Fun And Unique Lodging Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! It is close enough to all shops and restaurants in Placencia but still peaceful and quiet. Steps from the beach. Stefano, the property manager was very helpful with many great suggestions and a pleasure to deal with.

Owner's Response: We were happy to have you Oleg! Stefano is a great Property Manager, we are lucky to have him with us; and We feel the same at Pearl Beach! Just the right spot in relation to the village and the beach, as well as convenient to get to the airstrip. We are always there when you want to vacation in Placencia.

House was unusual which we appreciated! It had everything we needed for our stay. Loved the porch with thatched roof!! Short distance from some very good resort restaurants. Very relaxing spot. Everyone we met were very helpful and welcoming!!

Our family had a great stay. There were six of us and there was plenty of room for everyone.

Beautiful property and just steps to the beach. Nice and secluded. Near the airstrip. An easy walk into town via the road or the beach.

Betsy the owner was very helpful and accommodating and promptly returned my emails. It was our first visit to Belize and I had a lot of questions. Thanks Betsy.

Owner's Response: Thanks Dave, so good to hear the family had a great vacation. Yes, it is nice a bit out of the village for the seclusion but not too far away! Hope to see your family again, safe travels... Betsy

Too Far from Village

  • 3 of 5

If you want seclusion on a nice beach this is it. I found it too far away from the village. It is also pricy for the conditions of the accommodation. Poor mattresses for the price.

Owner's Response: There are many taxis to take you the 3 minute trip to 'the village'. This is the place if you want seclusion! We bill the property as away from the noise of the village. Apparently this guest missed that mention. The house and Guest House have all new mattresses. The couches also have new cushions and covers as of August 2017. We do our best to keep the house, clean, comfortable and fun... again, this is not a resort or spa type atmosphere.

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.
