We stayed 3 nights in Mon Choix two weeks ago and to be honest this place is very Special. The poeple, Jean-Michel and his wife Joan were absolutely helpful in any way. We stayed in the biggest room with two terrace and an incredible view over Port-Louis. For the ones of you that don't need bars or nighlife and want... More

My wife and I stayed at Mon Choix for four nights in the middle of our 12 day visit to Mauritius. We chose it because it was different and looked peaceful but we were not really expecting much since it advertises as little more than a modest Eco B&B... a far cry from the luxury resorts around the coast. But... More

Having read the reviews and wanting a stay away from the beach resorts we could not have chosen a better B&B. The location in the hills looking out over Port Louis is spectacular but what makes this property really special is the hosts. Both Jean-Michel and Joan truly want their guests to enjoy both Mon Choix and Mauritius so are... More

This is an excellent, secluded and out of the city for a peaceful stay. We stayed there for 3 nights and was charmed by the friendliness of Joan and Jean Michel which made our stay very comfortable. Having your breakfast overlooking the city is breathtaking. You are surrounded by the mountains looking over the valley is just beyond belief.You have... More

I've tried to book this property for four nights, provided BedyCasa with my credit card and that was it! No replies. I've needed to depart from Chicago and did not know whether I have a place to stay and whether my credit card was charged. This is not a way too run an honest business. I've got a suspense instead...

I was here for a week to do some research on the island and could not have asked for a better stay. The house is truly beautiful and the hosts are generous, knowledgeable, resourceful and kind. You stay in utter tranquility and wake to breakfast on the terrace looking down to the sea, surrounded by birdsong...and of course enjoying good... More

If you are going to Mauritius just to lie on the beach this is not the place for you. But if you want to immerse yourself in a spectacular setting, with some of the island's most recognised mountain peaks dotted around you, then look no further. Jean-Michel and Joan have carefully selected this site with intimate knowledge of the island... More

I was here for 3 weeks, to do some work in Port Louis, and it was a wonderful place to be based. I just didn't get bored of the wonderful view down the valley from my room, and it was easy to get in and out of Port Louis by bus, so staying here was further from where I was... More

What can I say but to echo the previous reviewers comments. High, high in the valley lies the rust red Mon Choix, visible for miles around, and actually featured in a Mauritian photo album I was given as a present by my work colleagues, but I digress, from the excellent breakfast to the wonderful dogs, not to mention mine host...

Hidden away on the slopes of a mountain, this is the perfect counter therapy to a days work in the busy city of Port Louis. The hosts Joan and Jean-Michel really do look after their guests making a stay in Mauritius into a very special experience. The rooms are beautiful as is the large home and terraces. The views are...
