Whaleshark Suite 16.515624306839854, -88.36571876386262, Placencia, Belize

With an absolutely stunning oceanfront location, ultra-easy beach access, and modern amenities, this Placencia Peninsula vacation rental has all the comforts of home! And, since it's walkable to the beach and the businesses of Placencia Village you won't even need a car!

Located just off the Sidewalk, a paved pedestrian walkway that runs through town, this home has an unbeatable location. The sand and surf are directly past your front door, and all the restaurants, shops, equipment rentals, and other businesses of Placencia Village are an easy stroll down the road.

With one bedroom and one bathroom, this ground-floor home is part of a larger house but enjoys its own private entrance, kitchen, and living areas. Inside is a colorful and warm interior that will make you feel extra welcome. With pops of tropical colors, bright tiles, and gorgeous Belizean wood cabinets, doors, and other furnishings, this home truly feels like an authentic Belize getaway.

Step into the main living area and have a seat on one of the chairs. Relax, put your feet up, and read your favorite book or watch some TV. If you open up the windows you will feel the cool coastal breeze (though there's also partial air conditioning in case the weather is a little too balmy). There's also a small table where you can set up your laptop and check your emails via the free WiFi, though it's also a perfect place to savor a home-cooked meal or write some postcards for family back home.

A full kitchen may look compact, but it has all the necessities, including a fridge, stove/oven, coffeemaker, and toaster. While there are dozens of fantastic restaurants in the village, you can also stop at a market and buy some fresh, local ingredients to cook up in your own kitchen. And, with colorful tiles and beautiful wood cabinets, you may be inspired to whip up some authentic Belizean cuisine!

The bedroom offers a soft and cozy queen-size bed and a closet to store your belongings, and there's also a twin-size bed. In the bathroom are even more bright tiles and a shower where you can rinse off the saltwater after a long day of splashing around the nearby Caribbean Sea. This home comfortably sleeps three guests.

When you're ready to hit the beach, simply walk outside and down a few stairs to find yourself right on the sand! (Please note that the upstairs terrace is not available for guest use.) Here you can relax on a beach chair and sunbathe, go wade or swim in the warm ocean, or simply bask in the beauty of this area. If you rent kayaks, snorkeling equipment, or diving gear in town, you can easily explore more of the ocean and the calm lagoon, which is just on the west side of the peninsula.

This region is a fantastic place for watersports, including boating, fishing, diving, and more. There are all sorts of sea life to search for, as well as dozens of nearby offshore islands to explore. If you want to venture into Belize's interior, book a guided trip to tour the Cockscomb Basin jaguar sanctuary, visit ancient Mayan ruins, go spelunking, take a boat trip down Monkey River, or trek through the jungle.

If, however, you prefer to stick a little closer to town, you will still find plenty of ways to stay busy. In Placencia Village are a huge variety of restaurants - ranging from authentic Belizean food to Italian cuisine to upscale seafood fare and more - as well as shops, markets, and other businesses. Stroll along the Sidewalk, get a coffee or smoothie, do some souvenir shopping, then relax on the beach.

However you spend your stay, this oceanfront, colorful, and modern Belize vacation rental will be the perfect home away from home!

    The most relaxing holiday spot ever. We really hope to come back soon. Location of the property is perfect, you could not ask for a better view. And the beach is so quiet, many mornings I had the ocean all to myself!

    We had a fantastic time in Placencia! It is a very relaxed and laid back place, with beautiful views and great activities. We had a perfect place with the beach right in our backyard which we had almost entirely to ourselves the whole trip. I would definitely go again.

    Staying here was a great experience. We were very close to the water and had a grand view of everything. The place was very close to the Sidewalk which took us anywhere we needed to go -- dive shop, restaurants, cafes. The bedroom is air conditioned so we did sleep well at night -- during the day it was hot inside but we stayed out on the beachside porch when we weren't swimming and snorkeling. We will stay there again if we return to Placencia.

    This was a great spot to stay but not easily accessible if you have luggage and although there is a pathway most of the way carrying bags after long distances almong sand is not easy. Also the reverse when leaving. All restaurants, supermarkets and coffee shop in easy accessible distances. Very good and reccommended

    My husband and I stayed in the Whale Shark for 9 days (beginning of March 2016). It was absolutely perfect for us. It was very roomy, and clean with a wonderful little kitchen to cook as little or as much as you would like. We were able to arrange, through Vacasa, to have a gentleman pick us up at the airport and stop by the grocery store in order for us to grab a few items to stock our kitchen. Only buy what you want to carry! There are other little stores, within walking distance, where you can buy things during your stay, you don't have to get it all at once. The driver is very friendly, and more than happy to help carry luggage.

    Whether you want a vacation of pure relaxation and enjoying the view of the ocean from your front porch, or going out on excursions every day this is the place for you to stay. Placencia has beautiful beaches and is a very friendly little little village to visit. If you're interested in booking excursions, check out Eagleray Tours, they are conveniently located right next door and extremely easy to work with!

    I highly recommend this condo. 1st floor, right on beach, great front porch. Walk to everything yet felt pretty private. Placencia is great place to relax or party or both.
