Cove villa is tucked away right on the corner of Cerf Island on the sea-front. It is one of our wonderful Seychelles honeymoon villas, and like all our villas, has plenty of privacy. Although we may refer to it as a ‘honeymoon villa’, it is by no means only for honeymooners on holiday in the Seychelles, and is ideal for all couples due to the layout and secluded setting on the island. This one bedroom Cerf island villa offers a large air-conditioned double bedroom, an en-suite bathroom, open-plan kitchen and living room with dining table, and a large couch, as well as a spacious veranda with reclining furniture. This private holiday villa is perfect for a romantic getaway or a Seychelles honeymoon, and ideal for both short and longer stay accommodation in the Seychelles.
When you stay in Cove, you will find local Cerf island beaches easily accessible at low tide, or you can take advantage of our complimentary kayaks. Local restaurants are located on Cerf Island and if you venture to Mahe, a short boat ride away, we can direct you to a range of shops and restaurants.
Please see below a list of our standard services, but we always do our best to go above and beyond!

We have had four amazing days. Enjoyed breathtaking views from the terrace, soaked in the lounge pool, while sipping from the freshly cut coconut, a hospitality by Michel. Walked around the Cerf Island, snorkeled all the way to St Anne Island and kayaked to plenty secluded and gorgeous beaches. Thank you Christine, for a delicious welcome meal!
We will fondly remember this endulging stay!
Branka Maucec on June 2017
South Point Villas were a really great experience for us.
We stayed here for 3 days and we enjoyed the silence, the fantastic service from Michel, the stunning view to the sea and the luxury apartment. We recommend everyone to enjoy holidays like this!
We hope we can come back one day.

We loved out time at South Point Villas. The view from the porch at the cove villa is breathtaking. The staff were kind, helpful and welcoming throughout out stay. We enjoyed kayaking around the island snorkeling and fresh coconuts thanks to Michel. The atmosphere is relaxing here in Seychelles. We hope to come back again someday. Thank you for helping us feel at home during our stay at the villa on the shore.

We have just had the most relaxing, peaceful and enjoyable week here at South Point. It is so refreshing to experience genuine hospitality, Michel and Christina took the time to share their beautiful Seychelles - from talking politics to harvesting our own coconut milk to learn how to make Creole curry - it really was the most memorable stay.
The place is totally unique and has real character but also provides you with the privacy you sometimes need to unwind and rest at your own pace.
We particularly enjoyed kayaking around the island and spending hours over the edge of the jetty looking at all the colourful fish.
We will be coming back!

Dear Michel and Christine
We are already the fourth time in the Seychelles and fell in love with these islands. We have already seen much of the world but as beautiful as we never stayed. This outlook and this tranquility is incredible and beautifully.
Christine and Michel are wonderful and very concerned about the welfare of the guests. We'll be back. Certainly :) on this beautiful island.
Once again we would like to thanks Michel for all his help. Thanks Michel

Wohoooooo!!! Thanks much to Michel, Christine and Christina!
We just spent 4 amazing days for the last part of our Honeymoon and we are so lucky having met such an team! The stay here was simply amazing, exactly what we where looking for - a little island where it is so good to chill out and where you can really get some privacy do to the way the villas are built. Palm Villa is really cute and we felt so well here, everything is cosy, the decoration is so beautiful, the best so comfortable. We defnitely don't regret having picked up this accommodation. We had really great time enjoying an private swimming pool and the sun on the long chairs.
Coince on August 2015
After 4 nights on La Digue and 4 nights on Praslin we finished our holiday here in the South Point Villas on Cerf Island. And here we found the most relaxing atmosphere on our whole trip through the Seychelles.
The villa was incredibly lovely located and the view from our veranda was breath taking. The reef between the resort and the Cache was the best for snorkeling we have seen on our whole trip.

Dear Christine, dear Michel!
Thank you sooo much for your helping hands.
I visited Mahe, Prasline and La Digue in 1995 and 2005 with my 2008 deceased husband. Lots of things changed, but not the warmth and kindness of the Seychellois.
One of my derams was, to stay on Cerf Island for a few days. Now it came true and my new love and I had a wonferful time. The cosy atmosphere and Michel's smile make South Point Villas incomparable. We'll mis it!
Nicol on April 2015
Dear Christine, dear Michel
Thank you very much for your kindness and for helping us in any way. This is a special place we will never forget the view, all the different coloured fishes and your dinner you cooked for us was very very delicious. Thank you again for everything, this was a perfect stay at Cerf. We hope we can take the sun with us to Germany!

