"Casa Gecko" our little home away from home in the sun. It's located on a small resort complex with 3 swimming pools (1 indoor) just a few kilometers from Marbella and close to the small harbour of Cabopino.
There's lot's to read and take in here but we think it's important to let you know everything we can to help you to make the right decision for your holiday in the sun.
The joy of this house is it has 3 outdoor terraces so you can enjoy sunshine or shade all day long. The large front terrace is gated and secure whilst the master bedroom upstairs enjoys the full sunshine all afternoon right through to sunset. It's lovely and private and a real suntrap for the sun worshippers. There is another ground level terrace on the pool side with access directly from the kitchen which enjoys morning sunshine and is a lovely place to have your first coffee of the day. It's just a short walk over the lawn to the pool.
We have fitted a modern open plan kitchen diner which is all new with all the necessities such as kettle, toaster, nespresso coffee maker, filter coffee machine microwave ,oven/grill, dishwasher, pots and pans, utensils and an induction hob. The fridge is probably the most important feature you'll want and it's new and big with a decent freezer compartment for your ice cubes and ice creams.
The living room is equipped with a 42 inch wall mounted TV, Bluetooth enabled hifi, air conditioning and a large sofa bed and easy arm chair. Hi speed unlimited Internet access is included in your rental of Casa Gecko.
The master bedroom is upstairs and has it's own private sun terrace with 2 sun loungers, parasol, table and chairs. There is an ensuite bathroom with walk in shower, sink and toilet adjoining the master bedroom. The master bedroom is fitted with a large sliding door wardrobe with ample hanging space and room for all your shoes and clothes. There is also a small hotel safe (security deposit box) in the house for your valuables. There is a wall mounted TV and independent air conditioning in the master bedroom too.
The 2nd bedroom is downstairs is small but does have a standard size double bed, bedside tables and some limited hanging space. It has it's own own en-suite bathroom with a luxury shower, toilet and sink.
You will be met upon arrival by our housekeeper who will hand over the keys and show you around. She will also be available to you throughout your stay in case of any problems or questions. You'll have the enjoyment of the whole house and it's entirely your own private space but you also have all the convenience to use of all the hotel resort facilities if you choose. The resort has 2 restaurants which you can opt for various dining packages if you desire. When you speak to the resort reception they will tell you the different prices for the packages they can offer but as a guide expect to budget about €15 per person per day. There is also a poolside bar and restaurant which serves all the usual drinks and snacks which serves a good range of food late into the evening.
Other things to note
This is absolutely a no pets and no smoking house. There are smoking areas by the pool bar with ashtrays.
Sorry but we are not willing to have very young children in the house. There is an open marble staircase with metal railings, hard marble floors and glass tables so whilst we appreciate everyone thinks their toddlers and perfectly behaved, we don't accept bookings from families with very young children. We wouldn't recommend this house for children under age 7.
The house suitable for maximum of 4 people. Aside from the 2 bedrooms, there is equipped with a sofa bed in the living room but we only recommend occasional use of this. It is a very comfortable sofa bed, but the house isn't really big enough for 6 adults. The sofa bed is handy if perhaps you have 2 older children that maybe don't want to sleep together or if it gets really hot and someone want's to spread out a bit to cool off but we do not rent the house for more than 4 people. We aren't licenced for more then 4 and we are not insured for more than 4 people.
Your booking deposit of 20% is required at time of booking. The balance is required to be paid 30 days before arrival at the property along with a security deposit of €350. Your security deposit will be returned within 15 days of departure or in the event of cancellation. Please see our detailed terms and conditions for more details about booking deposit, security deposit, payments and cancellations.
