About Roger

Our main residence is in Colorado and we appreciate natural beauty and an active outdoor lifestyle. We have been vacationing in the Caribbean since the early 70s and have always searched for the perfect location to build a home. We decided on a Villa in Placencia because of the excellent diving, snorkeling, the beautiful beaches, the clear water and the quiet laid back friendly village atmosphere. No high rise condos here, no cruise boats, but instead lots of excellent beaches, restaurants, bars and plenty of activities to keep you busy.

Roger purchased this villa in 2009

Why Roger chose Belize

We wanted the very best unrestricted Caribbean Ocean views possible along with an ideal climate located near an unspoiled laid back fishing style village. Placencia was the answer. We were seeking privacy and quiet, yet wanted to be close to good restaurants, bars and all the island amenities of diving, swimming, kayaking and fishing. We also wanted to be part of a local community, and the Los Porticos development has provide us that opportunity.

What makes this villa unique

One of the greatest benefits of Placencia is that it can be reached from nearly anywhere in the United States without spending an overnight en route. We enjoy the near perfect climate, the ocean breeze that never seem to stop, the quiet beauty of the Caribbean and of course those crystal clear emerald blue/green waters. It's peaceful and quiet, yet there are so many things to do. You can really set your own pace here.

Everything was perfect. The wifi didn't work, but otherwise, couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Rheamy, Thank you for your nice review Yes, the view and proximity to the beach of this lovely villa is like no other! Our apologies for any issues you may have had regarding the Wi-Fi but we have tested the system and the Wi-Fi is currently working. It could be that there were intermittent internet outages due to the fact the we are in a semi-rural location and due to the fact that the cable company was making upgraded to their system in the past few months. In any case, rest assured that any issues in communication/internet will be addressed immediately by our staff and our guests are always welcome to come to the front des during their stay to bring up any concerns or issues so that we can address them on-site and as they come up. Thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to the possibility of welcoming you back as a returning guest.

Beautiful Ocean Front Villa in Placencia!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in 1C at Los Porticos for our Honeymoon this past summer and couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to visit. The Villa is updated and spacious with unbeatable views of the sea from nearly every angle. Plus with two bedrooms, two and a half baths, open floorplan, and two outdoor balconies there was more than enough room for us and the space can easily accommodate at least two couples or a small family. We loved having access to the private pool right on the beach and also enjoyed the location. Los Porticos is just close enough to the village that we could ride bikes or take a quick cab ride but far enough away that it still felt private. There were also a few restaurants within walking distance which was an added convenience.

The staff at Los Porticos were also great and even though we had trouble booking some excursions due to the time of year they did their best to accommodate. We actually ended up getting caught in a tropical storm which unexpectedly extended our vacation and I can’t say enough about how much they went out of their way to ensure we were taken care of. By the end of our stay we were on a first name basis with most of the staff and the place almost felt like a second home.

Bottom Line: We loved our experience in Placencia. There is plenty to do, the people are nice, the food is good, the scenery is beautiful, and the Villa is amazing! We definitely have plans to go back and when we do we hope to stay here again!

Looking forward to sharing your new home away from home with you again (and with other future guests) as our Los Porticos family grows and flourishes. Take care and all the best, Isabelle (Reservation Desk)

Perfect Villa in Placencia

  • 5 of 5

This villa located at Los Porticos was absolutely perfect! My husband and I visited with another couple. This unit is situated right on the beach and has a beautiful view from every room. The weather was hot when we visited Placencia, so the private plunge pool was a wonderful added bonus! We enjoyed the veranda each morning for coffee and conversation. We used the 4 bikes provided with this unit every day - to explore and to ride into Placencia (about 1 1/2 miles). The staff was friendly and accommodating, ensuring that we had what we needed to make our stay enjoyable. There were 3 excellent restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk from the villa (Mariposa, The Turtle Inn, and Fusion Beach). All the restaurants close to the villa and in the village of Placencia were superb - food was delicious and service was friendly. We felt safe wherever we went - the people of Belize are so wonderful. We will return!

Best location in Placencia!

  • 5 of 5

Los Porticos is a perfect location and has an amazing beach and pools. We explored many other properties/beaches while we were there and when we got back to Los Porticos it confirmed we made the right choice. The beach is kept clean and the lounge chairs with comfortable cushions were available around the pool or on the beach. Moreover, 1C is ocean front upstairs with the private pool for unit 1 that is right on the beach. The grounds are very well kept and the staff is very helpful.

The property is close to town while not being in it. Many of the other rentals we considered are a long drive to the village and we found ourselves going to the store or restaurants often so the short drive or bike ride made it easy.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This villa is lovely. Situated right on the beach. The ocean breezes were used instead of the air conditioning. We were there with our 2 sons who are adults.

Lots of outdoor space which we used especially for meals. Indoor space was wonderful.

Very peaceful and quiet. The staff attended to our every need. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet vacation.

There are lots of activities and sightseeing opportunities which the staff can organize for you.

We loved using the 4 bikes which come with the Villa. We also rented a golf cart for the week. We used this everyday to get to and from town and in the evenings when we went to dinner. This can also be arranged through the staff.

I hope to go back. I would definitely stay here again.
