Gorgeous Brand New Townhouse Overlooking The Caribbean

Located in: Placencia
Welcome to paradise!!

Begin your journey there by pontoon boat, across a lagoon (only 80 ft...) to our three-story Belize town home . You are surrounded by water on all sides where the Caribbean Sea meets a blue-green lagoon, where dolphins and manatees make frequent appearances, just for our viewing pleasure I'm sure!!

Ready for adventure? Well Placencia Village is only a pontoon boat ride away,short 3 minute ride that is. You’re just a 5-minute walk from some mouthwatering seafood restaurants offering local fresh fish, local live music and exceptional deep sea fishing, my husband can attest to that first hand.

A BIT ABOUT OUR PLACENCIA TOWNHOME WHICH WE CALL OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Our town home complex is very safe, and when I say complex there are only four units. This means our gorgeous, private swimming pool is never ever crowded. It's always kept at 72 degrees so it's always inviting after a long day of sightseeing.

Need more relaxation, venture up to the top of our three-story townhouse and chill out under the cover of an authentic thatched hut, a palapa, from there you can watch the sun rise and set over the water, simply paradise.

We also have outdoor pool showers for rinsing off before you head over to the grilling hut to grill your big catch. What a great way to spend an evening in the sea air and watch the sunset.Temperatures usually hover around 75-80 degrees year-round which makes everyone very happy!

An added bonus is our very own most knowledgeable caretaker Edwin who lives onsite.
His caretaker’s cottage is adjacent to the townhome complex and he is always available in case of emergencies or simply need advice on places to eat or any possible excursions. He speaks perfect English and is happy to help.

COME ON IN

Once you step in the town home, you will see a new, modern, clean well appointed home away from home. The rooms are large with many windows that fill the place with natural light.

In the kitchen you will find all the necessary cooking utensils and stainless steel appliances that are there just in case your inner chef comes out. We have also a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. You know what that means, you can pack light and throw a load of laundry in if needed. Our modern bathrooms all have beautifully unique vesseled sinks and huge walk-in showers. Let's not forget the rooftop palapa, and the two separate verandas that are all yours, one accessed through the living room, and the other through one of the bedrooms.

WHAT IS THERE TO DO IN PLACENCIA

Where do I start as the options are endless.

World-class sport fishing, scuba diving and perhaps snorkeling along the second largest barrier reef, only second to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. You can do a boat excursion on the Monkey River, where howler monkeys play and crocodiles slink around and sun themselves on rock.

For the history buff or pretty much anyone wanting to be amazed, about an hour past the Monkey excursion you will find the breathtaking Mayan ruins. Not too far from the ruin you can go zip lining, soaring above the forest floor and cascading waterfalls of Belize just breath taking.

If you are like me there are some days I just want to lounge around and soak up the sun at our pool or take a quick stroll to the beach and put my feet in the warm sand.

LET'S TALK FOOD
Check out some of the top ten things you might want to taste in Belize

The National Dish: Rice and beans cooked in coconut milk with a choice of beef, chicken, pork, lobster, shrimp or game meat is one of the most important items on the local diet, approaching something like. The dish is served with potato salad and ripe fried or baked plantain when in season and fresh Habanero, onion and lime juice sauce.

Specialty meats/seafood: Gibnut (aka The Royal Rat), spiny lobster, iguana (aka Bamboo Chicken), conch.  Deep-fried conch fritters are a popular appetizer around the country.

Belize Fruit Cake. This Fruit Cake, is a traditional Belizean rum cake. Popular around holidays, it is a cake with preserved fruits baked in and then stored for a couple of days after being generously doused with dark local or Caribbean rum.

Fruit wines.  Belizeans make wines from all kinds of local fruit including cashew, craboo, blackberry (not the berries of the north), star fruit, sorrel (a hibiscus), and soursop.  Many of these are home-made, overly sweet, and the alcohol content is uncertain.

Johnny Cakes, sometimes referred to as journey cakes, are small baked bread cakes, made with flour and coconut milk. They are best when cooked in the traditional fire hearth. The Johnny Cake is often cut in half and slathered with butter, re-fried beans and cheese and sold as a Belize fast food for breakfast.

Fry Jack is made of flour, baking soda, shortening and deep fried. The Johnny cake is dry and can last for several days and was used in the days before refrigeration when mahogany workers had to go on long trips, hence the name “journey cakes”. Fry Jacks are best eaten hot right after preparation.

Cassava bread or cassava fries are Garifuna specialties. 

Ceviche is made from conch or shrimp or combined in a mixed dish. The seafood is diced and steeped in lime juice for a few hours under refrigeration and tossed with sliced cucumber, tomatoes, onions and chopped cilantro, black pepper and Habanero pepper.  Best served chilled.

Cochinita Pibil is a traditional Yucatec-Maya slow roasted pork dish. Belizeans who do not speak Spanish call this dish Pibil Pork. Preparation consists of marinating the meat in an acidic sour orange juice flavored with annato seed paste (a local spice known as recado), garlic, allspice and onion. The meat is then wrapped in plantain leaf, placed inside a large roasting pan that then goes underground or inside a clay oven with firewood and slow cooked and smoked for hours until the meat is succulent and tender.

Tamales are squares of cornmeal stuffed with chicken, pork or beans, along with green peas, onion and chunks of tomato, wrapped in smoked plantain leaves, and held together with the string stripped off plantain leave.

Dukunu. Essentially a vegetarian tamale, a dukunu is a snack that you can find in a variety of establishments around Belize. The filling is ground corn, butter and coconut milk.

Chaya Tamales. Made with Cnidoscolus aconitifolius or tree spinach, chaya tamales are a funky twist on an old staple. They’re a specialty at Ms. Martha’s in San Ignacio.

Marie Sharp’s or Hot Mama’s hot sauce. 
Hudut. Another Garifuna favorite, hudut is a fish stew that’s accented with mashed plantains and a little coconut. Typically made with red snapper, it’s a cheap yet delicious entree.

Escabeche is an exotic chicken soup with its roots in Yucatec Maya and Spanish cuisine. The chicken is seasoned with oregano and thyme, lightly broiled, then roasted and served in a light and clear chicken soup seasoned with onions, black pepper, allspice, and Jalapeno pepper. The Jalapeno pepper is not as fiery as the Habanero and most people can easily handle this pepper. The base of the soup is white sugar cane vinegar and chicken stock.

Desserts or sweets anyone?

Soursop or craboo (aka nance) ice cream. The Soursop fruit (Annona muricata) is at once sweet and tart, very healthy and a leading anti-oxidant and widely available in Belize. The Mennonites produce most of the milk in Belize and make several varieties of ice cream with local fruit.
Cassava (Manihot esculenta) pudding is another favorite dessert – and sweet and very nutritious.
Mayan Chocolate! Mayan kings once traded cacao seeds as currency and drank them in a spicy, sacred beverage. Now, Mayan farmers are cashing in, thanks to the world's growing appetite for specialty chocolate.
Tropical jams and jellies.
Seaweed Shakes, like a typical milkshake or smoothie, are frothy, cold and tasty.  Seaweed, a vitamin-rich superfood, is thought to be a cure for fatigue, a longevity-booster, and an aphrodisiac. Often, rum or brandy is added to supply the seaweed shake with a little extra kick. 
There are also no shortage of great restaurants, I have a binder in the home listing those we recommend.
