“Great Balcony/Terrace - great hosts!”
Reviewed 11 January 2017 for a stay in November 2016

We arrived early in the morning from Germany and had a prearranged transfer to the Drakeside. Danielle was very nice in letting us use her apartment until the upper apartment was free and cleaned from the previous guests. The apartment is spacious, clean and has everything you need! We did not use the tele but spent a lot of time on the terrace balcony overlooking the bay. We did not have a car for the few days we stayed which was not a problem. There is a small place for getting food in walking distance and if need be busses run just past the house. We actually went to the Le Meridian for dinner twice and really enjoyed the small stroll. A great way to start our holiday in the Seychelles. Thanks!

“Absolutely loved it!”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Fantastic apartment, friendly owners who couldn't do enough for us, beautiful location, even the car had a sea view when it was parked up. We were back in the Seychelles to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and Danielle and her family helped make it a really special time. We would certainly stay here again and hope it won't be too long before we do. A big thank you to Danielle and your wonderful family

“Great hospitality with amazing views”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

My husband and I stayed here for our one year anniversary and we're so happy we chose this accommodation. Danielle and Spencer are wonderful hosts who certainly made us feel very welcome. Spencer even cooked my husband fish on two of the nights. And when I needed our ferry tickets printed out Danielle was more than happy to let me use her printer. The home has amazing sea views and use of a kayak which my husband fished from every morning. And there's a small store literally two feet away if you need eggs, juice, or ice cream. The home has the needed utensils if your wanting to cook breakfast or dinner and a washer to clean clothes. Very close to Beau Vallon beach as well as the town of Victoria. Home is clean and the air conditioner works very well. We loved it here, thank you Danielle and Spencer for a memorable stay. We hope to return again!!

“Recharging. My wife and small son enjoyed the stay”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed in Drake apartment 12 nights
Our extraordinary positive feedback is not related only to large very nice and fully equipped apartment but also to very friendly owners. Warm welcome. Ready to advice where to eat, where to buy food, souvenirs, what is around etc. If sick - Danielle and her husband helped with advice and medicine. When battery of rented car was caput - helped with their car to start the engine
Our son played with Danielles boys - super, thanks
Very pleasant stay. The attention of owners was exactly OK. Not pushy, but ready to help
Quiet place
Located by the sea - takes 30s to reach the small nice beach :)
About 5 mins to get to Beau Vallon beach by car

“Astonishing view and hospitality”

A heartfelt welcome from the whole family Panagary and you may fell you´re on holiday.
As we rushed in, we loved the high-levelled and well-cleaned apartement. Above all the view from the terrace. A place to live for!
You have your own beach (rocky, but fine for snorkeling).
Groceries nearby. The fish from Mr. Panagary was perfect!
A good half an hour from the Airport (crossing Victoria) you´ll love Mahe!
Absolutely to be recommended!

“Fantastic apartment and hospitality.”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My fiance and I stayed at Drake Seaside apartment for 6 nights. It was the best apartment out of 3 apartments we stayed at on the island. The location next to the beach and overlooking the ocean was perfect, especially with our own private balcony. Spencer and Danielle and family were very welcoming and friendly, their hospitality was outstanding. The sitting room/well equipped kitchen and laundry area is open plan with a separate bedroom (2 bedrooms if required) and shower room. The apartment is immaculate and bedding and towels changed regularly. It is located 10 minutes walk to Beau Vallon which has plenty of restaurants to chose from and a variety of excursions and water sports. If you fancy a splurge, the Meridien Fishermans Cove and the H Hotel are within 5 minutes walk. WIFI was very quick and reliable, you use a prepaid voucher to access, cost was 80 SCR and lasted us for the duration of our stay. The bus to Victoria can be caught just outside the apartment and runs every 30 mins, takes 20 mins to get to Victoria. A small grocery store with a friendly owner is located just outside the driveway to the apartment which was great for essentials. My fiance used the available kayak a couple of times which is in excellent condition with easy access to the water as you are located on the beach. We will definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family and wouldn't hesitate booking again on a return to Mahe Island.
