“Nice and relaxing stay”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

We booked appartment which had 2 separate sleeping rooms ,two bathrooms and a spacious kitchen with the livving room.Veranda is amazing with a nice view over the bay Anse a La Mouche.
The garden is nice too.There was a barbecue place right in front of our house.Staff is nice and polite.We spent 10 days there.Keep in mind to rent a car to be able to visit Baie Lazare and Anse Takamaka.There is a restaurant a diving centre and a small cafe some 300m away in the village along the main road.

We spent almost 3 weeks at La Residence: wonderful experience!
In spite of the "basic" type of accommodation, we found the location, the view, the cleanliness, the courtesy and service, the assistance from all the staff just superb.
In particular, Mayna and Marie France have always proved excellent in their attention to us, making our stay really enjoyable and very pleasant.
We definitely recommend La Résidence in Anse la Mouche to whoever wants a good self-catering establishment and good value for money.

It was really nice to spend a week there - the team is really friendly and helpful. Everything was well organized for our arrival. We rent a car for all the week. This is compulsory if you want to discover Mahe . la residence is really well located and the west coast is according to us the most beautiful coast ( from north to south). The villa is really clean and the view is beautiful. as just fantastic to be there. Thanks to all the team and we will definitely come back.

I'm happy to recommend La Residence. The service was very friendly and helpful with everything. Houses were cleaned daily. The kitchen was fully equipped. Houses have a nice view of the bay. Near the house, there are two restaurants. I spent really very nice vacation there.

Room Tip: I suggest choose house -not apartment

A couple of friends of mine, my wife and I spent a week in this beautiful guesthouse: the villa was large and clean, the service was very good, the sight fantastic.
A wonderful vacation in a fantastic island where we we will go back very soon.
It was a pity we had a couple of rainy days in a row. But that happens and it is nobody's fault.
Our compliments.
P.S. An advice: a pool would have been nice during low tides.....

Coming from La Digue to Mahe was in a way disappointing. Hectic traffic (compared to almost only bicycles at La DIgue), reckless driving, but strangely we saw no accidents. In the taxi to la Residence apartments we decided to move with a taxi or by bus- no rent a car.
The building with the apartments , at la Mouche bay- nice looking but not a swimming or snorkeling place, has a nice view and garden.The first apartment was big, nice view. The furniture was more of a picked here and there, no style, the gas stove was very old, the kitchen knives were missing ( my swiss knife helped). the air condition broke down in the evening,it was hot - first floor. We could not sleep.Fortunately, there was an apartment free downstairs, so we insisted to move . The apartment was better looking, but the lightning in both was neon tubes, simple lamps and really annoying. The kitchen ware was really basic, we had to snitch the toaster from the upper apartment, there was none.The electric sockets, half of them was broken, had to plug, unplug other stuff, for charging my underwater gear.
The apartments were clean, the staff friendly.
Walking from the apartments to the restaurant and the shop (10-15 min. one way) is not pleasant at night, even with a torch, you have to walk on the road.
There is the night guard, the drug use and traffic are on the rise in Mahe.Do not leave anything important on the beach is the current advice they give you, but we had no problems.
We stayed 5 days.
The best spots nearby for swimming, snorkeling and free diving were Anse Soleil- go left as far as you can, and Port Lunay- left, surprisingly good coral,better than La Digue,tame fish, the visibility was average- 4-8 metres, in Port Lunay even only 2 metres.Anse Royale was below average..At La Digue visibility was somewhat better.Still we saw the three spotted angelfish at Anse Soleil, and big brain corals and juvenile fish at port Lunay.

The buses are cheap. on time,they go every hour or so, the last ones in the afternoon are very crowded

Thanks to Pascal Libanotis, our taxi driver, who brought us and picked us everywhere on time.

Dear pathfinder_9, It would have been so much better for everyone if you had actually stayed on La Digue. Good luck in your choice of accomodation next time.

I am biased! I love the fact that I can just get away from it all. I feel the if you need more than is provided in this great gem then you should stay in the city.
I have always felt the owners and staff, to be very helpful going out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and is there anything else you might want(fresh fruit,someone to cook for you at least once and fill you in on what is on locally etc) Nothing is too much trouble, all you have to do is ask. Five star style, in shorts and a t shirt - what more could you want.
I have stayed here on many occasions as a couple, family and tribe of family Everytime it has been fantastic- don't change

Room Tip: All the rooms and villas are great so take your pick if there is one available
