Oh how I miss Mauritius! I lived and worked there for two years. It is truly paradise, and I hope to go back there one day to see all of the places I used to hang out in.

Searching for an apartment online in Mauritius is actually not that hard. I found my apartment only 2 weeks after I landed. I lived a beautiful 3-bedroom place just a few blocks from the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

I should let you know that the best time to search for an apartment is during the low season of June through August when the weather is a bit cooler. During summer, December through February, a lot of places are booked up, and you will have a hard time getting a good bargain.

With all that said, below are the best resources online to search for an apartment.
