About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 2

The Shark Studio Retreat located on the beautiful Plancencia Peninsula offers a whimsical getaway for a couple looking to experience tropical breezes in a unique setting. This studio, located on the second floor of the Ocean Villa, features ocean views, access to a shared infinity-edge pool, WiFi, and even a jetted tub right in the room. Imagine falling asleep after a long luxurious bath!

If you enjoy sitting on the beach, the sounds of exotic birds, and complete relaxation, you will absolutely love Belize. Drive about 15 minutes and find yourself in the charming Placencia Village - where you can peruse the shops, pick up some fresh fruits and veggies at the local markets, or set up a guided scuba trip! You will want to rent some scuba gear so you can experience the fascinating aquatic life first-hand. In addition you can visit Mayan ruins, take a boat trip, or embark on a hike through the jungle.

This suite has a king bed and accommodates up to two guests comfortably - as well as your dogs, for a small nightly fee. In addition, you will find a handy kitchenette where you can prep simple meals, a full bathroom, a jetted tub, as well as a washer and dryer for your convenience.

This studio suite will create the perfect backdrop for your next tropical vacation. Not only will you enjoy the scenery around you, but you will appreciate the details of this comfortable vacation rental. Why not book today, and imagine yourself sprawled each night on that amazing round bed?

About Vacasa, Belize - Stann Creek Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Almost perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a very comfortable, private and scenic property, this is it. Very quiet, with a huge balcony overlooking the &quot;lagoon&quot; and mountains, just perfect for watching beautiful sunsets. The onsite pool is fabulous, and most of the time we had it to ourselves. The only downside is the location. It is a bit far away from the village of Placencia where most of the restaurants and dive shops are located. But the best restaurant we found (Maya Beach Bistro) is not very far.

Although it rained or was overcast most of our trip, we really enjoyed staying at the Swan Villas. Montse was very friendly and helpful regarding information and tips. The architecture and colors of the Villas were so cool; the pool is beautiful. It is a 5.5 mile drive to the town but there are several really good restaurants within walking distance. We chose to rent a car so we could travel to some of the sights on our own; best decision we made because renting a golf cart for almost the same price would've been pointless bc of the rain. Not sure driving a golf cart almost 6 miles to the town would've been our idea of fun anyway. I would definitely stay at the Villas again.

Swan Villas is a special place.

  • 5 of 5

Swan Villas design and location make it a very unique travel destination. The grounds are beautiful and clean. The look of the buildings and property set it it apart from anything else we experienced in Placencia.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

It was a piece of heaven to stay in Swan Villas, especially in the Lionfish apartment. Instead of the planned 5 nights in Lionfish we stood 4 more nights in the Turtle appartment. The location is a must see. Everything is individual and very well constructed. Besides it is very clean and perfect equipped with everything you expect. The view is gorgeous and we appreciated every moment in this place. Also, the communication with Montse was always easy, quick and accommodating. If we ever come back to Belize, this will be our first place to stay.
