Gecko House was, although smaller than we had anticipated, pleasant, with a nice view of Fish Bay. We were relatively close to Cruz Bay, good restaurants and the North Shore Beaches. Alas, Detliff Point is becoming a gated community and certainly is no longer welcoming to the general public. Should you go, inquire about construction noise. When we were there construction of a very large house was underway not far below our balcony. Andrea did her best to intervene, but not to much avail. Workers came early and stayed late. We felt we should have been warned. The lot next door is also for sale, so more construction may be anticipated. Otherwise, a nice stay.
