“Stunning Place, Nice Location, Friendly Owners”

The location is perfect - quiet, beachfront with stunning views for miles over the Le Morne. The apartment is modern and spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Comfy beds, nice linen and lovely bathrooms plus plenty of options on where to sit etc. The pool is good and the garden gets a good mix of sun and shade through the day which is ideal. It's only a 100m walk to a choice of decent restaurants so while we had a car throughout our stay so we could see everything you could get away without one as taxis are cheap etc. We too walked the the bay hotel which is a lovely place and serves good food, via the road in front of the villa (very quiet residential street) which takes 10 mins as is quite a nice walk and feels very safe. Agnes and Ken go above and beyond the call of duty in helping and being there for any question or query during your stay. Lovely people too. They waved us off at 430am when we left which illustrates the way they look after you! In all I'd recommend very highly.

Thank you to Agnes and Ken for being very friendly and welcoming hosts for our wonderful stay in a clean, family-friendly and secure environment. This fully contained apartment is close to the beach, in a quiet part of Black River, Mauritius. Has everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. Agnes and Ken are extremely helpful and knowledgeable with advice on places to visit and instructions on how to get there. It is close to restaurants and supermarket, banks etc. A wonderful experience with house cleaning every day.

My family and I had a fantastic time during our stay here!
The apartment is so beautiful - spacious, comfortable and relaxing with a great pool and awesome beachfront location. We enjoyed some amazing sunsets from the property. Close proximity to supermarkets, shops and a nice italian restaurant.
Agnes, the owner was wonderful; making us feel so welcomed, giving us great advice and helping in any way she could. We felt like part of the family.
We did not want to leave.

“THE BEST VACATION EVER,EVER...WE CAME BACK FOR SHORE”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

This a direct report from Olana Beachfront Apartment...its our last day in Paradise.So we are sitting on the veranda,looking over the beutifull pool and garden to the beach,sea and bay.From the first day that Ken pick us at the airport till today...its like a dream.
When we read all the reports of the guests before us...we decided at once.And it was worth it.
The hospitality from Agnes and Ken...all their advices and informations help us to find Mauritius in the most colorfull and different prospections.They were allways there when we need help...but always with biiiiiig smile on their faces.Its like if you come to vacations to some good friends.
The Olana Apartment is very beatifull and equiped with all you ever need....just like to be in our own house.I will not spend more words about the house ,because there is every detail puted in with love and soul....like that somebody build it for themself.And it was really like that.
At the first day I forget the shut the lights off on the La Morne beach...so our battery died.We couldnt start the car....but we managed to came home with some Slovenian couple which was also there at the time.We call Ken˛&Agnes and they come in the middle of the night to help us with the car....we drive there and start it with the cables.....and they were just smiling.On the way back I was stopped by the police patrol...without driving licence....so again Ken ˛&Agnes drive back to Olana House to pick my licence and came back....again with a biiiig smile.
THANK YOU BOTH SO MUCH FOR ALL.
I have to stop writing now because we are still here in that Paradise...last day in Paradise.
So we have to go to the beach...
We are happy to be here and we were BE BACK FOR SHORE.
We could write more and more...but we dont have time and words to describe....just THE BEST....1000%

We were an extended group with 2 under 1 years and 1 over 81 in our number. The apartment was beautifully appointed and a very comfortable base. Agnes and Ken were extremely helpful -getting s an extra cot and high chair as we have twins - and generally do all they could to ensure we had a great holiday.

Liked best: The view was lovely and having a daily maid made it a real break for me
Liked least: leaving! Not really a negative but with an un-fenced pool you had to be very vigilant with the kids
