To sum up this review in one word is – “Perfect".Our trip to Mauritius was nothing short of fun. It started with a comfortable ride from the airport to Althea's home, which was arranged by Mr Saïd. The house was absolutely amazing and better than we could have imagined, even after looking at the pictures online. This house was made for comfort and every detail about the house has been tastefully done. The smallest details have been kept in mind. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms were welcoming and the bathrooms were clean. Mr. Saïd helped keep us stay connected by getting us local sim cards too. He was always ready to help, which is one of the main reasons why we had such a great time in Mauritius. He even arranged for a cake on short notice, the day we arrived, as it was a friend's birthday.The house was perfectly situated with beaches, restaurants, malls, supermarkets etc. everything at walking distance. The places that Mr. Saïd recommended were fabulous and he can't go wrong. He helped us with bookings for activities like Scuba Diving, Casela Bird Park besides many others too. He made sure that we had a great time in Mauritius. Not only this, but he was eager to know if any improvements could be made, and with that kind of positivity he will stop at nothing to make staying there, a memorable experience for all his guests.Like him, the other helpers were really good too. Megha, who made the house look as good as new even after we'd leave it in a mess. Our night watchman, Dheeraj was always eager to converse and very helpful, Prabhu - the guy who worked on the campus brought coconuts for us so we could have coconut water too. Each person associated with Althea's home has been very helpful and thoughtful. It's like they enjoy being hospitable and we felt totally at home which is the motto Mr Saïd follows i.e “Your Home Away from Home" . We would love to make another trip to Mauritius, especially when Mr. Saïd has already chalked out a plan for our next trip.If you're looking for a place to hire for a trip to Mauritius then your search ends here - This is the place to be.

One of the best place to to stay in Mauritius in general and Grand Bay in particular. The property is not only close to the beach(80 meters to be precise) but is also located in the middle of the cosmopolitan Grand Bay area thus giving you easy access to excellent restaurants, activity centres, shopping arcades, super markets( Super U ,the biggest and the best in Mauritius is stone throw away)and Malls with multiplex( La Croisette) among others. The property has a nice pool with greenery all around( see pics). Interiors are tastefully done up( it turned out to be better than what it appeared in the pics). All basic and most of the luxurious facilities are provided. The hosts are ever welcoming and can arrange for anything which is available on the island,be it a pick up n drop from the airport, a veh on hire or the birthday cake @ midnight to surprise your partner. Thumb rule, if its there in Mauritius, it can be arranged. The place is also close to most of the major tourist attractions( Beaches, dive centres, submarine centre, aquariums etc). If you are interested in books then the Mauritian Pulic Library is within the sight. Bon Voyage n Happy Holidays.

Thank you, Vineet, for these kind words.
We are glad that we managed to give you your "dream holidays". Our aim is not simply to rent you a house but (a) to make sure that you get a house where you feel "at home away from home" and (b) to try to get you the best of what our island has to offer so that you can experience the islander's way of life.
Yes we can arrange for any services.... as long as it is legal though ;-)
We were very happy to have you as guests. You were all fantastic and easy-going - and really look forward to meeting you all again and/or host you in the future. Thanks again
