Domestic Help in Mauritius

Domestics are available to do housework in Mauritius. One to four domestics may be needed in a household, depending on the size. Most domestics perform only one or two types of work such as cooking, cleaning, gardening, or laundry. Young women sometimes work as nannies.

You may have to try several before you find satisfactory domestics. Most speak French and Creole with limited English, and need supervision and instruction. Some houses have living quarters for one or more domestics. However, domestic help often prefer to live in their own communities.

Wages are low by Western standards (around $200 a month) for a full-time maid/cook. The employer provides work uniforms, daily tea and bread, and healthcare.
