Property description

Belize, Central America: Oceanfront Villa/Condo:

You are invited to enjoy my 2007 Caribbean water front condo in Placencia, Belize, Central America. This fully furnished, 2-bedroom 2 bath, one story villa sleeps 6 comfortably and is on the lower level for ease of access. The furniture is hand-made by local craftsman: mahogony bedroom furniture & wicker weaved right in front of our eyes! You will find everything you need for an extended weekend or weekly stay.

The master bedroom has a full-size bathroom in the suite. The guest bedroom's bathroom is adjacent. There is a washer and dryer along with three BRAND NEW air condition units to keep you cool in the tropical climate.

Several major airlines fly directly into Belize City (BZE). From BZE, take a 35 minute flight at 1,500 feet right into the friendly village of Placencia. Once in Placencia, take a $8 cab ride, 5 minutes to Sunset Pointe. Just a ten minute walk into the village you will find restaurants, Internet cafes, grocery store & outdoor markets. Most guests rent a bike or a golf cart for the week or, hire a guide for the day to drive you to the many attractions: waterfalls, river tubing, zip lining, banana plantations, Mayan ruins, etc

Previous guest have commented that renting a car is a waste of money: They are often over priced, the 3.5 hour drive from Belize City to Placencia is half dirt road with poor signage, Belize rental cars are not up to US standards AND once you arrive in Placencia, a car is rarely driven as Placencia has everything you need.

In addition, I have a connection with the best fishing guide in the village, Alfred Williams, who has won many annual Lobster Fests--a HUGE fishing tournament and celebration held every July in the village. Alfred is a licensed Charter Boat Captain -- with his own boat, of course. Just tell Alfred what you want for dinner and he'll do his best to make sure that it's on the outdoor grill that night. He will even hand-catch lobster, if in season! For a day trip, you may consider a 18 mile boat ride to the private island of Ranguana and Haychett Caye. Guest can request to be dropped off at the island for the day while enjoying snorkeling, relaxing under thatched cabana in a hammock while enjoying lunch prepared by the island caretaker. The other half of the party can then enjoy deep sea fishing, scouting for spiny lobster and conch under the attentive eye of a local charter boat captain. Be amazed at how your guide will know what is biting, what they're biting and when. No bottom finders or GPS required--they know their waters THAT well!

If you enjoy deep sea fishing, fly fishing for bonefish, spearfishing, snorkeling, diving ,, hiking, cooking or enjoying local cuisine, relaxing at the private property or on one of the many near-by, secluded islands, then you're going to LOVE Belize!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: This is my son, Will. He is 12 years old and he LOVES Placencia! He spends most of his time out of doors on the property looking for star fish, fiddler crabs, geckos & anything else that intrigues him! If he's not 'scouting', he's at the pool his local buddy, Ajay. Placencia is a relaxing place for ALL ages!

Why the Owner Chose Stann Creek, Belize:
Placncia ia a village of about 500 residents, and is unlike a tourist city in Mexico. There are no US chain restaurants, and the people are friendly. In addition, the worlds narrowest street is in Placencia....nicknamed 'the Sidewalk.' In short, it is a quaint, 2nd world, friendly village, at the end of a 23 mile dirt road, with the Caribbean on 3 sides. Truly a wonderful place. We drink the water piped in from the Maya Mountains, and eat the fish, conch, and lobster we catch within a few miles of the dock. The produce, and perishables are grown in the Cayo District, most by Mennonite farmers. Most homes, including ours, are furnished with mahogany and wicker, manufactured in Belize by hand. There is much to do, or nothing to do, your choice...did I mention they speak ENGLISH??

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You can hire a fishing guide to snorkel, dive or fish. A tour can be arranged for pick-up in the village (hike to waterfall, cave tubing, zip lining, Mayan Ruin tours, etc) In other words: No need to rent a car
