Honeymoon in Paradise
Submitted: December 18, 2011
Stayed: December 2010
My husband and I stayed at the Gecko House for one week right after Thanksgiving. We were extremely comfortable staying at the Gecko house, although small, pictures accurately reflect the villa. Gecko House was clean and tidy, and if you want to cook we recommend you bring/buy staples (seasoning, oil) We loved the lush garden below where we enjoyed a juicy ripe papaya one morning. Andrea has a great selection of books which provided great information about St. John. We found that renting a Jeep was necessary to explore the island as it's extremely hilly and 4WD is needed. The driveway up to Gecko house was easy to drive up with 4WD. 10 Minute drive to Cruz Bay was easy and about 25 minutes to Coral Bay. The only gas station on the island is in Cruz Bay. If you're looking for a cool sports pub, check out Skinny Legs in Coral Bay and you can get some great vegetarian food a Rhumb Lines in Cruz Bay. For the money, Gecko House is an excellent value!
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: I enjoyed having you as my Gecko House guests. It is always fun to see the island and Gecko House from the guest's point of view. I hope to see you again on St. John, in Fishbay and at Gecko House. Warm holiday greetings from your friends at Gecko House!
