Placencia Village house description

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.

Construction of the home will be complete in April of 2014. We will begin taking reservations June 1, 2014. Rates will be significantly discounted during the 1st 3 months of bookings. The home will be 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 two Gecko properties VRBO #'s 286157 and 376656. Home can sleep up to 24 when combined with listing 286157 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 outdoor shower 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.
Home is decorated with local art, fully furnished and outfitted with all brand new EVERYTHING.
Custom high end construction and finish out, all high end natural stone flooring throughout with no carpet in home.
