Sailfish Estate is a great place to stay for both its views and good rates. The villa was too big (we were just two), the facilities were functioning and Linda took care of the cleaning everyday perfectly. Debby, the owner, was really nice and very interested in our needs and problems. She even took our luggage to her own villa while we were enjoying our last day on the island.
Do not even think about renting the villas without hiring a car. The villa is far away from the city centre and there is no bus from Victoria after 6 p.m. That is why we had to come home early and do nothing at nights. We used the public transportation and the bus station is ten minutes away from the villa. Getting there is easy but turning back to the villa is a bit hard because of the little climbing. :) Also there aren't much beaches near the villa (or we couldn't find them) We had to walk about half an hour to reach a resort's beach or take the bus to Port Laguay for half an hour. So, again, do rent a car if you are staying here.
The second disadvantage of the villa is geckos (lizards everywhere)! I am too afraid of them that i cannot go outside the terrace during the night. We saw some of them in the kitchen. I know we were staying in the middle of the nature and I was happy with that but they scare me somehow.
The villa was totally great and we had a great (but tiring) honeymoon here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sailfish Beach Villas are set in a beautifully kept garden complex, planted with exotic palms, cinnamon, vanilla, hibiscus, and tropical fruits. The villas boast stunning views overlooking the calm, shallow waters of the bay of Anse a la Mouche and sleep up to five people each in two bedrooms. Anse a la Mouche is located at the south end of the main island of Mahe in the Seychelles. The villas are situated away from the noise and bustle of the capital of Victoria, yet within easy reach of local restaurants and quiet beaches with soft white sand and clear water - excellent for snorkeling. Each villa offers two large fully air-conditioned double bedrooms with king-size beds, fitted wardrobes and a dressing table. A baby cot is also available upon request. The lounge features a balcony with plenty of space for dining and some of the bedrooms also have their own balconies overlooking the bay. The kitchenettes in each villa vary in size but are all fully equipped with the essentials required for a self-catering holiday. ... more less
