About Joan Smith

My name is Joan and we purchased this property in St Lucia because we simply fell in love with it.

The views are magnificent and everyone who has stayed there

want to come back.

I grew up in the UK and went to the local schools. I left at the age of 15 and went to work in London.

I met my husband Alan when I was 21 and we were married within 18 months and had our first son Ian with Paul, Alan and Graham to follow.

They are now all men and visited St Lucia with us many times and go on holiday as much as time will allow as they work hard running their own Company.

We all try to get together at Christmas in St Lucia and always enjoy being with them and the Grandhcildren. We live both in the UK and St Lucia .

Joan Smith purchased this villa in 2006

Why Joan Smith chose St. Lucia

We had been coming to St Lucia for 40 years on holidays and when this property was available to purchase through a friend of ours we jumped at it knowing the views and full potential of the property. We have completely in the last 2 years revamped and refurbished the property to a high standard which is what we wanted to achieve and it took us a long time to decide to do holiday rentals which I must admit we have met some lovely

families who all talk about coming back to Mango Tree Villa.

What makes this villa unique

The views are absolutely breath-taking where you can sit with a glass of wine on the balcony by the pool or on the higher terrace and watch the sunset and cruise ships leaving Castries. It is truly unique.

It is also adjacent to the Windjammer Landing Resort which you can walk actually through these grounds to the reception and the beach. Our guests have permission to use beach facilities and restaurants and can visit for the evening entertainment. So safe for children which was another plus as we personally had three young grandchildren who simply love this area.

An unexpected amazing stay at Mango Tree

  • 5 of 5

Little did we know vacationing in St. Lucia would lead us to meeting you Joan....our little guardian angel. We rented Flambeau Villa off of vrbo #381347ha for two weeks. We had to move out 5 days into our vacation as the house was a Fire Hazard and had many other problems. Joan our little angel was nice enough to let us move into Mango Tree Villa on a days notice when she was doing a few upgrades as house was not rented. Mango Tree Villa is most beautiful...the view with all the beautiful sunsets and sunrises and all the great amenities provided. The special attention and kindness you showed all six of us in spite of our anxieties were most appreciated. You have created a safe haven and great house atmosphere here at Mango Tree.

Thank you for having us to your home in Cap Estate, which is an absolute gem. We had a lovely afternoon, great fun and a delight to interact on a personal level with you, Alan and the puppies.

We are hopeful our paths with cross again. Please do not hesitate to call when you come visit your sister in Wakefield. We would love to meet you for lunch. Again thanks so much for renewing our faith that most people on this earth have a good heart and are trust worthy.

Carolyn, Keith, Jojo, Chuck, Dianne & Marc

Mango tree, Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

As they say when you arrive on the island "Welcome to the island of paradise"and the mango tree villa is certainly a great part of that paradise. Joan and Allen were fantastic people. very accommodating.After a long day of travelling with 3 young kids it was very nice to be greeted at the villa and given a warm meal and supplies in the fridge. the villa was very clean and spacious.great value for a 4 bedroom. the location is perfect.Attached to the Windjammer resort but still very private.Short drive to Rodney Bay or you can walk about 10 min to a local supermarket as well as the restaurants at the windjammer which you can reach by shuttle with a phone call from the phone in the villa.If you are going out for the day to explore the island we recommend "Bernard" through the company Joan uses. you have to request him specifically. Great guy. As he will tell you "If you need anything Bernard will get it for you" All in all it was a great trip.Thanks again Joan and Allen. We will definitely be back!!

Wonderful Relaxing Experience with Great Views

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time to St. Lucia, we stayed at the Windjammer resort the first time. This home is attached to the Windjammer resort and provided access to all the amenities of the resort. Of course one had to pay for the restaurants and the water sport activities but at no additional cost you are able to use the beach, brand new gym, water aerobics, yoga and shuttle to and from the villa. You can walk down to the resort from the villa and if in really good shape walk back up but rarely did we do that in the heat. The Villa itself was superb for 2 couples and could easily handle 8 people. The ability to dump in the pool was perfect when trying to relax or read and the view from either the upper or lower balcony was excellent. Joan was more than accommodating and even supplied food for the first night and breakfast the next day. We did have a small problem with the taxi on the way in that Joan had arranged but Joan made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of during the delay. FYI, the taxi problem was unexpected as was no reflection on the company that she hired. Would I stay there again, most definitely and we are already trying to arrange to come back with our kids.

The villa overlooks and is on the edge of a small local street so you do get a bit of the feel of area more than just being in the villa and the sounds of roosters in the morning are great if you are up; you won't hear them in the villa when sleeping.

Only item that stopped me from rating this as excellent was a number of small maintenance issue that need to be addressed...burnt out light bulbs, small problems with the tv's, microwave, toaster and door to gas for stove need some work. None of which are major in nature and as I said we are planning to come back.

One last thing that was a major benefit to not being in the resort was that you could walk to the main road in about 5 to 8 minutes and catch a bus into town for less than a $1US or walk another minute or two to a local grocery store for supplies. Doing this from resort is more like a 30 minute walk to the main road on a much busier and tighter road. We felt totally safe doing this. Might be a bit more careful at night but that is just common sense. You can always take a cab back to the resort and then the shuttle up to the villa.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay a truly enjoyed our visit to Saint Lucia. The photos for this property do not do this justice. There were six of us who stayed at this property and we had more than enough room. We didn't even use one bedroom while we were there. Joan was helpful from the very beginning from booking the villa, to arranging airport transfers for us to having dinner, breakfast, wine and some local piton beers in the fridge upon our arrival. The property is right next to the Windjammer Landing Resort which you have beach access to along with water sports, restaurants and bars at your expense. Was nice to be able to use the resort ammenities if you wanted to but if you wanted more privacy and quietness you could relax by the pool. The views of the ocean were beautiful and the villa is just a five minute walk to the beach. You can also call for the resort shuttle to take you down to the beach and bring you back to the villa from the beach if you wish. We opted for a few days to do day excursions from the resort but mostly we spent the morning hours by the brach and returned to the villa pool for the afternoon. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to return to Mango Tree Villa again in the upcoming years!

Baby sitters can be arranged through Reception desk at the Windjammer Landing Resort. Our guests also have permission to use the shuttle service from the Windjammerf to Mango Tree Villa if it is used sensibly.

All activities available are listed in the local magazine and the ziplines and the challenge is a great day out.

Go for a trip on the catamaran to Sourfrier where you will be taken to all the local places of interest, snorkel, and be taken to lunch. You would also be taken to the botanical gardens which is a must.
