The space

Welcome to Winter´s Avalon in Maya Beach!

Step onto the quiet lagoon-side property in Maya Beach with lots trees and wildlife such as iguanas, birds, agoutis, etc.

The beach is just two minutes away and also very close to great restaurants and bars, and a supermarket!

The single family home is very spacious and comprises of 2 bedrooms (sleeps 3) and 1 bathroom. The main bedroom is very large and offers not just a queen-size bed but also a comfortable sofa. Around this bedroom you have an enormous space which serves as kitchen, dining and living room. The area is screened in and airy and you think you´d live in the treetops and can reach out to pick the Mangos. The 2nd bedroom is small and separate from the main bedroom and sleeps 1, perfect for a kids bedroom. Upstairs you find the stunning watch tower. Have a drink and see the sunset over the Maya Mountains and the Placencia Lagoon.
The style of the house is rustic and simple but offers everything you need. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge/freezer combo, stove and oven, pots and pants.

Spend also some time on the amazing dock. Great for fishing or just relaxation.

The property has some of the oldest and largest Mangroves, Mango trees, orchids and palm trees.

A/C? Not needed – the house is so airy and you will love the wind coming from the ocean. TV? No, but who needs it when you are in such a great environment, go outside, read a book or have a chat.
Don´t panic, Wifi is available.

3 bikes are available free of charge and there is also 1 kayak and 1 stand-up paddle boat for you to use as well as 2 snorkel sets.

Herb was a delight to work with and went above and beyond our expectations in terms of communication and helpfulness. We had a great time relaxing in the hammocks, exploring the lagoon and beach, and biking to town--what a beautiful place. I'm so happy we stayed here!

Herb and Simone are wonderful hosts, and the home is just as beautiful as pictured and described. We enjoyed spending time in each of the spaces, particularly the upper screened deck overlooking trees and the lagoon, catching every breeze. We had everything we needed from beach towels to a coffee grinder, and Herb was great to communicate with at each step. We were pleased with everything about this home and would definitely recommend it to others.

I've probably stayed in 25-30 AirBnB locations around the world. This was hands down the best one. Highly recommend!

I had a 5-star experience for 5 weeks at Winter's Avalon! In the last 5 months I traveled all over the world, stayed at 25 different places, and this tropical stay was the most exciting and unique! My young adult kids joined me for the first week, there was plenty of space, and we all had a blast here. If you love nature, you will adore staying here... it is a little piece of paradise. I looked all around beautiful Maya Beach and Placencia Village, and could not imagine having a better time, even at a 5-star fancy hotel! That's the whole point... If you love the rustic, the outdoors, feeling as if you are living in a treehouse and yet with the comforts and ease a home brings, you will thank your lucky stars to have the opportunity to stay here. But if you're not a nature fan, perhaps you won't be as happy here. You have to giggle at the cute little geckos that get in the house every so often. If that would make you uncomfortable this may not be the best choice. The whole place is screened in so you get great ventilation and a constant outdoors feel. The bird sounds are always entertaining. My favorite part of this stay was the constant access to a kayak! You are a few steps to the canal that takes you to a huge lagoon to explore the fish, the birds, all kinds of beautiful creatures. I loved the day I happened upon a manatee! I also used the bike a lot, so I was able to get around and enjoy good exercise that way too, every day. And to be only minutes walking distance from the Caribbean, to boot! Herb was wonderful! A very kind man who goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. He stays in great communication while respecting your privacy. I will never forget my stay at Winter's Avalon and am truly happy for anyone else who gets the chance to experience a stay here, as well.

Herbert and Simone were super friendly and helpful, and the treehouse was fantastic. Beautiful place that left nothing to be desired. We cooked, slept well, spent lots of time on the terrace watching sunsets, and we appreciated access to the bike, kayak, and paddleboard. We even saw manatees on our last day out on the lagoon! We really enjoyed our stay - it made Maya Beach very enjoyable.

I am marine biologist and love nature. Originally from Austria we traveled a lot and lived in different countries but somehow Belize doesn't let us go :-)

We, my wife and I, live on the property of Simberts Apartments with our two cats. We love diving, dining out and a cold beer on our dock overlooking the beautiful canal just steps away from the Placencia lagoon.

We are easy going people, well educated and love to discuss various topics. Have as much or little interaction with us, everything is fine and up to you.

We also manage Winter´s Avalon which is our neighbor property and we will meet and greet guests of this property as well.
