We loved our stay at the charming and character full beach bungalow, the pictures don't do it justice! A groovy and lovely place to enjoy the vibe.
Communication was always swift and easy, and check in was very friendly and informative.
The location next to a private beach with amazing views was superb. This is especially important in Mauritius where sadly most of the beaches are made inaccessible by large resorts, and not so many with public access. So you can enjoy your own quiet piece of paradise here.
The cleaner was very lovely and unobtrusive, and did a great job, always so friendly and cute :-)
First - Denis was very prompt in the communication, replying to our questions within the day. Due to delay in our flight we arrived six hours later, but our welcoming was well arranged. Patricia, the lady who is looking after the house had cooked for us and we felt immediately like home. The bungalow is by no means luxury, but it has its character and it's very cozy. It looks much better than the (website hidden)'s situated on Pointe D'esny, on the best part on one of the best beaches in Mauritius. The beach is very clean, almost no people, turquoise water and as if this is not enough, there are two dramatic peaks just north as a backdrop of all this.
The bungalow is not exactly beach front, it's situated on a plot with couple of other houses sharing lovely garden on the east side and having a private garden on the west side. I loved reading book on the veranda in the evenings, listening to the tropical rain or the birds singing. The beach could be a bit windy, but the garden is well sheltered. The beach is like 50 meters away, no need to cross any road. Blue bay is like 20 min walking and Mahebourg just few minutes by car. Airport is 15 min away.
All in all, after we explored the island and Pointe D'esny, we felt very happy with our choice. Definitely value for money. And finally, big thanks to Patricia and her daughter who looked after us and cooked us delicious Mauritian food. Highly recommend.
Very Nice place to stay! Really that holiday feeling at the moment you arrive. Note: when it's raining all over Mauritius, sun is shining in Pointe D'Esny. We will come back!!
We were greeted by our host and even though our arrival was a little later than planned, and caused some inconvenience to the host, made to feel very welcome. We were given a tour of the house and all the information we needed and were particularly touched by the host's generous provision of a delicious home cooked meal and fresh fruit.
Wee loved the house which was very clean, comfortable and homely, and provided everything needed for our stay. It is positioned in a quiet area with direct access to a beautiful, uncrowded beach, whilst shops and restaurants are nearby.
It was an absolute pleasure staying here and for a holiday somewhere charmingly authentic we thoroughly recommend Fouilly Plage.
We spent 8 days in Fouilly Cottage, after spending 34 days at Denis' other listing, Fouilly Beach Villa. Compared to the beach villa, the cottage is much more of a proper house and also bigger. It is located on the same grounds but without sea views - but the sea is literally 50 meters away through the property. It is set in very pretty gardens and the decor of Fouilly Cottage is done with great taste. We had Patricia, the guardienne of the place, cook us meal which were delicious. Marie-Claude, Denis' mother, welcomed us and was great showing us around and always there to help. We loved our stay there.
My wife, son and I spent 5 weeks at Denis' place in Pointe d'Esny. It is a truely beautiful place, just off one of the most pretty beaches in Mauritius. The beach is public but as access points are few and far, it feels like a private beach. The cottage is very nice too, with a great decor. The windows literally open on the sea - amazing when you wake up in the morning. The breeze from the sea is great too - it ensures that the place is cool all the time. You really do not need any aircon. Denis' mum, Marie-Claude, was there to welcome us when we came with some lunch. And then there is Pascaline, a lovely women from Mahebourg who came to clean and, most importantly, cooked for us everyday. She is a truely amazing cook and we ate her great food almost every evening - creole dishes, fresh fish, curries, etc, etc. We would just buy vegetables, meat, etc and she would, very creatively, cook something for us. Highly recommended.

Our host (Denis' Mother) made us feel very welcome, waiting for us to arrive on the first day off our delayed flight, and making sure we knew where everything was in the house. She also cooked us a delicious evening meal for the first night and provided some basic provisions. This was very kind. The house was exactly as described on the website. Very well presented and equipped, with everything you could need in the kitchen and added extras like beach towels etc. Every day, Patricia, the housekeeper came in to freshen up the house and to cook if required. Definitely worth taking her up on this. The house is 80m from the sea, and the kayaks are great fun. The only drawback we noticed was that this house was situated right next to the road, and hence we could hear cars/mopeds at times. Everything else was perfect however. A really great house with fabulous hosts. Strong recommended.
Fouilly Jardin is a great cottage, well equipped and neat. The garden and surroundings are beautiful and within seconds from a breathtaking beach. It is situated between Blue bay and Mahebourg and 10min from SSR airport. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

Respectfull guests, easy communication. You can safely let your house !
Dennis und ich sind gute Nachbarn und Kooperationspartner. In Köln kennt man sich und hilft sich gegenseitig. Das paßt sehr gut.
Denis ist ein Mensch der hält was er verspricht.
