About this listing

Welcome to the west coast of Mauritius! We have 3 beautiful apartments with large glass sliding doors opening onto a tropical garden and pool,or a balcony with a great view. They comfortably fit 2 adults and an additional child (5 euro extra) and are located in the fishing village of La Gaulette, close to Le Morne beach. From here it is super convenient to explore the south west of the island or to just hang out on one of our beautiful beaches.Supermarket,restaurants and bus stops are close by.



The space

We are located in La Gaulette on the west coast of Mauritius 10 minutes drive to the best kiting beach... Le Morne .There are 4 private self catering apartments available ,2 downstairs with own kitchens and the 2 upstairs apartments sharing a very large kitchen.The Rusty Pelican has a certain style.Each apartment is tastefully furnished and is no less than 70 m2 and they all have own balcony with view.There is a large pool set in a tropical lush garden to cool off after a day out. Many other attractions are close by.The rum factory and the Tea Estate of Bois Cheri are on the way to the famous Coloured Earths. The Black River Gorges and Tamarin Falls with many trails are also reached from the west coast. We can help organise airport transfers and car and bus routes are in walking distance. Bed linen and both bath and beach towels are provided.We love our island and are keen to show you where to go. It will be our pleasure to welcome you as guests!

Guest access

We have a large common area with books,games,beach things and sporting equipment can be kept here too.The pool and deck are common areas and so is our beautiful garden.

Interaction with guests

I live on the property and can happily assist you with trips,excursions and all other questions and requests.

The neighborhood

La Gaulette use to be a fishing village and still keeps some of that small village charm.The area is great for living with the mountains behind and the sea just in front.

Getting around

It is better to have your own car but there is a bus stop a very short walk from the house.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Corinna's place for 5 nights in late March 2017 and we had the most wonderful time! The apartment is somewhat bigger than it looks like on pictures with anything you might ever look for, even the mosquito candles. Also, you can always borrow some swimming-snorkeling equipment from the lobby, which was handy. There is a laundry corner on site, which is useful if you are travelling light. Oh, and the garden! It is a real gem of the place: well managed and gorgeous at all times :) The place is also super quiet so we had a great night sleep, too. Corinna was a wonderful host, giving some good suggestions of the places nearby such as restaurants and supermarkets, as well as answering the numerous questions about the island. The only thing to keep in mind is that you really should have a car to drive around or be prepared to take taxi at any time, as the property is still reasonably far from the beach and other local sightseeings. However, it has nothing to do with the quality of stay, more of a point of planning ahead. If you are still thinking of booking an apartment in Rusty Pelican - think no more, you won't regret it!

This is the only place you need to know about!! It's lovely, perfect, beautiful, calm, relaxing, clean, it has huge rooms - very much space and it has the nicest, most kindly, goodhearted host Corinna! She is fast with communication before arrival, she fixed us a driver who picked us up from the airport, gave us a lot of tips around the area and even offered us a phone that we could use for local calls if needed! She works very hard for the animals at the island, takes care of the ones who is hurt or abandoned! So nice! She also get children or other people (like us) to paint big trashbins so they look nice with the message to recycle and to Save the planet! My husband affortunately got a cold when we was there and she gave us a lot of recommendations of what medicins we should get etc though she also is a pharmacept! We really love this place, it has a small but totally enough pool that is clean and a beautiful garden! Lots of stuff for lending for free. Its really close to the supermarket and restaurants. Our favourite restaurant was Enso-try it!! We recommend this place with all our heart!! So happy we found it at Air bnb! Thank you so much Corinna for everything!

we love this place. Corinna is a lovely host and we hope to come again. We arrived early (flight timing) but she was very accommodating and organized a room for us to freshen up and rest. The Rusty Pelican makes you feel relaxed the minute you get here, it is a super zen place and every morning you wake up to the birds signing. What a pleasure and we are going to miss it.

Corinna was an outstanding hostess! She thought of everything to help make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. She helped us by giving us tips on where to go for dinner, how to get around and even organised a ride to the airport for us. She was also very flexible with working around our unusual flight times and allowed us to stay at the property until 10:30PM when our ride arrived. The apartment has access to wifi, which works in most areas of the apartment, swimming pool and she even has snorkelling equipment you can use. Would highly recommend Corinna's apartments.

