The Gecko Bungalow was the perfect way to start our new life in Belize. We arrived, cleared customs and Michelle picked us up at the airport. She immediately made us feel as if we have known her forever. Fresh mangoes awaited us, along with her husband Scott, who gave our teenage son a lesson on mango slicing. These guys are... More

The hosts are great and really knowledgeable about the area and all the things to do. Feels like you will never want to leave it is so comfortable. Good access to the city and the other islands on the water taxi but still out of the way enough to be quiet and homey.

Just got back from 10 days in Belize, staying at the Gecko Bungalow. Enjoyed it very much. Comfortable beds. Screens, which are great. Sounds weird to mention but even if they are absolutely necessary, surprisingly, in Mexico and Central America, most people don't have them. They provided drinking water every day, which was really nice! Michelle welcomed us with open... More

On my first trip to Belize a few friends and I stayed at the Gecko Bungalow. Scott and Michelle, the owners, were absolutely great at making us feel at home and even met us out to have some fun! Scott went beyond expectations by helping us set for an event and provided some good advice about Belize. I recommend the... More

I recently stayed at the Gecko Bungalow in Belize and was hosted by the owners Scott and Michelle - great folks! Their place is just minutes from the airport and very inviting and clean! I was given a tour of Belize City & Northern Belize where we ended up in "Ship Yard", a very old Mennonite community well worth seeing.... More

I have been to Belize 5 times now and have stayed in many places but the Gecko Bungalow was by FAR the best place I've stayed at! Scott and Michelle are the absolute best, so sweet and friendly and it really feels like home. Scott is quite the artist when it comes to the fruit platter as well! The rooms... More

A friend referred me to "The Gecko Bungalow" and decided to check them out on Facebook. The pics and reviews were so amazing I had to check it out for myself. When I arrived in... More

Nice place to stay Scott & Michelle are great hosts and provide a clean and comfortable place. They picked us up at the airport and helped us navigate our way around. Would definitely stay again. If traveling to Belize this is a great place to stay overnight.
