“Perfect stay, perfect location”
Reviewed 19 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent a long weekend in Villa Vakoa. The house was very clean, comfortable and the Kitchen fully equipped. The large veranda was perfect for our meals. The garden is amazing and perfect for let the kids playing. The hosting family is always available for any request and advise. We really felt at home. The location is also perfect. It's just few steps from one of the best sandy beach of the island. The beach is never crowded and from there we rented boats to discover the lovely surrounding. We hope to spend other days in villa Vakoa in the future.
Really thank you to Diane and his husband for the very good service.

“A perfect base for a great vacation”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My family and I, including our 2 children (ages 3 and 6) stayed at Villa Vakoa in April for 10 days. It was truly a wonderful villa and an absolutely lovely trip.

The villa itself is superb, with 3 bedrooms upstairs, each with air conditioning. There is a fourth room on the main level that has a pull-out couch, and that room also has A/C. The living room, dining room, kitchen area is large, and it all opens out to a nice patio and a private pool, all in a private, fenced in area.

The management was great. Diane was helpful and was always available to give us advice or to help us with anything needed. Her husband manages the Preskil down the street and was equally helpful. They helped us to arrange for a rental car and also for a cook to cook our meals for us during our stay, which was affordable and delicious. The villa has a nice coffee-maker for all sorts of coffee drinks.

The location is just a 2-3 minute walk to the beach, is close to Preskil, and is also a nice base for exploring the island. The nearby beach is excellent and relatively quiet. You can arrange boat tours from there as well, which I would highly recommend, and you can also arrange diving, snorkeling, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, and more.

We loved our trip, loved the villa, and were incredibly grateful for out kind and generous hosts. Before we had even left, we were planning our return, and we cannot wait to go back!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely time Villa Vakoa. It is very comfortable, with everything you need. There is lots of communal space, and the bedrooms are also very spacious. It is a very short walk to the beach and the beach is beautiful, with very other beach visitors. It is close to the hotel, which is great. It is also a 2 minute drive to the shopping centre where you can buy anything you need for your meals. There is a water filter provided and even a weber.
The pool area is a great place to entertain and generally just relax.
There is no DSTV, which is not a bad thing, it means we got to play lots of boardgames and cards on the one rainy afternoon! (Although there is a TV and DVD player)
The hosts are also very gracious.

Excellent Villa, close to the beach but protected from the elements when weather not so good. Pool is great for the kids and the villa is fully secure so you can always keep an eye on them. plenty of space to relax and eat, and have a very enjoyable time.

This is a very special Gem in Mauritius. Our family of 5 absolutely love this villa and return yearly. It is always a highlight as the villa is centrally located to the best beach on the island. The owners are very kind and nothing is too much for them to do to make your stay a memorable experience. All areas are excellent equipped and top notch. Excellent linen and good quality beds. Wonderful changes are noticeable annually and this shows the owners personal touch and interest in their business. This villa is surely our second home!!
