“Perfect helpful owner Gretel & Barry sea view lodge on Praslin”
Reviewed April 30, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Self catering villas with beautiful swimming pool and stunning view of the ocean overlooking Seychelles lovely beaches. We had lovely on the stilt villas gorgeous view. Breakfast was so tasty at a reasonable rate. The owner Gretel & Barry welcomed us and was so very helpful with our suitcases and gave us advice on the islands of Seychelles. Highly recommend sea view lodge on Praslin to all my friends and family! Will definitely go again and stay with lovely friendly couple who treated us like family.

“Relaxed atmosphere and great view; spacious accommodation”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This establishment is at Anse Possession with a beautiful view over the bay. There are various chalets to choose from. one free-standing studio, one free-standing 3-bedroom house and 2 chalets with a 1-bedroom apartment on one level and the 2-bedroom apartment on the top level. We stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment that is higher up (Mango was its name); there usually is a nice slight breeze higher up. The 2 bedrooms each with their own adjoining bathrooms are spacious and both have aircon. Unfortunately, the aircon in the one bedroom was not fully functional and even after we asked for it to be rectified, it only improved slightly. The apartment has a huge balcony. A washing machine is provided and is great. However, no tumble dryer or dishwasher. The cutlery and dishes are functional although a bit of a mix and match of various sizes.
It was great to cool off in the swimming pool; just note that the pool is directly in front of the owner's house.
The beach is not really for swimming, but the beach at Raffles is just around the corner and the drive to Anse Lasio is just 5 minutes. We swam at the latter every morning - magic!!
During our visit, the owner was building 2 additional apartments higher up. This created a lot of construction noise during the day, which was disturbing. The construction was not mentioned to us when we made our booking.
Also note that the locals often gather on or near the beach at sunset and over weekends and that this is accompanied by very loud music.

This was our best stay in Seychelles, perfect location, reasonable price, spacious villas. They have the best beaches nearby, good restaurants, and they even offer car rentals, snorkeling kits and a tour packages at reasonable price. If you are visiting praslin this place is perfect. Loved this place. Awesome view.

“Beautiful, Clean and Scenic”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

I had a bad experience with a previous rental in Seychelles and was very skeptical about this one. However, the moment I stepped foot in this property, all those fears were removed. Gretel maintains the lodge in beautiful and clean condition, the villas are quite spacious and have very scenic views. The owner is responsive and I had an issue with the TV on the first day, which was promptly resolved.

The sea view from my villa was stunning and the place is nicely decorated with fairy lights in the evening. Gretel also arranged for a car rental for me on quick notice before I arrived to the island.

Mosquitoes is a concern at the property, but the rooms are equipped with repellants. This is a problem everywhere in Seychelles though.

“Perfect hideaway on Praslin”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
3
people found this review helpful

Beautiful spot on the rather quiet north coast of Praslin. The cozy villas and appartments are clean, homely furnished and decorated and give a perfect relaxing holiday feeling right away from checkin. Stunning view from the patios/balconies overlooking the lush and green tropic garden with the bay in the background.
Location is ideal for exploring the spectacular nature of Praslins north with great nature/mountain trails, MTB-routes and some of the most beautiful beaches of the Seychelles. Hosts were friendly and very helpful with all kinds of organisation, planning and booking. They even offer different boat tours incl. barbecue to small nearby islands (Giant Tortoises, birds, snorkeling,...) at very reasonable prices.

“Villas with a beautiful view”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

These villas are even better than I had anticipated. They are reasonably priced and have all the facilities one needs for a perfect self-catering holiday. There is a washing machine for each villa which, for us, is indispensable on a two week holiday. Gretel also let us use an iron and ironing board; she goes out of her way to please her customers. Each villa is slightly different in size and price so it is personal preference. As well as giving us some fruit and delicious avocados from her garden, she arranged a Piccanto automatic hire car for us with Premium Car Company who gave excellent service and charged a very reasonable 35 euros per day.

Although the villas are peaceful with lovely views and total privacy, the beach is not ideal for swimming but it is very good for boat trips. However they are ideally situated because one can actually walk down the road and through the Paradise Sun Hotel to the beautiful but busier beach of Cote d'Or with its hotels, restaurants, money exchange, boat trips and shops.

“Good location, beautiful view from the appartment”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Very good location in Praslin, next to Anse Lazio and Cote d'Or. Gretel was very helpful and available for us. Very nice day in Curieuse. The beach down the guest house (Anse Possession) is beautiful however not very pleasant for swimming (seaweed and silt).
