Away from the main road with a great jungle view the Gecko House welcomes you with a mixed blend of European comfort with typical local elements in a striking design. Comfortably situated on the upper floor are two bedrooms with sea views and A / C and a bathroom. An open, fully equipped kitchen with original bar and a cozy living area are waiting for you. The private pool surrounded by tropical plants a great place to relax. The magnificent tropical garden with fruit trees and bananas can be enjoyed from the terrace - or you simply relax in a hammock and watch the hummingbirds, and all the other animals. We do not have internet in the house but there are many locations with wifi in the area. Who does not want to hitch a ride needs a 4 x 4 car to go around the area. Car Rental and ATV Rental is possible.

The house is about 10 minutes drive up into the hills from the coast road (160) and provides a very private peaceful place to relax. Our kids (5 and 8) loved the pool of course, which...

We very much enjoyed our stay in the Gecko House. Andrea and Monty are a very nice couple and get the balance right between being invisible but available when you need them. The house is comfortable and clean - we slept very well. The pool was great for cooling off after one of our long morning walks. The area is...

Gecko House was the perfect getaway, not far from the beach but the real feeling of being in the jungle with the incredible garden and views of the valleys and hills all around. You will see and hear the family of howler monkeys visiting the garden and see and hear many beautiful birds including the hummingbirds who come visit each...
