At the Villas we have available a number of water sport facilities such as:
We are also located close to Beau Vallon beach where there are some diving and watersports centers.
Amazing choice for anyone looking for a bit of cozy unique “living like a local” luxury, this is an incredible romantic oceanfront bungalow. I congratulated our host for his vision and will to make it construct it in recent years. Upon arrival, the bungalow immediately exceeded my expectations for the extensive calm private space it offered both outside on its terrace/patio and efficient use of space inside with areas of small kitchen, dining area with stunning sea view, living room area with stunning sea view and the bed behind it. The 1-Bed Bungalow: Our studio simplex bungalow was perched several meters above the crystal waters of the ocean and nestled among the stunning granite boulders for which the Seychelles are known. A wide wooden terrace, with big comfortable day-bed and patio-chairs, with sweeping view south across the long arc of the central beachside town of Beau Vallon and Bel Omre with the dramatic island mountains rising above. The air conditioning unit above bed was suitable and sufficient, though note that the many glass doors that wonderfully surround the living/dining areas (providing uninterrupted views of the sea!) are not air tight like a hotel room, but again the air conditioning was sufficient and good.
Did I mention there is free use of 2 sea kayaks and snorkeling equipment?! And a nearly private local cove beach directly outside with stunning clear water and amazing snorkeling with beautiful fish everywhere? The Hosts: Marc, Tanya, Helen are amazing. They greeted us upon arrival with the warmth and sincerity of family. Such a genuine interest in ensuring and enabling our enjoyment. For our infant son of 9 months, they happily supplied a modern, safe and clean pack-and-play crib, exactly what we hoped for, as well as securing a friend with a car seat for our transfer from airport.
This November we’ve been a week in Marquise & Infinity Villa and it was perfect! First, let me tell you that the Villa is probably located at the best place to be in Mahe island. Not too busy, not too secluded, , in front of a convenience store, at the safe and quiet Glacis area, next to a tiny, almost yours beach, 5 mins by car from Beau Vallon, the most popular Mahe beach, which is also a busier area and not too far away from diving and watersports centers. Going to the city or any other parts of the island takes between 20 and 40 mins of beautiful mountain and jungle roads. Second, the place is incredibly gorgeous. It has a million dollar view. The sunset from its balcony is amazing. It is extremely well equipped with all kitchenware you can need and lot of other useful little things like night torch, bbq, a bed in the balcony, snorkel, mask, fins, kayak, etc. It also has mosquitos/insects net for the beds, which is very useful. Everything is in very good conditions and clean. Third, the hosts. They are such a wonderful people! We have done all the arrangements prior to our trip with Marc. The whole reservation process was great. Marc is very flexible and gave us a few options. We have even rented a Kia Picanto car from him that was in perfect conditions, a great car for Mahe terrain. Marc also passed us lot of info about Mahe before our travel so we could do some research before hand. Then, when we arrived, apart of meeting Marc, we also met Tania, who gave us tons of amazing tips to make the most of our days in Seychelles. All her recommendations and suggestions were great, she should definitely write a book like “Seychelles for Dummies”. She also helped us with dinner reservations. Finally, we have also met Helen. She lives next door and is always there for you to help with everything you might need, checking in from time to time willing to help you.
The villa was in a sublime location, we were right on the rocks over the water and we had direct access to a little essentially private beach with easy access to wonderful snorkelling and cayaking terrain. The verandah had an awesome double bed on it, and lounge furniture, and a hammock. We had palm trees with our own coconuts which we enjoyed opening and savouring. There was double parking upstairs too. The kitchen was totally ok and there were the basics for cooking too. The best thing about the experience was Helen, the lady who lived across the road and looked after us. Helen cleaned when we needed and does cook although we preferred to cook for ourselves as I am a vegan. Helen made us feel so welcome and at home. Marc was super helpful and put us in touch with all the right people and gave us invaluable advice which took all the thinking out of the holiday. The area is just out of the bust touristy part, which isn’t very busy anyway, and around the corner from the busstop, although we hired a car. Most of the time we jsut stayed where we were, and when we did venture out it was like coming home to paradise when we returned home. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Amazing location, kind hosts, very nice house and terrace. House very clean and well prepared. Marc and Helen provided us everything we needed, before we asked (e.g. life jacket and bodyboard for my wife). Mask and flippers were available for snorkeling, hammock and bed in the terrace were very comfortable. The car rental was very good and Marc even taught me how to drive on the left side! We would like to come back there!
