Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday bungalow in Mauritius West Coast and Center - Bungalow Badamier

2 Bedroom Bungalow with large, wooden terrace near La Preneuse Beach

Welcome to La Preneuse and the Bungalow Badamier!

Our bungalow is located in lush, quiet surroundings in a secure residential neighbourhood of La Preneuse, far away from the main road. The covered terrace is filled with tropical plants, along with plenty of peace and quiet - a very relaxing place to have your breakfast in the morning.

We also offer you access to one of the largest and cleanest swimming pools in the world, located only 150 meters away from the bungalow. It’s called the Indian Ocean, and it's completely free of chlorinated, recirculated pool water!

All our guests benefit from free maid service, including a free laundry service. There are no hidden electricity charges or other 'optional' charges. Know exactly what you pay for before you go!

If you need to access internet from the comfort of your bed, the terrace, or even the beach – you can borrow a 3G USB modem free of charge. Data/traffic charges is approximately £7/€8 per 1000 Mb (1 Gb). This is typically enough for 2-4 weeks of surfing the web. The service provider is Emtel, and network cover is island wide. Please note that this service need to be booked in advance.

There is also an internet café on Royal Road in La Preneuse, with sit down desktop computers, and there are several restaurants that offer free wireless internet access to their guests, should you wish to leave your laptop or smart phone at home.

Emtel prepaid internet services work with Windows and Mac OS operating systems. Emtel also offer prepaid internet services for most smart phones (iPhone, Galaxy etc) and tablet computers (iPad etc).

If you are interested in renting a car during your stay, please let us know and we will put you in touch with a reputable and licensed local car rental agency that offers very competitive rates. They deliver the car to the bungalow free of charge.

The Bungalow Badamier is licensed for rentals by the Mauritius Tourism Authority, which means that it meets all the requirements of the Government of Mauritius for short term holiday rentals, such as fire regulations for example.

All pictures shown are from the actual bungalow, La Preneuse beach and the immediate surroundings.

We wish all our new guests (and of course all of our returning guests) a warm welcome to the Bungalow Badamier!

Statistics:

- The Bungalow Badamier ranks among the top 10 % when sorting on guest reviews on HomeAway Mauritius accommodations (last check: SEP 2014).

- 75 % of ALL Mauritius accommodations listed on HomeAway are more expensive than the Bungalow Badamier (last check: SEP 2014).

We think the above two facts are pretty hard to beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. One small problem, a door between the bathroom and bedroom at the back of the apartment would make it all perfect.



If we were to visit Mauritius again, we would definitely choose to stay here again.



--- This review has been translated from Danish. Original text below.



Vi var/er meget tilfredse. Det kan kun anbefales.



Værtsparret var yderst venlige og hjælpsomme. Et lille problem, en dør mellem toilet og soveværelse bagerst i lejligheden ville gøre det hele perfekt.



Hvis vi skal til Mauritius igen, vil vi helt sikkert vælge at bo her igen.



---



Many thanks for the kind words! We’re very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Bungalow Badamier. Many thanks for your suggestion of a door in the back of the bungalow. We will have a look and see if this would be a good option for the next renovation. Thank you for your feedback. You are of course more than welcome to visit us again.

Ganz ausgesprochen wunderbar!

  • 5 of 5

Agefangen beim freundlichen Empfang, über die günstige Lage, die großzügige, saubere und gut ausgestattete Wohnung, den perfekten Service, Marilyns liebevolle Art und die Hilfsbereitschaft der gesamten Familie Shewdeeen bis zur Wehmut, die uns seit unserem Abschied begleitet, hat es uns an nichts gefehlt. Dass diese Insel ein Paradies ist, kann man sicher auf viele Arten erleben, aber wohl nirgends geschieht dies so eindrücklich und nachaltig wie hier. P'tite l'amour...Eine große Empfehlung!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and your kind superlatives. It's great to hear that you had a relaxing holiday! Although our knowledge of German might need some improvement, we do understand that you enjoyed your stay in La Preneuse! Mauritius is indeed a paradise island, and it makes us very happy that you compare our accommodation with such a grand expression. We wish you all the best, and a warm welcome back, should you ever feel the need to escape the cold rain in Europe!

