“the biggest house on island”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

hi there! we just returned back from the most beautiful island of Seychelles, La Digue. we researched the island by bicycles and found out that this house is the biggest on island. we travelled with our daughter 6 y.o. for children there are seesaws and plastic chute next to the house. the furniture in rooms is a little bit old but looked nice. the yard itself is not very big but there is enough place to play budminton on grass. the house has three bedrooms, two on the second floor, were convenient for us because of daughter. i would say the stairs are steep a little. the pool is enough to swimm. i d like the pool to be kept more carefully. the house maid does not have enough time to keep the house and cook at the same time. by the way, we agreed with Minta about cooking for us. the price is defined on place depending on which dishes and how many portions are preferred. we were in July so there was not a season for fruits. the grocery is expensive because everything is delivered from main island. two steps from the house you can find the bicycle rent and small shop next door, but there is not big variaty of food. the meat or fish are sold in the shops of La Passe or at the market on saturday. we caught the fish by trolling it, 1 ten kilos of dorado and 1 ten killos of kingfish as a result. the house maid was cooking them during two weeks of our stay). the villa is situated next to the hotel and every night the policeman was on duty. there are several taxi cars but bicycles seemed more romantic although every one is very old. there are only three main routs on the island. the map you can get at the hotel reception next door.

“Wonderful House with amazing caretaker”

This house was great, very good location, very clean and very safe. Right next to la Digue island lodge if you want to pop in for a cocktail or meal. Close to everything.
Minta ( caretaker during the day) went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. recommended meals, trips and is an amazing person.
Fully air-conditioned where needed and everything works. We had a party of 7 and had space to spare. Well equipped kayaks, weber, DSTV etc etc. Very comfortable.

“Stunning location”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This is a wonderful spot for a family vacation. We hired bikes and the kids aged 7,9, cycled around the corner to the local deli to get fresh croissants every morning. They just loved the freedom. The house is huge. The pool is great, and a climb over the wall in front of the pool drops you down to the beach. Very shallow and safe for wading. Kids enjoyed snorkelling. No currents. Will def go back!
