Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Caribbean Way Villa is a 5 Star upscale three-story Mediterranean Style home with Italian Travertine Marble Interiors sitting on its own private beach in Placencia, Belize. Great attention to detail has been paid to this home to ensure the best experience and vacation possible for guests. The home was constructed in 2007 and has recently been purchased by a new owner. It has undergone extensive upgrades since then to make sure that it not only meets expectations, but exceeds them.

Please let us know if you would like to have your wedding on our beach and pier. Our caretakers do an incredible job of decorating the beach.

This home includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus double futons. The master suite, located on the second floor, includes a king-sized bed, lounge area with satellite television, wet bar with mini fridge, private balcony with fantastic ocean views, private travertine bathroom with custom hand painted double sinks, large jetted tub, walk-in rain shower, and a walk-in closet. The two additional bedrooms on the first floor each include a king-sized bed, a custom double futon, custom built-in vanity, and seating area as well as a private double-door entrance from the rear of the house. The bath on the main floor is all travertine with a custom hand-painted sink, and a gentle walk-in rain shower. The third floor is reserved for fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains and rainforest. Two sets of double doors open to a wrap-around porch, providing a stunning 360 degree view. This is the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the ocean and mountains with music and a relaxing drink in hand.

Rental of this home includes access to a large private pier with custom lighting, built-in bar and custom mahogany table and chairs. The middle of the pier is thatch covered (Palapa) while the two outer sections are open, providing guests the option of relaxing in the shade or catching some sun with the tranquil sound of the ocean beneath them. The stars at night on the pier seem so close that you could reach out and touch them.

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked and includes granite counters and a custom island, copper sinks and fixtures, a double-door stainless steel refrigerator, stainless gourmet stove and oven, stainless dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, blender, citrus juicer, can opener, toaster, waffle maker, Nutribullet, juicer, and coffee maker. Free great-tasting bottled water is always available for guests from the dispenser in the kitchen. For guest's convenience after a long day of traveling, upon arrival the main refrigerator will be partially stocked with bottled water, sodas, and light snacks available for purchase. The living area includes a comfortable sectional couch with additional seating and a flat screen television with cable. Wi-fi and high-speed internet are also included in the rental of this property.

The home is maintained by conscientious, active owners who are committed to ensuring that it remains immaculate and updated. The onsite, experienced staff is English-speaking and available to guests for the entire duration of their stay to make sure that their visit is comfortable and hassle-free. The location of this property is superb; although Placencia is a narrow Peninsula the home is located on a private development road directly off the main road. The new owner has purchased, cleared, and sanded the neighboring lots at considerable expense providing a perfect balance of privacy. A cool shady coconut grove a few steps to the South or the North on the beach have gently swaying and relaxing hammocks.

Guests need not worry if this is their first time to the peninsula - the owners provide a custom informational email before you travel plus a book which includes phone numbers and locations of local entertainment and restaurants. If snorkeling, scuba, or fishing or island hopping are on your list of things to do, a private boat can be arranged to pick you up directly from the pier. At the end of your trip, have a relaxing drink while the captain prepares your catch of the day. Lunch for these day trips can be provided by the onsite staff if ordered the night before and waiting on the pier in ice chests the day of your adventure.

Nearby are excellent gourmet beachside restaurants including one of the best in the Caribbean, grocery stores, tennis, fitness center, country club resort amenities, and huge refreshing swimming pools available exclusively to our guests.

Access to the property is simple, guests can drive a gorgeous route from Belize City with stunning rainforest views, or take a 35 minute flight via Maya or Tropic Airlines from Belize International Airport to the Placencia Airport.

The Beach Villa is located on the Placencia Peninsula, Stann Creek District in Southern Belize. Here at Caribbean Way Villa you will find clear blue waters, soft sandy beaches known as the best beaches in Belize. If you decide to trade in the beach towels and swaying in the hammocks for a bit of adventure, the second largest reef in the world awaits with world class fishing, snorkeling, and diving.

You Better Belize it...

  • 5 of 5

Put this home on your bucket list...we had the vacation of a life time. We have takin yachts with captains, chefs and tour guides along with a million curses and rented homes around the world. This was a very unique vacation, the grounds keepers knew where to eat, fish, waterfalls, river rafting, stores for food, ruins, zip lining, even cooked our family a delicious Belizean meal. The home was spectacular...We loved Belize and the wonderful people who made this vacation, one of a kind, that my family will never forget! The home owner is a great guy!!! We will be back...

UnBelizeable!

  • 5 of 5

We had an epic Belize vacation. Six of us stayed recently and enjoyed the home very much. It is a beautiful, clean and well appointed home on the beach. The master bedroom on the second floor offered great views of the sunrise and every accommodation you need. The two other bedrooms on the first floor were also well appointed and had a convenient vanity area. It took us about 3 hours to get there from the airport.

The caretakers were very helpful. Lus cooked us a special Belizean meal that was an excellent way to end a long day of snorkeling.

We did many excursions such as snorkeling, zip lining, waterfall repelling, Monkey River tour, river tubing and Spice Farm. We also spent a day at the Belize Ocean Club enjoying the pool and drinks on the beach. Wish we had more time. The guide we used was recommended by the owner and his name is Junior. He was great. He knows the area inside and out.

