VRBO Bear stayed here:
If you’re planning the perfect Costa Rican vacation look no further than Geckoe’s Lodge, Casa Bromelia. This bear couple on their honeymoon was spoiled with luxury accommodations in a private rainforest paradise. We were greeted by our friendly hosts Tom and Zoe, who have spared no expense in creating an eco-friendly abode with views that will take your breath away. A thoughtful fruit basket with Costa Rican snacks and a delicious pineapple along with a bottle of champagne were set out to celebrate the occasion.
The impeccable attention to detail makes Casa Bromelia a true home away from home. A fully stocked kitchen, cell phone with necessary numbers, helpful travel guides and daily cleaning ensured we had a relaxing vacation. The hammocks also helped, it was amazing to see toucans and the beautiful blue morpho butterfly from the front porch. This beautiful, large, 2 bedroom home has an open concept layout that provides rainforest views at almost every turn. The master bedroom is absolutely perfect with a very comfortable bed, seating and a spacious bathroom.
The natural light peering through the windows started off our day as we explored the many beaches of the Caribbean coast, visited the Jaguar Rescue Center (baby howler monkeys crawling all over us!),a relaxing couples massage at Indulgence spa and shopped in Puerto Viejo. For a truly unforgettable meal visit La Pecora Nera which is a scenic little walk from the property. We enjoyed a perfectly seasoned and seasonal tasting menu in a romantic open air setting. After our active days we looked forward to arriving at the secluded oasis and taking a dip in the plunge pool.
There is so much to do, see and enjoy in this area that 6 days wasn’t enough and we’re already planning a return trip! I haven’t hesitated in recommending this home to my family and friends. This was the most memorable and relaxing vacation these bears could have ever hoped for.

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 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,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.
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 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.
