I stayed at the Boutique Villa On The Rocks on the 28 July as a last minute booking and within one hour of booking, I arrived at the place. I found the hosts waiting for me while still preparing the establishment, as the last guest had just departed. It was about 18 hours and they set up a small meal for me on the outdoor garden area facing the sea with some Mauritian edible delights such as Chilli Bites and Baguettes, as the last preparations were being completed inside. While eating, I was able to enjoy the magnificent view of the sea from garden situated on a hill above. The boats returning from Ile aux Cerfs and the fisherman coming into the bay from the deep sea provided an extraordinary flare to the island atmosphere. The next morning, I had a lovely breakfast in that beautiful place. I was left awestruck by the sunrise, and the eclectic, rustic décor. After breakfast, I headed down the adventure trail towards the sea. From down there, you could really appreciate the "On The Rocks" aspect of the magnificent villa. From the rocks, there was a jetty projecting into the sea with steps leading into the water. Within the calm water, you could see fish among the rocks. Whilst swimming, I had the extraordinary sensation of the clashing warm and cold tides, from the salt water and the fresh water of the underwater wells respectively.Oh that s why the place was called Trou d eau douce in French. The swimming experience put together with the nicely laid out villa was an overwhelmingly delightful experience. The hosts had even allowed me to reside within the establishment until the next guest arrived at 8pm, and were kind enough to allow me to share a meal with them in the meantime. I am ever grateful to them, for my departure flight was scheduled very late at night. I highly recommend this place, especially to families -- unfortunately I, myself, was alone this time.
WE HAD A WONDERFUL STAY IN THIS LOVELY APARTMENT WHICH IS ON THE WILDER SIDE OF MAURITIUS. IT WAS A VERY DIFFERENT AND NATURAL PLACE TO THE REST OF THE ISLAND. LOVELY MANGROVE BEACHES NEARBY AT BRAS D'EAU AND POST LAFAYETTE. THE APARTMENT IS WELL EQUIPPED AND THE HOST NESHAT VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE AREA AND VERY HELPFUL - (WE HAD A FEW PROBS WITH THE TV AND SHE WAS THERE IN AN INSTANT TO SORT IT). I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND A STAY HERE. ONE THING - IT IS QUITE CUT OFF AND ADVISABLE TO ARRIVE WITH GOOD PROVISIONS FOR FOOD. THERE ARE 2 RESTAURANTS CLOSE, BUT NO SHOPS WITHOUT A JOURNEY. JUST YOU AND NATURE. WE LOVED IT!
