About Talia Walton

Property designed, built and managed by Texas couple that have been visiting and building in Placencia since 2001.

On site staff are a very friendly young couple that speak great English and make you feel at home. They are extremely professional, trust worthy and guests can arrange for wife to baby sit, if they want to leave smaller children to go diving or enjoy a great meal out.

Why Talia Walton chose Plantation

Jammin' 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 6th home we have constructed, Jammin' Gecko will have all the amenities a family or group of friends could want in their vacation rental.

High end finish out with use of local hard woods, all natural stone flooring and attention to detail inside and out. Third floor master suite provides the ultimate in privacy and amazing views of both the ocean and the mountains. While the home has high end efficient and quite air-conditioning it was designed to open the windows and doors to take advantage of the cool ocean breeze.

Besides the fabulous residence you will be staying in, PLACENCIA OFFERS THE WHOLE BELIZE EXPERIENCE!

What makes this house unique

On-site staff, daily housekeeping with laundry service, security, chef provided (for every 2 days of rental, receive the one day of the chef - will prepare 3 meals per day), golf cart, kayaks, paddle boards and bikes are all included.

Family Reunion Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This amazingly beautiful villa became the home for our extended family of 12 - ages 14 to 67 - for one incredible week. With 5 bedrooms each with its own full bath, 2 half baths, a spacious kitchen and great room, a game room, and a poolside sitting area, we never felt crowded. And yet we always found spaces to connect. We enjoyed kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, swimming, and jumping off the dock into the ocean just a few steps beyond the pool area. The pool itself provided even more fun in the sun with a volleyball net and pool lounges. There are several bikes that the younger set enjoyed riding to the Bistro and a market about a mile away. The golf cart was the mode of transportation for the older generation. The service oriented staff at the Geckos kept our villa, pool, and grounds tidy and kindly gave help whenever we needed assistance.

We loved our chef days! The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and the kitchen was left spotless. They adjusted the menu for those in our family who have food allergies and prepared the fish we caught. Each of the three chefs were delightful to chat with. On our non-chef days, we journeyed to Placencia Village and found the local food delicious and the shops and markets accommodating.

As for activities, we enjoyed the drive from the airport through the mountainous jungle, snorkeling, ziplining, river tubing, swimming in waterfall pools, and taking a boat to Monkey River where we saw howler monkeys, manatees, and dolphins.

We found Belize to be a country with kind, friendly people and breathtaking beauty. We always felt safe and welcomed. We left a bit of our heart there and hope to return in the future.

Beautiful home for a great relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We met another family we’ve travelled with each summer to various beach destinations. This vacation ranks among the best! A huge and beautifully decorated home with plenty of room for 4 adults and 5 kids/teens. Talia, Mabel, Domingo and Manuel (the chefs) were helpful and accommodating from start to finish. The meals they prepared were all amazing! The housekeeper Jasmine was so sweet and even kept our clothes cleaned daily. I highly recommend the Jammin’ Gecko!

Super Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was my 6th year at the Gecko’s. I’ve stayed at Tipsy, Groovy and Jammin and I’ve loved staying at all three, but I keep coming back to Villa Jammin Gecko. The staff is ALWAYS wonderful and so nice. Mabel is such a great help making our outing arrangements. She and Javier are a wonderful and helpful couple. The food could not be better. Domingo and his brother plan such delicious menus. This was lobster Fest season and we had lobster for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as shrimp and chicken dishes.

The home is immaculate and so well laid out that you can enjoy being with the other guests or take some private time in the large suites. I’m getting too old to go to the master suite, so younger family members took that, but my room on he second floor is spacious and allows me to be where the kitchen and gathering space is. The only complaint from several of us is the low couches. If you’re short, they’re comfortable, but taller people don’t like them that much. If that’s the only negative we could find, you know it’s pretty near to perfect. The pool is beautiful and offers a covered space to get out of the sun. Being on the beach gave us gorgeous photos to send home.

We ate out only twice. The Bistro serves the best food in the area. Don’t miss their breakfast or brunch served daily and the cinnimon rolls are not to be missed. We called the bowling alley for 5 pizzas our first night as we were needing to unwind from our flights in.

We visited the little waterfall and everyone really enjoyed that. It’s near the house and not to be missed. You can also go from there to the zip line. Ask Mabel about this.

We had a large group and some stayed at Villa Groovy Gecko and they had rave reviews of it as well.

The pier serves all 3 houses guests and it’s a lovely place to go for being in a hammock and reading a book and watching the sun rise or set. It’s a first come, so try to make it at least once in your visit.

We had Mabel arrange massages for several of our group at the house and everyone felt like comfortable wet noodles afterwards, so they were pluses as well.

A week just didn’t feel like it was long enough. It never does. This is such a beautiful place to vacation. We are already planning for next year.

Just as amazing as always!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time back and will return again!

Chef Domingo and Manuel create amazing dishes...breakfast lunch and dinner.

The host staff (Mabel and crew) make sure the house is well cleaned daily and laundry service is delightful treat.

Mabel lined us up with a custom fishing/snorkeling excursion to Harvest Caye with Captain Wayne. They picked our crew of 12 up at the dock in front of the house and took us all two Harvest Caye where half the group stayed and snorkeled and lounged at the bar pool while the remaining crew had an AWESOME time catching bonita, mackerel, yellow jack and a bunch of barracuda! We all met back at Hatchet Key for a fresh fish fry. Incredible.

Can't wait to return!
