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....

Wow!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!!! We arrived at this location and we thought we had reached heaven!!!! Absolute paradise. So private, we only saw 3 other people on the beach in 6 days. Pristine sandy beach for miles, amazing star gazing at night. We fell in love with Desert Rose !! Barbara was so easy to communicate with. Made our experience that much nicer. We will definitely be back one day.

Desert Rose Cottage Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Desert Rose Cottage on Eleuthera. Barbara was easy to communicate with and efficient; she was quick to answer our emails and provided us with directions to the cottage and information on renting a car. The cottage was beautiful, and the views were outstanding. It had everything we needed. We loved being right on the beach and close to the town of Governor's Harbor. We walked down the beach to the Montecello Resort for lunch and up the beach to Tippys for cocktails. We also ate two delicious dinners at Tippy's and enjoyed the live music on Saturday night. We ate two fancy dinners at the 1648 Bar and Grille on the French Leave Resort, which were excellent. We spent a couple of days exploring the island, and highly recommend Ten Bay Beach. We also traveled an hour to Harbor Island, which also had a beautiful beach. We hope to return in the future.

Amazing property and spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed January 14-21, 2018. The house itself has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The kitchen is well equipped, shower has a good flow and hot water, and there is wifi and satellite TV and DVDs. The house also has a cooler and beach chairs for use, which are most welcome. The house has multiple decks and a tiki hut, a grill, and washer/dryer. Beautiful views at your doorstep and the sound of waves crashing can be heard inside. We didn't have great weather, but we made the best of it. Barbara the owner made sure we were settled before coming to the island and stayed in contact for any questions. Frankie the property manager greeted us, answered our calls for questions promptly, and wished us safe travels home. Highly recommend!

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.
