in details

Located on a beach of Poste Lafayette, on the East coast of Mauritius, villa Les Dunes 1 is one of those rare typical beach houses of Mauritius, known as “Campements,” made of old stone walls and a thatch roof. Built in the late fifties it has been fully renovated in 2013, adopting a contemporary interior and modern equipment without losing any of its authentic charm.

The house counts 3 air-conditioned double bedrooms; the one on first floor has its en-suite bathroom. In-between the roof and the wooden flooring, a great view on the ocean in a unique cocoon atmosphere. The other 2 bedrooms downstairs have twin beds and share a bathroom. In the mezzanine, the TV room.

Les Dunes 1 is almost semi-detached to Les Dunes 2, villa with swimming pool. They are positioned in such a way that the guests of one another are not disturbed. A small garden gate can however link the two villas allowing the accommodation of up to 12 guests.

A fully-equipped American kitchen, a deck around the swimming pool sheltered by endemic shrubs contribute in the palpable charm of this villa.

The environment in Poste Lafayette is still wild and natural where the wave-break and the breeze in the “filaos” brushwood are the lullaby. It is a most relaxing and invigorating place where one is happy to land for holidays to recover from a hectic period at work.

If you have young kids, the pool is equipped with a pool safety net, available upon request and to be installed by Jim the housekeeper.


The villa Les Dunes 1 is serviced from 9.00am to 2.00pm daily during the week and on saturday mornings. Cooking of lunch is included, however the cooking of an additional meal is subject to a surcharge of 4 €/hr plus eventual transportation costs.

Guests' Reviews & Ratings

We had a very good stay at the villa Les Dunes, the house is very pleasant and the environment is peaceful. We had the beach to ourselves! Note that the nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes away by car, so it is advisable to hire a car or book the services of a driver. Guyanne, who does the cleaning, cooking and laundry, is very kind and discreet, so is Jim, the caretaker. We hope to come back on holiday to this villa!

We had a mega great stay in this holiday home. Guyanne and Jim were very discreet and we always felt comfortable with them. You can park your car right outside the door. What was in the fridge at arrival was also great after the long flight. You could just arrive. And the food prepared daily was always plentiful and extremely tasty. The house is really excellent and if we had any concerns, we were always helped immediately. This house and this service are absolutely worth it. THANK YOU for that!

House with its feet in the water Everything is organised to make your stay a very pleasant one. Guyane, very discreet and efficient, took very good care of us and delighted our taste buds. We are delighted with our stay.

A beach house like a picture book: only a few metres from the sea, the well-kept wooden terrace with pool goes directly into the beach and is protected from view by dense bushes.

The sea was a bit rougher than expected, the beach too, but snorkelling there was great fun - fins/swim shoes are recommended because of sea urchins. We loved the house itself, especially the location away from the hustle and bustle and tourism. Upstairs an airy bedroom with lovingly designed en-suite bathroom and beautiful wooden floor. Downstairs the open plan living and dining area with a second bathroom and two more bedrooms. The kitchen was top of the range and catered for more than basic needs, even providing aluminium foil etc.

We were greeted warmly with lots of info from Sophie and a wonderful meal from the housekeeper Guyanne - she cooks fantastically and comes daily on request. Also the caretaker Jim can always be approached. One of the nicest Airbnbs we have had so far!

We booked the house for our family (2 adults, 4 children) in September 2022. Sophie gave us a very warm welcome & farewell and provided us with a wonderful ``starter pack`` in the fridge. The house is stylish and very well equipped. The lunch prepared was delicious.

The location is quiet and perfect for relaxing. The sea is beautiful but more for snorkelling than swimming. However, there are other beaches nearby where the sea is calmer. We can highly recommend the house.

The house is stylish and very well equipped.

What a Super host. We spent nine days at Sophie’s and it was marvellous. The pre-check in information that was provided was really great and covered everything about what to expect. Sophie was there to greet us and To our surprise there was a full meal prepared, that was very nice of her. Sophie was very welcoming and very professional. Cleaning service was much appreciated. The house is beautiful and the area is very nice.

This is the place to spend a relaxed holiday away from the large hotels! You feel not like a tourist but a little like home away from home. The house is wonderful with its huge terrasse protected from the wind and the pool hidden from views.

Guyanne is a real pearl! We enjoyed the dishes she cooked for us so much :-)) and Jim took care of the pool and the cleanliness of the beach in front of the house every day.

The sea is quite rough but that is normal in this area and you can swim and snorkel right in front of the house.

Only one little thing to mention:
There are some mice inside the whole house (also in the bedroom 1st floor) and they are not shy anymore. One night they nibbled our soap...
We did not care a lot but there are maybe other guests who are not that relaxed...

Home away from home

Extremely unusual to find such an idyllic spot and lovely hosts. Excellent value and really exceeded expectations, we will go back and would not hesitate to recommend it with enthusiasm to friends and family.
Idyllic spot and lovely hosts
Jeff K. - United Kingdom - 01 November 2019
We spent 2 great weeks at the villa Les Dunes 1. It really fitted all our expectations. Far from tourism, we have wonderfully recovered.

A heartfelt ``thank you`` to Guyanne, who cooks well and to Jim, who is always helpful and prepares the garden early in the morning. For people who need action rather not suitable.

We spent 2 great weeks
Michael W. - Germany - 25 Oct 2018
We stayed at Villa Les Dunes 1 a wonderful holiday. The house is very nicely renovated and furnished, the equipment is very generous. The care, the service by the housekeepers and the ``caretaker`` were first class, in particular also the meals, which they cooked for us. The environment is very quiet, the small beaches lonely, so you can spend a relaxing holiday here. We enjoyed her time very much.
Wonderful holiday
Stefan S. - Germany - 13 Mar 2017
The house was perfect- it is right on the beach, very private, great pool and outdoor area overlooking the water. The upstairs suite is wonderful and you can hear the waves at night. The downstairs bedrooms are smaller and perfect for kids. It is very private, set back from the road. The staff was great and daily cleaning person spoke perfect English and French.

I would recommend a car if you are looking to get out and about around the island. Within walking is La Maison d'Ete which has a really good restaurant, as well as the Centara spa.

Overall a great pick in terms of a villa on Mauritius.

Beautiful, Quiet, Right on the Beach!
Caroline H. - USA - 13 Dec 2013
A villa with a great interior, nice pool, terrific terrace with beautiful view, a good housekeeping and cooking. A good starting point to explore Mauritius.
The most wonderful villa on Mauritius!
