Quiet and relaxing escape with beautiful surroundings...

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the house.. Edwin was great!! We booked a couple of excursions thru viator.com prior to coming.. wish we would have waited.. Edwin hooked us up and had better experiences. The weather was great... hot and humid... however bring bug spray. We all got bitten up pretty good... not so much in the house but around town at the local restaurants. Great restaurants tho!! Without having a pool or a sandy beach.. My favorite spot was at the end of the dock under the tiki hut, reading my book. Paddle boarded to the beach... was a fun experience. Would go back again !!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird House is beautiful and perfectly positioned to catch the island breeze. We had a wonderful time. The view of Placencia across the lagoon is also gorgeous, and watching the sailboats anchored in the lagoon bob with the waves is a peaceful way to end the day.

We enjoyed playing on the paddleboards, snorkeling off of the dock, and just floating in the sea. The dock provides a perfect platform for viewing rays and small fish that live in the seagrass. There is also a pod of dolphins that frequent the opening of the channel next to the house. Wendy's is a great place for breakfast. Don't miss the blackberry gelato at TutiFrutti's ice cream parlor. If you're a fisherman, Prince took my husband and son out to fish on the reef. He's a master and they had an impressive catch. There's nothing like fresh barracuda steak.

Edwin is very helpful and friendly. He even picked a few coconuts for us to enjoy with some rum!

Placencia itself has the feel of the Florida Keys. There are lots of little shops, good restaurants, and a fun nightlife. Step away from the main street and enjoy exploring the town.

Seriously amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 6 adults. The house is just lovely and spacious. While it is an open floor plan it is large enough that everyone was able to find a space of their own. The air flow was perfect and loved that there was no AC. We enjoyed absolutely everything. Edwin, his family, the dogs...made you feel comfortable and safe. Edwin set us up with Rudy for a day of fishing/snorkeling, then lunch on a deserted island. Wow. We enjoyed Rudy so much we hired him to take us to Monkey River. A day of exploring the rain forest, howler monkeys included. The most perfect vacation. The locals were wonderful and kind. If you are considering Placencia book the Hummingbird House immediately.....it was a once in a lifetime trip for us.
