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 large chaise lounge 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 adults, 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 Belize

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.

The White House In Placencia, In Placencia Village - Right On The Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 20 reviews

Beautiful ocean front home in Placencia, Belize!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious 3 bedroom home with a large great room. All living space is on the 2nd floor which allows for nice sea breeze. All bedrooms have a/c which is important for sleeping. Kitchen is large and equipped with every thing like in the U.S.. Our family liked being able to walk to main part of village on the sidewalk in about 10 mins. Kirsten is good about answering questions, etc. We rented a golf cart for 3 days to let us explore Placencia and area. Nick, property manager was helpful. **be sure to have Gelato, fabulous on Main st. has lg. ice cream cone in front....we enjoyed every day and sometimes twice. Friends good for breakfast. We suggest a card table/chairs that could be brought out for games, cards. Wind blew cards off nice lg. table on deck. The White House is great.. hope to stay at Kirsten's again. Peggy G. from A.

No doubt it's a bit of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this beautiful luxury home for almost a week in April. Lovely spot. The house was very well set up with everything we could need. We had a rent a car, but it was such a nice walk down the Placencia sidewalk, we didn't use it much. So many great places to eat, drink and see. The info provided in the home and by email always pointed us in the right direction. At the end of our Spring Break, my family said they preferred this spot to our San Pedro Spring Break vacation of last year, I think because of this home and the cute little friendly town of Placencia.

Exceptional Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed for one week at the White House in Placencia and enjoyed every moment there. The house is beautiful with a huge deck so you can appreciate the spectacular ocean views. The pictures really don’t do the home justice. The home is spacious and more than big enough for a family of six adults. It’s well equipped with everything you need for your stay there.

The owners provided extensive details on how to reach Placencia from the Belize Airport, along with lists of what is available to do in the area. The booklet in the home is full of restaurant menus and tour guide information.

The Placencia sidewalk is just a few steps away and we could walk everywhere in the village. Lots of restaurants and fun bars.

We arrived one day late because of a missed flight connection and Kirsten offered us an extra night free of charge – unfortunately, we couldn’t change our flights but she still extended the offer if we ever make it back to Belize! That’s above and beyond!

We highly recommend the White House in Placencia if you are planning a trip to Belize.

Wonderful vacation, perfect house

  • 5 of 5

The house is so perfect for a vacation of 6 people. We were 3 couples and absolutely loved the house and location. Easy, short walk to town for restaurants, bars, shopping. The kitchen has everything that you need. We spent a ton of time on the big balcony enjoying the gorgeous view of our beach. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful home and property. amazing views, cool breezes. open floor plan. it's simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location on the sidewalk. Short walk to the heart of the village but far enough away you don't get the noise from The Tipsy Tuna or The Barefoot bar.

Lovely place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six unrelated women looking for a time out from our busy lives. The White House was amazing! I particularly loved the 18 x 18 tile that went throughout the entire house! Any time we were there, the entire wall-to-wall doors in the living room were open to the outside porch. The layout was excellent and we each seemed to have all of the privacy we needed at any given moment. The breeze off the ocean was continuous and lovely. My absolute favorite thing was the outside shower on the second floor balcony--private and luxurious with amazing views. Hey, we're in sunshine and warm water when it's snowing in New England....what's not to love?! A short walk into town for eating meals, when we felt like being waited on! Lots of little shops to poke around in. The kitchen was well appointed. The washer and dryer let us bring home clean clothing! I can't say enough good things about the White House! It was everything we hoped for and more!

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.
