Lovely rooms! Loved the big shower! Great location! Directly next to the river with a small alleyway leading to a lovely beach! Andy, a member of staff, was super helpful and friendly. He helped us plan excursions and advised us on some amazing places to eat! They have a free canoe which was great for traveling up and down the...

At the end of a long winding road, with lush canopy greenery, where everything is alive or about to be, you will find The River House. A small but outstanding B&B property on the banks of the river overlooking Tamarin Bay, hosted by Angela the innkeeper. Expect peace, quiet, magnificent views, and unparalleled hospitality. The River house has 4 rooms....

I stayed together with two friends at the river house, we had a a nice and clean room, enough space to be extra comfortable, and a deck outside to chill and hang out. The place has great breakfast while looking out at the river, walking distance to a great beach with calm waves and soft sand and restaurant options. Everyone...

We booked well in advance for our honeymoon and it was definitely worth it. It's a few minutes walk from a beautiful sandy beach. Perfect for sunrise and sunset. The breakfast was amazing. Especially the home-made banana jam. With a series of sunny days, we enjoyed breakfast by the river band and conversions with all the guests. Our host and...

A very quite place, located very near to beach. The beach was nice, not bathable beach, more to a fisherman beach.But the river house was beautifully located on a river side. We only stayed one night, breakfast was good.The rooms were smaller than what we expected but it was ok for us for one night.The owner Annie and her assistant...

Very comfortable base in the best region (south west) by our opinion. We preferred the active natural activities over tourist precincts. However the road to the property from the main road is rough in some sections. The property is on the river/estuary and peaceful most of the time. Beautiful views, bats overhead at night and birds. Sort walk into town...

The moment we entered into this place, it was a jaw dropping experience for both me and wife. We have never imagined a place to be so calm and full of nature. All green, a river flowing in front of your room, birds chanting, hills mounted on the side of the river, what else will make it more romantic on...

River House is a very special place by the river, with very relaxed staff, amazing homely atmosphere and definitely the view we had in Mauritius from a room window. We stayed only 1 night during our 'around Mauritius 1st wedding anniversary trip', but we made the most of it and thanks for the courtesy of the wonderful host, we could...
