About Lisa Carroll

We live in London, but come over to Barbados and Mango house for a couple of months each year.

Lisa Carroll purchased this villa in 2010

Why Lisa Carroll chose Lascelles

We always loved the look and location of this house on many of our previous trips. Then on one trip it was for sale and it was the right time for us to be able to buy it. We love Mango house it's our home away from home

What makes this villa unique

There is a huge mango tree in the garden with delicious mangoes when in season. The monkeys visit for breakfast and feast on the mangoes which is great fun to watch. It is close to the beach and facilities of Holetown, but still has that residential quiet feel about it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got home from two weeks at Mango House, and wish we were still there! The house was very clean and tidy, very well equipped, and the photos shown on the ad are exactly what is there. Georgiana (the housekeeper) was very friendly. Our favorite part was sitting in the outdoor seating area; we sat out there reading for the majority of our time there, which was exactly what we needed to relax. We enjoyed seeing the monkeys (although not so much the mess they made throwing mangoes into the yard - ha, ha!) and the flowers in the yard were beautiful. It was close enough to walk to the grocery store and the little chattel shops and restaurants, and the beach is just across the street. We were glad of the laundry facilities, as we tend to pack light. We would definitely recommend Mango House, and I'm sure we'll back back there again.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

As I begin my review of Mango House, I would be remiss, if I began without mentioning Wayne, the delightful, informative, charming driver, who picked us up at the airport and Georgiana a most endearing, capable and organized housekeeper! Welcome to Barbados, laughter & stories and both, Wayne & Georgiana, sincerely genuine in their character, gave us a very positive way to begin our wonderful stay at Mango House!

By the time we reached the gated, well lit and secure entrance, thanks to Wayne, our anticipation of arriving at Mango House, was met with

absolute amazement at the vision before us !!! Much more than we expected and upon entering Mango House, we were enveloped in an overwhelming feeling of calm! Georgiana had the house, spotless and well prepared for our stay. Thank You Georgie for taking care of all our needs and making sure we were comfortable.

Mango House, did have everything we needed and then some! Never knew that a house could be so snug and comfortable - a complete joy!

Beautiful gardens surrounding the house, Mango and Coconut trees, lots of shade, flowers and foliage, walled-in fence, all providing privacy and giving it a magical feel. The only visitors who required no invitations, were the Green Monkeys, young and old, Mongooses, Lizards and Birds. No need to set your alarm in the morning, the islands Roosters are happy to oblige!

Early morning breakfast on the Lanai, a romantic setting, were we would enjoy coffee, toast, Anchor Butter, slices of Anchor Cheese, Guava Jam, occasional Bacon and Eggs. I mention our breakfast, mostly to encourage you to try the Anchor products and don't forget Guava Jam - also worth mentioning, is the non-alcoholic drink, Sorrel - delicious !!

Situated in Holetown, St. James, Mango House rests in a quiet neighborhood, a few minutes walk to the breathtaking beaches, Bars, Restaurants, high-end clothing stores , shops and the well stocked supermarket, Massy's. Reliable public transportation is available very near the house, just around the corner! Lisa and Steve, have provided the house with maps, guide books and their own list of recommended attractions , activities to try and the best restaurants.

Truly, a Home Away from Home!!!!!

Once again, thank you Lisa and Steve! A most remarkable stay!

Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Mango House is a comfortable bungalow set back in a private road yet only ten minutes from the centre of Holetown where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Our favourite was Zaccios, a good all rounder. The beach is just a short walk away with good snorkelling just out from the man made reefs.

The kitchen area has everything you need to prepare and cook a Bajan meal, and lovely breakfast bar.

There is a cool conservatory to relax in, the bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of storage facilities. The lounge area has very comfortable furniture to sit and relax .

The garden is a delight, beautifully tended with exoctic plants and lovely just to relax in. We were fortunate to see a trio of monkeys one morning raiding the mango tree, a real treat.

Housekeeping by Georgina is excellent along with overall good security.

