About ken Tanner

Ken an Candace live in the mountains of San Diego County California.

we have 6 children and 11 grandchildren, 2 dogs and a dozen chickens.

ken Tanner purchased this house in 2005

Why ken Tanner chose Placencia Peninsula

We had been traveling to Belize yearly since 1997. When we started looking for a place, Maya Beach came out on top by along shot. it is the most beautiful and relaxing place we found after years of looking. the original house is great, but we wanted a larger house with the hope of staying for extended periods therefore we built this new house on the other side of the lot directly on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The location is beautiful. directly between 2 small resorts, which greatly enhances security. the original house is located to the side of the lot allowing us to expand with a new house.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

I was pretty certain I was going to love this property so it was hard to imagine that it could exceed my expectations, but it did! It is every bit as gorgeous as it looks and very peaceful and quiet. We drank coffee and watched the sunrise from the beach every morning. And then if we wanted someone to prepare us a delicious breakfast, we walked a few steps to The Green Parrot. We were treated like VIPs by Leo and all the staff. The food at the restaurant was outstanding, but we had our own kitchen in our cabana to utilize as well. It was the perfect combo! We booked our amazing excursions through the Green Parrot as well and I received a glorious massage on our final day there. The massage therapist said we had found the best spot on the peninsula. I could not agree more. I will definitely return to Belize and I will definitely stay in this same cabana again. It was truly the vacation of my dreams. Thank you!

Great Maya Beach Gem!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 had the pleasure of staying at Caribbean Delight, Toucan House in May 2017. This was our first trip to Belize and we didn't really know what to expect, and I have to say we were very pleased. The house is located between two small resorts, but when we were there we had the beach for the most part completely to ourselves. Isabella and Leo at the Green Parrot next door were very helpful with information and letting us use their volleyball court and dock. You can also rent kayaks, bikes and other toys from them. They also make a great dinner if you don't feel like cooking.

The house itself is well appointed, clean and comfortable. Air conditioning was nice and the deck was fantastic. The kitchen is small, relatively well-appointed and very functional. There were some cooking supplies such as salt and pepper, but you can easily augment what's there at the grocery across the street. The neighbourhood is quiet, and you can walk to a number of very good dining options. The only thing that is missing in the neighbourhood is a good fruit/veggie vendor.

I would recommend getting a car while you're here. Placencia is about a 15 - 20 minute drive away and you'll want to spend some time there, even just to get some fresh fish and groceries.

Lastly, the beach is great!! No big waves or currents (fantastic for little kids). There are some patches of sea grass, but it was still fantastic for swimming. We even saw dolphins in the distance on our first day!!

Only downside was the futon wasn't the most comfortable option after a couple days, but the beds were fantastic. My only suggestion would be to have a few beach toys on hand for use by guests and some board games or cards to play after the sun goes down.

All in all, I would highly recommend a stay here. If we come back to Belize, we'll definitely return.

Great House, Fun vacation

  • 4 of 5

This house great - simple, clean and right on the beach as the photos show. The porch is so relaxing. Even when hot, the breeze from the sea was always there to cool you perfectly. Very clean and comfortable bathroom and shower. The two palapas with hammocks and beach chairs for the houses (same owner owns your neighbors) are perfect. Met some great people staying there as well as everywhere. We had no problems with sand fleas, mosquitoes or bugs so relax. I think any fellow traveler would enjoy this place. Good value for the money. The building is solid and the interior is simple, yet very well done. This house deserves a 5 star rating, but I had to knock it one for my fellow travelers due to the bar next door that basically touches the south side of the house. It may get very loud on a evening until 11 or so if a bad band is playing like it did for us. On other evenings the radio also plays, but much lower as long as the bar is open and it is heard through the wall - not a deal breaker, just something everyone should know if you demand absolute peace and quiet. I would also suggest you use that very bar's kayaks for $10/day though - the Green Parrot rented one to us for $10/hr - until we cut a deal next door for $10/day - we all paddled to False key which you see from the beach - it took 25 minutes and believe me, this DIY snorkeling adventure is worth your energy. Just trying to save you a few bucks. Leo did set me up with Alrin on a snorkeling/fly fishing tour of the islands in a small panga with a 50 horse and it was the highlight of the trip. Also, the Green Parrot would not do our laundry, you must go into town if you want that done. All in all this was a great place. Phone the owner - he has great ideas and info. Get on "island time". Thanks.

Greatest Time Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation experience of my life. We were picked up at the airport and brought to the most beautiful spot on earth. When we came onto the property it felt as though we stepped back 60 years into a Hemingway novel. Morning coffe on the veranda. Afternoons on the quiet and serene beach under the palapa. We had snorkeling, fishing and tours to the interior all arranged by Leo and they picked us up at the house. I don't see how it could have been better. We stayed at Ken's other house for part of our stay, but this one is literally on the beach.

Relaxing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to Maya Beach at the Caribbean Delite Beach house. We will be back - The house is adorable and the beach is heavenly! You literally walk down the stairs from the deck into the SAND! A dream come true. I love that the house has air-conditioning. Kayaking, snorkeling, Mayan Ruins, 'hammocking', fishing (and what you catch- the restaurant will cook for you!!!), walks on the beach lead you to the cutest beach restaurants with AMAZING food!

VACATION OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5

Beach front - literally on the sand. Nothing between the house and the water but Coconut trees, cabanas and hammocks. Sweet air conditioning and cable tv for the flatscreen on the inside. Kayaks and among the best snorkeling in the world. Two fantastic restaurants - never had fresher fish than this - outrageously tasty food. BTW the two restaurants are about a 90 second walk - one to the left - one to the right - with many more down either side of the beach. Yesterday we snorkeled with sharks and sting rays. Looking forward to next time :)
