My husband and I visited Placencia in 2013. We met Nicolette and Stefano on that visit. It was an easy decision who to contact for my return visit with a friend. Colibri House reminds me of old Placencia. Still pure and quaint. It's a lovely comfortable home with great access to the beach and village. I like having the beach... More

My husband and I spent the month of March at Colibri House. Stephano and Nicoletta were extremely accommodating and looked after our every need! The refrigerator died one afternoon and low and behold, they somehow managed to get a brand new one to replace it immediately. The view is fantastic, especially from the upper deck!

Pretty much what we expected, very cottagey and rustic. Great location, great view....steps to the beach. Lots of seaweed on the beach but that's nature. Less than 10 min walk to all that Placencia has to offer. Needs a microwave, beach chairs that's all the negatives really. It was great to have Nicoletta so close by with her friendly smile....

My wife and I stayed at Colibri House for 10 days. Colibri House was just what we expected. The house is clean, quiet, comfortable and an easy walk to the stores and restaurants. Stefano is very helpful and willing to give suggestions anytime. We are planning our visit for 2016.

Barbara and I stayed at Colibri House last year for 2 weeks, and decided that we liked it so much that we booked it for 4 weeks for the month of Feb. Stefano and Nocolletta are the best. We were treated as well as being at home. The handyman next door turned out to be the best guy in the... More

Received a warm welcome (despite the time restraints on hosts as other guest checking out) from Stefano & Nicoletta. Place was exactly as advertised. All suggestions offered turned out to be great. A private, quiet place, except neighbor’s dogs barking. My husband and I stayed here in March 2014. The house is a bit rustic but cute, nice and clean;... More

Hi Cindy!!! What a luck we got in touch again! Thank you for your nice review and for recommending our place to Bill's sister. It has been a Easter Miracle because we could accept her reservation.

Stayed here quite some time ago, though as we all do is generally not take the time right away to write a good review. Stefano was a great host right from check in till we left, checking in every so often to ensure all was ok or anything needed. My wife and I rented the upper unit, which was spectacular... More

We stayed here during our last visit to Placencia quite a few years ago now. Despite the time lag, we have never forgotten our stay there. When we found this lovely spot, the B & B was quite new and only the first floor was rented out. We were excited to recently learn that now the second floor is available... More
