SEAGRAPE is in Maya Beach: Amazing OCEANfront w/DOCK!,Wifi,SUPs,kayaks,bikes!!

Placencia house

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Paradise, at an affordable price!” Seagrape was a perfect escape for my partner and 9-year-old son--both incredibly romantic and totally kid-friendly. The setting, right on a beautiful beach, is unbelievable. We got to watch gorgeous sunrises and moonrises over the water. The photos don't do justice to the house--it has a huge open kitchen/living room and best of all, a screened in porch that goes the length of the front of the house and wraps around the sides (love the hammock and swinging bed!). We took the house kayaks and explored the little mangrove island in front of the house (a little further than it looks), and took the house bikes into town (too far, as Midge warned, but a fun adventure anyway), and made fools of ourselves on the house paddleboard. We also took day trips to snorkel the reef at the incredibly beautiful Silk Caye and to explore the rainforest at Monkey River and to see manatees. All this for the same price or less than we would have paid to visit Florida. Book this trip before everyone finds out about it and the prices go up!!

Coconut Cottage (Westbys Coconut Cottage Placencia)

Placencia log cabin

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Sand, surf, sun, ahhhhh...” We arrived to a cozy, delightful cottage. Don't think of a resort, instead think of comfortable rustic charm. The breezes were constant but just down the sidewalk the breezes were blocked and it was much warmer. The porch was wonderful and morning coffee and cinnamon bons from John the Baker was a welcome treat. Ask for tips on the local spots and support the locals. Great food at Dawn's Grill & Go, breakfast at Cozy Corners, pizza & sandwiches at Rick's, the Shak, and yummy homemade ice cream/cells to at Tutti-Fruiti's. The waters are clear and shades of blue. Snorkeling is good, lots of places to tour. Monkey River is a good one and Cockscomb Preserve is beautiful for hiking and tubing. Kay is a marvelous host and very helpful. Her kitties are welcoming and visit often. We WILL be back!

Laguna Gecko 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Villa with view of Mayan Mountains

Placencia house

4 bedrooms / 4 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Amazing tropical escape” We stayed in this amazing home for a week with a total of 12 family members from all over the country. The house was very roomy with plenty of space for everyone. The house backs to the lagoon with tons of birds and dolphins swimming by. A short walk across the street takes you to the ocean for a nice cool down on a hot day. It was a little bit of a drive to Placencia, but worth it. I would advise you to plan ahead for meals. If you want to eat out and avoid cooking, check to see what is really open close by. The belizian time is not understated! And we didn't realize what housekeeping meant. We were spoiled. Didn't have to wash a dish the entire week. That is what I call vacation! And the pool...oh the pool. This made this home exceed our expectations. A gorgeous ocean front pool with sand vollyball, kayaks, and a gorgeous refreshing pool surrounded by palms and with a swim up bar. We ended up ending most days here. The staff was great and we were usually the only ones there. Definately recommend this place. The only thing I would mention that could use improvements is sound control. It is a large all tile open floorplan and sleeping in if there are little ones along may not happen! Overall, great place.

“Great location. Wonderful hospitality. Great place to relax and enjoy the sea.” I can't speak more highly about the hospitality. Very willing to accommodate us and our needs. Very comfortable. Loved having our own mini kitchen, and the layout of the room was nice. Plus we loved the added bonus of the beach being so close to us, and not being right in the village, but at the outskirts made it more quiet and personal. If you stay here you will not regret it, great place at a great price.

Jammin Gecko is a Private Beach Front 3 Story Custom Home with Pool

Placencia house

5 bedrooms / 7 bathrooms / sleeps 12

“Breathtaking” This house is amazing! The views from the master bedroom are such a nice way to start the morning or end the evening. The house is well appointed with everything you could possibly need and beautifully decorated. The on site staff made this one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever taken with cleaning, laundry and meals included. Besides this house Maya Beach and Placencia is a great vacation spot for anyone. There is so much to do and so many places to eat I can't list them all here. Thankfully the owner of Jammin Gecko provides with a list of everything you need to know. The pool, kayaks and paddleboards at the house also make for plenty of fun without leaving the Villa.

