Welcome to Bougainvilla Belize. This peaceful luxury home is situated on the Caribbean beachfront on the Placencia Peninsula at its very north end. Our home is located about 9 miles North of the Placencia Airport and about 3 hours by road from the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City. Using our home as a base, you can have close access to the fantastic Caribbean for diving, fishing, and snorkeling; to the white sand beaches; to the jungle adventures of hiking, waterfalls, caves, river-tubing, wildlife viewing, and zip-lining; to the Mayan culture and many of their archeological sites; to beautiful flowers, plants, and orchids; and to bird watching, even from the deck!
Bougainvilla has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), living room with a TV, DVD player, and a stereo system, library stocked with books and DVD's, and laundry with washer and dryer. The dining room features a mahogany table, custom-made from local hardwood which seats 12 people (can be more if you wish!). There is a large deck with a pool. There is a gas barbecue and outdoor dining area and kitchen, as well as lounge chairs and hammocks for the deck. Details of the features of the house are outlined in the section Basic House Information.
The property features a beautiful 160 foot beach with palm trees and a 100 foot long dock with a covered "palapa" roofed sitting area with hammocks. Although the house is located in a rather sparsely developed area, there are several excellent restaurants within a 5 - 25 minute drive. The main village on the peninsula, Placencia village, is located at the southern tip of the peninsula, approximately 20 minutes away by car (10 miles).
There is a caretaker's cottage on the property, with the caretakers living on-site to look after the yard and house, as well as to provide any assistance required.
Pictures of the property and of some of the activities available in the area are posted in the Photo Gallery.
