If you wish to take advantage of these services, the Villa Managers will be more than happy to assist.


Should you, or any other persons who come to visit you, cause damage to the house or its contents, you will be held responsible for the damage and the costs deriving will be charged to you at the moment of departure.

We decline all responsibility for any harm you may suffer due to events connected with the use of the house, of the garden (including the rocks in front of the sea) including physical injury and material damage and losses suffered as a result of fire, robbery or any other kind of criminal activity.


The villa is always rented as a whole house, no shared rooms, so your privacy is guaranteed.


We both live in Europe and unfortunately don't meet most of our guests. But our managers will greet the guests upon arrival and will be more than happy to assist in anything they might need to make sure they experience the unique Seychelllois hospitality!


One can get public transport to go all over the island including the world famous Anse Lazio to the north. Regular ferry and catamaran services operate between the islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue.

But we highly recommend renting a car since one cannot do everything by foot on Praslin. So driving around is the best way to explore all the amazing beaches the island has to offer. We can book it in advance to be will be delivered upon arrival or we can also advise on local agencies if you wish to make your on reservation.

About Aretha & Jonathan Adeline

Born in the Seychelles and educated in the United Kingdom, the Seychelles has always been and remain my perfect holiday destination!

I currently live in Europe and once a year, I go 'home' to my house whose architecture and decor is a perfect relaxing holiday home!

Aretha & Jonathan Adeline purchased this villa in 2007

Why Aretha & Jonathan Adeline chose Baie Sainte Anne

I fell in love and purchased the property back in the year 2000 for its serene and tranquil tropical forest and set about building the most appropriate house for the area in 2007.

The house could only be a wooden house so that it sits in nature perfectly and elevated enough to clear the tree line to have a great view on the bay.

What makes this villa unique

The high vaulted cathedral ceiling of the main living room provides a cosy and warm feeling and the view from the veranda is fabulous.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Jonathan was a great host steadily replying our general and specific inquiries prior booking and close to the arrival date. Not only the place was stunning, fully equipped and immersed in a vivid green spot, but Jonathan's colleague (Dan) made us feel at home right from the first moment. Someone came to pick us up from the airport and took us to the listing. Here we were welcomed with a refreshing drink which recharged us completely. He then arranged for us the car rent (which was delivered directly at the villa), organized tours (Valle Coco de mer, La Digue), snorkeling sessions (St Pierre) and last but not least prepared for us tasty and elegant Creole dinners. Dan definitely went above and beyond my expectations and will recommend his Villa via any channels. Do not hesitate to book this place if you decide to come and stay in Praslin (Seychelles).

Best place to stay with family or fiends.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Dan, Nadine and Jonathan

I wish to thank you for this opportunity to stay in your lovely Villa. We felt ourselves like at home there. Dan and Nadine were a great hosts. Our journey to and from Prasline, also the roundtrips went extremely smoothly, offering a great and relaxing time on Prasline. Guided tours, made by Dan, were interesting, especially visiting Coco de Mar forest in Vallée De Mai. Best beach on Prasline was Anse Lazio, which was also good for snorkeling. I saw there probably the largest colony of rays I have ever seen ?

Visiting La Digue is a must do thing – enjoy big waves at Grande Anse and magnificent views and snorkeling at Anse Source d'Argent. I suggest to use the bicycles there, which were organized by Dan for us already to the port, so we did not have to spend a time to find bicycles suitable also for our children. Instead of that we had more time to spend on La Dique.

I am still missing those delicious lunches and dinners, made by Dan and Nadine. The Octopus and smoked fish were the best ones I tried on Seychelles – you need seriously think about opening your own restaurant ?

We stayed in different places on Seychelles, and without a doubt, this was the best place we stayed there. With very reasonable price you can get at least four stars accommodation. If you are travelling with children , it will be a great choice for you, having enough space and privacy.

I give my highest recommendations to Villa Paille en Gueueand would definitely use it again.

Best regards,

Owner's Response: Dear Indreke, Thanks very much for your review which is very much appreciated. I especially wish to extend my thanks to you regarding the full extent of the extra services provided by the Villa Manager Dan- as a lot of the other Villa's available are 100% self catering and we believe the added service provided is to the benefit of the guests to ensure they have the perfect holiday in a safe and serene environment. I also wish to add that we provide an immediate 10% discount on return clients and so we wish you and your family well and look forward to hear from you in the future. Very best regards Jonathan

Très agréable maison. Vaste et confortable.

  • 4 of 5

Bettina la gouvernante est très attentionnée, très agréable et cuisine très bien.

Villa pleine de charme. Bonne prestation.

Seul bémol la vue pourrait être magnifique si il n'y avait pas les arbres pour la cachée.

Mooie ruime villa, van alle gemakken voorzien met voldoende privacy

  • 4 of 5

Ruimtes zijn ruim opgezet, master gedroom douche is erg fijn en het ruimte terras buiten is top!

We werden vriendelijk ontvangen door de huismeesters.

1 punt van kritiek was het koken door de huismeester. Deze service is gratis, je betaald alleen de boodschappen zo staat op de site. Echter werd er zonder dit vooraf te vermelden ook kosten in rekening gebracht voor het halen van de boodschappen (totaal 30 EUR voor 1x boodschappen doen). Uiteindelijk hebben we voor 3x thuis eten ruim 180 eur betaald voor 2 personen. Dit was wat ons betreft veel te duur voor wat je krijgt.
