Bequia, The Grenadines
Mangwana, Bequia, The Grenadines.
Mangwana is a dramatic example of the 21st century’s new generation of highly engineered Caribbean architecture, set in a truly spectacular location.
With concept design by British-based architect Jake Edgley, who trained with internationally renowned Sir Norman Foster, this outstanding property has a spacious, relaxing atmosphere making it uniquely suited for a sophisticated yet informal, Caribbean vacation with family or friends.
Based on the Moorish principle of using water as a central feature, most of the rooms lead directly off the elegant pool, making Mangwana spacious, cool and airy yet surprisingly intimate. Looking south from a height of 600 ft down over the jewel-like southern Grenadines, the pool has simply amazing views all around.
Situated at the top of Friendship Heights, Mangwana offers one of the most breathtaking locations on Bequia.
From the wooden sun deck at tree top level, guests have a captivating 300 degree view encompassing Battowia and Balliceaux to the east, Mustique (only six miles away) to the southeast, the entire south Grenadines and Bequia’s own leeward side with its beautiful beaches. You could spend your entire vacation watching the ever-changing effects of light on the reefs below, the ebb and flow of the ocean, and the passage of the sun, moon and clouds over the bays and lush hills of Bequia to the distant islands beyond. Watch the sunrise directly from your bed or the sunset from the west facing balconies with a cool sundowner in hand.
You enter Mangwana at mezzanine level directly into a vast living area with vaulted ceiling, open- plan kitchen and magnificent 16 ft high Brazilian hardwood doors which in turn open onto the pool and frame one of the villa’s many stunning views. The villa also enjoys a spacious south-west facing shaded terrace with BBQ and a peaceful walled garden.
Mangwana is a family house with ample opportunities for fun and action. It has its own games room and TV room with large flat screen TV. Amenities include table tennis, table football, a rowing machine and massage table, plus an area for petanque (boules) in the grounds below.
There is a safety net available to screen the pool from small children should parents prefer.
Mangwana's six cool and breezy bedrooms are large and versatile. Two have king-sized beds whilst the remaining four have twin beds, all of the twins can be locked together as doubles. Five of the six bedrooms have their own en suite bathrooms; two of them open to the night skies. All bedrooms have their own private balcony, some overlooking the pool, others looking outwards over the ever-changing seascape.
Mangwana also has a private guest wing with its own kitchen and laundry room and two large balconies with breathtaking views.
Located high above Bequia, Mangwana is exceptionally quiet and peaceful, yet it is just a ten minute drive to the shops, bars and restaurants of Port Elizabeth and the beaches of Lower Bay, Princess Margaret Bay and Friendship Bay.
There is a walled garden with nice lawn, perfect for children at play and the gardens in general have matured and offer a natural contrast to this stunning villas crisp facade.
A car is recommended so is therefore included as complimentary with Mangwana’s vacation package.
Grenadine Island Villas are pleased to present this exceptional new property to you. Seeing really is believing to fully appreciate Mangwana’s unique blend of privacy and space, tranquillity and drama, nature and architecture, all in a spectacular setting.
Guests are usually greeted and introduced to the property by the owners themselves - this is unusual in todays age of characterless villa rentals and this personal welcome is a wonderful starting point. The owners are not far away should you need assistance beyond that of the Property Manager.
