Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Mangoes is a very special place.....
Our large, comfortable, detached house is situated in its own private, lush, tropical gardens just across the road from the white beaches of Barbados' Platinum Coast and the Caribbean sea. Our guests feel welcome here and come to love it as much as we do which makes all that we do to improve it worthwhile.
We have three bedrooms with seven bed spaces so sometimes, our happy renters include a full-house of three generations of family or, possibly three couples; friends or sisters and brothers .... but we know that Mangoes is also ideal for couples. When there's a birthday or an anniversary or it's time to have that special romantic treat just for two, Mangoes is the perfect, most relaxing place in the world.
Whilst staying at Mangoes is obviously ideal for beach holiday lovers, it's worth saying that Barbados has a lot more to offer to tourists who are more adventurous and have a wide range of interests. As the whole island is only 21 miles long by 14 wide, it's eminently possible to mix and match your beach holiday with all manner of alternative activities - more about that later.

The St James Parish region
The Caribbean; balmy temperatures, cooling Trade Winds and warm, gentle waters ....... home to this delightful gem, Barbados, where bright colours and relaxation are the order of every day.
Barbados offers a unique cultural blend of the quaint with up-to-the-minute modernity, keeping the the best qualities of both eras. Warm, welcoming people with simple lives and old fashioned values live and work calmly, unscathed, in close proximity to modern standards, smart cars and stunning, brand new architecture.
On offer to the tourist is a fantastically varied coastline, from calm, Caribbean west-coast beaches with soft, white sand and lapping waters to huge cliffs and gigantic mushroom-shaped rocks pounded by the Atlantic waves on the east coast.
Attractions include wonderful botanical gardens with exotic tropical plants, a carefully preserved network of natural caves, historical plantation houses, rum distilleries and many types of water activities from tiny glass-bottom boats to much bigger fun cruises such as swimming with turtles from a catamaran or walking the plank from the Jolly Roger pirate ship!
Whatever you choose to do in Barbados, wherever you go, part of it will remain with you forever.
Sunset Crest is an ideal area to holiday. Set on the Platinum Coast of Barbados, this whole coastal strip has been successfully and sympathetically developed to bring together the best of Barbados traditions with modern day facilities.
Everything you could want is just a few steps away – banks, doctors, chemist (pharmacy) and a clean, well stocked, modern, supermarket with a wide range of local and imported foods.
In addition, restaurants and beach bars abound offering a wide variety of dining experience to suit all pockets ..... beach-side dining is very affordable and very, very special.
Souvenirs and gifts can be bought at the delightful chattel village as well as within cool and chic, air-conditioned stores at the nearby shopping malls.
Moving North, Sunset Crest gradually merges into historic Holetown, where the first settlers landed in 1627 and there is a week-long festival, every February to commemorate this.
The main west-coast highway runs the length of Sunset Crest and beyond; just cross to get to the beaches. The whole area is part of the Folkestone Underwater National Park and snorkelling, diving and other water sports are readily available.

"Wonderful Barbados villa"
For the past 5 years we have spent the winter months of January, February & March here in Sunset Crest, Holetown, Barbados. The last 2 years here at Mangoes, which meets our every need. Close to beac… More

"Everything previous reviewers have said is true - it is a perfect location and is very well maintained and comfortable"
The 5 of us stayed over New Year (3 boys, 8, 6, 5) and had a wonderful holiday. The villa is very comfortable, extremely clean and perfectly located. The beach is less than a minute's walk away a… More
Many thanks. I'm so glad you enjoyed Mangoes and our lovely area. Sounds as if you found my favourite beach too - which is one of those you mention turning left (South).
Lucille is a joy - we are lucky to have her - I'll pass on your comments to her, she'll be pleased as punch.
If you ever want to re-visit, please get in touch, you'd be welcome to come back and stay again!
For now, all best wishes for 2014!

"Great place, great location, excellent value"
Spent two weeks at lovely Mangoes with family. The villa is spacious, well appointed with a lovely garden and barbecue area that we made good use of. Bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens excellent. Very c… More
Thanks for this very complimentary review and factual snippets - always useful for future guests.
I'm glad you had a great time; just reading what you've written makes me realise how much I wish I could be going for a Mangoes-break myself right now.
Don't forget to contact us in the future if you'd like another visit, you'll be very welcome indeed.

