About Gecko Cottage

Gecko cottage is a small 1 bedroom unit alongside its sister cottage, Akkedis (also bookable here).  This self-catering unit has everything you need for a week-end or mid-week getaway and is the perfect base for exploring the winelands.

A King Size bed offers a fabulous nights sleep.  The en-suite bathroom has a lovely hand-decorated shower and the kitchenette is fully equipped with a 2 plate hotplate and electric fryer (no oven) and microwave.  Fridge and tea / coffee is provided.  Small seating area in the cottage has a unique fireplace made by owner and local artist, Andrea Desmond-smith who has also decorated the entire unit with her unique wall murals.

The fynbos garden is a delight and you are invited to take a stroll, find the many statues dotted around, walk the labyrinth, swim in the dam, visit the meditation tree and have your sundownsers there while watching the spectacular sunsets Franschhoek is well known for.

One of the few pet friendly accommodation options in the village.  No children under 12 please.
