Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Property owned by familiy from Texas that built home and use it frequently. Home was designed with two master suites upstairs, a full large walk around bar and entertainment area and covered outside balcony. Specifically designed so two or more families with kids can spread out and enjoy their stay in a private beach setting and enjoy all Belize has to offer. On site staff are a very friendly young Mayan couple that speak great english and make you feel at home. They are extremely trust worthy and guest can arrange for wife to baby sit, if they want to leave smaller children to go diving or enjoy a great meal out.

Why Placencia, Belize:
Home is located in heart of some of the best saltwater fly fishing in the world as well as world class diving and snorkeling on the 2nd largest coral reef system in the word. The now fully paved 26 mile Placencia road makes getting on and off the peninsula by car a much more enjoyable and faster experience, thus making access to the rain forest, Mayan ruins, cave tubing and other attractions in the jungle easily accessible. While the continued improvements at the home like the large covered ocean pier and just finished pool on beach make leaving the home hard to do, PLACENCIA OFFERS THE WHOLE BELIZE EXPERIENCE!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Large private home and beach can comfortable accommodate up to four couples. Was designed to accommodate two large families with children. With two large master bedroom suites upstairs other two bedrooms both with private baths on first floor. Daily maid service, and guest clothes laundry service provided with rental. ONLY VACATION RENTAL THAT I AM AWARE OF IN PLACENCIA THAT OFFERS ALL OF THE FOLLOWING - 4+ BEDROOMS ALL WITH PRIVATE LARGE BATHS, ONSITE STAFF, PRIVATE POOL, PRIVATE OCEAN PIER, CENTRAL A/C, PRIVATE BEACH, GOLF CART INCLUDED WITH RENTAL!
