Find an accommodation in Mauritius
It is possible to rent a villa or an apartment without much difficulties in Mauritius.
Most of times, accommodations are furnished and water is included in the rent. Note that rental of studios is hardly ever possible in the island.
Leases are generally one year in length and a one month's rent deposit is often required. An inventory and statement of state of repair of your accomodation must be arranged before signing the lease. Heating is not necessary in Mauritius except for accomodations located in the mountainous area of the island where electric heaters are often available. An air conditioning system is not absolutely necessary in Mauritius except in the summer when temperatures rise high.
If you rent an apartment or a house through a real estate agency, a finder's fee generally equal to one month's rent applies, payable by both the landlord and the tenant.
As far as prices are concerned, you can easily find a 2 or 3-bedroom house for around 20,000 rupees per month in Mauritius. The best deal is to rent a house in a residence with security guard, swimming pool, sports facilities and services.
