Other Things to Note
Please bring your own beach towels : )
Zelda took care of everything even when she was far away.Amazing property you would not feel like coming back. Fully organised area, beautiful property, Lovely location.I have no words to describe the (website hidden) and my Husband are in love with Seychells and the time we spend at Zelda's (website hidden) advice for future guests it is not possible to get a jet ski or kayak on rent at eden Island. Zelda it will be a great idea to add a kayak or Jet Ski with your listing so that guest can rent it from you.
I would definitely recommend and came back to stay at your property.
Thank you for sharing your amazing property with us.
Lots of love

I visited the apartment in July 2013 with my wife and 4 y.o. son and I can say we have enjoyed absolutely perfect holidays and mostly thanks to this apartment and Eden Island. In terms of service, room space, design, cleanness, comfort, location - everything was wonderful and exceeding expectations. It was great to rest on the empty secluded beaches and pools of Eden Island getting around on the nice small club car, playing tennis on their free (at the daytime, at night you pay for the lights) tennis court, going to their gym and restaurants. You have your own manager on place to ask all the questions and decide all the matters. You have all the shops, restaurants and services you need at one place on the Eden Island and it's just wonderful for quiet holidays with a family. The only thing you will not find on the Eden Island is nightlife as well as footpaths and promenades to walk in the evening after 7-8 pm. And be ready to buy the local sim card (do not use Airtel, better connection for Cable & Wireless) to use the internet, since no Wi-Fi in the apartment and I guess on the whole Eden Island. The weather in July was very comfortable for both beach and sightseeing - low humidity, nice breeze, not more than 28-32 degrees C, water a bit cool but again fairly comfortable, no big waves on the Eden Island at all. So if you like to go to Mahe just check the weather for the season on Mahe and if it is ok book the Zelda's apartment - you will be happy 100% guarantee!)) And you will find unforgettable view of the marina and mountains from the apartment as a bonus!
For Russian visitors: если вы хотите провести спокойный семейный отдых на Сейшелах, не сомневайтесь - апартаменты и сам Eden Island - то, что вам нужно! Великолепное стильное, респектабельное место без каких-либо малейших нареканий!
We stayed at Zelda's appartment for 5 days and there is only one word that summarize our experience "AMAZING".. From reception to leaving the place, everyone made our stay a bliss and Zelda is The SuperGirl.. The apartment was crystal clean, the views it provides is priceless, the kitchen was flawlessly equipped and everything was just perfection.. What else i can say, even our 7 month old daughter enjoyed it so much.. Eden island itself is a blissful place where we got all our essentials from food to groceries.. The Eden Plaza itself is a small bazaar where they have small bank, shops, resturants and nice seating areas by the bay.. Bravo and Maharaja are awesome places to eat.. We rented a car for 3 days which was arranged by the help of very sweet Abignale from Eden Island staff.. After a long hot day we cooled off at beaches on Eden Island (3 private beaches).. All in all i would suggest everyone that if Seychelles is the Paradise then Eden Island is the Center of it and Zelda's appartment is your place fixed in it.. I know mine is...
Моя семья -я, муж и 10-летняя дочь -проживали в апартаментах Зельды с 26 февраля по 3 марта 2013 года. Апартаменты находятся на Eden Island, по-моему, это одно из самых прекрасных мест на Сейшелах, во всяком случае, очень удобное для жизни. По приезду нас встретила сотрудница службы размещения, на электрокаре провезла по всей территории, показала, где находятся бассейны, тренажерный зал, теннисный корт, пляжи -их 4, магазин. За апартаментами закреплен собственный электрокар, на котором мы передвигались все дни пребывания на Eden Island. Так же девушка помогла нам арендовать автомобиль, который мы по окончании пребывания на Маэ оставили в аэропорту. Сами апартаменты очень понравились, оформлены со вкусом, действительно открывается с балкона прекрасный вид, поют птицы, прямо под окном планируют летучие лисицы, каждый день после обеда шел теплый дождь, после которого над заливом вставала радуга -потрясающее зрелище! На кухне этого гостеприимного дома есть вся техника и посуда, о которой может мечтать самая взыскательная хозяйка, есть стирально-сушильная машина, что очень удобно для быстрого просушивания вещей и полотенец после купания. Ежедневно приходили убирать апартаменты сотрудницы клиринговой службы, приходили в наше отсутствие, оставляли после себя повсюду цветы. Недалеко от апартаментов -5 минут езды на электрокаре -есть торговый центр Eden Plaza, там магазины с одеждой и сувенирами, два кафе и ресторан креольской кухни, также есть небольшой спа-салон, где девушка с Бали делает отличный расслабляющий массаж. Очень рекомендую выбирать Eden Island в качестве основного места проживания, он так удобно расположен, что живя здесь, вы на автомобиле сможете объехать весь остров, искупаться на всех пляжах и посмотреть все достопримечательности. Надеюсь, отдых на Сейшелах понравиться вам так же сильно, как понравился моей семье!
Great Place, lovely appartment, peacefull island and the best place to be.
With this appartment you have your privacy on Mahe. You have all required things nearby. The people on the island are really helpful. The best thing is to rent a car and discover the island by your own. The small capital "Victoria" is just 15min. far away, where you get anything what you need.
We would defenetly book this appartment again. Dealing with Zelda was simple and uncomplicated.
We ended up not staying in Zelda's apartment but in another one in the complex, so I can't comment on this particular apartment. Zelda was very quick in answering emails and gave us clear and detailed instructions. The Eden Island complex is a bit golf estatesque, but if that's your thing you'll really enjoy it. Either way, you'll have a very comfortable stay.
I can recommend getting paddles from the gym and kayaking over to Cerf Island. Also, Kanobo restaurant at the other end of the bridge was quite good - make a booking to ensure you get a table on the water.

About the Host, Zelda
My husband and I bought Harbour Place in 2007...we walked into the apartment while vacationing in False Bay and instantly fell in love with the ambience and breath-taking views of the ocean.
We love the fact that the building was once the old King's Hotel and that our apartment is in the exact spot that the King's Hotel Bar and Lounge used to be. We also love being part of the quaint little fishing village of Kalk Bay, a favourite with artists, writers and musicians. Many an afternoon is spent on our wooden deck, just watching the boats in the harbour and the passing parade on the village streets. A short train ride takes us all the way into Cape Town city centre or to Simon's Town in the opposite direction. We're close to the ocean and so many magnificent beaches, within walking distance of more than 15 excellent restaurants, bakeries, deli's and other eateries. To us, Harbour Place comes pretty close to heaven. We think you'll feel the same : )
