Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Geckoes is owned and managed by husband and wife team, Tom Keller & Zoë Courtier. With backgrounds in hospitality education and tourism and extensive international experience we decided it was time for a new adventure. Ably assisted by caretaker team Jose & Neris, Geckoes Lodge is the culmination of a two year project to create private and luxurious holiday accommodation whilst maintaining the beauty and minimising the impact on the surrounding rainforest and its inhabitants. Geckoes was so named to symbolise the symbiotic relationship possible between wildlife and humans. With a commitment to Sustainable development, eco-friendly practices and environmental consciousness our operating practices and the houses have been designed to fit the landscape rather than vice versa. We look forward to welcoming you at Geckoes and helping to make your holiday unforgettable.
Why the Owner Chose Cocles, Costa Rica:
The Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is for us the perfect place to be. Here we have everything we could wish for; a spectacular property, beautiful nature, a warm sea and a fantastic climate. What we don't have is high-rise buildings and big developments but plenty of individually owned restaurants and businesses with a great mix of nationalities. At Geckoes you can feel 'away from it all' yet be within easy reach of all amenities. It's a place to unwind, relax, enjoy the spectacular rainforest surroundings and wildlife.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Being just 1km off the main road, we can feel as if we are miles from anywhere but in fact we are within easy reach of everything. World-class beaches and marvellous and affordable restaurants are just around the corner. This is what most people would consider living the Caribbean life but we have the rainforest as well! With the rainforest comes the wildlife and we regularly see Howler monkeys, toucans, parrots and the magnificent Blue Morpho butterflies from our veranda. Geckoes is a gorgeous piece of rainforest that we are lucky enough to be able to call Home. We look forward to sharing this remarkable place with you.
