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 condo in 2007

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 condo 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.

Fantastic! Sunset Pointe in one of Janis' condos, Superb!

  • 5 of 5

I would first like to thank Janis for all the assistance leading up to our week long stay at Sunset Pointe. Our vacation was an anniversary surprise for my wife and Janis answered any questions and sent us all the information immediately. She also offered to help with any special anniversary things we may want to do. Since we were driving down from Belize City, she also provided directions and places to stop and eat on the way. All this made our trip to Sunset Pointe great!

Once we arrived, Francisco and his family (caretaker) showed us our condo and offered their help to make our stay wonderful. All I can say about the condo is that it is fantastic and well designed to make use of the indoors and outdoors! The pool was very refresing and great place to relax and meet other visitors. The grounds around the condos were also immaculate. As Janis told us, the village is within a short walk from the condo. We found that the people were very friendly and every meal we had was some of the best food we've ever had anywhere! As I understand it, Janis designed the condo area, great job! Oh, by the way, my wife could not have been any more surprised, nor any happier then our stay at Sunset Pointe!! When we return to Belize, we will be staying at Sunset Pointe!

Than you, Dennis and Kay

Owner's Response: I am always happy to help our guests with a surprise, I love to do it and even more happy when it turns out so well! I love to give tips to guests who are celebrating special occasions .Rosa our caretakers wife is an expert at creating beautiful flower arrangements or flower peddles on the bed and of course all the fantastic flowers are from Sunset Pointe property.. We designed the condos for open indoor/outdoor living by having covered private porches off of each room. Of course there is a/c if you wish also. Enjoy the tropics with all the comforts of home!

Beautiful, very clean condo in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the condo, cooked breakfast and some dinners and did lots of activities in the area. The condo was perfect for everything. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked and everything was extremely clean. The condo is very nicely decorated. We took several day tours (reef, spice and chocolate farm and Monkey River) with Alfred Williams who is a great guide with lots of local knowledge and gives a very personalized tour. The Bunches of Fun banana farm tour is also exceptional. The condo is well located for easy access to Placencia, only about a 10-15 minute easy walk to town center (don't miss Tutti Fruiti gelato shop, among others). Alfred picked us up for trips in his boat right at the condo and the taxi to the banana farm also was right from the condo. We enjoyed the porch as a great place to eat meals and watch the water and sunset. The washer and dryer came in very handy especially to dry beach towels (don't dry well otherwise in the humidity). Everything was great. Janis was excellent at quickly responding to our questions before our arrival and provided lots of good information.

Third awesome stay at Sunset Pointe

Another excellent fishing trip with Alfred and playing with Star and Tiger helped give us our puppy and kitty fix. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

Outstanding Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Sunset Pointe is the best location in Placencia! The unit was perfectly decorated, comfortable and the amenities were great! We used the pool, hot tub, kayaks, piers and bicycles during our stay. We loved how quiet Sunset Pointe is and how easily we could ride our bikes to nearby bars, restaurants and shopping in the village. Janis told us we would like it and it definitely exceeded our expectations! We will be back soon!

Great place to stay, wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I picked this place from the property description, everything was exactly as described. We couldn't have picked a more relaxing location just a bit out of town. It was nice to be able to walk or ride a bike into town, no car was necessary; we got plenty of exercise. The condo was clean and stocked with all the essentials. TV reception was great along with excellent internet connection which we used to communicate with the USA. The caretakers, Francisco, Rosa and their children were wonderful people. My wife became very fond of the daughter, she was such a sweetheart and visited us every day. We stayed in unit #2 for 28 days and loved every day. Half way through our month the owners Janis and Eric arrived. They were wonderful hosts, they went out of their way to show us a great time.

During our stay we Kayaked several days during the week, the kayaks were included with the condo which was a great asset. We did a day sailing trip on a catamaran captain Jeff which took us to some great snorkeling places. We did some excellent fishing with the most wonderful guide Alfred. Alfred knows his fishing and is a wonderful person to get to know. He gave us a great rundown on how he grew up in the area, it was a real learning experience for my wife and I. Alfred also took us a wonderful tour of the Monkey river where we viewed the wildlife and hiked through the jungle where we saw the Howler monkeys.

We ate very well from the great restaurants and our well stocked freezer full of fresh fish which we caught fishing with Alfred. One of my favorite morning places was the above grounds coffee house, it was a great place to mingle with the locals and enjoy the great coffee they served. It was wonderful meeting Janis, Eric, Francisco, Rosa and the kids, they made our stay memorable. My wife is already talking about when we go back to Placencia at Sunset Point. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a very relaxing vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind and informative review about our unit #2. We look forward to welcoming you back any time. Even though you stayed 28 days there is so much more to see and do each time you return.. For instance there is a brand new zip line and river tubing very close to Placencia that goes trough the pristine Mayan Mountains. It has been built to not impact the beauty of the area!

Greats place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great choice to stay, very nice place and just far enough away from the village to not be to loud. Very short walk to town (not that I am saying it is out of town) about a10 min walk to be in the center of all the action. The location couldn't be better. I will go back again if staying in the the village.
