The situation of Villa Happiness is indescribable. It has to be seen to be believed. It must be the best beach on the island - quiet, and no vendors. Francois arranged taxi pick up at airport and we were greeted at the villa by Nida and a beautiful smell of curry coming from the kitchen. We got daily delivery of fresh fish, lobsters, vegetables and bread all at reasonable prices. There is a well stocked supermarket "London Way" just 5mins drive away. We hired a car which Francois very kindly organised for us. We cannot find one negative thing to say about this property. I suggest you go see for yourself. You will have an amazing vacation surrounded by the friendliest people in the world. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
We enjoyed 10 magical days at Villa Vakoa. Everything is perfectly designed and appointed for instant relaxation; from the warm welcome and perfectly-judged hospitality of Diane and Christophe, to the comfort of the villa itself, the lushness of its garden and delights of the private pool. The location is wonderful – just steps away from a picture-postcard beach of white sands, turquoise waters and stunning views.
All our needs were anticipated and provided for, from a welcome meal and daily cleaning, to snorkelling gear, beach towels and local recommendations. Diane and Christophe made everything so easy, pleasant and friendly.
We’d definitely recommend doing activities which can be easily arranged while you’re there: one of our highlights was a fantastic catamaran cruise to the Ile aux Cerfs. Hiring a car would be useful, although we managed perfectly well without; it’s easy to get buses and taxis from outside the villa to go to the nearby supermarket and other local towns and beaches (Blue Bay Marine Reserve is only 5 minutes away – excellent snorkelling!)
I have stayed at many holiday rental properties and this has been by far the best experience I’ve had. I recommend Villa Vakoa without hesitation and hope to stay again if I’m lucky enough to visit Mauritius again – I feel sure we’d be welcomed like old friends!
