We spent our most wonderful sixteen day holiday at Olana recently.
From the moment we arrived, Ken and Agnes made us feel welcomed. The villa was exactly as described and seen in the pictures. There was six of us and there was a lot of room so that we did not at any point feel crowded. Each room has its own ensuite and the kitchen was very spacious and very well equipped. The villa itself has a great outdoor space and a wonderful pool and the entire property is pristinely maintained. This made for a very comfortable stay, we actually got to relax and really enjoy our vacation. The villa is very well located with restaurants, shopping centre and grocery stores, all within walking distance.
The advice that we received from Agnes about the places to visit was very valuable and detailed , this really helped us maximize our vacation.We were glad we followed her advice about buying pineapples from the vendor at Rochester falls! Best pineapples on the island!!
We highly recommend the day trip to Benitier island with Ken; We got to see the wild dolphins, we snorkeled and finally had a delicious lunch on the beach of Benitier island, it was a perfect day trip.
We will definitely go back to Olana on our next visit to Mauritius!

“A little hidden gem!!”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Having rented a car from 5* Shandrani we made our way through some interesting, but obviously very poor areas. Sceptical we made our way to the town of Tamarin. Closer to our final destination we were really starting to get worried, but as soon as we arrived our fears subsided. Ken and Agnes, a lovely couple were waiting for us at the premises, with friendly smiles and some great advice. Premises was as advertised, in fact it exceeded our expectations. Modern, neat, well maintained and clean. If you looking to experience all the island attractions, this is a great base location. Ken took the family on a fantastic excursion, swimming with dolphins and was a very warm and hospitable host. All round a great holiday.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for a month with 3 kids aged 9, 13 and 15. It couldn't have been better! The apartment was perfect and in a great location - clean and nicely decorated. Sabrina was very pleasant and cleaned for us every day - most people don't clean to my standards but I would have liked to take her home with me!! The kids loved the pool and beach. The beach in front of the apartment is small but it gets bigger around the corner and is beautiful. My husband and I walked along it for over an hour most days. Ken and Agnes were great and very helpful. We rented a kayak from them and also booked the boat for a trip to snorkel and see dolphins which was amazing - we even saw whales. Ken helped us with scuba diving as well and my 15 year old was able to get certified. They were full of information and suggestions. Everything we needed was close by - shops, cafe, post office, groceries etc. We rented a car and found more than enough to do to fill 4 weeks. In fact we will definitely be back and would stay here again.

“peaceful, picturesque with all the modern comforts”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A very enjoyable place to stay. Tastefully decorated with all the mod cons. The location is superb if you are wanting a 'home away from home.' The pool was clean, the maid was efficient & we felt at ease to just stroll out our door & take a leisurely walk on the beach, or just to sit around & enjoy the surroundings without having to do anything at all!
We would stay here again as it certainly is one of the top locations in Maurtius with good shops/restaurants, security & fantastic climate.

“Fantastic place!”

We recently spent 12 nights in one of the ground floor apartments at Olana Beachfront Apartment.
The apartment is more than anyone could need, decorated beautifully with all amenities and plenty of space.
The gardens are well maintained and the pool is fab!
Agnes and Ken, the owners, are extremely helpful and readily available to help with anything you need. They kindly arranged, and Ken took us, scuba diving on my hubby's 40th birthday.
The beach out the front of the apartment is small and not really great for swimming in but decent beaches are only a short drive to Flic en Flac or a little further to La Morne.
The location worked for us as it was quiet, we had two small children, but although there is a large shopping area with some lovely restaurants behind the villa you would def need a car to get out and about.
We spent several evenings at a lovely place called The Bay, about a 15 min walk away, watching the sunsets and eating amazing food. We also got takeaway from an amazing Thai place called Ousaporn again a 10/15 min walk away.
If you are looking for a family friendly place with plenty of space, privacy, luxury accommodation and a relaxed environment then you don't need to look any further than this wonderful place :)
