The quiet neighborhood is in a perfect location to explore the Grace Bay area. We rode the bikes everywhere we went during the day, only taking a taxi to go to dinner twice. Once to Mango Reef(very good!) and to the Thursday Fish Fry(lot of fun, good food!) The bikes where in good condition and worked just fine for us during our stay. One thing to consider though, if you are on the short side the bikes were both "male". My wife did have some trouble because of this. Nathaly(the owner) did tell me in an email that they are looking to get a 'female" bike to help with this. There are plenty of bike rental places if they haven't had a chance to get one by the time you stay here and you should stay here!
The house itself is awesome! It looked just like the pictures on here and was exactly as described. The entire property is very well maintained.
Clean inside and out, open both sliding doors and get a great breeze through the house, the porch is great for hanging out, eating, having a cup of coffee or a cocktail, the A/C worked just fine for us at night, the shower was great, the outside lighting at night was very good.
To wrap it up, the Gecko House was exactly what we were looking for and would absolutely recommend it!
We stayed at That Lovely Gecko House for 5 days in March 2017. The owners were very prompt and helpful answering any questions about booking and places to go. The amenities were great. Location was perfect to get to the Grace Bay beach public parking quickly. The house and inclusions are exactly as it is described. I have already recommended this location to my closest friends and family.
We recently got back from a relaxing week at that lovely gecko house. The house is located within a 5 to 10 minute walk of shops and restaurants/bars along the beach. We rented a car and drove the ~ 20 to 25 minute drive to some of the beaches other than grace bay (sapodilla bay, leeward, and taylor bay). If you dont want to rent a car, grace bay is a few minutes away from the house. In the afternoon we would return and open all of the windows and sliding doors and a lovely breeze would flow through the house. Each of us would take a spot on a couch or the screened in porch and read all afternoon. We made dinner each night in the kitchen which had ANYTHING that you could possibly need to prepare food sandwich bags, tupperware, pizza sheet, utensils, etc. (Note: just keep all of your food in the fridge as suggested, even if it is not open). And then would walk down to one of the restaurants or beach bars for a drink and to watch the sunset. They also just updated their shower and it was the best shower we have had at any island house that we have stayed at. We really could have stayed here and not returned home. We will definitely be back in the future!
This house was beyond lovely, clean & inviting. The ideal spot to settle so we could have adventures all over Provo & North & Middle Caicos. We rented a car, which I recommend, but it's a short walk or bike ride to the beach. Nathaly was very accommodating & helpful & we enjoyed our stay immensely. Thank you again!
Gecko House was exactly as pictured and described. Clean & well equipped. We loved riding the bikes to the grocery store close by and short distance to the beach. If we weren't still at the beach for sunset we were sipping Pina Coladas on the deck. A wonderful, relaxing vacation in the beautiful TCIs. Thank you Nathaly & Jacques!
This was my second year booking "That Lovely Gecko House" . This year I brought a 12 year old friend to experience Turks and Caicos. The Owners Jacques and Nathaly were in residence next door and as usual, so welcoming, helpful and cheerful ! Their caretaker, Getho, climbed the many coconut palms surrounding the houses and supplied us with a weeks worth of fresh coconut water as requested by the 12 year old. The house is well cared for, immaculate, lovely linens, comfortable bed and the best equipped kitchen ! 5 Star shower and Internet ! Great value and location. Bicycles and beach chairs are a plus provided by the Owners ! Stroll over to Coco Bistro's new venue Coq Vin for gourmet food truck Fare. ( actually an airstream trailer) no reservations needed !
