“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

We stayed for a week in the top apartment of East Horizon and were very satisfied with every aspect of this beautiful and affordable accommodation. The location is excellent, high up against a hill side with stunning views over the east coast and great beaches for swimming and snorkeling only a 5 minutes drive away, but at the same time it takes you only a 30 minutes drive to Victoria, the west coast or any other beach on the island. We had a car which is recommendable but there is a busstop right on the main road when you descend from the house (quite a steep climb though).
The apartment itself is still quite new, so in very good shape, nicely decorated, very clean and really spacious, with all the mod cons you need. The bedroom is also very spacious, with lots of storage space and a very good large bed. It also has airconditioning which we really appreciated since the temperatures never really drop during the night. Although we were only two, the apartment can perfectly accommodate four people, there are two bedrooms and two large bathrooms (one with a shower, the other with a bath). The views from the terraces of the top apartment are to die for, especially to watch the sunrise if you get up early enough. There is also a private little tropical garden, and an outside shower, very practical when you come back from the beach all covered in sand.
The hosts, Febrona and her husband are very warm and welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. You even get a cellphone with a local simcard so you can reach her everytime you'll need (or the other way around).
We can definitely recommend this place to everybody, it's a great, very good value for money accommodation, for couples, friends or for families.

4 of us stayed in the upstairs apartment of East Horizon over Christmas 2012. We've all been to the island a few times before but wanted to try staying on the quieter side of the island (not that any of the Seychelles could be classified as bustling!).

East Horizon is a beautiful pair of apartments on the hillside overlooking the beach. Like most buildings in the Seychelles that are not actually on the beach its up a steep hill but drivable and also walkable if you're reasonably fit. If you have mobility issues then definitely ensure you have a car! The apartments are one above the other, the lower apartment not having a sea view but a nice garden with table for eating out and a separate kitchen. The upstairs apartment has a stunning sea view from a small balcony which you can sit on and a combined kitchen/lounge.

The apartments are relatively recently built so in very good condition, spacious and have all the facilities you're likely to need. Cooker, grill, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine, fridge and freezer etc.

The bedrooms have AC which is pleasant, the main living areas just fans which is perfectly workable as you'll have patio doors open all the time to allow you to drink in the view anyway. Bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of storage space, one was en-suite the other had a seperate bathroom so you basically had a bathroom per bedroom. There is also an external shower upstairs which allows you to clean off all that sand covered clothes/children or whatever without dragging it through the apartment

Febrona and her husband who live in the next house are your hosts and will look after you like you're family friends, extremely pleasant and amenable and will ensure your stay is as good as it can possibly be.

Thoroughly recommended, and great value. If you can get the upstair apartment do so as it has the sea view but I don't think you'd be disappointed with either.

Room Tip: Upstairs apartment has a sea view

East Horizon is a great place to stay in Mahe!

To begin with, we had a bad start in Mahe as we first booked a room in Villa Seychelles and had to leave after one night as we couldn`t stand the noice coming from the road and the water pump in front of our balcony. After we moved out, we had to look for another accomodation for the remaining 2 nights. This turned out to be a very difficult undertaking. We have looked all over the island, but everything was booked out or absolutely shabby or too expensive.

Thats when we found Febrona, the owner of East Horizont. A reception lady in another hotel which was booked out recommended East Horizon to us. We gave Febrona a call and she came over to pick us up and to show us the way to East Horizon.

The appartment is located in a very quite neighbourhood on a hill. Its only 15 min. drive to the airport.

As the last 100 m were too steep for us to drive, Febrona arranged that we could park at the foot of the hill and offerd to drive us up and down every time we needed. This was however not necessary, as it was no problem for us to walk the 100m.

The accomodation was opened only a couple of months ago and averything was new and very beautifully furnished, with 2 toilets and a spacious and fully equipped kitchen. Our appartment had 2 bedrooms and could accomodate 4 people, although we were only 2.

We were staying in the appartment downstairs and had a large terrace, where we had our dinner. We had no sea view, but only a view to a very cute tropical garden and a basin with fish. There is another appartment upstairs which has a great sea view.

We had an excellent bed, wide and with a very good matress. Everything was immaculately clean. And it was a great value for only 90 Euros per night.

Febrona, the owner, was really sweet and welcoming. She even provided us with a mobile phone in case we need to call her so that we do not have to spend our money calling with our foreign mobiles.

We would definitely recommend this place to everyone looking for a quite, clean and reasonably priced accomodation in Mahe.

we stayed for 3 days in East Horizon and the management were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was comparable to one of the higher-end and very good quality apartments globally. Latest furnishings, bed spreads, towels, high level of hygiene, excellent patio overlooking the ocean and the owners going out of their way to make our stay comfortable were high-points of this apartment. This apartment was definitely value for money and more. The kitchen was well-equipped and we could easily cook our meals here. Clean crockery, micro-wave and even a washing machine were useful to our family. Good connectivity to the bus station and closeness to the beach (around 10 minutes) made our commuting easy and cheap. I would definitely go back to this apartment and recommend it to anyone on a budget holiday looking for high quality accomodation. Excellent definitely. And much more value than expected.

The apartment is located on the uphill with an awesome view of the ocean on one side and greenery on the other. Early morning and evening view from the apartment works like soothing medicine. It is really peaceful and relaxing. The apartment is spacious and worth much more than the price. It is just 5 min walk from the bus stop down-hill and about 30 mins in the bus to the main market place Victoria. There are many good beaches around, which are just 30-40 mins away in a bus.
Above all this, the hospitality of the owners is worth mentioning. It felt home-like staying in their apartment and with their kind hospitality. They helped us without thinking twice whenever required.
The stay in this apartment made our trip to Seychelles even more enjoyable.
Thanks

An experience like never before, this was a very short trip and it was so good
when i checked in this beautiful new self catering apartment at Aux Cap, New family surrounded
property with breathtaking view of the sea and lush green vegetation.

The apartment is very clean and fresh with homegrown flowers fresh every morning

Stomach filled breakfast and the smell of fresh grill fish and local fruit chutney welcoming me after a lovely balade around the island. - upon request from management,

5mins walk to the beach, but i had a car hire as parking is available. Nice friendly staff.
Would definetely go back again

Room Tip: This is a place to go to if you want a nice quiet and splendid break
