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.
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.

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 Maya Beach
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.

This house is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and lovely decor.
The sunsets from the 3rd floor balcony amazing! This house has everything needed and more. The maids were so wonderful everyone came home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. 😊
The whole experience was Amazing!! Very relaxing and stress free. The house was beautiful and well kept. The staff was so nice and accommodating. The food, oh my gosh the food was soooo good!!! We will definitely be back!
Property - especially the house - was even more beautiful than the pictures
Six of us stayed at Laguna Gecko this past week, which had to be the wettest and cloudiest week on record outside of the rainy season! While the weather was disappointing (only 3 days of partial sunshine), the house was beautiful, spacious and well set up for entertaining. We loved the lagoon and mountains view, and it was only a 5 minute golf cart ride across the street to the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean. As grand as the house was, the staff was even better! Mabel served as our concierge, overseeing our excursions (making changes to factor in the weather) and checking in with us frequently. Brenda was fantastic, caring for the house as if it were her own and taking care of what seemed to be endless laundry for our group. We want to enter Domingo and Manuel as contestants on "Chopped" - they are incredible chefs and were so accommodating - cooking fish the group caught the last night and picking up some groceries for us when they were in the village. Javier came by often to make sure all was well. Talia was very patient with my endless questions before departure. All of you were stars! The pool, palapa and recreation equipment - especially the bikes -- were great. We were spoiled, and highly recommend Laguna Gecko for any family or group wanting a luxury vacation in a country of friendly people and beautiful beaches. Thank you.
The house and its location were spectacular
This is a very beautiful and modern house with all of the current trends and features. The views are spectacular. The house has a number of places to sit and enjoy the Placencia landscape. The staff (concierge, chef and housekeeper) were professional, competent and delightful. They attended to every need. The property is in perfect condition and extremely clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend Laguna Gecko to all.
The house was exactly as described. The staff was amazing. Home is located perfectly and our kids enjoyed all the activities in the area.
The house and amenities were lovely, the location was perfect, and the staff were amazing. Absolutely would come back!
