The beautiful apartments of the Bord Mer Villa are, as you might expect, located right on the coast, just 40m or so across the road from the world-famous Beau Vallon beach. The property is surrounded by tropical palm trees, and lies within walking distance of bars, shops, and restaurants.
2 × Suite (up to 2 people)
Activities and specials:
- Thanks to their location on Beau Vallon beach, the apartments are ideally-located for watersports fans or those who wish to swim in the sea.
- The neighbouring Boat House restaurant offers one of the best Creole buffets in the Seychelles, and is definitely well worth a try.
- Further bars and restaurants, as well as shops and supermarkets, are located in immediate proximity to the villa (ideal for self-caterers).
- The landlady of the Bord Mer Villa will be happy to organise excursions, rental cars, and more.
We'll start off with the most important information about this villa. The Bord Mer Villa is a rare prospect in that it has received an award from the Seychelles Tourism Office. This is no mean feat, and not something a lot of accommodations acheive. The landlady who runs the estate has certainly worked hard for the award, providing high levels of service in an excellent location, and an overall warmth that will satisfy any Seychelles holidaymaker looking for self-catering accommodation.
The estate is located in the middle of a beautifully-arranged palm tree garden, and only separated from the world-famous Beau Vallon beach by the adjacent main road. The Bord Mer lies next to the Boat House, an excellent restaurant that offers Beau Vallon's best view, and one of the Seychelles' most delicious Creole buffets. As well as this, there are a number of other restaurants, bars, and supermarkets in the area, making the Bord Mer Villa one of the few accommodations on Mahé where a rental car isn't needed to get around. That said, the landlady will be more than happy to arrange a car for you on a day-by-day basis, giving you maximum flexibility for your holiday. She'll also gladly lead you on one of her tours across Mahé; just let her know, and she'll give you all the information you need about the Seychelles' largest island.
The Bord Mer Villa is an estate consisting of 4 freshly-furnished colonial-style houses which house the 9 apartments (7 prestige rooms and 2 suites). The apartments come equipped with similar furnishings, and in two different sizes. The larger suites measure 60m², and the prestige rooms are 40m², which is nevertheless plenty big enough for a couple.
Size: 40 m²
Facilities: Spacious bedrooms with huge double bed, large en suite bathroom with WC, shower and hand basin, air-conditioning, TV lounge, fully-equipped kitchen, veranda with lovely garden view, free WiFi.

The location is a matter of taste. It was too central to us in the turmoil of Beau Vallon. Until 23 o'clock you have to expect increased noise, as nearby bars still play music. But it was not that bad for us. Breakfast on the private terrace is a plus. Staff super friendly. Has everything else fit. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Bord Mer Villa, is located directly on the beach. The staff was very attentive and friendly, the order of the breakfast works very well! Our room was very big and clean! Wi-Fi was free! For us the location of the Guesthaus was ideal. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Clean area with close proximity to the beautiful beach, but not a quiet location, because right on the relatively busy street. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very kind staff (Ivana friendly and helpful person, always cheerful!), informal location suitable for families with children, beach a few meters away. Great free wifi Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Nice room, very central location with restaurants, bars and beach in the immediate vicinity. ATM and supermarket, however, about 20 minutes on foot away. Breakfast is excellent and will be delivered directly to your room. Very friendly staff. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very nice guesthouse close to the beach- Recommended accommodation with spacious apartments in a central location. Everything you need in the vicinity: bars, restaurants, Grillstaende, bus etc. The staff is very warm and friendly (especially Ivana and Enda) and helps with all questions. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast, which is served on the balcony very much. The spartan kitchen did not bother us, as we wanted to enjoy the local food on holiday. We ate at the local Grillstaenden cheap and delicious local dishes. The simple bathroom was completely sufficient. If you are looking for peace is wrong here and should book a hotel in the south of the island. With the bus (a real experience) and some time to explore much of the island. We also spent 3 days on Praslin and La Digue. Highly recommended. A kl. Note: If you inform yourself before the trip about local conditions and the situation you will not be disappointed later. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Here we were received very friendly. The apartment was great. There is nothing missing. The breakfast on the terrace was great. The service was very friendly. The location with 100 m to the beach very central. The bus stop was 100 meters. To the supermarket 300 m. To the rest. 10 m. Otherwise were on the beach div. Meals offered. For a fee we were able to use the room on the last day until the evening, which was very positive as it was the only rainy day in Seychelles. The app. is definitely recommended. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice and comfortable apartments, we really enjoyed the breakfast in the room! The only drawback is the proximity of the road a little too noisy! Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
