fantastic! great family residence!

  • 5 of 5
wow! did this place ever impress! the residence was perfect in every way. we had our 2 children with us, ages 9 and 2, and everything was more than we could have dreamed of! the gardens were beautiful. the house was nicely appointed. the pool was refreshing every time we went in...and that was generally 3 times a day.

upon arrival, paul met us at the airport and picked us up. upon arriving at the house, paul & gail took care of us that first nite as we arrived late and our 2 yr old was tired from two 18 hr days of traveling. they took great care of us. made sure we were fed & made sure we knew how things worked. after some sleep, we woke up the next morning & walked into town (10 min) and went to get our rented bikes (reserved by gail). for 2 weeks we simply rode bikes everywhere. what a fantastic location. no need to rent a car unless you are going to the ruins. got groceries on our bikes and returned beer bottles and cases on bikes.

what activities we chose to do, gail arranged for us. this was like having our own personal assistant while on vacation. everything that was arranged was top notch! monkey river, snorkeling, fishing.

the property was described accurately. the property was very clean & very well maintained. in fact, the only drawback for us was the constant care that has to go on to the property to keep it beautifully maintained. lots of gardeners, painters, etc. we felt badly swimming in the pool while they were all sweating away and working so hard. even though all the guys were working, they were respectful and very nice to us and our kids. they loved the kids!

if we were going to placencia again, we would love to stay at this beautiful home. we were not disappointed at all and were very pleased with our decision to book and stay for 2 weeks. this was a definite favorite vacation for all 4 of us.

We were blown away

  • 5 of 5
When we got to the property and Gail showed us the house all we could say was "WOW"! My wife and I looked at each other and said we got it right.
The pool area and grounds are spectacular. Watching the sunrise from one of the palapas was awesome.
One of the best features of the house is the outdoor shower off of the master bedroom.
Gail and Paul are very gracious hosts. They are always willing to help suggesting tours, restaurants or where to get fresh fruit.
The best compliment we can pay is we will be back.

The Place to Stay In Placencia

  • 5 of 5
Quiet, private, safe and beautiful views. Excellent outdoor activities close at hand that range from diving/snorkeling, boating/kayaking to swimming. Grounds and accommodations were impeccable. The pool and backyard setting is beautiful and the palappa dock the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the lovely Belizean coastline.
Just a 5-8 minute walk to the village was perfect for us. We thoroughly enjoyed walking into town for meal, to get groceries, a swim at the beach or an after dinner ice-cream desert (which we highly recommend).
Gail and Paul’s warm welcome and local knowledge of village restaurants, stores and suggested activities made it a vacation to remember. We will definitely go back to Starfish Villa!

A Wonderful Place to Discover Beautiful Belize

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five concur with the glowing reviews of this holiday property. We decided to leave the cold for a much needed respite during the holiday season. Starfish Villa is every bit as beautiful and more than the photos reveal. You are surrounded by a safe and beautifully adorned holiday compound. Placencia village is on your doorstep and offers a glimpse into real Belize while still providing those amenities that vacationers seek: wonderful restaurants, idyllic and uncrowded beaches and wonderful tropical rum drinks. For those nature lovers - you will not be disappointed. Do follow previous recommendations, especially a tour of Monkey River with Percy. And yes, it was especially delightful to discover and hold real starfish outside our front door in the lagoon!

Kudos to Gail and Paul for going out of their way to make our holiday experience such a positive one from start to finish. You get all that is promised and more. Indeed it was a pleasure to stay in this tropical paradise while getting to know them and all that is beautiful (and authentic) Belize.

We give Villa Starfish 10 stars!

  • 5 of 5
We give Villa Starfish 10stars because 5 stars just wouldn't say enough! From the moment we arrived, we were excited and amazed by the private oasis you have created here. From the spectacular spanish architecture and spacious rooms to the lush tropical gardens and serene waterfall pool, this villa created a private retreat that satisfied every need. It was great to spend day after day here, enjoying the pool and palapa covered dock and it was an easy 15 minute walk to Placencia Village for food, adventure, shopping or drinks. Gail and Paul- you were both great hosts eager to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Our favorite restaurants were Mojo, Dolce Vita, Secret Garden, and Rumfish. Loved Wendy's for breakfast and the Maya Beach Bistro was some of the best food anywhere, any country! This is truly a friendly country with conversations starting easily with both locals and expats. The Sunset Pointe is a beautiful spot on the peninsula-private and serene yet close to the village. Being nestled between the ocean and a lagoon canal offers views in all directions, even the Mayan Mountains! Guests will probably find the pool to be nicer than even most resorts. So if a private pool appeals to you, Villa Starfish is the perfect place!

Honeymoon Destination

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose to go to Placencia for our honeymoon and it turns out we found the perfect place to stay! We had an amazing time. Every day we spent some time in the private pool and out at the palappa. The location is amazing! We are so happy we chose Starfish Villa for our honeymoon and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful vacation.
