                          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.