“Amazing and awesome time.” What an amazing and phenomenal experience. We had an awesome time. The accomodations were clean and comfortable. The food could not have been fresher - right from the sea. A fully stocked bar with great amenities. We kayaked around the island and visited neighboring islands. It was a bit cool to snorkel at the time we were there, but the whole experience was truly awesome. What a peaceful and relaxing place.

Dreamsicle House Upper Apartment

Placencia apartment

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Honeymoon in Dreamsicle” My husband and I stayed at Maya Beach Hotel in the Lower Dreamsicle House for our Honeymoon in May. Our experience with Maya Beach Hotel and the staff was outstanding. Our "house" was clean, and private, with beautiful views of the ocean and just steps away from the restaurant. It was so nice to sit on the lower porch and enjoy our coffee and breakfast each morning, and enjoy a cool beverage while sitting on the beach with our feet keeping us cool in the ocean waves. When we wanted to explore the area or take adventures, Ellen and her staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. Martin was always willing to give us our options for activities and help us coordinate our adventures. Without their help and recommendations, we wouldn't have been able to experience the local favorite hot spots or organize our adventures with ease. It was so nice that they coordinated someone to pick us up and drop us off at the airport for our arrival and departure. You can tell they really enjoy what they do, and their passion is unmatched. When we come back to Belize we will definitely stay at Maya Beach Hotel and we recommend it to anyone looking for a beach front relaxing vacation!

Agua Villa House Maya Beach; Private Pool Too!

Placencia house

3 bedrooms / 4 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Fabulous beach views, beautiful pool, good amenities, great serv” Aqua Villa is the perfect place to stay if you want to be close-but-not-too-close to busy Placencia. The house has a beautiful pool plus a fabulous ocean view, and we spent many hours lounging on the deck enjoying both. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked (even a blender!), the wifi connected, and the a/C worked when we wanted it, but we often just left the windows open to the sea breeze. The living room is tiny but the with the tropical weather, we never stayed indoors. Maid service from the Maya Beach Hotel was excellent. We have stayed at two other resorts in the Placencia area and having "our own" house while still enjoying the services of the Maya Beach Hotel was the best of both worlds. The area is quiet and agua Villa is within walking distance of a grocery store, making it easy to do your own cooking. Cooking your own seafood and eating outside was a highlight. We also tried many wonderful restaurants, and the best restaurant of the week was just steps away, the Maya Beach Hotel Bistro. We had to force ourselves to try other restaurants because the Maya Beach Bistro was so good. We rented a car for other restaurant trips and excursions and found that we were just minutes from Placencia and only an hour or so from the Bocawina zip line experience. The ziplining was amazing and the drive to and from a great way to see a less touristy view of Belize. One day we drove to the ruins and had a terrific lunch at Coleman's Cafe on Main Street in the Toledo district; the food was tasty and the hospitality even better. Agua Villa is a perfect place to get away from it all when you need to, and get to it all when you want to.

Flip Flop Palace #1 Upper Beach Suite next to Maya Beach Hotel

Placencia private room

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“I really liked it” A lovely place to stay. The Flip Flop Palace is secluded and private whilst being within moments of the Maya Beach Hotel so there is always someone close at hand should you need them. I found the service excellent. Everyone from Ellen, one of the owners, to the reception staff to the wonderful housekeeping ladies were fabulous. The waiters in the restaurant also gave spot on service and were so friendly. And a special mention to the lovely Marlon who was so welcoming and friendly. The Flip Flop Palace is great and I loved staying there. Thicker curtains at the bedroom window would have been good as I was woken up early by the rising sun every morning until I thought to hang beach towels over the curtain rail to keep the light out. The location is amazing. One of my favourite places was the promenade/jetty where I loved to go and sit and read. As far as the amenities, the best thing for me was the hotel having a guest computer so you could check emails etc whenever you needed to. Equally importantly was the quality of the food, which was outstanding. I am a vegetarian and was not expecting to find it easy to get veggie food in Belize at all, but the Maya Beach restaurant not only served vegetarian food, but it was superb, and you have more than one dish to choose from! I'm not surprised the restaurant has won awards. I liked best having my own place, rather than a room in a hotel. I liked least the pitch black walk from the hotel to the Flip Flop Palace at night (take a torch!).

