About Lazy Gecko

Lazy Gecko is conveniently situated in the peaceful upper residential area of Cradock, Eastern Cape, just 5 minutes from major banks, shops and restaurants. We welcome you to experience our warm and friendly hospitality in gracious and relaxed surroundings in the beautiful Karoo, with lots to do and see and at night have a peaceful rest in one of our three modern units, each with en-suit bathroom and braai area.

With your stay why not explore the Karoo - South Africa's vast central plateau, a land of wide open skies and, for many South Africans, the true heart of the country.

As an enviro-tourism destination, the Karoo is unsurpassed, with scenery that changes from dramatic, rugged mountains to arid, open plains. Malaria free game viewing, mountaineering, hunting, farm visits, bird-watching, water sports - they're all here, alongside imposing historical buildings and mysterious rock art.

We regret that we have a No-smoking policy in all of the rooms, however smoking is permitted at the braai areas. There is however limited secure in-yard parking with a lockable sliding gate and relatively safe off street parking.

Hope to see you soon, have a safe trip.

              Not a friendly reception. A promised wifi not received. No breakfast as advertised. Toilet leaking. Bed very uncomfortable. T. V no channels available. Only 3 channels after host was contacted. Advertising very wrong. It is advertised as Bed and Breakfast No soap holder in shower. Soap holder in shower empty

              Friendly and warm welcome. Nice and quiet. Only the bed was really uncomfortable. Sponge mattrass with plank, really not pleasant after a 11 hours drive. Would be appreciated if the fridge was switched on before arrival.
