Sweet Dreams Are Made of This....
Sweet Dreams Are Made of This....
Having just returned from a glorious month-long stay at this stunning apartment in the magical Seychelles’ Eden Island, we must thank Zelda, the owner, for all her help and advice in making this a truly magical, memorable holiday. And, having visited most of the island’s 5-star hotels during our stay, we can happily confirm that the Eden Island package is by far and away the best choice! The accommodation is truly 5-star all the way - well-equipped, beautifully furnished, and with magnificent views from the rear patio balcony over the water to the main island of Mahe, we felt utterly pampered and spoilt. Furthermore, on Eden Island, guests have every imaginable convenience to hand: gift shop, food shop, deli, restaurants to suit all budgets, tennis-court (spotlit in the evenings), great gym, infinity swimming-pool (as well as other pools dotted around the beautiful grounds), and a fab beach literally a hop, skip and jump from the apartment. Using the golf-cart buggy provided we joyfully travelled each day to enjoy morning coffee & croissants sitting outside the little café, where we lazily observed the fishing-boats, charters and yachts come and go from the marina, and pondered whether we could rustle up the energy to go further afield that day. The island of Mahe is, simply, glorious; the beaches are out of this world, and there is an intoxicating mix of tropical forest and quaint villages, plus the fascinating town of Victoria, in which you could spend days on end people-watching in the streets and at the market – it was just all so good we decided against trips to any other island – Mahe really should not be overlooked as your one and only destination., and this stylish and luxurious apartment is everything you could wish for and more – it is perfect for couples! Driving on Mahe is a dream – easy, unstressful, and the sights we saw as we drove around will forever stay in our memories. Every view along the coastlines is, in a word, stunning. The apartment is even better than it looks in the photographs - the spacious and luxurious bedroom has its own private balcony facing out to the front of the building (take your pick each day) with top-notch en-suite facilites and crisp white bedlinen. We highly, highly recommend this beautiful apartment, and would go back in a flash! And on those rare occasions when you feel like a little home relaxation, and have the grill on the go outside, the massive cinema-size TV and DSTV TV is an added bonus...

What can I say, this place was awesome! The first thing you notice walking to L'Escape is the view of the turquoise marina and the verdant, velvety mountains of Mahé beyond. The texture of the scenery cannot be fully captured in photos, and so it is really quite striking when you see it for the first time. The interior is very cool, and even impressed the snobbish architect I was traveling with (a real feat, I might add:). The location within Eden Island also proved to be supremely convenient, as there is a beach within a few steps of the apartment and several pools nearby. The bars and restaurants within the resort (which can all be accessed with the super-fun EPV) are great, particularly in getting local tips. Say hi to Lynne, one of the bartenders at the Marina bar - she is great to hang out with and a good source of information about the islands. Getting out of Eden Island does require some motivation, as there are enough amenities to keep oneself occupied for several days. However, the Seychelles, as everyone knows, is truly a sight to behold, and the best beaches on Mahé are within a 30 minutes's drive (particularly Beau Vallon for people watching, and Petite Boileau for solitude). Being on Mahé is great, because, unlike the other islands, you have the beach and the mountains (a day up on Morne Seychellois is definitely a must-do), and the conveniences of Victoria are a stone's throw away. After a day of traveling around Mahé or the other islands, there is nothing quite like coming home to air-conditioned luxury, particularly if you've picked up some fish and can throw it on the grill outside. Be sure to get Zelda's tips for staying in Eden Island/Seychelles, as they proved to be very convenient during our stay. We were really sad to leave this place, and hope to come back soon. The Seychelles is a long haul from the States, but this place was definitely worth the journey!

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We live and work in South Africa and bought the apartment in the Seychelles 2 years ago. My husband is a keen fly fisherman, and fly-fishing in the Seychelles is simply unsurpassed anywhere in the world. The un-spoilt beauty of the Seychelles beaches and up market and well-run resort that is Eden Island clinched the deal for us. For our 9 year old daughter Mia, it's paradise. She usually makes friends on day 1 and we rarely see her once she wakes up in the mornings. She rides her bike or walks to whatever beach takes her fancy, or meets her friends at one of the swimming pools. She loves swimming and snorkeling and we often canoe to the outlying islands. L'escape is truly what its name suggests: Our ultimate escape!
Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
We loved this apartment as it's right on the water, situated in Parcel 28 of the Eden Island resort. It is on the 1st floor and offers beautiful views of the Indian ocean and Mahe's granite mountains beyond.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Waking up in paradise every day, in air-conditioned luxury and with one of the best views in the world is our idea of perfection! The questions of the day are usually: Shall we pop in at the deli for some breakfast, or enjoy eggs and bacon on the patio? Shall we go to one of Eden Island's beaches or do we feel more energetic? If so, there are so many choices - off to gym (it's free for us and our guests), or perhaps snorkeling, canoeing, taking a catamaran to another island. Maybe hop in the car and drive to one of the more than 70 other beaches on Mahe? Or perhaps cycle to Victoria (just 3km away) to do some shopping at the market. Maybe buy some fresh fish on the way back.
