About Laura Diffendal

Laura and Dave visited Placencia, Belize in early 2014 after deciding to relocate on the beach! We are from Cleveland, OH and we fell in love with Belize. We purchased Las Amigas Cabanas and just completed renovation. Many tell us this is the best spot in Placencia. We want everyone who comes down to say, this was the best vacation ever! We have wonderful managers, Sue and Carlos, who live on site and take great care of our guests!

Laura Diffendal purchased this cottage in 2014

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Spent our 15th wedding anniversary here and couldn't have been more pleased. Sue and Carlos went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Beautiful rooms at a fantastic location at the beginning of the Placencia sidewalk. They provided every amenity we could think of. Close to markets, shopping and great dining!

Great Location & Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

CBC was excellent! We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful resort. Our villa was clean, modern, and right on the beach! The property managers were readily available to answer any questions and were very knowledgeable. We don't normally go back to the same place twice as we like to visit new places instead, however we would make an exception for CBC! Highly recommend!
