Nice lodge, well equipped. Nothing for travellers that are looking for beach holidays next door. You need to have a rental car to get to the beautiful beaches of Mahé. Supermarket round the corner or by car in the near of the airport.

Nice Apartment. Nice kitchen. Near the beach. Everything perfect. Good parking space. Just 8 Kms from Airport. Nice host. Clean rooms. Would be there on next visit. Even when my friends go I will book this property for them.

Room are very clean, daily service of course. Location too close to road but good as a starting point to Victoria and around Mahe. Managers and staff very friedly. The only thing that was unsatisfactory is the weak wi-fi in the rooms. Better to be in the room in the middle of campus.

We can recommend this accommodation to anyone who loves nature around them. They are cottages amid botanical gardens and bathing in the beautifully clean pool. At the reception all flashing two giant turtles. You can do paddock behind them. You can even sit on them and scratching them on the head. I recommend to rent a car.This will help ensure... More

We booked Castaway for our first few days in the Seychelles and were disappointed to quickly realise you need a car here. The 'beach' opposite the entrance, is mostly underwater and the main road runs directly past with only a wall to sit on at high tide. Not attractive! We caught the bus to Anse Royale but then had to... More

We found Bruce's property through AirBNB, and were attracted by it's location and value for money. Brigitte gave us lots of information and booked our rental car as well, very convenient! The lodge itself is spacious and clean, good large bed and kitchen with everything you'll need. The only thing we found a bit less was the water pressure in... More

We stayed at the little cottage for two, which is situated directly under a mango tree. The mangos falling night & day as if bombs were landing on the tin roof made for 4 fitful nights of sleep.

I and six other friends stayed at the Lodge for two nights, and overall had a fantastic time. I booked through Air BnB with Bruce's representative Brigitte, who was an absolute pleasure to deal with and she provided loads of great information about the island, local attractions, car hire and different fishing charters (Through Bruce). Upon arrival, Bruce showed us... More
