  • Is it possible to rent a car or moped for transportation around the island?

    Thanks for reaching out. So Placencia is not an island, it's actually a 16 mile long peninsula that is attached to the mainland of Belize. There are car rental agencies in and near Placencia Village, which is at the southernmost tip of the peninsula. A car is helpful if you want to explore more of Belize. You can rent golf carts in the village to get around. The rental agencies typically limit you to going about 12 miles up the peninsula on the golf carts, just to ensure that you have enough gas to to get back. Currently no one rents mopeds on the peninsula. Our property is within the village, and we do not own a car or golf cart. We walk everywhere or ride our bikes. If we need to go any significant distance up the peninsula, we take the bus, which is very affordable.

  • I am looking into diving your area next winter. I am single woman, needing a kitchen, Wi-Fi and TV. Would you consider $1500/month, inclusive of tax, for 3 months? I was in Placencia about 24 years ago. I am sure it has changed greatly!

    Our one bedroom with a full kitchen has bookings mid January through mid March. We do have availability in our studio unit for the winter. It has a kitchenette. There is a large gas bbq grill right outside the unit if you wanted to do more cooking.

  • is this approved as gold standard for entry into the country? Thanks. looking into early 2022 date.

    Yes, we are Gold Standard. While staying at a GS property for your first night is the current requirement to enter the country as a foreign tourist, it's unknown how long that requirement will stay in place.

Phil & Megan - Owners Driftwood Gardens Guesthouse

Our well maintained three story home (and our family) was featured on House Hunters International on HGTV in 2018. We've updated this traditional Belizean style home with all the modern amenities for your comfort but kept the rustic Caribbean charm. Loads of outdoor space and lush gardens give you the tropical vacation vibe. The inside of the home consists of gorgeous mixed Belizean hardwood, custom cabinetry, and local art work. Our two bedroom apartment is ideal for families or groups as it has a large fully equipped kitchen and ample living space, including two large covered balconies. Our one bedroom apartment with a pull-out sofa is great for couples traveling a child and has the benefit of a large screened patio for extra relaxing space. Our studio apartment is perfect for couples or single travelers with a covered patio and dining table. A year round pool surrounded by a sundeck, loungers, and gas BBQ grill area is just a 10 second walk from all units. We live on the top floor of the house and we are always available to answer questions, make recommendations, or assist in any way possible to make your vacation relaxing and enjoyable.

We moved to Belize in 2017 from New Jersey to enjoy year-round sun, sea, and warm weather. After years of research and reconnaissance, working multiple jobs and saving as much as possible, we finally dropped our old life, quit those jobs, and moved to Belize. We chose Placencia as our paradise, and bought this guesthouse within weeks of arriving. Since then we have enjoyed adapting to the “Barefoot Perfect” lifestyle of the village. We love living in this warm community full of friendly faces and being within walking distance of everywhere we need to go. Phil’s passion is health and fitness and he appreciates being active outdoors year-round. While enjoying all the perks that Belize offers, he has not totally abandoned his prior career path and still works remotely as a physical therapist. Megan dabbles in real estate, indulges her creative side by writing a blog (Real Life Recess) and crafting, and is a superb source of information on expat life, village happenings, and unique experiences. Mitch is enrolled in a local school where in addition learning the typical reading, writing, and arithmetic, he’s also being exposed to gardening, agriculture, and animal husbandry.

Placencia Village is known as a tourist beach destination, but it's also a real authentic working village full of friendly, welcoming people. The village is totally walkable from Driftwood Gardens. We have an ideal and convenient location towards the top of the village. We are right next door to Captain Jaks, a full service tour operator and golf cart rental agency. Sun and Sand grocery store is a 30 second walk across the street where you can buy all of your essentials. Brewed Awakenings, with their great coffee and famous seaweed shakes is just a 2 minute walk down the main road. The Famous Placencia Sidewalk, Caribbean Sea, and best beach bars, including Tipsy Tuna and Barefoot are less than a 5 minute walk away.