Very quite and nice neighborhood, spacious rooms, great swimming pool. Corinna is super friendly and helpful. Always responded my texts in five minutes, and help me with car rental and stuff. The location is 5 mins walk from a grocery shop, so it's pretty convenient. You probably need a car for sight seeing, either renting one or taking a taxi.

We were very tired when we arrived to Corinna's apartment on first day in Mauritius but attracted by her house soon. We were welcome by her and guided to the first floor where there was a family (one father with her dear 4 years daughter from Reunion) as our neighbor, my son and his girl became good friends from final two days and played well in the apartment. We shared the nice and big living room and kitchen. Corinna introduced our room in detail including the big bedroom and balcony with useful drying rack. There is a small room for kid inside including two cots for baby and kid. Shower, towels for wash and beach are offered and personal toothbrushes and paste are needed to prepare by guests. On the tea table Corinna left the key, the map and one local mobilephone which can be used by guests in Mauritius for free. Some fresh fruits, juice, milk, mineral water were prepared by her at the same time for us. There was a wash machine in the grand floor that needs to be paid 100 rupees for every use, so we can wash the clothes in time. We stayed in her apartment for 6 nights and everyday Corinna cleaned the house, plants and the pool carefully so we lived comfortably and kept agreeable. Also a lot of books and travel guide in different languages, public equipments for water games and toys were prepared in this apartment, and Corinna introduced local professional tour dictor Victor to us who rent a Nissan March car that was good and fuel efficient with 1000 rupees per day to us even including the safety seat for kid. From Monday to Friday two local ladies will clean the room for us. The supermarket, ATM, police station and restaurants were five minutes from the apartment by foot, we cook breakfast and dinner by ourselves every day by the conveient facilities in the kitchen that helps to save money. Corinna was very nice and enthusiastic, I remember once my son were swimming in the pool where there were some leaves inside by wind, she cleaned the pool at once when she saw it. On the final day when we left, my son did not want to move and all my family looked forward to the coming in next year. 我们第一天达到Corinna家的时候非常的疲惫,但是立刻被眼前的小院吸引了。Corinna出门迎接我们并带领我们来到2楼,隔壁的邻居是一位来自比利时的留尼旺人,带着他4岁的女儿,最后2天她和我们的儿子成为了朋友,玩的非常开心。他们和我们共用一个客厅及厨房,非常大的客厅,很棒。Corinna向我们非常详细的介绍了各项用品,我们的房间里卧室很大,外面也是一个很大的阳台,还有晾衣架这点非常有用。里屋是儿童房,有婴儿床及一个儿童单人床。洗手间有淋浴,不提供个人清洁用品,但是提供毛巾及浴巾,以及去沙滩的时候使用的大浴巾。卧室的茶几前,提供了地图、wifi密码及一部当地使用的手机,非常好,之后的行程中联系很便捷。同时还提供了欢迎水果及冰箱内的果汁、牛奶、矿泉水。洗衣房在大门口的工具间,每次使用洗衣机需付费100卢比,非常好能让我们及时清洁衣物,以免带回一大箱脏衣服。我们在Corinna家住了6天,每天清晨她都很早起床,清理泳池及花草树木,将整间院子打理的井井有条。非常舒适惬意。她还准备了很多的书籍、旅游指南和公用的水上项目装备、玩具等,并帮助我们联系了当地的Victor,提供租车、送机等各种服务。Victor租给我们一辆日产的march,1000卢比一天,车况不错也省油,还提供儿童安全座椅。同时在我们下午回来后,都能看到有专职的保洁人员帮忙我们清洁房间,很少有民宿提供每日清洁工作。厨房设备一应俱全,我们都是自己走路5分钟去超市买食材,回家自己煮早晚餐,吃得健康同时也节约了很大一笔费用。有次我的儿子去泳池游泳因为大风的原因池子里有些树叶,Corinna马上用滤网帮忙清洁,非常好。最后一天走的时候,依依不舍,我儿子告诉Corinna明年还会再来的,期待!

My husband and I had a lovely stay in Corinna's upstairs selfcatering apartment. It is very spacious, clean and has everything you need. The garden is like an oasis. My husband enjoyed the pool very much. There is also a little shopping centre close by with a very nice restaurant. Corinna takes good care of her guests.

Easy going and flexible. I love the outdoors and my island. Animals are very important, and so are kindness and respect. Have sailed around the world in a self built yacht and enjoy meeting other travelers!
