Staying at Rusty Pelican is a treat and Corinna is a very welcoming host. The flat was immaculate with huge rooms and a well equipped kitchen. The flat is very safe and clean.

We agree that there is a problem with too many dogs so The Rusty Pelican donates 2 % of profits towards sterilising dogs and cats.We've initiated a monthly sterilisation campaign here in La Gaulette and if successful, we will approach the Government to do likewise around the island! So every guest visiting helps towards this Thanks. More

I can fully recommend the Rusty Pelican for people coming for kiting or enjoying Mauritius outside of a resort/hotel. My apartment was large, beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped for cooking. There's a veranda, great tropical garden and pool. Further the owner Corinna provides all you need for a stay - bbq, snorkeling equipment, guide books and even a local mobile... More

I spent 12 days in April 2013 in Mauritius on business & had the very good fortune of picking the Rusty Pelican. Initially I thought it would be too far from Port Louis where I was to hold several meetings, but at the end of the day it was like coming home. Beautiful ambiance, everything about the Orange Room &... More

We stayed at The Rusty Pelican for 12 days in March, and we couldn't have asked for better accommodation and location.

I stayed at the Rusty Pelican in La Gaulette as this was very close the kite spot of Le Morne. The apartment was perfect and extremely spacious, clean and well-presented which is great if you have kite surfing equipment. The swimming pool was great and perfect after a day’s kite surfing.

When my husband and I were first shown the accommodation at Rusty Pelican, I thought that it was going to be way over our budget. The apartment was huge, beautifully designed and decorated (The owner Corrina clearly has an amazing eye for design) and opened onto the central courtyard where there was a small pool and nicely landscaped gardens.

We have been at Rusty Pelican last November, and we stayed there for almost a month. We went for La Gaulette basically for two main reasons: first of all because is very close to one of the main kitesurfing beaches (Le Morne) and secondly because that area is the one that better shows what Mauritius island really is and how...
