Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Un gite aux prestations de grandes qualités, bien plus grand que ce que nous pensions si on y loge à 4 adultes il y a largement la place. Cuisine très bien équipée, tout comme les salles de bains. Très très propre. Petits commerces, restaurant et plage de tamarin à pied. Acceuil très très chaleureux et serviable de l'hôte. Climatisation, jolie vue, rien à changer!

  • Comme à la maison! Nous pouvons recommander sans hésitation cette adresse: idéalement situé, l'appartement de Kitty et Bertrand est indépendant et d'une propreté irréprochable. Nous avons loué un scooter directement à Tamarin sur les bons conseils de Kitty et Bertrand pour parcourir le sud, nous rendre sur la plage du Morne et aller sans difficulté à Chamarel. Il nous a manqué un balcon pour diner en exterieur a l'appartement mais sinon rien à redire, qualité prix plus que satisfaisant! Un grand merci à nos hôtes pour l'accueil et la disponibilité sans aucune fausse note!

  • Séjour formidable à l Île Maurice installés dans le magnifique appartement de Kitty. L'appartement est très bien situé proche de toutes les commodités, propre,spacieux et très joli.
    Kitty et sa famille sont très serviables et vraiment très sympathiques. Encore merci pour votre gentillesse!

  • Que dire ? que du bon: des prix très corrects au regard des très bonnes prestations proposées (chambres spacieuses, clim, coin-cuisine, lave-linge, piscine, etc...).
    Un très bon emplacement : dans l'ouest, donc très près des plages (facile depuis Flic-en -Flac jusqu'au Morne), des points d'intérêts comme Casela ou Chamarel; très près aussi de toutes commodités (magasins, services divers comme la poste).
    Enfin les propriétaires Kitty et Bertrand : sympathiques, bienveillants, serviables, prenant soin de leurs hôtes et étant à l'écoute .
    En bref que du positif :-))
    Assurément une super adresse que je recommande très vivement, sans hésitation !!

  • We spent 2 weeks at Tropical Coconut and were really pleased. the appartment ont he 2 floor of Kitty and Bertrand's house is very spacious, well equipped (air conditioning in the bedrooms, washing mashine, TV,), 2 large bedrooms with their own bathrooms., nice views over the mountains, the salines and the bay. We had a cleaning lady who came each day. The hosts are very kind and availbale to give all the information you need, put you in touch with any company you need for scuba-diving, organiztations of trips, etc.
    Tamarin itslef is also a nice location to explore the south west of the island - our favourite on the first trip to Mauritius. you're within a short drivign distance to Flice-en-Flac, Le Morne, the Black Gorges River natural reserve, and only 50 minutes by car from the airport. We will surely be back and highly recommend the place.

  • Kitty & Bertrand sont des hôtes formidables! Chaleureux, sympathiques, et très accueillants, nous avons passé 2 merveilleuses semaines!

    L'appartement se trouve au 2nd étage d'une maison (Kitty & Bertrand sont au rez-de-chaussé). Cet appartement est grand: 2 grandes chambres avec chacune salle de bain & WC, une cuisine et un salon avec TV. Les photos du site sont tout à fait conformes à la réalité! L'appartement est très bien équipé: climatisation, lave-linge, la cuisine possède tous les équipements nécessaires (gazinière, four, four micro-ondes, frigo & congélateur), il y a même une connexion WIFI. De plus, une femme de ménage passe tous les jours (sauf dimanche & jours fériés)!

    La plage publique de la baie de Tamarin se trouve à 5-10 minutes à pieds. Cette plage est charmante et très calme: les touristes y côtoient les locaux. On y trouve une école de surf qui donne des cours de surf et de stand-up paddle et propose aussi du wake-board et des sorties en mer (snorkeling, dauphins ou visite des îles).

    A 200m de l'appartement se trouve une épicerie où l'on trouve tous les produits de première nécessité et un marchand de fruits & légumes se trouve en face. Sinon, on trouve 2 zones commerciales à 5 minutes en voiture où se trouvent supermarchés, pharmacies, une excellente boulangerie, librairie, magasins de sports, et même un cabinet médical.

    Un arrêt de bus se trouve à 200m de la maison et vous mène vers Rivière Noire ou vers le centre commercial Cap Tamarin.

