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.

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were taking a much needed vacation from our busy lives. Jammin Gecko was perfect for us. Everything about the house is incredible. We spent a lot of time by the pool relaxing and soaking up the warm air. Everyone you meet on the property is wonderful! Mabel and Javier will take care of any questions you may have. Mabel also arranged for massages at the house. Probably the best massage I have ever had. You will not go hungry here on the days you have the chef service ...Domingo and Manuel made amazing food. Thank you Jasmine and Mindy for keep every thing tidy and clean. You are a great team. We look forward to coming back next year. (Tango and Timber are definitely missing the 80 degree days!)

5 Star Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every day at the Villa Jammin Gecko. Great accommodations. Great service. Great food. Great view. Great location. There were 12 in our party -- four families -- from 8 months old to 65 -- and it worked well for all of us. Having the chef available to cook for us when arranged and to have laundry service turned out to be two perks that we appreciated very much.

Villa Jammin Gecko is a great experiance

  • 5 of 5

Villa Jammin Gecko is not only a great house, but the staff assisted us with making local flight reservations and transported us from and to the local airport. The chefs prepared fantastic meals throughout the 3 days we had their services.

The house is clean & well maintained with a beautiful beach complete with kayaks and paddle boards.

We had a great vacation and hope to return soon

We just returned from 9 days at Jammin Gecko and loved every minute! The house is in a great location, close to the Placencia Hotel and a number of good restaurants (Bistro, Mango, Bonefish). We had eight people staying there and rented a second golf cart so we could all get around. This was well worth the expense. Make sure you visit the town of Placencia (especially the Tipsy Tuna). There's also a bowling alley nearby which was a lot of fun! The pool at the hotel is fun too. We loved the "chef days" and the wonderful daily cleaning/laundry service. All in all, a great place to vacation.
