About Trish & Kev

I was formerly a personal trainer in London ( also a DJ, singer songwriter, waitress in NYC) I am now a practitioner and student of A Course in Miracles (spiritual psychology ) Kev is Mauritian born has worked hard to build our place and is also interested in spirituality . We created much of the fixtures and designed our properties we work well together.

We believe that Love is the most important driver of our business, and hope to benefit the local community that is the face of our place and that our guests feel loved by this property and its environment

TRISHA VALAYDON purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Trish & Kev chose Rivière Noire District

Sunset and rainbow watch while you barbecue a catch of the day, sun worshippers can cool off under the roof shower . At night star gazers can snuggle on the giant sunbed on the roof of Beautique studios. You will share the same stretch of pristine sand as the luxury hotels in Le Morne at a fraction of the price, whilst enjoying more privacy, more space (the rooms are a generous size) and have a much more authentic experience.

Ideal for those looking for daytime action.... there is a chilled out vibe at night with a few good local restaurants and a couple of bars

What makes this apartment unique

This property is really close to the best natural highlights of the island and there are not many authentic coastal villages like this left on the island

Exactly what we wanted! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue and that is in part due to the fact that after leaving this place, you’ll have a hard time accepting it. It’s just that lovely!

My boyfriend and I spent a little over 2 months in Mauritius and while our original booking with Trish and Kev was only for a week, we ending up booking our entire stay with them. So we were lucky enough to stay in a number of their apartments, all of which are perfect for any length of stay.

To start, their property is easily in the best area of the island. It’s a safe and quiet residential community. After much exploration and hearing the opinions of other guests, We wouldn’t suggest staying far from Le Morne beach. You’re a short drive to the most beautiful beaches of the island as well as a fully stocked grocery store. I will say that a car is a must though, as you’ll undoubtedly want to explore the rest of the island. Luckily you can rent a car from Trish and Kev!

The apartment is simple, but lovely. Tastefully decorated with natural tones, there’s more than enough space for two. You’ve got a large closet with a safe to hold your valuables, a bathroom much larger than typical American bathrooms, and AC should you choose. We opted for the sea breeze, sleeping with our patio doors open every night. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook yourself. If you can’t find something, just ask! Or if you prefer to eat out, there are a number of restaurants worth visiting close by. The cleaning ladies do a wonderful job of keeping the place spotless. No matter which apartment you’re in, you have a lovely private terrace for breath taking views of the sunset. For the sunrise, be sure to head up to the roof deck one morning for a full view. Dinner up there is lovely as well.

Internet was a priority since we work remote. We had a few hiccups, which were addressed immediately so we were able to work without interruption. Before leaving, the town north of here was getting fiber optic cable, so surely it will be available here soon.

As for activities outside of the apartment, Trish and Kev are a wonderful resource, happy to help research and book any type of excursion, from a private beach dinner to swimming with dolphins.

I can’t recommend this place enough! You’ll be extremely pleased with yourself. Trish and Kev made our stay wonderful by not only being wonderful and thorough hosts, but lovely people. We hope to visit our friends again soon!

Lovely holiday in Beautique Studios, La Gaulette

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday staying in Beautique Studios. The area is lovely, great beaches close by, good places to eat, and a well stocked supermarket that has all you need for self catering. The studios are very clean, comfortable, non-fussy and modern. Trisha and Kev have worked hard to make this an excellent place to stay, and from initial contact through to arrival and finally departure they could not have been more welcoming, helpful and efficient. Car hire is essential, and we did this through Victor who provided an excellent service. If you want a great place to stay and to feel your tourism money is supporting local businesses in a beautiful rural part of Mauritius, look no further. We very much hope to have the opportunity to return.

Wonderful apartement, lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

My stay in Mauritius was amazing. The apartment was huge, well equipped and just beautiful. Trisha and Kevin who run that place are the best hosts you can imagine. I instantly felt at home and very welcome. The view on the rooftop over the coast and a little island in front of it is stunning. The most beautiful beach on Mauritius is pretty close, but you might want to get a car as it is just a little too far for a walk. Thanks again Trish and Kevin for everything.

Fantastic Stay Jan 2013

  • 4 of 5

Myself and my lovely lady enjoyed a fantastic stay at the Beautique Studios, the apparement was clean and spacious and the bed was a dream.

We stayed in studio 1 and very much enjoyed the morning sun with breakfast!

The roof terrance has fantastic views, but because of the heat and a lack of swimming pool we spent our days exploring or down on the beach, the terrace comes into its own at nighttime and was the perfect spot to enjoy, our seafooddinners fresh from the grill.

The Studio is in a nice location, quite quiet and not to touristy, it is situated close to Le morne Beach, (probably the best beach we found on the island) and also quite close to La Gaulette which has all the basics you will need.

We reccomend staying at the appartments, and arranging car rental from the airport before you arrive.Make sure you go and explore all that Mauritius has to offer, we were there for 2 weeks and only scratched the surface.....

Will we return?

Who knows what the future holds?!
