Caribbean Way Villa is a 5 Star upscale three-story Mediterranean Style home with Italian Travertine Marble Interiors sitting on its own private beach in Placencia, Belize. Great attention to detail has been paid to this home to ensure the best experience and vacation possible for guests. The home was constructed in 2007 and has recently been purchased by a new owner. It has undergone extensive upgrades since then to make sure that it not only meets expectations, but exceeds them.
Please let us know if you would like to have your wedding on our beach and pier. Our caretakers do an incredible job of decorating the beach.
This home includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus double futons. The master suite, located on the second floor, includes a king-sized bed, lounge area with satellite television, wet bar with mini fridge, private balcony with fantastic ocean views, private travertine bathroom with custom hand painted double sinks, large jetted tub, walk-in rain shower, and a walk-in closet. The two additional bedrooms on the first floor each include a king-sized bed, a custom double futon, custom built-in vanity, and seating area as well as a private double-door entrance from the rear of the house. The bath on the main floor is all travertine with a custom hand-painted sink, and a gentle walk-in rain shower. The third floor is reserved for fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains and rainforest. Two sets of double doors open to a wrap-around porch, providing a stunning 360 degree view. This is the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the ocean and mountains with music and a relaxing drink in hand.
Rental of this home includes access to a large private pier with custom lighting, built-in bar and custom mahogany table and chairs. The middle of the pier is thatch covered (Palapa) while the two outer sections are open, providing guests the option of relaxing in the shade or catching some sun with the tranquil sound of the ocean beneath them. The stars at night on the pier seem so close that you could reach out and touch them.
The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked and includes granite counters and a custom island, copper sinks and fixtures, a double-door stainless steel refrigerator, stainless gourmet stove and oven, stainless dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, blender, citrus juicer, can opener, toaster, waffle maker, Nutribullet, juicer, and coffee maker.

For guest's convenience after a long day of traveling, upon arrival the main refrigerator will be partially stocked with bottled water, sodas, and light snacks available for purchase. The living area includes a comfortable sectional couch with additional seating and a flat screen television with cable. Wi-fi and high-speed internet are also included in the rental of this property.
The home is maintained by conscientious, active owners who are committed to ensuring that it remains immaculate and updated. The onsite, experienced staff is English-speaking and available to guests for the entire duration of their stay to make sure that their visit is comfortable and hassle-free. The location of this property is superb; although Placencia is a narrow Peninsula the home is located on a private development road directly off the main road. The new owner has purchased, cleared, and sanded the neighboring lots at considerable expense providing a perfect balance of privacy. A cool shady coconut grove a few steps to the South or the North on the beach have gently swaying and relaxing hammocks.
Guests need not worry if this is their first time to the peninsula - the owners provide a custom informational email before you travel plus a book which includes phone numbers and locations of local entertainment and restaurants. If snorkeling, scuba, or fishing or island hopping are on your list of things to do, a private boat can be arranged to pick you up directly from the pier. At the end of your trip, have a relaxing drink while the captain prepares your catch of the day. Lunch for these day trips can be provided by the onsite staff if ordered the night before and waiting on the pier in ice chests the day of your adventure.
Nearby are excellent gourmet beachside restaurants including one of the best in the Caribbean, grocery stores, tennis, fitness center, country club resort amenities, and huge refreshing swimming pools available exclusively to our guests.
Access to the property is simple, guests can drive a gorgeous route from Belize City with stunning rainforest views, or take a 35 minute flight via Maya or Tropic Airlines from Belize International Airport to the Placencia Airport.

Loved the house and the view. The sun would come up about 5-5:30am right in the master bedroom windows and doors. I just loved waking up that way each morning. The caretakers, Lus & Elsworth, were wonderful. I miss Lus and her son's cooking on the new grill that Norman purchased. Fresh fish and lobster caught that day, on the grill that night, can't ask for anything better!
Our 2 week vacation to Belize was an incredible and wonderful experience and was made that much better by Norman and his beautiful home in Placencia. Norman was a pleasure to work with and very responsive to our requests and questions. We spoke several times over the phone prior to our arrival to answer all of my questions and Norman was a great resource to all of the best places to eat/tours in the area. Norman's directions from the international airport to the house were very accurate and easy to follow. Upon our arrival at the house Lus the caretaker was waiting for us to let us into the home and show us everything we needed. I also can not say enough positive things about her and her family. They were never intrusive but were more than willing to answer any questions with directions, hints and setting up snorkel tours with a local guide who came right to the home's dock to pick us up for a day on the ocean. Lus and her husband spent a good 30 minutes on a Saturday morning trying to find the closest medical clinic that was open for an ear infection.
The home itself is fantastic. It is large and very comfortable with great A.C., large bedrooms with great king sized beds, and a wonderful dock. The master suite is huge and comparable to what you would expect from a suite in most 5 star Vegas resorts. The master is on the second floor which was nice as it gave ourselves and teenage daughters our own separate spaces at the end of the day (each of them having their own large room with a king sized bed). The home was very clean and I loved the large fluffy towels in the bathrooms. Lus came in several times throughout our stay to wash the towels and wash/change the sheets on the bed but she was willing to clean daily if we asked. We also appreciated having the washer and dryer as it saved packing space for 14 days.
We spent several days just hanging out on the dock enjoying the comfortable lounge chairs and ocean waves. As far as the location of the home, it is less than a 10 minute drive to Maya beach and it's grocery store and restaurants. It is also very close to the Placencia Resort and its huge pool which we took advantage of several times as staying in Norman's home allows you to access the resort.
I highly recommend it, Norman is great to work with and the home itself is very nice, you will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here.
The house was awesome. It was the perfect spot to enjoy a day in the beach or go into town. We will definitely be back!
This was our first visit to Belize and it did not disappoint. We drove from Belize City to Norman's house and were immediately impressed when we rolled into the driveway. The house's caretaker, Lus, prepared a delicious Belizean style meal for our arrival. It hit the spot. In fact Lus overall was amazing. She helped us with anything we needed. The location of the house is about a 30 minute drive to Placencia Village, which was just convenient enough. I cannot say enough nice things about the house and the property. I thought the pictures were too good to be true. I assure you they do not do it justice. Each bedroom has comfortable beds with with amazing linens. The privacy of the private dock and huge cabana were also a huge plus. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
It is rare to visit a rental property to find it is even better than imagined--but here it is. The pictures are wonderful and the place is paradise; on site is even better. The long pier leads to a terrific spot for lunch or watching the sun rise. The grounds are kept immaculately. Everything works; if it doesn't then Norman or the staff fix it immediately. There is a family living on the property away from the house--attentive yet not over-bearing, ready to help whenever asked or to leave you in peace. Truly wonderful.
This was our first visit to Belize and the suggestions from Norman (owner) made planning the trip very easy. From booking flights to what restaurants to go to. My family have already posted pictures and captions on FB like "this was the best vacation ever", " we want to go back now" The property and location are great. The sunrise for the end of the dock is spectacular. 6 out of the 7 days we were up at 5:30 am just to watch the sunrise. Fantastic property and great service!
