“Beautiful property with relaxing atmosphere.”
This place is a wonderful vacation spot! This is my second year to go back and money well spent. The property is well maintained and the pier with the hammocks is the best spot in Placencia. Time just stops when you're here. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a non touristy area and plenty of time to relax and enjoy the local restaurants.
A beautiful place just as the pictures show. The caretakers were great and very nice. The pier is a great addition to the property. We fished off it everyday, with not much success however, but it was still fun. We even had a dinner dance party out their with music and all. The Typsy Gecko is a must place to rent and it was very comfortable for our group of 12. We would definitely stay there again and hopefully it will be in the not so far future.
We went down this past January with 1 of the owners. We hated leaving. We made some great friends with the locals and saw incredible sights (ruins, diving, snorkeling, zip lining, fishing). The house is immaculate and the staff (Javier and Mabel) go above and beyond to make your stay a joy.
“Longing for Villa Tipsy Gecko!”
It has been almost one year since we traveled to Villa Tipsy Gecko in Placencia Belize and we still talk about it as one our our most treasured vacations! A family of four and our first visit to Belize...we couldn't have been more pleased. Not only was the Villa Tipsy Gecko amazing, but it was immaculate, well furnished, spacious and truly revealed the best of Belize. We loved the location - close to the charming village of Placencia, but private and remote just the same. The palapa, dock, hammock and swing allowed hours to pass while enjoying sunrises, sunsets, the beauty of the carribbean, the kids snorkeling feet away ( finding all kinds of sea treasures) and the wonderful breeze. When quiet became too quiet, the wonderful onsite golf cart made for a great trip into town. Meals were wonderful; groceries were plentiful and fresh for cooking inside or out; along with many nearby resorts and restaurants to enjoy locally grown and prepared amazing meals. We enjoyed three fishing days: one with a local guide through avadon Dive Shop, one with a recommended local in Placencia and our final day with Percy (who also took us to a private island for shell collecting). We enjoyed Percy's Monkey River Tour (what fun), a full day of diving and snorkeling the Blue Hole with avadon Dive Shop (long day but well worth the experience) and Cave Tubing only 45 minutes from Villa Tipsy Gecko. The home is beautiful, well managed, safe and allowed our family a well needed week of affordable luxury and R&R.; We highly recommend this property as it meets the needs of a small family like ours, or a large group - comfortably. Decorated with local art and furnishings completed our experience of our Belizean experience.
“Villa Tipsy Gecko”
This was the third vacation we have taken where we decided to rent a home instead staying in a resort. This was by far my best home rental experience to date! The pictures posted of this home on the internet do it no justice! Everything about the home and property is in like new condition. The grounds keeper and his wife life in a small house on the property and do an excellent job. The house was cleaned thoroughly everyday, our laundry was washed and our bed sheets changed for us! The kitchen was fully equipped to cook for our group of 10. The outdoor kitchen and patio was also fully equipped and was the source of many late evenings entertaining our selves! The owner of this property is extremely organized, I was given a spreadsheet full of all necessary info about the home and contact information for grocery, restaurants, dive shops and even doctors! Getting from the airport to the home was taken care of by the grounds keeper and could not have been any easier! The home is away from the tourist section of Placencia, about 1/4 mile away from restaurants, It is secluded with no neighbors and everything you need is within easy reach by the provided golf cart which no other home I researched provided. The area has plenty to see and do, we are scuba divers and had several dive shops to choose from, Avadon was the most professional outfit I have used to date! There are several inexpensive things to do in the area, we went to a Jaguar Preserve and went tubing through a jungle river for $10 / person! I have never been a fan of vacationing at a particular place more than once but we are already discussing the possibility of returning to this home!
“Fabulous accommodations and location!”
I'm very late in my review, as we stayed here in February of this year ('11). We have vacationed in the Placencia area 5 times in the past 10 years and this is the best place there is! We had a small family reunion with ages 2 to 70... every single person had an amazing time and most of it could be attributed to this amazing house, it's location, and the owners. Although we did do several excursions (inland and out on the water), we found that we didn't need to leave the house very much to have a wonderful time. This home has it all, especially with the great location- on a private beach with an awesome pier. The owners have thought of every amenity and are so kind to share all of it. We hope to return many more times! Thank you!!
“Lovely home with excellent support”
The house was all it appeared to be and more. Our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed or wanted. The caretakers are fabulous and kept a watchful eye on the place and on us, but were never intrusive. They take very good care of the property and tended to our every request with professionalism. We tried not to burden them with much, but whatever we needed they were more than glad to assist. We enjoyed scuba diving, snorkeling, tour of Monkey River, Mayan ruin exploration, hanging under the palapa, dining and shopping in Placencia and more. Thanks so much for your help in making this a memorable holiday vacation!