Scheffers on April 2015
South Point Villa is a small paradie hideaway on Ile au Cerf. Each day is different: waking up at sunrise to catch the plane or the ferry: taking the catamaran to visit other islands (Praslin, La Digue etc...) or hiking up through the lush vegetation of Mahe island : getting up late to take a canoe trip to look for the dream beach to spend the day.
After visiting Victoria, the lovely small Creole capital, one is eager to get back to Ile au Cerf to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the balcony and savour the delicious dishes prepared by Christine.
There is easy access to snorkelling and for the sportsman you can do the 4km kayaking around the island or close to Sainte Anne, Round Island, Long Island etc...The Cove villa is perfect for a romantic getaway for two. It is a well-designed secluded villa and extremely comfortable with air-condition and clean set of bed linen.
We don't regret the time spent on the internet to find this little jewel.
Michel and his team were always present when needed but at the same time respected our privacy.
Thank you Michel, Christine and Christina, I wish you all the happiness of the world.
Patrick Thibaut on March 2015
Dear Michel, Christine, Cedric,

Dear Michel, dear Christine,
We now enjoy the last day in this wonderful place - on the terrace (balcony? Sorry, we don't find the right word in english) of Cove at the beautiful South Point Villas at Cerf Island. Although we are sad that it is already our last day, we are very happy that we found this remarkable place on this planet. You and the place itself helped us to relax and feel calmed down. We take a lot of pictures with us. In our memories and real ones. It makes it easier in many years to remember. But no one knows perhaps we see us soon. Thanks for your friendliness and for everything!

It was a perfect spot to hide away from all the world. Many thanks to Michel and Christine, they helped us with our cooking and adventuring ideas. Christine's curries are unforgettable and Michel's redsnapper is much better than it was in a local restaurant. Thank you all, it was a dream to visit such a place, a dream that came true!

Buckowitz, Germany on April 2013
Since many years it was a dream to visit Seychelles. So many places and resorts, beautiful pictures and spa's, clubs, bars, suits and superior suits to choose from. I wanted to feel the ocean, it winds, its flaour and sounds, nothing more, and nothing less. Your place was the perfect hideaway, the perfect place to calm down. And I found what I was looking for. Thank you very much for your kindness, excellent service and hospitality.
Looking forward to come back.
Marcel, Switzerland on April 2013
Thank you so much to be always there and taking care of us so incredible well. We finally "found" the treasure of Seychelles when we got to South Point Villas. What a dream. What an unforgetable experience. And to the owners congratulations and thank you to share your property. We'll come back for sure!
Dear Michel & Christin:

Staying at South Point Villas is a prvilege and a pleasure : peace and privacy; the view of Cacheé and the channel between; easy access to good swimming and snorkelling; kayaking around Cerf.

Dear Linda, Cedric and Michel,
The South Point Villas are the perl of the Seychelles. And our stay was medicine for the soul. Its hard to find words to describe our feelings. Its just overwhelming overall.
The interior designs of the villas are made with so much love. Everything is perfectly made.
A big thank you to Michel. He is a warm hearted man and took care of us in a outstanding way. We will never forget these 4 days and we are sure that we will come back for a longer stay. Thank you very much, take care and hope to see you soon.

It was a big luck for us having found this calmfull, quiet place on Cerf Island with such a beautiful nature. We thank that its difficult to find a second place on earth, where you can relax so much to get strong enough again for the struggle of daily life.
Michel and Christine completed these lovely days with their permanent help and kindness. Michel introduced us in "Cuisine Creole" so that we can carry home something special in our minds from Seychelles. Its a wonderfull place to stay and we are looking forward to come again.

There is nothing bad about the South Point Villas. Thank you Michel for doing everything for us, at any time :)
The food, Christine prepared for us, was absolutely awesome. The view from the balcony could not be better. If you are looking for an awesome place where all troubles disappear, choose the South Point Villas. You can enjoy the astonishing view from the veranda the whole day or go for a trip with the kayak around the island.
Thanks for all and see you soon.