Perfect Private Caribbean Seafront Luxury Villa with Pool

Placencia villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Great property on a peaceful, gorgeous part of the peninsula” We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at One Particular Harbor. We were 2 couples and chose to each stay in one of the bottom floor rooms & use the upstairs to lounge and as the main kitchen. Having both an upstairs & a downstairs deck was great. There was always a mix of sun and shade & many comfortable spots to relax. We also enjoyed having the small pool. There were a couple of small things to point out. First, the screens in this home are a real pain! Melissa had warned us that they were having problems with them, but it was nearly impossible to close the screens without multiple tries, slamming them, and oftentimes they’d come off the tracks. Unfortunately one of the couples bedroom screen was completely unusable so they had to run their A/C. These screens are a great concept to be able to have all the doors wide open all the time, however, what a bummer that they just don’t work! Second, Melissa had also warned us not to feed any of the neighbor dogs who sometimes come around. There were 2 dogs from the north neighbor who hung around on our beach nearly all day & night. They posed no problem and just quietly relaxed in the shade. The south neighbor, however, had a dog who seemed rather unfriendly & barked a lot. There was one day he barked almost the entire afternoon. On other days when he was let outside he’d get near the other dogs & start fighting with them & barking at them. On one occasion he took the fight onto our deck where we were relaxing. We yelled at him & tried to shoo him away. The neighbors were within view but didn’t act concerned or apologetic which we thought was strange! There is no pier on this property which we knew in advance. During our stay the wind was just right to have piles of seaweed accumulate on shore. Teo, the caretaker would come by each morning to work on the seaweed, but he seemed to just shovel it back into the ocean & it would eventually make its way back onto shore. We climbed over the seaweed to get out & swim, but the bottom was very mucky. It might be nice someday to have a pier to swim from, but there’s plenty of spots to lounge on the property & we could always use the pool for swimming. Lastly, this property was a bit far from town for us. We specifically booked it for this reason, but given we enjoy dining out for meals & there’s many great spots to try in Placencia, we wished we were a little closer. With the speed bumps on the peninsula road it seemed to take us 30 minutes to get to town which seemed too long to do more than 1x per day. We ate at Maya Beach restaurant, Mangos, and Singing Sands – all of which are very good (Maya Beach = excellent!) and only a 10 minute drive away. But in summary, this is a really great property on a peaceful, gorgeous part of the peninsula. The house is set up so nicely for 2-3 couples and was supplied with absolutely everything you could need. The kayaks they provide are awesome and the view from both of the decks as well as the lookout rooftop deck are phenomenal. Melissa was very helpful arranging the rental, getting us set up with a rental car, recommending flights & arranging a last minute monkey river tour for us. She also took the time to meet us upon arrival to show us around & met us again before we departed.

About Placencia

Located in the Stann Creek district of Belize, Placencia is a village situated on the coast within exquisite surroundings that travelers find hard to resist. The lush landscape features beautiful forests, a lagoon, several Mayan ruins, a beach, and wildlife reserves. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are plenty of activities to enjoy including Placencia diving, horseback riding, Placencia fishing, sea and river kayaking, Placencia snorkeling, and sport and fly fishing. Nature lovers will also be impressed by the abundance of flora, fauna, birds, and butterflies.

Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Placencia:

  • Lubaatun: Lubaatun, or "place of fallen stones," is a major archeological site of ancient Mayan ruins in Belize. It

was thought to be a commercial center for the civilization and significant marketplace for the people.

