About Brad or Ruth AT ISLAND HOUSE Roatan

Mark and I have lived in the Colorado mountains for 20 years. We love every minute we can spend at Gecko Loco. After years of living in the cold & snow, we realize that we need some place to go and warm up.

Brad or Ruth AT ISLAND HOUSE Roatan purchased this house in 2010

Why Brad or Ruth AT ISLAND HOUSE Roatan chose Bay Islands Honduras

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 and fishing are the best we've ever experienced.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Very Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

The house was up on a hill with a very nice view of the ocean. It has pretty much everything you'll need such as cooking, eating, towels and etc. Shanna and Ryan are very friendly and helplful as well. The pool was always empty so we had it to ourselves pretty much the whole time. I would definitely recommend renting a car because the walk to the beach, stores and restaurants is a little tough. The house is up on a hill so walking back up is not easy. Overall the house was very nice and clean, I highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 Star review and for letting everyone know how much you enjoyed GECKO LOCO 😎. We understand about “the hill”. Hope you weren’t misled about whether needing a car or not. It’s hard to predict everyone’s needs or wants. But your information is helpful for future guests. You are correct, that Shanna & Ryan are very helpful. They make an awesome team and are a great asset to Island House. Thank you again. Mark & Penny

Dream Vacation at the Gecko Loco house in Roatan

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable, that pretty much explains our vacation at the Gecko Loco house and our week in Roatan.

Thanks so much to Penny, Mark for sharing their beautiful home with us and to Ryan for smoothly setting up our trip, car and fun things to do.

Iit’s truly a week we will never forget !. Amazing home with incredible views of the ocean and untouched landscape, the birds chirping every morning was so nice and the hammocks were especially comfy and relaxing from fun days at West Bay Beach. The sunrises were spectacular each morning and the sea breeze was just perfect while sipping rum punch on the deck.

Can’t wait to stay at the Gecko again soon !

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review, kind words and simply taking the time to write the nice review. It’s always great to hear that people love Gekco Loco as much as we do. You are welcomed back any time. We love return guests and always willing to make a deal. We loved that you thought it was “unbelievable”. We can’t believe it either sometimes. Our property managers at Island House are the best and it’s good to hear that they and Ryan helped you settle in. We take pride in continuing to make improvements where needed. Sounds like you got some great R&R in the hammocks. Please remember us for your return trip. There’s lots of thanks for all of the great people whom have helped make Gecko Loco what it is today. Mark & Penny

Beautiful Home and Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week once again in Roatan! Thank you Mark and Penny and Property Managers for opening this beautiful home up to some many. This is our third time staying at the Gecko Loco and it feels more and more like home each time. It is so nice to come back and the house is maintained just as beautiful as the first time we were here 3 years ago. We have shared our secret with as many as possible in hopes that they too can have a wonderful vacation while enjoying so many amenities like at home. The views are spectacular from all the decks. Lying in the hammocks make it even that more enjoyable!!! We look forward to our next visit and bringing more family and friends with us!

It has always been our priority that everyone feels welcome and at home when they visit Geco Loco. Mark and Penny

From a Honduran-American's perspective

  • 5 of 5

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

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.
