Private Island of Little Harvest Caye
Your personal island paradise is waiting for you at Little Harvest Caye- a staffed 1.5 acre island with 5 private bedroom suites and 6 baths.
Only your group and the onsite staff, who have separate detached housing, will be on the island during your stay. This uniquely designed compound home includes 5 private suites specifically laid out to take advantage of the amazing sea and mountain views and the cool trade winds right off the Placencia Peninsula in Southern Belize.
The massive open air main living area, kitchen, and bar is covered by soaring custom thatch roof and elegant woodwork. This area has a large, full walk around bar, eat in kitchen and private study. The living area overlooks the pool and sandy white beach, complete with amazing views of the Maya Mountains. The large freshwater pool area has a tanning ledge, covered seating area/bar, lounging deck and pool volleyball setup.
The master bedrooms has a covered private balcony, spacious open closets, and a make-up vanity/desk. The attached bathroom has thatch ceiling, concrete counter tops with his and her sinks, a free standing tub, walk-in shower, as well as a separate outdoor shower.
The second and third bedrooms share one common wall, each with a private covered patio and ocean views. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bath that has a thatch roof, Onyx sink, concrete counter tops, and a walk-in shower.

Little Harvest Caye offers an experience like no other in Belize. We offer the service and amenities of our other private luxury homes on the mainland in the Placencia area, on your own private island, just a short 5 minute boat ride from the charming Placencia Village where you can go any time for dinner, bar hopping, shopping, or taking in the many other sites and attractions. Thus guests of LHC truly have the best of both worlds, the privacy, exclusivity, and uniqueness of being on a private island, yet all the comforts of home and the convenience and ability to take the LHC private boat to the village anytime to enjoy all that Placencia Village has to offer.
The various buildings were designed to take advantage of the consistent nice breeze coming off the water which so guests can open the windows and not have to run the AC units (which are installed in each bedroom). Water for the island is city water that comes from Placencia Village (via pipe installed under the sea) as well as rain water collection. Potable water is stored under the main living structure out of site in a series of large water storage tanks to ensure that the supply of portable water is never an issue on LHC.
The island is situated far enough off shore so sand flies are not an issue on the island's maintained beach and grounds.
Placencia itself also is an ideal location to explore all Belize has to offer. In Placencia, you have access to both land and sea tours and excursions, most less than 1 hour away. Our concierge will assist in planning and booking your activities to enable you to get the most out of your trip.
Placencia and the area around LHC is home to some of the best salt water fly fishing for bone, permit and tarpon in the world, as well as amazing snook, snapper and other fishing literally right off from LHC.
All the dive boats and fishing boats leaving out of Placencia drive right by the island every day when they are heading out and returning for the day! The LHC concierge can arrange to have guests going diving and fishing to be picked up and dropped off at the island dock.
Whether you want explore Belize to the fullest or relax by the pool, Little Harvest Caye will provide a vacation like no other.

What a place!!!
Spending a week on a private island with full staff sounds amazing and it truly was. Everything about Little Harvest Caye has been carefully considered in the construction, staffing, amenities and access. There were things like paddle boarding, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, billiards, ping pong and shell collecting to do on the island and the mainland was only a 5 minute boat ride away. The house manager Osmar was so accommodating and took great care of us. Our chefs prepared fabulous meals for breakfast lunch and dinner and made great smoothies and cocktails upon request. They also prepared our catch from fishing. If you've ever dreamed of having a private island all to yourself, you can't beat Little Harvest Caye! Roger Conner and Family”
LHC is a little piece of Paradise
Hard not to give 5 stars to your own private island. The owners did a wonderful job of creating a little paradise. Great use of the space. 360 degree views of the ocean. 5 minute board ride back to the mainland, Great staff, nothing but positive things to say about this property.”
