Luxury Island Developers

With the success of several beachfront vacation rental villas, we turned our passion and expertise for high-end home construction to island development and completed our first luxury private island in 2016. We used what we’ve learnt from managing vacation homes and created a professional vacation island rental operation that continues to raise the bar and create new standards for 5-Star luxury island & villa construction and operation management. This is evident by the well above market high occupancy rate and consistent high rated guest reviews that our unique private islands and numerous oceanfront villas are known for in Belize.

We have built and currently manage three unique and exclusive private islands off the coast of Placencia, Belize, with a fourth island under construction to be completed in Summer 2019.

  • Little Harvest Caye - a five villa private island less than one mile from the center of Placencia Village

  • Gladden Private Island - an amazing, ultra private, ultra high-end, all inclusive island resort just a mile off the Belize Barrier reef along Gladden Split 

  • The Enclave - the company’s latest exclusive, seven villa island just a couple hundred feet off the Placencia pier which just opened in June of 2018

  • Kanu Private Island - coming soon!

Gladden Caye Private Island was featured on the cover of the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller Magazine as well as the cover of Private Island Magazine, which boasted Gladden as the most private luxury island in the world.


Our islands have been featured in various online and print publications including:


VRBO Reviews:

The family and friends get together was great and even made better by our islands private surroundings and the helpful staff. The staff prepared delicious meals which often included local lobsters, prepared cocktails from the bar and gave us informative tips for fishing off the docks. Weather which had been a concern, I found that it only rained briefly on the day I left. Night time I slept with the slider door open to listen to the sounds of the ocean waves and let the cool sea breeze and fresh ocean air in. (There is A/C . I found it not necessary)

The island has many amenities such as a game room, pool, dock fishing, outdoor kayaking, outdoor games etc but it is also just a hop skip and a jump to snorkeling, Mayan ruins, cave tubing, sea fishing, spice farms, the town of Palencia and scuba diving and other tours.

I hope to return next year.

The Enclave is by far THE place to go if you want a TRUE vacation. The island is amazing, it’s all yours, the accommodations are 5-star, and the staff is at your disposal 24/7. Whatever you need, whatever you want, it’s yours. If you’re looking to “find your beach”, look no further. And don’t forget the AMAZING excursions!

A warm welcome and fresh cold towels awaited us as we arrived on the island. Beautiful, pristine landscape surrounding each villa. Was hard to choose which villa to stay in as they all offered top notch bedding, furniture, large showers, bathrooms, stunning views. I was so impressed with all there was to do Kayaks, pool, volleyball, horseshoes, corn hole, biking, swimming, lounging, ping pong! You didn’t have to leave! Chef prepared meals, cocktails, great music. Our own paradise! Great family vacation. I will be back to the Enclave, Placencia Caye.

We arrived with friends and family and were immediately welcomed by the amazing staff of the Enclave resort island. Over the next week we basked in the luxury of the private estate in our own cabin with all the amenities. Each day we were served freshly cooked meals and any/all special requests were always accommodated. The island gives phenomenal proximity to the many activities beautiful Belize has to offer including scuba diving, private island tours, cave tubing, private beaches, easy access by a quick boat shuttle to the friendly town of Placencia and many other things! If you are looking for that unique vacation experience in an environment that caters to your every whim, then the Enclave on Placencia Caye is for you!!!

We stayed in the pelican and loved every minute, especially waking up to the ocean views! The staff was accommodating, attentive and friendly. The lodgings and common areas were beautiful and well maintained. Placencia is paradise and The Enclave is the throne room! We can’t wait to return.
