About the Property
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Welcome to our family home on South Beach of Bald Head Island. We are anxious to treat you like a family member -- no hidden booking fees or unscrupulous deception. Give me, Ken Dodge, a call at 919-451-9524.
We are excited to offer a newly remodeled kitchen with granite counters and other upgrades to our meticulously-maintained and pristine home for this year.
'Leaping Lizards' is where we have made many memories of our children building sand castles, spotting alligators in the creeks, boogie-boarding over the ocean waves, fishing in the surf, hiking in the maritime forest, watching loggerhead sea turtles hatch, and making jigsaw puzzles. It's amazing how wonderful family life is at the beach. Children will even play board games with their parents!
We take very good care of the home that has brought us these memories. Leaping Lizards is in the highest-quality condition with hardwood floors and furnishings. Newly remodeled kitchen and appliances, freshly painted, new carpet, 4 large HD TVs. We have the fastest-available internet service.
Our home has a reverse floor plan, meaning that the upper floor has a living room with a vaulted 14-foot ceiling, dining room, well-equipped kitchen, office nook with high-speed wireless internet access, and deck with panoramic ocean views 70 feet above sea level. We enjoy morning coffee on the deck, watching the dolphins play in the ocean. The master bedroom (queen bed), child's bedroom (queen bed and daybed, HD cable TV with DVD player), and screened porch (hammock) are on the first (entry) floor with 9-foot ceilings.
We have an adjacent second building that is called a crofter, which offers the privacy of an upper-floor bedroom (queen bed, HD cable TV, balcony), and lower-floor bedroom (two twin beds, HD cable TV). In between the buildings is a patio with propane grill, comfortable chairs for watching the sun set, and an outdoor shower.
Leaping Lizards sits high on the Dunes in the award-winning Killegray Ridge community. Behind it is the maritime forest where you might see a deer in the morning; the front deck faces south beach where you can watch pelicans dive into the water next to dolphins. The hammock on the screened porch begs you to read that summer novel.
Our home is across the road from the ocean, close enough for direct, easy two-minute access on the private boardwalk. We have plenty of beach towels, new beach chairs, and toys. Six bicycles afford leisurely trips all over the island. We also get around by electric golf cart. We have two six-person carts. We hike through the maritime forest and salt marsh, where we can see herons, egrets, foxes, and deer. Families have the option to obtain a temporary membership at the BHI Club or the Shoals Club for a nominal fee, providing golf, tennis, swimming pools, croquet, children's programs, playgrounds, and restaurants.
Our friendly house cleaner will prepare for your visit with fresh linens and towels. She will also stop by during the week to see if you need anything. We have maintenance contracts for HVAC and golf carts so that you don't worry. Be Happy.
Travel to Bald Head Island: BHI is accessible from Wilmington, NC, Airport by limousine. If you drive, you can park at Deep Point Terminal in Southport. Take the ferry boat to the island, where a tram will bring you to our door step.

We are in the Killegray Ridge area of Bald Head Island. We have a vista view of the ocean and are only a two-minute walk to the water.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We live in Durham, NC, three hours from Bald Head Island, and we get there as often as we can. We are a family of four: Mom and Dad and two (now young-adult) kids. The smiles on our children's faces are never brighter than when we are all at Leaping Lizards at Bald Head Island.
Why the Owner Chose Killegray Ridge (Bald Head Island, NC, USA):
This is our family vacation home forever. We love BHI. This home is the right size, large enough to spread out but easily manageable. We have a panoramic ocean view from our deck while drinking morning coffee, and we can walk to the beach in a few moments.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
High-quality home that is well-furnished, very near the ocean.
