About the property

2 Houses, each with two bedroom suites overlooking the ocean

Made up of two houses, Ginger House and Tower House, Aurora Beach offers a perfect place to stay in Placencia Village. The house, completed in 2014, is on a private oversized Beach Front lot with a pool. The location is perfect, just a ten minute walk down the beach to Placencia village with its restaurants and shops.

The homes are a contemporary comfortable style perfect for couples or families. Air conditioning in every room, WIFI, and internet are all included. Every bedroom has a full beach view, its own private tiled bathroom with two sinks, air conditioning if the breezes just don’t do it for you, and a fan overhead on the Rosa wood ceilings.

Each house has a living room open to the dining area and kitchen, furnished in comfortable modern furniture either imported from the US or handcrafted of Mahogany locally. The living rooms have large sliding glass doors that open up to each home’s veranda and look out over the pool to the ocean beyond.

Tower House is the larger of the two homes, with a roof top deck offering 360 degree views, from the sunrise over the ocean to the sunset in the mountains beyond the lagoon. There are two bedrooms upstairs, a queen bed in one, a full and a twin bed in the other. The study downstairs has a queen sized Jordan’s furniture pullout bed for extra sleeping space.

Ginger House also has two bedrooms upstairs, a queen bed in one, a full and a twin bed in the other. Both units have a washer and dryer.

About Ann Trudeau

We are from Massachusetts with three adult children that all love vacationing in Belize!

Ann Trudeau purchased this house in 2014

Why Ann Trudeau chose Placencia

We searched for a house in the right location. We wanted to be able to walk home from the town, yet not be in the busy center. This large lot was perfect. It is hard to find a home that is high end but comfortable enough to relax in. A builder by trade, we had no problem constructing the houses to meet our strict quality guidelines, importing hurricane windows from Pella in the US, using the local Mahogany craftsmen in the area for fine finishes, and personally overseeing the construction.

What makes this house unique

We love the feeling of privacy but the proximity to restaurants and shops. We also have the best caretaker in the world on the premises ensuring that the place is well maintained and secure.

The property and homes are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved all of the details, amenities and the grounds are very well thought out and maintained. The home furnishings and decor are perfectly done. You are able to stroll from the living area, on to the patio, to the pool and on to the beach at your leisure. The large side lot also provides a nice opportunity to explore for Iguanas, Birds and other wildlife under a canopy of trees. Nick does a great job of maintaining the grounds, is mindful of security and providing helpful assistance and information for guests. If only he could do something about the sand fleas. :) Some of our guests were more susceptible to the little buggers bites than others. Yes, they can be a nuisance.

You will definitely enjoy the location, as it is just a 5 to 10 minute stroll down the white sandy beach to Placencia's many shops and eateries. The property owner Ann is also most helpful providing excellent information and timely responses.

Our family was in Belize to celebrate my Mom's 70th Birthday Party. As you can tell, we had a wonderful time.

Slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled into the driveway and was greeted by Nick, til the moment we HAD to leave, our experience was unbelievable. The most beautiful property we have ever seen. Hope that we are fortunate enough to be able to return again.

Amazing Property in Placencia

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Placencia. The properties are clean and well maintained by Nick and his family. The owners are very helpful and were responsive to all of our needs and questions. The homes are centrally located and are walking distance to the town and restaurants. A fantastic vacation spot. Would definitely come back and stay here again!

First Class place

  • 5 of 5

The Placencia Peninsula was "discovered" as a great vacation destination long ago, resulting in some unfortunate development, speaking as an architect. But nestled between the McMansions of the northern part and the intact quaintness of Placencia Village in the south lie these two beach houses, beautifully designed and appointed and meticulously maintained. None of the dull cutlery, chipped crockery, and corroded plumbing of many vacation rentals. These are US owners who CARE, and they spend a lot of time there. Our extended family of 11 just returned from a week there, and it was a wonderful stay. The property is secluded and expertly maintained by the resident caretaker and his family, even to raking the sand daily. We felt quite privileged. Wish we were back there now, laying at poolside, and we've only been back for a day!

Perfect vacation in Placencia!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! We woke up in the morning looking out over the sunrise and the ocean. There was something to do every day. We hiked, snorkeled, fished, and did a couple of boat tours. Other than hiking in the jaguar preserve, we didn't need a car. Everything was a short walk. By 3pm we were home, and had our cocktail hour while floating in the pool. Then we walked up the beach to have dinner in a different open-air restaurant each night. Finally, we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf out of our windows.

We shared the two houses with other couples. Everything was lovely and comfortable: granite counter tops, double sinks in the bathrooms, gorgeous views of the coast, etc. But who wants to be inside! Each house had its own patio, where we had our morning coffee. Most of the time we were poolside, which was right on the beach!

Placencia is an awesome place. Everyone was friendly, and we felt completely safe. Occasionally locals would approach attempting to sell us things, but when we said "no, thank you", they backed right off. None of the hard sell we have seen in other Caribbean locations.

On our last night we had wine in "the tower" while we watched a gigantic full moon rise. It was a perfect ending to a perfect vacation! We will be back!

I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This estate is magical. From the first day we were so taken with how beautiful it was. The accommodations are first class and truly everything was perfect. Two couples stayed in the Ginger House. It is so clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed to enjoy the week we stayed. We cooked a couple of nights but honestly the restaurants in town were so great. We looked forward to our walk into town to enjoy dinner and some dancing. We did go and see Monkey River, we went snorkeling, we hiked to an incredible waterfall and took a ride on the Hokey Pokey ferry. But best of all was hanging and swimming at the property. We are already planning our next year back. Thank you Ann and Tom!
