Mike Airhart met his wife Aileen five years ago, when they were both working as English teachers in South Korea. In 2012, they decided to leave their old lives behind and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. After liquidating their assets, the couple moved to a small town in southern Mexico and began building a boutique beachside resort from the ground up.
After over two years of design and construction, Gecko Rock Resort opened for business in late 2014. Located on the breathtaking Oaxacan Riviera, between the surfing mecca of Puerto Escondido and the high-end tourist destination of Huatulco, Gecko Rock offers a relaxing, intimate getaway in an unforgettable paradise. With four casitas, each equipped with private rooftop balconies, the resort provides a unique brand of personal attention and service. While sipping margaritas by the pool is always enjoyable to pass the time, for those wishing to get out and explore, the Puerto Escondido region offers some of the world’s best snorkeling, horseback riding, and mountain bike adventures.
