If you enjoy sitting on the beach, the sounds of exotic birds, and complete relaxation, you will absolutely love Belize.

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.

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!

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.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay, the location is about 15mns from the town, its 10kms, you can cycle easily (no slope); the villa itself is incredible, the style is very original and everything is suited for you to spend a great time. The view, the terrasse, the pool, the kayaks on the river... unforgettable! And on top of all this, the kindness of the owners!

Enjoyable stay @ Swan Villa

  • 4 of 5

Very nice stay. Montse was very kind & helpful. Aesthetics were beautiful. A little too far from Placencia village. Taxis were $20 USD one-way. This is the kind of place to stay for a week, relax, and do DIY food.

This rental property was so unique. From the moment you turn the corner in the walkway and see it, it is like another place in time. Owners were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to meet. It was exactly as advertised, beautiful. Ample room for two people. Every inch was utilized to it's utmost use, and fitting with the architecture. Comfy round bed, extra large shower, jacuzzi in room, all perfect. The salt water infinity pool with seats and jets was superb, I spent a lot of time here and for the most had it to myself. My own private Oasis! I would certainly recommend this rental property to anyone.

Unique proerty, very nice place to stay in Plancencia Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

Already wrote a glowing review but, can't find it in my reviews so I will repost it now. My wife and I stayed here for three nights during our vacation in Belize. The property is very diffrent as far as the architecture and is was fun to stay at such a unique property. Everything was as described on the website. Montse, the property manager, was very helpful, she stayed late to great us when we arrived and show us around the property. She also gave us a map of the peninsula and highlighted places we might enjoy and gave us suggestions of things we wouldn't want to miss in the area. (Thanks for the suggestions, everything you suggested that we tried was perfect!) The pool is beautiful and we were glad to see the property has laundry facilities. Kayaks and paddleboards were available for use as were bicycles. We were very confortable here during our stay.
