The Mahe region

Mahe is the largest island and cultural and economic hub of the Inner Islands, and the international gateway to Seychelles. It is home to the international airport and the nation’s capital, Victoria.

Mahé is the transportation hub for island-hops and day excursions to neighbouring islands and all other islands within Seychelles. All scheduled domestic flights by Air Seychelles originate from Mahé to the serviced islands.

Anse Etoile

Anse Etoile is one of the districts of Mahe; it is a very quiet and peaceful area and its nearest beach; the North East Point beach, which is ideal for snorkeling, surfing and swimming is a mere 5 minute drive from the apartment!

"Not what I expected"

I booked this rental based on the great reviews on trip advisor. We booked and paid for 3 nights but ended up staying 1 night as it was a let down. Althugh the owners were very pleasant, the location … More

Thank you for your review .... Given that we fall under the " budget holiday" on the Seychelles Tourism Website , we cannot be compared to " Eden Island" .. Our rate is only 85€ compared to theirs which is over 200/ / 300€. Mahe island is not that big and it takes only 15 mins by car to the Beau Vallon beach or town for eg ( from the apartment) and being a budget holiday apartment we provide pre-paid internet facilities compared to Wifi like small or big hotels .

"Very nice and clean Apartment"

We stayed for two weeks in the Carpe Diem Self Catering Apartment on Mahé. The apartment is located on a hill and has a nice view on the sea. It was a good starting point for our excursions on Mahé.… More

Thank you for your review ... It seems you mistakenly wrote that we live in the same house instead of on the same property:) The apartments are semi- detached and they all have their private kitchen / bathroom / balcony etc .

"Le pire des séjours dans le meilleur des mondes"

La chambre en elle-même est agréable; le problème concerne l'emplacement et l'intransigeance des propriétaires. L'accès à la maison est acrobatique, une montée abrupte que la voi… More

It's disappointing to see these inaccurate comments ( compared to those from other guests) simply because I am not licensed to accommodate 3 adults per apartment and also for Health and Safety reason sleeping on the floor is not permitted. Upon arrival the couple requested another guest stay in their apartment which had not been mentioned when booking..I explained that this was not possible and reasons ( mentioned above) for my decision. A second apartment was offered at a significantly discounted rate ( 60€ instead of 85€ per night) which was gratefully accepted.
