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 !
I enjoyed the gecko house it was nice and clean. The air works just make sure you turn it n early enough before you sleep otherwise it's almost too hot especially if not used durin day. We mostly opened Windows and doors around 11. As we were gone a lot or hung out on the back porch. I found the stairs a little tricky and was not comfortable using them in the dark. The tv only works with provided DVDs so I would suggest bring your own DVDs or way to hook to the tv. Wasn't a problem as we used the music app and laced it into a bowl to use as a speaker. The only other problem was no hot water in the shower which was a maintence problem that wasn't fixed when we were there. I would go there again. It I would take spices and speakers and my video adapter. Also it takes 20 minutes to get to the. Each walking we would go through grace bay. And bikes are provided.
We rented a car, which I recommend highly if you want to see the ends of the island. Taxi is expensive. The location to Grace Bay is fantastic, but we were so glad to see the whole island during our stay. My husband and I just turned forty, we came alone and loved the quietness and beauty. We were grateful for the wifi, stayed up late watching movies at night and the streaming was great. We used the bbq a couple times and was glad to have the option to dine in. We rode the bikes to the beach one evening. We attended the beautiful LDS church on Sunday and were delighted it was only a few miles away. Overall, we are very happy with our choice to stay at the Gecko house. My one and only suggestion would be to upgrade the air conditioning unit(s). We would have been more comfortable if we could have escaped the humid temperatures. Thanks Gecko house for a wonderful, very special memory!

The Lovely Gecko House was just perfect for our first anniversary trip to TCI! It was just as described by Nathaly & as shown in photos. The location was perfect, as it was a 2 minute bike ride to closest beach and very accessible to other restaurants & activities in the area. We loved riding the bikes! The kitchen was stocked with more than we anticipated & we really felt at home. Wi-fi service was excellent at the residence. Nathaly was very kind and personable and a great help to any questions we had. I would definitely revisit & recommend to others looking for a quaint and quiet getaway!
