Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fabulous getaway
We stayed with German friends on this lovely island. The cleanliness of island was amazing. We are ocean fly fishermen. We were able to wade out right from our "villa". The three bedroom villa, right next to the beach, was fantastic. It has a bathroom for each bedroom and a lovely patio to dine and just enjoy the sunsets. Gretel and Barry (owners) were amazing and could not do enough for us. We will definitely travel there again.

Douce et agréable atmosphère au bord de l'eau !
3 nuits passées avec 2 ados et un enfant de 20 mois dans la "apple villa". Bon accueil, personnel souriant. Excellent emplacement entre anse Lazio et Côte d'or. Nous avons loué une voiture neuve sur place à 45 €/jour avec siège bébé neuf. Cadre très reposant face à la mer malgré la route (peu passante). Mer calme pour les enfants en bas âge. Logement très bien équipé, sanitaires modernes et propres. Belle terrasse de plain-pied face à la mer. Excellent rapport qualité-prix.

Wonderful Bungalow Nestled in the Treetops
While in the Seychelles we stayed in 5 different villas. This was one of our favorites. Relaxing location with an enjoyable view of the cove. Comfortable, quiet, and private. These bungalows are privately owned and the family lives on the property. They were wonderful host and very accommodating. They even had cars available to rent by the day right at the villas. Being across from the cove made our day on the water easy as well. The owners nephew arranged for our day on the water which included a visit to a few islands, lunch with the giant turtles and some of the best snorkeling in the area. Thank you Gretel and Barry!

Un giudizio difficile
Si tratta di una struttura con appartamenti indipendenti dotati di cucina e terrazza. Partiamo dalle cose positive: gli appartamenti sono collocati in un giardino bellissimo e curatissimo, con piante meravigliose e tartarughe giganti. La nostra terrazza era di fronte al mare, nessuno ci vedeva quando eravamo lì. Davvero una favola. Ma... Veniamo alle cose negative: - la pulizia. Quale pulizia? Il frigo era sporchissimo, dentro c'erano persino dei peli. Le federe puzzavano di umido e in quattro giorni non ci hanno mai cambiato gli asciugamani - la reception: introvabili. Se avevi bisogno di qualcuno o qualcosa dovevi sperare di trovare in giro il giardiniere (nepalese, gentilissimo, per fortuna c'era lui) - l'accoglienza: la persona che ci accolti (la stessa delle pulizie) è stata a dir poco sgarbata, non ci ha dato nessun tipo di informazione e quando l'abbiamo chiesta ha risposto a fatica e in modo scocciato. Tremenda. - la posizione, tutt'altro che comoda: serve tassativamente l'auto o il bus (ma l'ultima corsa è alle 18) per raggiungere le spiagge o il centro abitato dove far spesa. - Il SeaView lodge vanta una spiaggia privata che però è impraticabile: sulla strada, un metro di sabbia, va bene giusto per bere una birra al tramonto. Infine una chicca. Avendo una bambina di tre anni abbiamo prenotato un lettino aggiunto che non c'era. In effetti ci hanno poi chiesto se lo volevamo scusandosi di averlo scordato, ma noi abbiamo detto che non era importante. Quando siamo andato però a saldare i conti il lettino non è stato scontato (ce ne siamo accorti solo una volta partiti, purtroppo).

A quiet inexpensive place with all the services you need
We spent a week in one of bungalows at Seaview Lodge. Loved it! Location of the Lodge at Anse Possession is excellent - 10 minutes drive from the best beach on the island, Anse Lazio, on one side and 5 minutes from a small town on Cote D'Or with restaurants and shops. The owner, Gretel Laljee, took a really good care of us. Whatever we needed, it was enough to tell her and things just happened. From having dinner and breakfast delivered to our bungalow (better food than in most of the restaurants on the island) to finding an automatic rental car at snap of our fingers (yes, you need a car at the island), organising a snorkelling trip to St Pierre, BBQ at Curieuse... We had an absolute privacy, the bungalow was cleaned daily and everything worked perfectly fine. Beds were very very comfortable. Although kitchen was pretty well equipped, we did not use it. There was nothing that we could complain about. A strong recommendation to everyone.

Many thanks to Barry
Stayed there for 14 days in July/August and we had a great time. Many thanks to Barry for his kindness and help!!!!! Tips: near to the bus stop. Buses every 1 h, cost 5 rupees/ 10 rupies with AC. Last bus from Anse Volbert about 18.30. Taxi 100-150 rupies. Cash exchange at Anse Volbert. Best restaurant Les Lauries- buffet about 1000 rupies per couple, Cafe des Arts- good for lunch and dinner ( more expensive). Taxi to Anse Lazio 250 rupies. Dont buy any souvenires - cheaper on Mahe. Worth to see Anse Volbert.Anse Georgette,Anse Lazio, Vallee de Mai, trip to Couriouse Island and to Felicite Island ( we didnt go because sea was rough). Ferry to La Dique- 27Euro per person. Bike on La Dique 100 rupies.

