My family and I recently returned from a one week stay at the Villa Verano and it is truly spectacular. From the moment that Liliana opened the door it was obviously a special place. She was such a gracious hostess as she showed us the villa that we immediately felt welcome. The house opens completely to the ocean so the views even just having breakfast are stunning. Our kids (ages 6 & 9) especially loved having our own pool. And when it was just a bit chilly at night we would all sit in the hot tub on the roof and gaze at the stars. It is also apparent that great thought and care went into the decoration and furnishings. You feel that the home is really an extension of the beautiful country. It is luxury without pretension and we felt very comfortable there. Going to sleep to the sound of the carribean ocean is something all should experience. There is a restaurant very close by that made great pizzas for the kids and we were also able to sign up for a tour to the Belize zoo and go hiking at the jaguar preserve. Another benefit is that the top floor of the villa is at the level of treetops for easy birdwatching with coffee in the mornings. I can't say enough about this unique place and would recommend it to everyone from a family vacation to a romantic getaway.
