Wonderful Vacation Villa with Private Pool and Stunning Garden!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at Habitation d l'Anse Mancenillier, and we highly recommend it, especially for American and British tourists for whom French is a challenge. Brigitte and Pierre are wonderful, attentive hosts, who speak excellent English, and live nearby. They helped us with local knowledge. For example Brigitte specifically looked up when the grocery stores would be open when we visited during Easter weekend, and had some food waiting for us when we arrived late at night when the grocery store was closed. They also quickly resolved the few small matters that came up (e.g. needing more towels).

The property itself is beautiful, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed, including a well-stocked kitchen. As you can see from the pictures, the interior is modestly, but tastefully decorated. What you cannot fully appreciate from the pictures is the lush, private garden behind the pool and surrounding the property with blooming lilies, orchids and hibiscus, among others. With the tranquil private pool, the villa feels very much like paradise, and all very conveniently located to the Marina, shops, restaurants and golf course in St. Francois.

There are a couple small considerations to mention, though this place certainly deserves a very high review. One is that each bedroom is a separate, self-contained suite which opens to the pool area. That was not ideal for our family with two small children (ages 2 and 5) who need to be constantly monitored around the pool. On the other hand, it may be perfect for families with older children or adults traveling together who want a bit of privacy. Also, the pool had a nice wading ledge for sunbathers and/or children, so it was nice pool for kids, in some ways. Another thing to mention is that there is an airstrip nearby and occasionally we would hear and see the planes. That did not detract from our enjoyment at all. The planes were only occasional and always during the day (not night or early morning). We actually enjoyed watching them fly overhead. However, it could bother someone who was very sensitive. Finally, the beach across the street is narrow and has lots of Mancenillier trees--fine for getting your feet wet, but you'll want to drive about 5-15 minutes to nicer beaches.

Still, overall, a wonderful vacation property with great location and welcoming hosts. It was a pleasure!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We enjoyed meeting you and we hope you'll come back! There is only one little thing I wanted to rectify : there are no "mancenillier" trees on the beach, they all have been cut a long time ago. The present growing trees are called " mapou gris" ( pisonia subcordata).

séjour enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Nous conseillons vivement cette location : en effet, tout y est agréable :

- les propriétaires sont agréables et discrets !

- la villa est idéale pour des vacances : trois chambres indépendantes chacune avec sa salle d'eau , un jardin autour, véritable écrin antillais, et, une prestation ainsi qu'une propreté remarquables ;

En descendant le chemin privé, vous tombez sur l'anse de Mansenillier avec une eau à 28 degrés ( la piscine devient accessoire et tant mieux car elle est petite ) :

Vous pouvez la réserver en toute confiance, vous n'aurez pas de surprise désagréable :

Que du bonheur!

  • 5 of 5

Tout était parfait, encore mieux que sur internet ont dit les enfants! Cette villa est vraiment bien conçue, bien entretenue, et la proximité de la plage est un atout majeur. Nous n'avons qu'une idée en tête : y revenir, et retrouver ce bel endroit et la chaleur guadeloupéenne.
