From the moment we contacted Shirley for booking to our return home to Canada, we had exceptional service with a smile. We were helped & guided from arrival for the airport pickup, car rental, site visits across the island, on-site massage options, etc. Indranee, the housekeeper & chef also took care of us every day and cooked us delicious meals at our request when requested. The villa is exception and true to the description. The outdoor area is perfect for relaxation & socializing. The pool is paradise. Grand Baie beaches are beautiful and shopping is also close by. Our stay was perfect & if we could, we would still be there. No hesitation in recommending!
Fantastic villa.....very close to a the eateries and shopping...
The villa is very well maintained...well equipped and secure...The kids loved the pool....Indrani prepared delicious food for us...and last but not the least....Shirley,a wonderful host ....Thank you once again.
we travelled to mauritius for our friends wedding, and after months of researching i came across this villa and am so glad i booked it! this villa is absolutely beautiful, there were 4 adults and one child and we had more than enough room and could easily have fitting 2 more couples in.
firstly i would like to thank Shirley for allowing me to book this villa swifty and for being patient with us as we were extremely delayed from the airport dropping our party to various villas, in which she waiting for us to arrive and welcomed us with refreshments and kindness!
secondly and importantly i would like to thank Rani, anyone who stays here will realise the true gem of this villa is Rani who is extremely lovely and helpful and cooks like a godess!
upon arrive rani cooked us a delicious lunch which was beautifully laid out on the table (chicken curry, rice, lentils, salad). After a long flight it is just a fabulous way of being greeted. she kept the villa clean and was juts most helpful. Rnai was kind enough to prepare our lunches, we would give her money and she would buy the good and prepare and cook, which took a lot of stress of our shoulder as we were so buys with the wedding that it was lovely to come to the villa and chill and eat, the portion sizes were so generous so we were able to have another serving later on in the day!
Some of our friends in other (more modern villas) were really envious that we had rani as they were being charged double the amount for food and spend most the time paying taxis to deliver food to their villas!
the villa is clean and the best room is the master room downstairs, but this does not take anything away from the others ads they are still lovely, and tbh you only change and sleep in your rooms!
there is wifi in the villa but it's not as good upstairs, and there were a variety of dvds and a dvd player, but all the films are in french so juts a top to take some films as you can play them there.
the pool is a great size and it is just simply beautiful, we had some cloudy days here and the villa was shaded therefore we took a walk to the local beach which was blazing with the sun!
one important factor to mention is how safe we felt in this villa the security system is great and if the alarm goes off security will call you check everything is great!
alos bear in mind the villa is in a residential area, after the wedding we had a few people back who had to wait for there transportation and were a bit loud therefore if you would lie avilla where you can have parties and make lots of noise then this may not bed the best for you. but during the day i would play my music and there was no problem with this.
there is a small supermarket store about 10 minutes from the villa in which we stocked up with essentials such as milk tea coffee eggs etc and i juts cannot stress how wonderful our stay was here! i would love to come back and re book with my parents (during summer months so i can really sun bathe in the villa)
thank you to shirley and rani for your hospitality and looking after us! we had such a memorable stay and hope to return in the near future!
First visit to Mauritius and just returned from a beautiful holiday at the Beau Manguier Villa.
We wanted the kids to have a feel home factor. After researching locations and hotels we went for ‘Beau Manguier Villa’ as it really fitted what we were looking for. We wanted somewhere peaceful, cosy, tranquil, a place where kids could run around the garden and pool. The location is spot on and right opposite to the ‘Merville Beach Resort’ in the heart of the Grand Baie area close to the ‘La Cuvette’ beach.
The private gate opens to the villa which is surrounded by lush green vegetation and palm trees. The villa has all modern conveniences: lounge, outdoor furniture with bbq, fully-equiped modern kitchen. The enormous balcony, the manicured lawn area, the sun-lounges,The guest sitting area overseeing the pool - everything is just prefect!!! There’s also a barbeque in the garden area. The entire villa is comfortably furnished and well equipped including satellite TV and WIFI. The bed rooms are basic and has AC’s and ceiling fans throughout with large comfortable bedding and walk-in wardrobes. The villa is very clean
and value for money. All rooms are serviced and kept clean on a daily basis by the maid.
The only slightly annoying thing we had was the mosquitos early evenings. I think it was mainly because of the dense plantation. I would suggest to plant few insect repelling plantation which can keep annoying mosquitoes away and introduce wonderful scents throughout the garden especially near the outdoor guest seating area or the doorway.
It was a fantastic holiday experience which started from a helpful and friendly first point of contact with Shirley (the owner of the vialla) when making/ confirming the arrangements tha lasted throughout the period until we left the villa accommodation. Shirley was very warm, responsive, helpful, friendly. Had an amazing stay!
Thank you Shirley for the warm welcome and the surprise lunch buffet on our arrival :-) You really treated us like family. We are definitely coming back.
Cheers!!! Rahul, Anita, Shailesh, Amruta and kids (India).
From the time we arrived at Beau Manguier Villa we experienced the warm hospitality offered by the owner and house assistant. Our complementary juice and meal on arrival was a much welcomed treat after a long days travel. Whilst the villa is located close to beaches and shops we were grateful for our rental car which afforded us the opportunity to explore more of the island. The villa is family-friendly and perfect for that much needed holiday away from the crowds.
