The North Beach, owned and operated by David and Deborah Vernon, is a family- run business and we give each of our guests individual attention. We wanted to build a vacation rental where groups, families or individuals could come to Placencia and feel at home. Having done miles of traveling ourselves, we know what amenities are important to our guests.
We have been in the Belizean tourism business for over 20 years. David began his guiding career leading natural history tours throughout Belize for International Expeditions. He is recognized country-wide for his guiding expertise and was awarded "Tour Guide of the Year 1999" by the Belize Tourism Board. David sits on the board of directors for the Belize Tourism Industry Assn. Placencia.
Deborah moved to Belize from California in 1991 after falling in love – with David and Belize! Married a year later, they began building (with their own hands!) their first venture together, Deb & Dave’s Last Resort – a small guesthouse in Placencia. It was a number of years later, after the birth of their daughter, that they opened Toadal Adventure Belize, a tour operation specializing in soft adventure and kayaking. Both Deb & Dave’s Last Resort and Toadal Adventure are thriving businesses today.
