About The Owner

My husband and I have owned a home in Placencia for 13 years. We loved visiting the Florida Keys until it became so crowded with people and boats. The Peninsula and Placencia remind us of what the Keys and Key West must have been like 75 or 100 years ago.

Where else in the world can you dive or fish on the second longest Barrier Reef in the world in the morning and cave or hike through pristine jungle mountains and go to waterfalls in the afternoon.

We love it here because no other country in Central America offers so much for so little effort in such a tiny land mass. Add to this the environmentally caring infrastructure and English speaking, friendly, laid-back people and you soon realize that Belize really does have it all.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Placencia Peninsula

The fishing is some of the best in the world and the wildlife viewing is spectacular. It is an adventure lovers paradise.

What makes this house unique

Private yet a five minute walk into the village for great restaurants, bars, and shopping, and local guides will pick you up onsite for tours.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of meeting Janis and Eric before they left to go back home. The property at Sunset Point is beautiful and does not disappoint. The apartment was quiet and relaxing looking out over the lovely garden.

The docks are wonderful to sit and read and catch a breeze. Everything was even better than described, clean and well maintained and I love that it all fits into the island theme from the woodwork to paint, tile and decoration.

I went searching for the elusive whale sharks with Alfred and although we did not see any we did plenty of snorkeling and fishing. I highly recommend Alfred for a perfect experience!

My favorite restaurants are Wendy's, Cozy Corner and Tutti Fruiti for gelato and Above Grounds for great coffee. I missed my favorite restaurant La Dolce Vita which I didn't find out until I left that they moved location to closer to the airport but highly recommend if you want some good Italian.

Thank you Janis for putting together this beautiful retreat and sharing it with the rest of us!

Owner's Response: We love sharing our piece of paradise with guests from around the world. The apartment is furnished with all local art and woodwork and carvings from Belize. Placencia village is small but has such a variety of world class restaurants to suit every taste and most all just a short walk from the Pointe House. Happy you were able to go with Alfred, if anyone can find a Whale Shark he can , he is all our guests favorite guide. Love to have you return to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Pointe House and look for the gentle giants of the sea!

Wonderful Return Trip to Sunset Pointe

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Sunset Pointe for a very enjoyable, but too short, eight day visit. The apartment and grounds are really beautiful, and very private. The deck at the back overlooks a lovely garden, surrounded by mangroves and ocean on three sides. As the name suggests, it is a perfect spot to enjoy the sunset (and your favorite libation). Janis was very helpful in recommending good restaurants in town, what to bring, and possible excursions. We really enjoyed our snorkeling and fishing excursion to Silk Caye with Alfred, who is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I also had two excellent days fly fishing with guides recommended by Janis. Although you can walk into town, we made good use of the bicycles as a quicker and cooler way to get there. We also kayaked into town one morning and stopped for fish tacos and Belikin beer for lunch. Today, I am back in the frozen north and wondering why we did not stay longer.....

Wonderful stay at Sunset Pointe!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from an amazing trip to Belize. We stayed at Sunset Pointe for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The accommodations were fantastic. The privacy was also great. The bed is extremely comfortable and the AC and Wifi were the best we had in Belize. It was a nice walk into town and didn't feel taxing in any way. Janis is a very helpful host and answered all our questions. Alfred was a fantastic guide and we were so glad to get to tour the ocean with such a kind and knowledgeable man! We will be back!

Breathtaking views, beautiful property, wonderful caretaker and guide

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Pointe in Placencia. It rained quite a bit, so we opted to rent a golf cart in town to make our travels in the rain a bit easier. The home is well appointed, secluded and just as described in the listing. Francisco was great and ensured we were well taken care of during our stay and Alfred was a wonderful guide, from snorkeling, fishing to hiking through Mayan ruins and waterfalls in the mountains.

Owner's Response: Yes, October is our rainiest month but happy to see you were able to enjoy many of the things Be,ize has to offer despite the wet weather. It is most unusual that it rains all day even in October. Most of the heavy rain occurs in the middle of the night and is gone by about 10AM. Renting a golf cart is a great way to explore the village and up the peninsula. We are very close to where golf carts are rented. We are very fortunate at Sunset. Pointe to have such a great caretaker and his family who live onsite and also an amazing guide who will pick you up onsite to do offshore or inland tours. Thank you for your review.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Sunset Pointe in Placencia. Location is close to town and even during the Rainy Season we could use the provided bikes to and from town in minutes. Furnishing and artwork inspired us to hunt in town for local carvers and painters

Peaceful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 11 days at Sunset Pointe. We found the accommodations as lovely as described. We took time to relax and enjoy the views from every dock and porch. We usually ate in for breakfast and lunch then tried all the different restaurants for suppers. We rented a golf cart which allowed us to travel to the resorts beyond the airport when we wanted to splurge on a dinner out. Our favourite restaurant was MOJOS on the balcony. The reviews of Tutti Fruiti had us going there every nite for our after supper gelato. My favourite was half peanut butter half dark chocolate but there were close seconds. We really appreciated Averisto's tour of Monkey River. Thank you Janis for all your attention to detail. Visiting Placencia in the shoulder season meant that plans to attend an advertised BBQ, band or restaurant opening might be delayed until after Nov 15 when more tourists are expected. But we made friends with other travellers at the Sunset Pointe condos and created our own fun. In all it was an enjoyable time. I would go there again when it isn't quite so hot.

Owner's Response: Yes, October is one of our hottest months and this past October was warmer than normal. December to March is ideal temperature and at night you may even need a light cover with no A/C, but fortunately all our apartments at Sunset Pointe have A/C in all the rooms to keep you comfortable no matter the temp outside. All our guests love that we have so many places onsite to escape and relax or read. We have two docks one on the Caribvean side with thatched roof and lounge chairs and one at the point that is the fishing and boating dock where guides pickup our guests for tours. We also have three rooftop decks with thatched roof and benches for viewing spectacular sunrises over the Caribbean Sea and sunsets over the lagoon and Mayan,Mountains.
