Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • Belize Navidad!

    "Three of us stayed here for Christmas and none of us could stop talking about when we will come back. Francisco, the groundskeeper, was incredibly funny, thoughtful and reliable. The location feels safe and is just far enough from town to be secluded, but close enough to be convenient to walk, bike, or drive a golf cart to. We fished also and went out with Alfred who was spectacular and put us on enough fish to feed us and about a hundred other people."

  • Great Family Vacation

    "This was our first trip to Belize. Having never been it's a little hard to decide where stay and didn't really know what to expect. We didn't want big crowds so we chose the Placencia penninsula. As a family of 5 we opt for house rentals instead of hotels. It was very easy to book with Ken and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you need 5 star resorts, this isn't the place. But if you want clean, affordable, well-equipped, and in a great location, this is perfect! Maya Beach turned out to be ideal because we could walk to the local store and a few restaurants. We had a rental car so it was an easy drive into Placencia and we were able to get to other activities like hiking in Cockscomb and cave tubing/ziplining. The home itself had everything we needed. The beach is kept clean and it was so quiet that we felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. The porch isn't screened anymore and the kayaks next door are only available for rent and not included. There isn't much to see in the water off the beach but the water was so warm we just didn't mind. We went snorkeling out at Laughing Bird Caye one day. We had a few power outages from storms and the home didn't have any supplies for that but we were able to get a candle from a neighbor. The lightening storms were a show all by themselves! We were very happy with our stay and enjoyed a wonderful week of family time."

  • More than we expected

    "I have to say that our hosts are very gracious. Jim picked us up at the airport and then showed us around town before taking us to our place. When we walked into our waterfront studio we were stunned. It was beautiful and very spacious. Our hosts further provided a cell phone with numbers already on the phone. They also provided the transportation upon leaving to the airport. This was more than generous of them to take the time with this. The studio has a full kitchen, with living room area available. Laundry facilities right on site in fact just out your door. The bed and bedding are clean and comfortable. There is a queen bed, one single and a double futon. You will have a private deck or you can sit out on the pier and lounge or swim. They provide beach towels, kayaks, bicycles, and it has a safe for your valuables. While we were there the birds were nesting and we had their music to wake up to with baby birds leaving their nests. ( A little noisy but we enjoyed) It is only minutes to downtown but I would suggest that you get a cart if you are going to go to town often especially if it is during the day (between 9 am and 5pm) It is very hot. We walked (which is not far or hard) but if you do that make sure to do it early or later in the afternoon when the sun is going down. And take your water.... The views from the deck or pier are of the canal and mangroves it is a beautiful setting to just enjoy. We actually only went to town if needed for groceries, eating out, or on a trip. We spent a couple of days just lounging on the pier. Truly restful. The sunsets are spectacular. We were there during Easter weekend and thankfully this property is not located in the downtown area, so downtown noise does not disturb your peace. Make sure to have your bug spray because early morning or at dusk the no see ums and the mosquitoes come out. But to be truthful we did not suffer from them too much. It was about 20 minute walk to Yoli's where we caught DaytripperDan for the catamaran snorkeling trip. About 10 minute walk to the M&M gas station to catch Barebones Monkey River trip with Percy And we were picked up and dropped off at our personal pier by Mark from Cayequest for a snorkeling trip to Pumpkin Caye How could it get any better than that. Trust me when I say this was a gem of a place and I truly appreciate the care our hosts took in our welfare. I hope to go back again. Thank you Jim and Cindy for a fabulous vacation...."

  • Perfect stay for a family or group of friends

    "We stayed at Three Iguanas Feb/2016 for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is located in a very nice neighborhood at the edge of Placencia village. There are only 2 streets with a waterfront docks and Three Iguana is on one of them. Three Iguanas is a beautiful, modern, 3 storey house. Owners live on the second floor while renting out 1st floor and a suite on the 3rd floor. The house itself is very conveniently located. It takes only 5 minutes walking to the beach bar or a restaurant like Barefoot or Tipsy Tuna. Only 3 minutes to the grocery store. 3 minutes to the bank/ATM. Only 4 minutes to the pristine, beautiful, white sandy beach. We like that the house is not in the center of the village as it is peaceful and quiet there during the evening, so you can relax with a favorite book while gazing on the water from the dock. We also enjoyed swimming right off the dock. Annelise is the new owner of Three Iguanas and the friendliest, most kind host we have ever encountered. Annelise and Doyle live in the house on the second floor and were always available if we needed anything. Annelise even loaned us a phone so we could contact her at any time - she always responded immediately! They were so gracious , they invited us for a home cooked dinner on the night of our arrival and my daughter said that Doyle makes the best BBQ chicken she had ever had :-) Because of some changes in our travel plan, we arrived to Placencia 2 days earlier. Luckily Three Iguanas had first floor studio available for those two nights, however with only a queen bed in it. As there are 3 of us, Annelise bought !!!! the futon bed, so our child had a bed to sleep on. We stayed in a two bedroom suite for another 5 days and loved it as much as our smaller studio. All rooms are spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and with very comfortable beds and squeaky clean bed sheets and towels. Overall, we had an amazing, unforgettable stay at Three Iguanas thanks to Annelise and Doyle our gracious hosts. If you're lucky, Doyle will climb a tree and cut you a fresh coconut to drink! We plan to go back to Placencia and when we do, we want to stay at Three Iguanas again as our stay was perfect in all the possible ways. Thank you Annelise and Doyle for making our stay an amazing experience. You made us feel so much welcomed and"
