“Great multi-generational gathering spot”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Nice, big, beautiful house that is well located. Ideal for our multi-generational family get together. Grandma had the ground level suite, the couples in the bedrooms upstairs and the kids on the many beds tucked away in lofts and side room. Well located with easy access to town and a nice spot to swim out the front door. Darryl was great at helping us navigate Placencia and in arranging side trip.

The decked out house was perfect for our family vacation. The house is clean and spacious . The breezes blow through the house so all the doors and windows can be left open. The attention to detail in house design and decor is beautiful. We spent allot of time on the decks surrounding the house; enjoying spectacular sunrises and sunsets. We dubbed the roof deck the crows nest . The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet and Placencia village was just a short walk and very picturesque. The white sand beach yard and garden with the Palapa was really a great place to lounge. Swimming off the dock there was a big plus for us having small children. The dolphin faucets in the bathroom were a real hit with our 5 grandkids ranging from 1-14. We all really loved the outdoor shower, the house canoe, bicycles and fishing right off the dock.
The Great Room let us all be together but we also had privacy due to the design of the house. The large spacious kitchen was really nice because we cook together and there was plenty of room for all our family chefs! The kids really enjoyed the games and the treasure hunt game with clues throughout the house. Despite the good Wi-Fi connection the kids unplugged on their own and played the various board games

Linda the owner was so helpful in providing us information on the area sites and found really great places to sightsee. The site staff were friendly and helpful. We plan to go back in 2013 for our 25th wedding anniversary. I highly recommend the decked out house for your next vacation weather you have a big family or are traveling solo.!

8 of us stayed at Decked Out House over New Years to celebrate one of us turning 40. It was terrific. The house was great, location was very convenient, it was affordable, Linda and Darryl were super helpful and Placencia was beautiful and so laid back. If you go, make sure you do some tours with Monkey River Alfred. He's the greatest! I'd go back in a second!

4 days in Placencia on the main floor (2nd) of the D.O.House was great, though frankly, I could have used just a few more days!
We were surprised that there were just a few screens and lots of big doors, but we kept them open and had virtually no problem with mosquitos, etc. Not sure how that would be in the stiller seasons, without the glorious tradewinds, but it worked beautifully for us. The bikes and the kayaks were a big plus. We were a family of 4, with 2 adult daughters - their sleeping space was a small den with 2 twins which worked fine. Lots of outdoor spaces and good wifi -
Linda was very helpful and accomodating, and the house sitter Darryl had good suggestions for restaurants, etc.
If you're a snorkeler or want to go out fishing, ask for Mark Leslie - he was out collecting lobster and conch and crab for lunch while we snorkeled - the best meal in Belize!

I have wanted to visit Belize for as long as I can remember. I'm delighted to say that it was everything I'd hoped for and more. My month long stay at Decked Out House was like a home away from home. The owners, Linda and Charlie were extremely helpful from the time I first inquired about my trip via email to my departure from this paradise, going above and beyond to make my entire stay comfortable and enjoyable. The staff, were friendly, helpful and very accommodating in every way. The house itself is filled with rich mahogany, delightful decorations, and warm touches throughout. It has many windows on all sides that were open to the gentle caribbean breezes at all times, making air conditioning a un needed thing. It is situated in the ideal spot, in a quiet neighborhood, just outside Placencia Village, but close enough to walk to the shops or the beach. Linda has equipped the house with everything you need to live and play, including kayaks, bikes and a canoe. The water off the dock, just outside the front door is clean, warm and perfect to cool yourself on a hot afternoon. The view from the decks that surround the house can take your breath away. With the ocean, the lagoon, the canals, the mountains, the sunrises on one side and sunsets on the other, and everything in between... life is very good in Placencia. I will definitely be returning and definitely be staying with my new friends at Decked Out House!

We rented the studio suite for 8 days. Enjoyed our stay.
Swimming off the docks in the calm lagoon was a great way to cool down. Bikes, kayaks, and complimentary wifi at our disposal.
Far enough out of town to be quit, a 5 minute bike to the pier, so close enough to enjoy town too.
House sitter doesn't know as much about area as I expected, he tried to be helpful. Linda, the owner, was wonderful.
Would stay again.

I loved the Decked Out House! A group of 9 friends rented the whole Decked Out House for a weekend getaway. We were amazed at all the rooms we kept discovering. We were so enthralled with how beautiful it was that some of us literally sang from the top deck roof. The house was absolutely beautiful both inside and out! The setting between the two canals makes for a beautiful view of the sunrise and sunset over the lagoon and mountains off in the distance. The rooms were very clean and so comfortable. The furnishings and woodwork were lovely. The house-keeper was very nice and accommodating. The house was well stocked with convenient appliances. The price was very affordable. I wish we had the time to stay for a whole week. I wished I could have spent an hour on every porch deck because of the many different beautiful perspectives the house offered. The whole house is a great place to stay for a large family, for a family reunion, or for a group of friends. A couple could also stay in one of the apartments or rooms for a romantic getaway. I would recommend the Decked Out House to anyone!
