About Casey Moore

Casey Moore purchased this house in 2016

Why Casey Moore chose Placencia

There's not another property like this in Placencia. We've kept the two lots separating Moonflower from the sea vacant and without obstruction to provide a large, extended private beach. There is also parking- a rare commodity for sidewalk residences- should you choose to rent a car of golf cart, though you'll find everything you need within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Hibiscus Beach has 24/7 presence. Our groundskeeper, Wilson, keeps the beach free of seagrass and detritus and our security guards Edward & Nelson patrol the grounds at night. Our hospitality manager, Ms. Cindy, is -time Placencia resident and is available to answer any questions our guests may have about Hibiscus Beach or Placencia in general and can assist in booking tours and suggesting adventures.

Perfect beachside home

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Moonflower. The location is perfect - it is right on the beach and it is walking distance to everything. We didn't need our car at all. It is a short walk down the beach or boardwalk to restaurants and bars, grocery stores, shops, etc. The home itself is beautiful, modern, immaculately clean, and very well equipped. We had everything we needed - tons of cooking supplies, plenty of soft bath towels, beach towels, wonderfully hot showers, a TV with several movie channels, and a huge balcony for relaxing and looking at the sea. The beds were super comfortable and the A/C kept us nice and cool the entire time. Communication with Casey was great, and Cindy, the property manager, is so responsive and helpful. We mentioned to Cindy that the only thing missing from Moonflower was a hammock - and she brought one right over! We were swinging comfortably on the beach within an hour!

It truly is an amazing place to stay. We recommend wholeheartedly to anyone staying in Placencia. We will be back!

Fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including 2 small grandchildren had a perfect stay at The Moonflower-top floor condo.

The apt was beautifully decorated, clean, bright and sunny with an outstanding sweeping view of sandy beach and ocean. Great location, just close enough to the center of activity and just far enough to feel as if you have your own quiet beach.

Cindy, the manager, was always available and helpful. She was able to solve my booking mistakes instantly and I was most thankful.

We can't wait to return to The Moonflower!

Thank you, Casey and Cindy

Beautiful home and perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The home has recently been renovated and it is beautiful, with lots of personal touches to make it very homey. There were seven of us traveling together so we ended up renting the entire house, which was perfect! Plenty of room for the various groups to each have their own space. The house was immaculate and the grounds-crew worked daily to rake the sand and keep things nice. Loads of beach chairs, hammocks to encourage lounging and the onsite laundry was a nice perk so we always had fresh towels. Cindy was very accessible and answered our calls and questions about things we needed. The location was perfect, right on the Placencia sidewalk so we were able to get to grocery stores, fruit stands, restaurants and little shops easily each day. There are plenty of beach chairs and hammocks to encourage lounging, and the property offered equal parts sun and shade to accommodate everyone's preference throughout our stay. One suggestion--it would have been nice to have a grill on the property so we could prepare meals on site.

The only thing that was a bummer during our stay--that wasn't really the fault of the owners or anyone on site--was the amount of seagrass and trash that washed up on shore the first few days. It really prevented us from enjoying the beautiful beach right outside our door, which was the reason we picked that location. We had to go find other cleaner beaches until the "stuff" cleared out, which it eventually did. It really is a sad commentary on how people treat the planet to see all the trash wash up on shore and spoil the natural beauty of the area.

I would highly suggest Rumfish, Tipsy Tuna and Barefoot Bar for evenings out. We enjoyed them all. Maya Beach Bistro is a drive, but was lovely. We spent one afternoon at Mariposa as well when we couldn't use our beach, and as long as we ordered food/drinks, they didn't mind that we used their pool and beach. My favorite thing of the week however, was the full-day excursion to Ranguana Caye. It was a postcard perfect private island and the snorkeling was amazing and the BBQ lunch was delicious!

Moonflower is the perfect place to stay in Placencia. It is on the beach and near the Sidewalk.

  • 5 of 5

Moonflower was great for our family of four. It has everything we needed for our week long vacation. It is close to restaurants and shops without being too close to the bar scene. The view from the master bedroom of the ocean and palm trees on the beach cannot be beat. It's a great way to wake up and start the day!

Fantastic and memorable trip! We will definitely choose Moonflower for our next trip to Placencia.

  • 5 of 5

The Moonflower is dreamy. It suited our family of 4 just perfectly. I loved being on the second story simply for the privacy and the views, and being on the sidewalk was ideal for Placencia. I have absolutely nothing but great things to say from the moment i booked with Casey, through the entire trip of eating at most every place possible, to excursions (Chino- lives next to Ricks), to the grounds keeper (Wilson), to housekeeping (Kay), to Cindy who always made us feel welcome. The water is much better than San Pedro. Ranguana Caye is a must for the best Island day trip. D’Tatch was our favorite for lunch...try the nachos and the Rum Punch. Bocawina Forest was a fun day of ziplining and seeing the waterfalls. The food @ the restaurant there was amazing. Honestly i could tell you our entire trip and not one bad thing could be said. Until next time....Happy Thanksgiving!

Moonflower is the place to stay in Placencia!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Moonflower for our vacation and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful and well set up. We had everything we needed in the kitchen for making meals. The bathrooms were brand new. The house has space for your family to be together or have a little space. We stayed with our three adult children and it was the best! There is a private beach out the door, the beach is extremely clean, there is a groundskeeper who is always making sure it is perfect. There is a full balcony that looks at the ocean. It was great for relaxing after a day of activities. The location is perfect for walking on the Sidewalk and visiting all of the local businesses and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here!

Location

Nearest Airport
5 Miles
Placencia Air Strip
Nearest Beach
It's on the beach!
Car: not necessary

Placencia has its roots as a fishing village and fishing remains a vital part of its economy. Fisherman sell their catch each evening at the point and to local restaurants. There are no chains here- no big box stores, no McDonald's. Everything is fresh and local. Small vegetable & fruit stands abound, as do eateries and small shops. Take in a soccer game at the field in the village's center. Grab a cocktail at a thatch-roofed bar and experience the local fare at one of the dozens of open-air restaurants on the beach, sidewalk, and main road. Local tour operators offer excursions to go fishing, snorkeling, diving, tubing, hiking, zip-lining, paddle-boarding, and just about any other outdoor activity you can think of. Happy Exploring!!
