“Simply mesmerizing”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

There are only a handful places in the Seychelles, which can compete with Arno's mansion.
The scenery here is outstandingly beautiful.
Let me describe that:
If you are sojourning on this cozy covered terrace, enjoying the fresh air with views all around, mainly to the sea, embedded in a sea of plants and blossoms, you have to pinch yourself to be sure you are not dreaming.
While letting your mind wander, you discover in the distance the two islands Praslin and La Digue you must have absolutely visited.
We are time and again in the Seychelles, a year last May three weeks and once again for four weeks this year.
It was pure chance, that lead us on to the jewel called Kaz ( house) Bulinger and we do not regret a single time.
We love the house with the approximately 71qm large terrace, the three roomy windows ranging from flooring almost to the ceiling, the fully equipped kitchen leading to the terrace, the living room aligned with the terrace providing flat- screen TV and free Internet flatrate ( free flatrate Wi-Fi), the three air- conditioned bedrooms, one of them an en suite room and the additional air- conditioned bathroom.
Last not least the owner Arno himself. He lives on Praslin. But if there is a problem either technical or organizational, then he is accessible in a jiffy and all problems will be solved quickly.
His mother Colleen is a lovely cheerful lady looking occasionally for the right and she is always for a joke and chat and that' s why we closed her into our heart.
Sarah, the maid, is the good spirit of the house. She does all the housework very reliable, because she is very organized.
At the end a well-intentioned piece of advice to all, who want to go places in the Seychelles: It is only a question of mind over matter to pass the daily challenges, eg driving on the left lane coupled with sightseeing and shopping tours, getting the tickets for the ferry crossing to either the island of Praslin or La Digue and so forth.
Be courageous! And laugh at the very rare bad hair days!

“This villa provided far more than was promised!”

Beautifully situated on a sloping hill with splendid sea-views from the 3 bedrooms and the open veranda, downstairs. Within easy walking distance of great snorkelling and shore-fishing spots. There are also numerous intimate swimming beaches in close proximity to the villa. Kaz Bulinger offered much more than was promised and the accommodation is ideal for a self-catering group. It has a large, fully-equipped kitchen, with all the modern appliances that you could wish for. Victoria is within easy reach. Many small shops selling the basics are close by. Our group of five adults enjoyed the serviced, well-maintained home and could not have wished for better. Take a bow Arno, your mother Colleen and the housekeeper Sarah – your friendliness and professionalism blew us away!

“A home away from home for our family holiday”

When browsing for a place to stay on Mahe , the outside living area of Kaz Bulinger certainly grabs your attention. We were not disappointed.

The handover was easily arranged with Arno and Pauline , communication was always positive.We had one small AirCon issue that was quickly resolved.

The housekeeper Kathleen was also very helpful. She organised a couple of meals for us which was great.

Machabee is about 10 Minutes to BeauVallon & 15 to Victoria , We had a hire car but the bus stops nearby . Car access is good with parking at the base of the stairs to the house.

Overall a very clean modern home away from home. Heaps of space to relax with family after a day at the beach.

“A perfect place for perfect holidays on the Seychelles”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great time in this wonderful house! Perfectly located in the north of Mahé, with a most beautiful view of the Indian Ocean, lots of very clean and comfortable space and a host family who is always available when needed to make sure everything is in order, made this place the perfect location for our 5-weeks family holidays on the Seychelles. The photos don’t promise too much!

Anyone who decides to stay in this wonderful place should definitely consider to follow the advise of the host family to ask the maid to cook some Creole food, which she does for a little extra tip. She is a fantastic cook! We never tasted any better food during our stay and are very thankful for this experience.

This house is a top location we can highly recommend with a host family who really cares. Arno can also help to get a car rental for a very good price, which we very much advise to take advantage of.

A big "thank you" again to Arno, his mother and Kathleen from Anja, Sebastian, Louis and Leon.
