Having rented a car from 5* Shandrani we made our way through some interesting, but obviously very poor areas. Sceptical we made our way to the town of Tamarin. Closer to our final destination we were really starting to get worried, but as soon as we arrived our fears subsided. Ken and Agnes, a lovely couple were waiting for us at the premises, with friendly smiles and some great advice. Premises was as advertised, in fact it exceeded our expectations. Modern, neat, well maintained and clean. If you looking to experience all the island attractions, this is a great base location. Ken took the family on a fantastic excursion, swimming with dolphins and was a very warm and hospitable host. All round a great holiday.
We stayed here for a month with 3 kids aged 9, 13 and 15. It couldn't have been better! The apartment was perfect and in a great location - clean and nicely decorated. Sabrina was very pleasant and cleaned for us every day - most people don't clean to my standards but I would have liked to take her home with me!! The kids loved the pool and beach. The beach in front of the apartment is small but it gets bigger around the corner and is beautiful. My husband and I walked along it for over an hour most days. Ken and Agnes were great and very helpful. We rented a kayak from them and also booked the boat for a trip to snorkel and see dolphins which was amazing - we even saw whales. Ken helped us with scuba diving as well and my 15 year old was able to get certified. They were full of information and suggestions. Everything we needed was close by - shops, cafe, post office, groceries etc. We rented a car and found more than enough to do to fill 4 weeks. In fact we will definitely be back and would stay here again.
A very enjoyable place to stay. Tastefully decorated with all the mod cons. The location is superb if you are wanting a 'home away from home.' The pool was clean, the maid was efficient & we felt at ease to just stroll out our door & take a leisurely walk on the beach, or just to sit around & enjoy the surroundings without having to do anything at all!
We would stay here again as it certainly is one of the top locations in Maurtius with good shops/restaurants, security & fantastic climate.
We recently spent 12 nights in one of the ground floor apartments at Olana Beachfront Apartment.
The apartment is more than anyone could need, decorated beautifully with all amenities and plenty of space.
The gardens are well maintained and the pool is fab!
Agnes and Ken, the owners, are extremely helpful and readily available to help with anything you need. They kindly arranged, and Ken took us, scuba diving on my hubby's 40th birthday.
The beach out the front of the apartment is small and not really great for swimming in but decent beaches are only a short drive to Flic en Flac or a little further to La Morne.
The location worked for us as it was quiet, we had two small children, but although there is a large shopping area with some lovely restaurants behind the villa you would def need a car to get out and about.
We spent several evenings at a lovely place called The Bay, about a 15 min walk away, watching the sunsets and eating amazing food. We also got takeaway from an amazing Thai place called Ousaporn again a 10/15 min walk away.
If you are looking for a family friendly place with plenty of space, privacy, luxury accommodation and a relaxed environment then you don't need to look any further than this wonderful place :)
We spent here a beatiful 10 days with our children 12 and 15 years old on begin of March. Agnes and Ken were very helpful and gave us tips what to visit in Mauritius. We also used a motorboat, which is available and did a nice trip to observe dolphins and swim with them, to snorkel and Ken prepared us a barbecue on the Ile aux Benitiers.
The aparatment is very spacious, the kitchen is perfectly equipped, There is also a washing machine and beach towels. Sabrina, which cleans made us our stay even more comfortable.
In the garden is a pool and sunbeds where you can relax. There is a beautiful small beach 10min. walk along the coast. We really enjoyed our first stay at Mauritius although the weather was not the best and we would stay here again.
