"Breathtakingly beautiful..."

What a perfect holiday experience! Eden Island is is situated on the turquoise blue marina, boasts gorgeous beaches, and has dramatic views of the lush mountain. The island includes all amenities and you don't need to venture far to enjoy a relaxing break from life. The apartment is beautifully decorated and includes everything you need to make you feel at home. Marilyn was extremely helpful with our booking and gave great travel tips. We loved exploring this piece of paradise and would highly recommend it to others. We will definitely be back soon...

"Lovely Views, but Less-than-Perfect Stay"

The apartment generally looks the way it is presented in the photos advertising the apartment. However, there are details in the apartment that could use improvements. For example, the bed skirt/dus… More

"A dream holiday in paradise."

I have just returned from a long anticipated dream holiday in the Seychelles and we could not have wished for more. The accommodation was perfect clean and comfortable and beautfully appointed. Marilyn had gone the extra mile in advising us on aspects such as where to eat, to swim, to find amenities etc.and even had canoes which we enjoyed greatly (and which we learnt later did not come with most apartments.) Evey aspect of our stay was perfect and we can't wait for next time!! Thank you Marilyn.

"Poor follow through"

When we booked the apartment we informed that we would land at 06.30 and was informed that the previous tenant would check out at 0730 and that we would need to allow some time for cleaning before we … More

I was really sorry that this family arrived with a small baby and the apartment was not ready at 7.30am. The normal check-in time is 2.00pm, unless there have not been previous guests staying. In this case, there were guests leaving at 10.00am. I had told them that they could leave their luggage at the apartment and go to the cluhouse pool or beach until it was ready.
I was not on the Island at the time - I live in South Africa. I leave the general running of the apartment to the V.M.A.
I was upset to hear that the drains were blocked, and when I received an e-mail from the guests, I arranged for the maintenance man to attend to it immediately, which they did. As for the couches not being clean, this was truly regrettable. The cleaners will need to be more observant - I will remind them to check on this in future. The barbeque should have been cleaned, there is no excuse for this.
We provide kayaks for the use of guests free of charge, but I am afraid they are frequently misused and straps are broken - this is unfortunate for everyone.
We try to give our guests a 5 star experience, and have certainly had wonderful reviews in the past. I do apologize to these guests for the inconvenience they encountered.

Terrible and chaotic start to our honeymoon!We booked the apartment several months in advance with Marilyn Burger, 23 Citronelle, Eden Island. We were advised that the apartment in the photos was exac… More

I really need to respond to this review - The couple had booked and paid for a one-bedroomed apartment, which would have been ready for them to check in immediately. Normally check-in is at 2.00pm, check-out at 10.00am).Guests who have to wait for the cleaning to be completed usually spend time at the pool and clubhouse. There is no need to sit in a hot car. They were shown to our two-bedroomed apartment which had other guests preparing to check-out, so it was not ready. I was on the Island, but normally leave the management of guests to the Village Management Association, until I learned of the problem. I called on the couple and explained that they were in the wrong apartment. They refused to change to the one-bedroomed apartment, so I had to book the next guests into a rental-pool apartment at my expense. At no time did I request that they pay more. I was upset by this incident, and felt that I had made it up to the couple by allowing them to stay on in the two-bedroomed apartment.I have had nothing but glowing reports about my apartment for the past 3 years and was very sorry to hear about these inaccurate acusations.