  • Nim Li Punit: Thought to be a ceremonial site, this area of ancient Mayan ruins is located in Belize's Toledo district. It is also known as "big hat" or "top hat" because it features a massive, intricate head-dress on a sculpture depicting one of the area's ancient leaders.
  • Cave Tours: Placencia features a number of spectacular caves that travelers can explore by foot or experience by swimming or tubing. Some of the most popular ones include Blue Creek Cave and the Crystal Cave.
  • Monkey River: A trip down this beautiful waterway features a number of exotic animals, including howler monkeys, iguanas, and crocodiles.
  • The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary: Located in neighboring Belize, this sanctuary is one of the largest, preserved areas in the country. It opened in 1990 as the first jaguar sanctuary and now houses about 60 jaguars.
  • The Belize Barrier Reef: This is the second largest living coral reef on the planet, and it spans along the country's entire coast. It is big draw for travelers interested in scuba diving and snorkeling since the underwater sights are simply awe-inspiring.

A vacation rental in Placencia is the ideal way to experience everything the city has to offer. Whether you book a villa near the beach or a condo downtown, your home away from home will have everything you need.

Tropical garden experience in colorful setting in the heart of Maya Beach
Quiet and Friendly.

This location is a 15 minute drive or 45 minute bicycle ride outside of Placencia which was a perfect location for me to acquaint myself with Belize and get a feel for the life style. I enjoyed the quite surroundings and pace that May Beach had to offer. A short walk to a number of restaurants/bars and beaches and grocery stores. For a change of pace it was easy to get into Placencia for a bit more of the touristy action of bars and beaches. Hosts: Herbert and Simone were very friendly and helpful in providing information on local activities, sites to see and helped book me for a couple of excursions. Felt more like family than guest.see more
French Louie Caye: Private Island Rental in Belize
Relaxing, Welcoming, Natural Beauty

We live in Belize so are pretty used to how beautiful the country is and have visited several other islands during the time we lived here, when we arrived at French Louie we were very impressed with how well maintained the island was and how beautiful it was. Alberto and his wife were very accommodating and the meals they prepared were very delicious. They even gave us a choice of what we would like to eat. My granddaughter had a wonderful time exploring the waters, (even though when we went she said she would not go into the sea) once there we could not get her out. We played games in the evening, listen to music and I felt totally pampered and relaxed. I would definitely recommend this island as a "must see" when visiting Placencia area.see more

Vacation Rental in the Caribbean. Lux. Swan Villas
A wonderful stay!

We recently traveled to Placencia with a group of seven and couldn't have found a better place to stay for our visit. Swan Villas was the perfect folllow-up to our preceding days in the jungle. Rudy and Montse, the villa owners, were absolutely wonderful hosts offering assistance as needed but leaving us in private at the villa, as if it were our own home. On day one, Rudy led us on a bike tour to Placencia and offered great insight in to the surrounding area. He even arranged for additional bikes for our group. He rightfully takes great pride in the property itself and his attention to detail makes for a very comfortable stay. Throughout our visit he was always available to help with tour arrangements or recommendations on what to do in town. The contemporary architecture is complete with all the amenities of home in a very unique setting + an amazing pool looking out over the lagoon. The rooms are comfortable and clean including the common area kitchen which we made use of for breakfasts and lunches. Swan Villas is a great place for small groups looking to travel together or for families needing individual rooms for everyone. We will all be looking forward to seeing the development continue to grow and will forever remember our stay there. Hoping to return again someday soon! Thank you Rudy!see more

Fantastic, we had 14 people with 2 at 7 years old and a 15 month old. We rented both houses and it was fantastic. Martin and Diana were great as was dealing with Midge. I highly recommend Casa Beya or Casa Seagrape (or both) to anyone. Nice supplies in the kitchen with tons of toys to play with in the water. It was a little buggy wear spray all the time, at least in June!see more
