Awesome place in Deshaies, Guadeloupe, facing Grande-Anse beach you can easily walk to. Accommodate 2-3 people (gite), or 2 guests (studio). AC/Wifi/free parking/big pool and tropical garden. Very quiet and comfortable! You won't get tired of the stunning view and the great sunsets on the Caribbean Sea! 40 km (25 miles) from Pointe à Pitre airport, 0,3 km from the sea, shops and nice restaurants. Deshaies is a small village, easy-going, and very popular among travelers from all over the world. You'll love it! Grande Anse in Deshaies, is maybe one of the best places to visit in Guadeloupe, and certainly one of the nicest beaches in the Caribbean. Tennis, rafting, fishing, horse-riding, swimming, water sports, diving, snorkeling, whale-watching, sailing, hiking. The botanical garden is a pure gem, and if you're a fan of the BBC series "Death in Paradise", Deshaies is the right spot for you ! We'll be delighted to welcome you in our little paradise... Bienvenue sur notre île papillon, au coeur des petites Antilles et de la Caraïbe. Nous vous proposons un superbe gîte, face à la mer, dans un environnement idyllique de collines et de forêt tropicale. A deux pas (300m) de la célèbre baie de Grande Anse à Deshaies, ce gîte confortable de 45 m² aux couleurs typiques, conviendra parfaitement à une famille de 3 personnes (enfants de plus de 12 ans seulement), mais aussi à un couple en quête de tranquillité... Nous disposons également d'un studio pouvant accueillir deux personnes, toujours avec vue mer et tout le confort nécessaire. A certaines dates, la villa est également disponible. Vous pourrez rejoindre à pied la plage bordée de cocotiers, et admirer cette longue étendue de sable dorée que d'aucuns considèrent comme la plus belle de Guadeloupe... Profitez du jardin et de la piscine, du soleil couchant de votre terrasse, tout en dégustant une mangue ou une goyave gorgée de sucre et de soleil. Le calme absolu et la tranquillité seront évidemment au rendez-vous de votre séjour que l'on vous souhaite radieux au Mangoplaya... Nous vous invitons à découvrir en photos, et en vidéo, le gîte, le studio et le jardin, ainsi que la villa Mangoplaya et les environs. A très bientôt sous le soleil des Tropiques !

Mangoplaya is great for several reasons: - Extremely nice and helpful landlords Raymond and Corinne - Great location 4 minutes from Grand Anse, Guadeloupe's nicest beach, offering chilly beach life but also beach party at Karacoli - In the middle of abundant nature - Great pool bordering a tropical forest. If you find Mangoplaya nice (and you will), don't make my mistake and move on (to Dominica and Antigua), just stay! It is nicest there!

The setting of Mangoplaya is just superb for a relaxing low key holiday. We were staying in the studio which was well equipped with beer and milk in the fridge and wine on the table, a lovely welcome. Raymond and Corinne are superb hosts helpful and friendly, they know so much about the island and can advise on everything from restaurants to beaches and hiking trails. We will certainly return but would book the bigger accommodation next time so that there is more outside covered space in case of rain. The sunsets from the property were just amazing and the peace and tranquillity second to none. We slept amazingly well , the air conditioning quiet and efficient. The garden and pool area is just beautiful and it is so lovely to be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the jungle. It is a huge advantage being able to park the car right next to the property as it is up a very steep hill but it certainly helps the fitness level walking to and from the fantastic Grand Anse beach just under 10 minutes away. There are also superb restaurants within this walk less to Le Papillon which has a new chef this year and was excellent. We had a really wonderful holiday and would heartily recommend Mangoplaya if you enjoy a quiet low key way of life.

Ray & Co were excellent hosts and helped with lots of information and tips. The apartment is ideal, very stylish in color, functional with a great terrace and a fantastic sea view. There were even many little surprises in the fridge for a very good start to our stay. We only can highly recommend that place. Both speak excellent English otherwise we would have been lost without French knowledge. A big thank you to them and we probably will come back!

We stayed for 4 nights in the middle of November. The guesthouse is located on a hill with a jungle around you which makes it perfect to sit on the terrace, listen to birds singing or sunbathe by the almost private pool (only shared with one other apartment and the hosts). The host Ray is super welcoming, he will help you with everything from finding ATM-s to finding a place to get your flat tire fixed. By the way he speaks perfect english! We had a nice apartment with 2 bedrooms, quiet AC-s, very good Wifi and all the amenities you need (from shampoo in the bathroom to salt and pepper in the kitchen). We had 2 terraces overlooking the sunset by the mountains and the sea. We really loved the stay and have recommended it to everyone! Greetings from Estonia!

We stayed here for 5 days and wished we never had to leave. We stayed in the apartment which has a wonderfully secluded veranda area. The apartment itself was beautiful and cosy with all the amenities you would want. There even was a cat (very sweet and polite) to keep you company on the veranda. The swimming pool was amazing and also has a terrace with a beautiful view of the tropical forest. Be prepared for a very steep climb before you reach the apartment. But after the first time you know the set up and how to park and it is no problem. If you can rent an automatic car, I would advise you to do that :-)
