We (4 adults and 3 young children) spent a blissful 6 nights in these two villas. You ill be hard-pressed to find anything comparable. Waves crashing just below your bed, wonderful views, "private" little beach where the kids spent hours - great daybed and hammocks on balconies. Truly paradise.
Marc (the owner) was always very friendly, responsive and helpful. He clearly poured his heart into these two units (where he himself previously stayed).
The villa is well-equipped with everything you would expect plus kayaks, snorkeling gear, etc. Within walking distance to the fish market and across the road from a supermarket.
Count yourself very fortunate if you could stay in such a wonderful place.
I am a British Architect who recently stayed at this wonderful Villa. It is situated right on the beach front with the main balcony hanging over the sea. The sunset views are incredible and I felt so lucky that I had discovered such a wonderful place. What's more you are well looked after by Helen who runs the house on a day to day basis. Nothing was too much trouble, from cooking to washing, to even calling me at 4.00am as a wakecall so I wouldn't miss my early morning flight! On top of this the owner Marc was extremely hospitiable and cooked me an amazing traditional meal from the Seychelles! I also met his business partner Tania who was wonderful. I couldn't believe that I had found the most beautiful house with the most beautiful people running it who genuinely care about you. This place is a real true gem. I'm already booking it for next year and I can't wait to go back every year for the rest of my life.
We spent 6 nights at the end of our 2 week Seychelles holiday....talk about saving the best for last!!! From the photos and the price I expected a much bigger place but believe me it is worth every penny and the house itself is a wonderful stone and wood Seychelles house with real palm leaf roof and ceilings. You are literally living on the rocks with a staircase to the cutest swimming beach. Snorkeling right at the beach and around the rocks is amazing....Marc, Tanya and Helen are always within reach, welcoming and helpful.....perfect hosts. The two bedrooms and wonderful bathroom upstairs are fantastic...we slept every night with our glass doors open so as not to miss the sound of the waves.The Kitchen is professionally equipped, so much so that my husband, who is a chef, could find everything he needed....he was impressed. The lounge is cosy with all the satelite channels you might need. However, you will spend most of your time on the fantastic terrace, from which you can fish. Right across the road is a supermarket which stocks everything you need, including gorgonzola cheese, salami and parma ham. Thank you guys for a wonderful stay at your beautiful house.
i find this cosy villa situated on the small rocks viewing the ocean exceptionally secluded and romantic! The soft sound of waves, sea breeze and exotic flora.... it's really unforgetable!
the villa is well-equiped with all modern comodities, besides it has the perfect location: less then 10 mins it takes to get to the beau vallon beach!
I would highly recommend this marvelous accomodation to anyone who is in search of a secure and comfortable place to stay on the Mahe island!
We have spent at the villa Marquise the best vocations ever: rustic creole style of the villa is so special with its natural palm roof and big wooden veranda. Sunsets are marvelous and with the villa's spotlights we could observed rocks & ocean even in the night. The beach is perfect for snorecling or sweeming and looks unforgettable.. we could stay on the villa's sun deck almost 24 hours, it's stairs with open air shower goes into the sea straight away. The house is fully equiped; the design of the bedroom ceiling is amazing; Marc and Helen created for us the relaxing homely atmosphere, we stayed there as in the real island paradise among coconut trees. We appreciate a lot all they do for the guests and how they care of them. We would be more then happy to get a chance to come back to this beautiful house...
