You can rest assured you are secure and will be taken extraordinary care of by Sandy. Sandy went above and beyond any expectations--making reservations and driving us to restaurants (she recommended--which were excellent by the way!) each evening and picking us up when we were finished. She helped us set up our driver for the four days we got to spend at Gecko Ridge; and she provided a folder with write ups on many places to see and things to do. She even made tee times for us to golf and took us to the course. Sandy fixed wonderful breakfasts for us at times convenient for our day plans. She was always available if we had concerns (helped us with our converter/adapter plugs) or questions of any kind; but she was never intrusive. A superb hostess and charming place to stay amidst wonderful gardens in a delightful safe and secure setting. I would recommend Gecko Ridge highly; and if ever I get a chance to go to Joberg again, I would return to this cozy little home away from home!
