Description:

The Takamaka Beach Villas are located on Cerf Island, next to the ocean, and are perfect for holidaymakers looking for peace and privacy during their getaway. The stunning local beach offers an evergreen canopy of coconut palm trees and takamaka trees, providing plenty of natural shade all day-long. The beach, as is the case with the rest of the island, is part of the protected Sainte Anne Marine Park, a collection of a dozen or so small islands surrounding a beautiful lagoon.

Cerf Island offers little in the way of what you'd call roads or paths. In fact, the closest thing to a road or walkway is the beach that circles the island, although it does tend to narrow at high tide, hence the trodden mud paths further inland, which lead to wider beaches or to one of the two beach restaurants on teh island. Don't worry about trespassing, however, as the friendly atmosphere on Cerf is almost like a little beach village. The pathways lead past shipwrecks, old chests, and other 'island treasures' that show the rich history and development of the island.

Thankfully, the beach differs from others in the Seychelles, in that it is rarely cleared of natural things such as flotsam, seaweed, or jetsam. This makes it a real natural beach. The seaweed in particular is vital for the turtles and tortoises around the Seychelles, and is also a sign that the underwater scenery of the Seychelles is thriving.

The Takamaka Beach Vilas are found in an authentic little corner of the Seychelles, in that there are no streets, cars, discos, or shops. However, you're never more than about 2 km (1.25 miles) away from Mahé, something you're reminded of every time you look out over the sea and spot the imposing silhouette of Mahé with its rainforest 'skyline' and hefty granite formations. You can also see the artificial Eden Island, as well as Victoria, the smallest capital city in the world. If you take a look to the north, you can see some modern wind-turbines, also built on an artificial island. Just a bit further along, you have an open view of the Indian Ocean.

The taxi-boat, run by Cerf Island's Habitation hotel, runs up to four times each day. The boat is perfect for those staying on Cerf who want to discover Mahé or Eden Island for themselves. This also means that you can self-cater while on Cerf, as there are shops, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, and take-aways in Victoria, on Mahé, as well as near the jetty on Eden Island. Because the Seychelles sunset is at around 18:00 each day throughout the year, the last boat of the day runs at 17:30 from Eden Island to Cerf. Therefore, it certainly helps to be a fan of absolute tranquillity and solitude to stay on Cerf Island. Guests then have the option of preparing their own dinner, or visiting one of Cerf Island's two beach restaurants.

The Takamaka Beach Villas offer a veranda with view, and outdoor furniture (two loungers, a table, and four chairs), helping you make the most of the space. Once you enter the villa through one of the two large glass doors, you'll find the lounge and the bedroom, which is equipped with a kingsize double bed. The bedroom also offers a large en suite bathroom, including a shower, double wash basin, and a WC. The lounge consists of a comfortable seating area that joins onto an American-style kitchen with a refrigerator, stove, oven, toaster, and more. Thanks to the good kitchen facilities, guests have the option to self-cater for their holiday instead of eating breakfast and dinner in one of the island's restaurants.

The taxi boat of the hotel Habitation runs several times a day between Mahé (Eden Island Jetty) and Cerf Island:

- From Cerf Island:
05:30 €5 and only available for early departures
07:00 €5
09:15 Free of charge for all guests
13:00 Free of charge for all guests

Activities and specials:

  • There is a great snorkelling spot right on your doorstep that can be accessed from the beach.
  • For breakfast and dinner, we recommend the l'Habitation Restaurant, which can be reached by walking 150m along the beach.
  • The transfer between Cerf Island and Mahé is simple thanks to the Habitation hotel's lagoon taxi, which makes the trip several times a day, and takes just 5 minutes.

Loved the villa with all the required items, Rooms , kitchen are pretty clean and also with kitchen utensils which are required but one rice cooker was missing. But anyway we managed with other utensils. Awesome place to stay and hear the beautiful songs of birds and the view of the cloud covered Mahe island was superb , loved the island with very less people and privacy.

★★★★☆ 06.12.2018

We booked the Takamaka Beach Villa and were very pleased. The accommodation is beautiful, as shown in the pictures, in addition we got a "welcome package", the bread, butter, eggs, milk and juice contained, there were also teabags and (instant) coffee in the house, salt and pepper. The location is very good, almost right on the beach (although on Cerf probably as good as any accommodations are close to the beach). In addition to the beach chairs in front of the house there were 2 additional beach chairs on the beach. The condition of the bath could be optimized (here, in our opinion, mildew on the upper tiles and the mirror a bit peeled off), otherwise we have nothing to complain about.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate

★★☆☆☆ 19.09.2018

Unfortunately I can not say that much about this place. we had the second and it does not work. No cosiness, very dirty, ants in bed and in the rain the water ran down the walls in the house. Gas bottle to cook was none available. The way to the villa was already adventure. At high tide, you have to go through the water because the paths are not extended. Locking the doors was also a problem. The hair dryer did not work either. The first villa had a lot more that did not work. The island is amazing ... I would recommend the La Habitation.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
