Gerry and his wife Chainat made us so welcome and I can only repeat previous reviewer’s comments - you really feel like you’re staying with friends. We enjoyed barbecues, a boat trip and even a children’s birthday party with them. The villa is clean, spacious and airy with a great view from the first floor balcony. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the beach, but slightly longer to climb up the steep but thankfully short hill on the way back.
Security is excellent as the owner’s house is next to the villa, within the same gated area.
Having stayed at hotels for our two previous visits to the Seychelles, we wanted a bit more independence and knew that Beau Vallon was the ideal base. It has the best beach for swimming and if you want good snorkelling, then Sunset Beach is only a short bus ride along the coast. The buses are also a quick and easy way to get to Victoria, so we only needed to hire a car for a couple of days to explore the rest of Mahe.
Seychelles restaurants can be expensive, so we often ate from the street stalls at Beau Vallon and enjoyed excellent local dishes while sat on the beach. The Boat House buffet was the best local eatery we found and we also had an excellent meal at the Spice Garden restaurant.

“Great place”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed at Sunglow with my family for a few days in August and had a great time there. Gerry and his wife are very thoughtful and courteous and were always willing to help out with anything. The house itself is big and spacious and situated about a 10-15 minute walk from the beach. Gerry even took us out for a ride on his van for a mini tour of the town which we loved!
The fridge was stocked with essentials when we arrived and all the amenities were in good condition. The only thing that detracted from the wonderful stay was the extremely slow wifi connection (when upstairs I couldn't get a signal at all). Also, there isn't much of an ocean view from the house which we missed out on as we like to hear and see the ocean when sitting at home when we're away on a holiday like this. But apart from this, my family and I had a really wonderful time. Thank you for the hospitality shown and best of luck with everything!
