Interaction with guests
Guests are unlikely to meet me as I'm stuck in the frozen climes of Northern England (sob!)
However, you will be welcomed by my lovely staff, shown around the house, how to use the equipment etc.
I'm still only an email away (or available via various methods of instant messaging) and, taking into account the time zone difference, I'm still here to help or answer questions to the best of my ability.

We spent a wonderful week at Mangoes and it was even better than described!! The layout of the home was perfect. We were a bit concerned about having A/C only in the bedrooms, but that was not a problem at all. There is such a lovely breeze all the time, and with the open-air concept it was absolutely wonderful. A/C...

I recently stayed at Mangoes with my partner and 8 year old daughter. We had a fabulous time; the villa was immaculate and spacious, to include a very well equipped kitchen. A lovely veranda and a stunning garden. You don't need a car as everything is on your doorstep, sea, pool and restaurants. However, we did hire a car for...

About the neighborhood
Sunset Crest, where Mangoes is situated is a lovely residential area right on the 'Platinum Coast' of Barbados . Most of the houses are quite large, detached properties (owned by respectable working people) with beautiful tropical gardens which all adds to the pleasant atmosphere of the area.
The Caribbean sea and our pool are situated just across the West Coast road, a mere 2 minutes walk away. The pool is privately owned by Sunset Crest property owners. It is maintained by the Beach House which provides restaurant, bar and facilities. Entry to the pool is free for local residents and renters and, as many locals are working people with busy lives to attend to and not much time to go swimming, this leaves it fairly under-used.
Sunset Crest, is very close to historic Holetown whe...
Getting around
An excellent bus service runs up and down the coast road regularly.
We always hire a car because, as owners, we need to reach furniture stores etc. Holiday makers don't need a car except for sight seeing purposes and some of my more adventurous guests tell me that they have traveled far and wide using only public buses!
There are no trains on the island of course, so all transport is by car, bus or taxi...... and boats of course .... always for fun though, there are no boats for transport (as far as I know!)
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Grantley Adams International, Barbados: 15.5 mi
Ferry: Barbados: 12.4 mi
The easiest way to find Mangoes is to drive up the west coast road to Sunset Crest/Holetown area.
Turn right by Sandy Crest Medical Centre (also where the fruit sellers have their stalls on the left) and take the first road on the left, just after the fruit sellers and one house. This is Hibiscus Avenue.
Mangoes is the third house on the left hand side. We have double wrought iron gates and the right hand pillar bears a ceramic name plaque quoting Mangoes 94.
