My wife and two children traveled to Udon Thani in June and stayed at Gecko Villa. We were there to deliver school supplies to a village school nearby through Pack with a Purpose which recommended Gecko Villa. The villa itself is a wonderful, peaceful retreat located about 30 kms or so from the city of Udon Thani. The villa sits...

We stayed at Gecko Villa with a group of friends over a 2 night weekend trip from Vientiane. You don't realise how many commitments and worries your normal life has until you find the exact opposite in a place like this. Everything was taken care of from the moment we arrived, with drinks served and a delicious dinner prepared. It...

Gekko Villa is a well managed, clean and peaceful hideaway in the Thai countryside. The food is included and is always delicious. The pool is very welcome in the heat and the butterflies are plentiful. Squirrels and fireflies are fascinating. The manager will take you out for daily trips e.g. to Ban Chiang, Monkey Park and even as far as...

We enjoyed every second of this flawless bolthole - so much so that we would have been quite happy never leaving the property.

Best of all, the welcome afforded us by Ten and...
