My family of four - me, hubby, and 2 girls ages 6 and 7 - just loved every minute of our time at Leaves and Lizards. Debbie, Steve and Oscar made everything very easy. We had the Congo Cabin and the cabin, deck, and view were amazing. We stayed 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer. Make sure you stay long enough that you can actually enjoy the property, not just use it as a place to sleep. The grounds are large and interesting. I don't think you could get a better view then what we had and I could have used a few more afternoons just laying in the hammock on our deck. The horseback trip to the waterfall is fantastic, not to be missed. My girls LOVED it. The waterfall you go to is on one of the guides families property so no one else is there but maybe his neighbors and family. Very special. I could go on and on but really, just stay here and experience it yourself. It's wonderful.
