Thank you Glenn for a fantastic stay. Beautiful new apartment, big veranda, roll out of bed and onto the beach, quick walk to Chez Popo supermarket and restuarants, super pool area which was well used even if the pool temperature was 30degrees :), 15 minutes to Grand Bay. A great spot and could not fault a thing. Would recommend without any hesitation. Gail Bradfield

“The most amazing beachside experience”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed at the apartment for a 3 weeks over April / May 2014 and wow. Brand new and modern interior with all the comforts and amenities of a villa or resort without losing its true island touch. The service staff were friendly yet unobtrusive helping us daily with cleaning and giving us tips for the island, even an authentic chicken curry was prepared for us one evening, Truly an authentic experience. A larger than life balcony where we spent a great deal of our time relaxing if not snorkeling right outside our front door were two highlights.

The apartment is secure and neatly tucked within walking distance of the main beach. Walking past the various food stalls and buying tasty noodles and boulettes which you would not experience in the confines of a resort, a true Mauritian experience.

Highly recommended value for money and we look forward to our next visit

je vous remercie pour votre commentaire Agnès et Philippe. Comme vous l'avez dit c est un superbe appartement, rare de trouver cette qualité à Maurice à ce tarif en front de mer et donnant directement sur la plage. Même dans la plupart des hôtels qui font payer bien plus.
Vous avez mentionné, une Grande terrasse au deuxième étage d'environ 100m2 avec vue sur la mer à 180 degrés. équipements de qualité, cuisine bien équipée, bonne literie. Le personnel est bon et qualifié. Sans parler de la propriété qui est entretenue au quotidien toutefois il semble y avoir un malentendu de votre part sur votre location et votre compréhension de ce que vous avez loué
au sein de la villa nous avons 3 appartements a louer tous différents avec une gamme de prix differente egalement. vous avez réservé et payé pour le mini penthouse annoncé pour 2 personnes avec une seule chambre une salle de douche et cuisine equipee.
L'annonce n'a jamais fait mention de de deux lits et deux salles de bains! ceci est l appartement du 1er etage avec 2 chambres et 2 salles de bain mais pas au même tarif par jour.
J'ai contacté les locataires du deuxième étage qui etaient presents durant votre sejour pour vous rendre service avec des bouchons d'oreille car il y avait les croassements des crapauds apres une journee de pluie intense. l ile Maurice est une ile avec son ecosysteme et sa nature encore un peu sauvage je ne suis pas responsable de cela.
Cela est arrivé pour 1 nuit seulement, Ceci est la nature et reste un événement très rare.
En ce qui concerne les bus, il y a un peu de bruit pendant les périodes de pointe seulement. Cela est compréhensible on ne peut avoir un lieu proche des commodites mais coupé du monde Trou aux biches est une station qui se modernise et donc les transports en commun en font partie avec les locaux qui voyagent pour travailler, les bus sont vieux malheureusement. je trouve regrettable que votre commentaire incrimine l appartement au vu du fait que vous avez loué le mini penthouse qui n annonce en aucun cas 2 chambres et 2 salles de bain mais une douche et une chambre pour 2 avec vue sur mer.
Nous vous souhaitons un bon retour chez vous.

Thanking you for review Agnes and Philippe. As you said it’s a stunning apartment, rare to find this quality in Mauritius at this price and sea views. Directly on the beach. Even in most hotels which charge very much more.

You mentioned, Large terrace on the second floor of about 100m2 with a sea view at 150 degrees. Quality equipment, well-appointed kitchen, good bedding. Staff very good and highly trained. Not to mention very clean and well-maintained property.

BUT

There seems a misunderstanding from your side. We have 3 apartments which we advertise and range in price. You’ve seem to read one and booked the other.

The advertisement has and never did mention two beds and two bathrooms!

I contacted the tenants on the second floor to purchase the ear plugs for you as you mentioned to them the toads made a noise. I was there the week before and spent some quality time with the tenant’s on the first floor. That’s correct for 1 night only after heavy rains the toads do croak occasionally. This is nature and a very rare occurrence that they croak. But 1 night only normally.

Concerning the busses, there is some noise during peak times only. This is understandable in Mauritius it’s an island and not well developed as yet. But definitely not all-day long.

We do welcome you back in the future
