A beautiful beach side studio with character. Private veranda with sea view. Bedroom with two fans, two single beds or one double, inside sitting area, bathroom with electric shower, kitchen with all amenities, Wi-Fi, private garden and parking.

The space

Sunset Beach is one of the most beautiful locations on Mahe. While snorkelling you may see turtles, rays, bat fish, octopus and much much more. The beach is shady and off the road, unprotected by reef and easy access into deep sea.

Guest access

Sunset Beach is located 3 minutes from Beau Vallon Beach by car or bus, where there are numerous restaurants and water sports available.

Interaction with guests

After providing guests with the initial orientation and where abouts of amenities, we like to leave our guests to explore and discover more independently, but we are always there for any questions and queries about where to find good fish, markets, sim cards and ready to help out with any bookings etc.

Other things to note

Living in the tropics is the dream for many, but it is hot and sweaty, it can be humid and there are bugs, strange smells and ants. These are part of the precious environment in which we live and something that not everyone expects. Our studio is not a modern, sterile accommodation, it is open air and part of the more natural environment.

We had fantastic holidays and the studio was perfect. Just 2-3 minutes walk from one of the most beautiful beaches in Mahe with some great snorkelling. The studio itself is very private, clean and well equipped. The location was perfect and we didn't have to rent a car as you can easily catch a bus or hitchhike to get around the island. The dogs and cats are additional benefit and make you feel like home. All of them are very friendly and since we love animals we truly enjoyed their company after days out. Lucy and Herve are great hosts and eager to help with any enquiries but at the same time leave you lots of privacy. We couldn't ask for better holidays and we will definitely recommend the studio to our friends and family. Thank you very much!!!

Thank you to Lucy, her husband , son and all the pets for amazing stay. Location is the best, there is beautiful beach just across the road. Maya and Izzy-both dogs were lovely and spent very good quality time with us. Lucy and her husband were very helpful with anything needed. Nice one bedroom studio with good equipped kitchen and patio with nice sunsets. Thank you

Lucy's studio is gorgeous, comfy and in the most perfect location. We have just spent there the holiday of our lifetime (and we're not a newly wed couple!). Sunset Beach is the best on the island and it is just across the road from Lucy's house; a snorkelling heaven that tops some more famous beaches on Mahe and La Digue. The buses are great; we did alright with no car, shopping for food in Beau Vallon and Victoria. We did not use restaurants at all, cause we had great fun cooking and eating at the studio in the company of Lucy's pets. They are probably overfed now. (Sorry for that.) We loved the dogs quite a bit but the cats stole our hearts. If not for the border control, they would fly back home with us. Lucy and Herve have got everything right, including the balance between being helpful and chatty and leaving their guests in peace. First class hosts, first class studio. Highly recommended.

Great little place and good value. Just across from a beautiful little beach and up the road from Beau Vallon where there are a fair few placed to eat and quite a spectacular view. Although a studio the outside space provides a nice area to watch the sunset with a drink while the adjacent kitchenette is in a separate room and perfect for cooking breakfast...I'm sure you could whip up something more adventurous if you put your mind to it! Nicely decorated with a simple rustic charm and the hosts were very welcoming.

The family of Lucy is very nice. They are very supportive. The place is few meters away of sunset beach. The studio is super clean and the kitchen and bath perfect too. They helped me a lot with the transfer from jetty and airport too. This is a great option and the price worth it.

Sunset Studio is a beautiful space to unwind after a long day exploring Mahe. You are only moments away from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and a short walk/bus ride to Beau Vallon and it's amazing restaurants and street food. Lucy and her family are kind and gracious hosts. They provide lots of privacy but are there to help with anything that you need.

Lucy's place provides a unique experience. It is completely open to the elements and without air conditioning, but if you are prepared for that, it is really quite a find. It comes with a lovely patio area and a well-stocked kitchen (salt, pepper, oil, etc. from past travelers is there which is nice - and there are of course pots, pans, utensils, etc.). It also comes with filtered water that tastes great - no need to buy bottled water here! The location is also good. While it is on a road and you do hear cars from time to time, it is also just opposite a lovely beach (Sunset Beach), which is great for snorkeling. It is only a few bus stops away from Beau Vallon - we walked once from the main strip in about 45min. There is an okay take away about 10 minutes away by foot (open only for lunch though) as well as two markets. Lucy has two adorable dogs and two cats - one cat adopted us and turned out to be the highlight of whole stay. Come with a few mosquite coils and be prepared to sweat a bit and you will have a lovely time!

I love our garden, outdoor life, the sun and good food. Life needs time to relax and enjoy all that Seychelles has to offer; natural environments, the sea, sun and people. We enjoy sharing this with our guests, pointing out good places to explore and discover, many of which are not on the beaten tourist track.
