Beautiful home in the Seychelles
This is a large, comfortable home high on a hill with a pretty view. Kitchen was well equipped. Lots of space to spread out for our family of 5. Internet bandwidth low which made it very difficult to get work done. This area had lots of barking dogs and roosters crowing so not very quiet but perhaps any rental would be the same. Rental car is a must and the house is difficult to find. Thankfully the house manager drove down to meet us and had us follow her to the property.
Off the beaten path
Overall, my stay at reef view 1 was pleasant and I would recommend to someone who wanted a nice house away from the tourist activities. I liked the size and quality of the house. Sitting on the balcony sounded like being in the rainforest as you’re up in the mountains surrounded by trees. This house had everything you needed for a long stay.
If you want something closer to activities this may not be the house for you. We were about 20 minute drive from most of the things we wanted to do. Additially, our internet went down for 4 days and it wasn’t repaired. A portion of why I booked this house was because I needed internet to do work while away. Additionally, during my stay there was construction. I was given a slight discount for the building but it was more intrusive than described....I wouldn’t expect this to be anyone else’s experience.
All in all, it’s a great house off the beaten path and would be good for a long stay.
Thank you very much for your review, it has been a pleasure to have you at Reef View.
Regarding the Internet connection we are sorry but, as you have seen, we tried our level best to get the Internet provider to come and fix the problem.
Unfortunately in Seychelles there are only to ISPs and we have chosen Cable&Wireless, arguably the only reliable one on the island. The issue was not inside the apartment but a problem on the line outside the house, it was technically and legally outside our reach.
Regarding the works on the fencing wall, as we informed before your arrival, there was a delay due to the heavy rains in the previous weeks, it has been a mad season in Seychelles and we offered to compensate with a 10% discount that you may find slight but we consider substantial considering that our prices are already much lower than other properties with similar features.
In any case thanks for being open and straightforward, we really hope that overall you enjoyed the house, its great views and comforts.
Stunning Views, Beautiful Home!
My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Reef View Villa. The home is spacious, serene, and beautifully decorated. We felt safe and immediately at home once we arrived. I recommend visitors try to arrive in the day time if you are planning to be adventurous and rent your own car. Unfortunately, although the directions were very clear, my friends and I came in the dark and got a bit lost. Fortunately, the wonderful and tremendously helpful staff "found" us and led us directly to the villa. She also went out of her way to get us situated that first night. THANK YOU Teryl! We are certainly planning to return to Seychelles again and will definitely stay at the Reef View Villa.
Dear Jamila, Thank you for your nice words.
You will always be more than welcome to come back!
Good home base to explore Mahe by car for a week
House was extremely clean and comfortable. We shared two of the upstairs rooms. Someone else was separately renting the downstairs apartment and we had no indications that anyone was there- so if you're looking for privacy, no hesitation. Porches were awesome. Apart from cooking and sleeping, we spent most of our time on one of the many porches. You will need a car to get anywhere- no shops or restaurants nearby and the mountain roadway is steep. Unlike many places in the Seychelles, the included Wi-Fi is free.
They were perfect guests.
They never created any problems and were very precise in communications.
Further, they left Reef View Villa clean and tidy as they found it.
We are happy they enjoyed their stay and we hope to have them again with us !!
We highly recommend them as guests.
Thanks again for choosing us.
Awesome view/Great place to stay
We spent two weeks in this wonderful villa and enjoyed every single day!
The villa is very spacious and well equipped. There's even a BBQ-Grill available which we used to prepare the great fish bought in our favourite grocery store, the Hypermarket in Mahe. The terraces are huge and the views just awesome. Teryl, who welcomed us on our first day, was extremely helpful and gave us the chance to check in early and check out late. A wonderful bunch of exotic flowers made us feel welcome right from the beginning. We are looking forward to another great vacation at Reef View Villa.
We are sincerely grateful for this beautiful review and we are really happy that Sebastian and his family enjoyed their stay at Reef View.
And of course they are more than welcome to come back here anytime :-) Best wishes to them
Excellent place to stay!
Everything was just perfect! We wish to come again!