When you arrive to South Point Villas, you understand that this is a place to be and that its much more than you could have expected.
When you stay here, you realize that all problems are being solved here and the biggest are that you have is to decide on which awesome beach you will go next day. When you need to leave this place, you only dream about coming back here!
Thank you Michel and Christine for making the paradise even more real (and for Bacca and Kalou :)

South Point Villas Cerf Island will remain in our memories as one of the most heavenly places of all. Thank you to Michel Estico who showed us what a true Island Holiday is about, from the stunning accommodation with the most beautiful views, and so beautifully maintained to the shopping in Mahe and experiencing local cuisine and fruit. Michel's local knowledge and experiences allowed us to do trips etc we may not have done as "tourists". This is a holiday in every sense of the word and we will return - time and time again!
Sharon M from Johannesburg, South Africa on August 2012
This is the place for wonder hospitality in a perfect location. Michel and Christine are the perfect hosts. Cove Villa itself is large, clean and well provisioned with everything you need, with a large deck overlooking the Indian Ocean. Whilst there is no direct beach access the water around the jetty abounds with sealife, where octopii and rays are easily spotted. Wonderful white sand beaches are only a 5 minute kayak around the corner, or walkable at low tide. The island is only ten minutes by boat from Mahe. There are very few places to which I would return, but this is one.
kidda67 from Hong Kong, China on February 2014
It was a pleasure for us to stay for several days at this fantastic location with its natural atmosphere. We enjoyed the ocean with swimming, canoeing and especially snorkeling admiring the variety of so colorful fishes.
Many thanks for your great hospitality always looking after us and our needs. Also thank you for picking us and our luggage up elsewhere as agreed. Particularly we will remember the grilled red snapper and the creole fish meals - great!
Kalbe, Germany on August 2014
We were looking for peace and solitude. A place where you can let your soul, far away from mass tourism. This wish came true here. Thank you!!! And thank you for the super delicious food and caring all-round support.

So sad to be leaving this magical place. It was the last location of our mini Seychelles tour and what a place to top it off! Thank you for your hospitality, skippering and friendly smile. We have enjoyed every moment of our time here and we will never forget our honeymoon on the tropical island of Cerf. We very much enjoyed the fish you got us from the market. Red Snapper on the BBQ and fish curry...yum! We enjoyed the snorkelling, kayaking and exploring Cerf and Il Cache (little island), so many colourful fish to watch especially under the jetty!

To Michel, Christine + Christina thank you for making us feel so special during our stay. You have gone above and beyond to make this the perfect holiday. Michel for taking care of all our needs, always with a smile! We will never forget the boat ride with the dolphins. Christine for your amazing food.

So peace for now, see you soon!
Forslund, Sweden on September 2013
I worked many years as a guide and saw many countries with great accommodation and realy good service, but I found neither in South Africa, Maldives, Botswana, nor in USA, Tanzania, Malaysia or other places that what you have heavenly silence, perfect nature/ok the weather god was not to friendly to us but that couldn't reduce our pleasure. Wonderful accommodation with beautiful interiors, and not at least Michel and Christine!...and this all in once place!
Thanks for everything, fruitchips :), Christine's fantastic curries, Michel's great redsnapper, his interesting information about the country and the people and his perfect hospitality.
There are so many beautiful places on the world I still want see that I have no time to visit the same places more than one time but South Point Villas on Cerf Island are the great exception.
We see us soon!
Ps. Don't forget the tremendous view of the Indian Ocean
Eminovic, Germany on September 2013
Dear Christine and Michel,
We had a lot of luck finding a site on the internet referring to South Point Villas. It looked quite romantic and calm and in fact our stay here was exactly what we hoped for - romantic, easy going, relaxing and quiet...
The setting is great! We enjoyed a week in the "cove" villa and it fully met all our needs. Sometimes the wind was a bit heavy due to the chamge of the monsoon. We enjoyed snorkelling, paddling with the kayak to ile caché and to some lovely beaches nearby.
Michel and Christine made out of this nice place a special one with their kindness and helpfulness. Christine prepared a wonderful dinner for us and Michel took us to Mahe to show us some nice places, he cooked a curry for us and helped us whenever he could. In addition he was very patient answering lost of questions about the Seychelles and the seychellois :).
We will keep you and this special place in very good memory and maybe we will be back one time. Thanks for everything!
Sascha, Switzerland on September 2013
What a wonderful place to start our lives as husband and wife! We really sank into the island spirit with the welcoming, warm, personal and friendly service from Michel and his team. These augmented the breathe taking setting, facilities, sea, sun, food, snorkel and swimming in tropical paradise! We have enjoyed every minute and could not have wished for a better honeymoon, we will recommend South Point Villas to everyone.
Matthew & Kelly Draper, Durban, SA
Draper, South Africa on September 2013
We had an amazing time in South Point Villas. The villas are located in a great spot opposite ile caché and the interior is very tastefully decorated. The highlights are:
(i) the amazing view of the ocean (enjoyed a great sunrise from the comfort of the bed) which, together with the sound of the waves and the tropical birds, forms the perfect environment to relax;
(ii) the great hospitality from Michel and Christine; they arranged everything (transport, food, delicious homemade creole cuisine) and ensured that we had an unforgetable experience. There is much to do here including snorkelling and paddling with the kayak to nearby beaches and islands. A true paradise highly recommended and we will make sure to return for a more extended stay.

