    Escape to the charms of the Tiki Toucan Tropical Suite + Private Pool, a unique vacation haven for two nestled in the tranquil and leafy surroundings of north Placencia. Immerse yourself in the seamless conversation between colorful Caribbean architecture and modern design aesthetics. This vibrant and exceptionally comfortable suite offers over 1,200sq ft of indoor and outdoor relaxation space, all exclusively at your disposal. The Tiki-Modern vibe permeates every corner, creating an atmosphere that is both chic and inviting.  

    Savor unobstructed vistas of the Caribbean Sea from multiple outdoor vantage points, as the hypnotic sound of waves lapping the shore enhances the serenity of this peaceful retreat. The expansive and usually deserted beachfront - just 100 yards away - offers shallow, calm waters while a gentle, on-shore breeze keeps you cool.  

    Wave goodbye to your fellow tourists, as The Tiki Toucan Tropical Suite is the sole rental unit on the property in this small, safe and secluded community. The owners, a delightful retired British couple who reside upstairs in the blue Boat House, share a passion for Caribbean rum and all things Tiki.  

    Relax into a vacation that combines modern creature comforts with tropical tiki magic. The Tiki Toucan Tropical Suite + Private Pool awaits to make your Belizean getaway an unforgettable experience in paradise.  

    Room by Room 

    The elegantly-styled ensuite ground-floor bedroom has a king-size bed with a firm but extremely comfortable mattress, well-equipped kitchenette with sink and mini-fridge/freezer, and two wardrobes; one with full-length hanging space, one with drawers. A large picture window overlooks the tropical vegetation. The air-conditioning is effective and whisper-quiet and a top-of-the-range ceiling fan over the bed is remote controlled and silent. Directly outside the front door is a dedicated parking space suitable for a rental car or golf cart.  

    The bathroom has a generous, zero-entry walk-in shower with rainfall shower head and pebble floor, WC and granite vanity. A ceiling fan keeps the bathroom a lovely comfortable temperature.  

    A short concrete path leads to the elevated wooden pool deck. Here you will find an outdoor shower and two adjustable sun loungers with beach umbrella and large shade sail, when needed.  

    Steps lead down into your private crystal-clear saltwater pool, which is 6ft deep on one side for swimming and floating in pool chairs, and 3ft deep on the other. The shallow side is designed for socializing, with two bar stools and a generous L-shaped conversation ledge. A wide concrete surround accommodates cocktails, snacks and books.  

    The pool temperature rarely drops below 80deg F and rises to the upper 90s in summer when the sun is on the water all day. A color-changing pool light and flickering tiki torchiere make for groovy night swims.  

    Adjacent to the pool at ground level is a covered and tiled patio with a built-in table and chairs, as well as two hanging hammock chairs, perfect for reading and napping. Consider this your outdoor living and dining room. Decorative concrete breeze blocks allow the Caribbean zephyrs to waft over you.  

    After dark, step down into the sheltered, white sand Tiki Grotto, furnished with teak clamshell chairs and sea grape log side tables. At night, the surrounding palm trees and tropical foliage are dramatically illuminated to maximize the tropical vibe.  


    The Tiki Toucan Tropical Suite + Private Pool is located down a quiet, sandy cul-de-sac just off the main road, one mile north of the air strip and three miles north of Placencia village with its famously long and skinny sidewalk, picturesque shops, restaurants and bars. Seine Bight village is a mile to the north and has a large, modern grocery store and great street food.  

    The Tiki Toucan’s neighbors include a handful of private houses and The Flying Pig sports bar. The bar is open only from 5-9pm Monday to Friday and closed on the weekends.  

    Owner Patrick offers a short Mexican menu of bargain tacos, nachos, quesadillas, and burritos to a largely expat crowd and there is a host of different nightly activities: shuffleboard, darts, pool, music trivia, and karaoke (on Fridays). Full disclosure: the bar is very close to the property but is generally pretty quiet (except during karaoke!).  

    Also in walking distance is Hobbs Brew Barge, a shaded, anchored vessel, a third of a mile south on the lagoon side, which serves a nice selection of craft beer, cocktails and food throughout the day. A rental golf cart is highly recommended for fully exploring everything this vibrant peninsula has to offer.  

    Resident (but timid) wildlife includes grey foxes, coatimundis and agoutis and a splendid selection of tropical birds enjoying the lush garden. You might meet one of the two pampered community cats.