Outstanding views
Praslin is a very small island with very little to occupy the visitor. The temperature is around 30 degrees with about 100% humidity which is very uncomfortable. Add to that the insect bites, and it was not comfortable. The beaches looked pretty but there was a lot of seaweed on them. The food shop was a bus ride away though well stocked. The shopkeepers appear to prefer euros to rupees but I would recommend changing your money as their exchange rate is unfavourable, with prices rounded up. Buses stopped at 6pm but as there was nothing to do after dark it didn't really matter. This is not a venue for lovers of nightlife. The villa was very comfortable apart from the lack of easy chairs - 2 deckchair type chairs was all that was on offer. The host and hostess and their children were very helpful and welcoming however. Would I go back? No. I had cabin fever after just one week. Perhaps a hotel with a swimming pool, bar and entertainment might have made it better.

Unbeatable alternative to hotels and resorts
Stayed there for 10 days in November 2011 and we had a great time. The house is big and spotless with daily cleaning service. It's right across the (small) road to the beach and 50 m from the bus stop with round-the-island service (including Anse Lazio) running every 30 minutes. Owners are very friendly and cooked for us on several occasions, which tuned out much cheaper and hassle-free than going to the restaurant. The house has all the mod cons you're looking for. Seychelles is clearly not a cheap place to travel so renting a house is by far best value for money and this place is great.

Qualche dubbio...
Qualche dubbio sulla struttura è scaturito principalmente dalla "maleodoranza" della biancheria da letto. I cuscini, sostituiti su nostra richiesta, hanno ripresentato lo stesso problema dei precedenti. Non credo possa rivelarsi un alibi l'elevato tasso di umidità di certe giornate seychellesi... Altro dubbio sulla struttura (nonostante la cosa, di fatto, non abbia comportato grossi problemi) è nato allorché, a fronte della nostra richiesta preliminare (via e-mail) relativa a "2 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms" (vedasi "Inquiry Details Sent via TripAdvisor.com Property: 301742"), ci sia stata offerta (sempre via e-mail), spacciandola per un'occasione (allo stesso prezzo dell'offerta alla quale eravamo interessati), una locazione con una sola camera da letto e un solo bagno, senza che la riduzione spaziale venisse specificata. All'arrivo, la conferma del mio sentore di approssimazione. Non sono caratterialmente portato a discutere oltre un certo limite, né la mia anglofonia risulta ormai così fluida: va da sé che, dopo uno scambio di vedute con la gestione, abbiamo deciso di concedere il beneficio del dubbio a una situazione non troppo nitida fin dai preliminari. Detto ciò, e abbandonando il terreno della polemica (che, in ogni caso, tale non vorrebbe essere), va ricordato che le Seychelles andrebbero ormai vissute secondo i canoni ordinari di valutazione turistica, poiché il tentativo di risparmiare qualche decina di euro può anche significare doversi poi adattare a qualcosa in meno di quanto ci si attenda. La posizione della struttura è gradevole, e tuttavia Anse Possession è esposta al gioco delle maree, con il risultato che in certi momenti della giornata l'acqua si ritrae per alcune decine di metri. Rispetto al medesimo viaggio che feci oltre una quindicina d'anni fa, inoltre, è da rilevare che alcuni (soggettivamente?) pessimi insediamenti massivi hanno fatto la loro apparizione quasi ovunque nell'arcipelago interno. Anche sul lato nord di Anse Possession (Seawiew Lodge si trova sul lato sud della baia) si può vedere, incombente, ciò che intendo. Va poi ricordato che occorre prestare attenzione, nel caso di noleggio-auto, che la guida a sinistra può anche rivelarsi disagevole, qui come a Mahe, e le strade sono quel che sono... Altra caratteristica delle Seychelles (ma non solo, ovviamente): la sera, dopo le 21 (e mi riferisco al nostro classico periodo estivo), non ci si può attendere, tranne che all'interno delle grandi strutture alberghiere, di incontrare molti simili a passeggio. Credo occorra conoscere preliminarmente certe cose, non definibili negative a priori, poiché suppongo l'industria turistica dimentichi sempre di citarle. Dal mio canto posso dichiararmi soddisfatto dell'impostazione "fai da te" della nostra vacanza, al di là delle onnipresenti difficoltà contingenti. Abbiamo alloggiato, a Mahe, presso Villas de Jardin (Port Glaud) e, a La Digue, presso Patatran Village (Anse Patate). Oggettivamente ciò ha amplificato il relativo disagio denunciato per la struttura in oggetto.
