Luxury 1 or 2 BR, 2 BA, Walk to Village
Caribbean Sea, Lagoon, and Mountain views
Located at the tip of the 23 mile long Placencia Peninsula where the Caribbean Sea and Placencia Lagoon meet.
Sunset Pointe is in the village yet totally private.
This condo can be rented as a 1 bedroom 2 bath unit or a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit.
It is open concept design with each room opening onto a private porch through hand made mahogany French Doors, cool tile floors, air conditioning and seven ceiling fans. The kitchen is well equipped with stainless steel appliances and full size washer and dryer. Decorated in handcrafted Belize bamboo and hardwood furniture plus local art work.
We are a convenient 5 minute walk into the village for great restaurants, beach bars, and shopping. We also provide complimentary bikes and kayaks for our guests to use so no car is needed.
For your enjoyment we provide cable TV, internet, and DVD. Guides will pick our guests up onsite for offshore fishing, diving, or island hoping or for inland adventures to Mayan Ruins, caves, waterfalls, zip lining, hiking the worlds largest Jaguar Preserve, or horse back riding.
There is a third floor Widows Walk were you can enjoy sunrises over the Caribbean Sea, sunsets over Placencia Lagoon and the Mayan Mountains. You can also have a relaxing private massage up there.
The beautifully landscaped grounds were given an award by the World Wildlife Organization for incorporating the tropical mangroves into the lush landscaping.
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 fishing is some of the best in the world and the wildlife viewing is spectacular. It is an adventure lovers paradise.
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.
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.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset Pointe. First of all, the condo in person lived up to the impressive photos and description listed online. We found it to be very clean (especially the spotless polished floors), very well stocked with all the essentials plus extras needed to make our stay very comfortable, and beautifully decorated with artwork and artifacts that added a nice finishing touch to a cozy Caribbean getaway. Also the owner was very receptive from the start of the process, promptly responding to all of our many questions, providing us with information about excursions, restaurants, and other helpful travel tips. It is also clear that the owners take a lot of pride in their investment as the overall Sunset Pointe complex is very well maintained. Also, the location was perfect for us-- close enough to enjoy the local activity of Placencia yet tucked away to enjoy peace and quiet when we wanted to chill. We used the bikes that come with the condo everyday for short rides to the beach, restaurants, shopping and just to explore around town. We always felt safe even when biking back after dark. We also went on some excursions with Alfred, who is amazing. I definitely recommend connecting with him as he is extremely knowledgeable about a lot of things and will make your excursions a memorable experience. Also, Francisco, the property manager, was fabulous. He was always available to answer questions for us, offer assistance when needed and even took us on an excursion. In closing, Sunset Pointe is an excellent choice and I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone traveling to Placencia.
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed this vacation and stay at Sunset Point. The owners were helpful setting up the reservation and then corresponding via email as we planned our vacation. The condo was clean and comfortable, just right for a family of four. The kitchen was perfect for saving money and eating in. The washer and dryer was appreciated, so we could pack lightly. The pool was refreshing when we woke up each morning and in the evening after returning from the days events. The short walk or ride into town was done many times to frequent the outstanding restaurants and daily Tutti Frutti gelato stops. We took advantage of booking a few water trips with Alfred, our guide. He was very knowledgable and went out of his way to make the trips a true adventure our family will always remember. Some highlights included catching lobster, eating mangos and coconuts fresh off the tree, swimming with sharks and sea turtles, snorkeling, visiting Monkey River with the Howler Monkeys, fishing, and simply watching sunsets.
Excellent location and property. Kitchen well stocked, air conditioning and fans worked great, and we needed it at the beginning of the rainy season. The lightning and rainstorms were awesome and short lived. We drove the short road to town to avoid the heat. The restaurant choices, adventure choices, and local vibe are all amazing. Great value, great location! The wifi is spotty and slow, but we expect that outside the U.S. Try Mojos and Rumfish for dinner, and don't miss the renowned Tutti Frutti gelato!
We stayed at Sunset Pointe Unit#2 from March 4th through the 13th. It was a great location for our Honeymoon. It was the perfect mix of adventure and relaxing by the beach or pool. The condo was great and has everything you could possibly need. We did a number of day trips with both Alfred and Francisco. They were both fantastic guides, knowledgeable and made our stay even more memorable! Janis and Eric were great as well! Thank you for all of your flexibility and recommendations. There is so much to see and do in Placencia and the surrounding areas that we hope to go back soon! I would recommend getting a golf cart for at least a day or 2 so you can venture out a little further. Otherwise grocery stores, beaches and restaurants are within walking distance.
I also have to mention how wonderful all the people we met were. Whether vacationing or locals everyone was kind and helpful if you had a question.
We stayed in unit two of Sunset Point from 10/27-11/10/2015. Most places you stay there is some place you see that you say "wish we had stayed there". Not in this case. The unit was well furnished, very well decorated in local furniture and fixtures. Kitchen area was well done and easy to cook and serve meals. The views from the front porch were perfect to watch the boat traffic up and down the canal. The East pier on gulf side was perfect for afternoon reading and watching the boats come and go including a monster banana boat that loaded up on a regular basis off shore. Couple of must does. Go on a fishing/snorkeling trip with Alfred and visit Monkey River (be sure and bring some light colored long sleeve shirt and pants for the MR adventure). With Alfred we caught enough fish for three meals including company one night. Also, Alfred caught enough lobster for supper while snorkeling. We then went to Hatchett Caye for a fantastic lunch. We found the restaurants would run out of the daily specials unless you arrived early both lunch and dinner. Especially liked Rum Fish and De Thatch on the beach. Reasonable prices and take credit cards. No trip to town was complete without a stop at the Tuti Frutti Ice Cream Parlor. Don't miss it. The vegetable stand across the street from Rum Fish was excellent for pine apples and veggies. Grocery stores are pretty basic but found everything we needed. Watch prices on liquor. Wife ended up buying a $50 bottle of gin w/o realizing it until we got back to condo. Everywhere we went people were friendly and accommodating. Eric and Janis, thank you for all your helpful hints on what to bring and where to eat. Only downer was caught no fish off the piers and no one else did while we were there. October 21- November 10, 2015
