Stefano was easy to work with, responsive, honest and reliable. He gave wonderful recommendations for local places to eat and visit. The house was located in a quiet, private setting with the beach right there. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. Short walk up the sidewalk (5 minutes) to the "main" part of town. It is Belize, so of... More

Our number place to stay in Placencia. Both the upstairs and the downatairs room are great! With two balconies upstairs you can lounge and catch some cool breeze on either one. Downstairs is more child friendly as I could cook while still keeping an eye on my daughter as she built sandcastles right in front of the house!

We recently stayed two nights in the upstairs portion of Colibri House. We have been coming to Placencia for twenty years. In spite of the continual development, Placencia remains an interesting and picturesque beach community. Colibri House is a wonderful place to enjoy the village. The building is constructed with beautiful tropical hardwoods. The upstairs unit features a well-equipped kitchen,... More

Colibri House is comfortable, spotlessly clean, in a great location, and feels like you've just stepped into your own shore house. My husband and I were in the upper unit; our 18 y.o. son was downstairs. Stefano was a welcoming host and gave us the rundown on the local restaurants and grocery stores. Prior to our arrival, he was able... More

Close, but off the beaten path. Amazing View from the second floor to have breakfast or play cards overlooking the beach and ocean. Full AC. This place was the best that we stayed at in Belize. Feels like a tree house or surfer shack on steroids, large and very well done. Stefano is an amazing and accommodating host!

The owner Stafano is great, very helpful. We we're chatting for a while about Placencia when I arrived and he showed me the best spots, lent me a bike, and advised on the best Italian wine!

Stayed 4 nights in June in top suite. Stefano levies a modest extra charge for the aircon which is worth every cent as this was the hottest time of the year - but it takes about 6 hours to cool the suite so turning aircon off while out during the day not a viable option as the rooms are still...

The Colibri House is our favorite go-to place to stay when in Placencia, Belize. We have stayed here numerous times, sometimes a month at a time. The suite or studio are both nicely decorated, unassuming, and quite functional with everything you need. The location is great as it is close enough to all the happenings in the village to be...

We were very happy with our stay in Colibri House. We were there for 12 nights and I have to agree with everything Bill Speer says below (including the negative of the inability to fix the toilet) however we loved the location just a little bit away from all the action as it was a nice walk into town each...
