This self catering detached studio is perched atop a little hill in the northern part of the main island, Mahe. Full of character and simplistic charm, it is a lovely little place to stay at whilst on your holiday. The property has a cooling fan and benefits from cool breeze blowing in. It has a small outside area with a little table and chairs near the rocks and trees so you can sit back and enjoy a glass of wine as you relax to the melodies of the tropical birdsong.
The area is within 10 minutes drive to the famous Beau Vallon Beach where you can find several tourist attractions, restaurants and watersports and approx 15 minutes drive to Victoria, the capital town centre.
Nearby within 5 - 10 minutes walk you will find a couple of small local shops for your basic grocery needs and along the coast in either direction there are some idyllic beach spots where you may very likely experience the beach just to yourselves. We can help you with your fishing and boating excursion bookings and help you with car hire arrangements, just let us know what you would like.
We can arrange your airport transfer to the apartment for 30 euros upon arrival and if you book for 7 nights or more, we offer to pick you up free of charge.

Gene and Phillip were amazing hosts!! They went above and beyond to help make our stay a comfortable one and even waited patiently at the airport for my friend after her flight was delayed by 2 hours. The studio was spotless and much more modern then I expected. The view of course is the best part, we spent almost every night enjoying wine on the balcony and looking over the beautiful teal colored water. We rented a car for two days which Gene helped arrange. The rest of the time we took the bus and didn't have a problem getting around the island from the studio. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make meals. Gene had some coconuts and straws waiting in the kitchen for us when we arrived and also gave us a bag of local banana chips to try. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful and affordable accommodation on the island.
Thank you very very much for this wonderful and perfect holiday. We really really enjoyed our time in this nice and calm apartment.
This clean and tidy accommodation with this fantastic view could not be better.
Even the location was brilliant. Our accommodation was in the northern part of this awesome island, between Beau Vallon Bay and Victoria. Good to reach by bus or car.
Gene and her husband were the best host we ever had. They were so kindly, friendly, lovely and open-minded, that we felt like home. Furthermore they are always available to answer questions and do everything to make the stay more than comfortable.
We were so sad that we had to leave and look forward to return some day. We are missing the warm atmosphere and the fresh, self grown organic fruits.
Thank you soooo much for this great time.
It was a pleasure for us.
Super séjour sur les hauteurs de Machabee. Petit déj romantique tous les matins sur la terrasse ensoleillée avec vue sur l'océan indien. Hôtes très agréables et serviables. Charmant endroit!
Das Appartement ist sehr schön gelegen, der Ausblick von der Terrasse sieht aus wie auf den Bildern. Gene und ihr Mann sind sehr freundliche und stets hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Dadurch dass sie in direkter Nachbarschaft wohnen, stehen sie stets als Ansprechpartner zur Verfügung.
Das Appartement hat eine gute Größe für zwei Personen, die Küche enthält alles notwendige und lädt auch zum selber kochen ein.
Ein Parkplatz für das unserer Meinung nach notwendige Mietauto stand zur Verfügung.
Wir würden das Appartement jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
Great experience staying in Gene's beautiful studio. Gene was there to greet us on arrival and gave a thorough tour of the space. Prior to arriving, Gene sent us tips for the restaurants, activities and even helped reserve a rental car. We were provided some simple breakfast foods for out first morning, which was a lovely unexpected touch. The description and photos of the studio are completely accurate. I think it's perfect for two people as a sweet, secluded getaway spot. Beaches and a rock pool are walking distance. It is a bit further to restaurants and shopping, but driving on the island is easy and there is a cheap bus option that stops just below the house on the main road. Wonderful views and overall great service. If we come back to the Seychelles, we would definitely stay here again.
Excellent experience, from the airport to the wonderful stay and location. A place to visit for sure!
It was a vacation I and my friends were looking forward to for the longest time and we had been planning for quite some time for it - it just had to be perfect. While searching for the place to stay, we fell in love with the pics uploaded on the profile, but were a little apprehensive about the real thing - could it really be that beautiful - but it WAS... absolutely stunning!! Unfortunately, we could not meet Gene, but we did meet Philip who was an absolute amazing host - cheerful, friendly and always there whenever we needed him - with the spare keys in hand when we got locked out or waiting just outside the home with umbrellas for us so that we dont get drenched!! The apartment itself was very beautiful - small cozy place to stay - so amazing that we actually did not leave the home the first day we were here... the balcony was our haven which had the perfect view of the ocean and we were indeed fortunate enough to see the amazing moon rise... not to mention that the stunning sunrise and sunset spots were just a few minutes drive from the home so we did not miss either :)
It was an incredible vacation. All our requirements - airport transfer and car rental and wifi were made available to us as per our needs without any botheration! Gene and Philip are amazing hosts - would love to come back again and would love even more to have you as our guests when you come to India.
Thanks for making our vacation truly special - it could not have been made possible without you guys... God Bless you.... till we meet again :)

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!
