BEACH FRONT VILLA W/POOL, PRIVACY AND PLENTY OF WOW FACTOR

Placencia Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Luxurious

The Beach Villa at Cocoplum represents one of the finest accommodation options available on the Placencia Peninsula. Nestled in the lush environs of the Cocoplum Residential Community, the Beach Villa offers travellers a truly unique blend of privacy, luxury and accessibility to the area’s many attractions.

Private

Fronting on a mile of secluded Caribbean beach, each bedroom has its own entrance, making it ideal for people who wish to share their Belize adventure, but who also value their private space. The master bedroom is perched above the living/dining area and boasts a stunning view of the sea and nearby cayes from its spacious veranda. The two guest bedrooms are actually larger than the master and boast oversized tub showers as well as one of a kind outside showers.

Sustainable and Safe

All three rooms surround the inviting waters of the villa’s swimming pool. The Beach Villa sports the best in Belizean hardwoods, including black poisonwood bedroom floors, mahogany cabinets, and deck made from sapodilla – the tree tapped for chewing gum. The kitchen area features granite counter tops, and comes complete with all appliances and utensils to provide for a carefree luxury holiday. The adjacent living area features a 32” flat screen LCD tv with 105 channel cable and wireless internet. Hot water for the villa is generated using a large capacity solar heating system. The 224 acre community employs its own 24 hour security staff.

Location, location, location

Cocoplum is a ten minute drive from the Placencia airstrip, and is conveniently positioned between the laid back bustle of the village and the more upscale eateries of the northern peninsula. We provide free transfers to and from the airport and are more than happy to arrange a car rental or taxi for your forays into the village or one of the nearby fine dining establishments.

Adventure

Land and sea adventures abound on the peninsula and it is our pleasure to connect our guests with the best the country has to offer. This includes world class SCUBA diving, snorkelling and fishing, invigorating hiking and tubing at nearby national parks as well as the exploration of thousand year old cities of the ancient Maya.

Personalized Service

We know that when it comes to rental homes there is a wide selection. What makes this home special is that the level of personalized service matches the physical quality of the Beach Villa. Your host is not a hired caretaker; he is a resident and principal of the development where the home is located. Think of him as concierge and good neighbor rolled into one.

Availability

Please contact the owner if the dates you are interested in are already shown as booked on the calendar.

About Aaron Krohn

In December 1973 Stewart Krohn had just finished his third semester at University of Michigan Law School and figured it was time for a well deserved vacation. He booked a seven day sailing charter on a 50 foot locally built “yacht” based in the remote fishing village of Placencia in British Honduras. When that memorable week of fishing, diving and cruising the barrier reef was over the captain said “My first mate is leaving to go lobster fishing. Would you like the job?” The 23 year old immediately said yes before his brain could even begin to process the ramifications. Close to 40 years later Krohn is still on a leave of absence, having managed to acquire a family, a fascinating career in journalism and adopted country in the interim. The beach villa at Cocoplum is a prototype home that is part of a larger residential/resort venture being developed by Krohn and local partners. He maintains a permanent residence just around the corner from the beach villa and his two grown sons, Adam and Aaron, both work for the company.

