Perfect beach, perfect location

We stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The owner, manager and caretakers were all very helpful and kind. The beach at this house is truly amazing. The beaches in placencia are all lovely of course, but this one is lovingly tended and just....perfect. Lots of shade on the beach (as someone who grew up on the pacific this always amazed me!) with carefully tended and pruned trees. Hammocks and great beach furniture. The giant green chair under the tree is the perfect spot to enjoy the morning with a book. I even noticed people walking down from the fancy reports to the south commenting on how perfect the Dome House beach was and taking pictures. There is a garden between the house and the water that is full of flowering shrubs and vines. Plenty of places for kids to explore on this large property. We saw many, many cool lizards, frogs and a giant tarantula (not in the house!) on the property. From the dock we saw fish and string-rays.

The location is perfect. We also rented bikes and found that a good solution to getting to town. We did rent a car for a couple trips to the interior of Belize but it was great not to have to rent one the whole time just to get to town. It was also perfect, for us, to be a mile away from town since we are a family of introverts and wanted lots of quiet time for reading and beach-staring.

The house was really interesting and fun. I would agree about the pots and pans - a large knife was sorely missed as well. I really enjoyed all the old diving magazines :). Anna kept us full of towels and clean sheets - she and Pablo were great to have next door.

Owner's Response: All of us at Pearl Beach are glad you enjoyed your visit. New pots and pans are in the kitchen!

Reading your review made me wish I were there right now. We enjoyed hosting you in the beautiful country of Belize. Come back anytime....
Thanks

The Pearl Beach Dome House was a great choice for all 7 of us! 3 grandchildren and 4 adults. Rented bikes to get into town. The setting was splendid and private. We enjoyed the beach and the caretakers Anna and Pablo were very helpful! A new
set of pots and pans would be my only recommendation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up...the pots and pans sometimes 'travel', leaving the house w/ an assortment. We will get right on that issue. We are happy you enjoyed the peace-fullness of the property...

Owner's Response: It has been unseasonably wet this year in Placencia making it difficult to make repairs, however we are glad you enjoyed the property. We are repairing the roof right now.

Wonderful, eccentric, beautiful, fun!

We have never seen a house like this, and we love it. Think Star Trek in a beautiful, tropical garden. Truly a special experience. We stayed for a week, and had a great time.

Having rented the house in direct contact with the lovely owner, we were met as we arrived by the manager of the property. He was extremely helpful, cheery and shared valuable info and tips for restaurants, trips, dive centres etc.

The house was very clean, and the housekeeper had made really cute arrangements (snails, elephants, hearts) with a VAST number of towels - everything from hand towels to beach towels. Really generous amount, we didn't even have time to use all of them! And the house was filled with flowers!

It is situated about 5 minutes drive from the town, right next to the little airport. I had worried about the noise of the airplanes - there was no need to! We barely noticed the planes (not that many flights, and the planes are really small). It was really nice to be able to get into the little town so quickly, yet have the bliss of the quiet location of this house to retreat to. It is also really REALLY nice to be able to start the day with breakfast "at home" and then go straight for a dip in the ocean.

The walk to the beach on the property is about 40 seconds, through a really beautiful wild tropical garden with lovely flowers and cute little lizards (if you're lucky and fast enough to spot them). There is plenty of natural shade on the beach.

The house keepers who live next door are more than friendly, extremely kind and helpful with informaion and everything.

This is a really happy place. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Even our 17-year old loved it! I would recommend it to anyone. I am not being paid to write this ;)

Owner's Response: our family fondly refers to the house as the "Mother Ship" ... we are glad you enjoyed it as much as we do!
