A traditional Belize hard wood home with two big bedrooms on the ground floor. The rooms were airy and the kitchen is huge. There were all the necessary amenities like fans, fridge, coffee maker, blender, pots & stove if you want to cook. (But no AIR CON)
The living room has a big satellite TV. The deck is amazing but the dock even more. You can take a cooling dip in the canal or get picked up by your snorkel / tour boat. This is a real treat!
The manager Stephano was very helpful in many numerous arrangements. He is also very helpful in local tips for tours, stores & snorkeling.
Everything is …..walking distance. I doubt that you need a rental bike or car. There are lots of grocery stores for brew, munchies & etc. Check out the local stands for fresh fruits & veggies. LOTS of great restaurants and very reasonable !
The shortfalls are that the housekeeping is not that “crisp”. The dogs will get early some days & bark. We also had a few mosquito bites in spite of bug dope.
Take walks & explore everywhere
Buy the local veggies & fruits
Pick up your local beers at the local grocery stores
Have coffee and cinnamon rolls at Miss Goodies
Get a great Monkey River Tour at Nite Wind
Enjoy the BBQ at Miss Brenda
Walk or take a taxi to Turtle Inn for the specials ( owned by Francis Ford Coppalo)
All in all a great experience in Placentia. Maya Lodge was also a big part so enjoy
