Stroll out of the back garden gate of Mangoes and across the road to the beautiful Platinum Coast sands and the Caribbean Sea. Grab a towel and take the tiny "swimming key" and off you go!

Our property could not be better placed; we have the sea and beaches less than two minutes walk and a variety of shops, restaurants, bars, banks and a well stocked modern supermarket on the doorstep! Furthermore, the Beach Club and swimming pool, belonging to local residents and their guests, is also just across the road, with excellent facilities and sun decks and a restaurant at the water's edge!

Mangoes is a large, detached, single storey house - (Built size = 2,000 sq Feet / Plot = 10,000 sq Feet). I have an ambition to put a sun deck on the roof where my husband and I (and our guests, of course) can relax whilst...

We stayed here for 16 nights over Christmas and new year and had a wonderful holiday. Mangoes was absolutely perfect for us being in a great location and having all the facilities we could need. Lucille was lovely and looked after us really well. We didn't eat in much but when we did we made good use of the lovely...

Management response:

I couldn’t ask for a better review, thanks very much indeed! Yes, Sunset Crest is a safe area; hubby Ian and I are only 5'2" each and we walk out at night without any problem. In part, the wrought iron gates are provided, in addition to wooden doors, to allow breeze to flow through, even whilst guests are out and...

About the neighbourhood
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 w...
