Far more than what we expected!

  • 5 of 5

There is no words to describe the unbelievably warm hospitality of this wonderful family. They make the genie of Aladin shy away from "your wish is my command". My husband requested fresh farm milk to make

'malai" (cream) and Jude appeared with fresh milk the next evening! I casually mentioned that none of the restaurants make the traditional dessert - labado - and villa! They personally made it for us the next day. We were hosted to a delicious, authentic, home made Cerole meal and take away for the next day. Jude leant us a local phone, arranged car rental, helped with arrangements for trip tp Pralin, came and got us when we got lost on our way back the first day, and more ....

This was truly a home away from hame experience! We have travelled a lot and this was definitely one of the most memorable experience.

We highly recommend The Reef Palm for your next vacation.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to welcome Mr & Mrs Arshad Taufiq during the 9 nights they spent at The Reef Palm. As usual we always do our best to make the stay of our guest most enjoyable and ready to walk the extra miles to make the differences especially when it comes to special requests. I am glad the Arshad & Parveen enjoyed their vacation and we look forward to welcome them or any of their friends in the near future. It was great that you chose a self catering instead of the big Hotels. That is the ideal way to interact and learn the culture of the Seychellois. Once again thank you very much Regards Jude &Glynis Home Owner

More than we could ask for!

This was our second visit to Mahe, but our first stay at the Reef Palm. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed as family to Jude and Glynis' home. The accommodation is exactly what we were looking for--clean, well equipped and enough space to be a home base when not enjoying the amazing beaches. The views from the property are just lovely. Our two boys, 4 & 6, loved exploring the garden. There are fruits, vegetables, herbs and of course lots of live creatures to discover. They loved it! Jude and Glynis are the most gracious and accommodating hosts we have stayed with. The property is located in close proximity to Victoria as well as one of our favorite beaches, Anse Royale. We highly recommend others to stay here and would love to come stay again.

We have spent a fantastic holiday at Jude and Glynis's rental and warmly recommend it to people who want to enjoy clean and well-equipped self-catering accommodation. The place is very central, therefore handy to visit the island and beaches all over the place.To top it all, Jude and Glynis really do their best to make you feel at home and discover local dishes, help you plan a trip to Praslin, etc. A must !

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable. Pour notre arrivée était prévu de quoi faire les petits déjeuner, une coupe de fruits exotiques, des fleurs tropicales magnifiques, de quoi nous mettre déjà dans l'ambiance. La maison est très bien entretenue, d'une très grande propreté. Les serviettes de bain et drap sont changés tous les 4 jours. Nos hôtes étaient au petit soin pour nous, nous conseillant pour les sorties. le soir de notre départ Jude a eu l'immense gentillesse de nous préparer un dinner seychellois avec poissons grillés, arbre à pain, salade et fruits exotiques.

Owner's Response: Marie Josee and Dominique I am so glad that you both enjoyed your stay at The Reef Palm Self Catering. It was a pleasure to have you staying with us .We happy that you enjoyed the creole dishes that was cooked especially for you , it was the ideal opportunity to taste the local food . One other thing that made us very happy is the daily use of the open Kazebo in the garden where you both had breakfast and dinner surrounded by the green vegetation. We look forward to welcome you again or any friends, family members planning a holiday in Seychelles. Home Owner Jude &Glynis

Es war sehr schön.

  • 5 of 5

Wir fühlten uns sehr gut umsorgt .

Eine sehr nette Familie.

Die gesamte Wohnanlage ist noch schöner als auf den Bildern.

Wir empfehlen diese Unterkunft sehr gerne weiter.

Der einzige Tipp den wir weiter geben ist noch vor der Ankunft auf den Seychellen, sich ein Auto zu mieten , nur so kann man hier den Aufenthalt auf der Insel am besten genießen.

PS. besten dank an Jude und Glinis .

I worked in the Tourism Industry all my life and was gainfully employed with the National Airline Air Seychelles as cabin crew for the past 27 years where I got the exposure with various Nationalities and had the opportunity to interact with them.

Guide them on the interesting places to visit, so that no precious time is wasted during their vacation.

Jude Mein owner of Holiday Villa purchased this house in 1980

Why Jude Mein owner of Holiday Villa chose Seychelles

This Property is located on the East Coast , I would say in central area not far from all the places on interest to visit. It is about 5 km from the International Airport . Next door to the only Golf Course on Mahe Island that is within walking distance. There is also a tourist Craft Village called Domaine Val des Pres which opens daily!!

The Takamaka Bay Rum Distillery plant and restaurant is not far away and the Anse Royal Beach which is very popular with the tourist is about 15mins drive.

What makes this house unique

The Uniqueness of the Property is the large garden area with different types of fruit trees and palms. You can also see the beautiful view of the Reef Beach , listen and watch waves crushing on the coral coast reef . You wake up in the morning with the sound of birds singing in the trees and breath the fresh clean air!! The rate that we offer the client is very competitive and our clients are treatment wit care just like a family member. We always ready to walk the extra miles ensuring that there time spent with always be remembered.
