We are a very active couple (age mid-50s).This was our first visit to St John and we did not know where to rent and we got so lucky that Gecko house was available for our dates. Everything was good about it. The owner thought about every detail to make our stay comfortable. We were very touched to find a bottle...

Gecko House is a small apartment attached to a house in the hills of Fish Bay. Although Fish Bay is not a swimming/snorkel spot the view from the screened porch of the Gecko House rental is calm, quiet and beautiful, often with sailboats moored in the bay. The apartment has everything a couple needs for a get-away; full kitchen on...

We had a wonderful time. Everything about the Gecko House was perfect. It was quiet and peaceful. You can watch the sun rise from your bed each morning. We loved the jacuzzi, a perfect end to a hard day of snorkeling. Andrea was very kind. She gave us lots of good advice on places to visit and dine. Many thanks....

Neatly tucked away on a hillside overlooking Fish Bay, this cute,clean and affordable piece of paradise had everything we needed to feel at home while exploring.

Had a great stay at the Gecko house. Was only there for a quick get away with my gf, but really enjoyed it. Felt like we had a very authentic experience in St. John. Didnt have to wake up and be surrounded by tourists. Was worried Trunk Bay would be a bit of confusing drive, but it was not at...

My wife & I chose to stay at Gecko House for our honeymoon in Oct 2009; it was an excellent choice for us. (I meant to write this review sooner.) If you want time alone away from the crowds, with a beautiful view of a secluded St John bay, and good access to the amenities of the island, this will...

Both rooms with their own bathrooms are separated by a deck, giving private time to each couple. One room has the kitchen and a view of the Caribbean waters below from a nice sized enclosed deck. The other room, on a lower enclosed deck, has a mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and is surrounded by the natural, delightful sights and...

: We stayed at the Gecko House when we were in St. John in the Spring of 2009. The location is a little out of the way. You need to rent a car to go around the island and go into town. The room is a bit small with a little dining table. There is also an arm chair by...

We enjoyed our stay at Gecko House. The view was beautiful and our host was very helpful. My kids loved having their own "separate apartment" -- so did I for that matter. The location was convenient to Cruz Bay and beaches. We loved the July 4th Festival and hope we can return for another visit.
