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 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 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.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Property owned by 2 families from Texas that have been visiting and building in Placencia since 2001.
On site staff are a very friendly young local 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 the Owner 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!
The Unique Benefits at this House: On-site staff, daily housekeeping with laundry service, security, golf cart, kayaks, bikes all included.
