Modern Waterfront Home — Casa B’alam

ReMax VIP is thrilled to share this new listing of a luxurious, modern waterfront home in Vista Cove, Placencia. Located on the corner of the Placencia Lagoon and Vista Cove Canal, with over 200 feet of water-frontage, there is no shortage of water access on this beautiful property.

With 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and boasting 5,624 square feet with spacious open-concept rooms, floor to ceiling windows equipped with black-out curtains, and air-conditioning throughout the house. This beautiful modern waterfront home is the perfect venue for hosting and entertaining, or a great investment opportunity to make money on short term rentals.

This property is fully fenced, and comes equipped with a double car port, as well as a spacious yard with edible landscaping including mango, lime, orange, plum, banana, mulberry, avocado, apple and coconut trees. In the yard, you will find a considerable 40 foot pool surrounded by a beautiful deck and dining area, leading out to small waterfront dock (with a custom teak-interior boat available for purchase), a gravel-surrounded fire pit and seating area, and an exquisitely crafted pizza oven and picnic area.

Entering the open-concept dining room, kitchen, and living room you will see a gorgeous hand-carved, custom dining table with a graceful orchid chandelier suspended above; the kitchen adorned with pristine hardwood cabinetry, elegant wooden light fixtures, immaculate stainless-steel appliances, and a beautiful kitchen island comprised of a of both wood and stone; then a living room with bespoke local furniture, plush alpaca wool rugs, and a 65 inch TV with Sonos sound system.

In the 2 first floor bedrooms you will find ornate light fixtures, gorgeous bed-frames of Belizean hard-wood, a small but well-equipped bathroom, and elegant decorations embellishing the walls and room as a whole.

Continuing up the stairs, you will find a comfortable sitting area with couches and chairs, surrounded by windows, offering a beautiful vista of the water and area below.

Located on the second floor are the 2 master bedrooms, each equipped with floor to ceiling sliding doors leading out to a large terrace and providing a fantastic view of the lagoon, Maya Mountains, and the sun setting upon them. The master bedrooms incorporate ornate glass light fixtures, an elegant wooden bed-frame, and beautiful light-wooden bedroom cabinetry. Both master bedrooms contain beautiful, spacious en-suite bathrooms with luxurious counter tops and fixtures.

Continuing upwards, a outdoor stairway from the second floor gives access to the expansive rooftop deck, equipped with a covered lounge and dining area as well as an elegant white-wooden bar, and providing unparalleled views of the lagoon, mountains, surrounding area, and the whole of the peninsula from above.


Located in Vista Cove, this property is perfectly positioned just a short walk north of the Placencia Airstrip, and less than a 15 minute boat ride out to the Caribbean Sea.

Just 2.5 miles south of Vista Cove is Placencia; the second largest tourist destination in all of Belize. Known for its stunning white-sandy beaches, and beautiful turquoise-blue waters, Placencia provides the quintessential Caribbean experience to swaths of visitors from all over the world.

Downtown Placencia village is home to a multitude of amazing restaurants and bars, serving all sorts of drinks including tropical drinks, classic cocktails, and locally brewed beer; along with different cuisines including local Belizean classics like fry jacks or stew beans and rice, international classics like pizza or burgers, as well as seafood fresh from the Caribbean, ensuring there is a delicious meal available for everyone.

About 6 miles north of Vista Cove is the small beachfront village Maya Beach. Maya Beach is much quieter than the Placencia Village and is home to most of the expats on the peninsula. Despite its small size, it is home to many great restaurants serving delicious food and drinks beach-side from morning until night.
