  • EPIC Vacation at the SPECTACULAR Typsy Gecko!!

    "I wanted a special location to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and Typsy Gecko exceeded my expectations and "WOW'ed" my husband. The owner was SO helpful, very responsive with information and answering all of my questions. She even helped me plan special events for my husband. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so kind and Javier picked us up in an air conditioned, comfy van. When we entered the house, it takes your breath away. The pictures are beautiful but like the old saying goes "it doesn't do it justice". Every room was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and complete with everything you would need - and more! Mable had prepared a delicious punch and a beautiful flower arrangement. Step outside into absolute paradise! The patio, the pool, the beach, the pier.....I can go on and on. Everything was pristine clean and as you try to take everything in, you're already figuring how many days you get to soak it all in before having to go home. Within minutes of arriving, we were in the pool, drinking punch and didn't have to do anything but start relaxing. I can't say enough about the staff - Javier, Mabel, Domingo, Mickey, the groundskeeper, housekeeper, pool guy - everyone so warm and friendly and GENUINELY want to ensure you are having a good time. Mabel and Domingo helped me plan the most memorable night for my husband with a candlelight dinner on the pier that was like a scene in a romantic movie - indescribable! My husband said he will never forget that night. Mabel was so helpful in helping us with the tours that were perfect for what we were wanting. We did 2 snorkeling tours with Splash - one to Silk Caye and the other to Laughing Bird Caye. Silk Caye has amazing snorkeling - we saw too many things to write in this review and capped the day off by swimming with the nurse sharks, sting rays and sea turtles. Laughing Bird Caye was a prettier Caye but didn't have as much sea life as Silk Caye - at least the day we were there. The meals prepared by Domingo and Mickey were delicious, plentiful, beautifully presented and ooohhhh the deserts! They were so accommodating as to what time we wanted to the meals. Domingo even did our grocery shopping for us! The pier is a perfect place to relax, read, sleep - Chillax! The paddle boards and kayaks were fun to use and explore the area. The golf cart was a perfect mode of transportation - no need to rent a car. We can't wait to return - this place is amazing!!!"

  • A Peaceful Oasis

    ""We" are two couples who shared a cabana suite for nearly a week. The Maine Stay was perfect in every way especially the location. We felt as though we were away from the world but really had easy access to restaurants, town (we did have a car) and all the Belizian adventures one could want. We enjoyed our Monkey River Creole tour (Nite Wind tours) and our Cockscomb adventure with Doyle Gardiner. Although we could have cooked, we opted for dinners out after enjoying watching the sunset over the lagoon. Dawn's in town and the Bistro up the street were two favorites. The Green Parrot serves a delicious breakfast. But after our adventures, we could return to the calm and beauty of The Maine Stay to enjoy that beautiful property -.swimming, kayaking or simply relaxing in the wonderful ocean breezes. We hope to return."

  • Our stay at the blue house

    "We had a great time and the house was everything we expected. Joe made things very easy and hassle free. It was a close walk to everywhere we had to go and the nieghbourhood was friendly. We enjoyed peaceful mornings reading and listening to music on the lagoon it was a short walk to the beach to spend the afternoons and great restaurants near by for diner when we chose to eat out. A amazing experience"

  • More than we expected

    "I have to say that our hosts are very gracious. Jim picked us up at the airport and then showed us around town before taking us to our place. When we walked into our waterfront studio we were stunned. It was beautiful and very spacious. Our hosts further provided a cell phone with numbers already on the phone. They also provided the transportation upon leaving to the airport. This was more than generous of them to take the time with this. The studio has a full kitchen, with living room area available. Laundry facilities right on site in fact just out your door. The bed and bedding are clean and comfortable. There is a queen bed, one single and a double futon. You will have a private deck or you can sit out on the pier and lounge or swim. They provide beach towels, kayaks, bicycles, and it has a safe for your valuables. While we were there the birds were nesting and we had their music to wake up to with baby birds leaving their nests. ( A little noisy but we enjoyed) It is only minutes to downtown but I would suggest that you get a cart if you are going to go to town often especially if it is during the day (between 9 am and 5pm) It is very hot. We walked (which is not far or hard) but if you do that make sure to do it early or later in the afternoon when the sun is going down. And take your water.... The views from the deck or pier are of the canal and mangroves it is a beautiful setting to just enjoy. We actually only went to town if needed for groceries, eating out, or on a trip. We spent a couple of days just lounging on the pier. Truly restful. The sunsets are spectacular. We were there during Easter weekend and thankfully this property is not located in the downtown area, so downtown noise does not disturb your peace. Make sure to have your bug spray because early morning or at dusk the no see ums and the mosquitoes come out. But to be truthful we did not suffer from them too much. It was about 20 minute walk to Yoli's where we caught DaytripperDan for the catamaran snorkeling trip. About 10 minute walk to the M&M gas station to catch Barebones Monkey River trip with Percy And we were picked up and dropped off at our personal pier by Mark from Cayequest for a snorkeling trip to Pumpkin Caye How could it get any better than that. Trust me when I say this was a gem of a place and I truly appreciate the care our hosts took in our welfare. I hope to go back again. Thank you Jim and Cindy for a fabulous vacation...."
