Great gite runners, Brigitte and Johnny, very welcoming and always ready to help. Tips and suggestions made our stay really easy and very nice. Nice and quiet room, plenty of opportunities to talk and exchange views with other hosts. A place to recommend!!
This is the fourth time we spent a week at the Gite Mayo and everything is perfect as the first time! Rooms are well furnished and decorated with an amazing view on the bay. The kitchen is properly equipped with everything you need to cook a perfect dinner. The location is perfect to take advantage of everything the surrunding offers. And the owners make always feel us like at home.
We happened across Gîte Mayo while visiting the dive shop Les Heures-Saines and were looking around for accommodation in the area. We wanted to move from the east side of the island to the west side for the dive sites. The gîte is located in the suburb of Bouillante which is on the west side of the island Basse-Terre. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed twice at gite Mayo in between our island hopping. The first apartment we stayed in had a large double bed and a bunk bed and bathroom with shower. The balcony included a fully kitted out kitchenette included a gas cooker and fridge and had a great view over the valley and sea. We enjoyed many evenings cooking, eating and relaxing on the balcony. For our second time we stayed in a room that was fitted with a single bed and double bed with small balcony overlooking the valley and spacious bathroom with shower and toilet. We had access to a large communal dining area and kitchen which was fully fitted including oven and fridge. We opted this time for breakfast to be included and were treated to fresh fruit and bread and jam each morning. Johnny's attention to detail was appreciated. Both rooms had airco, mosquito net and ceiling fan as well as tv and free wifi and were very clean. Both balconies had a clothes line to hang up clothes to dry (very handy for frequent divers). The buildings are surrounded by tropical trees and plants and there is an outdoor swimming pool and plenty of parking. Johnny and Brigitte were perfect hosts and responded quickly to any requests or questions we had. my husband and I would definitely stay with them again…
We stayed three nights with Johnny and Brigitte during Christmas. We arrived on Christmas eve and Johnny managed to reserve us a table in a really good restaurant for the evening - really kind! Our room was quite small but very cozy and absolutely clean. From the terrasse you have the perfect spot for a sundowner and Johnny mixes really good Ti Punchs. The breakfast contains bread, a good choice of jams and always fresh fruit. You are welcome to use the kitchen at any time as well so you can make your own eggs or pankakes. We would definitely stay there again.
We stayed in two rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, for three nights. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Balcony gives a very nice view over the bay. Good location for exploring this part of Guadeloupe. The breakfast is of good quality and both John and Brigitte are very helpful. The special cake they bought on our daughter’s birthday was very thoughtful. The website needs some updating, the route description says to turn off at the yellow red striped shed but these days it has been repainted and is now light blue. Good to know when you arrive late in the evening. All in all a perfect stay!
