Beautiful Waterfront Paradise

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 comfortably, up to 9))

The Southern Most Tip of Placencia Peninsula surrounded by water on three sides. The natural beauty of the tropical mangroves, the turquoise waters of the blue Caribbean Sea, the placid marine rich Placencia Lagoon and the Mayan Mountains are the back drop of a 360 degree view from Sunset Pointe Condos.

Stars such as Reese Witherspoon, Nicholas Cage, Tommy Lee Jones and Lauren Hutton, they have all stayed in Placencia, a small fishing village in Southern Belize where Hollywood goes for tropical vacations away from it all. You can vacation here too in secluded luxury at Sunset Pointe, a private, 12 condo, individually owned vacation residence.

Whether you want active adventure or quiet relaxation or both, you can have it during your stay at Sunset Pointe. From outings into the adjacent Caribbean Sea for fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, spearfishing, secluded island hopping, beach combing and sunbathing to road trips into the interior for jungle exploration, zip lining, cave tubing, Mayan ruins, and tomb trekking, it is all available with a private guide at the helm. Alfred Williams, our friend and 30 year licensed local guide in Belize, will take you there in his boat or vehicle. Venture on your own with a lagoon-side 10 minute walk into the heart on Placencia Village for provisions at the supermarket/pharmacy, a stop at the internet cafe, lunch at a local restaurant on the beach or over water, a sip at the local wine bar, and desert at the authentic Italian gelato shop. Rent a golf cart in town and visit one or several small resorts which line the Caribbean side of the peninsula to shop, or take your fresh caught fish which they will prepare for you for a fabulous dinner.

You may want to take the day off and relax with the private amenities of Sunset Pointe which include the pool, hot tub, 360 degree view roof top palapas, Caribbean dock with hammocks, fishing pier with boat slips, outdoor barbecue pit with caretaker on site. Take in the sunrises over the Caribbean Sea and majestic sunsets over the lagoon and Mayan Mountains. After walk into town for some tropical nightlife at the local beach bars which offer drinks and dancing well past midnight. Kayaks and bikes are provided for exploring Lagoon and Village. Sunset Pointe Condos offer a large open floor plan with West Indies style architecture and every room opening onto private covered porches. There are 4 units per building with no shared walls. The common area of each building includes a large breezway on each floor and observation deck on the third level.

Why Helen McCarthy chose Placencia

We have been traveling to Belize since 2014 and love it. There is so much to do and see. The people are so friendly we just kept coming back. We have had some of the best times of our life here. It really is a home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

How many places in the world can you see whales sharks, eagle rays, dolphin, manatee, sea turtles, boas, macaws, toucans, iguanas, jaguar, tapir, gibnut, deer, beautiful tropical fish and then some all in their natural habit. Fishing is some of the best in the world! Belize truly has something for everyone. WE still continue to find new adventures to do. It is complete paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your nice comments. All our guests love the fact that Sunset Pointe is walking/biking distance to every thing in the village yet far enough away to be away from the noise.

Our views from our three third floor widows walks are the best on the Placencia Peninsula.

Please come again.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and filled with all that you would need. Very convenient to town and has 2 docks nearby. The caretaker was very helpful and even let us rent his golf cart! Albert is a local guide used by the owners and we went out twice with him snorkeling and saw some amazing things! We went ziplining river tubing and saw some great waterfalls...all very beautiful! We used a company named Truly Wild Belize and the guys were very knowledgeable, we had a superior lunch and an all around fun day. Would highly recommend these condos!

Family Atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our time in Placencia and at the Sunset Pointe Condos. Fransisco assisted with anything that we needed, including a ride to the next town to have our daughter's shoulder X-rayed. (It was just bruised.) We loved the outdoor decks. The location is great. It's a 1/2 mile walk to town. If you rent this condo, good shoes are a must. The internet service was spotty. Next time I would plan more of the excursions in advance. We would definitely return!

Sunset Pointe Placencia, a highlight of our trip to belize

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Placencia...the condo was just as described ...beautiful and clean! The on-site manager was polite, respectful, very helpful and accomodating! The location is perfect with wonderful views from two breezy decks, a great pool and a short walk or quick ride to town! It was the best of both worlds...Fransisco helped us with anything we needed while we were there and our booking couldn't have been easier...the owners graciously worked with us to make a slight change to our lodging due to some outside work begin completed. Took a wonderful tour of the howler Monkeys that started by boat at Sunset Point. The guide was fantastic! We definitely would recommend Sunset Pointe for both couples or families as the two bedrooms each with their own bathroom gave us plenty of personal space and the second bedroom would be perfect for a couple with children.