Would highly recommend Mango House

Great house in a brilliant setting

  • 5 of 5

Mango House is a brilliant place to stay in a very central location in Holetown and just across the road from a lovely clean beach with crystal clear warm water. The house was comfortable, well equipped and had a beautiful garden - we were lucky enough to taste the mango's right from the tree. Georgiana the housekeeper was very friendly, helpful and kept the place clean.

We enjoyed the water sports at the beach and were lucky to see the turtles in the late afternoon swimming off the rocks there and the monkeys in the trees. We also managed to scuba dive with Hightide Watersports - great underwater scenery and the opportunity to dive our first wreck. Food was great - enjoyed the fish fry at Oistins and also trying the very good value and tasty food from the local food stalls just round the corner from the house.

We would definitely recommend a stay at Mango House and hope one day to return ourselves!

Location, Location, Location: Mango House

  • 4 of 5

When Lisa asked us to write a review for Mango House and our 10-day Barbados vacation, my initial reaction was to say no. It's not that the Mango House failed to meet expectations or lacked charm, it's just that we were so rarely there. And that is why we would definitely do it all over again, hopefully next year!

We spent half the day at the beach - Mango House is right across the road from a Public Access point to the local beach where we not only swam and lounged but also met a local turtle, whom we nicknamed Disco as he (she?) could often be found patrolling the reef in front of the Discovery Bay hotel. And half the day discovering - Though I wouldn't recommend doing it barefoot, we walked several kilometers in either direction along the beaches; all the way past Sandy Lane to the south and past the Folkestone National Marine Park to the north. Stopping for an occasional Banks beer at one of the many beachside restaurants (Surfside was our favourite) or a quick dip in the Caribbean Sea to cool off. If ever we wandered too far and lacked the energy to walk back to Mango House, we simply strolled up to the road and hopped one of the ubiquitous yellow buses that stop directly at the corner. Tip: Tell the driver to let you off at the Discovery Bay hotel to avoid any confusion.

All necessary conveniences (Massy Supermarket, specialty shops, fruit and vegetable stand, restaurants of all kinds and price points, etc.) are within short walking distance. The only convenience we couldn't find locally was a fish market but we happened upon a charming little market with fresh flying fish, Mahi Mahi and many others in Payne's Bay just a few kilometers south.

This wasn't our first trip to Barbados but it was our most extended and we were so pleased to have access to the amazing Mango House amenities (outdoor shower - sweet! - if only it offered more privacy) and its most priceless resources (Hi Georgie and Harry!). Harry even helped me find my childhood home in Christchurch Parish, which I hadn't been able to do in three previous attempts.

We will miss the island, the people and Mango House until we are lucky enough to return, which we hope will be in 2018!

We just spent a wonderful 15 days at Mango House. The house had EVERYTHING we needed. It was spotless when we arrived and was exactly as presented on Home Away. The outside patio was our favorite place to sit and relax after a day at the beach or first thing in the morning before heading out for the day. So cool to see the monkeys in the yard when they dropped by to say hello. The location of the house was perfect. It was a short walk to get groceries at Massy's, have dinner at one of the many restraraunts close by or spend the day at the beach. When we wanted to head out of Holetown to check out some of the other attractions we were only minutes away from the bus stop. We enjoyed the fish fry at Oistons one Friday night, we visited the Barbados Wildlfe Reserve and loved seeing the monkeys playing in their natural habitat, loved Mullens Beach and Paynes Bay. The pizza at Zaccios was awesome and we had a couple of dinners at Just Grilling who offered great food at a reasonable price. Lisa and Steve were wonderful to work with and even made arrangements for someone to pick us up upon arriving. We look forward to coming back to Barbados someday and will definitely want to stay in this lovely home again.

The villa is a 5 minute walk North of Holetown, which has a shopping centre with supermarket and duty free shopping. The Limegrove shopping complex is literally around the corner. Limegrove houses many designer shops, restaurants, bars and the cinema.There are many local restaurants and bars within walking distance. Most of the restaurants and bars are situated on 1st and 2nd Street which is only a five minute walk from the house.

It is not necessary to have a car. There is an excellent bus service that runs along the main road and a bus stop just around the corner. The West Coast beaches, which are only a short walk from the villa are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing.
