About David or Lori Brickley
We live in northern Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. Maintaining a hectic professional lifestyle criss-crossing between the private and public sectors, we have traveled extensively throughout the world. In 2006 while sailing and snorkeling in the world's second largest barrier reef, we came upon Placencia and fell in love with it immediately. We enjoy active vacations. Recently we hiked in the Swiss Alps and the Italian Dolimites. Other trips included hiking to Machu Piccu, Peru the Milford Track in New Zealand; snorkeling in Bora Bora and walking the streets of Rome and Athens. However, we also come back to our little piece of paradise to recharge our batteries either as just the two of us or with family and friends.

Why David or Lori Brickley chose Placencia
We selected Placencia because it was unspoiled by mass tourism, yet offered us a cornicopia of beauty and activities in the Caribbean Sea or Mayan mountains. As we watched Sunset Pointe being built we insured that it was of the highest quality construction, built to Florida hurrican standards. The interior design is top rated with upscale finishing. OUR SECOND FLOOR LOCATION PROVIDES VAULTED CEILINGS THROUGHOUT THE VILLA AND SWEEPING VIEWS OF THE SEA AND MAYAN MOUNTAINS.
What makes this condo unique
Our kids and grandchildren joined us for a week over New Years. Here's why one grandchild exclaimed: 'This has been the best vacation I ever had!' Day 1: Flew into Placencia, unpacked, took in the sweeping views from the two 2nd floor verandas, enjoyed the pool, walked around the village, watched the sunset over the Caribbean Sea and Mayan Mountains, had dinner at a great restaurant, and watched the day end on our private dock.
Day 2: Our guide met us and we boated across the sea viewing manatees and porpoises arriving at Monkey River where be observed birds, turtles, crocodiles, topical flowers, etc. Then we hiked through the jungle seeing all sorts of flora, then coming upon howling monkeys that we could hear a mile away. After returning home, it was a swim in the pool, and another great dinner.
Day 3: Drove to Belize's longest zip line course, zipping through the jungles from one station to the next. Great fun for all; our 9 and 13 year old grandchildren has a blast. Back home it was another swim in the pool and another wonderful meal.
Day 4: Our guide met us at our dock and we spent the day snorkeling in the keys. The coral and fish were abundant and varied. The best way to describe these hundreds of keys (small islands) is to think about the Corona beer commercials. We then swam with the turtles, eagle rays and manta rays. Back at the condo it was another dip in the pool and dinner at another great restaurant.
Day 5: Our guide met us and we drove to Xunantunich, an unbelievable Mayan ruin, where we climber up to the top of El Castillo, the main pyramid rising some 130 feet above the main plaza, taking in panoramic views of Belize and Guatemala. Returning home it was time for the pool and Jacuzzi, a wonderful dinner ending with drinks on the dock.
Day 6: Drove to Cave River and spent the day tubing in mountain caverns for about six miles underground. Walking back we didn't see a jaguar, but saw the footprints on our trail. Day 7: Home
