About Boris Mannsfeld
My family loves Belize. Each time we are here its another fun-filled adventure. I am the developer of this project and have been visiting Belize since 1992. My family maintains a residence here at this condo and in Denver, Colorado. I develop property on the Placencia Peninsula, invest in the local real estate and tourism markets and operate the premier real estate firm on the peninsula - Boris Mannsfeld & Associates. I love Placencia! Very lucky to have found this spot.
Boris Mannsfeld purchased this Condo in 2014

FABULOUS FAMILY VACATION
This luxurious, four bedroom, air-conditioned, spacious penthouse condo is amazing, and we had a most memorable vacation at Cocoplum. The views from each room are spectacular. We were a family of 6 adults and two children (ages 3 and 5). The condo is modern and very clean, and is fully equipped with top-of- the-line kitchen equipment. Large utility room with washing machine and dryer. Good stock of towels, linens, and beach towels. Children’s toys for guests to use. Beautiful and safe veranda overlooking the swimming pool, tropical gardens, beach, ocean and pier, with thatched roofing over the bar at the end of the pier. There are also loungers at the end of the pier to enjoy the tranquil and beautiful setting. The manager, Herbert, was outstanding and very responsive when we had questions. Nothing was too much trouble. Joe, who dealt with maintenance, was also terrific, and very attentive. (When we told him we would be using the bbq in the gardens, Joe immediately made sure it was spotlessly clean.). The modern, small, tranquil Naia Resort is a five minute walk along the sandy beach, and has a restaurant, bar, and gym and massage facilities. The little village of Placencia is a short drive with fascinating little restaurants and local shops. Daily caught fish can be purchased at the dock. On our first day we were able to get lobster tails - absolutely delicious. Local supermarkets and pharmacies are very well stocked, and reasonably priced. And road-side stands sell locally produced vegetables and fruit. We made several excursions through the local rainforests; and had a spectacular snorkeling trip where we had lunch on a desert island and swam with turtles, nurse sharks and manta-rays. This was our first trip to Belize, and the country is beautiful and the people are very friendly and speak English. On our arrival, we had a car transfer from Belize Airport to Cocoplum, which was very efficient. It is about a three hour drive on well made roads. Make sure you stop at the Country Barn en route to taste their delicious and unique home-made ice cream. We travel extensively around the world, and this family vacation was certainly one of the best. A most magnificent and memorable vacation with our adult children and our two grandchildren. We will return!!
This Cocoplum penthouse was simply amazing! The home is absolutely beautiful, plenty of space for the 8 of us with really nice showers. The space felt very private and the access to the pool and private pier was great. We definitely turned the pier into our hangout spot and loved being able to use the kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.
Herbert was very responsive throughout the entire booking process and extremely helpful. From greeting us upon arrival, talking us through everything in the house and on the property, and setting up a chef for us for two evenings - he helped make our trip so enjoyable and easy! Having Omar as a private chef for the two evenings was so fun and very delicious! We had tons of leftovers each night which was perfect.
The drive into Placencia proper was a true 15 - 20 minute ride, depending on where exactly you were going. The speedbumps throughout make it pretty impossible to speed. I would definitely recommend having your own car.
Thanks for a great stay!
My family of 8 had a wonderful time staying in the Cocoplum villa. We ranged from ages 2 to 73, and everyone had a great time. The villa is large and very comfortable with enough space for everyone to have a nice place to sleep, but also plenty of room in the common area for us to eat meals and spend time together. We enjoyed the view from the balcony and enjoyed swimming in the warm pool, and kayaking in the calm ocean right off the property. The little dock is so picturesque. Everyone who works there is very nice, and Herbert was great at orienting us and seeing us off. Boris was so kind as to give us a list of tips of fun things to do in the area. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we enjoyed every minute and would highly recommend it! We hope to return someday!
Beautiful penthouse suites for family
We had a fabulous time staying here. The caretakers and property managers were all very helpful and extremely attentive.
Thanks so much for visiting the Villas at Cocoplum. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Congrats to the team here for another happy client.
Our home is your home.

Location and size of penthouse makes it a winner.
The penthouse is fabulous! We were two couples and two singles so the sleeping arrangements were perfect. The location is really the best. The golf cart ride to the village is fun. You get to see how the locals really live. The people are so friendly. There are many places to eat if you don’t feel like cooking. Besides the location, Herbert is the biggest asset. He set up golf carts, fishing and even a local chef to cook our catch two different ways. They even cleaned up after themselves as we drank wine and enjoyed the evening. It was really fun. The only glitch we hit unfortunately was upon arrival so beware, leave yourself plenty of daylight hours if you are taking a puddle jumper. They leave promptly because the airport in Placencia doesn’t have runway lights. We had to take a 3 hr shuttle when the last plane left us as we struggled to get out of very slow customs . The shuttle wasn’t all that bad. $50/head for 6. The driver stopped at the liquor store first so that helped. And additionally, Herbert had the Naia restaurant stay open for us because there would have been nothing open when we got there. They cooked our fish twice at Naia. (We caught so much!)
Grocery stores are nearby and they also sell beer and booze. Everyone takes US dollars so don’t bother with Belize dollars.
Cocoplum also has kayaks and paddle boards to check out. Our sons, 21&25,took them to a nearby island and they loved that. It took a while to get there but the manatee and the starfish were totally worth it. I heard they have bikes too but I ran out of time for that. There are a lot of no seeums (invisible mosquitoes) all over so use bug spray. The house was well equipped, lots of towels for bath and beach plus a large washer and dryer. They had a new bag of coffee beans and did supply soap, shampoo and conditioner. The house is super relaxing and it’s nice to have room to spread out. The patio is very spacious with lots of room to curl up and read or watch the wildlife. There is a large dining room table in case you want to eat outside. You will enjoy this penthouse. And I forgot to mention the beautiful view but I won’t ramble. Enjoy your stay at Cocoplum!
This condo is stunning! The photos do not do it justice. It is definitely a home away from home with every feature you can think of. 4 large bedrooms, a 'to die for' kitchen, huge laundry room and plenty of room to spread out. But more importantly, the responsiveness of the landlord and support staff was above and beyond. From the initial inquiry to the personal visit on our last evening in Belize, Boris and his team couldn't have been more helpful. They answered all of questions promptly and made excellent suggestions about day trips and restaurants. We were even able to have a personal chef come in and prepare a fabulous dinner for us! The condo comes complete with a beach, volleyball court, pool, hot tub, kayaks and paddleboards, 24/7 gated security, and on site support staff. There is even a spa right next door with 3 restaurants!
If you prefer to cook in, there are several grocery stores nearby, but there are so many excellent restaurants and beach bars in the area, you will probably want to eat out for your entire stay.
If you are looking for an unforgetable family getaway, this property definitely needs to be at the top of your list. Belize is a beautiful country. The people are very friendly, English-speaking, and HAPPY!
You will LOVE this condo!!!
The Placencia Peninsula is the ultimate destination in Belize with the best beaches, hundreds of islands AND the jungle and inland adventures that make Belize so awesome.
