Why Jude Mein owner of Holiday Villa chose Seychelles
This Property is located on the East Coast , I would say in central area not far from all the places on interest to visit. It is about 5 km from the International Airport . Next door to the only Golf Course on Mahe Island that is within walking distance. There is also a tourist Craft Village called Domaine Val des Pres which opens daily!! The Takamaka Bay Rum Distillery plant and restaurant is not far away and the Anse Royal Beach which is very popular with the tourist is about 15mins drive.
What makes this House unique
The Uniqueness of the Property is the large garden area with different types of fruit trees and palms. You can also see the beautiful view of the Reef Beach , listen and watch waves crushing on the coral coast reef . You wake up in the morning with the sound of birds singing in the trees and breath the fresh clean air!! The rate that we offer the client is very competitive and our clients are treatment wit care just like a family member. We always ready to walk the extra miles ensuring that there time spent with always be remembered.

What more could one ask ..
they became friends
It was a pleasure to have both John and Christine staying at The Reef Palm Villa.
As usual we always ready to walk the extra miles ensuring that our guests are happy through out there stay ,ready to assist them with any inquiries to facilitate there vacation.
As we have a fairly big garden with different fruit trees ,it is always a pleasure to share the fruits with our guests, especially as it is 100% organic, natural !!
Something special that we also offered our guests is the Coco nuts pulp which is rare to find but I make sure that it is always available for all the guests. They love it as it is something they never ate before. Just for your information the Coco Nut Pulp is a spongy part of the inner nut that would become the root of the tree if not harvested.
Very nice English couple John and Christine pleasant personality.
Nice apartment and very friendly hosts
Very nice apartment. Owners very nice and friendly .Everything was excellent. If possible we will come again.
Appreciate the review . I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Reef Palm. It was a pleasure that have you and your wife staying with us. We look forward to welcome you back in the near future.
Wishing you all the very best with your future projects.
Far more than what we expected!
There is no words to describe the unbelievably warm hospitality of this wonderful family. They make the genie of Aladin shy away from "your wish is my command". My husband requested fresh farm milk to make
'malai" (cream) and Jude appeared with fresh milk the next evening! I casually mentioned that none of the restaurants make the traditional dessert - labado - and villa! They personally made it for us the next day. We were hosted to a delicious, authentic, home made Cerole meal and take away for the next day. Jude leant us a local phone, arranged car rental, helped with arrangements for trip tp Pralin, came and got us when we got lost on our way back the first day, and more ....
This was truly a home away from hame experience! We have travelled a lot and this was definitely one of the most memorable experience.
We highly recommend The Reef Palm for your next vacation.

It was a pleasure to welcome Mr & Mrs Arshad Taufiq during the 9 nights they spent at The Reef Palm. As usual we always do our best to make the stay of our guest most enjoyable and ready to walk the extra miles to make the differences especially when it comes to special requests.
I am glad the Arshad & Parveen enjoyed their vacation and we look forward to welcome them or any of their friends in the near future. It was great that you chose a self catering instead of the big Hotels. That is the ideal way to interact and learn the culture of the Seychellois.
Once again thank you very much
More than we could ask for!
This was our second visit to Mahe, but our first stay at the Reef Palm. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed as family to Jude and Glynis' home. The accommodation is exactly what we were looking for--clean, well equipped and enough space to be a home base when not enjoying the amazing beaches. The views from the property are just lovely. Our two boys, 4 & 6, loved exploring the garden. There are fruits, vegetables, herbs and of course lots of live creatures to discover. They loved it! Jude and Glynis are the most gracious and accommodating hosts we have stayed with. The property is located in close proximity to Victoria as well as one of our favorite beaches, Anse Royale. We highly recommend others to stay here and would love to come stay again.
We have spent a fantastic holiday at Jude and Glynis's rental and warmly recommend it to people who want to enjoy clean and well-equipped self-catering accommodation. The place is very central, therefore handy to visit the island and beaches all over the place.To top it all, Jude and Glynis really do their best to make you feel at home and discover local dishes, help you plan a trip to Praslin, etc. A must !
Un grand merci à Jude et Glynis, pour leur accueil, leur sourire, tous leurs bons conseils pour découvrir leur île. La location est parfaite, d'une propreté irréprochable. Merci de nous avoir fait découvrir vos plats types des Seychelles. Un séjour qui nous a enchanté. Nous ne manquerons pas de revenir.
Au plaisir de vous revoir.
It was a pleasure to have you and Deni staying at The Reef Palm.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcome you or your friends in the near future.
Yes we glad that you liked the special creole dishes prepare by wife Glynis.
Do not hesitate to get in touch with us the next time you plan another holiday in Seychelles.
