We stayed at Maison Papaye for a week in Mar/April 2016 and we pleased it was the perfect choice. Our hosts Marie-Helene & Philippe couldn't have been more helpful. They are friendly and accommodating (even to our fussy dietary preferences for breakfast). We stayed in the Creole Room on the ground floor (we only chose that as we envisaged returning...

We stayed in two rooms for a week with our children and had a wonderful time. The place is in perfect condition, rooms and the house in general wonderfully decoraded and the pool area very nice. The owners are very friendly, interested and great advisors on excursions in the area. A perfect base for a stay in the south west...

Marie Helene and her team certainly make you feel welcome almost spoilt. Great breakfast, superb accommodation, quality fittings and finish to this magnificent home. Close to many attractions and a short walk into town where there is a selection of restaurants - Fritzzy is by far the best. Our stay Maison Papaye will be a memory to hold.

Reviewed 20 October 2015

This French-Mauritian guest house is set back in a residential area off the main road towards Le Morne. The first floor balcony room we stayed in was pleasant and comfortable, reasonably-priced, and spotlessly clean, overlooking the garden, and good size swimming pool which shelves steeply so may not be good for children or less competent swimmers (see photographs). The breakfasts...

Hi Colin, hi Jill, Thank you for your friendly comment. However we want to correct a misstatement on your part. On your arrival day, the small fridge room has broken, it's true. but we immediately placed your personal drinks in the Maison Papaye fridge to keep them cool during your restaurant diner. When you return, we changed your fridge and...

We spent five great days there! Marie-Helene is the perfect example of french hospitality! This was by far the best place we stayed in Mauritius. Non-french breakfast (which means you get much more than just a croissant) and the diner is also a must-do. If you want to rent or do anything, just ask the hostess: she helps with everything...

The French villa is a dream. The la Balue room was magical. Located perfectly in the village of la gaulette, If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the place to be in. Marie is a warm host and gives you all the space and comfort. The food and drinks rates are a little expensive. Apart from that...

On our previous 10 visits to Mauritius, we always stayed at one of the Beachcomber hotels and on one occasion at Club Med. As we managed to obtain very competitively priced tickets using our BA miles, we thought we would try staying in a guest house. I do not think there were many guest houses listed in Mauritius in past...
