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.

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

Unterkunft ( nicht Villa) mit großen Abstrichen / Bwertung in Englisch u. Deutsch

  • 1 of 5

The house is getting old, I would not call it a villa.

We were greeted warmly and picked up at the airport as agreed. The house made a good impression at first, but on closer inspection, some shortcomings came to light. Internet and WLAN did not work for me and my wife (14 days). TV only a transmitter, no bowl. Air conditioning only in the bedrooms, not in the living room. Mosquitoes without ends, sodas we could not sit out in the evening and if it was totally bitten. The pool was only ok in the first week, then the pump was broken and the water was green. The cleaning lady was a Katastrofe, it was agreed every 2 days to clean, but it was only unregulated and not thoroughly cleaned, in the end no more. The master shower room was not cleaned for 14 days. The kitchen floor has glued after 14 days. So a service catastrophe. The manager had with us 2 meeting appointments to which she did not come and not even canceled. There is a Nogo opposite the guest.

Unfortunately, we can not recommend this object. There we only felt ripped off. If the landlords were based in Germany, I would have filed for damages.

Das Haus ist in die Jahre gekommen, ich würde es nicht als Villa bezeichnen.

Wir wurden freundlich empfangen und auch am Flughafen wie vereinbart abgeholt. Das Haus machte zuerst einen guten Eindruck, aber bei genauerem Hinsehen kamen einige Mängel zum Vorschein. Internet und WLAN funktionierten bei mir und meiner Frau nicht ( 14 Tage). TV nur eine Sender , keine Schüssel. Klimaanlage nur in den Schlafräumen, nicht im Wohnraum. Moskitos ohne enden, so das wir Abends nicht im Freien sitzen konnten und wenn doch total zerstochen wurden. Der Pool war nur in der ersten Woche in Ordnung, dann war die Pumpe defekt und das Wasser war grün. Die Putz- Dame war eine Katastrophe, es war vereinbart alle 2 Tage zu putzen, aber es wurde nur unregelmäßig und nicht gründlich gereinigt, zum Schluss gar nicht mehr. Der Masterduschraum wurde 14 Tage nicht sauber gemacht. Der Küchenfußboden hat nach 14 Tagen geklebt. Service also eine Katastrophe. Die Managerin hatte mit uns 2 Besprechungstermine zu denen sie nicht gekommen ist und nicht mal abgesagt hat. Da ist ein No go dem Gast gegenüber.

Wir können das Objekt leider nicht weiter empfehlen. Dort fühlten wir uns nur Abgezockt. Wären die Vermieter in Deutschland ansässig, hätte ich auf Schadenersatz geklagt. Für diese Geld gibt es weitaus besser Häuser auf Praslin.

Wir sind sehr entäuscht.

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.
