Blue Garden House

A traditional Caribbean cottage, Blue Garden House is built from wood and sits on a pleasant marina surrounded by a lush garden of fruit trees and flowers, with its own private dock. You can paddle your kayak right from the house into the mangrove lagoon, where manatees and other marine life live. From its two balconies overlooking the water, you can enjoy spectacular sunsets and warm tropical breezes. A classic Caribbean experience!

Right on the water

along a quiet marina, Blue Garden House offers the best of both worlds - your own tropical retreat where brilliant sunsets cast golden light through windows all around the house and capture the sea breeze no matter which way it blows. At the same time, you are just five minutes walk away from the beautiful ocean and white sand beach of Placencia.

Blue Garden House captures the essence of Caribbean-style tropical living with a large living room and kitchen area, two spacious verandas overlooking the water and modern comforts.

Blue Garden House

is located on the blue waters of Placencia lagoon within easy walking distance to Placencia Village and its attractions - restaurants, shops, cafes, and beach bars. The famous Placencia beach, with its mile long stretch of white sand where you can lounge under a coconut tree or go for a long swim in the warm Caribbean sea, is only five minutes' walk away. It offers the perfect combination of secluded privacy and easy access to the busy beach front.

Built in traditional Caribbean style and designed by renowned eco-architect Hitesh Mehta (whose award winning projects include some of the top ecolodges in the world), Blue Garden House is made from hardwoods and sits on a quiet marina surrounded by a lush garden of fruit trees and flowers, with its own private dock. From its two balconies overlooking the water, you can see spectacular sunsets across Placencia Lagoon and the jungle covered Maya Mountains in the distance.
