The food was lovely and it was a very relaxing place for lunch! Outdoor seating with a little shop to look at while waiting. A great place to take kids or with friends. Simple menu and the inside of the building is lovely!

We spent one Sunday at Vanilla House in two well equipped rooms with an interconnecting door between them - perfect for families who want to be together. Located within a quiet lush garden, Vanilla House also has a restaurant open on weekdays only. We fortunately were only minutes away from Tamarin and Flic en Flac so getting food was not... More

Vanilla House is a travelers dream, the beds are comfortable, the rooms well appointed the staff relaxed and helpful. Great Showers are to be had. The facility is nestled at the start of the national forest and great restaurants are within walking distance when you are not eating at the local Vanilla Bean. It has a pool which is not... More

We stayed for two nights around Christmas time. I like the decor in the room. It's like a little studio - with a small kitchenette. Breakfast was served in the courtyard. They gave us little Christmas ginger man on Christmas day. I love their homemade granola! As others have mentioned - lots of frogs, chickens and birds. but we were... More

We stayed at Vanilla House for one night. We were 4 couples and had a self catered BBQ for dinner. The outdoors kitchen and BBQ area is well equipped and the bonfire corner is a must, especially if you are in groups. The rooms are quite big with a little kitchenette and shower room attached. Fellanie is very helpful and... More

Vanilla House is a nice concept with a limited number of rooms. The small garden between the rooms is nice with all the birds which come all day long. However, not much entertainment or activities proposed. On weekends, the staff are virtually non existent, but still, when you get to see them, they are friendly. The pool is nicely located,...

This was a nice place to stay, away from the heat and bustle of Tamarin and Rivière Noire and within a 20-minute drive to Le Morne. The rooms have a microwave, fridge and sink and are well-designed. Breakfast is served outside, in the company of friendly chickens! to the delight of the children. Vanilla house is next to, but not... More

Of all the places we have been on our trip (Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Madegascar, Mauritius), this place is the hardest to review. I want to give it a good rating but just can't because of a couple of major issues. But let's start with what was good: The rooms are really well designed - modern, comfortable, and very well thought... More
