Why Annelise Hagan chose Placencia

Placencia - is 'Barefoot Perfect' - laid back with superb water activities, snorkeling, diving, sailing, boating, fishing (trolling, deep-sea, fly-fishing - tarpon, snook, bonefish and permit) or swimming at the best beach in Belize. The water-side Three Iguanas Villa is ideally located. Jungle explorations in the jaguar reserve, Maya ruins, cave-tubing, hiking and horse-back riding are nearby land adventures.

What makes this Villa unique

                                                                Perfect stay for a family or group of friends

                                                                We stayed at Three Iguanas Feb/2016 for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it.

                                                                The house is located in a very nice neighborhood at the edge of Placencia village. There are only 2 streets with a waterfront docks and Three Iguana is on one of them.

                                                                Three Iguanas is a beautiful, modern, 3 storey house. Owners live on the second floor while renting out 1st floor and a suite on the 3rd floor.

                                                                The house itself is very conveniently located. It takes only 5 minutes walking to the beach bar or a restaurant like Barefoot or Tipsy Tuna. Only 3 minutes to the grocery store. 3 minutes to the bank/ATM.

                                                                Only 4 minutes to the pristine, beautiful, white sandy beach.

                                                                We like that the house is not in the center of the village as it is peaceful and quiet there during the evening, so you can relax with a favorite book while gazing on the water from the dock. We also enjoyed swimming right off the dock.

                                                                Annelise is the new owner of Three Iguanas and the friendliest, most kind host we have ever encountered. Annelise and Doyle live in the house on the second floor and were always available if we needed anything. Annelise even loaned us a phone so we could contact her at any time - she always responded immediately!

                                                                They were so gracious , they invited us for a home cooked dinner on the night of our arrival and my daughter said that Doyle makes the best BBQ chicken she had ever had :-)

                                                                Because of some changes in our travel plan, we arrived to Placencia 2 days earlier. Luckily Three Iguanas had first floor studio available for those two nights, however with only a queen bed in it.

                                                                As there are 3 of us, Annelise bought !!!! the futon bed, so our child had a bed to sleep on.

                                                                We stayed in a two bedroom suite for another 5 days and loved it as much as our smaller studio. All rooms are spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and with very comfortable beds and squeaky clean bed sheets and towels.

                                                                Overall, we had an amazing, unforgettable stay at Three Iguanas thanks to Annelise and Doyle our gracious hosts. If you're lucky, Doyle will climb a tree and cut you a fresh coconut to drink!

                                                                We plan to go back to Placencia and when we do, we want to stay at Three Iguanas again as our stay was perfect in all the possible ways.

                                                                Thank you Annelise and Doyle for making our stay an amazing experience. You made us feel so much welcomed and

                                                                paradise found!

                                                                Bradbradenton beach, fl. USA

                                                                what a beautiful place to spend our 20th anniversary...accommodations were clean and the property manager Stefano was there to answer any of our questions upon request...we will definitely be returning in the future to the beautiful village of Placencia and the amazing property of the Three Iguanas!

                                                                Great place, and wonderful location!


                                                                We chose to stay at 3 iguanas for a second time due to the comfort of the home, the location, and Stefano( property manager) and Sofia ( on site worker).

                                                                The home is very comfortable, and the 3rd floor pool is fabulous...great sunsets up there!

                                                                The location is a nice walk or bike ride to town. The beach is a short walk across the road( though this time the beach had tons of seagrass and it was hard to get in the water).

                                                                We only wish there had been a double Kayak, or 2 singles ( there is one single).

                                                                We highly recommend 3 iguanas for a laid back place to unwind in Placencia!

                                                                A great place to stay in Placencia

                                                                My wife and I have rented the Three Iguanas with a large family group and it was a wonderful place. Very finely furnished second floor with large bathrooms and a well appointed kitchen. The third floor has wonderful views and a plunge pool to relax in when it gets hot. The views of the distant Maya mountains to the west are breathtaking. We travel to Placencia on a regular basis and we always try to stay in the third floor suite with the pool and views. Stefano who managed the property is a great host and has always taken care of us when we visit. We will be back!

                                                                Highly recommended villa, a perfectly situated place in the heart of Placencia. The landlord and property manager were most hospitable and helpful and provided numerous excellent recommendations for dining and area activities. While we ate most meals out, the villa was completely equipped for full meal preparation and the air conditioning was very much an added bonus.

                                                                We highly recommend renting a golf cart for transportation as they allow for much greater coverage than on foot.

Loved riding the bikes down to the village, great snorkeling in areas close by, taking some drives in our car to visit ruins and go cave tubing.....this was an amazing trip for us! This was our fourth time to a Central American country and I must say Belize is a favorite! Stefano was very helpful and Sofia also. The house was perfect for us!
