Jean-Philippe's villa in Le Morne is a fabulous place to stay. It is quiet and secluded. The house has everything you will need for a relaxing stay. He was very accommodating to us. Our flight arrived at 6 AM, and he was willing to give us a very early check-in which is great since we were so tired after traveling for 36 hours! We highly recommend staying at this villa!

This is a great option for anyone who is looking for a genuine experience of south western Mauritius. The house is perfectly located in le Morne with beautiful ocean view and surrounded by a lush garden. It is near the beach, a small city centre and the mountain. There are many activities to do in the area. Renting a car is cheap, through Jean Phillies recommendation we paid half prize compared to what the large firms at the airports charge. A car was a necessity for us, all though we did see tourists using the public transportation system and there were bus stops nearby. I would highly recommend the option of renting a private villa and to stay away from the large resort as you will learn and experience a lot more about the country this way. The host Jean Phillipe is very personable, friendly and service minded. He stopped by a few times just to see how things were going and was always only a phone call away if we had any questions. All his recommendations of activities were top class. All the people he connected us with were genuine, friendly and professional. The cook Gracia made superb local food and was very friendly. Coming home to a home made dinner everyday was amazing. Not only was the food more delicious than the restaurants we tried, but as a family with a small child is was also nice to be able to just relax at home and not have to worry about going out for dinner at night. The house itself is a good size two bedroom villa. The interior is simple but is has all necessities, it was clean and had a homely feel. Since it is a tropical climate bugs, ants, mosquitoes and lizards are to be expected, but it was not to an extent that it bothered us. The area felt very safe and we were completely relaxed around the house. This was one of our best holidays ever and Jean Phillipe played a large part in that. THANK YOU! Ingrid, Mikkel and Gusten

We can highly recommend this house for you holidays on Mauritius! Special thanks to Jean Philippe for warm welcome - there was a starting list of food with all necessary things, waiting for us at the house at our arrival! After very long way it's so important! I want to mark that the owner is very attentive persone - he provided us with all necessary contacts (for taxi, fishing, restaraunts, car-rent), he was always in touch to help us any time. The situation of the villa is rather convenient - right between public beach and small city with supermarket and minibank. There is a spectacular view on the ocean from the terrace! The road is close, but it's not noisy and there is no any traffic at night. The house is surrounded by trees, so you feel like there are no any neighbours around. The house is not new but all the systems worked well and we didn't have any problems. There are a lot of plates and all kitchen utensils, enought chairs and tables for big company, huge territory to play or sunbathe. According to Mauritius, if you planning to travel a lot its better to rent a car as taxi is rather expensive. Internet is not very quick.

True Mauritian experience. Great house, great hosts and what a location!!! It is not a new house, but it worked and all the amenities worked too. We really felt at home there. Their is everything you need if you are not looking for a brand new 5 star hotel. I would definitely come back. Thank you Gracia and Jean Philippe La maison est super, l'accueil est parfait et l'endroit est magnifique. Certe la maison n'est pas récente mais si vous ne recherchez pas un hotel 5 étoiles, il y a tout ce qu'il faut, et tout fonctionne. Je reviendrai avec grand plaisir. Merci Gracia et Jean Philippe.

C'était notre premier voyage à l'île Maurice. Nous sommes venus en compagnie de nos 2 grands enfants. Nous avons passé 2 très bonnes semaines dans la maison de Jean Philippe. Nous avons apprécié la vue sur la mer, la beauté du jardin et la tranquillité de l'environnement. Amateurs de kitesurf, la situation de la maison est parfaite, le spot du Morne est à 2 pas. La cuisine de Gracia nous a permis de découvrir les spécialités mauriciennes. Jean Philippe a organisé notre prise en charge de l'aéroport à la maison et la prise de contact avec le loueur de voiture Bon car. Un vrai plus. Nous recommandons pour apprendre le kitesurf l'école Sonofkite et Maria Boat pour les balades en mer. Nous reviendrons, c'est certain.

Endroit idyllique, idéalement situé entre la mer et au pied du Morne, la maison est tellement agréable que l'on s'y sent comme chez soi ... grâce également à Bérénice, notre compagne à quatre pattes du séjour !!! Un grand merci à Gracia, fantastique cuisinière, et Vikash pour sa gentillesse et ses bons conseils. Jean-Philippe, le propriétaire, est attentif au bien-être de ses hôtes, et leur procure tous les renseignements dont ils ont besoin. Sans nul doute notre choix se portera de nouveau sur Villa Allamanda si notre chemin repasse par le Morne ...

Super séjour dans la maison de Jean-Philippe! Tous les jours Gracia vient faire le ménage mais surtout la cuisine!! Quel régal, un gros gros atout de ce logement :) Les pièces sont spacieuses et la vue magnifique! On avait l'impression d'être perdu en pleine nature, un beau dépaysement pour nous et notre bébé! A 2km de la plage du Morne et du lagon pour le kitesurf! Merci pour tout Gracia et Jean-Philippe!

J`habite le Morne depuis une quarantaine d`années. C`est le coin le plus exotique et preservé de l`ile. Au point que depuis 2008, le Morne est classé Patrimoine Mondial par l`UNESCO sous le nom de "Paysage culturel du Morne"
Le site est un sanctuaire pour les esclaves marrons et represente de nos jours un lieu de memoire de la période coloniale de l`ile.
Si vous cherchez un coin tranquille et authentique, c`est ici qu`il faut venir. Je vous y accueillerai personellement et Gracia, notre cuisiniere, vous concoctera des petits plats typiques.
