Captain's Villa is a true gem of a guest house, run with great charm and efficiency by Flolise and her husband. The welcome was warm and sincere, the house has a wonderful airy reception hall and spacious bedrooms, and everywhere is so spotlessly clean both inside and out that we felt we would happily eat a meal off almost any surface. Our room had comfortable twin beds and a useful fridge, with a huge shower room en suite, along with excellent air conditioning and access to an outside terrace. Breakfast is served outside on a wide terrace at the back of the villa overlooking the lovely garden, and the range on offer was very good. An evening meal can be ordered and enjoyed in the same location, and as there are not too many alternative eateries in the vicinity (unless you have a car) the offer to eat dinner at Captain's Villa is most welcome. We found the 2-course evening meals to be very good value, beautifully presented and very tasty. The location couldn't be better - just five minutes away across the coast road is one of the best beaches on the island. All in all, we would recommend Flolise and Captain's Villa unreservedly, and if we are lucky enough to return to the Seychelles we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Everything is beautiful, the food they make is just amazing. 😉 The fresh fish cooked in the creole's way is magnificent and Ranga the cook is a very good. The hosts and the staff are extremely good people and are very helpful. The location is perfect for relaxing and laying back, its situated just across the road to one of the nicest beaches on the island in my opinion. The villa is very clean no complaints from me just compliments, keep it up guys!

The villa located very close to the beach and I think at the best part of Mahe island, co you’ll of minted drive from other mesmerizing beaches. We had a super comfortable and very clean room, with a nice terrace. The atmosphere is wonderful, the staff is super kind, helpful and friendly, and at the same time everything is professional! The breakfast is very tasty and I recommend you to stay there for dinner as well, with tasty food, wine and reasonable prices. We definitely would like to come back to this place what is more friendly than a huge hotel, but much more professional and comfortable than a regular bed and breakfast place. That was our first time in Mahe, but for sure not the last one. Thank you for the owners and workers for the nice experience!

We loved our stay at captains villa. We went in march 2018, i promised to write a review, a little late but here it is! Breakfast was very good. The beach across the room was beautiful and the hostess was very kind. Our room was small but as a couple that's all we needed, it was clean. Hopefully we will be here again.
