I don't even know where to begin with this review because I loved these bungalows so much. The bungalows are located about 15 minutes from Placencia, a 5 minute walk from a grocery store and the only bowling alley in the country, as well as a 10 minute drive of about 10 restaurants. The owners of the bungalows are building...

Thanks for the review! But to clear things up, all bungalows DO have water heaters. Not sure what happened but when you come for the next visit, we will make sure you get that warm shower!

We just returned from our 8th visit and once again we awoke in our private beach house to the many sounds of tropical birds and the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea. Barnacle Bill's is the perfect place from which to explore the natural beauty of the area, both land and sea, or just kick back in the hammock and...

We enjoyed our stay at Barnacle Bill's! Right on the beach with sounds of the surf through the night, and amazing birds singing at dawn. The bed was quite comfortable and it was nice to have our own kitchen for cooking. Full size refrigerator was very nice to have. Enjoyed being able to walk a few yards away to sit...

We were so excited to stay at this "peaceful serene property". That it was not. Our cabana was very close to the road on a small narrow lot and the truck traffic was terrible. The owner agreed. Also the construction right next door was very noisy with workers arriving early morning and running a generator all day long. At night...

While we regret you did not enjoy your stay with us, we feel we must respond to your comments. Traffic has indeed increased since the road was paved a few years back, but your comment about the cabana being “very close to the road” is wrong. I can show you a plot map showing all beach property in MB is...

Exactly what we were looking for - a quiet escape. Exactly as described - Bill and Adriane are very thoughtful hosts - we had everything we needed and more - coffee maker, coffee, filters, basic toiletries - Very tidy and you cannot beat the location - waking up to a Caribbean sunrise each morning - watching the pelicans dive.

Exactly what the pictures and reviews described, and we loved it. You can hear the waves lapping as you fall to sleep; the owners, Bill and Adrianne are friendly and let you have your space but will gladly give you recommendations and set up tours for you. It was great having our own kitchen facilities and to swim in the...

Bill and Adrianne were friendly, but not too friendly, professional yet and relaxed. Maya Beach has several excellent restaurants within a short walking distance, whether you walked on the beach on the paved road (which has very little traffic). Bill set us up on the Monkey River Tour (Cool!), snorkeling with Splashdive, and the Xunantunich/Blue Hole trip. All three were...

Just what we needed. The place is beautiful! Bill and Adriane are super nice and gracious hosts with great recommendations about things to do in the area.

Barnacle Bills Beach Bungalows was exactly what we wanted- A hut on the beach with nothing between us and the ocean except a few palm trees and two deck chairs. Just like that beer commercial. This is how it went when my fiance' (now wife) and I discussed our plans- He: Where would you like to go for our honeymoon?...

The perfect place for our relaxing vacation! The bungalows themselves are amazing and well designed. The beach is of course beautiful. Snorkeling, sea kayaking, walking the beach, and biking were fun. Bill's recommendations were spot on. Great food and cheap drinks in easy walking distance.
