About Giggling Gecko Guest House

Giggling Gecko is a 2 star guest house, meet the two stars, Michele and Rodney. The idea of a guest house came to us when the last of our offspring was about to fly the coop and we realised that we had the perfect setting for family holidays.

With a five-minute walk to the beach, almost perfect climate, entertainment venues, fabulous family restaurants, sporting facilities, shopping centres and nature reserves all interlinked with the beautiful Sunshine Coast scenery, plus it's facilities, we felt compelled to give others the opportunity to enjoy all that our home and surroundings have to offer. We are pet friendly although we draw the line when it comes to pythons and crocodiles.

You will have the comfort of a main en-suite bedroom and lounge opening onto a large patio and pool area with braai facilities. There is a separate dining room, a large open-plan kitchen with an eye-level oven and hob and a breakfast bar, and a laundry. The second bedroom and main bathroom complete these facilities which will sleep six adults comfortably.

Secure parking in a peaceful garden with well-established trees offers the ideal breakaway in the unspoilt Eastern Cape. High perimeter walls offer relative privacy for all guests for suntanning and cooling off in the pool. A full English breakfast can be arranged at an extra cost of R50, or R30 if we provide the food and you cook it.

                  We had a fabulous stay at GGGH, and came back rejuvenated, energetic & refreshed from our Easter holiday. We spent quality family time in comfortable, stylish surroundings, with Rodney & Michele (and their 2 small grandsons),as warm & hospitable as the previous time. We will definitely be back again.....and again. Cheers !!
