The Drake Seaside Apartment is a self catering two bedroom holiday accommodation, in Seychelles, located in Belombre, on the main island of Mahe. It is well situated close to the seaside, and the main road. It was completed in May 2013 and has modern facilities. It is located on the 1st floor of the owner's house with its own access. The property is fenced, complete with electric gate to facilitate movement in and out. It has an open plan kitchen/sitting room and a large balcony facing the sea.

The Drake is a family run business and we are close by to help our guests. Guests will enjoy a peaceful environment coupled with the soft sound of the waves. The apartment is good value for family and group travel (4 adults max).

There are 2 bedrooms available, both with air-condition and double beds, sharing a bathroom, kitchen facilities and living space. 2nd room is rented out to the same party (families or groups). Guests have the option of renting out 1 bedroom only.

We provide a starter pack for breakfast on the 1st day of stay. Otherwise the apartment has a fully equipped kitchen.

Being close to the main road our guests can have easy access to local bus services. We also have a staircase leading from our garden down to the beach - great for kids and snorkeling enthusiast. Closest shop is a minute away.

"Great apartment in fantastic location"

We spent 2 weeks on honeymoon here - and think we struck gold! A beautiful, spotless apartment with everything you could wish for, in a fantastic location right next to the sea. Snorkelling was amazing - some of the best fish we saw were right here, including turtles and rays. Danielle and Spencer were the perfect hosts; they gave us plenty of privacy, but were only too happy to help with advice when we asked, and always with a smile! Convenient for the bus stop, and the Meridien with its bars and restaurants is just 2 minutes' walk away. In a word - perfect!

"Great apartment with great view"

The apartment is well equipped, it contains everything is needed. The view from the balcony is extraordinary. The breakfast is not included, but a really good "starter pack" is provided for the first day (juice, bread, jam, butter, milk, eggs, water, ...) Bus stop is a 1 minute walk, mini market is a 5 minute walk, the Beau Vallon beach is a 10 minute walk (this beach is really nice, with soft sand and superb view). Danielle and his husband have been always helpful and gave us a really warm welcome. Actually, the full family gave us an incredible welcome! We had a really appreciated stay!

"Wonderful Place to feel at Home"

The Drake Seaside apartment is located directly at the sea and allows to go swimming and snorkeling just in front of the door. Corals and sealife are really beautiful, we even discovered a sea turtle and many colourful fish.

Victoria and Beau Vallon is a few minutes close by car, bus stop is nearby. It's a good starting point for visits to beach and city, excursions on nature trails and mountains.

The interior of the apartment is modern, well equiped and maintained and makes you feel at home from the very first moment. View from the large balcony is extraordinary, also beautiful to observe starlight at night.

The owner family gave us a warm welcome, breakfast in the fridge to get started on the first day, internet access to plan activities and all kind of recommendations for a confortable stay. Some tropical fruit as a present during our visit and a nice chat on the stairs but always respecting privacy of their guests. Very convenient is the cleaning service every two days.

We felt very much as guests and were treated so nicely! On departure day with a late night flight, we were allowed to leave luggage at the family and to come back for a shower so we could perfectly benefit from the last day of our vacation.

We would like very much to come back and hope to visit Mahe again in the future.
