The Hummingbird House is perfectly situated to take advantage of the Caribbean breeze and the sunrise and sunset! We took advantage of its many amenities such as the private dock and paddleboards! Loved this place!

Seriously amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 6 adults. The house is just lovely and spacious. While it is an open floor plan it is large enough that everyone was able to find a space of their own. The air flow was perfect and loved that there was no AC. We enjoyed absolutely everything. Edwin, his family, the dogs...made you feel comfortable and safe. Edwin set us up with Rudy for a day of fishing/snorkeling, then lunch on a deserted island. Wow. We enjoyed Rudy so much we hired him to take us to Monkey River. A day of exploring the rain forest, howler monkeys included. The most perfect vacation. The locals were wonderful and kind. If you are considering Placencia book the Hummingbird House immediately.....it was a once in a lifetime trip for us.

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.
