Glacis Beach House. Fact sheet.
This beautiful house sits right on the beach in one of Glacis quiet little coves. Nestled among mature takamaka trees and fruiting palms it epitomises the true simplicity of beach style living. The cove is framed by granite outcrops reaching out into the ocean and joined together by 250 of power white sands. Perfect for swimming and snorkelling or just lazing in the sun.
The wooden house was designed and built in Bali incorporating hundreds of years of design expertise for tropical dwellings. Having been transported to the Seychelles it was erected on the Glacis beach two years ago. The wooden interiors are specially designed to keep the house cool and airy even in the most humid tropical conditions. Natural shading from the surrounding trees ensures a year round comfortable environment to enjoy this perfect beach paradise.
The house consists of kitchen with living room that has large folding double doors opening out onto a large 4 meter by 15 meter wooden veranda deck. Bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin. Hot water is supplied by an instant hot water shower. Kids room with two single beds. Lightweight chairs and tables can be easily moved in or out as most meals and relaxing times are spent on the veranda. The kitchen tops have been fashioned from local wood and in keeping with the house's simple style appliances kept to minimum consisting of microwave, toaster, two burner stove and kettle. Laundry can be arranged through one of our friendly neighbours. Internet access can be arranged through the use of local sim cards. TV and DVD player can be organised for a small extra charge.
A large master bedroom with bed side tables and reading lamps. As with the downstairs the windows fold open to let the tropical breeze circulate around the house.
The Bliss hotel incorporating the well renowned #8 restaurant is a 5 minute walk away. Slightly further along the coast road are the Sunset and Northholme hotels who welcome no residence. A ten minute drive brings you to the world famous Beauvallon beach. Car hire can be arranged at reasonable rates. The house comes with its own chater boat an 8.3meter catamaran powered by 2 x 150hp engines that can be charted at much lower rates than local operators. Scuba diving can also be arranged.

I must admit the downstairs beds where uncomfortable so I bought nice new comfortable mattreses last week and fixed the light. I must say this is the kids room for ages up to 12 and the house is best suited for couples with kids. We also have a folding cot for the younger ones. VERY happy you liked are little house Akim, you should of told me of the problem and I would of fixed things earlier, next time. best regards to all, The manager.
