First off, having your own private island is unbelievable! Everything is exactly as pictured online. The food was great and reasonably priced. The whole staff was awesome! Victor is the best cook and all meals were delicious. The town of Plalencia is authentic, not commercialized or touristy, which was really nice. We did the snorkeling tour and saw amazing fish and coral reefs. Then swam with sharks, stingrays and a sea turtle. Everything was clean and well kept. I loved our outdoor shower and used it daily. Accommodations were nice and comfy. Pool was nice. We paddle boarded, kayaked and swam in the private beach. To top it off, we had perfect weather the entire stay. Thanks Talia for answering our many questions and making the reservation process worry-free! Thanks to the staff at LHC for making our stay super enjoyable and worry-free! The best words to describe our stay are awesome and amazing!
Victor and Jessica along with the crew on the island made the trip 110% more awesome than what was expected ..Best host ever and greatest place my friends and I have ever visited. We can't wait to go back soon as possible. The amount of everything these guys do for you on the island is amazing you won't care to leave
Private and absolutely stunning views . As we arrived our short boat ride was escorted by a school of dolphins on both sides of boat. On arrival the staff began what was a week of excellent care and food prepared by Chef Victor
After the first day my biggest challenge was getting our group of ten to go on the many excursions planned. I was never able to get more than half to ever leave. This speaks to the allure of Little Harvest Caye!!
LHC is a very very special place. It is located about 3/4 mile from the very friendly village of Placencia. Just a short boat ride away which can be had by a simple request to Osmar or Victor. It is the perfect place for a 10 to 14 person family get away. Once there your worries are gone. Victor and Jessica are your cooks. And to call Victor a cook is an understatement. He is a chef in every way. He collects the local produce and fish and creates the most amazing meals. The only disappointing part of our trip was saying goodbye. Soaking at the beach or pool while sipping Jessica's margaritas will be remembered forever. Make sure you do the Monkey River trip and the snorkeling on the outer reef is also a must. I highly recommend using Mabel to book everything. I can't praise the island and the folks that help you enough. Bring a good camera for the sunrise and sunsets.
This is my third visit to Belize and once you see the color of the water and the sky, it never leaves your mind. So on my third trip to this lovely country I painted my nails 'Little Harvest Caye blue is what I named my color.' Now permanently etched in my memory banks are the clean, white sands and iguanas and the especially marvelous open air bathrooms in each cottage suite. It was an amazing experience to share an island with four other couples who were thoughtfully selected to create an easy, relaxing way to bring in the New Year and recover from the holidays. Our meals were lovingly prepared with fresh juices (cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple), and other breakfast delights, generous lunches and delectable dinners! The staff was extremely attentive to ones every needs. I can recommend the cocoa sugar scrub and massage. Imagine your bedsheets smelling like chocolate the next morning! What???

These words seem trite in trying to describe our stay for the most amazingly wonderful and relaxing week in paradise. A private island that is a close 5 minute boat ride to the Placencia peninsula and town. You will feel like a Rockstar staying here as the wonderful staff spoils you and the chef concocts delicious meals 3 times a day. This place is close to, if not, Unicorn status. We did the Jaguar Preserve tour, and floated down the Stann Creek in tubes. Great tour, informative and fun. Fished for Bones, Permit and Tarpon. Floated in the water off the private beach and drank cases of Belikins. Had the massage therapists come out to the island and did a Spa Day. Highly recommend you do this. Best massage ever and out on your own porch. Lots of activities and water toys. Incredibly relaxing and such a perfect vacation. Watched a stunning full moon rise behind the cottages lighting up the sea. Sunsets beyond compare. Even saw some rainbows. Bucket list this one. Then bucket list it again. We are, as we were so sad to leave once our week was up.
Finding this island paradise earned me some big brownie points. Five couples traveled together and had a week that we will never forget. From the boat ride in, to the incredible layout and accommodations, LHC is an excellent place to unplug and unwind. The staff was great and attentive but not annoying. The casitas are over-the-top and will quickly introduce you to luxury meets nature. My wife and I were in the Dolphin suite and it had it all, including one of the most unique bathrooms I've ever seen. With a commercial kitchen, a great pool and lounge area and plenty of beach and water for activities, we didn't venture off the island very much. If you do, there is a golf cart available for your use on the mainland. You can tailor your menu to your taste and the cook knows and identifies those with food allergies. Having your own island is pretty cool and sure to bring out the best from your friends. The memories will follow.
