“Top option in Placencia for larger group”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We booked the property via vrbo.com, relying on the photos and info supplied by the owner. The Keeners were very helpful and easy to work with during the process.

Our group of 10 -- one small child, teenagers, college students and adults -- had a terrific time at the property. We stayed at Lazy Gecko, which is on the lagoon side, and walked across the road to the beach near the sister property, Tipsy Gecko. We also had use of the property's golf cart to get into town (a 30-min ride) and also to the local market, various resorts to eat, the large resort where we had access (a nice perk, beautiful pool), etc.

We made about half our meals in the kitchen, which was nicely furnished, and I would highly recommend bringing whatever staples you can bring - pasta, rice, cereal, etc. - if you are planning to cook. There is a grocery store a short ride away where you can source most things, but they only get certain things delivered on certain days. We could not get butter or milk for a few days. This is an issue in general, not with the rental at all, and something I would suggest preparing for. However, there are a number of places to eat nearby, so you definitely won't starve and will eat quite well. I highly recommend the Maya Beach Resort restaurant and Splash Diving for excursions.

With children, I would also recommend bringing a few games. The house has Scrabble and Sorry, and we bought a deck of cards in town. There were times when we were all sunburned and just wanted to sit inside.

We were surprised at the quality of the staff at the rental -- daily housekeeping with laundry service from Brenda and Javier the caretaker - which really made the week feel luxurious. They were also very helpful and friendly in general.

I highly recommend checking out Lazy Gecko (or Tipsy Gecko, across the street).

Liked best: The house was fantastic.
Liked least: Really nothing. The upstairs TV was broken, but we realized that fixing it probably required shipping one from the USA, so we just rolled with it. We ended up spending all our time downstairs, which was unexpected and rather crowded with 10 people.
