Enjoy your own little piece of paradise in Maya Beach. We have two bungalows (green and blue) on the beach that are up on stilts, designed to capture the refreshing sea breeze. Our bungalows are self-accommodating, and we provide you with everything you need. Each bungalow has a queen size bed, full size sleeper sofa, hammock, two chairs on the covered front deck, and well-equipped kitchen. We offer complimentary coffee, 2 single person sea kayaks, 2 bicycles, WiFi, and charcoal BBQ grills. We have a 5 night minimum and three week maximum stay. Sorry, no children under 12.
If you are looking to get away from the crowds, Barnacle Bill's is the place for you. We are located in Maya Beach on the Placencia Peninsula, which is 8 miles north of the village of Placencia, 6 miles north of the Placencia airstrip, and 3 miles north of Seine Bight (a Garifuna village).
Our bungalows are self-accommodating. We provide you sheets, towels, beach towels, and complimentary coffee. We are available for anything else you might need. We live across the street, and will provide you with walkies-talkies so you can contact us anytime.
Our bungalows don't have TV's, but who needs a tv when you have a wonderful beach right out your front door, lots of birds and wildlife to enjoy, ability to snorkel off the shore with coral heads located about 50 feet out, kayak out to False Caye to view more sea life, walk down the beach to local bars and restaurants or just lay in your hammock on the deck and rejuvenate.
We don't have AC either, but we've never had AC in the 20 years we've been here. We haven't missed it yet. Your fully screened bungalows are cooled by the sea breeze, two ceiling fans and one floor fan.
The bungalows will accommodate a maximum of 3 people. The kitchens are equipped with full size fridge, 2 burner stove, coffee maker, microwave, cooking utensils, blender, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, and other amenities to make your stay more comfortable. We have a locking dresser drawer to store your valuables.
If you let us book your Maya Island tickets from Belize International to Placencia airstrip, we will pick you up and drop you off (will cost you $40 US round trip for a taxi). We will give you a tour of Maya Beach, show you where everything is located, and we will stop at the local grocery store so you can stock up on any needed supplies including liquor.
We have several restaurants located within walking distance: Maya Beach Hotel, Mango's bar and grill, Green Parrot, Singing Sands, and Chix Chicken. We also have a 4 lane 10 pin bowling alley. The only one in Belize!
We can help set up any tours you are interested in such as diving, snorkeling, fishing, inland tours with hiking, waterfalls, and Maya Ruins. We can also help you rent a car and direct you on your own adventures, or you can rent a golf cart and just explore the Peninsula.
