I am super glad that we decided to stay at BayView and thanks to TripAdvisor for that. This guesthouse is located about 25 minutes from the International airport. Our room was lovely and the bathroom is huge. The views from the room balcony are stunning with the ocean and mountains beyond. The thing that really impressed us was the service at BayView. The manager of the hotel, Helga and her staff are all really nice people. Helga is just so helpful and always ready to give you advice or organize any tours. It's people like her that ensure that when you are on holiday, you have a good time so a big thankyou to Helga for everything.

As for Mahe, we loved the island - the small quaint town of Victoria, the beaches especially Anse Intendance (even though the sea was a bit rough) and Beau Vallon. The food was outstanding at most of the places we ate at which were all relatively close to the hotel so that was convenient. Restaurants that serve some great food include Anchor Cafe Anse La Mouche; Kaz Creole in Anse Royale and La Fontaine in Beau Vallon.

As for transport, Mahe has strict drinking and driving rules so while a lot of tourists prefer hiring cars, we opted for taxis and the local bus to avoid any troubles. Helga also organized a day boat tour where you get a chance to go snorkeling on a little island off Mahe and then to a beautiful, idyllic beach where the waters are warm and shallow so that was a perfect day.

We also took the local ferry boat ride from Mahe to Praslin island (not advisable for those who suffer from sea sickness as it's quite a bumpy ride) and then the next day was a 15 minute boat ride to the island of La Digue - the beaches of Cote D'or in Praslin and Anse D'Argent in La Digue are just superb! I was not that impressed with the Anse Lazio beach in Praslin - don't know what the hype is all about.

All in all, our holiday to Seychelles is by far one of the best trips my husband and I have taken. It's a beautiful country with lovely, friendly people. We will definitely return and look forward to being back at BayView.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms on the first floor for great views.

We had an two weeks stay at the Bay View Seychelles and it was just fantastic. Thanks to Helga and her team. Food was unexpectibly superb. Our room was always clean and whenever we had questions about daytrips etc, Helga and her lovely team was there and helped us to organize a perfect day until we left..
We will definitely recomend BVS to friends and family...

Thanks from Frankfurt/Germany

A very private place, were you feel at home and like a welcomed member of the family.
We stayed here for 2 weeks, and loved every minute of it.
We used the bus for a week and had a car for the other week, I would recomend having a car. They arranged the car for us. The breakfast was excellent. The dinner was very nica also, but a little on the expensive side. The rooms and bathrooms were large, clean and spacious. It was great sitting on the balcony in the evenings looking at the milkyway : )

Thanks for everything.

My partner and i stayed at the Bayview in Seychelles mid march 2012 in a self catering apartment. This was exactly what we were looking for, a private apartment with a great view. No faults what so every it was exactly as advertised, we got a hire car from the airport and arrived at Bayview 30mins later and basically just relaxed for the whole week we were there - this is what Seychelles is all about. Helga and her husband are very polite and friendly and made us fell more than welcome, the apartment was great, tastfully decorated and well serviced daily. The location was great also and on site there is a quiet outdoor eating area with pool area near by although we never used the pool as there is so many fantastic beaches to explore.
We so much prefer apartment based locations so we have the freedom to come and go as we please and to be able to cook our own meals if desired and a lovely balcony to sit out on during the night. We searched many websites in Seychelles for apartments and Bayview for us was great and could not be faulted. Ideal for couples, families, friends or solo.

If travelling to Seychelles again i would return here without hesitation.

We stayed at Bay View Seychelles in 8 days and enjoyed every minute. Helga and her staff is so is helpful and welcoming. They will do everything possible for their guests. There are only 7 rooms in total, which means that they have time for their guests.
We stayed in the yellow room. It was large and had a nice bathroom. The view is spectacular. Located in quiet an very safe surroundings.
It is not the last time we go to the Seychelles and there is no doubt that we also next time will stay here.
Thank you so much Helga :-)
