We really enjoyed our stay in Omusee guesthouse. Our room was beautiful and clean, with nice wooden furniture and a comfortable bed. Water was running all day and night (which is not usual in other hostels and guesthouses in Seychelles) and we could also use an outdoor shower when we came from the beach. We were really enjoying the food - exotic fruit for breakfast (together with bread, eggs etc.) and delicious fish (with rice, meat and vegetables) for dinner. The guesthouse is in a very beautiful setting in the museum garden, with many interesting plants, tropical trees and even animals. It was very nice to sit there every evening and enjoy a cup of delicious tea made from citronella that was grown in the garden. Steve, the owner of the guesthouse, was very friendly and very helpful in organizing our trips - he helped us with bus trips and also recommended us a very nice trip to Curieuse island that we really enjoyed - we were only four people on this trip on a small boat, we had a lot of time to walk on the island, got a delicious barbecue and then went snorkelling from the boat - this was much better than going on a similar trip with big travel agencies together with a lot of other people. Steve and Jeannine were very friendly, always smiling and helpful. Steve gave us a great tour of the museum, he explained us a lot about the history of Seychelles and about the plants he grows in the garden - in the end of the tour we even tried to play some traditional musical instruments. The guesthouse is very close to Anse Volbert - a beautiful beach that is very good for swimming, it is also very close to a bus stop and to a food-store and ATM.
