Everything one could hope for to be comfortable. Great location close but not too close to Hillsborough.
We've stayed at the Mango on Carriacou twice now and would go back a third time if our budget permitted - we have other priorities this year.
Visit Paradise Beach and use the buses and taxis to see this wonderful island. We met and talked to many of the locals and enjoyed the way they gave us information as to the many things going on - our last visit included walking with a crowd of people reciting from Shakespeare's work! The annual carnival is also a favourite when it seems that half of Grenada comes to Carriacou by boat and plane.
Fully equipped and everything worked. Fantastic view, really quiet, very helpful owners, office a few steps away and lots of resident iguanas in the trees.
We wanted for nothing at this perfect location. An excellently equipped, well managed, well designed apartment. Slightly elevated position so cooled by trade winds with views across Hillsborough bay, the hills inland and off-shore islands. Located just off Hillsborough - Bogles road, 10 mins walk from beaches, 20 mins walk from Hillsborough. On local bus route with frequent service; buses serve nearly all the island. Met off the ferry and given a warm welcome by very helpful staff.
Carriacou is perfect for a quiet holiday with few other tourists and deserted beaches. Paradise beach and Anse La Roche was our favourites. Friendly, helpful local people. Excellent fish market. We did not want to leave.

I recently returned from my second visit to Carriacou, this was the first time that I had stayed at the Mango Garden Apartment.
The Apartment was very spacious and outfitted to a high standard. There was a warm welcome from the owners who had organised groceries and a hire vehicle for our arrival. The personal service we received could not be faulted.
The Apartment is located close to the main town, but far enough out to provide a peaceful vacation. Although Paradise beach is the main beach on the island a 10min walk from Mango Garden takes you to a lesser know beach at Sparrow Bay which we preferred. There are also many walking trails around this area (sturdy footwear is recommended).
This combination of well located and furnished apartment is ideal for people with a variety of interests: walkers, scuba divers, nature lovers & sun worshippers.
Alternatively if you just want to have a romantic break, I can highly recommend relaxing on the balcony with a rum and coke enjoying the breathtaking sunsets.
