Three bedroom home with large decks, its own dock and palapa right on the sea!
This is a unique property on the Placencia peninsula, custom designed from the ground up. It is a three bedroom home on the ocean with lots of open plan living space.
This is a fenced, gated property with mature trees, including Coconut trees, Mangoes, Seagrape, Cocoplum and more. The gardens lead down to the beach, and out onto the dock, which has its own palapa at the end. There are steps that can be lowered into the water allowing easy access for swimming and playing around in the sea. Back underneath the building is a freshwater shower so you can rinse yourself off before going back into the house.
The house is raised on stilts/pilings for increased air flow. On the first level there are two huge bedrooms - one with two twin beds, and one with a queen bed. The bathroom on this level is shared, with a separate toilet. There is also a washer/dryer here for your use, and plenty of spare linens.
The large open plan living area includes a kitchen, dining area, lounge and stairs to the upper level.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the fixtures and fittings you need. There is a dishwasher, 36inch Frigidaire oven, stainless steel/cast iron stove top, fridge/freezer plus a separate full freezer. All crockery and cookware is also provided. There is plenty of workspace for preparation, including a separate island.
The lounge area has an abundance of seating, including two sofas that convert to double sleepers. The dining and living areas have panoramic windows and doors opening onto the wraparound porch. There are table and chairs out here for you to enjoy the seabreeze and the views. In addition to the huge porch, there is also a screened in porch with a second dining area, bench and hammock - a perfect spot to spend the afternoons.
The custom designed stairs lead to a den area that can be used as an play area or office area. There is a futon here that can used as extra bedroom space. Skylights that can open provide light and air.
The master bedroom is also on this upper level. It has a King bed, dresser and bedside tables and it has its own private deck. There is an ensuite bathroom with two vanities, separate toilet and shower.
The house was custom designed, with all wood build - it has a chalet feel but on the ocean - a true one-of-a-kind here in Placencia.

nice and relaxing
the woodwork was beautiful in the home and we enjoyed our stay. There were 6 adults and the house was big enough for all
A lovely home on the water, with room for family and friends.
The home is very well suited to families with lots of space for everyone to get away and then to gather when wanted. Melissa was great, very accommodating for our group as we needed to arrive early. We loved that we could drink the water and not worry. And it was wonderful having a washer and dryer to clean up before we left.
The water was unusually rough with all the weather Belize has had, but we enjoyed the dock and palapa, and the breeze kept the bugs to a minimum. The distance from restaurants was great, you felt very secluded, but it was easy to run to the store or go to dinner.
The house is older. It's been worn by sun, sand and wind, plus we had lots of geckos chirping us to sleep and leaving evidence of their passage. This was not a problem for us, but if you are squeamish or need something new and sparkling, this isn't the house for you. If you're looking for a place to put your feet up, enjoy some sand and sun, and hang comfortably with your family, then it was delightful. We loved the sun porch and the huge deck. I would most definitely visit again.
Great location and experience, a few minor issues
We loved the property, but had few minor issues - the bathrooms and kitchen were not as clean as we would have liked them to be when we arrived. Also, we had a rodent dropping problem. Word to the wise - sand fleas are an issue all over Belize, but they were not any worse here than other places.
Thank you for writing a review, I am sorry you felt the house was not clean enough, we could have sent a housekeeper in to address this if you had let me know.
The droppings are actually from geckos - a part of Caribbean life. They find their way into every home, generally live near the ceilings, where they help keep the big population down by eating the mosquitoes. Harmless and cute, but they do create droppings.
Christmas trip 2015
This trip was truly memorable. It was the first international trip for our kids, met brother's girlfriend and spent great time with the grandparents. We toured the jungle and saw the ruins as planned. We snorkels off the bird sanctuary island. We had a chef cook for us on Christmas Eve and haven't stopped talking about that experience. The home was clean, roomy and provided dir ct access to the beach, peri and lovely gazebo. The people throughout the village were helpful, delightful and charming. This rental was further from the village than a short walk, so rent a car. But the location was the perfect balance of solitude and convenient. We loved it!
This home is located right on the Caribbean Sea, with your own dock and palapa allowing you to sunbath and swim straight from your property. The Placencia Hotel and Residences is just a couple hundred yards south, with a large pool, tennis courts and restaurants available to you (with reservations). The village of Maya Beach is 2 miles south, with a variety of bars and restaurants, and to the north you have a short drive to the mainland, where you can go explore the rainforest and Mayan ruins. We are happy to help plan your vacation, with as much or little activity as you want.
