We have arranged with many local restaurants FREE delivery for pool side breakfast, lunch and dinner and we are always willing to jump on a blender to mix up some fun drinks...we even have the little umbrellas! TIP: Don't forget to 'stock up' on your favorite spirits or wines at the Duty-Free shops in the Belize Int'l Airport as the cost outside, at the stores is at least 3X higher then there. Need a rental car? Skip the airport hassle's. We offer a fully insured clean and reliable 2010 Kia Sportage, only for our guests! $65.00usd per day, the best rate in Belize! We can comfortably accommodate 4 persons here in the Bungalow. If there are more in your party, (up to 7 total) we have a terrific Queen bedroom and also a single, twin bedroom in the main house with their own private bathrooms. Just let us know and we can work out that arrangement, No Problem! After all, the more the merrier, right! General Information: There are so many fascinating places and adventures to be had in this beautiful country that it is virtually limitless. We can offer tons of free advice on where to go and what to do on the mainland and point you in the right direction for the Cayes. We are located about 2 miles from the Phillip Goldson International Airport and provide FREE courtesy pick up and drop off for you during your stay. Just send us your flight information prior your arrival. The Gecko Bungalow is about 9 miles from Belize City, in the town of Ladyville. From here you are 1.5 hours away from Corozal Belize and Chetumal Mexico, just over the border to the North. Three hours to the South, enjoy the sands of Placencia and another hour past that to beautiful Punta Gorda. Water taxis can motor you out to the 'laid back' island of Caye Caulker or for a little faster pace, fun trip to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. You can also opt to fly out to the islands via hopper plane on Maya Air or Tropic Air. Trips to Placencia, Dangriga, Hopkins, Punta Gorda and Corozal, etc. can be easily accessed. We can transport you into Belize City to the water taxis or the Municipal Airport for your flight at a cost of US$25.00 per couple, each way. Let us know if you would like to have snacks or refreshments ready and waiting in the fridge for your arrival. All beverage products (Sodas, Ice cold Belikin beers, wonderful Local Wines and Liquor are available), chips & salsa, cheese, goodies…really anything you can think of, we can have waiting. For your convenience, receipts will be provided and be billed separately. 20% surcharged added. If you would like us to prepare a hearty breakfast on the patio, we will be more than happy to provide that also. Prices vary but we'll cover that when you get here. Note: 24 hour advanced notice required to provide the freshest ingredients possible. To secure your dates and confirm your reservation, we accept full payment through PayPal More

Thank you for choosing the Gecko Bungalow! We are suitable for kids to stay but as a 'heads-up', please note that our pooch is a full sized dog (Labrador) and he likes to play. Sorry, but we decided that other pets cannot be allowed. We tried that before and it just didn't work out well. Our dog hates to be shut indoors while a new friend is outside. Smoking is permitted outside on the patio but not inside the Bungalow or our rental car if you use it.

The Lyons are very knowledgable about the area. They can inform you of the best restaurants, affordable tourist attractions and the easiest domestic travel. All of their information is based on the experience of living and playing there. They are one of the warmest and most accommodating hosts I've experienced and walk you through immersing into the Belizean culture. The accommodation is a sweet little 2br cottage on the property near the main house. The cottage holds all of the kitchen necessities you would find in any modern local along with AC and hot water. The beds are super cozy with full set of bedding. The property grows fresh tropical fruit and has a top of the line barbecue for that possible fresh catch if you take part in the local fishing. The cottage also holds a ton of literature on location attractions and tours nearby. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this couple and their property. You want this!

This had to be the best place I have ever stayed. We were so comfortable and well taken care of. Can't express how much we loved the owner Michelle. She was friendly and told us all of the things to do and see that really added to our experience. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to return. Will be staying there every time we go!

I would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Belize to stay at Gecko Bungalow. It was such a comfortable place to stay and the owner was very friendly and accommodating. It was the perfect getaway and we couldn't have found a better deal.

what a great little place! Michelle and Scott are two of the nicest folks you would ever want to meet. They treated me like family, and Michelle made sure that I had every thing I needed. She even took me to her fav bars and restaurants and introduced me to she and Scott's friends. When I go back to Belize, rest assured that "the cutest little bungalow" will be my first stop!! Highly recommended!

Just back from an adventure road-trip through Belize that began and ended at Gecko Bungalow! What a great little rental! Michelle picked us up from the airport with a welcome drink in hand and whisked us off on the start of our Belize adventure! The cottage is absolutely adorable, extremely clean and such a great place to stay! Michelle is happy to give advice on how to experience Belize like a local! She was the BEST and we absolutely loved the bungalow!! Don't miss this place!

We went to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday and enjoyed every minute. Michelle was waiting for us to give us access/keys and she was very friendly. She helped us plan our itinerary so we wouldn't miss anything. Perfect place at a great price, close to the airport, the city and other attractions. We will definitely book it again.

Getting around
We offer FREE pickup and drop-off from the International Airport! Please notify us after your reservation if you would like to take advantage of that.

If we can accommodate, we also offer rides to the water taxis or municipal airport in Belize City for $25usd, the same as the regular taxis. If we are unable, then we have several taxis on call to get you where you need to go. We do not recommend the local bus system.
