2/10 Poor

Terrible stay at gecko cottage
My stay was terrible at gecko cottage, I searched for the place for 30 minutes thinking will see the name outside but no, I had to search using house number 70. Worse part I didn't know I was going to sleep in the garage. It was very cold and I asked for a blanket and Sharon gave me dirty blanket with the smell of dogs

The room was super clean, with everything I needed and more. Andy is an amazing host : responsive comms before and during, great support throughout. He does game drives and shares his passion about the animals and where to find them ;) - I will be back! Thank you so much Andy for all your help.
