We spent 5 days in the self catering bungalow. It was very peaceful and quiet. The only sounds are that of birds and Peacocks, which just adds to the ambience. The bungalows are comfortable, with 1 bedroom and 2 sleeper coaches in the lounge for the kids. TV has enough of a variety of channels, and the enclosed yard is large for pets. This was one of the reasons we selected Gecko, as it is pet friendly. Staying outside of Swakop means you do not have the early morning mist, and it is generally warmer than been at the coast. The overall cleanliness of the bungalow was acceptable, but needs a bit of attention when it comes to micro cleaning in corners and the top of cupboards. The positives far out way the negatives and I would recommend it as the best pet friendly accommodation at the coast.

Very friendly welcome. Excellent rooms. Nice pool. Lovely staff. This is bigger than you think and breakfast is served in a room right at the back. There are some interesting spots around the hotel for finding the sun at different times of the day.

Gecko Ridge Guesthouse is located out of Swakopmund and for us this was a bonus with the peace and quiet. This is a really well set up accommodation venue offering B&B facilities, chalets and on-site camping. Our chalet was perfect and much larger than expected with a kitchen, braai area. It was a short walk to the main building and the dining room which was separate to the main building as well. The dining room was a total surprise with a bar and two separate lounge areas with fire places to warm the room. The food on offer was really good and the service from the friendly staff also very good. The owners also made themselves known to the guests and were always ready for a chat or to help. A great location to base yourself while exploring Swakopmund and the surrounding area.

I stayed by Gecko Ridge Guest house and it is always a pleasure, with new self catering chalets and and a bar, what more do you need :-). Zandre has always been a good host and has always been on point. The setting is beautiful and away from the busy streets of Swakopmund town. Zandre has put alot into this lodge and it shows. Kudos Zandre.

Room tip: The self catering Chalets are really stunning

The staff was really friendly! The rooms were huge, some had their own garden with a braai spot (BBQ). Breakfast was good and served with a smile. It was about 10-15 min from Swakopmund. I can really recommend this place!
