I really like this place! Service, security, rooms, location, Design!!! Food, how they accept requests, peacocks, sport gym, swimming pool and also atmosphere! I felt like at home. 15 minutes as I can be in the middle of Swakopmund town. There s a stable with horses (2 minutes drive)as well!

The pictures on the website do not do justice to this place. You truly have to see and experience it for yourself. Gecko Ridge is beautiful, the environment and scenery has been labored with love. The staff provided us with good service, the meals were succulent, although the breakfast could improve on the variety on a day to day basis....

We were very suprised at how well equipped and maintained the self catering units are. We were greeted by a very helpful host who was very welcoming. I was very doubtful about the location but once i settled in, it felt like home. Added to my favourites as a definite second home away from home.

We stayed in the self-catering chalets of Gecko Ridge. We had a family room that was well equiped, clean and cozy. We would definitely love to stay there again on our next trip. Things to improve: extend wi-fi to all the chalets, keep mops in the bathroom for guests to clean bathroom after use (for the next family member can't...

Gecko Lodge is a little way out of Swakopmund but the roads are good and the drive only takes about 15 minutes in traffic so it really is convenient. The self catering chalets are modern, really large and very well appointed in terms of furniture, linen, crockery etc. Private back garden with built in braai and outside furniture make it...

Nice self catering units in the middle of the desert. Beautiful house, lovely braai boma, something different! Take lovely walks in the desert, among beautiful countryside. View a million stars at night, after a breathtaking sunset!

We enjoyed our night's stay at Gecko Ridge. They did accommodate us with breakfast early the morning (at 06:00) as we had to leave early. The rooms are very tidy and neat as well as the property. Thank you Gecko Ridge.

We made use of the self-catering units and we had a very good time since we traveled with my medium size dog. We had a nice size garden to ourselves and safe parking and fully kitted out unit. It's only 10-15 min drive outside Swakopmund, and this ensures quiet and peacefulness.
