Perfect getaway for a group of friends

  • 5 of 5

After a period of searching for somewhere for 4 adults to stay around Placencia, we decided upon Hummingbird House, & are so glad we did.

The location is perfect - feels private & secluded, but only a short boat ride (or paddleboard if you're feeling up to it!) from Placencia town, which is great for picking up supplies / eating & drinking. The house itself is stunning - nice and airy, well appointed (who doesn't need a blender for making pina colada's) and comfortable. There's no aircon, & whilst this was our main reservation with booking Hummingbird, were re-assured by previous reviews & found it perfectly comfortable.

Edwin the caretaker is a sweetheart, very obliging & put us in touch with someone to organise trips. Tom the owner was also great - prompt communication & quick to refund deposits following the trip.

Overall - a magical stay which we'll have fond memories of!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely, just keep in mind the bathroom that is not in the master is a shower/toilet combo, so you pull a curtain in front of door and the entire room is wet, takes a very long time to dry out. The care taker, Edwin is very attentive. Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain, and chose not to have Edwin take us to the mainland during the squallls, luckily we had peanut butter and jelly available for our dinners. Beware there are a lot of sand fleas/no seeums. Beautiful home and quiet.

We stayed with 6 friends in this house in January. We were astonished by the views from the upper balcony. The house is beautiful and fit our every needs. Edwin was so accommodating in taking us back and forth from the island and made is feel so welcome. I would recommend this for anyone interested!

Amazing Hummingbird House

  • 5 of 5

We can’t say enough good things about the Hummingbird House. My g/f and I spent a week there in November. Dealing with the owner, Tom, to set up the reservation through VRBO went smoothly. He was very responsive to our e-mails and questions. The house is located a couple minutes across the channel from the harbor in Placencia. Edwin, the caretaker, lives in the lower level of the house with his family. He is available to shuttle you back and forth to the mainland. There wasn’t a time that he was unavailable to run us across the channel when we asked Edwin was a great caretaker and super friendly.

The house is huge. Pretty much everything is located on the second floor. The kitchen is open & in the middle of the house. We were impressed with how well equipped it was. We made a lot of meals there & almost all of the items we needed for cooking or storing food. I would suggest always having a little extra food on hand in case of rain. One day it poured on us all day & we didn’t leave the house. On that note, there are some board games, playing cards at the house to provide some entertainment at night or on rainy days. no TV in the house, but the Internet was fast enough that we were able to watch Netflix on an iPad. There were three bedrooms, two of which had doors that opened out onto the huge upper deck. There is a full size picnic table on the patio so you can eat outside. A charcoal bbq grill is provided. Hint: All of the grocery stores carry charcoal, but they make it locally so it is packaged in plain brown paper bags.)

They have recently added a thatched roof sunshade on the end of the dock, which is really nice when you are sitting out there reading or fishing. There were paddleboards provided which were a lot of fun. The dock has a swim platform attached so it’s very easy to get in and out of the water. There is a nice beach on the mainland next to the marina. It only takes a couple minutes to row the paddleboards over there. outdoor shower in the main bathroom is great. It takes a minute or two for the hot water to make it through the pipes, but when it does, the water pressure and heat are more than adequate.There is a guestbook in the house that past renters have filled out detailing things they did on their trips. We took the advice of a few of them and booked a snorkeling/fishing trip with a local Chino.asked Edwin to set it up the night before, he made a quick phone call, and it was taken care of. Chino picked us up at the dock.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at the Hummingbird House in September, 2017. The house is spacious, beautiful and came with everything we needed. We enjoyed being on our own private island, yet so close to Placencia Village. What a way to spend a week in Belize. Edwin, the caretaker, took very good care of his and we enjoyed spending time with his family. Boots and Moon welcomed us every morning!
