We stayed in this villa last week with 2 other couples, it was a fantastic experience. Jim and Maria make this place feel like home. They were patient and kind with our group. Food was amazing, house was immaculate. I've never been so relaxed in my life! The little inlet is perfect for kayaking and paddling around, there is quick access to the village via kayak as well. This place would be perfect for a family or couples or singles. I have zero complaints. Food was amazing, setting was perfect. Would love to come back!!!

The house was very clean and well kept. Jim and Maria did a fantastic job, and helped take our trip to the next level. The description of the house was very accurate. The downtown area is full of wonderful restaurants and bars. Snorkeling at Silk Caye is a experience that we will never forget. I would highly recommend this property to anyone able to go. I would definitely request Jim and Maria in the future if we are lucky enough to go back to a Gecko Property!

Gorgeous Villa on private Island

Our group of 4 couples spent a glorious week at Island Time. We were only the second guests to stay there and the Villa was immaculate with fresh flowers and stocked with supplies we had ordered upon arrival. Getting There: The concierges, Mabel and Karla, prearranged our puddle jumper with Maya Air from Belize City to Placencia. The Gecko Shuttle Van picks you up at the airport for a short ride to a dock where you are met by Chef (and do everything guy) Jim. We had a difficult time understanding exactly where our home was but once you arrive it all becomes clear. The private island is small with just 4 houses. We all brought exercise clothes for walks but there isn't really anywhere to go so those stayed in the suitcase! There is a canal cut through this island which I think is called Placencia Caye so you have canal views as well as amazing views of the Caribbean and Placencia Village across the way. Each day there are different sailboats anchored just offshore. Arrival: Jim's wife Maria greeted us with damp towels, rum punch and chips and salsa to enjoy as we toured the home. Upstairs is the kitchen and living space as well as the master and the second pool. Master has a king, amazing bath, and outdoor shower and bathtub as well. The other 3 bedrooms(en suite baths) are queens and are all downstairs with the bar (with ice machine) and pool table. Beds were comfy, linens very nice. The larger pool is downstairs with umbrellas, 4 lounge chairs, a sectional outdoor sofa, 2 pool floats, and 2 kayaks. Caretakers: Jimmy and Maria made our trip. They live in a detached apartment amazing meals (we had ceviche every day) and even cooked up the fish the guys caught. They are there to satisfy your every whim. If you want to go to town (which we did every day) just let them know and they will drop everything to take you. They do daily housekeeping and Maria even did our personal laundry. Excursions; Guys went fishing. We all did a private snorkel tour to the Silk Cayes where we swam with nurse sharks, turtles, and eagle rays...both were booked with Ocean Motion tours (ask for Sonny and Evan). In Town: Rum Fish, Secret Garden, Tipsy Tuna, Chachis, Barefoot, De'tatch, The Shack One thing to note is that mobility issues could be a problem as if the tide was low you had to climb up and out of the boat...not an issue for us but something to be aware of. Amazing experience! Tell Jimmy "Lets go to the bar"!

Wonderful stay at Island Time Gecko!

We had a wonderful stay here!! The staff who helped us organize and plan the trip was phenomenal. The staff on site, Jim and Maria, were amazing and attentive. They helped us out with anything we needed and truly made our trip a great time! The house was beautiful and more than we could’ve imagined. I am so pleased with my trip and hope to go back again soon!!

Inaugural vacationers in this home!

This is by far the best vacation (all around) that my family has ever been on! The house itself is spectacular! The accommodations were breath-taking. This house has 4 bedrooms all with their own attached bathroom, so in essence, every room is a master suite! All around windows allowed for us to take full advantage of the beautiful view as the house is located on its own private island. Upon walking out the door, we were mere steps from the Caribbean Sea. Our location allowed for us to snorkel, canoe, paddle-board, and explore literally right outside our back door. Our house staff, Jim and Maria, were amazing too! In fact, it was their care-taking of our group that made an already amazing vacation even better! The two of them did more than just cook and clean for us; Jim and Maria made sure our every need was met! Jim would maintain the house, take us to and from the main island/town (a 5 minute boat ride) at anytime we wanted, arranged/coordinated our excursions, and whatever else was needed. Maria even did our personal laundry so that we went home with all clean clothes! Their care and kindness made for an enjoyable and completely stress- free atmosphere. Overall, the house, the help, and the destination were a perfect combination to allow our family a fun-filled, relaxing vacation for all. This Island really does have something for everyone! The beautiful surroundings and relaxed atmosphere naturally encouraged our family to disconnect from our fast-paced, digital world (although wifi was included!); instead, we played board games, enjoyed the outdoors together (the pools, the beach, and exploring) and conversing around the dinner table to our meals of choice prepared by Jim and Maria for quite possibly the best family vacation ever! We loved this trip so much, we have literally already booked for next year!
