HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE:
There has been massive destruction found across the island of St. John. Lots of cleanup and rebuilding needed over the next several months. Projected reports of power restoration to the entire island could be up to 3-6 months. At this time, we do not know the condition of Coral Bay, whether Mango suffered any damages, or when we will have power restored.
Unfortunately, we can longer accept reservations at this time. For those that do have reservations, we will keep in touch with you and when we are for sure up and running, we will let you know.
We are still awaiting power restoration. Unsure when that will be. We have some repairs to do to the deck, and a window to replace, but all in all Mango faired well. We were one of the lucky ones. The island is greening up well. Spirits remain high! Some restaurants and business open and more opening soon!
UPDATE JANUARY 6th
We still have no power, however we heard BBC is putting up lines over the next 2 wks from Salt Pond to Lameshur and we are just before Lameshur. So hopefully power soon!!! We have a few repairs to do to the deck and replace a window, so hopefully we can begin taking reservations in late March. Keep checking back here for updates or like us on Facebook.
Please like us on Facebook @ Between the Beaches Mango Villa, St John USVI for update on the status of Mango and island restoration.
Between the Beaches of Grootpan Bay and Kiddle Bay lies Mango Villa. Nestled into the hillside overlooking a large saltpond and Grootpan Bay, this villa borders the USVI National Park. Only a 10-minute drive from lively Coral Bay, the only sounds at Mango Villa are birdsong and crashing surf.
Mango Villa is a 3 BR/2 BA single-story private home; there are no shared facilities. It offers flat parking and easy access, and is fully equipped with everything you will need for a relaxed island holiday.
You will be a short distance from Concordia Eco Lodge and Restaurant, VIERS, and the popular beaches at Salt Pond and Lameshur. This is truly St. John Off The Beaten Track.
Inside, the kitchen and Great Room feature vaulted ceilings with exposed Mahogany beams and a 10ft Mahogany breakfast bar. The kitchen is fully equipped.
The Master Suite, with private bath, is separate from the rest of the house and has a queen bed plus a single bed. Each of the bedrooms has a queen bed and sliding doors onto the deck with a view of Grootpan Bay.

About Brianna Tallian
We are 3 professional women living in the Midwest, who have been coming to St. John for years. We finally decided that life is short, and it was time to have a place for ourselves and our families to escape the northern winters. We hope it will give you the same pleasure that it gives us.
Brianna Tallian purchased this House in 2013
Why Brianna Tallian chose Estate Mandal
This is not the resort Caribbean. This is a private spot at the end of the road. This is peace and quiet on our favorite island.

St. John is VERY much alive
This is our third time staying at Mango - we just can't stay away from this end of the island. We were booked a long time before the hurricanes hit, so we were super nervous to see what had happened to our little island. Turns out, our fave little villa was pretty untouched. You can see that there was a lot of damage, but that part of the island was well protected - the northern side got hit hard though. They also seem to be doing a great job of clean-up. The electric, water and cell phone service all worked perfectly, and only 2 restaurants are still working on rebuilding. All of the ATMs worked and grocery stores were stocked as normal. Miss Josephine has even gotten her amazing salad greens back in stores!!!
So, enough of the logistics - on to the good stuff.
It is peaceful everywhere you go. There were never many tourists there, but now it's just amazing. Of course the bars are still hopping, but a few times we were on beaches like Lameshur and Salt Pond with ZERO other people. Side note - take the hike out to Rams Head from Salt Pond. Wow! Anyway, we just couldn't get over how cool it is to have your very own half mile of sandy beach! in the middle of the day
The best part is, of course, the people. They got hit hard by those hurricanes, but you can see how they are working to bounce back. Their resilience is amazing and it felt good to our spend money locally to help them rebuild. If you've been to St. J before, you know that the Coral Bay spirit is strong. It can be bruised, but it obviously won't be broken.
Great place for our family's visit to St. John!
We enjoyed staying at Between the Beaches Mango Villa with our adult sons very much! It truly is between two beaches. They were a short walk away and we went to them repeatedly for swimming and snorkeling. I think the most people we ever saw at these two beaches was 6 people and that included 3 of our family. Frequently we were the only ones there. We were also very close to Salt bay beach and Little Lameshure which we also truly enjoyed.
The unit was very comfortable and my older son said this is exactly what our beach house would look like if we had one! We cooked there each night and enjoyed eating on the deck at the start of the week. The tail end of our week, the mosquitoes had a strong enough presence we ended up eating inside. St. John's has no springs or natural water sources so you will likely want to purchase drinking water to bring with you once you hit the island. We really enjoyed our visit to St. John and to the Virgin Island National Park. We rented a jeep for our visit and we'd recommend you do the same. Each member of our family agreed Mango Villa was a great place for us to stay on the quiet side of the island!
The place was amazing with beautiful views. It had a homey feeling. A great place to relax after a busy day. Our plans changed and needed to spend an extra night, Briana got back to us quickly and worked with us so we could. I appreciated all the information (food, beach info, activities, etc) she had in the house.
Best end of St John
Way preferred this end of island. Less crowded and commercial, yet some of the best eats nearby, hikes and Salt Pond Beach was our very favorite. Although many "Holy Hairpin!" moments driving across the island, no problem and no difficulties finding parking on this end. This property is a little dated, but very spacious and very nice for the money. Views can't be beat from the deck overlooking the water. Beds comfortable and AC. (No washer/dryer if that is an issue for you-quick dry and technical clothes are what I recommend for the VI anyway, and this end of island more arid, so things dry remarkably quickly). Totally equipped, owner communicated via txt with us throughout our 4 days here whenever we had questions. I would come back and /or recommend to other budget travellers in particular. Last thing- get a VERY detailed account of how to get here; owner will furnish a great set of directions, but don't leave the directions at home like I did!!! GPS not much help here.
I can't say enough about Mango Villa.
It is everything and more as described here in the ad. The porch is huge and overlooks two beautiful bays and the sunset. The house is very well supplied with everything you need to cook, watch movies, listen to music or just watch the birds....
We also loved the layout of the house because we have a teenager so everyone really has their privacy.
Will definitely be returning !
We went for our 38th wedding anniversary. We spent most of our awake time on the deck, enjoying the warm breeze, birds and view. The house is with in walking distance of 2 beaches. We enjoyed the walk and the snorkeling. St John is a great island and would recommend it and this house for your stay.
