About the property

New 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom (Sleeps 10)

Villa Laguna Gecko, is a newly constructed 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.

About Talia Walton

Property designed, built and managed by Texas couple that have been visiting and building in Placencia since 2001.

On site staff are a very friendly young couple that speak great English and make you feel at home. They are extremely professional, trust worthy and guests can arrange for wife to baby sit, if they want to leave smaller children to go diving or enjoy a great meal out.

Talia Walton purchased this house in 2016

Why Talia Walton chose Belize

Laguna 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.

What makes this house unique

On-site staff, daily housekeeping with laundry service, security, chef provided (for every 2 days of rental, receive the one day of the chef - will prepare 3 meals per day), use of new gas golf cart, kayaks, paddle boards and bikes are all included.

Access to the Placencia Hotel's 1 acre pool, casino, beach, tennis court, work out facility and other amenities.

Short golf cart ride away from the many fine restaurants located in Maya Beach.

Doesn't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beyond expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Vacation to Belize

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Beautiful and Luxurious house

  • 5 of 5

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.
