Description from owner


We specialize in hosting large families and groups, often two families traveling together. We warmly welcome couples and small groups but we kindly request that couples and groups under six people contact us first before requesting a booking. Kindly also contact us before requesting a stay shorter than 3 nights. We are especially honored to often host families’ most important events including weddings, anniversaries and birthdays during their stays with us and we will do our best to accommodate your special requests.

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 of 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 service 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… Anse Marie Louise and Anse Parnel which are both accessible on foot.

Forbans Beach House is only 15 steps from one of the Seychelles' best beaches is a secluded villa ideal for large groups up to 13 people. It was our family home for over 3 years and we are pleased to offer our Beach House to you with the benefit of our significant upgrade and refurbishment which we completed in August, 2016. Our Beach House is not 'by' or 'near' the beach, it is beach front!!!

The Beach House is nestled in a private enclave with one other house and thus benefits from almost 100 meters of quasi-private beachfront. Furthermore the Anse Forbans beach is over 400 meters long and its sister beach (connected at low tide) is over 800 meters long. The Beach House sits off the main road via a private access road and is further buffered by high walls and with two locked access gates for private access to the beach. The Beach House has 700 square meters of lush tropical garden and is private, secluded and safe for small children and families.

The Beach House also features:

• All four bedrooms (entire house has A/C) 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 is also two rollaway beds, sofa bed, 3 baby cots and a children's bed;

• Of particular interest for two families/groups travelling together, one bedroom (of the four villa bedrooms) is a self contained flat with its own entrance and features a refrigerator, Nespresso machine, toaster, sink and couch (sofa bed), queen sized bed with orthopedic mattress, 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 spring mattress with ensuite full bathroom with A/C and pedestal fan.

The remaining two bedrooms each have two single beds with orthopedic mattresses, A/C, pedestal fans and they share a bathroom.

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