Host Review Score

Gecko Shed
The Gecko Shed is a detached Studio surround by incredible coastal rainforest. Tallow creek is the natural border and is full of bird life. The sound of birds in the morning and the ocean at night is magical. It is easy to forget the world.
The Gecko Shed was built to provide guests with a unique & private experience. Well appointed and clean accommodation connected to the world. I love to travel, I find it a wonderful soul enriching joy. By hosting you, I can travel without moving
Some of the most incredible beaches in the world are close by. So is the Byron Bay Golf Club for those that can deal with that frustrating game! The beach & Village shops (supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, post office and restaurant) are a short stroll.
