About the property

Comfortable 5 bedroom bungalow with en-suite bathrooms.

The villa Poseïdon houses up to 14 persons and is located 150 meters away from the world-renowned red-roofed Cap Malheureux Chapel, which is to be found in all tourist guides, and sits beachfront on the splendid lagoon that unveils its turquoise colors, the ultimate promise of getting away from it all in a cove sheltering local fishermen boats, sailing yachts and deep-sea sport fishing boats. The villa sits leisurely in the best scenery Mauritius has to offer. Your gaze will be drawn by the horizon of the Indian Ocean, the vastness of which is only interrupted by the iconic Coin de Mire. Five minutes walk along the coast will bring you to the splendid Paramé beach with its superb white sand beach fringed by the ripples of the lagoon. The simply decorated Poseïdon villa exudes the pleasant aroma of authentic Mauritian life-style and warm hospitality. Every comfort essential for a pleasant stay is provided and completed by the services of a cook and of a housekeeper. This 5-bedroom villa with en-suite bathrooms is a perfect family holiday villa. The villa is 3.5 kms away from Grand Bay center and every tourist amenity, several diving centers, numerous shops, innumerable bars and restaurants , one hypermarket and two supermarkets are within 10 minutes drive. There is a good bus service in the region.

I own this bungalow and two other villas in Mauritius and I occupy my time renting them to holidaymakers. I also manage the rental of several villas belonging to our family and to close friends, the payments being made to each individual owner. This occupation keeps me active and allows me to socialize with tenants worldwide. I am the proud father of four daughters and the eldest is the one who is with me on my presentation photo. I am a retired Managing Director. My ancestor on the side of my father landed on the island in 1762 and, on my mother's side, I am the eldest of the descendants of the English officer who conquered the island in 1810 from the French. I look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you in Mauritius. See you soon! Francis Masson.

Large villa, scenic, calm, right on the beach location

  • 5 of 5

This large villa met our expectations for a truly scenic and memorable stay! It is right on the beach location. We walked out and took a dip frequently. Sheltered from the wind, right on a marine sanctuary, the location was terrific. It is amazing how shallow the lagoon is. Great for checking out the tide pools and sea creatures on the volcanic sea shelf rocks. The kitchen and staff provided all we needed, the fans in the upper bedrooms were terrific, be nice to have ceiling fan in living areas and vent in kitchen, but the breeze from the sea was effective and the Weber BBQ was great. We went in winter, so sporadic rain and sun was dramatic and pleasant, rain is loud on the roof. Line drying clothes proved more complicated due to rains, but manageable with the washing machine. Ants, bugs, mozzies are real and require bug spray in evening. Every room had its own bath and shower which was really great. Plenty of hot water, use the switch for steady use as solar heated water runs out quickly. Common areas are very casual, not upscale, more functional. Tv was fine, we brought chrome cast which made viewing movies etc easy in evenings. Energy is expensive here. Internet was okay, we all had devices, the usage quality fluctuated but always available. Winners grocery is a mile away, close and easy but car is a must. Lovely vegetables and breads in the area! Convenience store across street with necessities only. Small local public access adjacent villa with large banyon tree and a slow flow of locals visiting Beach area. The church adjacent brought a interesting flow of tourists and wedding parties who took photos and departed since such a scenic location. Fisherman's small boats are docked in lagoon. This was a positive attribute. Off street parking available behind gated access. Very pleasant stay. Northwest coast is so much less windy than east, and especially at this location. Just lovely and protected. Grand bae approx. 1-mile away, has everything you might need for food and supplies. We cooked our meals everyday and had staff provide base meal stuff like rice, dal, cooked veggies and we did the meats. Staff also did all dishes and cleaned house daily. Worked great, but meant preplanning meals and frequent store runs for staff to cook. We had a group of 8 people so this setup worked great. Having help in the kitchen was super duper! We would definitely stay again in this very beautiful location, absolutely scenic, spacious with everything wanted.
