“Beautiful Spot - Lovely House”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The house was exactly as described just a few steps from the sea and a beach which we usually had all to ourselves. The maid Julianna was lovely and extremely helpful. The garden is beautiful and well tended. The owners John and Marlene were also very generous with advice on what to do and where to go prior to our trip, which all proved to be spot on. Highly recommended and given the opportunity would not hesitate to visit again.

Management Response

Dear Olivier, we appreciate your review and we are delighted that you had a great holiday at the Beach House. As you pointed out, the South of Mahe is rustic and relatively undeveloped. The Beach House of Anse Forbans appeals to those tourists wishing to experience the Seychelles of yesterday - away from the crowds, the concrete and the hustle bustle of large resorts. The Allamanda, the four star hotel that is a two minute walk from the Beach House, has since re-opened as a Hilton property and our guests have recently used the Hilton spa and had dinner there.

Thank you for your kind words and endorsement of the Beach House.

For the sake of our future guests, we point out that many places can be visited via public transport easily. Many of the best beaches are close by and can reached directly by bus including Anse Intendence, the Four Seasons beach, Fairyland. Anse Parnel (and its restaurant Surfers is walking distance) as is Anse Marie Louise and the Allamanda beach. Some guests choose to rent a car for two or three days to have a day of many outings. There are also two large grocery stores which are 5 minutes away by bus. The bus stop is 80 meters from the Beach House. Chez Batista is ten minutes away by bus/car and has a wonderful weekend buffet and its on the lovely beach of Takamaka. Surfers Restaurant is a ten minute picturesque coastal walk away and if you call Surfers, they may even send a car for you – complimentary! Please contact us for more details.
