We had a wonderful stay at Monticello! I came with my husband, 2.5 year old son, brother-in-law, and 6-year-old nephew. I was worried initially about how kid friendly it was going to be but it was perfect. Lots of sand toys - pails, snorkels, bocce balls, floaties, beach chairs, boogie board,... tennis & badminton rackets, bicycles... Unfortunately the kayaks had blown away in a wind storm before we arrived so we rented from a local guy that Barbara had recommended and had a great day visiting the cays off North Palmetto beach.
Clean. Lots of towels. Washer & dryer. Well equipped kitchen. Lots of fans - we didn't need to use the AC because it cooled off a fair bit at night. Lots of lounging areas around the property - my favourite was the comfy couch on the back deck!
We rented a minivan from BigE's car rental which was great - didn't test it out on the lighthouse beach road but otherwise even some of the bumpy roads were fine! They met us at the airport and guided us to the property which was very helpful after a long journey getting there to begin with.
Kelly - the manager - was very helpful. Booked us a reservation at the nearest restaurant - Tippy's for our first night which was great. Offered to buy groceries before our arrival and book a private chef.
Our favourite spots were the Bank Road Deli - great cold cuts, cheeses, sandwiches, croissants and coffee!!; The local nature preserve was beautiful and fun; Ten Bay Beach; Governor's Habour friday night fish fry; the Ocean Hole; The Beach House Restaurant...
Felt very safe at the property and on the island in general.
Barbara was most helpful with setting up our stay. Would recommend to anyone! Hope to be able to come back again one day. Thank you for sharing your place!
