Located on the beach with just a few metres of white sand between you and the vast sea. Spacious indoors with nice details and housekeeping keeping it clean and tidy. Very friendly owners that also helped arranging boat trips and snorkling exkursions. Not at all as many tourists at the beach as some previous visitors mentioned!

The near to the beach is perfect, and also the small apartment is very nice. You are near restaurants and everything you need. Get a car if you stay longer. (Don't go to the boat house, avoid their buffet if possible). You find pretty restaurants around you that are better. The booked breakfast was quite good (person is coming at... More

“It does get warm in the room (as you would expect / hope during a break in the Seychelles!) - but if you open the upstairs shutters at both the front and the back of the apartment you get a wonderful through breeze that keeps you wonderfully cool - plus if you are desperate they have now added air con units (but what's better than an ocean breeze?)”
