    We booked a 5 night stay here in February via their website. Receiving a prompt and well-written reply that answered all our questions was an encouraging sign that the owners saw guest satisfaction as essential, and we booked by return.
    The villa's website contained detailed information on the property, the area, local customs and things to do, rates and availability etc, but during our actual trip they still managed to exceed our expectations: we were met off our arriving flight at Udon Thani airport and driven to the villa. The owners lived in a small village a couple of kms away, but were always on hand to answer any questions we had, to take us on visits to a variety of different places in the area, and to cook all our meals - which were superb! They arranged traditional Thai massages for us, showed us some of the secrets of preparing Thai food, and recommended that we take a boat trip on the Red Lotus Sea - something we cannot recommend too highly as it was a stunningly beautiful sight. They also had us learning to drive their samlor, interacting with wild monkies, and gave us bicycles to explore the villages and countryside by ourselves.

    What were the highlights?
    The Red Lotus Sea
    The World Heritage site visit & craft shopping there.
    The delicious Thai food (which was all included in the rental rate)
    The team at Gecko Villa - all of whom were helpful, friendly, always smiling and always keen to help.
    The private swimming pool at the villa itself - very relaxing and the focal point of the property
    The variety of things to see and do in an authentic and untouched setting.

    Downsides?
    None! We should have stayed longer...

    Judging by their reviews on Tripadvisor, our own enjoyment of the property reflected the visits of previous guests.

    We would definitely recommend this place for friends and families who enjoy meeting the locals and getting off the tourist trail. Those looking for bright lights and city life however should look elsewhere.

    A real gem that is totally hidden among the rice paddies! The welcome and friendliness of Ten and his family made us feel very much at home, and the Thai food they cooked was delightful. The kids fell in love with the private pool, and we will never forget the lotus lake trip on the wooden boat. We will not hesitate to recommend this places to friends.
