This is a unique Caribbean property on a stunningly beautiful, green, laid back, island paradise made of 14 ancient volcanoes and one that is currently occasionally active. It is the only island in the Eastern Caribbean that relies on natural springs for its drinking water and irrigation The House is in Woodlands, which is becoming the most desirable residential area in Montserrat because it is far enough away from the volcano not to be affected by volcanic activity, yet close enough to witness the power of nature in its unadorned state.
As one of the few remaining British colonies in the world, Montserrat is politically stable, an idyllic paradise with a friendly helpful network of 4500 residents, no stoplights, few two storey buildings, but with good food stores, restaurants, a hospital, hiking trails and live entertainment. Montserrat has a world renowned volcano observatory.TripAdvisor property ID 3727785...Read more

My friends and I stayed in Mango Grove for 10 days during Montserrat's St. Paddy's day festivities. The accomodations were great, kitchen was sufficient, tons of outdoor space, close to the ocean, really couldn't ask for much else. We ate all our meals on the upstairs patio overlooking the ocean. The pool was great for a quick cool down in the afternoon after a morning of hiking or island exploring. The downstairs bedroom is amazing. Lots of big screened windows meant the temperature was always perfect, you could hear the ocean and the forest. Geographically, it is a very short walk to the beach (I recommend using the road rather than the trail through the wooods), very close to the grocery store Rams (and the neighboring produce stands on the road) and a quick drive from Salem, where most of the festivities took place. We were warned by locals that the water at Woodlands beach can be a little rough. The first two days this was the case (it was apparently an abnormally bad for the whole island, the ferry wasn't even running because of coastal waves), but after that it was no worse than an average beach day on the east coast of the USa. The downstairs pool area has plenty of seating and a fantastic view of the sunset. You really feel alone as there are only two villas within view on the patio, and neither are close enough to feel your privacy being invaded. Some of the photos of this villa make it seem larger than it actually is, but it is still a very comfortable, spacious house that can easily accomodate a large group of adults. We plan on visiting Montserrat again and will definitely look into the availability of Mango Grove.

Our experience at Mango Grove and Montserrat stands out as the most memorable and unique travel experience so far. We were fortunate to have a full moon during our stay. The veiw from our bedroom of the moonlight sparkling on the Caribbean was breathtaking.My wife was thrilled with the pool that is half protected from the elements yet open to the Sun and ocean view.The poolside grand piano was another hit. The owners were excellent in providing us with information about the property and also leaving us with lots of information to help us find our way around the island.If one is looking for night life and shopping this is not the place to go. If you are looking for peace and quiet, magnificent scenery and a freindly, safe island paradise, then Mango Grove and Montserrat would be really hard to top.

Newly renovated villa, thoughtfully designed and appointed. All-weather pool and outdoor living area. Beautiful views of the sea, and a short walk to the beach. An ideal spot for exploring the island. We look forward to a return visit.

A week in Paradise (mid-January, 2012) - Mango Grove, Montserrat.
Breakfast on the terrace, an unobstructed view of the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean, surrounded by lush foliage and gorgeous flowers. Lunch around your very private pool, complete with waterfall (and baby grand piano!)And just a short walk to the most beautiful, quiet beach. The whole house has been just completed and is filled with Caribbean-style and antique furniture as well as up-to-date appliances and a well-supplied kitchen. The villa has a flat-screen TV in the living room as well as a TV in the lower level. Each bedroom is tastefully and artistically decorated in different styles - and most comfortable. We are looking forward to returning to Mango Grove soon.
