We have 2 types of accommodation, A single bedroom apartment and a 2 Bedroom Family Ocean Front Villa. The Family Villas sleeps up to 6 persons (4 adults & 2 Kids). Both are either self-catering or B&B. Please ask for more info. Thank you.
The Ocean Jewels is very much a family affair. We have 2 beautiful girls that like to run around and play with other children in house. It's a very safe place with a long stretch of beach right at it's door step. If you like long quiet walks, sunsets and sun bathing, Grand Anse Beach is the place to be. There's only a hand full of guest houses and small hotels, so the place is almost deserted during the day. Sunsets are spectacular!
Free Wi-Fi in the courtyard, BBQ Facility, Beautiful Beach, Children play area with Swing. Fresh fish daily.
Interaction with Guests
Since adding FREE Wifi to the property, we have noticed that guests interact a lot more. We have a small traffic circle with a small tree in the middle of the courtyard, most guests sit around checking emails and drink coffee whilst planning and sharing their day in paradise. We love to see this interaction and sharing of information, so the have called this location the tree of knowledge.
Our neighbors to the right are also in the hospitality industry and have a small B&B. The other neighbor to the left is a fisherman named Andrew. He is always around and goes out fishing almost everyday. So if fresh fish is what you're looking for, Andrew is the man!
(website hidden) COCO SERVICE (If you choose to travel by Ferry, please consider the trip takes 1 hour and the sea can get quite rough at times, especially May to September) You will also need to take a taxi to and from the Jetty on Praslin at the cost of Euro 40 (return trip) and also on Mahe.
2.AIR SEYCHELLES ( We’re situated only 5 mins by Taxi from the Domestic Airport). The price is almost the same as the Ferry and you save on both ends by not needing taxis.

Other Things to Note
We also have a 2 Family Beach front Villas that sleeps up to 6 person (4 Adults and 2 Children) Ask us for more information.

We enjoy having guests from all around the world and one thing we have learnt over the years is that everyone coming to Seychelles is looking for one thing and that's rest. So we would like all of our guests to respect that and enjoy their stay with the other nationalities in house.
Brenda and Paul were very accommodating and hospitable hosts. Ocean Jewels is a beautiful little resort with everything we required. The apartment was beautiful and was well equipped having everything we needed. We were very comfortable as a family of four and had ample space for us and our two young children.
The beach us beautiful and there was a tiny convenience store right next to us.
Paul kindly helped us with our hire car and also with a wonderful tour on our first day. It all went smoothly and well.
There's been a hiccup with the charge for the stay but I understand this is on the part of AirBnB and not Ocean Jewels. paul has been helpful trying to sort it out.n
A great place and even more than that, a fantastic host. Really, best advice I have, is talk to Paul. He knows what others don't know and, hotel manager by heart he is, he will share his knowledge and help. Second best, get yourself a car so you can get around (best and must-see beaches are a bit away) ... oh yes, talk to Paul for that ...
Other than that, the place was 100% as advertised.
Der Gastgeber hat alles dafür gemacht, dass wir uns wohl gefühlt haben. Branda war jederzeit sehr hilfsbereit, zuvorkommen und unglaublich nett. Das Appartment war sehr sauber. wir fühlten uns äusserst wohl. Die Location mit der Nähe zum Strand ist optimal, ausserdem gefiel uns diese Seite der Insel sehr viel besser und die Anreise mit dem Bus zu den schönsten Stränden im Norden war ideal.
Paul & Brenda made our stay at Praslin really a great experience. All the tips they gave us where very helpful and saved us time and money. Paul organized us delicious fresh fish from the fisherman for barbecue. The appartments are spacious and very clean.
Since the island is quite small one can reach quick and easy all of the lovley places by rental car.
Thanks to everyone who was involved to make our vacation unforgettable.
Our stay in Praslin couldn't have been better thanks to Brenda & Paul. They arranged the car, the boat trip and the visit to the Lemuria (Only way to access Anse Georgette and Petite Anse Kerlan). If this wasn't enough, Paul provided us with great tips about what to do in order to enjoy/see as much as possible on the island. His tips even extended to the other islands we visited. The complementary breakfast was excellent and served in the apartment always right on time. The location right on the beach is a big + (we even got dropped on the beach after the boat trip !). As the island is small and we had a car, I would say the location is perfect as a starting point to explore the island. Really close to the airport (noise is not an issue at all).
We really felt at home in Ocean Jewels and if I am to come back I will definitely pay a visit to the resort, Paul & Brenda.
Paul was an amazing host: so friendly and really helpful. Our Praslin experience would not have been as good as it was if not for him. His encouragement to rent a car the day we arrived and explore the island the day we arrived helped us maximize our short 3 night stay since we got some rain on our second two days. Our unit, the apartment on the second story of one of the roadside villas, was very nice, very well maintained, and a pleasure to stay in. The breakfast was yummy if a bit on the pricey side (everything on the islands is a bit pricier than normal since it's shipped in), and honestly we probably could have handled our own breakfast for less, but it was really nice not having to worry about that and getting served a nice breakfast in the mornings. Paul gave us great suggestions on where to go, how to get there, and what to do on Praslin, and he even gave us some suggestions on Mahe that were great.
Thank you so much Paul! 10/10 would stay again
Steffi and I very much enjoyed our stay at Ocean Jewels. The accommodation was excellent, with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of room to relax. Paul was extremely helpful and we were very pleased with his recommendations and assistance in organising our stay in Praslin and La Digue.
