About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 6

This brand new contemporary villa sits directly on an idyllic private white sandy beach – among the best of the island - fronting one of the most beautiful turquoise lagoons of Mauritius. It is located in an unspoilt and authentic area of the island, rich in history – yet close to local amenities – and is ideal for nature lovers and ecotourism. From the beach, you can admire the dramatic surrounding mountains and neighbouring small islands, including Aigrettes Island, a nature reserve for very rare birds and endemic plants. The villa was recently renovated and decorated to a high standard, with all modern amenities, and is spread over three floors. The ground floor features a lounge dining room, which opens out to a terrace overlooking the beach, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a utility room. The first floor comprises two ensuite double bedrooms with an adjoining terrace opening onto the beach and the sea and 2 further bedrooms: one with 2 single beds and the other with a bunk bed. The spacious master bedroom and bathroom span over the 2nd floor. It opens on to a terrace where you can enjoy panoramic views of the lagoon. Above all, the villa and its location combine to offer a tranquil environment especially for those looking to experience the real beauty of Mauritius free from commercial influences.

The maid is at your disposal should you wish to sample traditional Mauritian dishes.

Guests may also gain access to some of the leading 5 star hotels’ restaurants.

Departure for full-day / sunset / dinner cruises on catamaran is from nearby places.

To explore the island at your own pace, chauffeur-driven car may also be arranged at extra cost.

Highly recommended, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 14 nights in October 2009. Overall we would highly recommend this villa for both couples and families looking for a relaxing, peaceful and affordable holiday in Mauritius.

The villa is in an excellent location in Mauritius on one of the few private beaches left that aren't take up solely by large hotels. You have a private strip of beach which is very quiet, particularly on weekdays there is almost no one else there. If you are looking for a peaceful beach holiday the villa is perfect. There is also opportunity to do watersports at nearby resorts if you are more active.Mauritius is very easy to travel around, particularly with the new motorway, so you can either hire a car or hire a driver to take you around the island to do sightseeing.

The maid service is excellent - apart from cleaning and laundry you can also have your lunch prepared for you if you buy the ingredients and the quality of cooking is excellent. The supermarket and local market is nearby to by both local and imported food and wine. This saved us a lot of money!There are also very good, affordable restaurants in the area, including la belle kreole which offers a pick up and drop off service.

The owner of the villa is very welcoming and friendly and will meet you from the airport. The villa is very spacious and comfortable and very secure, with a safe and good security system.

We had a wonderful holiday and highly recommend this villa.

Beach Front Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfect for a relaxing holiday as it’s on the beach front. The owner was very helpful when we arrived. The Maid Denise comes in every day she cooks and cleans she is very friendly and give good advice. For the first three days we had a cyclone but that did not spoil our holiday. Mahebourg is very near by you can get a bus from outside the villa and do all your shopping the best day is on a Monday when the big market is open.

Beach Front Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located on the beach front on the outskirts of Mahbourg. We contacted the owner prior to renting the villa and we recieved very friendly advice and informative emails. The villa was very clean, a cleaner and a maid came every day who were very friendly. This location is ideal for a family who like peace and quite and a relaxing holiday. As Maurituis is in the southern hemisphere it is prudent to go when the weather is at its best, we went in August the weather wasn't the best, it can be quite windy at this time of the year, however it didn't spoil our holiday that much. Overall we had a very nice relaxing time and I would recommend this villa.

Bonheur Total

  • 5 of 5

Quel bonheur ces quelques jours passés dans la villa. Endroit idéal pour des vacances reposantes dans cette région de l’île qui reste l'authenticité même de Maurice.

Denise a été adorable et nous la remercions encore pour sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité et ses qualités de cuisinière. Babou nous a régalé avec ses poissons et Jean-Marc nous a fait découvrir encore des merveilles.

Nous y reviendrons certainement

Un séjour inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

Une maison très agréable et très fonctionnelle.Lieu idéal avec des enfants.Possibilité de voir avec masque et tuba de très beau poissons sur la plage vers la gauche;nous avons pu observer pleins d'étoiles de mer le matin.

Vacances inoubliables aussi par l'excellente cuisine de Denise. Elle nous a cuisiné une cuisine typiquement mauricienne avec les poissons frais que nous a apporté Babou tous les matins ( pieuvre, calamars, capitaine....)Rien que d'y penser, nous en salivons encore.

Denise est une personne d'une gentillesse et qui se met en 4 pour nous rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible.

Coin très tranquille .

Si nous avons l'occasion, nous reviendrons dans la maison de Monsieur Rivalland.

Vivement le prochain séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Date du séjour, novembre 2012… mais aussi novembre 2011, 2010, 2009 et 2008 ! C’est dire si l’on se sent bien à la Villa Emeraude, comme chez soi à vrai dire. Et cela grâce à l’accueil très attentionné, chaleureux, mais toujours discret de Robert et Maita, les propriétaires de cette maison charmante et agréable, sise en un lieu magique. Calme, tranquillité, plage de rêve. C’est ce que nous recherchons et que nous avons trouvé à Pointe d’Esny. Et pour combler encore davantage les heureux vacanciers, il y a Denise qui prend soin de la maison, mais aussi de ses hôtes et qui vous mijote une magnifique cuisine locale. Il est difficile de quitter ce petit paradis et on rêve bien vite d’y revenir.

Donc certainement à bientôt et merci à vous !
