Our party of 9 was very comfortable in this 5 BR, 5 BA house. The staff was very helpful, pleasant and capable. Delicious meals prepared by on site chef. We thoroughly enjoyed the nearby restaurants as well, especially the Bistro.
The house comes very well furnished including paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel equipment and bikes.
Cant recommend this VRBO enough. We would definitely stay here again.
The pictures dont do this place justice. The house is set up perfectly the staff is wonderful. From the moment you get there you are greeted with a rum punch drink and the vacation starts. Geri helped with a ton of information before you got there. Once there Mabel helped us plan excursions, Domingo cooked us great meals and kept us very well fed. On nights he didnt cook for us there were so many good choices it was hard to pick.. Should have stayed longer..
We rented this house and the one next door. We had a wonderful time, the staff was so friendly and helpful! Beautiful homes and view. Set aside from all the touristy areas, but close enough to get to where we wanted.

This is our first stay at the Groovy and it exceeded our expectations beyond measure. I, personally, didn't leave the house and all the luxurious amenities there, however, my family ventured out to the waterfalls, the Bacawana zip-lining course, and deep-sea fishing expedition and had a blast. It was the slow season for most of the restaurants, so we had no problem finding several restaurants with no waiting or the need for reservations on nights Domingo did not FEED us until we popped! Housekeeping kept up with our party of 10 with no problem - so kudos to Mabel & Brenda! Can't wait for our return trip - it's already booked for 2016!!!! P.S. - for anyone allergic to sand flies, the pharmacy in Placencia had a native remedy and a natural repellent that worked better than OFF w/ DEET, Benadryl ointment, or Calagel. I was the only one who got bit the whole time, hence I stayed in the pool instead of opting for the jungle!!

I stayed at the Groovy Gecko in August and it was amazing. The staff is so accommodating, the food is the best and Placencia has so much to offer. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Belize!
