Clean homey house, with a touch of traditional ornaments. Spacious bedrooms, very comfortable beds. Open living and dinning with pot belly stove. Very cozy.

Excellent family beach house, warm, generous, comfortable and unpretentious. Our daughter loved exploring the wardrobe full of toys and art materials and we enjoyed the comfortable adult bedrooms upstairs and the treetop deck. Located in a really quiet spot with a rambling garden, we enjoyed lots of meals on the rustic front deck listening to the birds. Jacques was a great host, he even alerted us in advance that a previous visitor had left a strong smell from cooking and what had been done to remove the smell before we arrived. It proved to not be a problem but we appreciated his quick and helpful communication. Thanks for a lovely holiday!

Dear Celeste, thanks very much for your positive feedback. It's great to know other families have connected with what the place has to offer. We also love to hear that kids have made themselves at home. You were an excellent guest and great communicator. Cheers Jacques.

This is quite a quiet area, in comparison to Cowes (where the action is), but we enjoyed the stay overall. The main two action points were the house needs a more thorough clean, including the insect screens, and the garden could really use with a tidy up (it was looking a bit too wild for us to let the kids run about). We certainly appreciated the toys, as that kept the kids busy when we were home. Kitchen was well equipped, although it could do with a new peeler.

We spent a couple of days at the Lazy Lizard over the Christmas break. The place is fairly well located to access beaches, shopping, food etc by car within around 10 minutes. The space is fine for a family holiday shack and would represent fairly good value for money had it been clean and tidy. Unfortunately it could barely manage the later and pretty much failed at the former. I don't think it benefits anyone for me to go through specifics here but suffice to say whoever is being paid the $80 cleaning fee at the Lazy Lizard is doing that name proud.

Dear Byron, Thanks for your review, but we are disappointed to hear you found the lazy lizard fell short of your expectations with regard to being clean and tidy. As you decided not to share specifics with us it's difficult to address any specific concerns with our cleaners. We can confirm that the house was cleaned on the 24th of Dec two days prior to your arrival. The cleaner texted me pics of the lounge and kitchen area after the clean and both were most certainly clean and tidy. With regard to any concerns over cob webs we will clearly have to alter our listing to mention the possibility of those as webs can be spun in just a few hours after cleaning. In an old rural home there simply isn't anything that can be done to ensure the house remains 100 perecent cob web free other than daily cleaning, which is not an option as we don't live on the island. With regard to the cost of cleaning, which you objected to, I think you would find that any on the books cleaner would charge at least 2 hrs or $80 to clean a three bedroom home with a fireplace and BBQ Included, these are fair market rates. However your concerns are noted and we will send this review through to our cleaners.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Lizard. The front deck was sun soaked in the morning so we enjoyed our breakfast outside. The gardens however need a little TLC, but the overall vibe of the house is lovely. Would be nice in winter to light the fire. Jacques was very prompt in his communication and allowed us to book quite last minute and was very accommodating. Many thanks

We were two couples with a kid each and stayed two nights during Melbourne cup weekend. There were definitely some good things at the place however it was all marred by the cleanliness of the place. Most of the common living place was full of cobwebs and looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly in a while. The kids bedroom was the main deal breaker for us. It had live spiders and lots of cobwebs on the blinds, on the bedding and the bunk bed. It was a major let down. We ended up having the kids sleep in the other bedrooms and didn't open this room again. The outdoor areas were in dire need of some maintenance and gardening, both backyard and front yard rendering them useless cause we were afraid of kids getting bitten by something in the tall and unruly grass. There were a quite a few good things like the fireplace and availability of firewood, lots of puzzles, games and toys for kids and it felt like effort has gone into this place. With a little maintenance and upkeep and a lot of focus on cleaning, the place can be quite good actually but a total let down for us due to the above mentioned issues.

We are sorry to hear that your stay was disturbed by your discomfort with the spiders. To assure you that you were in no danger we will let you know that daddy long leg spiders do not bite and are not harmful in any way. The house is cleaned regularly, twice a month and after every airbnb stay. However these pesky spiders are endemic on the island and are very industrious, they often appear again quite quickly a few days after cleaning. This is unavoidable in a rural environment like Rhyll. It appears we will need to fumigate to address the problem more permanently but have been delaying that as we prefer not to use toxic substances in the house. Your discomfort is noted and we will go ahead with fumigation this weekend.

Our stay at the Lazy Lizard was quiet and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the house is large enough to spread out. My wife and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
