About Donald Haak

Retired and enjoying life to the fullest.

Donald Haak purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Donald Haak chose Placencia Peninsula

After my first vacation here in the early 1990's, my personal goal was set to build a vacation home here. It is a warm climate, an English speaking country, with friendly people. Lots of things to do, places to visit, and a great place to live and relax.

What makes this apartment unique

In a quiet area that is within walking distance to any and all the entertainment and activities in the village, the beach, grocery stores, and restaurants. .

Wonderful, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 weeks at Don's Windflower, my first time in Belize. The suite was clean with all the necessary kitchen utensils one would need for cooking. Don was a great host and if I needed anything he was immediately attentive to it. His friend Louis helped me find 2 huge slabs of king fish which was positively the best tasting fish I've had in a very long time. I loved taking a dip right there in the canal towards evening. My next door guests, Alfred and Barbara, were absolutely wonderful and fun. I loved the snorkeling with them. Monkey River tour was great too and as was a chocolate tour. I'd go back any time and hope to next year!! This time to share with others.

Great place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at The Windflower for more than a week. The Windflower is a lovely house with 2 one bedroom apartments and is located right on the water. We toured all over Placencia Village looking for property and we think the Windflower is located on the nicest street in the Village. It is just a short walk to the center but it is also at the end of a quiet, peaceful street. The apartment was exceptionally clean and was very comfortable for a couple. There are also two important bonuses. First, the backside of the house fronts onto a very nice dock with easy access for a refreshing swim after a busy day. You can float very easily in the calm water watching spectacular sunsets. The second, and most important, bonus is that your great host, Don, lives upstairs. He can supply you with bikes and kayaks, as well as arrange for local tours and activities. We spent several enjoyable evenings quaffing a cold Belikin with our genial host. Don is helpful and caring without ever imposing on your space.

Our 4th stay at Windflower!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from another great stay at Windflower. This was our 4th visit and already we

are planning for 2015. As always we did it all--fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, bike riding, etc.

The accommodations were great, the weather perfect and our host couldn't have been more helpful. See you next year, Don.

The Windflower - the place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for about a week and had a wonderful time!!! The views from the top of the rental are magnificent, looking at all the mangroves, sunsets, and just watching some boats go by.

The inside of the rental was nice with high ceilings, a couple ceiling fans, good size for a few people (2-4) although our dining table only had enough seats for 2. There is an option to have A/C but we didn't find this necessary, just leave the windows open and fans on when you sleep. We had all of the necessary utensils and cookware for cooking our own meals in, although eating out was also wonderful!

The bikes and kayaks just added even more fun and enjoyment for us while staying at The Windflower!

We enjoyed a couple quick dips in the ocean during the hot day! Biked around town to restaurants, gift shops and grocery stores and enjoyed some karaoke at a local bar! Close enough to town to walk or ride your bike but far enough out to enjoy a quiet evening in.

Don (The Owner) was very helpful with suggesting places to eat at/not to eat at, along with a couple suggestions on some tours we could go on. Very friendly and had a couple nice chats!!! :)

I did notice, but I think this is probably everywhere, that there are a bit of ants in the rental. We staying in San Pedro (Ambergris Caye) and Caye Caulker and they also had this issue. I wasn't aware of this issue in Belize until arriving, so just a heads up to others.

I also did not notice any games in our rental and so assumed there were none. I know that this would of added much more entertainment to our trip if we new we had some access to this.

I really enjoyed the neighbor dog, FLUFFY, that liked to stop by everyday and say hi, she added some more excitement to our trip and helped with me being home sick and missing my dog back home. :)

The Windflower is definitely a great place to stay, you will not regret it!

Beautiful Placencia

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay in Placencia! Close to the town and super clean. The rooftop was wonderful with an amazingly beautiful view! Right on the lagoon so we were able to have a boat pick us up from our "backyard". Such a perfect vacation, would definitely recommend this rental!
