“Great large house directly onto quiet beach”
Reviewed 27 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

As a group of 7 - three couples and a child, we found this house fantastic as offering spacious accommodation - with four bedrooms, and open plan living accommodation and fantastic decking and patio areas, plus of course direct access onto what felt at most times your own private beach.

The bedroom accommodation was split to a main bedroom suite to the front of the house, and three bedrooms (one a large suite with third child bed), a double room and a room with three beds in it - both sharing a bathroom. The bedroom to the front of the house receives the sea breeze, and the rear bedroom were much warmer and required the use of a fan.

It was the prefect start to our stay in Mauritius, and we loved the time on the beach - exploring the nearby rock pools as well and traveling from there to Blue Bay marine park, Flacq market and even across to Curepipe for the day.

As a group of very different travelers, needs were slightly different and though large and comfortable, some found the accommodation and service possibly a bit too rustic - there were no details on the house, for the TV, internet (which we still couldn't find), no oven, no aircon, broken washing machine, no BBQ for first half of stay and the showers had no curtain or doors making it impossible not to wet the floor - which became very dangerous. Another negative if this concerns you would be the coral on the beach - which for some necesitated wearing canvas or beach shoes to swim, and also seaweed tended to come in with the tides.

The east side of the island is much quieter, so if it is total relaxation you are after, in a well appointed large home with great entertainment space - this is a perfect choice. Though private, and onto a peaceful beach, fishermen and the like still stopped by to offer services and the maid Devika managed to source boats and tours and do washing as needed.

Thank you for your review.
2 new A/C have been added.
Corels and Seaweed come and go with the season...all around the Island.. The beach usually is of white and fine sand.
We will see that there is more explanation about the house in the future, thanks.
