Recent Guadeloupe reviews

  • Gorgeous view, charming unit, gracious host

    "We (2 adults, 2 teens) stayed in Gite Mangoplaya's 2 bedroom unit: brightly painted and colorfully decorated rooms are very inviting and clean. The views from the gite are fabulous. It is located on a hill with a view of the sea. When at home we spent most of our time on the large patio and at the outdoor dining table which is on an adjacent deck under a roof (which was handy for at he few times we had some rainfall). The kitchen area is small but functional and met all our needs. Our host/landlord Ray speaks excellent English and gave us many suggestions of places to visit on both Basse Terre and Grand Terre, as well as local restaurant recommendations. This was our first trip to Guadeloupe and we definitely plan to return to this beautiful and friendly island. We recommend you use the mosquito netting while sleeping, as the beautiful views from the windows are not hindered by any screens and if the windows are open, the mosquitoes will seek you out. Be prepared for a very steep driveway and somewhat tricky parking. We'll brush up on some French before our next visit -- this is NOT one of those places "where everyone speaks English"!"

  • Wonderful Vacation Villa with Private Pool and Stunning Garden!

    "My family had a wonderful time at Habitation d l'Anse Mancenillier, and we highly recommend it, especially for American and British tourists for whom French is a challenge. Brigitte and Pierre are wonderful, attentive hosts, who speak excellent English, and live nearby. They helped us with local knowledge. For example Brigitte specifically looked up when the grocery stores would be open when we visited during Easter weekend, and had some food waiting for us when we arrived late at night when the grocery store was closed. They also quickly resolved the few small matters that came up (e.g. needing more towels). The property itself is beautiful, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed, including a well-stocked kitchen. As you can see from the pictures, the interior is modestly, but tastefully decorated. What you cannot fully appreciate from the pictures is the lush, private garden behind the pool and surrounding the property with blooming lilies, orchids and hibiscus, among others. With the tranquil private pool, the villa feels very much like paradise, and all very conveniently located to the Marina, shops, restaurants and golf course in St. Francois. There are a couple small considerations to mention, though this place certainly deserves a very high review. One is that each bedroom is a separate, self-contained suite which opens to the pool area. That was not ideal for our family with two small children (ages 2 and 5) who need to be constantly monitored around the pool. On the other hand, it may be perfect for families with older children or adults traveling together who want a bit of privacy. Also, the pool had a nice wading ledge for sunbathers and/or children, so it was nice pool for kids, in some ways. Another thing to mention is that there is an airstrip nearby and occasionally we would hear and see the planes. That did not detract from our enjoyment at all. The planes were only occasional and always during the day (not night or early morning). We actually enjoyed watching them fly overhead. However, it could bother someone who was very sensitive. Finally, the beach across the street is narrow and has lots of Mancenillier trees--fine for getting your feet wet, but you'll want to drive about 5-15 minutes to nicer beaches. Still, overall, a wonderful vacation property with great location and welcoming hosts. It was a pleasure!"

  • Magnifique région et très bel hébergement en Villa

    "Superbe villa dans le paradis sur terre. La maison est grande et propre, super bien équipée avec même lave-vaisselle, machine à laver et Wifi. Avec 2 chambres à coucher et 2 salles de bains d'eau à l'intérieur l'endroit idéal pour une famille ou deux couples. A l'extérieur il existe encore 1 douche et sur la grande terrasse avec une vue magnifique sur la piscine (très bien car la mer est juste derrière et partout sur l' Ile) il y a également assez de place pour ceux, qui préfèrent dormir dehors. La mer se trouve à environ 1 minutes à pied sans côte pénible à monter ou descendre comme souvent dans ce quartier, ni obligé à prendre la voiture pour aller se baigner, à la superbe plage. La piscine est nettoyée 3 fois par semaine et superbe pour s'y baigner dans une eau si douce et chaude ou pour boire un cocktail). La jardin est bien soigné avec de magnifiques plantes, arbres fruitiers et fleurs colorées. Le propriétaire s'occupe de tout et est toujours à l'écoute de ses hôtes. Nous avons passé de superbes vacances dans ce paradis et y retournerons, c'est sûr !! Katia Marc Robin Sandrine"
