Why Helen McCarthy chose Placencia
We have been traveling to Belize since 2014 and love it. There is so much to do and see. The people are so friendly we just kept coming back. We have had some of the best times of our life here. It really is a home away from home. As soon as we saw Sunset Pointe, we knew that we wanted to make it our second home. We purchased our unit the day it went on sale! The location is ideal - a close walk to town, but privately located at the tip of a peninsula on a dirt road. The decor of each unit is unique, warm and welcoming, not like cookie-cutter units found in many condo complexes.
What makes this Condo unique
How many places in the world can you see whales sharks, eagle rays, dolphin, manatee, sea turtles, boas, macaws, toucans, iguanas, jaguar, tapir, gibnut, deer, beautiful tropical fish and then some all in their natural habit. Fishing is some of the best in the world! Belize truly has something for everyone. WE still continue to find new adventures to do. It is complete paradise!

Spacious and well-appointed
This is a great place to stay on the lagoon side in Placencia. My family (including 4 kids - 4, 7, & 9) had plenty of room in this beautiful condo. This kids all wanted to sleep in the 3rd level bunk! We had the owner’s friend Alfred and his charming son take us out to the Silk Cayes one day for snorkeling and the lunch at the Lionfish Grill on Reef/Hatchet Caye - an amazing experience that we highly recommend! And cool that you can be picked up for boat tours right outside your door. We used the pool one afternoon and also took the kayaks around the lagoon for an afternoon, both great! We didn’t really use the kitchen for meals other than breakfast & afternoon snacks - we didn’t have a car, so it was hard to stock up, plus I was not inclined to cook on vacation :) The only thing missing at the complex is a swimming beach - which I don’t think is really possible in that part of Placencia anyway. The one day we went to the beach we just hung out at the barefoot beach bar and that worked fine (the cozy corner would be another option but it was closed on Monday). The beach wasn’t super nice (coarse sand & sea weed). We heard that the beaches in Maya Beach and Seine Bight are nicer, but we didn’t get up that way. We had breakfast at paradise resort twice - very good! And also enjoyed dinners at Rumfish y vino and the Secret Garden, and lunch at Omar’s (get the conch burrito). And gelato at Tutti Fruiti!
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Sea breezes, sun, privacy, easy walk to town, friendly and helpful caretaker, amazing views, everything you need for a relaxing and interesting vacation. The condo was well equipped and comfortable. The decks were like a little bit of heaven to sit on in the cool shade and relax and enjoy life going by on land and in the sea. The crows nest was the best!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Simply... WONDERFUL!!! Property is beautifully decorated with ample, open space and amenities for our group of 7 (6 adults, 1 child). The photos online really don't do justice to how nice the interior is decorated and constructed... love it!!!
Grounds are well-kept, clean, and as modern as one would want or expect. Great local feel, without the touristy-BS typically found in beautiful locations like Placencia. Being at the end of a peninsula really makes one feel secluded, and the 7-10 minute stroll into town was perfect at ALL hours of the day. Not once did anyone in our group (ages 69-8) feel like we were "outsiders". The friendliness of the locals (as we found pretty-much throughout all of Belize) was refreshing... human beings being human :)
The property manager, Francisco, was amazing during our stay. He really made us (more importantly our 8-yr old) feel comfortable and one of the family! He was always available (seriously, ALWAYS) and happy to help. Pool/hot tub and deck areas are well maintained - we never had any issues. Okay, a couple small tables would be welcome additions, but the color-changing pool lights at night even things out ;) Roof-top sitting areas and having 2 piers available for soaking in the reason why we came are also very nice.
Thank you for having us, we'll be in contact for our next trip if you'll have us!
So glad you enjoyed yourself! We wish that experience for all our guests! Please come back and enjoy yourself again at our home at Sunset Pointe.
Wonderful stay in Placencia!
This is our second time to stay at Sunset Pointe but first time at Helen's lovely place. It was soooooooooooo much nicer to be on the top floor and Helen could not be a more responsive and considerate host. She always responded to me within minutes it seemed and was extremely accommodating. We always love Placencia and Sunset Pointe is a wonderful location. Having Helen as the excellent host she is just made our trip that much more perfect. Thanks Helen! :-)
Thank you Adele! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we can welcome you back again!
Best place to stay in Placencia
Walking distance to town yet tugged away and quiet, with private beach and pool. Place is clean and comfortable with all amenities including washer and dryer. Francisco the caretaker and his family are great and helpful. Would highly recommend!
Thank you Mary. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Sunset Pointe.
Beautiful condo and location
The condo was much more than we expected. There were patios on both sides so we could choose our view of the water. The onsite managers, Francisco and Rosa, were very kind and helpful.
Thank you Kathe. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay!
