Help! We are looking at buying a holiday home in Mauritius and we're looking at a property in this new development - http://www.emeraldheightsmauritius.com

We have searched the internet and read as much as we can on Mauritius but everything we read obviously only promotes the island.

We're looking for people who have personal experiences of buying property in Mauritius and insider knowledge of the island. We'd like to know things like the current political situation (is it stable?) and is it as easy for foreigners to buy as stated on the Emerald Heights website?

PS. Government officials need not respond.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Thanks for the information guys. I'll have a good trawl through the blogs.

What are people's impressions of this property development we're looking at(http://www.emeraldheightsmauritius.com)? Love to know people's thoughts.

Hi,

Im a business and legal advisor.

Saw ur ad and I wud like to say that as a foreigner, you will not be allowed to own property unless you buy them thru 2 schemes only (IRS + RES) and not below USD 500,000.

However, if u come as an investor, you will be allowed to buy.
