We landed at Placencia airport to find Bill waiting for us with Scurvy, the resident retriever. Arriving at our bungalow, we found it to be exactly as advertised- cosy, quiet, and right on a beautiful stretch of tranquil beach.
Bill and Adriane were helpful and friendly, even picking up groceries to stock our fridge prior to our arrival. Area tours were easily arranged with their assistance, and they gave great advice on which tours to take and which could be done on our own. There are a couple of decent restaurants nearby (and one great one).
Maya Beach is at the quieter end of the peninsula- those looking for late-night bars may be better off in Placencia proper, but for a quiet retreat Barnacle Bill's was perfect. Hammocks, warm water, and cold beer were all we needed for a great stay.
