We spent a couple of nights in Belize City before going to a San Pedro resort. Villa Boscardi and Francoise were so welcoming. The rooms and decor showed her decorating flair and were very comfortable. Breakfast was a delicious way to start the day of touring we had previously arranged. Francoise sent us on our way with useful ideas for... More

We spent a couple of nights here, on our way from southern Belize to Mexico. It was everything the reviews had prepared us for: a warm welcome from Francoise and Pauline, a spacious, quiet room on the ground floor and a pretty garden for sitting, breakfasting and relaxing. The attractive seafront (not for swimming) is a short walk away, as... More

Thank you for your gracious review. We love when you express your desires. We realize that Belize City is a pretty hot city specially during the summer months and imagine how much our guests would enjoy a small pool in our back garden. We listen to you and if God permits, we do have on our agenda to build a... More

If you NEED to stay in Belize City because of flight times in and out, then stay here. It's clean, well managed, breakfast was tastey, and the staff are friendly. The owner sat and chatted with us while breakfast was being prepared and we picked up some fun facts and tips from her. If you order dinner from a restaurant,... More

We stayed a Villa Boscardi for a few nights recently as we passed back and forth through Belize City and it became a real home from home. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, friendly staff, great breakfasts and run by the lovely and v.helpful Francoise. Definitely recommend.

The Villa had everything we could possibly want. An absolutely beautiful and well-appointed room, excellent food, lovely staff, wonderful owner who took the time to visit with everyone and make us all feel at home. The common space was lovely and the outdoor plantings were great!

Lovely, immaculate room and delicious breakfast in a neighborhood as safe as Belize City gets. Our host and staf were fantastic and helpful. Not a neighborhood you'd want to walk around in at night, but few in the city are.

Thank you for your wonderful review. You know, it is funny because it is 26 years I live in Belize City. I have two lovely daughters that were born here. We did every thing out door, day or night and never felt in danger. Surely, we always used our common sense and never attracted attention with unnecessary jewelry, camera, etc...But... More

The only place I would stay in Belize City. Francoise was a kind and excellent host. The property being close proximity to the waterfront to go for a nice walk, and also within walking distance to several good restaurants, and a grocery store. The neighborhood I felt was very safe, we had no problems wandering around. Our room was large,... More

We pre-booked Villa Boscardi so that we would have a place to stay on the night of our arrival, me from Toronto and my sister from Europe.