I must say, every person we met from Belize was very nice, willing to help and not pushy like in some of the Caribbean islands.

We never had a bad meal, all of the restaurants were excellent and reasonably priced. Best meal was probably at Rumfish in Placencia but it is not on the water. The town of Placencia is a little bit of a distance and took about a half an hour by car to get there, mostly due to the speed bumps. The Maya Beach Bistro is also very good and located a bit closer in Maya Beach. We even went bowling at the local bowling alley...best pizza.

The owner Norman, was very helpful making suggestions and provided a useful informational packet. He was very willing to talk to us before the trip as we organized our plans.

Greatest Place on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

Wow...where do I start! I booked Caribbean Way Villa five months in advance and received every bit of information one would possibly need from the owners, Norman and Lynn Phillips. I was equipped with directions to the villa, local flights, restaurants, land excursions, sea tours and many more tourist activities. Our 11-day stay was fabulous....my family enjoyed this beautiful home's amenities from spacious rooms, to a modern kitchen, to wifi and AC and most desirable, the sweetest dock I've ever stepped foot on! My college daughter took advantage of flying in and out on Maya Island airlines (Placencia airport is about 15 minutes away) while we rented a car from Belize City airport (easy 3 hour scenic drive)...so, traveling around was very simple. We spent half our trip hanging out on the dock, kayaking and swimming. Our day trip to the barrier reef and all it's wonders was a first for my family...words cannot explain nature's beauty and elegance seen while snorkeling with sea turtles, nurse sharks, an infinite amount of fish species (particularly blow fish) and coral. We were picked up on the dock by Junior...this is one serious local captain with a lifetime of knowledge when it comes to navigating the reef, islands and fishing spots. The village offers a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlor, multiple grocery stores so, plenty of options for dining and picking up supplies. Just down the road, we visited Placencia Hotel and Belize Ocean Club for drinks by the pool and beach. Finally, we had the convenience of caretakers, Las and Ellsworth...if you needed anything or had questions or just wanted to learn about Belize, you could always count on these wonderful folks! My family had such a wonderful time...we all cannot wait to head back to the greatest place on earth!

Maya Beach Luxury Beach rental review

  • 4 of 5

Norman was incredibly helpful and readily available to answer any and all questions. Onsite family were delightful and also very helpful with all things related to the house and property. Home is absolutely beautiful, spacious and very clean. Easy access to Wifi and kitchen was completely full with everything we could possibly need such as blender, juicer, coffee maker, pots and pans, etc.

Dock was fabulous for sitting and sunning. Very private beach area though not much for walking. Once you get past the small area in front of the house, there is considerable trash on the beach especially plastics which was disheartening. Unfortunately, it was incredibly windy the last three days of our visit. This kept us from being able to swim, snorkel or fish at the house so if it's calm, better take advantage of home based activities. Otherwise, go inland. We did have a great excursion out fishing and snorkeling from a connection the owner, Norman provided.

Food at nearby restaurants was very good especially Maya Beach Bistro. All is all, a very wonderfully relaxing place to rent but again, don't count on being able to swim or snorkel from the house if it's windy.

Loved the House and Caretakers !!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the view. The sun would come up about 5-5:30am right in the master bedroom windows and doors. I just loved waking up that way each morning. The caretakers, Lus & Elsworth, were wonderful. I miss Lus and her son's cooking on the new grill that Norman purchased. Fresh fish and lobster caught that day, on the grill that night, can't ask for anything better!

Beautiful Belize and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 week vacation to Belize was an incredible and wonderful experience and was made that much better by Norman and his beautiful home in Placencia. Norman was a pleasure to work with and very responsive to our requests and questions. We spoke several times over the phone prior to our arrival to answer all of my questions and Norman was a great resource to all of the best places to eat/tours in the area. Norman's directions from the international airport to the house were very accurate and easy to follow. Upon our arrival at the house Lus the caretaker was waiting for us to let us into the home and show us everything we needed. I also can not say enough positive things about her and her family. They were never intrusive but were more than willing to answer any questions with directions, hints and setting up snorkel tours with a local guide who came right to the home's dock to pick us up for a day on the ocean. Lus and her husband spent a good 30 minutes on a Saturday morning trying to find the closest medical clinic that was open for an ear infection.

The home itself is fantastic. It is large and very comfortable with great A.C., large bedrooms with great king sized beds, and a wonderful dock. The master suite is huge and comparable to what you would expect from a suite in most 5 star Vegas resorts. The master is on the second floor which was nice as it gave ourselves and teenage daughters our own separate spaces at the end of the day (each of them having their own large room with a king sized bed). The home was very clean and I loved the large fluffy towels in the bathrooms. Lus came in several times throughout our stay to wash the towels and wash/change the sheets on the bed but she was willing to clean daily if we asked. We also appreciated having the washer and dryer as it saved packing space for 14 days.

We spent several days just hanging out on the dock enjoying the comfortable lounge chairs and ocean waves. As far as the location of the home, it is less than a 10 minute drive to Maya beach and it's grocery store and restaurants. It is also very close to the Placencia Resort and its huge pool which we took advantage of several times as staying in Norman's home allows you to access the resort.

I highly recommend it, Norman is great to work with and the home itself is very nice, you will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here.
