“No better place in the Seychelles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

I traveled with a friend to the Seychelles over New Years and were having trouble finding a nice and affordable place to stay. Most places on the island are overpriced and geared toward rich couples and families on holiday from Europe. We were so pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a home in Beau Vallon which was both comfortable and very affordable.

We stayed in the upstairs apartment (Silhouette) which was very spacious and had all the amenities we needed. The apartment comes with one large bed and a futon couch. The kitchen is fully stocked with electric kettle, toaster, stove/oven, microwave, and rice cooker. Having a full kitchen was very convenient, especially since meals can be very expensive on the island. The apartment has a large balcony with beautiful views of the mountains and table/chairs to enjoy breakfast outside. The apartment was cleaned everyday and we had access to the swimming pool in front of the family's home.

Beau Vallon is a great location for tourists. We were walking distance from the beach and many restaurants. We also had easy access to the bus since there were stops just down the hill from the apartment. We were about a 15 minute ride from Victoria.

The most impressive part of our stay though was the hospitality from Doris, Mick, and their family. From the moment they picked us up at the airport, they were nothing but generous and gracious hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and ensure we had a wonderful stay. Doris also makes ridiculously delicious banana bread that you will get as part of your first breakfast on the island. We were invited to their family party for New Years and had the best of Seychellois cuisine (mountains of seafood!). I have stayed at many vacation rentals in the past but nothing surpasses this one. I wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else in the Seychelles!

“Amazing Hospitality! Gem of Beau Vallon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed in the upstairs apartment of the house for approx. one week. Overall, had a fantastic stay and was so pleased to find this little gem of Beau Vallon.
Doris and Mick are wonderful hosts. They offered pick up at the airport, will make sure you know how to get around (bus, taxi, walking paths), will provide tips on what sites/places to check out on the island. The guest house was in immaculate shape on arrival, cleaned every day and the property is secure with a electronic gate. Internet is available with a pre-paid airtime/internet card. The house is about a 10 minute walk to the beach, up a steep hill, but the views from the deck were beautiful. There are several places to eat nearby, but also easy to jump on the bus to explore the rest of the island. This was such relaxing, easy, enjoyable stay. Thank you Doris and Mick.

“Peace on the hilltop with stunning views”

We spent 6 nights in the garden level appartment.
Cleanest place we have ever stayed in.
Great shower comfortable as a whole.
The best is the peace and amazing views of surrounding mountains with its ever changing Palete of coulours of luxuriant vegetation.Birdwatching, amazed by flights of the massive Jacques Fruit eating bats.
One recommendation for future renters if available go for the upper floor appartment.It ´s a loft style structure with an incredible terrace.
But to be sincere the best of all is the hospitaily/kindness of Doris/Mick and the girls not to forgert Rody.
A huge thank you again for the amazing Red Snapper, Bread fruit barbecue ( Mick- Rody) and delicious creole dishes (Doris) you prepared for me on my 50th Biirthday.
It was great to have had dinner with all of you,You made us feel Seychellois.
Big kisses and bat hugs

“Good apartment on the hill slope near Beau Vallon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

The apartments are located high above Beau Vallon beach, providing you with a fantastic view and also with a good climb if you go on foot. There are roads, of course, but they're pretty steep; if you don't rent a car, make sure to be careful when it's raining or wet, and don't go without flashlight in the dark. Seychelles nights are really dark.

Still, the apartment is no more than 15-20 minutes walk from the beach, and once you get down the road you can catch a bus to Victoria or take a walk to the beach or to the center of Beau Vallon where an ATM and a number of shops can be found. Victoria is 15 minutes away by bus, the cost is 5 Seychelles Rupees (about $0.5). Mahe has a lot of bus routes with a schedule that actually works (you can get one at the bus station, or ask the owners of the apartment, I left the one I used there — or you can just download it online). Buses from Beau Vallon to Victoria leave once in 20-30 mins and the last one from Victoria is at about 8 PM so you'll have plenty of time if you wish to see Victoria or any other places around the island. Almost all bus routes begin at Victoria.

The owner, Doris, is very helpful and they'll give you whatever you need. I had some trouble with having descent hot water but they fixed it so nothing to complain about, really. They'll also provide transfer to and from the airport for some extra charge which is cheaper than using taxis. Buses are much cheaper anyway but they don't allow luggage.
