Would Do It All Again!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Gecko House on Turks & Caicos (TCI). The screened in porch was great. We spent most of our time on the porch enjoying the Caribbean breezes when we weren't out enjoying the Island. The owner was very comprehensive and timely with his communication which was very helpful leading up to our trip. The home provided most everything that you would need.....well thought out. The on-island contact person was pleasant and helpful during our stay.
The Gecko house is well situated in the Grace Bay Beach area. We could easily walk to the beach, grocery store, bars/restaurants and the Grace Bay shopping area. However I would recommend renting a car for your stay. Rental rates were reasonable from Avis by the Airport. Driving on the left side of the road was not bad, as traffic is not too heavy and TCI drivers are mostly courteous.
TCI was great. We enjoyed the Grace Bay beaches, restaurants and bars on the beach, a sunset cruise by Island Routes, Kayaking with Big Blue in the mangroves, Chaulk Sound and snorkeling at Bight Beach (Coral Gardens). Grace Bay Beaches were very nice. Would do it all again. Thank you to the Gecko House and the TCI.
Thank you so much for this excellent and detailed review. Excellent guests like you are our greatest reward for our hard work making our guests excellent vacation experience.
Now looking for a job. Lol
Was a great little cottage! Was about a 10-15 min walk to the beautiful beach and along the way was a cute little place called Jacks Fountain! If you are staying longer than 3-4 days save your grocery bags because we were only given 2 bags for a week! 🤭� but overall was a great place!
Wonderful little house with everything you need and close to everything
The house was very clean and the perfect size for 2. The screened porch was the best place to hang out, with no AC needed out there. The stove was not working, but everything else in the kitchen was great. We cooked for ourselves most meals. Even when the whole island had a power outage, the hot water still worked and if we had a lighter we could have cooked as well. The bedroom had its own AC that was perfect for sleeping.
The only downside was the sheets were a little rough on the skin and it would have been nice to have a water filter or water service for drinking water. I just hate buying throw away jugs. Also, would be nice to have a line for drying wetsuits and towels, maybe on the porch?
Otherwise, it was a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, dive shop, and grocery. It was a quiet street with geckos and birds. What a great stay! I definitely recommend this place.
Hi there! thank you for taking the time to write this nice review, really appreciated! For the benefit of future guests, I will clarify some of your points: the stove is working, the oven is not; this is a new appliance and as merchant and gas company could not fix the problem (high flames in the oven), we thought safer to simply ask guests not to use it as we provide a BBQ. Well noted for the sheets, I will ask our cleaning lady to make sure to use softener as all laundry is going on the line to dry (yes, there is a long line on the side of the house). Again, we will make sure future guests are made aware of your recommendations and we will improve gladly! Our reviews on our main house That Lovely Gecko House point in that direction (well, on another listing site). Glad you liked our house and enjoyed your vacations! Kind regards, Nathaly & Jacques
