We had such a fabulous stay at the Maison vue des Iles. From the very start of our trip, Claudette went out of the way to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Greeting us with a delicious welcome drink after a night flight was just perfect. She also helped us get reservations at the very best restaurants on the island - using her contacts to get us in when they were supposedly full.
Arriving at the house was a little tricky. The road is steep however once you have done it a few times it is not a problem and it is much like any of the other island roads.
The house is great. We stayed at its maximum capacity (6 adults) and the house still felt spacious. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate in, either cooking in the kitchen or having a bbq, most nights. When we weren't off exploring, we enjoyed sunbathing at the house or snorkelling around the rocky beach. Luckily the house has great beach towels provided as we forgot ours. We also walked down to the sandy beach just down the road when we fancied a leisurely swim.
We would recommend the house if you want a relaxing self-catered break in the Seychelles.
My husband and I (from New Zealand) were fortunate enough to stay at Maison Vue Des Iles for a week with a group of friends. We all had the best time. The house itself is on a quieter part of the island and you will need a car to get around. The house was beautifully presented and kept in an immaculate condition. There were two decent sized double bedrooms with aircon and another large double bed on the second floor with a fan above the bed (this was more than sufficient to keep us cool at night). The outdoor area had some fabulous hammocks, a large deck, and BBQ area which we made the most of. The views were absolutely incredible - a completely uninhibited view of the sea and smaller islands in the distance. When full tide, you can also go snorkelling at the beach below - this was one of the better areas we ended up snorkelling in during our week in the Seychelles. Finally, we also want to give a special mention to Claudette. Claudette was a fabulous host. She was always available to assist with our questions, make bookings for us (particularly in places that were already booked out!), and a genuinely friendly person. For a small fee, she also picked up our food shopping for us. Thanks for the fantastic stay! We would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Praslin.
We have just returned from the vacation in which we spent seven nights in this house. In one word summarizing the experience: amazing. The location, the landscape, the quiet, the fully furnished and compact house, the courteous and quick response of Claudette and Ryan. In short our opinion its worth every penny. highly recommend.
Thank you to Claudette for our wonderful holiday at Maison Vue Des Iles! My husband and I stayed in March with a couple of friends and had the most wonderful time. There's so much to do on the island and Claudette's advice and help to organise ourselves was essential to us getting the most out of our stay. The house itself was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. I'd recommend having some shopping done in advance - arriving to a full fridge after a long flight was lovely! The house is down a quiet road at with only a few other properties nearby. The road is "rustic" so you'll need a hire car and a reasonably confident driver but the property's seclusion is its key selling point - the perfect peaceful base from which to explore a wonderful island paradise!
We have just arranged to return to Maison vue des Iles in October with friends, having booked a week on a 44ft Catamaran followed by a week at this fabulous place!
Maison vue des Iles is the place to be if you want a totally private, relaxing holiday with a view from the verandah to die for! My wife and I spent most of our recent stay in December just enjoying the view, which includes a stunning little island right in front of the villa, crystal clear water, rolling surf and colors only seen in magazines: glistening white sandy beaches, unbelievably green vegetation and the magical blues of the ocean. Claudette and her team (Ryan and Debbie) made our stay dream-easy, from the beginning of the booking process through to the end of our stay. We were collected at the airport and driven to the villa, the rented car was delivered there, we were shown the property and the normal ins and outs of the various electrical implements (which included dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier) and were helped getting online for our internet addictions. All in all, our weeks' stay there was one of the best breaks of my life and I can recommend this property absolutely wholeheartedly. Thanks so much Claudette - we will cherish these memories and look forward to creating a few more later in the year!