    Kitty & Bertrand nous ont beaucoup aidé dans l'organisation de nos activités: ils nous ont donné le contact de David, un sympathique taxi-guide avec qui nous avons visité Port-Louis + Pamplemousse et une sortie au Sud de Maurice. De plus, toujours grâce à Kitty, nous avons pu réaliser une sortie en catamaran autours de l'Ile au bénitier.

    Nous avons adoré notre séjour de 2 semaines chez Kitty & Bertrand: ce fût une très belle expérience "en immersion" avec les Mauriciens. Merci encore Kitty, Bertrand, Alizée & Alexandre!

  • We had a wonderful time at Tropical Coconut @ Tamarin Bay. Kitty & Bertrand were both very helpful and made sure we enjoyed our time in Mauritius. Highly recommended.

  • We spent a great week at Tropical Coconut and would highly recommend the place for staying at the west coast of Mauritius. The apartment is on the first floor of a big house with a great view on the mountains. The apartment was spacious, clean and was equipped with everything we needed. The garden even has a pool which can be used. The landlords live on the ground floor. Kitty and her husband were very friendly and gave us a great welcome. We arrived on a Sunday when all shops were closed and our fridge was already filled with all necessary things. They even offered us a ride to the restaurants in the evening or to the supermarket and helped us to rent a car for a very fair rate. Their hospitality was really outstanding!
    There is a maid coming every day for cleaning up the apartment. To the beach in Tamarin it is a 10 min. walk. The next small supermarket is 2 minutes away. A bigger one is a 15 minute walk away. There you can also find an ATM. Tamarin is a small and quiet town. You can find around 5 restaurants and some shops there. Tamarin has a surfing school with a very good teacher who will tell you when the waves are fine for a surf lesson. We did a beginners lesson and had a lot of fun. The school is also offering stand up paddling lessons and you can rent all the equipment. There are very cheap public busses to Flic en Flac or Le Morne. If you rent a car you can easily reach Port Louis in an hour. To the airport it is one hour.

  • The apartment was above our expectations; spacious, clean, full equiped, with extra added value of cleaning lady who came every day to clean the entire place. Also, we were traveling with 5 months old baby and everything was new, perfectly ready and equiped for us (baby cot, baby bath, baby seat...). We were really happy ;)

    Hosts were the best possible ever: Kitty and Bertrand (and their kids Alizee and Alexandre) were so nice, friendly and helpful, that can't be described just by words. We felt to be part of the family. They gave us a lift when needed, help with rent-a-cars, give us bikes and surf board every time we wanted...Priceless!

    Tamarin Bay is beautiful little place where everyone should go - those looking for different, more genuine and authentic experience of gorgeous Mauritius and its lovely people.

    We definitely recommend the place and hosts and we're sure we'll come back to meet again these great people and visit the paradise island of Mauritius. Our host Kitty with her husband became very good friends of us and we trully hope to see them as soon as possible!

    We miss you!!!
    Our vacations wer 'inoubliable'!!!

  • Un séjour inoubliable.
    * Kitty et Bertrand nous ont accueilli chaleureusement. Nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison.
    * L'appartement est vaste et très bien équipé et tout à fait conforme aux descriptions.
    * L'environnement est calme, et l'accès à l'une des plus belles plages de l'Ile, la baie de Tamarin que nous voyons depuis l'appartement, est à 10 minutes à pied. Des commerces et restaurants sont tout aussi proches.
    * Si vous voulez profiter de l'Ile Maurice, et partager la vie des Mauritiens, c'est un excellent choix. Par exemple, il ne faut pas manquer le pique-nique sur la plage chaque week-end, avec les marchands ambulants de "mines frits, de boulettes, de fruits frais et de sorbet rapé.
    * Si vous voulez visiter l'Ile une journée, n'hésitez par à demander à Kitty qui connait des taxis-guides parlant très bien le français et sachant partager leut passion pour leur Ile. Nous avons pris 3 journées de visite complète avec un taxi-guide, sans avoir eu besoin de louer une voiture (2500 Rs par jour).
    * Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir.
    Philippe et Sophie

I enjoyed my first job was in the hospitality industry as a Guest Relation officer. My love for kids brought me to preschool studies and I am to date teaching in a pre-primary school. I love reading, watching football and support Manchester United FC. We always travel with the family preferably to small island destinations and small family lodge or hotels.
