“Rusty Pelican is a”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The Rusty Pelican in La Gaulette is a beautiful and excellent choice for couples, groups or singles wanting to gain the real flavor of Mauritius. The Inn is run by Corrina. Corrina's personality and long residence in Mauritius gives travelers a real perspective on island life. As an adventure sportswoman she knows the best spots on the island not only for physical activity but for beautiful vistas and experiences. Her hospitality is amazing and she makes you one of the family. You cannot go wrong spending your holiday at Corrina's. The Rusty Pelican has all the necessities for a fine holiday as well as the atmosphere of relaxed life. You will learn that everyone in the village and area knows Corrina and this and of itself is a testament to her hospitality and demeanor. I will be back for sure :)

The Rusty Pelican is such a beautiful place to stay, with a special energy and plenty of space. Corinna, the owner is an amazing, kind and caring host and lady and I know everyone who stays here will not want to leave this magical, tranquil place.
One of my favorite places I've stayed on my travels, and knowing that Corrina donates a percentage of her profits and much of her time to animal and child welfare here in Mauritius makes it all the more special.

We were checked in at some other accomodation.....absolutely horrible.The guys from the kiting school told us to check out The Rusty Pelican....a relatively new guesthouse.Best thing we did was move immediately.The apartments are wonderful,lots of space,a pool....just as it is on the internet....maybe even better in real.Only thing is you must have a car...Corinna, the owner has one but it must be reserved early as it is one for 4 apartments.Maybe the only complaint (not The Rusty's fault) the dogs barking at the full moon!There is a very good resto down the road ...The Sirokan and the guy gives discount for all Pelicans!Enjoy the wonderful beaches that are Mauritius.

Room Tip: Downstairs apartments have a garden and upstairs have the views!

Spacious and tasteful appartments in La Gaulette with pool and a very friendly owner. We stayed longer in the South because of Corinna and her lovely place. Rent a car and explore the island or just hang out at the wonderful beaches of Le Mourne or in the laid back places of this tranquille surfer town.
We are already looking forward to come back...

There was nothing rusty about your spacious new apartments Corinna. We loved the vibe of kitesurfers and locals in the village, and being able to return to relax in the pool and tranquil garden at the end of a day exploring all the intersting sites you recommended. We only realised how important your airport pickup and your car rental are, once we got there. One of the highlights was paddling your canoes out to the island and the barbeque. Thanks for all the personalised attention in your unique set-up.

Room Tip: The two upstairs apartments with shared kitchen are great if you are travelling with friends....have...

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 .

Room Tip: We were in a group and had 2 adjoining suites , social and private .
