An amazing place to stay at! Lovely cosy room wooden furnitured, a neat garden, a nice view! Everything is made with love! A hospitable hostess and her households ready to help with any issue! I could get any information I needed, I could just have a talk with the hostess on any topic, I could try delicious Creol cuisine dishes... More

Actually, our stay was in Nov 2012.Due to some of issue, my seychelles trip review is just uploaded. This guesthouse is valued for its price. As we drove in, there was no problem with the access towards nearby area. The owners are very nice and kind. The breakfast was good, we were served with different food every morning with a... More

This fabulously located hillside retreat has stunning panoramic views across the sea and local islands. We have never been to a place where you can touch the freindliness of the warm family who run the Calypha which mirrors the islands people hospitality and nature. The food is impeccably local and includes a wide variety of fish. As a take it... More

Absolutely charming family run guest house. Lovely rooms offering wonderful views. The food is beautifully prepared and ranks high amongst the locals as well as guests. Always helpful staff which goes a long way to making your visit to the Seychelles special. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

My bedsheets were stained and had some dry blood on the bed cover!!! When asked if they could change it the hostess who I believe is the owner was so rude!!!! I had no hot water and felt that I was an imposition for them. I will recommend anyone looking for a guest house to never use this one!! Please... More

In my opinion several times back from mainland Africa and this everything overpriced island only be choosed to honeymooners. Calypha is a kind of B&B.Approx.six ensuite rooms are clean and airy but, not spacious.In the room bed,table and chair.ceiling fan and wardrobe is ready. No A/C +... More

This is an ideal travellers, arrival/departure B&B and for those who want to escape the traditional package hotels. This was our second visit after ten years. and we still love it. Recommendation: order the evening meal at breakfast and the owner will buy and cook a fantastic Kreole fish dish. On our first trip we used Calypha as a home... More
