Lagoon Frontage - Cheap, economical and beautiful views

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 14 nights


About the property

House (up and down duplex), each suite is 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Placencia is a sleepy little village with an end of the road feel to it. Probably because it is at the end of the road. Ex pat's, locals and tourists mingle with a funky harmony. You'll feel safe everywhere in the village. Our family has been going to Placencia for over 15 years and our kids roam with the other neighborhood kids with a comfy feeling of safety. We're in the heart of the village with local families and a few ex pats in the neighborhood. Local friends look after our house when we're not around. They live 100 meters away, their parents live across the road, three brothers down the lane.... you get the idea.

What you're getting is very simple clean accommodations in a super central area located in a beautiful setting on the lagoon. We recently upgraded the shorefront and put in a nice concrete sea wall where you can chill with a drink, fish, watch the sun set, etc.

Many people use our home as a base for exploring Belize, others just want an economical place to chill out and experience Belize in a manner you can't when staying in a big resort or vacation home removed from the village.

If you're looking for a Cancun-esque type of experience, Placencia is not for you. Come here to chill, relax, do a few day trips, snorkel, beach it, etc.

Food is cheap if you eat Belizean and you could probably eat out 3 great meals a day for $20 US per day.

About The Owner

We're a Canadian family who aspires to avoid the cold winters by spending time in beautiful Belize. In the interim, Belizean friends of ours help us by managing the property on our behalf.

Why The Owner chose Placencia Peninsula

We love Belize, especially Placencia. The tourism here is more a backpacker kind of crowd. The people from the big resorts wander into town on their golf carts but tend to wander back just as quickly. It's English speaking, beautiful weather, friendly people, great food. What more could you ask for

What makes this house unique

The balcony and lower patio provide a cool place to chill with a stunning view of the lagoon.

Blue lagoon

We stayed at the blue lagoon house for 3 months this winter and truly enjoyed our stay there. Nice being so close to the villiage and the house was comfortable, would definitely like to stay there again.

Our stay at the blue house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the house was everything we expected. Joe made things very easy and hassle free. It was a close walk to everywhere we had to go and the nieghbourhood was friendly. We enjoyed peaceful mornings reading and listening to music on the lagoon it was a short walk to the beach to spend the afternoons and great restaurants near by for diner when we chose to eat out. A amazing experience

Wonderful month in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to the blue house on the lagoon in Placencia Village. First 2 were 2 weeks each. This trip decided deserved a month. House is centrally located - can walk almost every where. Joe, Egbert, and Judith are very accommodating. If there are any issues, contact one them and things are handled very quickly. House is basically full equipped. Kitchen has what you need for cooking in or grilling on the patio. Bedrooms are comfortable, full bath with hot water showers, washing machine so you don't have to take the closet. Location is ideal that you don't need air, but there is a fan in every room that keeps it very comfortable. Stayed for one month. We are home and already sorry we didn't stay for two. But we WILL be BACk!

This was a great choice

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed here for 2 weeks. The price was very reasonable, everything was nice and clean and the area was very convenient to everything that Placencia has to offer. The location on the lagoon was very nice. The house had everything we needed to cook our own meals at home when we wanted. We stayed in the downstairs unit. The neighbors upstairs were very nice. This is a great choice if you are looking for a clean, quiet, economical option for a great stay in Placencia.

Thanks for your hospitality. We had a great time to stay at your house. Listing description was "under-promised and over-delivered". Great lagoon location (literally I could fish from the deck), quiet, safe, very clean and well-maintained place. The manager took a very good care of us. Everything was good, easy and in place., NO COMPLAINS AT ALL. I would definitely recommend this place to our friends.

Kayak the lagoon looking for egrets, storks, alligators, fish off the sea wall and catch a few black snapper for dinner, go for a dip in the lagoon, watch the sunset behind the Maya mountains over the water
