We stayed at the beach house for two weeks with our two children (7 & 9) and it is such an amazing property. The balcony has a spectacular view over Anse Bernik on Eden Island and the mountains of Mahé. The property is extremely well presented with all of the facilities you could wish for. Eden Island is beautiful, peaceful and uncrowded which made for a very relaxing holiday. On the island's beaches, from my paddle board, we saw juvenille lemon sharks, rays, turtles, puffer fish, eels and a host of other fish species. Eden Island is well positioned on Mahé being close to the airport and a large supermarket but with the feel of being completely isolated with the added bonus of a golf buggy to get around. The rest of Mahé is within easy reach with a car with excellent snorkelling at Port Launey and the calm waters of Beau Valon. Great views of Mahé and Eden island can be had by climbing through the jungle to the mountain top along the Copelia trail.
It was great to meet the owner and we appreciated the excellent communication and flexibility. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beach house and hope to visit again one day soon.
We stayed here for 2 weeks, which is about 2 years not long enough. There were 5 of us, the three teenager children and us, an extra bed was put in the second bedroom for the youngest of the three, which was fine. The setting could not be more perfect, walk down to the small, rocky beach at the bottom of the garden, where there really is great snorkelling at high tide. Most of our days were spent snorkelling in the morning or evening, and going to one of the bigger beaches for the other half of the day. We walked and got the bus to Beau Vallon, where there is a big beach which is great for swimming. It is more busy there with lots of things to do, the girls loved it. We hired a car for a week or so and visited the beaches in the South, 30-45 minutes drive away, picture postcard stuff. There is a lovely garden in the property itself and we spent some hours sunbathing. The staff at the house could not do enough for us. We got married on the beach. They built an arch from bamboo on the beach and decorated it with flowers. It was beautiful. They were even the witnesses at our wedding. If you are looking for a quiet wedding in paradise, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