Dear Christine, dear Michel,
Thank you so much for the time we spent here in the villa Cove. It is a wonderful place and we felt as if we would be in paradise. Snorkelling behind the rocks next to the boat station is unforgetable, there are many and beautiful big fishes. The temperature of the water is great. The view from the lands to the ile caché is unforgetable and we spent much time getting this view. Michel and Christine helps whenever they see our English is very weak, but we had no problem understanding each other, they are very honesty people. Thank you so much for the private feeling and relaxing we had here. We would like to write much more about our feelings, but as I said, we have many problems with the language. I only can say - Cove is the real paradise on earth!
Eleonora & Ernst, Austria
Ernst & Eleonora, Austria on November 2013
What a place to come down sitting on the veranda looking over the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves and the music of nature around. One could stay there for hours and days if there wouldn't be the beautiful water for swimming, snorkelling and taking the kayak around the Cerf. You drop into the water and find the most colourful and beautiful fish right before your eyes.
The villa is very comfortable and we felt like not wanting to leave anymore.
Our friendly and so helpful connection to the worl, Michel took so much care for everything, organizing the best red snapper with this beautiful cook Christine, cutting coconuts for us and just being a man of great hospitality.
This is the start of our Seychelles trip. We we would have known before what it is really like at this place we would have booked defnitely a week or more (or another four days at the end of the trip) :)
Thank you so much Michel for these outstanding days.
Krohn, Germany on December 2013
What an incredible place to begin a new year. Our stay at South Point Villas has been even better than we had hoped. This is a truly special place. Our comfortable, well designed and tastefully decorated villa was the perfect spot for relaxing. The large deck overlooking the sea...just waves and fruit bats to watch in peace. The beautiful gardens and nature all around to add to the beauty. Then, of course, the sea - we enjoyed snorkelling all around the island, as well as exploring in the sea kayak, Isle Moyenne and the tortoises is a fun stop, as well as the sand bank in front of Round Island. We also had a few excellent dive trips (dolphins, shakrs, turtles). The excellent food prepared by Christine and her sister was a treasured introduction to creole cuisine (octopus curry), and Michelle's hospitality and friendliness made our stay exceptional.
A special place in a beautiful country.
Gerd on January 2014
Dear Michel & Christine,
Having travelled much of the world, I can say with certainty that the accommodation and service are the best in the world. The effort and attention put into every action was noticed and appreciated greatly. It made us feel like true royalty! Michel always made sure we have transportation as well as the best information on things to do. The meals provided by Christine were worthy of any fancy hotel, but at a fraction of the cost! This really makes it an easy choice for any future trips to the Seychelles.

Cove Villa was the perfect way to spend our last week in the Seychelles. We have stayed on almost every island in the last few months but Cerf was the best for peace and relaxation. We have loved sitting on the terrace watching the waves. This is a perfect location, a neat perfect villa for two. We swam daily among brightly coloured fish and tried kyaking once finding it much too difficult for us oldies. Michel and Christine have looked after us well and we thank them. All we can say is our holiday here was just - you've guessed it 'perfect'!

To be on South Point Villas on Cerf was one of our best decisions. This place is so wonderful, the view fantastic a nd the rooms in Cove are beautiful. Michel was absolut friendly, and he also gave us help and advices at any situations. He showed us how to grill the red snapper and told us some interested stories about the Seychelles. Christine cooked all the typical creole meals, mostly fish in different preparations. So delicious! Everyone here was so kindness and we felt like at home. So we will remember for a long time of this amazing abidance. Thank you all, we want to come back. Christine, Christina and Michel, take care of you!!!

