Why Cindy Weller chose Placencia

We fell in love with the laid-back little fishing village of Placencia after discovering it just by chance. We liked it so much that we returned often - each time for longer and longer stays - and ultimately retired here and built a home.

What makes this studio unique

With the tropical climate and water all around us, we feel like we've truly found paradise. The beach and Caribbean are a 5 minute walk away, and the Placencia Lagoon is right outside our door. Unlike many destinations a car isn't a necessity, as banks, businesses, shops, restaurants, and night life are within walking or biking distance. Snorkeling, diving, fishing, boating, and all manner of water sports are all readily available within minutes of Harbour Hideaway.

Jungle tours, cave tubing, trips to Mayan ruins and much more can be arranged within walking distance of Harbour Hideaway as well.

Belize is UnBelizeable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Harbour Hideaway was the best. Jim and Cindy made us feel like family. Their studio was perfect for what we needed. They had everything: beach towels, kayaks and they even borrowed an extra bike from a friend so our whole family could have one. They were very thoughtful. It is in a great location and it is very clean. Our vacation will be remember for always.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Hideaway was a comfortable, lovely place to stay at for our first time visit to the town of Placencia.

We stayed for over a week enjoying the comfort and privacy of the large studio apartment on the waterfront. Surrounded by tropical plants and exotic birds. The beach, restaurants and shops were only a walking distance away. We also had fun exploring the island by golf cart and boat. Our hosts Cindy and Jim were very kind and helpful.

We look forward to going back and would recommend Harbor Hideaway to anyone looking to visit paradise.

A Perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Harbour Hideaway for a week that included Christmas. It was myself and my two teenage boys. We were looking for a place to relax and enjoy all of the wonderful things there is to do in Belize.

We found that in Harbor Hideaway and so much more. We were treated like family from the minute we arrived. The hideaway was much more than we expected. The place was very clean and had everything you could possibly want in a vacation rental.

We were lucky enough to be there for Christmas and were invited to the owners Christmas dinner with all of their friends. We had an incredible time meeting everyone and getting to know more locals. The food was fantastic and the company even better.

I would recommend the hideaway to anyone going to Placencia village. It is in a great location and the place is just wonderful.

My boys are bugging me to take them back this summer.

Ideal relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Harbour Hideaway for two weeks in Feb/March 2014. Our hosts, Jim and Cindy were absolutely wonderful! From the time Jim picked us up at the airport, until the time he dropped us off, we enjoyed the most amazing peaceful relaxing vacation at Harbour Hideaway, where Cindy just couldn’t do enough for us! The suite is so spacious, and all of the photos show things just the way they are.....you will not be disappointed! The location on the canal is awesome, as you can have a quick dip whenever you want to. Otherwise you are so close to the beach and the village, that they are only a short walk away. The spacious suite is set up to work for you in all kinds of weather, from the kayaks and bikes; to the hammock; to the games, books and movies (if the weather does not cooperate....not that we needed it) Jim and Cindy are such a part of the community, that they are able to give you advice from great day trips, to who cooks a delicious take-out-barbeque-chicken! We would love to return and would not hesitate to recommend this gem!

BEST VACATION I HAVE EVER HAD!

  • 5 of 5

This rental experience was more than I could have hoped for. The owners were awesome. The accommodations were awesome. My husband who did not want to go to Belize in the first place now wants to go for two weeks next year as long as we stay at Harbour Hideaway. Our week with Cindy and Jim was truly the best vacation in my lifetime!!!

Owner's Response: We didn't realize Bruce was a reluctant visitor, and we're so pleased he wants to return as a result of his stay at Harbour Hideaway! That it was your best vacation ever tells us we succeeded in providing the kind of experience you were looking for. Thanks for convincing Bruce to come along - tell him there's lots more in store for him next year!

Third Time; Charm Continues

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this studio accommodation, January 2012, February 2013, and came back for the month of February 2014! The listing and photos are very accurate but do not capture the amazing hospitality you will experience if you stay here. The owners are such wonderful hosts that we get homesick for them and their lovely studio apartment in Placencia. They continue to pay attention to details that make their accommodations first class all the way; for example, this year, all new paint and area rugs. Each year there are more additions that just make the place better. This includes the kayaks, which we enjoyed paddling, on the lagoon, which is at your doorstep. There is lots of wildlife to see in the nearby mangroves, both over (birds) and under the water (stingrays and eagle rays etc.). Being right on the water (canal, on lagoon side) is such a lovely, tranquil setting. Important to also note how quiet this end of the canal is at night. The place just keeps getting better and we feel like we are coming home when we arrive. The owner’s hospitality extends as far as the guests are comfortable with…we miss it already and cannot wait to get back there in 2015.
