My wife and myself spent 5 wonderful days in August at Demeure de Cap Macon, from the 24th to the 29th. The location is up a hill, overlooking the Ocean. The view is really beautiful. The beach is a 10 minutes walk (a bit shorter going downhill, a bit longer coming uphill).
I would say it is not the best beach we have seen in Mahe (the season might play a role) but we would have moved around no matter what. In 15' by car you get to the other coast and in 30/45' you get basically everywhere. Of course you need to rent a car but that would be the case no matter where you are staying in the Mahe island. Clearly, if you are a couch potato, just waning to linger on the beach five steps away from your room for your whole vacation that this is not the place for you. If, on the other hand, you like roaming around as we do, this is your spot!
The room we had was really really nice, comfy and clean. You feel at home there.
The owners are doing their best to make you feel welcome ... and they succeed. We had 3 dinners with them (the others we wanted to experience a bit around and their indication where right on the spot) and we enjoyed each of them. Maryanna is wonderful cook, she prepared us local treats, just to mention cigale de mer and shark cooked in three different ways. She and Jean Louis will go the extra miles to accomodate your need. I am a little touchy on food because of some weakness in my digestive tract and they customised the dishes to fit me.
They are also very flexible, we changed our arrival time and call them a short hour in advance and they managed to pick us up at the airport. They also let us keep the room till late in the afternoon (6pm) to take a shower before moving to the airport, and did not charge anything for the late check out.
More than this, we enjoyed the place because of their friendliness. We'll sure go back if our meandering will be taking us again to Mahe.
