About this listing
The studio is absolutely ideal for a fantastic experience on our paradise island! A wonderful little hideaway perched atop a little hill in a peaceful & calm setting with breathtaking views of the ocean. Perfect for honeymooners & travellers! :)
This self-catering detached studio is perched atop a little hill in the northern part of the main island in Machabée, Mahe. Full of character and simplistic island charm, it is a lovely little place to stay at whilst on your holiday. The property has A/C plus a cooling fan and also benefits from the natural cool breeze blowing in. There is a wonderful balcony overlooking the ocean view and there is another small exterior area with a little table and a couple of 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.
Please note that the apartment is not suitable for children between 1 - 5 years old. We do not mind parents with babies who are not of walking age that are being supervised or kids of 6 years old and above since there are many steps leading up to the apartment and we personally prefer to not have the worry about the safety of little children smaller than this given the altitude of the studio.
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 500 Rupees upon arrival.
Guests have the entire place just to themselves with private access to everything in the apartment.
Interaction with guests
We live nearby and are always happy to help with advice or anything that you need, you can just pop down to our place. We will always be here to welcome you and show you to your apartment when you arrive and give you a little tour of everything. Interaction is based on a per guest basis, if you want to be left alone to enjoy your holiday, we respect that and if you want to get to know us more, we welcome that as well - it's really whatever makes you happy, we just access the apartment every 4 days to clean it and change the linen! :)
Great part of the island in a peaceful and calm area yet close enough to the busier Beau Vallon and Victoria within 10 - 15 minutes drive. Right next to the north coast of the island where there are some of the best snorkelling spots on Mahe along the way from Machabee to Beau Vallon.
There are bus stops conveniently located within 3 minutes walk from the apartment. The bus service starts daily around 5.30 AM and finishes by 7.30 - 8.00 PM everyday which busses typically passing every 30 minutes. It is advisable to get a rental car no matter where you are staying ion Mahe as it is the most convenient way of discovering the island at your own pace.

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 eat, cheese 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!
