Bright villa with shared pool access in beautiful Placencia!

This gorgeous Placencia Peninsula vacation rental features a fantastic location right on the beach, a full kitchen, space for six guests, and all the comforts of home to ensure you have a truly amazing Belize getaway!

Perched right on the sand, just a short stroll from the water of the Caribbean Sea, this home is the perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the beach. You will even be just a short walk from the lovely Placencia Village, which offers restaurants, bars, shops, and a relaxed, slow-paced atmosphere that will set the tone for your vacation.

This private upper-floor unit has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and everything you will need to have a wonderful stay. The living room is a bright an airy space, complete with vaulted ceilings, local art, and comfortable seating where you can relax. You will even have cable television and WiFi access during your stay, so you can keep entertained and connected with your loved ones back home. The living room even has French doors that open up to let in the fresh sea breeze.

Just past the living room is a modern, full kitchen, featuring everything you would find in your own home, including a stove, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker, and more. This is a great opportunity to stock up on local ingredients and try preparing a home-cooked Belizean meal right here! A six-person dining room table is just the place to enjoy a meal together.

There is also a full bathroom accessible from the main living area. While you're here you will even have a private laundry area, which will certainly come in handy after a few days of playing on the beach and exploring the region. With three bedrooms, this home is a perfect size to accommodate six guests, so whether you're traveling with your family, a few close friends, or a few couples, everyone will have a comfortable place to rest up for tomorrow's adventures.

The first bedroom has a lovely queen-size bed, and the second room has two twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king-size bed if desired. The master bedroom contains a luxuriously large king-size bed, more authentic Belizean art, and an attached bathroom with colorful tile.

If you step outside from the living room, you will find a wonderful balcony with seating, hammocks, and breathtaking views of the nearby ocean. While you're here, be sure to walk down to the Mirasol's courtyard, where you will find a shared pool, charcoal grill, and a comfortable, shaded sitting area. A dip in the pool will feel so refreshing during a balmy coastal afternoon!

With such a fantastic location, you will surely want to spend plenty of time walking along the beach, splashing in the warm water of the sea, and sunbathing on the beach chairs. Once you've had your fill of relaxing on the shore, walk into town and do some souvenir shopping, get a bite to eat at one of the restaurants, and bask in the tropical atmosphere of the charming Placencia Village. The town offers a variety of eateries, ranging from cafes to homestyle Belizean cuisine to upscale seafood fare, so don't be afraid to try new things!

This region of Belize is famous for its snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. You can rent gear right from town (or take lessons if you're a beginner), and dive underwater to marvel at the diverse sea life and the offshore barrier reef. You could also take a boat tour out to one of the many tiny islands that dot the coast, go oceanfishing, or go with a group to search for the friendly manatees that live in the lagoon.

Belize is filled with wonders, and if you want to explore more of this wonderful country, you will want to book a convenient guided tour right from town. Options are diverse, and include river cruises up the nearby Monkey River where you can see iguanas and monkeys in the trees. You could take a hiking expedition to explore the caves and waterfalls of inland Belize, or even head to one of the country's fascinating Mayan ruins. There's even the enormous Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can take walks or hikes around the preserve while watching for the tapirs, ocelots, armadillos, and nearly 300 species of birds that live here.

However you plan to spend your getaway, make it a truly one-of-a-kind trip with a stay in this oceanfront, conveniently located, and amenity-filled Belize vacation rental!

We just returned from a four-day stay here.

PROS: The villa has a nice location in the Placencia village with lots of great food options within a five-minute walk (Treehouse coffee, Sweet Dreams for breakfast, and Tutti Frutti for ice cream were our favorite stops). The pool is very nice and seems to be a distinguishing feature of the Mirasol property (we didn't see a ton of other villas with a pool). Veronique was vey friendly and helpful in advance of our visit. Everyone we met in Belize, in fact, was so nice to us and our small children.

CONS: There is an active construction site behind the property that is quite loud, starting at 7 a.m. on weekdays (except maybe Monday). The photos online do not reflect the latest (obstructed) view from the hammocks (which were great). Also, we couldn't get one A/C unit to work but never got around to calling for it to get fixed. I'm sure if we'd asked, it would have been dealt with quickly.