Aaron Krohn purchased this villa in 2011

What makes this villa unique

The Beach Villa is a beautiful home by any standard, and features like the outdoor showers and amazing local hardwood finishes give it plenty of extra wow factor. However, the old adage 'location, location, location' holds very true here, and places the Beach Villa in a league of its own. Being in a home in Cocoplum is very different than being in one found right on the main highway. Traffic and noise here are minimal, and privacy and security are held in high regard by our 19 staff members. The difference here is immediately recognizable once you step onto the grounds. We look forward to the possibility of hosting you here and showing you an amazing time here in Belize.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Best laid out and nicest beach house we have stayed including those in the US. It is well thought out and very private. We totaled 6 people, my wife and I, 3 kids ages 13-17, and my 81 year old father. The kids had one room, my father the other, and we had the upstairs room. Nice that everyone had their own space. We spent 10 days here and have a great time. I think we saw a total of about 5 different people on the beach in our entire time. Its a great walking beach and the sea kayaks were fun, but its not the best for swimming. The wooden chairs out by the water were a morning ritual to watch the sun rise.
Beds are comfortable (the fold out twin not so much), towels are plentiful, everything seems well maintained. Having the local phone with Aaron's and Stewart's numbers pre-programmed was reassuring, though we never really needed it. If we spent much time in the house we always would see one or the other walking down the street out front. Groceries are easy to get around the area (VISA accepted at all the stores), we generally ate breakfast and a snack at the house and went out for dinner or lunch. Plenty of great restaurants around the area (you will need a car). I recommend Bonefish Grill and Mangos in Maya Beach (about 3-4 minutes away) and Wendys, Omar's, and De Tatch down in Placencia (about 15-20 minutes). Never had a bad meal, ate lots of fish, rice, and beans. For those with picky American kids, everywhere has a pretty Americanized menu available (Burgers, pasta, pizza, chicken). As far as activities, we did SCUBA though Splash Center for 2 days. Great diving! We had 2 more days scheduled but weather got in the way. Off shore seas were too rough, though the weather on land was great. Splash has great equipment (ScubaPro) and a first rate staff. We did a half day of Deep Sea fishing which was a blast (Captain Dave out of Roberts Grove marina) and that gave us some great fish for dinner. We did the chocolate and Nim Li Punit ruins tour through CayeQuest tours and the Monkey river tour with them as well. Mark and Lyra of CayeQuest are great. Lyra, who just completed her PhD at Indiana U. in Anthropology is a treasure trove of facts. Mark is a local who is passionate about the surrounding environment. I HIGHLY recommend this 2 person company and these tours. We drove ourselves up to Maya Center and grabbed a guide when we arrived and spent a very hot half day hiking the trails there. Recommend the Zoo if driving from Int airport.

Fabulous week!!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week at CocoPlum. The villa on the beach was magnificent. It matched the photos perfectly (our 1st time using VRBO so we were worried - but everything was EXACTLY as stated or shown in photos!). All 3 rooms were "master" bedrooms with great bathrooms. (The outdoor showers in 2 of the bathrooms were heavenly - 2 shower heads in each with an open ceiling! Plus a 2nd shower inside should you not want to be outside.)

Aaron went above and beyond in helping us coordinate our week and scheduled numerous things for us - Monkey River tour (great since saw a number of monkeys), fishing trips (one family day - great snorkeling and lunch on the beach plus another day for my husband to fish - he caught a tarpon and a permit and was in heaven!), car rental, dinner reservations, etc. We enjoyed the bikes, kayaks and our 12 and 14 year olds barely left the pool.

Aaron also arranged for a local cook, Radiance, to come in and cook a few nights for us - which I HIGHLY recommend. Delicious food and it was so nice to have dinner outside at the villa rather than going out every night. (Radiance also serves lunches in Placencia out of her home - called Radi's Fine Food. Try it!) Favorite restaurants out - Maya Bistro, Rumfish (these were our 2 favorites but we went to a number of other great restaurants – all of which are worth trying – just depends on if you want more casual, lunch or nicer dinner – Aaron’s a great resource for restaurant ideas too!). And Tutti Fruiti for ice cream.

All of the locals were incredibly nice. Driving around was really easy. We don't have one negative comment - it really was an amazing week! We highly recommend you visiting Belize and staying at this villa. You won't be disappointed.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Cocoplum is a beautiful property and the Villa is a fantastic place to spend a week … or more if you’re luckier than us. Stewart has created the perfect place to relax in a tropical paradise. The entire development is neat as a pin and meticulously landscaped. It’s conveniently located on the peninsula, close to great restaurants, and completely secluded. We shared the Villa with two other couples and it’s absolutely the perfect set up for that. The bedrooms are huge with baths to match. The outdoor showers in the ground floor bedrooms are to die for. The kitchen was better outfitted than my own. Overall the house was high-end and well cared for. As a matter of fact, there was nothing lacking anywhere. We went with all intentions of seeing some of Belize and ended up spending almost all our time right there at the Villa either in the pool or beachside. I’m pretty sure we utilized every amenity offered – bikes, grill, kayaks, pool floats.

