How This Lavishly Appointed Belize Beach House Can be Yours

by Larry Waight

Admit it: You dream about beach houses. Fantasize about them. Perhaps you’re fond of books and films that stir your soul because the story took place at an idyllic beachfront home that is lovely and languid as the characters were beautiful and kind. You can keep on dreaming, or say aloud, “Life is short and meant to be lived!” by packing up those books and videos and heading to Belize where you can make your own paradise by purchasing a fabulous beach house on the famed Placencia Peninsula.

Why this area of Belize?

Because at just 16 miles long and one mile wide, your beachfront home can be situated on prime real estate that’s the epitome of beauty. Often called “barefoot perfect,” it’s reachable via a small land bridge that does more than differentiating Placencia from the rest of Belize. It’s like comparing earth to heaven.

Placencia has been declared one of the most desirable districts in Belize by ex-pats, travel writers, and folks who make it their business to hang out on the nation’s best beaches. Owning a Placencia beach house gives you an address you’ll be delighted to show off and once you find out how affordable both your beach home and the Belize cost of living happen to be, making this move may be much closer than you imagine.

Unexpected benefits of living in a beach house

While arising every morning to gentle breezes wafting off the ocean is a treat unto itself, you may be surprised to learn that homes edging a coastline come with health benefits. Walking in the sand and swimming in the surf doubles down on your fitness goals, the sea air, and saltwater remedy sinus issues, and brain waves respond positively to tides, calming, relaxing, and soothing stressors away.

The sun shines perpetually in Belize—even when showers make flowers—and home ownership comes with free therapeutic benefits that trigger the endocrine to release feel-good chemicals. Entertain inside and outside year-round and Placencia Village homeowners enjoy a healthy return on investment, so resale value is solid and reassuring.