"Exactly as advertised....beautiful private villa across the street from the ocean...excellent"
Simply lively private villa, all the comforts of home. AC in each bedroom so us northerner's can sleep. Lucille comes every few days to clean up. Close to shops, groceries, restaurants. Private c… More
If you don't mind, I'd like to add to this by pasting on the unexpected and unsolicited comments you wrote to me privately .....
Just wanted to send a quick note. My family & I stayed at your place with *** ******** last week.
It was just lovely. All the comforts of home, close to everything. And being across the street from the beach and the club's pool made it perfect.
Thank you so much, we would recommend the place without reservation."
I was particularly delighted to receive this AND the review from you - all the more because we'd had no previous communication as my work was all through your lead party *** as above.
A response like yours really gives my husband an I a boost and makes us feel that all our efforts to keep up the standards at Mangoes are worth while.
Thanks so much - we'd love to welcome you back in the future.

"A Wonderful Experience!"
Mangoes is a delightful, well-equipped villa that is literally 2 minutes walk from the beach. In its picturesque setting there are restaurants, bars and shopping a-plenty, as well as a private pool a… More
Thanks for this compact and very positive review.
We do get a lot of repeat guests and we find we have a new problem ..... we're beginning to question when we'll be able to stay at Mangoes ourselves - the calendar is filling for 2014 already!
That aside, we'd be happy to have you two amongst our regulars, so hurry back!
Cheerio, Cath and Ian

"Slightly 'Different' view of ;Mangoes'"
Firstly Big Thanks to Cath for all your help before we even left home.Mangoes is just Wonderful,and as everyone has said...Everything is spotless clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped wi… More
I must thank you for this lovely review.
Many thanks for my personal compliment - I do try to help guests with queries before their holiday and it's nice to hear that it makes people feel comfortable and at home right away.
Thanks too for your kind words about our staff; they are truly a Godsend.
The garden was probably what made me fall in love with Mangoes when I first saw it, some 10 years ago. It has taken a long time to nurture and coax it into shape and we still have further to go.
I enjoy gardening myself and do a bit of snipping, tying up and planting when I can (I'm not much good at digging unfortunately! Need bigger muscles!)
I hope you will be able to return to Mangoes, we and the staff would all love to have you back.

"Our 3 months at Mangoes"
We love Holetown in Barbados and this past winter stayed at Mangoes which made our visit all the better. Mangoes is lose to all amenities: shopping, Beaches, restaurants and banks.Lucille keeps the h… More
Thanks so much. I'm so happy to hear when people love Mangoes because I love it so much myself! For me it is the most relaxing place in the world.
I'm very glad you'll be returning, I enjoyed our regular communications by email and you will be most welcome.
I hope the weather at home is bearable for you after your balmy 3 months in Barbados.

"Lovely villa and perfect location!"
We had a wonderful stay at Mangoes. We were greeted by Lucille upon arrival. The location is great-2 mins walk to the pool, stunning beach and several restaurants. Another couple of minutes walk tak… More
Hi Tracy and Nigel,
Hi again - writing a post script now (April 2013) just to let you know that we DO now have Wifi and I'm glad to say that it works a dream! We've had no problems with it at all.
Thanks - very nice review.
Glad you liked Mangoes so much and had a great time and we look forward to having you back very soon!
Private Wifi is a bullet we haven't bitten yet. We fight a little shy of it as the last "technical installation" we had was the multi-choice TV which, due to Barbados' propensity for a bit of "manyana, manyana", took almost a year of complications to sort out. Difficult when we are 4,000 miles away in England most of the year. Wifi will happen.
At the same time, Barbados' wonderful laid-back approach to life makes it such a great place to relax totally on holiday - and it sounds and looks, from the photos, as if that's exactly what you did!
Well, that's what it's all about, isn't it?

"Tropical Bajan Paradise"
I had the pleasure of staying at Mangoes Villa with my spouse, kids and mom for 8 days in July 2012. The villa is absolutely clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated. There are all possible … More
Well, Mangoes is booking very well ahead into 2013, but somehow, I'm sure we'll find a space for you!
So glad you enjoyed it all - you love it for all the same reasons as we do.
Thanks for this very positive and detailed review, we look forward to hearing from you ..... as soon as you like!

"A lovely place to stay while enjoying paradise"
The holiday was fantastic and we both had a great time. The owner was thorough and organised with a pre-trip briefing of what to expect and how to prepare for a holiday on the island if you have not b… More
Goodness me! Here we are in 2014 and I have only just realised that I did not reply to your review almost two full years ago! Don't know how you "slipped though my net" as I always like to throw a little something into the pot and reassure guests that they are welcome back.
So, firstly, you would indeed be welcome to come back, please contact us at any time!
And, secondly, thanks for your comments. they reiterate exactly what everybody says about Mangoes; it's perfectly placed to access everything you could want whilst on holiday.
Can't wait for our own next visit!
Thanks again, Cath
