Fantastic Home for Adventurous Vacation

We stayed at the Jammin Gecko for two weeks and the house was perfect for our needs. We had five couples and each bedroom had a private bath. Additional 1/2 baths are included. The service you receive at the Jammin Gecko is above and beyond anything we have experienced in past rentals. Three meals per day for three days, daily cleaning/laundry service, and concierge service. Mabel, Domingo, and George were very attentive and yet not obtrusive. I can't say enough about their fantastic service. Hanging out at the pool was a frequent activity and ideal size for our group and the grounds were impeccably kept. We felt completely safe and secure at this location and the general area was also very safe. The location is 25 minutes to downtown Placencia by car and almost all of the adventure trips were within one hour. Diving is slightly expensive but worth the extra costs, They all included lunches at a private island. Expect a 1 hour trip to most dive sites. The hiking and zip lining was fantastic and if you are in good shape and enjoy some adventure take the Antelope trail in Mayflower Nature Reserve to the top to a beautiful natural pool for a swim. My wife and I would rate this as our best trip in a long list of other places we have visited. The stay at JM was a big part of what made this trip so memorable.

Perfect vacation home

We rented this home with three other families for a Spring Break getaway. The house exceeded our expectations. Five bedrooms, each with private bath, allowed everyone their privacy. The common spaces were comfortable and perfect for socializing. There is a second floor living room plus ground floor game room so the teens could have their own space and we didn't have to hear their music! We chose to put all the kids in the upstairs master and each couple had their own bedroom. The outdoor pool with lounging area was a big hit. I strongly recommend renting a car, as the area with shops and restaurants is about 40 minutes by golf cart. I cannot say enough about the staff. They were professional, friendly, and very helpful. The housekeepers did our laundry each day. Javier and Mabel checked in on us every day to see that we had everything we needed. The chefs prepared a traditional Belizian breakfast, lunch, and dinner three days when we were there. All meals were fantastic. Submitted: Apr 9, 2017 Stayed: Mar 2017 Source: VRBO, from HomeAway

Excellent home and service

We spent 5 days at Jammin Gecko. This was a girls trip and we had 11 girls enjoy this fabulous home. From the beginning to the end of the trip we were taken care of. The house was better than expected and the food and service was excellent! Everyone in our group was very impressed. Would definitely return!

Outstanding! Terrific for family vacations!

Jamming Gecko was a vacation that all 11 of us will never forget! Mable, our concierge could not have been any more helpful; Domingo and George served delicious meals paying special attention to everyone's needs and desires from 6am til 8pm if requested. They were "our favorite restaurant". The pool, beach, and pier were beautifully maintained. Golf cart trips to the grocery store were fun. We would rent a van next time to accommodate all of us, albeit scheduled activities did provide transportation, but at a cost of $15 - 20pp round trip. This 5 bedroom, 7 bath home, and services provided by staff was way beyond our expectations!! Submitted: Jan 10, 2017 Stayed: Dec 2016 Source: VRBO, from HomeAway

Just returned from spending a week at this property. The place was amazing and is exactly as described and even better then the pictures. The staff keeps the place in near perfect condition. And, if you have any issues, are quick to respond. We could have been very content staying at the house all 7 days with all it offers but we did venture out. We enjoyed an excursion with Jeff S. and Daytripper Catamarans. We also explored the nearby private waterfalls and took advantage of the agreement the have with the Placencia Hotel to spend several hours at their pool. Favorite nearby restaurants were Maya Beach Hotel and Mango's. Placencia is the perfect low key vacation destination. We hope to visit again soon!

20th Anniversary and Renewal Vows

My husband and I decided to renew our wedding vows in Belize for our 20th anniversary. We rented both the Jammin Gecko and Groovy Gecko homes in order to accommodate 15 in our group (initially there was 19 but we had a few cancel at the last minute.) In the eight days we spent in Belize we managed to visit the beautiful waterfall that was close to the house (I am so glad we experienced this during the slow season because we felt like we were the first and only ones ever there), we took a private snorkel trip to Silk Caye on a beautiful yacht to snorkel the 2nd largest barrier reef and swim with the sharks, sea turtles, and sting rays, we gambled at the Placencia casino (won a little but lost a little more!) We visited a few of the area resorts and restaurants, we went paddle boarding and kayaking, our men were picked up at the pier directly behind the home for a private deep sea fishing trip (a couple of them were able to jump in and swim with the dolphins) while us girls were pampered with a private massages at the home. We were also able to pay Domingo for extra chef days to spoil us all week with his meals and delicious food which everyone enjoyed greatly! In all honesty, none of the meals we had at the restaurants were near as good as what we experienced with Domingo's cooking. Our group arrived and departed on different flights and even different days but Javier was very good about shuttling us back and forth and on time. Mabel and the cleaning gals were all very kind, they were there each day at the time we requested making sure our beds were made and the homes were clean. Mabel also did a great job at setting up all of our excursions for the group. The most important reason we were there was to celebrate my husband and I’s 20th anniversary and renewed our wedding vow’s. We decided to have the ceremony out on the pier right at sunset which turned out absolutely beautiful. It was such a beautiful ceremony and I felt so blessed to have so many of our friends there to share in this experience. Mabel was very helpful in creating the flowers for the pier and the table centerpieces, she also assisted us with setting up a DJ and a wedding style cake. Unfortunately Domingo did not make this cake which was a little disappointing because his cakes were WAY better tasting, but we didn't complain. The DJ was also a huge success and everyone seemed to enjoy the dancing. I would not only recommend this place but I would come back again.

Our 7 day stay could not have been any better! Maribel and Chef Micky were extremely accommodating to our many needs! The staff was incredible, they kept the house immaculate while the 9 of us did our best to make a mess! This house is as beautiful as it appears in the pictures! Our group of nine never felt crowded, as there is more than enough room. The pool was amazing as well as the game room/bar right off the pool! Bring your iPod, it was so nice having a stereo system that not only played to speakers outside but could be heard throughout the house as well! The use of the golf cart was really convenient! We made many trips to the grocery store for more rum and beer and being able to just hop on the cart was great! Part of the group did make a trip the Placencia Hotel to spend time at the swim up bar, they said the drinks were fantastic as well as the bartender and that you must try the restaurant's appetizer french fries, as they were fantastic! Our favorite meals were the ones created by Chef Micky, but for those nights we did not have a chef we tried the Mayan Bistro just down the road. The food was phenomenal as were the prices! The food was upscale and the atmosphere was island perfect! I would recommend the Jammin Gecko to anyone, it was simply amazing! Submitted: Aug 15, 2016 Stayed: Aug 2016 Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
