“Wonderful cabana in a beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 for a stay in November 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Our stay at the Maine Stay cabanas was truly memorable. The owners of this facility have done a magnificent job of designing and building cabanas which are both comfortable and functional while maintaining the natural feel and beauty of the surroundings. The grounds of the property are beautifully maintained and there is nice palapa for all guests to enjoy. Our stay (13 days) was at the Sunset House (1 Br - 1 Ba) which was both very private and quiet. Two French doors open to a beautiful covered deck (complete with 2 ceiling fans), overlooking the ocean which is a mere few feet away. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary amenities and utensils, the indoor shower is large enough for two and there is a full size washer and dryer. There is both an outside shower and a foot rinse station which proved beneficial in keeping the sand outside. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Maine Stay and are already planning a return visit.

“The Maine Stay . . . Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

people found this review helpful

The Maine Stay offers superb accommodations and hospitality for vacationing in Placencia, Belize. The owners, Drew and Karen, ensure that your vacation needs are met as far as living quarters, activities, and optional staff assistance. This was our first vacation to this area and we plan to travel there again as well as stay at The Maine Stay. The cabannas are located near the edge of the beach which allows for very pleasant breezy and cool nights. The people are very friendly and there are a lot of wonderful activities in driving distance if you choose. In summation, The Maine Stay is an excellent place to stay and vacation. In a word . . . EXCELLENT!

“Great Stay”

Recently returned home from another great trip to Belize. I love the destination, there is so much to see and do and it is all easily arranged. We stayed at The Maine Stay which turned out to be an excellent choice for 2 couples traveling together. It was the ultimate in convenience. Karen and Drew are great hosts and available if needed to meet your needs.
Enjoyed breakfast and a couple dinners at the Maya Beach Hotel and Bistro-excellent food and exceptional service. We look forward to visiting The Maine Stay again in the future and would highly recommend this property.

“The Maine Stay - A place to relax, revive, and refresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Two of us just spent a totally relaxing week at The Maine Stay in Seine Bight, Belize. The property was just as the descriptions and photos described. Drew and Karen, the owners, were extremely helpful but never intrusive. They had our grocery order on the counter when we arrived. Winston at JAGZ Auto Rental was very reliable and reasonable. Maya Airlines flew us to/from Belize City and Placencia. It was a fast flight to get to Placencia where Drew met us at the airport. I spent a week in Seine Bight sixteen years ago and I was delighted to see that not much had changed. Here are some of our favorite memories:

*Getting reacquainted with Lola, the artist. She was as friendly as ever and had moved to her new place after a hurricane destroyed her previous location.
*Buying fresh lobster from a man in a canoe right on the beach. Best meal ever!
*Feeding Lady, the resident dog. She will eat just about anything but definitely prefers Alpo Prime Cuts dog food.
*Eating at the Maya Hotel Bistro where the coconut shrimp was our favorite. Their Happy Hour is excellent.
*Fishing on the pier and catching a fish with a licorice jelly-belly - much to the amusement of the few others nearby.
*Discovering the chocolate factory and eating delicious dark, dark chocolate.
*Eating breakfast at Dawn's in Placencia. The breakfast sandwich was huge and delicious.
*Enjoying the atmosphere of Omar's in Placencia. The special of the day was excellent.
*Eating fresh coconut macaroons from Brenda near the pier.

As you can see from the above information, we spent our time eating, drinking, relaxing and actually doing nothing! What a fabulous place!

“One Of Our Best Vacations Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our stay very much. The cabanas/decks are very well designed with quality construction. It all worked out great for our group. Also after checking out the area, I think it has the best beach property on the peninsula. Kayaks are provided with the property so no need to rent them. We made good use out of them. Security was not an issue.

Lots of good restaurants near by. You also get a good flavor of the local culture in the town of Seine Bight. Appear to be very happy and friendly people.
