Yes this is a very good guesthouse! The surroundings are beautiful and is a calm and quiet place.The location is in the middle of La Digue ,not really close to a beach but it takes just 5-10 min to the beaches so thats not a problem.The guesthouse is very clean and nice,cant see how anybody wouldnt like this place.And the owner is very freindly and cool.He also seems to be very honest and he is helpful so there is no need for any doubt.Im sure you will have a great time at Paodise

Thanks for your lovely review. We are, as always, so pleased that you enjoyed our beautiful private guesthouse. The central location allows for easy bicycle access to the entire island. Safety is a key element to being able to relax whilst on vacation and we are pleased that you found our valued staff trustworthy. Despite this, we always recommend that you use the electronic safe provided in the room (it can fit laptops inside also for added convenience)...you can never be too careful. We look forward to you coming to stay with us again. All the best.

This is the place to stay at La Digue.
Bar none!

I dont even know where to begin...

We spent 8 nights there (waaay too short of time).
Just a short trip from the harbour (5 min by bike), hidden in a little "sidestreet", is this beautyfull place. I was at first sceptical living in a guesthouse (since I had no experience with that before).

We were met by the cleaning lady (I dont remember her name, unfortunatley).She was so nice and friendly, that she made us feel at home straight away.
Soon after came Jacob, the manager/owner, and greeted us.
He is such a great man, that makes you feel like an old friend afther 5 mins of conversation.

Each room has a half of big "balcony", with big wooden dining table that separates it in two.
If you dont want to talk to neighbours, you dont need to.
(We had a russian newlywead cupple, and those guys were awsome!! Big ups to Alexey an Liya if they read this! =)
As backdrop you have a hill with an unbelivable forrest. I spent many hours in the afthernoons just sitting in the chair, smoking my cigar, drinking a cold beer and just looking at the forrest.
Most beautyful background you can imagine.

The kitchen has all the apliances you need for a comfortable stay.

For those on a budget, its great sice you can make your own food at home.
(Witch is maybe the best choice, since the food in the restaurants is more or less so-so..with cupple of exeptions...and it not cheap).

The rooms have big bathrooms and are pretty spaceious.
Always clean and tidied up whan you get home from the beach/trip.
Jacob always came to visit in the afthernoon and check up on the guests.
He is also very helpful if you need something arranged (snorkeling/spa treatment/taxi/etc).
Again, such a great host!

la Digue in itself is a quiet place, perfect for those of us that want to run around and do stuff all the time (but there is enough to explore to have something to do every day, besides sunbathing).
You can bike around the entire island in 2-3 hours.
There are beautyful beaches every cupple miles, and I can recomend to stop by Simons shack and get a refreshing smoothie on your way to Anse Petite and Anse Coco (both beatyfull beaches).
Also, you can go to the top of the before mentioned hill (it took us aprox 1, 5 hours...but its pretty steep and we are not in the best shape).
There is a small bar right before the top, from where you can see the whole front side of the island.
Another 15 mins up, and you can see 360 around the island.
Its a awsome view and more than worth the husstle to get there.

All in all...best vacation (much thanks to the Paodise Guesthouse and Jacob) so far! =)

Room Tip: There are only two rooms, bot as good as the other.

Great guesthouse. The house has two bedrooms with own bathroom, and shared kitchen. It's modern, clean and has pretty much everything you need. It's also a safe in each room.
The room gets cleaned everyday, and we got new towels if needed.
There is no access to WIFI.

The surroundings is beautiful. The place is quiet and we spent a lot of time just sitting on the balcony and enjoing the birdlife outside.

EVERYTHING is a 5-20 minuts bikeride away.

The owner were really helpfull. He came by pretty much everyday, and we had a lot of nice conversations. He also gave us fresh fruit from his garden.

If I ever go back to La Digue, I would love to stay at Paodise. It's down to earth, homy and supernice.

Paodise guesthouse and its management thank you for another positive review. We feel great pride in knowing that our guests are really able to relax and enjoy the beautiful accommodation and the island of La Digue. With regard to WiFi, we have chosen not to have this facility as this allows guests to enjoy the island and forget the outside world. For those who desire to use internet services they are available around the island, and in particular, there is an internet cafe above the main shops adjacent to the roundabout near the ferry terminal. We hope that you come and stay with us again.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! The room was clean, with a spacious bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and the property is lovely, with a big balcony. The location is excellent, even though it's set back from the main road, the path to get to it is paved, and if you're on a bike, you can get everywhere in no time. We hired the bikes from the property, but they're not well kept and the chain on my husbands bike broke when we were riding to the south of the island. I had no trouble with my bike, but I would suggest hiring bikes from a bike hire shop, since it's the same price, but they're better maintained. Other then that, we loved La Paodise! There were so many thoughtful touches to the property - head lamps provided for riding bikes at night, complimentary water, nice soap, and even milk, juice and butter were in the fridge for us to use. If we make it to La Digue again, we would definitely stay here again!
