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!
