“Want to see the sea from your bed in your own individual house at Seychelles? Then go there!”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Five individual villas standing on piles overlook the treetops of coconut palms and banana plants with a stunning view over the Anse a la Mouche bay. Our lofty, friendly, perfectly furnished and tended villa was... just huge! A big terrace plus another balcony enabled us to enjoy the incredibly beautiful view even from the bed. Another difference to other self-catering facilities: this one has daily housekeeping and is equipped with an alarm system (which made us feel extremely safe and comfortable).
Debbie and Hubert live just around the corner and take care of all issues, eg. rental car delivery, and provide great recommendations for exploring the island and eating.
Very beautiful and extremely well-managed facility!

Like others have said, this a special place run by a family who cares about their guests.
Although there is air conditioning in the bedroom it is so hot and humid everywhere else it can be quite uncomfortable even outside. A few well placed ceiling fans would make this place unbeatable. Very clean , well supplied kitchen and unbeatable views.
beds in the newer villas are not all that comfortable, but a small issue compared to the lovely location and spaciousness of the villas. Two couples could easily stay here with plenty of privacy.A car is required the drive to amenities is short and the city of Victoria is only 20-30 minutes depending on traffic.
Grocery syores near by are small but have the basics. The ones in Victoria are much larger
I would defintely return.

Room Tip: ask for the new villas

Breath taking view over the bay from above, three large verandas. Plenty of space in this newly built villas, modern design and well equipped, also in the kitchen area. Clean and big bath rooms. No direct access to the shore, better book a car when living here, “beach villa” may be a little bit misunderstanding. No free internet access, you have to pay for it, technical problems with the internet using an apple notebook, was not solvable

We rented one of the few villas for about 10 days.
The owners are fantastic--welcoming and helpful.
The villa is super clean and simple, so we were able to make the place our own.
Sailfish is beautifully landscaped and laid out for privacy--trees and hills sit between the villas.
The villas are by Mahe's prettier beaches in Anse a la Mouche (as we were told by several Seychellois from the other islands!); and while the villas are tucked away privately, they're just minutes from local grocery and fresh-caught fish!
Our Sailfish villa was our perfect place for a beautiful, romantic, invigorating, truly relaxing oasis!

These villas are very new and for the price, a fantastic bargain. Perched on a hill overlooking Anse La Mouche, the two-bedroom villa we stayed in was extremely clean, very nicely furnished and had wonderful views from the two balconies off the living room and the master bedroom. Flowers had been left everywhere in the kitchen and bedrooms - which was a very nice touch - and I was extremely impressed with the spaciousness of the villa. We didn't do any cooking so I don't know how well equipped the kitchen was, but I loved the big dining room and living room - not to mention the fabulous balconies where one can enjoy the views while relaxing. There was no WiFi, but that may be added later. The place is a little tricky to find the first time and one definitely needs a car to stay here, but I would not hesitate to come back the next time I'm in Mahe.

Everything was perfect: the villa, the view, Debbie's warm welcome and her interest during our stay and even after (we've received a nice mail of "Goodbye")!!
The villa has 2 large bedrooms, each one with a stunning view; the terrace was very spacious and it was perfect for a dinner at the sunset; the kitchen was very well equipped..and I really love that we found the villa decorated with small flowers!
All villa facilities were neat and good quality!
A car will be essential to reach the villa and rides in the area. We've booked a car through Hubert and it was ok!
We really recommend this location and we hope that we'll be back!

The villa turned out just right for us - an elderly danish/swedish couple happily celebrating a lot of good years together. We weren't much there during daytime, as we spent most time at the beautiful bay Anse Solei, 10 minutes away, snorkling amongst a myriad of fantastic colourful fish, enjoying lunch at the cafeteria Chez Julian, and enjoying the uncrowded beach and the lush vegetation. But starting every day with breakfast on the terrasse and also ending the day in the villa and the quiet, beautiful surroundings was perfect for us.
It took a little time for us two scandinavians, who love to cook, to get used to the rather sparse sortiment in the local shops, but then we discovered the fruit and vegetable stands along the road (never got around to buy the fresh fish sold next to the beach nearby - too bad - but we simply knew too little about which of all the for us big strange fish were best, and the tuna! Well. Can you ask for just some slices?).
However. The kitchen functioned perfectly, just missed our own knives:-) Bring along your favorite, if you really like cooking.
We did dine out some evenings, and it was good, but perhaps the variety found most places (creole, asian, french) made it difficult for the kitchen to be very good at one thing. Or perhaps we just missed the restaurants doing it.
Let me end by mentioning the kind welcome to The Sailfish Villas from Daniel, and the great attention from Hubert helping us in so many ways with information and practical problems before, during and after our visit. The car rent Hubert arranged functioned perfectly starting and ending at the airport. Also a thanks to Joanna for keeping the villa so very clean.
We would love to return to the Sailfish Beach Villas another time. 8 days were too few, and we should like to exploring the Seychelles and Victoria a bit better. But it seems like the southern part of Mahé is less tourist intensive, and that suited us.
