Our family holiday could not have been more perfect. Beach Kaz has absolutely everything one would want for a hassle free relaxing holiday. John surpassed service excellence from the time we booked and throughout our stay. He responded to all queries or requests immediately and was always pleasant and respectful. All the personal touches of fresh flowers, arranging discount for meals at a nearby hotel, a hamper of wine biscuits and chocolates on Christmas Day , accommodating our late check out and the the little Seychelles souvenirs on the day of our departure will always be remembered and appreciated. Marlene, the property manager, was a delightful lady who was tentative to all our needs and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and offered loads of information on best restaurants, snorkeling sites, excursions etc. The villa was cleaned on a daily basis - it was swift and we never felt inconvenienced. I cannot fault or find anything negative - we had a truly magnificent holiday. On our departure day all 9 of us were very sad to have to hug and say good bye to the 2 beautiful four legged friends we made "Dude" and "Lady". We loved their companionship on our walks on the beach, swimming with us in the shallows of the ocean and the comfort we felt knowing they were around at night keeping a watch over us all. They have a very special place in all our hearts. I would not hesitate in recommending Beach Kaz and if I returned to the Seychelles no doubt would book again with John. Thank you John and staff for making our family feel so special during our stay.
We spent a lot of time researching our family holiday this year, but once we found beachouse Kaz we knew that we had found our ideal location if the pictures and previous reviews were to be believed. Thankfully on arrival we were not disappointed!!
We travelled with two young children (0.5 and 2.5rs old) and were able to create the perfect set up. There were plenty of toys and bedding equipment and rooms to keep everyone happy both indoors and outdoors - there are great descriptions of what is included on the website and everything was as described when we arrived. The beach house itself is charming and the beds and furniture is all comfortable and in keeping with the laid back beachfront setting. The kitchen was really well equipped and there are additional features like BBQ, outside cleaning stations and Kayaks, as well as books and other nice touches to keep you busy.
All of the above was lovely however it is the location of the beach house that is the most amazing thing about it and also how this location works for families. Situated RIGHT ON THE BEACH FRONT - it feels like you have your own private beach to play on and beautiful bay to swim in. The views are really jaw dropping and the flora and fauna (my son loved the lizards, geckos, crabs, birds and fruit bats we found) really take your breath away. We felt privileged to be able to spend two weeks in such beautiful surroundings. It gets better. At the end of the garden the beach meets the grass making the perfect natural safe sandpit for our son - all in the shade of the local trees. Fantastic. The garden is gated, so no fear of the little man running off either. When the conditions were right the bay is like a warm bath perfectly clear and lots of fish to check out underwater! Top tip - take some beach shoes that you can swim in as it is a coral bay so there are naturally bits you wont want to catch your feet on. We used ours every day - as did our son - were very glad of them.
Then the best bit - the staff who manage the villa and the take care of all the cleaning (and washing or cooking [highly recommended] or you name it!). They were absolutely fantastic for our entire stay and really made us feel at home. We cannot thank t hem enough. We actually got married at the end of the garden in the shade of the trees and the help and support we got from Marlene and Juliana + the team was amazing. Above and beyond the call of duty - it made our day and they helped to make our holiday as special as it was. Thank you very, very much!
So in summary we had a fantastic holiday for many, many reasons, but it would not have been possible without the beautiful beach house, the amazing location and most importantly, the wonderful team backing it all up.
We will definitely be returning.
We stayed at the beach house for four nights in late October 2016. We = a family of three gerenations from 7 to 70 years old.
The villa has a real home away from home feel, with comfortable sofas and chairs both indoors and outdoors, a bookshelf full of books, games for all age groups, kayaks, a body board and lots of toys for smaller children.
The beautiful Anse Forbans is only steps away - literally. This beach like most other on Seychelles differs a lot depending on the tide. When the tide is out the water is very shallow and full of corall, but when the tide is in it is nice and sandy and deep enough to swim. Good for snorkelling too.
The manager Marlene took great care of us and gave lots of useful recommendations indluding where to find the perfect beach with calm waters good for swimming - Port Launay National Park! She also surprised us with a lovely birthday present for our daughter and a complimentary meal brought to the house.
We had several meals at next door Double tree hilton, which turned out to be one of the best value restaurants of our Seychelles holiday thanks to the 20% discount offered to guests of the Beach house.
Outings we particularly enjoyed included the wonderfully scenic Anse Intendance and the lush spice garden Le Jardin du Roi.

Perfect location for a beach vacation - steps away. House layout perfect for two separate families or more. This is our ksecond consecutive week here and would choose to return to this same home. Nice restaurant nearby, maid service on weekdays, fresh towels and linens, comfy beds and pillows. No dishwasher which was fine for our group of five. No clothes dryer but managed with sunshine and the dryer rack outside.
The large covered verandas are perfect for family gatherings and dinners. The tides can be heard rolling in. Plenty of yard seating and areas for children's play. Outside shower! Gorgeous landscaped setting. Just lovely!
Caretaker always available - thank you Marlene!
his was our second time at the Beach Kaz. While looking into where to spend our vacation this year we were reluctant to go to the same place as last year but...
We realized there's there's no point in fixing something that is not only not broken but perfect, for our needs anyway.
Julianna's cooking was excellent again, Marlene took really good care of us and the house, the beach and everything else was, well, perfect. It's hard to describe what having a proper house right on the beach means with a 6 and 2 year old.
It is now a home away from home for us and we're looking forward to returning next year.
