Absolutely love the location of the condo

We stayed in the Garden of Light condo and it was our first experience with this type of vacation arrangement and we loved it. The condo is close to everything and in the end we liked our own beach the best of all we went to. If it's peace and tranquility your after, then this would be a great option...... The owner was very easy to deal with and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone thinking about going to Eleuthera.

Not the first time I stayed there, so no surprises, but as always a terrific house in a terrific location near GH, and a really nice and private beach. Would definitely stay again.

Barbara (owner) and David (Caretaker) were very helpful and responsive. DEFINITELY rent the car from Barbara. Cars on the island are not in good shape. Also, would recommend charging up cell just in case. Nice people everywhere. Favorite meal was "The Front Porch." Just read the reviews. The pictures and reviews for Monticello are accurate and the beaches are beautiful and quiet. If you are looking for a relaxing and beautiful vacation this is for you. Don't expect any late night activity or clubbing in GHB though. The meals are quite expensive but that's to be expected. If you'd like to save money on eating go local. "The Bakery" is to-go donuts/pasties that are cheap and delicious. "Burrows" is the better grocery store to go to down the road from the gas station, and "Ronnies" is a local bar with the owner Mark being a hoot! Safe everywhere. THANKS!

8 Amazing days in beautiful Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 29, 2013

8 amazing days on this beautiful island.The house was great and had everything we needed in order to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We were 2 families with young kids (two 1 year olds, 4 and 6 years old) and the house was very convenient for everything we needed to do. Amazing beach just below the house - we must have seen 5-6 people during our entire stay. The pictures on the website represent very well what the house really looks like and the beach is really fantastic (even though the ocean got really rough the last few days and even stole our kayak, which I luckily found later ½ mile away from the house). There are 2 bikes at the house – I took one of them a few times to take a 10 minutes ride to the nearby colorful village of North Palmetto where we would occasionally do some grocery shopping. I’m not much of a review writer, but would like to give some tips and short recommendations on thing we have done while being on the island – for beach lovers (especially if you have young kids) – please visit the Ten Bay beach (10-12 minutes drive from the “Garden of lights”) – amazing shallow beach (great for snorkeling as well); buy a Grouper from the local guy in Governor’s Harbour (he comes back after fishing around 2-3pm every day) and grill it on the BBQ (the most delicious fish I have ever eaten); visit the local Island farm – you can buy some fresh fruits and vegetables as well as very nice cheese; don’t miss the Friday night “Fish Fry” at Governor’s Harbor (if you’re without young kids you will have a lot of fun); take day trips to the islands of Spanish Wells and Harbour Island (about an hour drive away from the house) – take the water taxi and then rent a golf card to walk around the Island – this was amazing fun; visit the Tippy’s Point restaurant (less then 2 miles from the house – you can even walk on the beach and get to it) for dinner (make a phone call for reservation – it is safer) . Great island, hospitable people, peaceful heaven – anyone who has a chance to visit will love it. And at the end a few words about the owner Barbara – she is the most responsive and nice person I’ve ever dealt with – never got to speak to her on the phone, but every time I sent her an e-mail she has responded within a few hours. She has explained us in details everything we needed to know and it was a pure pleasure to communicate with her. I would highly recommend this beautiful house to anyone that is seeking tranquility and peace in the beautiful Bahamas

Amazing house on a spectacular Island

I can't say enough positive things about the house and island. They have everything you need to make it a pleasant stay. It was helpful to have items left over from others (bug spray, sunscreen, supplies, etc.) as well as a caretaker to provide help when necessary. Overall a spectacular time!

Monticello villa is centrally located on the Atlantic coastal side known as the Riviera of the Bahamas. We are in a secluded ,private gated 5 acre estate but only minutes from the main restaurants. It is an excellent area, very safe and quite. The pink sand beach is miles long, nearly always deserted and offers all sorts of different places to swim, you will usually find no one but yourselves. You can enjoy calm shallow crystal water, very swimmer friendly. Snorkeling enthusiasts will find much to keep them in the turquoise water.

Governor's Harbour is about 10 min /3.5 Miles away. There you will find grocery stores, banks, gift shops, dive shop and more. For more information and photos, please visit our website below, under Further Details.

Other Activities: Kayaking
