David and Kathy Keener, along with their team, have over the past 10 years created a profitable vacation island and ocean front villa rental operation that continues to raise the bar and create new standards for 5-Star luxury island & villa construction and operation management. This is evident by the well above market high occupancy rate and consistent high rated guest reviews that Vision’s three unique private islands and numerous ocean front villas are known for in Belize.
The Company’s latest island project, Gladden Caye Private Island, was just featured on the cover of the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller Magazine – May Issue as well as the cover of the go to island publication, Private Island Magazine – Winter Issue, which boasted Gladden as the most private luxury island in the world.
Vision Properties currently manages three unique and exclusive private islands off the coast of Placencia, Belize:
In addition, the company is currently working a new unique island project called Kanu Private Island also in Placencia and is being constructed and transformed to take advantage of specific and different market opportunities.
The construction and management of private islands was not the company’s first success in the vacation rental industry in Placencia. Vision Properties Belize currently manages a portfolio of high-end oceanfront vacation rentals which offers five-star service and amenities to guests as well as a nice return to the owners. In addition, Vision Properties has also recently added whole ownership oceanfront condos & oceanfront beach lots to its fractional villas & islands offering.
Vision Properties has a strong demand for prime real estate and high-quality construction delivered on schedule in Placencia, Belize. Our vision is to provide the highest quality residences with a low maintenance, flexible ownership model that fits our owners’ desired lifestyle.
Placencia’s untouched beauty and unique mix of pristine beaches and easy access to Belize’s interior with its amazing beauty and adventure activities, provided the basis for Vision Properties formation, to enable others to experience the many unique things Belize has to offer. Since building our first home many years ago, Vision Properties Belize has developed a great construction team and is able to deliver large concrete homes using U.S. quality standards and finish out in as little as six months. Something that to this day is unheard of in Belize. Vision maintains a fully staffed construction division, creating jobs in the Placencia community by providing long-term employment opportunities and construction crews that are trained to U.S. building and safety standards. Vision’s construction division has a full staff of tradesmen (electricians, plumbers, carpenters, HVAC techs), a full-time wood carver for our custom door, furniture, and outdoor furnishings, and on-site superintendents. Vision employs a full time concierge to enhance guests’ experience when they arrive and a full time accountant to ensure construction and portfolio properties meet financial targets. The onsite management staff provides building services such as cleaning and staging for rentals. The management in Texas handles all the rental payment and bookings, to include coordination from an array of websites, including our our rental site GeckoVacations.com, email, and phone inquiries. Vision Properties is a proven turn-key system that meets the owner needs and continuously receives highly rated rental reviews.
Vision Properties offers the most flexible method of ownership, whether it be full-time, part-time or fractional ownership to fit each owner’s unique needs and desires – without any large management fee. Vision Properties has built custom and spec homes for owners looking to make their dream home a reality. Vision specializes in turn key development – starting with raw jungle and leading a design, construction, finish, and management process to create multimillion-dollar residences, complete with interior designer selected layouts and finishes to maintain the highest standards of luxury for our owners. In addition to these advantages, Vision maintains dedicated logistics infrastructure in Texas to include specific building materials, furnishings, logistics, a dedicated interior designer, and back office support (accounting, management system for owners) to anticipate and alleviate issues for owners. Our goal is to have a totally owner-driven model and not be a fee structured development.