The booked room was big enough and spacious, staff friendly and helpful. What we liked less, for the late check-out we were charged 70, - €, which were only accepted in cash. Although we spent 8 nights in this house. Here you could be a bit more accommodating. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The staff was friendly. The location cheap. The room with kitchen, couch and 3rd bed spacious. Breakfast on the private balcony was nice. Unfortunately, the area was a bit worn and the way with luggage to the room an obstacle course. With a few simple steps you could change something here but apparently no one is responsible. This is a pity. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation was clean and nice. The staff was very friendly. A bottle of water on arrival would have been nice as we arrived very thirsty and actually had no nerve finding a supermarket. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very well placed 2 steps from the beautiful beach of Beauvallon. Lovely staff not stingy of good tour tips. Small downside: the hotplates in the kitchen area were in a dirty condition and there was no dishcloth or detergent, it's a shame. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Location good - on the edge of Beau Vallon, 1 minute to the beach. Directly on busy thoroughfare. Bus stop and shops nearby. I was disappointed with Beau Vallon. I expected more. Actually, only hotels and 2 streets that lead through the place that we are as good as dead. Nothing special! Beach very busy especially on weekends. I prefer the quieter beaches. Around the corner is the "Essmeile" with take aways and souvenir stalls. Restaurants around the corner. Spacious apartment with very comfortable bed. Breakfast is served on the private terrace, which is nice. Usual Seychelles breakfast, which did not blow me away (toast, egg, juice, tea / coffee, jam, fruit). Nice personel. On arrival I was told several times that I would have to pay if something broke in the kitchen. I did not need it! I had strange stitches, which could have been bedbugs or fleas. All in all, I find the value for money not appropriate. In Germany you would expect more luxury for this price. It was not really clean. Rather superficial. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
I can only repeat myself, all right Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were kindly welcomed by Enda, the good soul of this facility. We had in the far right house the room on the first floor, which was for us the nicest place in this area. The breakfast we were served by very dear ladies always on the balcony. The street noise was considerable, but we knew that before. On the other hand, you are in a prime location, fast on the beach and in the action. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
You have to emphasize the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, as well as the central location. We were answered in detail with rental car, tips for bus driving and every question and helped. The room is clean and on request the towels are changed every day and the bed freshly made. The bathroom is huge and has a huge shower. Very funny and pleasant is the breakfast on the balcony to get, the breakfast is typical Creole without much effort but good and adequate. We deduct a star for two small points. The water installation is unfortunately noisy as well, the road directly past the plant. Is probably the price for the very central location. The room smelled a bit "musty" at the entrance, but was once again ventilate OK The kitchen is very spartan (did not bother us, since we did not cook), for example, missing a toaster, there is no hot water at the sink, Only a kettle and two hotplates are available for self-catering. If both do not bother is here super saved. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Clean and well-kept area in the immediate vicinity of the Beau Vallon with friendly staff and good breakfast, which after "order" every morning fresh on the private veranda is served. Restaurants, take-aways and supermarket within walking distance. Unfortunately, the central location had the disadvantage that it was very noisy, especially at night. The rather busy road runs right past the complex and made more noise than expected (ear plugs!). Free Wi-Fi available. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The houses were modern and super clean. The service was perfect and the beds were very comfortable too. The houses are very centrally located on the beach and on the main street, which is really noisy, so I can not give 5 stars. In addition, felt that every second inhabitant owns a DJ system with MEGA subwoofer in the car drives through the area. But since this is more typical of the country, the music did not bother us, as were rather excited what a clear and bass sound from such a car can come. If you walk 10 steps, you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle. An Indian is 5 minutes walk, a restaurant is right next to it and also the "Nachtlaben" is right on the doorstep. To the beach you can directly with towel in bathing things without valuables or similar. to be towed. However, we had a phenomenon that nobody could explain. When we arrived, a pair of tourists complained about a lot of small bubbles on the body, especially on the legs, as if it were such a kind of small mosquito bites. After we were there for four days, we had them especially on the thigh and upper arm area. I had the beds completely searched, they were absolutely clean and great for me. Since we were in 4 houses in the Seychelles and it really only happened here and also other guests, it was a bit questionable. We do not want to include this in the reviews, because we do not know where it came from. However, we think that it is important to mention this. