One Particular Harbour

'I know I don't get there often

But God knows I surely try

It's a magic kind of medicine

That no doctor can prescribe'

'But there's this One Particular Harbour

Sheltered from the wind

Where the children play on the shore each day

And all are safe within'

Why Melissa Fryer chose Caribbean Way

We built ' One Particular Harbour' because this is our special 'Happy Place'. Placencia is a great vacation destination and our home is a wonderful way to enjoy this enchanted place. Once we arrive our blood pressure drops, our speech slows, cell phones disappear and we become one with the sea and our surroundings. The mellow 'non touristy' atmosphere of Placencia melds a unique culture with great restaurants and nightlife. No 'megaships' dock here. Action and adventure from jungle lodges, deep sea fishing and diving can challenge you or read a book on the beach in your hammock.

Life is slow, people smile, no one is mad, the beer is cold and rum is flavorful!

Life is special here. JOIN US.........

What makes this villa unique

There are multiple ultra luxury homes and barebones homes for rent on the peninsula........

We are the sensible answer to both. The villa is beautifully apportioned without being 'over the top'. Comfortable luxury at a reasonable price designed for families and groups of friends to enjoy the perfect vacation.

Warm interior, expansive exterior with pool, beach, covered palapa, barbecue, chairs and hammocks......doesn't get much better than this!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family from February 15 - 22, 2018. The property is beautiful and well stocked with the things you need to enjoy your time in paradise. Melissa was great. She made sure we had what we needed and has set this property up so you have nothing to worry about while you're there for a visit. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

Great House, Great Location, Great Service!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited with most of our family, including the 2 y.o. grandson and could not have been happier. The property manager, Melissa, was in contact immediately after the rental was confirmed with a wealth of information regarding the house and the area. She met us when we arrived and along with her husband made certain that everything was satisfactory. They even came over in the evening and brought us a new grill!

The house is well situated with a nice beach area that is well maintained by the caretaker, Teo, who lives across the road. He's very polite and helpful. He keeps the beach free of sea grass by raking daily and keeps an eye on the systems of the house to insure that all is in top shape. Everything is relatively close by for groceries, restaurants, etc. The sea kayaks are a blast and the pool is a nice thing to have, especially with the baby. Watching the sunrise from the third floor deck was a great experience and became a regular occurrence! The layout is outstanding as there are upstair and downstairs kitchen areas and the way the rooms are situated, there is good privacy. The area is safe and the house is very well equipped. We would definitely look forward to another visit to this wonderful home.

One Paricular Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The property is everything the listing describes and much more! My family (Wife, 4,9 and 19 year old girls, mom and grandma) and I spent one week at the house, the girls absolutely loved having the pool in the rear porch and the beach about 20 yards behind the house. There are two units downstairs, each with its own bathroom and a shared kitchen. Upstairs you have a master bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and a huge balcony. Teo, the groundskeeper did an admirable job keeping the grounds clean, I use the word admirable because he had a lot to clean up after the hurricane that passed nearby on its way to Belize City and Mexico. Melissa was away during our stay, so her colleague, Herbert was there to answer any questions and help us get ready for the Hurricane. Both Herbert and Teo were very helpful and friendly. There are 2 dogs that live in the surrounding houses. One is a german shepherd-looking dog and the other is a white dog. The white dog is very friendly and good with kids, the german shepherd is also nice, but it takes a little longer to gain his trust, so be careful when you first meet him. The house is clean, just make sure you use flip flops when you shower. I made the mistake of not doing that so I got a pretty bad case of athlete's foot; I had to drive into Placencia to get some antifungal spray.

For nearby activities, I recommend the Maya visitor center nearby and the Silk Grass Forest Reserve, both are a short drive away. If you want to cook some fresh seafood, don't bother going to the local markets, non of them sell any; but you can go to a small village nearby called Riversdale and ask around, you're bound to find a local fisherman with fresh catch. There's a guy there that catches fresh lobsters on Tuesdays. A drawback of staying in a place with low population like Placencia is that it's not economically viable to import fresh meat, so unless you want frozen, tough beef, you'll have to drive to San Ignacio about three hours away to find a decent cut of meat. There is a "Beefmaster" nearby, but they don't age their beef, so it'll be tough.

There are some fairly decent restaurants nearby. The Tipsy Tuna and the Maya Beach Bistro were okay.

Overall, I would recommend this house to my friends and family. The house is spacious, clean and you have your own private pool and beach. What more could you ask for?!

Looking for a lovely getaway...found it!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 2 couples that have different sleep habits. We traveled with a couple that liked to get up very early. So they had one part of the house to do their thing without bothering the late sleepers. Also the house was in a very quiet neighborhood. We felt like it was our private home. We snorkeled from our beach. There is grass in the front but we went out beyond the neighbor's pier. The neighbors dogs would visit regularly but we loved them. Melissa was available by phone when we needed information on the area. You do need a car to drive to the local restaurants and sites. We went on a snorkel tour and the Monkey River Jungle tour. I suggest to take the cheaper jungle tour. We paid a lot to take a personal tour with a well known guide and it was not worth the money. I think you would get the same experience with a much cheaper guide. The favorite thing from our trip was the house...loved it.

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Great house. We enjoyed our stay very much. Rooms were great, kitchen was excellent Pool was very nice to have and enjoy in the morning and the afternoon. Snorkeling in front of the house. Enjoyed the Bunches of Fun banana farm tour. Car is needed to travel to town, to grocery stores, shops and restaurants. House is as good as it looks. Teo and Melissa were great and the locals were all friendly and helpful.

Needing a break from a busy lifestyle, coming to One Particular Harbour turned out to be just what the doctor ordered! Sun, beach, pool, drinks, & great meals coupled with great friends was relaxing and rejuvenating. The property met all our needs, was well appointed and close to everything we wished to visit. A highlight was the banana farm tour which we would highly recommend. You cannot go wrong staying a this premier property.
