Placencia Village house description

Villa Tipsy Gecko is a magnificent large very open two story private waterfront beach house located directly on the Caribbean Sea in Placencia, Belize. Outstanding features radiate luxury and beauty throughout this exquisite 4+ Bedroom, 4.5 Bath residence. (Private study with pull out sofa bed can be used as 5th bedroom for large groups)

Construction of the home was completed in late 2008. Home is meticulously maintained by full time onsite staff and very active owners that continue to invest in property and make improvements like the just finished (November 2012) private pool on beach and large covered ocean pier with bar (pier is shared with home next door).

The main home is two stories consisting of over 4,000 sq ft of living area and covered patios directly over looking a private beach, private covered ocean pier (pier shared with home next door). A great view over the lagoon and the Mayan Mountains can also be had from upstairs living area and from the street side covered deck located on the front side of home.

Upstairs in the home you will find two master bedrooms suites each directly over looking the ocean that provide breathtaking views. Each master suite includes a large private bathroom, balcony and huge walk in showers. A large living area and full size walk around bar, complete with 50' flat screen TV and private covered balcony are located between the two master bedrooms making an ideal setting for two couples to use the home at the same time. A private office, which can also be used as a bedroom, is also located upstairs.

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

Cook dinner on the large outside gas grill and enjoy a local drink while relaxing under the fans on the large covered patio steps from the ocean. After dinner enjoy a quiet private walk on the beach with no one around or retire upstairs to enjoy a drink at the large full walk around bar, complete with 50' flat screen TV, or sit on the adjacent large covered 2nd floor balcony.

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.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: Property owned by familiy from Texas that built home and use it frequently. Home was designed with two master suites upstairs, a full large walk around bar and entertainment area and covered outside balcony. Specifically designed so two or more families with kids can spread out and enjoy their stay in a private beach setting and enjoy all Belize has to offer. On site staff are a very friendly young Mayan couple that speak great english and make you feel at home. They are extremely trust worthy and guest can arrange for wife to baby sit, if they want to leave smaller children to go diving or enjoy a great meal out.

          Why the Owner Chose Placencia Village:
          Home 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. While the continued improvements at the home like the large covered ocean pier and just finished pool on beach make leaving the home hard to do, PLACENCIA OFFERS THE WHOLE BELIZE EXPERIENCE!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Large private home and beach can comfortable accommodate up to four couples. Was designed to accommodate two large families with children. With two large master bedroom suites upstairs other two bedrooms both with private baths on first floor. Daily maid service, and guest clothes laundry service provided with rental. ONLY VACATION RENTAL THAT I AM AWARE OF IN PLACENCIA THAT OFFERS ALL OF THE FOLLOWING - 4+ BEDROOMS ALL WITH PRIVATE LARGE BATHS, ONSITE STAFF, PRIVATE POOL, PRIVATE OCEAN PIER, CENTRAL A/C, PRIVATE BEACH, GOLF CART INCLUDED WITH RENTAL!
