We first stayed in Dec/Jan 2013/14 and enjoyed it so much we came back for 2 weeks straight after Christmas this year. Please see our review from last year. It is a completely hassle free holiday. The location of the villa is perfect - quiet yet just across the road from the beach and a few mins walk from the supermarket. The information you get from Cath and Ian before the trip is excellent and you know that you will find a clean and well maintained villa on your arrival. The maid service is lovely to have and it really makes it a very relaxing stay. We did lots of day trips - there is tonnes to see and do in Barbados and by being in St James parish you are right in the middle of the island so all attractions are close by. Would love to come again!

Hi there,
How are things? Good I hope.

Thanks for another wonderful review, very useful and reassuring to guests to know that we are here for them every step of the way. Glad to know our guidance/advice was helpful to you. It's something we feel very strongly is particularly important when travellers are new to a country/area. Everybody would love to see the whole world but it can be scary too!
That's also why we added the wrought iron gates to Mangoes ensuring absolute safety for those who might feel strange or nervous abroad whilst ensuring that cool breezes can still flow throughout.

You have been lovely guests, two years running, I hope you'll be able to come back some day too .... sooner the better.

Thanks again, cheerio for now, Cath

A great villa with 3 air conditioned bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms, capable of handling up to 7 people of family or friends. It’s location of directly across from the Sunset Crest beachfront members only pool (Mangoes is a member) makes pool or beach swimming easy. Many great stores and restaurants are within short walking distance.

Adding to the enjoyment of staying here is the fact that the villa is extremely well maintained and very clean with housekeeping service twice a week.

Highly recommend it to everyone looking for villa accommodation in the area.

Hi there,
Thanks for this super review, with 5 star ratings for each sub-category and the huge complement; your words - "Thank you for offering such first class accommodation and facilities".
Thanks too for the overall rating of 4 stars. There's always room for some improvement isn't there?
We're off to Mangoes ourselves very soon to continue our programme of refurbishment and hopefully to catch a bit of holiday too - either way I just love being there.

Please come back to us whenever you feel you'd like to re-visit, you'd be more than welcome.
Cheerio, Cath.

Hi,
So sorry for this late response to your review - I thought I had responded, maybe I clicked something wrong and lost it.
It's a really good review and I'm very grateful. It is difficult keeping up with the number of reviews required when guests are so long stay as your good selves.
It's helpful for future guests to know that Mangoes is so well situated for all amenities as well as the beach and pool and probably your best compliment to us is the fact that you return year on year for so long. It becomes more enjoyable for us too and it has been rewarding building up an email relationship with you during Jan, Feb and March of 2013 and 2014, even though we have never met!
It's good to know we are getting things right for our guests - that's the whole aim after all!
Looking forward to resuming our email relationship next time you're in residence!
Cheerio, Cath.

The 5 of us stayed over New Year (3 boys, 8, 6, 5) and had a wonderful holiday. The villa is very comfortable, extremely clean and perfectly located. The beach is less than a minute's walk away and you have the choice of turning right to walk along the main, busier, Holetown beach, or left to two more secluded bays. The supermarket is 3 minutes walk the other way and there are restaurants right on your doorstep. We did not hire a car and found it a very hassle free and relaxing holiday. Cath and Ian gave us lots of good advice before we came out and there is even more info in the house so it really feels like you are being looked after. Lucille, the housekeeper, is a star and comes in twice a week to thoroughly clean and change sheets. She has an amazing ability to rid a house of sand! There is also a laundry room so you can wash your own clothes as well which was really useful.

Hi P,
Many thanks. I'm so glad you enjoyed Mangoes and our lovely area. Sounds as if you found my favourite beach too - which is one of those you mention turning left (South).
Lucille is a joy - we are lucky to have her - I'll pass on your comments to her, she'll be pleased as punch.
If you ever want to re-visit, please get in touch, you'd be welcome to come back and stay again!
For now, all best wishes for 2014!
Cheerio, Cath.

Thanks for this very complimentary review and factual snippets - always useful for future guests.

I'm glad you had a great time; just reading what you've written makes me realise how much I wish I could be going for a Mangoes-break myself right now.

Don't forget to contact us in the future if you'd like another visit, you'll be very welcome indeed.

Simply lively private villa, all the comforts of home. AC in each bedroom so us northerner's can sleep. Lucille comes every few days to clean up. Close to shops, groceries, restaurants. Private club is a nice touch if you want to lay out without the sun. Will definitely stay here again when in Barbados.

Hello there,
If you don't mind, I'd like to add to this by pasting on the unexpected and unsolicited comments you wrote to me privately .....

"Hello,
Just wanted to send a quick note. My family & I stayed at your place with *** ******** last week.
It was just lovely. All the comforts of home, close to everything. And being across the street from the beach and the club's pool made it perfect.
Thank you so much, we would recommend the place without reservation."

I was particularly delighted to receive this AND the review from you - all the more because we'd had no previous communication as my work was all through your lead party *** as above.

A response like yours really gives my husband an I a boost and makes us feel that all our efforts to keep up the standards at Mangoes are worth while.

Thanks so much - we'd love to welcome you back in the future.
Cheerio, Cath.
