An very cozy and pleasant self-catering accomodation in a wild nature location that is trully extraordinary. We stayed at the Vanilla Suite for 3 nights. The suite is large, wonderfully decorated and very functional. A complete welcome pack was included. The veranda of Vanilla Suite, an observatory in nature. Be warned thought that this is more of a zoom in nature, not a sea view or great vistas. Situated just a turn off the secondary road to Anse Soleil, the house is only 5 minutes (by car) to this fantastic beach. Maison Soleil makes a perfect base to explore Southwest Mahe by car. There are numerous dining options nearby. The owner, Andrew Gee is a lovely guy and an attentive yet discreet host (he lives in the adjacent house), and for us this really makes a difference when choosing a self-catering option. His artistic and nature spirit is fully reflected in Maison Soleil's location, interior design and decoration. Having been in Seychelles 4 times, we can say that this is certainly one of the best self-catering places available.

Very recommended. In particular - VANILLA SUITE is at 4-5 stars. We slept in VANILLA SUITE 8 days. It is the climate. Neighborhood a home is modest. But the night calm and quiet. From the terrace you can watch the bats in the day. Must necessarily have rented a car. Car gives the opportunity to see all the beautiful beaches on the island. Restaurants wpobliżu few kilometers. Too far to go on foot.
Andrew is very helpful and a good host the guest house.
We thank him for his help in rozwizaniu our problem with sunken keys of our car.
Rarely in the Seychelles can spotkć so kind people like Andrew.

We stayed five days in this wonderful place during our honeymoon.
If you don't need a pool or a restaurant or the beach within 100m, this is lovely, intimate, the owner was very helpful and there are plenty of nice places to go nearby (you can walk to the beach, but a car is necessary)

My girlfriend and I spent an idyllic week staying here. It was just perfect and the accommodation could not be faulted. It assisted our stay in paradise with all the touches of a big hotel but with something much more personal about it enabling us to get a real feel for the area. Having spent 2 and a half months in Africa this was really appreciated and we would love to come back one day.

Meilleur endroit aux Seychelles pour Familles avec enfants - Der beste Ort auf den Seychellen für Familien mit Kids

In case you are looking for night life and / or a place directly on the beach, then do not go to Maison Soleil. The location is 10 minutes walk from the great beach Anse Soleil (with an excellent fish restaurant) and 10 Minutes walk from the delicious restaurant Maria's Rock Café or the 4 seasons resort. But there is nothing else in the area...

So in case you are a family with kids as we are (2, 7, 8 and 10 years old), then stay at one of the suites of Maison Soleil (we stayed at the Jasmine Suite). The kids have their separate room, you as well get enough privacy and the kitchen and veranda offer a lot of sheltered space outside. You will not find a better place on Mahe island for your money. To make you stay more convenient, rent a car for some days, go to Indendence Beach in the south and just enjoy the island.

It was our 4th stay on the Seychelles, the first time in Maison Soleil... but we will return to Andrew Gee's place again next time...

Room Tip: Rent a car to enjoy the beautiful beaches best

We would highly recommend Maison Soleil. We are just back from 4days in the Vanilla Suite. The house is perfectly located in the south-west part of Mahé, few step from Anse Soleil, Petite Anse (beach of the Four Season is gorgous, don't hesitate to ask the security to enter the hotel to reach the beach), Anse intendance, Anse takamaka...
The room was clean and very well decorated. There is everything you need (kitchen fully equipped, washing machine, air con, terrasse for the breakfast...).
Andrew, the owner, is very helpful and does everything to make your stay the most comfortable.
You need to rent a car to visit the island.