RELAX here .. it's so easy

  • 5 of 5

We were met promptly for transportation to / from the new Mauritius airport. The owners, Maryline and Jacques were so helpful and kind without being intrusive in any way. We were met with fresh flowers and fruit. Maryline provided good instructions for the location and the workings of the apartment. The bungalow was clean, spacious, with nice linens and one of the best equipped kitchens that we have encountered. The doors and windows open to the tropical breezes and the smells of the flowers and the many plants. The pictures and the descriptions are accurate. The white sand beach is just one block away and a full service grocery store is just a short walk. Next to the grocery store is a great take out counter and a pleasant coffee shop with free WiFi. We ate all our meals on the veranda and I spent many comfortable hours there reading. When Jacques had a free morning with no fishing charter, we chartered with him on his fishing boat, not for fishing, but for a great sightseeing cruise in the lagoon while viewing the dramatic topography of Mauritius. We highly recommend this bungalow for a relaxing stay in Mauritius.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to you for your friendliness and for your feedback! Many of our guests have mentioned the take-away and coffee shop near London Way. It’s a great and popular place for good value food. It is also great to hear that you had a relaxing stay. With the bungalow set back away from the main road, it’s indeed a quiet neighbourhood, and relaxation is exactly what we want for all of our guests. Again, many thanks for your feedback, and we wish you the best of luck for the rest of your journey around the world!

Wonderful place very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect from the beginning. The taxi driver for the transfer from the airport was waiting for us. Our hosts Maryline and Jacques and their wonderful son Olivier welcomed us and made us feel at home. We had fresh flowers in the living room and in the bathrooms and fresh fruits on the dinning table. The bungalow is very clean - thanks to Maryline - well equipped and spacious with a comfortable porch. Only the kitchen is a bit small. To the beach it is only a short walk, the supermarket (London Way) had everything we needed and is 5 minutes away, restaurants and the bus stop as well. Maryline and Jacques are wonderful hosts. They are very helpful, friendly and nothing is too much for them.

We are two couples, so we stayed with 4 adults at Bungalow Badamier. It was great to have the two bedrooms with two bathrooms and enough space for everyone.

If you look for a quiet, comfortable location near the beach with wonderful hosts - that is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you Martina for your valuable feedback! Next year we are going to look into the possibility of making the kitchen larger. We’re happy to hear that you appreciate the flowers and the tropical fruit (many of which grow in the wild in Mauritius – especially mango and papaya, but also guava, passion fruit and many others). You are of course more than welcome to visit us again. We wish you a "Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes Neues Jahr!“, or as we say in Mauritius, "Joyeux Noël et bonne année”!

Great Holiday! Thanks!

  • 4 of 5

Großzügiger Bungalow mit riesiger Veranda zum Wohlfühlen und sehr freundlicher Vermieterin. Die Küche ist etwas klein, reicht aber aus. Wir hatten kurzzeitig Probleme mit dem Wasser, die aber umgehend behoben wurden. Der Strand ist weniger als 5 Min. entfernt, Supermarkt und Bäcker sind ebenfalls gut zu Fuß zu erreichen (10-15 Min.). Flic en Flac kann mit dem Bus besucht werden, für sämtliche andere Entfernungen empfiehlt sich ein Taxi oder Mietwagen. Der über Joakim organisierte Boottrip war ein echtes Highlight!

Spacious Bungalow with a huge and comfortable porch, very friendly landlady. The kitchen is a bit small, but sufficient. We had problems with the water supply for a short time, but they were immediately corrected. The beach is less than 5 minutes away, supermarket and bakery are all within walking distance (10-15 minutes.). Flic en Flac can be visited by bus, for all other distances we recommend a taxi or rental car. The boat trip organized by Joakim was a real highlight!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in the Bungalow Badamier. During extreme (and rare) weather conditions, temporary water shortages can occur across the island. To battle this, we have installed backup water tanks, but in rare cases they can of course also run out. Anyway, we’re happy that we were able to fix it for you right away. We’re of course also happy that you enjoyed the dolphin cruise - it is a much appreciated sailing adventure, and of course a great opportunity to experience live spinner and bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat. Again, many thanks for your kind words, and we wish you a warm welcome back!

A happy holiday - very keen to return!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Bungalow Badamier and each time we got back from a long journey, we were pleased to "get home" - a home away from home. Badamier is a very pleasant and comfortable cottage. We liked it that each of us could find our favourite spot to relax - read book, do sudoku or watch TV.

Maryline went out of her way to make our stay very pleasant. She kept the unit very clean and it was nice to discover a fresh rose in the bedroom and fresh fruit on the kitchen table. We look forward to our next stay at Bungalow Badamier.
