“Marvelous Mauritius!”

Villa Vakoa is a perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday near one of the nicest beaches in Mauritius. The property is very spacious. The lush garden and the big terrace provide shady places to sit, eat and drink. The hosts, Diane and Christophe are obliging and always helpful. Special thanks to Priscilla, the hardworking maid.
Our plan is to come back soon.

“Perfect holiday experience”

We enjoyed an unforgettable Christmas at Villa Vakoa - 10 days of relaxation in the stunning location near the most beautiful (and crowd-free) beaches on Mauritius. We felt like we were in our own private paradise.
All our needs were met and expectations exceeded by the charming and hospitable Christophe and Diane - the perfect hosts, on hand to answer questions or give recommendations when needed but sensitive to our need for complete relaxation! Such a warm and friendly welcome - thanks to you both. (We loved the Christmas tree!!)
The Villa itself is very comfortable - beautiful pool and lush gardens, spacious air-conditioned bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchen, lots of living areas although we practically lived on the shady terraces overlooking the pool. Daily cleaning service was friendly and unobtrusive.
A warm, relaxing, carefree holiday in an idyllic location. I highly recommend Villa Vakoa.

“Perfect stay, perfect location”
Reviewed December 19, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent a long weekend in Villa Vakoa. The house was very clean, comfortable and the Kitchen fully equipped. The large veranda was perfect for our meals. The garden is amazing and perfect for let the kids playing. The hosting family is always available for any request and advise. We really felt at home. The location is also perfect. It's just few steps from one of the best sandy beach of the island. The beach is never crowded and from there we rented boats to discover the lovely surrounding. We hope to spend other days in villa Vakoa in the future.
Really thank you to Diane and his husband for the very good service.

“A perfect base for a great vacation”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My family and I, including our 2 children (ages 3 and 6) stayed at Villa Vakoa in April for 10 days. It was truly a wonderful villa and an absolutely lovely trip.

The villa itself is superb, with 3 bedrooms upstairs, each with air conditioning. There is a fourth room on the main level that has a pull-out couch, and that room also has A/C. The living room, dining room, kitchen area is large, and it all opens out to a nice patio and a private pool, all in a private, fenced in area.

The management was great. Diane was helpful and was always available to give us advice or to help us with anything needed. Her husband manages the Preskil down the street and was equally helpful. They helped us to arrange for a rental car and also for a cook to cook our meals for us during our stay, which was affordable and delicious. The villa has a nice coffee-maker for all sorts of coffee drinks.

The location is just a 2-3 minute walk to the beach, is close to Preskil, and is also a nice base for exploring the island. The nearby beach is excellent and relatively quiet. You can arrange boat tours from there as well, which I would highly recommend, and you can also arrange diving, snorkeling, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, and more.

We loved our trip, loved the villa, and were incredibly grateful for out kind and generous hosts. Before we had even left, we were planning our return, and we cannot wait to go back!

“Perfect”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely time Villa Vakoa. It is very comfortable, with everything you need. There is lots of communal space, and the bedrooms are also very spacious. It is a very short walk to the beach and the beach is beautiful, with very other beach visitors. It is close to the hotel, which is great. It is also a 2 minute drive to the shopping centre where you can buy anything you need for your meals. There is a water filter provided and even a weber.
The pool area is a great place to entertain and generally just relax.
There is no DSTV, which is not a bad thing, it means we got to play lots of boardgames and cards on the one rainy afternoon! (Although there is a TV and DVD player)
The hosts are also very gracious.
