Thanks so much for making my stay unforgettable. From the minute I arrived, till the time I drove out the drive-way. This morning I woke at home and the first thing I missed was the awesome breakfast. I will definitely return !

The hosts were extremely warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Roger (1 of our hosts) even washed our windows before we left after travelling on all the dirt roads. They also gave us guidance on where to go in and around Coffee Bay and sent us detailed instructions on how to get there without damaging the car... More

We travelled from Johannesburg to Coffee Bay and Roger sent us notes to explain road conditions, dos and don'ts and what to expect which turned out to be very very accurate. The property as such is basic and clean. We felt comfortable. Roger was extremely helpful and provided excellent information about the area, roads, attractions, eateries. Also Roger and his... More

We stayed over for two nights and we wished we could stay longer. The owners were very nice and helpful. I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone traveling to Coffee Bay, the service was exceptional. It is value for money and we will definitely be going back.

Geckos was the best memory of Coffee Bay, an area that was a bit disappointing with the roads, weather and facilities. Leonine and Roger were perfect hosts. The room was comfortable, the surroundings peaceful and breakfast was outstanding. Sadly, no wifi, but for a short stay that was not a problem I highly recommend this guest house.

After a ride where you need to concentrate (potholes, children, animals on the road) you enter a different world. When visiting the wild coast, you need to stay in coffee bay, and "Gecko guest house" is just a "must book".

Geckos is a lovely guest house, with great views and comfortable accommodations. Roger and Leonie are warm, gracious and helpful hosts. The rooms were spotless, and the breakfasts were generous and delicious. We really felt at home here. From the house you can walk to the restaurants and beaches of Coffee Bay.
