About Max Stabin
I’m originally from Louisiana, but consider myself an Oregonian after 25 years here. I like the proximity of Belize to the US. It’s a quick escape from home into the quiet warmth of Belize. When I walked into Placencia Village I immediately fell in love with the remoteness, yet closeness to everything I would need while relaxing. I like to fish, snorkel and scuba dive. The warm, clear water in Belize makes all of these activities awesome. In fact, when I don’t want to get in a boat to fish, I can fish right off my boat dock outside my townhome. Even better, after I catch fresh fish off the dock, Edwin (the on-site caretaker) and I throw it on the grill. I bring the fish and he brings the mashed potatoes. Good thing we both enjoy BBQing and the outdoors. I have a background as an owner-operator of hotels and restaurants. I’m a believer in superb customer service and a good product for a fair price. I have an excellent reputation where I live as both a hotel owner and restaurateur. I like to believe I serve the best Thai food locally. While in Belize, I get my fix for Thai food at Thai Friday in Placencia. Please say hello to SiriPohn for me – tell her Max sent you.
Max Stabin purchased this Townhouse in 2013
Why Max Stabin chose Placencia
Living in often rainy Oregon, I knew I wanted to purchase outside the US and near or on a beach. I looked at Thailand, Panama and Nicaragua initially. I happened upon Belize almost by accident, but perhaps it was really coincidence and meant to be. I immediately fell in love with the people and the country. Beyond falling in love with Belize, I liked that the national language is English which makes it easy to communicate and get around. The currency is also easy to convert. The exchange rate is a simple conversion of two-to-one (2:1) with the majority of businesses willing to take either US dollars or Belizian dollars. Placencia Pointe provides the type of seclusion that is lacking in our hectic western lives. It’s close enough to town for a refreshing, easy walk, yet secluded on a secure lagoon right on the sea. Additionally, I love that I can walk out the door and leave it wide open or unlocked without a worry. Yes, it’s that safe and private. And Edwin is the best!
What makes this Townhouse unique
I love that each unit is multi-level (three-story), without anyone above or below. The only thing above each unit is a covered rooftop palapa with an authentic thatched hut. The panoramic view from inside or the rooftop is breathtaking! It is serenely quiet by day, by night, at sunset or sunrise. I love the views from each veranda. Gorgeous and instantly relaxing!

Great spot, close to everything!
We enjoyed our stay. Great house with an incredible view from the top floor. Very comfortable with someone there to handle any issues if they arise. So may things to do that we spent most of our time out and about. We did enjoy the kayaks that they have available to use.
This property is absolutely beautiful! Our travel to the property got changed last minute due to weather, but the staff was still right on time meeting us and getting us into the property. We loved the double Master bedroom floorplan since we were traveling with another couple. The pool and grounds are very well kept and maintained. We didn't mind having to cross the channel for the days that we were there, someone was always waiting to run us across on the pontoon boat it seemed. It is a little way out from the town but we liked the peace and quiet but you would need a golf cart if you are not up for biking. Over all very happy with our stay.
Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Max’s place
The location is perfect: tucked away in the quiet yet walking distance to town and all the happenings. Max’s place is contemporary, clean with all amenities included. Would definitely return and highly recommend this place.
Always a great time
KJ is the best tour guide on the peninsula. Monkey River, Snorkeling etc. ask Edwin to book you with KJ
Quiet and relaxing location
Easy going atmosphere, very clean and modern. A golf cart will come in handy to get back and forth to the village.
