Making a booking is easy

We prepare menus for omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or lactose intolerant diets. If you have any other dietary restrictions or allergies, please let us know before sending your deposit to finalize your booking to make sure we can accommodate your needs.

The following ingredients form the basis of many of our recipes and cannot be requested to be excluded: onion, garlic, tomato, peppers (bell & chili). If you have an allergy that does not allow one or more of these ingredients, Gecko Rock (or this region in general) may not be the best fit for your vacation.

Gecko Rock offers the choice of 3 spice levels: mild, medium and spicy. Zero spice level is not available.

We do our best to accommodate as many reasonable dietary requests as possible.
