Set back on half an acre with views to the mountains and a bushy outlook is this open plan,compact but cozy dwelling with modern appliances to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Bring your pet and or children as the dwelling is fully fenced. Even bring your boat if you wish as there is plenty of parking on the property.

The new Woolworth's shopping centre is within walking distance (approx 500 m )

Bicycle path all the way to Tin Can Bay just across the road or head to the cove on foot for a peaceful stroll


TV....Stereo home theater system - also connected to the TV. Xbox to help keep kids and adult kids amused on rainy days and evenings or when Mum and Dad need a nap! Oh....and we found we had a game here so have left that here in case you forget to bring your own - games can be hired at the Tin Can Bay Video Rentals. We have now also added an "air hockey" table!

The fridge is a digital 2 door fridge/freezer with ice maker and has on tap chilled and filtered water.

The dishwasher and clothes dryer are new and both work like a dream.....used and tested by ourselves.

The washing maching is only a couple of years old and is a digital Samsung - she works well.

4 slice toaster for convenience and new microwave and kettle

For family fun there is a "Monopoly" set and also a large wooden chess set and the obligitory pack of cards

The split system air conditioning unit ensures year round comfort and for the not so hot days there's a ceiling fan and pedestal fan.


Fish off the pier at Tin Can Bay or down at the cove (2km) or enjoy lazy hours down at the cove at high tide where children can swim and play without the fear of large waves and rips.

At Tin Can Bay - Free dolphin feeding, public swimming pool, environmental walkway with public BBQ area and playground overlooking the bay. Dinghy and kayak hire, golf, bowls and boat ramp all situated just 5 minutes drive away as are the pubs and clubs and with a complimentary door to door service provided by the bowls club everyone gets to have a good time!

Fishing charters, adventure tours to Fraser Island, Coloured Sands and gorgeous Double Island Point, 4WD hire, paragliding, tennis court hire,4WD access to the beach are all available out of Rainbow Beach.

Overall a great place to holiday for the whole family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We came here for a well deserved break with the 3 kids. It rained a lot but we were cosy inside and the kids had plenty to do between the air hockey and x-box! They also loved the ice maker! Everything was clean and worked, it was just what we needed, thanks so much, we will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a location, a short drive to Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach and a stroll to the shops. All the attractions of the Fraser Coast at your door step without the price tag...Value! We loved our stay, with only one regret: should have booked 2 weeks. Gecko Pad was like a home away from home. Bugger camping this was so much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Mark and Louise,We enjoyoyed our stay at "Gecko Lodge" enormously.Everything was supplied and most comfortable.We wanted a "rest" and to take things easy which we did comfortably.We did take our poodle (Ebony). She was made most welcome.We would reccomend "Gecko Lodge" to anyone wishng to stay.There are many other things to visit in the area Rainbow beach, Tin Can Bay with the dolphins and there is a good fish co-op there also. Gympie and the famous "Rattler" for steam buffs.In short a graet place to stay and will be back again.Mark and Louise are great to deal with also.Regards,Ken and Jan

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We enjoyed our 3 nights in 'The Gecko Pad'. Close to Rainbow beach for a swim in the warm waves and the hand feeding of Dolphins at Tin Can Bay. The kids loved the air hockey. Facilities clean and new. Fully fenced surrounds.
