About the Property

Comfort, security, quiet environment, services included, pool

Our small corner of paradise is located on the seashore, in the heart of the village of Cap Malheureux, on the northern end of Mauritius Island. Cap Malheureux is a much appreciated seaside resort all year long. For approximately thirty years, we have developed a great experience in caring for the tourists and guests who choose to rent the Villa Serin du Cap or the elegant house for their holidays, and who regularly come back here to enjoy the Cap's sun, the beach, the smiles, the kindness and the extremely good cooking of Jeannette and/or Melina. No roads to cross to reach the beach. Take the small footpath and you will find yourself on a gorgeous beach with an unobstructed view over the Northern Islands. The water is lovely. You will enjoy the quiet and beauty of the setting while being close to the hotels, restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, diving centres, hypermarket, water sports, fishing, etc. For kite-surf lovers, Anse Laraie, one of the most renowned spots of the island, is 5 minutes away by foot.
The Serin du Cap villa and the elegant house are decorated with taste and we are mindful of hygiene and cleanliness. We are regularly renovating to maintain our standing. The villa combines comfort, simplicity and security for an unforgettable holiday with your family or friends. The villa, with its 3 air-conditioned bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, can accommodate 6 people. Baby cot or extra mattress available. For a larger number, it is possible to rent the elegant self-catering house on the same ground (see advert 674245). The house can accommodate up to 4 additional persons.

The terrace of the Villa Serin du Cap is a pleasant living space and offers beautiful views over the sea and the islands (Coin de Mire, Ile Plate, Ile Ronde). A new private swimming pool on the right of the terrace invites you to enjoy rest and idleness! It is fenced: a relief for parents with young children. Barbecue area (with Weber grill) next to the terrace. You can bathe and grill at the same time during summer nights. For television lovers: flat screen TV and Canal Satellite. DVD player and Wi-Fi connexion for the Internet addicts.

The Serin du Cap house, elegant, convenient and convivial is perfect for a couple with children or for two couples. It has two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, double bed air-conditioning, and ceiling fan. Baby cot or extra mattress available. The terrace with garden view serves as a living room to fully enjoy our tropical weather. Deck chairs and Weber grill also available in the garden. The open-plan kitchen, fully equipped, has a TV corner and Canal Satellite channels, a sofa bed, a WiFi connexion.

You will be won over by the greeting and the discretion of the housekeepers, Jeannette and Melina, who will let you taste a Mauritian meal on the house at your arrival. You will enjoy their local and varied cooking full of savours. Put your luggage down and let you be guided and pampered by them. They work from 9 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. every day (except Sundays and bank holidays) but are also available outside those hours for an extra cost. They know how to get you fresh seafood, tasty fish, how to prepare festive meals, babysit the children. Here, welcome is not just a word because we have customers regularly coming back here, some of them for 18 years! We go grocery shopping for you the first time, allowing you to recover from the trip.
The villa and the house are entirely secured with an alarm system linked to a central. We are recorded by the Tourism Ministery. The garden is inviting, well-kept with flowers, and entirely fenced, which is a big asset for parents with young children. A welcome booklet gives you all the necessary information about the excursions as well as the important phone numbers. There is one in each property.

Cap Malheureux is a typical fishing village. Early birds, go down to the beach and admire the pirogues leaving for fishing; the colours are dreamlike. You can walk on the beach along the coast. Do not forget to take the time to watch the sunset with your feet in the sand and an aperitif with accras and islands punch prepared by the housekeepers.

The Cap Malheureux chapel, with its red roof (colour of the Flamboyant tree in summer), one of the most photographed sites of the island, is 3 minutes away by foot. Little shops and vegetable shops accessible by foot. Nearby, the Maison du Pêcheur to buy fresh fish, and next to it, a boules court. The bus stop is 50 meters away; therefore you can use it if you do not want to use a car. A car hire agency will deliver you a car at the house for a democratic price. We arrange, with no additional charges, the first groceries, the airport/house/airport transfers.
Pereybere with a well stocked supermarket is 3 km away. Grand Baie, the hotels, boutiques, banks, restaurants, supermarkets, nightclubs, various water sports, etc is 6km away. Grand Gaube: 7 km. Mont Choisy: 12 km away. Port-Louis, the capital city, is 25 km away. The grapefruit gardens, the Labourdonnais Castle, among other places to visit, are located 15 minutes away by car.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Born in 1953, married to Jean-Claude since 1975, mother of 2 and grandmother of 2 little boys. I have a long career in the administrative sector and I take a lot of pleasure managing our holiday rentals. I have always had a passion for cooking and truly enjoy meeting and sharing moments around a meal.

Why the Owner Chose Cap Malheureux, Mauritius:
The villa was built in 1974 on a land that has belonged to the family for decades. We lived in this villa at the beginning of our marriage but later decided to come only during holidays; the kids growing up, it was difficult to reconcile studies with the invitation to idleness inspired by this idyllic place. Therefore we decided to share this jewel with people wanting to know this country in a different way. We acquired our reputation through the grapevine and we met a lot of people and friends via theses rentals, not to mention that it allowed us to acquired experience in the hosting sector. We have always been renovating and improving the place for the pleasure of those visiting.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We never get tired of raving about the view of the islands and of this turquoise sea that we can admire from the terrace. The lush nature, quietness of the garden, song of the birds are gifts constantly renewed. All we can do is enlivening all of this with our personal touch: our sense of greeting, sharing, and our desire to do things right.