Aaron is delightful and more than helpful. He even arranged a snorkeling excursion while he was with his family on a holiday (shame on us). And although the snorkeling wasn’t the best I’ve done in Belize (mother nature’s fault) we still had a pod of dolphins, with baby in tow, entertain us on the way to Silk Caye and were able to swim with nurse sharks, sea turtles, stingrays and eagle rays. Pretty cool. The guys from Nightwind, Spider & Ellison, were great guides and the lunch they cooked up was delish.

So what did we do besides relax for ten days? Eat and drink! Might I suggest the restaurant at Singing Sands, Wendy’s for great Belizean breakfasts, Mango’s for local flavor, good food and cold beer, and the all-you-can-eat buffet at Robert’s Grove if you’re there on a Saturday. Unfortunately Maya Bistro was closed while we were there but I can attest to it being awesome. Oh, and if you get the chance, catch Graham’s show at Barefoot. He plays everything – old and new – and after he’s done playing he spins some mean mashups.

Stewart, Aaron and Graham – thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us and we look forward to returning!

Beautiful house and beach, tons to do, easy to navigate

  • 5 of 5
My group and I stayed at this villa during the last week of Mar 2014. I know I am speaking for all of us when I say that the service, scenery, and experience were incredible, especially for the price! The private beach and pool area make it so easy to get out to the water which was great for swimming, kayaking, and just lounging on the beach. Having bikes at the house was also very nice as we used them multiple times. During our trip we visited a jaguar preserver, went scuba diving one day, and went to visit ATM which is a really cool cave system which featires Mayan ruins.

This Villa is especially good for people who don't want the overblown resort/tourist experience, because it allows you to be in a really nice location and quarters with tons of privacy. The property manager Aaron is very accommadating and gives great ideas on restaraunts and things to do. I cannot stress enough how much of a hidden jewel this place is, I hope to visit again in the future.

Amazing Villa and long lasting memories from Belize!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at the Villa in Coco Plum. You could not ask for a better place to stay. The villa is located right on the beach with your own personal pool. The location is fantastic, close to restaurants and many other great things to do. Aaron and Stewart are incredible hosts that go above and beyond to ensure that you have a wonderful stay. If you are coming to Belize, look no further this is the place to stay. The pictures on VRBO look amazing but let me tell you, it looks 10 times more amazing once you get there. You will not be disappointed!!! We were so sad to leave and we can't wait to come back!!!!!!

A Wonderful Week At The Beach Villa At Cocoplum

  • 5 of 5
We are three couples that usually take a winter break from northern New England to soak up some some great weather and relaxation. This was THE Perfect Spot for our late February/ early March vacation. The villa is designed with three separate master suites and a wonderful common area with a complete kitchen, dining & living area. Everything was there from bikes and kayaks to a washer and dryer. The decorating was totally first class with exquisite bath rooms that are larger than many bedrooms we've experienced in past excursions. The property includes a beautiful deck with pool that looks over the beautiful ocean and a island that is a quick kayak trip off shore. There were lots of things to do without traveling far and the local restaurants were fabulous. Aaron and his dad were wonderful hosts accommodating any need. I would highly recommend this for a wonderful Belize holiday!!

Cocoplum is a lushly landscaped, secure and tranquil neighborhood nestled between the fine dining of Maya Beach and the laid back bustle of the villages of Seine Bight and Placencia. The Placencia peninsula itself straddles two worlds: to the east lies the world's second largest barrier reef and all of the wonder it possesses both above and below the waves. Head west and you will find the Maya Mountains and surrounding rainforest, beckoning travelers to lose themselves in the mystery of a time forgotten. The peninsula is an attraction in itself, boasting some of the best meals the country has to offer, a genuinely friendly and laid back populace, and beaches that are not overcrowded.
