“Just perfect”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed in the large 3 bedroom apartment for four nights and loved it. We = 5 people of three gerenrations, ranging from 7 to 70 years old.
The layout of the house with two bedrooms on the top floor and one on the groundfloor, each complete with their own bathroom, allowed for privacy and made it feel like we all had our own space.
We loved the lush garden which is full of colourful flowers and fruit trees. In the evening we sat on the balcony and watched the big fruit bats fly in and out of the mango tree.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need. One evening Peter made a BBQ for us with grilled fish, mango salsa and a sallad and it was one of the best meals we had all holiday. Great value too.
At the bottom of the garden is a small private beach, which was great for a dip and we also did some snorkelling. This beach, like most beaches on the Seychelles, changed a lot depending on the tide: at low tide it was shallow, quiet and still, at high tide the waves knocked us over.
We had a rental car and did outings to Beau vallon beach and the beach by Sunset beach hotel, which is great for snorkelling.
Last but not least what made Belhorizon a great place that I will remember for a long time, is Denise, the owner, who is a fantastic hostess and who made us feel so looked after. We were exhausted when we arrived after a 16-hour flight and I was a bit shaky after the first drive in the rental car (on the wrong side of the road, with a gearstick, on roads that were sometimes steep and narrow). Denise served us cold drinks, showed us around (including the generous welcome pack with fruit, bread, jam etc) and gave us all the information needed. She also spotted that I was not so keen to get back to the driver's seat straight away and offered to drive the rest of the family to Beau vallon to shop groceries, which I really appreciated. (Driving in the Seychelles was fine - nobody drives very fast - but the roads are quite narrow and windy and took a little getting used to). Denise also went out of her way to help when we had left a few wrapped gifts for our daughter's birthday behind when leaving Belhorizon. Denise contacted us on La Digue to let us know that we had left the things behind and to organise so that the presents were sent to us as soon as we returned to Mahé. During our stay Denise also gave us lots of valuable information and tips and we had some great talks about the Island and what not to miss. Staying with Denise felt more like visiting a friend or having a private tour guide at hand, than renting a home.
During our Seychelles holiday we stayed at three different locations. Each was lovely and they all had their benefits, but the whole family agree that Belhorizon was our favourite place. The reasons are many: the spacious and luxurious feel of the house, the beautiful garden which felt like our own slice of paradise, the secludedness, the proximity to great beaches and the exceptional customer service.
Thank you so much for a fantastic stay!

“Paradise found”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Bel Horizon is a beautiful self catering option on Mahe Island. My husband and I just returned and hated to leave - it was everything we had expected and more. The views are to die for, the private beach is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon, the patios overlook the ocean and you can listen to the ocean waves coming in all night. The apartment has a drinking water dispenser, fully functioning kitchen and an option for internet/telephone use through the local card system. Denise is a great manager/owner, willing to help or offer advice with any of our travel needs. With a rented car, you can see all of the key locations on Mahe island from here. Nothing is far away. We would fully recommend the Bel Horizon and would love to return!

“Paradise with a homely feel”

We fell in love with this place. Perfect for a couple. Felt like it was our honeymoon even though it wasn't. The view from your own private beach is incredible and it's so peaceful.

Close to a great village with shops and restaurants. We often walked it but it's a good 15 minutes.

The host Denise was very professional, helpful, and friendly with great local knowledge. All the staff were lovely, there when you needed them but always out of site so it felt like it was our own private space.

The island is amazing. So many things to see but you will need a car. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

“Peaceful and tranquil stay on Mahe Island”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Bel Horizon. We stayed in the one bedroom garden apt, which is elegantly decorated and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. The beautiful wooden veranda overlooks the well kept gardens which leads down to your own private beach. Denise, the owner, does an excellent job of always being available when you need her but never being seen when you don’t. This beautiful property is situated close to the amenities at Beau Vallon but far enough away to feel secluded. Pat the friendly Taxi driver is always available day or night to pick you up for £2.50.
If you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil stay on Mahe Island, I would highly recommend this property. We enjoyed staying here so much we extended our stay by 3 nights. A real gem of a property and excellent value for the price
