Even better than our expectations!

Review submitted: February 24, 2014   Date of arrival: February 8, 2014

We just returned from a week stay at the Tipsy Gecko with friends and we were not disappointed. The pictures online accurately portray the house and we certainly were not missing anything. David and Kathy's recommendations were very helpful and much appreciated. We rented a car and drove to Placencia from Belize City. We were glad to have a vehicle to drive our larger group into town, but it certainly would not be necessary. The golf cart, provided cell phone and free calls to the states were greatly appreciated as well. Javier and Mabel were pleasant and always helpful whether we needed directions or help with anything in the house. And the daily maid service and laundry was a great bonus! The construction next door was not a deterrence and really was not too noisy and the workers did not bother us at all. We ate at many of the recommended restaurants and also bought fresh seafood off the pier and cooked at the house. We were fortunate to be in Placencia the last week of lobster season so it was plentiful everywhere. We enjoyed some of the best seafood we've ever had in Belize. We have already recommended the house to several of our friends and we hope to be back ourselves again soon! Hands down one of the best vacations we've ever had!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with us and it rained most of the week. A few issues with the house that I wanted to discuss with you. First, I think someone should have informed us before we rented the villa that there was a house within 100 feet that was under construction. I am sure you know about it because Dave informed me it was a property owned by the association. Banging all day long beginning at 8am until 5, the men working on the home openly urinated on the property and when they had the need to poop they crossed our property and walked into the woods on the right of Tipsy Gecko, not nice. In the States all construction sites have port of potties, but I understand where we were. I had my Niece and her friend (younger) and they informed me it was very uncomfortable to sit by the pool with the workers looking at them from the roof of the house. The house had no beach chairs and the pool chairs were too heavy to drag onto the beach to get away from the noise and peepers.

When we arrived there was no outside lights that worked. They had a guy come to the house on Monday to work on them and he could not get them working, my nephew is an electrician and he took the time out of his vacation and helped them with that issue and we managed to get lights outside and on the dock.

This next one really was an issue for me. i have been renting villa's for 30 years and this has NEVER happened to me. I went to the store only to return to Haviar showing a couple through our house. When I asked him what he was doing he informed me they were someone that was renting the construction site next year and he asked one of my friends if it was ok to show them all through the house. First, you tell us to lock everything up, put everything in the safe when your not around, don't leave anything out or someone will take them. Well, because someone was home we didn't do all that only to have strangers brought in and WALKED all through the place including into our bedrooms. I'm sorry this was wrong. I'm sure there could have been another way, drawings, photos something other than to interrupt and disturb our time.

No Bikes (told they were inoperable)
No beach chairs
No ping pong table

The housekeepers were amazing, came everyday to spruce up the house and do the laundry. Really nice touch since we spent so much time inside with the weather and the noise. We managed to get some food in the country and the kitchen was nicely stocked to suppo

Recommended for: adventure seekers, sight seeing

Owners response: This is a classic example of can not please everyone as they say.

Yes a new home is being constructed next door around a 100 feet way as per her review. There is a large temporary wood fence constructed around site to screen it and we got the workers to start at 8 and limit noise until until after 9. Have since got on workers for walking on public beach and they assure me they will not in future - fortunately house is well along in construction and will be done in early May of 14.

There are at least 8 large custom made wood chaise lounges by the pool and on the pier not to mention regular chairs in the beach cabana. Apparently the nice wood chairs were not in the exact spot they wanted them and were "to heavy to move by yourself". Yes they are heavy as they are custom hardwood chairs but certainly can be moved by one or two or the full time caretaker if anyone would have asked him to move them to a different spot, etc. Ping pong table is under large palapa on lagoon lot under a cover - right next too our personal fishing kayaks that I let them use to go fishing in the lagoon. Agree that of the 5 bicycles at home only one or two work proper. We are shipping down 5 new ones in Feb as can not buy decent ones in Belize to hold up to salt water, etc.

Yes the lights on the pier were out on the day she arrived as she was told upon arrival and that electrician would be there on Monday to fix as they did not get finished rewiring from house. We had been having problems with a short in wire from house to pier when it rained so on Saturday the had rewired the whole pier but ran out of daylight to finish.

As review said caretaker asked one of the other couples staying at home if he could show a couple looking at property the inside of home. Again, ASKED if okay and when said YES showed them the inside of home. It certainly was not a big deal to show them inside of home as they were looking at other home anyway, etc. and apparently not a big deal to the other couple staying at house either.

We strive to make sure everyone has a good time in Belize and at our home!
