OUR SECOND AMAZING VISIT TO JOLLY MON

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited Eleuthera in Dec. 2012 for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We fell in love with the island and this beautiful home. We returned this summer for 11 days with our 5 boys (ages 26, 23, 20, 16, 13) All I can say is that I am already planning my return visit and hoping to stay longer next time. Jane and Scott are fantastic hosts. From the very beginning of your trip they go out of their way to answer every question and make sure you have a very magical adventure. The home is more beautiful than the pictures portray. After exploring several beaches on the island our family decided that the beach right outside our home was the best beach on the island and why would you want to go anywhere else. We participated in the Fishbone Tour with Capatian Bubba and I highly recommend it. My boys had a blast and Julius and his wife Robin go out of their way to make your tour great. We purchased freshly caught fish and lobster from Tarpum Bay and Governor's Harbor and enjoyed making our own seafood feast. Visit Island Farm and you can purchase fresh vegetables at a reasonable price. We brought a cooler of meats and cheeses from the states with us and saved a lot of money. We also packed our suitcases with lots of dry products. It was nice to arrive to the home late in the day and have all of our food with us. We enjoyed Tippy's and Front Porch but decided that there was nothing better than eating the fresh fish caught just hours before we cooked it. We enjoyed snorkling, kayaking, exploring and just being together on the most pristine beaches in the world. I agree that a visit to Glass Window Bridge is worth the drive. My boys wanted to jump off the cliffs to but of course mom and dads wisdom prevailed. I also want to give a shout out to Del and Sandy who maintain the property. They are fantastic. We had a few problems with the internet and since I run a business and so does my son it was imperative that we have interent access each day. Del went out of his way to bring us a friends modem very quickly. Thank you again Scott and Jane for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We look forward to many more visits on this magical island.

Spectacular beauty meets peaceful tranquility!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6, including our 4 young adult children, stayed for a week in this amazing property. The layout of the house was perfect for us- the loft for our daughters, the studio for our sons & the master bedroom on the main floor for us. The house provided privacy and solitude when needed, as well as a wonderful place to gather in the family room or on the veranda, to be together. Our kids enjoyed the many electronic amenities, such as the wifi, an ipod with a fun selection of music, great speakers systems, laptop, and flat screen tv.
However, the main show here is the "unreal" gorgeous views from every room and the breath-takingly beautiful beach just beyond the house! I couldn't take my eyes off of it. The beach is just a short couple flights of stairs down from the backyard. Even the backyard is a pleasant sight, filled with green palms laden with coconuts, vegetation that attracts tons of beautiful butterflies, lizards, some unique, large Island birds. We snorkled the reefs on this beach often seeing an assortment of fish, a barracuda or two & a large sea turtle. We saw Brain Coral, Mustard Coral, and others.
Though we had a long list of things we wanted to see and do on the Island, we had a very hard time parting from this very special place, which we incidentally began to call "home." We did visit the Glass Bridge Window- a highlight of our trip, It's fun to climb the cliffs and see the different views of this magestic site. This spot is a photographers' dream. A couple of our kids wanted to jump off the cliff, which we estimated to be about 60-70 feet, but because the water on the Atlantic side was rough, they didn't get to. Whew!
We also visited Harbor Island and rented a golf cart to get around. We quickly saw the town and then swam in the beautiful water there which was the most unreal hue of blue water we have ever seen. We still preferred the waters at the Jolly Mon! We ate there at Dunmore Estates Restaurant for lunch. They serve delicious hamburgers and fries, which our guys were super pumped about because they had had their fill of grouper, conch and bland pizzas.
Our favorite eats: Tippy's, The Beach House, Da Perk, & the Friday Night Fish Fry in GH.
We visited Ten Bay Beach which was super for beachcombing! Sand dollars are abundant.
Many of our friends, seeing our pictures, now want to visit the Island (& The Jolly Mon) themselves! We can confidently recommend it and the Snyders, who are great to work with.
