Perfect Island Getaway🌴❤

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying if you are looking for a place with all the comforts of home, the beach just steps away and some of the most perfect sunrises ever you've found it.

Beyond the travel related problems due to the glass window bridge being closed, our vacation was perfect!

We arrived 2 days late due to some northeastern storms and found the Glass Window Bridge to be closed. Our car was not there to meet us at the North Eleuthera airport, however the locals were amazing helping, us get where we needed to go. Taxi 99 took us to a local reasturant and held up a boat that was kind enough to ferry us to Gregory Town. Once there more locals helped us get in contact with our car rental agent to get a new vehicle we were able to access from that side of the island. Once we finally got going we arrived at the house to meet Jane. Due to storm surges, the Atlantic Ocean was not safe for swimming. Jane was so nice, waited for us to get ready and took us to a local swimming spot on the Bahamien side of the island. The water was so crystal clear, warm and calm.

Our party of five spent 5 amazing nights at the Jolly Mon and we can not wait to return.

I would recommend staying here and being up in the mornings for the sunrises.

Good places to eat would be the 1648 restaurant and The Buccaneers Club.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Jolly Mon! Jane and Scott have a fantastic house and we were fortunate enough to have a perfect week, weather-wise. It doesn't get much better than that! We got word of a jazz group that plays live music on the beach at James Cistern Thursday nights and went to that. We also went to the fish fry on Friday but liked the Thursday night gathering much more. Friday was LOUD music and mostly tourists (not like it used to be with residents also attending) and Thursday's was smaller, friendlier and with better food. Most of our time was spent relaxing on Jolly Mon's perfect beach, though we did take some day trips. Ten Bay Beach is a favorite with its calm waters, and the Glass Window is always worth a trip. Have been visiting Eleuthera since I was a child and it is my favorite vacation spot. Now my grandchildren are loving it. Truly a paradise that appeals to all ages!

Thank you Jane and Scott for your hospitality. We hope to see you again next year!!

Had a wonderful stay at Jolly Mon!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay and had a wonderful time! The house, location and amenities were perfect for both relaxation and amusement. Jane and Scott thought of everything! Restaurants were wonderful suggestions and there was enough variety that we ate at a different place every night. We chose to eat at home for our breakfast and lunch and venture out for dinners. We booked a private boat tour to snorkel and swim with the pigs on Spanish Wells. We also spent a few hours at the Levy Nature Preserve and went to the Friday night Fish Fry. Our daughter spend time snorkeling in the reef right in front of the house. The surf board and kayaks were fun! Spending our mornings enjoying a cup of coffee, listening to the ocean right outside our door was incredible. Wonderful vacation all around for our family of five with two teens and a nine year old. We will be back!!

4th visit in 5 years!!!! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Luxury and privacy are the two words to describe this home. If you are looking for a vacation where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy peaceful, beautiful and secluded beaches then Eleuthera Island and this beautiful home is the place for you. This is our 4th visit in 5 years to the island and staying in Jolly Mon, and we will certainly be back. Scott and Jane are the most gracious hosts. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and the home was perfect for our arrival. The home is even more beautiful in person. The views are breathtaking and the beach is the best beach on the island. We were there for 7 nights for this trip and we didn't see anyone on the beach the entire trip. We enjoyed long walks on the beach, swimming, and much more. It is obvious this home is a rare gem on the island and one of the best. Scott and Jane have poured themselves into this home and when you enter it feels like home. We are already planning our next visit. Love this island love this house! Thank you Scott and Jane for another amazing trip!

Best Eleuthera Vacation Yet

  • 5 of 5

This summer’s vacation trip to Eleuthera was our fifth, but the first time staying at Jolly Mon. Property photos, descriptions, reviews, and correspondence with owners gave us a clue of what to expect. However, upon arriving at Jolly Mon those expectations were far exceeded! The location in North Palmetto Point is a good central location for exploring all parts of the island. The beach in front of the property is great for swimming and snorkeling. The owners have done an excellent job at design, construction, furnishing, and maintenance of all aspects of Jolly Mon. The maintenance and housekeeping staff were very helpful and courteous. Jolly Mon will be our first choice when we plan our next vacation in Eleuthera.
