We live in New Hampshire, USA and have family and friends in Placencia that have lived there for over twenty years.
Rand Lounsbury and Maggie Myers purchased this bungalow in 2012
We actually fell in love with Placencia on our first visit 15 years ago. Once we decided to build a small home there our search for the ideal location began. We found this lot that faces the sea, with unobstructed views of the Caribbean. Our property is a the end of a small community development, with common land that can't be developed between our property and the beach. The home is built from local hardwood to be strong and beautiful. Facing east is the sea and looking toward the back of the house to the west, a glass window in the peak of the wall lets in the western sun.
The view of the Caribbean Sea from the hammock on the veranda is just stunning. There is always a breeze coming off the water and if the breeze is up, you can hear the waves breaking on the beach. The house is a nice size for two and with the open concept, peaked roof and ceiling fans, one is always comfortable.
My husband and I had an amazing eight day stay at Casita Margarita this past week. Laying in the hammock every morning with coffee in hand watching the sunrise over the ocean was exactly what we were hoping for. Walking along the boardwalk, or along the beach to town or just up the road to the grocery store makes this the perfect location. We were treated with such hospitality and great service from the property manager. Had great tours set up for us through her and great recommendations for local scene. We will definitely be back for a third trip next year, if not sooner. Thanks Rand!!!
Great place to stay in Placencia. This is a wonderful house -- on the east-facing deck we drank coffee in the mornings, looking out at the Caribbean, and then in the evenings we could watch the fireflies. The breeze from the east cooled us at night, and because of where the house is located we could see the stars and hear the crickets. This place is on the north edge of town, and an easy walk to all of the local shops and restaurants. Penny was great, very accommodating, getting us to and from the airport and providing useful information on the local businesses, attractions, and activities. I only wish that we'd had more than a week to stay there.
Had an excellent time at the property. Owner was very helpful when booking appointment and making sure all needs were met before traveling out of country. Other family members live (full-time that own local bar/restaurant) nearby house and were able to transport to/from house as well as recommendations for local items (dining, scuba, sailing, groceries, etc). House was fully stocked with all necessary items. I was checked on every few days to make sure I had everything I needed. Had entire beach area to myself and this is far enough away from larger accommodations but within about a 10 minute walk into "town." Placencia was exactly the place I was looking for - very low key, cost effective, not busy, friendly people.
We stayed here for twenty days and loved every minute of it. We rented bicycles from Jak's and rode them every day. The house is in a great location, close to everything in the village. Penny is very helpful and gave us some great information. We hope to return next year but maybe stay longer. Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.
This observation is being made live! I have been here long enough to see 50 sunrises and sunsets, I swim in the Caribbean each day 75 yards away, sitting on the veranda or in the hammock watching the skyline, cannot say enough! I asked for privacy, ocean, & all the comforts of home. Walk, ride a bike or golf cart, thumb a ride, walk down the beach, this is the house and location to accomplish that. GREAT for 1 person or a couple or a family.
Placencia Village is situated at the southern most point of a 20 mile long peninsula. The peninsula is not more than a few miles across at its widest point. Facing east one looks out on the sparkling Caribbean sea with numerous cays and the 2nd longest barrier reef in the world. To the west is the lagoon rimed by mangrove trees which is teeming with marine life. Make the short walk down the beach, or the historic sidewalk into the village, or head north up the beach for miles of uninterrupted beach combing.
