We had a pleasant stay at the Annex in March, many thanks to our host and his family
The host, John, treated us really well. We rented a nice car from him one day for 45 Euros, including gas. John also helped us obtain fish from a local fisherman, and provided us with a constant flow of bananas. He also drove us to the ferry when we left Praslin.
The location Anse La Blague is a bit isolated from the rest of Praslin. It offers a decent beach, but no stores of restaurants. To go somewhere, you need to catch the bus, or drive a car. We weren't interested in having a car all of the time, and the busses only departed about 5 times daily from Anse La Blague. John offered us transportation over the hill, which really helped us. Once over the hill, it's easy to either hitchhike or get on a bus.
The apartment itself is really what you could expect from a budget accomodation. It has a nice AC, providing for nice sleep. We cooked a lot of food in the kitchen, which does its job. The bathroom is clean and has a nice shower. You will find some insects in the apartment, but hey; it's a tropical country?!
In summary, the accomodation is in budget-range, is well run, and benefits from a friendly host. You will need to plan how to get around the island, since it's a bit isolated.
