Absolute Pure Paradise at the Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our two weeks at this special beach house were beyond our every expectation! From the moment we were greeted by Joslin and she introduced us to all the fantastic amenities of the house and grounds, we knew we had found paradise. The house was just as described. We enjoyed the open house concept, the ocean breezes, and the expansive veranda was our favorite place to start the day watching the sunrise while having coffee; and we spent many evening hours watching sunsets and the beautiful Belizean night sky. Joslin was very kind and helpful whenever and if we needed anything. Epi brought us fresh coconut water. He keeps the property in immaculate condition. We love Placencia Village. Favorite resturants-Rick'Cafe, Secret Garden, RumFish and Wendy's. And of course Trutti Fruitti. After great days with Go Sea Tours (Silk Caye , Laughing Bird Caye & Monkey River tour), DTourz (Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve tour), Trip N Travel (Xunantunich Mayan Ruins tour), the best part was to come back to our surreal piece of paradise. The only way this experience could have been better was if we had stayed longer. And next time we definitely will. Thank you Lou and Joshlin for sharing and being the best hosts.

The beach house was perfect for my family (two adults and two young children). The property is private with plenty of space to enjoy both inside and out. The water was a bit rough at times but on calm days it was crystal clear. Lou went out of her way to ensure that we were safe and well informed during our travels.

Same as the other reviews: Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay in this house. It was exactly as advertised and this pictures showed it well. It had everything that we needed - generally in rental houses, there is at least one kitchen item we need that isn't there, but this house had it all. It was a short (15-20 min) walk at a slow pace to the point, and everything on the peninsula is between the house and that. The nearest restaurant (De Tatch) was five minute walk, and the store and pharmacy was only about a two minute walk.

Josh wasn't around during our stay, but Lou took good care of us. She seems to be a bit of a local legend; I can't remember how many people, when we told them where we were staying, said, "Oh, you're staying in Miss Lou's house - she's great!!" One of our guides even told us that, "If you grew up in Placencia, you know Miss Lou." Darwin, the handyman, was kind enough to get us a bunch of coconuts and demonstrate how to use a machete to open them, so we could just grab a coconut whenever we wanted fresh coconut water, which was awesome.

The house was very private. From the deck, we could only see the neighbor on one side, but he was pretty far away, so it felt very private.

We had a great stay, and would love to return again.

Perfect Placencia place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Just a perfect place for us! My husband and I picked this house from the description and photos for its location at the edge of town, its big beach, big deck, and pleasant, spacious interior. We were not disappointed!! It was just as we'd hoped. We used the queen bedroom and it was lovely. Lots of shelves to unpack your stuff. The sea breeze and fans kept it cool. Great kitchen and bath. Fresh coconut water was waiting in the fridge! The 2nd floor deck is large with a amazing views and hammocks! We spent so much time reading in the hammocks!! It's a short walk to restaurants and groceries, but so quiet at the house. The back "yard" is beautiful sand and palms, with a wide beach that we usually had to ourselves. So. Nice. Joshlin arranged our Xunantunitch trip and taxis to and from the airport (5 minute trip) for us. She was the best - checked on us most days and gave us advice on everything. Going back soon!

I don’t think I can add any additional info about this place that’s hasn’t already been expressed. Placencia Beach house is a slice of paradise. If you want to escape your busy life, this is the place to do it. The house is beautiful. The town is quaint and the people of Placencia are warm and welcoming. And as stated previously Lou, Joshlin and Epi are perfect hosts. My family and I enjoyed every second of our stay. Hopefully we will be back one day.

The wonderful thing about Placencia Village is you can be as high tech or laid-back as you want. There are computer repair services and internet connections or tranquil freedom from all the technology devices.

Placencia Beach House is located at the north end of the sidewalk, the world's narrowest road, in Placencia Village, within walking distance of all the restaurants, bars, and gift shops. The North end is quiet and private, but near the action. You can party all you want without a designated driver, or lie quietly in your hammock in complete privacy. The friendly villagers speak English and are always ready to lend a helping hand. Fitness training and yoga classes, as well as, spa services are available. You can explore the village on a bicycle or ride up the peninsula for lunch at Seine Bight or Maya Beach.

There are several full-service dive shops that cater to both the beginner and experienced diver. Instruction is available for certification at all levels.

Some choose to simply enjoy the snorkeling. The dozens of offshore cayes (pronounced keys) each have fringed reefs and the Belize Barrier Reef, 18 miles from Placencia, is second to none. Many of the wonders in tropical waters are only one foot below the surface.

Some claim that Placencia offers the world's best fly fishing. The fishing guides were born in Placencia and learned secrets from their fathers that have been passed down for generations. Besides catching bonefish, permit and tarpon, you can troll for kingfish and barracuda, or catch your own bait and simply hang out at the cayes with a drop line.

About 30 miles from Placencia, off the southern highway, is the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Reserve, the world's first reserve established to protect this endangered species. Don't expect to see a jaguar. but you can go river tubing, hike to the waterfalls at the top of Tiger Fern trail, or climb Victoria Peak, the highest peak in the Cockscomb!

A little further to the north on the Southern Highway, you can visit Mayflower Archaeological Reserve and hike to Antelope Falls or Bocawina Falls, or arrange with Bocawina Adventure Tours to go zip-lining through the canopy forest or repelling down the water falls.

To the south, on the Southern Highway, you can visit the archaeological ruins of Nimli Punit and Lubaantun. During the same day, you can take in the massive cave at Blue Creek Village where Maya artifacts were found by modern archaeologists.
