“Nice stay between Victoria and the Airport”
Reviewed January 1, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The self-catering apartment for 2 was good equipped.
A big living room with couch, a fan and a TV set, with a select of local Satellite cannels. There is also some area outside with a small grill and a table to sit outside.
****KITCHEN
The Kitchen had everything we needed, incl a big fridge.
For cooking, there is a gas cooker, 2 big an 1 small cooking areas, where the 1 small cooking area misses the handle and needs to be operated with a knife or screwdriver.
****BEDROOM
Bedroom was ok with proper curtains to get the room dark plus aircondition.
****BATHROOM
The bathroom was ok, except that the shower cabin missed one of the 2 doors and therefor there was always a gap of 30 cm, where we had to be carful to not spill out water
****REST
The apartment is in a village between Victoria and the airport. Walking to Victoria is too far and there are no pavements next to the road. You can take the - sometime crowded - bus to Victoria or use Your own car.
The apartment is next to the street and on the other side there is a laguna. Behind the street You can look at the mountains, but overall the view is not so nice.
The owner organised us a private transfer from the ferry port to the apartment and from the apartement to the airport. It cost us roughly the price of an official taxi (20€ each), so I guess it could have been cheaper, considering a rented car cost from 40€ a day. For us it was ok, because we had to leave at 5 in the morning.
Opposite of the apartment on the other side of the street, there is a small shop, which offers basic stuff like eggs, bread, cans, drinks.

If You don't care too much about the view and the fact, that You can hardly go for a walk in the area, the apartment might be ok. If You stay longer, I definitely recommend a rented car, if You stay there.
Probably You will either find something cheaper in this category or will find an accommodation with a better environment / view or more central for the same price.

“A pleasant stay”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Me and my wife just spend 7 very relaxing days in the Mountain View Villas. It was a pleasant experience all the way through, it is clean, quite and pretty, you got a kitchen and a private little area behind the house to enjoy a BBQ or just hang out in the hammock with a nice view on the close mountains. You get a very good value for your money and we will come back if we ever get the chance.
The only little annoying thing is the lame internet, you got Wifi BUT as soon you hit the monthly traffic limit it is switched off by the local provider. For us that meant we could use it only for the first day, afterwards it was useless. Even though there is a bus stop right around the corner, you should rent a car to explore the island.

“Nice and friendly, but basic.”

When I read about the place on TA I saw only 5 stars ratings and amazing reviews. Let's be honest, even if the place is really nice, it's not worth five stars.

Hosts are really nice and welcoming. They're ready to help you with anything, and most of the time available. They offered us a few drinks and some fruits, gave us directions, etc. Lovely people.

The house we got was not big. Not too small, but not big enough to feel really comfortable for family of 3. Prices are amazingly high in Seychelles, and I guess the size of the house is more than correct for the price but don't expect a mansion.

Kitchen and bathroom are really clean and everything works perfectly except hot water in the shower for us, but seemed to work in the other houses.
Equipment in the kitchen is rather basic. No colander, for example, nothing fancy, just the strict minimum but enough to cook simple things.
Furnitures are basic as well, couches are rather uncomfortable, nice TV, with only kids channels (no movies or anything but who cares).
NO WIFI...
There's a wifi in the owners house that they will let you access but you have to go there so it's a bit inconvenient.
Lighting in the house is quite poor and rather unfriendly.
There's a private yard for each house that's very nice, with a hammock.
Sheets and towels were not new but in alright condition. Towels with a few stains here and there, but still pretty clean.

There's a picture of kids games but it's actually in the owners house. They gave us access to it instantly, but it's still a bit embarassing and feels like you're intruding. The photo on trip advisor can be misleading.

The place is located near Victoria, and Eden island, so nicely located for restaurants and shops, but a bit far from the beaches. 25mns to Beauvallon 20mns to L'anse royale. That's if you're a careful driver like I am.
There's a small shop at walking distance (200m) with food and drinks, open day and night, very convenient.
The car rental recommended by the owners was perfect, and not too expensive, they arranged everything perfectly even if at first it seemed a bit unorganized.

Overall a nice place to stay, with average comfort, but very nice hosts. I would still recommend, especially for a tight budget or if you intent to spend most of your time out, which would be the right thing to do in Seychelles ;)

“Fantastic stay!!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I spent 6 wonderful nights at the Coco villa, and loved it, my stay was initially for 5 nights, Ms Shirley was kind enough to accommodate us and let us extend for the additional night.:)
Myself being a local and having relatives scattered between central and eastern side of the island, the location was a blessing!! I will definitely stay there again the next time I am in the Seychelles !
