I’ve had the absolute pleasure of visiting Mauritius during the last week of September this year (2019). Staying at Jean-Claude’s apartment in La Preneuse contributed significantly to holiday perfection. The apartment is much bigger and better as perceived by looking at the photos. All modern appliances, very clean, and it has everything required to cater for every need you might have. Complete and luxurious comfort in a very peaceful and stunningly beautiful environment. The location just abducts you away to a world that is in total harmony with nature. Having coffee on the patio staring at the stunning turquoise water right in front of you, makes you feel like you are truly in paradise. Right next to the apartment is a few large wild fig trees that becomes alive with the sound of what seems like thousands of small birds for about an hour or so. Such a treat. This location allows for hours of beach walking. It is conveniently situated close to a petrol station, Food lovers market, lots of good restaurants, a large supermarket 2 minutes drive away. The area is upmarket and felt totally secure (I even left the sliding door open a few times when I left the apartment). It is also a fantastic location for daily excursions as it is close enough to both Le Morne’s beaches for amazing snorkeling to the south and the very very popular Flic en Flac beach to the north. Also close by is the must see Black River Gorges National Park (via the exhilarating Champagne road) and the Chamarel Waterfall / Seven Coloured Earth. I feel that the West coast is the place to stay in Mauritius because of this. I would like to thank Jean-Claude and Pratima for their genuine hospitality. They took great care in making me feel welcome and looked after. Jean-Claude called me before I departed from South Africa to make sure that my late Sunday night arrival went smoothly. It was always pleasant to talk to the ‘Encyclopedia of Mauritius’ , lol! I highly recommend staying here. You will not want to leave paradise!
Relaxing Family Holiday
The property was excellent and provided a fantastic base for a relaxing family holiday in Mauritius. It was very comfortable with all the facilities we needed. Our two boys (10 & 11) loved playing in the pool and snorkelling in the sea which was shallow enough to be really safe for around 100m offshore. There are great local convenience shops and places to eat within a few minutes walk and plenty of sea based activities in nearby Tamarin and Black River. For more adventurous in land activities there are plenty of excursions within 30 mins drive including the Black River National Park, Chamarel and Casela nature park. Overall, we would highly recommend the property for anyone looking for a quiet, self catering holiday in Mauritius with lots of activity options close by,
Really nice location just on the beach and still private
We had a wonderful vacation. Great location with the beautiful Black River national park and the mountains to protect from the eastern wind and rain. 300 meters direct snorkeling to the coral reef and wonderful fresh fish (marlin and tuna) at the shop 100 meter away perfect for the barbecue with a squeeze of lime. Bakery is 200 meter away and supermarkets also within walking distance.
The apartment is really nice. Large and well disposed. Best location in the complex of 12 apartments with a private terasse and great views of the Indian Ocean.
thanks for your kind words.it is great for us to know that you enjoyed your holidays at PLEINOUEST.
it was a pleasure to meet you.
Hope to see you again in a near future.
All the best to you and the family.
Great two weeks
We were two couples staying for 2 weeks in late November 2017. We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was perfect for us, with excellent room facilities and good beach. This apartment is very well located at Esplanade, might be the best location in the whole Esplanade property. We were swimming in the sea each morning, and in the pool each night before going to bed. The location was good, excellent restaurant Moustache in just a few minutes walking distance. Still mainly we made our own meals, buying fresh fish etc. for it. Weber barbeque belonging to apartment was very usefull.
We had a rented car, so we could move around the island, playing golf at several golf courses. The traffic in Mauritius is not nice, lots of traffic jams and dangerous driving, and on the wrong side of the road. Everything went well anyway. Another disadvantage are mosquitoes. They are not any major problem if you just use protective repellent in the evenings from the first day. Mosquitoes, however, are not a fault of this apartment, they are present all over the island.
If I had to decide once again, where to stay at Mauritius, I would definitely choose this place. Thank you for our host Jean Claude. You were very nice and helpfull. Thank you also for Pratima for taking so good care of housekeeping.
Wonderful apartment, lovely location!
We ( a couple) stayed for one week at the end of May and loved our stay here. The apartment is one of 12 on the complex but there were usually only 3 others occupied at that time of year. We usually had the pool to ourselves, but the ocean was warmer! Remember to bring your water shoes as there is coral everywhere. The owner, Jean Claude, phoned several times and dropped by once to make sure that everything was okay. Pratima, the housekeeper, came everyday except Sunday to clean, and for an extra cost she shopped and prepared a Mauritian dinner for us one evening. We didn't have a car but were able to walk to get groceries ( short walk to small market and long walk to larger London supermarket, snacks and bakery items at gas station nearby) and to visit the restaurants nearby (le bon Chute, Buddy's for burgers, Cozy Garden, and an Indian restaurant.) Fixtures and fittings in the apartment are first class, and the kitchen is equipped with all sorts of pots and gadgets and dishes. The only surprise is that we were responsible for supplying toilet paper after the 1 1/2 rolls that were provided on our arrival ran out, plus all the kitchen food basics like salt and pepper. The towels and sheets were not changed - perhaps this was our responsibility as well but it should be conveyed. But these were minor inconveniences to a lovely stay in an amazing location - quiet and secure. There is no public access to the beach in this area, and the apartment is set well back from the road, with 24 hour security. Amazing banyan tree beside the apartment where each evening the birds gather to serenade you with their music. Lovely walks along the beach, perfect for those who want a quiet and relaxing time - there's no nightlife here! TV only has English news channels, no programmes, so bring some books and enjoy the lovely views.
thanks for your appreciation.We are really glad that you enjoy your stay with us.
Normally the maid should have changed your sheets every 5 days and the towels every 3 days.Thanks for informing me .i will check that with Pratima.
i really enjoy meeting you and pete.Hope to see you at Plein Ouest in a near future.Have a nice trip back home.
The ground floor apartment is ideally located on the west coast taking full advantage of the magnificent sun sets every evening. In a small private residence of 12 apartments discretely built in accordion so each apartment is private, Jean Claudes’ apartment was perfect, full amenities and tastefully decorated. Pratima looked after the cleaning admirably. Every morning you wake up and take a plunge in either the cascading pool overlooking the beach or directly in the turquoise lagoon just in front. Facilities nearby? everything grocer, butcher, fish shop, wine store, just 100m way with the London supermarket 1km away. Hungry at lunch take a stroll down the beach on the left 300m to find a small beach front hotel with sea view restaurant. Excursions loads nearby. All in all absolutely perfect with a special treat for bird lovers every evening only to be discovered when there.
Many thanks for your appreciation.We really like having you at PLEIN OUEST.We hope to see you again.Have a nice day.
