“The only place to stay when visiting Mauritius”

If you want to experience Mauritius for what it really is this is the place to stay! We received a warm welcome and it felt like home from the first day.

Brigitte and James are the best hosts that you can hope for, attending to your needs and give you good advice on everything to make your visit as good as possible.

After staying with them for two months it was very hard to leave and when I go back I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

“Real Mauritius”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Firstly Mauritius is a great place to visit. By all mean make use of the hotels – they offer great hotel holidays.

The best thing about Mauritius is the people; their mind-sets, their way of life. The best way to see beyond the hotel holiday is James and Brigitte.

Read the other review and take time to look at the pictures - they offer quality accommodation – there is no question about the quality.

My number one tip for "new family" is to ask James and Brigitte, and then FOLLOW the advice.

I have stayed there several times and it always takes the new comers a few days to listen and learn – they have beyond expert knowledge of the local environment.

With regards to Golf – if you are planning to visit Mauritius for Golf in addition to the sea; then your only option is James and Brigitte. To repeat.. your only option is James and Brigitte.

Brigitte is very good on e-mail and she takes care of all those pre-travel question and issues you may have or need clarity on.

Do I have to mention that they happen to be lovely people as well??

“It doesn't get any better than this”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The wonderful warm welcome I received continued for the whole of my month's stay. James and Brigitte are the most perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and your every need catered for. I was introduced to local people and given good advise regarding best beaches, local shops, bars and best places to eat. Everything you need to know to get you quickly into the holiday mood and relaxed. They will also help you to arrange diving expeditions, days out fishing or on a catermaran; and if your hobby is golf, you won't find anyone better than Brigitte and James to introduce you to the most spectacular courses on the island.

Trou aux Biches is in the north of the island which is where you will get the best weather. Almost continual sunshine and just enough showers to make the countryside beautiful.

Villa Ayr is situated in an enclosed garden and therefore extremely safe.
The apartments are superb. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and really comfortable beds. The apartment I stayed in on the first floor has an outside seating and dining area with a BBQ and is the most wonderful place to sit in the morning sunshine with your first cup of coffee and enjoy a relaxed breakfast.

The apartments are across the road from the sea, but this doesn't detract from its location. It's a lovely 10 minute stroll along the coast to a picture postcard beach where there are sun loungers and parasols to rent, beach bars, small shops and cafés. There is a bus stop immediately outside the door where the buses run every 15 minutes along the coast road and you can travel into Grand Baie if you want something more lively or into the capital, Port Louis.

My holiday was a complete joy due to the care and kindness of my wonderful hosts. So a huge thank you to James and Brigitte for including me in all your activities from meals out to an invitation to join the celebration of a Hindu wedding!

Can't wait for the next time

“Home away from home!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful weeks in Villa Ayr. It's perfectly located in Trou aux Biches in the North of Mauritius. Some of the most beautiful beaches of the island are close by. Villa Ayr is everything you could wish for. A driver organized by Villa Ayr picked us up at the airport which was very convenient. The apartments are very modern and clean - equipped with every necessary detail. The owners Brigitte and James are wonderful people and very very helpful. They showed us the best (local) restaurants and gave us advice on diving and excursions. Thanks to them we got to see and do things we would have otherwise missed.
We can wholehearted recommend Villa Ayr. It's a real gem!!!

Reviewed April 21, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Cosy and familiar atmosphere in well-kept, luxurious apartments. Beautiful beach and everything you need was in walking distance. Brigitte and James were excellent hosts and nothing left to be desired. A 5 star location!
