Villas backed up to the mountain with a beautiful view of the cove. We loved walking down thru the garden, to our own private beachfront. Our villa was outstanding. A/C, fans, large bathroom and kitchen. All supplies to self cater. This place was perfect.
As far as the staff.... I really wish i could remember everyone's name. They were wonderful. Friendly, easy going, eager to please. Very courteous and respectful. I want to specifically mention Kyle and Jahnette. They were always available for us and our needs. And the owners, Barrie and Gretel, such a joy to meet you. It's no wonder you've been in business so long. I want to thank Gretel especially for her kind, generous heart. My husband and I will miss all of you. When the staff becomes your friends or family you know they are the best. Please relay my thoughts to the rest of your staff. I'm sorry I don't remember their names. You folks made my husband's bucket list vacation absolutely perfect.
Very good location, in Praslin near to Anse Lazio, good cars for rent, nice place to stay, very relaxing
Self catering villas with beautiful swimming pool and stunning view of the ocean overlooking Seychelles lovely beaches. We had lovely on the stilt villas gorgeous view. Breakfast was so tasty at a reasonable rate. The owner Gretel & Barry welcomed us and was so very helpful with our suitcases and gave us advice on the islands of Seychelles. Highly recommend sea view lodge on Praslin to all my friends and family! Will definitely go again and stay with lovely friendly couple who treated us like family.
This establishment is at Anse Possession with a beautiful view over the bay. There are various chalets to choose from. one free-standing studio, one free-standing 3-bedroom house and 2 chalets with a 1-bedroom apartment on one level and the 2-bedroom apartment on the top level. We stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment that is higher up (Mango was its name); there usually is a nice slight breeze higher up. The 2 bedrooms each with their own adjoining bathrooms are spacious and both have aircon. Unfortunately, the aircon in the one bedroom was not fully functional and even after we asked for it to be rectified, it only improved slightly. The apartment has a huge balcony. A washing machine is provided and is great. However, no tumble dryer or dishwasher. The cutlery and dishes are functional although a bit of a mix and match of various sizes.
It was great to cool off in the swimming pool; just note that the pool is directly in front of the owner's house.
The beach is not really for swimming, but the beach at Raffles is just around the corner and the drive to Anse Lasio is just 5 minutes. We swam at the latter every morning - magic!!
During our visit, the owner was building 2 additional apartments higher up. This created a lot of construction noise during the day, which was disturbing. The construction was not mentioned to us when we made our booking.
Also note that the locals often gather on or near the beach at sunset and over weekends and that this is accompanied by very loud music.
This was our best stay in Seychelles, perfect location, reasonable price, spacious villas. They have the best beaches nearby, good restaurants, and they even offer car rentals, snorkeling kits and a tour packages at reasonable price. If you are visiting praslin this place is perfect. Loved this place. Awesome view.
