Very Good

“Lovely environment and wonderful hosts!!!”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2015

My family and I spent four nights in cottage number 1 and had a wonderful time. We rented a car and had full independence in the cottage with the freedom of exploring the island at our own pace. The host family is absolutely wonderful, making every single need and wish happen with an amazing open heart. The cottage is functional and peaceful, with an extremely well taken garden and gorgeous views of the sea. For people wanting to escape from the hotel type of holiday, this guest house is a highly recommended alternative.

“A home away from home”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2014

Wonderful safe clean cottage with everything that could be needed for a comfortable stay, extremely hospitable hosts made us feel welcome as guests and we departed as friends. A great garden to relax in, very cool sea breeze, very close to shop and bus stop and beaches. Host family was incredible, my kids are already planning their next visit to their friends!

“feel like home”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2013

nearly a weak we stayed in the two floors Cottage no.2 and loved sitting on that quite, upstairs exposed balcony with amazing view to the mountains and the ocean - and to watch the flight of the fruitbats in the evening. The house is new (2011), extremely(!)clean and with nice furniture. We didn't miss anything and if we had a question, Robin -that nice guy and his lovely wife francesca- were very helpful and open minded. They gave us hints and we learned about local life. Francesca & Robin, thank you!

“Greetings from Russia! It was our best vacations on Seychelles!”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2013

Hi! We have just returned with my wife from Seychelles. It was our third trip on Seychelles. This time we decided to stay at Robin's appartaments. We stayed there for 15 days, first part of our vacation we spent in cottage # 1 and the second half in cottage # 2. All cottages are very nice! You will find everything for your life there (cable TV, AC, Wi-Fi, Safe deposit). Separatelly I wouild like to pay you attention on kitchen. My wife really enjoed cooking there because you can find everything what you need. A Big Thank You to Francesca! As I said we can not define which cottage is better. They all are beautiful and very nice! The view from cottages are amazing (mountains and ocean)! Robin and Francesca are the most hospital and kind people we ever met before! Next time we certainly will stay at their appartaments! I can easily say that we become one big family!

“A true Seychellois experience”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

If you want to get a taste of real life on Mahe Island, you must stay with Robyn and Francesca at their au Cap Self Catering guesthouses. Their hospitality and generousness is more than anyone can expect when staying abroad. They are the most wonderful and sincere people and hosts who helped us every step of the way in exploring the beauty of the Seychelles. Robyn even taught us how to make his famous Creole Octopus curry, which was much better than what we had at any restaurant while there. We are a couple from Macedonia on our honeymoon and we stayed in Cottage number 2. We couldn't have asked for a nicer home away from home, especially during this important time for us. The cottage was very well equipped, with all the essentials you would need, and we got cleaning service every few days which was a very nice added bonus. The two balconies on both floors of the house enabled us to enjoy all home-cooked meals and late night beers overlooking the Indian Ocean. The view of the ocean and the mountains from all sides of the house was simply breathtaking. The location was very peaceful. We had some of the best sleep of our lives, and were able to really relax during our stay. The location is very close to the beach, and also a good starting point to explore the island due to its proximity to some of the nicest beaches on both the east and west coast. Overall we were very satisfied with our honeymoon and we hope to come back one day to visit these beautiful people again.

“Amazingly welcoming - cannot wait to go back!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

We stayed with Robin and Francesca for 2 weeks in august. It was the most welcomed we have felt - ever! From the minute we got there to the minute we left, the family looked after us, giving us lots of hints and tips about where to go and they regularly dropped off treats which they grow in their garden. They really made us feel part of the family; topping off our amazing holiday with a family barbecue. We stayed in the smaller cottage and it was absolutely perfect. Francesca cleaned and changed the sheets every 3 days, not a service you normally expect with self catering. The kitchen is great for cooking your own meals if you fancy staying in and eating on the verandah. Mahe itself is just beautiful, I have been to many places in the world but this by far and away is the most wonderful. The people are friendly, the beaches are secluded and relaxing and the food is delicious. When we go back again, which is not even a question, we will definitely stay with Robin and Francesca. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience and a perfect holiday.

“Great Hospitality”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

These 2 stunning guesthouses were our homes for 2 months. The amazing hosts Robin and Fransesca are the most friendly people on Mahé. The garden has a great view and the houses are clean with all facilities needed and much more. We got assistance at all times, including pick up and drop off at the airport, drive to restaurants and shops near by etc. The area is quiet and safe, short walk to buses and shops. Good idea to rent a car to get around. Bus distance to favorite anse Royal with clean beach and good snorkelling. If you want a chill and good time holiday this is the place! No words can describe the hospitality at au Cap Self-Catering.
