Quirky Caribbean Masterpiece
Wonderful house in an unforgettable location. Living in this old St Lucian house was, for four weeks, an experience we will never forget. It’s historical character was both quirky and above all comfortable providing a real feel of the Caribbean, which is so sadly lacking in modern day apartments and hotels. The view from the veranda overlooking Castries and the sea beyond, was both amazing and unforgettable. The house was very well equipped for everyday living complete with barbecue and fresh oranges from the garden...what more could one want!
Cathy and Jacques were the perfect hosts who could not do enough for us. We had two fantastic meals at their water front restaurant... highly recommended. The boy can cook!! Other local restaurants, the Pink Plantation and the Coalpot, are also very much worth a visit.
As the house is located off the beaten track a 4x4 /SUV vehicle is a must. Although we hired our own through Islander cars (who were excellent) Cathy was very helpful in providing us with information on local car hire companies.
Overall the holiday was first class and highly recommended.
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. We love to see people enjoy the house and garden as much as we do. I love your description of the house, it certainly is unusual and gives visitors an authentic feel for life in the Caribbean before concrete took over.
Peaceful, beautiful house and amazing views
Hands down, this was one of the loveliest places I've ever stayed and we can't wait to return! Cathy, our host, was friendly and helpful - available when we needed her while giving us privacy at the same time. She helped us arrange a boat trip with snorkeling at deserted beaches and deep sea fishing with Rabbit (ask for him, he's amazing!), and treated us extremely well when we dined at their waterfront restaurant, Jacques (which we also recommend!) The house had amazing views and we spent many hours relaxing on the veranda, looking out over the water, listening to the neighbor's music vying with the insects. We had daily visits from Maya, the German Shepherd, and she brought a smile to our faces every time she stopped by while exploring. The property is lovely, with many different fruit trees and flowers in blossom. You can tell this home has been well loved and the structure itself is absolutely gorgeous with dark wood and trade wind breezes blowing through. We found it was the perfect place to come home to after zip-lining, climbing Gros Piton, hiking and snorkeling at Pigeon Island, and visiting the market in Castries. We loved our daily walks through the surrounding neighborhood and found the Pink Plantation house was a nice place to have lunch. We really can't recommend this home enough and are already anticipating our next visit!
A wonderful place to stay
We chose Mango Plantation for our recent stay in St Lucia. Its a lovely, authentic old plantation house, and was perfect for our needs. The house offered all we needed for our stay, and the garden and surroundings were perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sunshine (and humming birds). As others have mentioned, access to the house is not straight forward, the roads are quite challenging, and a 4x4 is strongly recommended, although we just about managed with the normal car that the hire company delivered. The trip to Soufrieres is well worth making, and Pigeon Island was also good. Castries itself is a little disappointing, but the market offers fresh fruit and veg, and there is a supermarket next to the market for other provisions.
Cathy is a good host, and made sure that our arrival went smoothly, and was on hand for advice and help on what to see and do. She also kindly gave us a guided tour of the local surroundings, which was a massive help for us finding our way around.
Nous avons passé 2 semaines très agréables dans cette grande maison située dans les hauteurs de Castries avec vue sur le port et la mer. La villa est très bien équipée et nous avons énormément apprécié l'accueil réservé par Cathy à notre arrivée.
Pleasure in Sainte Lucie
We had the pleasure to stay at Mango plantation last January. We were 3 couples, staying for a week, looking for tranquility and peace far away from our busy lives in France.
The location of the house on top of the hill, overviewing the beautiful bay of Sainte Lucie, surrounding by the nature made our stay fantastic. Isolated from the rest of the world, we had the most relaxing time.
Cathy, the owner, is a beautiful person, always responding to our questions, despite the fact she is a very busy woman, she took very good care of us all, she was so helpful and always with a smile. We just loved being in their House.
We definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants to discover beautiful Sainte Lucie Island....The house is very well equipped, we never went out at nigh except 2 .... in their nice restaurant by the harbor " Chez Jacques" which I do recommande too :)
You just need a good car to climb up there :)))

The best time ever!!! We've rebooked for next year.
My husband and I stayed two weeks at the Castries Plantation House. The house is charming and the views are stunning. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything since the owner is a chef on the island. While we were there, the mangos were ripe and I would go out every morning to collect our delicious bounty. We had more mangos than we could eat by the time we left. There was a dog, Maya, whom we loved. We are cat people in the states but Maya provided an extra layer of enjoyment during our stay. I hope she misses us because we miss her. Cathy was great and suggested some interesting things for us to do besides diving. They do own a restaurant, so they know all of the nice places to eat and visit. We visited her restaurant about 3 times and each time was better than the last. All in all, it was nice having a friendly contact on the island. The house is close to the town of Castries, and we were close to outdoor vegetable and fruit and fish markets which were fun and colorful. Driving on the island was wild but my husband managed it heroically. We have rebooked for next year. We could not get anyone to come and a meet us on our vacation this year but I'm afraid we will have too many people and family wanting to visit us next summer. Counting the days!
La Plantation des Manguiers ligger i den lilla gemenskap Bois Cachet (dold trä). Väl framme vid huset är det svårt att tro att du är bara några minuter från huvudstaden Castries, inbäddat som det är, bland träd och lövverk, särskilt mangoträd, därav villan namn. Med breathtaking utsikt över Castries ut till Pigeon Island i norr och Martinique bortom, är Mango Plantation avkopplande och lugn med gott om integritet. Castries är 5 minuter med bil eller buss (10 minuters promenad till närmaste busshållplats, alla ned hill !!) Den vita sandstranden i Vigie med sin skuggande träd är 10-15 minuter från villan och förutom att vara bra för ett dopp är också trevligt för en tidig morgon eller sen eftermiddag promenad. Reduit strand, är ett populärt turistområde cirka 30-40 minuter med bil beroende på trafiken. Pigeon Island är 5-10 minuter längre norrut härifrån och erbjuder stränder, promenader och historiska ruiner, är det en bra plats för små barn att springa runt.
Golf: Sandals Regency ligger bara 5 minuter från villan med bil eller en utmanande 30 minuters promenad och erbjuder en magnifik kurs med böljande kullar och majestätiska fairways. En utmanande nio-håls layout på 3.141 varv och par 33, den här kursen har smala fairways, vilket gör den lämplig för duktiga golfare, men det är också populärt bland nybörjare. Det finns också St. Lucia Golf Club som ligger på den norra spetsen av ön och ligger inom de vackra böljande kullarna i Cap Estates. Den par-71 spelar till 6685 yards / 6113 meter och har utsikt över Karibiska havet och Atlanten. Banan öppnades 2001 och har sedan dess blivit en av de mest krävande layouter i Västindien. Det par 4 öppningshål får spelarnas uppmärksamhet direkt med en fairway bevakad på höger med ett vattenhinder och träd och på vänster med Out of Bounds. Denna kurs är cirka 40 minuter från villan med bil beroende på trafiken. Om du behöver ytterligare information om golf i St Lucia, eller bokningar gjorda i förväg om din ankomst Cathy kommer att bli glad att hjälpa till.
