Thank you to Agnes and Ken for being very friendly and welcoming hosts for our wonderful stay in a clean, family-friendly and secure environment. This fully contained apartment is close to the beach, in a quiet part of Black River, Mauritius. Has everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. Agnes and Ken are extremely helpful and knowledgeable with advice on places to visit and instructions on how to get there. It is close to restaurants and supermarket, banks etc. A wonderful experience with house cleaning every day.

My family and I had a fantastic time during our stay here!
The apartment is so beautiful - spacious, comfortable and relaxing with a great pool and awesome beachfront location. We enjoyed some amazing sunsets from the property. Close proximity to supermarkets, shops and a nice italian restaurant.
Agnes, the owner was wonderful; making us feel so welcomed, giving us great advice and helping in any way she could. We felt like part of the family.
We did not want to leave.

“THE BEST VACATION EVER,EVER...WE CAME BACK FOR SHORE”
Reviewed 7 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

This a direct report from Olana Beachfront Apartment...its our last day in Paradise.So we are sitting on the veranda,looking over the beutifull pool and garden to the beach,sea and bay.From the first day that Ken pick us at the airport till today...its like a dream.
When we read all the reports of the guests before us...we decided at once.And it was worth it.
The hospitality from Agnes and Ken...all their advices and informations help us to find Mauritius in the most colorfull and different prospections.They were allways there when we need help...but always with biiiiiig smile on their faces.Its like if you come to vacations to some good friends.
The Olana Apartment is very beatifull and equiped with all you ever need....just like to be in our own house.I will not spend more words about the house ,because there is every detail puted in with love and soul....like that somebody build it for themself.And it was really like that.
At the first day I forget the shut the lights off on the La Morne beach...so our battery died.We couldnt start the car....but we managed to came home with some Slovenian couple which was also there at the time.We call Ken˛&Agnes and they come in the middle of the night to help us with the car....we drive there and start it with the cables.....and they were just smiling.On the way back I was stopped by the police patrol...without driving licence....so again Ken ˛&Agnes drive back to Olana House to pick my licence and came back....again with a biiiig smile.
THANK YOU BOTH SO MUCH FOR ALL.
I have to stop writing now because we are still here in that Paradise...last day in Paradise.
So we have to go to the beach...
We are happy to be here and we were BE BACK FOR SHORE.
We could write more and more...but we dont have time and words to describe....just THE BEST....1000%

We were an extended group with 2 under 1 years and 1 over 81 in our number. The apartment was beautifully appointed and a very comfortable base. Agnes and Ken were extremely helpful -getting s an extra cot and high chair as we have twins - and generally do all they could to ensure we had a great holiday.

Liked best: The view was lovely and having a daily maid made it a real break for me
Liked least: leaving! Not really a negative but with an un-fenced pool you had to be very vigilant with the kids

“A memorable and luxurious stay!”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

My family and I had an amazing stay at these beautiful luxury apartments. We stayed here for two weeks and were sad to leave. We were greeted by the most friendly hosts Agnes and Ken, we left Olana feeling that we have made new friends in Mauritius.

Everything is clean and new. You get very friendly and warm housekeepers, who provide you with clean towels everyday, you get a gardener to cut fresh coconuts for you, you get a night guard to ensure you are safe, (although it is a very safe and a secure place), you get a skipper for your excursions which includes dolphin watching, snorkelling, breakfast and a BBQ lunch, you get the best tour guides that provide great information and you get great Mauritian chicken curry made by sweet Sabrina!

Olana is located on the best part of the island, you are very close to the main attractions. You are near a great mini supermarket “Food Lovers”, (miss those delicious hot croissants and fresh smoothies). You are very close to restaurants, supermarkets, banks and right on the beach.

We were given brilliant tips and advice whilst we were in Mauritius and we enjoyed hearing Agnes’ and Ken’s stories. They even got a birthday cake for our 4 year old daughter which was very kind and generous. She thoroughly enjoyed her birthday on Ken’s boat watching the dolphins and was always pleased to see Agnes. Agnes and Ken are always available, they are a phone call away should you need them. We just called them to come over for a coffee and a chat!!

Our daughter enjoyed the gorgeous pool and we all loved the stunning sunset along the beach. We are so glad we stayed at Olana and not in any other hotel on the island. You get your privacy and its relaxing. You don’t only get a room with a bathroom like you would in a hotel, instead you get a spacious apartment, 3 bedrooms all with their own ensuite showers, seating areas inside and outside, a big kitchen and utility room, your own parking space and a pool!

One simply cannot find anything negative about the hospitality and this superb accommodation. It has everything you need. It is ideal for families or a big group of friends. Staying at Olana made our visit in Mauritius most memorable. I award Olana 10 out of 10!!!

Thank you Agnes and Ken!
