The Unique Benefits of this Cottage
The weather is beautiful here and the cottage gets great breezes all year round which is why our property has three decks and two large sliding doors. Our full size kitchen and lofted bedroom gives the cottage extra space and all the luxuries that you have in your own home. Most of our time is spent on the fully furnished outside mosquito-free veranda enjoying the breezes and quiet island life. This house is so airy we barely use the a/c!!!!

This little (most suitable for couples, or solo traveller) house is quite charming and is perfectly located for either an "all-action" island holiday, or a totally inactive "retreat". It's well screened, so I never had any problems with mosquitos. The island has many wonderful restaurants nearby, but the house is also provided with a gas barbecue so one can easily self-cater as and when. A hire car (do pre-book) is essential, but two bicycles are also provided which are a fun a way to explore and/or get some exercise. The house is well equipped with plates, glasses, kitchen basics - and of course wifi. The house is down a quiet lane with a couple of properties on either side, but not too close. I felt totally safe in this location - and on the island generally. It's a very friendly place. The beach and shops/restaurants are only a short walk/drive away. Them famous Coco Bistro is 3 mins away! A super local agent is always on hand to provide assistance and answer any questions, but I never had any problems. The owners, Nathaly and Jacques, were also in contact to make sure that I was happy and to suggest places to visit (weekly fish-fry event is a must). Overall a totally hassle free and most enjoyable holiday experience - just perfect and I would highly recommend "That Lovely Gekco House" (by the way I only saw a few little ones on the deck, and they were tiny not Jurassic!).

We just got back from staying at the most amazing little house you have ever seen, the lonely gecko house was perfect for me and my boyfriend to have a relaxing and uplifting vacation. We felt safe, and more importantly felt like that house was our home away from home. With the amazing colors and bikes we used offten. They home owners are clearly consider our friends with how well they communicated and valued us as guest. You should book the gecko house now! You will not regret the beautiful house and the amazing beaches right near there! Read more

Even better than described. Great location, just a quick walk down to the beach. Depending on level of motivation, almost everything is accessible with the provided bikes. The Coco Bistro right next door is hands down the best restaurant on the island. The groundskeeper Thasheena is very friendly and helpful. Read more
Hi Jason and Robyn! thank you very much for your review. We are very happy that you liked staying at our place. thanks again! Nathaly & Jacques

That lovely house was much more than we ever expected! This was our first trip to the island. We were looking for something affordable, safe, located close to the beach and most of all, private. We could not have asked for anything better. This house is tastefully furnished and lively with colors! Air conditioning is available but we were comfortable without it, the house is airy and letting the breezes circulate just did the trick. The owner and the property manager could not be more kind, accommodating and thoughtful towards their guests. They can always be reached when you need something or just ideas as to where to go for dinner. They were very helpful. Their customer service is top notch, that was very important to us; we were greeted at the airport, put in a taxi and then again at the house for an orientation/information session. They have thought of everything you might need, including starter soap, a fully charged cell phone for local calls, water/beer and even beach chairs and beach toys and let's not forget the complimentary bikes! priceless! It was spotless when we arrived and only a few minutes' walk to everything we wanted - a grocery store, a bank, the beach and many great bars and restaurants. We simply loved the screened in veranda! what a nice area to this charming house! This was a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it. Perfect for a romantic trip! Thanks again for a wonderful stay. Read more

You want privacy and quietness while on vacation this is the place. This newly renovated house is perfect for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle that life throws our way. The house has all the basic necessity of ones own home. A well stock kitchen, linens, towels and more. If you want to get around the island and enjoy the view (and the views on Turks are beautiful, day and night) use their complimentary bikes. This a home away from home, everything is at your disposal: restaurants and supermarket close by, a few blocks from Grace Bay Beach. The owners themselves are fabulous, they want to make your stay as memorable as possible; they even provide their guests with a list of to dos, and where to go. These wonderful owners may have a list of what to do, but the island itself is yours to discover, so come and enjoy the home and what it has to offer. See you soon!
