'The Gecko' is tucked between the sea and the mountain. Go down the steps to reach a beautiful coastline with beaches, tidal pools and catwalks. Go up and enter a pristine environment with many wonderful hikes. For a village atmosphere, short strolls will take you either to Kalk Bay or Muizenberg - both full of character, renowned restaurants and hubs of creativity.
Or simply indulge in the views and in the garden - where native plants have created a haven for birds and butterflies.

Amazing view and quite unique. The house is perfect for a couple or a small family with children . Just be aware that the second room is a single bed with another bed which is a pull out on the floor , so for older families it can be challenging. Its a amazing place and would rec…
