vacation rental description

Stroll out of mangoes’ back garden gate and across the road to the beautiful platinum coast sands and the caribbean sea. Grab a towel and take the tiny 'swimming key' and off you go!

Our property could not be better placed; we have the sea and beaches less than two minutes walk and a variety of shops, restaurants, bars, banks and a well stocked modern supermarket on the doorstep! Furthermore, the beach club and swimming pool, belonging to local residents and their guests, is also just across the road, with excellent facilities and sun decks and a restaurant at the water's edge!

Mangoes is a large, detached, single storey house. I have an ambition to put a sun deck on the roof where my husband and i (and our guests, of course) can relax whilst watching the setting sun wink green as it dips behind the caribbean horizon .... Dream .... Dream. Back to the reality of now .... The house is very private, being set in large, lush tropical gardens with big gates (safe for children) opening out onto the local roadside at the front and onto the greenbelt and car park at the back. The back gate is the quickest route to the sea.

Outdoor living in barbados is a joy - the weather is so wonderful.

To access the full enjoyment of the outdoors, mangoes offers pure relaxation on the spacious verandah, furnished with a comfortable cane suite comprising couch, two arm chairs and coffee table. This is a superb situation to enjoy warm, velvety caribbean nights, being well lit for reading and overlooking the front garden, pleasingly lit up by well placed spotlights and an arch of fairy lights.

A pine dining set make the verandah and nice place to have lunch too, it being pleasantly shady at that time of day.

A favourite dining area for breakfast is the gazebo, furnished with a stone table and benches, set in the rear gardens. Be prepared to share breakfast with tiny yellow banana birds!

Right next to the gazebo is a sturdy, built in barbecue, with lighting to help keep your culinary efforts on track, and for more formal dining, there is a smart, well furnished “al-fresco' dining room leading from the spacious lounge.

The lounge is furnished with an attractive cane three, two, one suite, coffee table, occasional tables with lamps, telephone, tv cabinet (video and dvd player) and book shelves. There are ceiling fans and this is a breezy room with three sets of french windows, one (double doors) lead into the 'al-fresco' dining room whilst the other two sets lead out onto the verandah. To maximise the breeze, rather than closing the glass doors, there are attractive, lockable, wrought iron gates as an alternative.

For maximum flexibility, mangoes offers seven bed spaces in three spacious bedrooms – one twin/king, one twin/queen and one with three single beds. The three bedded room can be made up as a double plus single and there is a fold-away cot.

Each bedroom is equipped with wardrobes, full length mirrors, washing basket, bedside tables with lamps, hairdryer, ceiling fans and split system air conditioning - at no extra cost!

There are two recently refurbished and re-tiled bathrooms, both with large walk-in showers; seat within in master bathroom.

The kitchen, completely renewed in 2011 with white cupboards and black granite benches, is well equipped, with pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, big stove, fridge/freezer, toaster, coffee maker etc. It opens out through a half glazed door to the rear gardens and gazebo.

There is also a wash room with front loader for guests use, under cover washing lines and the maid's washroom with top loader and tumble dryer (to keep the towels nice and soft).

Mangoes comes with maid service twice per week (no extra charge for this). The maid will change and wash bed linen and towels, sweep and wash floors, clean bathrooms etc.

Back outside, there is a car port with space for two cars and a further two could easily park on the drive.

Nb. The telephone makes free calls around the island. It is not possible to make off-island phone calls but it is possible to receive calls from abroad.

traveler reviews for this barbados villa rental

Brilliant Barbados

Review submitted: December 27, 2013   Date of arrival: December 6, 2013

The first thing to mention about Mangoes is it's location, it's brilliant! Situated in a pleasant residential area it is only minutes away from the beach, shops and restaurants as well as good very cheap local bus services. The house has character and the owners appear to have thought of everything. The modern kitchen is well equipped, bathrooms are both nearly new and the bedrooms are all well presented and equipped. The lounge is also well equipped and the dining room is an absolute delight as it has mesh netting windows to 3 sides which keeps it cool. All windows and doors have security bars. For those enjoying outdoor living the large verandah and gardens are ideal. The owner's were extremely helpful in both the booking and during our 16 day trip in December 2013, and we would recommend Mangoes to anybody looking to enjoy a relaxing holiday, be careful though it could be habit forming!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Hi there,
Thanks for this very informative and positive review. The detailed description is really useful for future travellers.
It was a pleasure to have you stay at Mangoes and I hope it is habit forming as you'd be very welcome to come back.
