About Lisa Carroll

We live in London, but come over to Barbados and Mango house for a couple of months each year.

Lisa Carroll purchased this villa in 2010

Why Lisa Carroll chose Holetown

We always loved the look and location of this house on many of our previous trips. Then on one trip it was for sale and it was the right time for us to be able to buy it. We love Mango house it's our home away from home

What makes this villa unique

There is a huge mango tree in the garden with delicious mangoes when in season. the monkeys visit for breakfast and feast ont he mangoes. It is close to the beach and facilities of holetown, but still has that residential feel about it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got home from two weeks at Mango House, and wish we were still there! The house was very clean and tidy, very well equipped, and the photos shown on the ad are exactly what is there. Georgiana (the housekeeper) was very friendly. Our favorite part was sitting in the outdoor seating area; we sat out there reading for the majority of our time there, which was exactly what we needed to relax. We enjoyed seeing the monkeys (although not so much the mess they made throwing mangoes into the yard - ha, ha!) and the flowers in the yard were beautiful. It was close enough to walk to the grocery store and the little chattel shops and restaurants, and the beach is just across the street. We were glad of the laundry facilities, as we tend to pack light. We would definitely recommend Mango House, and I'm sure we'll back back there again.

mango house

  • 5 of 5

our stay at mango house was relaxing and the house was fully equipped for a self catering holiday and was very clean and kept clean by the wonderful housekeeper who was really friendly.

Thank you Georgie. We had visits from monkeys mongoose and various birds all very entertaining. Did a bit of sunbathing on the sun loungers in the garden then cooled off in the outside shower. The garden was lovely and private. Harry collected us from the airport was also very friendly and punctual both picking us up at the airport and taking us back for our return flight .

hopefully one day we will be back again

Fantastic home in the best location.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from an amazing stay at this beautiful house and could not have been happier.

The location (a 2 minute walk to the beach, 5 minutes to supermarket and within spitting distance of countless bars, restaurants and (most importantly) Rum Shacks!!) is perfect. Just on the northern side of the Holetown shopping district it's got everything nearby but is "local" enough to feel like you're seeing a bit of the real Barbados as opposed to the experience the sanitised/soulless resorts offer.

The house itself is perfect for a family. I stayed with my wife, daughter and mother-in-law (thus my familiarity with the local Rum Shacks) and it suited us to a tee. Small but serviceable kitchen with a full sized oven, fridge etc, beautiful outdoor dining area and resident monkey in the Mango tree to entertain my little 2 year old. The appearance of the occasional Mongoose added the perfect amount of rodent without having to put up with rats, which was nice;-)

My only complaint with the wildlife was a hummingbird crapped on my floral shirt after mistaking it for a Hibiscus bush. Still it was a Hummingbird so not a large pile by any means.

With plenty of room in the backyard for BBQs (and a BBQ onsite) we really felt like we had a home which you just can't get staying in a resort. I'd have no worries recommending Mango House to anyone looking for a great base to explore the island or just a relaxing place to put your feet up and sip rum for a week or two. Or both.....

A beautiful home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay and everything was perfect. Lisa makes the booking process very easy and pain free. Information before and during our stay was excellent and accurate both about the property itself and also the surrounding area and facilities. The house was very spacious with a lovely outdoor covered area and garden. Facilities were excellent at the property and made self catering very easy. The housekeeper kept the property spotless and was very helpful with local information. The surrounding area included a well stocked supermarket, designer outlet, numerous restaurantes ranging from beach shack to fine dining. I struggle to think of anything that could be improved. Look forward to returning soon.

A Great Holiday Base - conveniently situated

  • 5 of 5

Mango House is a lovely property, well cared for and cleaned by Georgie and Harry and very conveniently situated near to the beach and the shops. The house is quite roomy and benefits from a well appointed kitchen and two bathrooms with two great showers!! It is like a home from home. Lots of books to borrow and videos to watch including those suitable for young children. The garden is a bonus. From the veranda you can sit and watch visiting wildlife - we saw humming birds, mongoose and monkeys appear at different times. Holetown itself is a great base for a holiday. There is a good mixture of designer shops (Lime Grove) and more reasonably priced gift shops and a supermarket that stocks some Waitrose lines. There is wide variety of restaurants and bars to choose from too - all within easy walking distance of the house. We loved Surfside on a Sunday night as they have a steel band playing and Just Grillin' was another favourite with their down to earth prices. We even tried street food at lunch time - vendors appear at midday round the corner from Mango House and the food they sell is extremely good value and tasty. Bus stops are just round the corner so getting to Bridgetown is just a matter of a 5 minute wait and 2 Barbados dollars. The reefs just off the west coast are within easy reach. Some are just a few yards from the beach and if you fancy snorkelling you will see some fabulous fish and a turtle or two!

Lisa Carroll is easy to deal with and booking was not a problem. She arranged for Harry to pick us up from the airport too. She leaves a very informative file in the house which explains everything you need to know to make the most of your time there. I would recommend this property to anyone and next time I want a holiday in Barbados, I'll be going back to Mango House.

MANGO HOUSE IS JUST AS DESCRIBED IN THE BROUCHER. LOVELY & HOMELEY , WITH PLENTY OF THINGS TO DO IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN FOR THE EVENING GAMES ,DVD'S & BOOKS.

THE KITCHEN HAS ALL THE EQUIPTMENT THAT YOU COULD NEED FOR MAKING MEALS.

THE GARDENS ARE LOVELY & NICE TO SIT AND RELAX IN THE SUNSHINE.

IT IS A SHORT WALK TO THE SHOPS IN HOLETOWN WITH BAR'S & RESTURANTS TO EVERY POCKET. LIMEGROVE SHOPPING MALL IS WORTH A VISIT & THE BAR IS PLEASANT TO HAVE A GLASS OF WINE OR CUP OF COFFEE.

THANK-YOU LISA FOR ALLOWING US TO STAY IN YOUR HOME. HERE'S TO THE NEXT TIME.

The villa is a 5 minute walk North of Holetown, which has a shopping centre with supermarket and duty free shopping. The Limegrove shopping complex is literally around the corner. Limegrove houses many designer shops, restaurants and the cinema.There are many local restaurants and bars within walking distance. Most of the restaurants and bars are situated on 1st and 2nd Street which is only a five minute walk from the house.

It is not necessary to have a car. There is an excellent bus service that runs along the main road and a bus stop just around the corner. The West Coast beaches, which are only a short walk from the villa are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing.
