Mango Hill Greathouse


4 bedrooms, 4½ baths, sleeps 8

This luxurious hillside villa feels like home—that is, if your primary residence is a 6,800-square-foot estate with antique furnishings, a grand staircase, and a generous pool overlooking the ocean. Relax in the blue-and-white great room with a book from the library, or take in the view from one of the wicker chairs on the spacious sundeck. Upstairs, three suites channel breezy West Indian style with traditional shutters on all windows. Couples may want to claim Kumquat, the one-bedroom guesthouse adjacent to the pool with views of the water.

Rates start at $6,500 per week; 340/227-7899 or mangohillgreathouse.com.
