About the property

Welcome to Pingouinvillas, Blue-Bay, Mauritius. Pingouinvillas is located in the Blue-Bay residential tourist area; the South-East of Mauritius Island. It is set-up in a small tropical garden full of exotic flowers under the shade of coconut trees encircled by cool verandahs bordered by fanciful balustrades. Pingouinvillas enjoys an exceptional peace where only the chirping of birds disturbs the calmness in the morning and the area is harmonious with its tropical flora and fauna.

Blue-Bay is 5 kilometres away from Mahebourg: a historical village and one of the main fishing sites on the Island. Pingouinvillas is within 200 metres (3 minutes walk) from the Blue-Bay beach which is the most popular seaside resort in the South of Mauritius with its fine white sand and its peaceful turquoise lagoon surrounded by coral reefs. Pingouinvillas is accessible within 8 minutes drive from the SSR International Airport.

I could live here all year round.

  • 5 of 5

You often read about "home from home" but I can honestly say if our apartment (#5, 2nd floor) was our actual home to live in all the year round I'd be quite happy. It is SPACIOUS, clever architecture, two of the bedrooms and the sitting room also have a balcony, big enough to eat outside. OK some of the furniture isn't great, but it all works and it's fine. You get a cleaner twice weekly included in the price who changes towels and bed linen. Mr Ramjam collected us from the airport in his pickup with all our luggage at no charge. It's a 6 minute walk to the beach (I timed it) and everything feels quite safe. At Blue Bay you can swim from the beach, or take a boat to the far side of the bay (We like Dodo with the blue hat, take snorkelling kit) where it's like swimming in an overcrowded aquarium, amazing. Or walk round the corner to Pointe d'Esny (all beaches are public), at high tide and snorkel carefully over the live coral. We would book again without a moment's hesitation, the best holiday apartment I've ever been in without doubt.

The best place we ever stayed in!

We lived in the 125 m apartment. It was amazing, really spacious, cosy and up-to-date. There was everything we needed (& free wi-fi!). Two of three bedrooms had their own balconies and also there was one large balcony in the living room, covered with palm leaves, sooo nice!! There was bathroom with the toilet and separate toilet, which was very convenient. Rooms were absolutely the same as on their web-site.

Mr. S and other people working there are very-very-very friendly and unbelievably open to all your requests!!

The beach is just 5 minutes walk. Sea there is of such an amazing color! You can walk along the beaches to the north to get to the ones that are not accessible from the road ('cause of the private cottages). Also in 10-15 minutes of walk from the apartment there is a thin road leading to the Pointe d'Esny, very beautiful and isolated beach. In Pingouinvillas can tell you how it's better to find it.

We highly recommend.

Anna St.,

"We enjoyed our stay in Pingouinvillas very much. The accommodation was neat, spacious, also Wifi connection was available there for the whole time and free of charge. The owner was very reliable and disposable. Communication with him was without doubts very good. He picked us up and drove us to the airport in person. You have also a possibility to rent a car from him and drive across the island to enjoy every corner of the island. We definitely recommend it!"