Gabriele Maier, Germany on October 2014
We spent a couple of very relaxing days in the Villa Cove and we loved it! We enjoyed watching the sea and the waves while sitting on the terrace - total privacy with nobody else around there. We also liked the activities we could do here - snorkelling, visiting some of the beaches by kayak, experiencing the animals living here.
Thank you Christine and Michel, for preparing the delicious creole style meals for us, for explaining us how to cook it by ourselves and for taking care of our travel issues at the beginning and the end of our stay at South Point Villas!
All together we had an unforgettable stay at the well-equipped and tastefully funished Villa Cove.

Andreas Schicht, Germany on October 2014
We have been in Seychelles 5 times, now second time at South Point Villas.
Nowhere did we ever have the feeling to relax so good then in this place.
Tourism grows in Seychelles and people have changed. Not here : Michel and Christine are still the same : calm, helpful and always present, if you need them. It seems, that time stopped here, nevertheless people developed, but not negatively. There is no need of a luxury hotel, you have a wonderfull nature around you and a perfect team to support you in everything without loosing your privacy! Where can you find this in your holiday?
We will always remember this beautiful area, and, maybe, come back again.
Thanks for Christine and Michel, have a good time.

Dear Christine, Dear Christina, Dear Michel
Thank you for all!
The days here couldn't have been better.
It was a very nice experience to cook with Christine and the action with the CD was really cool from you Michel.
All and all it was the perfect ending from our wonderful trip to the Seychelles! (relaxing, reading, snorkling and some trips with the kayak).
We hope to see you soon.

If you dream of an unique, peaceful and paradisian hideaway - this place let your dreams become true! A lovely, warm decorated house with a terrace with a spectacular view on the indian ocean. It will take approximately 2 minutes and you'll forget your stressful and hectic life at home! Thousand thanks t o Michel who guided us through Mahe, brought us to fantastic snorkeling spots or supported us while shopping - always with entheusiasm and a smile!

Dear Christine & Michel,
Staying at South Point Villas was a pleasure and wonderful experience. We enjoyed the peace and privacy, the view of the small desented island of Cachee and the channel between. Though no on-suite beach, there was easy access to good swimming and snorkeling just steps ways - from a practical floating dock. We saw Lionfish and Eagle rays on our first day. Pristine beaches could be reached by walking, snorkeling or kayaking. We enjoyed kayaking around Cerf Island in one of the double kayaks. The kayaks are absolutely necessary and will hopefully be upgraded when necessary. The accommodation is extremely comfortable, the view from Cove Villa is amazing. The villa was spotless and tastefully decorated.
Michel is a manager to be treasured and the twins (Christine and Christina) did their jobs well and with cheerfulness. Christine's creole cooking is a must.
Thank you for hosting us and for everything you have done to make our stay here unforgetable. South Point Villas is the best place one could ever want to stay at when visiting the Seychelles. We loved the location, the villa but most of all the good company and excellent going out of your way efforts to make everyone happy. We hope to come back in two years.
With deep appreciation and thanks,

We have 6 days of pure nature and privacy in one of the most beautiful places! The COVE VILLA is just amazing! The view from the balcony and the bedroom makes it very special. Michel the manager helps you with everything you need and if you wish, Christine prepares a typical creole dish, which we really enjoyed. The island is surrounded by lovely beaches and easy to explore with the kayak - what makes it a small adventure every day :)!
This place has every you need to relax and escape from every day life! Thanks again to the team of South Point Villas!
We see you hopefully again!

Our stay at South Point Villas was the high point of our visit to the Seychelles. The luxurious and well appointed villa with complete privacy that overlooks the magnificent ocean view with the soothing sound of whitecaps breaking on the reef ensured a comfortable and relaxing stay. The complimentary boat transfer, kayaks to explore secluded beaches, welcome meal and breakfast food were greatly appreciated. The caring staff of Michel, Christine and Mike were amazing, always there if you needed them but never interfering with the feeling of being on your own deserted island in the middle of the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean.
We loved our stay and hope to return.

We spent the first four days of our honeymoon in the Villa Cove. South Point Villas are the perfect hideaway location.
Michel, we would like to thank you for taking such good care of us. A special "thank you" to Christine for the delicision creole dish and the warm and open conversation we had.
Your hospitality made our first visit to Seychelles an unforgettable experience.

