Stayed at Gecko House the last week of 2016. Owners live on site right next door. Everything worked out great and the owners were very helpful with suggestions for places to visit on the Island. Fish Bay is a great location for quick trips into Cruz Bay or 15-20 minute drives to the north shore beaches or about 30 minutes...

We've just returned from a great week on St. John, and our stay at Gecko House made the trip even more special than we could have imagined. The house is very private, yet close to everything we wanted to do! We spent lots of time in Cruz and Coral Bays hiking, snorkeling, and being lazy on the beach and found...

We found Gecko House ideally located for exploring the island of St.John. A short drive took us to Cruz Bay for groceries and restaurants and the National Park for its' beautiful beaches, snorkeling and hiking. Gecko House provided us with a peaceful place to relax with a great view of Fish Bay. The screened porch was where we spent our...

Our stay at Gecko House was based on trip advisor reviews. I liked the personal touches mentioned in each of those. Gecko House lived up to our expectations. This is a sweet and very small house. A single room with a bath in a studio setup that works very well. The view is breathtaking -- over Fish Bay -- and...

My wife and I spent two weeks on St. John, with a week in Coral Bay and a week at Gecko House. As small as the island is, we had totally different experiences and both were totally enjoyable. Gecko House was a perfectly comfortable home and Andrea and Joel were wonderful hosts. We especially appreciated the close easy access to...

Gecko house is gorgeous! It is perfectly equipped with everything you may need to feel right at home. You really get a true sense of what it must be like to live on the island. I also cannot say enough good things about Andrea and Doug! From the time we arrived in St. John, to the time we left they...

My girlfriend and I lucked out in finding this little gem on St. John. Gecko House was our home base for five days while we explored the islands trails, bays and beaches. Andrea, the owner, was so nice and super helpful if we had questions about the apartment or the island. The apartment itself had everything we needed - and...

This was an amazing trip for my wife and I. We came here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and had a completely amazing time. Make sure you connect with The Whistler if you want someone local who can show you all the best food and snorkeling spots; also, if you like good music, then you will love his folksy...

My husband and I just took our honeymoon on St. John. Neither of us had been before, and we had a wonderful experience at Gecko House on our first trip. The villa is nestled up on the mountain with a beautiful view of Fish Bay from the screened in porch, where we drank our coffee every morning. The area around...

This place is amazing and really one of the best values on the entire island. I would not stay anywhere else. For me and my wife there is a delicate balance that you want to find for a vacation rental. We want a place that is comfortable enough that you enjoy staying there, but not too expensive that you feel...
