About Lou Nicolait

We landed in Belize in 1973 while vacationing. We fell in love with Placencia and the rest is history.

Lou Nicolait purchased this house in 1973

Why Lou Nicolait chose Placencia Peninsula

This location is the best in the village. Close to all the action, but as private as you want to make it.

True Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as it's described here. We had a well-equipped kitchen, roomy bathroom, and fantastic outdoor space for lots of relaxing. The hammocks were the perfect place for an afternoon nap or to read a book. The huge beach was nearly deserted most of the time (except for a few entertaining and friendly dogs who made a quick visit each morning). The water was warm and clear, and there was plenty of shade on the beach if you didn't want to stay in the sun.

Josh was just great! She had some great recommendations for places to eat and was incredibly kind and helpful. Epi was wonderful--he brought us fresh-picked coconuts with straws so we could have fresh coconut water one morning and then brought a whole gallon of coconut water the next day. Very refreshing! We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Lou, too--she's a really neat person.

If you want a quiet getaway with lots of privacy, this is your place. The nearby village of Placencia (within walking distance) has some wonderful places to eat. We highly recommend the fried lobster at Dawn's followed by a delicious gelato at Tutti Fruitti. Scuba diving with Warren from Sunnyside Tours is great if you want something more adventurous than beach time.

All in all, a wonderful vacation spot!

Great Stay- Great Location- Great Owners

Perfect place for my wife and I and our 2 teenagers. Perfect location to walk to local restaurants and grocery store. Also, the owner Lou and Joshlin were awesome and very helpful. Lou even drew us a hand written map back to the airport in Belize City!

Would highly recommend.

PARADISE !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house for 10 days. Joshlin helped make it an awesome experience for us. She assisted us in seeing things we never would have seen on our own.. We wanted to kayak, tube, find fresh fish, waterfalls and pristine beaches, and the best places to eat and of course Tutti Frutti (homemade ice cream).. YUMMY!!! We walked the beach everyday to the pier & back. Barefoot Bar & Tipsy Tuna Bar just a 10 minute walk ,fun places to hang out, eat, drink & entertainment.

The place was clean and open, well stocked with everything you need. A few cold beers were waiting for us when we got there too! We highly recommend the beach house for your next vacation, we had a great time!!

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting, beautiful open home. The beauty was in the simplicity of the living space, open and flowing. The sound of the Caribbean Sea and the winds enhanced the paradise feeling. A perfect location in Placencia. A close walk to the town, restaurants, grocery stores, and tour hook ups, yet far enough away to feel isolated. In my book, that is paradise. The bonus to this location is presence of Joshlin, the care giver and of course Kind Epi

The wonderful thing about Placencia Village is you can be as high tech or laid-back as you want. There are computer repair services and internet connections or tranquil freedom from all the technology devices.

Placencia Beach House is located at the north end of the sidewalk, the world's narrowest road, in Placencia Village, within walking distance of all the restaurants, bars, and gift shops. The North end is quiet and private, but near the action. You can party all you want without a designated driver, or lie quietly in your hammock in complete privacy. The friendly villagers speak English and are always ready to lend a helping hand. Fitness training and yoga classes, as well as, spa services are available. You can explore the village on a bicycle or ride up the peninsula for lunch at Seine Bight or Maya Beach.

There are several full-service dive shops that cater to both the beginner and experienced diver. Instruction is available for certification at all levels.

Some choose to simply enjoy the snorkeling. The dozens of offshore cayes (pronounced keys) each have fringed reefs and the Belize Barrier Reef, 18 miles from Placencia, is second to none. Many of the wonders in tropical waters are only one foot below the surface.

Some claim that Placencia offers the world's best fly fishing. The fishing guides were born in Placencia and learned secrets from their fathers that have been passed down for generations. Besides catching bonefish, permit and tarpon, you can troll for kingfish and barracuda, or catch your own bait and simply hang out at the cayes with a drop line.

About 30 miles from Placencia, off the southern highway, is the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Reserve, the world's first reserve established to protect this endangered species. Don't expect to see a jaguar. but you can go river tubing, hike to the waterfalls at the top of Tiger Fern trail, or climb Victoria Peak, the highest peak in the Cockscomb!

A little further to the north on the Southern Highway, you can visit Mayflower Archaeological Reserve and hike to Antelope Falls or Bocawina Falls, or arrange with Bocawina Adventure Tours to go zip-lining through the canopy forest or repelling down the water falls.

To the south, on the Southern Highway, you can visit the archaeological ruins of Nimli Punit and Lubaantun. During the same day, you can take in the massive cave at Blue Creek Village where Maya artifacts were found by modern archaeologists.
