“A little slice of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2007

What a beautiful and comfortable place to stay in Belize! The Colibri Beach Villa and the town of Placencia fit our vacation needs to a tee. The apartment is immaculate and the property is a garden of Eden taken care of by Ernesto. His wife Santa ensures fresh linens and a daily housekeeping that is beyond compare.
Elsie and Brad have a marvelous location that will allow you to base your in-country travels with ease using their excellent connections with the local guide services. And the home made bread that awaits is delicious. If you have never been to Belize, this is an excellent way to experience your first trip.

What can you say about perfection other than it wasn't long enough. We needed a place to re-energize and Colibri Beach Villas did just that. Brad and Elsie are the greatest hosts, providing valuable insight as to where to eat, what tours to take, how to cook that fish, and best of all "witch hazel" for my husband's sun exposure problem. The villas are so comfortable, we slept like babies (after watching the stars). Favorite activities: walking endlessly along the barefoot perfect beaches, the warm clear water, and rating the pelican dives from our deck facing the sea. Next trip will include more adventures, we're sure. This trip was made in heaven..thank you Brad and Elsie for sharing your piece of heaven!

My husband and I, along with our best friends, had a delightful stay at Colibri Beach Villas. Going to sleep to the sounds of the waves lapping against the sandy beach and a light, warm breeze blowing was pure heaven. Elsie & Brad Elder, the owners, aim to please and that they do. Should you want to go snorkeling/diving/take a tour or learn about the flora and the fauna, just ask them or the groundskeeper, Nestor, and you'll be well informed.
The property is lovely - secluded from the main road by trees and a landscaped garden - peace and quiet rule. The beach is clean and comfortable loungers await you to lie back and enjoy the sun. Each apartment has its own patio & thatch covered hammock area (there is a name and it esapes me!!), plus a 5 second walk to the sea.
Should you wish to escape the rat race of daily life as we know it, this is the place to go. Sit back, relax, and just enjoy the beauty that this part of the world has to offer.

  • Liked — The peace & quiet and quality of the rooms
  • Disliked — Distance from large centre
  • Tips/Secrets — Be prepared to walk, bring insect repelent and watch out for sealife when walking beach.

We had a wonderful holiday at this property. A guest can be as busy he desires. I would advise asking the hosts about snorkelling. The owner showed my husband and me many sea creatures and we enjoyed the adventure immensely. She knows all about the ocean life and is willing to share her knowledge. After a wonderful day playing in the ocean, a guest must try out the hammocks. They are so comfortable and the sound of the ocean is calming. We were impressed with the beach villa as it is well built, clean, well equipped with beautiful linens, comfortable, and air conditioned. The decorating is first rate-- truly a home away from home. A person knows he is getting excellent value for money spent on a vacation. What more could a holiday be??

  • Liked — The safe, clean accommodation
  • Disliked — Having to leave and go back to reality
  • Tips/Secrets — Do not overpack. Basics are the way to go.
