I was picked up for a viewing of this place, and I decided not to stay based on:

- dirty walls (and generally everything that is not well shown in the pictures)
- extremely dim lighting giving a jail-type feeling even in the day time
- extremely rude staff.
- construction equipment in the garden indicating possibly high levels of noise
- general mess around the garden as if someone had just dumped all their belongings
- the area (it is close to the beach but it is in a zone with tons of poorly maintained buildings)

After the viewing I was pressured into saying whether I wanted to stay or not, which I was not ready to decide. The person who claims to be the owner (the black dude in the orange stinky van) was aggravated because I would not tell him on the spot whether I wanted the place or not. Feeling that picking me up 500 meters away was only justified if he got an answer right away (though no such condition had been made explicit) he proceeded to tell me multiple times to "speak, since I have a mouth".

My advice is:

1. If you are looking for a pleasant time in Mauritius stay in a resort. There are hundreds if not thousands of poorly maintained buildings, and they can appear pretty nice from the pictures, but they are to be compared with a thai guesthouse of about 400 baht a night, not the resort-type accommodation they appear to be from the pictures. Most 'affordable' (under 1500 EUR/month) places I've seen are similar to what they appear like on the pics but what is not mentioned is that the area was built 15 years ago and nearly no money has been spent on renovations since then. Expect old everything, mold, old mattresses, wrong size bed sheets, etc etc. - Airbnb people, you've been warned.

2. Flic and flac is not the place to stay for single travellers. The place is deserted at night, be prepared to go to bed at 6pm. Shotz and similar bars in the area are a joke, the area is complete ghetto and feels far less safe than bangkok. No tourists/white people at all. Mauritians are mostly very friendly but the poverty is very real and tangible. Most apartments have security 24h, barbed wire, alarm systems etc. - even leaving your helmet on your bike is not smart around here, multiple people said so. The roads are not safe to drive at night due to poor illumination and very careless drivers (scooters are particularly NOT recommended for getting around unless it's just a couple hundred meters away). The flic en flac beach is also much less nice than grand baie and other spots. It may look fantastic from a drone, but most of it (outside the resorts) is "just nice" (not superlative, not a reason to sit 14 hours in an airplane).

Best advice for Mauritius:

- don't come alone, there is no night life here and no hotties whatsoever (other than that the bars are a ghetto sausage fest)
- honeymoon is fine but spend on a real resort or pick a place closer to home
- if you want to just shoot photos and be an adventure traveler then stay wherever, I guess you won't mind

Internet speed measured at different properties is always 1Mbps (bit not byte) in download and 0.3 in upload. It's more usable than I thought though.

I've tried to be as fair as possible. Hope this will be of use to someone.

We stayed 2 nights at VS Villa after first arriving in Mauritius, good location being close to the beach but not much else to see and do around Flic En Flac. Unfortunately when we stayed the pool was out of action. VS Villa would be suited to a family who were staying for a week or longer.

Overall, a good place but nothing exceptional.

I stayed here with my wife recently having booked through Air BnB, I dint know what to expect as photos can be deceiving especially when you consider that the price is very reasonable for what you get. I've stayed in Mauritius before and got a lot less for twice the price.

We arrived late on a Saturday night but I had kept the owner up to date with our ETA and he was here waiting for us, gave us a quick tour and left us to relax.

We stayed in a villa overlooking the pool and it almost had all we needed, balcony, two full double bedrooms (we could have guests at no extra charge), a lounge with TV and dvd player, Kitchen, dining area (for 6) and bathroom. Great space for the money. The only missing thing from our point of view was a kettle, had to use a pan or microwave, but no real problem, everything else was there.

Don't get me wrong, this place is not the Ritz, so don't expect 5 star luxury, but if you keep things in perspective for what you pay you get a real good bargain. The owner, Vega, seemed friendly, only saw him once for the keys, he struggles with English but he's a nice bloke. Sheila (I assume his wife) I only dealt with on the phone and txts but again a very pleasant lady. The cleaning lady was around most days, she cleans the empty rooms and grounds etc, you don't get daily bed or towel changes as standard but she would if you asked her, very pleasant and friendly lady.

Flic en Flac is only a small place but there is a beach less than five minutes walk from the apartment and probably 15 mins walk to main shopping points.

We only really used the place as a base to go out from so didn't use the pool or other facilities but they all look inviting. I don't believe in travelling so far to stay cooped up in a villa even if it does have a pool etc.

Vs Villas is in a very good location- just a mere 5mins walk to the beach and shops and restaurants.

Not too far a drive from the airport as well.

when we got there we were delighted to see the lovely pool area and sun loungers.

rooms were clean with necessary amenities.

Would definitely go back again as very affordable and cheerful.

Booking process was efficient and simple.
I booked a two bedroom villa from 2nd April to 11th april.
Everything ran smoothly form booking the villa to checking in and staying there. The villa is in a very good location - short walkin distance to shops bars restaurants as well as flic en flac beach.

Rooms were clean with all amenities. Lovely swimming pool and sitting area outside.

Has a lovely week and cannot wait to go back
Thank you for the hospitality VS Viila