The owner was very gracious in helping us to make arrangement prior to our arrival in Placencia with wonderful advice which we heeded. Belize is a quite a place and we have many more spots that we want to discover so we will be going back again sometime next year.

Thanks again for your hospitality and the friendly atmosphere we enjoyed at Sunset.

Hope to see you again!

Take care, GW & MW-Hampton, NH, USA

Owner's Response: Yes, we think we have the best manager who lives on-site with his family to answer any questions our guests might have. Our units were designed with big wraparound verandas to catch the breezes off the Caribbean Sea and the breezes and great views over the lagoon towards Mayan Mountains. Being surrounded by water on three sides and a five minute walk into village makes the location perfect. There are so many great tours to take from Placencia like zip lining over jungle tree tops, hiking in the cocks Comb preserve, visiting Mayan ruins, swimming in beautiful pristine waterfalls, and caving. Of course that is only inland tours, we also have the beautiful Caribbean Sea at our doorstep to dive, snorkel, fish or island hop. So happy you enjoyed our paradise and nature lovers dream destination.

Nicest Place to stay in the village!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as described and was overall what we expected. It was just enough room. The master bedroom was very spacious, but the living area and other bedroom were a bit cramped for us. We had 5 adults and 2 kids and 1 baby. Our kids were scared to sleep in the loft as it was soo high and dark, but they enjoyed playing there during the day. I was pleased with the view and the niceness of the place, but there were a few things that 'bugged' us. It's in the details. There were 2 door handles that were faulty, one on the 2nd bdrm and the other on the main bathroom. This made privacy a bit of an issue. We did tell the caretaker. He said he would fix it the next day, but he never came by to actually do so. The caretakers were great with everything else though. They set up excursions with Alfred (who is wonderful btw) and hooked us up with a great taxi driver, Walter (highly recommended). Rosa (caretaker's wife) watched our kids in the pool for us a couple of afternoons. Their kids were great at including our kids in activities and playing with them. Back to the condo, the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. The best one in the condo was the pullout sofa. The coffee maker was sketchy. It would work sometimes when it felt like it. The rest of the condo was great. The showers were hot, the a/c worked wonderful, and the pool/grounds were beautiful. My father-in-law loved the crow's nest (except for the raccoon poop) and the dock by the ocean. We all enjoyed snorkeling off the dock (easy access) in the ocean. It is sea grass, but we saw some small barracuda and tiny bait fish. We also discovered coral hiding among the sea grass. It was great to introduce our kids to their first time snorkeling. We saw lots of the other cabanas and 'hotels'. We picked the right place and the best place to stay! I hope the caretakers and owner fix the little inconveniences to make the place absolutely perfect. It also would have been nice to know that it is on the second floor as my mother-in-law has a hard time with stairs, but we managed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are happy that your overall experience was enjoyable. We are sorry for the couple of inconveniences you experienced and be assured they will be addressed. We appreciate your calling this to our attention. The two door handles will most certainly be replaced and also we will buy a new coffee maker. As for the beds being hard, we have never had a compliant about this, on the contrary our prior guests have told us the beds were most comfortable. In Central America they do not use box springs so this could have been the reason you thought they were hard. I am sorry that you did not realize that you were staying on second floor. You had a large group of people and the second floor units are the only ones that can accommodate that many people.We certainly could have given you a first floor apartment but you would have had to have rented two. As for the raccoon poop our caretaker does clean the steps but it seems the raccoons like the Widows Walks as much as our guests because of the spectacular 360 degree view of the Caribbean Sea, Mayan Mountains, Placencia Lagoon, and village. We are the only condos on the peninsula that have this great view because we are at the very tip of the peninsula. Thank you again for taking the time to write.

Paradise in Placencia

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Placencia...the condo was just as described ...high end and clean! The location is perfect ...allowing privacy with wonderful views from two breezy decks, a great pool and a beautiful pier over the water offered more views, shade and breeze...yet we were only a short walk or quick ride to town...absolutely no more than five minutes. It was the best of both worlds...Fransisco helped us with anything we needed while we were there and our booking couldn't have been easier...the owners graciously worked with us to make a slight change to our itinerary when our flights were delayed and were able to make it work for us to stay on an extra day with no hassle...we were able to take advantage of the great fishing offered in the area with our fabulous guide Eloy picking us up by boat at Sunset Point. Others in our group were picked up for an enjoyable day of scuba diving! We were two couples...without kids this time ...but would recommend for couples or families...two bedrooms each with their own bathroom gave us plenty of personal space and the second bedroom would be perfect for a couple with children...we hope to return again and would encourage anyone traveling to Placencia to stay at Sunset Point!
