, beautiful artwork, quality linens and abundant kitchen accessories. The owners also supplied bicycles and kayaks - which we were able to use several times during our stay - right from our door step! All of the literature provided for the area was helpful for locating the best village shops, grocery stores, restaurants and booking our adventure tours to Monkey River, the Mayan ruins and snorkeling on the reefs. Everyone we encountered, from the condo caretakers to the shopkeepers to the knowledgeable tour guides and local residents, were very friendly and welcoming! We had a great time and would absolutely return!
Great Vacation at a Fabulous Condo
The property is very well maintained, very clean and has everything you need and beyond!
The Condo is beautiful, very tastefully decorated. it was equipped with all required amenities and was very welcoming and comfortable. We enjoyed the spacious balcony enjoying the incredible views during breakfast and dinner.
The manager of the property was friendly and responsive.
We would definitely recommend this Condo!
Such a memorable week! The condo is so beautiful inside and out; a clean and comfortable home away from home. We chose to get around on the kayaks and bicycles and enjoyed the gem that is Placencia. Simple life, friendly and welcoming people everywhere we went. The caretakers were very helpful in helping us to schedule our amazing excursions and also transportation to airport. We loved staying here hope to return soon!
Beautiful surroundings, lovely home
This was our first visit to Belize. We traveled with another couple. We are glad we chose Placencia for our first week and very happy we chose this lovely 2 bedroom 2 bathroom property.
The property is very well appointed. The beds were VERY comfortable, a welcome surprise. The balance of the furnishings exceeded our expectations as well.
The kitchen was well stocked providing us with everything we needed to prepare two meals of the Amber Jack and Barracuda that we caught.
The location (at the very end of the peninsula) affords great views from two 2nd floor balconies for sunrise or sunset.
Sunset Pointe is both close enough to walk to great restaurants and bars yet far enough away when you just want to relax on the balcony or by the pool.
The staff were friendly and generous with their time whenever we needed advice or had questions as well.
All in all, a great time, great value wonderful memories.
We are glad you enjoyed your time in Placencia and found your stay in our condo to be comfortable and well furnished. We welcome you back any time.
We lucky enough to stay in this gorgeous condo earlier in January. It was even prettier than the pictures and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The neighborhood is quiet, the sunsets were gorgeous, the maintenance staff helpful and the kitchen was perfect for whipping up frothy tropical drinks or fresh lobster tails on the grill. We loved riding the bikes and our friends enjoyed the kayaks several times during our stay.
Do yourself a favor and rent this amazing and well-appointed condo in paradise! The owners are great to work with and you won't regret it!
Local tour guides available for trips to Mayan ruins, rain-forests, waterfalls, snorkeling and diving sites, cave tubing, river tubing and zip lining in the mountains. Guided fishing trips are also available.
