When you stay at Manee’s, it’s more than just a very conveniently located yet quiet haven of a space that’s steps away from a supermarket (with the most mouthwatering fresh baguettes that everyone waits on line for), a local beach with the softest sand and bluest water, and easy access to all the catarman tours that leave from the North as well as more busy areas for eating and shopping. More than all these highlights, you have an invaluable and ultra-responsive resource from a local which is so important in efficiently finding practical information and things to do fast after jetlag and for a hidden gem of a country with less travel posts/research available online. Manee is warm, friendly, and always inviting. We found that she was proactively prepared and readily has the best recommendations available including a fresh, home-cooked delivery meal service, so welcomed after a 24 hour flight. We also loved how essential it was that cleaning and laundry was not only included but very thorough a few times during our stay for more than a week. It’s also very exciting to hear her plans for expansions and modernization of the current rooms available. Keep her pinned and on your radar when you come to visit Mauritius!
