High on its perch overlooking the Caribbean sits the elegant Mango Hill Greathouse. This unique destination offers five-star luxury, total privacy, and plush comfort. Mango Hill Greathouse’s expansive views overlooks Christiansted Harbor, Buck Island, an 18-hole golf course and the hazy outlines of St. Thomas, St. John and Virgin Gorda. Mango Hill Greathouse is perfect for a gathering of friends or family. Built in 2006, its classic plantation house design features two-foot thick walls and soaring ceilings. Colorful Cuban art and West Indian antiques combine to create a playful, stylish vibe in this relaxed welcoming setting.
Mango Hill Greathouse is comprised of the Main House and the Guest House. The Main House includes three bedrooms; one with a king-sized bed, one with a queen-sized bed, and another with two twin beds which can be converted to a king-sized bed. The Guest House has one ensuite bedroom with a king-sized bed as well as a living room with bar. Other amenities include:
Mango Hill Greathouse offers 2500 square feet of covered verandas, with overhead fans and constant trade winds to keep life cool. Sip a morning coffee on the upper gallery, lounge on a cushioned chaise by the pool, or settle in with a sunset cocktail on a comfy sofa on the covered pool veranda. The occasional shy iguana or grazing fawn may be glimpsed amid the house’s lime, mango and soursop trees and night-blooming jasmine. At night, dine on the covered veranda overlooking the sparkling lights of Christiansted Harbor.
The main floor comprises a gracious front hall, spacious living room, AC dining room (seats 16), powder room, gourmet kitchen and breakfast seating area. Upstairs is a 30-foot long library, three oversized AC en-suite bedrooms (master includes sitting room) and a 75-foot long covered furnished gallery. A charming AC guest house just off the pool area provides the fourth en-suite bedroom with a living/entertainment room and bar.
Mango Hill Greathouse’s dedicated concierge, Colette, is on call 24/7 to answer all questions and offer insider suggestions. Poolside massages and yoga instruction, a personal chef, bespoke island tours, scuba lessons, snorkeling trips to Buck Island, horseback riding in the rainforest, hiking to the waterfalls — Colette can make it all happen. Guests write that Colette and the attentive staff are one of the highlights of their trip.
A 10-minute stroll from the house is the crescent, shell-strewn Shoys private beach. Or, opt for a two-minute drive (or hilly walk) to the Mermaid Beach at the Buccaneer Resort, with palm-shaded lounges and beachside restaurant and bar. The resort’s 18-hole Robert Joyce-designed golf course offers spectacular views: the tennis club, managed by Peter Burwash Int’l., includes weekly round robins and clinics on well-groomed courts. Private instruction and rental equipment is available, and there is a scene walking/running path around the property. A wide array of professional spa services are available at the Buccaneer’s Hideaway Salon.
Five minutes away, the charming town of Christiansted will delight with its classic Danish architecture, eclectic galleries, and wide array of boutiques. St. Croix is now recognized as the hot new “foodie” island, with a 5-page spread in Travel & Leisure’s January 2017 issue, hailing its brilliant new restaurants. It’s no surprise that Mango Hill has been photographed by Architectural Digest, chosen for a Pottery Barn photo shoot, or featured numerous times on HGTV. Come nestle into Mango Hill Greathouse for the luxury vacation you deserve!
