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.

Talia Walton purchased this house in 2015

Why Talia Walton chose Belize

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.

Amazing...

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from spending a week at this property. The place was amazing and is exactly as described and even better then the pictures. The staff keeps the place in near perfect condition. And, if you have any issues, are quick to respond. We could have been very content staying at the house all 7 days with all it offers but we did venture out. We enjoyed an excursion with Jeff S. and Daytripper Catamarans. We also explored the nearby private waterfalls and took advantage of the agreement the have with the Placencia Hotel to spend several hours at their pool. Favorite nearby restaurants were Maya Beach Hotel and Mango's. Placencia is the perfect low key vacation destination. We hope to visit again soon!

20th Anniversary and Renewal Vows

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to renew our wedding vows in Belize for our 20th anniversary. We rented both the Jammin Gecko and Groovy Gecko homes in order to accommodate 15 in our group (initially there was 19 but we had a few cancel at the last minute.) In the eight days we spent in Belize we managed to visit the beautiful waterfall that was close to the house (I am so glad we experienced this during the slow season because we felt like we were the first and only ones ever there), we took a private snorkel trip to Silk Caye on a beautiful yacht to snorkel the 2nd largest barrier reef and swim with the sharks, sea turtles, and sting rays, we gambled at the Placencia casino (won a little but lost a little more!) We visited a few of the area resorts and restaurants, we went paddle boarding and kayaking, our men were picked up at the pier directly behind the home for a private deep sea fishing trip (a couple of them were able to jump in and swim with the dolphins) while us girls were pampered with a private massages at the home. We were also able to pay Domingo for extra chef days to spoil us all week with his meals and delicious food which everyone enjoyed greatly! In all honesty, none of the meals we had at the restaurants were near as good as what we experienced with Domingo's cooking.

Our group arrived and departed on different flights and even different days but Javier was very good about shuttling us back and forth and on time. Mabel and the cleaning gals were all very kind, they were there each day at the time we requested making sure our beds were made and the homes were clean. Mabel also did a great job at setting up all of our excursions for the group.

The most important reason we were there was to celebrate my husband and I’s 20th anniversary and renewed our wedding vow’s. We decided to have the ceremony out on the pier right at sunset which turned out absolutely beautiful. It was such a beautiful ceremony and I felt so blessed to have so many of our friends there to share in this experience. Mabel was very helpful in creating the flowers for the pier and the table centerpieces, she also assisted us with setting up a DJ and a wedding style cake. Unfortunately Domingo did not make this cake which was a little disappointing because his cakes were WAY better tasting, but we didn't complain. The DJ was also a huge success and everyone seemed to enjoy the dancing. I would not only recommend this place but I would come back again.

SIMPLY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Our 7 day stay could not have been any better! Maribel and Chef Micky were extremely accommodating to our many needs! The staff was incredible, they kept the house immaculate while the 9 of us did our best to make a mess! This house is as beautiful as it appears in the pictures! Our group of nine never felt crowded, as there is more than enough room. The pool was amazing as well as the game room/bar right off the pool! Bring your iPod, it was so nice having a stereo system that not only played to speakers outside but could be heard throughout the house as well!

The use of the golf cart was really convenient! We made many trips to the grocery store for more rum and beer and being able to just hop on the cart was great!

Part of the group did make a trip the Placencia Hotel to spend time at the swim up bar, they said the drinks were fantastic as well as the bartender and that you must try the restaurant's appetizer french fries, as they were fantastic!

Our favorite meals were the ones created by Chef Micky, but for those nights we did not have a chef we tried the Mayan Bistro just down the road. The food was phenomenal as were the prices! The food was upscale and the atmosphere was island perfect!

I would recommend the Jammin Gecko to anyone, it was simply amazing!
