The hosts are amazing and make the stay very pleasant. The room is great and the breakfast even better. The personal treatment given made us feel at home. The guesthouse includes several rooms but only one was redone into a lovely apartment... Ask for it!

Leonie and Roger are kind, generous, amazing hosts. They make it their top priority that your visit to coffee bay will be a great one and include everything you want to get out of it. Their place is pretty, homey and welcoming. Very good location. Just prepare yourselves for the lack of wi fi After walking around coffee bay there... More

Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you Roger and Leonie for a memorable stay. Received the most friendly reception and again the same warmth at departure. We left with fond memories of both of you and we will definitely visit again.

We travelled extensively across South Africa and stayed in all sorts of places. Gecko's really stands out for us though. Roger and Leonie really made us feel welcome and at home. I felt as if we had made friends, even though we only stayed there for 2 nights. The room is simple, but warm and comfortable, giving you everything you... More

Geckos is a great place to stay in Coffee Bay - we were there for just a night, but Roger and Leonie couldn't have been more helpful - nothing seemed to be too much trouble, from preparing a very early morning breakfast, to giving advice and even taking group photos! The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms clean and with... More

Much like other reviewers here, we were very happy with our choice of Geckos, but a bit disappointed by Coffee Bay in general. Roger and Leonie were wonderful hosts and Roger was especially helpful with driving directions before we arrived. Breakfast was fresh and delicious and the care taken to prepare it was evident. The room was comfortable and had... More

We stayed at Gecko Guest House B&B for four nights in October 2013. We enjoyed our stay at Gecko's and particularly the hospitality of the hosts. The room we stayed in was nice, the bathroom was simple but totally fine. The breakfast was great and included also some variety e.g. if we didn't want eggs, Leonie prepared something else for...

We stayed in a self catering unit at Gecko Guest House for two nights as a stop over on our way to Durban from Port Elizabeth. We chose Gecko's as they were number 1 on Tripadvisor, away from rowdy backpackers and the reviews highlighted Roger and Leonie's helpfulness (which they definitely lived up to.) We travelled to Coffee Bay on... More

Thank you to Roger and Leonie for providing a clean comfortable bed, their warm attention, personalized care and focus on small details made our stay pleasurable and homely, not to mention the wonderfully cooked and presented breakfast !
