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.

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.
Our level of quality and customer service can be verified by reading the reviews on our other Gecko properties, VRBO #'s 286157 and 663419 . Home can sleep up to 36 when combined with listing 286157 and 663419 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.
We are located just 1 mile south from the Placencia Hotel and 1 mile north of Maya Beach.

About Geriann Beck
This house was built by top developer David Keener who has been recently featured on "Island Hunters"
Geriann Beck purchased this House in 2013
Why Geriann Beck chose Maya Beach
Groovy Gecko is located in heart of some of the best saltwater fly fishing in the world as well as world class diving and snorkeling on the 2nd largest coral reef system in the world. The now fully paved 26 mile Placencia road makes getting on and off the peninsula by car a much more enjoyable and faster experience, thus making access to the rain forest, Mayan ruins, cave tubing and other attractions in the jungle easily accessible. Being the 3rd home we have constructed the Groovy Gecko will have all the amenities a family or group of friends could want in their vacation rental. Besides the fabulous residence you will be staying in PLACENCIA OFFERS THE WHOLE BELIZE EXPERIENCE!

I can't imagine a better vacation...total paradise! The houses are gorgeous, meticulously maintained, and the staff goes out of their way to ensure that every detail is perfect. All the food was terrific (wish we could have had the chef everyday!), and the care they put into setting up the wedding we were celebrating was awesome. Look forward to returning! Thank you to all the staff for a fabulous, memorable vacation!
Perfect For our Needs
Groovy Gecko was terrific. Loved the house layout. We had a beautiful view of the ocean, and spent almost all our non-excursion time at the pool or out on a kayak. The bar on the lower level is very handy. Mabel and the staff made our trip so enjoyable, and the food was terrific. Could not have picked a better place for a large group. Thanks to Geri for all her help coordinating the pre-trip details.
Wonderful staff and chef!
We were beyond impressed with the Groovy Gecko! Before our arrival, Mabel was incredibly helpful with planning excursions, coordinating travel, and answering our many questions. Geri provided an excellent list of restaurant recommendations (don’t miss out on the peanut brittle ice cream pie at the Bistro – so good!). The house is gorgeous and is meticulously maintained. We had 11 people in our group (with 4 kids) and there was plenty of room for everyone. With daily maid service - including laundry - we truly felt spoiled. We enjoyed the pool, pier, sea kayaks, golf carts, and open air kitchen. This is undoubtedly the nicest VRBO we have stayed at. We are counting down the days until we can return to the Groovy Gecko!
The accommodations were perfect for our group and the staff was awesome! Food prepared by chefs was as good as any restaurant if not better.
Absolutely Stunning Paradise!
The Groovy Gecko is by far the best vacation rental I've ever visited! Everything including Geri's helpfulness, Chef Domingo's cooking, the rest of the staff, the pool and beach, the rooms, and the entire house itself were all eceptional. Can't wait to be back!
Private secluded beach, close to three of the best restaurants on the Peninsula, fish or watch sunset over lagoon and mountains from dock on lot across street.
