The "Tipsy Gecko" Home is a beautiful all concrete construction custom home with first class finish out in Belize's fastest growing tourism area.
This is the perfect investment opportunity for someone looking for an upscale first class, large waterfront 2nd home that wants a place to truely call their own but does not want the expense and full time headach to maintain. Owners have the flexibility to use and enjoy their five allocated weeks per year or elect to rent some or all of their weeks as well as use open weeks on calendar for last minute use at no cost. The home over the past 2 years has a very established and proven rental history and excellent reviews from previous guests on all the large vacation home rental web sites such as VRBO (see listing # 286157).
The home is fully furnished both inside and out and set up for a turn the key relaxing time for its owners. Large lockers are provided for each owner in the detached laundry / mechanical room for storage of any personal items like dive gear, fishing gear, clothes or other personal items when owners are not using the property. The home has 2 master suites upstairs making it comfortably for than one family to use the property at the same time. The rest of the upstairs consists of a study/kids video room, a large wet bar and living room and a large covered patio overlooking the sea. The downstairs consists of 2 bedrooms each with private baths, a large living area, kitchen, breakfast area and dinning area with a large covered patio looking out to the sea. There is also a detached staff quarters above the laundry and mechanical room.
Placencia has some of the best beaches in Belize and is set for rapid tourism and growth. Placencia is also know for its world class saltwater fly fishing both off shore in the flats and the lagoon that is directly across the street from the home. When going fishing your local guide can pick you up at the house on the beach side pier to go to the coral flats or in back on the lagoon dock to chase Snook or Tarpon in the mangrove lined creeks and lagoon. Placencia is also ideally located to explore and enjoy the unique jungle and inland features of Belize such as Mayan Ruins, cave tubing, water falls, hiking, zip lines, etc.
We are down to the final 1/10 share (price per share $125,000) left to sell in the home. Owners in the home, which currently are from various regions of the US, Canada and Germany, are given the opportunity to enjoy and use the home on a relaxed friendly basis while making a good return on their initial investment. Usage is governed by a very well drafted usage agreement that assigns weeks of usage on a rotating annual basis. To date (and for 2014) all owners have at least been able to pick the first two weeks of their usage without any conflicts, etc with other owners. I would expect that to continue in the future as current owner usage is limited and spread out through the entire year. What we do not want is a timeshare sort of system with high management fees and expenses. Home has full time care taker that lives on site that performes all maintenance on property, and is full time concerige when owners or guest are at home.
There are NO MANAGEMENT FEES and expenses are simply what it cost to provide basic utilities, hurricane and casualty insurance and to maintain the property, and vehicle to a high level that all owners would expect and demand.
Current booked rental income well exceeds all expenses to operate the home and maintain at a first class level, thus making for a positive cash flow investment that owners can use for free.
Please send email to and we can send you a complete PDF slide show full of photos of the home, floor plan and bedroom details.
The entire 25 mile road from the Placencia Village to the Western Highway was 100% completed in July 2010 the paving of the road will forever change the entire peninsula and certainly fuel a continued appreciation in property values and tourism in Placencia.
Home also comes with a 2005 Ford King Ranch 4 door truck, 4 seat XRT Club Car gas golf cart and a new Yamaha Zuma scooter. As well as large 150' ocean pier with covered palapa was just completed in January 2011 and BREND NEW POOL just finished in November 2012 both of which are included in price.
Underlying value of home and proven return from rental income makes this a very solid investment that can be used and enjoyed by owners. Seller also builds homes in area and if down the road a buyer decides they want to live full time in Placencia, Seller will take share of home in on trade for the construction of a new home. This unique offer allows an owner in the home to get to really get to know and enjoy Belize now while making a nice return on their investment to be used towards the purchase of a full time residence in the future.
Owners also have access to pool and other ammenities of the upscale large private resort just 1 mile from home.
