We stay here every year for 3-4 weeks in Mar/April. We consider it our home away from home. It has all the essentials. Much more than most accomdations in the area in this price range. We love the lower apartment. This year we had friends staying in the upper one bedroom house for most of our visit. They loved it....

Hello Brian and Ann, thank you for your input on Colibri House. We appreciated the positive remarks. Because of the negative part of your review we will replace the four years old mattress. We feel that the pictures on our website clearly show the bed position in the loft. The plastic windows are exclusively for the use of the AC,...

I found my happy place at Colibri House. For a high anxiety person like myself this beautifully landscaped beachfront property provided the escape I needed in my life. We are a family of 5 and rented both units. Our teenagers stayed downstairs and my husband, our youngest daughter and myself stayed upstairs. The decks were awesome and so relaxing. My...

Oh Colibri House What a pleasure it was to vacation with you for my first time in belize! Mr Stefano made everything so personable & gave so much insight on anything I asked pertaining to Belize! This place is a breath of the freshest air imaginable with our balconies and hammocks. You can hear the ocean when you wake up...

We rented the Suite for 14 nights - March 1- March 15th. Stefano is always quick to respond and full of helpful information. The place is clean and you cannot beat the location. Quiet beach in front of house - amazing views of the sunrise - and while we were there - a Super Moon! Located just at the end...

We rented the lower level apartment for 4 wonderful nights in February, 2017. Stefano and Nicoletta are so thorough and have such a great attention to detail. Excellent suggestions, even a location for us to buy fresh fish caught by a local fisherman! Everything is in the apartment to prepare your own meals. It is located just a few seconds...

Booked Colibri House on the recommendation of friends and was not disappointed. Technically a studio since everything is in one room; small well equipped kitchen, table, futon which functions as a sofa and bed. Bathroom off of the bedroom. I used the fan and didn't access the AC because I don't really like it. Breeze was strong most of the...

Going back to Colibri House is like going home again! Stefano and Nicoletta take care of all our needs, taxi from airport, recommendations of places to eat or visit, etc. and treat us as members of the family so we look forward to seeing them again. We also look forward to Colibri House, itself, as we love to stay there...

Colibri House was very nice, but hot. The A/C is an extra charge over the apartment rental, so we did not use it, There are two floor standing fans and a ceiling fan. The kitchen is fully equipped as is the whole apartment. Seeing as we were in apartment #2, the views and breezes from the two decks were great.

This was my third Belize visit, second time to Placencia. Working with Stefano and Nicoletta and staying in the lower level of Colibri House made my time in Placencia more enjoyable than I ever anticipated. The only way it could have been better, is if I'd stayed longer! Already looking forward to my next "longer" visit to Placencia and the...
