Gene was most helpful already before we arrived with lots of detailed information and all imaginable aspects covered.
The flat was lovely, spacious, well-kept and lovingly decorated. It was touching how Gene welcomed us and had some groceries already there for us.
A great place to stay!
We had a wonderful time staying at Gene and Philip's place!!! They were very informative and helpful with all of the planning before we even got there, including helping us rent a car (which was waiting for us at the airport) and providing us with Wifi in the apartment. When we arrived we were extremely happy with the fully furnished apartment (a fully stocked kitchen, including some food and drinks which was great since we didn't have time to go shopping when we arrived, and delicious coconut's :) :) ). The apartment is also very spacious, comfortable, private, and is super close to an amazing rock pool just across the street. We really enjoyed the location of the apartment, as everything on the island is not too far with a car - and yes, we definitely recommend on renting a car when in Mahe. We liked that we were not in the middle of a busy neighborhood, and with a car we managed to get everywhere on the island very easily and comfortably.
Gene and Philip were also always available, very helpful, and kind whenever we contacted them, and they even provided us with snorkeling gear :)
All in all we had an amazing time in this great apartment, so thank you very very very much to our gracious hosts!!!
We had a great stay at Gene's apartment and would highly recommend it to everybody who wants to enjoy and explore the Seychelles islands apart from the 5-star-luxury hotels.
Gene and Philipp were the most kind and friendly hosts that I could imagine. They live nearby so they are always there for you in case of any questions or issues.
Bus station in front of the house –although a rental car is of need to explore also the other parts of the island in a convenient way– and also a little grocery shop is close to the apartment.
Thanks again, Gene. We hope to meet you again sometime!
Es hat uns sehr gut bei Gene gefallen. Wir sind sehr freundlich aufgenommen worden. Der Kühlschrank war bei unserer Ankunft mit Wasser, Eiern und Butter etc. befüllt, um die Zeit bis zum ersten Einkauf zu überbrücken. Gene und ihr Mann standen uns bei Fragen immer zur Verfügung. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.
Die Gastgeber waren sehr sympathisch und haben uns während des Aufenthaltes mit wertvollen Tipps unterstützt. Die Wohnung war sauber und hat uns sehr gut gefallen.
The apartment was very nice, clean and had all the amenities needed. We were welcomed by Philip and given many details related to our stay by email before arrival. Genes friend arranged internet (at an additional cost) and offered to help with car rental. She also provided information on various island tours. Overall the stay was pleasant. Bus stops are located very near to the apartment but a car is advisable for getting around.
Wir hatten einen leider zu kurzen, aber sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt in der Wohnung. Sehr gemütlich, Lage ist gut (zwischen Beau Vallon und Victoria)...die Unterkunft bietet alles, was man braucht. Und um alles Weitere kümmert sich Gene :) Super nette Gastgeberin, die uns sehr freundlich empfangen hat und gerne bei allen weiteren Belangen unterstützt und hilft.
Bei meinem nächsten Besuch auf den Seychellen würde ich auf jeden Fall wieder hier buchen.

About the Host, Gene
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!
