Owner info

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 13 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.
