Make a holiday rental accommodation or villa in Mauritius your home away from home

The North Coast of Mauritius, the ultimate island paradise, is the most developed for the demands of tourism, with many excellent restaurants, luxury self catering accommodation and a handful of bars and clubs. There is a massive amount to do, and even more to see in Mauritius, so this short article is the briefest guide to Mauritius possible!

Things to do on holiday on the North Coast of Mauritius

Many of the activities available from holiday accommodation in Mauritius are water based. Catamaran trips to the outlying islands are great fun, and can be arranged from Grand Bay. Sailing holidays to Mauritius are unbeatable, with many delightful coves and inlets to be explored from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The scuba diving is also exceptional; again, it is the warm clear waters which make diving holidays to Mauritius such a genuine treat, with so many unbelievable things to see living on the coral reefs. Subscooters or submarine rides can also be hired. On water, windsurfing, water skiing, surfing, kite surfing and swimming make taking a holiday rental in Mauritius an ideal family holiday option. The deep-sea fishing is at its height from October until April, when huge marlin, tuna, barracuda and a range of sharks are regularly caught.

On land, horse riding in the Mont Choisy Park and trekking and mountain biking in La Nicoliere are magnificent ways to relax and see natural interior of the island. Mountain climbing, karting, kayaking and walking are other superb options to explore, and there is even an 18 hole golf course.

Of course, a holiday to Mauritius could be spent entirely on the unrivalled white coral sand beaches, especially the powder beach of Coral Bay and Belle Mare.

If cost is shared, well worth the price and they are big, high ceilinged villas. Beautiful location with virtually private beach which is a bit rocky but idyllic. Lovely cleaning staff cooked us breakfast each day and were extremely gracious. Grande Baie is a bit of a walk but once you get to know the bus service, not so difficult. I loved my time staying here and will never forget it.

We arrived to a lovely warm welcome from Baby and Garçon who look after the villa and the guests impeccably and were on hand whenever we needed them. Garçon even let me use his motorbike one day! There are palm trees in the gardens, a lovely pool at the back of the villa and a large outdoor dining area where we enjoyed days and evenings relaxing with drinks and bbq's! The villa itself is amazing. As we entered through the large double doors into a huge entrance lobby we couldn't believe how big yet homely the place was! There is a grand staircase and doors to a bedroom, huge beautifully furnished lounge/dining room, large kitchen with large dining table a utility room with amazing top loading washing machine (which was a god send!) and a wc/shower room. Upstairs is equally grand with 1 huge gorgeous master bedroom with en-suite and amazing sloping ceilings and 2 or 3 more really large bedrooms (there were only 4 of us so can't remember exactly!) all of the rooms have access out onto a balcony overlooking the garden and pool. And there is another wc/shower room! We really couldn't fault a thing. Baby and garçon helped us to plan some amazing days out through their contacts at really great prices and as their guests we were treated like royalty! One day we went on a catamaran trip to explore an island where we had drinks and lunch cooked for us! We swam in the sea and snorkelled, they provided snorkels-we were even taken out on a little motor dinghy to see sea turtles swimming which was absolutely unforgettable! They also helped my family arrange a private catamaran trip for my birthday just the four of us where we watched the sun set whilst sipping champagne, again truly magical! We hired a car for the 2 weeks we were there (with the help of Baby & Garçon) and we really explored! There is so much to see on such a small island! We swam in waterfalls, visited countless paradise beaches (there are plenty in walking distance) went to a wildlife/safari park where we zip lined across gorges, walked around the incredibly vibrant capital, went horse riding, took in some history at a beautiful old colonial estate, experienced some amazing horse racing and meditated at beautiful Hindu temples to name but a few things we enjoyed!!! Honestly, at every restaurant we ate the food was good, in most cases it was exceptional and the street food is delicious everywhere! (Dohl purée a must!)

We have always stayed in a hotel before but this villa was perfect - lots of space, high quality interior, amazing location, beautiful beach and 4 hours of cleaning/ cooking per day from the lovely Anoushka - absolute luxury and bliss! We would love to return and would highly recommend.
