We have travelled the world and are fortunate for this. So what I say is in comparison to many places. First, the people of Maritius and its whole are wonderful, warm and welcoming. Villa Orisha was our wonderful welcome to this incredible warm environment. The Villa iteslf is located in heaven (the heavev of seas). We mean gorgeous...right "smack" on the beach..with beatuiful. I could not get enough of the view. The view was from the living room, the patio, the beach area and the master bedroom. Listineing to the waves (mild as they were ) 24/7 was so peaceful. We didn't really want to venture anywhere since it was such a delight (ok, better than delight). The masterbedroom had a full on view of the ocean. The livingroom as well. The incredibly large dining table (behind the living room) also had a view and was perfect for dinners..(romantic,...they always had candles to light....lovely and perfect touch). The kitchen was incredibly well stocked...we didn't take advantage of the cook since we didnt' really speak French well and were not able to communicate about food preferences. . So we primarily cooked for ourselves which was fine since we were jet lagged and woke up at 5:30 am...had breakfast and returned after their hours were done. The house was wonderfully kept!!! (wow...what a treat on vacation) and laundry to boot! I cannot say enough wonderful words about this place...We went as a couple only. The upstairs had two bedrooms. One with a double bed and also looked out on the ocean...with a window that would open wide with its own bathroom. The third with a view on the swimming pool (without was cold) and also its own bathroom. I think this is a perfect place for a family. If several couples, one would have to have a lottery to see who got to stay at the master bedroom vs other bedrooms.....AGAIN ,,....I was very sad to leave this was perfection! Oh was quiet...i mean wonderfully quiet. Birds, ocean, etc. We took a 3 hour walk on the beach (and we could have gone further, this is how incredible this beach is) and we ran into (maybe) 5 people. Swimming was OK....a bit cold for me. Kite surfing was right next door...but we didn't take advantagel. WE did go diving. The lagoon in front of the house was divine (but cold as i mentioned). We would come back. soon if it was not so far away (we live in San francisco and Hawaii.....yet it was worth the long voyage!!). Only one criticism...payment was required through our banks or westeron union. A bit of a pain for us in the US where credit cards or paypal are the norm and easier. However, we realize this is how it is done in Mauritius..but food for thought. Thank you Villa Orisha...for one of my very very best holidays!!!! Life is good.
