We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at Penrose 1st. We were woken by nothing but bird song in the morning and spent most of our time on the lovely large veranda when at the apartment.
The living space is much larger than the photos suggest and the kitchen had all the facilities we needed for our stay.
The apartment is on a quiet street, but close to all the amenities you may need. Grand Baie is only a short distance where there are many bars/restaurants and a big supermarket.
We made good use of the bikes that were at the apartment, but would recommend taking lights if you intend to use them in the night. Most days we cycled to Mont Choissy beach which had great food shacks and water sports to keep you entertained.
There are some great places to eat very local to the apartment, including a place called Ananda Snack. It doesn't look like much but they do fantastic soup with dumplings and BBQ chicken, worth a try and very inexpensive.
We couldn’t recommend this apartment enough, if you’re looking for a relaxed time in a comfortable, well equipped apartment then Penrose would be a great choice.
