We were delighted with Ocean View Guesthouse. It is excellent value for money. We just got back from a week's stay (July 2013) and couldn't fault any aspect.
Vanessa and the other lady in the kitchen were really helpful and trustworthy. They cleaned the room beautifully every day and kept the apartment from turning into the Sahara what with all the sand we would bring back from the beach! The nearest beach is about 5 mins walk, but it is small, especially at high tide. Beau Vallon is 15 mins walk along the main road (relatively busy for Seychelles standards) and restarants can also be found here.
There is plenty of car parking even if all the apartments have rented cars.
We stayed in Takamaka room which we thought would be a double but actually had an extra bedroom attached which was useful for us to store our things (even though there would have been enough room in the main room anyway). the bathroom is in good working order. There is a safe in the room and bars on all the windows so when you're out there are no worries about security. The views from the balcony were amazing, we watched lots of sunsets from there.
We had a meal by the owner at the Beach House one night. Transport was provided free of cost and the meal was one of the best we had in a great location!
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Breakfast is the best we had.
Quite, easy to find, location with great views.
Clean, well-kept rooms.
There was some noise from dogs in neighbouring houses but this was the only issue we found, and nothing that could fault the owners of the guesthouse.
