Villa Laguna Gecko, is a 3 story custom waterfront estate with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, located in a private very secure gated community overlooking the Lagoon and Maya mountains in the Maya Beach area of Placencia, Belize. Being located on the Placencia lagoon adds so much to this property. The sunsets over the lagoon and Maya Mountains are spectacular. From your back yard take the Villa's 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. The 24-hour security and guard gate offer safety and privacy. 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 all the associated high end resort amenities including daily maid service and professional chef to cook your meals 3 days a week in the home that is included with rental.

Property is professionally managed by the owners through full time staff in their office in Texas and full time concierge and professional staff in Belize that offers the best possible service, before, during and after your stay.

Doesn't get much better than this!

Laguna Gecko did not disappoint. We loved everything about this property - location, views, amenities, the list is endless! The staff were all amazing and beyond professional. Domingo and Victor were extremely talented chefs, I wish they could come home with me! Brenda was always so sweet and efficient. Mabel was so accommodating and helpful when it came to tours and any sort of questions we had. Even the airport transfers - Lewis and Javier- so friendly and helpful! Talia was a HUGE help with all of my annoying pre-trip questions and with scheduling flights for us! We did the Monkey River tour and loved it. The boat captain (James) and the guide (Raymond) were knowledgeable and super friendly. We got to see monkeys, crocodiles, manatees, and dolphins...all on one tour!! We definitely enjoyed this! We also did a fishing/snorkeling trip with James for a full day. Talk about a great captain and tour guide. He is born and raised in Placencia and really knows his stuff. Expert fisherman and such a vast knowledge of the wildlife and land. We really enjoyed our day out with him. He took great pride in his work and we would definitely book another excursion with him! The house itself is stunning - so beautifully decorated and the views are one in a million. We would wake up every morning and truly enjoy our coffee on the back patios. The house has everything you could possibly want or need for the week. Be sure and eat (multiple meals) at Maya Beach Bistro, Rum Fish y Vino, and enjoy some coffee or tea at Above Grounds. Long story short - do yourself a favor and book at Laguna Gecko! Submitted: Jun 7, 2017 Stayed: May 2017 Source: VRBO, from HomeAway

Beyond expectations!!!

I cannot even begin to tell you how blessed we were to find Villa Laguna Gecko in Placencia! The location was perfect, the house and views were absolutely stunning! We brought along our five-year-old son and one-year-old daughter who loved swimming in the pool both at the house and at the resort every single day. My husband and five-year-old son would get up early every morning and take the golfcart to the pier to go fishing. Time together they will surely never forget. We also took the golf cart to a couple of nearby restaurants which were lovely. But I will say, the one thing we felt spoiled by the most was Brenda, the amazing housekeeper who came daily, and Chefs Domingo and George! You definitely have to try Chef George's chocolate cake, I can still taste it! We are grateful to the owners and wonderful staff of Villa Laguna gecko. It was a vacation our family will always remember! Submitted: May 7, 2017 Stayed: Apr 2017 Source: VRBO, from HomeAway

Beautiful and Luxurious house

This house on the lagoon side of Plancencia is a beautiful and well kept property. You have views of water on both sides with the lagoon and the ocean. Having use of the resort across the road was wonderful - we could choose between privacy on the lagoon side, or pool and other people on the beach side. The house is in a gated estate with secure entry. The golf cart was fun to use to zip around to restaurants! Domingo the Chef was excellent as were Brenda and Mabel who helped us with the house.

Great Vacation to Belize

What a great vacation for our family! The home is beautiful and in a great location. Mabel was amazing and helped us with everything from excursions, to local transportation. Both Domingo and George prepared great food and Brenda, the homes keeper, was great too! It was so nice to have the laundry done daily. We all over packed way to many clothes! It was nice to have grocery stores and restaurants within a short golf cart ride from the home. My only suggestion for people traveling here is to bring extra cash, if your venturing out! The cab to town, some of the excursions and restaurants in the town of Placencia, do not take credit cards. The closest cash station is in Placencia, which is $105.00 US cab ride or a 40 minute golf cart ride, from the property. Not a big deal, just a good information. We would totally recommend this property, it was amazing. Also, the owners were super responsive and accommodating. The last night we were in Belize, the owner stopped by and introduced himself. Could not have asked for a better experience. We felt totally safe and well taken care of!! Great Memories made here! Thanks from Chicago!! Submitted: Apr 5, 2017 Stayed: Mar 2017 Source: HomeAway

Everything was beyond expectations. The house and community were more beautiful than the pictures. Communication with the owners and staff was excellent before and during our vacation. The pre-travel assistance in arranging airport transfers was above and beyond helpful. Everyone including the house manager, concierge, housekeeper and chef did everything possible to make our trip extraordinary. Would gladly return.

Gecko properties offer the best stay in Placencia

I have stayed at Laguna Gecko, Groovy Gecko, and Little Harvest Caye (all same developer), and I can honestly say that there is no other way I would ever visit Placencia Belize. The amenities and hospitality are second to none and truly go above and beyond to make you feel like a king. I highly recommend staying at one of the properties managed and owned by Vision Properties Belize, you won't be disappointed. Source: VRBO, from HomeAway

Best Belize it was Amazing!

The whole experience was wonderful! The amenities provided were beyond comparable. We especially enjoyed being able to access everything we needed in the resort by golf cart. Convenience was such an added perk, and the pool was to die for. We will definitely be returning and recommending to our friends and family. Source: VRBO, from HomeAway

Beautiful villa great location

My recent stay and Villa Laguna Gecko couldn't have gone better. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. The location is secure and close to a beautiful resort and casino. The sunset over the lagoon was one of the most beautiful I have every seen. Brenda the housekeeper was friendly, helpful and took great care of us. Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
