Guest access

Interaction with guests

We both live in Europe and unfortunately don't meet most of our guests. But our managers will greet the guests upon arrival and will be more than happy to assist in anything they might need.

Other things to note

1. Transfer service from port or airport to the Villa can be organised by your hosts at a cost of 150 SCR per person, each way including children under 12 years old.

2. Complimentary daily cleaning of common areas. Linen and towels are changed twice a week and personal clothes are guests responsibility

3. Complimentary daily dinner preparation of creole cuisine by the Villa hosts 

3.1 Food cost is at guest expense. Please note that in our experience, to comfortably eat and drink well, the daily food and beverage budget is around 20 euros per person per day (not including seafood).

3.2 You may make allowance upon arrival for the food purchase. Your hosts will offer a menu plan and will go shopping once during your stay.

3.3 If you wish to try the creole barbecue and seafood, please advise your hosts within at least one day in advance so they will have enough time to source for fresh produce around the island.

3.4 Please note the meal preparation service does NOT include table clearing after dinner

4. Complimentary Internet Broadband Internet up to limit of 1GB. Above 1GB is at guests cost. Please note that due to Seychelles far reaching location in the world, the wifi speed is quite slow and not ideal for web browsing.

The villa is a fantastic spot! It's charming with a personal style and is comfortable. Very clean, good beds, nice rain shower and a good kitchen. Bettina is welcoming and very friendly. Every day she cleaned the house. Unfortunately, the little pool was not to use since 2 weeks when we arrived. Bettina apollogized but there were technical problems and problems with technicans. Finally, the day we leftwas fixed!

We had a wondeful stay at the Villa Paille en Queue. The place is idyllic, surrounded by nature, just gorgeous! We loved Bettina's cooking, what a treat to have home made creole dinners cooked every night. We also had a fantastic day out on Liroy's boat. Both of them are truly caring and so helpful. They made sure we had a great time and we thank them very much!

It was just great at Arethas place. It's one of the two best rental houses ever (and I've seen quite some during the last years). Bettina is a great manager and an even better cook. Her dinners were delicious...She does everything to keep the guests happy. Contact with Aretha was uncomplicated, straightforward and nice. The house is in real even prettier than on the pictures, even if it's almost not possible. You though need a car to get around. In case we will come back to the Seychelles, we would be more than happy to stay there again. Thank you, Aretha and Jonathan, thank you Bettina and Leroy. It was a lovely short week on Praslin...and a great part of our Seychelles holiday.

We had a great stay at villa paille en queue! The house is exactly as described and comfortably accommodated our group of 7 adults. The property is very private and sheltered from traffic and noise. The property owners (Aretha & Jonathon) were excellent communicators, providing useful information up front then answering our questions thoroughly and promptly. For example, providing information on hire cars and organising transport for our arrival. Even assisting us with our enquiries for a local florist (as we married on La Digue during our stay). The villa hosts Bettina and Liroy were amazing. Bettina looked after our group so well and nothing was ever a problem or too hard. Liroy not only supports Bettina around the property, but also provided us with transport and adventure boat charters (glass bottom boat tours, snorkelling and fishing trips). He has 2 beautiful charter boats (walking distance from the villa), one of which is the only glass bottom boat on Praslin. Bettina and Liroy also organised an amazing multi course creole bbq feast for the evening of our wedding. We highly recommend this secluded villa for a great stay on Praslin.

Had a wonderful time, the villa is stunning and comfortable. Bettina and Leroy were so kind and helpful and keep the place very well. Leroy cooked a bbq for us which was delicious. Isle de Palm opposite has amazing food and is also a great place to spend the day by the pool and enjoy the scenery, otherwise it was lovely to be in such a peaceful location. The pool at the villa is great too and all the lounging areas. Truly a magical experience.

The Villa, the garden, the service, Bettina's cooking, the surroundings all were even beyond alread high expectations. If one wants to experience the true Praslin in all comfort and in a truly individualistic fashion - this is the place. One tip: it's really worth to rent a car. Not expensive and was all seemlessly coordinated by our hosts. We really want to come again - good thing there'll soon also be a direct flight from Vienna!

Pros: 1. Huge villa with plenty of amenities (private mini pool, bar, barbeque, kitchen, verandah), private parking and clean environment. 2. Hosts provided plenty of information pre-trip and was pretty responsive; arrival pick up was also helpful as the house is not easy to locate! 3. George and Stella are able to organise car rental for you if required (we didn't use this service) and are also there to cook every night as long as you let them know the night before. NB: If you wish to get your own fresh food on the day as we did, it may not leave George and Stella enough time for the cooking. Can be improved: 1. Shampoo, shower gel and conditioner were not provided and could be quite nice so guests won't have to visit the supermarket separately for that on arrival (especially if they arrive late) 2. Kitchen is lacking some basics like oil and sugar although pots, pans, cutlery, salt etc were plenty. 3. The villa is tidied and beds are made on a daily basis but any undone dishwashing is left to the guests. There is a dishwasher available but we were told not to use it unless we have enough dishes to fill the dishwasher, which may mean dirty dishes for a day or two before the dishwasher can be run. 4. Sometimes (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) responses from George and Stella can be quite delayed. We could contact them directly as they live next door but sometimes when we are not in the villa, it would've been helpful for a prompt response on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) as calls can be quite expensive. 5. Wi-fi is very weak and unstable to the point you have to stand right next to the router to get any reception. Whilst wi-fi and mobile reception on the island is in general quite limited, we have also received stronger wifi signals at other outlets on the island.

My life evolves around traveling the world over and so get the great opportunities of meeting people of varying cultures. As a result of this, my villa in the Seychelles is a culmination of the years of traveling and this can be seen by the style of decor.

Having a hectic and stressful life decidedly made me build a house that is peaceful throughout and being surrounded by the tropical forest with birds singing away is the best getaway I have and something which I wish to share to others.