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The rooms are very clean and very spacious. Air conditioning works perfectly. Above all, the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners and the entire staff should be emphasized. Having breakfast served on the terrace from the apartment is just nice. A car for an island trip was organized at a reasonable price. And when a doctor's visit was needed, the neighbor drove with him as an interpreter. Although the location on the road to Beau Vallon bay brings with it car traffic, but you can feel the vibrant life of the island here. At 18.00 o'clock it is dark and the car traffic sets quickly. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful accommodation, right on Beau Vallon Beach, very clean, very friendly staff, breakfast was always good. I can highly recommend Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Size of the apartment was sufficient, bathroom was very large, size of the closet was not enough, breakfast on the balcony was great, very friendly and helpful staff! Room could not be completely darkened. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice accomodation, room huge. Due to its direct location on the busy street, it is very noisy, especially on Friday, Saturday and Wednesday evenings because of the bass boxes and loud music until late at night! Location top to the beach and pizzeria Baobap. Lighting in the bathroom a joke, nothing for wet razors. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice room, unfortunately the room had no fan, only air conditioning. In open rooms it was very loud, right on the main street. The transfer service Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Although this property is located on the street, but what you knew before, it is fully recommended. Delicious breakfast, clean and the people are very friendly and helpful. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
For late check out (actually only to shower again) are 100.- € already very much. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
In general, only once did we have to start a planned trip with a "half" breakfast, because the information was not given at the shift change and we were therefore no longer ready on time, because the bus was at the door and we had the breakfast had to stand. But have it over. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very loud and in need of renovation. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Convenient for the location and practical for the arrangement of large and bright rooms. The outdoor space is appropriate when breakfast is served on the terrace: it is pleasant to start the day so .... Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Clean and very well equipped apartments. After the friendly welcome with fresh juice we were initially assigned a ground floor accommodation, although we had booked the upper floor. The next morning we were able to pull up. This apartment we liked better. The proximity to the road and the Beau Vallons was the noise level a bit higher, especially on weekends, which did not bother us much. From the evening was for security always a very nice young man in the area. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice staff, having breakfast on the balcony is a good idea, but at the volume next to the main street it was often not a treat. Sometimes we had to go in to talk - a pity. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We had our accommodation upstairs, the rooms are very large, especially the bathroom. Friendliness, cleanliness and service excellent. The location: As this property is located on the main street, it is very noisy. The beach, 100m away, is a dream, due to the small beach promenade and the take aways very worthwhile. The breakfast is prepared according to your own wishes and served on the balcony, so the day begins quietly. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great guesthouse. Excellent service. Abundant breakfast served by very kind and welcoming staff. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Unfortunately a bit mufflige room due to the high humidity. Here, the operator would rather turn on the air conditioning from time to time. Otherwise very friendly and accommodating. Cleanliness could be a little better. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was very clean and very friendly staff, big rooms Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This complex is centrally located to the beach and the promenade. The apartments are huge and spotlessly clean. The delicious breakfast is served on the private balcony. All in all a great location. We were only picked up at 20.30 to the airport and had to pay 60 euros, so we could spend a few hours in the room, we thought that was a lot. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful large apartment with excellent breakfast service. the staff was very kind and available to all requests. Very interesting the location by the sea also due to the presence of the nearby colorful and fascinating market, where you can buy fruit and excellent fish cooked on the grill to take to your room and possibly warm up in the microwave. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Large spacious apartment. Very clean and 3 nice ladies who were very helpful. The main road and the construction site right next to are a minor annoyance. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very, very friendly welcome and the helpfulness is capitalized! We have received many valuable tips. Apartment generously cut. Beds are unfortunately too hard and pretty short. Breakfast was served in the room, delicious and varied. Location of the hotel is perfect! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything perfect! Accommodation: Price for Seychelles top! Location top! It might disturb some, close to the promenade and traffic, but no problem with us. This makes everything quickly accessible. Staff: Very, very friendly and helpful! The boss top! On the day of departure until pick up in the evening another room for use! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
