The perfect place for little money”
My wife and I stayed at the villa koket during 8 days for our honeymoon. I was worried because it was our first time in Seychelles. But now I would have made the same choice for my staying on mahe! The place is wonderful, better than on the pictures! The best price ! This is a 4 star hotel with a price of less than one star! First the good! - 2 coconut to drink when we arrived - the view!!! - the beach! - the pool! With shower outside - the perfect breakfast! (Fruits, eggs, bacon, bread, jam, juice, tea, coffee, milk) - the free WiFi!!!!!! (really rare thing on Seychelles!) - cleaning done every day - phone available - you can ask for dinner if you don't want to cook or go out (Brian is really really good cook) - brand new apartment! Everything is new! With a good decoration! (really rare in Seychelles) - the great balcony with long chairs! And table! - brand new air conditioning - flat TV - the kitchen is perfectly equipped and they gave us 1 bottle of juice, 1 of milk, 1 of water, really good when you arrive. - really calm place, only the noise of the waves, what a dream! - the staff is really nice and welcoming - free car parking inside the small complex - small complex of 2 buildings with 4 Appartements each (8 total) - bus stop not far (but I recommend you to rent a car to visit Mahe) - market not far The bad - A dog barking every day of the neighbors - not many channels working on the TV - the front and the way to the beach could be cleaned (on the other side of road remove leaves, branches etc... ) and a little path could be made (at the beach) - the beach is not really swimmable because of the rocks and waves, but that's not their fault, so to swim you can go a little further on the beach Thank you everyone for this great beginning of our honeymoon! We hope you the best for the Villa Koket! Continue on this way! We wish to come back again!
Villa Koket was a very good choice for our stay in Seychelles. We stayed there for 9 nights and it was a wonderful experience. The apartment was clean, spacious, with really comfy bed and a very nice terrace facing the pool and the ocean. The kitchen is fully equipped and some very nice ladies were changing towels every day and cleaning the apartment every 2days. The villa its located aprox 15min driving from Victoria and Beau Vallon and right in front of the ocean. You have a supermarket few minutes walking and the bus station in front of the villa. Don’t miss Carana Beach (5min walking). It is one of the most beautiful places we’ve seen on the Mahe Island. Brian, the owner, and the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. We will come back!
Authentic, clean accommodation in the heart of a Creole village”
It is easy to go to the Seychelles and stay in another branch of a hotel chain. This villa is set amongst the houses of locals, who are all so friendly and ready to welcome you to their beautiful island. The villa was very clean and comfortable, with excellent facilities (oven, hob, fridge/freezer, shower as well as a beautiful balcony with deck chairs overlooking the Indian ocean). Brian and Natalie were fantastic hosts; very knowledgable about their island and extremely accommodating also. Brian arranged a car to be delivered to the hotel for us and was always at the end of the phone if we needed anything. I would highly recommend staying here if you want to enjoy a peaceful, comfortable yet very authentic holiday.
Home away from home”
Villa Koket is a place to be described as home away from home. Brian, you are a wonderful person and so down to earth. Your staff is so very warm and friendly to, Natalie :) you are the best. We arrived almost 6 hours ahead of our scheduled time and called Brian from the airport. He said we could keep our luggage and move about since we arrived early, and to our surprise when we reached the room was ready and cleaned. Brian thank you for your kind courtesies and sorry you had to rush for us. Thank you and hope to see you soon.
Everything just fine”
Clean, calm, very close to the beach, good swimming pool, pleasant territory with easy parking, nice owners, local Indian shop in 200 meters, no people around. Beach with rocks in the water. 50 meters to the right is quite comfortable place to swim without rocks. A little noise from the road, but traffic is almost absent in the evening (1 car in 3-5-10 minutes). General caution: its bad idea to go outside for a walk with children - roads are very narrow and totally without the pavements (its common for all the Seychelles islands).
Great value for money. Very clean. Great, helpful staff. Great location. Highly recommend to anyone.”
The manager was very helpful , very knowledgeable of the island, gave us recommendations of where to go and what to see. We turned up at 6am and he was there to greet us. We left at 3am five days later and he was there to make sure our taxi arrived on time and we got off safely to the airport. He even cashed money when he went into town for us. Each morning were served a delicious, very filling, healthy breakfast. The rooms were cleaned daily. The apartment was very spacious , very well equipped and extremely clean. Lovely balcony to relax on. Great air conditioned bedroom. Also the apartment was very well lit. A BBQ was also available if we wished to use it. The pool was refreshing and very clean. Honestly I have no complaints at all regarding this place. I would recommend it highly to anyone wanting to relax close to the beach away from the town.
Great self catering villa with helpful staff, clean and better than most pricey hotels in Mahe”
Our stay at this villa was wonderful and owner Brian was very helpful. He organised excursions for us as well providing additional helpful information. The view from the villa was breathtaking even thought the beach right in front is not swim-able, however, you can swim at the beach 5 minutes away. Thank you Brian, I had a lovely time!
