Great view on the bay , 5 min from shops/restaurants in Grand Bay by local bus.
Swimming pool too cold in august but sea is just behind :-)

“Lovely Place to Stay”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

All the other reviews are correct. I contacted the owner via TA and wired a deposit then paid the balance in cash on arrival to the agent. The owner Jacques was very reponsive to all my emails. The agent required a damage deposit of 500 euros on arrival paybale by cash or check and returned it the end of my stay. Sophie the agent was again very repsonsvie during the booking process.

The villa is in a complex of about 8 proprties with a private pool and access to the beach. The rooms are large and all the bedrooms have AC but not the living area. We visited during the winter period and opening the doors was quite adequte to keep the downstairs cool.

The property comes with a lovely local lady, Joselyn, who will keep the place clean, wash the dishes, make the beds and even cook dinner for you if you require, she comes every morning except Sunday.

If you like to go out at night to the restuarants in Grand Bay I would recommend a car or taxi, even though its not far the road is not suitable to walk as it has many areas without sidewalks and is very dark.

There were just 2 of us but this property could easily sleep 8 in the 4 beedroom each with its own bathroom.

Finally the agent Sophie can help you plan all the of many things to see in Mauritius.

“Couldn't ask for a better place to stay”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This villa was brilliant and extremely spacious, the views were breathtaking and i could honesty not have asked for a better place to stay. We came as a family of 8 with kids as well as the grandparents, so having the beach at your doorstep was lovely and a swimming pool. The villa was fully equipped with everything needed making us feel right at home. The maid Jocelyn was also very lovely and friendly. Will definitely recommend this villa to family and friends.

“You will love this place!”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was a big family holiday (immediate and extended family). The Villa was so spacious that it suited us perfectly! It is exactly as you see it in the photos. Each bedroom has its own bathroom so this made getting ready to go out quick and painless. The kitchen is fully equipped which is great for when you feel like eating in.
We stayed just over 3 weeks. In that time, we travelled all over the island. In our opinion, this Villa is located in the best part of the island. Not only is the beach on your doorstep, but it is in close proximity (walk/short cab ride) to all the shops, restaurants, bars and clubs.
Jocelyn, the housekeeper, was fantastic. She's also a great cook. We didn't want to go out for dinner every night so it was good to know we could call on her to make a great Mauritian meal.

Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a big group family holiday including my grandmother who is disabled and I was pleased to say that she had a very comfortable stay. My son absolutely loved the villa and the beach at on our doorstep practically!!!! I would recommend this villa to anyone. Jocelyn our angel who came and cooked, cleaned, gave us great tips which made our holiday perfect she cooks a really good meal. Jocelyn is also very trustworthy and a hardworker.
