Thanks for your help with my last question. We've now got a date. We are coming to Mauritius next weekend.
We have now been told that when we arrive we will be put in a hotel and given a list of potential houses to look at. It is a nice problem to solve! We have been asked whether we would prefer to live near the beach or in the city. Nobody wake me up, I am enjoying this. My wife will be working near the university, and we also need to think of getting our teenage daughter to school, and these two issues are more important than my walk to the sea (we will have a car, but we don't want to spend time stuck in commuter traffic). Any tips on where to aim our search at would be very welcome.
