Property description

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.

Location

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

 

Owner info

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, Belize:
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

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The balcony and lower patio provide a cool place to chill with a stunning view of the lagoon.
