“Peace and quiet in a great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Demeure de Cap Macon is a real find - the location is fantastic, and the view from the veranda of the main house, where breakfast and dinner are served, is breathtaking. Our room was lovely, very comfortable and nicely equipped, although we didn't spend much time there as we were out exploring the island most days. The location is great for exploring both the East and West coasts, and there are plenty of lovely beaches a short drive away. What made our stay really special were the really delicious dinners cooked every evening by Mary-Anna and eaten with our hosts and some fellow guests. Great food, lovely wine and excellent company - couldn't ask for more!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We have chosen this guest house after reading a lot of positive comments from the different sites and were not disappointed. My husband and I spent 6 wonderful days there from the 26th of December to the 1st of January, 2014.
If you are tired of noisy overcrowded places and looking for a calm, quiet and relaxing holiday this guest house is definitely for you.
The rooms are lovely decorated, spacious, very clean and have all the suppliers you might need.
The hosts, Mary-Anna and Jean-Louis, are the main treasures of the place, and their attention and care made our staying there like a visit to the best friends . And other lovely things that were already written by others: and nice breakfasts (fresh fruits, omelets, toasts, coffee) served by Jean-Louis and tasty dinners prepared by Mary-Anna, and the lovely after dinner chats with the hosts and the others guests over a glass of fine French wine at the terrace of the house, and a New Year party with Mary-Anna and Jean-Louis and one more couple from Switzerland at one of the restaurants of Beau Vallon. For us it was a new, great and unforgettable experience! There we met a lot of interesting people!
But you should aware of some more things before choosing Demeure de Cap Macon.
The guest house is up on the hill with a stunning view to the ocean. But if you don't like or, by some reasons, cannot climb up to the hill, this is not the place for you. And the other thing, to stay there you need to rent a car, but, to my mind, it would be the case at any place (guest house) in Mahe.
And to finish I would like to add that if we ever get back to Seychelles, it will definitely be Demeure de Cap Macon.
Thank you!
With warm regards,
Olga & Sergey

We went there in November 2012 with our 1 1/2 year old son. The place is fantastic! Rooms are nicely decorated, clean and spacious and the terrace where the breakfast takes place is breath taking. MaryAnna and Jean Louis are excellent hosts, always accommodating their guests in the best possible way. We had dinner there twice (fresh lobsters and fish), MaryAnna really knows how to cook and we had the feeling to have dinner with friends.
You would need a car, but that's the case everywhere unless you spend your whole holidays in a resort (although there were guests without a car during our stay and Jean Louis helped them out as much as he could). I would also like to mention that I am somehow chocked regarding the bad reviews on trip advisor, which I think are not fair at all!
We really loved the place and the hosts (the proof, I am still thinking about it and write this review one year later). Warm regards to MaryAnna and JeanLouis. Maria and Nils.

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.

We stayed here one night before we went to La Digue the Next day.

The guesthouse is 20minuts from the Airport. Priceless view over the ocean and the surroundings are absolutley stunning. There is a grocerystore 20minuts walk away, but no restaurant near by.

The rooms are really cosy and clean, and has veranda and kitchen. The only downside is that there were no door to our bathroom. Wifi is not available on every room, but you get great connection in the reception.

The family that owned the place were the friendiest host you can imagined. Before we came they asked us if we wanted pick-up at the airport. We arrived around 7 am and the room were ready before 10:00 AM. They made us both lunch and dinner, and the food is some of the best I eaten in the Seychelles.
The breakfast were also really great. We got fresh fruit, omelett, juice and coffee.

I really felt like home and I cant recommend this place enough.

I will start with... If we ll ever go back to Seychelles... it would be here. Excellent location, very nice rooms with terrace, beautiful surroundings but most of all a great family that owns the place. Jean Louis and Marryanna were there for everything we need. From the very healthy home made breakfast to the most tasty creole dinners. And in between infos about best beaches, pieces of advice, calls to rent a car, etc. They became very close to our hearts from the first day and we shared a lot of lovely moments together during our eight days spent here.
Thank you!
Marius and Gabriela

Don t forget to rent a car. An automatic one will be great. (left hand side driving). There are so many beautiful beaches..... Jean Louis will help you if needed with good price for renting.

We spent here a week. For this place there are not proper words to describe how good it is. Simply amazing and superb. Located on slopes, beautiful views over the forest to the blue sea. The owners take you as family friends, super breakfast with the fruits. The rooms are really big with full facilities. We felt like being at own holiday resort from the first moment we arrived. Car is mandatory as per the location.
