“A piece of paradise!”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The house was in a truly idyllic setting with it's own little beach and amazing views. We loved returning here after a day out and waking up to breakfast on the patio. House itself was very comfortable with lots of indoor and outdoor space. Great for snorkelling in beach and rocks directly below the house.
The housekeeper was friendly and kind and the gardener kept outdoors tidy. All in all, an impressive beach house, which was excellent value for money. The owner was very helpful with lots of great tips and advice prior to our arrival. We would love to go back one day, preferably when the Seychelles is able to eradicate the little, black, non-biting, very annoying insects!
A grill pan would have been useful as well as some non-stick baking trays for the oven. Pots need renewing and shower holder needs repaired.
Internet was very expensive and slow compared to what we're used to, but we worked our way around this by restricting our usage to only checking sites that we had to check for day trips, restaurants, etc.
Barking dogs, a very early rising cockerel and loud music from a neighbouring house were annoying noises in an otherwise peaceful, serene location. Fortunately, the noises were not constant but awakening to very loud music with intense bass was not welcome at 8 am on a couple of the days.
A couple of miles to the main island road might put some people off from coming here, but we felt it was worth it to be in such a beautiful setting.
Little black insects only appeared in the Seychelles this year, unfortunately. They are now all over the Seychelles and come out as soon as it's getting dark, which is around 6 - 6.30 pm. They are attracted to light so try to get in the house so we had to close all doors and windows to ensure they stayed out the house. Massive clean up job every day for the poor housekeeper outside on the patio. We found these insects very annoying, but fortunately they don't bite!

Location is fantastic - just what the photos show.
Right on a small "private" beach, nice location near some of the nicest spots on the island.
Self catering, cleaned throughout the week (both inside and outside). Possibilities to grill.
Car is a must.

Minus:
- Internet is not included and you will need to purchase volume-based cards for access, which do not come out cheap (200 MB for 70 rs) and for which the credit is shared amongst all other people using the open wifi... It is fairly slow and depletes at a very high pace.
- Place and cooking instruments could use a refresh but it is usable.

We are pleased that you liked Pebbles Cove and thank you for your comments. We have reported to our service provider about the internet issue and this has been rectified - however clients are asked to "switch off data" when not in use. We are constantly upgrading our facilities and equipment and aim to providing value for money. We hope to welcome you back in the furture.

This is the perfect spot if you prefer seclusion and peace. The views and the bay are shear perfection. Take snorkelling gear as there is superb snorkelling within 10 meters of your private beach. Things to note: - The third bedroom in the house does not have air-conditioning, but does have a big fan.. - so be sure to decide who gets that room well in advance to avoid any arguments. - Also Food in Seychelles is about 200% more expensive that pretty much anywhere else in the world that I have visited... so budget accordingly.

Jane, our host, was wonderful. She not only arranged the house, but also a car for us to rent during our stay AND drove in front of us ALL THE WAY to the house, ensuring that we found it and were properly settled. - this is more than an hour out of her way and was greatly appreciated.

Thanks Jane and Maria Anne. The Seychelles is beautiful and Pebbles Coves sits snugly in the most beautiful part. This property is located in easy reach of the main airport and it is a sweet drive to Victoria.

The property is nice. It could do with a little spruce up, but on the whole it will meet the needs of any family. The drive way is a challenge, especially in the wet.

The small beach is cosy, but you'll need to walk round or drive to one of the other beaches to spend the day.

Marie's Cafe, just round the corner, is conveniently placed for a nice evening meal.

Highly recommended property.
