Response from Riverhouse11, Owner at The River House
Responded 8 Dec 2018
Thank you for taking the time to write. I am so sorry you had some problems while I was away. I know there are no restaurants near us on foot so when I am here I do cook in the evening when necessary and there are at least 2 Mauritian Buffet evenings per week for a minimum of 4 guests.( Sometimes more often when requested) I have now organised a system for guests arriving to have a meal in the evening when needed with no notice. Next time I am away( which is very rare) I shall make sure the person who stays here is better trained to advise on restaurants and excursions as I do. A guest gave me the third dog which was a stray and lay on your lounger. She has gone to a good home and I only have 2 well behaved dogs now. We actually have 1 Suite and 2 Deluxe rooms and you were in the Suite which is more suitable for children. I have taken your advice and make sure to clean the bird poo every day as we feed them bananas every morning and they do leave their 'calling cards' on the balustrade.

A lovely small guest house in the most beautiful location. Well furnished and comfortable. Being situated right on the river, the views are magnificent however there was an unseasonal amount of rain for weeks and the river was in flood. This cut off the short cut the ATM and

It is located in a secluded area (of private villas and some hotels) by the river in Barachois, Tamarin Bay, hosted by kind and charming Angela. Getting there needs a car (or a taxi), there’s a car parking for about 6 cars. No buses going near and it’s not walking distance from

Angela and her team make you feel special the minute you arrive. I had a Suite with River View which had scenic views of the water, especially from the back terrace. My suite had everything you would ever need while on vacation. The charming and well-appointed rooms were

Dinner is served several times a week at 17 Euros per person per meal. Lunch can be discussed. Breakfast is a buffet and is served on the main terrace every morning. You may of course choose to serve yourselves and eat on your own terrace. All rooms except the Standard Double have their own private terraces.

How far is the beach to the River House? Are there any sunbeds and umbrellas? Thank you!!!
The beach is a 2 to 3 minute walk from The River House. There are sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool and umbrellas and lightweight chairs in each room to use on the beach.

Hi, There is a hotel restaurant very near - Tamarina and there are others when you cross the mouth of the river. However as we are in a fairly isolated place a car would be better. Angela Piat

Hi, I'd like to know if there is a mosquito-net in the small (wooden) room ? what about the suite? thanks a lot!
Hi, Neither room has a net at the moment but if you would like one we can provide one. As NettyChet has kindly answered we do have anti mozzie devices in the rooms and we spray regularly the house and grounds. We also have no stagnant water around. Best regards

Thank you for your request. I'm sorry for the delay. I have answered a number of times but it seems not to have registered. You are welcome to spend a day here and order some lunch or a dinner in advance but you will be charged for a night. Best regards Angela
