Overview

About the property

Home, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12) *ask about cancellation policy*

Villa Groovy Gecko is a magnificent, large, very open, two story private waterfront beach house located directly on the Caribbean Sea in Placencia, Belize. Large infinity pool on beach, with outdoor covered area.

Home is built to enjoy the ocean front breezes and fresh air. Downstairs the large open air courtyard is complete with full outdoor kitchen and bar entertainment area.

Outstanding features radiate luxury and beauty throughout this exquisite 5 Bedroom, 5.5 Bath residence.

The home is meticulously maintained by full time onsite staff and very active owners.

Our level of quality and customer service can be verified by reading the reviews on our other Gecko properties, VRBO #'s 286157 and 663419 . Home can sleep up to 36 when combined with listing 286157 and 663419 located next door on the beach.

The main home is two stories consisting of over 3,500 sq ft of living area and covered patios directly over looking a private beach and the ocean.

Upstairs in the home you will find the master bedroom with a large master bath and breathtaking views of the ocean. Upstairs also includes a second bedroom with a private bathroom, a large living room, dinning room, large well equipped open kitchen and a massive covered patio that goes across the entire back of the home overlooking the ocean.

The three remaining bedrooms are located on the first floor, each with its own private bath.

While the home is specifically designed to take advantage of the trade winds coming off the ocean the home is equipped with the latest high end solar assisted A/C systems that not only are the quietest available anywhere but also VERY energy efficient.

Cook dinner on either the large outside gas grill or the Green Egg charcoal grill and enjoy a local drink while relaxing under the fans on the large covered patios just steps from the ocean.

We are located just 1 mile south from the Placencia Hotel and 1 mile north of Maya Beach. The home is uniquely located in upscale area that provides for a very private beach setting, yet it is close to fine dining and other upscale resorts in an exclusive section of Placencia, just 10 minutes from Placencia Village and air strip.

Other features of the home include:

Privacy fence with driveway gate.

About Geriann Beck

Why Geriann Beck chose Maya Beach

Groovy Gecko is located in heart of some of the best saltwater fly fishing in the world as well as world class diving and snorkeling on the 2nd largest coral reef system in the world. The now fully paved 26 mile Placencia road makes getting on and off the peninsula by car a much more enjoyable and faster experience, thus making access to the rain forest, Mayan ruins, cave tubing and other attractions in the jungle easily accessible.

Being the 3rd home we have constructed the Groovy Gecko will have all the amenities a family or group of friends could want in their vacation rental. Besides the fabulous residence you will be staying in PLACENCIA OFFERS THE WHOLE BELIZE EXPERIENCE!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this bueatiful home for a week. We were originally supposed to be a group of 9, but ended up as a group of 6. Even if we would have had our original group there would have been more than enough room! Very spacious home!

The staff was amazing and kept the house looking immaculate. Chef Domingo and Manuel were both amazing! The food was great and the presentation was beautiful! Chef Domingo even made a birthday cake for a member of our group. Miss Mable was amazing as well, she booked our excursion and took care of any other request that we made. Last but not least, Geri was very attentive through out the whole booking process, right down to our arrival and coordinating our transportation when we arrived earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things to explain how great our vacation was thanks to these amazing folks at this amazing house! We will be returning as soon as possible.

Book here! You won't regret it!

Perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better vacation...total paradise! The houses are gorgeous, meticulously maintained, and the staff goes out of their way to ensure that every detail is perfect. All the food was terrific (wish we could have had the chef everyday!), and the care they put into setting up the wedding we were celebrating was awesome. Look forward to returning! Thank you to all the staff for a fabulous, memorable vacation!

Perfect For our Needs

  • 5 of 5

Groovy Gecko was terrific. Loved the house layout. We had a beautiful view of the ocean, and spent almost all our non-excursion time at the pool or out on a kayak. The bar on the lower level is very handy. Mabel and the staff made our trip so enjoyable, and the food was terrific. Could not have picked a better place for a large group. Thanks to Geri for all her help coordinating the pre-trip details.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were beyond impressed with the Groovy Gecko! Before our arrival, Mabel was incredibly helpful with planning excursions, coordinating travel, and answering our many questions. Geri provided an excellent list of restaurant recommendations (don’t miss out on the peanut brittle ice cream pie at the Bistro – so good!). The house is gorgeous and is meticulously maintained. We had 11 people in our group (with 4 kids) and there was plenty of room for everyone. With daily maid service - including laundry - we truly felt spoiled. We enjoyed the pool, pier, sea kayaks, golf carts, and open air kitchen. This is undoubtedly the nicest VRBO we have stayed at. We are counting down the days until we can return to the Groovy Gecko!

The accommodations were perfect for our group and the staff was awesome! Food prepared by chefs was as good as any restaurant if not better.
