“location, facilities, charm, relax.”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Excellent Villa, close to the beach but protected from the elements when weather not so good. Pool is great for the kids and the villa is fully secure so you can always keep an eye on them. plenty of space to relax and eat, and have a very enjoyable time.

“Amazingly Special!!!!!”

This is a very special Gem in Mauritius. Our family of 5 absolutely love this villa and return yearly. It is always a highlight as the villa is centrally located to the best beach on the island. The owners are very kind and nothing is too much for them to do to make your stay a memorable experience. All areas are excellent equipped and top notch. Excellent linen and good quality beds. Wonderful changes are noticeable annually and this shows the owners personal touch and interest in their business. This villa is surely our second home!!

“EXCELLENT !”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We, a family with two children (13 and 14 years old), greatly appreciated the very warm welcome and the high professionalism of the house owners and their attendance over the whole stay: warmth, precise explanations, daily attention (fresh flowers, aroma diffuser switched on when coming back from a long day trip, suggestions for activities etc.) but at the same time discretion, just perfect.
The house, very tastefully furnished, everything of high quality, was spotless clean. The neat garden, with rich flora (labelled with the names of the plants on pebbles), was very well maintained.
The rooms are generous and very nice, the kitchen perfectly equipped with all of what you may think of, the balconies and verandas more than comfortable, the furnishings as well as the pool maintained at new. My favorite place was the lounge outside the TV room, just a dream !
The beautiful sea is only a stone’s throw away. The house is ideally located for visiting the greenest and, according to our taste, the most beautiful part of the island. There is a lot to visit, a GPS not mandatory but quite helpful.
We would like to thank Diane & Christophe Desmarais for having rendered our stay one of the most pleasant we ever had. Also many thanks to the household lady (quick and kempt), the lady in the kitchen (who prepares you delicious meals; if you like it hot don’t hesitate to ask for more spices) and the gardener. The overall excellent service was worth that one of the best hotels and contributed largely to these unforgettable vacation.

“Best Holliday ever!!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a great stay and a brilliant vacation, we did not want to go home. Our hosts stayed next door and they were very helpful with suggestions on where to go and how to spend our days. We had a great day on the catamaran and we were able to enjoy the hotels facilities as well. I would go back tomorrow - loved the accommodation, our hosts, the people and the country. We had an excellent time and would recommend to anybody, BUT be very careful you might just loose your heart.
