  • You will not find a better place!!!!

    "I don't know where to begin, the morning sunset or the 3 min ride from the airport. This was place was amazing. I visited Belize for the 2016 Carnival festivities and this place was absolutely everything we needed. Watching the morning sunrise while having coffee on the balcony of the master bedroom or breakfast out on the deck. We took a 30 min drive out to ALTUN HA to visit the Mayan ruins. We went to several parades and concerts in the city which turned out to be only a 10 min drive so we were never far from anything. I highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to Belize. Even if most of your time will be spent in the city, this would still be a better choice than any of the hotels."

  • AMAZING!

    "We loved everything about our stay... the grounds are breathtaking and 8B is the PERFECT unit with beautiful views of the beach and the ocean. The unit was well stocked in the kitchen with utensils and dishes, a coffee maker, and full sized fridge. The bedrooms were spacious and with an attached bath for each, they were perfect. Placencia is a quiet town, but has great restaurants to try. The groundskeepers are very pleasant and always ensuring that the property is in pristine shape. I look forward to coming back to Los Porticos again in the future!"

  • Truly Paradise - comfortable, clean, great service, excellent location

    "Never having been to Belize before, my daughter and I took a stab in the dark on this property and were very happy with our choice. There are plenty of cheaper places available, but this was worth the price we paid. It's well managed by Nellie's Property: Nellie reached out shortly after our booking to set up our flights from Belize City to San Pedro (no upcharge for that), met us upon arrival and took us to the property, brought my suitcase to me the next day when the airline finally delivered it, and were very responsive whenever we had a question. The condo is very clean, with daily maid service, and includes everything you need, and everything worked. There's an A/C unit and ceiling fan in the living room and also in the bedroom. The description said it didn't have beach towels but there were two there when we stayed. I'm glad I brought my own, though, as it takes a long time for anything to dry in that climate so with 4 towels we always had 2 dry ones. It's one of only about 8 units on the property with an unobstructed ocean view. The property is beautiful with meticulously maintained landscaping and pool; really the best we saw in the area. We loved that we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. It's very close to two grocery stores (we recommend the K-Mart, aka Caye Mart), and lots of bars and restaurants (we enjoyed drinks and lunch several times at the Sand Bar, a few steps north of the property). And, best of all, we loved Chuck & Robbie's Dive Shop, just a few steps north of the property. We did a total of 7 dives with them, including a night dive, all of which were fantastic. Robbie is great as are all of the dive masters. He doesn't offer dives to the Blue Hole so he sent us to Amigo's del Mar, just a few steps south of the property, and they provided a fabulous day at the Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye. FYI, the fishing outfits and dive shops all give a 10-12% discount if you pay cash with either U.S. or Belize dollars. I wish I had brought more U.S. dollars (at least $1,000 USD) so I didn't have to pay the exchange fee at the ATM. But I digress - this property is fabulous and I highly recommend it."

  • Beautiful Place and Secluded Getaway - Look No Further!

    "Ocean's Edge had a magical pull for both my boyfriend and I. We were looking for a private getaway, without being in a hotel chain, where we were able to call our retreat our "home away from home" and it was just that. When we arrived, we were the only guests and had the private beach to ourselves for a few days prior to our neighbor checking into their house (two houses share the beach) and surprise, it was Virginia - a guest who has stayed at these houses a few times and we couldn't have lucked out with a better neighbor! Although we had a neighbor, we still felt like it was our very own private special place and it was great to also have the resources of someone who had been here before and knew the lay of the land! Every morning, my boyfriend and I found ourselves waking up right before sunrise to witness some of the most beautiful sunrises from the cozy chairs or hammocks under the pilapa, before finding ourselves slowly getting ready to do anything or nothing at all. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed the fresh coconuts, figuring out how to husk them and then cook with them as well. We did utilize the bicycles as well as the kayaks during our stay and would advise guests to do so as well. If you are staying here, and are looking to go into town (Placencia) at all, either rent a car or just learn the bus schedule. The bus schedule is super easy to learn and is super cheap ($2 one way into Placencia, the stop is across the street from the houses) but please bear in mind that the last trip going back to Maya Beach leaves Placencia at 2:30pm. Ocean's Edge Beach Houses is literally one dock away from the best restaurant, Maya Beach Bistro, that we ate at and we felt like we lived there for happy hour daily and fell in love with their staff who welcomed us like we were locals. Staying at Ocean's Edge has spoiled me and it is hard to find future accommodations in other countries as my expectations are now really high. Thank you for being great to work with throughout my planning process, Frankie, as she was patient with me while planning this trip as I had plenty of questions from the get go! We can't wait for our return back to Belize and Ocean's Edge! I am still dreaming of Belize..."
