Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Looking for the road less travelled without sacrificing comfort? Come stay in our beautifully appointed, spacious condo on the beach at Los Porticos in Belize. Built in 2009, this condo is located near Placencia village on the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize.

Belize boasts the second largest barrier reef in the world with hundreds of small islands (Cayes) and the diving and snorkeling is superb. Swim in the warm Caribbean waters or if you'd rather, slip into the wonderful saltwater pool, relax on the beach under a cabana, or enjoy breathtaking views from the huge private balcony.

Local tour companies offer sea kayaking, fishing, caving, visits to explore Mayan ruins, or treks through the Belizean jungle to look for any of hundreds of bird species. The Village of Placencia has shops to explore, many featuring work by local artisans. You can also stock up on groceries if you prefer to do your own cooking in our fully equipped kitchen, or enjoy the great restaurants in Placencia. English is the official language although you'll hear Spanish and the local dialect. Come down for the Lobster Festival, or in time for whale shark season. Whenever you choose to visit, you'll find everyone here is friendly and this quiet side of Belize offers an extraordinary vacation. It's all waiting here for you.

About Los Porticos Villas

We are three Canadian couples who have joined together to share this villa. We enjoy getting away from our cold northern winters, but we've also enjoyed coming down in the summer for Lobster Fest. We love the climate, the smell of flowers in the air and the beautiful water. We hope you'll come and experience it for yourself.

Los Porticos Villas purchased this condo in 2009

Why Los Porticos Villas chose Placencia Peninsula

This is a great property in a great location. The villa is spacious, well appointed and steps from the beach. Los Porticos is a well designed property overall with lots of space and lovely gardens. A special events facility, spa and restaurant are due to open in the near future. Our beach extends all the way into the village of Placencia, which has a surprising number of amenities for its size and remains less developed than resorts in the north.

What makes this condo unique

Our location on the second floor, in the second building in from the beach, provides great views of the sea, the pool and gardens. This is our home away from home so we've tried to make it feel that way with books, DVDs, games and artwork from local artisans.

spacious and clean place but with some (minor) issues.....

  • 4 of 5

We loved our trip to Belize!!

The condo is great!!!! Nice views, great bathrooms, great balcony!! Very spacious!!

But I just wish there were 2 single beds in the second bedroom instead of a small queen bed. (not ideal for kids/teens) And the internet is soooo slooowww!!! This is really an issue. Solution: We got the pool password and had to sit at the pool to get a little faster connection. Also, Los Porticos has a serious drain issue.... it did rain a lot one night and the paths were really flooded. We had to walk over boards, and on bare feet through the water. I hope they fix the problem soon.

But overall we had a wonderful time: diving with Splash, dinner at Rumfish (very good and cosy) with dessert at the ice cream place next door, and amazing breakfast and fantastic dinners at the Bistro (Maya Beach) (a must! but make reservations). The little airstrip in Placencia to fly with Tropic Air is so convenient too!

Unmatched hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the hospitality and generosity of the los porticos staff. Beautifully constructed and spacious condo's provided ample space for our party of 9. Close to the airport, and only a short taxi ride from the sidewalk and restaurants of Placencia village, the possibilities are endless. I would recommend the los porticos villas to anyone looking for either a nights stay while awaiting embarkation or a romantic week under the Belizean sun; or why not both ;)

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time here! Your group was a lot of fun, too bad you couldn't stay longer. Hope you can round up the gang and come back and stay with us longer next time. Cheers!

Had such a wonderful time. The condo was absolutely fabulous, great space, great kitchen and plenty of space everywhere. The deck was especially wonderful. The beach and pool were also to die for. I would completely recommend this place as a vacation spot. LOVED IT!!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation staying at this condo in Belize. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything was so nice and new and clean. The furniture and beds were very comfortable. The pool and beach were never busy and we enjoyed a refreshing dip every day. The water was so clean and clear in the pool and off the beach. Placencia village offers all the amenities of food, stores and activities without being overly "touristy". We enjoyed the walk into town every night for supper and the evening's entertainment.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This place was gorgeous. We had never been to Belize before and now I have an amazing place to remember it. The condo was clean and spacious, the deck was so big and the view was amazing. I have recommended this place to many family and friends as the town was welcoming and there is so much to see. The grounds of Los Porticos were amazing and well-kept. The staff was friendly too. We even had the opportunity to snorkel every morning before breakfast as the ocean was right out the front door.

A very enjoyable time

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Placencia airport and a short walk brought us to the well maintained gardens at Los Porticos. The unit was very large and all amenities were of high quality. A huge balcony provided a wonderful view of the pool, grounds and beach. The manager of this unit is very well informed and helpful as are the residents of this complex. We were often offered rides into town by those who had cars or golf carts which is a popular mode of travel here. We highly recommend this complex and unit for a quiet, safe time by the beach.
