“Good apartment on the hill slope near Beau Vallon”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The apartments are located high above Beau Vallon beach, providing you with a fantastic view and also with a good climb if you go on foot. There are roads, of course, but they're pretty steep; if you don't rent a car, make sure to be careful when it's raining or wet, and don't go without flashlight in the dark. Seychelles nights are really dark.

Still, the apartment is no more than 15-20 minutes walk from the beach, and once you get down the road you can catch a bus to Victoria or take a walk to the beach or to the center of Beau Vallon where an ATM and a number of shops can be found. Victoria is 15 minutes away by bus, the cost is 5 Seychelles Rupees (about $0.5). Mahe has a lot of bus routes with a schedule that actually works (you can get one at the bus station, or ask the owners of the apartment, I left the one I used there — or you can just download it online). Buses from Beau Vallon to Victoria leave once in 20-30 mins and the last one from Victoria is at about 8 PM so you'll have plenty of time if you wish to see Victoria or any other places around the island. Almost all bus routes begin at Victoria.

The owner, Doris, is very helpful and they'll give you whatever you need. I had some trouble with having descent hot water but they fixed it so nothing to complain about, really. They'll also provide transfer to and from the airport for some extra charge which is cheaper than using taxis. Buses are much cheaper anyway but they don't allow luggage.

We had a great time in Mick's and Doris's Apartment. It was the best accommodation in Mahe! The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Very clean and comfortable apartment with everything what we could possibly think of and great sunsets every day. Location is excellent - very close to the beautiful and peaceful Beau Vallon Beach.

It is very great pleca to spend time with friends - there are to separated apartaments.

“The best sunset ever”

There is 2 apartments in one building. Doris and Mick live in next. Apartments are new and have everything. We found water and milk in fridge. There is also tea and coffe. Tv with dvd player. Bathroom is very nice and they provide shower gel.
1st floor apartments has nice balcony and ground floor also with some chairs. You can reach Wifi there.
They have swimming pool and nice sunbathing chairs just for relax in the afternoon.
From there we saw the best sunset ever we have seen. everyday it was different.
House is in high level but everytime when we need,we called to Doris and she pick up us from the bus stop. It's no problem for us because sunset is worth it

Doris and Mick are very kind and helpfull people. We are happy that we can stay at their apartment the best we stay in Seychelles.

“Great Place”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The apartment is really nice, modern and clean. The surroundings are really nice as well. The view is really awesome. My suggestion to the owner (although it seems the standard in Seychelles) is to provide basic cooking supplies such as oil and salt (as they do in Europe) as otherwise the guest has to buy everything. It would be great to have more TV channels and WIFI.
The owner was very kind and helpful. The disadvantage is the location as it is quite steep for someone walking and hard to find, no problem if you rent a car.
Overall, a great place to stay.
