About The Owner

My husband and I have owned a home in Placencia for 13 years. We loved visiting the Florida Keys until it became so crowded with people and boats. The Peninsula and Placencia remind us of what the Keys and Key West must have been like 75 or 100 years ago.

Where else in the world can you dive or fish on the second longest Barrier Reef in the world in the morning and cave or hike through pristine jungle mountains and go to waterfalls in the afternoon.

We love it here because no other country in Central America offers so much for so little effort in such a tiny land mass. Add to this the environmentally caring infrastructure and English speaking, friendly, laid-back people and you soon realize that Belize really does have it all.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Placencia

The fishing is some of the best in the world and the wildlife viewing is spectacular. It is an adventure lovers paradise.

What makes this house unique

Private yet a five minute walk into the village for great restaurants, bars, and shopping, and local guides will pick you up onsite for tours.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of meeting Janis and Eric before they left to go back home. The property at Sunset Point is beautiful and does not disappoint. The apartment was quiet and relaxing looking out over the lovely garden.

The docks are wonderful to sit and read and catch a breeze. Everything was even better than described, clean and well maintained and I love that it all fits into the island theme from the woodwork to paint, tile and decoration.

I went searching for the elusive whale sharks with Alfred and although we did not see any we did plenty of snorkeling and fishing. I highly recommend Alfred for a perfect experience!

My favorite restaurants are Wendy's, Cozy Corner and Tutti Fruiti for gelato and Above Grounds for great coffee. I missed my favorite restaurant La Dolce Vita which I didn't find out until I left that they moved location to closer to the airport but highly recommend if you want some good Italian.

Thank you Janis for putting together this beautiful retreat and sharing it with the rest of us!

Owner's Response: We love sharing our piece of paradise with guests from around the world. The apartment is furnished with all local art and woodwork and carvings from Belize. Placencia village is small but has such a variety of world class restaurants to suit every taste and most all just a short walk from the Pointe House. Happy you were able to go with Alfred, if anyone can find a Whale Shark he can , he is all our guests favorite guide. Love to have you return to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Pointe House and look for the gentle giants of the sea!

Great amenities and close to town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the condo! The use of the kayaks and bikes made the arrangement perfect. The condo is at the end of the peninsula and you can view the mangroves and ocean from the deck. We watched the sunset from dock. Very quiet location. Rode the bikes in town to pick up groceries but we mostly ate at restaurants. The condo was decorated perfectly with beautiful belizean art. Took the kayaks down the canal and to the pier area. The on-site caretaker is very helpful too! All in all an excellent experience!

Absolutely Wonderful Place - Inside and Out!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a total gem! It was absolutely beautiful both inside and outside! Everything was very well taken care, both inside and outside! We were so impressed with the the details of the house and the amazing scenery and landscaping outside. We enjoyed the use of the pool, kayaks and bikes, as well as the nice kitchen inside.

It was such a nice place and experience!

Hats off to you and all the people who made it such a great place to be!

With Gratitude!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being a repeat guest at the Pointe House and Sunset Pointe. We have many guests that return year after year for the reasons you just stated. We are in the village but being at the southern point it is very quiet. The Pointe House is the last house on the 23 mile long Placencia Peninsula which makes this location very private.

Wonderful Return Trip to Sunset Pointe

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Sunset Pointe for a very enjoyable, but too short, eight day visit. The apartment and grounds are really beautiful, and very private. The deck at the back overlooks a lovely garden, surrounded by mangroves and ocean on three sides. As the name suggests, it is a perfect spot to enjoy the sunset (and your favorite libation). Janis was very helpful in recommending good restaurants in town, what to bring, and possible excursions. We really enjoyed our snorkeling and fishing excursion to Silk Caye with Alfred, who is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I also had two excellent days fly fishing with guides recommended by Janis. Although you can walk into town, we made good use of the bicycles as a quicker and cooler way to get there. We also kayaked into town one morning and stopped for fish tacos and Belikin beer for lunch. Today, I am back in the frozen north and wondering why we did not stay longer.....

Wonderful stay at Sunset Pointe!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from an amazing trip to Belize. We stayed at Sunset Pointe for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The accommodations were fantastic. The privacy was also great. The bed is extremely comfortable and the AC and Wifi were the best we had in Belize. It was a nice walk into town and didn't feel taxing in any way. Janis is a very helpful host and answered all our questions. Alfred was a fantastic guide and we were so glad to get to tour the ocean with such a kind and knowledgeable man! We will be back!
