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.

David or Lori Brickley purchased this condo in 2007

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

Fishing, snorkeling and eating lunch on beautiful, isolated Hatchet Caye - what's not to love!!

Fishing, snorkeling and eating lunch on beautiful, isolated Hatchet Caye - what's not to love!!
  • 5 of 5
We flew into Belize City and took a small plane down to Placencia. The plane flew low so we got to see a lot of the country side. Upon arriving at the little airport, a taxi took us to this beautiful condo located at the end of the peninsula. Everything was so well-stocked and comfortable, we enjoyed every minute. After getting hooked up with "Mikey Mile" for a golf cart, we were able to easily go back and forth to town - which was about a mile away - for whatever we needed. Although we cooked in every night, there were plenty of restaurants and bars in town if that's what you like to do. The grocery stores were well stocked (even had Blue Bell Ice Cream) and the produce stands had everything you needed.
The key to a great time is doing your boat excursions with Alfred Williams, who is a local and can navigate the Carribean with his eyes closed. The day after we arrived, we hired him to go fishing and snorkeling at a very reasonable price. We caught 3 grouper - the biggest being 30 pounds, snorkeled with sharks and stingrays and even watched him net us a lobster for dinner. It was a great day and so much fun. We also hired him for a Monkey River tour another day which was also interesting. He even came and cooked fish for us at the condo complex. If you need to be constantly entertained or want a "Miami Beach"-type vacation, this is not for you. You have to be ready for a slower pace with alot of time staring at the water, sunsets and listening to the pitter-patter of rain on the roof at night. David and Lori the owners of the condo could not have been more accomodating. We will definitely be back. Just a note, although most of the grocery stores and restaurants take credit cards, you may want to bring some cash if you plan on doing the excursions. They have some banks in town but only give you Belize dollars. Bon Voyage

Beautiful Condo

We recently returned from a stay at Sunset Point, unit 7. It was well maintained and very nicely appointed. Lori was great to work with and was very proactive with any issue we had. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone who asked.

The best vacation yet

  • 5 of 5
As all the other reviewers have stated Lori and Dave's condo was just perfect. We loved the location. It had beautiful views and was very relaxing. We were able to walk to town at any time of day which is a real plus. There was no need for a car. We took many snorkeling trips with Ian a friend of Alfred's. He was a great guide and made sure we were well looked after. We even swam with the sea turtles. Thanks for sharing Lori and Dave. We hope to return next year!

Great time

  • 5 of 5
Great place to go and relax. The property is as described by the listing. The front porch was huge and we'll furnished. We did rent a gulf cart and went from one end of Placencia to the other visiting all the great resorts and restaurants along the way. Will come back again. Francisco was a joy to deal with as he made our stay very easy. Sitting by the private condo's pool help also. The owners are great to deal with. 100 % professionals and very friendly. The communications was great. Thank you John & Leigh

9 Glorious Days in Belize

  • 5 of 5
Lori and David have an absolutely beautiful place in Placencia. The condominium was full of nice furnishings, fully usable and stocked kitchen, and nice comfy beds. We were a family of four with two children ages 5 and 8. We enjoyed the use of the on-site pool, and my son fished every day from the dock and caught at least a half dozen fish every time. Each morning we'd brew up some coffee and breakfast featuring local fruits and sit on the front porch that overlooks the lagoon and watch the boats leaving Placencia heading out for the day. The kitchen had great pots, pans, dishes and condiments. Unlike some other vacation rentals we had in the past, this kitchen was fully functional and we used it everyday for at least one meal.

We did rent a golf cart from a place in town (expensive) since we had the two smaller children and we would end up going into town 2-3 times each day. The condo is in a very nice area truly surrounded by water on three sides, but without the golf cart would have been a 10-15min walk each way.

The on site caretaker and his family were extremely accommodating and if you can spare the time and the dollars, definitely ask the them about an Alfred Williams trip to the reef. The weather wasn't ideal during our time in Placencia so we never made it out to the reef (the seas were very rough the whole week we were there), but we did make it halfway out to some of the cayes and did some snorkeling and Alfred managed to catch 6 lobsters for us!

Overall a truly memorable vacation due much in part to the truly luxury accommodations and amenities on site! Would recommend this condo without hesitation!

I stayed here with a group of friends - it was wonderful to have all the beds available for a group of women in our late 20's/early 30's. The home would also work well for a family with children, but all of us slept well as adults in the beds. Very comfortable place, extremely clean and appealing.

Everything in the condo is as pictured. The kitchen is well appointed, all the wood finishes are beautiful and quality, marble counters, etc. The owners have done a great job of supplying enough towels and linens, as well as great equipment for cooking your own meals.

It is a short (5-10 minute) walk into town, though, and the restaurants are tempting so you might not do much of your own cooking! We enjoyed a snorkelling trip and lots of reading / enjoying the view to relax on our Spring Break from teaching.

Placencia is a small fishing village situated at the end of a 23-mile narrow peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in southern Belize. With a population of approximately 500, it can only be described as what one would have pictured Key West, Florida looked like a hundred years ago. The locals are friendly making you feel at home within hours, the dollar is used everywhere, and the scenery is spectacular. The world's second largest barrier reef is offshore providing outstanding opportunities for fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. The wildlife, plants and Mayan ruins will blow you away. If you are looking for a McDonald's or other chain restaurants you are in the wrong place. However, the varied international and Belizian cuisine is delicious. Placencia offers you the option of being active all day doing things you only read about, or just sitting by the pool, your private balcony or our dock with a drink in your hand and watching the sun rise or set, and the boats sailing by. It's quite a place yet to be scared by impact tourism. You will fall in love with Placencia as we have.
