The property is one of our favorites. The outside area is GREAT, the location is GREAT, the decor is GREAT. We love it. But, a deep clean is in order (and should be scheduled at least once every 3 months or so) and some good cleaning or replacing on throw pillows is needed. Many throw pillows have unidentified stains, we hung a towel up over a door and when we took it off, it was filthy. One of the air vents in the living room had black "stuff" (hubby thinks mold) coming out the sides. Wooden window vents were really dusty, washed every glass in the cupboard when we got there because they did not look clean at all. Musty smell in the house (went and bought candles, made a huge difference) thinking the smell is a side-effect of the ac vent issue.

Side note, sheets don't fit great on MB bed. They slipped off every night.

Again, house is great. Location is great. But, cleaning is an issue.

We love this cottage. Back yard was very overgrown but I called your office and this was taken care of in a timely fashion. My only other issue was that the washcloths and towels did not smell very clean, a bit musty. Maybe too many washed in a single load?? As I said, we love it and always look forward to our time there.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house and backyard. We were able to bring our basset hounds which was wonderful. House is decorated beautifully and roomy. All one level with an exceptional backyard. Fenced and a beautiful outdoor seating area. Kitchen has everything you could want and need. Location is excellent and close to everything. Great street. Looking forward to staying again hopefully soon! Great house for all ages.

We have stayed in this rental several times. And while the location is great the property is going downhill quickly. Not a problem that the rental company is at fault for. But the owner needs to take a better interest in the house. The ceiling and walls are peeling. The beds are far subpar. This could be a GREAT rental if it received some love. We would love to see it improved so we can continue to stay here. But until that happens we will be looking for another rental. Real Escapes continues to be the company we look to for our rental needs. We miss Cameron and will continue to pray for her.

The house was spacious and was comfortable for us. Loved the outside deck. Enjoyed sitting and having evening cocktails on the back deck.
Could have been cleaner, dusty, and floors cleaned. Noted black (mold or mildew) on ceiling of left bedroom over hanging rack. Noted black on ceiling exhaust fan in bathroom to right.
Lawn looked as if it had not been cared for in several months...weeds and overgrown, front and back.
Would recommend and would lease again if spruced up.
We did have a great time and very pleased with all the care and concern RealEscapes had in finding us a place after Irma flooded our original lease.

The Leapin Lizard is the perfect setup for us. It's convenient, tastefully decorated, outstanding outdoor living, great neighbors, suitable for our pups, and reasonably priced. The only improvement I can think of would be to include a king sized bed. This will be our "go to rental" for future trips.

This is the third year we have spent a month in this property.

This year started bad with faulty AC that had to be replaced. One whole day gone. The bathrooms need To be updated badly The toilets and showers barely work. Seems I had to be constantly calling the nice people at Real Escapes. I don't like to be put in the position of complaining. Need to close this one down and refurnished with comfortable beds,, sofa and chairs. For almost $2800 for a month I expect to be comfortable and not be put in the position of complaining. We left early when the shower faucet came off in my hand. Next year Real Escapes will find me a more comfortable, well maintained house.

However overall it was one of my favorite rentals. The back porch was wonderful and we liked the way it was decorated. As always Jan and the staff at Real Escapes were great.

We had a fantastic time at the Leapin Lizard Cottage. House was perfect for family of four, the outdoor living space was really great. We walked or road bikes just about everywhere, so the location is great for us too. We even met the neighbors, who were great. Couple negatives if I'm being picky....The construction at 7am next door every morning was really not good. Vacation = Sleep and we didn't get much with hammers, saws, and people outside two bedrooms. The back door knob came off but there were no tools anywhere to fix. I did the best I could, but probably needs to be looked at soon. The lock on the fence probably needs to be fixed soon too, as it was often difficult to close. Only one suggestion of enclosing the outdoor shower, as we loved it and would use more if enclosed.

Beautiful place in a lovely location.
What we were NOT told was that there would be
major construction next door (to the right of the property in the picture) within arm's reach and precluding any vacation sleeping whatsoever. We submit that this is NOT a situation of caveat emptor, and that Real Escapes had an obligation to forewarn clients
of this disturbing disruption to a long-awaited vacation. And offer a discount.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. There were a few specifics, however, which were unusual. First, I understand that we were the first to stay since a renovation, but the house was dusty with several spiders on arrival(how long since someone was inside?). Second, I understand it is a vacation rental, but the lack of essentially basic channels (no CNN, no ESPN) was frustrating. There is internet access, but it was nearly impossoble to decipher the access code, caps sensitive but not at all what is on the form. Light on the back deck MUST be replaced, it arcs very loudly and flickers on and off, mostly off.

The cottage is a few blocks away from the beach. It is wonderful to be able to go for a walk anytime you like. We walked our dog there several times a day. The cottage is also walking distance to the pier area. The weather was good, some cold days, but even at 50 degrees with the sun and no wind it was great. Would recommend the island and the cottage for a wonderful vacation.

If you are in need of a pet friendly rental that is just around the corner from the beach, look no further than Leapin' Lizard Cottage. The backyard deck and patio were ideal for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and grilling out later in the evening. The dogs even felt like they were on vacation too! We certainly hope to make this our vacation home again next year!

We loved Leaping Lizard. It was a short walk to several restaurants, shops and the beach. The house was beautifully decorated with a fun, classy beach theme. It had plenty of space and all the beds were very comfortable. The outdoor deck was spacious with nice big couches under a shade umbrella. We used the two bikes provided by the home owners and rented an extra bike from Ocean Motion which was right down the street. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else. Everything was perfect about this vacation house except it was missing 2 things.... a blender and a grill.
