This is the second time I visit this propery in Trou Aux Biches with my family and everything is just as perfect as we remembered from last year. This year we had invited my parents to joins us so we were 3 generations with my parents in the penthouse flat and my family in the large flat in the middle.
The property is located right on the beach and offers a fantastic view over the ocean and a spectacular sunset. Everything is very high quality and kept in a spotless condition both inside and outside.
The apartment is equipped with all the things you could wish for when you are a family and travelling with children. Especially the big gas grill on the terrace is a hit when grilling big steaks or freshly caught tuna.
There is access to a beautiful beach nearby (500m) and it is possible to snorkel on the coral garden right in front of the property. There are also a number of nice beaches further up the coast.
We were warmly welcomed by Maria and Gabrielle. During the holiday we also met both Gabrielle's husband Guy, the security man and the gardener. Marie and Gabrielle were so kind to prepare a carry dish for us so we could get a taste of the local cuisine. They also helped us clean and prepare a large yellowfin tuna that we had caught on a fishing trip. It was a fantastic experience to try the deep sea fishing.
The owner and staff were very kind and helpful in relation to providing good advice on trips and they helped arranging fishing trips with deep sea fishing, different sailing trips with both catemaran and speedboat, renting cars and transport to the airport, etc. It has been a great help for us.
We stayed 3 weeks in this apartment in the penthouse.
Good organized, a big open kitchen with everything you need.
We missed the dishwasher which should be there, but ok.
A small bathroom with big shower, sometimes little preasure, mostly cold, but what do you need in the tropical heat.
A perfect working AC and generator. (Important because of a lot of power stops).
A beautiful big terrace, half with a roof, with spectaculair views.
The staff makes you feel at home. Everyday cleaning , except on Sunday or during a cycloon warning.
The swimming pool on the ground floor has a nice sundeck with good sunbeds and parasols.
After 3 weeks, we lived like Mauritians, and as Guy, didn't worry.
I and my wife visited Mauritius for our honeymoon and stayed at Black Reef Mini penthouse and I must say the apartment is a paradise on its own. The setup is awesome with fully equipped kitchen, huge terrace and a huge double bed with 2 big wardrobe. But the highlight of our stay was magnificent sunset view from the terrace which is hard to miss. The apartment is located just at the end of 'S' bend of the road and all the local shops and restaurants are within a couple of minutes reach. But above all our stay was made memorable by Guy and Gabrielle with their prompt service and polite nature who we can't thank enough.Not only the rooms and property were cleaned on daily basis but Gabrielle helped to prepare breakfast and dinner as well all for a nominal charge. Guy also helped us to arrange for a scooter rental within couple of hours of our arrival. Once again we thank you Glenn for providing us a chance to stay at your apartment and enjoy the best moments of our life. Will definitely recommend stay at your apartment and would certainly love to come back soon. Thanks a lot and god bless.
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!
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
Very well equipped and placed apartment. 10 minutes from main beach, but outside touristic area. Upper floor terrace was magnificent!
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!