This house was clean and plenty big. Comfortable with extra powerful air conditioning. The only drawback was the view. The spacious beach in the photos is now a construction zone. It’s not the end of the world as you can still see the ocean and get the breeze however I was disappointed I had to look through a construction zone and workers live on site in a little shack.

Enjoyed our stay at Mirasol Mini-Villa in Placencia Village. The location was very good with a great ocean view. We spent a lot of time in the pool and on the 2nd floor deck looking over the ocean.
Richard G. Mar 2018
Amazing home in amazing location. My wife and I along with our daughters had a great time in this well appointed and well equipped central Placencia home.
Nothing was left to desire about the dwelling or the service provided!
Marilyn D. Mar 2018
The girls that ran the place were wonderful and helpful. We all had a wonderful time and hope to come back.
Patricia K. Jan 2018
The location is perfect. The people are kind and friendly. The accommodations leave a lot to be desired. For the price we paid I expected top-notch accommodations. Marisol is not that
Manager response:
We are disappointed to see this guest did not better enjoy their accommodations and wish they had informed us during their visit so we could try to assist them.

Mirasol Mini-Villa was very clean and very conveniently located. We walked everywhere. Did not need a car. The beach in front of the apartment was lovely. We really enjoyed the porch. We could be outside even if it was raining.
Ryan R. Nov 2017
Placencia has become sort of a second home to me. I am fortunate to be able to have traveled to many places in the world and have heard that sometimes you just go somewhere and it just feel right, like you were meant to be there. Placencia is that place for me. Staying at Mirasol to me is more than living that dream. It's a bit indulgent, but isn't that what vacations are about? Caribbean front, beautiful sand, private pool, BBQ, sweet hammocks on the porch, walking distance to great food, great drinks and a local community that feels like family. This was our second stay at Mirasol. Both times have been with my parents and a retired friend. We all absolutely loved it and recommend it. We will be back.
Corine F. Sep 2017
The mini villa Mirasol is located right on the beach and also not a far distance from restaurants and supermarkets. The villa is clean and all the kitchen appliances work. It's clean and comfortable . Pool was great and the outdoor furniture and hammocks are the best for relaxation.
Michael W. Aug 2017
We enjoyed our stay here, the only complaint that we have was that the beach wasn't the nicest and access to get to the house is not the greatest especially with all the construction going on around the place
Darrell R. Jun 2017
Very nice stay on the top floor, beautiful views of the balcony and a relaxed atmosphere. Love Placencia!
Ryan W. Jun 2017
Had a great stay in the mini villa with friends. Clean, spacious, amazing view of the sea. A lovely patio and pool to relax in. A short walk to Placencia bars and restaurants.
Jane B. May 2017
Mirasol is a lovely vacation rental in Placencia, Belize. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The balcony overlooking the ocean is spectacular and we enjoyed the hammocks and lounge chairs provided. The property is very clean and spacious. It is within walking distance to shops, grocery stores and restaurants. We would definitely recommend it.
Frank R. Apr 2017
Mira Sol is a very nice property. There is no better location in Placencia!
Cassady B. Mar 2017
Great house, this is the second time we have stayed here and we would stay here again in the future. During our stay, the unit was broken into from the upper balcony door. Be sure to lock all the doors and keep your items in the safe as there had been a sting of break-ins in the area. This was our 3rd trip to Placencia and we had never had any safety issues before so I think it is not normal for the area.
Larry B. Feb 2017
Great Villa located in a perfect spot to experience the local culture and offering of a small Belezian Village.
Marianne W. Jan 2017
The Mirasol made a lovely place for our family of 6 adults to settle into for a week long stay in Placencia. We essentially had a semi-private beach that was perfect for swimming and sunning. On the second floor, there is a lovely wide balcony overlooking the beach filled with hammocks and adirondack chairs. We spend a lot of reading, chatting and napping time there. The location and set up of the villa brought wonderful sea breezes, which made it very lovely, as well as close proximity to stores and restaurants. We walked all over town from this central location and loved it. The staff (local manager Lucas) was very attentive, friendly and helpful. One small downside is that there is a large construction project tight next door. We weren't bothered the first 5 days due to the holidays, but once they started working again, the noise was substantial. May want to ask when this will be finished, or at least the loud initial work finished, when scheduling your trip. Otherwise, bellisimo!
