Exactly What We Hoped For!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful week! Our girls are still talking about Costa Rica and our 6 year old asks weekly (at least) to go back to your villa to have the EXACT same vacation including your recommended excursions of fishing and horseback riding etc. Your assistance prior to our arrival and for the duration of our stay was so helpful in making our vacation that much more relaxed and enjoyable. Thank you for the hospitality. We certainly hope to be back one day!

It doesn't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Gecko House was the perfect getaway, not far from the beach but the real feeling of being in the jungle with the incredible garden and views of the valleys and hills all around. You will see and hear the family of howler monkeys visiting the garden and see and hear many beautiful birds including the hummingbirds who come visit each morning. This is a little piece of paradise and having stayed at the owners place for two months we really fell in love with Costa Rica. The owners were extremely responsive and ensured there was all the basics needed in the kitchen after arriving from a long flight and were helpful with any issues that came up.

Gecko House's appeal is that it is not in a town and very private, although it’s not far to go and get some provisions to nearby towns. The house is well laid out and is clean and tidy. There are many beautiful beaches nearby including the famous Ostional Beach where the Olive Ridley turtles visit (depending on time of year and moon cycle then you might get lucky to see some action). Plus there a wonderful beach called San Juanillo which has one of the best cafes around called Ancient People which caters to vegetarians too. Playa Guiones is about a 45 minute drive away which caters to all your needs for beginners surfing lessons.

However, some days you won’t want to leave the house because just relaxing in the hammock reading your book with the most spectacular view or swimming in the beautiful pool will be more than enough entertainment.

You could not want for better hosts than Andrea and Monty. They are great about ensuring you have your privacy but always available when you need them. They also have two beautiful and friendly dogs - Cambi and Mucki who will say hello and it will be hard not to fall in love with them.

Gecko House is a wonderful place for a dream vacation in Costa Rica and I cannot recommend it enough!

Beautiful, clean home in a gorgeous spot

  • 5 of 5

Gecko House is a wonderful place to say - it's a recently renovated, beautiful and clean home with anything you might need for your stay. it is nestled in gorgeous forest so you are surrounded by nature, but it is also a short drive from fantastic beaches sp you get the best of both worlds. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful and make sure you feel right at home but there is still complete privacy. They know all the local places (best restaurants, beach destinations etc.) so they can help you plan your visit. The grounds, including a lovely pool, are well kept and lush. We especially enjoyed using the very nice kitchen and relaxing on the patio.

Superschönes Haus in wundervoller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Haben 5 Nächt im Gecko House verbracht und müssen sagen, dass wir so etwas in einer recht abgeschiedenen Lage nicht erwartet hätten. Gecko House ist sehr praktisch und komfortebel ausgestattet. Man findet alles was man braucht, alles ist sauber und sehr gepflegt. Margit und Josef, die sich um Haus und Garten kümmern, sind supernett und hilfsbereit. Leider ist zu dieser Jahreszeit die Strecke sehr staubig, so dass Alles was normalerweise grün ist in einem mehr oder weniger tristen Grau erschient. Beim nächten Mal würden wir eine andere Jahreszeit wählen.

Five fantastic nights in a jungle paradise near San Juanillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

  • 5 of 5

There truly is a gecko living in this house. And howler monkeys close by at all times. The Gecko House is very private and protected. It is essentially in the jungle, but nicely landscaped with lush, tropical flora in the garden areas surrounding the house. The swimming pool is very comfortable and always clean and fresh. The house is clean, and everything works/functions well. There are several beautiful beaches in close proximity (15-30 minutes by car), and major amenities about 20-30 minutes away. I stayed five nights in late December and on most of them a fresh breeze kept the temperature comfortable, though each of the two bedrooms has effective, remote controlled air conditioning. All windows have bug screens, and bugs were really never a problem, at least in December. You can see the ocean from the house, but mostly there is a delightful jungle and open sky view. Andrea (owner) promptly answers her phone and has neighbors who come to help out if anything is needed. There are a dozen or more bats that live outside the house, and in the bodega. I assume it was the howler monkeys who descended from the trees and ate my bananas I had carelessly left outside on the front porch. I would definitely stay here again. I give the Gecko House a score of 5 out of 5, in the rural residential category. My stay there was a very pleasurable experience.

Pure nature with sea view situated between Ostional - reserve for turtles - and San Juanillo. The house is located in the jungle. You can reach the nearby surfing beaches of Nosara or Playa Junquillal within 25 minutes by car. San Juanillo is known for its beautiful beaches. Here you will find pristine nature away from mass tourism. Excursions and activities such as ATV tours, guided horseback riding, bird watching, canoeing, fishing, scuba diving, turtle walks, yoga, boat tours, massage, etc. can be organized locally. The accommodation itself is remote and you need a car (can be hired from us on request). The house offers due to its location dangle a wonderful contrast to the hectic everyday life and you can just leave the soul in the tropical garden and observe monkeys, armadillos, lizards and hummingbirds up close in their natural environment. Nearby is 'Pachamama', an interesting address for meditation lovers. Also the 'Hacienda del Sol' in a few minutes by car (rawfood / massage / cleansing). Local restaurants and sodas for high demands are in the immediate environment. In the unique Cafe 'Anxient people' in San Juanillo one can not only enjoy homemade ice cream and cake, but also browse the spacious shop for clothes, local art and souvenirs. If that's not enough there can be chosen also - from an experienced tattoo-artist from Spain, a souvenir of a different kind.
