Overview

About the property

Luxury townhouse, located in a tranquil environment yet minutes from the beach

Mango Court is the perfect location for your holiday on the beautiful West Coast of Barbados. This townhouse is nestled in a quiet road just a ten minute stroll from the crystal clear Caribbean Sea and golden sandy beach.

Number 2 is one of just four houses set within a walled courtyard development which provides both privacy and security, and entry is gained by electronic gates. Set around a beautiful turquoise pool with two outdoor showers, the large front courtyard area is the perfect place to relax. Sun loungers and a large umbrella are provided, and the small covered front patio with comfortable chairs is an ideal spot for reading, or enjoying a glass of wine under the stars before heading out to dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants nearby.

This 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom property is the ideal home away from home for discerning couples, friends or families. Stylishly furnished to provide colonial style living, it has a light and airy feel with a spacious open plan lounge and French doors leading to a covered dining terrace, which looks on to a private courtyard garden. The hand built wooden kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for your stay. Upstairs there are two air conditioned double bedrooms, and two bathrooms.

Andrea, the Property Manager, will liaise with you before your holiday and answer any questions you have. She will be at the house to welcome you on arrival and be available throughout your stay to ensure you have everything you need. A weekly maid service is included along with a welcome pack of essentials to start you off (tea, coffee, bread, milk, butter, local beers and a bottle of wine)

Why Alex O'Neal chose Porters

I chose this location for its close proximity to the sea and all the entertainment that the West coast has to offer. There are beach bars for sundowners, excellent restaurants for special nights out and lively bars where the music is good, the beers are cold and the company always friendly.

What makes this house unique

The house is tucked away in a quiet location yet only minutes from everything.

Being just four properties here at Mango Court, with all four rarely being occupied at the same time, one has a real sense of space and peace.

Every Aspect was Amazing

  • 5 of 5

From first dealing with the owner, I knew this was going to be a highly professionally run property. The house is nicely maintained by passionate owners who have great attention to detail. A few glitches with the property certainly indicated how committed Alex and Jason are to making your holiday stay as perfect as possible. Within minutes of reporting slight issues they were proactive and no expense spared to deal with swiftly. After two weeks we loved it and felt Alex, Jason and Wendy had become friends. You must stay when in Barbados, I am already discussing return dates. I travel to Barbados often and this property is really good value for money in a great quiet safe area.

Owner's Response: We loved having Gillian and her friend stay at the house! They were friendly, respectful of our property and genuinely lovely people. They were patient with us when one of our air conditioning units stopped working, reported it straight away, understood that these things sometimes happen and we were pleased we could resolve the problem within 24 hours. They have talked about returning in November - we would have them back in a heartbeat!

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at 2 Mango Court, we were greeted by the owners Alex & Jason. Alex & Jason made us feel extremely welcome & after a long flight it was great to see some necessities placed in the fridge & cupboards such as milk, eggs, tea, bread, beer etc. Alex & Jason showed us around the house & gave us some hints & tips on places to visit & things for us to see & do.

The house itself was absolutely beautiful, just like in the photo's, it was a true home from home experience - we couldn't fault it, the house had everything we needed. We didn't once say, damned we wish we had this. The pool was fantastic, my 12 year old daughter couldn't get enough of it.. It was lovely just getting up in the morning, having breakfast around the dinner table & then going out for a swim.

The location of 2 mango court was perfect, you can walk to the beach in about 5 minutes, walking to holetown took us about 15 minutes. But what was great is that a bus stop for the reggae reggae bus is about a 2 mins walk from the house & for 2BBD you can go to holetown or speightown. We stayed for 2 weeks & hired a car for 1 of the weeks, whilst the car was handy to have, it wasn't really necessary.

If you're looking to snorkel with turtles we'd recommend going with Jason, he also owns a catamaran & we went on the sunset cruise which was fab - we snorkelled with the turtles & snorkelled on the reefs - it was a very personal experience .. .

We had an amazing 2 weeks, fantastic accommodation, location was spot on, superb hospitality from Alex & Jason - We didn't want to leave .. We'd totally recommend staying here to our friends & family & we hope we' get the chance to come back.

Fantastic holiday and amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience with Doreen and Mike has been exceptional. From the time of booking to when we flew out there was numerous emails including advice on Barbados to asking what we wanted stocked in the fridge when we arrived. I travelled with my wife and 17 month old son and my parents. I was a little worried taking a little one but I needn't have been. Doreen arranged for a cot and lots of toys much to the excitement of my son! We felt instantly at home.

The house and pool is lovely and very comfortable. Everything has been finished to a high standard and is just as pretty as it looks in the photos. It has everything you need, including beach bags and beach mats which we were available to use. The location is accessible though I would certainly recommend a car, especially if you have a little one. Even so there is a bus stop a few minutes walk making getting around easy.

One of the best points is the beach which is a 5 min walk away which is extremely secluded with some natural ( tree) shade - perfect for us. In addition the Colony club is just a further 5 min walk which did amazing half price cocktails between 4 and 6 pm!

We did a lot of sight seeing including the caves and st Nicholas and mount gay rum tours which we would recommend. In addition we did some diving with reefers and wreckers in Speightstown who were amazing. If you get a chance you should definitely go to The Cliff for a cocktail which will not disappoint. There are many good restaurants near by so you will be spoilt for choice.

Overall we had a fantastic few weeks in Barbados and would highly recommend Mike and Doreen's beautiful house.
