Comfortable accommodations in Placencia Village.  As featured on HGTV’s House Hunters International!

We bought this traditional Belizean-style home in 2017 and have updated it with all the modern amenities you’d want to make your tropical vacation comfortable and convenient but we kept it’s rustic Caribbean charm.  You’ll see beautiful hardwoods through out, custom furniture and cabinetry, local art work and crafts.

2 Bedroom (sleeps 4 +)

Our large two-bedroom apartment is fantastic for families or groups and features a large self-catering kitchen fully equipped and outfitted with full-sized appliances.  The apartment has 1 King sized bed, 1 Queen sized bed, and a futon sofa in the living room.

The apartment has air conditioning throughout but the real draw of this vacation rental is the ample outdoor space.  Two large, covered verandas are yours to enjoy a meal on or perhaps just quietly read a book in the hammock.

1 Bedroom Ground Floor Unit (sleeps 2 +)

Recently updated for maximum comfort, our 1 bedroom apartment features a King sized bed, full kitchen, and of course air conditioning!  The bathroom has a large walk-in shower.  A fully screened, private veranda provides extra, protected, outdoor living space.  A convertible sofa in the living room can accommodate a third person or child.

New Studio (sleeps 2)

We are also pleased to present our newly remodeled studio apartment with kitchenette, Queen sized bed, and ample storage space.  Perfect for a couple or single traveler; so comfortable you’ll want to extend your stay!  The kitchenette has everything you’d need to prepare a simple meal on a small scale or use the BBQ in our common area.  The bathroom has a glass-partitioned walk-in shower that is tiled with river stones.  We provide all the linens you’ll need for your stay- even beach towels.

The grounds of the property feature lush local flora and fruit trees giving the home a tropical-oasis-feel while still being in the heart of Placencia village.  Our common areas include a BBQ, sun deck with loungers, and a newly constructed plunge pool.  We are one lot away from the lagoon and you can borrow our two-person kayak for an exploratory paddle around the backside of Placencia.

We are conveniently located a minutes walk to the beach.  In fact, you can walk just about everywhere- grocery stores, gift shops, restaurants, bars, tour operators!  We are very central to everything, but if you decide to rent wheels we a next door to Captain Jaks and you can hire bikes, motorcycles, and golf carts from them.
