About Wendy Llloyd Jones

Born,raised and educated in Bristol in UK I now live in a small village in the outskirts of the city. Married with 2 daughters both my husband and I work in the medical fields.

Alice my eldest secured a 1st in Mphys in 2013 and is now doing Phd in Physics and Hannah the younger one is reading Law.

I holidayed in Mauritius in the year 2000 and fell in love with the country and the people, hence our investment in this little paradise. Designed and built to our specification the villa provides comfort, space, peace and tranquility with a touch of luxury. Kitted to a high standard it feels like home away from home which is reflected and supported by many of our guests reviews.

And yes, my husband refers to Mauritius and the villa as his stress-busting therapeutic paradise!

Wendy Llloyd Jones purchased this villa in 2002

Why Wendy Llloyd Jones chose Mauritius North Coast

Having chosen Mauritius to invest in, we intentionally built the villa some 10/15 minutes walking distance from the Beach.

This decision was borne from experience gained in year 2000 when we stayed in a Beach villa. It then came to light that all the Beaches in Mauritius are public and the all-night parties were rather tiresome and a nuisance to say the least.

We feel we have the best of both worlds! A short walking distance to the Beach yet far enough to provide peace and tranquility for a relaxing holiday.

What makes this villa unique

- Peaceful area.

- Private tropical gardens.

- Big private swimming pool.

- Large villa that engenders the wow-factor.

- Views for miles from the balcony.

- First class service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Pendene villa for two glorious weeks, this OCT/NOV 2015.

It was all it promised to be, spacious, airy and well equipped, with a lovely pool right outside. Lots of sun beds for use by all staying there.

We were handsomely looked after by Garçon and Baby, they booked our trips, took us to the best shops and restaurants and even cooked delicious meals and treats for us occasionally.

Our favourite trip was the boat trip to ile aux cerf, closely followed by the trip to a nature reserve called isle aux aigrettes. In fact we enjoyed everything we did, it's hard to choose the best day.

We enjoyed many beach front bars at Peryebere and Grande Baie but our favourite restaurant was Le Pecheur.

I would recommend this holiday/villa to all friends and family, ideal for families and adult groups alike.

We hired a car for the two weeks and had a lot of use out of it, also, it is good to remember that the reason this island is so green and lush, is because it does get rain, but still nice and warm, even when it does.

Pure paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful set in a lovely quiet area on a road with few neighbours. 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!)

Spacious Holiday Villa

  • 4 of 5

This villa is a nice change from the normal small holiday apartments. This villa is just space, space and more space. The rooms are huge, the kitchen, dining room and lounge are also. It has a great outdoor entertainment area by the large pool. The house has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The TV could be a bit bigger as it gets a bit lost in the huge lounge. However we only spent an hour or two watching movies, so not a big deal. If you are stuck inside for a couple of days because of a cyclone, it may be a problem.

The caretaker, Garcon, and his wife are very friendly and helpful although you need to be a little wary of his referrals to restaurants. Pretty sure they up the prices a fair bit and he takes a nice cut.

The house is about 1.6 km from the Pereybere public beach. Don’t get stuck at this beach though, as the beaches 5 to 10 minutes’ drive up and down the coast are fantastic.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dave for your kind review. I very much appreciate it. Just to dispel one or two comments here is my response: - I agree the Lounge is large and that the 32 inch TV can be lost in the vast space. That is the reason why the sofas are strategically arranged so that you are all within the right distance for comfortable viewing. - As for our caretaker/manager ( GARCON ) using any ruse for financial gain is NOT true. There is a plethora of restaurants to choose from, and even if you went to one that he has recommended, surely you get a menu sheet to choose the dish you want and all the dishes are priced. Otherwise I am pleased our South African guests enjoyed their holiday in Mauritius and the villa was to their liking. I will be delighted to be of assistance to Dave and his group again in the future. Thank you again for booking my villa. Wendy Lloyd-Jones.

Beautiful Big Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Pendene in early February . The villa is spacious and very well presented, plenty of room for 3 adults and 5 children. All bedrooms are generous in size and air conditioned. Big kitchen, very nice open living room and a good size pool, which the children loved. (regularly cleaned). The size of the villa allowed people to have their own quiet time, if they wanted.

Garcon & Bebe are both very friendly and welcoming. If we needed help arranging anything - transport, food for parties, days out etc - they were happy to help. Having them so close was a bonus. Good location, quiet, but not too far from a main road. Walking distance to Pereybere and Grand Baie. Bus stop is less than a 5 minute walk.

My only quibble is that the air conditioning in the living room didn't work. At that time of year, being without air-con is certainly noticeable. However, on contacting Wendy, Garcon had set-up a big fan within a couple of hours. In no way did this ruin our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pendene, and i wouldn't hesitate in recommending the villa to friends, or stay here again. Wendy was very helpful throughout and provides an excellent service.

Definitely 5 stars!

Spacious Villa with excellent pool and facilities

  • 5 of 5

The villa is as impressive as the photos. The villa is huge and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There were six of us (2 couples and 2 single people) so there was more than enough room. The pool was excellent and larger than we expected. The villa had all the facilities we expected, a big kitchen, barbecue, 4 bathrooms.

We all loved are stay here the location is excellent. It's a short walk to Pereybere and to Grand Baie. Garcon was more than helpful and organised excellent island trips for us. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

Wendy was very helpful with organising our stay - thank you. We hope to return to Mauritius at some point and we would definitely stay here again.

Villa Pendene - Mauritius

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for 4 amazing weeks and felt like it was a home away from home.

All the bedrooms were very spacious with lots of wardrobe space and a fridge in each room.

The living area was very comfortable with lots of light flowing throughout the villa. All rooms are also air conditioned .

The pool was cleaned on a regular basis and the patio area was nice to relax during the day and evenings with plenty of lighting outside and especially for family BBQS.

We were well looked after although we are not new to mauritius and arranged most of our sightseeing and evenings out our self's.

I would highly recommend The villa to all who are looking for a little bit of luxury in the heart of paradise.

Look forward to returning soon in the future.
