If you are looking for the excitement of Cancun, this is not the place. If you are looking for privacy and seclusion, this is the place. If you are looking to kick back, plan your own days, choose whether to go anywhere or not, this is the place. If you want a non stressful vacation, this is the place!
Our house is a Belizean Hardwood Mennonite home up on stilts, designed to capture the refreshing sea breeze. It is open and designed for comfort, easy keeping and relaxation.
Enjoy the view of the lagoon while swinging in your hammock on your covered front deck, overlooking a beautiful stretch of water and mountains. Enjoy swinging in a hammock on the 'morning porch' watching the birds come an eat at the porch feeders.
Your kitchen is well-equipped and you find all the comforts needed for cozy self-sufficiency. Cable TV, wireless internet, and bicycles all included in the price.
Maya Beach is located midway down the 16 mile Placencia Peninsula in Southern Belize. Along the east side of the peninsula are white sandy beaches and the Caribbean Sea.
The west side is a mangrove filled lagoon with the majestic Maya Mountains in the background, towards Guatemala.
We are approx. 5 miles north of the Placencia airstrip, and 8 miles north of Placencia village. The main roads are paved and the side roads are well maintained and graded. We are mid-peninsula with a well stocked Belizean grocery store, world class restaurants,and a couple of beach bars located within walking distance. We are far enough away though that you can enjoy peace and quiet, while enjoying the feel of the breeze and the many different exotic bird sounds. The peninsula is flat and lends to easy comfortable bike riding, running and walking.
Flights come into the country several times a day and there are 2 smaller airlines that fly from Belize City to Placencia.It is about a 30 to 45 minute flight. You can rent a car in Belize City and enjoy the drive through the Maya Mountains on the Hummingbird Highway. The drive takes about three hours. You can also rent a vehicle in Placencia at the airport.
Reva’s Pearl is ideal for couples, families and honeymooners but will sleep 4-6 people comfortably.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a second bedroom with 2 twin beds and full size futon in the living room.
Inside is fully varnished hardwood, A/C in the master bedroom, ceiling fans, a floor fan, private bath with tiled shower, and hot water.
The “Pearl” is self-accommodating. We provide you with all your needed supplies like sheets, towels, beach towels, kitchen towels.
There is a washer/dryer in “the basement”. Your kitchen comes equipped with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, gas stove, coffee maker,dishes and glasses, cooking utensils, sugar, salt, pepper, and spices. A nice tradition has been started by former occupants who have left dry goods
for further use, a “pay it forward” mentality that works for everyone. As stated above, there is a grocery store just down the road There are several other grocery stores and farmers markets in Seine Bight and Placencia.
Sooo...we hope we have caught your attention and hear from you soon.
We purchased this wonderful place because we love to dive ,snorkel, sun and eat well. We found the Placencia Peninsula to fill these requirements and then some. We love the people and the place.
Julie and Doug purchased this house in 2005
Although not on the beach, the property is protected and quiet. It is literally less than a 2 minute bike ride to the beaches. The view is of the lagoon and mountains. Beautiful sunsets.
Quiet, safe established neighborhood.
We loved the house it has such a lovely warm atmosphere. It has everything you will need for your stay there. Well stocked kitchen but the local food is so good and so cheap and variety is great, you will not use the kitchen much. Bed was comfortable but too small after being used to a california king. That is the only negative and Im really looking. Melissa and the owners make sure that everything is ok with your stay they are lovely people.
We recently rented Reva's Pearl for a 4 week period and could not have been more satisfied. Everything we needed was there for cooking (including a BBQ), keeping in touch (WiFi) and entertained (American Satellite TV Channels - great for football!). The house is perfectly located and most days the bikes and Richie's Bus Line were all we needed to get around. The real surprise about Placencia is the world class restaurants both within walking distance as well as in Placencia Village. To name a few; Maya Beach Bistro - doesn't get any better anywhere (at least in Canada) - breakfast and dinner menu's to die for at extremely low prices; Mango's - try a slider (burger), best $4 burger you will ever have and great watering hole for ex-pats on the weekend; Mojo's in Placencia Village - amazing food served by a great owner and staff; Barefoot Bar in Placencia Village - best beach food in Central America; Wendy's (Placencia Village) - best $5 lunch specials on the planet. If you get the impression we were amazed by the food your are right, this was totally unexpected - a culinary holiday in Belize. Couple of other suggestions; if you are booking Monkey River Tours etc we strongly suggest you go through Trip and Travel in Placencia - they have the best guides; for travel to and from Belize City to Placencia we suggest you consider booking a shuttle service from Belize. It is cheaper than flying and you will get what amounts to a guided tour of 1/2 of the country by the drivers. We suggest you book through Discounted Belize Shuttles and Tours - Google it or call 501 624 5022. It is owned by a Belize Family in which all of the employees are brothers, cousins etc. The service is top flight and they are EXTREMELY dependable. Support the local people, use these guys and you will not be disappointed. If you want to rent a car (which we encourage) to go see the Mayan Ruins, the Blue Hole etc etc) and are staying at Reva's Pearl a transplanted South African / Canadian (Edmonton) runs a small car rental agency of "Older vehicles" and will offer the best weekly rate you will find (was $400 US) - call Phil 630 0097
We were obviously impressed by Belize, Placencia, Maya Beach and Reva's Pearl. If you spend time there and do not come back thoroughly relaxed then your case is hopeless. This is not a quasi all inclusive vacation spot or location, it is however a small chunk of paradise.
Awesome place at 5 min on foot from Beach. The owner was very attentive and gave us a lot of information on how to get to the house, what to do in Maya Beach, where to shop and where to eat. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place and will personally stay there again if I ever find myself in Belize again.
My wife and I were looking for a quite, relaxing week and we couldn't have picked a better destination. The peacefulness of Maya Beach and the comfort of the house could not be beat. Ivy, at the local market, was very friendly, as were all the people we met. Fred and Jacque, the property manager who live next door, were very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. We highly recommend Reva's Pearl for anyone who wants to unwind.
Reva's Pearl was delightful. We had a very relaxed week in spite of rain and clouds. The house was well furnished and equipped. We shopped at the nearby grocery store and cooked most of our meals.
The next-door neighbors were helpful and nice to talk to.
The view is beautiful, and we enjoyed two restaurants--Green Parrot and Bistro.
