Our rental house here in Placencia is perfectly situated in the middle of the village (north to south) and back on the lagoon. It’s at the end of a quiet residential “block” (really a dirt, gravel road), but directly across from Dawns’ restaurant on the main road.
It’s an up/ down duplex and we have the bottom floor.
The yard has a big laundry line which comes in handy because we do a LOT of laundry here! Like I don’t even understand how we make so much laundry when we’re wearing so little. And speaking of laundry- the washer is outside. That is apparently pretty common here but a novel idea to us.
This is our front yard…right on the lagoon. Haven’t seen any crocodiles yet, just a lot of visiting dogs.
We have two small bedrooms and a better kitchen than I expected.
The oven/stove are gas but not like back home…an outdoor butane tank supplies our stove and oven and we use a lighter to ignite the burners each time we want to cook.
We don’t have a tub here so we had to improvise Mitch’s bath time.
And of course, you can’t flush paper. And spare toilet paper is kept in the coffee canister.
So that’s our little house; certainly not fancy but it does the job and at under $900 USD a month (utilities included) the price is right… and you can’t beat the outdoor living space.
