“An ideal place to kick back, enjoy views, beaches & Bequia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We rented the downstairs unit (2 BR, 2 BA) from mid-December – early January and were the first renters for the winter season. There were a few minor maintenance issues, fans, lights, lower pool, all of which were quickly resolved by the extremely helpful owners who were staying at the upstairs unit at the time.

The view and location over Lower Bay was excellent - easy downhill walking to Lower Bay Beach (and its restaurants) AND Princess Margaret Beach and its beach bar. Port Elizabeth is only a couple of miles away - either a pretty good walk on a busy road or an easy local minibus or taxi ride in (taxis into town are cheaper from the bus stop, a 5 minute walk at the junction with the main road).

We found the home spacious and well-stocked equipment-wise. There were ample pots and pans for our cooking efforts. The towels were thick and comfortable; beds in good shape, and beach towels were provided, too. There were ample comfortable chairs and lounges for sitting and eating our meals on the veranda. Bequia has mosquitoes, so pack your bug repellent as the house is not screened but there is mosquito netting over all the beds.

Kathy our housekeeper, was helpful and friendly and had the house spotless for our arrival. And Snowy, the gardener, clipped off a few extra streamers at our request to improve on the view. The gardens were well kept, and the owners invited us to enjoy some of the lettuce and herbs that they had growing.

We really enjoyed our time at Sweet Mango and would highly recommend it for people who want nice views, access to good swimming, a quiet location and a place where they can just hang-out and enjoy Bequia

“Hidden gem and easy walk to beaches”

My husband and I have stayed at Sweet Mango every winter for 3 weeks ever since the house was first built. We keep returning because the apartment is large, open to the veranda from every room, and has an incredible view. From the veranda the views include a vista of Lower Bay, the distant keyes off the end of Bequia and the lush tropical gardens that surround the property. The apartment is in a great location and in a quiet area. What makes it extra special is the care the owner's take in keeping the structure and gardens in immaculate condition. The kitchen has everything we have needed to prepare meals for ourselves and guests. Kathy, the housekeeper, is very particular and helpful...we wish we could beam her to our house once a week! Great place and good people to rent from.
