I stayed together with two friends at the river house, we had a a nice and clean room, enough space to be extra comfortable, and a deck outside to chill and hang out. The place has great breakfast while looking out at the river, walking distance to a great beach with calm waves and soft sand and restaurant options. Everyone...

We booked well in advance for our honeymoon and it was definitely worth it. It's a few minutes walk from a beautiful sandy beach. Perfect for sunrise and sunset. The breakfast was amazing. Especially the home-made banana jam. With a series of sunny days, we enjoyed breakfast by the river band and conversions with all the guests. Our host and...

We only stayed one night, breakfast was good.The rooms were smaller than what we expected but it was ok for us for one night.The owner Annie and her assistant...

Very comfortable base in the best region (south west) by our opinion. We preferred the active natural activities over tourist precincts. However the road to the property from the main road is rough in some sections. The property is on the river/estuary and peaceful most of the time. Beautiful views, bats overhead at night and birds. Sort walk into town...

The moment we entered into this place, it was a jaw dropping experience for both me and wife. We have never imagined a place to be so calm and full of nature. All green, a river flowing in front of your room, birds chanting, hills mounted on the side of the river, what else will make it more romantic on...

River House is a very special place by the river, with very relaxed staff, amazing homely atmosphere and definitely the view we had in Mauritius from a room window. We stayed only 1 night during our 'around Mauritius 1st wedding anniversary trip', but we made the most of it and thanks for the courtesy of the wonderful host, we could...

If you are looking for something different in Mauritius, the River House is for you. It is a 3 min walk to the beach. There is a surf restaurant opposite the river that is not deep, to cross ( knee deep in low tide and hip deep in high tide)The Tamarin Estate also has a restaurant, we heard. The River...

The River House is in a quiet community of houses between the river and the beach. What we liked was the birds that were fed each morning coming to join you on the verandah. Angela arranged for some fishermen that she knew to pick us up at the beach (5min walk) and go search for dolphins. We took snorkel gear...
