Mango Point is nestled on a lush tropical hillside facing the Caribbean Sea and the famous Pitons: twin titanic peaks, soaring to a height of 2900 feet above the cobalt sea. Lovely beach is 15-minute walk downhill.
Red roofs, thick stone island walls and graceful archways set the tone for a colonial house.
At 300 feet above sea level, constant breezes cool the house. It has 4500 square feet under cathedral ceilings graced by hand carved beams and ceiling fans.
Separate wings for sleeping, dining, cooking and leisure are wrapped around a courtyard shaded by fragrant jasmine vines.
Entering the house into the living room you are irresistibly attracted by the large arched doors framed by bougainvilleas, few steps down,the swimming pool follows the line of the cliff, the view is breathtakingly magnificent as it sweeps across the Soufriere Bay, sea, and mountains.
Rental fee includes an excellent chef and an housekeeper daily services.The staff will shop for the guests provided the cost is given by the guests for each shopping trip.
Just off the living area, five steps down suspended at the edge of the hillside, a large infinity swimming pool faces the majestic Pitons. Large decks with sun chairs are sheltered by a cabana.
The dining room and living room are really comfortable and elegant. Imported Ralph Lauren furniture includes sofas, large rugs, toile curtains, art, and a hammock. Candlelight or al fresco dining can be arranged.
The sleeping area has more a West Indian flair with four poster beds and gauze netting, contributing to a romantic feeling.
Two of the master bedrooms have colonial king size mahogany beds. A few steps down in the garden is the third master suite, Creole-style, with a queen size, ironwork four poster bed. This room enjoys magnificent views from its deck. All oversized, these bedrooms have large closets, a safety box, ceiling fans, and quality linen. A cot bed is also available in one of the master bedrooms. Spacious bathrooms en suite have three walls, with showers and separate toilets.

St. Lucia is a beautiful island. Mango Point if a wonderful place to stay to enjoy this island. The staff is friendly and pampered us during our stay. The house itself is charming and very well situated, overlooking the Pitons, the bay and the town of Soufriere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in February, 2007 and are going back in '08.
This was my first trip to St. Lucia. I didn't know exactly what to expect. I did a lot of research and planning before via Trip Advisor. I'm so glad I did my research and ended up in Mango Point instead of Rodney Bay. This was an amazing trip. Mango Point was everything we had hoped and more. I brought a group of girlfriends with me to celebrate my 50th birthday. I've rented homes all over the world, Bora Bora, Moorea, Eleuthera, Hawaii, Italy, Costa Rica, Tulum.... This experience exceeded them all. I've never had a house rental that came with staff who took care of your every need. Pamela, Felicia and Emanuel were exceptional. Pamela speaks perfect English and she took us around shopping and found items we were looking for. She's a great chef and we enjoyed every meal she cooked for us. My favorites are her quiche, Potatoes Au Gratin and pumpkin soup. I'm still trying to duplicate that soup at home after she gave me the recipe. We also enjoyed her sunset rum cocktails. Felicia made delicious breakfasts for us. We asked for the traditional hot chocolate which she also made for us. It's really nice having the house cleaned for you every day! The house is amazing. The view exceeds all. I stayed in the Mango Tree Room and it was so cool. I loved it! It was like sleeping in a forest over looking a spectacular view. We went snorkeling a lot at Anse Chasenet. It was the best snorkling I've ever experienced. Amazing. Only problem when we were there were jelly fish. :( I'd bring some petroleum jelly next time. We went to the volcano, Sugar Beach, shopping in Castries, we had a dinner at Dasheene and lunch at Jardin Cacao both were good and fun. We drove ourselves and it was never a problem. I love St. Lucia and the people make it so special . If you're lucky enough to stay at Mango Point you'll be very happy. It was a trip of a lifetime. I'm hoping to get back there next year with family.
This is the best week in many years,
Wonderful weather, comfortable beds, very clean, great cook,
Lovely service, beautiful pool, spectacular views, quiet and elegant
THis Villa had a killer view of the Pitons. The staff were outstanding, they grocery shopped for us, cooked very good meals. Definitely recommend using their taxi driver for transportation. Only downside to this property was no air conditioning at all. Mattress was very firm.
Mosquito netting worked well, grounds were well maintained as was the pool. Staff made great Pina Coladas. We did eat out one night at Ladera which was good. Ate out one other night down the hill at Anse Castanet and our Pamela cooked more delicious meals than this resturant.
This property is amazing to say the least! My husband and I came here with 3 other couples for 7 days. The other reviews on here are spot on.
The town of Soufriere was friendly and accommodating, we walked to the market on several occasions and called Jones (the driver) for a ride back to the house. Pamela's cooking is to die for; there were never any leftovers. We only ate out Sunday night because the staff is off duty; we made sure to be home for Pamela's dinners every other night of the trip. The beach at Anse Chastanet is one of the best on the island, has great snorkeling/scuba diving, and is walking distance.
Most of the group did a day trip to Castries by water taxi with a stop at the rum distillery and snorkeling on the way back. This was preferred since the boat ride is much shorter than driving. Four of the more adventurous members hiked Petit Piton and Jones did a nice job of arranging their hiking guide and transportation.
My husband has traveled the world and noted that the location, house, and staff made this an unforgettable vacation. We will definitely be back in the future!
Our group had the very good fortune of staying at Mango Point for a week and it was everyone's first time in St. Lucia. It probably will not be the last.
Francine was available via email for countless questions before and after booking, and we spoke on the phone a few times. She was very easy to work with.
When I think of the best attributes of the house, it's a tie - the views and the staff. The views are simply amazing. Even 7 days later they still blew us all away. The same can be said for the staff; these wonderful people go above and beyond. In the morning, Felicia and an extra helper would come in the morning and make breakfast. Our group particularly liked her banana pancakes, the bacon (I'm going through withdrawals), and FRENCH TOAST. Also the fresh fruit there was amazing.
Emanuel (sp?) did a great job of taking care of the grounds and the pool and even brought us some fruits from his garden. I've stayed in villas in St. John several times, and the pool has never been even remotely as clean as the wonderful job he did.
Finally, Pamela would come in the early afternoon and make our dinners. She also shopped for us, for a very small fee. Her food was amazing - we only ate out one time the whole week- and her desserts kept getting better and better as the week went on (and they started out great, so that's really saying something). I chatted with her several times and always found her extremely friendly. I may or may not have tried to get her to come back home with us. I'll never tell.
The house can set up a driver for you so you don't have to rent a car. I highly suggest this as the roads are pretty narrow and can be scary at times. The driver, Jones, is wonderful. His van can fit 8 or 9, and at the end of the week it ended up being less expensive than if we would have rented a car. Jones was extremely friendly and always available for us. We always felt safe with him.
Now on to the house itself. The pool, as stated earlier, is wonderful. There is a lot of outside seating. The living room is large and airy with ample seating. There are 3 nice sized rooms (one being in a cottage) and 1 small bedroom.
If I were going to suggest any improvements, I think they would be to update the mosquito netting in the cottage as friends said it did not fit the bed correctly and they ended up getting quite bit since neither cottage or home have screens. Also, maybe add standing fans to each room, not just the master.
