Villas or houses for hire......?
Save

Hi

I have visited Mauritius just once myself in 2008.... great holiday, still think about it....

However, this post is on behalf of friends of ours who would like to hire somewhere in the north of the island in April 2010. The place would need to have 4 bedrooms and preferably 2 bathrooms and ideally be in the Grand Baie area or somewhere in the north of the island.

This friend used to live in Mauritius many years ago and is now retired and wants to return with her family for a holiday.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation

Hi Nicky,

Atraveo is a good website. You could also type Mauritius Immobilier into Google and that will bring up lots of agents in Mauritius which both sell and rent out. Also try www.jet-7.com

Although Jet 7 deals mainly with properties on the west coast, they do have lots of choice at reasonable prices in quite a few complexes.

We looked around one the other week and can testify they are to a high standard.

Best wishes,

Bronia :)

If you can get a cheap flight OK but we find if we do self catering with just two of us it works out about the same or maybe more expensive. Food and drink prices in the supermarkets are the same as here, and in some cases with imported branded products, more expensive.

Mauritius does not allow charter flights to operate from the UK as it wants to keep the island exclusive, a practice I disagree with. So the scheduled operators have a monopoly and can keep prices high. Tour operators make block bookings and you can get some good bargains going HB at the moment. I have a booking for October for 14 nights HB for under £800 pp. Depends how flexible you are woith hotels etc.

The French get around this by going via Reunion and the Germans often get cheaper flights with Condor.

Flights usually start at over £600 pp and then you add the accomodation and food etc and the bill mounts up. Maybe better for a family or group, but not always the case.

Hi

Good information and advice from Bronia. We also have looked at apartments and villas etc and have concluded it would need a largish party to make it cost effective. The hotels in Mauritius are stunning.

Hi Nicky,

Lots of choice out there. Tell them to look at Trou aux Biches and Mont Choisy in the north west, Perybere in the north and Flic en Flac in the west if they don't mine the west.

Good luck,

Bronia :)
