Mango Hill Greathouse, Shoys Estate, St. Croix Vacation Rental
Come to Mango Hill Greathouse, one of St. Croix’s finest residences, where 19th century elegance and 21st century convenience are married in a perfect jewel of a villa. Mango Hill is perched atop a private hill in Estate Shoys, the island’s most desirable seaside neighborhood, overlooking the site of a sugar plantation that was the boyhood home of America’s first Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton.
As you step through the “welcoming arms” entry, you’ll be captivated by room after room of the owners’ museum-quality artworks and collectibles. Coral stonework and antique Danish brick are accented by subtle hues of blue and cream and by well-chosen designer fabrics throughout. Oriental and sisal rugs offset fine hardwood floors in classic Caribbean style. Meticulous attention to detail extends to architectural elements, from West Indian tray ceilings to arched pocket doors and period hardware. Yet seamlessly blended are today’s most desired amenities – wireless hi-speed internet, flat-panel television, and VCR/DVDs.
On the first level you will find a spacious living room, formal dining room, and well-appointed gourmet kitchen with state-of-the-art stainless steel European appliances. Step through French doors to the covered, furnished verandahs leading to a spacious terrace and forty foot swimming pool. Adjoining the pool terrace is Kumquat, a whimsically-decorated tropical guesthouse with a bedroom and its own sitting room.
Up the curved mahogany staircase in the main house is a 30-foot library for quiet moments, and further, 3 serene bedroom suites with roomy private bathrooms crafted of tumbled marble and granite. Comfort is assured at Mango Hill by thoughtful touches like hairdryers, bathrobes, and extra towels for the pool.
Both indoors and out, from both floors, Mango Hill has spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and Christiansted harbor—delightful by day, as boats come and go, and dramatic by night as the sun sets and town lights begin to twinkle.
Conveniences for a perfect vacation abound nearby – the Buccaneer Resort’s 18-hole golf course is just below Mango Hill along with tennis courts and a spa. Shoys’ white sandy beach is a short walk or 2-minute drive, and the Danish colonial town of Christiansted is moments away.
You’ll fall in love with Mango Hill—the enchanting, elegant Greathouse that a colonial planter might have dreamed of creating, embodied in a one-of-a-kind vacation home.
Buccaneer Hotel Resort next door to Shoys offers two beaches, watersports activities and rentals, health spa services and sauna, tennis courts, shopping arcade, casual and fine dining, and an 18-hole golf course.
