Cap Malheureux Villa Rental Photos and Description

Comfort, security, quiet environment, services included, pool

Our small corner of paradise is located on the seashore, in the heart of the village of Cap Malheureux, on the northern end of Mauritius Island. Cap Malheureux is a much appreciated seaside resort all year long. For approximately thirty years, we have developed a great experience in caring for the tourists and guests who choose to rent the Villa Serin du Cap or the elegant house for their holidays, and who regularly come back here to enjoy the Cap's sun, the beach, the smiles, the kindness and the extremely good cooking of Jeannette and/or Melina. No roads to cross to reach the beach. Take the small footpath and you will find yourself on a gorgeous beach with an unobstructed view over the Northern Islands. The water is lovely. You will enjoy the quiet and beauty of the setting while being close to the hotels, restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, diving centres, hypermarket, water sports, fishing, etc. For kite-surf lovers, Anse Laraie, one of the most renowned spots of the island, is 5 minutes away by foot.

The Serin du Cap villa and the elegant house are decorated with taste and we are mindful of hygiene and cleanliness. We are regularly renovating to maintain our standing. The villa combines comfort, simplicity and security for an unforgettable holiday with your family or friends. The villa, with its 3 air-conditioned bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, can accommodate 6 people. Baby cot or extra mattress available. For a larger number, it is possible to rent the elegant self-catering house on the same ground (see advert 674245). The house can accommodate up to 4 additional persons.

The terrace of the Villa Serin du Cap is a pleasant living space and offers beautiful views over the sea and the islands (Coin de Mire, Ile Plate, Ile Ronde). A new private swimming pool on the right of the terrace invites you to enjoy rest and idleness! It is fenced: a relief for parents with young children. Barbecue area (with Weber grill) next to the terrace. You can bathe and grill at the same time during summer nights. For television lovers: flat screen TV and Canal Satellite. DVD player and Wi-Fi connexion for the Internet addicts.

The Serin du Cap house, elegant, convenient and convivial is perfect for a couple with children or for two couples. It has two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, double bed air-conditioning, and ceiling fan. Baby cot or extra mattress available. The terrace with garden view serves as a living room to fully enjoy our tropical weather. Deck chairs and Weber grill also available in the garden. The open-plan kitchen, fully equipped, has a TV corner and Canal Satellite channels, a sofa bed, a WiFi connexion.

You will be won over by the greeting and the discretion of the housekeepers, Jeannette and Melina, who will let you taste a Mauritian meal on the house at your arrival. You will enjoy their local and varied cooking full of savours. Put your luggage down and let you be guided and pampered by them. They work from 9 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. every day (except Sundays and bank holidays) but are also available outside those hours for an extra cost. They know how to get you fresh seafood, tasty fish, how to prepare festive meals, babysit the children. Here, welcome is not just a word because we have customers regularly coming back here, some of them for 18 years! We go grocery shopping for you the first time, allowing you to recover from the trip.

The villa and the house are entirely secured with an alarm system linked to a central. We are recorded by the Tourism Ministery. The garden is inviting, well-kept with flowers, and entirely fenced, which is a big asset for parents with young children. A welcome booklet gives you all the necessary information about the excursions as well as the important phone numbers. There is one in each property.

Cap Malheureux is a typical fishing village. Early birds, go down to the beach and admire the pirogues leaving for fishing; the colours are dreamlike. You can walk on the beach along the coast. Do not forget to take the time to watch the sunset with your feet in the sand and an aperitif with accras and islands punch prepared by the housekeepers.

The Cap Malheureux chapel, with its red roof (colour of the Flamboyant tree in summer), one of the most photographed sites of the island, is 3 minutes away by foot. Little shops and vegetable shops accessible by foot. Nearby, the Maison du Pêcheur to buy fresh fish, and next to it, a boules court. The bus stop is 50 meters away; therefore you can use it if you do not want to use a car. A car hire agency will deliver you a car at the house for a democratic price. We arrange, with no additional charges, the first groceries, the airport/house/airport transfers.

Pereybere with a well stocked supermarket is 3 km away. Grand Baie, the hotels, boutiques, banks, restaurants, supermarkets, nightclubs, various water sports, etc is 6km away. Grand Gaube: 7 km. Mont Choisy: 12 km away. Port-Louis, the capital city, is 25 km away. The grapefruit gardens, the Labourdonnais Castle, among other places to visit, are located 15 minutes away by car.

About Regine Le Breton

Born in 1953, married to Jean-Claude since 1975, mother of 2 and grandmother of 2 little boys. I have a long career in the administrative sector and I take a lot of pleasure managing our holiday rentals. I have always had a passion for cooking and truly enjoy meeting and sharing moments around a meal.

Regine Le Breton purchased this villa in 1975

Why Regine Le Breton chose Cap Malheureux

The villa was built in 1974 on a land that has belonged to the family for decades. We lived in this villa at the beginning of our marriage but later decided to come only during holidays; the kids growing up, it was difficult to reconcile studies with the invitation to idleness inspired by this idyllic place. Therefore we decided to share this jewel with people wanting to know this country in a different way. We acquired our reputation through the grapevine and we met a lot of people and friends via theses rentals, not to mention that it allowed us to acquired experience in the hosting sector. We have always been renovating and improving the place for the pleasure of those visiting.

