Why Sandra & Mark Alix-Brown - Mobile: +447768570717 chose Mauritius North Coast

The apartment is in a small residential complex in the village of Pereybere. It is ideally located, being within a 3 to 5 minute walk from two of the most beautiful beaches on the island with fine white sand and limpid turquoise water. One of them has excellent water sports on offer.

The apartment is in one of the few residences to be so close to these two stunning beaches while also benefitting from a relatively large swimming pool on site. Although this well equipped apartment is self-catering, it is cleaned 5 days a week (included in the price) and for a small fee our lovely French and English speaking housekeeper Marceline can offer home cooked meals to your taste, washing and ironing services. All the rooms are air-conditioned including the living/dining room (not just the bedrooms).

The residence has a lodge at the entrance where the concierge and his wife the caretaker live.

The bus stop is within a minute walk from the apartment, which makes it easy to visit the island for a very inexpensive fare - it can be a little bumpy at times!. For more comfort, the taxi stand is within a 5 minute walk from the apartment.

From Pereybere, there is a wide variety of day excursions to any part of the island, ranging from cultural visits to museums, colonial houses and exotic botanical gardens, to outdoor activities such as trekking/quad-biking/4x4 in forested hills and wild-life safari parks, to water activities such as the under-sea walk, submarine ride, kite-surfing and parasailing.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with the village of Pereybere on the sheltered north coast of Mauritius. It has a local, laid back feel to it and is only a 5 minute bus/taxi ride away to the larger resort town of Grand Baie. Pereybere has a relaxed village atmosphere while offering a great choice of amenities a short walk away from the apartment, including over 10 restaurants serving excellent and varied local and European food, tour operators, scuba diving and water sports centres, a well stocked supermarket, cash points, a pharmacy and doctor, car hire centres, internet cafes, an Ayurvedic spa centre and beach item shops.

The two beaches within a 3 to 5 minute walk from the apartment are fantastic:

- Pereybere's main beach is a little bay, its tranquil waters like a giant swimming pool. There are two restaurants right on the beach as well as several food stalls from which you can enjoy local specialities throughout the day for a small price. The rear of the beach is lined with Filao trees offering good shade while the front is great for topping up your tan. Water sports activities are on offer: glass bottom boat tours, pedalos, kayaks, water skiing and tubing. It's also the departure point for several excursions such as the swimming with dolphins and day trips to nearby islands. West facing, the sunsets on this beach are wonderful.

- The 'Pointe d'Azur' beach is barely frequented and blessed with beautiful views of the small off-shore islands. From this beach, there is a superb walk along the coast for about 4km up to Cap Malheureux with its well known red-roofed chapel and where the local fishermen bring in their daily catch.

Both beaches are among the safest to swim and snorkel in regardless of the season, being on the sheltered side of the north coast and protected behind a coral reef.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sandra and Mark

Sorry this has been the first opportunity we have had to contact you after

the conclusion of what must be the best holiday we have had. The flight

back, unpacking and returning to work has taken up much of any spare time we

have had. Your house was referred to by all as home during our stay which again made

the holiday experience a pleasure. The house as I am sure you know has your

personal touch and sets it apart from the general feel of corporate

apartments. Well done and we would not hesitate to recommend your

house to others and would not hesitate in hiring it again on our next visit

(saving and planning already).

Kindest regards

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday starting with Nanda picking us up at the airport and giving us an informative drive to the apartment.

Marceline who showed us around when we got to the apartment explained where everything was and how it worked.

The apartment is huge has everything you might want in it including a washing machine. We liked the fact it also had a safe and an alarm. Every room also has aircon.

We ate at several of the local restaurants in Pereybere and had a couple of meals in Grand Baie as well. Our favorite restaurant was the Wang Thai 2 minutes walk away the food there is amazing with good service all at a reasonable price and the Vanilla Rum afterwards is to die for. Marceline also cooked us a fish curry one night and that was lovely with huge portions.

There are 2 beaches only a short walk form the apartment and a good-sized supermarket just down the road.

Hired a car as well for 2 days and seen a bit of the island as well.

Thank you Sandra and Mark who were most helpful in any queries we had.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday, the Villas were perfect and in a fantastic location for Winners Supermarket and the beach with a chemist directly opposite.

The Villas were clean,washing machine was a god send, beds huge and comfy, aircon in every bedroom. The master bedroom was HUGE with ensuite and table and chairs, plenty of storage with wardrobes and draws in every room.

Great for a young family with cot and high chair and safety gates at top and bottom of stairs.

Security is 5 star with safe, back to base alarm and deadlocks.

Pereybere Beach is amazing and only a 3 min walk away.

The bus stop is just across the rd and its only a 5 min ride into Grand Bay and only 32rp for adults and 16rp kids. We also caught the bus into Port Louis. The taxi into Grand Bay was only 150rp.

We ate at Pereybere Beach Cafe a few times, and ordered in from Wang Thai once would recommend both , we out in a lot as we were just too tired after our days of exploring and a few times ventured into Grand Bay for dinner.

Marceline was great, and the 2 dishes she made for us were delicious,it was great to come back from a day out to clean floors, beds made and dishes done.

Nanda was waiting at the airport with a big grin on our arrival and boy were we glad to see him! His cars are immaculate and he takes great pride in them.

Herve's day trip was also a great experience, I highly recommend.

We enjoyed a Catamaran trip to Gabriel Island and a speed boat trip to Benitiers Island visiting Crystal Rock and seeing dolphins. We also spent a day discovering the south visiting Chamarel Coloured Earth and Waterfall, Black River Gorge and Casela Nature Park. Visiting the Church at Cap Malheureux is a must it is a beautiful view and only a 10 min bus ride away.

Our 3 weeks went way too fast. We would not hesitate to stay at your Villa's again.

Thank you for being so understanding with all our flight changes, but in the end we didn't have any problems with any of our flight, the transfers or the Villas.

I would not hesitate recommending these Villas to any one and wish I was still there.

Thank you Sandra and Family.

Hi Sandra,

Just a quick note to say thank you and to tell you that we really enjoyed staying in your apartment, it was everything we needed for a family of 5, with plenty to spare.

Your helper, Marceline was very good, special thanks to her.

We would definitely stay there again if we visited Mauritius.

Best regards,


Managing Director
