About us

Our Story


DIANE WATKINS – Property Consult was founded with the intention of providing our clients with a personalised realty service in Black River, a developing region situated in the West Coast of Mauritius. We have also extended this service to a select choice of first grade property developments across the Island, such as the One and Only Private Homes Le St Geran, and Anahita Golf and Spa Resort.  We understand that each of you have a different set of requirements and we take great care to listen and understand what these are, before guiding you into the right direction: we pride ourselves in enabling you to make an informed choice.

A client’s relationship to the property market is not simply about the property; it involves SO MUCH MORE. This is why we have surrounded ourselves with a comprehensive network of trustworthy and well-established partners, which we are then able to refer you onto, whether you should you be inquiring on the different methods of settling and operating in Mauritius, or looking to buy and/or rent in another part of the Island.

No matter the size of your budget, we are here to provide guidance in the process of renting, selling or purchasing your property.

Lining in Mauritius

Sophie and I moved to Mauritius from Zimbabwe in 2008. This has enabled us to truly understand the excitement and uncertainties of settling in a new country. By combining our personal and professional experience and growing our team with well-travelled Mauritian professionals, whether you are planning to make a life in Mauritius or simply invest in its real estate, our goal is to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible.


Diversity, Stability and Authenticity

Our African, Mauritian, French and English background, gives us the added advantage of understanding the island’s 4 main markets and obviously catering accordingly. Mauritius is defined by an incredibly diverse and welcoming community, a stable economy and democratic government, as well as undeniably beautiful landscapes and lagoons. All these wonderful features not only define a home in which Mauritians are immensely proud of, but also an Island that has attracted many non-Mauritian nationals to settle, work and/or retire.


The government continues to support and evolve residency regulations in order to accommodate non-citizens’ demand to invest, live or retire in Mauritius. Being in close contact with the EDB (Economic Development Board), reliable banks and recognised corporate management firms, we guide you through the legal process of living, working or retiring in Mauritius when purchasing a property or renting a property.