What makes this villa unique

We never get tired of raving about the view of the islands and of this turquoise sea that we can admire from the terrace. The lush nature, quietness of the garden, song of the birds are gifts constantly renewed. All we can do is enlivening all of this with our personal touch: our sense of greeting, sharing, and our desire to do things right.

A beautiful property with every imaginable facility, perfect location with only a few steps to the beach which is very quiet and tranquil. Our maids Jeannette and Janine totally made our holiday taking such amazing care of us. Nothing. Was too much trouble for them and the cuisine they provided was just out of this world. We had meal and delicious chocolate cake on our arrival and on our anniversary we returned after a day out to find a very special meal, dessert and message from Jeannette as she had seen our cards and without a word to us had surprised us with a meal to remember. Regine also visited us twice during our stay to ensure all was going well and brought a wonderful banana tart for us to enjoy. We certainly put on several pounds whilst we were there!!! It is the most beautiful island and our accommodation was perfect. We will certainly be staying with Regine again.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing vacation at this wonderful beach house. Our kids really enjoyed the beach and their pool. We had a very spectacular view of the place. We could'nt ask for more. The best part was the food. We love everything they served. It was worth our money.

Serin Du Cap

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and our two young children have recently returned from a wonderful stay at Serin Du Cap Villa.

This 3 bedroom villa is extremely spacious, with 3 bathrooms. The pictures do not quite show how large this villa actually is! The house is well maintained, extremely clean and well kept. On our arrival we were met by Jeanette, who has worked as a maid at this property for over 30 years. She could not have done more to ensure that we had a wonderful holiday... Our children who are four and one year old adored her! Jeanette comes into the property 6 days a week to clean, cook, do laundry and will also babysit for you should you have children.

The house is full fenced, with a beautiful well maintained fully fenced garden. A swimming pool is being installed into the side of the garden now which will only enhance this property further!

From the garden you have wonderful views of the Indian Ocean. Where we enjoyed to sit and eat our meals together.

Regine (the owner) is so hospitable, and will go out of her way to help you in any way she can... including negotiating car rentals, suggesting day trips, organising transfers to and from the airport, and even organising groceries for your arrival. Anything you need and she is only a phone call away.

Everything you need is within the local area, a short drive away you will find, Restaurants, Bars, Supermarkets, and even access to doctors... We would recommend hiring a car. Driving around the island is relatively easy, and there are lots of lovely beaches to discover.

Would highly recommend this place to anybody wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday in the sunshine!

Owner's Response: It is very encouraging to see that our constant efforts to give a nice and pleasant stay to our clients are appreciated. Indeed, we do our best not only to maintain the standard of the services we offer but we make it a point to upgrade the place every year thus giving more and more comfort to our hosts. We are indeed lucky to have a beautiful beach and a nice swim just some 40 metres from the house with the view on the northern islands, but are sure that the swimming pool with its deckchairs and privacy will give a plus to our property. Hospitality, integrity, security, and being true in our descriptions form part of our Code of Ethics and this recognition is a sort of award for us. Everyone coming to our place has the same treatment so please try, you will not be deceived! We have clients coming back regularly.

Lovely Villa close to the Beach

The description on the website is accurate and Jeanette is a wonderful cook and housekeeper. The home gets cleaned every day and I asked her to come in on the Sundays as well. The free internet and free local telephone calls was a great help to make bookings.

I would recommend the property and Regine the owner was very helpful . It is not on the beach which could be an advantaged because the locals and other holiday makers is not in your face. I had 2 kids there and would have been nice if we could have watched them from the veranda because we could not let them go to the beach on their own.

There are 3 double beds, no twin beds if you have a need for that if you have kids.

But this property is great for couples and the service is fantastic.

I rented a car which was about Rs 900 a day and being from SA , that is the best way to get around! Salim did collect us from the Airport and he is a great driver but taxis are expensive and if you are use to drive on the left side - rent a car.

I would have preferred to pay via paypal or with credit card because drawing cash is always risky and costly.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Serin du Cap. Indeed, we are far too small for credit cards or paypal but we do appreciate bank transfers. We will be most happy to welcome you again and if ever you need additional mattresses for kids we can provide at least two of them.

Séjour chaleureux

Vacances inoubliables

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 4 personnes et avons passé trois semaines de rêve à la Villa Serein du Cap. Les différents échanges avec la propriétaire avant le séjour nous avait déjà séduit.

Par la suite tout a confirmé notre premier sentiment.

La villa est très bien située au Nord de l'île avec une vue à couper le souffle. La maison est extrêmement propre et bien entretenue avec tout le nécessaire.

Jeannette et Jeannine se sont occupées de nous avec une gentillesse extrême et les repas qu'elles nous ont concoctés était sublimes.

Nous sommes fidèles à L'île Maurice depuis plus de 15 ans et c'est une des rares fois ou tout était réuni pour que notre séjour soit inoubliable.

Merci à Régine la propriétaire des lieux, merci à Jeannette et Jeannine nos fées du logis, merci à Salim notre chauffeur.

Peut-être à une autre fois... qui sait.
