Wonderful property, as displayed, not one issue

Seamless process from start to finish, Property manager was on point and did everything we needed without hesitation. If you want to unplug, relax and enjoy wonderful beaches, this is the place. I would recommend this to any friend or relatives.

April Family Vacation 2018

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Monticello-Desert Rose over our April school vacation. We recommend this rental to any family who is looking for a pristine beach and privacy. We have two boys age 10 and 8 who spent countless hours playing in the ocean which is literally right outside the house. Even on windy days, the surf was safe and the children could play.

The caretaker Andre was great as well. He is a wealth of knowledge so take advantage of it. We recommend renting his car if available.

We plan on returning annually to experience the great food, culture and beaches that Eleuthera has to offer.

Beautiful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at Garden of Light end of April through early May. We flew into North Eleuthera airport and were picked up by the property's caretaker Mr. Gardiner and his son. We rented an SUV through Mr. Gardiner as well which was very easy. The property is secluded on the Atlantic side; there are two houses on the property although there are enough palm trees, foliage, and distance to where there house is very private. The beach was beautiful and the house was well equipped with beach chairs, snorkel gear, grill and all the kitchen amenities needed to cook well at home. There was AC in the house which worked well although it was rarely needed as it was easy to get a breeze through the house. Wifi was very reliable in the house. We were able to pick up fresh fish in Governor's Harbor (sold next to the water across the street from Eleuthera Supply) to grill at home (catch is variable, had grouper and crab available). Groceries at Burrows, veggies/fresh bread/cinnamon rolls at Island Farm Eleuthera (just south of South Palmetto Point). Island Farm also sells a nice map of the island (4 separate maps for different areas) which was nice to have. It was quite windy on the Atlantic side for most of our trip (which meant essentially no noseeums). Wouldn't hesitate to come back!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Desert Rose is a comfy, cozy, clean cottage set up perfectly for a couple. It is equipped with everything you need for the beach: cooler, nice beach chairs, umbrella (which we really appreciated because a lot of beaches do not have any shade), washer and dryer, wash line for hanging wet clothes, outdoor shower for cleaning up beach gear. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking anything.

The view of the ocean from the outside decks and inside as well is just spectacular! The beach tiki hut provides welcome shade along with a place to store your stuff while swimming, walking or kayaking. You can hear the waves at night which makes for great sleeping. The beach really is one of the best on the island and it was difficult to leave to explore other areas.

Tippys, Buccaneer Club, Bacchus Find Foods and Governor's Harbor are just a short drive away.

We have rented many VRBO's and this was one of our favorites!

Location is perfect... Best beaches on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Dessert Rose is a hidden gem. We spent most of our week on Eleuthera exploring different beaches and fishing off the rocks and flats. Tippy's restaurant is a short drive up the road and great for live music on Saturday and Wednesday nights. We will be back....

Our stay at the Desert Rose was amazing. The view & the house were breathtaking. Barbara was great and easy to deal with. Definitely will stay at the Desert Rose again. We recommend this property and owner.

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.

Other Activities: Kayaking
