Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent séjour à la résidence Les Orchidées à Flic en Flac

Votre expérience:

Nous avons était très bien accueilli et conseillé par Mr Bala dans le très bel appartement de Mr et Mme Carpen.

Appartement très agréable à vivre, de plein pied très bien agencé, bien équipé (nous aurions aimé un grille pain pour le petit déjeuner du matin ....sourire) très bien entretenu par une dame Mauricienne aussi sympathique qu'efficace.

La résidence est surveillée par des gardiens serviables, efficaces et d'une grande gentillesse.

La piscine est magnifique et très propre bien qu'elle soit entourée de palmiers.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location et espérons y retourner 2 mois l'an prochain .

Perfect place for relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

In June 2017 we spent 2 weeks in this well equiped, comfortable apartment, enjoyed the pool round the corner and the short distance to the ocean (5 minutes on foot)

The apartment offers all you need for some relaxing holidays and is situated perfectly, so you can reach all the interesting parts and sights of the island within short time.

We will come again! Thank you Manda and thank you Blala for your help.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a nice complex, not too noisy, and very clean (cleaner visits twice a week). The apartment is very well equipped, spacious and the air con in the bedrooms is a God send! Nice to be on the ground floor, though not directly by the pool which meant that it was peaceful. The pool is a good size and we often had it to ourselves. Security staff manned 24 hours which was reassuring (and useful if we had any local queries!). Short walk to local shops.

We would definitely stay here again (and we have stayed at a number of places in Flic en flac over the years).

Useful points to note - the wifi is limited and ran out after 10 days (but we are heavy users). Also, if you don't want cockroaches to fly in, keep your outer doors and windows closed after dark (and buy some cockroach spray to zap them if you do - this was the only time we saw cockroaches which are common in Mauritius).

Tourist tips - we visited Casella and petted lions (well worth a visit). Snorkeling is good at Flic en flac beach (go to the end near the Spar) but if you want an even more amazing snorkeling experience, visit Blue Bay Marine Park - amazing!

Thanks Ravin and Manda (and special thanks to your brother who waited for us to arrive when we were delayed) :)

Owner's Response: Hi Dil and family Thank you so much for your very positive feedback and review of our apartment. Glad that it suited your needs for a great family holiday. Clients reviews help us to make improvements needed for a comfortable and stress free stay. My brother has already sorted out the Wifi speed, but unfortunately as Mauritius is a tropical island We are unable to control the insects however much we try. Thank you for the Tourist Tips which will be very useful for our future guests. Hope to see you again soon. With thanks Manda

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Manda was easy to contact and communications was swift, she helped with any queries I had prior to departure. I Arrived at apartments and was greeted by Bala, a really friendly guy who showed us around the apartment and how to operate TV , Wifi and the Water Heater. The apartment is full kitted out with a Flat screen TV and cable, I found the Wifi to be really hi-speed and streaming was easy. The kitchen has everything you need, and there is also an iron and iron table. Made good use of the swimming pool and Flic en flac beach and restaurants are only 6 mins walk away, plenty of off road car park space, both the apartments and car park are monitored 24/7 by on site security guards. The apartment is air conditioned and also has accordian steel grilles as added security and internal safes which are free. You can also use the landline telephone for local calls free. There is a maid who comes 2 times a week and keeps the apartment spotless. Plenty of charge points for iphones/ laptops / camcorder batteries. If you are looking for UK standard apartment with all your UK essentials in Mauritius, this apartment is for you. I would definitely use these apartments again and recommend. Thanks Manda & Ravin for great service and apartment.

Des vacances rêvées..

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une super semaine dans cet appartement, près de la grande plage de flic en flac, près des commodites. L'appartement est grand même trop grand pour nous 2 adultes et 2 enfants (3 ans et 1an). Il est équipé d'une baignoire BB d'une chaise haute et d'un lit BB. Nous avons profitez pleinement de la piscine le seul jour de pluie et tous les autres jours en rentrant de la plage. Merci à la femme de ménage qui a étendu notre linge..! Et merci à Ravin et Manda Carpen pour avoir répondu à toutes nos questions avant le départ.

Wonderful days at Les Orchidees in Flic en Flac Mauritus!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented an apparent in Les Orchidees for 10 days. We had a wonderful stay over Christmas and we spent many hours at the long white beach 150 meters from the house. But since we are pale Swedes we were also very grateful for the beautiful pool in Les Orchidees. There we could have a quick bath when we needed. The apartment was very clean, well furnished and fully equipped and had two nice bedrooms with separate bathrooms . We cooked in the nice kitchen and hade most of our dinners out at the terrace outside the living room. Some evenings we went down to the street along the beach and had dinners at an Chinese restaurang. The apparent and the garden was Christmas decorated so we did´t miss our Christmas tree and the snowy winter at home.

Now we are back again in Sweden with - 10 degres, but we look back to our wonderful vacation with lots of joy.

Thank you Manda for giving us all the information in advance so we felt secure and also a big thank you to your brother Bala that greeted us when we came and helped us with all our question. We hope we can come back next year! We can really recommend your apartment to friends and relatives!
