We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mangoes. A beautifully appointed property managed with care by responsible owners.

Hi Michael,
Thanks for a very good and very constructive review - Ian and I do put a lot into Mangoes. Every time we go we make some sort of improvement; I'm so glad you appreciated what we do, it makes it all worth while.
Thanks for the comment about accuracy of our description. I try very hard to keep our information up to date and correct.
I enjoyed our communication and would be absolutely delighted to welcome you back if you'd like to stay again. Please get in touch any time you feel the need for a Barbados refresher - or should I say relaxer?
Take care ....
Cheerio, Cath.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Great location, just a cross road from the beach and the swimming pool. There are restaurants and shops, even a supermarket within walking distance. The villa has everything you need. It is maintained to a very high standard. The housekeeper is very welcoming, friendly and will help you if you have questions. She comes in twice a week. The garden is large enough for children to play in. This is a great villa to stay in. Easy to book and very friendly owners.p

Hello again,
I'm a little mixed up - was this your 3rd stay at Mangoes or your 4th? We go back years together don't we?
Thanks for taking the time to send the review and the many useful details you have factored into it ..... one of the best recommendations from repeat visitors is simply the fact that you DO come back again and again.
Well, please let me say that a lovely family like yours is WELCOME back again and again. I look forward to the next time!
Cheerio, Cath.

“Very satisfied, can’t wait to go back”
We stayed at Mangoes with our children and two grandchildren aged 6 and 3, in April 2015.
The main reason for selecting Mangoes was the location which we knew from a number of previous visits to Holetown. We had tried to book previously without success due to repeat bookings from returning visitors.
The location is convenient to all the shops and restaurants of Holetown, with an excellent bus service for exploring further afield on the island, so car rental is not essential. The private pool complex is a couple of minutes’ walk across the road and next to a sandy beach, and also the Beach House for food and drinks is an excellent additional facility. There is a large supermarket and a 24/7 mini supermarket which opens 365 days a year, just 8 minutes’ walk away.
We were made most welcome by the lovely Lucille, the housekeeper, who efficiently looked after us on her twice weekly visits when bedding and towels were changed and the property was maintained in first class condition. She never complained no matter how many children’s toys, games etc were left around.
We found Mangoes to be everything we expected it to be and more, very well equipped, very comfortable, super facilities both inside and outside. The location was fantastic particularly when you have quite young children whose entire holiday consists of going to the pool and beach.
We would definitely recommend Mangoes and will hopefully return one day.

Hello there!
Thanks so much, this is a lovely review and so helpful to other travelers to hear about the location and nearby facilities.
I'm glad to hear you all had such a great time!
A lot has happened since you were there .... we went down and made a few changes! We now have a new light at the back garden gate and we have completely re-furnished the veranda. The old cane suite had served us well and was still comfortable but a little too tired so, sadly, it was time to go. We now have a range of new pieces all in modern raffia; cushions in browns, beige and caramel. There are a lot more places to sit; sofa, two easy chairs and six very comfortable dining chairs, versatile enough to be used as relax-chairs when needed. In addition we have a generous dining table and new coffee table, all part of the set! This is just to prepare you for your next trip - of course there are photos on TripAdvisor too!
You're a very nice family and I certainly look forward to hearing from you in the near future, when you're ready to put your plans for a return visit into reality. Don't leave it too long!
Cheerio, Cath (and hubby, Ian)

“Second time back and just as enjoyable”

person found this review helpful

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.
