About the property

The White House In Placecia Is Truly A Paradise Getaway.

When you stay at this beautifully designed modern beach house, you’ll have the convenience of being located right at the beginning of the famous Placencia Sidewalk. Here is a rare opportunity to experience the unique tropical setting of Belize from the luxury of a three-bedroom single-family house on a quiet private beach. Swim and snorkel in the beautiful waist-deep water free of rocks and coral right outside your door! From The White House in Placencia, you are within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, making it easy to explore all that Belize has to offer.

Upon entering the home, you will find a completely open floor plan featuring contemporary design accented with local Belizean style. The large chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line stainless steel appliances and gadgets, making it a joy to cook. Beyond the kitchen is the main living area. Here, you can spend time on the couch enjoying cable on the flat screen television or browsing the web using the wireless Internet, and the entertainment center is loaded with a variety of books and games for you to enjoy. Open the foldout doors to the balcony which span the entire width of the room to create a fully indoor/outdoor space and take advantage of the natural sea breeze to keep heat and humidity out of the house. The covered balcony spans the width of the house, providing unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. From here you will enjoy seeing the sun rise over the sea, spotting boats on the water, and watching pelicans dive right into the water to catch fish.

With sleeping accommodations for 6 guests, there’s room for everyone whether you’re traveling with your sweetheart for a romantic getaway or bringing the family for a tropical adventure! The master suite spans the full length of the house and features an office alcove, flat screen television, and direct balcony access. The walk-through closet leads to the master bathroom, complete with double vanity, toilet, over sized bathtub, washer & dryer, and a separate outdoor shower where you can enjoy the refreshing breeze in complete privacy. The two guest bedrooms on the opposite side of the house share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with double vanity and walk-in shower. All three bedrooms have plenty of closet space, hot and cold water, fans, and air conditioning units.

Being located so close to the center of Placencia Village means easy access to shopping, sightseeing, sailing, fishing, snorkeling, and diving. Car, golf cart, and bike rental can be found just down the street for further exploration of the area.

The White House in Placencia will be your ultimate paradise getaway. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so check the gallery and then come see for yourself!

About Kirsten & Per Kristensen

Hi, we are Kirsten and Per Ole Kristensen and we are the owners of The White House in Placencia, Belize. We are both born in Denmark and moved to the United States with our two daughters in 1998 after living in Hong Kong for three years. In our 25+ years of marriage we have traveled the world in search of adventure, culture, and relaxation. As the time came for us to consider retirement, we began looking for the perfect place to settle down. After considering countless locations from the French Riviera to British Columbia, we finally discovered our paradise in Placencia, Belize. And we are happy to share it with you! Enjoy!

Kirsten & Per Kristensen purchased this villa in 2015

Why Kirsten & Per Kristensen chose Placencia

The White House in Placencia is unique. It is located right at the sandy beach, very close to beach bars, local restaurants and entertainment, but it is still at the quiet end, so you can enjoy a tranquil moment on the balcony when the sun rises and appreciate your privacy during the day and night. The house is only a few years old and is built in a modern way for safety and comfort.

Perfect location with everything you could ever want!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had its first time experience in Placencia staying at the White House and it was fantastic! When we first arrived, the weather was perfect and the water was warm and beautiful. We all enjoyed a swim! Even as the weather deteriorated throughout our stay, we continue to enjoy a beautiful view of the beach and the ocean. The longer we stayed, the more we realized we had the perfect spot in Placencia Village. We never even had to rent a car or golf cart! We could walk everywhere! Also, a huge convenience that was not common to many rentals is that we could drink the water in the house! That made our stay so much more relaxing. The people and the food were fantastic but for one unfortunate experience buying fish from a woman named Brenda at the pier. We had tummy troubles after that, but in speaking to our caretaker, Nick, just before we left, she is notorious for selling unsafe fish. Beyond that, everything was amazing! We especially loved the Pickled Parrot on trivia night and Rumfish for lunch. You MUST have the lion fish carpaccio at Rumfish! The people were so friendly. And Kirstin was so helpful and responsive! There is no place better to stay than the White House in Placencia!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

For our family of four, the White House in Placencia was picture perfect. It was exactly as described. The house was fully equipped and well maintained. Everything was clean and ready to use. It had a perfect, large kitchen complete with a dishwasher. The bathrooms are clean and up to date. We loved the outdoor shower in the master bath - private but with a wonderful ocean breeze.

We immediately opened the huge glass doors to the porch. There are multiple lounge chairs and you are right over the beach. The porch becomes an extension of the living area so you can hear the waves in the background.

The next morning we went downstairs and used the beach. We put out two hammocks in the shade of the house and used the beach lounge chairs for sun. The sand was freshly raked. The water was bright blue with small waves. The kids loved the hammocks.

The location is perfect, just steps away form the famous Placencia sidewalk. It is an easy walk to all of the local restaurants and shops down the sidewalk. There is a grocery store and pharmacy just down the street.

We enjoyed everything about the White House and recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Placencia. We also enjoyed a snorkel trip to Laughing Bird Caye with Matthew.

Location. Location. Location.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot possibly convey our complete satisfaction about our fabulous stay in this beautiful home with an equally beautiful view and location!

All aspects of a vacation home have been considered leaving our group of four wanting for nothing more than a few more days of vacation! The house is equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, ample towels, linens, plenty of seating, a bbq, and an EXCEPTIONAL view!

The sidewalk leading to the action is steps away from the property with a market one block away. The location was exactly what we were looking for - although we rented a car to see the coastline a bit, you truly could do without if you were looking for a quiet getaway.

We enjoyed "opening up" the home and shutting off the air conditioning to let the natural breeze cool us. And what a treat to be able to enjoy the sounds of the sea lull us to sleep and wake us in the morning!

Book this home for your next vacation! Communication with Kirsten is a breeze, and the house and location is to-die-for! (Did I mention the location???) AMAZING!

Great house in Placencia

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The White House in Placencia! The set up was perfect for the 5 of us! Nick greeted us with all the introductions and was available if we had questions. The locations was wonderful so close to the walk into town , on a beautiful beach and near the grocery store.

We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed quite a few meals overlooking the beautiful water! The weather could have been better so need to plan to return.

The house is just as described and pictures are accurate.

We went diving and recommend Splash in Placencia. Great staff and equipment and close to the house. They will pick up .

Thank you to Per and Kirsten for welcoming us into their home.

Stunning views, perfect location, paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (children ages 8,6 and 4) stayed at the White House for 9 nights and could have stayed longer. It was paradise. From the beginning it was a worry free vacation. Kristen was so helpful when we reserved the house. She had a wealth of information and when we decided to drive from Belize city instead of fly she sent us very detailed instructions which made for an easy drive even easier! We were greeted by their house manager, Nick, and he was so great about helping us with anything we needed while we were staying at the White House. The location of the house is perfect. It’s right on a gorgeous beach just outside of town. Our family could walk everywhere, even with a 4 year old. We had the car for day trips up to maya beach or little excursions elsewhere. We couldn’t recommend any house more than this one to anyone. It was perfect. Thank you!!

Car: not necessary

The White House in Placencia is located right on the Placencia beach at the end of Paradise Street. It is also by the end of the famous Placenicia Sidewalk and few minutes from shopping, dining, swimming and entertainments. But still, you are in a private area where the only noises are from birds chirping and neighboring dogs playing cheerfully on the beach. You can walk to everything, but bike and golf cart rentals are close by.
