  • Le lieu est très beau, la mer en face la route, Gene et son mari sont très adorables.
    Je conseille à 100%

  • The apartment has a really nice atmosphere and we enjoyed the spacious terrace and garden with ocean view a lot!
    Thank you Gene and Philip for being such wonderful hosts! We hope to be back soon!

  • Gene is such a nice host. Online there is not much of tourist info to find about the Seychelles, but Gene has all the information for you! She booked us a car that was really good and also affordable and she was so helpfull.
    We only stayed for 1,5 days, but if we come back we would stay here again. Only good to know is that the wifi didnt always work perfectly and in the top apartment it only works outside on the corner of the balcony, but thats a small detail!

  • My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Gene's apartment at Mahé island. She and her husband was wonderful hostess. Gene was very helpful with all form answering questions we had before our vacation, help us rent a car, give us tips on what to do, and the fact that they picked us up at the airport upon our arrival was very plesant after a 24 hours journey.

    The location of the apartment was great with the ocean just a couple meters away, and relatively close to the beach beau vallon.

    An apertment feels like you come closer to the real island than if we would have stayed in a hotel.

    We would recommend Gene to everyone going to the Seychelles.

  • Excellent! The place is well located and Gene was very helpful in the preparation of the trip and once in Mahe, with all the information needed.
    The apartment is well equiped, clean and ideal for families.
    It's in the north of the island, wich is a very good option for visiting Beau Vallon and surroundings.
    We combined the stay here with 3 days in the south.

  • Gene is a hospitable host, ready to help with random issues that may arise (like lost luggage) and offer practical advice to help make the most of your stay. The studio has a well-equipped kitchen, AC and a fan, good wifi, and makes for a very comfortable home away from home. Not a place to stay if you want to be walking distance to restaurants or a sandy beach, but the rocky outlook and natural pool across the street are great in their own respect and the rest is a bus or car ride away!

    December 2013
  • We had a wonderful time in Gene's flat!
    A warm welcome and some help in planning our trip made this an unforgettable week in "paradise on earth".
    We recommend this studio to everyone who wants to visit the Seychelles on a budget.

    September 2013
  • The studio is very complete, kitchen well equiped, excellent matress and two kind of pillows that offer a very confortable resting. No noises bothering our sleep, even if the studio is by the main (website hidden) bugs or mosquitoes. Good quality and silent fan. We appreciated the ride given from the airport and the breakfast kit prepared for us as well as the rented car delivered to the apartment's door.
    The hints given by Gene before arrival were very useful, such as the prepaid airtel sim card offered in the airport with the Seygo magazine.

I'm an easy going mother of 4 with endless patience and the truth is I just love to make people happy as it makes me happy, I'm the eternal feel good type, seeking the positive out of adversity - I guess it takes from the survival mechanism to keep on going no matter what with a smile on my face. I define myself by the little things in life which offers me a sense of appreciation for being alive in this mind boggling journey of what it is to exist. I Love: kindness / I Hate: Being fooled . I'm an avid reader and any enjoy being transported to another world through the limitless potential of a good story which I find innocently allows me to live vicariously through others imagination. Now retired, I was a horticulturalist by trade and organic farmer at heart and can still find most solutions to my problems by getting my hands dirty in soil and taking great pleasure in nurturing my plants. My bad points: I do not eat to live but rather live to (email hidden)eese and I are a match made in heaven though my hips would disagree and I just love cooking. My motto: You never know what is around the corner, so enjoy it while you can and never leave happy till later, do it now!
