Although it rained or was overcast most of our trip, we really enjoyed staying at the Swan Villas. Montse was very friendly and helpful regarding information and tips. The architecture and colors of the Villas were so cool; the pool is beautiful. It is a 5.5 mile drive to the town but there are several really good restaurants within walking distance. We chose to rent a car so we could travel to some of the sights on our own; best decision we made because renting a golf cart for almost the same price would've been pointless bc of the rain. Not sure driving a golf cart almost 6 miles to the town would've been our idea of fun anyway. I would definitely stay at the Villas again.

Swan Villas is a special place.

  • 5 of 5

Swan Villas design and location make it a very unique travel destination. The grounds are beautiful and clean. The look of the buildings and property set it it apart from anything else we experienced in Placencia.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

It was a piece of heaven to stay in Swan Villas, especially in the Lionfish apartment. Instead of the planned 5 nights in Lionfish we stood 4 more nights in the Turtle appartment. The location is a must see. Everything is individual and very well constructed. Besides it is very clean and perfect equipped with everything you expect. The view is gorgeous and we appreciated every moment in this place. Also, the communication with Montse was always easy, quick and accommodating. If we ever come back to Belize, this will be our first place to stay.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay, the location is about 15mns from the town, its 10kms, you can cycle easily (no slope); the villa itself is incredible, the style is very original and everything is suited for you to spend a great time. The view, the terrasse, the pool, the kayaks on the river... unforgettable! And on top of all this, the kindness of the owners!

Enjoyable stay @ Swan Villa

  • 4 of 5

Very nice stay. Montse was very kind & helpful. Aesthetics were beautiful. A little too far from Placencia village. Taxis were $20 USD one-way. This is the kind of place to stay for a week, relax, and do DIY food.

About Vacasa, Belize - Stann Creek Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
