This studio apartment is located in the north of the main island Mahe and benefits from a separate bedroom area which leads out onto a fantastic large balcony that faces the sea.

The apartment has got a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with shower and bathtub, a double bedroom with an extra double sofa bed and has plenty of built in cupboards for storage.

The balcony overlooks the garden of our ground floor apartment and has a view of the ocean and the tropical trees along on the coast. There are a couple of armchairs on the balcony perfect for reading a good book and you can also dine on the balcony where there is a little dining table and some chairs.

There a ceiling fan as well as air - condition in the bedroom and the sofa bed can accommodate 1 or 2 extra people.

This apartment is a very convenient place to be based for your holiday as we are 7 minutes drive to the popular Beau Vallon area and 15 minutes from Victoria town. There are a couple of bus stops conveniently located within a couple of minutes walk away that have a good service from 6 am until 8.30pm everyday.

If you enjoy being near the ocean, this little apartment offers you a comfortable place to stay only a couple of minutes walk away from a beautiful spot where you can appreciate the beauty of the Indian Ocean waters.

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! :)

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting Around

There are bus stops conveniently located within 2 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.
