We enjoyed an amazingly relaxing holiday at this lovely villa. Everything is as described by owner Wendy above - the villa is bright, airy, incredibly spacious, modern and well equipped; the pool is perfect (not at all overlooked); the gardens are lush and green (and full of bright and beautiful wildlife!); and the location is private and extremely peaceful.
Our only neighbours were in the larger villa next door (also owned by Wendy) - and as our pool and veranda were on the opposite side of our villa to this larger residence (which was also separated from us by garden), we really did feel fantastically secluded.
Also, it was reassuring to know that caretakers Baby and Garcon, who live close by, were always available if we had any queries.
This is a truly wonderful place to stay if you want to get away from it all. We came home feeling thoroughly rested.
We hired a car on arrival at the airport and found it invaluable during our stay in Mauritius. We visited various parts of the island and explored quite a few beaches (Trou-Aux-Biches was our favourite).
We also used the car for trips to the massive Super U supermarket - just 10 mins' drive away - where we found we could buy pretty much anything we wanted for our self-catering stay (including soya milk!).
The northerly location of the villa suited us well, and we would choose the same location for a return trip to Mauritius.
The villa really is a perfect base for a marvellous holiday and we would love to stay again! In a spirit of constructive feedback, hopefully Wendy won't mind us suggesting just a couple of areas for improvement:
1/ The large living/kitchen/dining area could really benefit from the addition of air conditioning (it currently has none, and became uncomfortably hot in the evenings when we closed the doors and windows to keep the mosquitoes out).
2/ Cotton bed linen would be wonderful : ) More comfortable in the heat...and also more in keeping with the luxury feel of the villa.
Overall, we wholeheartedly recommend this villa as a fabulous place to stay and have no hesitation in giving it a 5-star rating. Thank you, Wendy, for a wonderful break!
Wir sind 7 Personen und haben die Villa im März 2018 für 2 Wochen gebucht. Das Haus ist sehr sauber und in einer ruhigen Gegend gelegen. Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsch offen, es ist alles Vorhanden was man braucht.Im Vorfeld sehr guten E-Mail Kontakt mit vielen Informationen. Flughafentransfer und Mietwagen wurden von Shirley und Linlay organisiert. Wir sind sehr früh am morgen (5:00 Uhr) in der Villa angekommen wo Linlay auf uns mit einem Frühstück gewartet hat. Ebenfalls haben wir ein Handy bekommen um Linlay z.b. bei Problemen zu erreichen. Das gab uns ein unbezahlbares Gefühl der Sicherheit in einer doch zumindest am Anfang unbekannten Welt.
Linlays Kochkünste sollte man sich auf jeden Fall nicht entgehen lassen. Ein Auto ist jedoch unbedingt zu empfehlen. Alles in allem ein toller Urlaub in einem tollen Haus bei tollen Leuten. Vielen Dank nochmal von uns Sieben aus dem Rheinland :)
