How about a writer's retreat, a spot on earth where the surroundings ooze with creative energy? Energy that takes the form of allowing one to lounge in a hammock all afternoon and dream of how lucky we are for being in this spot even if only for a few days? Colibri House has that feel, right in the heart of... More

I totally enjoyed My 3-day stay at Colibri ... the hummingbird in Placencia's marine jungle. Colibri's location allowed my daughter and I to feel like we had our own private beach ... while being just a lazy stroll away from the Placencia action. Above all, I will remember star gazing from its top balcony ... as di sound of waves... More

My husband and I spent a beautiful week at this lovely house.The beach is just steps from the door and the village is well within walking distance. You do not need a car when staying at Colibri House because everything is within walking distance. Stefano and Nicoletta are available to answer any questions about the house/village and surrounding areas. Stefano... More

I spent an unforgettably wonderful week at Colibri House! Loved walking out the door and having the beach only steps away. Everything I needed was in the apt. super clean and well organized. Exactly how a beach vacation should be. Thank you Stefano!

My first visit to Placencia was in April 2015. I travelled Solo which was new for me. I couldn't have asked for a better experience by staying at Colibri House. It was quaint, clean, safe, a few steps from the sea and close to all amenities. Nicoletta and Stefano were perfect hosts. Stefano met me on arrival and was gracious... More

We have stayed at the Colibri House a number of times in recent years, including a month long stay this past March. It is quaint, clean and comfortable with many of the ammenities of home. The house or the studio (we stayed in both) are perfectly suited for couples. Nicely located within walking distance of all there is to offer... More

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....
