My wife and I stayed at the Colibri House studio and it was GREAT and so much more than expected. Been to Placencia twice and stayed at the Colibri once and will not stay anywhere else in the future. The night we arrived it was pouring rain out and the taxi pulled up and there

I dealt with Stefano through email when booking the property and he was very prompt in his responses to me and was very helpful. Nicoletta is the one that you deal with when actually at the house. Her hospitality cannot be described, she was extremely kind and helpful with

My husband and I decided to go back to Belize and stay in Colibri House for our honeymoon. We had such a great experience the first time we stayed at Colibri House, and the second time was just lovely as well! We did review it the first time as well (but I've forgotten my old

Our first time to Placencia and we love it. We actually have a couple more days left and do not want to leave. Upon arrival, Nicoletta was there to greet us. She checked on us periodically to see if we needed anything. The Colibri house was perfect for us, right on the

We loved the location because it was quiet at night but close enough to walk down the beach or sidewalk to town. We had fabulous views of the Caribbean Sea from two upstairs decks and enjoyed swimming and playing on the beach - just steps from the door! Nicolette and Stefano

It's a studio so there is not a separate bedroom, however, it is a large space with kitchen area. Non-smoking but table and chairs right outside the front door. I can't say for certain on the rates since we only stayed a few days but I imagine Stefano would offer extended stay rates as others in the area do!

Hi! Yes Placencia is a charming Village.... The Colibri House is located on our beach front property in a residential area called Harbour Place that run from the Ocean to the Lagoon. If you know Placencia you will possibly know the area of the Atlantic Bank Building and Top Value Supermarket located by the main road. Actually Harbour Place is situated 90 yards down south of this 2 business ( but of the beach ;) so we are definitively in the Village, in a quiet area, on the beach and far from the main road but close to everything... In any case we offer to our guests a few old bicycles for free to move around. Hopefully you will decide to stay with us, all the best! Stefano

Hi! Thank you for asking and thank you for answering... I think that all the Mosquito Coast of the Caribbean Sea is more affected by plastic pollution at the beginning of the rain season. Do you remember the last images of Mosquito Coast with Harrison Ford? These shots have been played in Belize many years ago!!! This because in the nearby Countries poor people have not any way to pay for sanitation and they through their garbage in the rivers. When the rain season begins, at the end of June, the rivers are bringing everything to the sea.... Bad but this is the world where we are living now, a lot of plastic and a lot of things we do not need at the end are barreling us everywhere, not only in the sea... The good thing is that when we have this problem in Placencia, we all are collecting the plastic brought by the corrent of the sea to this area. Usually it is 2 days emergency every few years. I have checked many pieces of plastic to understand where they were coming from. Made in Guatemala, made in Mexico, made in Honduras and unfortunately many of them are coming from the cruise ships... Nothing is coming from Belize, e Eco Country where we do our best to preserve our nature and environment. Another issue are the sea weeds, brought by the sea after the storms. That is a good sign. It means that the sea is not polluted. It means that in the water there are not chemicals or stuff that can hurt your health. It also help the beach to grow and usually during the folowing storm everything desappears. it is a cyclic thing managed by the rhythm of the Nature. A quality of sea weeds is called turtle grass, where the small turtles are hiding themselves to survive from the predators. Years ago I have found one small turtle in front of the Colibri House too!!! Said that the sea weeds are not a problem that affect the coast of Belize every day.... Just for a few days after the storms and it is a good sign! Best wishes, Stefano

Hi Mark I am not sure if you got my previous message. Anyway we have just increased our rates. It was years we were not doing it. We only offer weekly rates, but of course if you decide to saty with us we will offer you a little discount. I do not think that in the year 2016 we will change our rates but we are also in the process to add AC improving so our little business. We were planning to charge US$12/night more if used but believe me when I say that in January AC is not necessary. It follow our 2015 rates for both units, I wish you all the best! Stefano The new high season rates related to the Suite of the Colibri House in the year 2015 will be US$110/night plus 9% of hotel tax. US$ 730/week plus tax. The new high season rates related to the Studio apt of the Colibri House in the year 2015 will be US$ 90/night plus 9% of hotel tax. US$ 590/week plus tax.

"Either unit is great for couples."
"We loved being upstairs - but not good for someone with mobility issues as the stairs to upstairs sleeping area are steep."
"Upper flat has better view. Stairs to navigate. Lower flat a little smaller, water view. All creature comforts. Fans. Air con optional."
"We prefer the upstairs for view."
"Apartment #2 is the absolute best for sea and general all around viewing."
