Why Sandra and Mark Alix-Brown chose Pereybere
The apartment is in a small residential complex in the village of Pereybere. It is ideally located, being within a 3 to 5 minute walk from two of the most beautiful beaches on the island with fine white sand and limpid turquoise water. One of them has excellent water sports on offer.
The apartment is in one of the few residences to be so close to these two stunning beaches while also benefitting from a relatively large swimming pool on site. Although this well equipped apartment is self-catering, it is cleaned 5 days a week (included in the price) and for a small fee our lovely French and English speaking housekeeper Marceline can offer home cooked meals to your taste, washing and ironing services. All the rooms are air-conditioned including the living/dining room (not just the bedrooms).
The residence has a lodge at the entrance where the concierge and his wife the caretaker live.
The bus stop is within a minute walk from the apartment, which makes it easy to visit the island for a very inexpensive fare - it can be a little bumpy at times!. For more comfort, the taxi stand is within a 5 minute walk from the apartment.
From Pereybere, there is a wide variety of day excursions to any part of the island, ranging from cultural visits to museums, colonial houses and exotic botanical gardens, to outdoor activities such as trekking/quad-biking/4x4 in forested hills and wild-life safari parks, to water activities such as the under-sea walk, submarine ride, kite-surfing and parasailing.
What makes this apartment unique
We fell in love with the village of Pereybere on the sheltered north coast of Mauritius. It has a local, laid back feel to it and is only a 5 minute bus/taxi ride away to the larger resort town of Grand Baie. Pereybere has a relaxed village atmosphere while offering a great choice of amenities a short walk away from the apartment, including over 10 restaurants serving excellent and varied local and European food, tour operators, scuba diving and water sports centres, a well stocked supermarket, cash points, a pharmacy and doctor, car hire centres, internet cafes, an Ayurvedic spa centre and beach item shops.
The two beaches within a 3 to 5 minute walk from the apartment are fantastic:
- Pereybere's main beach is a little bay, its tranquil waters like a giant swimming pool. There are two restaurants right on the beach as well as several food stalls from which you can enjoy local specialities throughout the day for a small price. The rear of the beach is lined with Filao trees offering good shade while the front is great for topping up your tan. Water sports activities are on offer: glass bottom boat tours, pedalos, kayaks, water skiing and tubing. It's also the departure point for several excursions such as the swimming with dolphins and day trips to nearby islands. West facing, the sunsets on this beach are wonderful.
- The 'Pointe d'Azur' beach is barely frequented and blessed with beautiful views of the small off-shore islands. From this beach, there is a superb walk along the coast for about 4km up to Cap Malheureux with its well known red-roofed chapel and where the local fishermen bring in their daily catch.
Both beaches are among the safest to swim and snorkel in regardless of the season, being on the sheltered side of the north coast and protected behind a coral reef.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Sandra and Mark
Sorry this has been the first opportunity we have had to contact you after
the conclusion of what must be the best holiday we have had. The flight
back, unpacking and returning to work has taken up much of any spare time we
have had. Your house was referred to by all as home during our stay which again made
the holiday experience a pleasure. The house as I am sure you know has your
personal touch and sets it apart from the general feel of corporate
apartments. Well done and we would not hesitate to recommend your
house to others and would not hesitate in hiring it again on our next visit
(saving and planning already).
