A piece of paradise . The manageress was exceptionally helpful , advising us on local ; non touristy places to visit . Found places off the tourist trail , and very helpful on places to see when they are not busy . Local bus ride is a must , as is the market in Port Louis .
Privacy and lots of space , did not feel like a b&b , more like your own cottage ! Superb . And the pool at end of the day is a pleasure . She also did a mauritian bbq , very good .
Down side - that you are not directly on the beach , but then we would have paid much much more and been in a hotel - no thanks !
Its also great to get up when you want and not wait for a breakfast , as we had our own private kitchenette .
