The Skipper's House Studio apartment is located in the small fishing village of La Gualette on the beautiful west coast of Mauritius close to the best kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing spots on the Island.

The space

We are located in the small fishing village of La Gualette on the beautiful west coast of Mauritius. The apartment is a short 5 minute walk from the town centre where you can find everything you need including a supermarket, restaurants, bars, kitesurf, surf & windsurf shops & more.

We are a 10 minute drive from the main kitesurf, surf and windsurf spot in Le Morne and a short 20 minute drive from the world famous surf break in Tamarin.

The kitesurf spot in Le Morne has an excellent lagoon for beginners plus a range of world class wave spots including One Eye and Manawa. The beach itself has a protected area from the wind so you can relax and watch the action easily when you are not on the water.

Other activities include snorkeling, diving, walking in the national parks, swimming with dolphins in Tamarin and much much more.

For nature lovers the apartment is not far from the Seven Coloured Earth of Chamarel, the Black River National Park and the south coast which is the wildest of the island.

Our guest house is divided in 2 apartments and one studio, all for rent separately or together. They all have their own private entrance and nice views of the sea and the mountains.

The ground floor and first floor apartments are made of two bedrooms with double beds, a big living room with an open kitchen, a bathroom and a 15 square meters veranda.

The first floor studio is furnished with a double bed, a self catering kitchen, a bathroom and a nice veranda.

We also offer our guests the privilege to use our garden and swimming pool.

Our family will take care of your comfort and well-being and we are able to help arrange any activities you would like to do on your trip including arrange a rental pick up truck for your stay. We can also arrange an airport transfer for when you arrive and depart.

Robby (the owner) is a professional skipper and can organise you water sports activities like water skiing, snorkelling with wild dolphins, picnics on Benitier island and more.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our idyllic island.

A great location near the supermarket, and walking distance to most places in town. Robby and Catherine are excellent hosts and can accommodate any needs. The internet was reasonably fast and reliable.

It has been my second long-stay at the studio and I can only recommend the skipper house. Robby and Catherine are perfect hosts, friendly and helpful. The apartments are clean and well equipped and it's a walk to the supermarket.

I had a very nice stay at Robby and Catherine's place. The apartment is small but suited me very well. Didn't try the pool but the garden is very well kept and you are rather close to the supermarket and restaurants which is a big plus. Perfect home base when you want to go kitesurfing in Le Morne.

Robby and Catherine are really nice people that can help you a lot if you have questions about the island, need a car or have any other question. They have a nice place with 3 Apartments. Every apartment has its own bathroom, kitchen and terrace. Everything was clean and cozy. I would recommend it.

Beautiful place, I literally felt at home. So, if you need a calm place with view on the mountains and the sea, the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)per's house is the place to go.
