Your 5 minutes to the beach. Buy your fish and fruit right from the locals on the beach shore. Brief guided tour from Viraf himself when you first arrive. Transportation to and from the airport at a very reasonable price, and car rentals for the cheapest price on the island. Any one of Viraf's properties is a great find with the cheapest rates, by far (it's almost crazy, but don't tell him that lol!). He allows people who aren't rich, to really stretch their dollars and see everything - and possibly even more - then the hotels/all inclusives. Not to mention the room size. This apartment is cute for a single or couple, while all the other suites are HUGE - like apartment huge.

My boyfriend and I travelled to the Seychelles for the first time in Jan to stay for two months. We had to prepare everything online, as we are from Canada. We didn't know much, so finding a place can be a little intimidating, especially with the risk of fraud. I can assure you, though, that this was the best decision we ever made.

Viraf and his family are the most accomodating people I have ever met. Absolutely anything we needed, they provided. Being there was like being a part of the family. His crew greet you every morning with a wonderful smile, and are always willing to offer advice on where to go and where to eat. Viraf's wife was even compassionate enough to allow Viraf to spend some time with us chatting over rum a couple of nights, and sending him on his way later in the night :) Jacqueline, who is at Viraf's other location, is also a woman worth spending time with. (Hi Jacqueline!)

We were there for my birthday, and the ladies helped maintain the bowl of flowers my boyfriend had created for the rest of our stay. It was a great touch, it made us feel like valuable customers.

I can honestly go on and on about this place. I spent two months, with breaks in between to visit other islands - Curieuse, Praslin, and La Digue. Out of all the places we stayed anywhere, this was by far the best in every single way. You won't regret it. You'd be crazy to stay somewhere else.

(Hi Viraf, hope all is well with you and your family - see you when we return! Kyle & Chantel)

PS If Viraf asks you any favours on your arrival from Duty Free, I suggest you do it. We regretted that we didn't. You'll want to do anything for this man after the effort he puts in for you.

“Excellent host - Great appartment”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Mr. Viraf picked us up at the airport and drove us around Beau Vallon, gave some explanation about ATM's, shops, take aways and good restaurants and finally drove us to our two bedroom apartment. Everything was perfectly clean. His two bedroom apartment (Palamont studios) is about 450m from Beau Vallon beach, it is easy to go there by foot. At night it can get rather dark so bring a light with you. I liked Viraf's personal touch - he directed us also to his stepfather Pierre, who gave us great information about trail walks up to the Morné Blanc. The rental car we got from Viraf was a nice little car but it had no insurance, if you wreck it, you pay.

Liked best: Mr. Viraf's attention and customer service
Liked least: Viraf's stepfather arranged a car for us on Praslin for 40 Euro per day, when we got there the price was raised to 50 Euro per day without option to negotiate, it was either that or no car.
