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...

The River House is on a small peninsula of land between Flic en Flac and Tamarin, with the river on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other. You drive along a private road beside the golf club, past the hotel and down towards the river and there you will find it amongst a small cluster of similar homes...

From the time we arrived to the time we left everything was wonderful. Angela and the staff go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. Breakfast is served on the verandah overlooking the river and mountains. Tea,coffee, juice, cereal, fruit,organic jams, crossiants, and eggs any way you want make for a great start for the day.

We enjoyed the suite for three weeks with our small daughters - 2 and 4 years -. Angela was very friendly from the phone reservation, during the stay. She is very kind and provided tips where to go or eat. The view on the Rampart river in eye opener. Just stay on the veranda, drink a beer and enjoy the...

Even before arriving at this place, I was very much impressed with Angela's hospitality who emails the guest to ensure their preference.

I spent 19 nights in Mauritius between Four Season, Beachcomber Le Mauricia, and this fine establishment the River House. This inn is probably like no place on earth not in terms of its rooms or facilities, which were quite nice, but in terms of the hospitality you will find here. They upgrade me for the Honeymoon suite for free, added...

we are deeply grateful for the wonderful stay in this small B&B, hosted by Angela and 'her family', knowing exactly who needs what kind of attention. the house is lovely, embedded in a real Mauritian environment, with lots of animals to observe and whatsoever nature, so this is not some artificial same-same-hotel-experience. it is located a bit off the usual...

Perfect place to spend a few quiet days over New Year. Beautiful beach 3mins walk away. Swim with Dolphins in the bay. What a highlight for the kids, as well as us. Angela is so welcoming and helpful. A real home from home.

We had a great time at the River House with Angela and her staff always caring and attentive. As a whole it was just wonderful. We felt like at home and it was very cosy.
