This is a lovely, light and airy studio apartment situated in a wonderful lush green area in the picturesque north of Mahe. It has everything you need for an incredibly comfortable stay and is within 15 minutes drive to Victoria and Beau Vallon!

The space

The area is absolutely lovely and peaceful and the sound of the ocean is incredibly relaxing. The studio is ideal for couples or a small family of 3 to enjoy as the perfect base for their holiday stay. The apartment is fully equipped with A/C in the bedroom as well as in the kitchen and the decor is simple and tasteful and adds a really pleasant vibe to your stay.

Please note that we do not have a baby cot to provide. If you are staying with a child or infant that requires their own sleeping space, then please book for an extra guest (3 guests total) and we will arrange the sofa bed to accommodate the third guest (child/infant). If you plan to bring your own baby cot or for your infant of less than 2 years old to share the double bed, then it's no problem.

All children above 2 years old count as extra guests.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire studio just to themselves which has it's own separate entrance and is on the upper floor of a semi-detached duplex. You have your own free parking space in front of the apartment. Downstairs is a separate apartment which is occupied by our family member.

Interaction with guests

Someone from our family would always be at the property to welcome guests and show them the studio and explain everything when guests arrive. My children, partner and I do not personally live nearby the property but my brother lives in the ground floor apartment downstairs, and when he is around or if we come and visit him, we all welcome interaction with guests and love to get to meet new people and make friends. We are always reachable by phone or email 24/7 if guests need anything at all including advice etc. We personally access the apartment every 4th or 5th day to come and clean and change the towels and linen for bookings of 7 nights or more. If your booking is less than 7 nights, we do not perform a cleaning session during your stay.

Other things to note

We have Wifi available for an extra charge.

Sandra's place was beautiful, clean, well kept! She had some snacks and water for us in the fridge, as well as, soap etc for the bathroom. It is directly across the street from one of the most beautiful beach spots we saw on the entire island. It's very close to several really good resturants and only about a 30 min drive from the Airport. Sandra was friendly but it does take her a little while to respond. She is a great host and if Mahe is where you need to go then she has a great place! The only issue we had was the directions provided to reach Sandra's were very difficult to follow (with no cell service or wifi GPS wasn't possible). I you have not been to Mahe before and you don't know the area it can be a difficult place to find especially at night. Also, the charge for the wifi at Sandra's was about 10 times higher than any of the other places we stayed. The Seychelles in General (not related to Sandra but definitely need to know if you plan to visit): Mahe itself is ok but it's very big, driving is difficult if not dangerous, there are limited places to get food. It's either expensive resturants not open for breakfast or lunch or the supermarkets which sell mostly dry goods and no hot food. The locals are not friendly. At all. In fact, we found there wasn't much in the way of hospitality on any of the islands. Asking questions often got us a rude response. The young men on the islands are the friendliest by far and our experiences with them were definitely present (taxi drivers, snorkeling diving tours, etc). On Silhouette when we were at an expensive resort everyone was very friendly. If we had to do it over again we would spend all of our time on La Digue, Prasline, and Silhouette (the best of all three).

We just came back from a wonderful trip to Seychelles where we stayed for 5 days in Sandra's apartment at Machabee. Right from the time we booked it online, Brigitte (on behalf of Sandra) communicated with us and put all our doubts at rest. She was wonderful in answering all our queries and as the journey came closer sent us a detailed list of things. Sandra's brother was waiting for us at the airport and he drove us to the apartment. Sandra met us there and welcomed us in. The place was wonderful, the right size, clean, with enough utensils to make your own meals, shops close by...yet isolated enough to never feel we were in a busy place. The balcony was the best part of the house and we (like most others) spent maximum amount of time their. It overlooks the see and a secret pathway leads down to a rock outcrop which is ideal for sitting and enjoying oneself. There are couple of compact beaches walking distance from the house or one can easily take the super efficient bus transport system to various spots on the island. Sandra was very helpful in telling us about the buses and organising the various pick ups and drops at odd hours. We felt wonderfully at home and look forward to returning to Lulu's Hideaway again!

This appartment has everything what do you need for the great holidays in Seychelles. Best view, best beach with natural swimming pools and best opportunity to take a bus to another places. Sandra was very friendly and was always ready to help us with daily things. Fully recommended.

A great place to stay. Beautiful view. Sandra is a nice host. Very kind of her to stuff basic food amenities on the day we reached her hideaway. U can sit by the balcony, sip a drink, relax, enjoy the sunset by the ocean ,all at the same time.

We had a lovely three day stay at Sandra's place and highly recommend it. There is a small rocky beach just accross the road in front of the house, perfect for an early morning swim to get the day started. Sandra also left some small things in the fridge for breakfast which was really appreciated!! Great time!

Everything was perfect we had such a nice holiday and we like to thank you for your and your brother's warm welcome and your efforts. The appartment was very clean and it was very nice to sit at the balcony at evening and watch the sunset. We also would advise to rent a car its not expensive and we had lots of fun exploring Mahe' and its awesome beaches. We will recommend your place and if we come to the Seychelles back our choice is already done :)

A proud mama of 2 beautiful children, I live for the love of life and for those I love! We are a typical Seychellois family, we all enjoy meeting new people and we hope to share our little home with travellers from all over the world who would like to experience the island way of life and enjoy a comfortable and secure stay in a wonderful part of the island. We would love to have more opportunity to travel and explore the great big world as a family and hope that by joining Airbnb we will have the opportunity to do just that!
