Rental Properties in Mauritius - The Guide

Welcome to a fresh episode of 2-Minute Tuesdays, where we’ll dive into rental properties in Mauritius. This is especially valuable if you’re considering a move to Mauritius and wish to explore the island before making a long-term commitment to property ownership.

One frequently asked question concerns rental properties in Mauritius. The motivations for coming to Mauritius vary, and not everyone arrives with the intention to purchase property immediately. Many individuals prefer to test drive the island before committing to a long-term stay, and others come for job opportunities, prompting the need for rental properties.

A Diverse Market

Navigating the rental market in Mauritius is both diverse and challenging. Presently, demand significantly surpasses supply, particularly in the two primary areas we operate – the West Coast, covering the Black River and Tamarin area extending up to Cascavelle, and the North, encompassing the greater Grand Baie area. 

Both those regions have a shortage of stock, and one of the reasons for that is that during the COVID period, construction came to a standstill, and subsequently Mauritius has relaxed its restrictions and made it easier for people to come, live and work in Mauritius. As a result, there’s been an influx of people and the demand is just outstripping the supply.

When Should You Start Your Property Search?

For prospective renters, my recommendation is to plan ahead when searching for rental properties in Mauritius. Regarding property types, we offer a diverse range of options in Mauritius, primarily including apartments, duplexes, and villas. Additionally, the pricing spectrum is extensive, providing flexibility to suit various budget considerations.

What Areas Should You Rent A Property In?

For those desiring a more lavish and secluded lifestyle, consider areas like Heritage Villas Valriche on the West Coast. As for the East Coast, developments like Anahita are available, and there is also Blue Bay down South. Of course, popular choices include predominant areas like Tamarin and Black River, while the North, with its schools, major healthcare services, and shops, naturally attracts a substantial expat community.
