An inventory will be carried out on your arrival and signed by the parties . Any damage to the property will be paid by the tenant.
Vi tog lokalbuss till la Gaulette och hade blivit ombedda att ringa när vi anlände. Det spöregnade men Robby ordande med transport. Catherine var vid huset och tog emot. Vi hade tyvärr inte hyrt bil innan men när vi insåg att detta behövdes ordnade Robby så att vi fick hyra en bil privat. La Gaulette är en lugn liten by med en mycket bra supermarche inom gångavstånd. Boendet var mycket bra med två stora sovrum och ett bra kök. Fin pool. Catherine var oftast hemma och hjälpte gärna till. Fina stränder dock ej på gångavstånd. När vi åkte hem skjutsade Robby oss till flygplatsen för en billig ersättning.
The Skipper's House in La Gaulette was an excellent place to stay. Catherine & Robby were very nice hosts and Robby gave me several tips, where to go on Mauritius. The Skipper's House is perfectly located between Le Morne and Tamarin Bay.
I will defenitely come back again.
This Place to stay is great as it is well located on the Island, for the beaches and the different places to visit.
Catherine & Robby are wonderful hosts that will always give you recommendations to make your stay very pleasant. And in case of problems they will do all what is possible to help.
We have spent 3 weeks at the Skipper's house and we got the possibility to participate in and enjoy the Mauritian way of living as Catherine and Robby were kindly nice to have us with them in several occasions and our 2 daughters had a really great time with their daughters.
Robby took us to swim with Dolphins and this made the joy of all our family (estra cost but worse it). He also helped us to get a rental car at a good price.
We had the 1st floor appartment which was simply equiped but largely enough for our needs. Also if you would need something more, it is just to ask Catherine or Robby.
The price for that appartment is good, just have to not forget that Air Conditioning is an extra cost.
In summary we would highly recommend this Place for its location on the Island and because of the owners.
Wir hatten zu zweit einen schönen & angenehmen Aufenthalt für 4 Nächte. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber & alles Nötige ist vorhanden. Robby & Catherine sind sehr freundlich, stets ansprechbar & hilfsbereit. In der Nachbarschaft gibt es viele Hunde die Nachts bellen. Wir hatten einen Mietwagen. In der Näheren Umgebung kann man viel Unternehmen & ein Supermarkt ist direkt um die Ecke. Danke Robby & Catherine :)
We had a great stay at Skipper´s house in La Gaulette. Robby picked us up at the airport and brought us to his place. We had a big apartment with fully equipped kitchen, things like sugar and salt have been there and we also got some flour. The apartment was clean and tidy and there was also a mosquito repellent in the sleeping room. And there was an adaptor for our technical stuff. On our first day Robby drove us to the beach and showed us the best places.
Thanks for the good time.
La maison prévue avait un problème d'eau, alors Robby nous a logé dans une autre maison, chez Sandy, qui a fait de notre séjour un moment de bonheur.
Nous voyagions avec notre fils de 17 mois et elle a été au petit soin pour lui (et pour nous aussi).
La maison dans laquelle nous étions était grande, propre (seul les geckos et autres bestioles étaient là pour apporter un petit moins mais bon ils étaient sur l'îles bien avant nous) et la terrasse nous offrait une vue splendide sur l'île au bénitier pour le petit déjeuner. Bien équipé, nous nous sommes sentis chez nous dès les premiers instants.
Robby & Catherine´s Skipper House, was A great stay. These People goes out of their way, to give you the best possible vacation time. The apartment was tidy & clean and without any flaws, there could have been more inventory in the kitchen, but there was what we needed, and otherwise it's just to ask for it, and they will provide. It could be an idea to bring your own pillows if you're use to have something soft under your head when sleeping, apparently this is not used much on the Island.
From the apartment shopping is only a short walk away, and restaurants also. In North wind directions you can launch and surf from the center of la Gaulette, in East directions Le Morne beach is only a 10 min. drive away.
We have been very satisfied with our stay here, and will definitely come back again. Thank you Robby and Catherine for a beautiful treatment, and for all your help.
Best Regards and wishes from Cecilie, Anne & Lars from Denmark.
