This gorgeous and luxurious rental in the upscale Swan Villas resort is a wonderful place to bring up to eight guests to enjoy an unforgettable vacation in coastal Belize. With a fantastic location on the lagoon, amenities including a pool and easy beach access,and beautiful views right from your porch, you will fall in love with this tropical paradise!

The Swan Villas are a brand-new construction along the lagoon side of the Placencia Peninsula. The small town of Maya Beach is a mile north and Placencia Village is about seven miles south, though you only have to walk the 75 short yards to the beach to truly relax here!

In the resort you will immediately notice the unique appearance of the homes, which were designed inside and out by a famous architect. The concept behind this is the idea of organic architecture, which creates a harmonious atmosphere that combines the human world with the beauty of nature. When you stay here you may feel a little more relaxed and at peace with nature simply through the thoughtful design of these lovely villas.

This particular listing includes three separate units that make up one large villa. Please note that there are three distinct units in this home: one downstairs two-bedroom home, and two upstairs studio-style units. Each unit has its own separate entrance and living spaces, so this is an ideal configuration for a group of couples or a family with older children. The entire building is U-shaped and features views of the sparkling lagoon and the resort's swimming pool and courtyard area. Just imagine the gorgeous sunsets you can watch from these west-facing windows!

The ground floor of this building contains the first unit, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom Lion Fish Retreat, which is the largest of the three rentals. In the middle portion of the unit, you will have a comfortable living area that is perfect for socializing with a group. Here you will also find a full kitchen, complete with a modern style and gleaming stainless-steel appliances. A dining room table is the perfect place to sit everyone down together to enjoy a homecooked breakfast before heading out for a day of walking on the beach and exploring the beautiful country.

You will even find a laundry room tucked away in a corner, so you won't have to worry too much about whether you packed enough clean shirts for your stay. There is also a TV in the living room, though you may be too busy enjoying the sunshine and fresh air to watch much television! A shaded patio area is a perfect place to sit with a cold beverage and relax while gazing at the scenery.

On either end of the building, the Lagoon Retreat had a private bedroom. These both have their own lovely round-shaped king bed, private bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a separate jetted bathtub which features aromatherapy and color therapy options for maximum relaxation. There are two king-size beds to keep everyone nice and comfy.

The upper floor of this building features two separate studio-style units that are nearly identical in layout: the Shark Studio Retreat and the Turtle Studio Retreat. These rentals each contain a kitchenette, a TV, a wonderful round king-size bed, and a private bathroom. Those bathrooms also offer both a walk-in shower and a jetted tub with aromatherapy and chromotherapy. The studio units each have their own private balcony where guests can sit, breathe in the fresh air, and relax.

During your stay you will also enjoy air conditioning, plus WiFi access so you can easily post your vacation pictures online and stay in touch with your family and friends. Two guests can comfortably sleep in each of these studios, so altogether the three separate units can accommodate a total of eight vacationers! This is a fantastic opportunity for an extended family to travel together or for a memorable trip with a group of friends or a few couples. Whoever you decide to bring with you, everyone will live like royalty here at the Swan Villas.

Within the resort, you will also have access to a variety of amenities to make your stay even more special. Make sure to bring your swimsuit, because you will want to take a dip in the gorgeous infinity-edge pool. You could also take a short walk down to the private beach, where you can stroll along the perfectly soft sand, splash around the shallow water, and sunbathe from the shore. Or borrow kayaks and bicycles to explore the nearby sea and land.

Although there is plenty to keep you busy around the resort, you may want to explore more of the beautiful Placencia Peninsula. If you go just a mile north you will find yourself in the very small community of Maya Beach, where you can stock up on groceries at the market or get a bite to eat at one of the restaurants. For even more options, take a 15-minute drive or taxi ride south into Placencia Village, a laid-back and friendly town. There you can peruse the souvenir shops, get a lovely meal at one of the many restaurants, and take a walk along the beach.

Anyone who loves to snorkel or scuba dive will be right at home here; this area is well known for its underwater sights. You could check out the colorful sea life, dive to see the second largest barrier reef in the world, or take a group outing to view the friendly manatees that live in the lagoon. Of course, you could also try oceanfishing, sailing, or boating out to a nearby island. Even more options await if you decide to visit the interior of diverse Belize. Go ahead and book a guided excursion to hike through the jungle, visit some Mayan ruins, check out a wildlife preserve, go cave tubing, or even try a fast-paced zipline ride over the treetops.

