Paradise in Placencia!
Right from our first communication with Joshlin, my husband and I knew this was going to be a good vacation home to rent......we didn't expect it to be as outstanding as it was!!
The location is prime with the boardwalk just step from the house that brings you into town. There is a grocery store a few minutes walk up the driveway, although as Joshlin pointed out, eating out tends to be less expensive than buying food to cook at the house.
We did buy fresh fruit the days it was delivered to have for breakfast and of course beer and rum for those relaxing times on the deck or lounging in the beach chairs by the edge of the ocean :)
The one small negative which could have simply been a timing issue with our trip, it that there seemed to be a lot of people travelling with their dogs who would bark during the day when we were trying to take in all that nature has to offer at the Placencia Beach House. This in no way reflects our opinion of the house, the location, or the top notch service we received!
Despite the fact that my husband and I are very low maintenance, Joshlin was always around if/when we needed to ask her something but kept her distance allowing us the privacy we were looking for.
We have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean using VRBO rentals and this little Piece of Paradise definitely ranks in our top 3!!
Thank you again Joshlin for sharing your wonderful piece of Paradise in Placencia with my husband and I! We will definitely see you again in our future excursions!

Love Placencia Beach House!
Cute and rustic beach house located on THE most beautiful lot in the whole area. We felt very fortunate to have chosen this property, as some of the beach further south was pretty gross (sargassum/trash) for the first part of the week. This area seems to get a lot less and we enjoyed the beach and ocean from day 1. The deck and hammocks are an oasis and the huge "front yard" is gorgeously maintained. The interior is nicely kept, but not so fancy that you are afraid of ruining anything after coming off the beach - the perfect combination of functional and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked and the manager keeps you in supply of delicious fresh coconut water. No AC, but not needed - lots of fans and ocean breezes. Great selection of books, movies and games. Joshlin has though of just about everything to make for a great beach getaway. All the little things that some rentals neglect are not overlooked here (umbrellas, coffee filters, first aid kit, bug repellant, cooler, etc. - the list goes on and on).The only thing I would improve is the lighting. The kitchen, dining area and bathroom are very brightly/harshly lit which can make it tricky for night owls or early risers to not disturb others. Maybe a few smaller lamps or lower wattage bulbs? I'd also recommend earplugs for light sleepers as there are some neighborhood dogs who bark very early (but I don't think there is any escaping this in Placencia). Overall we loved the Placencia Beach House and can't wait to return. We scoped out a lot of other places while walking around and just kept saying how lucky we were and that we were staying in the BEST place in Placencia!
A true beach vacation
This is what staying at the beach is supposed to be. Great outdoor space, expansive beach, close walk to great food and a true beach town. The house is not isolated from its environment, its part of it in the best possible ways. If you want A/C and room service, look elsewhere. Towns like Placencia and this beach house are hard to find and harder to retain. Live it and love it while you can.
Beautiful property to enjoy life on the beach
Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids, ranging in age from 5-12) stayed at the Placencia Beach House in December 2019 for almost the entire month. We absolutely loved our time in Placencia, and it was in no small part due to this beautiful space and welcoming host. The location is perfect- far from the noisy bars but still a short walk away from everything you could want.
First off, the house itself is beautiful. So clean, very nicely decorated, and lots of windows. My kids got a kick out of the fact that no room was completely closed off, but of course that means that you get great airflow and the space stays cool even without A/C. The kitchen was well appointed. It was great to have reusable shopping bags available for our trips to Top Value and the fruit market. The expansive beach front and grown palm trees gives a sense of privacy, and in fact it is hard to see onto the porch when you are by the water. We made good use of the laundry and loved getting to hang dry our clothes.
We swam in the sea almost everyday. I recommend bringing snorkel masks for comfort in the salt water. We would see fish and sand rays without having to go deep. The washed up shells and coral were cool finds for the kids.
I highly recommend: waking early to catch sunrise on the beach and for a quiet beach walk, Mim's restaurant for stew chicken, Brewed Awakenings for donuts and seaweed smoothies, Top Value for groceries, Sunnyside Tours for snorkel trips, Cha Chi's for the Kriol pizza, and Tutti Frutti for ice cream. It really is so good! We ate a lot of street food while in Placencia and never got sick, so if you are feeling adventurous also give the home cooking a try.
We used William's Shuttle Service to get to Placencia from the airport and were so pleased with the experience we booked it again on the way back. We decided to stop at the Belize zoo on our return trip and it ended up being one of the best experiences of the whole vacation.
Last but certainly not least, we know our time in Placencia was as special as it was because of Joshlyn. She knows so much about Placencia, and had recommendations and advice for us no matter the topic. She was available and responsive to our questions- before and during our trip. I am so glad we had the chance to learn about Belize from her.
Den vidunderlige ting ved Placencia Village er, at du kan være så højteknologisk eller afslappet, som du vil. Der er computereparationstjenester og internetforbindelser eller rolig frihed fra alle teknologienheder.
Placencia Beach House ligger i den nordlige ende af fortovet, verdens smaleste vej, i Placencia Village, inden for gåafstand fra alle restauranter, barer og gavebutikker. Den nordlige ende er stille og privat, men nær handlingen. Du kan feste alt hvad du vil uden en udpeget driver, eller ligge roligt i din hængekøje i fuldstændig privatliv. De venlige landsbyboere taler engelsk og er altid klar til at give en hjælpende hånd. Fitness-træning og yogakurser samt spafaciliteter er tilgængelige. Du kan udforske landsbyen på en cykel eller køre op ad halvøen til frokost ved Seine Bight eller Maya Beach.
Der er flere dykkebutikker med fuld service, der imødekommer både den begyndende og den erfarne dykker. Instruktion er tilgængelig til certificering på alle niveauer.
Nogle vælger blot at nyde snorklen. De snesevis af offshore-kajer (udtalt nøgler) har hver kantede rev og Belize Barrier Reef, 18 miles fra Placencia, er uden sidestykke. Mange af vidundere i tropiske farvande er kun en fod under overfladen.
Nogle hævder, at Placencia tilbyder verdens bedste fluefiskeri. Fiskeguiderne blev født i Placencia og lærte hemmeligheder fra deres fædre, der er blevet overbragt i generationer. Udover at fange bonefish, tilladelse og tarpon, kan du trold efter kungsfisk og barracuda eller fange din egen lokkemad og blot hænge ud på kajerne med en dråbe linje.
Cirka 30 miles fra Placencia, ud for den sydlige motorvej, ligger Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Reserve, verdens første reserve oprettet for at beskytte denne truede art. Forvent ikke at se en jaguar. men du kan gå med flodrør eller vandre til vandfaldene på toppen af Tiger Fern-stien.
Lidt længere mod nord på den sydlige motorvej kan du besøge Mayflower Archaeological Reserve og vandre til Antelope Falls eller Bocawina Falls, eller arrangere med Bocawina Adventure Tours om at gå med lynlås gennem baldeskoven eller afvise vandfaldet.
Mod syd på den sydlige motorvej kan du besøge de arkæologiske ruiner af Nimli Punit og Lubaantun. I løbet af samme dag kan du tage den massive hule ved Blue Creek Village, hvor Maya-artefakter blev fundet af moderne arkæologer.
