I stayed in Ocean View 6 nights in a ground floor room during my stay in Mahe for scuba diving. Room was like a small apartment with self catering facilities which was good considering that Seychelles are not a cheap destination. Mattress was a little bit two soft, linen and towels were changed twice during my stay.Guest house is not... More

We stayed for a couple of nights on reaching Seychelles, in December 2012, before proceeding to La Digue. The guest house was a perfect starting point which reflected everything good about Seychelles- friendly people, good guides, homely, cheerful, relaxed, private, quiet and pleasant. Vanessa and her colleague looked after us very well. We got a great breakfast, the rooms were... More

We were delighted with Ocean View Guesthouse. It is excellent value for money. We just got back from a week's stay (July 2013) and couldn't fault any aspect. Vanessa and the other lady in the kitchen were really helpful and trustworthy. They cleaned the room beautifully every day and kept the apartment from turning into the Sahara what with all... More

We stayed here for 6 nights on Honeymoon. Cecile is a lovely owner, but sadly we didn't see her very much as she has other guesthouses; it would have been nicer to be welcomed by the owner immediately otherwise you feel a bit lost. The area is also a little quiet and a bit shabby, not what we were expecting.... More

I found this place with the help of reviews through sites search. Everyone was saying that Cecile, who takes care of the guest house, is a nice person. I guess it was the main reason, why we chose that place. And i saw the pictures, the pictures turned out exactly the same in the reality. The house has really nice... More

This B&B is just the perfect place on the Island. The staff is very welcoming and willing to tell you everything about their Island. The price is very reasonable and the rooms are very clean. The breakfast is simple but with fresh products: Eggs, fruits, coffee or tea, pancakes. You can order dinner in the morning. The dinner is very... More

The rooms are clean and are equipped with an A/C, the staff is friendly. The hotel is next to the sea side (you have to cross a road to get to the beach). They serve coffee, tea, juice, fruits, eggs and homemade marmalade in the morning. The bus stop to get around the island is located about 10 meters away... More

We have found this place unexpectedly very nice - big spacious rooms(you get 2 bedroom apartment basically) for 3 persons. You have your very own safebox, locks on every door inside, a big TV(but with just 2 local channels - but who needs it at all ?:)), spacious bathroom, a balcony with 2 chairs, a big king size bed and...

We booked this vacation rental relatively late with not too many options left. However, Cecile the owner was very helpful and proposed the best available solution to us. This included the possibility to change our apartment from the ground floor to the first floor after the second night. We arrived early morning from the airport so we were immediately offered...

We arrived by taxi from the Jetty arranged by the guesthouse owner. We got a lovely room on the top floor with two bedrooms, bathroom and a balcony. There was a tv, a safety locker and a fridge in the room. The breakfast was excellent with coffee, toast, home made jam, fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice and eggs of your... More