Manager response:
We are excited to read all the positive benefits this home has to offer. It has been confirmed that the noise issue from a nearby construction site has been resolved. If inner tranquility is what you seek, this is the place to be!
Sheila K. Jan 2017
We spent Christmas at Mirasol and cannot recommend it more highly. It is in the perfect location - on the best point along the beach, near the boardwalk and easy walking to everything you need in Placencia. The villa was really spacious, very clean and perfect for our family group (2 x grandparents and one family with two little children). There was even a Christmas tree awaiting Santa to put the presents under! We have had a holiday of a lifetime and can't recommend this place more highly.
Paulette P. Dec 2016
We will warn our friends who often visit Placencia about renting a place from Vacasa. For the very high price we paid, we certainly expected better. The location and villa itself were great.
Manager response:
We are sorry that this guest appears to have been dissatisfied with Vacasa; we appreciate any specific feedback guests wish to provide so we can improve our services.
Scott B. Oct 2016
Great place to stay. The property was very clean & the beach view is wonderful. Having a porch on both the front & the back of the house was key as we were able to sit outdoors regardless of what the weather was. The people in Placencia were very friendly & we were able to walk around the village & feel safe. Will definitely come back again!
Cindy C. Sep 2016
Placencia was an amazing village and the people were awesome. We enjoyed the location of Mirasol and the accommodations were top class. Will definitely stay here again!!
Charles Y. Jun 2016
Mirasol Mini Villa was an amazing place. The balcony is key with the evening breeze. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
James D. Jun 2016
Wonderful place close to town, markets, restaurants and bars
John F. May 2016
Great place, staff was outstanding - Thanks
Kathleen C. May 2016
Loved this condo and we are already trying to figure out when we can visit again.
Tina V. Apr 2016
Location is perfect! (until the land in front of it gets developed over the next year). Close to all great restaurants, bars, shops, so if you don't want to rent a car and travel throughout the peninsula, this is the place to be. Water pressure was weak, and the A/C in the main living room didn't work, but hopefully they'll fix those things. Other than that, we had a great stay!
Manager response:
So happy to hear that you enjoyed the home! We appreciate your feedback, and have our property manager informed to address these concerns. We hope to have you back with Vacasa soon!
Ross I. Apr 2016
Marisol is a great place right on the beach In Placencia. You have a beachfront view and a nice little pool area to retreat to if the beach gets too hot. Unfortunately, Placencia itself could use a clean-up. There was trash all over the beach and the town. Parking was also an issue. There is a great pedestrian sidewalk running along the beach however it also means you have to park 100m away from your place. The people are friendly and diving was great but I'm not sure if Placencia is worth the hassle to get to it.
Brad J. Mar 2016
First time in Placencia - a lot to do - nice restaurants - plenty to choose from. I love the walking aspect. People were very friendly. The Mirasol was very clean and spacious. Very pleased with the property - great for families. Beautiful view and beach front.
Melissa S. Mar 2016
This was a beautiful stay!! We loved the condo and it was quite and comfortable. We loved the separate room air conditioning. The view was perfect from the hammocks!! Hammocks were unexpected but very much enjoyed!
Cassady B. Jan 2016
We stayed here with a group of 6 - 4 adults and 2 kids. Being so close to the beach was great. The house is very quiet, we couldn't hear the folks in the downstairs units and they couldn't hear us. We will definitely stay here again!
Mark R. Jun 2015
The property was much better than the reviews stated, and within walking distance to everything. Placencia is a very eclectic place but everyone is very friendly, and you need to have an open mind as there is a mix of styles of buildings and associated earning levels. The diving is out of this world, when the beaches are clean they are also great. We plan to return.
John K. May 2015
Mirasol apts is very worth it- great deal, perfect location
Susan C. May 2015
Couldn't ask for a better location! Right on the beach, on the sidewalk, walking distance to every restaurant and local hangout spots! Thank you for a wonderful destination. We will be back in June with the kids:)
