Casa Laguna Vista...a home with a view.

Plantation, Belize
  • House1050 sqft
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps6
  • Bathrooms2
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay6 nights

Two-bedroom two-bath home with a great view of the lagoon and the mountains.

Across the Placencia Road from the Caribbean Sea, waiting for you on the shores of the Placencia Lagoon is this modern two-bedroom two-bath vacation home known as Casa Laguna Vista. It offers a splendid view of the Maya Mountains, the Placencia Lagoon and, across the road, the Caribbean.

Located on the Placencia Peninsula at Mile Marker 14 in the Plantation Subdivision, this home puts you in the middle of all the things you want to do when you vacation in Belize. Take a 15 minute trip to the Placencia Village and its famous sidewalk or dine at one of the many restaurants along the way. Several dive shops and tour operators in the village offer snorkling and diving trips to the Barrier Reef or Laughing Bird Caye.

Or you can arrange a jungle tour to the Jaguar Preserve (or drive yourself). The tour operators will pick you up at the house so you can enjoy the view of the lagoon and the Maya Mountains while you wait for your native guide. Other activities could include a drive up the very scenic Hummingbird Highway, which winds its way through the Maya Mountains, to Belmopan, the capitol of Belize, for lunch; or you could skip lunch and have a cup of Belizean Coffee and a cinnamon roll at Kropf's Mennonite Bakery, which is located somewhere near the midpoint of the drive up the mountains.

Other trips could include a trip to Red Bank and a two hour trek through the jungle to the nesting grounds of the Scarlet McCaws, an endangered species of very colorful parrots native to Belize and Guatemala. This is a difficult trip to organize and not all guides can take you there, but its a magnificent sight if you can get there.

Or, if all else fails, just sleep in and let the noisy ChaChaLaca birds wake you up in the mornings and just stay at the casa and enjoy the view. The Casa is air-conditioned and fully equipped with two televisions, cable TV channels, a washer and dryer, and a WiFi network for your laptop.

                                                              Comfortable. Close to village shops. Near many restaurants. 2 miles from pretty beach

                                                              Very clean and modern with a great location

                                                              We have stayed at Casa Laguna Vista for the past four years and will return again! That says it all! We love everything about the place--excellent accommodations, near activities and great restaurants, and wonderful views and surroundings.

                                                              I booked and paid for this home well in advance and called the owner in order to establish a contact on arrival , I was told that a gentleman named Leo would be at the airport to meet and greet me. He also said He would call me the weekend before our arrival to confirm. None of that happened. I then went to the Green parrot resort where Leo is the manager so that I could register but Leo was not there so I had to try to find someone who could give me the Key to the house, I did find someone who gave me the key to the house but no key to the side gate, so we had to climb over the fence to get in. I then returned every day for three days and finally he was there and I registered but he could not find the side gate key . the a/c in the living was leaking so I informed Leo and it was fixed 3 days later. Now, having said all that , I did rate the stay at 4 stars because the place was great with ocean and lagoon views. It was well supplied and very comfortable and clean. P.S the a/c mechanic brought me the sidegate key.

                                                              This is not quite how it went down, but I'll take the four stars anyway.

                                                              Beautiful home with a nice private view.

                                                              Great value for the price. House is very nice, well built and very secure. Definitely recommend for someone who doesn't need to be on the beach or have a pool. House was very cool inside and also has great AC in every room. Good cable TVs in all rooms.
