Why Gecko Vacation Rentals chose Placencia
Little Harvest Caye is an island off the Peninsula of Placencia 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 or you can just hang on your private island with no worries.

Wonderful place to stay. Well laid out so we did not feel crowded. Lots to do and the staff was especially nice. Food was excellent. Only sad that covid19 forced us to leave early.
This was by far the best vacation we have ever taken! The staff on the island were the best! Ernesto and Miguel were our chefs for the week, the meals were unbelievable ! Jose took great care of us both on the island and off. He did a terrific job making sure everything ran smoothly and flawlessly! Osmar also helped to get us where we were going and maintained the island, again amazing! Mindy was our housekeeper and kept everything sparkling and well stocked, she did a terrific job!
We’ve never eaten so well or been pampered so much! Henry and Vicky, the two we worked with organizing the vacation made everything run so smoothly! They made our planning for excursions, meals and island entertainment so easy! We had a drumming band come to the island for entertainment, that was a great experience spending time with them. We probably could have booked them for a shorter amount of time, we did 5 hours but could have been less.
We were a group of 12 adult friends, spending a week on a beautiful, tropical, private paradise and it could not have been any better!
Amazing Experience Definitely Recommend
We had the most amazing stay with our group of friends. Belize is an amazing Country the island we stayed on was the best and the staff were even better. I can't stress enough how great the staff were, several comments a day were made on how great the attention to detail and how they always went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and meet our every need or request.
This property is absolute paradise!
This private island was the perfect place for our group of 4 families to enjoy Belize and each other but each with our own bit of privacy. The homes are immaculate, beautifully constructed and modern but with traditional flair. The common spaces are well arranged to facilitate group conversations while the kids swam, combed the beach or played on ping pong or pool tables.
The staff were unbelievably professional, friendly and accommodating. Each meal was absolutely gourmet quality with beautiful presentation by the private chef who accommodated multiple special request food preferences and allergies with ease. We only paid for groceries which was extremely reasonable especially given the very high quality of our meals - we could never have done that for ourselves! Our concierge, Henry went above and beyond on multiple occassions organizing the menu in advance, helping us book excursions and organizing our travel plans. He kept track of us from start to finish and even helped us problem solve transportation issues not booked through him.
Overall, the experience could not have been more amazing. We all felt like movie stars enjoying a private island experience! We can't wait to go back.
Was nervous but not for long.
Anytime you book something online without a personal review from someone you trust, it feels like a gamble. However, from the first contact with the in country manager, Henry, the communication and dedication to our groups happiness was spot on. Once on the island, the crew there took care of us like we were royalty. Very friendly and out going, they paid attention to every detail. Very happy with the entire process! We will be back!
LHC is minutes to center of Placencia Village which has many great spots to eat, as well as night life, gift shops, stores etc.
Free use of island boat / shuttle and driver for going to Village, etc!
Truly a unique best of both worlds with island privacy, private chef, staff and exclusivity, yet literally just minutes to village with all the comforts and features of a high end home on the mainland.
The various buildings were designed and layout on the island to take advantage of the consistent nice breeze coming off the water which so guests can open the windows and not have to run the AC units (that are installed in each bedroom).
The island's location provides an amazing view of the Maya Mountains to the west, the Placencia Lagoon to the north, Placencia to the North East and open sea views to the east and south.
The island is situated far enough off shore so sand flies are not an issue on the islands maintained beach and grounds like can be on the mainland.
