First and foremost I would like to extend my kindest regards to the owner of this little place in haven Flossy. She made our two week stay very enjoyable and often made us feel like the hospitality levels of self catering merged with ones of a five star hotel. She made us feel very much welcome and we got to know other members of her extended family as well. Which contributed to a real experience of the local spirit and soul of the place. The location was a balance between being away from the civilisation and yet convenient to get around even by local bus service but the car will give you a distinct advantage, although I personally liked the busses as you get to know locals and it adds to overall experience. Property itself is surrounded by lush tropical garden and fruit trees as a bonus. While you can hear the road in a distance it doesn't effect the overall feel of being surrounded by the jungle. Property is clean and has everything you need to whip up a breakfast as well as a fancy diner. Flossy also treated us to some local cuisine. Bread fruit chips were fantastic snack however then she cooked us a three course diner consisting of local fish, curry, salad and souses. It was a delight. Over all the Tropical Garden has been a major part of our experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a genuine travel experiences and local culture and hospitality. My best wishes and kindest regards to Flossy, Patrick, Jan Paul (possibly misspelled) and Ned for their hospitality and kindness.
Hope I got the names right if not please do forgive me I am still a bit woozy from all the scenery and natural beauty of Seychelles islands, people and ocean.

We get a very warm welcome on arriving.In the fridge was everything that we need for the first day.And a fruit basket as well.That is very nice because after this long journey we felt at home.It is a peaceful place in the middle of nature.No noise.The owners dogs are friendly.If the are to pushy,a bit water from the hose helps.A car is convenience otherwise consumed one to much time with waiting for the bus. We would definitely come back.
This was really amazing. ..The house seemed to be like home to us.Half a meter just near the house beautiful
made our dreams come true with my darling. What made us to wonder is the owner who was friendly and just like a mother to us.Hmmm it was hard for us to leave the place. ..It was our "home sweet home" we miss it
We spent in Tropical garden altogether 1,5 month. We like this place for special experience, we like the owner & environment. It was great pleasure every time come back from the coast to mountains & feel to be in difference climate. Highly recommend this place for spend some times. Hope once come back again!
The owner of the property is incredibly hospitable, nothing was too much. In fact she even bought my husband and I a bottle of champagne to celebrate our marriage. We much appreciated the deliveries of the delicious bread fruit and star fruit. In the Tropical Garden you are surrounded by an incredible lush garden, which makes it a cool environment to return to after a day of sweating it out at the beach. To get to the beach we traveled both by car and bus. The bus was a 5 to 10 minute walk from the property but be prepared for small hills. Near the bus stop is a small shop to by basics from but for decent shopping it's better to head into the center, which is 15 to 30 minute bus ride. The house it self is a lovely quaint property, that felt more like a home than a rental. We stayed for 21 days and we found that it had everything we needed for the duration of our stay. I think that this is a fantastic place to stay and it really is an excellent price for all that you are getting. We would definitely stay here again!