This is a place we will never forget. The ocean, the island and the view. But all of this wouldnt be like that without the helpful staff who cares really good. Thank you Michel for such a warm welcome, a perfect stay and a helpful goodbye. Thank you Christine for the nice food. Also the kayaks are perfect for getting around the island. We saw Manta-Rays and a lot of colorful fishes. We dont want to leave...
Thank you Seychelles for this beautiful time.

Nayyera and I having only recently married were gifted with staying at this beautiful serene and tranquil villa.

We both would easily return. Michel has been very helpful.
Thank you for making our stay so romantic.

We have spent 2 weeks in this wonderful paradise and it has gone so fast we do not want it to end. How can you tire of the beauty and perfect climate. We have enjoyed the wildlife and fantastic scenery and will remember the sunrise and full moon over the Indian Ocean forever. Thank you so much to Michel, Mike and Christine for looking after us all this time.
Thank you for the freshly cut coconuts!
And all your help advice and attention.

This was our first stay at the Seychelles. When we arrived we couldn't believe where we came to. Paradise. This is the most beautiful place we have ever been to. So quiet and peaceful living in the most amazing nature we could have imagine. The view from the veranda is just breathtaking and the sound of the ocean keeps you coming down. We couldn't imagine that a place like this exists but this is the truth. Chrstine prepared a wonderful meal for us that we really enjoyed much. Michel is one of the best prepared guys for any special cases. Christine and Michel were taking care of us so well that we are very thankful for that. They make this place every more lovely. Thank you for that. It is now very hard for us to travel on because what we get at Villa Cove was more than we ever expected.
We will carry on with more love.
Thank you for everything.

Thanks for 7 days in paradise!
For many years it has been our dream to make holidays in the Seychelles.
Now we found this overwhelming Cove Villa with the beautiful view over the ocean and the wonderful infinity pool in which we started every day on Sunrise.
We specially like to thank Michel and Christine for their hospitality and hope that many people will share this little paradise in the future.

My wife Pashayanti and I were looking forward to spend our last leg of honeymoon in this villa. We were pleasantly surprised to find the place even more beautiful. Waking up to the waves was incredible. View from villa was breathtaking. We sit in the balcony for hours listening to the waves. Everything in the villa was tastefully decorated. We did kayaking to the other side of the island and the experience was great. The hosts are really helpful and were accomodative of our needs. Thanks for that. Food on first day was yummy. The place is very peaceful and no less than a paradise. We will surely be back.

Celebrating Christmas away from 4 degress in Norway turned out to be a wonderful idea.
Our family of five stayed in two cottages, but we mainly used Cove during the days. Having breakfast and dinner at the porch with a magnificent view and company of the little prange sparrow was really nice.
During the week we have been kayaking, snorkeling and surfing the waves. We have seen shark (small one), tortoises, sting rays and fish in all colours - breaktaking - and the best snorkeling was just outside the hut. We would also like to recommend the breach at Round, including lunch at Jolly Roger Bar at Ille Moyenne. Thanks to Michel for all the help and logistics and thanks to Christine for the lovely food.
Happy New Year!

Spending a week in this incredible villa with this stunning view over the ocean was the most relaxing one which we have ever done. This is the perfect place to recharge the batteries of life. Waking up with a beautiful sunrise, enjoy breakfast on the balcony with birds and the little lizzards which were thankful for our fruits, snorkeling and kayaking are only some of the activities we could enjoy here. We g ot the impression to be the only two on this island but at the same time all our urges were satisfied through the perfect service of Michel and his crew.
We have seen just alot of islands like Hawaii and the island of the Mediterranean Sea, but we can say that you get nowhere else a better island feeling than at this place.

We are back for our 3rd visit to South Point Villas. Again, we were lucky to get our favourite Villa, "The Cove". The weather during this visit was incredible with virtually only 3 hrs of rain during our 2 week stay. The marine life, the climate, the fauna and the people live up to our expectations and more. The nearby snorkeling is great. We saw turtles, stingrays, sharks, squids and loads of colorful tropical fish. The kayaks are great and necessary assets which we used practically every day. We wish, however, that SPV would invest in more modern and lightweight kayaks. Michel and Christina are starting to feel like family to us. All in all, SPV has found a special place in our hearts. We will defnitely be back.
Best regards, Reidar and Guylaine Grindheim, Norway

This is our first visit to the Seychelles and we are delighted to have come to South Point. Great location views and hospitality, especially from Michel who was wonderfully thoughtful and helpful throughout.
Cerf is the perfect place to relax, and as a jump off point for visiting other islands. We took a day trip to Praslin and La Digue, but it was Cerf itself we loved most. Kayaking to Moyenne, which was really great, snorkeling nearby. Waking up to the waves, were all happy experiences and memories we will cherish.
Thank you Michel, Christine and Ashley!

