Georginas had everything we wanted like good wifi, breakfast, and right across the street from the beach, but we didn't expect the host to be so friendly and helpful in helping us get to our next destination. She also gave great advice for shopping and eating. We enjoyed eating pizza while watching the sunset just a short walk from georginas and a good ice cream shop is right next door. Breakfast here was also better than expected with lots of good fresh fruit!

Georgina is by far the best host of the four we used during our visite to Seychelles. All the staff made us feel welcome and provided top service. Hopefully we will return to Seychelles and have the pleasure of staying at this little pearl of an property.

Spent a night following a cruise of The Seychelles. Charming, small B+B. We had a large room with balcony overlooking the ocean across the road. Spotless and clean, bed very comfortable, breakfast excellent. Very good value for the price. Fun beach bar across the road, great location for a short stay.

The guesthouse is located in beautiful colonial house. Comfortable rooms with fresh flowers and comfortable beds. Friendly managers for small fee let us check out later. Location can't be better. Just 50 m to the beach. A lot of restaurants, shop everything in the walking distance

Had a short stay at Georgina's cottage. Great location facing the Beau Vallon beach. Many restaurants nearby. The room was clean with a balcony. Breakfast was just the way I like; simple continental. The ladies were helpful. Special thanks to Chantal. Will come back soon.

I was the first honored guest within Georgina's new guest house and it was a very pleasant experience. I have visited several guest houses on Mahe and even one on Praslin and I can definitively say that at the moment, with their new facility, you’d be hard pressed to find a better value. Prices around Mahe have all gone up, but even so, Georgina’s is still very reasonable at 70 Euros a night, which includes a good-sized breakfast that includes fresh fruit, toast and jam, tea or coffee, and eggs cooked like you like them. The rooms are very stylish (very modern looking), clean, and include two twin beds pushed together and have modern conveniences such as a nice fan, air conditioning, refrigerator, flat-screen television with the two local channels, a wardrobe, places to lock up valuables and a mirror light. The whole guest house complex feels very secure and requires keys to get into the building itself at night.

Besides that, there are the normal conveniences that Georgina’s has always provided, which is excellent service, friendly staff, a very accommodating hostess, and an unbeatable location. It is less than 30 meters from the nearest bus stop to go to Victoria, and of course, Beau Vallon beach is right across the street, so one can easily go to sleep to the sound of the Indian Ocean or go play in it at will. All of the tourist attractions that Beau Vallon has to offer are a very short walk away, from restaurants, to pizzerias, to clothing shops, to glass bottom boat tours, dive shops, water sporting rentals, and a whole lot more.

If you prefer quaint stays to resorts and you prefer friendly, personal, and cheaper stays to extravagant, decadent, and impersonal, then there really is no better value than Georgina’s – you really won’t be disappointed. I was impressed enough to take the time to write this review.

I could not believe my ears when, after unpacking my bags and sleeping a nap I was woken up by the owner, knocking nervously at the door. She told me I could not stay because she had booked the room to someone else who had just arrived, and wanted me to show evidence that I had really booked. Considering I had confirmed twice (the last one, a couple of days before going), you can understand my shock. Eventually the lady had to recognise I had really booked, but the other person was going to stay for 4 days, whereas I, for 1 day, so she preferred the other one.

I cannot say they were rude, or anything. They actually lend me the phone to call another house I had planned to stay a couple of days later and let me leave the bags on their living room, while I spend the afternoon at the beach nearby, before I went to the other house which fortunately was vacant for me. But still, I have to advise other visitors to take the confirmation email print with them and make sure the owners REALLY book the room exclusively for you (I don't know how, since I did twice and still they failled on me).

The good thing about this house is its location, since you can go to the beach just by crossing the road and the bus is just right next to it.

I have to say I prefer the guest house La Rocaille, at Anse Soleil, since it's cheaper, the house is much better, the owners are nicer and careful with their bookings. On the other hand, the location is not as convenient - but the owner picks you up at the bus stop. They were so nice that in the end they took us by car to the airport without paying anything.

Georgina’s Cottage – Mahe, Seychelles

I must admit I didn’t take any pictures of this cottage itself, however, take note that they are scheduled to close starting in March 2010 for renovations.

Good points.
1. Good value for the money
2. Fairly safe area however common sense still needed
3. Beau Vallon, where cottage located, still doesn’t have that touristy feeling though it could change one day
4. Right across the beach but I would suggest walk down ways for better area. Nice long stretch of beach to walk along
5. Can be picked up/dropped off at the airport by the owner Eddy (20 Euros one way) about a 30 min. drive.
6. Near restaurants, but some can be pricey. The Baobab Pizzeria is about the only reasonable rate restaurant though only serves pizzas and spaghetti plus a salad, fish and chips (not always) but a great view of the beach.
7. Decent breakfast served
8. Not far from the Coral Strand Hotel where you can hang around at their beach area and have a drink as well BUT there is a sign that their pool/lounge chairs for guests only
9. The high-speed Internet place is about 10 or 15 min. walk away and beside the Internet is a little store where you can pick up snacks/drinks. The Coral Strand Hotel has Internet as well but more expensive.
10. There is also a store about a minute or two walk from the Cottage to pick up snacks/drinks/wine/beer
11. Eddy is very helpful with questions e.g. diving suggestions, car hire. I had Eddy give me a tour around the island (80 euros).
12. Near the bus stop ......... about a 20 minute bus ride to Victoria, the capital, where there are great restaurants, a fun little town, the smallest capital in the world, to walk around. Also can take bus around the island to get to other places though would take a long time

Bad points
1. Not the greatest for a solo traveller since there won’t be much people around to socialize with (may be a hit and miss and was a miss for me so I found rather boring). I had 6 days there and I think 3 or 4 would have been enough.
2. Not much night life to go to (I’m not into night life but for those who are)
3. The walking on the roads aren’t the greatest, especially at night. You might want to pack a torch.
4. I won’t recommend Al Mare Restaurant & Bar, and neither did others as overpriced and they are rude

Perfect location! Cross the road and you are on the beach. 5 minutes walk from the main restaurants and dive centres in Beau Vallon and there is a bus stop outside with buses into Victoria.

Very clean, simple rooms with helpful staff. The owners are very friendly and relaxed and have great advice on things to do and where to go.

Exactly as was advertised on their website. I heard some complaints about breakfast but it was simple and fresh which was perfect for me.
If I was being picky I would say that perhaps the bathrooms looked a bit tired and the wifi was a bit slow at times but otherwise I was very happy with my stay.
