Mango Hill Greathouse
Mango Hill Greathouse
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 Greahouse’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, 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.
Mango Hill Greathouse is the undisputed premier private villa on St. Croix for a wedding, family reunion, small scale conference or corporate retreat.
WEDDINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS: For the discerning couple who are looking for the perfect get-away wedding, Mango Hill provides ultimate privacy, spectacular ocean views, and an unforgettable romantic setting for lifelong memories. A reception for up to 40 people can share your special milestone. Eight people can enjoy the four en-suite bedrooms at the Greathouse and additional guests can stay at the Buccaneer Hotel and Resort located at the bottom of the hill, and offering golf, tennis, restaurants, beaches and spa services (special rates may be arranged.)
There is a seven-night minimum stay requirement , a $1500 event charge, and a $2,000 security deposit. The services of a wedding planner are mandatory to ensure a flawless celebration. The wedding must be at least two days prior to departure. Please contact us for further details and a Terms and Conditions Agreement.
CORPORATE CONFERENCES AND RETREATS: The Greathouse is also the ideal setting for a smaller scale conference, corporate retreat, family reunion or special group celebration.
