Found in the heart of authentically Mauritian hamlet of Cotteau Raffin, La Gaulette, Le Morne is a UNESCO World heritage site of outstanding natural beauty this location is hard to beat !

This location is not a peace & quiet away from it all experience...The pace of life is slow here but this truly Mauritian village is often pretty lively and noisy!! Musicians can be heard getting together in the evening and playing Sega music. Dogs bark (especially at night) cockerels crow, locals greet each other on the street. The baker will toot his horn early morning and evening to get his customers attention ( which saves going to the supermarket!) The local school children are picked up at 7am the day starts early for the villagers here !

About Trish & Kev

We built this place. We have always dreamed of creating a beautiful place we would enjoy staying in ourselves...Kev is a native born Mauritian and myself (Trisha) am English. We frequently travel, we love hotels and wanted to create a hotel feel. We are a romantic couple and wanted to create potential for romance in the outside and inside spaces. We poured our love for this beautiful environment into every nook and cranny and want to express love through this building to our guests.

We now live in Mauritius. Formerly a personal trainer in London I am also a practitioner of A Course in Miracles ( spiritual psychology ) Kev and I created much of the fixtures and designed our properties and we work together.

We believe that Love is the most important driver of our business, and hope to benefit the local community that is the face of our place and that our guests feel loved by this property and its environment

Trish & Kev purchased this apartment in 2015

Perfect for any length of stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a little over 2 months in Mauritius and while our original booking with Trish and Kev was only for a week, we ending up booking our entire stay with them. So we were lucky enough to stay in a number of their apartments, all of which are perfect for any length of stay. All of them are equally lovely!

To start, their property is easily in the best area of the island. It’s a safe and quiet residential community. After much exploration and hearing the opinions of other guests, We wouldn’t suggest staying far from Le Morne beach. You’re a short drive to the most beautiful beaches of the island as well as a fully stocked grocery store. I will say that a car is a must though, as you’ll undoubtedly want to explore the rest of the island. Luckily you can rent a car from Trish and Kev!

The apartment is simple, but lovely. Tastefully decorated with natural tones, there’s more than enough space for two. You’ve got a large closet with a safe to hold your valuables, a bathroom much larger than typical American bathrooms, and AC should you choose. We opted for the sea breeze, sleeping with our patio doors open every night. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook yourself. If you can’t find something, just ask! Or if you prefer to eat out, there are a number of restaurants worth visiting close by. The cleaning ladies do a wonderful job of keeping the place spotless. No matter which apartment you’re in, you have a lovely private terrace for breath taking views of the sunset. For the sunrise, be sure to head up to the roof deck one morning for a full view. Dinner up there is lovely as well.

Internet was a priority since we work remote. We had a few hiccups, which were addressed immediately so we were able to work without interruption. Before leaving, the town north of here was getting fiber optic cable, so surely it will be available here soon.

As for activities outside of the apartment, Trish and Kev are a wonderful resource, happy to help research and book any type of excursion, from a private beach dinner to swimming with dolphins.

I can’t recommend this place enough! You’ll be extremely pleased with yourself. Trish and Kev made our stay wonderful by not only being wonderful and thorough hosts, but lovely people. We hope to visit our friends again soon!

Accueil sympathique dans un lieu qui l’est tout autant.

  • 4 of 5

L’accueil des propriétaires qui vivent sur le site est très sympathique. Leur proximité permet d’avoir des échanges réguliers pour mieux organiser le séjour et bénéficier de leurs connaissances. Le studio est pratique et spartiate dans l’esprit minimaliste qui est décrit. La voiture est absolument nécessaire. Les plages ne sont pas accessibles sans voiture. Ne pas hésiter à aborder les habitants de ce village de pécheurs qui sont très accueillants.

Bon séjour.

Nice apartement in quiet environment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed ith my boyfriend in one of the studios for 8 days in the end of september. The booking was uncomplicated and fast. The studio was like you can see on the pictures, spacious, clean and the rooftop was amazing to relax. Trish and Kev are one of the most friendly persons we've ever met, they made us proposal for trips around their place, suggestions for restaurants and supermarkets. The only difficult thing is that you really need a car when you stay at the island (especially in the south) because of the bad pubplic transportation system.

We enjoyed our stay and we recommend the studio for everyone.