We had planned to take a trip to paradise and paradise we have found. What an amazing place to spend our holiday. Villa Cove is very private and the view from the deck of the villa or from the swimming pool is insane.
We loved snorkelling and pretending we were the only one at the island (and sometimes we really were). The variety of fish is incredible and our absolute favourite was the little shark.
We would like to thank Michel and Christine for their hospitality and their entheusiasm and hopefully till next time.

We stayed in Cove Villa for the last 3 nights of our honeymoon. This is a true paradise. The villa with the private veranda and swimming pool is a true gem. We loved stayed here. We felt really close to the beautiful Seychelles nature. We loved the snorkeling spot at the jetty with "Doby the little shark."
We hope to come back in the future.

The villa is fantastic. Everything you need is there. The view is unbelievable. Also the private garden and pool is something special. Cove to sit here and just watching the ocean and the surroundings. The meal from Christine on the first evening was delicious! And Michel...he is very important for the place. To make you feel like home.

Our own little private hideout on the end of a tropical island in a marine conservation area, with stunning views, our own mini-pool and a sense of total privacy. We love this Villa as well. The bedroom and bathroom are VERY nice and the living/kitchen area has all we need. The large sofar is comfy and the kitchen is ideal for the two of us. Michel and staff here are lovely and warm and helpful.
What a perfect way to commence ourselves in a two week holiday.

What a fabulour place to stay! The Villa is well-designed with all mod-cons you might want on a quiet island. We loved watching all sorts of weather from our veranda with breath taking views, enjoyed kayaking around the island and exploring deserted beaches and loved discovering the marine life right on our doorstep. The pool is a wonderful bonus. Thans so much to Michel and the team for a warm welcome and for making our stay very comfortable.
Hopefully we'll be back soon.

It's a perfect place to escape from the hectic days at home.
Thank you so much for everything!! We'll defnitely recommend this place to our beloved ones.

This is probably the best honeymoon - location there is. We were absolutely blown away by its beauty. Inside and out. Having never been to the Seychelles before, we didn't know what to expect but everything we expected of was surpassed by South Point Villas. Michel is the perfect host and Christine cooked a fantastic first meal (thank you to both!). We went kayaking and snorkelling and simply relaxed on the deck. I hope to come back one day to stay longer as it is one of the most relaxing experiences I ever had. We will cherish this place for a long time.

After a busy summer, we were searching for three days of privacy, tanquility, great ocean views combined with a little luxury. We found it all and more at South Point Villas. From the moment Michel met us at Eden Harbour, the welcome with cooling towels from Christine and the revelation of the stunning location of Cove Villa, made us realise we were in for a special weekend. Christine's food is superb in taste, style and presentation. Nothing was too much trouble and we say farewell with happy memories of a stunning weekend.
Thank you and we hope to be back.

What a magnificently peaceful and beautiful paradise. Greeted first thing each morning by 'our' Madagascar fody pair and doves, kayaking over to a beautiful sorkeling spot, breakfast on our beautiful deck, Christine's fabulous early dinners while watching the bats returning to their evening hang-out on Ile Cache, and learning about Seychelles history and current events from Michel - all on a backdrop of spectacular colors and sight.
Thank you for sharing it with us!

We had an incredible week here at Cove, and not only because we got married! For the last week, we have been living in a dream of tripical paradise. Exept it wasn't a dream. Cove has been the most perfect place to completely unwind and de-stress ahead of our big day. We really felt like we were the only ones at the island at times. Days spent reading, paddling - kayaking, and watching the incredible wildlife. Michel and Christine went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and yesterday they surpassed all expectations. Not only did they help us with all the logistics in getting to our ceremony on the mainland, they also organised the most incredible, romantic sunset dinner for us on a beach close by. They thought of everything. Christine is an incredible cook and we can't thank them enough for their contribution in making our wedding day the most special and memorable day of our lives. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
