First of all I'd like to say I am grateful to Agoda for making a full refund for the experience myself and family had in this accommodation. Agoda has also currently removed booking offers of this accommodation from their website. I have travelled to many hotels and self catering accommodations around the world and have never come across one like... More

Bay View Villa is one of the best villas I have ever seen in Seychelles, the room is very clean, tastefull furniture with everything you need, nice pool, great view over Anse Boileau. The view and the snorkling underneath the garden is fantastic. The staff in the villa is very kind and helpful. We had forgotten our snorkle equipment but... More

The rooms are clean, pretty and spacious. The property is managed well by Christian and Valerie and they gave us very good recommendations on where... More

We stayed at Bay View Villa for two nights after a last minute schedule change by Air Seychelles which necessitated a stay on Mahe. We based our decision on reviews here and on booking.com. The Good: Bay View Villa lives up to its name and has a beautiful panoramic view of Anse Boileau bay. It also has a view of... More

We stayed two nights at the Bay View Villa and found it a very convenient launch pad for exploring the south side of the island and its amazing beaches. The Valerie and Christian are super friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast on the terrace was fantastic. I would certainly stay here again on another trip. The only downside was that... More

My last trip in Seychelles was a mix of La Digue and Praslin but due to very late arrival on Mahe we needed a place to stay before taking the first ferry to Praslin next morning. So I made a reservation for one night at Bay View Villa and it was the best choice I made because it is one... More

We spent about 8 days at Bay View Villa and had a fantastic time. Valerie and Christiane are super hosts and we enjoyed every minute with them. The villa is large, spacious and very well appointed. The view is simply stunning and for water lovers, the ocean is a few steps down the garden path. The underwater life is quite... More

first, you need a car for this side of the island of Mahe. Once that's established this is a great base for exploring and resting. Quality of accommodation is excellent, really clean & well furnished. Only breakfast available, but fabulous quality & service. Owners are really approachable & gave us the "what to see & do" guide. Including verbal &... More

This is not your average guesthouse. It is definitely higher end. The furnishings and fixtures are very high quality. It is spotless and the view is to out of this world. It is well worth the little extra for a sea view room. There is a nice spacious feel to the house and it is very tastefully decorated. The managers... More
