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.

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.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of St John
We had a wonderful family spring break with our 2 tweens. The space suited us perfectly and was decorated in a fun, artistic Caribbean style. It was comfortable and everything we needed for cooking in was available. Mornings and evenings on the screened patio were amazing. We especially loved the birds and colony of hermit crabs that live by the walk (which has exquisite plantings!)
What can be better than rolling over in bed in the morning and seeing the beautiful Caribbean water? Mango Villa is the perfect place for it! We came to St. John to celebrate my 50th birthday and loved it here on the quiet side of the island.
Close enough to the fine restaurants and the wonderful snorkeling all over the island! We found it easy to go out in the morning to snorkeling or hang out on one of the beaches, drive back to the house to shower and then head out for dinner. Loved how close we were to Salt Pond Bay, where we got to see turtles as we snorkeled!
The screened in porch was a big hit - great to sit out on any time of day. We made use of the grill with some local fish (yum!). The other amenities like the TV and games were nice, but we were so tired at the end of the day, we didn't even use them.
We will definitely be back to St. John. And I definitely recommend Mango Villa for a wonderful, slow paced vacation!! 5 stars all around!
Thanks for the great review. Come see us again !
A peaceful retreat
Mango Villa was just what we needed! This very nice home was well stocked with all of the basics for cooking and housekeeping, clean, comfortable, and well maintained. But the best part was how peaceful and beautiful the setting was. Do yourself a favor and rent a Jeep for the drive up the access road (and for a lot of the drive in St John, for that matter), but once there we heard only the sound of the surf in the distance, the wind, the occasional brief rainshower, and the birds who visited on the deck. On the few occasions that the mosquitoes got too insistent, the screened in porch (which also looks down across the Salt Pond and the surf beyond) gave us the perfect place to sit and talk and just listen to the silence. We got in the habit of cooking breakfast, driving to one of the many nearby hikes, and ending the hike on a beach where we could swim or snorkel. after a quick trip back to the villa for a shower, we would then drive into Coral Bay or Cruz Bay for a great dinner (Lime Inn quickly became our favorite). All in all, an amazing place and an amazing stay. Thank you.
Great view, close to great snorkeling on St John
Property was as advertised. Very quiet and well stocked from kitchen to bath and bedrooms. Fantastic porch that even had canvas "blinds" to shade when the sun was in the west. If you are looking for quiet and off the grid, with comfort and room, this is your place.
Nice house on the quiet side of the island
We had a great time and greatly enjoyed all the extras the owner provided like beach towels, chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment etc. The night sky from the balcony was amazing. The owner was very responsive to all of my questions and the information provided was very helpful! This property is on the quiet side of the island so the roads were more difficult but the crowds were much less. You have to have a high clearance vehicle (like a jeep) to get to this property! When we visited the two beaches that are about a 5-10 minute walk from the house we were the only ones there!
