Overview

About the property

Luxury townhouse, located in a tranquil environment yet minutes from the beach

Mango Court is the perfect location for your holiday on the beautiful West Coast of Barbados. This townhouse is nestled in a quiet road just a ten minute stroll from the crystal clear Caribbean Sea and golden sandy beach.

Number 2 is one of just four houses set within a walled courtyard development which provides both privacy and security, and entry is gained by electronic gates. Set around a beautiful turquoise pool with two outdoor showers, the large front courtyard area is the perfect place to relax. Sun loungers and a large umbrella are provided, and the small covered front patio with comfortable chairs is an ideal spot for reading, or enjoying a glass of wine under the stars before heading out to dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants nearby.

This 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom property is the ideal home away from home for discerning couples, friends or families. Stylishly furnished to provide colonial style living, it has a light and airy feel with a spacious open plan lounge and French doors leading to a covered dining terrace, which looks on to a private courtyard garden. The hand built wooden kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for your stay. Upstairs there are two air conditioned double bedrooms, and two bathrooms.

Andrea, the Property Manager, will liaise with you before your holiday and answer any questions you have. She will be at the house to welcome you on arrival and be available throughout your stay to ensure you have everything you need. A weekly maid service is included along with a welcome pack of essentials to start you off (tea, coffee, bread, milk, butter, local beers and a bottle of wine)

Why Alex O'Neal chose St. James

I chose this location for its close proximity to the sea and all the entertainment that the West coast has to offer. There are beach bars for sundowners, excellent restaurants for special nights out and lively bars where the music is good, the beers are cold and the company always friendly.

What makes this house unique

The house is tucked away in a quiet location yet only minutes from everything.

Being just four properties here at Mango Court, with all four rarely being occupied at the same time, one has a real sense of space and peace.

Pretty villa in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is in a great location, close to lovely beaches, a bus stop, Holetown and restaurants. Alex & Jason are superb hosts and very attentive. The villa is spacious and light, furnished beautifully, spotlessly clean and well equipped. It was a great base for us to explore the island once again.

Relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

A very friendly welcome by Alex set the tone for our relaxing week at Mango Court.

Ideally situated for both beaches(walking) and Holetown (bus), we were able to find new places to enjoy, despite having stayed at both Sugar Hill and Westmorland previously.

The internal accommodation was relaxing and functional for four adults, with the charming pool courtyard a lovely place to relax.

Alex was kind enough to post on to us something we left behind on leaving; overall a very comfortable villa enthusiastically managed. Highly recommended.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Excellent customer service from Alex, felt that we had known her for years we were made so welcome. Property was just the job! Exactly as we expected it to be. Very clean and with all the comforts of home. We had a problem with the water in the ensuite and this was quickly sorted out. The position of the property was a real plus. 10 minute walk to a lovely beach which we had to share with very few other people. The buses were great, five minutes to Holetown. Lovely New Year's Eve at Zaccios, booked in for us by Alex before our arrival. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone. We would certainly rebook!! Thank you Alex, you're a star! x

Excellent Location and Attentive Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first visit to Barbados and we wished we had found this little gem of a property before. The decor, the location, and setting was perfect for a relaxing holiday and a base to explore the island.

The owners Mike and Doreen could not be more helpful and obliging - we will definitely return and would highly recommend.

Wonderful stay, place and oweners!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location on the beautiful west coast of Barbados! Mike and Doreen were wonderful to work with they were not only easy to work with but so helpful when we arrived. They greeted us with food and drink to kick off our stay – helping us to get settled in. We had access to all the great areas on the west coast. Our kids loved the beaches and enjoyed coming back to Mango Court at the end of the day to play in the pool. The unit itself was immaculate and very welcoming as we truly felt like we were in our own place and not a rental. Thanks for a wonderful stay and I’m sure we will be back!

Excellent Villa, Lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5

We visited Barbados with our daughter and partner, and rented the 2 bedroom Villa for 2 weeks, it was a perfect choice. The owners Doreen and Mike couldn't have been more helpful, the Villa was in great condition both inside and outside. Location is perfect for all the attractions on the West Coast, with one minute walk for regular and cheap buses, and 5 minutes walk to great beaches and restaurants, and 15 minutes walk into Holetown.

We have been to Barbados 8 times in the past and this is the first time we will have re booked the same accommodation when hopefully we return in 2 years time.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. After many years of renting houses with Owners Direct we have tried to furnish and equip our own holiday rental as we would like to find a property when we arrive for our holiday. Simple things like good white china, nice bed linen and comfortable beds etc can make a big difference to one's holiday experience. We have tried to create a 'home from home' and are delighted that you enjoyed and appreciated our efforts. It was a great pleasure to have you and your family stay and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to our adopted Island.

Mango Court is just a ten minute walk from both Heron Bay and Alleynes Bay. Both are beautiful golden sandy beaches where you can sunbathe, snorkel and swim, and have access to water sports, beach bars and top class restaurants.

Within a short drive are other beaches including Payne's Bay, Sandy Lane and Mullins with its lively beach bar. The South and East coasts are easily accessible and all worth a visit.

GOLF

Royal Westmoreland is 5 minutes away by car; Sandy Lane is a ten minute drive.

TENNIS

The Sugar Hill resort is nearby for those who wish to play during their stay.

WATER SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES

Enjoy the ocean - have a go at water-skiing or hire a jet ski. Boats and catamarans can be chartered for sightseeing, fishing, diving and snorkelling.

SIGHTSEEING

Bridgetown, the country’s capital and Heritage Area is worth a visit, and is approximately 30 minutes by car. Other places of interest are St Nicholas Abbey (approx. 25 mins away by car) and from here you can explore the beautiful rugged East coast which is on the Atlantic Ocean side of the Island.

SHOPPING/RESTAURANTS

Holetown is only one mile away. Here you will find the new Limegrove Lifestyle centre with its coffee shops, restaurants and designer shops. Holetown also has a good cross section of eateries from family eating to high end dining.

A large supermarket stocks local and foreign produce including Waitrose products, and there are 3 Banks in the area with ATMS. Close by is the Sandy Crest Medical centre which is open 24 hours a day.

HOW TO GET THERE

Grantley Adams International Airport is a 40 minute drive away.

Car hire is recommended in order that you can fully enjoy the Island but for those of you who do not wish to drive there is a bus stop two minutes down the road and buses are frequent and cheap. There are plenty of taxis available and trips around the Island can be arranged. Please note we drive on the LEFT here.

FURTHER DETAILS

Barbados is a small country with a huge diversity of activities to entertain and delight its visitors. Whether your interests lie in history, sport, nature or just enjoying the sunshine you will find lots to do here.
