Maya Beach, Placencia, (16.600556, -88.356667) Shark & Turtle Retreats- Swan Villas, Placencia, Belize

Two private waterfront retreats w/ pool access, close to gorgeous beach

Featuring a magnificent location just 75 yards from the lagoon, access to resort amenities such as a pool and activities, and a stunning design, this rental in the upscale Swan Villas is a fantastic place to plan your relaxing Belize getaway. When you stay in this brand-new construction you will be surrounded by luxurious touches and the unparalleled beauty of this tropical region.

This particular listing includes two identical units, which can both also be rented separately (please see the listings for the Shark Studio Retreat and the Turtle Studio Retreat if you would like to rent them individually). You can also rent the bottom floor of this unit, the Lion Fish Retreat, or the entire two-floor Ocean Villa all together.

These two studio-style apartments take up the second level of one gorgeous villa in the resort community. They each have their own private entrance and living spaces. This is a fantastic way for two couples or a few friends to travel together while still enjoying a little extra privacy.

Each of these studio units is a self-contained apartment, including a kitchenette, private bathroom, and sleeping area. Both units have air conditioning, WiFi access, and a TV to keep everyone comfortable and entertained. The bathrooms have a walk-in shower, plus a separate jetted bathtub which also offers aromatherapy and color therapy settings. Each unit has a wonderful, round-shaped king bed where you will sleep soundly and rest up for another day in paradise.

At either end of this U-shaped building is a private balcony where you can sit, relax, and breathe in that fresh sea air. From the porches you can clearly see the sparkling water of the lagoon, as well as the landscaped grounds and the pool of the resort. Each of these studio rentals can accommodate two guests, so up to four visitors will be very comfortable in this combined unit.

Within the Swan Villas resort, you will have access to a variety of amenities. Take a dip in the gorgeous infinity-edge swimming pool, or borrow a kayak to paddle around the nearby lagoon. The resort offers bicycles that you can use to visit the nearby town. You could stroll down to the sandy beach on the lagoon and sunbathe or dip your feet in the gentle, warm water.

If you decide to leave the Villas, you can head north about a mile to reach the nearest town, a very small community called Maya Beach. There you will find a market and a few eateries. If you head south about 15 minutes you will find yourself at the tip of the peninsula, in the lively and peaceful Placencia Village. In that town are many souvenir shops to peruse, as well as a huge variety of restaurants that range from Belizean fare to Italian to American food, so everyone will find something to love here!

This region is famous for its scuba diving and snorkeling, and oceanfishing, sailing, and kayaking opportunities are also available, so don't be afraid to get out and explore the water or feel the sea breeze in your hair as you boat around! If you prefer land-based adventures, you can book a guided trip into the jungles of mainland Belize, where you will see diverse plant and animal life, discover hidden waterfalls, and take peeks inside mysterious caves. You could also venture to some Mayan ruins, a jaguar preserve, a chocolate factory, and much more!

Come stay at this modern, comfortable, and amenity-filled Belize vacation rental, where adventure awaits and nature's beauty is always within sight!

We just returned from Belize, and we miss it already! Our rental at Swan Villas was absolutely perfect. We spent many days sight seeing or exploring the town of Placencia, and we always looked forward to our return to Swan Villas. We rented the Shark and the Turtle, and we couldn't be happier. The design of the building and the interior was both unique and beautiful, but the best part, hands down, was the infinity pool that we couldn't wait to dip into each day and many nights. At least that is in my opinion. Others may argue, however, that the best part was kayaking on the lagoon, the view from the patio, or the beach located right across the street. Some may also argue that it was the proximity to wonderful restaurants and bars. It all depends on what you are looking for.
Rudy and his wife were a joy to meet, hands on, and so welcoming and helpful. They went above and beyond to make our trip everything it could be. We enjoyed getting to know them and tapping into their knowledge of the area and it's history.

Ideal set up for two couples as the unit is actually two complete efficiencies. Rudy and Montserrat ere extremely helpful and hospitable. The shark and turtle unit with the lionfish unit downstairs is the only one complete so the quiet and privacy made for a perfect week.

Photos don't lie. It's a beatiful property with unique architecture, all sort curves and no harsh lines.

Photos don't capture all the small touches in the selection of furnishings that show the great pride the owner has in developing this property.

Sunset paddleboarding just off the property, soaking in the soothing pool after a hot day of touring.

Owners made us feel right at home. They took us kayaking and snorkeling to a nearby caye our last day.

A wonderful, memorable experience!

Stayed there for a week. The Swan Villas is very unique and beautiful building, Recently built and everything inside and outside are round. Adjacent to the lagoon so you can take Kayak free of charge. Walk to the Maya beach every early morning and enjoyed and took picture of beautiful Sunrise. Enjoy also the sunset at the balcony. Property manager, Rudy, was extremely helpful and friendly.

Great pool with awesome views of the Lagoon and the mountains in the backdrop. Great shower and very nice place. Rudy (the owner) and his wife were nice enough to invite us for morning bike rides and kayaking. Placencia area is beautiful. Gorgeous weather and very friendly hosts.
