Right next to the beach. A perfect gateway to a relaxing holiday. The room was clean and spacious. Air conditioning was efficient. Will definitely recommend this place to... More

Victoria airport is 15-20 minutes away.Breakfast is good but they lack a good espresso machine.Staff is friendly and helpful. Be prepared to miss privacy as balcony is... More

We stayed at this guesthouse on the main road about 10 kms south of Victoria on the main road, and about 6 kms from the airport. We stayed primarily because of its proximity to the airport because taxis are extremely expensive on Mahe. Try $30 to the airport by taxi! 6 km! We were most surprised at the hospitality of... More

Stayed for two nights before going on to other islands. This is convenient to the airport - about a 10 minute drive along the main road south. A bit hard to find as the sign is overgrown with leaves. Lovely position on the beach but a little noisy from the road. Nice breakfast included and friendly staff. Clean and comfortable.... More
