Our Vacation Rental Property
La Plantation des Manguiers (Mango Plantation) dates back over 100 years. It has all the hallmarks of a house built to make the most of the climate in years gone by before air conditioning. The windows sport big heavy shutters and there is no glass, allowing the balmy trade winds to flow through the house. The sheltered wrap around veranda stays cool from morning to night protecting the interior from the heat of the day. From this sleepy veranda you can relax whilst watching the world go by in the distance. The commanding view changes constantly, with sailing boats, small planes, cruise ships, the changing colors of the sea and the sky all offering entertainment. On a clear day Martinique can be seen, sometimes so clearly that you feel that you could swim there! The interior of the house is elegantly decorated and furnished in keeping with the 'plantation' style wherever possible and is comfortable and inviting whilst still offering all the mod-cons to ensure a relaxing stay.
"What a treat to stay in a real home from home- the owners (Cathy and Jacques) move out when the guests are renting the house but live there when it's not booked and that makes for a wonderful family atmosphere. We were travelling as a family of 4 with a baby and a toddler and they also loved it. The toddler in particular loved her "princess bed" with canopy (mosquito net)!
The views from the verandah and upstairs were absolutely amazing, we literally didn't tire of gazing out to sea and over the hills of northern St Lucia. The garden was a real plus, good space for the eldest to run around in and it felt totally safe."
