There are very few places to stay on La Digue that are directly on the beach, so the location of Casa de Leela is as good as any. Although it's inland, you can get to the beach by bike in just a few minutes. Definitely hire bikes! We walked our first day and although walking is relaxing it is so fast to get around by bike! We chose the bed and breakfast option and the breakfasts were large and very good... eggs, bacon, toast, fruit, and tea and coffee. Our bungalow was large and very nice! We had the one closest to reception and never felt bothered by the location. In fact, we could get some wifi signal and therefore could use wifi in our room, which is impossible for any other location on the property. You will have a cozy sitting area, porch, and kitchen, although the kitchen could have used some regular sized glasses other than just the tea cups. Although it is "self catering" we only stayed 5 nights and could not justify spending so much money to stock up on cooking items that we would not be able to use up during our stay. It would have been nice to have a few "essentials" in the fridge, maybe some butter, spices, cooking oil, mayonnaise, ketchup, etc, things that can stay there from guest to guest. Needless to say, we never used the kitchen for cooking meals. It was nice to have the fridge and microwave for our leftover pizza from the really good pizza place just down the road! Great leftovers for lunch. Over all, we loved our stay. We especially liked that added touch of pick up/drop off from the ferry so we weren't left wandering around looking for the guest house.
Make SURE that you have the owners cook for you at least one night! Some of the best food we ate anywhere in the Seychelles. We had them cook for us on our last night and were kicking ourselves for not doing it sooner. So good!
