Mango Hill Greathouse combines the experience of living in a traditional Caribbean greathouse with the luxuries of a five-star resort. Perched atop a hill in a private gated community, and cooled by the constant prevailing trade winds, Mango Hill Greathouse’s views sweep from east to west — from sunrises over Buck Island to sunsets over Christiansted Harbor.
Built in 2006, the house was designed as a classic plantation house, and has more than 7,000 square feet of interior living space and covered verandas. Photographed by Architectural Digest and scouted for a network reality show, the house is furnished with antique West Indian furniture, oriental carpets and a lovely art collection.
Mango Hill Greathouse offers a spacious 14-foot high living room, a formal dining room, 30-foot long library, gourmet kitchen, breakfast room, three en-suite air-conditioned bedrooms in the greathouse, and a private air-conditioned Guest House with en-suite bedroom, living room and bar.
The 2500 square feet of outdoor furnished verandas offer ample seating and dining around the 40-foot heated pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The superb landscaping with tiered Danish brick planters surround the house, along with specimen palm trees, soursop and banana and lime trees, and night blooming jasmine and plumbago. Mango Hill is indisputedly the premier rental property on St. Croix.
The property is conveniently located next to the Buccaneer Hotel and Resort, which offers tennis, golf, beaches, restaurants and spa facilities. The city of Christiansted with fine galleries, shops and restaurants is a five minute drive: the airport is a 25 minute drive, the seaplane a 10 minute drive.
