Description from the owner
Spacious Waterfront Studio Cabin. Serene house on the lagoon in Maya Beach, with fantastic clear views of sunset over the mountains. Built for airflow, comfort, and privacy!
The Grounds: An Acre of land contains 3 long term rental cabins, surrounded on 2 1/2 sides by water, w/ virgin mangroves on the 4th. The canal alongside has a boat ramp, and the nearest 3 lots are vacant. We’re at one of the widest parts of the peninsula, so as far from the beach road noise as you can get, only the sound of lapping waves, and fish jumping. Plenty of bird, wildlife, fruittrees, fishing, and gardening if you desire.

Additional Location Information
Neighborhood of Maya Beach:
--wonderful people, most everyone is friendly and helpful, lots of volunteer and group opportunities, several young families that blend well w/ the early retiree expats-- went to ladies afternoon bowling (not competitive league, just fun socializing) and my infant daughter had 25 instant grannies and aunts!
--Placencia Peninsula has the best beaches in Belize, with a laid back Island feel with the advantage that you can DRIVE away to explore rainforests, ruins, and culture.
--Not as touristy as Ambergris Caye, the locals are warm and welcoming. My car broke down one night, and a construction worker gave me a lift home on his bicycle 3 miles, and wouldn’t take any payment beyond a glass of water!
--The Southern Cayes and Sapodillas are much less visited, still pristine. Whalesharks and Manta Rays visit for the 2 weeks around the full moon between March and September. Loggerhead turtles, eagle rays etc. are regular sightings. Manatees and Dolphins are spotted from the beach often, it’s quite a kick to be kayaking with them!
--placencia airport is a 15 min drive away, best is to book your ticket into belize city (BZE), then see which of the 2 local airlines will give you a discount for cash (about $120US per person each way) or flying first. or take a 2 1/2 hr shuttle to enjoy scenic belize (about $150US for 6 seater friendly minivan, split among the riders)! there is a $5 public bus in an old schoolbus. there are direct flights from Miami, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Los Angeles, toronto, vancouver; with more opening every year depending on the month. American Air frequently has specials. flights into Cancun more frequent and cheaper, and a 6 hr luxury overnight bus (more comfort than coach class in plane) from cancun airport straight to belize city for about 40$ US.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Peaceful and Private Lagoon Setting
This house is located at the very end of a private road on the lagoon in the Maya Beach area of the Placencia peninsula. While it is about eight miles from the Village proper, it is a short 5-10 minute walk to any number of the wonderful restaurants located here in Maya Beach proper (Maya Beach Bistro, Mango's, Bonefish Grille, etc.). Some of the hotels even let you swim at their pool for $0-5.
The location itself is full of delightful wonders. As you sit on your completely screened in porch with ceiling fan, you may hear fish jumping, birds tweeting, or see iguanas roaming in the yard. The lagoon is very calm and quiet for the most part, but an occasional boat will pass by, reminding you of civilization.
The home comes equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay, the neighbors are nice and quiet as well, and you have your own washing machine downstairs, which saves you the time and expense of taking laundry to town.
Due to the East/West position of the house, the large amount of windows, the ceiling fans in every room, as well as the constant breezes, you will always be able to stay cool.
Elegant, newly extended 2 bed cabana. Looking west over lagoon, but only 2 minute walk from beach and near best local restaurants. Absolute peace with iguanas wandering in garden
Could not be better
