“A stunning property perfectly located on an exclusive tropical island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

From the moment my plane touched down at Mahe airport, I could feel I was somewhere special. I have visited many resorts in Bali and around Australia, but the vibe here was just unique. I undertook a short, scenic drive from the airport, where I crossed the bridge onto the exclusive Eden Island. I then had to swap the car for a golf buggy – no cars are allowed on Eden Island! After a short drive through the private paradise that is Eden Island I arrived at Maison 199.

The maison is spacious and really incorporates the tropical vibe of the Seychelles, with large balconies (equipped with sunlounges) and island-style detailing around the house, not to mention great art! While the maison did feel like an authentic island-style residence, don’t assume that it is lacking in luxury, with air conditioning throughout the maison, a large tv, a great hi-fi system and more. In my opinion the highlight of the maison however was the pool, which is so large and warm that you could spend all day (or night) relaxing in it, but still cool enough that it is a refreshing escape from the Seychellois tropical heat!

In summary, Maison 199 is perfectly placed to experience the best of the Seychelles, with an easy buggy ride or walk to a myriad of pristine beaches and snorkelling destinations. The local culture is a short drive across the bridge to Mahe where you can experience the little town of Victoria, with markets, great food and shops. I know I will be back as soon as the opportunity arises.

“A little bit of exquisite paradise on a beautiful Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This luxurious property was ideal for the start of our holiday in the Seychelles. Tastefully decorated and well equipped with the most beautiful view from the bedroom balcony and outside.
With two teenage boys; the house was easily big enough to accommodate us.
The luxury of a plunge pool to cool down as well as access to a choice of beaches made us feel quite spoilt.
Would thoroughly recommend as somewhere to stay which gives you the flexibility to come and go as you please; along with the luxuries of daily cleaning and access to the commodities available on Eden Island and a short taxi ride into the capital Victoria.
Would definitely consider returning.
