Clean, Quiet and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed there before, and enjoyed our stay, I decided that this would be a fantastic place to back to. The owners had already arranged for any assistance we may have needed. The security staff were always on hand as well to assist with anything. They were able to recommend places to visit. There are some very beautiful beaches nearby, only 10 to 15 minutes drive away. Enjoyed our stay and hope to go back there again.

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

What a clean and comfortable property.

Had a fantastic two week stay. The pool is only one minute walk. Some unsual birds visit the garden. The sea is only one minute walk away. Ok, so it's a bit rocky and slippery, but turn left and walk a couple of hundred yards and you find a small sandy bay where you can bathe. Other beaches are only a short drive away. Go to the east and there are more beaches to visit. Port Louis is easilly accessible by a fast road. Have stayed on the west side previously. This is by far the best. Best location to explore the country. Will stay there again. Good view of Coin De Mire. Highly reccomend you take binoculars and see it. In the evening you can sit on the bences only a few feet away from the sea and listen to the waves. Enjoyed our stay very much.

A fantastic, relaxing and peaceful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a truly fantasic week! The villa was extremely relaxing, it felt like a second home straight away. It was very well equipped and the cousin, Selvon who welcomed us was really lovely. The grounds were so peaceful and private. The Villa was very well maintained as were the grounds and pool. There is plenty to do near by with lovely restaurants and magnificent beaches only 10 minutes drive away. The flowers in the grounds were in full bloom, it was a picture post card view!

I will certainly be returning next year, thankyou Villa Nicolenna

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This clean and well maintained property is in an excellent location right by the sea.This detached villa is in a complex with 42 other villas, and the gounds are immaculate and beatiful. It has a communal pool but we used it 2 days and were the sole occupants. It is close to perybere public beach which has shops and restuarants on the beach and Grand Baie is only 15 minutes away by car. Mon Choisy beach is an excellent sandy beach about 20 minutes away with sun beds and a good swimming area. Several boat trips can be arranged from Mon Choisy and Grand Baie but be careful to haggle for a good price. The security staff and gardeners in the villa complex are extremely helpful and friendly and can give you much information about local places to eat and visit. L'Adelita restaurant in Perybere serves excellent european cuisine at a very reasonable price, Steve (Mrs Linneys cousin) oversees the villa and is also very knowledgeable about the local area and customs and is helpful and friendly. We had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this villa to anyone.

Splendid Stay In Mauritius!

  • 5 of 5

Having booked carhire prior to arrival, we arrived at Villa Nicolenna to meet a very friendly and informative representative, who showed us to the villa and the amenities. The grounds were beautiful and well kept and back right on to the sea. The pool was always very quiet and everyday we used it we were the sole occupiers. The villa owner had said that the villa furniture had been upgraded recently and the accommodation was well equipped with comfortable furniture. We opted for more frequent maid service and the Villa was in excellent condition. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was a real bonus and helped us sleep at night. The large Tesco-equivalent supermarket is in Grad Baie which is about 10-15 mins away depending on traffic - there are smaller places closer which carry essential supplies (just outside the complex entry road). The large supermarket was all that we tended to use as we were able to purchase everything in one go. There isnt a beach at Villa Nicolenna that you can bathe on, and we tended to explore various beaches as we dont like staying put for too long in one spot!. Our favourite beach was Perybere which takes about 10 minutes to get to following the coastal road. I am glad we had a car as it meant we could explore the whole island with ease. Will definitely be going back to Mauritius and Villa Nicolenna next year and will be taking our friends with us.

Best spots: Perybere beach and cafe, Chinese restaurant in Grand Baie (excellent seafood!), Port Louis market, Vanille Crocodile Park and the nature reserves on the island.

Lovely property except...

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a very beautiful (isolated) location, the gardens are well kept and the pool very inviting. However the sea that it is so near to, is not a swimming beach. You definitely need a car and would have to drive atleast 20minutes to the nearest swimming beach, (which proved awkward with a toddler) and also the supermarket is atleast a 20minute drive away too. The owners cousin met us there, and was extremely helpful and kind. The property was very spacious and well kept.

Situated on the northern coast of Mauritius, a stone's throw away from Grande Gaube, Villa Nicolenna looks out across the spectacular waters of the Indian Ocean. Some of the surrounding islands including Cap Malheureux highlight the sky line from the extensive tropical gardens. Excellent location for shops, restaurants and local attractions. Villa Nicolenna is set in tranquil, secure surroundings. Transfers to/from the airport can be easily arranged and local transport links are good. Port Louis, Mauritius' capital lies 30 minutes away from the villa where you can explore the traditional markets, take advantage of the duty, be entertained at Caudan Waterfront complex and sample the culinary delights Mauritius has to offer.
