Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I would love to say that this house was horrible so that it's always available for rental. But I can't. It was perfect. Very central location to everything. A few restaurants and grocery shopping is available in near by Governor's Harbor. Truly amazing basically private beach. It was a rare day that we'd see anyone else at the beach. One lesson learned was that if the Atlantic side is rough, the nearby Carribean side will probably be calm. If heading to the other side of the island, I'd highly recommend Ten Bay beach. If you're looking for a beautiful beach house that's a little off the beaten path.... But not too far off of it... Dessert Rose is the perfect rental. The owner, Barbara, is amazing. Extremely responsive with any questions and does everything she can to ensure you a stay in paradise. Can't wait to be back.

Picture Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to visit Eleuthera and so happy we picked Desert Rose for our stay because it was just perfect for the two of us. Right on the Atlantic and the beach is simply gorgeous and we rarely saw anyone on it. The water is so clear and I didn't get the least bit nervous about swimming which I can when swimming in an ocean with all its creatures and rip tides, etc.. I think it's because I don't know much about oceans, but anyway just the best.

Barbara, the owner, was great about sending us all sorts of information and Marsha, the manager of Desert Rose was also great. Thank you! I could go on, but the other reviews have pretty much summed up the experience. We will be back.

Simply Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a gem. I am conflicted giving away such a special place as I want it all to myself, but Barbara deserves the review for keeping such a lovely hideaway. It’s a bumpy rural sand road (shared by neighboring houses) to the house. The house is very well maintained with all the modern amenities (dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, gas barbecue, new A/C units, etc). Kitchen was well stocked with cookware, but bring your own spices/condiments are none were present. Nice open kitchen/main room with a master bedroom (king bed) and a kids room (bunkbeds). You are right on the ocean with a private set of steps down to the waves. The beach is gorgeous – it’s the Atlantic so it can be rough. We only saw a couple of other people the whole time were there.

Its about 15-20min drive to Governors Harbor. We ate most of our meals at the place as we love to cook. We ate a Tippy’s one night (it’s a 5 min drive) and it was good but very expensive. Food is very expensive in general on this island. Meat is a premium in cost. Vegetables were scarce, but it was off season.

We rented a small SUV and were very glad to have it. Main road is pretty good (some tire eating potholes) but side roads require more clearance. Back home, I 4x4 and some of these roads required my driving skills. We saw sedans driven down and around the large potholed side roads, but I wouldn’t take my sedan down those roads. And the trees grow in so it will scratch up you vehicle – ours was already broken in (1,084,000km) and well scratched, which was prefect for us.

There is a guest register in the house filled with places to visit and get groceries, so I won’t go into those details. Each day we visited a new, mostly deserted beach – each one gets top marks for being one of the best beach I have ever been on. And I have been on a lots of beautiful beaches!

If you prefer cruise ships and crowds, and need people around to feel safe, then don’t go here. On the issue of safety, we felt very safe here. The locals rely of our dollar to keep them living there so they like tourists not like some places in Mexico where you can free uneasy about trusting locals. There is virtually no crime on this island.

For the adventuresome types, don’t go here when I want to as I am going back. Barbara was wonderful to deal with. This vacation was a 12+ out of 10

Truly the tropical paradise we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we drove up and were met by Marsha, we knew we made the right choice. The location, the house, the ocean view and the reefs for diving just off the beach - were all better then expected. Desert Rose is a very comfortable home. Our favorite spot, besides the water, is the deck overlooking the beach. It also made the perfect place for stargazing at night, the sky is so clear we lost count of shooting stars and moving satellites. For the 2 weeks we stayed at Desert Rose, every day was awesome. Thanks Barbara for letting us stay at Desert Rose.

Escapism and Paradise at its best.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay! It was peaceful and beautiful. The Home was away from the main road and was very private as was the beach which was amazing! I grew up on a beach that is often referred to being one of the top beaches in the U.S. and I’ve also traveled quite a lot – the sand and water at this location on this island is the best by far. If you are looking to get away for a week of downtime this is the place. The ownership and their host were excellent. You can be as active or relaxed as you wish... kayaking to a great bar / restaurant, snorkeling the many patch reefs, swimming in the pool-like water, etc. The house was perfect. Enough space, we were able to cook and grill when we wished and all the comforts of home. There is a tranquility and positive energy here that allows one to recharge. Thank you to our hosts for an amazing week!

Beautiful and right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Desert Rose was unbelievable! Barbara (owner) was very prompt in answering our email questions, and the property manager, Marsha, was delightful. She even met us with fresh cut flowers!

The beach in front of the property is so beautiful, and we did not see one other person the entire time we were there! The water was a l ittle rough and cold for us to snorkel (a harider soul would probably ahve no problem) but we enjoyed Ten Bay beach on the Caribbean side - about 15 minutes away - and spent a lot of time there.

We went north one day to Harbour Island, and though it was nice, we couldn't wait to get away from the tourist crowds and back to Desert Rose! Also one day we went south to Lighthouse Beach - not an easy feat, but well worth it. Stunningly beautiful!

If you want something that is off the beaten path, but has everything you need, then this property is for you! It's about 10 minutets from the town of Governor's Harbour. We enjoyed the Levy Preserve and ate twice at Buccaneers. Tippy's was OK but pricey for what you got.

Thanks again Barbara and Marsha for making us feel so welcome!

Monticello property 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, safe and very 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 sea.

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 information please visit our website below under Further Details.
