“Our Caribbean dream”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

In early 2012 our family spent nine nights at Gite Mangoplaya, Deshaies. Our vacation was a dreamlike one near this charming village and 500 meters from the best beach in our lives.
The gite
The apartment is around 48 m2 with one twin room for my children and a double room to us with my wife. The bathroom was around 10m2, the only negative point that the WC is not separate. The refrigirator is big, the living room with the kitchen is nothing special. We slept 9-10 hours well every night there. Apart from the sleep we did not spent much time in the apartment. We had a 20-25 m2 terrace with a nice view to the Caribbean, where we could have yoga in the morning every day. There was a sheltered dining place on one side of the apartment, where we spent most of our time at the Gite.
Grande Anse beach
The dream beach for me with two young teenagers. 1200-1300 meters wide gold sand beach with nice palms and 400-500 meter high mountains in the background. During our stay waves were constantly around 1,5-2 meters high, my children spent in the sea 4-5 hours on an average day. For this reason we did not use the nice pool of the house.
Guadeloupe
Wonderful Caribbean-French "melange". Nice opportunities for sunbathers, hikers etc.

We have stayed here for 1 week. Basically one of the best places in Guadeloupe, so close to the grande anse beach (500m). Gasstation at the roundabout (300m.) is also a supermarket and has a good boulangerie departement. Green cafe at Grande anse beach is worth a visit. Really what else could one need.

The appartement is basically the whole ground level floor of a 2 story house. There are 2 terraces. 1 with a roof and nice view (shelter against tropical showers) and a broad large terrace with a even better view over the (same) bay area.
On the appartement we can say that it is comfortable, nicely located and with enough privacy. Master bedroom is airconditioned. Kitchen is combined with livingroom and is well equipped. Bathroom is fine, with a good shower.

Service is very good ready to help you with good daytrips or a little bit of sugar ;-). The family that holds the appartement is very helpfull if you need anything. And really know to respect your privacy. You share the pool with them as well as the pool is in their wonderfull garden. It's possible for 5 persons to stay in the house. I think with 4-3-2-1 persons its at it's best.
