“Not only Happy Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

We had the pleasure to stay at this lovely place together with our 2 year old son, who is still babbling about the owner Jean-Pierre and his family;). From original booked 5 days we extended our stay to 14 days since we were treated like friends. The guesthouse itself is very stylisch furnished, clean and most of the rooms with an incredible view down to the bay. Binay managed the housekeeping and supported us in every situation. We discovered the whole island but we found no compareable accomodation in that price range. The best place to be with lots of beautiful beaches within 10 min car drive along with perfect sunset. Thank's again to the Happy Days Crew, the Sinn's

Happy Days guest House is a rare find! Seldom do you find a place that actually lives up to the hype or the reality of being a very reasonably priced extremely well kitted out relaxed guest house. Jean-Pierre was very welcoming and made every effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible, with outstanding local knowledge and some great stories he really makes you feel as if Happy Days is your home. The rooms are spacious and there are plenty of places to wash off and dry kit covered in sand and salt. Unfortunately i didn't get one of the "sunset" rooms this time however the view from the deck is simply spectacular I will definitely be going back.

A group of 7 of us went out to Mauritius early September to kitesurf in paradise. We were met by Jean-Pierre (JP the owner) at the airport who gave us a proper welcome to the island and arranged transfers back to the guest house for us and all our kit and even managed to pick us up a few bottles of rum on the way home. The quality of the guest house is very good, the rooms are all ensuite and have great showers which is key after a day on the water. The view from the balcony is amazing and watching the sun set never gets old, see the picture uploaded. Jean-Pierre made every effort to make our stay amazing, whether sourcing us cars or sorting out trips to go on. I would definitely stay in the guest house again as it is great value for money and Jean-Pierre made our trip so special.

This was my first stay at Jean-Pierre's Happy Days Guest House in La Gaulette... a generously roomy house with a cool and relaxed vibe that and water or land lover would enjoy.
Surfer, Wind surfers and Kiters can chill by the pool and recap their stories of the day. With a large open planned kitchen and dining, Happy days is perfect for someone travelling solo (like I did), couples or large groups wanting to share the experience together in a chilled out place. Located on top of the hill in La Gaulette, Happy Days Guest house has privacy as well as a fantastic view of the sun setting over Le Morne... Super affordable, stylish and chic... Jean-Pierre and the girls will ensure that what ever you need is only a question away!

We stayed at Happy Days Guest House for 14 days, and would recommend the place to anyone that wants to be free to explore the island while having a great place to come back and rest.

The location is great, supermarket, restaurants and the center of La Gaullette are at the walking distance. A beautiful public beach as well as the main surf location at Le Morne are 5 minutes by car - some also walk the distance. The south west, where the village La Gaulette is, is probably the best location if you want to explore the island - close by you have many natural as well as tourist attractions. Regardless of that, the guest house is in a extremely quite area with an exceptional view on the La Morne hill, sea and the nearby small island.

The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated with very nice bathrooms. They are kept nicely clean by friendly staff, and the manager of the guest house (Jean Pierre) is always there to help with whatever questions you might have or to suggest what to see, where to go or eat on Mauritius. All this for an extremely affordable price.

Definitely recommended if you are looking for a beautiful accommodation at reasonable price in the south-west of Mauritius.

A great location near Le Morne, which is close to kite surfing, diving, swimming, SUP padding, national parks, etc without the confinement of being sheltered in an expensive 5 star resort complex. A great place to meet like minded travellers and quite a few of the local residents through the owner Jean Pierre, who is a fantastic host and passionate about showing guests the real Mauritius.
Everything can be arranged once you arrive, from care hire to booking tours or sporting lessons - kite surfing lessons in my case :) Supermarket, restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance.
Already planning a trip to visit again next year, after just having returned from a 2 week stay in June 2013.

I have just returned from a 5 night stay at Happy Days Guest House and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The rooms and en-suite bathrooms are very large and furnished very stylishly. The Guest House is exceptionally clean and airy and you can arrange to have airport transfers through the owner - Jean-Pierre, who also extends a lovely warm welcome to everyone. He is a veritable hive of information with regard to any information you may need to enhance your holiday and nothing is too much trouble. The kitchen is fully equipped for guests to make their own breakfast in the morning.

It's a great introduction to Mauritius!
