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.
Tom & Zoe purchased this villa in 2006
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.
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.
We had an amazing honeymoon adventure. Great house with a wonderful private pool surrounded by animals and nature. Tom and Zoe are very nice and helpful. We loved our stay and recommend Geckoes Lodge to everyone who loves nature!
Stayed in Casa Del Bosque. Four nights and had a wonderful time. Secluded and quiet in a fantastic setting. Recommend for couples. Tom and Zoe have a fantastic property to offer.
Geckoes Lodge is absolutely stunning! We stayed seven nights in the one bedroom house, Casa Del Bosque.
The Property: The houses are all set apart throughout the lush grounds of the property and you really do feel like you have the place all to yourselves. The landscaping is well cared for but not overly manicured with well placed and beautiful flowers, palms, and tropical trees surrounding the houses. This allows wildlife to be near the houses so you can see howler monkeys, birds and lizards from your patio. Tom and Zoe have managed to strike a wonderful balance between the sterility of some large resorts and the 'carved from the jungle' feel of some cheaper places.
The house: The house was immaculate when we arrived. It has just enough space for two to be comfortable and cozy yet not on top of each other should you be rained in. There are hammocks hung for reading in, a comfortable couch and chairs and a dinning table in the living area. The kitchen has a gas cooktop, a full sized fridge and most of the cooking wares and utensils you would need to do about anything.
One caveat is the lodge is not directly on the beach rather around 1 Km away so this is not the place for you if you just want to step out of your room and onto the sand. The advantage to this is you are not near the busy and noisy coastal road so you really are secluded and in the quiet of the jungle. I would recommend renting bikes, a scooter, or planning your day around the 30 minute walk into town.
The Food: The great thing about having a kitchen on hand is not needing to eat out every meal. To that end, there are several markets in town with a pretty wide selection. We frequently bought fresh fish at Mopri's. There are also many good restaurants in town with an array of choices, we recommend Caribeans at Om Cafe, Lazlo's and Veronica's Cafe.
Activities: We recommend the Chocolate tour at Caribeans, Zip-lining with Terradventures, and the Jaguar Rescue Center. All great fun.
