“Home away from home”
Reviewed September 21, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Ms. Flossy is very hospitable and accomodating. We had a wonderful time staying at her bungalow even for just a couple of days. Everything is complete, she even put some food and drinks for us in the fridge, and fruits in the table. She has also toured us around her garden. This place is a tropical paradise indeed in the middle of Mahe. It is a perfect location if you want peace and quiet while also on a budget.

“Lovely setting, great location and helpful host”

We stayed at Tropical Garden for 13 nights in February 2016.

The cottage is well positioned for exploring Mahe (car hire essential). It is possible to drive to the West coast (Grand Anse / Barbarons etc) in less than 10 minutes.

The cottage itself is accessed via a driveway that also serves the owners house, and several other houses belonging to her family. Whilst the cottage is private and isn't overlooked we felt very safe and secure. The grounds are lovely with a lush tropical garden. We enjoyed picking fresh starfruit from the tree and watching the wildlife, including geckos, skinks and a chameleon!

The accommodation is adequate and as expected for the price. It is well equipped for self-catering. We suffered from insect bites and feel that a mosquito net over the bed would be a positive addition, as would a deep clean in the shower room.

Flossy was an excellent host - very helpful and also kindly provided us with various fresh fruit. She also cooked us a delicious meal!

Overall we would strongly recommend this cottage as a base for exploring Mahe, and would be happy to return ourselves.

We just came back from a week spent at the tropical garden self catering .
We had a great time.
Our host Flossy made our stay even more memorable. She brought us fresh fruits from her garden and cooked us a local dinner as well. Thank you very much Flossy!
If you like tranquility that is the place for u to stay. In the middle of lush tropical vegetation, surrounded by nature. But it is just as close to everything being in the middle of the island.

I am very glad I chose this acccomodation.

First and foremost I would like to extend my kindest regards to the owner of this little place in haven Flossy. She made our two week stay very enjoyable and often made us feel like the hospitality levels of self catering merged with ones of a five star hotel. She made us feel very much welcome and we got to know other members of her extended family as well. Which contributed to a real experience of the local spirit and soul of the place. The location was a balance between being away from the civilisation and yet convenient to get around even by local bus service but the car will give you a distinct advantage, although I personally liked the busses as you get to know locals and it adds to overall experience. Property itself is surrounded by lush tropical garden and fruit trees as a bonus. While you can hear the road in a distance it doesn't effect the overall feel of being surrounded by the jungle. Property is clean and has everything you need to whip up a breakfast as well as a fancy diner. Flossy also treated us to some local cuisine. Bread fruit chips were fantastic snack however then she cooked us a three course diner consisting of local fish, curry, salad and souses. It was a delight. Over all the Tropical Garden has been a major part of our experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a genuine travel experiences and local culture and hospitality. My best wishes and kindest regards to Flossy, Patrick, Jan Paul (possibly misspelled) and Ned for their hospitality and kindness.
p.s.
Hope I got the names right if not please do forgive me I am still a bit woozy from all the scenery and natural beauty of Seychelles islands, people and ocean.

We get a very warm welcome on arriving.In the fridge was everything that we need for the first day.And a fruit basket as well.That is very nice because after this long journey we felt at home.It is a peaceful place in the middle of nature.No noise.The owners dogs are friendly.If the are to pushy,a bit water from the hose helps.A car is convenience otherwise consumed one to much time with waiting for the bus. We would definitely come back.
