We just returned from our stay on Great Guana Cay at L'il Gecko. The description "cute, cozy, convenient cottage at an outstanding price" is spot on. L'il Gecko is comfortably furnished and well stocked. The open floor plan and high ceilings make it seem more spacious. The view from the bed in the master is wonderful. We thought the location was perfect. It's close to the settlement, but yet has a private location. Not oceanfront but still great views. So close to a great beach access and the docks on the Sea of Abaco side. On our exploration of the island we didn't see anywhere we would rather stay, especially at the great price. Our most favorite parts of the cottage though are the lovely and extremely private tropical garden, the equally private and lovely outdoor shower and the very comfortably furnished screened porch.
The owners were very helpful prior to our trip. Through email they sent very useful tips and information on the cottage and on Guana Cay. They also answered all our questions quickly and made us feel comfortable and prepared for our trip. The caretaker, Gina, met us at the dock on arrival and showed us the cottage and her husband stopped by to show us how to use the generator. We never needed it though as there was only one power outage and it was short in duration. Gina was also available to answer the couple of questions that arose during our stay. You can call her on the VHF, but we just sent a quick email that was shortly answered.
Our ten days on Guana Cay were during the off-season and we very rarely saw another soul on the beach. Some days we saw NO ONE on the beach all day. We felt like we were on our own private island. There was hardly anyone at any of the restaurants either. I imagine it may be different during the season. The beaches at Guana are definitely it's strong point over the other two cays we visited by boat, Man-o-War and Elbow Cay. Those cays are beautiful too though and worth a visit if you rent a boat. Lots of great snorkeling too. Collin at Dive Guana was very helpful. The owner, Troy was on vacation while we were there.
Go to Great Guana Cay and rent L'il Gecko. You'll be so happy you did.
