About Christine Hawk

Christine Hawk purchased this house in 2010

Why Christine Hawk chose Placencia Peninsula

Belize is the most amazing country. I love exploring the many natural wonders and being able to relax at my own piece of paradise on the beach.

What makes this house unique

I love this home because of it's excellent location, private but easily accessable to services and amentities. The extensive outdoor living areas and the beautiful beach, pool, ocean and amazing views give you the tranquil, relaxing vacation spot you are looking for.

We loved the house.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of open-air space and outdoor living space. Our three kids loved hanging out in the hammocks in the large, covered entry way, while I enjoyed my book in the comfy lounge chairs. The beds were a little hard, but not unbearable. We had trouble with a broken a/c remote, but Leo came right away to tend to it. And someone came to rake the beach every day so that it always looked nice! We even had Muzamanzie Photography come down to take some family pictures. The different scenery she got from the property was awesome! Overall we were very happy with the accommodations.

The ride into Placencia was longer than we thought, especially because of the many "speed humps" put down to slow the traffic. We ate at the Bistro in Maya Beach (I highly recommend it - more expensive but definitely worth it) and picked up some groceries in Maya, but we ended up driving into Placencia every day. Had more activity and was very quaint. Make sure to cut over east to the sidewalk. My 14-year old son played pick-up basketball every day at 5 or 6 with the locals, which was kinda cool. I would consider staying in Placenia if we came again just for convenience, except you get a better bang for your money and extra space and privacy at Maya. It's a toss-up. (p.s. - also recommend tutti-fruiti for gelati. We went there every day and between the 5 of us, tried almost every flavor.)

I wouldn't, personally, recommend the nearby waterfall, though. At the entrance lives a spanish family. The woman didn't know a lick of english and we struggled to communicate where to go and where to park, etc. At the gate, take the road to the left, find parking lot, and then walk a short way from there. The water was very cold, and the place to jump from was only a couple of feet high. Our teenagers were not impressed, and I would have rather have hiked in through jungle hiking paths. Should have gone to Cockscomb.

We stayed for a week with another couple. Our favorite spot was the porch.......! The views were beautiful, and water was calm and clear. Nice place , enough room for the 4 of us. Christine was very easy and nice to work with. Great place! Lots of good restaurants...and not far from a neat waterfall!

Wonderful Vacation, Beautiful, Well Equipped House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this house for our first trip to Belize. There were just to two of us, so clearly there was plenty of room. The home is beautiful, as is the beach in front of the house. When we drove up, it was clear that we had chosen the right place. The directions to the house from the airport were slightly vague and it took us a little while to find the house but once we did, we were very pleased. Regardless, I would recommend flying into Placencia rather than driving. We drove in and later decided to fly back to Belize City instead of drive which was a quick 25 minutes compared to the 3.5 hour drive.The air conditioning in the house was very sufficient, which is something that is important to us in a tropical climate. The views from all of the decks were lovely. The water in front of the house was perfectly clear depending on the weather and my husband and I enjoyed walking around and checking out the small amount of sea life near the beach. We found a couple of sand dollars, sea snails and saw some barracuda, large blue crab and even a small sting ray. There were plenty of spaces in front of the house to walk around and avoid the sea grass if that is something that bothers you. We were very pleased with the variety of restaurants and food on the Peninsula. The grocery store closest to the house had less of a selection than the one closer to Placencia. Christine provided a great list of her favorites dining spots. Some of our favorites were The Secret Garden, Mojo Lounge, Cozy Corner and Maya Beach Bistro. The caretaker, Leo, was very helpful. He checked on us multiple times during a storm that came through. And if you happen to be there during a strong storm, as we were, and the power goes out, they get it back up and running fairly quickly! Leo also set up a wonderful snorkeling trip for just the two of us. A great tour guide named Elroy took us to three different Cayes and personally caught lobsters for us as we observed and cooked them for us on Laughing Bird Caye. It was an amazing experience and if you set up trip, definitely request Elroy! We visited the waterfall that Christine suggested in the guest book and it was beautiful. We went on a Thursday afternoon and were the only people there! One thing I will mention is the temperature of the pool at the house. It is in the shade and it wasn't really very warm. I was ok with the temperature but my husband thought it was too cold, just FYI. Overall it was a wonderful experience!!!

Amazing House in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Belize property for 10 nights at the end of May into June. It was everything we expected and so much more. The pictures don't begin to describe the beauty of the house and location. My husband and I brought my mother and our 2 children and the house was perfectly set up for all of us. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kids loved the pool and they were able to snorkel off the pier. I can't recommend the property highly enough. Here are a few things I would like to share:

1. Leo is the property manager and he is amazing!!! He booked a snorkel trip, ATM cave (a must do), and a monkey river tour for us. He also delivered kayaks to our house so we could paddle out to the island in the distance. He was the best, so friendly and helpful.

2. The house has a water dispenser for purified water that you can purchase at the local market. It made life really easy.

3. Maya Beach is located at the top of the peninsula making it easy to travel around the country. Also it's only a 15 min drive to Placencia Village for shopping and dining. I feel like this house is in the perfect location.

4. Christine was very professional and quick to answer questions. She made our first trip to Belize a breeze and I would recommend her property to any of my friends or family. Her description of the property was accurate and it had all amenities listed.

We can't wait to go back and I would definitely rent this property again. Thanks Christine and Leo!

Amazing vacation location

  • 5 of 5

The beach was just perfect. Sat down at the water every morning watching the sunrise and drinking coffee. The house is very cozy with great A/C units and appliances. A short drive away from the town of Placencia and along the route there are some great restaurants. The infinity pool was always clean and refreshing. Lots of outdoor patio space to hangout with friends and family. This was my second time at this house and will continue to rent at this location.

Great home, beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Right on the ocean with a great view. Several balconies with seating on all. The weather was perfect and the beach was great. Lots of room for the three of us with two bedrooms. Great view form the master bedroom of the beach and ocean. Very nice pool at end of deck. House is in a nice area with easy access to the downtown area. A fully equipped kitchen with a charcoal grill outside made for some fine dining. Would highly recommend.
