Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with views of Caribbean Sea and Mayan Mountains

This is the best location in Placencia! Sunset Pointe sits on the southern tip of the Placencia peninsula and is surrounded by water on three sides. Our condo is on the top floor with gorgeous views and a wonderful breeze. The 2 bedroom 2 bath condo sleeps up to 6 people. Each room opens to a covered private outside porch through French doors.

The condo includes a shared swimming pool and thatched roof viewing dock on the Caribbean for your enjoyment. There is a caretaker on site to assist you, and a local fishing/tour guide is available. The unit is just blocks from the center of Placencia Village which features restaurants, beach bars, entertainment, beaches, and grocery markets.

Rental of our condo includes the use of 4 bicycles and 2 kayaks and the use of a local Belize cell phone.

Getting to Placencia...

Fly into Belize International Airport and then take a 35 minute flight to Placencia airstrip via one of the local Belize airlines (Tropic Air or Maya Island Air). The other option is to rent a vehicle at the international airport and take a scenic 3.5 hour drive to Placencia.

Belize is often referred to as one of the Seven Underwater Wonders of the World. The world's second largest barrier reef runs parallel to its coast. However, the barrier reef is not the only factor that makes Belize one of the world's most popular destinations for scuba divers and snorkelers.

Many of the small islands, known as 'cayes,' that lie off the coast of the Belizean mainland have their own coral reefs, with spectacular underwater gardens teeming with sea life of all types.

The clear turquoise waters (which average 79-84 degrees) and the proximity of the barrier reef make Belize a favorite destination for divers and snorkelers. The ocean floor ranges from 5 to 35 feet, so both divers and snorkelers have the opportunity to swim in what seems like an underwater aquarium, teeming with colorful tropical fish of all sizes and types and beautiful coral formations.

The 'cut' (channel) leading out to sea functions as a sort of 'fish freeway' for many large fish, including giant groupers, barracuda and nurse sharks, a timid and unaggressive shark species. Divers and snorkelers may enjoy a close encounter with a sea turtle.

Fishing in Belize

Belize is a mecca for those interested in fishing. All kinds of fishing: spin, fly, trolling - can be experienced all year long, and the abundance of game fish guarantees excellent sport.

The estuaries, inlets and mouths to the many rivers are known for their tarpon, snook and jacks. The lagoons and grass flats are known for the bonefish, permit and barracuda. The coral reefs support grouper, snapper, jack and barracuda while the deeper waters off the drop off are home to sailfish, marlin, bonito and dorado.

Fishing is great all along the coast of Belize. Any of the many rivers which empty into the Caribbean along Belize's coasts can guarantee a daily catch. Most of your guides and boatmen speak English so learning where and what to fish will be no problem.

The waters surrounding Placencia abound with a great variety of saltwater fishing and the area boasts some of the best fishing guides in the country. Most types of fish, including bone fish and tarpon, can be caught year-round. Within 15 minutes of leaving the dock, you can be fishing in tidal flats or in blue water hundreds of feet deep.

Spectacular ❤️

  • 5 of 5

Such a memorable week! The condo is so beautiful inside and out; a clean and comfortable home away from home. We chose to get around on the kayaks and bicycles and enjoyed the gem that is Placencia. Simple life, friendly and welcoming people everywhere we went. The caretakers were very helpful in helping us to schedule our amazing excursions and also transportation to airport. We loved staying here hope to return soon!

Beautiful surroundings, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Belize. We traveled with another couple. We are glad we chose Placencia for our first week and very happy we chose this lovely 2 bedroom 2 bathroom property.

The property is very well appointed. The beds were VERY comfortable, a welcome surprise. The balance of the furnishings exceeded our expectations as well.

The kitchen was well stocked providing us with everything we needed to prepare two meals of the Amber Jack and Barracuda that we caught.

The location (at the very end of the peninsula) affords great views from two 2nd floor balconies for sunrise or sunset.

Sunset Pointe is both close enough to walk to great restaurants and bars yet far enough away when you just want to relax on the balcony or by the pool.

The staff were friendly and generous with their time whenever we needed advice or had questions as well.

All in all, a great time, great value wonderful memories.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We lucky enough to stay in this gorgeous condo earlier in January. It was even prettier than the pictures and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The neighborhood is quiet, the sunsets were gorgeous, the maintenance staff helpful and the kitchen was perfect for whipping up frothy tropical drinks or fresh lobster tails on the grill. We loved riding the bikes and our friends enjoyed the kayaks several times during our stay.

Do yourself a favor and rent this amazing and well-appointed condo in paradise! The owners are great to work with and you won't regret it!

Marathon weekend

  • 5 of 5

Placencia is such a cool and laid back town, that fits a great Vacay! The condo was perfectly placed with awesome accessibility and View. The beach was perfect for just swimming long miles ,so goggles and bright caps were a perfect addition. Then ,Oceanside restaurants and bars were right there to indulge afterwards. We enjoyed also great food and we spent all the calories on the End of World Marathon on Dec6 with tons of locals and tourists, which for the running enthusiast should be a must ;)

Absolutely Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were SO pleased with this condo. Our stay was for one week, and it was just perfect. The condo was decorated pretty, it was very clean, and it was well stocked. The views are absolutely breathtaking from each side!!! Porches are located on each side, so throughout the day you have sun on one side and shade on the other-perfect! The groundkeeper was very helpful and nice. The owners were extremely helpful, kind, and assessable to us. No need for transportation as the village is a safe short walk away. We are looking forward to our next trip Placencia! Connie is awesome! On overall accommodations we would give it a 10+

We hope to go back to Placencia and stay in this amazing condo!!!
