My husband and I stayed at The Cove Holiday Apartment for our anniversary trip in early May. The apartment itself was extremely clean and had all the amenities and furnishings one could need. I loved sitting on the upper patio in the mornings, drinking coffee I had made in the apartment's kitchen, and staring at the wonderful mountain landscape view. We initially chose this place because it was only about a 5 minute walk to Beau Vallon Beach, and I'm happy to report that's exactly what we got! We were also able to walk to multiple restaurants right off this beach for lunch and dinner, as well as into town and back for groceries without any hassle. The apartment is also right off a local bus line if we didn't want to walk. Even though this apartment is on the same property as Gilbert and Murline's personal home, we felt like we had total privacy. The environment was very quiet around the property, so we got amazing sleep every night. The cleaning lady came in daily and kept the apartment super tidy. She also washed the dishes we had used, and she even did our laundry that accumulated! Everything was wonderful with this apartment, and it is described perfectly in all of its listings!
Now let's talk about the hosts, Gilbert & Murline! They were very communicative before we arrived to help us coordinate our stay. They arranged a taxi to pick us up and drop us off at the airport for an added fee, which made our arrival and departure from the island super smooth. Upon arrival, Gilbert personally welcomed us and showed us around the apartment, and then he gave us a tour of the town. This was the perfect introduction to the location so we felt comfortable tackling it all on our own for the duration of our stay. Gilbert was a wealth of knowledge, be it about where to eat for our anniversary dinner (he even made the booking for us, and drove us to and from our dinner!), where to go for beachside drinks, coordinating a tour (we did a day trip to La Digue that he helped book— super easy and convenient!), which hike to take, etc. Basically we asked, and he was ready with an answer! When we finally checked out of the apartment on the last day at 10am, we had a late flight that evening. Gilbert allowed us to take showers in his personal house after our last beach day so we didn't have to fly all sweaty and sandy. Talk about hospitality!!!
My husband and I would hands down, without a doubt, recommend this apartment to anyone going to Bel Ombre! We were blown away with the apartment, but Gilbert and Murline made the stay extra, extra special! THANK YOU!!!!!
