“A Great Stay!”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in both apartments whilst we were here - the bigger ground floor one for 1st night and then we moved up to the top studio for a further 7 nights - both of them were lovely, really clean, well equipt, modern and comfy - i think i preferred the top apartment though just because it was a good size for us and the terrace was absolutely gorgeous - could sit and watch the lizards, fruit bats and sunsets in the evening - lovely!
Doris and Mick are really kind hosts - on our first night we came a bit of a cropper in the dark and my boyfriend hurt his leg and we ended up getting totally lost and they came and collected us! We were also invited to Mick's birthday BBQ which was lovely and we were made to feel really welcome. Rudy who looks after the apartments and grounds also did a great job - kept everything really clean and tidy and was always working! All in all i highly recommend this apartment - the only thing is if someone is not too fit or have any mobility issues i think you would definitely need a car - we walked up the hill probably about 10 times during our stay and it didn't get any easier - it was sooooo steep and long too! There were also quite a few dogs roaming about at night barking at us which was a tad disconcerting! I would recommend even hiring a car for a couple of days as we did as it is pretty cheap - only about 30 euros a day. A fab stay - thanks Doris, Mick and Rudy!

We stayed in Silhouette, the top apartment, for the 4 nights.

Pros:
Doris & Mike - the owners, beautiful & helpful people
All the facilities in the kitchen - good quality
Clean apartment & quiet
Daily cleaning
AC Panasonic and fan
Breakfast in the first morning - omelet, sausage, Banana bread cake baked by Doris, butter, gem. One box 1L with tropical juice and one box 1L with milk, in the fridge, courtesy from the house.
TV lcd with many programs
Good double bed
Big and nice terrace with beautiful panoramic view
Nice dinner in the last evening - tuna fish cooked in the oven with vegetable sauce on the top, served with rice and pumpkin salad
Parking place in the yard
Small nice pool - never used

Cons:
Nothing relevant for us - no safe box in the room

The location is quite high on the hillside. We rented a car for visiting the island for 4 days. Remember the narrow streets, in the night all the cats are black :-)

Final words:
highly recommended !

Thx Doris and Mick for the wonderful stay !

“Wonderful Holiday in superb apartment”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just returned from Beau Vallon and can fully recommend D & M apartments. The owners Doris and Mick are really delightful and will do everything they can to ensure that guests have a trouble free holiday. Our apartment was very comfortable and had everything we could possibly need. In addition it was spotlessly clean and maintained in that condition by Roddy every day. The location is quite high on the hillside and we would recommend the use of a hire car. The views are really marvellous. We had no problem driving around the island and readers should not be put off reading of sharp drops off mountain roads. They are there but the traffic proceeds at quite a slow pace and we were more concerned at the driving back in the Uk after 3 weeks in Mahe!! The beach at B Vallon is perfect for swimming/sunbathing with good snorkelling at either end of the bay.We found the Seychellois people friendly and helpful, despite visiting all parts of the island, at no stage did we feel in any way unsafe. We had enjoyable meals at the Botanic restaurant on the left midway between Beau V and Victoria and the cafe at the George Camille Gallery on the left shortly before you enter Victoria from B.V. A European style supermarket can be found at the Eden Island Development with underground parking on the airport road but we were also happy with the local supermarkets in BV. Finally I must pay tribute to the wonderful Banana bread cake baked by Doris, she is a star baker !!!!

“Very clean apartment with lovely hosts”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014
4
people found this review helpful

The two holiday apartments are built on the grounds of the family house so the hosts are always nearby and always ready to help with any queries. Doris and Mick are very helpful and really tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The apartments are located only 10 minutes walk from Beau Vallon beach; getting there is easy as it´s downhill all the way. Getting back up is more difficult, but Doris and Mick are always available for a lift in case you don´t have a rental car. The views from the terrace are stunning and the family swimming pool is open for the guests to use at any time. Rudi, who looks after the garden and the apartments, is also very helpful and keeps everything very clean. If you are looking for a freindly place to stay where you are made to feel like one of the family and can get to know local life, then this is the right place for you!

“Beautiful, secluded location, lovely modern apartment”

We were a little worried by the apartment being up a hill but chose it anyway. The walk was a little hot (everything was a little hot!) but we were really happy with our choice. Doris and Mick and their family were all really friendly and helpful - they took us to the supermarket to get shopping and even offered to pick us up after dinner by the beach though we enjoyed the walk so didn't take them up on that - at a slow walk you could be back up the hill in 15 minutes. We stayed in Silhouette, the top apartment. The views across the valley were lovely, both sunny and stormy, you could sit and watch the birds and fruitbats flying across and watch the light changing on the hillsides, sometimes, the rain passing over the mountains. I loved the jungly smells and sounds and the privacy we had here. The interior was a good size, spotlessly clean and with lovely modern furnishings. There was air con and a ceiling fan and the windows were tinted which helped keep things cooler. The only things to be aware of are that the mattress on the bed was very firm and since it's in the same room you could hear the fridge from in bed. Neither bothered us. The shower wasn't always hot in the evening but as we were so hot we didn't mind at all - we could probably have asked and had this sorted out if we'd wanted. There was no safe but there was a big, lockable drawer in the wardrobe and since the apartment is in a gated compound with the family on site and lockable windows and doors I think it was very secure. The sunloungers on the balcony were so comfy it was hard to get out of them once you lay down and having a sunny area and rack to dry clothes but also a shaded area to shelter from the sun and rain was perfect. The pool was kept pristine and very welcoming with a nice seating area beside it and sea/sunset views. There is a big hotel being built and quite a bit of traffic near the beach, up on the hill was a nicer vibe with local's houses. Beau vallon beach is lovely though, and there are some good restaurants there. We hired a car for some of our time so were able to explore the whole island and get out really early for some great mountain walks. Our favourite beach on Mahe was at the Sunset Beach Hotel up the road and our favourite walk was from the Tea Factory to Morne Blanc. I would definitely want to stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to return to Mahe!
