Groovy Gecko Villa
- SQF 3,700
Villa Groovy Gecko is a magnificent, large, very open, two story private waterfront beach house located directly on the Caribbean Sea in Placencia, Belize. Large infinity pool on beach, with outdoor covered area.
We are located just 1 mile south from the Placencia Hotel and 1 mile north of Maya Beach. The home is uniquely located in upscale area that provides for a very private beach setting, yet it is close to fine dining and other upscale resorts in an exclusive section of Placencia, just 10 minutes from Placencia Village and air strip.
Home is built to enjoy the ocean front breezes and fresh air. Downstairs the large open air courtyard is complete with full outdoor kitchen and bar entertainment area.
Outstanding features radiate luxury and beauty throughout this exquisite 5 Bedroom, 5.5 Bath residence.
The home is meticulously maintained by full time onsite staff and very active owners.
Home can sleep up to 36 when combined with Tipsy & Jammin Gecko located next door on the beach.
The main home is two stories consisting of over 3,500 sq ft of living area and covered patios directly over looking a private beach and the ocean.
Upstairs in the home you will find the master bedroom with a large master bath and breathtaking views of the ocean. Upstairs also includes a second bedroom with a private bathroom, a large living room, dinning room, large well equipped open kitchen and a massive covered patio that goes across the entire back of the home overlooking the ocean.
The three remaining bedrooms are located on the first floor, each with its own private bath.
While the home is specifically designed to take advantage of the trade winds coming off the ocean the home is equipped with the latest high end solar assisted A/C systems that not only are the quietest available anywhere but also VERY energy efficient.
Cook dinner on either the large outside gas grill or the Green Egg charcoal grill and enjoy a local drink while relaxing under the fans on the large covered patios just steps from the ocean.

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!
