We have stayed at many decent places in mission beach and Geckos Cottage is another one we will keep on the list.
Very good amenities and stuff in the house to make the holiday decent. Excellent pool, great air con. Right on the beach ! ! nice a quiet place to stay and great for a family.
The only things that may need improving for the premium price is that the gardens definitely need love - - there has been time spent setting the grounds up very nice, but they need a lot of water and some TLC
The only other thing is the be aware that there are no curtains so when the sun comes up early in the morning the light coming off the ocean doesn't allow for a sleep in :-)
However its an excellent place to stay - very quiet, very peaceful, well appointed, nice pool and it was a very relaxing week !
OH - - and free decent speed internet free for the whole week we were there... well done to the owners on this point !
