What a pleasant surprize! We arrived at the Guesthouse, Ursula greeted us friendly at the gate and took us to our room. The facility was spot on, very clean, tidy and so neat. We spend a pleasant night there and was spoilt with a real farmhouse breakfast the next morning. We would definitely recommend this Guesthouse to anybody. Thank you...

We stayed at the Gorgeous Gecko Guesthouse on our return from northern KNP en route for Hermanus. Our stay was very comfortable and we found Ursula and her husband most hospitable and enjoyed a tasty dinner together.

The service we received was great. The staff was friendly and very hands on. The guesthouse (rooms and dining area) was very clean and well kept. We had warm covers and a very comfortable bed! The guesthouse is also centrally located, close to the local mall and restaurants.

Me and my friends had an amazing time at Gorgeous Gecko Guesthouse. The rooms were perfectly clean. The beds are comfortable, and being given the heaters was just a bonus. The rooms are not expensive at all even.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay at our guesthouse. Although we ourselves do not stay at the guest house, our manager does as part of our service to our guests.

Gorgeous Gecko Guesthouse was really close to where we had to be and allowed us to stay just one night which is not always easy to get. Walking in was like to walk into a home. Warm and caring. Pay them a visit and see the potential to your needs.
