About Tom & Zoe

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 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

Why Tom & Zoe chose Limon

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,spectacular beaches, 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.

What makes this villa unique

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 can regularly see Howler monkeys, toucans, parrots and the magnificent Blue Morpho butterflies from our veranda.

Geckoes is a beautiful piece of rainforest that we are lucky enough to be able to call home. We look forward to sharing this unique place with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My kids cannot stop talking about this place!! Kaia (turned 5 at Geckoes) and Andrew (age 7) LOVED all the wildlife noises and the beautiful birds, bugs and creatures around this property. Everything you needed was there - well equipped kitchen for cooking just caught fish (call Wahoo Fishing for a charter), comfortable beds with netting, and the greatest location for a hammock one can imagine. Tom and Zoe are delightful hosts!

Unbelievable!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 nights in Casa Bromelia and absolutely loved it! The entire property is beautiful. It was really incredible sharing the rainforest with howler monkeys and toucans. The owners, Tom and Zoe are great people. They were amazing hosts and really made every effort to make our stay a memorable one. Thanks to Jose and Tita who did a great job keeping the place clean. An awesome place in a really beautiful part of the country.
