About the property

2 Bedroom Bungalow with large, wooden terrace near La Preneuse Beach

Welcome to La Preneuse and the Bungalow Badamier!

Our bungalow is located in lush, quiet surroundings in a secure residential neighbourhood of La Preneuse, far away from the main road. The covered terrace is filled with tropical plants, along with plenty of peace and quiet - a very relaxing place to have your breakfast in the morning.

We also offer you access to one of the largest and cleanest swimming pools in the world, located only 150 meters away from the bungalow. It’s called the Indian Ocean, and it's completely free of chlorinated, recirculated pool water!

All our guests benefit from free maid service, including a free laundry service. There are no hidden electricity charges or other 'optional' charges. Know exactly what you pay for before you go!

If you bring your laptop, smartphone, iPad or other device, you can connect to internet via our WiFi / wireless network. It has unlimited usage allowance, and the router supports an unlimited number of devices connected simultaneously.

There is also an internet café on Royal Road in La Preneuse, with sit down desktop computers, and there are several restaurants that offer free wireless internet access to their guests, should you wish to leave your laptop or smart phone at home.

If you want to get online from the beach, the internet service providers Emtel and Orange offer various prepaid packages for your smartphone or tablet device.

If you are interested in renting a car during your stay, please let us know and we will put you in touch with a reputable and licensed local car rental agency that offers very competitive rates. They deliver the car to the bungalow free of charge.

The Bungalow Badamier is licensed for rentals by the Mauritius Tourism Authority, which means that it meets all the requirements of the Government of Mauritius for short term holiday rentals, such as fire regulations for example.

All pictures shown are from the actual bungalow, La Preneuse beach and the immediate surroundings.

About J Drugge

Having managed holiday rentals for over 20 private accommodations in Mauritius, including a small hotel, during some 10 years, I believe I am entitled to say that I have solid experience in providing stellar customer service to all my guests. I want to sleep well at night, and I do that by making sure that my guests are happy, and that they get real value for money during their holiday. It really is as simple as that.

Why J Drugge chose Black River

My daughter was born while staying in the Bungalow Badamier, and for this reason, the place is very special to me. It also means that I have first hand experience staying in the bungalow with children, and I feel very confident in welcoming new guests with children of all ages. We have a baby bed that you may borrow free of charge, and if you need a baby sitter we can arrange this at very moderate rates. For the older children, there is a 40 inch flatscreen television with some 30 local and international channels, making it very easy to entertain even the most demanding of children!

What makes this bungalow unique

What makes the Bungalow Badamier special is in part its close proximity to a very secluded beach (literally less than 100 metres away), but we also think it's a big bonus that La Preneuse is one of the most affluent residential neighbourhoods in all of Mauritius. This is reflected in the many quality services provided in the area, from exquisite food to a plethora of activities, including sailing, dolphin watching, big game fishing, and many other water based activities. Welcome home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. One small problem, a door between the bathroom and bedroom at the back of the apartment would make it all perfect.

If we were to visit Mauritius again, we would definitely choose to stay here again.

--- This review has been translated from Danish. Original text below.

Vi var/er meget tilfredse. Det kan kun anbefales.

Værtsparret var yderst venlige og hjælpsomme. Et lille problem, en dør mellem toilet og soveværelse bagerst i lejligheden ville gøre det hele perfekt.

Hvis vi skal til Mauritius igen, vil vi helt sikkert vælge at bo her igen.


Many thanks for the kind words! We’re very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Bungalow Badamier. Many thanks for your suggestion of a door in the back of the bungalow. We will have a look and see if this would be a good option for the next renovation. Thank you for your feedback. You are of course more than welcome to visit us again.

Great location and wonderful hosts

  • 4 of 5

Booking and communication was easy and very prompt and nothing was too much trouble - thanks Joakim!

Badamier is a perfect location in La Preneuse. Minutes from a quiet part of the beach and 5-10 mins walk to some fabulous restaurants and the main supermarket so you could survive happily without a car but just using local taxis for day trips. Hosts Jacques and Maryline were just lovely - welcoming and helpful but totally discreet and the laundry service was perfect with our clothes coming back beautifully pressed. There is lots of living space inside and out although the kitchen is small (but well equipped) if you are thinking of cooking every night. The terrace is lovely but watch the mozzies if you are sitting out after dark. Air con in bedrooms was also very welcome. If you are looking for contemporary luxury with all the mod cons this is probably not for you but if you want a slice of real Mauritian life, with lovely hosts and in an ideal spot this is hard to beat. We took away very happy memories and would return in a heartbeat.

Beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest three weeks vacation in a long time, we are already the second time in Mauritius, but since La Preneus is the best because it is central. One is fast in Casela National Park, Pampelmouse and Le Morne one of the most beautiful beaches. Maryline and Jacques were very nice and attentive. They even cooked for us a couple of times, so the food is just fantastic. This was not the last time, we will be back. Greetings from Erhard, Moni, Fritz & Manuela

Excellent rapport qualité prix

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 nuits au badamier, on y trouve tout le confort attendu! Clim, bonne literie, cuisine bien équipée , varangue très agréable .. Il suffit de longer la petite rue pour se retrouver sur la plage, avec Sur le chemin un super petit resto,mais le vrai plus c'est le service apporté par marylin qui vit en dessous, en toute discrétion . Adresse à recommander fortement

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your visit, and many thanks for taking the time to write a review! The beach is indeed close to the bungalow, which is very convenient for that refreshing morning dip just before breakfast. Not to mention the lunch dip and the afternoon dip, and arguably the most alluring dip of them all - the sunset dip! Many thanks for stopping by, and we hope to see you again soon!

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderfully relaxing 5 days at Bungalow Badamier over the New Year - it is perfect for those in search of a quiet, relaxing holiday. We rented our own car so we'd be able to explore the island during the stay, and had no problem finding the bungalow thanks to the precise instructions provided at booking! No problem with the parking by the house. The location is fantastic - it is a short walk down to a beautiful calm beach and there were never any crowds. The area seems quite residential and family oriented, with several restaurants within walking distance as well as a very handy, and well stocked supermarket. We had several very pleasant sundowners and dinners on the veranda, watching the small geckos have their own dinner! It's a short drive to the beaches of Le Morne or Tamarin, as well as very close to the entrance of the Black River Gorges park. (Which is very handy for an early morning hike! Highly recommended!) The bungalow itself is very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Maryline and Jacques were very kind and attentive hosts, and even invited us to have a celebratory drink with them on New Year's Eve. If you're looking for a comfortable, easy, relaxing and beautifully located self-catering holiday... this is the place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay. A lot of our guests comment on the tranquillity in La Preneuse, and the location of the bungalow near the beach, and it is great to hear that you had such a relaxing stay. Hopefully many more will get to experience the relaxing life in La Preneuse and the surrounding areas, and you are of course more than welcome to come back to us again in the future. Again, many thanks for taking the time to write your kind words!
