Guestbook comments from the manager
We are glad to know that your entire experience at Gecko Loco and on the Island of Roatan was such a positive one. Now you need to go back and do more on your scuba diving. You worked so hard to get your certification. I know the perfect people who can take you out and you will see dolphins and fish you've never seen before.

Thank you for choosing Gecko Loco and trusting that it was the best house on the island. We are so happy that you had the best time.

My husband and I have lived in the Colorado mountains for 20 years. We are self employeed and enjoy the outdoors. After years of living in the cold & snow, we realize that we need some place to go and warm up.

BRAD, RUTH OR SAM AT ISLAND HOUSE purchased this house in 2010

We were pulled into the 'Roatan Vortex' during our first visit in 2010. After staying 1 week, we found this house and fell in love with the island and the location of the house. The people on the island have been very friendly. Everyone we have met have been very helpful & interesting.

The water, snorkeling & diving are the best we've ever experienced.

We love the amazing location of our house on the island. The views are the best we've ever seen from anywhere on the island. The house is not in the middle of all of the tourists area but close enough you can walk or drive to it. The house is in the quiet subdivision the 'Turrets', in West Bay. The community pool is always nice and quiet and the walk to either shore is just a few minutes away.

Nearby are a scooter rental, dvd rentals, coffee house, sandwhich shop and a deli. From West Bay Beach you can take a water taxi and be in West End within 5 minutes.

I came to Roatan with my mom, brother, a couple of aunts and a cousin. My family is from Honduras and it was our first time on the island. From the moment we got off the plane, it was just so beautiful and moving for them all. We arrived at the home and were pleasantly surprised at how clean and welcoming it felt. Also, how stunning the views are from all different angles, how at home we felt with all the comforts we enjoy in the States and all the space to move around and come together at the same time. The area felt very safe to us and the walk from the beach up the hill to the home was hard on my 72 year old aunt at first but by the next day, she was going on strolls and feeling good about it. It was so relaxing and enjoyable for us all. We would love to return again and do it all over again. We got a chance to grill and hang in the pool and lay on the hammocks and just enjoy life. It did rain a couple of the nights we were there but by then it was already evening. It did cause some issues with not having internet a couple of days but we got to walk down and use the WiFi at the property management's office. We are definitely grateful to have stayed in this beautiful home and would love another opportunity of visiting again.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at Gecko Loco (June 8-15) and I can't sing enough praises.

The owners/property managers seemed to have thought of everything, from the well appointed kitchen, the multiple hooks in the bedrooms and bathrooms for hanging swimsuits/towels, the laundry baskets in each bedroom, the flashlights, playing cards, and tons of DVDs, not to mention the wonderful fresh flowers and welcome "amenities" upon arrival.

The views from the decks were absolutely stunning and I found myself wanting to wake up much earlier than my normal vacation persona just to crawl in one of the hammocks. I spent many early morning hours with a book and a breeze before everyone else got up. That view is my "go to" happy place!
But, the views of the sunsets from the other decks are just as amazing. This house has it all!

The drive up is steep, and we laughed every time we drove our compact rental car up the hill. It is steep, but we had no real problems walking up and down from the neighborhood pool.

The house has a security system and safe. We always felt secure in the house and the neighborhood and that meant alot.

We're planning our trip back to Raotan for sometime next year and one of the deciding factors will be the availability of the this house.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your amazing review. Nothing makes us happier than to know that our guest had a great vacation. We fill as many suitcases as allowed every trip, trying to update, make improvements, and make sure that everything is well maintained. We feel spoiled every time we visit, the property management team does everything possible to make it a stress free visit. Wish I could share all our pictures, that constantly remind us of our "go to" HAPPY PLACE. We are always willing to work with return guest, to make sure we earn your business.
Thank you, Mark & Penny

Great views but ...

