The villa is located in Troux-aux-biches in a quiet, secure and private area.

If it the price looks like a good deal, it really is! I'm new to Airbnb and I'm offering the best deal for a villa so close to two of the best beaches of the Island: Troux-aux-biches and Mont Choisy. Try the villa and you'll not be disappointed by my hospitality.

The villa is fully furnished, comfortable and secure. It'll be a nice place from which you'll venture out to explore our paradise island.

The space

The villa is part of a two storey duplex: The two floors are independent from each other and they are each fully furnished and are ready for guests to move in.

Built in 2004, I usually use one floor of the villa as a weekend retreat and rent the lower floor to guests. The villa is set in a quiet road in its own very private garden with patio, living space, kitchen, two double bedrooms with aircon and is an ideal size for 2-4 guests. It is suitable for children.

The villa is completely secure. I built the villa there as a nice weekend retreat because Troux-aux-biches and Mon Choisy beach are the best and most relaxing areas of the island. It is a short bus ride to Grande Baie, one of the the island's main tourist town.

Guest access

The villa has a veranda in the garden, living room, fully equipped kitchen, two double beds in each bedroom with aircon.

There is a coconut and tropical fruit trees in the garden and you are free to enjoy fresh coconut water and seasonal fruits.

There is a large bathroom with a washing machine.

Parking for a single car is available in the driveway or street parking is available.

High speed wifi is available and ready to use.

Weekly cleaning services are available upon request for stays longer than 2 weeks.

Interaction with guests

I am currently retired and I am available whenever needed. I live about 20 mins from the villa and I'll be happy to help you anytime.

If you wish, I'll be happy to host a complementary lunch with local food and a nice rose wine at my private residence located on the slopes of a hill at 240m above sea level. You'll be able to enjoy views of the entire northern areas of the island.

Other things to note

The villa is close to Trou-aux-Biches and Mon Choisy beach. These are the two best beaches on the island. You can enjoy the warm lagoon water and the white sandy beaches.

There are a number of water activities that you can enjoy: Scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, parasailing, paddle boarding, just to name a few.

We had a really good time staying in the Villa. The pictures are representable. The neighbourhood is nice and safe. James is really nice. We also met James's wife and niece, who were both very kind. One day they brought us breakfast and on our last day they cooked the dinner for us so we were able to taste some traditional home made goodies - very delicious! :) The beach, restaurants, shops, pharmacy and bus stop are in the walking distance (cca 15 min to the beach). You can find more shops in Triolet or in Grand Baie, which are both in the North. The public beach in Trou-aux-Biches is very beautiful. We rented the car for a few days to explore the island. We would recommend visiting Mont Choisy beach, National Park Black River and Chamarel (seven coloured earth).

exactly as described in the offer. Just Mr. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) failed to lead us to the right address but this is another story. - Kitchen is well equiped. Public beach is reachably by a short walk. - We felt very secure in the house.

After touring the entire island of Mauritius we both concur that we got lucky in choosing James' apartment in the NW corner of the island to base ourselves during our 18 day holiday in July. The North West is sheltered from the prevailing winds, and whilst there are a great many exceptional beaches around the island, Mon Choisy, a short 10 minute drive from James' was our firm favourite. The villa is a good size and well equipped, with two comfortable double beds. The bathroom is large, and generally the place feels comfortable and well equipped for a holiday villa. It was equipped with some essentials such as sugar, salt, pepper and cooking oil. The cooker is decent and there is enough cutlery and crockery. At the time of writing, the bicycles supplied by James were brand new mountain bikes, with helmets and locks. There are two clean and comfortable modern looking sofas, and the TV is a flat screen and receives perhaps 20-40 channels. The wifi is a good speed. Trou aux Biches is a fairly small town. The nearby Casuarina Hotel has a Sega night on Fridays at around 8pm. We had a pleasant couple of evenings here enjoying the entertainment over a couple of drinks. We would definitely recommend hiring a car for your visit. Trou aux Biches' beach is approximately a 10 minute walk from the villa... it is pleasant but small. The villa is a pleasurable and simple 15 minute drive from the centre of Grand Baie along the coastal road. There you have an array of street food, touristic shops, bars and clubs. The Banana club has live music everynight. The street food by the beach in Grand Baie was amongst the best we had. Whilst we enjoyed visiting Grand Baie for our shopping or for restaurants, it is quite noisey and urban. Trou aux Biches is a brilliant little spot. It is quiet and has a relaxed and affluent local charm. There is not the high volume of traffic that you would experience in Grand Baie, and that really made for peaceful evenings (perhaps on the veranda stargazing with a rum ;), which we enjoyed. James and his wife Sheila were really pleasant hosts. They made us a fantastic breakfast on one of our days and it was real pleasure to enjoy their hospitality. To conclude, we do not hesitate in recommending James' villa to you. It really was exceptional value, and it is situated in (by our assessment) the best part of the island for an all round memorable stay in Mauritius. Our local tips: Le Fournil - a boulangerie on the way to Grand Baie. This was the top class boulangerie on the whole island from what we can tell, it was like having breakfast in Provence. Blue Water Diving - we did a PADI Scuba certificate here. Their instructors were excellent. Le Capitaine - an upmarket fish restaurant on the coastal road to Grand Baie To conclude. Thank you James...

James is an amazing host! The communication was perfect! The House is very well located! Less than 10 minutes to the Beach and a great Restaurant James recommended and about 15 minutes to the Supermarkt. It has everything you need and maybe more! We could use the washing machine, had enough towles and bedsheets. A full equipped kitchen and a terrace. We stayed 11 days and after a few days James drove down to us just to check everything is allright! And he invited us to a tipical mauritius lunch! It was super delicius and James wife is just another really warm and amazing person! The best lunch we ever had! I highly recommend this cozy Villa!

Had a great stay in this house. Perfect for myself and my fiance - we have been travelling for the past 3 months and this is the best value accommodation we have found by far. The house has everything you need, washing machine a definate bonus. About a 10min walk to the main beach, shops, restaurants- we did this walk a few times each day with no problem. Very friendly and accommodating hosts, we felt very welcome here. Highly recommend

Wir haben uns direkt wohlgefühlt in der sehr geräumigen Unterkunft. Alles ist ordentlich und James ist ein zuvorkommender und aufmerksamer Gastgeber. Die Umgebung ist schön ruhig. Der Strand von Trou aux Biches liegt ca. 1 km von der Unterkunft entfernt und lässt sich gut zu Fuß erreichen. Zum nächsten Supermarkt braucht man ca. 20 Minuten und es gibt drei, vier nette Lokale in der Nähe. James hat uns bei der Planung von Flughafentransfers und Ausflügen unterstützt und uns an einem Abend zu sich nach Hause eingeladen - die Familie ist sehr herzlich und das Essen war toll:-) Wir würden jederzeit wieder diese Unterkunft buchen!

Très bonne prestation. Très bon rapport qualité-prix. James fut un hôte très agréable, souriant, disponible et à l'écoute. L'appartement est très grand et confortable. Un petit chat du quartier est venu nous voir tous les jours. Il serait bien que les futurs voyageurs le nourrissent, surtout qu'elle était enceinte... Merci à James pour tout.
