Amazing House and Location

  • 5 of 5

Amazing House and Location!!

This is the second time that we have stayed at this house and it was even better than the first! Great location on the ocean, amazing water views from all the decks and rooms. You also have mountain views, lagoon and sunsets from the rooftop deck. The house is comfortable, good AC’s, fans, nice beds and the kitchen is well equipped. They now have a large water float anchored in the ocean that is a blast to lounge on to stay wet on warm days. We spent a lot of time at the house, paddle boarding and hanging out in the pool and the ocean float. There was a nice breeze so we had the house open all day and just closed up to use the AC at night for sleeping. The 3rd bedroom was smaller but has a new bed and was comfortable. Leo setup private trips for us to the reef for snorkeling and to the ATM cave. The reef was beautiful and we swam with turtles, sharks and rays! The ATM is a must do if you can – cool cave formations, Mayan skeletons and relics – amazing!! The Maya Beach Bistro has the best food and a great happy hour – we went there several times. The house is in a beautiful area just north of Maya Beach. The Village is a short drive; we went there for the vegetable stands, beach bars and for some shopping. All in all an Amazing trip, we can’t wait to get back; I’ve already booked this house again for next year!! Thanks Leo and Christine for being great hosts!

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Based off of the pictures, reviews and the things the owner wrote we were a little surprised when we drove up to the place and walked inside.

1. The living area of the house was very small compared to the pictures

2. The pool was always freezing cold to the point you could not even get in it due to the fact that the entire pool is in the shade and not in the sun.

3. The AC was a major problem throughout our entire stay and we were always dripping sweat when we were inside. You couldn't open the windows and doors because it was hotter outside and there was no breeze at all. The manager (Leo) stated that the owner was aware of this problem.

4. Despite what we read, nothing prepared us for the size of the third bedroom. It was so small that the two ladies staying in that room couldn't even unpack their suitcases, there was no closet and two drawers under the bed is not enough for a weeks stay. And this room remained the warmest in the house because the kitchen AC unit does not cool it.

5. The clothes dryer in the utility room has to be ran 3 times for one load to get dry and the manager Leo said this was another known problem.

6. The view of the beach from the house was beautiful but you can't get in or play in the ocean in front of the house due to the large batches of seaweed.

On a positive note the house was very clean, the house had a lot of character, the yard was full of beautiful tropical flowers and the porch overlooking the ocean was stunning! We found several great restaurants we enjoyed: Maya Beach Club, Belize Ocean Club, 1981 and the Placencia Resort.

We did take a boat tour to the Ranguana Caye Island and that was absolutely gorgeous with crystal blue water and soft white sand which we thought Belize and Placencia would look like, but it didn't. Maybe that is our fault for not doing more research on Placencia but that is the reason we would not return.

Owner's Response: Amy, Belize is a beautiful country; jungle, mountains, ocean but it is not a highly developed resort or party area like Cancun. I have not had a review like yours before and I agree that better research on your part would have given you more realistic expectations for Belize. The photo's of the house and beach have not been enhanced, it is beautiful. This house has as much outdoor living space as there is indoor living space. I'd like to respond so that future guests know that our other 30 reviews were excellent. Belize has a tropical climate, it is hot in the summer. The pool is in the shade on purpose so that it is cool and refreshing when you are hot. The deck that extends around the pool is in the sun. The AC units are new and they work really well. There are new fans inside and out that pump 9,000 CFM's. The 3rd bedroom is smaller but it has a new bed, a new ceiling fan, drawers under the bed and an end table. We stayed in this room when I was there in April - it was comfortable and was cooled by the large main AC. We are adding an additional fan and a clothes rack to this room. The clothes dryer is new within the last year and works well. The ocean around the Placencia Pennisula has sea grass which feeds the turtles and manatee. Sea grass is necessary for the ecosystem. Everyone gets in and the water is warm and calm. About a third of our ocean bottom is sandy without the sea grass. In the documents I sent out, I suggested hat you may want to bring water shoes for comfort if you are super sensitive about the sea grass. Also, you made your reservation for 4 guests and you brought 6 adults for your stay. Future guests - please see Janet's review below dated June 12th. She stayed the week prior to Amy, was very happy and had 6 Adults in the house also. Christine Hawk

A heavenly week in Belize at Casa Dela Vista

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Belize at this lovely and perfect home with our two families, including two teenagers just home from their first year in college. The setting was heavenly; on the beach, the palm trees swaying, our own dock, many hammocks, and lots of shady areas to rest and relax. The house was a perfect size and we sat on the porch every day and evening, used the roof for meditation and even had a dock where we could exercise and sit in the shade and enjoy the water and the view. Leo, the manager, was super helpful; set up our cave tours and our snorkeling to the reef - about an hour away. We ate out every night in Maya Beach or Placencia. Christine was so helpful in providing us with suggestions of things to do, places to eat, and we had paddle boards and if we wanted we could kayak nearby.

Only warning; if you're flying into Belize City, which we did, it is a long ride to Placencia. It's nearly 4 hour drive from airport cause of the roads. Would suggest flying into Placencia. If you do drive, stop at Cheers along the way for a great local meal.

I would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable home with refreshing pool and nice amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Only disappointment was the third bedroom which was an add-on room. No walls to the ceiling and no privacy and no air conditioning. Beds need new mattresses and linens. Veranda and lower deck with hammocks and lounge chairs were comfortable. Kitchen and home well-stocked and wi-fi much appreciated. Relatively close to Placencia on a good road.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at our ocean front home in Placencia. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. At the end of March 2017 we containered from the US new mattresses, linens, towels, ceiling fans etc for the home. The mattresses are high quality and very comfortable. We also have 4 inch down feather toppers on each bed. The 3rd bedroom is Caribbean style so the very top of the walls are open to the wood beamed cathedral ceilings. The wooden shutters close for privacy, this room has a new ceiling fan and can be further cooled by using the large main AC over the kitchen. We slept in this bedroom and were very comfortable when I was there in Mid-April. Thanks again. Christine

This home/location was GREAT!!! You definitely need a rental car to see all that placencia has to offer and all the places we ate at were amazing! Our favs were Green Parrot and Belize Ocean Club on the lagoon side. We ate out everyday and enjoyed every meal! Leo was BY FAR the greatest in helping us with everything/anything! We absolutely loved him to pieces! We rented a car and went to numerous places to see all that we could in a reasonable distance(mayan ruins and cave tubing) and then we took some boat trips for snorkeling and swimming with sharks. We spent 6 days here and i threw a tantrum when we had to leave. Christine was GREAT with answering questions about booking flights and what to expect and she followed up on our arrival to make sure everything was good to go. We couldn't of asked for a better experience for our first time out of the country, best honeymoon ever!
