“Paradise”
Reviewed 26 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Wonderful penthouse apartment with a large deck set in a canopy of trees overlooking the beach and the sea. The one bedroomed apartment is well equipped and furnished. The shared garden and pool are beautifully manicured and maintained and the premises are extremely secure and serviced daily by Gabrielle and her team.
The location is towards the southern end of Trou aux Biches which has some excellent restaurants and a good supermarket. The sea at the house is rocky so not ideal for swimming but great for snorkelling. The main sandy beach is just a short walk away but the next beach a shot distance to the north, Mont Choisy, is one of the best on the island. A hire car is recommended to allow exploration of Grand Baie, the Botanical Gardens, Ile aux Cerfs, the Black River Gorge and the Trou aux Cerfs volcanic crater.
A wonderful place to stay on an amazing island paradise!

“Huge Balcony on the Penthouse!”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Good location, great for sunsets. Clean, modern apartment, stairs can take some getting used to; I recommend the lower floors if you have trouble negotiating stairs. Also very private and secure apartment

We stayed for a week in the First Floor apartment, which in our view represents a far better experience than the photos show (these were either first or second floor). Either way, the location is quite perfect- right in the beach which although not a straight up sandy beach it offers brilliant snorkelling and the best sunset views in the world. Bar none. The pool is impeccably maintained on s daily basis, as are the gardens. The flat itself was unbelievably luxurious and ridiculously comfortable (the pillows are just insanely good?!?!?!!). The place is cleaned every day to a very high standard. Best bits: the incredible three-burner BBQ, the walk-in showers, the beds (did I mention the pillows?!?), the balcony and its huge relaxing/entertaining area WITH sunset views, the pool, the security (locked gate and cameras everywhere... not that you need them at all!), the pillows and the pillows. We couldn't recommend this place enough.

Anne was delightfully on hand to organise a deep sea fishing trip one morning: three Bonitos and four Dorados. And an early start!

We enjoyed a month at black reef and was very pleased with the apartment. The pool, sunbeds and garden were kept immaculately and staff were very helpful.

Its a stroll into the village with a supermarket, fruit stalls and a few restaurants.

The only slightly annoying thing we had was a barking dog from a house behind which woke us up a few nights not that we could expect our apartment owners to do anything about though.

Spacious top floor unit on the beach. Large fully equipped kitchen. Glen will advise you on the best street food stalls in the area. If you don't feel like the 10min walk to shezpopo and main beach take the bus(18rs).Go fishing on Glens boat Namlamer witch is equipped to catch marlin and game fish.
Book early. Don't miss out on this gem

We returned to Mauritius for our 40th wedding anniversary & while things have naturslly changed in that time, this accommodation & its location were ideal. This top-floor, one-bedroom apartment has all modern conveniences: large, comfortable bedding, air-conditioning, lounge, outdoor furniture with bbq, fully-equiped modern kitchen. The enormous balcony/pergola & the manicured lawn area of the inground-pool with sun-lounges, both overlook the beautiful waters of Trou aux Biches. Everything is well maintained & clean. The situation is perfect if you wish to eat out as there are several restaurants & cafes with delicious fresh foods within 5 minutes walk. If you prefer to self-cater, as we did on a couple of occassions there is a small but well-stocked supermarket just a 10 minute walk away. We considered hiring a car but found the local bus service convenient (a 5 minute walk to the bus stop), cheap as chips & entertaining as well as a great way to see the local areas & mix with the very friendly, happy locals. Glenn & his wife Ann were willing & able to help arrange airport transfers for us; the housekeeper, Gabrielle, was delightful & also very helpful as she organised a driver & car to ferry us around one day to some of the more remote sights. Fabulous service! All in all, this 2nd honeymoon exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.
