"Our place in Seychelles:)"
Very nice house, located on local creol area, so U are not with other tourist, just with the people from the Island, which are really nice, and helpfull.
The price i so cheap so we decided to take a car for all stay, Judy(owner) help us with it, so we had a house and car for very good price (spending time on Seychelles is not good idea-its good to have one just for few days)
The place where we stay has really good connection, to all the best beaches on Mahe, we stayed 2 weeks, and are pretty sure, that, if some day we decide to come back to Seychelles, we gonna choose Ligthouse65 again!

"Great hospitality, fantastic island"
Easy to book, great communication.
Collected us from airport, house as described, (not a 5* hotel but a small selfcatering property in a residential area). great for mixing in with the locals, 5 min walk to beach, bus etc. The neighbors even dropped us in some coconuts to drink.
Property fairly dated with basic facilities but clean and tidy.
Judy the owner was really kind and took us to the shops to stock up on groceries and offered to take us around the island at the weekend.
Also, Judy provided a local sim card so we could easily contact her for lifts etc.
