About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, Sleeps 6 adults, 2-3 children; No AC

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.

Villa is not air conditioned as 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.

The fourth bedroom, situated in the service area, with twin beds and bathroom can accommodate two more.

The large kitchen is Mexican tiled and is well-equipped with a microwave, two fridges, one freezer, a toaster, blender, barbecue grill, and an adjacent laundry room with a washing machine.

Our dedicated staff really adds to the pleasure of staying at Mango Point. Pamela our housekeeper is an excellent cook and will surprise you, she knows too how to mix drinks. Felicia, the housemaid keeps the house orderly, prepares breakfast and light lunch and does the house laundry. Both are warm and reliable persons and will do their best to make your stay a memorable one.

Much care has gone into quality, comfort, art, and details which add to the charm and pleasure of your stay at Mango Point and makes it so special to our returning guests.

A VCR, stereo, books, tapes, and CDs are available during your stay.

Included in the rates are the daily services of an excellent cook, a maid and a gardener. Food and beverages are not included in the price. Staff is mandatory.

Baby sitter and massage services are available upon request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Francine was terrific and responded to all of our questions right away and explained everything to us to make the trip as wonderful as possible. We went to St. Lucia to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary and our baby boys first birthday. And WOW!! What a gorgeous and magnificent villa Mango Point is! Jones our wonderful driver picked us up from the airport and from the minute we walked in we were blown away! It's been a few days since we've been back home and we are still sad over having to leave what we considered a little paradise. We will definitely be returning to St. Lucia and cannot imagine staying anywhere else but at Mango Point. The way the villa was built couldn't have been better. Everything is open and airy. The garden we walked by every time to our room was so beautiful to look at. The tropical plants surrounding the villa were gorgeous and the attention to detail in the villa was magnificent! Francine did an amazing job with it!! So we read some complaints about the bugs and whatnot. Yes, there are a lot of bugs and there are mosquitoes, there are birds flying in and out of the home, and there are geckos crawling around on the walls and we ABSOLUTELY loved that about the home!! I think that's part of what made staying there so wonderful for us. It was an incredible experience and it felt like we were out in nature. We are big nature lovers so it didn't bother us one bit. Our 1 year old enjoyed seeing all the birds flying around and loved chasing the little ants around. He was full of curiosity there which was great to see! The pictures make it pretty clear that it's an open villa and you are on an island, so if you don't understand what comes with an open villa it's better that you go to an enclosed resort somewhere, although you'd be missing out! Of all the places we went to visit on the island we loved staying in the most and enjoying the villa, its breathtaking views from every corner and the absolutely amazing staff that we fell in love with, which we miss dearly and actually consider them like family now. Francine is very blessed to have such amazing and good people take care of the villa! We felt pampered the entire time we were there. Felicia was super sweet and made us the most amazing breakfast every morning and would put fresh flowers on the table for us every morning and on our beds as well which made us feel extra special..........(See complete review on Mango Point website: www.mangopointvilla.com)

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Honeymoon Destination

  • 5 of 5

Mango Point Villa is amazing! I took a risk and surprised my bride by booking it for our honeymoon in June 2017. The property and grounds were well kept, and the staff were fantastic. They were not intrusive and definitely contributed to a memorable experience.

I strongly recommend enjoying many of your meals in, both Pamela and Felicia took very good care of us. Pamela prepared dinner for us the day we arrived, and the look on my bride's face was priceless! Mahi mahi, steamed veggies, and cheese souffle with crepes for dessert. Many thanks!

Mango Point has the best view of the island. You can enjoy the Pitons from most of the house, nowhere else we visited during our stay could compare. The grounds are lovely, and the gardener brought in fresh flowers for the bedroom each day. The house is open air, but no A/C was not a problem, anytime we got a little warm we jumped into the pool. Pool is saltwater, so no chlorine to burn the eyes. Beds all have mosquito nets.

Also, we used Jones as our driver during our stay. He was great, very reliable and flexible to our plans and interests.

The only reason not to go, is so that there is vacancy for us to visit again!

Spectacular View! Awesome Service!

  • 5 of 5

Had to be the best view ever. The service provided by the staff of 4 was amazing: Great cook, housekeeper, gardener and driver... and all part of the rental. We just bought the food (or actually the cook bought the food and we reimbursed her) based on menus that we coordinated. The villa is very nice and ultra clean. It's an older style, classic villa. Very open, thick walls, great air circulation.

The road to the place is rough but there's a big pay off. Definitely recommend taking advantage of the driver, especially for airport pickup.

Cant find better views! Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Place was great! Staff was very helpful. I would recommend you set up your food before your arrival. Markets aren't the easiest in town. You dont really need a reason to leave. Place is gorgeous.

Fantastic view & lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We came to St. Lucia to go scuba diving and Mango Point is only about a mile away from Scuba St. Lucia at the Anse Castanet resort. It has the best views of the Pitons, as you can see by the pictures. We appreciated the flexibility of working with the house staff's schedules so we could have some alone time when we wanted it (mornings and a day to ourselves at the house). Pamela's cooking was fantastic and I recommend her key lime pie - best I've had! You do hear noise/music come up from the houses down the hill, but it's unrealistic to think it'll be quiet 100% of the time. At night it was okay, but I suggest bringing ear plugs because you'll want the windows open all the time (no A/C).

Owner's Response: Thank you Skaï to have taken the time to appreciate your stay at the villa, and we are so pleased when our guests had a relaxing holiday. Our dedicated staff enjoyed having you too. We will notice our neighbors, to recommend to their guests not to play loud music at night. All the best, Francine B.
