Gecko Villa - Bywords for a Warm Thai Welcome, a Private Pool Villa, Yummy Thai Food and a Memorable Thailand Holiday
A tranquil Thai holiday retreat for your next vacation
Privacy is assured at your own Villa in the midst of the rice paddies. Just relax at this Thailand holiday rental - a true rural retreat - or adventure into the traditions of the surrounding villages. Please find below some useful information on the property itself, some of the services offered, and more.
The Thai villa and gardens
Gecko Villa is set in over 60,000 sqm. of private grounds, with a walled garden, fish ponds, and orchards where we grow a large variety of mango, banana, passion fruit and other plants including chillies, papaya, galangal, Thai basil, lemongrass, herbs and more...
The house itself consists of several separate buildings set around a private garden and linked by wooden verandas and decks. These also lead to the private swimming pool that is set into the deck at the same level. The house has a large air-conditioned Master Bedroom with a teak, King sized bed, en suite W.C. & sink, and adjoining garden shower. Its private veranda also boasts a hammock in which to laze under the fragrant frangipani flowers. The second and third air-conditioned & King-bedded bedrooms enjoy views over the garden and swimming pool towards the rice fields, and share an en-suite W.C. and shower.
Relax at the villa
The large air-conditioned living & dining room offers satellite TV (BBC, CNN, TV5 etc.), a DVD/CD player and sound system, and a selection of DVD films and books. Water hyacinth sofas and armchairs with comfortable cushions, as well as cotton futons, offer plenty of space to relax in comfort, whilst the large indoor dining table is just the place to enjoy indoor meals and conversations. Further extensive wooden decks and outdoor hardwood tables, chairs and benches also permit guests to enjoy outdoor meals, or to relax with a drink al fresco.
Free 3G Internet
Should you wish to access the internet at the villa, we have a notebook available which offers wireless internet connectivity. Alternatively, our 3G USB modem can automatically be used on your own device.
One of our pet peeves is properties that charge for internet access, so your internet use is free!

Thai food at Gecko Villa and the villa kitchen
As self-catering holidays often tie you to the kitchen, at Gecko Villa we prepare and serve all your meals for you, free of charge. We will also be happy to show you how to make Thai and local dishes. The Villa has a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, microwave, hobs and oven. The kitchen is separated into a formal Western style kitchen and an open-air Thai kitchen, set off a spacious balcony. Barbecues can be arranged, as can demonstrations of Thai cooking, suckling pig roasts and an exploration of our organic fruit and herb gardens to collect the raw ingredients for cooking. Of course, if you are a passionate cook, you are always free to use the kitchen yourself.
Plunge into your private pool...
Your own tranquil swimming pool is finished in hand-made tiles, in mottled hues of green from celadon to emerald. Sun loungers allow you to simply lie back and soak up the tropical sun.
