When I first contacted Rusty Pelican there were no rooms available, there was only room outside, which are containers. At first, I was wondering if I should book them because they are containers. The fact that they are made ​​of metal could heat the room making the night sleeping unbearable. The truth is that I was fortunate to reserve it...

Staying at Rusty Pelican is a treat and Corinna is a very welcoming host. The flat was immaculate with huge rooms and a well equipped kitchen. The flat is very safe and clean.

We agree that there is a problem with too many dogs so The Rusty Pelican donates 2 % of profits towards sterilising dogs and cats.We've initiated a monthly sterilisation campaign here in La Gaulette and if successful, we will approach the Government to do likewise around the island! So every guest visiting helps towards this Thanks.

I can fully recommend the Rusty Pelican for people coming for kiting or enjoying Mauritius outside of a resort/hotel. My apartment was large, beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped for cooking. There's a veranda, great tropical garden and pool. Further the owner Corinna provides all you need for a stay - bbq, snorkeling equipment, guide books and even a local mobile...

I spent 12 days in April 2013 in Mauritius on business & had the very good fortune of picking the Rusty Pelican. Initially I thought it would be too far from Port Louis where I was to hold several meetings, but at the end of the day it was like coming home. Beautiful ambiance, everything about the Orange Room &...

When my husband and I were first shown the accommodation at Rusty Pelican, I thought that it was going to be way over our budget.
