Nice appartment, with fantastic installations (pool, swings, kayak and paddle board), and located in a quite area. Nicole did everything to make our stay as great as possible. We had a lovely stay, and would recommend without a doubt to stay at Nicole's house.

Nicole was a great host. She was very helpful and sweet. The place is a perfect location for local shops and restaurants. Centrally located to activities in the area. We were sad to leave cause we loved it so much!!

Having traveled the Caribbean extensively, I can say that this was the best place I have ever stayed, including 5 star resorts. Nicole is more than accommodating to her guests and makes them feel truly at home. Her knowledge of Placencia aids greatly in getting around and acclimated. Thank you for letting me share your piece of Heaven!

Nicole's place is one sweet and beautiful place. I couldn't have asked for a better spot to land. I loved taking my coffee out on the deck early each morning and watching the various birds. It was quiet, peaceful and simply beautiful. Whenever I needed something, Nicole was quick to reply and help. It's a jewel of a place in Placencia. By the way, I do believe that this area has the prettiest beaches in all of Belize!

This place is the most peaceful place I've ever visited. Surrounded by water...walking distance to shops and bars. The unit itself had everything we needed to make food, enjoy the lagoon and relax. Nicole has plenty of bikes and a 2 person kayak right on property.

Dolce Cabana is a wonderful place to stay. Quiet, yet a short, easy walk to all that Placencia has to offer. Nicole is very friendly and accommodating. We made good use of the kitchen, the patio, and the kayak. Bathroom facilities are clean and well maintained. Hot shower felt great after sweating, or swimming in salt water. Will highly recommend to anyone.

Great place to stay! A nice secluded neighborhood but within walking distance to town and all the activities. It's a very quiet town and it pretty much shuts down after 10 p.m. so if you are looking for an all night party, this place is probably not for you. The food choices in town were good and the Maya Bistro outside of town is a must. The local people were very friendly. Nicole was always available when we needed her but she gave us our private time as well. We will be going back to Belize again and we will definitely be staying at Dolce Cabana!
