“It felt like home”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We spent our 2 week honeymoon there in August 2013 and had an amazing time. Not only is it a beautiful, safe and silent complex but the staff, including management as well as everyone else, were always so friendly. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast was also very good. The beach as well as a few good restaurants are just a 5 -10 min walk away. The capital (Victoria) ist only a 10-15 min and absolutely affordable busride away.

We more than enjoied our stay at Hanneman Residence and fully recommend it. Thanks again to all the staff and all the best for you in the future...sow we can visit you again sometime!

We were so lucky to stay at Hannemann for 3 weeks in july. The Hannemann residence is clean, it is very friendly staffed and Manfred (the owner) is just a guy that you have to like. Everyone at Hannemann was always ready to help us, even with the smallest things. We did not have breakfast included, but they still brought us pancakes in the morning almost every day. They even brought us pancakes without eggs, since our son is allergic to it.
They called the car rental service and we got a car delivered at the door, helped us get a beautiful wedding cake delivered at our room, made us a wedding dinner and made sure that we always had bananas;-) We even got bananas to bring back home with us. We also asked Hannemann to help us book a place to stay at La Digue for 4 days. We ended up with a really nice place (with great food) thanks to Santale at Hannemann.
We travelled around a little and we must say that there were no comparison to the service we experienced at Hannemann. Absolutely all the personnel at Hannemann was friendly and made sure we always had what we needed (and a little moore).
The last evening Manfred invited us and the wedding couple to dinner at the pool area. Great food and a really nice gesture from Hannemann to end our holiday with this. This barbecue was amongst our best meals at the Seychelles, so if you are staying at Hannemann you should try the barbecue for dinner at least one time.
The day we left, Manfred met us at 0400 in the morning to say goodbye and make sure that everything was in order with the transportation to the airport. Unfortunatly the transport was delayed, which made Manfred call the travel service and get the transportation that we had ordered before we went to the Seychelles.
We would like to send our sincere gratitude to all the personnel at Hannemann for making our vacation special. Thank you very much and hope to see you some time in the future.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay in the Seychelles at Hanneman Holiday Residences. I cannot speak too highly of the friendliness and helpfulness of Manfred and Santale both before our stay and whilst we were there. From the moment we arrived early morning to be welcomed by a lovely tropical breakfast to the moment we left at 05.30 in the morning with Manfred waving us off, we were looked after thoroughly!

The 2 bed apartment was very spacious and comfortable with the kitchen very well equipped. As mentioned, breakfasts were a highlight with fresh fruit and fruit juice, cereals, eggs and bacon if you wanted and most importantly - the pancakes, which our children (aged 8, 6 and 3) loved! The kids also loved the swimming pool which was very welcoming, private and usually empty. The endless supply of little bananas throughout the day were also greatly enjoyed by all!

The property itself is a 5 minute walk to Beau Vallon beach (we were supplied with torches and reflective jackets to make ourselves visible at night by the road). The beach is very pretty - you will find a smattering of restaurants and also a few stalls selling fruits and delicious home made curries with a lively bazaar on Wednesday night. Watersports, fishing and diving trips can be organised but despite all this, the beach is not unduly busy. Good snorkelling can be found by the rocks either end of the beach too. Hanneman is also about 5 minutes walk from an ATM and a few small supermarkets.

Manfred and Santale helped us to rent a car for a couple of days which was effortlessly organised in minutes and inexpensive and we also booked trips for some island hopping to Moyenne, La Digue and Praslin.

One of the highlights was a walk to beautiful Anse Major beach from Bel Ombre (where we were dropped off by Manfred) and a return by water taxi to Beau Vallon.

We had an amazing time in the Seychelles and part of the reason was down to our stay at Hanneman. I would have no hesitation in recommending the residences to anyone visiting Mahe. We would love to return.

This is our last night and I am sitting on the lovely balcony writing this review. You can not fault this place.
The staff are wonderful, nothing is a problem, Manfred the owner is happy to provide info and help with any query you may have and it just makes for the most relaxing holiday.
The apartments are nicely decorated, spotlessly clean, and have everything you need.
Don't bother with the five star hotels, stay here, it's just as good if not better.
A quick walk gets you to the beach and my husband used dive seychelles for scuba diving and snorkelling (they are to be highly recommended).
Handful of restaurants in walking distance but by far the best is La Pearl Noir.
If we come back to e seychelles this will be our first choice for accommadation.

Room Tip: All good and the duplexes have loads of room

Well, we couldn't have found a better place to spend our 30th Anniversary. Manfred, Hubert and Chantal and the team couldn't have done more to make our time with them more special. The place is beautiful and immaculate in every detail with very high specification and attention to detail. The kitchen was amazing with Miele appliances throughout and the apartment was serviced daily. The pool area is very pretty and it is a salt water pool surrounded by wonderful tropical plants, comfortable sun loungers, large parasols and is very private. We walked to the beach and restaurants sometimes, it is not a long walk and the Residence arranged a hire car for us for some of the holiday, this was efficiently done and very reasonable. Airport transfers were arranged and Rene was an excellent chauffeur and even arrived early for our 5.45am departure! We cannot say enough about the care and friendliness of the people in this house and would recommend the Hanneman to anyone who wants first class accommodation, service and relaxation. Thank you all for making our stay so special.

Room Tip: We were in No. 1 which is a beautiful two bedroom duplex overlooking the pool with an enormous balco...

We spent around a week there in April and tested two flats (both perfect!). Very clean, comfortable and well equipped, quiet, and with very good breakfast. Located at 5min walk to beach and to good restaurants, it was ideally situated.
The most important thing we appreciated was the kindness of the team!! Extremely nice and helpful!
We fully recommend Hanneman! And will return again!

Room Tip: all rooms are good!!
