First we would like to say thank you to Angela for our lovely stay in Tamarin Mauritius. We arrived early after a long flight from the UK and received a lovely welcome from Angela and Lucky (the dog). River House is in a gorgeous setting with amazing views of the mountain and the river and only a two minute stroll... More

First off all, thank you Angela for an amazing stay. After a little search, because we got directions for coming out off the North, and we came out the South, we got a warm welcome from Angela, who made us feel immediately at home. We had the standard room, which is in the house, and we loved it. Beautiful woods... More

In October 2013 we stayed for several nights in this charming B&B. Our room, one of the "spacious double bedrooms", was indeed spacious, very clean and comfortable. Located at the riverbanks, we could enjoy the wonderful setting from our private veranda. Moreover, the rich breakfast, the friendly hostess as well as her courteous staff are quite remarkable. The River House... More

We stayed at the River House at the end of September 2013 and it was just wonderful. The rooms were gorgeous, spacious and verrrrrrry clean. Lovely attention to detail with a fresh flower placed by the bathroom sink daily! With a hammock and verandah to watch the river go by, and a 3 minute walk down a sandy lane to... More

My husband and I stayed at the river house for over a week during our honeymoon in Mauritius. We decided to stay at a B&B for the middle part of our holiday with a stay at the Luxe Grande Gaube at the beginning and a few nights at The Oberoi at the end. The River House is in a beautifully... More

We went there for my mum's birthday. The location is quite difficult to find. Angela,the owner promised to send us directions which she never did, although she was quite helpful when we called her on the way there. She welcomed us warmly and made arrangements to accommodate our needs- we had a 6 months old baby with us. We stayed... More

The stay in The River House was definetely the hightlight of our trip to Mauritius. The guesthouse is so beautifully located on the calm river banks and at the same time just minutes walk from the beach, it's amazing that such corners exist somewhere in the world! We were very satisfied with the room - spacious, well equiped and decorated... More

A totally different kind of holiday experience. 5 star service, 5 star accomodation, 45 minutes drive from the airport. Very comfortable environment, felt like having the whole place to ourselves. The BEST thing about this entire place is probably the owner herself, Angela. Such a wonderful lady. Extremely helpful. Just send her an email on your needs and she will... More

Such a special place, felt like our secret getaway. At the end of a private road, the river house looks over a small river lagoon, with jumping fish, swooping herons and lots of other wildlife. Three minutes walk down a lovely track is a virtually private beach, with proper waves (nice change from the lagoon -- tho lagoon beaches are... More
