Location description from owner

The Flacq District

The East Coast tends to be quieter and more exclusive than the West Coast and benefits from the cooling breeze from the sea to mitigate the heat of summer. It is centred around the Isle au Cerf area and Grand River South East is just a few minutes boat ride from the Isle. Several exclusive hotels such as Tousserok and Four Seasons are located nearby.

Grand River South East is a delightful traditional village with great views and fantastic nearby beaches, boat rides, fishing trips, golf courses and a waterfall. This is an unspoilt rural seaside village to get away from the hustle and bustle. There are taxis that can take you on island tours that are very inexpensive. The related local boatmen will take you to, and collect you from, secluded beaches or to the popular local waterfall or on fishing trips.

As well as a small local beach, the superb beaches of Isle au Cerfs are only a short boat ride away. These have wonderful clear water in the lagoon ideal for snorkling. Watersports snd paragliding are also available, along with bars and restaurants near the main landing stage. Visits to both the quiet restful beaches and the more
touristic end of the Isle are advised. The Isle also has the nearest golf course along its spine.

Whilst Isle au Cerfs has long been popular for its delightful beaches, the whole area has become more popular in the last few years and several 5* are just a short taxi ride away. This has not detracted from the unspoiled character of Bel Air and Centre of Flacq, the two local towns which still have traditional shops selling everything, often in the same store. Bartering may bring you bargains in some local shops.

Grande Riviere Sud Est

The Villa is located on the the fringe of the village on the river estuaryand nearby are the well kept local park and beach, the small village store and a shady village centre. The ferry jetty is less than 200 metres from where a free ferry crosses the river to the neighbouring village of Deux Freres. Restaurants are available at the local hotels or in nearby towns. Additionally lunchtime retaurants and beach bar-b-ques are available on Isle au Cerfs by prior booking.

Buses and communal taxis pass the Villa ,but taxis with English speaking drivers are available for trips to local supermarkets or on an island tour that is very inexpensive. The local boatman will take you to and collect you from secluded beaches of Isle au Cerfs or up the river to the waterfall. On this journey you frequently can see monkeys in the trees of the gorge, or even shoals of flying fish if you are lucky.

A wide range of watersports are available on Isle au Cerfs. These include parasailing, waterskiing, tube and banana boats. Deep sea fishing for marlin is at nearby Trou de Douce as is a small waterpark. Kayaking on the river is included. Beach barbeques or inshore fishing trips can be arranged with the local boatmen. Tourist catamaran and Pirate Boats pass in front of the Villa on a daily basis.

We have found that it is pleasant to stroll around the small friendly village during either the day or eveving and you will assuredly be greeted by the local inhabitants.

“Beautiful Villa”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2016

I stumbled upon this gem when I had already booked another place in Mauritius to stay but had accidently booked the wrong dates and needed to find somewhere to stay for an extra night. The communication was really great, Richard didn't mind us staying just one night and Natasha was so nice arranging and helping us get some takeaway when we arrived quite late as our flight was delayed. She also organised a boat trip to isle au cerfs for the next day which is an absolutely picturesque island only 5 or 10 mins away by speed boat. Great way to start of our holiday. Even though we didn't cook during our short stay the house seemed to be well equipped and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again.

“Best holiday i have ever been on....would highly recommend it - a Dream Come True!!!”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

Just returned from an incredible holiday in Mauritius! Riverside Cottage really made the holiday very special and convenient. Amenities are perfect, clean, tidy and has everything you need on holiday and more, all I needed to purchase was food! The size is amazing, with many entertaining areas including a very big balcony overlooking the sea and mountains, and another entertaining area with a bar. Great location and accessibility is perfect, even have private taxi drivers! Riverside Cottage is located right where the river meets the sea which means you get great use of the speed boats right on your door step that take you either to the beautiful waterfall (a must see in Mauritius) and then in the other direction, a 7 minute boat ride takes you to paradise island of Ils aux cerfs. On Ils aux cerfs you have the luxury of either being taken to the tourist side and take advantage of all the water sports or you can be dropped of at a private beach at not extra cost – pure luxury! The boat service (Surjulle) will take you when ever you wish to go with such service. Regarding the house, I couldn’t have asked for more. Perfect for families, groups and even couples. I highly recommend to stay here.
