“Very comfortable apartment, pool and garden”

We enjoyed a month at black reef and was very pleased with the apartment. The pool, sunbeds and garden were kept immaculately and staff were very helpful.

Its a stroll into the village with a supermarket, fruit stalls and a few restaurants.

The only slightly annoying thing we had was a barking dog from a house behind which woke us up a few nights not that we could expect our apartment owners to do anything about though.

Spacious top floor unit on the beach. Large fully equipped kitchen. Glen will advise you on the best street food stalls in the area. If you don't feel like the 10min walk to shezpopo and main beach take the bus(18rs).Go fishing on Glens boat Namlamer witch is equipped to catch marlin and game fish.
Book early. Don't miss out on this gem

“Picture Perfect!”

We returned to Mauritius for our 40th wedding anniversary & while things have naturslly changed in that time, this accommodation & its location were ideal. This top-floor, one-bedroom apartment has all modern conveniences: large, comfortable bedding, air-conditioning, lounge, outdoor furniture with bbq, fully-equiped modern kitchen. The enormous balcony/pergola & the manicured lawn area of the inground-pool with sun-lounges, both overlook the beautiful waters of Trou aux Biches. Everything is well maintained & clean. The situation is perfect if you wish to eat out as there are several restaurants & cafes with delicious fresh foods within 5 minutes walk. If you prefer to self-cater, as we did on a couple of occassions there is a small but well-stocked supermarket just a 10 minute walk away. We considered hiring a car but found the local bus service convenient (a 5 minute walk to the bus stop), cheap as chips & entertaining as well as a great way to see the local areas & mix with the very friendly, happy locals. Glenn & his wife Ann were willing & able to help arrange airport transfers for us; the housekeeper, Gabrielle, was delightful & also very helpful as she organised a driver & car to ferry us around one day to some of the more remote sights. Fabulous service! All in all, this 2nd honeymoon exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.

“Magnificent setting for break!”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fantastic holiday experiences normally starts from a helpful and friendly first point of contact when making or confirming your arrangements and lasts throughout the period until you leave your accommodation. - this was our experience. Bookings were made easy, Owners were responsive and helpful, friendly meet & greet, to very friendly housekeeping who came across more like friends you've always known, and the friendly advice given when you're there.

Amazing setting
Being right on the beach, we experienced the best of sunrise and sunset on a tropical paradise beach setting. With BBQ dinners on the top floor with the extra large patio every evening with loved ones, sitting in the fresh air and light breeze, viewing the gradual change in lighting effects on the ocean surface and in the sky felt nothing short of a life blessing.

Convenient Location
- Supermarket with everything we needed just down the road, a number of shopping centers within 10 minutes drive drive away,
- Restaurants within walking distance,
- Recreation - pool downstairs, well maintained green lawn and trees for our son to run around on, sandy beach to play on and which leads to rocky areas for seaside exploration, and swimming coves all within 30 meter radius

Warm welcoming accommodation at first sight.
- Had all the comforts of home, easy going casual environment to relax into
- Great, great kitchen...modern easy to use equipment with everything we needed and more

A perfect stress free family holiday. Highly recommended for couples and small family with 1 young child (we had stayed in the 1 bed penthouse).
