We are a Danish mixed family and we have booked a house in Mauritius without any knowledge about Mauritius and the surroundings.
We were so lucky, to get in touch whit Sophie & Bernard (SB) with there own company Bookmauritius.
We had a few very nice phone call, some emailing and got from first step an impression of dealing with honest and descent people.
It was for our family, very important to have our first mixed holiday together, and we had the best ever…
After we landed at the airport the driver Darmen (our driver for the rest of the vacation) took care of us and he brought us at Vila Bahia and here it all started...
Sophie & Bernard and the crew were all waiting for us to give us an Mauritian welcome, we were and are a bit still shocked over the impression of this house.
There is no word that can describe this house, it has to be seen in real, we have been trawling in around the world and seen a lot, but nothing like this.
We have arranged with SB for a chef for the whole week, and we got a real expert in the person of Oliver, he made all our meals, drinks, and bought sun cream etc. Thanks Oliver! The staff of 3 girls made every day like a dream of relaxation, they cleaned, organized, smiled and made fun. The house had a gardener named Mahen, he has worked on this property for more than 15 years, what a nice and respectful Man of honour and strongly attached to his work. He is in charge for the most beautiful garden, best condition on a house, the nicest beach etc.
The Villa counts a garden, beach and small own private creek, all in such an impressive way, design, interior, room structure etc. have nothing lookalike, its simply a class in itself.
SB organised a trip to see and understand the importance of sugar in Mauritius with a factory and museum visit, they also organised for us the best mountain-bike trip ever with visit of an historic and nature centre, biking along old railways (they cut the branches the day before for us…) we were visiting some unspoiled caves, they brought a small lunch and fresh juice, water and coffee for us and even one of the supervisor made his own cake for us. We ended up in a natural fresh water Pool before our return. Some other day we booked through our Chef a speed-boat trip to see a waterfall in the lagoon, monkey watching, fishing and snorkelling on paradise islands and ended up on Mangenie island for a nice private dinner on the beach.
We can’t thanks SB, the staff and the owner of this house enough, all together you made a dream come true!
See you all soon!
