Villa Merry Gecko, is an updated 2 story villa on the waterfront of the picturesque Placencia lagoon. This home, with 4 spacious bedrooms and 3.5 baths, is located in a private very secure gated community. The 24-hour security and guard gate offer safety and privacy. Being located on the Placencia lagoon adds a unique touch of beauty and awe to this property. The sunsets over the lagoon and Maya Mountains are spectacular! From your back yard, take the provided kayaks to fish for Snook, Snapper and more in a world class location. If you are not into fishing a sightseeing trip on the kayaks through the mangrove filled lagoon is a great way to spend the day.

With all this you are still just a short walk or even shorter golf cart ride from the amazing beach, pool and other amenities at the Placencia Hotel and Casino. This Villa offers the privacy and comfort of your own home along with high-end resort amenities including daily maid service and professional chef to cook your meals 3 days a week right at the villa.

We are located across the street from the Placencia Hotel, 1 mile north of the Belize Ocean Club and 2 miles north of Maya Beach Bistro.

Should I drive or fly to Placencia? 

FLYING – The flight from Belize City to Placencia is 25 - 30 minutes and cost $243.50 round trip per person. Once we receive your group’s international flight details, we will book your local flights and arrange pick up from the Placencia airstrip to the property. 

PRIVATE SHUTTLE – The drive from Belize City to Placencia is 3 hours and cost $550 round trip for up to 3 passengers then $50 for each additional person round trip. 1 hour is through the rainforest and unbelievably beautiful. Once we receive your group’s international flight details, we will book your shuttle to the property.

DRIVING – for a week trip as long as you have at least 4 people per vehicle driving ends up being less expensive than flying. The drive is 3 hours with easy to follow directions. 1 hour is through the rainforest and unbelievably beautiful. We do advise trying to get to the house pretty close to dark as there aren’t a lot of street lights in Belize. With that being said a flight arriving at 4pm or later will not allow you to get to Placencia before dark and the drive in the dark is much harder and NOT advised!

Great house desolate location

House with Pool was great Mabel was great and the chef Anthony was fantastic. We went in August so Mosquitoes were an issue but not bad. Highly recommend the ATM caves

Relaxing adventure!

Wonderful home, with friendly staff! Our entire trip was coordinated with their attentive concierge from booking to departure with every detail attended to. The chef prepared our breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 3 days and we believe it was the best meals we had while in Placencia. We celebrated a birthday and they surprised us with a birthday cake, balloons, and sweet thoughtful decorations. Speaking of decorations, we had fresh tropical flowers in every room when we arrived and they stayed throughout our entire stay. Loved the small touches around this property. We will be back!!

Best Vacation of My Life!

Perfect in every way! The home was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. We enjoyed watching the sunsets over the lagoon in the evenings. The meals from the chef were so delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. Placencia village is a laid back town perfect for families. There are plenty of resturants, bars, gift shops and even a gelateria. We cant't wait to return!

Great location and value.

This home was a great value with 4 bedrooms. Plenty or room for our group of 7. The location is nice in a secure neighborhood close to Maya Beach for fantastic restaurants and grocery store. The daily housekeeping and chef service made the vacation completely stress free. I was a little concerned about being on the lagoon instead of the beach but the sunsets over the mountains across the lagoon were amazing; unexpected bonus! We had plenty of beach time on our snorkeling trip and across the street and at the resort. I highly recommend this property.
