Three Iguanas Villa
Reviewed 28 October 2008

I stayed at Three Iguanas this June with my two sisters and we had the most amazing week there. The property is immaculate and furnished beautifully. We enjoyed our stay so much that we actually extended it by several days.

We stayed there during Lobsterfest and the location on the harbor side made it a quiet oasis after we left the festival. Its location is also in easy walking distance from the town center.

The owners were also extremely helpful! They gave us tons of suggestions and travel recommendations that were much appreciated. If it wasn't from them, we would have never found Tutti Fruti, which has the best gelato west of Italy :-)

I'll try to attach some photos so you can see how amazing the property is for yourself!

We stayed at the brand new Three Iguanas Villa for a week in the spring and absolutely loved it! The house is available to rent in different increments (one, two or all three of the floors). I went with my whole extended family, so we took the entire house and had more that enough room. The house itself is beautiful, and stocked with plenty of amenities and thoughtful touches (like a barbeque grill), It's right on the water, so the view is beautiful as well. You can swim right off the dock at the house! The kids did that every day. The grownups enjoyed the splash pool on the top deck.

I could have just relaxed at the house all week, but there's plenty else to do. It's walking distance from the beach, lots of restaurants, dive shops (the diving in Placencia is among the best in the world) and a grocery store where we were able to find nearly everything we needed. You can also rent a golf cart to get around, but it's not really necessary.

Placencia itself is just remote enough to make you really feel like you're on an exotic vacation, but in a safe and healthy place where everyone speaks English! The village is quite undeveloped. There's not a single t-shirt/junk souvenir shop or fast food joint to be found! Loved that!

The locals are happy to arrange day trips and excursions, which can include snorkeling, a visit to Mayan ruins, and jungle trip, etc. Really something for everyone. I can't wait to go back, and we'll definitely stay at Three Iguanas Villa again. Highly recommended!
