Leaping Lizards is a unique vacation rental which was perfect for our 13 people in 3 families. Separated bedrooms, kitchens and baths allowed for privacy, while the upstairs kitchen and living area and the central pool area, as well as the beach provided perfect areas to get together. The property was clean and well-maintained. Landscaping carefully integrated around the buildings provided a feeling of a tropical tree house. Top quality furnishings and amenities made our stay comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing. We enjoyed eating in, walking the beach, snorkeling, boating and deep sea fishing. Kids loved the pool area and the beach. We all would love to return.

Owner response: Thank you so much for the kind review. We really enjoyed having you at Leapin Lizards and would love to have you all come back again. We are so pleased that you had a good visit at our favorite place on earth!!!
We've been coming down to Abaco for many years and have stayed all over the island. Leeping Lizard was perfect for our large group. We've never stayed in a home with so many amenities! A fully stocked kitchen is important but plush towels, robes, water toys, beach chairs, beach bags,etc. were such a huge bonus and luxury! Your home was absolutely stunning and we so enjoyed all of the many decks for different times of the day. The landscaping was incredible. Although we were off on the boat during the day, we took full advantage of all that your home had to offer! Simply, wonderful!

A beautiful location for a larger group (family or friends). Affords excellent common areas but also privacy with the main house and beach front cottage. Centrally located on Elbow Cay making it simple to travel into Hope Town or down to the Marina. LVA Grocery is just around the corner and On Da Beach restaurant/bar is within walking distance. The property is in beautiful condition with many amenities. Comfortable, beautiful, quite - a great location for a vacation. Property Management was excellent. They were quick to respond to our request before and during our stay. Helped us contact everyone for every thing we needed for our stay.

This was the most amazing vacation rental with top notch accomadations and luxury at every turn. The outdoor bed was fabulous as was the entire property. I loved every minute of it and I can't wait to return someday. It was apparent immediately that the owners take great pride in ensuring the guest of Leapin Lizards have the best experience possible.

Leapin` Lizards was perfect for our group of 13! Everybody loved the house and the way the two separate houses were laid out. The furnishings, linens, bath towels, beach towels were all in excellent condition. The AC worked perfect unlike other houses we have rented in other islands. We loved the stereo systems; the pool area; all of the decks; and especially the deck and incredible bed in front of the small house closest to the beach. The beach was beautiful and secluded just like we were hoping it was. We also liked having "On Da Beach" bar and grill within walking distance and ate several meals there. The owners put a lot of thought into building the two houses and went all out. We also loved the way the bridge connected the two houses. The hammocks were great and the hot tub was also great. Judy did a great job taking care of our large party and coordinating getting all of our luggage and groceries in the truck and also picking up our luggage when we had to leave. She was very available any time we needed her and had a great attitude. She also was very helpful lining up taxis and gave us helpful hints on where to rent a boat. There were so many places to hang out at the two houses that you could get away from the group if you wanted privacy. We also liked having the bar b que pits and used them many of the nights we stayed. The website was accurate describing the house. Everything was clean and very well maintained. It was nice having a washer and dryer available if we needed it. We tried several restaurants on Elbow Cay and liked them all. For a special evening, I`d recommend the Harbor Lodge. We had the best lamb chops we have ever tasted there. We enjoyed cruising around on golf carts and really enjoyed the one day we rented boats for our group to go check out other islands. The scuba diving was nice and would be a great place for a beginner to learn since most of the diving is pretty shallow. I would have preferred a little better visibility and more dive sites to choose from but the overall experience of being on Elbow Cay was positive.

This was my first time in the Abacos and obviously first time staying at Leapin Lizards. I was only there for four days but I was able to relax as if I had been there for ten! When we first walked on the property, I was shocked at how beautiful everything was. The property is immaculate and very inviting. Not only that, spotless and comfortable. The beach and the pool - right there. The two houses (attached by a walkway and pool in the middle) accommodates a large party (I believe sleeps 16) but there is plenty of room to getaway and have your privacy if needed. There is not one thing you could want that isn't supplied. Stereo system with an Ipod attachment, televisions (if you want that - I'm happy to say I did not!) bbq grills. The town is within a short beachfront walk if you want to eat out or shop a little. If you bring your food in, there is no reason to leave! I was there with a group of friends but am in the process of planning a trip to bring my family for a reunion. This is truly the best vacation spot I have ever enjoyed and Leapin Lizards will always be my first choice of places to stay.
