Overview

About the property

Fully serviced beachfront villa: onsite Villa Manager + 2 full time housekeepers

The beachhouse is truly beachfront on one of best beaches of Seychelles - 15 steps away from the front door of the villa. The Anse Forbans beach directly 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.

Our beachfront villa offers an authentic ‘kreole’ experience in a fully serviced villa - there is an on-site Villa Manager + 2 full time housekeepers exclusively dedicated to the beachfront villa. Our traditional creole style Beach House is nestled in a tropical garden and on a quasi private beach of Anse Forbans. In fact, we have the best placement (in comparison to the 4 star Hotel down the beach — not visible from our beach side due to the topography) on Anse Forbans Beach. Anse Forbans beach has a coral reef and many of our guests enjoy snorkeling just a few meters off the beach.

Anse Forbans is a worlds away from Seychelles’ version of Dubai-esque artificially reclaimed islands where the apartments are all crammed in tight rows like a London suburb and are enveloped with sparse artificial beaches. Anse Forbans is relatively undeveloped. Not only does Anse Forbans feature one of the best beaches in the Seychelles, we have many of other top beaches just minutes away…..plus Anse Marie Louise and Anse Parnel which are both accessible on foot. 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;

• One bedroom is a self contained flat with its own entrance and features a kitchenette and sofa bed, queen sized bed bathroom and its own terrace with teak dining table for 4/5 people which allows large groups to share the villa yet maintain privacy and separation;

• There is a second bedroom with orthopedic mattress next to its own full bathroom with A/C and pedestal fan.

• The remaining 2 bedrooms each have two single beds;

• 3 bathrooms – all with shower or bath/shower, sink and toilet. In addition there is also an outdoor shower near the beachfront;

• 2 outdoor terraces with separate dining areas: a teak table for up to 12 people and in separate terrace, a teak dining table for 4/5;

• Rattan furniture on terrace + 12 sun loungers;

• Indoor dining table for 6 people plus a living room with 2x3 person couches and several sitting chairs including ones for children with a large screen TV and all-regions DVD player (plus a library of movies for the whole family);

• Plastic picnic table + 8 plastic chairs which is perfect for easily moving around on the beach and having lazy lunches or dinners with the waters of Anse Forbans lapping at your feet.

• Other activities include petanques in the garden (2 sets of boules) and we also provide a multitude of family games including Backgammon, Chess, Chequers, Jenga, Scrabble, and many many more.

• Daily maid service & optional laundry service;

• Fully equipped kitchen & BBQ facilities – catering can be arranged by the House Manager

Why The Owner chose Africa

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 July 2015) 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.

Holiday of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The moment you arrive, you are made to feel blissfully at home, the sea calls to you from the garden gate whilst Marlene pours you a delicious glass of local juice. The long journey is forgotten except you have entered into a new world, a new home for a holiday of a lifetime. On my first morning, and then there after, I woke early to sea the sunrise a few feet from my bedroom, slipping into the sea as a new day beckoned... just incredible. Every time I had a wish or a question it was answered in minutes, it actually felt as though I had a fairy godmother. The house is personal, comfortable, commodious and just what I was hoping for and more. The people on this colourful idyl are as warm as the sea, it is truly amazing to come this far and feel so much at home, so part of this magical place. The day we went for a recommended boat trip out to visit other islands was our favourite. When we sleepily returned, not only was the house incredibly clean and tidy (as parents you appreciate what I'm feeling...) but most wonderful of all, Juliana had left us a delicious (i use the word advisedly as a cookery teacher myself) meal - with rice gently warming... again, you can imagine the shear delight of returning home to this welcome, the warm kindness in this moment, expresses my feelings about the place: thoroughly thoughtful, delicious in every way. I really cannot say enough how special we found this holiday. quiet, most lovely beaches, jungle to explore, friendly people to connect with - we are home but will keep this place in our hearts always, with our love staying on the island. Thank you so much. Magical.

Perfect place to stay in Mahe

  • 5 of 5

We spent about a week at Beach Kaz and really enjoyed it. The location is perfect for anyone who wants true beachfront access. Being more south on the island is really preferred. There is a much quieter vibe to the area compared to the north. All of the best beaches we found were also in the south.

The house is kept incredibly clean and is stocked beyond what you could ever need for a vacation. Marlene and the staff are incredibly nice and helpful. There is no way I would come to Mahe and stay at a resort when you have this option available. It is the best way to get a small taste of the local culture. We came away completely satisfied and would not hesitate to stay at Beach Kaz again.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our Family stay at Beach Kaz exceeded our expectations, it is a fantastic property that is especially well suited for a family get away with small kids. We were four adults and twin two year olds so have been finding normal hotel setups challenging, this house was like home away from home. The property online description and photos were an accurate representation and the house floorplan allowed everyone to have a bit of privacy. The house was impeccably clean, well maintained, well equipped with dishes, baby cribs, etc and the week day cleaning services by Juliana and Lucinda were perfect, not to mention friendly. We felt very much at home and enjoyed our time out on the patio and in the yard, relaxed that the kids were inside the fence. Truly have no complaints and were so pleased we found such a great find, with beach and yard, couldn't have hoped for any better. We felt the owner, house manager and staff all were very welcoming and were willing to go the extra the mile to ensure we had an exceptional stay. Overall our experience was fantastic, we would come back in a heartbeat.

Amazing time spent in this wonderful vacation home in Seychelles.

  • 5 of 5

During our recent trip to Seychelles, we rented this house at Anse Forbans. It was five of us -- four adults and one child (5 years old) -- but there was ample space for more people (for example, we didn't use one of the bedrooms at all.) This house provides a great way to enjoy an authentic Seychelles experience with the comforts of home. The house is very well maintained, clean and comfortable and really convenient for family and extended family or friends. There are many living areas in the house which made it very comfortable for all of us to spread out and read, play, visit the beach, entertain guests, etc. We really enjoyed eating most of our meals outside at the large dining table on the large porch where there was a sea breeze. We also enjoyed using the grill and the kayak, and there are a number of toys and other items available to help entertain the little ones. The beach is right beyond the front yard with a safety fence so children can't wander off there alone but it's close enough to have very easy back-and-forth access from beach to house. The property managers fully cleaned the house every weekday (this was a great service!!) and prepared a special local meal for us one night which was very good. The cable, Internet and air conditioning all worked well. Some supplies were provided when we arrived and anything else we easily purchased at local shops -- there are good local shops close by and also the Hypermarket in Victoria and little veggie/fruit/fish stands all around the island. The property managers were very helpful with any needs we had. We would definitely return!

Unbeatable

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the Beach Kaz. While looking into where to spend our vacation this year we were reluctant to go to the same place as last year but...

We realized there's there's no point in fixing something that is not only not broken but perfect, for our needs anyway.

Julianna's cooking was excellent again, Marlene took really good care of us and the house, the beach and everything else was, well, perfect. It's hard to describe what having a proper house right on the beach means with a 6 and 2 year old.

It is now a home away from home for us and we're looking forward to returning next year.
