Our contact for the reservation by e-mail already gave us a good feeling.
Due to technical problems we had a flightdelay from 10 hours, and could not warn the transfer to come later. So we missed our transfer, but after contacting the bungalow, the driver was sent again to pick us up. What a relief after 33 hrs of travelling.
To our surprise the fridge was stuffed with water, juice, milk and fruit, just in case we would arrive too late to go out for dinner.
We were there in beginning of June, at that time there were 3 appartments for rent, apparently the fourth is now almost ready. We stayed in Saffran, which is very spacious, clean and has a very pleasant feeling. The fresh flowers in the livingroom and the shower alse gave us a warm welcome feeling.
The appartment has everything we needed, including AC, a fan, a safe and access to a little pool.
The owners are very friendly and can arrange some excursions for you.
Although in fact it is handy to have your own car, we managed OK without one.
Within walking distance you have at least three restaurants, plus one of the best stocked supermarkets we have seen on the island. The supermarket also has a take-away outlet plus an ATM.
Busconnections with Quatre Bornes and Port Louis are OK.
If you are looking for a small accommodation, in a not too touristy vicinity, this is a place I can recommend.
