We are really happy to write this review about the apartment and Mauritius as well.
First of all if you are looking for a destination with great weather, beautiful ocean and amazing people Mauritius is a right place for you! We always hoped that such a place still exist in the world where people great you with a smile in their face only because they pass around you! We really loved that!
As for the Pereybere it is a nice holiday village with good restaurants serving thai, chinese and creole food, several bars, internet cafes, travel agencies, ATM machines, some boutiques and big supermarket called "Winners" where you can buy really everything you might need. It is ideally located about 100 meters from the apartment (it is great for buying the freshly baked baguette every morning :) Pereybere is also known for its beautiful turquoise lagoon where you can swim almost like in a pool. We have a small baby so we couldn´t think of a better place. Yes it can get a bit crowded during the weekends but it is nice to see how locals spend their weekends by the sea. On the other side of the apartment there is a loooong stretch of so called private beaches where you can relax without the crowds. Apartment is equipped with the lightweight sun chairs and umbrella which you can take along with you to the beach.
As for the apartment itself... it is a nice, bright and very good located holiday apartment where you will find everything you might need for the selfcatering vacation. There is also a babycot and a highchair. Everyday cleaning is a bonus that we really appriciated and you are also in touch with lovely always smiling housekeeper Marceline who is there to help you with anything you might need.
And at the end we want to thank to the owners Sandra and Mark who were very helpful arranging the things around apartment. We were lucky enought to meet them and their parents personally. They all are such a nice people who provided us with plenty of information about the island and helped us with everything we needed during our one month long stay and also helped a lot when our baby was ill... they made our stay really amazing and unforgettable experience! And when they left back to Europe our baby was standing everyday infront of their door saying "Where is Gerome and Silvia?" :))) it was so cute...So once again thank you and we really hope so much to meet you all again in such a beautiful place like Mauritius definetely is!
We would like to let you know we had a very relaxing enjoyable holiday.
The was excellent. We used the "private" beach the mostly, as it is only 5 minutes walk and the snorkling for tropical fish was what we both were looking forward to. We found the trip (Rs400) to the South West showed us most of the Island and the bus rides into Port Louis(Rs32) as good as any fairground ride!
Marcella's meal was delicious and plenty of it.
There are lots of restaurants within 10 min walk or Winners supermarket is only 2 mins round the corner.
Dear Sandra & Mark,
First of all thank you so much for really a great holiday.The photos don't do this apartment justice.. What a lovely spacious apartment, furnished appropriately for holidaymakers wanting a self catering style of holiday.,which is the only way to enjoy Mauritius :-) . The supermarket is around the corner and there are 2 fruit markets just as close making shopping so convenient . We enjoyed amazing food for breakfast every morning and had lunch and dinner a couple of times in the apartment. The place was kept immaculate by Marceline who also makes a mean local curry upon request for dinner - for a nothing fee. We spent every day on the beach and there was a cupboard full of beach towels, and beach chairs and mats to use which we really appreciated. The coffee perculator was my best friend and the local supermarket stocked my favourite coffee :-) . The location was brilliant - 5mins to Grand Baie by bus which stopped outside the door, and cost next to nothing. Cote d Azur private beach was a two minute walk and we spent every other day here, while Pereybere's main beach, a 3min walk was a lovely beach style lagoon , and a sunbed and umbrella could be hired out for the whole day, and Cafe Perybere and the local Food Stand and Icecream stand was well visited by us. We highly recommend hiring a scooter and going around the island - we had a free tourist map to use and it was easy to get around. Swimming with Dolphins was the highlight of our trip , which Nanda, who picked us up from the airport, combined it with a mini tour around Mauritus for a great price. Nanda is the man to talk to about tours, and if you like seafood and don't mind basic restaurant surroundings then Nanda's Uncles Rest in Grand Baie is the one to visit . The Sailing trip out to Flat Island was also another highlight with the snorkleing and the onboard seafood BBQ. We could go on and on about how amazing Mauritus was and staying in such a fresh, spacious and well equipped apartment for two weeks just made the holiday a real island style living scenario. We had an amazing time and ( fingers crossed) hope to be coming back next year. It really was a wonderful and truly magic holiday and would recommend it to families, couples and friends.

We cannot recommend Mauritius more highly! A more colourful and vibrant place would be difficult to imagine. The people are very friendly, and the island feels very safe.
We had a wonderfully warm welcome, first from Nanda who drove us safely across the island from the airport, then from the lovely Marceline, who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, and subsequently from Sandra's very kind parents who gave us lots of useful advice.
The apartment is situated in Pereybere which is a pleasantly lively place with a variety of reasonably priced restaurants. The new 'Winners' supermarket is conveniently close and well stocked. The apartment itself is bright, and cool (due to the air conditioning). The furniture is quite basic, but we found the washing machine very useful. Marceline had thoughtfully furnished the fridge with a few items, so our first breakfast was provided for.
We didn't often feel 'ripped off' in Mauritius, but avoid the loungers and parasols on the beach for which they wanted to charge us 800 rupees. Do make sure you find time to visit the south of the island which is also very beautiful but quite different to the north.
All in all it was a great holiday! Don't miss out!
We have just returned from a holiday in Mauritius staying at two apartments, one in the North (this one) and one at Flic-En-Flac, each for one week, so we can make a fairly informed judgment about this apartment. The apartment is as they describe. It is well maintained, equipped and spotlessly clean. It is situated about a 2 minute walk past 2 dogs we nicknamed Flic and Flac from two amazing beaches, the public beach on the left and the 'secret' special beaches on the right. Bonus items in the apartment incude a DVD player, spare towels for the beach and a washing machine, three items you do not often find in holiday apartments. If you don't speak French then I recommend you take DVDs with you as all the channels on TV are in French except BBC World News. Lacking from the apartment were spare toilet rolls. They provide one but they expect you to replenish yourself. The housekeeper, Marceline was very helpful, She came everyday, except the weekend, to clean the apartment. She spoke fairly good English and offered many other helpful services, such as cooking for us (sadly we did not try her cooking). Be prepared for power cuts. The apartment does have a torch in the bed side table. We hired a car for the two weeks and had no problem parking the car in the very secure basement parking.
All in all this is a very good apartment with very helpful proprietors and housekeeper. Their helpful tips (sent by email) were invaluable. If we go back we would stay there again.
