Our Services

With a commitment to personalized service and attention to detail, we strive to exceed expectations and make the relocation experience smooth and hassle-free. Whether it’s a residential move, corporate relocation, or specialized services, we provide tailored solutions to meet the unique needs of each client.


Our Pre-Arrival support is the key to our service because it gives us a chance to explain the local conditions, discuss lifestyle options, address any anxieties that different members of the family may be experiencing due to lack of accurate information and so on.

It is also important for us to help you to set realistic expectations. There’s no substitute for first-hand knowledge. Our team have all been through the process of moving to the island themselves and will provide you with realistic advice and support to make your move a success. We’re on-the-ground where our clients need us to be!

Whether you are relocating for work, opening or buying a business, investing in property or retiring on the island, we endevour to make a positive difference to the lives of people we meet.


Although no two relocations are the same, here’s a look at the typical process flow:


  • preliminary discussions and support (up to a year before arrival)
  • discussions on cost of living and budget planning
  • explanation on permits, schools, housing, bank accounts, business setup, investment, medical, shipping, pets, insurance, vehicles, utilities etc.
  • extensive insight into living in Mauritius as expats


  • personalised airport pick-up
  • temporary accommodation and car hire
  • tailored accompanied area specific Orientation Service
  • accompanied Home Search Service
  • accompanied Education Search (school/university)


  • property lease/purchase negotiation
  • check-in inspection and utility setup
  • opening bank accounts
  • purchasing / leasing vehicles
  • insurances and medical
  • housekeepers, garden & pool service, home maintenance
  • networking, extra-mural activities and memberships
  • dedicated on-going support etc.


Our full or half day accompanied Orientation Programs are developed from a detailed needs analysis and are very client specific. No two orientations are the same! Our objective is to provide you with accurate information about Mauritius and the potential opportunities that are available for you.

We will also identify suitable locations for your permanent home and business. We broadly discuss budgets, lifestyle, security, childcare, schooling, shopping, medical facilities, transport and recreational activities available in each area. Benefit from our experience, local knowledge is key!


We have a wide range of temporary accommodation options at our disposal for your ‘look see’ visit or relocation arrival. We’ll never suggest you stay anywhere we wouldn’t stay ourselves; we’ll make sure that you are put up very comfortably!

We find that some of our clients prefer self-catering villas and apartments where they can begin to experience the island life, others favour hotels and like to ease themselves in gently. Either way, you can count on us to secure preferential rates for your stay within budget.


Finding the right home in the right area is vital for a successful relocation. After conducting a thorough needs analysis, we work closely with you to make this possible. We work with a carefully selected list of reputable real estate agents to research and shortlist qualified properties prior to your arrival. Our relocation home search specialist will accompany you personally on all home viewings.

We have extensive experience within the Mauritian housing market and will ensure that the lease meets local norms and legislation. We’re on your side, we target only the best available properties and look after your best interests by negotiating the most favourable lease/purchase terms.

Once the property rental is agreed, we will conduct a thorough inventory and inspection. A comprehensive report with photographic evidence, signed by both the lessor and lessee is kept on file. This provides protection should any disputes arise upon termination of the rental agreement. In the case of new property purchases, our inspection includes a full de-snagging service.

Here’s how we help…

  • Needs analysis assessment delivered by our home search professionals with expert local market knowledge and independent market advice
  • Home search assistance that includes tour of residential areas specific to your lifestyle and budget
  • Facilitation of lease negotiation
  • Assistance with property hand-over assistance (inspection report provided with digital photos)
  • Lease renewal assistance
  • Lease termination and property survey report at the end of the tenancy


Relocating to another country can be a daunting experience. But we think it should be one of the most exciting moments in your life!

Together with our local and international partners we arrange a door-to- door service including customs clearance, storage if necessary, unpacking and the removal of packaging debris. Over the years we have built up relationships with the companies that have provided our relocation clients with the best service. We work with reliable tried and tested shipping companies and assist you in finding the best solution for your shipping needs.

Helpful tip – in Mauritius, majority of the houses for rent are fully furnished and it is challenging to find partially or unfurnished homes. Get in touch with us for insight into what items you should consider shipping.

Finding the right school for your children is usually top of the list. Fortunately, Mauritius offers a number of world-class international primary and high schools. Once you have completed our education questionnaire, we will provide information and advice on selecting the most appropriate place for your children. Your dedicated relocation specialist will guide you through the various options on schools, setup interviews with the schools, accompany you on each visit and assist with the application process.

Securing appropriate school places is our priority as this will expedite the relocation process and positively impact your moving experience.

Mauritian law dictates that expatriate children as dependents are permitted to reside on the island until the age of 24, thus creating an opportunity to complete tertiary studies on the island as well. In fact, the island is positioning itself as the African hub for tertiary education and now boasts a number of top international universities and vocational colleges with English as the medium of instruction.

Moving to a new country where you don’t know a soul can be very daunting indeed. We experienced this years ago when we first arrived in Mauritius. We make it a priority to source and recommend many networking opportunities for business, sporting and social interaction. We know how important it is to join the community of the connected.

Island life is amazing for kids! Your dedicated relocation specialist will introduce you to all the wonderful extra-mural activities on the island for children as well. Some of these include swimming lessons, Playball, horse riding, rugby, cricket, football, tennis, golf, sailing, gymnastics, ballet, dance, martial arts, cross-fit, kite surfing, arts/crafts and more!
