Enjoy sunrises on the balcony, watch the pelicans catch their fish right in front you, swim and snorkel in the beautiful water right at your feet, and explore all that Belize has to offer.

Amenities include two private bathrooms, hot and cold water, fully equipped kitchen, fans and air conditioning in in all rooms, washer & dryer in master bathroom, parking in private garage, Cable TV and wireless Internet access.

Kirsten and Per Ole Kristensen were both born in Denmark and moved to the United States with their two daughters in 1998 after living in Hong Kong for three years. In their 30+ years of marriage the two have traveled the world in search of adventure, culture, and relaxation. As the time came for them to consider retirement, they began looking for the perfect place for a second home. After considering countless locations from the French Riviera to British Columbia, they finally discovered their paradise in English-speaking, beautiful Placencia, Belize.
Idyllic, fantastic vacation!
We loved our week at the White House! Starting with her detailed directions for our drive from the airport in Belize City, Kristen was accommodating, helpful, and welcoming. The drive was a delight thanks to Kristen's instructions of where to stop for coffee, juice, yogurt, or farm tours along the way. There could not be a better location in Placencia than the White House! We walked right outside the door to swim in a perfectly calm sea. We walked along the beach or on the sidewalk or main road into town for delicious meals. The grocery store and fruit stands were just a short walk and the kitchen well stocked for anything we wanted to prepare for ourselves. The view is nothing short of spectacular. Each morning we watched another gorgeous sunrise from the generously sized and comfortable veranda. The house was perfect for two couples, and the 3rd bedroom would have worked well had there been two more people. The outdoor shower was splendid and provided a glorious view of the sea. Day trips were within an hour's drive: Cockscomb Nature and Jaguar Reserve; the Mayan Center; Che'll Chocolate Factory; Bunches of Fun Banana Farm tour. We also enjoyed the spa, lunch, and beach at the Naia Resort. Nick greeted us upon arrival and departure and made it clear that we could contact him for help with anything that we needed. If you travel to Placencia, you will be very very happy if you stay in the White House.
Awesome 2 Weeks in Paradise
We spent the holidays at the White House in Placencia (Dec. 2018 into Jan. 2019) and had a fantastic time. The view is incredible and the accommodations are comfortable and clean. Three bedrooms were great for our crew of 4. Loved the outdoor shower off the master bedroom. The kitchen was great as we enjoyed cooking, mixing our version of Caribbean cocktails, and eating breakfast at home since not everyone gets up at the same time. Wi-Fi was also great which meant the world to our video-editor son who needs fast internet. We did use the air conditioning in the bedrooms at night because of the humidity but there is a great breeze blowing through the house when the doors are open. The TV has more channels than anyone could possibly need (I got hooked on an Indian show that made no sense to me but was visually stunning and the kids got into Amazon Prime and Netflix so they were wanting for nothing). Nick took excellent care of us, as did Vilma. Having a washer and dryer meant packing less stuff! We rented a golf cart for the 2 weeks and enjoyed our drives in and around Placencia. By day 10 I was looking at Placencia real estate! One of the big grocery stores is at the end of the street, a 4 minute walk. Some of the restaurants in town were hit or miss though we had consistently excellent meals at Dawn's and The Shak. We also rented a car for a day and drove to Mayflower/Bocawina for ziplining and a waterfall hike. The boys went diving with Splash and enjoyed their trips. All in all a great vacation!
This house was a piece of Belize paradise! The patio and the view was amazing! There were six of us in our travel group and we all had plenty of space. Placencia is so peaceful and remote and has a unique charm. It was my first time in Belize and I am already looking to go back and would stay at the White House again. Before the trip Kirsten also provided lots of information on restaurants, tours, things to do, etc which was lovely for a first time traveler to the area. At the end of our trip a few of the people in our travel group had flight cancelations from Hurricane Harvey and Kirsten was very accommodating as we needed to extend our stay. The White House in Placencia is a must book!
Perfect location, fantastic house
The White House in Placencia is perfect for everything from relaxing on the beach to walking over to local restaurants and bars and driving inland for day trips. The house was very welcoming and the beach was stunning. There's nothing better than feeling the cool ocean breeze throughout the entire house after opening up the large glass doors to the balcony. There is plenty to do within walking distance in the village. Make sure to check out Barefoot Bar & Tipsy Tuna. We took a boat trip where snorkeled and caught fish. Our guide, Matthew, took us to a private island where he cooked up our freshly caught fish. It was delicious! All of the cafes and restaurants are delicious and all the locals are very friendly. I recommend checking out the local bowling alley, Jaguar Lanes just north in Maya Beach for any rainy days. Make sure to ask Nick for some fresh coconut water! Can't wait to come back.
