    We had a really great stay at the Seashell, upon arrival lady Chantal welcomed us with fresh fruit drinks and Cindy prearranged our visit to Anse Georgette, one of the nicest beaches in Seychelles. House is perfectly clean with spacious rooms and beautiful garden up in front. It is located in nice part of the island, with supermarkets, bus station and airport in nearby. Cindy is probably the most helpful house owner I've ever met, and really great person, she helped us with everything and even cooked dinner for us. I would definitely recommended this place to anyone.

    The house owner, Cindy is a very helpful person who can help you in everything. The location is fine with nearby bus stop and 5 mins. drive to airport. The house is well equipped with enough space.
    This is our honeymoon trip and the first time in Praslin. We stayed in Seashell with unexpected treatment from the house owner. Welcome fruit juice, refreshment and very nice decoration on the bed that all are giving us very good impression. Cinda is very kind to arrange urgent pick up where as we changed an early flight without prior notice. She is very helpful to contact the travel agent for next day 3 island tours and help us to call a taxi to the jetty for our leaving. We thank so much for everything especially the breadfruit chips and a delicious fried fish at our last night stay.

    Owner, plenty of space, proximity to beach and airport
    Excellent stay! The owner was wonderful, with great manners, welcomed me with food and drinks, even though I would spend only one night at her establishment. She also helped me change my Air-Seychelles ticket by contacting the airline herself on my behalf. She also arranged for a taxi to pick me up from the Jetty and drop me off at Praslin airport. Close proximity to the beach (less than 5min walking) and to the airport (less than 5min driving). The staff of Seashell(gardener, cleaning lady) were very smiley and polite.

    Comfortable Villas with Fantastic Owner Service”
    Fabulous Owner, Washing Machine and Large Spacious Accommodations
    We had a delightful stay at the Seashell Self Catering villas. We celebrated a birthday whilst we were staying there and the owner & host Cindy went out of her way and had our villa decorated with balloons, flowers and flower petals scattered on the floor. The bed was also decorated with flowers spelling out 'Happy Birthday' and finally we were presented with a birthday present and card. We were simply stunned that such effort was made and really appreciated this kind gesture from Cindy. Also she was most helpful in arranging access to a private hotel beach which was beautiful and would not have been possible without her assistance. Thank you Cindy for your hospitality and if you are looking for self contained accommodations with all the comforts of home please consider staying at the Seashell Self Catering.

    One of the best places I've ever stayed!”
    When I arrived in Praslin Cindy (the owner) upgraded me to Seashell Beach Villas. It is incredibly beautiful, right on the beach, and very spacious apartments. It is right opposite a bus stop so very convenient, and a short 10 minute bus ride away from the entrance to beautiful Anse Georgette. There was a cleaner every day who made the place immaculate and Cindy went to extra lengths to help me during my stay (providing free laundry, cooking extra food for me when she cooked for her family, taking me to a local Seychelloise festival). I had such a wonderful stay here that I booked an extra couple of nights than I had intended. A home from home, please stay here!

    Very Nice Place; recommended for all, esp. families!”
    Excellent host. Very homely atmosphere. I would recommend Cindy's place to anyone visiting Praslin. It needs to be said that the beach is more attractive in the other side of Praslin; but again, that doesn't take anything away from what she has to offer. Also, if you have a car (recommended) to tour the place, no beach is far in this small island. Anse Kerlan beach (where Cindy's home is located) is also nice and unique. The bust stop, beach and food options are also at walkable distance from her home. Though a short stay, me and my family had a very good time at her home. We were also pleasantly surprised to have the fresh fruits, welcome drink, cold towels, breadfruit delicacies etc. offered by her. She even helped us to pluck few fresh breadfruits to carry back to our place. If at all I visit Praslin again, I don't need a different place to stay.

    Too good to be true ”
    Sea Shell was amazing from the beginning to the end. We were so lucky to stay whole 2 weeks and we really felt like at home in paradise. Cindy, the owner and the cleaning lady are really wonderful people, that really really care about your wellbeing. The house was cleaned everyday, but you have the independence of doing your own cooking. And if you don't feel like cooking, you have the "Castello" hotel right next door to go and have served nice plates. The beaches, apart from having been "visually destroyed" by the huge cement stones the Seychellois government decided to put, are still amazing. If you are looking for peaceful relaxing combined with nice contact to Seychellois, you are definitely at the right place at SeaShell. Also, the price-quality relation is very good!

    Great access to Anse Georgette”
    Access to Anse Georgette, friendly/helpful proprietor
    Very clean guesthouse. Easy check-in/out. Really friendly owner. But the biggest reason to stay here is to have access to the two fantastic beaches, Anse Georgette & Lazio. First, it's about a 45 minute walk to Georgette through a resort (which will allow you to pass through with prior notification from the guesthouse owner, just ask). Anse Georgette is amazing, and is well worth the walk. As for Lazio, one word of caution: I would not recommend taking the mountain/jungle hike (which originates inside the resort compound) from Georgette to Lazio. On the map, it looks closer than it truly is. At times, the path thins out and it becomes a bit difficult to navigate. It takes a minimum of an hour and a half. Instead, beginning from the guesthouse, you can take the bus (5 rupees, a few minute ride, recommended) to the road terminus at the western end of the island or just walk west (take the right road uphill when the road forks before the resort). From there, it's a 30 minute+ uphill slog which takes you by a private residence (house with flowers), and then down to a secluded stretch of Anse Lazio with a self-service bar with an interesting and talkative owner. Another word of caution: the restaurants we tried on this part of the island (Chinese? and Capricorn are fairly expensive and not really good.

    Perfect.”
    Clean, close to the ocean, affordable and above all: most attentive and caring owner!
    Seashell Self Catering turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. It was chosen especially because of price, which considering location seemed to be far better than other self catering apartments on Praslin. Spacious, clean, all kitchen appliances you could wish for ... and even washing machine. Cindy, the owner couldn't be more helpful - bringing us each morning a fresh fruit plate and giving us every possible advice regarding the island. The ocean is some 30-40 meters away, beach is not the best on the island but can be enough for the 1st swim. Just on the beach is Capricorn restaurant, extremely tasteful food. Not cheap, but worth what you pay for. Bus station is just a few steps down the road and small shops (food and souvenirs) are at the same distance. Most pleasant memories and would stay again!
