We stayed in a very large 2-floor apartment with large kitchen, eating and living room area and two bedrooms upstairs. The furniture is ok but nothing special. The best thing about the apartments is the view of Anse a la Mouche. The son of the owner is very helpful and also the cleaning ladies do a great job. Be aware that there can be ants and geckos but this is typical for the Seychelles unless you stay in a 5-star hotel where everything is sprayed several times a day.
Be aware that you need a car, but you should get one anyway to go around the island to see all the beautiful beaches.
We unfortunately never had the chance to cook dinner there (although they even provided a BBQ) because the only real grocery shopping option would have been a 45 min drive to Victoria. All other shops in the area do not carry any fresh or cured meats, vegetables and fruits are also not readily available and as far as we found out only available from the street merchants...
In any event, we paid 110€/night (booked directly on the properties' website) and can only recommend the place if you do not want to spend > €400 / night for a really nice resort. In our opinion, Sailfish is the place to go and a way better deal than any of the 3 or 4 star hotel options on the island.
- 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