Whether you spend your visit relaxing by the pool or adventuring around the country, you will have a spectacular stay at this luxurious, gorgeous, and amenity-filled Belize vacation rental!

This house is lovely and updated. Management is on top of all our needs and very helpful in making decisions on trips from the house. The pool was super especially with small children along and the beach is conveniently close. We rented the entire house and all the air conditioners worked perfectly. Modern laundry equipment. Beautiful views from all the rooms. Well worth the money to rent this house.

The architecture of the Villas is so unique and beautiful. The view from the house ( especially from the upstairs balconies) is breathtaking.
We were surprised by the quality of the food in the restaurants we tried. All the activities we chose were very well organized and enjoyable.

We had a wonderful stay, really enjoyed experiencing this fabulous and unique home. I love the shower and the we all enjoyed the pool. The beds were a little hard but that is a minor problem.

This is probably the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. The house is so beautiful and has such unique architecture and furnishing. The pool is amazing and overlooks a beautiful lagoon. The beach is a short walk across the street. We had a large group so we rented the entire villa but it should be noted that if you only rent 1 room you will have a shared kitchen with other guests. The aerial layout makes it look like there are other villas on the property but at this time this is the only completed one so we had the entire property and pool to ourselves. There are open air areas in the house so there is the potential for rain/bugs getting in some places, not an issue for us but may be for others. The owner was very helpful and made lots of good suggestions of things to do in the area. Overall, would highly recommend this property and would stay again.
Manager response:
We are very happy to hear that this guests enjoyed their stay at the property. The home does have its own independent kitchen, which is shown within the virtual tour on our website. Concerning the bugs and rain, they can be minimized by enclosing the home. Since Belize is a tropical location, the central A/C provides extreme comfort. Thank you.

We had a wonderful family vacation Rudy and montse are wonderful hosts they recommend that we rent a car we thought we could take the bus everywhere. We did end up renting a car it was necessary if you want to explore

Just returned from two weeks in Ocean Villa (Jan. 2016). The two reviews I read were spot on! Beautiful, unique home. We rented the whole house for our family, 8 adults and a 4 month old. Each couple had their own huge bedroom and that gave us all some privacy when we wanted. Our host, Rudy, was the best, giving us great advice on where to shop, eat and things to do. If there were any questions, or we ran out of something, all I had to do was sent him an email and he responded very quickly. Before we went I had a few questions so I emailed Rudy and he replied within the hour. We did have some problems with sandflies but there is this amazing "Jungle Salve" you can get at the Placencia Pharmacy and it works wonders at taking the itching away. Eventually we got smart and put the chairs in the pool. There were sandflies in other places so just remember the bug spray. We really had a fantastic time and would highly recommend Swan Villa's. Rudy and Montse are the best!

We recently traveled to Placencia with a group of seven and couldn't have found a better place to stay for our visit. Swan Villas was the perfect folllow-up to our preceding days in the jungle. Rudy and Montse, the villa owners, were absolutely wonderful hosts offering assistance as needed but leaving us in private at the villa, as if it were our own home.

On day one, Rudy led us on a bike tour to Placencia and offered great insight in to the surrounding area. He even arranged for additional bikes for our group. He rightfully takes great pride in the property itself and his attention to detail makes for a very comfortable stay. Throughout our visit he was always available to help with tour arrangements or recommendations on what to do in town.

The contemporary architecture is complete with all the amenities of home in a very unique setting + an amazing pool looking out over the lagoon. The rooms are comfortable and clean including the common area kitchen which we made use of for breakfasts and lunches.

Swan Villas is a great place for small groups looking to travel together or for families needing individual rooms for everyone. We will all be looking forward to seeing the development continue to grow and will forever remember our stay there. Hoping to return again someday soon! Thank you Rudy!

If it wasn't for Vacasa rentals I would've never found this place. Vacasa provided me with all the information I needed from rental directions to nearby places to visit. The Swan Villas was beyond our expectations. We were blown away by the architecture and breathtaking view of the water. I rented the entire place for 3 nights and brought a group of 10 people. Rudy the owner, was very accommodating and helpful with everything we needed. He also provided us with blow up beds for our extra guest. I am already considering renting this place again next year. My guest were all comfortable and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there.
