Praslin and the Seychelles are our favourite travel destination since 25 years. The Islander Guest House offers a beautiful and true way to the discover this paradise. Bungalows are charming and the Godley family is wonderful. Away from big hotels here you can find the real luxury. Very good food, clean and charming rooms, a huge variety of exotic plants... More

Stayed 5 nights in the end of November/2013 and no doubt it was a high point in our journey (group of 3 friends) around Seychelles: for the kindness of the family that owns the Guesthouse; for the waiters, always in a good mood; for the excellent food served at breakfast and dinner (at the Capricorn Restaurant) - good portions, fresh...

We stayed about one week at the Islander Guesthouse on Praslin. We travelled with another couple and rent the villa. A great choice! Very new, clean, simply beautiful with everything needed! The owners and also the staff were very friendly and lovely people, we felt very welcome and they fullfilled all our wishes! The Capricorn Restaurant offers a very delicious... More

Stayed for 5 nights. Liked the apartment, clean tidy and well kept. Very friendly and polite staff. Only had breakfast which was standard fruit,toast and eggs but was very nice and more than sufficient. From what we could make out the beach has suffered sever erosion and is now rather small and has a bank of granite rocks stopping further... More

directly at the beach (30m). The "double room" IS a 2 room apt. (sleaping room + citchen + bath + terrase). All very clean. Beach is nice, sunset. Walking distance to great Anse Lazio 35 minutes. Beach is sandy but may have some underwater rocks (carefull). With no waves shnorkeling is possible (swim 20 m to the rocks).

The room I had was beautiful and very large, and there's a nice porch facing the water. There is a nice size fridge & a small kitchen. There is a safe in the room. By far my biggest gripe is the extra charge for the A/C - it was the only place I stayed in the Seychelles that tacked that... More

We didn't stay at The Islander's Guesthouse, but we went there to eat in their Capricorn Restaurant. It is quite out of the way from the general areas of Praslin Island, however trust me the location here is to die for. I have been everywhere on Praslin to look over the sights, and it took me 3 days to find... More

We have been now about 8 times on the Seychelles (Mahe, Praslin, La Digue). Since we found the Islander Guesthouse on Praslin, we prefer to stay here as our base camp and make excursions from this place to other islands. This year we have been here the 4th time – and we will go there again. It is very individual... More

As already mentioned in another review: this place is basically at the very end of the Western Road on Praslin. You will not be able to get anywhere from here if you don't have a car. Yes, this place is quite remote, but that also makes it quite quiet. Guests stay in a number of relatively large cottages, each of... More