Great villa, terrible location”
We really liked the villa but despite the fact that all the other reviewers found the location to be ok, we were extremely disappointed as all the nice beaches were at least 1h away. All the good restaurants were also at least 30min away. We also had an inconvenience with the transfer to the airport as when we arrived nobody showed up(we called and we were told that indeed nobody was coming for us and we were to take a cab to the villa) and then when we left for the airport we asked specifically for a bigger car because we had a lot of luggage. Unfortunately, we were shocked to see a small car arriving to take us to the airport and we literally had to go with the bags put on top of us in order to reach the airport in time.
Disappointing, but good internet”
Booked this hotel about 2 months before arrival. Had requested a nice view as we were on a budget honeymoon, but unfortunately got a room on the ground floor. When we arrived there was noone there, but a sign was on the reception with a number to call. This was alright as we hadnt given our time of arrival in advance. Spoke to a nice lady on the phone, who said a male colleague would come and show us to our room. About 10 mins later a gentleman came by, didn't introduce himself, and showed us the room. I wasn't happy with it as it was on the ground floor. I told him that we had asked for a better view before, and he replied saying this is the only available room, as others had already been booked in advance. 'So are you taking it or not' is what this guy said, I asked if we had any option, to which he said no. This gentleman turned out to be the manager, so needless to say I was very disappointed with how we were received. I spoke to the lady on the phone (her name escapes me), and she said that we could move into the first floor room, on our last day, as the occupants would move out. But when the day came the family had apparently extended their stay so was unavailable. The room itself was very nice, included kitchen, tv lounge, bathroom and bedroom. Cleaned daily. There were 2 bottles of water and 1 pack of juice in the fridge which was quite nice of them. Internet was included, and was fast. Breakfast was simple, fresh fruit platter, and ommelette with toast but was filling. I had read reviews before booking this thinking the beach was just opposite the road, which is true, but couldn't go there after sunset as there was very minimal street lighting. It also hindered the view, especially if youre on the ground floor, because youre basically seeing the road, with the sea in the background. I was disappointed with my stay here as it didn't live up to my expectations from the reviews. I wasn't happy with the ground floor room, but would have been okay with i
I couldn't of chosen a more perfect place for me. Ticked everything off my wish list. Overlooking the sea from my balcony. I could hear the sea at night in my bedroom. Nice modern apartment with everything I really needed. The apartment was cleaned everyday. Breakfast was fabulous, by the swimming pool, backdrop of the forest. Close to the bus-stop, easy to get around, local shop near by, the location was beautiful! Staff very friendly, Brian was awesome, available to arrange trips and give information. I had a late evening flight, when I left. That wasn't a problem, as Brian let me stay in my apartment, what a chilled out day. Brian had arranged for a taxi to take me to the airport. I would highly recommend this place, it was tranquil, peaceful and a great location for getting around. Defiantly made my holiday! Thanks!!
If you want a quiet place its perfect. Just a little far away of civilization but you can rent a car or take a bus ( very cheap) . The ocean is only 20 m away but the beach its a little rocky, but you can walk 7-8 minutes in the left and find a good beach .
Very relaxing environment, ”
Greate apartments 50m from sea. There is also Great Carana Beach 500m away.
The place was very uncomfortable due to hard wood furniture in tiny living room with no couch. TV was really a computer monitor with few channels. The owner and staff are very nice but this place is not on our return list. Location seems a bit sketchy too with rehab center located too close for comfort and we did not feel secure here. Pool was okay but nearby beaches were a bit dangerous with strong currents.
property was good in all senses. brian was good but the lady managing the housekeeping show was somewhat detached. pool was of no use for adults as it is no more than 20 ft long. over all good to stay and enjoy Seychelles.
Very nice villa, clean, beautiful view, also kindly owner, help us with every question. Thanks, surely recommend!
Une belle résidence dans un beau pays”

Que du bonheur....
Merci à Brian et son équipe pour leur accueil et gentillesse ! Nous recommandons la Villa Koket, établissement raffiné et entretenu avec goût et soin ! Fred
Super Unterkunft. Alles mit dem Bus erreichbar, leider nur am Tage. ”
Diese Unterkunft war unsere beste auf den Seychellen. Alles vorhanden, super sauber(jeden Tag gereinigt). Gepflegter Garten und Pool. Sehr nettes Personal. Der Strand vor der Unterkunft ist leider sehr steinig bis nicht benutzbar. Etwas weiter links geht es dann, Badeschuhe sollte man aber auf jeden Fall benutzen. Mit dem Bus(20) kann man aber etwas weiter nördlich schöne Strände finden. Zwei Läden sind nicht weit entfernt. Mit den Restaurants sieht es da etwas schlechter aus. Eins befindet sich zwar etwa 1,5 km enfernt nach links bergauf in einer Hotelanlage, da das Abendessen aber erst gegen 19:30 Uhr beginnt, es schon dunkel ist und kein Bus mehr fährt, wollten wir die enge und kurvige Strecke nicht zu Fuss zur Unterkunft gehen.
