My wife and I spent two weeks on St. John, with a week in Coral Bay and a week at Gecko House. As small as the island is, we had totally different experiences and both were totally enjoyable. Gecko House was a perfectly comfortable home and Andrea and Joel were wonderful hosts. We especially appreciated the close easy access to... More

Gecko house is gorgeous! It is perfectly equipped with everything you may need to feel right at home. You really get a true sense of what it must be like to live on the island. I also cannot say enough good things about Andrea and Doug! From the time we arrived in St. John, to the time we left they... More

My girlfriend and I lucked out in finding this little gem on St. John. Gecko House was our home base for five days while we explored the islands trails, bays and beaches. Andrea, the owner, was so nice and super helpful if we had questions about the apartment or the island. The apartment itself had everything we needed - and... More

This was an amazing trip for my wife and I. We came here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and had a completely amazing time. Make sure you connect with The Whistler if you want someone local who can show you all the best food and snorkeling spots; also, if you like good music, then you will love his folksy... More

My husband and I just took our honeymoon on St. John. Neither of us had been before, and we had a wonderful experience at Gecko House on our first trip. The villa is nestled up on the mountain with a beautiful view of Fish Bay from the screened in porch, where we drank our coffee every morning. The area around... More

This place is amazing and really one of the best values on the entire island. I would not stay anywhere else. For me and my wife there is a delicate balance that you want to find for a vacation rental. We want a place that is comfortable enough that you enjoy staying there, but not too expensive that you feel... More

We are a very active couple (age mid-50s).This was our first visit to St John and we did not know where to rent and we got so lucky that Gecko house was available for our dates. Everything was good about it. The owner thought about every detail to make our stay comfortable. We were very touched to find a bottle... More

Gecko House is a small apartment attached to a house in the hills of Fish Bay. Although Fish Bay is not a swimming/snorkel spot the view from the screened porch of the Gecko House rental is calm, quiet and beautiful, often with sailboats moored in the bay. The apartment has everything a couple needs for a get-away; full kitchen on... More

We had a wonderful time. Everything about the Gecko House was perfect. It was quiet and peaceful. You can watch the sun rise from your bed each morning. We loved the jacuzzi, a perfect end to a hard day of snorkeling. Andrea was very kind. She gave us lots of good advice on places to visit and dine. Many thanks.... More
