We went here to start our vacation on Reunion island. We stayed here for 4 days in june 2013. It was very calm and quiet on the location, not many other tourists around. Which was handy, because we basically had the whole property for ourselves! :)
The owners, Nathalie and Yves, are very lovely. A Belgian couple, speaking both French and a bit of Dutch. That was very handy, because most people on Reunion island only speak French!
We got a ground floor room, with a bed, fridge, closets, tv, aircon and bathroom. Basic but sufficient. Although we found the room to be a bit tiny. But everything was clean and worked fine, which is most important.
There is no breakfast served, but the local bakery and supermarket are nearby. You can walk there, or lend a bicycle (which is available for free). The communal kitchen is well equipped with your basic needs for preparing your breakfast/lunch/dinner. There is even a charcoal bbq to use.
In the public area around the kitchen and garden, there is free wifi. We did not get proper wifi reception in the room, but that didnt bother us.
The location of Le Vacoa is excellent. It is in a residential area, close to the sea (few hundred meters, nice walk). And the towns of St Gilles, St Paul or St Leu are nearby: only a few minutes drive with a car.
If we ever come to Reunion island again, we will definitely return here, and enjoy the calm laidback hospitality of this truly magnificent place!
