“Absolutely beautiful house with amazing view”
Reviewed 27 August 2008

If you want to get away from the town of St. John but only be 5 minutes away, the Gecko House is perfect. The villa sits on a hillside overing looking Fish Bay. It has spectacular views. We had a wonderful time staying there. Its the perfect getaway place.

We had a wonderful two week stay at Gecko House in February 2008, our first time visiting the Virgin Islands, from Canada.

Loved the cottage, the privacy, the facilities and homelike feeling compared to being in a hotel. Beautiful view of the bay and hills beyond, lovely breezes flowing through wide open windows. We loved sitting on the deck having breakfast as little yellow birds visited, sitting on a teacup filled with sugarwater, as sweetsmelling scents from the fruit trees below drifted by us. The starfilled clear dark sky at night, called to us again to sit outside and soak up Carribean air.

Having a rented car allowed us to swim at a different beach everyday, exploring delightful St.John with terrific variety of restaurants.

The artist owner made it so easy for us by meeting us at the ferry, taking us to get a car, giving suggestions and directions and she seemed to be able to fill whatever we needed. Her knowledge and understanding of the Islands' culture added great depth to our visit. She was also most helpful giving us information before we left home to make things run smoothly.

Stayed February 2008
