Cap Malheureux House Rental Photos and Description

comfortable two-bedroom house with bathroom en suite close to the beach and sea

Situated in the heart of the village of Cap Malheureux, this pretty house on the sea side is very comfortable, well maintained and is ideal for a couple with children or two couples. No road to cross, through a private footpath of some 40 metres you have access to a beautiful beach with breathtaking views on the northern island and an excellent bath. This is a detached house with two bedrooms with air conditioning and ensuite bathroom. The small TV area with sofa bed and a fully equipped kitchen are in one piece. The terrace overlooking the garden serves as a living where one can particularly enjoy our tropical climate. Located on the same ground is the Villa Serin du Cap (see advert 6414544), which can accommodate six additional persons (friends or families) . The house has an alarm system connected to a power plant and the garden is fully fenced. The bus stop is 50 meters from the house and it is easy to go to Grand Baie with its hotels, restaurants, shops, banks, casinos, hypermarkets, etc. Services of a maid/cook, Melina, is included and she works every day from 9 to 13 hours (except Sundays and holidays). You will enjoy her mauritian cuisine. Your first mauritian meal is offered by the house. Melina is available outside working hours for baby-sitting, additional cooking, etc. and you can make arrangements directly with her.

About Regine Le Breton

Borne in 1953 and married since 1975 to Jean-Claude. I am now looking forward to a very enjoyable retreat, after 42 years as a Personal Assistant, sharing my time between my family and hosting my dear clients. It’s a real pleasure for me to manage our villas in Cap Malheureux and Pointe d'Esny (the south) and make sure that all those who visit us have a memorable stay in our beautiful country.

Regine Le Breton purchased this house in 1988

Why Regine Le Breton chose North Coast Mauritius

We built this cosy house in 1988 so as to be able to accommodate our families and friends. Thereafter we decided to share this idyllic place to visitors who choose this formula for their holidays. We regularly upgrade and make renovations thus caring for tourists and guests who choose to come to our place and enjoy a peace of mind, the Cape's sun, the beach, the renowned courtesy, kindness and, last but not least, the good Mauritian cooking of Melina.

What makes this house unique

I just quote a review from one of my last visitors:

'HOME AWAY FROM HOME' is the phrase which rightly describes Maison Serin du Cap where we had gone to spend our holidays in Mauritius. It is one of the cosiest and very very comfortable villas we have ever come across. Our host Regine was so good that I do not have words to describe... I can only say I was overwhelmed by her hospitality. She had made sure that there is ample food of all varieties on the day of our arrival so that we do not have difficulty after such a long journey which was a bliss. The Villa is very very cosy and had all the amenities one expects while travelling. I would recommend this villa to everyone who really want to be mentally free and enjoy the holidays without any hangups.'

Cap Malheureux is a typical fishing village. You will enjoy this peaceful place while being close to the hotels, restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, diving centres, hypermarket, water sports, fishing, and all the northern attractions. For kite-surf lovers, Anse Laraie, one of the most renowned spots of the island, is 5 minutes away by foot. Early birds, enjoy watching from the beach the departure of the pirogues leaving for fishing. 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 enjoying an island punch prepared by the housekeepers. Sunset at Bain Boeuf or near our famous Chapel is a must with a camera!

Kevin or Martial are your contact persons for a day tour at sea to the northern island.

Wounderful Place - best Service

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschöner, sehr gut eingerichteter Bungalow (vom Safe, Alarmanlage, Klimaanlage bis zum Haartrockner und Geschirrspüler ist alles vorhanden, was man auch zu Hause gewöhnt ist) - sehr gepflegt und sauber, ganz liebe, aufmerksame und bemühte Hausdame (Melina), die darüber hinaus extrem gut kocht. Störungsfreier, flotter Internetzugang via WLAN ist ebenfalls vorhanden und ein Whirlpool im Garten, der in den Abendstunden vor dem Schlafengehen wundervolle Entspannung liefert, tut das Übrige für den perfekten Urlaubstag. Der Strandzugang ist eine sehr gepflegte Privatstraße von etwa 20 m länge, dann ist man schon am mehr oder weniger privaten Sandstrand, der zum Sonnenbaden einlädt. Das Wasser ist glasklar und die tidenabhängige Meeresströmung gering und absolut ungefährlich (auch für noch kleinere Kinder). Die Lage im Norden der Insel bietet den Vorteil stabilen Wetters - in den 3 Wochen unseres Aufenthalts hat es lediglich 2x geregnet und das nur nachts.

In 3 Minuten ist eine Autobushaltestelle erreichbar, die Busse verbinden den Bungalow mit Perybere (ca. 5 km nächster Supermarkt, Apotheke, Restaurants) und Grand Baie ( rund 10 km Touristenhotspot mit vielfältigen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Bars, Restaurants....) Die Busse verkehren im Halbstundentakt bis 19:30 abends und kosten für die Fahrt nach Grand Baie pro Person 27 Rupies (Stand 12/2015).

Wir können nur sagen: wir kommen 2016 wieder :-))

Séjour très apprécié

  • 4 of 5

Location très fidèle à la description sur le site, très propre, confortable (super literie) et bien située pour toutes visites dans la moitié Nord de l'ile, dans un quartier calme, plage, commerces, à proximité de la villa.

Mélina très chaleureuse est extra, elle fait notamment le ménage, le repassage, et le repas qui nous permet de découvrir la gastronomie mauricienne. Tout est ainsi fait pour que le séjour se passe très bien ce qui a été le cas pour nous.

Merci également à Régine pour ces conseils et contacts locaux pour certaines excursions et location de voiture à bon prix.

Compte tenu de la météo un peu capricieuse en cette fin d'hiver à Maurice et du temps de route relativement long (traversée de Port Louis toujours très délicate), un second séjour se doit d'être programmé pour découvrir plus dans le détail le sud de l'ile avec un point de chute plus central.

Excellent accueil des Mauriciens.

Nous garderons ce séjour longtemps dans notre mémoire.

  • 5 of 5

"Une appréciation tardive suite à un problème technique.

Nous avons passé deux semaines de rêves dans cette belle maison. Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Mélina qui nous avais préparé un succulent repas. Elle a pris soin de nous pendant tout notre séjour avec un grand dévouement en nous lavant notre linge, en faisant le ménage, en nous préparant de délicieux mets. Nous vous conseillons particulièrement la salade de poulpes, le gratin de christophine, les langoustes grillées et les gâteaux de Régine.

La maison est idéalement située, au calme avec une plage peu fréquentée car l''accès est privé. L''équipement de la maison est vraiment complet, il ne manque rien. Pour une sortie inoubliable en bateau à l''Ile Plate, allez voir Martial la Mouette qui habite juste en face de l''église de Cap Malheureux. Nous vous conseillons vivement ce type de vacances qui change vraiment des hôtels.

Merci à vous tous Véronique et Christophe"
