Honestly by far one of the best places we've ever stayed at. It truely felt like a home from home. From Breakfast on the balcony to lying in the sun in the Garden peace and quite couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended we'll go back again for Sure.

The area of lajares is nice, a quiet little village but with sufficient bars restaurants and a supermarket to make a stay worthwhile. Friendly people too & lovely weather for a Christmas stay. The villa is A good 10 mins Drive from the village however would need a car as we did or hire bikes as bike shops in village. The villa served a purpose, unfortunately it doesnt live up to its discripton. It’looked tired and dated. The villa would benefit from a deep clean and a replacement of some appliances which are old and well worn such as the toaster which you have to hold your finger on the slot button to keep the toast in ! A new overhaul of items and a spruce up would be of benefit. There is an on-site centre called Crater Park wth bar restaurant and shop. Suitable for families with children. Not the cheapest to eat and drink there and much worth traveling to the village instead. Good communication with the owner however who replied to all my queries.

Thank you for your review Dawn...apologies about the toaster. It will be replaced!!! The villa is scheduled to be painted in 4 weeks...sorry you missed that....Kind Regards Don

We have stayed in the property in the past and found it to be very good. However this time it was in a very bad state. Despite emailing the owner with our adverse comments he has not replied. When we entered the property we noticed that there were no sheets on two of the three beds. This was rectified after a phone call to the cleaner. The downstairs back doors do not shut properly and therefore do not lock unless the broken metal shutters are permanently down. The metal shutter in the upstairs bedroom is also broken. Because of the broken shutters, when the wind blows they rattle and whistle. Various light bulbs need replacing. The clock face was broken and it needed a new battery. There was only one chair at the front and the table was covered in sand. The whole garden was a tip with overgrown bushes and dead plants. There were dead insects on the floor inside he property and we needed to brush it out.There was no handle on the freezer door.There is loose plaster on the top of the stairs. Whilst some of these things may seem very minor, we feel that as the property is let out , it should be maintained to a much higher standard.

From the time I booked it, don was helpful and answered any questions I had and the codes for the house and wifi were sent in plenty of time. The villa is a great little villa, with plenty of room and everything you need for a great stay. People on the complex are very friendly and would recommend to anyone

Thank you Lee. delighted you had a great time. Hopefully we can welcome you back some time. Kind Regards Don

Been to the Villa a few times now. Always lovely and cream when we arrive.Its good value for money.a car is essential due to its location and the beach is a short drive away ten mins . It's like home from home really and if you want something more lively you can drive to Main resort. The large supermarket in costa calms is brilliant however the little one is Lajares is also good. The canela in Lajares is lovely to eat and has live music on some nights.. Lovely and peaceful for us this time. First time with out the kids ;( . Thanks Don for the break and your help and also to Melissa who let us use the villa for he extra few hours before setting out o the airport

This is our 2nd visit to Villa Gecko and we love the place. It's so relaxing and peaceful. If you like walking surfing or just relaxing this is the place to be. It's away from all the bright lights of correlejo but near enough if you want to go there. A car is definately recommended though. Villa Gecko itself is a lovely villa with everything you need and more for self catering. Since we prefer to cook our own meals this a great home from home kitchen. Highly recommend a visit here its great
