Très bon séjour à l'île Maurice.
Le logement est situé à 10 min de la plage, de l'arrêt de bus, des restaurants et du super marché. On se perd un peu au début dans les ruelles du lotissement mais on s'y fait très vite.
L'appartement est situé au 1er étage de la maison et je pense qu'il est plus intéressant de se mettre au rez de chaussé pour profiter de la terrasse et de la piscine.
Sonia et Xavier sont très gentils et serviables. Ils répondent rapidement à nos questions et nous ont même réservé un taxi sur place pour faciliter notre arrivée.
Jean-Yves le Taxi est très gentil et sérieux et l'on a également fait une journée de visite avec lui.
Henri, l'oncle de Xavier nous a très bien reçu et a été présent à chaque fois que l'on a eu besoin de lui. Avec ses conseils, il nous a aidé à organiser nos excursions.
Séjourner à Flic en Flac est un bon compromis pour visiter toute l'île. C'est un endroit agréable et bien situé pour se rendre dans le nord de l'île, dans le sud ou même sur la cote opposée. La plage est belle mais en hiver beaucoup de coraux morts et d'algues jonchent le sable.
Nous reviendrons sûrement un jour.
First of all I must warn all people that are thinking about renting these apartments: Please don't!
Lets start from the very begining. When we arrived to the appartments and placed our stuff in it I've noticed a cockroach. After smashing it I thought that it's not a problem - one cockroach that accidentally got into appartments. But then we saw another one and another one. The place is completely is full of cockroaches.
But it's not the only inhabitant. There are also lots of geckos right inside appartments - on the walls, above the bed, under the chairs and near the dishes. We even found one in the fridge. Just imagine: dead gecko in the fridge.
When we told it to the uncle of the host and the woman was with him, they said that it's impossible and that appartments were cleaned against cockroaches. Exactly at that moment big cockroach tried to grab body of another smashed cockroaches right in front of us. Their explanation failed and they suggested that every appartments on Mauritius is full of cockroaches and geckos. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Every host that respect their appartments and guests here just uses special pencil that prevents cockroaches, ants and lizards from getting into the appartments. We had to make refund and next day rented another appartments that have no cockroaches and geckos inside.
NOTICE: We've been to Mauritius for a month and most of the geckos we saw(including Casela National Park, La Vanille, Pamplemouse and Black River Georges) were in these appartments(just imagine, we stayed in the appartments for less than 12 hours). Folks, I love lizards, but I don't like them in fridge.
NOTICE 2: Toilet in appartments is connected with the bedroom. There is a wall and doors, but distance between wall and ceiling(!) is about 20-40cm. Just imagine: you are sitting on the throne and everything can be heard right from the bed. I love studios, but prefer when bedroom is combined with the kitchen and not the toiled.
Uncle of the host proposed us another appartments in the morning and said there wont be any cockroaches. When I got to another appartments I understood that it was true. Though I had a snuffle, I could smell remedy for cockroaches. I didn't want to get rid of cockroaches and geckos with the price of health of my GF and me.
Another thing to consider: when we were messaging with Xavier about a taxi, he said about one price for the taxi from airport to appartments(1200 MRU). Then in several days he said it will be 1300 MRU. But when we got to the airport and were met by a taxi driver, he said it will cost us 1400 MRU. I
NOTICE 3: It's not 10 minutes from the beach, bus stop and spar, but at least 15-20 if you are walking rather quickly. And btw, Cascavelle is 7-8 km away(so description of location is not accurate).
The apartment is very nice and me together with my husband and our one-year old boy spent a wonderful holliday there. The air conditional is great and the pool as well. The apartment is very well equipped and the owners (at the time we were there, Xavier's mom helped us with everything) are very nice and helpful. If we have the chance to be back, we would definitely rent it again.
Nous avons été enchanté de notre court séjour à Maurice. Le studio en rez-de -chaussé donnant sur la piscine était très fonctionnel et bien situé, endroit très calme , résidentiel, et proche de la plage et de ses commerces ( 10 min) .
La mère de Xavier, notre hôte, nous a très bien accueillie , et a été très disponible pour répondre à nos attentes, et nous conseiller.
Un grand Merci à Xavier et sa mère .
We were staying here for 14 days and everything was OK. His uncle was very nice, and we tried to communicate in german with him, because his english is not very good. Appartment is fully equiped, kitchen has everything you need. There is also washing machine, so we washed the towels.
The neighbourhood is quiet and nice, very close to Spar store. We also love that beach in Flic en Flac. We really hope coming back someday!
Xavier et Sonia sont de tres gentille personne excellente communication
L'oncle a Xavier nous as tres bien reçu a Maurice et etait la pour nous en cas de problème
on a passer des superbes vacances je recommande leur appartement car très propres et avec tous l'équipement qu'on as besoin quartier très calme
Attention a Maurice tous l'équipement proposer par Xavier et rare
ils sont a même pas dix minute de la belle de Flic en Flac il y a des magasin avec des souvenirs de bon restaurant typique
quand je retournerai a Maurice si je dois etre dans le sud je reprendrai leur appartement
Un grand merci a Xavier Sonia Et Surtout Henry leur Oncle
Xavier's apartment is very nice and comfortble. We got everything we need at home. They live in it and when the guests come they move to his parents temporaryly. My daughter loves the apartment because there are so many cute things. We drived there and Xavier let us use his parking place. The location is convenient.
The photos made the flat look nicer than it really was. It was not a lovely apartment but quite a lived in one...the owner actually moved a few things out as we arrived. That would have been ok except the place was not clean and yes, I paid cleaning fees. I Evan found underwear on bathroom door handle, bathroom scum on tub and shower curtain as well as broken door with cardboard to cover it. There was also a bad snell in kitchen and living room. Most .annoying was there were no towels. Since the ad didn't address a fee or not providing towels, I thought they did. I contacted xaviar and he said they weren't included and I never heard from him again. I would not stay here again, nor would I recommend it. I've stayed at other rentals and they were always great. This was not airbnb standards. Whoever reviewed the property prior to me didn't stay in this (email hidden)ere was no air conditioning. The refrigerator was full of his food. I appreciate that people share homes, but standards are usually maintained.
Xavier was so welcoming and very helpful. He showed us directly to the waterfront and gave us maps and tips for things we were interested in. The apartment is right beside a bus stop that goes directly to the airport and connects to a main tram line. It was a perfect location and didn't take long to get to the city center at all. It was nice to have such a spacious apartment with a balcony for the great weather. We had an amazing time in Geneva and Xavier was an amazing host, very accommodating to when we were arriving and when picking up the key. Overall, we would definitely stay here again!
We had a nice stay in this quite place. Aircondition, refrigerator, kitchen equipment was new and working good. Also the pool was a good refreshement.
Catherine was really helpfull and friendly.
We can recommend this place.
