Subject: Holiday

Hi Michel

Sorry for not contacting you before, catching up is my only excuse.

Paul, mother and I would like to thank you very much for allowing us to use your apartment for the holiday. We had a wonderful time.

The journey, both ways were excellent. No problems at all. The flight out seemed to take a lot longer though. Journey back was far better and we arrived on time even though we were in a stack to land at Heathrow.

Primrose is a gem. what a lovely lady she is. so kind, generous and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her

The apartment beautiful. So spacious and comfortable. We immediately felt right at home.

You were right about the immediate area. The shop was at the end of the road, ideal for fresh bread every morning and the restaurants the same, perfect to help walk off the beautiful food.

We went to the restaurants you suggested and the one at the end of the road. Bois Nior was by far the preferred choice though. Thank you for that advice.

We managed, with Primrose's help, to see the dolphins, and had a lovely day at sea.

We managed to get a hire car, in which time we toured as much of the island as we could. Mother was in raptures about the scenery. The island more than lived up to her expectations (as it did for us all). Although we saw quite a bit it was only a glimpse at best which has left us with a thirst for more.

Paul managed to get in his deep sea fishing. He shared the trip with one other couple .Paul managed to catch 2 large tuna, so was a very happy chappie indeed. For me, I took up snorkeling, Paul teaching me his diver skills, and managed to see some beautiful fish, including a pipe fish.something I had seen in tanks but not in the sea. Paul was much braver than I and went out a bit further and found a lion fish and swam with a turtle.

His snorkeling was made. Only problem was he was unable to record these events. Guess what's on the Xmas pressie list this year - an underwater camera.I have to sincerely thank you all for the chance of this fantastic holiday. For me I had the pleasure of seeing my husband, happy and relatively free from pain, relaxed and thoroughly enjoying himself and a mother in law who was extremely happy with her lot. Comfort, good food and plenty of it (mum assures us she doesn't eat a lot - but you know what Bois Nior serves up and her plate was empty). What's the saying my belly's full and my heart is glad.

Now for the crunch. Please, please, please, can we go again? We all fell in love with the island and would love to go back next year. If this is possible, we really would like to go again and really explore.

Again many, many thanks for the opportunity and we are really grateful to you. We have many pictures but have the scope for many more.

Jean

About Michel Limpinnian

I have subscribed to Home Away over 10 years and I understand the needs of holiday makers and I always try and make sure they have a very comfortable stay . This is reflected in the very positive reviews received .

I reside in UK and visit my property regularly . I also have a house manager in Mauritius who takes care of the guests

Why Michel Limpinnian chose Safeland

This is an spacious property and very well designed . It have a great garden and the swimming pool is among the largest in the country and also has a baby/children pool The newer properties tend to be much smaller with very small pool . My apartment face directly to the pool and in a great position and from there you can observe practically everything especially supervising the children if they are in the pool

The close access to the beach , supermarket and shops makes it an ideal location

What makes this apartment unique

Spacious , even with 6 persons , you never feel cramped inside or outside . As you walk in , you get the sense of being at home and also feel relaxed .The apartment is very well equipped

Our week in Mauritius

  • 5 of 5

I didn't want to write a review because if I'm honest about how good it was, everyone will want to go and it'll be booked when we want to return! The apartment was very clean and kept so by a maid who visits 3 times a week. It was well equipped with a large fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, aircon in each of the 3 bedrooms etc. My own favourite features were having 2 bathrooms and the swimming pool just outside. I was in the pool every morning, usually I had it all to myself.

Often these places don't look so good in real life as in the pictures but this was better than the pictures! The rooms were all larger than I had imagined. The weather was perfect, not too hot and not cold. It rained sometimes but usually at night. We tried the Bois Noir restaurant that was recommended. We had to wait a while for our food but when it arrived it was very good and the main course and a beer only cost about £5 each. The only negative things I can say are that there were occasional power and water cuts but this was general to the area and not the fault of the apartment. It didn't seem to cause a problem though and I can certainly recommend le Dattier for it's comfort, pool and local facilities. The beach is just down the road, white sand, bits of coral, turqoise sea and because it's in the west, sunsets over the sea. Yes, we'd like to go back!

Nice apartment in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this apartment which had every facility you could need. The pool was excellent, and just a small stroll to the beach. We where very impressed with Michal and how quick he was to answer any questions had, also Primrose who greeted us on our arrival, who also helped to arrange day trips and also our taxi transfer on leaving.

Very nice apartment close to the shops and sea. Well secured and cosy

  • 3 of 5

Apartment was brilliant. Only thing which I found non professional is imposing me to a specific time for cleaning especially coming from abroad and have to wake up at 9am. The rest was great, perfect clean location and nice swimming pool.
