“excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stayed only 4 days in Villa Eve and we were very sad to leave so soon. The stay in the villa was very comfortable and suitable for our children (6 and 4 years old). They played a lot outside and indoors at the room upstairs which is quite big. We were very impressed when we arrived and we found the fridge full of items including 4 cocos to drink. It's exceptionally clean with all the toiletries you need when you get in. For us this place is unforgettable especially for the fantastic creole food that Judith prepared for us. All the food was very tasty and with a very nice presentation. I asked her for the recipes, I'll try to cook creole food back home although it won't be the same...!! We'd love to go back there soon!

4 weeks in Villa Adam and everyone was happy with it.Very clean and comfortable.Plenty of space for all of us.Caretaker JUDITH was the heart and soul of the place.She is there 24- 7 and always with a warm smile willing to cook or help with queries.Very impressive.
July was not the right time to visit weather wise,Beach full of seaweed and non stop wind blowing but rent a car and drive to other side of island and the Anse Lazio and Anse Volbert beaches are fine.Had some great trips across to Curieuse Island to see the huge tortoises roaming around and the family had wonderful sightings scuba diving.

We stayed in Cherubim apartment for a week in April 2013 with our four and five years old children. We can highly reccommend this self -catering, especially for very helpful and willing staff.
We had everything for pleasant stay - the comfortable room was clean, spacious, with very good equipment.
After our one week stay in La Digue, we come back for a three days, to finish our holiday at this unforgettable place.

They said seychelles was a paradise with white beaches and deep blue oceans and so it was but it was just that. Besides the serenic and deserted beaches there is not much one can do on the island of praslin. Yes there are various trips and activities one may indulge in like scuba diving , snorkelling and /or visiting the neighbouring islands there is absolutely nothing one can do on the island as 2 out of 3 days i was there the seas were rough and it was raining in bits and bobs and hence we couldnt do any of those trips.E isoand lacks good bars , restaurants , shopping and entertainment zones. The only places we could go were the beaches which were not idyllic due to the bad weather.

So that leaves us with the place we were holed up in. Nestled between the indian ocean lodge and a few other hotels is Ocean Villa consisting of two villas i.e. Villa Adam and Villa Eve . We chose villa eve as it was the only one available but we dont regret it. It is a fabulous property. Exceptionally clean self catering villas with every facility one could wish for. We were also given a fridge full of goodies including wine. Beers, eggs, milk , bread, sodas courtesy ocean villa which i think is an extremely kind gesture the place being self catered.

The care taker juliette and her colleagues were extremely courteous and helped us with everything we needed. Very sweet people. The villa itself was spacious with a comfortable sofa bed and spacious balcony overlooking grande anse which is where the villa was located. The wifi was free too and the jacuzzi inside the bathroom was a bonus (although the one in the verandah wasnt working).

Also closeby is a supermarket , a church and a restaurant by e name of breeze garden which served excellent pizzas and creole food. It also had a take way serving creole food which is extremely cheap by the local standards.

I would highly recommend this place to any couples /families looking to spend some nice time in praslin.

We stayed for 1 week in villa Eve in July 2012. Everything was great: the comfort of the house (up to the highest standards, including fan and air-con), the location and most of all the service. Julietta the housekeeper was absolutely helpful and welcomed us with fresh fruits and cocos to drink. She facilitated all we needed and cooked delicious meals.

The self-catering option is much better in my view than the hotels. In particular, you can buy your own fish and get it cooked or cook it yourself, then you are sure of getting a very good dinner. The only drawback of this place was the amount of seaweed the beach on this part of the island gets in July. But it was no problem at all since in 15 minutes by car you can be anywhere you choose in this beautiful island.

We will come back!

Room Tip: Beware that in Villa Eve the 2 rooms have a double bed, no separate twins in any of them. The bed up...

We spent the first two weeks of July in Villa Adam, together with friends - two families with kids (7 people in total, kids ages between 9 and 12). WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE IDEAL ACCOMMODATION!

The villa was very spacious, was clean and well maintained. The caretaker and service staff were always around and keep their hand on the property very well. They were very friendly and were always willing to give advice or assist in any way they can - be it from lending us a cooler box to use when going to the beach, to cooking dinner for us.
The beds were of good quality.

We rented cars (at a good rate, arranged by Ruby, the friendly and efficient agent handling Ocean Villa's reservations), so loctaion didn't matter that much, but in retrospect we were also very happy with the location. It is very near the airport and on the first and last days that was very handy (flights to South Africa leave terribly early in the mornings).

The villa is right on the beach, which is very nice. This side of the isalnd is prone to trade winds in July, so the beach is not good for swimming, but that din't bother us (given comment RE cars). As a matter of fact, the wind was really nice to have in the evenings when you return from a full day in the sun, since it cooled things off a bit. We slept without switching on the aircon, rather opening the doors and windows and let the breeze provide natural cooling.

We won't hesitate one moment to strongly recommend Ocean Villa for anyone visiting Praslin, but would strongly recommend that you rent a small car as well, since you want/have to explore the island.

I always check reviews on Tripadvisor but have never been moved to write a review, until now. My family and I recently spent an idyllic 5 days staying in the Eve villa on the Ocean Villa site. It couldn't have been more perfect. Peace,tranquility, beautiful scenery and wonderful staff to help with every need or enquiry. We feasted on barbequed barracuda and chicken curry made with the milk of the coconuts grown outside our villa. The staff were able to prepare food to suit all our tastes, creole and mild.
For us the highlight was taking the 'Mon Mimi' boat out for snorkelling and fishing, it was very reasonably priced. Piloted by the wise Thomas, we felt smug on our private little boat while great people laden tourist boats limped alongside. Have never been so relaxed in my life!
