About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with stunning ocean view and dine in your own Palapa!

Congratulations—you’ve found the exact geographic spot in the world where all stress completely fizzles out. It simply can’t survive here!

Accessed only by boat, our three-story Belize townhome is surrounded by water on all sides. Here, the clear, Caribbean Sea meets a blue-green lagoon, where dolphins and manatees make frequent appearances and a pontoon boat waits to take you into Placencia Village.

After a quick boat ride across the 80 foot lagoon, you’re just a 5-minute walk from some mouthwatering seafood restaurants, local live music and “Grand Slam” fishing excursions. In town, we also recommend exploring Placencia’s calm and enchanting waterways. Additionally, we provide kayaks and bicycles to our guests (accommodates four).


WHY OUR PLACENCIA TOWNHOME?

Perched on top of this three-story Belize townhome, under the cover of a palapa—an authentic thatched hut—you can watch the sun rise over the water. And set over the water, too. Our unique island geography makes it possible to see both!

Here at our townhome, we have another big plus, too: our wonderful, welcoming caretaker, Edwin. Many of our neighbors here in Placencia are jealous that we get to have Edwin all to ourselves—you truly won’t meet a kinder man in all of Belize.

With his caretaker’s cottage adjacent to the townhome complex, Edwin is available in case of emergencies or when you need advice on adventures or places to eat. He speaks perfect English and is happy to help.

At the ultra-safe townhome complex, there are just four neighboring units. We aren’t a sprawling, packed resort. This means our big, sparkling, private swimming pool is never, ever crowded. And we always keep it at a flawless 72 degrees. This matches Belize’s own perfect temperatures, which hover around 75-80 degrees year-round.

Our complex also has outdoor pool showers for rinsing away the chlorine and a grilling hut surrounded by fragrant tropical plants. There’s no better way to spend an evening than flipping some burgers in the sea air at sunset.


STEP INSIDE

Inside the townhome, everything is cool, clean and modern.

The rooms are large and flooded with natural light.

In the kitchen, we’ve provided all the necessary cooking utensils, plus stainless steel appliances. There’s also a laundry room with a washer and dryer in the unit, so you can pack light and throw a load of laundry in at the end of the day at the beach.

The modern bathrooms include marble sinks and huge walk-in showers.

In addition to the rooftop palapa, with is shared with the neighboring townhome, you also have two separate verandas that are all yours—one accessed through the living room, and the other through one of the bedrooms.



WHAT TO DO IN PLACENCIA

The options are many.

Among our world-class offerings are unmatched sport fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling along the barrier reef. You can also charter a boat on the Monkey River, where howler monkeys play and crocodiles slink around and sun themselves on rock.

A little further afield, about an hour away, you will find the breathtaking Mayan ruins. Just a bit up the road from there, you can try your hand at ziplining, soaring above the forest floor and cascading waterfalls of Belize.

Or, you can just spend the day lounging around. There are many places to do just that—from the townhome’s pool to the sugary sand beach just a 5-minute walk away.


COME AND SEE US!

We’d love to have you in beautiful Placencia, Belize. There’s nowhere in the world like it.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I’m originally from Louisiana, but consider myself an Oregonian after 25 years here. I like the proximity of Belize to the US. It’s a quick escape from home into the quiet warmth of Belize. When I walked into Placencia Village I immediately fell in love with the remoteness, yet closeness to everything I would need while relaxing. I like to fish, snorkel and scuba dive. The warm, clear water in Belize makes all of these activities awesome. In fact, when I don’t want to get in a boat to fish, I can fish right off my boat dock outside my townhome. Even better, after I catch fresh fish off the dock, Edwin (the on-site caretaker) and I throw it on the grill. I bring the fish and he brings the mashed potatoes. Good thing we both enjoy BBQing and the outdoors. I have a background as an owner-operator of hotels and restaurants. I’m a believer in superb customer service and a good product for a fair price. I have an excellent reputation where I live as both a hotel owner and restaurateur. I like to believe I serve the best Thai food locally. While in Belize, I get my fix for Thai food at Thai Friday in Placencia. Please say hello to SiriPohn for me – tell her Max sent you.

Why the Owner Chose Placencia, Belize:
Living in often rainy Oregon, I knew I wanted to purchase outside the US and near or on a beach. I looked at Thailand, Panama and Nicaragua initially. I happened upon Belize almost by accident, but perhaps it was really coincidence and meant to be. I immediately fell in love with the people and the country. Beyond falling in love with Belize, I liked that the national language is English which makes it easy to communicate and get around. The currency is also easy to convert. The exchange rate is a simple conversion of two-to-one (2:1) with the majority of businesses willing to take either US dollars or Belizian dollars. Placencia Pointe provides the type of seclusion that is lacking in our hectic western lives. It’s close enough to town for a refreshing, easy walk, yet secluded on a secure lagoon right on the sea. Additionally, I love that I can walk out the door and leave it wide open or unlocked without a worry. Yes, it’s that safe and private. And Edwin is the best!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I love that each unit is multi-level (three-story), without anyone above or below. The only thing above each unit is a covered rooftop palapa with an authentic thatched hut. The panoramic view from inside or the rooftop is breathtaking! It is serenely quiet by day, by night, at sunset or sunrise. I love the views from each veranda. Gorgeous and instantly relaxing!
