The property is North of Placencia Village, about a 20 minute walk on the beach to access the Placencia Village sidewalk that runs through the center of the village, 10 minute bike ride, or 2 minutes by Taxi. Easy to walk to the airstrip from the house (5 minutes max) and call or catch a Taxi from Maya Island terminal...(which also has air conditioning for your wait if necessary). Taxis can deliver you to the doorstep on return. The location allows quick access to the village, but your own yard and property for seclusion and quiet when you desire, without the noise of the village area.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week at the Pearl Beach House, my boyfriend and I are already talking about going back! The owner, Betsy, was very helpful and gave many recommendations prior to our arrival. Upon arrival, Stefano greeted us and got us set up at the house. He gave recommendations on where to eat and places to visit. Anna had the place spotless! She and Pablo were so helpful and welcoming, it was nice to have them right next door.

The house itself was probably the most unique place we have ever stayed. The round structure made it welcoming and open. It was spacious, the water was hot, and the porch was a tranquil place to lay in a hammock. Additionally, it was so nice to have our own kitchen to cook breakfast instead of worrying about finding a restaurant. The grocery stores weren't far away, so we were able to get everything we needed.

The highlight of this house for us was the property! It was gorgeous and very well maintained! It seriously could be on a postcard! We were happy to spend our mornings sipping coffee on the quiet beach and the sunrises were beautiful! We spent 3 days fly fishing with a local guide who even picked us up right off of the dock. The location really can't be beat. It is far enough away from the village to allow us to escape into our own little world, but close enough to visit whenever we wished. When leaving, we even cut across the beach and walked to the airstrip. That was the first time we had done that!

We absolutely loved this place and hope to visit again soon!

Unforgettable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have an amazing one week stay here, after spending the previous week in the jungle of Belize (Cayo). First and foremost, and the best part about our stay here - were our neighbors, Pablo and Anna. What amazing people! People like that you don't come across often, and when you do - you remember them forever. From the first day Pablo was out teaching my husband how to use the machete so we could cut down our own coconuts (which we enjoyed every day - I've never tasted coconut SO SWEET! All the fruits we ate in Belize were so FLAVORFUL and sweet). The property is right on the beach, we had our own private dock and plenty of hammocks just to relax and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing in. The property is the perfect distance away from Placencia village to enjoy perfect quiet and privacy (laying out on the dock on a clear night enjoying the stars in complete blackness was one of my favorite memories of this trip) - but it's also the perfect distance to bike into town every day. What an incredible visit. The house itself is so unique and cozy, and all the extra fans inside and the extensive library were so appreciated! This place is really special.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in Belize with friends and ended our trip with a 3 day stay here. Awesome!!! #1 Stefano the property manager was great. ..he met us and gave us all the information needed for the area and was very accommodating. #2 Pablo and Anna, the caretakers for the property. Very kind, very hospitable, beautiful children who showed us the ropes regarding everything to be found in the water.

The home is very unique, like the Flintstones! We loved it. The property was gorgeous, coconut trees everywhere. We ate so much coconut and drank so much coconut water!! The beach is truly private, and peaceful. The surrounding area has some great local food, Gelato that is the best I've had. The locals are friendly and funny. We will definitely look up Stefano the next time we visit this area to stay at this house or one of the many other properties that he manages.

Pearl Beach Dome House

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks at this amazing house - very cool unique house, just perfect for our family reunion. We flew in from U.S., Europe and Australia and met up in Placencia. Stefano, the agent, gave us the warmest welcome at the airport and we felt like we had found a new friend. Upon arrival at the house, we were all just thrilled with our new home from home. Anna and Pablo, the caretakers, were extremely kind during our stay. Although we didn't meet the owner, she was amazingly attentive to our needs - and she obviously picked the right people to represent her on the spot. Gorgeous tropical flowers were placed around the house. Plenty of brightly colored towels in the bathroom, a great shower, plenty of kitchenware so we could cook and eat our meals in when we wanted. We got fresh fish down by the port as the fishermen came in. We loved the wrap-around veranda and the pretty outdoor lighting. The garden and the beach are just paradise - very well tended and nice safe swimming. We were sad to leave, and we'll treasure the memories. I have to say that Pearl Beach Dome House, garden and beach, will now be our benchmark for future reunions. It was just perfect! You'd better Belize it!

Beautiful beachfront lot

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The house is fun and funky with an awesome porch for rainy weather. We felt like rock stars with the huge beautiful beachfront lot and caretakers on the property. Pablo and Anna brought us fresh coconuts and kept the property immaculate. There's only one neighbor who was having a party while we were there and was super nice. It's not the best swimming beach but you can walk a short distance to another beach or go into town and enjoy the pristine beach there. The town is also fun with inexpensive food and very friendly people. Can't recommend this place highly enough for a different type of beach vacation!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you found the property as fun as we do. We enjoy sharing this area w/ our guests. The beaches change with the currents and prevailing winds. Sometimes Rum Point is best, sometimes further into the main village...its all good! The best part is the relaxation..... we hope to see you again in Placencia.

Family fun Trip

  • 5 of 5

Had a really good time at the Pearl Beach Dome House. It was an Awesome place. You had a nice private beach to hang out in the hammocks and eat fresh Mangos crack coconuts open and eat other fruits, about 300 feet of beach all to yourself. There was a little dock on the property that was nice for kids to fish off, or snorkel around. The house in general was nice and roomy. It was like an Igloo, great fun for the kids. Reminded me of the Flintstone House, from Bedrock. Had a full kitchen where you could cook your own food that you bought or caught. The staff was friendly and accommodating, ready to help you out with what ever you needed. Thanks for the great experience. I would defiantly stay here again with my family.
