Giggling Gecko Guest House

From R350 PPS



The idea of a guest house came to us when the last of our offspring was about to "fly the coop" and we realised that we had the perfect setting for family holidays. With a 15 minute stroll to the beach, almost perfect climate, entertainment venues, fabulous family restaurants, sporting facilities, shopping centres, nature reserves all interlinked with the beautiful sunshine coast scenery plus its facilities - we felt compelled to give others the opportunity to enjoy all that our home and surroundings have to offer. We are "pet friendly" although we draw the line when it comes to pythons and crocodiles. Feel free to call us with details.

You will have the comfort of a main en-suite and lounge opening onto a large patio and pool area with braai facilities. A separate dining room, large, open-plan kitchen with eye-level oven, hob and breakfast bar, laundry, second bedroom and main bathroom complete these facilities which will sleep 6 adults comfortably.


Secure parking in a peaceful garden with well established trees offers the ideal breakaway in the unspoilt Easten Cape. High perimeter walls offer relative privacy for all guests for suntanning and cooling off in the pool.

Try a peaceful suburb in a beautiful part of South Africa, on a magnificent coastline, with a myriad of facilities no more than 15 km away, a fantastic surfing beach within a 15 minute stroll from your bedroom and a picturesque river even closer and you will have found a family holiday paradise.

The bathroom serving this bedroom is directly alongside, but is not en-suite. However, no other guests would use this bathroom, so it is effectively a "private" bathroom.

Laundry facilities are also available.

Free Accommodation Winner

It was a very pleasant surprise to get the free accommodation refund after my stay at The Giggling Gecko. I have not had much luck in the past with winning anything and this 'win' really made my day . Sleeping-Out seems to be a well-run organisation and the booking procedure was so simple.

Good value for money if you don't mind sharing a home with the owners. The detached flat may be the better option for a family as opposed to being in the main house. Also have many dogs so if you are a dog lover all good.

Giggling Gecko has a warm and friendly homely atmosphere - is centrally located and good value for money.

Relaxed atmosphere, home from home. Lovely hosts. We were visiting family and we were encouraged to invite them over for a braai. Would definitely return if I needed accommodation in East London. Dogs very entertaining!

There should be a big sign outside saying "Giggling Gecko", I didnt see one and drove past the first time


Very friendly and caring hosts.The accommodation was very good and my dogs enjoyed our stay just as much as we did. We can recommend Giggling Gecko!

Most enjoyable, I will be going back . Lovely couple who own the place, they make you feel at home.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
