Our stay at this place was fantastic from December 21st, 2015 to January 7th, 2016. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner's relatives Nathalie and Thierry who were most helpful in giving information such as cab numbers, etc. In addition, the fridge was stocked with food and essentials to begin with, so we did not have to worry about that first hand. This was very much appreciated and is not always the case with airBnb rentals, so it was a definite plus.
Mauritius is beautiful. The house is about a 10-15 minute walk from Mont Choisy, a public beach which is fantastic with great street food trucks. The area that the house was in is Pointe aux Cannonier which is about 10 minutes by cab to Grand Baie where there are a many good places to go for dinner and drinks. The area the house is in has four great restaurants in walking distance, and a nice sports pub "Hangar's" which has fantastic pizza. We even walked to Grand Baie where there are great beach bars. There is a night club just around the corner from the house, but from what we experienced, the club was small, a bit run-down, and crammed with people making it hard to move about. Perhaps, it was just on the night that we were there. There are two shopping malls nearby for those that like to shop.
The owner's brother, I believe, is the executive chef at a nearby restaurant/pool/relax area known as Le Off which is beautiful, delicious, and great food. He was most accommodating and extremely friendly as well as the sister who greeted us when we saw her in town asking us how our stay was.
We would definitely stay here again. Excellent location (you can be isolated if you wish or if you want to be in the center of everything you can do that also with a short cab ride), fantastic hosts, beautiful scenery, exceptional food in the area and nearby areas, and the drinks were a plenty. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay!
One more thing...we had a night flight on the 7th, and we were allowed to stay as long as we wanted on the check-out day which was most accommodating and appreciated. Thanks again for everything! We hope to be back one day!
