About the property

House, 2 bedrooms, sofa bed, rates for couples. Additional fee for 2 more people

Sunrise cottage boasts an unobstructed view. It is located less than 2 min away from the town hall, shops, the post office, and so on. From the cottage, you can visit everything on foot. The cottage is 27 km away from the airport. To come, you can rent a car at the airport, which is simpler and will give you a lot of freedom. However, upon request, we can meet you at the airport. Furthermore, close to the cottage, it is possible to practice fishing, deep-sea diving, swimming at any time, canoeing, resting under the sun on the terrace leading to the beach cradled by the trade winds, or enjoying stand up paddle. On Wednesday, you can listen to the training sessions of Femmes Ka in front of the cottage. On Saturday morning, one can find a local market less than 2 minutes away. There are merchants offering sorbet, pistachio, coconut sugar, and much more, prepared in the Caribbean way, some days of the week and almost every Saturday and Sunday. The market is lively and reflects the Caribbean spirit. In addition, Le Moule is a historic town in the Caribbean with many places to visit. Why? Firstly, the Gardel sugar factory is the only factory in Guadeloupe. Damoiseau distillery offers the Damoiseau Rhums, which has been awarded many times due to its exceptional quality. The Edgar Clerc Archeological Museum describes and shows vestiges of ancient Caribbean communities. In Le Moule, do not forget to visit Les Grands Fonds viewpoints to discover the mills used during the period of slavery. Finally, visiting the colonial house of Le Moule is a must. Le Moule is the most important city in Guadeloupe due to its commercial harbour. From the cottage, you will see the anchors that support this statement. The cottage is built on the ancient stones of the harbour. Le Moule is a cultural enrichment that is worth a visit.

About Eric Galli

We are Eric and Zina, the friendly owners. We are always available for any request in order to allow guests to have a pleasant stay with us.

Eric Galli purchased this house in 2011

Why Eric Galli chose L'Autre-Bord

The three-star Sunrise Cottage is located on the remains of a historic site dating back to the 18th century. It is a unique place since you will have the privilege of being by the seashore and close to the city centre. Thanks to its decoration (a small Creole garden, fish, frigate birds, hummingbirds, and much more) and the feeling of quietness, you will feel that you are in the countryside. It is a Zen setting!

What makes this house unique

Our terrace under the coconut trees and the sea at the foot of the cottage offer the possibility of swimming at any time.

Sunrise Cottage, directly on the beach

The Sunrise Cottage was the best accomodation we had during our three weeks stay in Guadeloupe!

The cottage is perfectly located in the village Le Moule, everything is in walking distance (restaurants, bakery, supermarkets, nice beach (Plage L'Autre Bord), etc.). You sleep literally above the waves. The terraces (one covered) are for your private use and the reality is even better than the pictures displayed.

The house is very airy, very well equipped and maintained. Kitchen, bathroom, etc. are spotlessly clean.

Eric and his wife are perfect hosts. There was a very warm welcome and also during our stay we felt that they really care about their guests.

Regarding Le Moule: it is the perfect place to stay if you want to discover Grand-Terre (and even Basse-Terre is not too far). It is far less touristy than the south of the island. The beach of l'Autre-Bord (in walking distance) is never crowded and if you prefer the shallow beaches, Sainte-Anne and Port-Louise are just a few Kilometers away.

When returning to Guadeloupe, I would stay here again.

Wonderful time, wonderful place

  • 3 of 5

I felt it necessary to edit my initial review. Not that it wasn't a fabulous place to stay with wonderful views of the sea...but any non speaking French person needs to beware. The owners do not speak English even though they say they do and there were many miscommunications. They have nothing written in English in the home to let you know what their expectations are from the renters and although we felt we were very respectful of the house and left it quite acceptable it seems that the owners were of a very different opinion. In fact it seems they expected us to leave the place immaculate, and although we did clean and put away the dishes and washed the counters they saw it from a very different perspective which ended up with them giving us a very low rating. I was very hurt and disappointed by this, because I always try to be a good guest. So this is my warning for non French speaking people. It is a lovely place and you will love it if you go, but be very careful and make sure you understand everything from the onset.

Owner's Response: I have already had NO FRANCOPHONES NO PROBLEM. IT'S YOU!!!!! I see you have made a 90 degree turnaround. You are resentful and refuse the truth. You forget to mention that you came 5 instead of 4 to 7.30 pm in the lodge Many problems ... with you as soon as the reservation. Your account is marked canceled. And nevertheless, we were kind and patient with you. In giving you all the useful information and you leave from us leaving of the SALETE UNCONCEVABLE .. I have nothing to reproach me.

Tres bonne localisation pour visiter grande terre

  • 3 of 5

Dans la ville mais au calme, tres belle vue sur l'ocean qui est au pied.

Guadeloupe plus authentique que la cote sud.

Accueil chaleureux , Belle corbeille de fruits .

Gite bien équipé mais qui mériterait un petit coup de neuf ( prévu)...

Bonne literie

un véritable remède contre le stress, la dépression,

  • 4 of 5

notre séjour dans votre gite, Eric, fut pour nous un régal, un dépaysement complet, presque hors du temps.

une terrasse surplombant la mer, un patiot comme autrefois plein de verdure et de fruits, un appartement simple, fonctionnel,propre et sympa.

le propriétaire, Eric, une personne toujours dispo, prèt à rendre service, très couleur locale qui adore son ile, enfin, comme on aime!

dommage que l'on est pas eu le temps de voir Madame, sur le continent, à la métropole, et qui devait vous ramener le nouveaux four!

le portail d'entrée surprend un peu, mais une fois refermé et dans le jardin...

Les Gite est parfait, exactement "les pieds dans l'eau", sur la mer, avec une vue merveilleuse, à l'interieur il est bien meublé et bien équipé et complète le tout un terasse "dans la mer" pour jouir au plein du soleil, de la mer, de l'air et de la nature caraïbe ( les palmiers de coco sont vraiment dans le jardin du gite) Les propriétaires ont été super disponibles et gentils soit avant que pendant le séjour, ils nous ont donné aussi tous le conseilles pour visiter au mieux l'ìle et ils ont toujours été présents pour chaque nécessité.

Nous ne pouvions pas nous attendre una lieu meilleur pour séjourner en Guadeloupe!
