Harry's Cozy Cabanas are wonderful. Its a perfect location on the Beach where not too many people walk by. There is a barbeque pit, Picnic table, and a picture perfect dock to go sit on. The rooms are simple, nothing too extravagant, but clean and well decorated. A fridge and coffee maker were included, clean towels and all other basic amenities. The beds were comfortable and the room stays cool. The rooms all have at least two fans. It is well ventilated with shutters and well screened. The small screened in front porches on the cabanas are nice to have as well, comfortably seating two people. It is also very to the Paradise restaurant which is a good place to grab a cup of coffee in the morning or to grab a bite to eat. Harry himself is a wonderful, kind person and a pleasure to be around. All in all Harry's Cabanas offer the best value in all of Placencia. If you want to have a quiet getaway in a gorgeous tropical setting, minus the the big resort hustle and bustle, this is the place.

We were looking for something simple, right on the beach with an easy walk into town. Harry's was exactly what we were looking for. The cabanas are small, but why would you need much room when you have the whole beach right out your front door?! They were also quite simple, which was perfect for us. Did have a small fridge and coffee pot, which was a nice plus. Only complaint was the sheets...I wouldn't have minded something a bit less rough! But otherwise Harry's was perfect and Harry himself was quite a character!

The location is amazing! The sun rise from the cabana’s are breathtaking. I was traveling by myself and felt like the cabana would be great for a couple, but I had fun there solo too! I stayed in the one with the Kitchen which was nice if you plan on cooking. Bring snorkel gear if you have it, you can go right off the beach! When you get here… go slow and relax. There are hammocks in the shade that are perfect to just relax on a warm afternoon. I wish I had more time to get to know Harry, he seems like someone who would have a lot of great stories.

Room Tip: Cabana #1 has a kitchenette

Harry's was a great place for us to stay on a very low key relaxing vacation. Traveled with another couple and every morning we took our coffee to the beach and watched the sunrise. Perfect way to start the day. Beach was very quiet and out of the way. Not much foot traffic. Cabanas were just what we expected. Clean and comfortable. Our luggage was a day behind us and Fern offered to lend us whatever she could. She also helped us track it down and get it from the local airport when it did come in. We are already thinking about our trip for next year. Thank you Fern and Harry.

We recently spent a week with another couple at Harry's. It was exactly what we expected, clean, simple and out of the way. Fern kept us happy without being pushy, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the early morning sunrises to the sound of the surf at night. It was what we wanted. We will be back!

Simple, but spotless cabanas, great water pressure, plenty of room and wonderful, relaxed owners. Location is down a sandy lane and bit of hike if you have walking difficulties but otherwise cannot say enough good things about his place. Definitely backpacker friendly but in a good way, can be a bit disorganized but great attitudes and that matters more.

Room Tip: bit of a hike to hotel over sand so best for backpacks or a golf cart for luggage, lighting can be a...

This was my 6th or 7th trip to Belize although my first to Placencia it was also my current girlfriends first time so i was a little concerned she would not be able to adjust to the pace and no place in Belize personifies that pace more(or lack of it) than Harry's. Needless to say it turned into one of my best vacations ever. Harry is a fantastic and generous host and is full of great stories. We we rarely left the the "resort" except to make runs for supplies (rum steak beer and more rum) and cooked in the sand almost every night. Harry's is at the end of the peninsula so can be quite private, we lucked out as there were no other guests the week we stayed. The sand part of the beach is a short swim over some seaweed so bring your water shoes this will make sense when you get there.

Room Tip: Room one has a small kitchenette, plus the shade of a large tree with a hammock.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Harry's Cozy Cabanas was built with the desire to share one man's home and all its quaintness, beauty and charm with all those who visit. In fact it is one of the few areas in the village where you still get that feeling of old Placencia. We have preserved the old fishing village feel while adding modern amenities such as WiFi and private parking. Our 4 cabanas "The Captains Quarters", "Main Deck", "Quarterdeck" and "Forecastle" are built from Belizean hardwood and are on stilts giving them that authentic old Belize cabin feeling. All the cabanas have full kitchens and queen or double beds sleeping two people comfortably. The Captains Quarters and Forecastle cabanas have futons that make into beds if you have more than two people in your party. You will find comfort on the large verandas with private hammocks, tables and chairs and amazing views of the Caribbean Sea. You can settle in your hammock or a chase lounge on the beach,and enjoy a good book or nap, snorkel and swim at your leisure. We are walking distance from the center of the village where you can find grocery stores, restaurants, gift shops and coffee shops. Depending on the time of year you visit, you can help yourself to the fruits from the many fruit baring trees around the property. Mangoes, Guavas, and Coco Plums just to name a few. We can't wait to share the tranquility and beauty of Harry's home with you here at Harry’s Cozy Cabanas and thanks in advance for making us your home away from home.