  • 5 of 5
I submitted a review on Feb 4, 2013 on Gecko loco. At that time I gave it a 4 out of 5 rating. After considerable thought I have decided to raise this to a 5 out of 5 rating. The reason for this change is the effort that the owners took to take care of their tenants. that was not the case for the other property we rented the previous week

Owner's Response: Thank You for your feedback, we always take everyones input very seriously. We have replaced, and purchased some new items for the house based on your input. We really appreciate all comments, and suggestions and do whatever possible to assure everyone an unforgettable stay.

It can be a challenge from so far away, but are very lucky to have such an amazing support team/property managers on the Island.

Great view BUT....

  • 4 of 5
This is a very nice home, built recently, nicely finished with two excellent sized bdrms with private bath, one "kids" rm on top, and an extra full bath on main floor. The appliances are all in good working order. The cookware and linens are superb. Two full balconies give outstanding views. The real estate company in charge of it has excellent people who never hesitated to help us.
But there is a drawback, it is a 20 minute walk to the beach, unless you're an olympic athlete. This is a house where you really need a car, or are willing to pay for taxis. The final driveway up to the house is about the length of a city block and is VERY steep. Not for anyone with walking problems or very young children. The steep road puts you at the top of the hill, hence the great views.
The beach which is nearest is WEST BAY, one of the prettiest beaches I've ever seen, with restaurants and dive shops, nothing really to buy other than very poor T-shirts; BUT the snorkelling is very nice. We never went to the community swimming pool, its at the bottom of the steep driveway and no one else was ever there.
Attractions other than diving, snorkelling or sunbathing are all about 10-30 minutes away by car.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reply, we love receiving feedback from renters, and try very hard to maintain the house and make sure our guests are comfortable. We use the trail down to West Bay every time we visit the Island, it is well cleared, and not more than a 7 min walk down. Often on our return, we walk up by Key Hole, cut through an open field, and along the Iron shore making for a longer walk but much easier climb up. The Turrets is a very quiet neighborhood, the community pool is shared with about 14 part time residents. You often feel like you are the only person around. Very seldom will you see a neighbor, or anyone in the pool. We use the pool all the time, and enjoy the solitude. We encourage everyone to rent a car while on the island, while it is possible to spend a week in West Bay, there is so much more to see and enjoy on the Island (West End, Parks, Zip lines, Beaches, Diving, Snorkeling and shopping). There is not one location on the Island that gives you easy access to all, everything can be a 10-30 min drive regardless of where you stay on the Island. We Love the Island, the people, and the community, we hope that you had a fantastic trip, and hope that you return to Roatan.

Stunning views, quiet location, perfect place to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5
Gecko Loco is a pristine property, with all of the comforts of home plus more. Wake up every morning to unbelievable, unobstructed sunrises over the mainland. Watch the cruise ships move in and out of the without experiencing the crush of tourists.

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood setting, situated perfectly on a ridge to capture the best views and sun rays off the South and North shores of Roatan. The interior, decks and bedroom suites provided comfort and ample space that easily accommodated our group of 6, without ever feeling cramped or intrusive into each others space. The kitchen is well stocked and don't miss the welcome package to get your 'vacation' started.

Within 10 mins of the property are two shores with pristine beaches and all that any traveler would want on a beach vacation. Not to be missed: the snorkeling, diving and of course a few drinks on the beach.

Hurry and book now to experience Roatan as it becomes an 'it' destination as highlighted by Forbes as one of the 5 remarkably affordable travel destinations for 2013. Can't wait for our return trip.

Perfect get away home! Beautiful views, balconies and home.

  • 5 of 5
Gecko Loco is a beautiful home located in the perfect setting. The views are breath taking and the moon light shining on the bay doesn't get any better! The house feels like home and has everything you could possibly need. The home is in a nieghborhood setting that gives you the safe feeling of home, but is very private with views of both the north and south side of the island. The snorkeling at the end of the road at Smugglers is absolutely the best and just a 10 minute walk away. The property managers are very close and extremely helpful with any questions you may have. (directions, places to eat, where to snorkel, etc.) We had a fantastic vacation and can't wait to get back to Roatan and the Gecko Loco.
