Leonie and Roger are the perfect hosts: they take care of your before you arrive in Coffee Bay, give accurate directions to arrive sane and safe. Since we arrive at 7 pm, when the few restaurants were closed they cooked us a basic but superbe supper. Breakfasts are excellent, always with a "gourmet touch", given by Roger, also the cook. They can also suggest where to go, what to do, how to go (take their advice!). Absolutely charming people that make you feel like you know them since ever. The Wild Coast was one of our highlights in our Durban-to-Capetown trip and our stay at Gecko´s contributed a lot to this. Cannot argue with previous reviews here: clean, peaceful, relaxing/relaxed and friendly, absolutely friendly.

Having reached Coffee Bay following the advice "Don't drive on the left of the road but on the road that is left", the Gecko Guest House is the best that can happen to you: a beautiful garden in front of your room, peaceful sleep, and a marvelous breakfast the next morning. All thanks to your incredibly friendly and helpful hosts Leonie and Roger.

A nice, clean, relaxing place to stay. The owners did their best to make life as easy as possible in Coffee Bay. If they could have only changed the weather. Than it would have been perfect.

We had a really good and restful time at Gecko's Guest House in Coffee Bay, Leonie and Roger are great hosts and make everything seem effortless, even though I am sure its not! Our rooms were very comfortable and contained everything we needed. And the meals Roger cooked, well, they come highly recommended!
