We spend 16 wonderful days at Mauricious at the Papaya House. The hospitality was excellent. Very warm and helpful owners. Discreet and at the same time there to help with any questions or requests. Cleaning service and breakfast everyday to excellent standard. Strongly recommended if you wish to enjoy the free touristic Mauricious life. Again thank you Philipe & Marie-Helene

On our previous 10 visits to Mauritius, we always stayed at one of the Beachcomber hotels and on one occasion at Club Med. As we managed to obtain very competitively priced tickets using our BA miles, we thought we would try staying in a guest house. I do not think there were many guest houses listed in Mauritius in past... More

We have been staying with Marie Helene and the team during first three weeks of November 2013. This B&B has 4 rooms and we had the room "Creole" on the ground floor. The room has its own terrace and sleeping room and bath room are excellent. We enjoyed the swimming pool (cristal clear and sald water) which is actually quite... More

We stayed 2 weeks at maison papaye and had an excellent time. Philippe is very helpful and is more than happy to answer you all your questions about mauritius and its attractions. We especially enjoyed the regular dinners with good company organized by philippe. Maison papaye is ideally located, a short walk away from the village la gaulette and a... More

We have stayed at this beautifull place for no less then 4 nights and had an awesome time. The french owner truely enjoys having people around and made our stay very memorable. Besides the wonderfull self made breakfast, clean rooms and generally beautifull surroundings this B&B can hook you up with some great local guides. Philip (owner) has gone to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights (minimum stay requirement by owner, Philipe) in July at the beginning of our journey around Mauritius. Whilst the B&B property is not on the beach it is only a short walk to it and also to quite a few local restaurant options for dinner. Breakfast is served on the terrace and dinner is on... More

We started our trip in Mauritius at Maison Papaye and booked sadly at the last minute so we couldn't stay more than three days. The hosts are really friendly and always keen to help you out on your excursions. Philippe and Marie-Helene both bent over backwards to make sure that we managed to do every thing we wanted to even... More

This is a very nice house with beautiful rooms. The ambiente is a little bit "french colonial" like. Very friendly owners a a very nice atmosphere makes this location a very good starting point for small trips to the surrounding area like La Morena or Chamarel. The missing last star is for the location ... because you the next beach... More

We booked with only 2 days notice and they happened to have a room available for us! We arrived at the B&B and we were greeted by one of the staff, whom was warm and friendly. We sat down on the porch and gave us a nice cold fruit drink on arrival! She then showed us our room which was... More

Your host Phillippe is thoughtful, kind and quite a character who works hard to make your stay memorable. We really appreciated a very clean and beautifully decorated colonial style house with good size rooms. We enjoyed the long and deep pool - big enough to have a good swim. The location is excellent whether you want to do sea-based activities... More
