About the property

Beachfront, Walk to everything, managers on site, amazing amenities!

Caribbean Beach Cabanas is the BEST place to stay in Placencia! Wonderful managers on site. If you don't stay here-you will walk by us and wish you had! We are the only boutique resort in the village, adults only, perfect for honeymoons. Private, charming, quiet, area right on the famous sidewalk, and BEACHFRONT! You will walk out your front veranda right onto the Caribbean Sea- check out our pictures! All 6 suites (max 14 people) can be rented and this would be a great way to get privacy while on a group trip. See us on Episode 2 Season 10 of Beachfront Bargain Hunt on HGTV!

Our units have A/C, WiFi, cable with flat screen, kitchenette (with breakfast bar overlooking the sea, coffee maker, fridge, microwave, blender, all the basics and more), and are ALL NEW!

Each cabana has its own private bath with tiled shower, and outdoor conch shell shower to rinse off after a swim. Please note as well that we keep our beachfront very clean and raked.

About Laura Diffendal

Laura and Dave visited Placencia, Belize in early 2014 after deciding to relocate on the beach! We are from Cleveland, OH and we fell in love with Belize. We purchased Las Amigas Cabanas and just completed renovation. Many tell us this is the best spot in Placencia. We want everyone who comes down to say, this was the best vacation ever! We have the BEST managers who live on site, Sue and Carlos, and they take great care of our guests!

I've stayed in other homes away from home but never felt so welcomed.

  • 5 of 5

How to rate such a great place. We were greeted by David at airport and felt like family. Then we we arrived at resort Laura greeted us with Lovley Rum Punch. And a wonderful smile. We were very lucky that the owners were there during our stay. Everything was in perfect order and very clean. Even the beach was groomed daily. Best way to say how much we enjoyed our stay is that we're booked for next year already. Enjoy your stay😎?😎?

Best Beach Front Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the best value beach Cabana in Placecnia. Terrific all round stayed in Luna Cabana, the views from deck are better than one can see in posted photos. One really needs to experience this jewel, private, quiet, and romantic. We did explore Placenia, snorkeled to Silk Caye and eat out 3/4 nights loved the people & food. Be sure to search out the local fisherman and buy fresh lobster!! You will need no reason to leave this glorious Cabana hideaway of pleasure it delivers so much more than the eye can see.

* Sue & Carlos property mgr are terrific they deliver more than other VBRO I have experienced or expected... Thank you!

Caribbean Beach Cabanas

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay in the Luna Cabana in early September. It was my first trip to Belize and my first solo trip. I chose the sleepy, little village of Placencia because of the culture and intimacy of the community. There is so much to do in town and in the surrounding areas. Each day was a new experience, even if I chose to spend the day in the hammock on the porch reading and watching the beautiful surf and sand. While I had no base of reference for Belize accommodations, I can't imagine a more beautiful place to stay. It was perfect. The owners, Dave and Laura, were so friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The managers, Sue and Carlos, were available every day with suggestions, helpful hints, and anything I needed. It was a wonderful week with new foods, friends, and adventures. I highly recommend any of the three cabanas as a place to relax and recuperate and enjoy all that Belize has to offer.

Private, romantic and clean accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were on site and extremely accommodating. Laura answered all of our questions and made us feel welcomed. We arrived late on a Tuesday and stayed until Saturday, occupying in the Luna cabana. It was everything we needed and more! We weren't looking for an American hotel but wanted to really soak in the Placencia experience. This place gave us just that. My partner and I went for a tour of the Monkey River one morning, got back, and took a nap out on the lovely veranda overlooking the sea. When I woke up he was there with an engagement ring! Owners even helped us celebrate with a bottle of bubbly. Can't thank everyone enough for making our stay so special =)

Amazing Stay at the Best Spot in Placencia!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Placencia for our honeymoon. This was our first time going to Belize and we were slightly worried about going out of the country. We had LOTS of questions. Laura was very prompt at responding to ALL of our questions and have excellent information on her blog and through e-mail. They arranged to have picked up at the airport, and the managers and host were the absolute nicest. They showed us around the breathtaking property, and made sure we were completely at home before leaving. They gave us a cell phone with local numbers and a binder full of great information about what to do while visiting. Which came quite in handy! The owners or managers would check in with us everyday. Even though Placencia was beautiful, we hardly left our cabana, because they were so amazing! I highly highly recommend this property to anyone who is planning on coming to Belize. So relaxing!!!
