Another great time in the Seychelles and another great visit with the fantastic Confait/ Schneider family.

this time i came back as a friend and had the opportunity to see what it takes to run a guest house behind the scenes.

while all the guest come to have a great time there is a lot going on behind the scenes that the guest do not know about.

first off they deal with multiple websites ie..booking.com, Agoda, Expedia and seyvillas as well as many returning guest dealing directly with them.

when a booking comes in on one site they have to login to all the others, one at a time and block the chalets from being booked by the others. then they write it down on a chart.

all set chalet is booked...not so fast as many people book and cancel a day later, inc one who booked and cancelled 5x in a few days. each time that happens they have to login to,the other sites and free up,the chalets for rebooking by someone else. then erase the charts. this can take a few hours a day 7 days a week.

you need to,try very hard to keep it all straight.

the Maid comes each morning and starts cleaning the property M-sat and each chalet is given a good cleaning.

on Sunday the maid has the day off so the owners, Karl and his lovely wife Chantal do all the cleaning and to call them fussy is an understatement. they are very thorough and the place is always nice and clean.

the Chalets are beautiful and if you remember the tv show..HOME IMPROVEMENT with Tim Allen as Tim "the tool man Taylor" you will recognize Karl as being Tim taylor.

Karl always has a project going on and while most of us, me inc, would just go do it and be done with it Karl.."Tim" makes a big project out if a small idea...however there is a reason behind this.

you see Karl and Chantal.cannot do anything halfway when it comes to their guest. Karl is building an outdoor BBQ, something that can be done in a couple of days..however For Karl it will take weeks.

first he had to get a compass out to figure which way winds come from so smoke blows away frommguest, then measure and dig a hole then breakup something else and put thevrubble in the hole for a good solid base, then pour cement and build the Taj Mahal of grills and he wants to put up moveable panels to block the wind from blowing smoke back at the guest.

no one else will go to so much trouble for a guest.

to say they care about their guest experience is a giant understatement. they are constantly finding ways to improve your stay and yet not to raise rates but because they enjoy having you there and honestly care about you .

i say this as a friend and some may think my opinion is biased but if the place was a dump i would still have to say so as this has to be a truthful review or i cannot write it.

this is a family oriented place and many people book year after year and become good friends.

you will not find a better family with whom to stay anywhere.

The room that we got was very spacious with a kitchen that had everything you'd need for self catering. Our host was very helpful in providing us with how to get around and provide local attractions information. The property backed onto a beach (although the time of the year we went had seaweed on top of the sand, but it was still fun to hang out there with my kids. The enjoyed ripping the leaves off!

We stayed 3 nights at Amitie Chalets, once we had gotten our bearings we hired a car and set off to explore the Island, Amitie Chalets is a great base to be, the room we had was great, we stayed in the family unit that can accommodate up to 6 or 8 people, we did self catering and the kitchen had everything we needed, the owners were very helpful with general info and where to do shopping etc, Amitie also has a good view of the Ocean and Grand Anse Beach. Amitie Chalets is close to Banks and supermarkets so getting everything we needed was very easy, we really enjoyed our time at Amitie.

We stayed at the Amitie Chalets for 10 nights and we couldn't have picked a better accommodation for our vacation. The bungalows are nice, clean and right by the water. Carl and his wife were very anxious to make our stay as pleasant as possible! If we were to come back to the Seychelles, we would stay here again at any time!!

We arrived at night in the middle of a real Tropical downpour to find a friendly welcome from Karl and Chantelle and a complimentary supply of basic food and beverages in our self-catering kitchen. The location is excellent, being just 500 metres from Praslin airport and with its own access on to Grande Anse beach. We are happy to recommend Amitie Chalets.
