About La Désirade

La Désirade is a self-catering guest house situated in the village of Pointe au Sel, in the district of Au Cap on Mahe Island, on the south eastern coast. It is made up of three large one-bedroom, ocean-facing Studio Apartments, each capable of hosting two adults and one or two children.

The affordable yet comfortable and tastefully decorated studios, positioned right on the beach, offer you a base camp from which to journey through our beautiful Seychelles.

Each open-plan, air-conditioned apartment has a fully equipped kitchenette and a bathroom with a hot and cold shower. The rooms have direct telephone lines, Wi-Fi and TVs. The apartments have patios facing the sea and the rising sun.

Since La Désirade is self-catering, we do not offer any meals, however there are two restaurants within walking distance and two shops close by, where you can buy your groceries.

The guest house is safe and family friendly and welcomes all travellers looking for affordable self-catering holiday accommodation in the Seychelles.

The apartments offer parking for guests, 24-hour CCTV security and transfers to and from Seychelles International Airport. We offer a daily chambermaid service and laundry facilities on request.

Absolutely magical. Close to shops with good fiod and good prices. Snorkel from your doorstep and listen to Bob Marley from island while seeing the most beautiful fishes. Best accomodation . Best beds and best location. We were booked on Eden Island for rest of our stay but we travelled back to Desirade daily for swim and snorkel. Real Seychelles with lovely Yvonne and helpful Anne Laure.We will cherish our time at La DESIRADE

In my opinion this place was the beautiful place ever. Everything was so perfect, we had our own private beach, the house is right on the beach. Anne arrange for us a pick-up taxi, and a car for renting. Yvonne was there everyday and help us with whatever we needed. Nearby 3 supermarkets (at 200-350m), a Bakery (200m). Kitchen had everything we need. Internet is ok but only in the house, not on the terrace. Barbeque grill on the terrace, we used coconuts to grill fish and pork ribs. We will return for sure, i hope this year!

Nous avons tout apprécié à La Desirade. Yvonne, qui nous a accueilli et conseillé tout au long du séjour, est un soleil Seychellois à elle toute seule.Ensuite, c'est un endroit calme, apaisant. La route juste derrière la maison n'est pas gênante du tout vu que nous vivons côté mer. Snorkeling très riche à partir de la plage mais il faut s'approcher de la barrière de corail. Literie ferme très agréable. Appartement de plain pied lumineux, spacieux et fonctionnel. Ménage fait régulièrement. BBQ à la demande. Clim et Wifi inclus. Parking privatif. Facile d'accès. Épiceries- mini market un peu...

Location location location. This is what makes La Desirade desirable. Stunning views with easy ocean accsess . Furniture and equipment a bit dated and tatty , but most things that you need are there. Would be good if each unit has a barbeque grill and not having to share it between 3 units. Wifi slighty unpredictable and hot water very unpredictable .Stunning Pointe au Sel bakery just up the street and Kumar Kumar a handy well priced supermarket. Kafe Kreole and OLE recommended eateries.All things considered good value for money.

We stayed at La Desirade for 4 days at the beginning of our holiday and enjoyed our time there very much. Its location directly at the beach is beautiful. The place is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped.Yvonne took great care of us. She is an angel! You can reach beautiful beaches very easily with the bus that runs every 15 minutes or so. Or you just jump into the water directly at the bungalow. It's a great place to enjoy beautiful sunrises or listen to the waves as you fall asleep.Therefore, we went back to La Desirade for the last 2 days of our holidays. I totally recommend that...

Resplendent with exotic birds and trees, this crescent-shaped, two-mile beach is still pristine. A perfect location to try out some snorkelling.
