About the property

The Gecko House is between Briggs, Killeen and Georgetown Texas

The house is 15 minutes from the Killeen airport. The well maintained and clean rental sits behind the original 100+ year old home and offers deck side views of sunsets, whitetail deer and grazing cattle. Weather beaten barns present optimum photo backdrops, complete with windmill in the background.

Perch jump on your hook from the stock tank, while lazy bass flick a fin and retreat to the willows. Bring your binoculars for a view of the black bucks in a neighbor's pasture and relax with your coffee on the deck of the rental home or the hot tub on the main house's patio. Towering pecan trees shade the main yard while ancient live oaks offer haven for a quiet resting spot.

This is not a fancy place! It's a small, working cattle ranch, a getaway from city noises. A place where you can view the stars through the furnished telescope and listen to the frogs croaking in the night air. The perfect spot for visiting your soldier at Ft Hood. Or for bringing your soldier off the Army base into the country for a few days.

Want to write your novel and need the house for a longer period of time? Give us a call and we can talk about week/month rates. Owners are proud to share what they've spent a lifetime building.

Go home rested, and wondering when you can return to the Gecko House.

Amazing, relaxing, beautiful, clean, comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a amazing place about 20 minutes from Ft Hood. The best part of this incredible place is the most wonderful hostess ever! We really hate to leave.

The beds are super comfortable... the house configuration is very convenient.

We had the best vacation ever... and our soldier was able to spend time with us and relax before being deployed.

Located between Briggs, Florence and Killeen Texas.
