The closest bus stop is 5 minutes walk away, whereas shops, restaurants are about 10 minutes walk from the Villa.
Although Lemongrass Villa is mountain side and rather secluded from the rest of busy Beau-Vallon, it is still close enough to where the action is yet far enough from the 'madding crowd' so one can enjoy peace and quiet in an exotic tropical garden reminiscent of the old Seychelles.
Terrace with sea view, kitchen is shared but there are only 3 rooms in the villa and it does not get crowded as most guests eat out.

Philippa is such a nice person!! She helped us with everything, and my boyfriend and I had a couple of problems we needed help with.
She booked our ferry tickets, she organized everything at our departure day.
She handled everything with a smile. Her family is also lovely. We were so sad leaving her and them as well as our great accommodation.
We had a wonderful big room with beautiful furniture in it.
The view from our balcony was just stunning an unique! Seeing the sunset every evening was incredible.
Our big bathroom was an eye catcher with all the lovely details in it.
Beau Vallon beach is a very beautiful place to stay for, but also populated with many toursits. There are many restaurants as well.
Renting a car is very useful because there is a very sharp increase to the house.
Thank you Philippa for the great time we had with you and your family.
Best regards, Christina and Wenzel
We had a little different appartment than this, but it was also very nice. All you need is in this apparment. The view was beautiful, the area peaceful and quiet. Service was great! Not a long walk to the first nice beach.
The only two things are: there's no (free) Internet available at all places and the way to the lodge is very steep. (Older) People should take a car...
We did stay at the hillside house and it was absolutely nice! The stay was quite, clean, not far from the beach and the staff was super nice! The room was big with direct access to kitchen and the balcony from which you can see the bay and the sweet garden around the house (incl. coconut, avocado, lime trees). Very nice :) The location is great. Would stay there again, Thanks!
My husband and I stayed at lemon grass lodge for five fantastic days :). The highlight of this lodge is by far the superior hospitality provided by all staff members. On more then one occasion we required assistance, service and or help and we were met with great suggestions and we were well accommodated. The only down side to this lodge is the hill! The access point is a steep steep steep hill. We did it for two nights and had a car for two nights, so as long as you are relatively fit its okay.
Got upgraded to better apartment on the property which was nice. Apartment was great, was multi-level, full kitchen, A/C, washer, etc, patio, etc. Lemon Grass Lodge is located on top of the hill with great views, but you probably need a car to get to it because it is quite steep. Only bad thing about property was lack of internet reliability. There was only one internet username for the entire property but everyone had to share it and only one person at a time could use it. We never met Philippa, but did meet her brother. It wasn't really like he knew what was going on and didn't know the internet password (instead told us to go buy a sim card and pay for it out of pocket), breakfast schedule, check out time, or really anything we had questions about. Given that it is Seychelles, $100 a night for this apartment was a great deal, but it is just important to keep your expectations in line. I'd recommend this property to backpackers and people who are okay without constantly being connected to the internet. Staying at this property was way more of a local experience, as opposed to staying at a 5 star hotel, which we were fine with and enjoyed.
