AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all and immerse yourself in seclusion, then this is the place you will call Utopia. My wife and I absolutely loved our stay and couldn't be happier about our location. The water is so clear and the beach is to die for. We enjoyed the fish fry on Friday in Governors Harbor and the food at Tippy's was excellent, and this was all within just a few miles of our bungalow. Barbra worked with us and made sure we were taken care of even with the changes we threw at her last minute. The Greater Marsha, is absolutely the most beautiful person you will meet, she is friendly, informative and makes sure you are set up before she leaves you to your dream vacation. I would not hesitate for an instant to recommend Desert Rose.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying here and though there are a lot of options throughout the Bahamas, we won't waste our time surfing thru them all because we already found our paradise - and we've traveled to remote scenic paces all over. Right on the beach. What an amazing property. The home is way off of the main road, and in a very secluded part of the beach. The owner is great to work with and their caretaker is also on point.

Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

We loved Desert Rose. Better than expected. The house, the grounds, the location, the view, the serenity - all perfect. We lacked nothing. Marsha was fantastic. Thank for providing a little piece of paradise for us to enjoy, and for making it all work out smoothly.

Best Place on The Island!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what can I say! This was the most wonderful, relaxing vacation ever! Upon arrival, Miss Marsha greeted us and took us through the house, explaining every little ting. The cottage was tidy and clean, and it was perfect timing for an evening rum punch on the deck overlooking the crystal clear and stunning Atlantic. There was a nice breeze throughout our stay which was very welcome - we did not need the A/C at all, but then again, we are "fresh-air" types. We ventured out for two days of our 8 night stay - once North to Harbor Island & Spanish Wells, and another day south, to go shelling, beaching and have a delicious home-cooked Bahamian lunch by Miss Rose at Northside Inn at Rock Sound. (Call ahead - a real treat!) We brought back fish from the local fishermen in Spanish Wells and cooked it on the gas grill under a shady deck at Desert Rose for the next two nights - heavenly! The kitchen was very well stocked, with everything one needs - being the homebodies we are, we stayed in every night and cooked our meals in, enjoying the deck, balcony, hammock and - during the day - lunch under the thatched roof palapa on the beach - taking shelter from the sun, but taking many dips in the perfect temperature of the Atlantic and floating around on rafts......after our two trips North & South, we both agreed that Desert Rose was in the BEST location with the BEST beach and stayed put the remainder of our week....we had the beach entirely to ourselves during our stay - it doesn't get any better. And Barbara engages the services of a gardener twice weekly who keeps the grounds - and most importantly the beach - in pristine condition. As you stroll down the miles long beach, you will see that most do not do that, so "your" patch really is Paradise! It was great to see my husband totally chill out after all the stress of work - a rare and much-needed sight!! Barbara was great at offering suggestions and answering any questions via email. My picky husband, when asked to rate it on a scale of 1 - 10 - said "12"......'nuff said! Thank you so much, Barbara and Marsha for an idyllic stay!

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.

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.
