Victoria house description

UP TO 15% DISCOUNT STAYS FROM 5th September to 4th October. PLEASE CONTACT US for more information.
The beachhouse is truly beachfront on one of best beaches of Seychelles - 20 steps away from the front door of the villa. The Anse Forbans beach in front our villa is white sand and unlike some 'seafront' villas, the beach house does not have a road in front of it. It is the perfect setting for large groups (such as two families/friends holidaying together) or a large family to have the perfect tropical holiday on a magnificent quasi-private beach.
You are in a private secluded environment. Our garden & Anse Forbans beach will make you feel that you have been taken away to another world far away. Imagine waking up and walking through a lush garden to lounge and swim at this magnificent beach, napping under the coco trees, swimming in the calm waters while your children play on the beach or in an enclosed private garden. The privacy and tranquility of the Beach House are further enhanced by a high wall and fence around the perimeter of the property. On the beach in the garden of the beach house, there is a corner shaded by coco trees - ideal for sundowners & evening meals. Alfresco dining takes on whole new meaning with the waves of Anse Forbans lapping at your feet.
Long peaceful nature walks whether on Anse Forbans beach or in the nearby undisturbed forests are popular with visitors. Kayaking, swimming and snorkeling amongst the schools of fish await at Anse Forbans and a short stroll away is the famous surfing beach of Anse Parnel beach. A local grocery store is only 200 meters away – step inside and you will be taken back to the Seychelles of yesterday with the warm service of the proprietor. The villa also offers a wide range of amenities for children (see below). Your children will love running through the garden or playing on the beach while the parents can lounge nearby on the beach or terrasse. The beachhouse has daily maid service and a local cook can conjure up local specialities and is highly recommended. Babysitting is also possible.
The Beach House also features:
• All four bedrooms are air conditioned and feature orthopedic spring mattresses and pedestal fans enabling peaceful sleep to the tranquil sounds of the waves of Anse Forbans – there are also two rollaway beds, a sofa bed, 3 baby cots with orthopedic spring mattresses and a children’s bed;

                          Why Victoria:
                          We found paradise!!!! After years of searching for a beachfront property on Mahe, we came across an unpolished diamond in the Garden of Eden – that is, the Beach House at Anse Forbans. We moved to the Seychelles in 2009 and began renovating the house and landscaping the garden. We lived in the Beach House at Anse Forbans for three years with our son during his toddler years. He loved it and still considers it home. Two to three times a day he played on the beach at Anse Forbans, making sandcastles, chasing crabs, watching the turtles lay eggs, exploring the nooks and crannies of both Anse Forbans and the adjacent Anse Marie Louise and to our great relief, often napping in the shade of the coconut trees. We enjoyed pina coladas with coco cream from the coconuts of the garden and local rum accompanied by fresh red snapper grilled with smoked breadfruit. Anse Forbans is truly one of Seychelles best beaches and unlike the more famous beaches elsewhere in the Seychelles, its relatively empty of crowds. You will often find yourself alone on the Anse Forbans beach! We have recently renovated (last major maintenance and renovation completed in June 2013) and upgraded the house. We now have the opportunity to share with you what life is like living on one of the best beaches in the Seychelles. It was a dream come true for us. We are pleased that others are able to experience the joy that we had in living in Anse Forbans. We take pride in our house and work hard to maintain it.
