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 entry, small eating area and bedroom in one large room with an enclosed bathroom with big shower. The screened porch with table & chairs and comfy furniture is the length of the unit; we had meals there and hung out there most of the time. The clothes line is handy; we washed our swimming stuff and hung it out there along with occasional laundry; no washer and dryer are available.
The apartment has complete visual privacy, which we loved. Note that the main house is connected to the apartment by a small patio with lattice screening so we occasionally heard people but it didn't bother us.
Four wheel drive is a must.
