The Maya Lodge was built by an English ocean lover and displays much of the native wood and architecture of Belize. Both bedrooms are large and furnished with a double/queen bed. Each bedroom has a private full bath with hot shower. The furniture throughout the lodge is crafted locally from native Belizean hardwoods. Food can be purchased locally and prepared in the full kitchen.
A hammock is provided and can be set on the covered deck or on the upper crow's nest where the Maya Mountains and gorgeous sunsets are viewed. Swimmers can use the canal at the back of the house or walk to the beach in about 4 minutes.
The owner of the Maya Lodge acquired the lodge primarily for easy access to the the nearby islands and use a 23 foot Mexican skiff to fish and snorkel.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
Belize is easily reached by U.S. airlines (American, Continental and Delta). Upon arrival at the international airport in Belize, the visitor can fly Maya Island Air or Tropic Air directly to Placencia (45 min). Unlike most other beach locations in Belize, travelers have the option of renting a car in Belize City and driving to the village. The water and islands in southern Belize near Placencia are less traveled and offer fabulous diving, snorkeling and fishing. Placencia also has the best beach in Belize.
Placencia in somewhat quieter than Ambergris and Caulker but still has wonderful beachfront restaurants and live local music. Many guides are available who can provide transportation to nearby islands, Monkey River tours, and Maya Mountain visits. The waters are noted for permit, bonefish, tarpon and many other fish.
My wife and I just spent half of February and half of March at Maya Lodge, a full four weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. We spent a lot of time just enjoying the warm to hot temperatures and enjoying the local food both at restaurants and home cooked at Maya Lodge from local fresh fruit and vegetable markets. Maya Lodge is an excellent base for going off on adventures. We did the Monkey River tour seeing three crocodiles, three manatees, a bunch of howler monkeys, and lots of birds. We did the day tour to see the Mayan Ruins at Xunantunich, well worth it. We also rented a "golf cart" for a day to explore the Peninsula itself. Attending the Volunteer Fire Department's Flaming Hearts Ball was indeed a ball with good music and food to be sampled from all of the local eateries. Staying at Maya Lodge makes everything else easy and enjoyable with it's spaciousness, fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable sleeping. The Lodge is within easy walking distance to everything one needs. Stefano, the local property manager is helpful whenever needed (for us only rarely). This is our third stay in Maya Lodge. It is truly our home-away-from home in Placencia.
My husband and I just spent the month of November in Placencia at the Maya Lodge. Placencia is well worth visiting. It is a friendly, quaint little village. Maya Lodge is well appointed, warm and comfortable. Located close enough to "downtown" and grocery to walk, yet just far enough to be quiet and private. The location offers immediate access to the lagoon for kayaking or other water sports. The sea is a short walk or kayak away. The owners are friendly and easy to work with. Stephano, the property manager, greats you upon your arrival with a host of information about the house and the village. Stephano is available to answer questions throughout the stay. Nicolette, the gal that lives in the lower level apartment is a joy. She is quiet, polite and also very helpful if you have questions. We felt welcome in the village and at the Lodge throughout our stay. We will return to Maya Lodge in the future.
We have stayed at this property twice now in 2013 for a total of six weeks. Maya Lodge is our first choice for a home away from home in Belize both in high and low seasons. We were first attracted by the listing description and photos, and find that the Lodge met our expectations. Both the owner and local manager, Stefano, are very helpful. We have recommended this property to both friends and relatives.
This house has anything you need to feel comfortable, spacious common areas, rooms with good ventilation, great location, it´s clean and it has nice views and a great price.
I stayed there with my boyfriend and another couple of friends and we had a great time, enjoying the hamacas on the deck, cooking breakfast in the spacious kitchen, eating in the beautiful and huge dinner tables, and just having fun at this beautiful house that gives you a cozy welcoming when you go in.
The manager Stefano is really nice and he´ll tell you anything you need to know about the area. Also Lou the owner, was very helpful and nice.
You´ll have a great time in this small village and this house will definitely be a good choice for you to chill after a good day in the beach.
My daughter and I spent a week in the lodge and it was marvelous. Nicoletta and Stefano were so nice and went out of their way to help us. Also, though we never saw the house keeper, Sofia, she cleaned our room and did a great job with it. Also, despite bad lighting on the street leading up to the house, we were fine, though my daughter was slightly scared of stepping on a snake after she almost did the first night there. The house was gorgeous on the inside and out and always kept clean. Also, Nicoletta lived right under us so if we needed her help with anything, she was right there. We had such a great time and would recommend it to everyone and anyone!
We stayed at the Maya Lodge for almost a month and could not have been happier!
From its architecture to its beautiful hardwood interior, the Maya Lodge offers an authentic Belizean experience. Its huge, open common area lets your family congregate, while the bedrooms and sleeping lofts give everyone their own space. A fully equipped kitchen and built-in laundry room mean you don't have to leave if you don't want to!
All the comforts of home are right there, in a beautiful, natural setting convenient to all the amenities yet set off the main drag for privacy.
I would recommend Maya Lodge to anyone!
