koellnerjens hat mehr als Recht
Leider haben wir bei Airbnb gebucht und nicht erkannt, was wohl seit langem bekannt ist. Schwamm drüber, unsere Schuld! Total verdreckte Hütte! Man ist sprachlos, wenn man das sieht. Man tut dennoch nichts, weil man als Deutscher ja sowieso die Dinge kritischer sieht, wie man selber weiß. Man sagt auch dann noch "looks nice", wenn man den Brechreiz kaum halten kann. Schmierige Oberflächen, die seit vermutlich Jahren nicht mehr gereinigt wurden (Wasser und Chlor), ekelhafte Bäder mit schmutzigen Handtüchern. Gestank überall. Hier sieht man die Grenze der freien Vermietung von Ferienhäusern auf den Seychellen. Nicht alle privaten Eigentümer sind dazu in der Lage. Die Kehrseite einer Liberalisierung, die aus dem kleinen Seychellois, oder zugereistem Seychellois- Freund einen perfekten Ferienhausvermieter machen soll. Das funktioniert genauso gut, wie man aus DDR-Bürgern über Nacht Pommesbudenbesitzer machen wollte. Wir haben diese Unterkunft nach zwei Tagen verlassen, warum soll man sich den Urlaub versauen? Wir können koellnerjens nur recht geben! Wir haben uns eine neue Unterkunft gesucht. Nun, es ist etwas besser. Aber man erkennt das gleiche Problem. In Hessen sagt man: "Die kieges nett gebacke" In ein par Tagen sind wir auf Mahé, da haben wir auf Tripadvisor gebucht, sind voll der Hoffnung!

Preis-Leistung mehr als fraglich !
Leider haben wir das Haus/ Appartement in einem schlechten renovierungsbedürftigen Zustand vorgefunden. Bei unserer Ankunft war das Haus voll mit Fliegen und Mücken. Die Möbel, vor allem die Schränke, z. B. in der Küche hatten einen unangenehm moderigen Geruch. Der nette Eigentümer offenbarte uns direkt zu Beginn, dass der Eingangsschlüssel nicht gut passt und somit die Tür schlecht zu öffnen ist. Eine Herdplatte ist defekt, die Duschen sind schlecht einzustellen und nur bedingt durchgehend warm. Der Eigentümer empfiehlt Wertgegenstände dringend in den Safe zu schließen. Es gibt durch die alten Türen viele Eintrittspforten für kleinere Tiere und Insekten. Dem Eigentümer ist ein sparsamer Umgang mit Strom, Wasser und WLAN wichtig. Ein Auto ist für die Unterkunft dringend zu empfehlen, da bis auf die zwei schönen Schnorchelstrände und einen Mini Kiosk nichts in direkter Nähe ist. Für eine Zahlung übernimmt der Eigentümer die Transfers von und zur Fähre/Flughafen. Eine ausgiebige Renovierung oder ein deutlicher Preisnachlass machen unserer Meinung nach Sinn. Die Kommunikation mit dem Eigentümer ist gut und auch er weiß von dem dringenden Renovierungsbedarf.

The client should not have been surprised to find flies and mosquitoes! Seychelles is a tropical destination and the House is surrounded by natural beauty including many trees.The stove is not broken but one of the four rings in the ceramic hob has failed,The doors to the House are not old and there really is no space for small animals to enter! Insects can come in easily through open windows. The wi-fi was offered freely and there was no restriction in its use, although the client was asked not to download films: this advice was ignored and over 25 Gb was used by the clients in a very short time. I thank Mr Kollner for his observations.

Set Up Above Beautiful Secluded Beach
Great location overlooking the wonderfully remote Anse La Blague! John (the owner) was a welcoming host, inviting us for a traditional Creole dinner and dropping us off back at the ferry at the end of our stay.

Nice and calm place near the beach
The House is a comfortable accomodation with a lot of space even for a big family. You will enjoy the hot showers in the bathrooms and the fabulous view from the terrasse on the sea and the nearby beach. Veronique and John were very generous, helpful and friendly hosts. They gave us a lot of details about various excursions on the island. Thank you, we hope to come again.

Beautiful and quiet located with the wonderful beach just a doorstep away
We are a family with 2 children who chosed to spend 5 nights here and we were very pleased. This is a place for you who appreceate a quit stay.The owner Paul was very friendly and picked up us at the Airport. You can easily take the bus wich goes regulary just outside the door - very cheap! We also got to rent Pauls car for a few days wich was great! The beach is just a few step away down the road. This is were we had our best snorkling on the Island. Lots of turtles! We also got a little snorklingtrip with a local boatman who Paul recomended us to look after. A very charming man. Our kids (7-9) loved the stay as much as we. We cooked our own food and if you need just eggs, fruit, bread or drinks there is a Little shop just a short walk from the House

Décevant
Nous avons passé 4 j dans cette maison et avons été bien accueillis par John.Effectivement l'environnement a un air du "bout du monde", avec ses 2 petites plages plutôt sauvages, accessibles à pieds. Même si l'arrêt de bus est à proximité il ne faut pas rater les quelques passages de celui-ci. La maison est équipée de manière très sommaire pour 6 personnes. Nous avons été surtout surpris par la 3ème chambre qui contrairement aux 2 autres est très petite et comporte une fenêtre donnant sur le couloir et non l'extérieur! Un vrai placard! Ne la cherchez pas parmi les photos, elle n'y est pas! Enfin nous avons dû affronter une colonie de chenilles aux poils urticans, attirées par le manguier, nous donnant fortes démangeaisons et irritations (l'un de nous a dû voir un médecin à l'hôpital). Nous avons dû abandonner la terrasse pour le salon.... Bref nous étions plutôt contents de quitter cette location, dommage!

The problem with the hairy caterpillars has affected many tourism establishments and is regretted.There is no easy solution, apart from cutting down trees. The third bedroom is rather small but is air-conditioned and the absence of a window onto the exterior is unfortunate but cannot be changed. The description on the web-site will be amended to reflect this.

A nice house with wonderful host
Host and his wife were very helpful with accommodating us. They gave us lots of tourist advice, including boat packages to different islands around Praslin. The area around was nice and quiet, with a warm and peaceful atmosphere and we had no trouble getting around as the area was very convenient and relaxing. The house had everything we needed, like wifi, hot water, a stove, cooking utensils, toiletries, etc. They even helped us wash our clothes and hang them outside our house, which was always kept clean and tidy everyday. This is overall a great place to stay if you want to have a relaxing but fun time in Praslin.

Want to stay in quite place - here is
I spent one week in the House with friends.The place is scrupulously clean and we had everything we needed.The location is quiet and the House is surrounded by some splendid trees.The two beaches, which we walked to, were ideal for snorkelling and we had these beaches to ourselves.We rented a Jeep from John which proved to be a sensible option because shops are a bit far away and there are not many buses.

Relaxing holiday in a stunning part of the world.
The House is very clean and comfortable - a real Home away from Home. It is located in a lovely peaceful and unspoilt part of the island.The two nearby beaches were always deserted when we went and they were perfect for our small children to play in the shallow waters.There was also, a large well-kept garden in which they could play. The accommodation represents extremely good value for money.
