Gecko Vacation Rentals
About Gecko Vacation Rentals
Property designed, built and managed by Texas couple that have been visiting and building in Placencia since 2001. On site staff are a very friendly young 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.
Gecko Vacation Rentals purchased this House in 2016
Why Gecko Vacation Rentals chose Maya Beach
Laguna 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.

Perfect for our needs
This is an absolutely beautiful home at a beautiful location! It fit the needs of our family perfectly as far as bedrooms and eating area. The fact that the house has its own pool was a tremendous hit especially with our five grandchildren. The kayaks were also very popular. The chef who came prepared absolutely fabulous meals that everyone raved about. In fact they were so good that we hired him for an extra dinner! We enjoyed eating our breakfast and lunch on the patio which had a large enough table to accommodate all of us and provided a beautiful view. The housekeeper was also very helpful and kept everything neat and tidy as well as taking care of our dishes and doing our laundry. We all enjoyed our short jaunts in the golf cart as well. Renting this house also enabled us to use the huge pool at the casino and that was popular with the kids because it had a shallower children’s area. The people we were in contact with about the house were exceptionally helpful and always answered in a very timely manner anytime we had a question. We have vacationed in many many places but all of us agreed that this was the nicest vacation place of all. Should you rent this house I think you will agree.
My family and I enjoyed the property and all of it’s amenities including the chef, housekeeper, pool, lagoon, and beautiful sunsets. Our kids enjoyed their own spaces but also time with family. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful!
Great location, amazing house...terrific staff.... will definitely be back!! The chefs made delicious meals...better than going out! Highly recommend this property!
The most amazing and relaxing vacation! Fabulously comfortable & well-appointed home! UnBelizeable!!
THANK YOU for your help & patience to Talia & Mabel but especially to Namir. Our holiday was a getaway for 6 lifelong friends celebrating our 50th bdays which would not have been the same without your guidance & attention to detail. Namir even worked with a friend back home to coordinate surprise bday cupcakes! A trip of a lifetime & every time I asked questions for the group you were all extremely responsible & always had the answers. The assistance with every single recommendation & booking was perfect & extremely helpful also comforting because booking excursions were all done on-line or on WhatsApp. Several of us are already talking about a return trip to Placencia & staying at either Laguna Gecko or another fabulous Gecko Vacations homes. Every single person we met during the trip was lovely, friendly, helpful, looked you in the eye & always had a warm smile for you. Laguna Gecko A lovely Belizean rum punch greeted us upon arrival! This spacious, beautifully appointed comfortable home with everything you'll need. There were 6 of us for four days & 4 of us for the remaining time. More than enough room & certainly can accommodate more people comfortably. The beds & linens were lovely, bathrooms were gorgeous & tons of towels. The outdoor shower was my favorite! The kitchen has everything you'll need for cooking. It’s set up for entertaining & since the chefs are often there cooking it has most everything like spices, coffee filters, oils, tinfoil, some condiments, etc. The home was 25mis to village; 10 mins Maya Beach Bistro area; 10min walk/5min cart ride to the Placencia Resort. Laguna was best of both worlds staying on the lagoon with the Maya mtn view & walkable to the ocean. Transfers ran like clock-work, extremely comfortable. Provisions via the sample list was provided was perfect. We picked up liquor/wine in BZE duty-free. Chefs One word is amazing! Fresh, delicious, thoughtfully planned & locally sourced. Daily services in the home were always spotlessly cleaned & laundered. Martha washed anything we needed which was an amazing surprise. Location & safety we never felt uncomfortable or vulnerable. Additional: Cash is king; fly from BZE don’t drive; Naia Spa, Nautical Adventure, Captain Jak’s all wonderful! Maya Beach Bistro was favorite also hit Mare, Afrotide, Barefoot, Tipsy Tuna, Pickled Parrot, Cozy Corner, Bonefish, Above Grounds, resort Sunday BBQ. We LOVED Placencia, Laguna Gecko & everyone we met. Can't wait to return!!!
