The sundowner corner in the garden of the Beach House where you dine al fresco, relax with an evening cocktail....

Other side of the garden (opposite from Sundowner Corner) which also is directly on the beach.  Families love to sit under the shade of the coconut trees....the parents nap or sunbathe and swim while the kids play endless hours in the Sand.

Kids can have a picnic as the house features an Ikea plastic and chairs for the beach.

Great stay on the perfect beach!!
Left on 08/23/2013 for a stay in July 2013

We visited in July with my parents and 3 children. So relaxing, its set in a tropical garden and anse Forbans beach is at the doorstep. we spent most days right on the anse Forbans beach. We picnickned on the beach in the shade of the coconut trees- the kids with their own table from the house. Every night we had drinks on the beach and our meals in the garden.

The house has all a family needs and it is well kept, clean, comfortable.The house, beach and garden are just like the photos. Julianna gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home. Other great beaches are nearby too and there are 2 restaurants in walking distance and a store. We will be returning!!! Thank you Julianna!

SEJOUR MAGNIFIQUE. La Villa est très agréable, avec un emplacement privilégié direct sur la plage et la mer. La situation sur la côte nord-est de Mahé est très sauvage, Idéale pour visiter le sud de l'Ile et néanmoins à 25 minutes de Victoria. Location auto est indispensable, car l'endroit est relativement perdu ( l'Hôtel Allemanda était fermé, la seule épicerie du coin peu achalandée). La "maid" Juliana est charmante, et les propriétaires ont eu la délicatesse de nous appeler depuis l'étranger pour nous souhaiter la bienvenue. Merci et bravo pour votre accueil et coin très charmant.

"Séjour fantastique!!! Il s''agit réellement d''une villa pieds dans l''eau (accès direct à la superbe plage d''Anse Forban). L''accès se fait par le bout du jardin et la plage est quasi privée. De plus, elle est loin des standards touristiques et conserve un charme parfaitement tropical. L''annonce est conforme en tous points. Les propriétaires et le personnel sur place sont charmants et très serviables. L''île de Mahé n''est pas grande et il vaut mieux rechercher un séjour en famille sur une plage de rêve. C''était le cas nous avons été comblés."

"Quelle magnifique location : l''expression les pieds dans l''eau y prend toute sa mesure !!! Le logement, le jardin, la plage, la mer ... aucune fausse note. Les prioritaires sont réactifs et disponibles pour préparer au mieux le séjour. Sur place Juliana et Sylviana sont spontanément aux petits soins avec nous pour nous permettre de profiter au maximum d''un tel séjour. Louer une voiture sur place rend le séjour plus simple. Un pays et une maison à conseiller."

Description of the Beach House

contact us at:  villa.danseforbans@gmail.com

The beachhouse is a beachfront, first line house on the beautiful & undeveloped beach of Anse Forbans - 20 steps away from the front door of the villa. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/views-of-anse-forbans-beach.html Don’t be fooled, some ‘beachfront’ properties have a road between the house and beach. Ours is directly on Anse Forbans beach. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/birds-eye-of-beach-house-anse-forbans.html  We bought the property in 2005 and have since undertaken several rounds of renovations.

The beach house is nestled in a private enclave with only one other house to one side and on the other, a vacant beach parcel of 4000 square meters - making the beach house a secluded domain with almost more than 100 meters of quasi private beach. Privacy and tranquility have been further enhanced by a high wall and fence around the perimeter of the property (completed Feb. 2014)  A 20M high granite formation to the rear of the house further enhances privacy and shields any noise from passing traffic. It features an expansive terrace on the front and side with an outdoor teak dining table and chairs for 12. It has 3 indoor bathrooms in addition to an outdoor shower perfect for washing away the salt of the sea. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/outdoor-shower-at-beach-house.html

At the high water mark, there is a corner shaded by coconut trees and is ideal for sundowners & evening meals. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/sundowner-corner-at-beach-house.html Alfresco dining takes on whole new meaning with the waves of Anse Forbans lapping at your feet. The photos on this site show Anse Forbans beach which is directly in front of the villa. There is a photo of the garden with the sundowner corner tucked away to the left behind the palm tree. Turtles sometimes nest in front of the house at the highwater mark. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/nesting-turtles-at-beach-house.html We enjoy sea kayaking in the calm waters of Anse Forbans and we have two kayaks:  a large kayak that fits 2 adults + child and a second kayak perfect for one adult. The entire house has A/C with each bedroom and the living room has cathedral double height ceiling with fan + 24,000 BTU A/C.

Long peaceful nature walks whether on Anse Forbans beach or in the nearby undisturbed forests are popular with our visitors. Kayaking, swimming and snorkeling amongst the schools of fish await at Anse Forbans and just a 600 meter stroll away is the famous surfing beach of Anse Parnel beach. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/kayaking-at-anse-forbans-beach.html

It is also the home of Surfers Restaurant and features fresh grilled fish and elaborate cocktails on the beachfront - from 10am to 10pm. 1.5 kms away is Chez Batista which has as all you can eat buffet under a thatched roof and tables on the sand. A local grocery store is only 200 meters away – step inside and you will be taken back to the Seychelles of yesterday with the warm service of the proprietor. Children love running through the garden or playing on the beach while the parents can lounge nearby on the beach or on the terrace.

The Beach House features four bedrooms – all with orthopedic spring mattresses. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/bedrooms-in-beach-house.html

There are three bathrooms. See  http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/bathrooms-of-beach-house.html

The kitchen is fully equipped with 4 gas burners, an oven, a microwave, electric tea kettle, an oversized refrigerator and freezer, and a toaster. There are plenty of pots and pans and a full table setting for 12 people. See http://seychelles-beachfront-villa.blogspot.com/2011/12/dining-room-of-beach-house.html

Our Location
If at the highwwater mark of the Anse Forbans beach, simply walk 20 short steps through the garden to the front door of the beachouse. Otherwise the Seychelles International Airport is 14km from the beachhouse and approximately 20 minutes driving time.  The beachhouse is also serviced by public transportation at the local bus stop, 250 meters away. Bus service can provide access to many of the nearby local beaches including Intendence (5 minutes away), Anse la Mouche, Anse Royale/Fairyland, Anse Copra, Port Launay.

Are you interested in owning a piece of paradise....just a two minute walk away from the Beach House, the Domaine d'Anse Parnel awaits....see http://seychelles-paradise-for-sale.blogspot.co.uk/
