Step off the patio and you are on a beautiful pink sand beach. Our home, beautifully landscaped by our gardener with coconut palms, colorful hibiscus and native plants, offers a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. Featuring two bedrooms and a loft, cathedral ceilings in the great room, and a library, the windows covering the entire front give an unobstructed view of the turquoise water and pink sand beach. Our caretakers, Edgar and Doreen, will assure that our home is ready for your visit. Edgar can also arrange for transportation from the airport and for a rental car. Maid service is also available.
Located just one mile from Governor's Harbour, groceries, fishing supplies, and shopping are easily accessible. Governor's Harbour is the center of Eleuthera so you will be able to find anything you will need. Eleuthera, rated by Fodor's Travel Guide as one of the most beautiful of the Bahama islands, is waiting to be explored. You will find quaint villages, where the natives are eager to greet you with a wave and a smile. Talk with the natives and learn all about the island.
There are miles of secluded and deserted pink sand beaches where you can swim and snorkel in the spectacular crystal clear turquoise water, which averages 70 to 80 degrees. Beautiful coral reefs are right off the beaches where you will see many colorful tropical fish. While relaxing on the beaches, bask in the sunlight, feel the refreshing ocean breeze, and watch the gentle waves. Walk the beaches and find that perfect shell.
Eleuthera offers both world class bone fishing and deep sea fishing. For the adventurous there is a quarter mile long cave waiting to be explored. All of this is within one hour of Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Miami, which offers direct flights.
We stayed here for 10 days over Xmas and New Years and had a wonderful time. The house is right on a great beach. The snorkelling is good. There are 2 kayaks at the house to play with. It is a 20-25 minute walk to town so you might want a rental car. The kitchen is well equipped and there were even snorkels and masks in the cupboards and lots of towels provided. The outdoor shower is great and even has hot water.
I normally don't write reviews, but this home and beach are so beautiful I had to make an exception. My husband and I have rented this home several times since 2010. The house is beautifully furinished with high speed internet and satellite TV that worked without problems. DVD player with a large library of good movies. Everytime we have come to Mon-Soleil, we have found new updates the owners have made. The beach is beautiful with pink sand, no rocks. The sands slope so gentle you can walk out 100 yards and still be only waist deep. The water is so clear you can still see your feet.. Edgar, their house keeper set us up with a nice rental car and took care of any of our needs. Eleuthera is NOT your typical tourist trap. There are so many things to see, do, and several nice shops to visit. We can't wait to go back. The owners were very nice people to work with. us.
We hardly set our bags down before we walked the short path to the beach. The pink sand, crescent beach took our breath away. And the snorkeling right in front of the house was more than we could ask for in a beach vacation. The house was just right for the two of us and a friend. Walking to the Beach House restaurant was an option we used multiple times during our stay. Mon Soleil was a very comfortable home and it was always nice to leave the beach and be home in 1 minute. We will definitely be back next year.
This was by far the most breathtaking spot on the Island. The water in front of the house was crystal clear. Myself and 4 friends just returned and are ready to turn around and go back. We bought fresh fish and lobster from the fishermen right in front of the house and cooked our meals every night in the well equiped kitchen. Why eat out when you can have dinner with such a great view. We did visit the fish fry and the new Tapas restuarant 3 doors up for our lunch. The food was fantastic. Myself and my friends would all reccommend staying at Mon Soleil. It was the closest vacation to Paradise that we have ever been.
My girlfriend and I stayed here last February and had a great time. We rode bikes into town often, walked to tippy's resturant for dinner a couple times and snorkeled at the house almost everyday. (we saw some awesome fish!) A great place, you won't have any regrets renting this property and the owners are great.
This is a great location and the setting is breathtaking. Beach is beautiful and hard packed for walking. The ocean was calm the first two days and rough the rest due to a cold front. We didn't get to snorkel here, but went to Rainbow beach and had fun there. The house was very comfortable, had everything you needed and a/c worked great. For any TV people, there were few satelite channels and no major networks. We also missed having highspeed internet. Would definitely come back here, though, for the location and view.
