I am a frequent traveller and I frequently rent an appartment in Mauritius during my stay. This time my girlfriend & I spent 10 magical days at Villa Catherine. The place is superb, safe, calm and close to Belle Mare beach. I had a warm "Mauritian like" welcome from the guardian (Mr Roger: Thank you) which we appreciated a lot (never seen at other places we have rented in the past). My congratulations to Eddie and Roger for making the villa such a peaceful and desirable home like place. If you are traveling as a couple or as a family and you like peace, safely, proximity to the beach and beautiful weather of course, then Villa Catherine is just the place for you. We are already planning our next holiday and Villa catherine is where we will stay. It captured our heart last time we stayed there and we surely will stay there everytime we visit Mauritius.
Truly a perfect holiday which was enlightened by an Amazing place, Warm Welcome and Warm Weather :)

A Special House on the Beach
A dream house at the edge of a warm lagoon on a tropical island, with a long white sandy beach through the garden gate
Every thing was perfect, it's such a magical place, so quiet and the sea just outside the garden gate. Couldn't believe how fantastic it was when we woke after a bit of jet lag the previous day, to the view from the bedroom window. We had a beach house a bit like this in Barbados about 15 years back, in fact they are similar places in some ways. The acres of sugar cane, tropical plants and birds everywhere, except the food here is much better value. Ravi looked after us, taking us shopping and driving us around. We had several massages at the house for only 500 rupees (£10) per hour and there are hobycats and other water sports available just along the beach.
Really happy to stay at the house and walk along the beach and into Belle Mare, just swimming and relaxing, either in the sea or in the pool. The day bed for people watching is just as you said it would be. You have to pinch yourself when you wake up from a snooze to make sure your not dreaming.
The four of us are quite good cooks and the kitchen is so well equipped that you enjoying eating in. What with the BBQ and fresh fish brought to the door. You couldn't find a better view from either table!
So all in all we had a very relaxing and enjoyable two weeks at your lovely beach house. Really haven't done very much as it is so pleasant, except we did go to the Botanical gardens followed by a nice lunch at a Mauritian restaurant recommended by Ravi. We went to the market in Flacq a few times which is amazaing so full of life and colour, and took several walks to the village of Belle Mare, which has a reasonable Chinese supermarket. We found a nice little bar in the woods on our walk back from Belle Mare - Excellent cold beers and very reasonable.
We walked up the road to a pleasant newly done up restaurant, Seasons, where the owner dropped us back as it started to rain.
But, with freshly caught fish on the doorstep, bread and pineapple delivered daily, take away curries supplied by Ravi’s wife and noodles from Mrs Poona, we ate in most nights. You couldn’t find a better view could you and we bought some nice wines at the supermarket. Ouma was so helpful and brought us fresh local fruit and vegetables regulary and told us how to cook them.
What a great place to sit and watch the world go by or be as active as you want to be! The people, food and climate are just wonderful; we’d definitely like to go back, but next time when the horse racing is on. …
