have also gone to check on property rentals - they seem quite steep. Would you suggest to work through an agency or direct with the owners?
You might want to consider both sides to make sure you don't need anything. it will cost you though...
If you're considering liasing directly with owners you should do so in person I guess to make sure the deals are genuine....Oh yes I've said it!!!
There are some fraudsters as well in Mauritius.....just like anywhere else..
Hope this helps. Keep us up to date and post any of your findings concerning the pet thingy. It might help other people browising the forums.
Thanks in advance.
